result of a carefully mapped out cam

men hop. to be able to prevent a re
currence of the disastrous situation of
the Fall of 1893. It Is understood mill

the demand, for th. obvious reason that
they do not intend to let "buyers who

Th. weekly trade barometer of the

during the past week there has been
a- noticeable increase in new Duelness,

The barometer ihovi that the com

approximates 69.600,000 tcnC The
amount actually cut was only 51.820,000,
owing to labor difficulties along the
coast, high water on the Willamette

Pacific .Railroad la a whistle which

sleep. From the calling of the troops
to Mexico to some wreck disaster the

run until an attache of the Southern
Pacific Company sent a man over to
the shops to find th. engine and
straighten out the klnlc. Then the
whistle ceased to blow.

ALB A NT, Or., June 25. (Special.)
On a farm near Halsey which is owned
by J. A. McCullough. of this city, a
turkey hen is raising six young China
