George E. Ames to Arange Cyclor-1
amic Exhibit Showing Actual j
. Workings of Great Placer
-,-To Exhibit Gold Dust.
It Would take time and money, to say
nothing of the perils attending change of I
climate, to 50 to Alaska and the Klondike
to -witness a placer mine in actual opera
tion, and It would need a magician's
wand to bring such a placer mine from
the Frozen North and stick It in the
ground within the city limits of Portland.
But such an every-day magician is George
E. Ames, who has Just obtained at large
expense a concession from the Lewis and
Clark Corporation granting him the right
to erect and exhibit a large-sizo placer
mine at the Exposition. Mr. Ames home
is at Dawson City. Yukon Territory, and
for the past six years he has personally
operated some of the largest mining prop
erties In Alaska and the Klondike.
Mr. Ames exhibit will be In the nature
of a cyclorama, illustrated by means of
paintings, actual mining machinery and
gold dust. His concession measures 1130
by 100 feet, and Is 50 feet high, on one of
the best locations found on the" Exposition
grounds. In buildings and paintings be
will spend 512,000, and he will exhibit gold
dust valued at 510,000, and specimens and
nuggets valued at $5000. His exhibit, will
represent a money value of about 530,000.
and will be one of the great attractions of
the Exposition. Pumping machinery will
be installed to produce 200Q gallons of
water per minute, for the creek and sluic
ing plant, and along the creek will be a
rocker which will clean up 510,000 worth
of gold dust an hour. "Water managed by
the pumping plant can also be Instantly
turned on for Are protection. The exhibit
will be so arranged in cycloramic effect
that the visitor on first going upstairs
will find himself In a valley with real gold
on all sides apparently being washed out
of Portland gravel. A lecturer will be
engaged to give descriptions of the prin
ciples of placer mining, and an old miner
a regular forty-niner will operate the
rocker on the creek. Pamphlets will be
ready describing the different American
and BrftlsTi-Canadlan mining laws, and
also exploiting Alaska.
Contracts will be let for the buildings,
which will be of Umber, Wednesday.
COMMISSIONER STILL. HERE.
Tells What Seattle and King's County
Will Do. at the Fair.
"Will A. Steel, executive commissioner
for Seattle and Kings County, Washing
ton, to the Lewis and Clark Exposition,
is in Portland for the purpose of confer
ring with the officials of the Centennial
upon the Installation of exhibits in tne
various buildings under their Jurisdiction.
He says that the people of the State or
Washington are taking great interest in
the Exposition and that many sections
of the state consider that It will be of
much benefit to them as to Portland and
the State of Oregon.
While he State of Washington appro
priated 575,000 for an exhibit, the vari
ous counties have made separate appro
priations that will equal that amount.
The Washington building will be one of
the handsomest upon the grounds and,
according to the contract, which has Just
been let, will cost about 530,000. The con
tractor has given a bond to complete the
building by May 15, irrespective of strikes
or conditions of the weather, and it is
therefore expected that all the displays
will be ready for Inspection before the
date of the opening of the Exposition.
"Various organizations in all sections
of the state are arranging special excur
sions to the Fair," said Commissioner
Steel, "and it has been decided that the
19 largest cities of Washington be as-
Flgned a special week during which the
residents of each particular section will
be expected to visit the Exposition."
Mr. Steel says that the counties of
Washington that have made a special ap
propriation are already vying with one
another to have the best display, and
ho predicts several novel and attractive
features In the various sections of the

The appropriation for a Minnesota build'

Centennial has been increased from 520,000
to 525,000. The measure passed the House
today and is certain to pass the Senate,
where it goes at once. Of the appropri

mum for salaries, the balance to go to a
building and exhibit.
Exposition Offers Gam Trophy.
President H. W. Goode has decided to
offer a Lewis and Clark trophy for com
petition at the coming Pacific Coast fish
and game exhibition at San Francisco.
The trophy will go to the best sports
men's club exhibit.. Many well-known
sportsmen will be present on that occa

lively. Among those who were invited Is
Homer Davenport, but Mr. Davenport de
clined to show his famed collection of
pheasants and birds at the exhibition, an

the first time in the Western country at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition.

industries of the cltjr, being the largest

Mr. Cate kept his eye on the future, tho
efforts of knockers to discourage him not

Outside Capitalists Coming.
These few .sales, picked from the manv
nunoreas wnacn nave oeen made, bava
shown the trend of tho market and have
proved it to be good. Otb,er things point
the samo way. Lately there have been a
numbervof capitalists from out of town
looking for investments, a very new thing
in oruana. this is on the whole the
most hopefufslgn that the real estate
market has seen for a long time. For
several years prominent real estate
brokers have been attempting to secure
outside capital for investment here, but
always found It too busy elsewhere. Now
it is beginning to come, and there will
probably be before long several large
sales made, possibly ono or two as large
as tho transfer pf the Dekum property
to cnaries sweeny, of Spokane.
The coming of Sweeny has done a great
aeai in itself towards attracting capital
from other cities. Other men in SDOkane.
and within the last week two from San
Francisco, have been hero looking over
tne prospects and have expressed them
selves pleased with several large offers
(made them. The sale of big down-town
holdings for prices running upwards of
naif a million would be calculated . to
bra co the realty market more tha any.
Few Houses for Rent.
But there is a much stronger reason for
the price of real estate soaring in Port
land. There is hardly a piece of property
in the city which is not drawing a high
Interest at its present valuation. The
houses on the West Side whleh can hn
rented at th'e present day can be counted
on the fingers of one hand. Rooms are
even now very scarce. Stores are in
demand. Everybody who has an unlm
proved piece of property Is figuring how
he can raise the money to build upon It.
There are thousands of houses being built
In town and the building is confined to
no particular locality. It Is going on
everywhere. The city Is growing1 at
rapid rate, and rents being much higher
than formerly, investment In real estate
Is the more valuable.
Industries are also Increasing. Last
week the Weyerhaeuser Lumber Com
pany purchased the William Gatton tract
below St. Johns for $40,000. on which to
oulld a sawmill, wnicn, it Is understood,
will be the largest on the Pacific Coast.
The Weyerhaeuser holdings of timber In
Washington are the largest in this part
of the country and the mill will add con
siderably to the great -output of lumber
shipped from this port. The building of
this mill will mean a village of 500 peopl

Understand first that we have two en

certain set of nerves nerves which obey
our mental commands. That is why the
arm can be raised, or the mouth opened,
or the eye shut, at the slightest desire.
That is why your fingers can delicately
pick up a pin one moment, and hold a
heavy hammer the next.
But these are not the nerves we are to
It is the inside nerves that manage and
govern and actuate the heart and the
stomach, the kidneys and the liver and
all of the vital functions. Ton cannot

It Is on these Inside nerves that life

nerves perform their proper duties, we are
well and strong. When they fall, we
know It by tho Inevitable symptoms

Thus, we find that most forms of Ill

real trouble Inside nerve trouble.

outward signs of inward trouble.
There are different centers and branches
of this inside nerve system (frequently
called the Sympathetic Nervous System).
.But each branch is so closely connected
with the others that breakdown anywhere
usually means a breakdown everywhere.
This explains why stomach trouble de
