much of the easterner's narrative Is
painfully true, Some of tho streets
in some of the residence sections are

the easterner's view that Astoria, to
the man who travels ever certain sec

the left we see the hospital grounds
to the right the foundation of the new
50,000 city hall. We Jook east and
e macadam streets and cement side
walks. To the south we see the same
fine streets and sidewalks, and to the
west conditions are exactly the same.
"Pretty fine streets you have here,"
comments our friend from Wisconsin.
"Xlce sidewalks, too."
"Yep," I reply (employing the lan
guage of the natives).
"Cost lots of money, don't they," ho.
"A good deal."
"What did this street cowt?" he goe
on, indicating Sixteenth.
"How njany blocks?"
Then we go up Sixteenth and Frank
lin avenue, and in every direction we
see macadam streets and cement side
walks. At Fifteenth and Franklin the
streets are of macadam and the walks
of cement In every direction, and the
same a block further south.
"Those streets and walks look new,"
remarks our friend. ', ,

Koing to Improve those utreets down

The roik supply at present prevents
more extensive work, but we feel that
the start having been made, we wll
come out all right.

"What's the population of j'our
county?" asks the easterner.
"Twenty thousand," replies the
"lly Jove! You people surely are en
terprising." Our visiting friend accepts my Invi
tation to have a some h e cream soda,
and as we start fur the business dis
trict he remarks:
"Singular, Isn't It, that when n town
commences to be a city It commence
all at once!"
I agree with him, nnd then add:
"And don't you know, the people are
Improving, too. Why, every once In
a while I hear some enterprising As
torlan saying 'yes' for 'yep'!"
Moral: The knocker will always
overlook your good points like a whit

ones until they resemble mountains.

Stroessel Gives Praise and Thanks for
Chefoo, Oct. 3, 2 p. m. An official
report from General Stoessel, dated
September 23, reached Chefoo today,
confirming a previous report of the re
pulse of the Japanese attack on Port
Arthur, which began September 19 and
ended September 22. The fight was of
an extremely severe character. The
Japanese having retired, General Stoes
sel issued the following proclamation:
"Glory! Thanks to God! Glory to
our heroic garrison. Glory to Illmann,
Sychaff and Poggorsk heroes all!
Thanks to our valiant volunteers who
routed the enemy from the trenches,
destroying them. God has permitted
us to repulse the enemy. Praise to
they Indulge In foolish escapades, re
ports of which are spread broadcast
about the country, giving a wrong Im
presslon of American student life. The
thing that I want to leave with the
young men of today Js that the repu
tatlon of the University of Michigan Is
in your hands and that you should
see to It that your conduct does not
reflect upon Us good name."
The Star tells all about it this week.

Ann Arbor University 8ends Out Most
Ann Arbor, Mich., Ott. 3. Over 800
students gathered in University Hall
to hear President Angell's annual ad
dress to the new arrivals. He took
up the question of immorality in Uni
versities. "Compare 3000 students with 8000
young men outside of college," said
President Angell, 'and you will find
that the collegians are fully up to the
moral of their non-college brethren. As
for Mlchlgna, she sends out more for
