This was due to an unprecedented rise

the warm chinook wind thafhas prevailed
for the past 48 hours. An immense quan

been running, which was handled with
difficulty. But even the rise alone doe
not account for the muddy appearance of
Sb water, for the channel of Bull Run is
8o splendidly adapted to the source of a
city's water supply that rises have no
heretofore raised any sediment. It is pre
sumed that there was a small landslide
somewhere along the banks above the
headworks, which soon washed away. a
yesterday morning the water at the head
ofthe pipeline was again perfectly clear.

alias "Scraplron Watson" was sent to the
city jail yesterday by Judge Hennessy for
103 days. He spends considerable of his
time in the city jail, the police say, as
he has a strong penchant for Insulting
women on the street when he gets drunk.
Friday night he was drunk and disorderly,
near the corner of First and Oak, and
Officer Bulger remonstrated with him.
telling him he had better behave himself
and go home to bed. This advice made
TVatson all the more cantakerous, and
he struck the officer, knocking him down.
Bulger, however, hung to his man. and,
although less powerful than the burly

after a severe struggle. "Watson, how

the entire police department a piece ot
his mind, and threatened to have the
whole outfit Jired bodily next June.

n.Tjrc TT?AcKpnirriNG Lumber. Three
of the 1500-ton barges built by Hale &
Kern in Portland in 1SSS are now engaged
in transporting lumber to San Francisco
from Portland and Puget sound. The
fourth, which was recently resurrected
from the bed of the Lower Columbia, is
now undergoing repairs at the boneyard.

bought her back from the insurance com
pany, which raised her, and she will be
put in commission in the Gray's harbor

barges make very satisfactory lumber ves
sels, as they carry from 1,000.000 to 1,200.
000 feet each at a load. There Is little or
no marine risk attached to that method
of transportation; and they can be towed
from port to port with light expense.
Thefts at the Libbart. An overcoat
and an umbrella were stolen yesterday at
the Portland library, and an overcoat and
nmhrolijL were also stolen the day
before. The library officials have been
troubled very much of late by people
missing umbrellas, but the thievery has
never gone so far as overcoats until last
Friday. The librarians have been watch
ing the peoole who enter the building, but
have not noticed any suspicious charac
ters. The rack the articles were sto.en
from is directly In front of the office,
where one or more women are constantly
in attendance. A while back umbrella
racks were placed In each alcove and In
the periodical room, but most of the peo
ple still leave their umbrellas in the main

which Is held that same evening. At the
meeting of the board Chairman Strow
bridge will submit a full report for the

Places Wanted for Children. Among
the children at the Boys' and Girls' Aid
Society are two 14-year-old boys, for whom
the management are anxious to find places
in Portland. The superintendent says
they are good boys, and would like to hear
from merchants or others who would be
willing- to provide a home for them in
Teturn for services. There are also a
few girls, who can be placed In families,
who will school and clothe them; also, a
very fine 2-year-old boy for legal adoption.

Home, or call up telephone east 5.
Toted "With a Buzz-Saw. -J. C. Hil
liard, a Clatckanie sawmill hand. Is at the
Good Samaritan hospital as a result of a
circular saw crashing through the bones
nf the rlrht forearm. The surgeons, in
operating on the arm, resorted to the
bone-grafting process, and set in a piece
of new bone five inches long to replace
the piece taken away. Naturally, the
arm is very sore, and there is as yet no
assurance that amputation will not finally
become necessary. "When Hilllard met
with the accident, he was stooping under
an edger saw, trying to clear the sawdust
away with a scoop shovel.
Bust Season Ahead. The Klernan rock
quarries, some 10 miles above "Vancouver,
are being prepared for a busy season,
which it is expected will begin in the
spring. About a dozen men are now em
ployed rigging up derricks and extending
tramways, and when the weather settles
for good, the force will be increased to
125 hands. There is work enough on hand
lor two years yet, as about 500,000 tons
of rock have to be gotten out for the
Gray's harbor jetties. Work on the jet
ties has been suspended for the winter
on account of the neavy surf.
Work on Custom-House. The force en
cacod on the new custom-house has been
reduced to 90 men, 16 of these being stone
cutters, who are carving a granite belt,
In position on the second-story level. With
the exception of this piece of work, the
granite cutting is all done. The iron
structural work for the roof supports has
not yet arrived from the East, though
the fire-proof tiling is all on the ground.
This latter has been manufactured in
Portland, as well as the "book tiling" for

SEVEN DENTAL CHAIRS.

New York Dental Parlors of this city.
A few months ago they opened up neat
but small, offices at the corner of Morri
son and Fourth streets. Their announce
ments were dignified and very becoming
the most ethical practitioners. Those
who called upon them reported great care
shown their dental Infirmities. The ef
fect of this combination Is best told by
the results. After a few weeks, addi
tional offices were added on the Fourth
street side and as many more chairs put
in. A dentist or two were brought out
from the East, not men of mediocre abil
ity, but specialists in their calling. Busi
ness continued to grow, and the landlord
was Importuned for more room. Last
week he caused a series of offices on the
Morrison-street front to be vacated and
turned them over to the New York Dental
Parlors. Yesterday the alterations neces
sary were completed and three new dental
chairs were Installed, making seven in all,
the largest number of operators, at least
busy operators, In any one office in Port
land. The laboratory has Been emargea

Grand avenue, will be repaired In the
early spring. The street needs repairing
very badly as far as East Eighth street,
but at present there Is no disposition to
make repairs for that distance. It is
proposed to repair with lumber 4x8 Inches,
which is considered better than 4x12 inches
or the large pieces with which the street
was first improved. Planking 4x8 will
contain the best part of the lumber. It
is thought that the only expense to the
repairs will be for the lumber and laying
it There will be no grading, and the
bearings are in good condition. It has
been demonstrated that the use of. large
timbers 5x5 and Gx6 Inches Is a great
waste of material, as nearly half of the
material becomes decayed before It Is
worn out This is shown on the road
way on Grand avenue. Along this street
the large timbers are found to be badly
decayed underneath, while the top por
tion is not much worn.

The need of the American people today
Is not more or better dentists, for our
dentists are the best In the world, and
there are many of them. What we do
need, however, is to be educated in regard
to the Importance of having our teeth and
our children's teeth regularly looked after
and cleaned by competent dentists. In
this manner the teeth may be kept sound
and nrm for 25 years longer than the aver
age under the present system of waiting
until the nerve is exposed before a dentist
The plan of the American Dental Insur
ance Association of Chicago is entirely
successful, for It reduces the expense to
a minimum by a systematic plan whereby
its members have their teeth examined,
cleaned and otherwise oared for twice a
year or oftener, at a cost of about $1 to
$1 25 per year, after the organs of masti
cation are once put in a healthy condition.
The association made a fine selection
when they appointed the PorUand dental
parlors as their Western agents, for this
concern Is up-to-date, and thoroughly re.
A PROSPEROUS FLOUR MILL
The Washington County Mills, of Forest
Grove, doing business under the" firm name
of the Washington Milling Company, Mr.
C. C. Cjaples, manager, have lately opened
an office at No. 11 First street, for the
purpose of handling their .own products,
thus doing away with middlemen.
Their "Washington's Best" is a well
known brand of flour, and considered one
of the very best brands for family use on
the market,. This firm has something new
in their mill In the way of a wheat drier,
and say they dry all the wheat they grind.
By doing this the flour Is drier and livelier
than It otherwise could be. They carry a
stock of flour, mill feed, etc., and are
prepared to fill orders promptly, and
would be pleased to meet all old customers
as well as possible new ones.
