THE WINNEMUCCA ROUTE.
HOW YOU CAN MAKE ONE DRESS SERVE
FOR HALF A DOZEN—ALL FROM
A preliminary survey of the Oregon
and Winnemucca route has been go
ing on some time, and is about complet
ed. The Eugene Guard of the 7 th, re-
ferring to this matter, say9 :
Mr. Colby, who has been engaged
for some time past in making a pre
liminary survey for the line of the
Winnemucca railroad, was in town
last week, and he expressed himself
highly satisfied with the results. He
thinks there will be no trouble in
building a railroad from Eugene to
Winnemucca. The grade from Eu
gene to the top of the Cascade moun
tains is very easy excepting about five
miles near the summit, and that small
distance he thinks can be easily over
come. The principal difficulties are
met on this side of the mountains, for
on the other side there is a gentle
grade from the top of the mountain
until you reach the high level plain
beyond. The distance from here to
the summit is some seventy-five or
eighty miles, and doubtless the heavy
grade near the summit for the last five
miles can bo distributed along the line
for many miles and thereby rendered
very easy. Parties are out now look
ing for a lower pas9 near Diamond’s
Peak, which will make the grade less
than on the line of the Central Mili
tary Road. The country through
which the line of the road will run is
susceptible of settlement, and in a few
years will produce freight in the way
of grain, wool and stock to make the
road remunerative to the builders—
say nothing of the stream of immi
grants that will be constantly pouring
into Oregon by reason of the connec
tion with the great trunk leading to
the Atlantic States. The Winnemuc
ca route is the shortest and cheapest

you are the possessor of a summer
dress, made from some white diaph

you have inspected goods of similar

which you have purchased sufficient
materials to construct a number of
those bewildering garments in com

the most elaborate works of modern
engineering furnish no parallel. Now,
a learned German professor has in
vented a plan whereby your single
white dress may be changed as often
as you desire to any color you may
fancy, and this in your own laundry,
so that hereafter the money which
you would devote to robes of varying
hues may he entirely saved, while you
may appear daily, if you choose, in
toilets of different complexion. The
process is very simple, and consists
merely in coloring the starch used in
the “doing up.”
* Suppose a white is to be tinted a

fuschin, an analine color which any
chemist can readily procure for you. are
dissolved in twenty parts of glycerine,
and mixed in a mortar with a little
water. Then ordinary starch, finely
pulverized, is stirred in, and the thick
mass obtained is poured out and dried
on blotting paper. The powder thus
obtained is used just the same as com
mon starch, and so applied to the
fabric. When the latter is dry* it is
slightly sprinkled and pressed with a
moderately’ warm iron. By means of
other coloring materials, mixed as
above described, any desired tint may
be obtained. We should counsel how
