Astoria. Oct. 6. (Editor The Astor
ian). It Is gratifying to know that
our friend from Wisconsin appreciates
my Interest in Astoria, anil likewise
gratifying to observe that he has noted
some signs of change. Why, If he re
mains here another week he'll surety
run across someone who knows better
than to say "yep."
Our friend says he experienced some
ditllculty In locating Sixteenth and Ex
change streets because of the absence
of street signs. Well! well! I am
urprlsed. Here we have a gentlemen
from the east a critic of matters
municipal yet he encountered trouble
In his search for Sixteenth and Ex
hange streets because he did not ul
low his glance to rest on the cement
sidewalks, where the names of the
treets are chiseled In large, plain
letters! Surely, our eastern friend
must be behind the times In one re
spect, nnd it ought to be satisfying to
Astorlans to note that we have been
able to teach him at least one munici
But I am writing more for the pur
pose of disputing the easterner's poor
Idea of our English than for that of
pointing out his apparent Ignorance
of the up-to-date methods which we
have employed In numbering our strets
(and I might add that we have begun
numbering our houses in the same
manner; saves the trouble of walk
ing onto front porches when one Is
anxious to locate a residence by its
number). My business brings me Into
dally contact with many people east
erners, westerners, southerners and
New Englanders, It has ben my ex
perlence that westerners use better
language than the people of any other
section of the country. I have heard
the expression "yep" employed Jocu
larly by westerners, and frequently
have heard it in the farming communi
ties of the northwest, but after a long
residence in Astoria I can truthfully
say that I have never beard the word
seriously employed by any of the na
tives of this particular section.
Nor have I noticed a manifest dis
position on the part of Astorlans to
yawn when some stranger approaches
them to engage In conversation. Oc
casionally, perhaps, the circumstances
may Justify a yawn, or a scries of
yawns, but It has been my observa
tion that Astorians are too well versed
In deportment to give vent to their
feelings of unrest. I believe our friend
from Wisconsin has overdrawn mat
ters to more thoroughly emphasize
the point which he sought to bring
out. Astorlans will average up very
nicely with people of other cities in
the matter of English.
Now, I do not desire to antagonize
our visiting friend. I know he Is ac
tuated by n desire to better Astoria,
and I am satisfied his letters will have
a decidedly beneficial effect, In point
ing out to us the fact that visitors are
always observing. But he is not
well Informed. People who have lived
here three or four years could relate
to him a story full of interest. Four
years ago our streets disgraced the
name. The residence section was ap
pallingly unclean and the sidewalks
were veritable pitfalls. Even the busi
ness section was unsightly, and gener
lly the appearance of the city was so
delapldated as to disgust visitors and
residents. Had our friend visited us
three years ago, his letters .would now
be full of praise for the advancement
which we have now made. There is
still much room for improvement, but

My baby was about six weeks old
when the top of her head became cov
ered with thick scales, which would
peel and come off, taking the hair with
it. It would soon form again and be as
bad as before. I tried several things
and then went to the doctor. Ho said
It was Eczema, and prestubod an oint
ment, which did not do any good. A
friend spoke of Cutlcura Soap. I tried
it and read on the wrapper about Cutl
cura Ointment as a remedy for Eczema.
I bought a box and, washed her head la
warm water and Cutlcura Soap and
gently combed the scales off. Titer did
not come back end her hair grew out
