Of course much more can be spent by
patronising the various amusement en
terprises. This schedule is on tbe basis
of a five-dav stav at the Fair. All who
can poss ibly do so should spend at least
ten days, however. For these the ex
pense need not be quite so great per day
as it may be possible to get rooms st a
lower rate by engaging tbem lor a week
or more, and the entire expense per day
may be reduced to $2.50. The person
who spends the longer period should
take advantage ol the opportunity to
view some wondertul scenery within s
rhort distance ol Portland. A five-cent
tare by street car takes one to Portland
Heights where a wonderfully fins view
ol the city, the Willamette and Colom

twit inexpensive trips include a visit Thy

these trips may be deducted irom the
fifty cents a day allotted tor Trail at

expense lor these features need not ex
ceed tbe $2 50 laid aside in figuring tbe
cost ol the five-dsy trip.

ol a rive-lay and a ten-day stay at tha
