The prospect of Portland being- put
permanently on the United State air
service map and of it being a regular
thing to hear the hum of aircraft mo
tors and witness the. antics of fliers
over Portland business blocks has been
brought very much nearer as the result
of tha receipt of a letter from Colonel
Stilton F. Davis of the air service, war
department at Washington, in reply to
Ilose. festival reqursts for a big air
fleet to visit TortUnd at the time of the
Rose Festival.
"By June." says Colonel Davis,
plane undoubtedly will visit your city.
providing you can provide a safe land
ing place for fliers."
That everything possible will be done
by Colonel Uavis to send a fleet to do
ftunta over Portland during the festival
is made certain by the expression of
liia deep personal Interest in Portland
and Oregon, lie was appointed from
this state and attended and enjoyed the

Rare Values in
Selected Pieces of Furniture
Let Us Explain
why this is no ordinary sale of Wallpaper, but one that-will afford you a most unusual
opportunity to decorate the walls of your home in rarely artistic fashion.
Every piece of wallpaper of real merit has a meaning; that is, it is copied from some
kind of wall fabric, both in texture and design. It may be European Wall Damasks, Bro
cade, Tapestry, Prints (Linen, Chintz, Cretonne) or Plain Effects and Stripes in many,
different textures.
Our domestic manufacturers for many years have turned out large quantities of wall
papers that, while they may satisfy the ordinary commercial taste, do . not mean any
thing to the true decorator or to the homemaker who would have her home express real
beauty. ' , "
We have on hand at present a large stock of lovely, artistic papers, all in large quan
tities. The patterns are quiet and dignified, and the colors very satisfying and harmoni
ous. We wish to make room for other merchandise and will therefore sell these papers
at remarkable reductions. There are about ten thousand rolls in all and two hundred
patterns to select from.

Story of Heroism of Portland Boy,
Injured by Explosion, Comes
to Li;ht.
With the end of the war and lifting
of the censorship many heroes are com
ing to light. Among these is a Port
land boy, formerly referred to in dis
patches simply as a "dotrghboy." He is
Sergeant Ferris VY. Abbett, son of Kev.
T. Abbett of University Park church.
Karly last year, when tha first of
the Oregon boys were landing in
France, a story in The Oregonian told
of a deed of heroism in one of the
American camps.
A bunch of doughboys had been
standing together when M hand gren
ade fell in their midst, instantly one
of the boys stepped forward and stood
on the grenade. It exploded but in
ured none save the brave boy. He was
In the hospital for several weeks be
cause of "eating too much French
cheese. he told his friends.
When Dr. Carl Doney. president of
Willamette university, came back from
France, ha aeemed surprised to learn
that no one here, not even the boy's
parents, knew of the incident. The
news later was corroborated by others
returning from the front.
Sergeant Abbett is with the supply
train of the lt2d regiment. He ar
rived at Camp Lewis recently and Is
ezpected to return to Portland next
week. He has been doing clerical work
since his injury in the "line of duty."

allowed by the county commissioners.
Commissioner Muck dissenting.
Question as to the legality of the pro
ceeding was set at rest yesterday when
District Attorney Evans opined that if
the county commissioners desired to
convert roads under their jurisdiction
into motorcycle race courses on a Sun
day afternoon,, there was a statute in
the 1917 session laws quite apparently
designed to give them that privilege.
The statute may appear to contradict
other laws and to abrogate the speed
laws of the state, which provide that
25 miles an hour shall be the limit on
Oregon highways, but It Is on the books
and its legality has yet to be brought
into question by court action.
Citizens who might object to the in-
terference with their rights to travel
on that county road during those hours,
citizens who believe Sunday is a day of
rest and should not be devoted to races,
residents along the road who might de
sire to go in or .out of their homes
during that period may blame the leg-

Pellets. Then surround yourself with hot water bottles. It is a
fact mentioned by physicians of the largest experience that the effort
on the part of nature to throw off the poisons results sometimes in
inflammation of the kidneys. It is therefore Very important to assist
nature in eliminating the toxins (poisons) from the body thru the
bowels, skin and kidneys. Not only should this be carefully attended
to by the sick, but by the person who wishes to ward off an attack. A
new kidney remedy called " An uric" (anti-uric) can be obtained of the
druggist. This "Anuric" flushes the bladder and kidneys and throws
off the poisons (toxins), and should be taken with hot water or hot
lemonade. Clear the nose with some good antiseptic spray or
