Miss Billie Burke's Role in "Jerry That Is Coming to Heilig, Found

SOJIK day, maybe, Miss Billic Burke's
name may be found in the dic
tionary of tho Kngiish language.
It really ought to be there now, for
Miss Burke has added three words a
noun, a verb and an adjective to the
vocabulary of people who write about
the theater. They are expressive words,
There is the noun. A "blllieburke" is
a girl, on tho stage or off, who has
reddish hair and gets herself up to
look as much like the actress as na
ture will let her.
Then the verb. To "blllieburke" is
to display the cute little mannerisms
and the kittenish ways that the actress
has made familiar to theater-goers. A
great many other actresses try to "bll
lieburke" and a few of them succeed
Then the adjective. A "billieburkish"
part is one that the average theater
goer will recognize at once as being
exactly suited to Miss Burke one that
she would "simply eat tip," as the slang
user would put it. They say that
"Jerry," the role in which Miss Burke
appears in the play of that same name
in. which, she will be seen at the Heilig
Theater, June 3, 4 and 5, is a "billie
burkish'" part in the superlative.

MANY BOOKLETS IN PRINT
Points of Interest Throughout Ore
gon Attractively Pictured to En
courage Tourists to Visit
Xorth. Pacific Country.
Railroads radiating out of Portland
are displaying more than their usual
amount of enterprise this year in pre
paring folders, booklets and other ad
vertising matter descriptive of Port
land and its environs, and offering in
ducements to travelers to visit this lo
cality. On account Of the expositions in Cali
fornia it is expected that more than
the usual number of travelers will come
to the Coast this year.
The Southern Pacific Company has
been particularly active in this direc
tion. It has issued several booklets
already, and has others in course of
preparation. One of the Southern Pa
cific publications is devoted to Oregon
exclusively. It consists of 48 pages of
illustrated reading matter and is de
scriptive of the scenic charm and the
industrial advantages of tLe western
part of the state. The covers are
printed on a deep blue background. On
one side an alert fisnerman is just
about to land an extra-size trout in his
net and on the other, side a typical
Summer girl is ready to take a plunge
into the surf.
Shasta Route Pictured.
" High Points on the Four Great
Highways to California" is tho title of
another booklet being circulated by the
Southern Pacific. These four "high
ways" are the four routes by which
the Southern Pacific enters California.
One Is tho Shasta route and, in re
ferring to it, the booklet describes the
scenery of Western Oregon, and photo

which the Southern Pacific passes is
Two of Oregon's popular beach re

In addition to these more pretentious

on how to Ee"t there.

It seems a shame to cut down a business at this time to the extent that is necessary, but I have left
nothing undone and cannot help myself.
The owners of the preferred stocK of my company want their money. 1 have been trying to place
it elsewhere, but no one seems willing' to maKe an investment nowadays. I cannot borrow the money
now, so I must taKe it out of my business.
By selling out a large portion of my stocK on hand and doing it cuicHly I Know I can maKe it. I
Know that a big sacrifice is necessary to induce quicK and extensive piano buying' now, but 1 am willing'
to maKe that sacrifice. I'll maKe extraordinary concessions for cash less than cost and for anyone
nuying on time will charge only a very little extra.
I have better pianos, grade for grade, than any house in the city because I personally select my
stocK. Let no one say that such and such an instrument is better or more valuable than anything In
my house. It is not true.
I have Sohmers and Behning- grands and uprights and player pianos. No concern in America
maKes anything finer. I will taKe $143 for some of my nicest brand new pianos. This is $10 less than
the cash cost at the factory. .
For $155 I will sell them on time, say $15 cash and $7 a month.
I will sell very fine brand new player pianos for $230; this is $20 less than they cost at the factory;
and for $255 I will sell on payments of $35 down and $11 a month; twenty months to pay for a piano
or a player piano.
This is a bona fide help-me-quicK offer.-
I have some used pianos, too, and good ones. Will taKe $65 for a Steinway piano, $55 for a Fischer,
$70 for a good old W. W. Kimball, and a $500 genuine ChicKering is$180.
Everything else, including baby grands, at same rate of reduction.
My offer is genuine; no one can say these figures are high. There are plenty of families who need
pianos; there are plenty of people with money who can pay me the cash; but all can buy now became
I'll sell on easiest payments. "
If I don't act quicKly I can't continue business. Come at once, or telephone or let me send you cat
alogues. I haven't any agents or traveling men. You are dealing' with the head of the Hoiisp. th.
who has built this business up to its present success and wants to remain identified with Portland
and Oregon and the music trade for all time to come. My guarantee is as good as anybody's. It is issuorf
by the factories and countersigned by me. We have hundreds upon hundreds of satisfied customers and,
even though we don't maKe a dollar of profit in this emergency, we are going to taKe just as good care
of the interests of buyers now as we have in the past.

In response to inquiries regarding
the relative merits of different pave

received letters yesterday from eight
men of Hood River County; protest
ing against use of concrete pavement
on the Columbia River Highway, and
a copy of a letter written by John
Frye, County Commissioner of Clatsop
County, to a Spokane man, citing his
county's experience with concrete.
"We have had some experience with
concrete pavements of . tho hassam
type," say the Hood River men, three
of whom are farmers, and three in the
livery and drayage business. "How
ever, we do not favor it for use on
the Columbia River Highway for the
following reasons: First, it Is very In
jurious to hors.es' feet; second, it is
very noisy and slippery when dry, and
even when wet it is very poor footing

Commissioner Frye says. In part:
"The state built about four miles of
concrete road in this county last year
and it has proved a failure; also we
built a concrete .street on one side of
county property in Astoria, and that
is a failure. We built two miles of
warrenito road last year, and we con
sider it a fine road and a perfect suc
cess, so you can see from our experi
ence that we are strong on warrenito.
I consider warrenito the best pavement
you can get for county roads."
Final Surveys Completed, for Route
That Will Accommodate Only
Foot Travelers for Time.
Work on the Larch Mountain trail
will begin tomorrow, with a large force
of men under the immediate direction
of R. S. Shelley, of the United States
Final surveys have been completed in
accordance with the original plans
suggested by Samuel C. Lancaster, ex
engineer of tho Multnomah County
highway department. Tho whole course
has been laid out through the forests
from the Columbia River Highway , to
the mountain summit. It will bo ap
proximately six and a half miles in
length and will have a maximum grade
of 15 per cent. Temporarily it will be
wide enough to accommodate foot trav
elers comfortably, but it is intended
eventually to mako it six feet wide so
that burros, ponies and such pack ani
mals may bo taken over the trail.
Tho Government has appropriated
$1000 to prosecute the work and 300
for the erection of an observation
tower and shelter station at the sum
mit. The rest of the money needed for the
enterprise is being procured through
the efforts of the Progressive Business
Men's Club, which originated the plan
or ouilding the trail, after Mr. Lancas
ter had suggested tho idea. A commit
