Mrs. Field thinks the West does

the spirit of the West.
The fair at San Francisco received
her unstinted praise. The Court of the

praise of the "pastel city by the sea,"

The rebuilding of San Francisco was
a marvel to her. That a place would
be laid low by fire as it wss and rise

Paving Berne Done on Sandy, Base
Line aad Powell Valley Rentes.
Way for Antes Outlined.
As a result of paving activity on
the Sandy, Base Line and Powell Val
ley roads the only feasible way to ap
proach the Columbia River Highway
at the present time Is via the Sec
tion Line road, which ia now In splen
The Base Line Is closed and the
Sandy and Powell Valley roads are so
badly torn up that motorists are ad
vised to avoid them entirely until the
way has been cleared sufficiently to
permit safe and comfortable travel.
The motorist intending to travel to
the entrance of the Columbia River
Highway should follow Hawthorne
avenue to Ladd's addition and drive
through Ladd's Addition to Division
street. The continuation of this street
Is the Section Line road that leads on
to' the northern edge of Gresham.
Instead of going south direcly into
Gresham or going north over the road
leading to the Twelve Mile House and
Fairvlew, the prcper course lies
straight ahead. After going east for
about two miles the road Jogs to the
right, then goes east again - over a
winding grade. The motorist then
drops down gradually until he comes
to a road to the left and soon after
making Ihis turn he crosses a creek
and then swings back north again
until he comes to a church building
at the corner. Then he 6wlngs to
the right and goes down a grade to
the Portland Automobile Clubhouse
on the banks of the Sandy River.
From this point all motorists are
familiar with the course leading across
the bridge and around the hills
through Sprlnfj-dal and Chanticleer
to the entrance of the Columbia River
Highway proper. It is possible to
drive to Crown Point, but the High
way from that point to Latourell is
closed for paving and all who wish
to continue beyond Latourell will
have to follow the old road that In
cludes the notorious Latourell hilL
The road beyond Latourell is open all
the way to Hood River and The Dalles.

Marshfield With Trip and Car.

spent on the coast, accompanied by
Mrs. Shaver and their guests, Mr. and
Mrs. J. A. English, of Hood River.
The party went through the Wil

by way of Roseburg to Myrtle Point.
They were as far south as Bandon and
made Coquille and other points, re
turning by way of the Alleghany route.
Captain Shaver said despite the fact
there are three peaks 1200 feet high
and the road was narrow, while in
places it waa muddy because of being
sheltered by heavy timber, it was ne
gotiated without accident, though for
35 miles chains had to be used. In all
more than 600 miles were covered.
DREDGE PIPES LENGTHENED
Deepening of Channel Necessitates
Chinook Extending Equipment.
ASTORIA. Or.. Aug. 2. (Special.)
To enable her to work more advantage
ously in the deepened channel at the
mouth of the river, the 30-lnch suction
pipes on the dredge Chinook were
lengthened yesterday by 10 feet ana
a section seven feet in length was
added to each of the 20-inch pipes.
This makes the pipes 88 feet long. The
new section arrived 6unday morning
and the work of installation was com
menced at once, so that the dredge
can resume operations on the bar to
morrow. While the thick fog prevailed at
the mouth of the river during a
good portion of last week, and the
dredge Chinook thus lost 24 hours, the
craft pumped up about 70,000 cubic
yards of sand and carried out to sea.
Since the Chinook commenced work
in that channel last April she has
handled 800,000 cubic yards, or ap
proximately 1,600,000 tons of sand, and
before the season ends she probably
will have removed fully 1,250,000 cubic
yards of material from the shoal at
the mouth of the river.
When she went to work in that
channel the deepest water was less
than 26 feet. Now the minimum is
between 33 and 34 feet, and in the
greater portion of the channel the
depth is 36 feet-

The action of S. S. S.. the famous blood
purifier, is direct from the moment it
enters the stomach. Unlike food that
must be acted upon by the digestive
Juices, S. S. S. goes at once into the
blood, and in less than five minutes has
traversed the entire circulation.
It now rapidly spreads its medicinal
action in the fine network of blood ves
sels and is like giving the blood a
thorough bath, to overcome eczema,
blood risings, boils and other eruptive
conditions. It can not harm any, part of
the system. It does not lodge' in the
joints as do mercury, arsenic and other
minerals frequently to bo found in
blood remedies. It is a natural medi
cine for the blood, just as essential to
health if germs have gotten the upper
hand as is nutritious food if after a
spell of sickness the body calls for nour
ishment. Wherever you go you are
sure to meet some one who used S. S. S.
for the blood and. is a willing witness
to its wonderful power to overcome
blood troubles. Tou can obtain S. S. S.
in almost any drug store in the TJ. S.,
a significant fact as to its worth and
its sterling reputation. Get a bottle
today. It will do you good. Write to
The Swift Specific Co.. 104 Swift Bide..
Atlanta, Ga.. if the directions with the
bottle do not fully cover your case.
