Interest in the Portland Fair has been
given a sudden Impetus. While' the work
of collecting the exhibits for the St. Louis
fair goes on, a second movement is al
ready on foot to have the entire Califor

proposal has met with the hearty Indorse
ment of those most intimately concerned.
In addition to the St. Louis display Cali

It is planned to make the most complete
exhibition of fruits and wines that has
ever been attempted here. While no direct
work has been begun to this end the Idea
has been readily eelzed upon by the large
commercial bodies which generally con

pointed out that a display on an elabo

though costly, prove economical in the

The most Important recent production
frpm local sculptors is tho sketch pre
sented by Robert I. Aitken for tho pro
posed monument to Bret Harte to be
erected by the Bohemian Club and placed
in one of the public parks in San Fran
cisco. The sketch made by Mr. Aitken is
on exhibition at the Bohemian Club. It
is a striking piece of work, both artis
tically and emblematically. Its Idea Is
based on that portion of Bret Harte's
"Tennessee's Pardner" which describes
the burial of Tennessee. The monument
proposed Is the life-sized figure of an old
miner, in sitting pesture, his shovel be
tween his knees, and his face burled in
his hand. The figure of the old miner Is
tho acme of hopeless dejection. The fig
ure is seated upon a mound of loqse earth
and a pine bough trails down over the
base. Mr. Aitken Is a native of San Fran
cisco, and although in tho first rank of
local sculptors and teachers, has attained
only 25 years of age. He was formerly a
student of Douglas Tllden, and although
often urged has never studied abroad.
A recent addition to the colony of local
sculptors is Miss Nanette McGlashan,
who has opened a studio on Ellis street.
She has been described by one admirer
as "a busy little mountain girl, deep in
her clay from morning till night and fair
ly bubbling over with the enthusiasm of
her work. In manner," continues the ad
mirer, "she is delightfully ingenue, with
the odbr of pines in her talk and the color
of mountain streams In her wide-open
blue eyes. And she Is terribly but pleas
antly in earnest about her work, her alms
and what she calls her lack of attain
ment." Miss McGlashan has come down
to the big city from the Sierras, where
her Inborn talent h&sXor years been strug
gling for opportunities for fuller expres
sion. Tho painters-Qf San Francisco, with the
sculptors, have after many attempts
formed a salon, which will be held an
nally hereafter. The first one opened this
week in the maple room of the Palace
Hotel. The first day was given over to
patrons, and those Invited by card, but
for tho rest of the week the display has
been open to the public without charere.

and pastel are on exhibition. Some of the

The coming of winter, with its icy winds, damp, foggy weather, and sudden changes
in temperature, will set the old rheumatic joints to aching and the muscles to throbbing and
twitching with such pains as only Rheumatism can inflict. Chronic sufferers need no better
weather signals to warn them or approaching storms than their aching bones and muscles.
They know from experience how the damp, easterly winds and night air increase their
misery and rob them of restful sleep. IjLheumatism is always worse in winter. Cold and
dampness are exciting causes ; they affect the circulation, stop perspiration, and the poi
sonous acids in the blood, no longer able to escape through the pores, settle upon the
nerves and tender linings of the joints and muscles, causing inflammation and swelling
and such terrible piercing pains that no wonder the
nerves are shattered, the health undermined, and the ol Columbus, Ohio. May 10 loos.

you may scatter or relieve for a time by liniments or
other outside applications, but they gather in some
other part of the body, shifting from one set of muscles
to another, and from joint to joint, and frequently strike the delicate machinery of the heart
or some other vital spot. Rheumatism is never permanently cured till the- blood has been
purified and the sluggish system aroused to better action ; and this is exactly what S. S. S.
does. It thoroughly cleanses the blood and renovates the system by neutralizing the acids
and expelling from the system all acrid matter. S. S. S.

quickest way to get rid of Rheumatism is to restore the blood to a normal, healthy state.
S. S. S. is composed of both purifying and tonic properties, just what is required in every
case of Rheumatism. It contains no Potash, Alkali or other mineral ingredient, but is
guaranteed entirely vegetable. .

Discoverer of Process to Harden Steel
Denies it Is Not Original.
PORTLAND, Nov. 14. (To the Editor.)
The Oregonian of November 6 speaks of
tho possibility of Z. T. Clark, of Port
land, receiving ?1CO,000 for his patent pro
cess for hardening and toughening steel
and iron. In the notice Mr. Clark is per
mitted indirectly to reflect upon my honor
and make unfounded statements respect
ing a steel-tempering process which I dis
covered. These statements, in a measure,
affect my reputation and the commer
cial value of my process, and I, there
fore, wish to bo heard in defense.
Recently In Portland I demonstrated to
many mechanics, scientists and capital
ists the value of my process. Doubtless,
referring to this demonstration, Mr. Clark
Is quoted as saying in effect that the proc-
ess for hardening Iron shown in Portland
some time ago is simply his process; that
In some way the men concerned obtained
his solution and used It as their own. "No
one else," said Mr. Clark, "can possibly
combine the chemicals so as to produce
the hardening solution. I have no fear of
that, although it may have been tried."
In answer to these assertions I wish to
say that Mr. Clark has no means of know
ing the Ingredients entering Into the com
position of my tempering solution, nor the
proportions thereof, as they have not
been made public. He therefore cannot
stato with any degree of certainty that I
used his process. Nevertheless, he does
so state, and in the sentence following
says that "No one else can possibly com
bine the chemicals so as to produce the
hardening solution." The truth is that I
am familiar with Mr. Clark's process, my
knowledgo of it having been obtained
from a copy of his patent, secured for tho
purpose of determining to a certainty
whether or not my process infringed upon
his. I thereby ascertained that the pro
cesses are wholly dissimilar. Further, my
knowledgo of tempering materials af-

or foot. In fact. I had one. of tho sever
est cases of Rheumatism I ever heard oft I
was getting discouraged, you may bo sure,
when I began S. S. S., but as I saw it was
doing ine good I continued it, and to-day I
am a sound and well man, and have never
had a return of he disoase. It relieved tho
swelling and inflammation, purified my blood
and oured me of this severe case of Inflam-

cure for Rheumatism.

fords me an understanding of just what
his process will do.
Mr. Clark claims' that his alleged dis
covers' will harden and toughen both steel
and Iron. With my process I do not pro
fess to treat Iron for any purpose. It Is
effective only through the medium of tho
carbon In steel. If I wish to case-harden
iron, which is simply what Mr. Clark's
method does to iron, I make use of a
method entirely different from either my
tempering process or Mr. Clark's patent
for accompllshlnsr It, and It Is equal ir
not superior to the latter. The occasion,
however, does not call for a criticism of
Mr. Clark's work, nor particularly of a
comparison of the two processess in ques
tion, only to show that my process of
tempering steel not Iron Is not his proc
ess of "hardening and toughening steel
and Iron." Should he sell his "discovery,"
either on its merits or otherwise, it ia
wholly the business of himself and tho
purchasers, but I object to hlsrepresenta
tlons that my discovery Is similar to his.
I object to his attempt to boom his proc
ess on the demonstrated merits of mine.
Since, as Mr. Clark states alternately
with a contradiction of the same, I can
not secure the real secret of his method,
and since It Is unreasonable to supposo
that I "could steal or buy a sufficient
amount of the solution manufactured by
him to make a lengthy series of demon
strations, as I hai'e done. It is evident
that my solution is different from his. I
am. satisfied with the results of my proc
ess, and I should be happy to know that
Mr. Clark is in a similar frame of mind
as regards the results of his. In tho lat
ter event he would perhaps refrain from
an attempt to connect my steel-tempering
discovery with his case-hardening process.
As an evidence of mv (rood faith In what
I I say, I hereby challenge Mr. Clark, as
I have frequently done heretofore, to
make a public joint demonstration of our
processes as applied to steel, the demon
stration to occur at Portland at any tlmo
convenient to Mr. Clark, and to allow
competent experts upon whom the public,
can rely to render a decision as to tho
merits of the processes, and as to wheth
er the process I uso Is similar to his or
an Imitation thereof. Further details can
be arranged if Mr. Clark is disposed to
accept this proposition.
