Thousands Aid in Plans That
Are to Make Third Rose
Festival Big Success.
Arrangements Will Go Forward With
Rash During Fortnight Before
Carnival Begins. Fetes of
Past Are to Be F.clipsed.
The wonderful pageantry of old Rome,
the brilliance of a ml-careme parade at
Florence, an Introduction to feudal and
pre-feudal days all this, combined with
the perfume and beauty of hundreds of
thousands of the flower of Portland and
Oregon the lovely rose will Introduce to
many thousand wondering visitors just
what abilities Portland has in preparing a
Roue Festival.
There have been Rose Festivals In pre
vious years. To be precise, there have
been three of them. The plans for the
days of June 6-11 have reached comple
tion so nearly It has becpme obvious to
all studying them that with the assistance
of the humble rose, the great rose, the red
rose, the white rose and a score of oth
ers Portland's fiesta will be on a scale
of magnificence deserving a place in the
history of new world splendors.
Business Men Help.
More than in previous years, the busi
ness men will be seen worshipping at the
shrine of beauty and roses, a worship
they will attest to by the whole-hearted
scheme of decoration they now have un
der way. From every floor of her sky
scrapers it Is planned that Portland shall
proclaim to the visiting throngs the grace
and beauty of her patron flower.
The women of Portland have done their
part. To them have been the care and at
tention required by the delicate flowers.
Theirs has been an unheralded and un
sung duty. It has been nobly done.
The railroads have spread broadcast the
announcements of Portland's great an
nual festival. In the East, in the West,
In the South and in the North the glad,
gay carnival has been heralded. The Har-rim-an
lines have issued special rose fold
ers; the Northern Pacific and Hill' lines
have emblazoned the festival on station
ery and continued allusions to It in the
varied literature Issued by the publicity
bureaus. All roads have granted reduced
transcontinental rates.
The Festival management has done Its
part. The Festival committee has pub
lished all kinds of matter that has
brought the Festival before the public.
Even abroad the Portland fete has been
beard of. It has arranged for the various
kinds of entries in the numerous proces
sions and pageants that' will mark the
coming and the passing of the Rose Fes
tival. Rose Society is Busy.
The Portland Rose Society, too, has
done Its part. To the Rose Society, its
officers and supporters has fallen the task
of arousing" enthusiasm In growing th
flower that is to be the actual embodi
ment of what would be engraved on the
city coat-of-arms, were Portland to have
such a thing.
The part of the Peninsula residents has
been partly accomplished. They have
raised, enthusiasm such as has never been
equaled in the city. In hundreds of gar
dens are now growing the rosea that later
will be cast broadcast over the city streets
by the Peninsula's fairest residents.
Patriotic residents have but li days
in which to prepare for the great, big,
good time. They have U days to write
and urge their friends to come and see
Portland. They have 14 days in which
to decorate. They have 14 days to pre
pare the hundreds of roses they Intend
to donate for the purpose of decorations.
They have 14 days to decide whether they
are going to make the Rose Festival
something that will enter into the lives
of them all and make them prouder-of
their city. No resident of Portland
doubts for a moment that In those 11
days, they will make the residents of
other cities envy them their city and
other cities envy them their citizenship)
Festival Benefits City.
It is because of its effect on the growth
or the city that Portland people will do
all in their power to push the Rose Fes
tival. A few disagree with it. " They
hold it obstructs the passage of business,
but the movement of a city from the rear
to the foremost ranks must necessarily
be attended with much that all-are not
in entire agreement with. Yet the fact
that all are interesed in seeing their
queen of cities take the rank that is
due to her will be the dominant factor in
the Rose Festival.
Portland people owe a great deal to
Portland the city. They now have the
opportunity to express to the city their
gratitude for - what she has done for
them. Is there any who would wish to
' be a detriment? It would seem not. Any
there would be will have to face the
. execration of a whole community.
A whole week will be taken up with
the rejoicings. - Monday, June 6. is the
Introductory day. It Is not only overly
devoted to public entertaining, because
It is the day most of the visitors will ar
rive, and to permit them to settle down
before the city becomes thronged in
every street, is the purpose of postpon-
lng the full commencement of the fes
Tuesday Day of Activity.
Tuesday, the Festival gets Into full
swing. On that day the rose will begin
to take her own in the scheme of the
city's Festival programme. Scattered in
hundreds of thousands along the streets.
the prodigality of Portland with her
roses will make the city and the day
an ever-present memory among . those
who go back to districts where a single
rose is an expensive luxury. The even
lng will be taken up with a pageant that
will convey, metaphorically, the growth
of Portland from a clearing in the woods
where two men quarreled over the name
of the city they dreamed would stand
on the Willamette should be called, to
the Rose City, Portland, the arbiter of
the destinies of the Northwest.
With the Society Circus and the au
tomobile parade, Wednesday, Portland
will have an opportunity to show her
capabilities in . the way of acquiring
wealth for her residents, for the auto
mobile has now become one of the stand
ards by which a city's position in the
matter of wealth is gauged.
The great climax Is Thursday, When
the entire day is one long round of ex
Vitement and spectacular productions.
On this day there is the horse and ve
hicle parade, endinpr with a battle of
, roses that cannot fail to amaze. Port
land is the one town in the world where
roses can be used in a battle of this
nature. Battles of flowers are not new.
but It is a rare thing to find roses used
with prodigality, and a battle of roses
cannot be accomplished with less than
hundreds of thousands of expensive
blooms, a use that will seem almost crim-

The Period When the Nervous Activity
Is at Ita Greatest.
'.'Against the practice of giving tea
and coffee to children, we cannot speak
too strongly. Childhood is the period
when the nervous activity is at its
greatest. The brain is ever busy re
ceiving new impressions. Reflex ac
tion, co-ordination of muscles, and the
special senses are all under a special
course of training.
"The nervous system is pushed to its
utmost capacity, and long is the list of
victims that follow its over-stimula
tion. In these little people nothing but
harm can come from the use of such
cerebral stimulants as tea or coffee.
Bad, then, as this practice is, let us as
physicians be aggressive in its prohibi
tion. "Do not be satisfied by answering
'No when asked as to their use, but
let us teach the families with whom
we come In contact that such practice
is evil. V'e speak emphatically, be
cause not only ampns; the poor and un
educated, but among : the rich, who
should know better, this practice is
marvelously prevalent." The Home
Doctor. ' ... ....
Children like a warm beverage for
breakfast, and it is well for them to
have it if the drink is a food and not
a drug-.
Postum is made to supply a . rich

It to contain about fourteen per cent,

elements, which go to nourish and sus
iain the delicate nerve centers through

energy proceeds.
The success of child or adult depends
larcrely upon proper sustenance for the

The Wiley B. Allen Co., 304 Oak Street, City.
. Gentlemen : I wish to express to you once more my heartfelt
thanks for your kindness to me in contributing the use of a won
derful Mason & Hamlin Piano. I have never been so completely
satisfied with any other piano. They are remarkable in all the
essential qualities which go to make up an artistic instrument of
the very first quality. .
The action assists the player in a truly wonderful way.
Whether in a crashing blow, or in repetition, staccato, or in tha
singing' of a melody, the action sensitively responds at all times.
As. for the tone, it is always beautiful, full, with a remarkable
clarity and musical quality, and its carrying or singing capacity
is phenomenal. - (Signed) ESSIE M. BLOCK.
The leadership of Mason & Hamlin Pianos, and the remark
able enthusiasm which they evoke, are due to the extraordinary
beauty of tone and their unapproachable durability, made pos
sible by the Mason & Hamlin system of construction.
To appreciate the reasons for their commanding position
one should hear the pianos themselves and understand their
exclusive' features of construction and the scientific way in
which they are made.
A demonstration will be cheerfully given at
our warerooms. Whether an intending pur
chaser or not, you are cordially invited to call.
Catalogues mailed on application. Old pianos taken in exchange.
