GRAIN SALES ALSO HEAVIER
Export Trade Curtailed by Clos
ing or Canal and Building Actir
Ity Not Marked Decrease Is
Noted in Postal Receipts.
A statistical review of the current
month as compared with October of
last year shows bank clearings. Mer
chants Exchange sales and hog, wheat
and barley receipts on the favorable
aide of the ledger, with slight decreases
shown In postofflce receipts, building
permits, exports and receipts of flour,
oats, cattle and sheep.
For the month Just ending the bank
clearings reached a total of $59,997,497,
as compared with io,715,228 for the cor
responding month last year. '
For the first time since the season
opened in July the sales at the Mer
chants Kxchange show a substantial
increase over the same month of last
year. During the past 30 days the
sales have aggregated 140,000 bushels
of wheat and 800 tons of oats, the total
value being $153,200. Last year 45,000
bushels of wheat were sold in October,
700 tons of oats and 300 tons of mill
feed, the aggregate value being $71,250.
Grain Receipt Heavier.
The grain receipts by carloads for
October were as follows:
. . 1915. 1014.
Wheat L'5f)4 219
Barley 3ri 235
Klour 252
Oat. 140 287
Hay 288 246
During the month 6078 head of cat
tle, 27,787 head of hogs and 9779 head
of sheep were received at the stock
- yards, as contrasted with 6232 head of
cattle, 23,280 head of hogs and 27,245
head of sheep received during October
of last year.
Owing to the unexpected closing of
the Panama Canal there was a slight
falling off in exports during the month
just concluded, but November promises
to be well ahead of the same period
last year.
A total of 397 building permits have
been issued this month, authorizing the
construction of buildings worth $350,
980. Last year during October 426 per
mits were issued calling for a total
expenditure of $508,705. During the
entire year to date 4062 permits, total
ing work costing $4,398,255. have been
issued, as contrasted with 5382 calling
for $6,278,899 last year for the same
period.
I'oatal Receipt Are Less.
Postoffice receipts at Portland for
the month of October show a consider
able falling oft overthe corresponding
month of 1914. The total receipts for
the montn ending today had not been
compiled last night, but Assistant Post,
master Durand estimated that October
receipts would total $96,000. For Octo
- ber last year the receipts amounted
to $112,684.
There was a reason, however, for
October of last year making such a
big total, for the election during the
first week in November of last year
added largely to letters mailed durinir
October. It was, in fact, the biggest
montn tno Portland oince ever knew,
with the exception of December, 1913.

Wide Variety of Treatment At

PETS' PARADE HELD
Pageant of Youth Enjoyed as
Part of Juvenile Exhibit.
CHILDREN PROUD OWNERS
Fully 1000 Visitors Gather at Cen
tral Library to Witness Show In
Afternoon and It Will Be
Open to Public All Week.
Although it was not so long as had
been expected, the pets' parade, held
yesterday at the Central Library as a
feature of the Juvenile Exhibit now in
progress there, waa a pleasing affair
and brought out a number of children
and their most cherished little friends.
Uncertain weather of the morning
kept many children from venturing out
with their pets, but those who did
enjoyed the little pageant and there
were several hundred people assmbled
on the Library steps who watched the
kiddies on parade. .The tots gathered
at 1 o'clock and shortly thereafter
one circuit of the Library block was
made by the children and their pets.
The affair was in cnarge oi jnarry
Blough, principal of Portsmouth School;
H. M. Barr, principal of Buckman
School; D. T. Vantine, principal of Cen
tral School; A. R. Draper, principal of
Shattuck School; C. M. Boyd, principal
of Highland School, and W. A. Pettys,
principal of Peninsula ocnooi.
Two white raoDits in a dox, smiting
suspiciously at lettuce leaves as they
were carried along by two little
children, cute little kittens held by
little girls, the cats showing some
peevishness at the close proximity of a
number of dogs led by their youthful
owners, a riding pony and another
tiny horse drawing a dogcart, these
were the principal actors in the pageant
of youth and its friends.
There were a number of attractive
collie dogs led by their proud owners
and an aristocratic Boston -bull was
in lino. A plan is on foot to organize
pets' parade at a more favorable
season of the year some time in the
future when It is believed there will
be a much larger turnout.
The juvenile exhibit was visited yes
terday by a large number of people, the
afternoon showing about 1000 visitors.
while many more came at night. The
attendance is increasing, as during the
first two days of the show about 1000
people saw the display of childish
ingenuity. The exhibit will remain
open all this week.

Chamber of Commerce tomorrow night.
has been postponed.
J. N. Teal, counsel for the bureau of
transportation of the Chamber, who
was scheduled to give the presentation
of the subject, has been called "out of
the city unexpectedly and informed the
Chamber last night that he would not
be able to be present on the date set.
The arrangements will be suspended
until he returns, after which a new
date for the meeting will be announced.
It is regarded of especial importance
that an attendance of the full mem
bership shall be present at the time
when the meeting is held, since there
exists some division of opinion of the
subject among the members. Mr. Teal
the only available speaker who has
gone - into the matter thoroughly . in
every detail and prepared a presenta
tion of the case in form for the mem
bers of the Chamber.
The gathering at which he is to ap

hearings in which advocates of all
sides of the question will be asked to
present their positions for the Cham

EXHIBIT CLOSES TONIGHT
Lillian Tingle Comments on Differ
ent Temperamental Views Ex
pressed and Good Handling
of Several Topics.
BY LILIAN TINGLE.
Wide variety In the treatment of
problems of color, space relations and
light la characteristic of the exhibit of
works by Pacific Coast artists, open to
the public today, for the last time, at
the Museum of Art.
This variety of treatment is depend
ent upon the individual temperament
of the artist, and ranges from the
broad "modern" handling inexactly
described by some observers as "post
impressionistic" shown in the works
or jarj Walters, Floyd Wilson and
Henrietta Shore to the reserved tech
mque and Quiet color of Bldiwv Roll
Perhaps the most individual temoera.
ment Is seen in the Daintinsrs of Clara
j. Biepnens. wnich. in color and desls-n
show a truly artistic enjoyment of
many aspects or life and of nature.
The variety displayed in the exhibit
as a whole is typified in the work of
H. F. Wentz. The delicate radiance of
"jariy Moon Neah-Kah-Nle." the work
a-day realism of "The Ferry Slip," and
the gay spontaniety of "The Laughing
Boy." show a quick responsiveness,
both of brush and of spirit, to vividly
felt impressions.
Three artists exhibiting for the first
time are Lesley Smith. Ruth Flsken
and Dorothy Gilbert, all of whom have
worked In the classes of the Portland
Art School.
Edna Breyman In "Holiday After
noon" and "Veranda, California" has
succeeded in giving a vivid effect of
California sunshine. In striking con
trast are the leep-toned and sympa
thetic paintings "Jeanne" and "Hose
Marie" by Althea Chase.
Agnes Jamison has a notably quiet
and complete "Landscape," and Mary
Edith Uregory shows a group of care
fully drawn life studies.
MacDonald Mayer's etchings, the
sculpture of Paula Qrum, and Ksther
Hult, water-colors by J. M. Crook, Co
lista M. Cowling. Mary Hillyer, J. W.
Lawlor and Carl A. Walters, are also
included in a collection ranking high
in the excellent series of exhibits ar
ranged by the Museum of Art.
E. H. HOLT SUED BY WIFE
Wife of Piano Man Charges Cruelty
In Divorce Action.
Viola N. Holt has started In Circuit
Court suit for a divorce from E. H.
Holt, piano man, on grounds of cruelty.
They were married at St, Charles, Mo
November 26, 1903. and have one child,
a boy of 11. Mrs. Holt alleges that
her husband frequently threatened to
end both their lives and on two oc
casions evidently started to carry out
his threats, once trying to run their
automobile into a telephone pole and
at another time maltreating her in
their home.
He is declared to have said that her
parents would be sent to the - poor
farm and that her mother was insane
and should be in the asylum. Mrs.
Holt wants 1 100 a month alimony, de
claring that her husband is making
easily fzOO to fooo a montn.
nobody has any money ; you'll not do very much
jewelry business down in Foruanai
But we decided to try.
And you should have seen the crowd that
came to buy! In twp minutes after the doors
opened, the store was jammed. And
We had to lock the doors again!
The Chief of Police very courteously sent a
uniformed officer down and a couple of plain
clothes menfor safety sake.
And everybody kept good natured.
And you should have seen folks buy!
THIS is being written at 5 o'clock, for
the newsDaDer men insist they'll not
print a line if it's not ready on the dot.
Already we have broken all records.
And we have still five hours to go.
So you can readily believe the buying has
been going on the "high gear."
We should like to make it very clear that
Aronson's sale is not for a day. But for the
entire Holiday Season.
So if those who couldn't get in today will come
Monday (and hundreds decided to do this very
wise thing) we shall be obliged and everybody
will be better pleased, for as one portly gentle
man expressed it :
"This is no place for a fat man!"
OF COURSE, no single advertisement
can possibly contain all the items in
the sale.
So I've just picked up the following from my
notebook ; some are in the windows and some in
the store :
A $10.00 Jewel Case (silver-plated) is $6.75; a
$7.00 Copper Tobacco Jar is $2.50; a $1.50 Ash
Tray is 75c; a $10.00 Smoker's Set is $3.75; a
$5.00 Brass Set is $1.50.
Valdemar Watch Chains, gold filled, are $3.73
instead of $5.00. A $7.50 Toilet Set, silver
plated, is $3.75.
A trayful of Gold-Filled Bracelets are $2.75
each instead of $5.00 and $6.50. Solid Gold Cuff
Buttons are $1.75 instead of $3.50. Gold-Filled
Watch Fobs are $2.65; they were $3.50. Solid
Gold Scarf Pins are $3.35 instead of $5.00.
1 COULD fill pages of this newspaper
with descriptions of Diamonds.
But alas! You. can't put the glory of a Dia
mond into a newspaper ad.
There's a $400.00 Diamond La Valliere for
$300.00. A $1000.00 Solitaire Ring for $675.00.
A Diamond Bracelet that was $175.00 is $131.25
and so on.
Solid Gold La Vallieres in artistic designs
each one set with semi-precious stones can be
bought for $4.85 instead of $7.50 to $10.00.
A trayful of Solid Gold Brooches, that were
$5.00 each, are marked $2.50. Solid gold, mind
you!
IN THE Cut Glass Room everything is
half price $10.00 Bowls are $5.00;
$12.50 Decanters are $6.25; $5.00 Sugar Bowl
and Creamer are $2.50; a $16 Pitcher is $8.50;
an original design is found in this Square Sugar
Bowl and Creamer, now $4.25 instead of $8.50
beautiful.
ROGERS' "1847" SILVERWARE is
selling to "beat the band."
Spoons are 95c instead of $1.75; Desserts are
$1.70 instead of $3.25; Knives are $2.75 instead
of $4.00; Forks are the same price.
HOWARD WATCHES are also re
duced. The prices are fixed by the
manufacturers and plainly printed on each box.
The $40.00 Howard Watches are now $29.50;
the $75.00 Howards are $59.50, and the $95.00
Howards are $79.50.
Elgin and Waltham Watches that were $12.00
and $15.00 are selling for $7.35.
Over a score of Ladies' Watches, up to $18.00,
are marked $9.85.
ALL the fine Stationery is half price.
It's "HURD'S," too none finer.
The Cut Glass, as stated, is also half price.
So are all the Umbrellas. All the Clocks are
reduced a fourth, a third; some that have been
here too long are cut to one-half.
"Gorham" Solid Silver is reduced a fourth.
All the Solid Silver Flatware is reduced a fifth.
And with the exception of a few contract goods,
everything in the store is marked down. Some
things only a little; some things a good deal.
BUT nobody makes any effort to create
the impression that the reductions
are bigger than they really are.
Neither in the newspapers nor in the store.
You can depend on that much!
IF YOU can arrange to come tomorrow
early we shall appreciate it.
For the nearer we get to Xmas the bigger the
crowds are sure to get.
And any selections you make now will be held
for later delivery if you desire. A small deposit
will "seal the bargain."
Doors open Monday at 9 o'clock.
P. S.
FOR the splendid response today every
body joins with the writer in a happy,
though tired and hungry, "Thank You."
