The run of fish has fallen oft and re
ceipts were light yesterday at the
various packing houses. The Co-operative
cannery officials had been re
ceiving large quantities of fish from
the glllnetters and had engaged all the
available men they could find around
town. Yesterday there was not work
enough to keep the force busy. The
fish that were brought In came from
lower harbor points, and nearly ail
were taken by glllnet fishermen. Re
ceipts kept the packing houses going
for only a few hours. The falling oft
tn the run waa a disappointment to
packers and fishermen, who expected
the run would continue. The outlook
for a full pack Is not encouraging.

closed arrangements for the carnival,
but will do so during the coming week.
Securely guarded on board the ori
ental liner Aragonla are three Jans,
who are being: returned to their na

migration omaais. Tne men were
stowaways on the liner when she ar
rived, and upon their return to Japan
they will meet the fute which befell
their comrades, who were found just
before the .vessel started across the
ocean. The stowaways captured at
that time were taken ashore to be be
headed, the penalty, so the steamer's
officers were Informed, for an effort
to steal out of the country. The three
men now aboard the Aragonla were
not found until after the vessel ar
rived at Astoria. Three Chinese are
on the liner's passenger list, but they
are going home to rejoin their friends,
and not to be placed upon tbe execu
The Dorcas Society met last evening
at the home of Miss Alema Nylund. A
large number of young people were
present and enjoyed themselves In the
usual pleasant manner. A feature of
the aesslon waa the needlework con
test The merrymakers were furnished
with the necessary material and in
structed to sew to their hearts' con
tent. Each selected the particular ob
ject which he thought himself most
proficient ai matting and some rare
articles thus came Into existence. Mrs.
Rydqulst took the tody's first prize,
while the second prize went to Miss
Betsy Enberg. Charles O. Palmberg
captured the gentleman's first prize in
common canter, and the second
prize went to Allen Y. Anderson. Rev.
Rydqulst, who organized the society
three years ago, was present and ad
dressed the membera. After the ad-
resa a few Instrumental selections
were rendered by Miss Nylund and re
freshments were served.
Do You Know
F. C. Barnes haa returned to Port
land from South Bend, Wash., where
he was making preparations to start
up his cannery for the fall run, and
adding some Improvements to the
ptant, and enlarging Its capacity. He
expects that the run of salmon will
be short, as It has been during1 the en
tire season, and believes that prices
Hi rule higher on account of the
scarcity. Mr. Barnes said: "I will
probably put up 20,000 cases. There Is
demand from Japan for white meated
suit salmon, but they do not want to
pay over 2 ft cents a pound. It will
not pay to supply the fish at that price.
have given a Japanese firm prices on
200,000 bound shipment, but doubt
being accepted at the quoted rate.'
Mr. Barnes also owns a cannery in
southeastern Alaska. He says salmon
are scarce there this season as in other
aces. He shipped 80,000 cases from
Alaska to Japan last year, but they
I usually prefer the dog salmon, which
are partially dressed and salted In the
ship. He did not know whether or not
It was rehandled at San Francisco be
fore It was sent to Jupari.
"What we need Is good roads," said
County Commissioner Larson last
evening, talking Informally at the
meeting of the development league
delegations. "Every third house in the
Nehalem valley Is deserted, because
the people could not get their produce
to town. It used to be the same on
the Lewis and Clark, but since we ex
tended the roads to the valley of that
stream the country has been settled
and the people are all well-to-do. The
Nehalem country is the finest of its
kind In the world, and If we can only
extend the Nehalem road the farmers
will settle there." Mr. Larson sug
gests the Idea of a good roads meet
ing of Nehalem valley farmers, and be
lieves representative men from As
toria ought to make a trip to that sec
tion some tlme.during the year. 3. T.
Ross states that most of the potatoes
bought by tbe merchants of Astoria
are sent to the city from Washington
towns along the river. He says the
price seldom falls below 70 or 75 cents
a sack, and. In view of Mr. Larson's
statement that a farmer can market
potatoes for 4jj cents a sack, the Indus
try should be successfully carried on
here. The secret of the failure of
farming lies in the lack of good roads,
and It will hereafter be the aim of the
business men to secure highways lead
ing to the sections back of Astoria.

The oriental liner Aragonla arrived
down the river yesterday and proceed
ed 10 ton elevens, where she was
anchored. The Aragonla has a cargo
valued at considerably more than a
quarter of a million dollars, and her
charterers are not at all anxious to
send her to sea Just at present, while
the Vladivostok squadron Is raiding
the sea near the coast of Japan. It
waa stated upon reliable authority
last evening that the Aragonla would
be held here Indefinitely, awaiting more
favorable advices from the far east
wltfi reference to the operations of
the Russian fleet. The Arabia, sister
ship to the Aragonla, is now In the
hands of a prize crew, and the O. R.
& N. Co. will probably not take any
more chances with the daring Rus
sians. The Aragonla's cargo is valued
at $294,489.13, which would be quite1
a nifty capture for the squadron. Shei
takes away 60,800 barrels of flour,
worth 1203,200. The vessel will re-
The worm Is full of machine-made
people. An educational system which
will take into account differences of
temperament or of natural gifts, all
craving expression and development,
does not appear to have been devised.
Schools and commercial colleges are
turning out students who are mere
automatons, and when they go out Into
business life they quite expect to be
treated as machines, operated by
cranks. They are not to be considered
as "women who think," and in conse
quence their development Is slow and
their natural faculties dwarfed.
Employers may well learn that the
development of Individual thought and
responsibility in their assistants by
imposing trust and confidence will
bring rich returns In intelligent devo
tion to duty and at the same time make
the atmosphere of the work room or
office radiant with the sunshine of
happy endeavor and consistent ser
vice. MADAME, for August.
