WE'RE CHEERFUL, TOO!
All Astoria and Clatsop people are
very cheerful over the announced sal
of the "A. & C." and the Morning A.
torian Is going to be cheerful about
It, too. We do not desire to dispar
age nor discount any blessings that
may be headed this way, and are dis
posed to fall right in line with the
courageous and hopeful and sanguine
and to take over the promise of the
case and nourish it to the last ex
pression of its fruition.
Mr. Hill is coming down the no.th
bank of the Columbia. He la goin
to establish terminal facilities and
rates for that point of departure for
trans-oceanic cargoes. By the alleged
sale of the A. & C. Railway, already
down the south bank, there is, at hand
a parallel establishment of the same
valuable conditions of commerce and
this means an immense deal for As
toria, while it means at the same time
that Astoria has much to do for her
self and cannot lie supinely back and
wait for some great master of com
merce to do it all. If we are to have
mills and docks and terminal facili
ties and the common-rate on grain
and all the innuring advantages con
sequent upon meeting the competitive
tactics of Mr. Hill, Astoria must get
In right away and do her part in con
serving the immense business that ia
morally certain to head in here.
She'll do it, too! Already her peo
ple are livening up to the call of tho
moment and there is a spirit of enter
prise conspicuously apparent. And
this will broaden and deepen, and mak?
good, jUBt as fast as the purposes of
the new system shall develope. Let
every man stand pat for the chan?.v
that are imminent and the benefits
that are certain if they are sought!

The editor of the Jewell (Kan.) Re
publican says: "We would like to see
one Kansas county settled entirely by
mail order people, and see what woull
happen. The stores would stand It a
long as they could and then move
. . . . ( .1
awav. Hanks would close tneir uoor.
The newspapers would quit. The ho.
tels would go out of business." Etc.
Well, let us consider. Mail order peo
ple don't act as though they had much
sense, but they would never live !n a
county like that. They are tne -ery
ones who expect the most at horn?.
The editor ends the item with ll.e
sentence: ' Who would buy a farm so
located that he couldn't drive to s"ii?f
sort of a town? A sane man wouldn't
take such land at half price. lie a
friend to your home town and It will
be a friend to you.'
Mere's our short time offer for bo h
a used l'lanola and a used Whit In
piano, each In a French walnut case
and as good us new for playing pur
poses. We had Intended selling each
Instrument separately, getting $25 fv
the Whitney, because It hail beu
rented, and $IS0 for the l'lanola (It
having been used), or a total for l' e
two of $425, If sold separately to dif
ferent people. Now there are many
persons In this city who would like
to own a Pianola and piano, both, and
to such we offer to accept $3S5 '
these two Instruments on terms of $'0
down and $15 per month. We will '
dude a year's five membership In our
l'lanola circulating library, which gives
the member the use of twenty differ
ent pieces of rtunolu music each
month for twelve months; or two hun
dred and forty different pieces In all
for the year.
This Is a splendid opportunity f n
some one, but good for only a few
days. We will sell the l'lanola sep
arately for $1X0 on $10 payments, or
the Whitney piano separately for $-4"
en IS payments.
We will accept an organ or old plan-;
at actual value on either Instrument
or both: and we will make an nfV"
on the l'lanola and any other plai.o
you may want.

Tapioca Is going up in price. Still,
it is possible to live, after a fashion,

The discovery by science that prop
erly fitted glasses will destroy tne
appetite for strong drink may throve
many of us who wear glasses open to
the suspicion that we are taking tha

It is all right to do good deeds ex
pecting some return, but we get tired
of the many very good people who
practice tying a string to every piece
of bread they cast upon the waters.
A GOOD SIGN.
The thorough and speedy organl ra
tion of the Oregon legislature Is a
good sign of the business-like pur
poses of the assembly, and indicates
the spirit of aggressive and progress
ive action in both branches. It is to
be most earnestly hoped the legisla
tors will adhere to the indicia and
move swiftly and surely to the accom
plishment of their best and largest
purposes with little, or no, consider
ation of the political tactics of hedging
and delay. The people at large are
looking for .something very certain ani
peculiarly effective from this session,
and will not put up with any undue
procrastination. There are many vital
matters awaiting trenchant and flr-a-
disposal, among them the wiping cut
of bald grafts and the reconstruction
nf the railway laws of the State.
Oregon has borne enough of lngi.-Ia
tive tolerance with these vicious ele
merits and the hour is at hand for the'r
emancipation from the evils. Tl.
remedies in .view and to be appKol
must be of a quality and thoroughness
that will restore the dominance of tn
state's authority and give the relief
flatly demanded by the people, or
there will be some plain dealing don
with the men who are responsible for
the failure. Every item of procedu-e
will be closely watched this winter
and an exacting tab kept on every mai
and his record will be rehearsed tc
We often wonder why idle people
don't bother each other. But they
don't. They aren't happy unless they
bother somebody who wants to be
busy.
A Japanese laundryman in Atlanta
advertises that he will "wash ladies at
$2 a hundred and gentlemen at $1.50
a hundred." The Atlanta ladles should
indignantly resent this Intimation that
they are less cleanly than the gentle
men.

Prof. Holden, the corn expert, says
that every ear of corn Intended for
seed for next year's crop that is hung
up and dried thoroughly before the
hard freezing weather will go towards
adding millions of dollars of profit to
the corn crop.
It was only thirty years ago that the

APPEARANCES
Often a person is sized up by his appear
ance; by the tone that surrounds him. And
more often a business house is sized up by
the stationary it uses. A cheap letter
head or a poor bill head gives a mighty
poor first impression and makes business
harder to transact. Good printing costs no
more than poor printing. The first im
pression is half the battle in business.
You wouldn't employ a "sloppy" sales
man; why put up with "sloppy" station
ery, that gives a wrong impression of the
importance of your business. Let us do
your printing and help you to make that
ten strike.
