of the Country.
The tour from which Mr. and Mrs.
John Annand. 7 Hoyt street, have Just
returned, ranka among the most notable
trips taken by Portlanders this year.
Mr. Annand la manager ot the Portland
bualness of the Postal Telegraph and
Cable company, and In 10 years he had
not found time to revisit hla old home In
eastern Canada, Laat summer he se
cured leave of absence for nine weeks,
and arranged to take a trip covering the
entire country. He made stops of a few
days at Bait Lake, Denver, Colorado
Bprlnga. Omaha. Chicago, St. Loula, New
Orleans, Chattanooga, Chlcamaugua
Park. Atlanta. Washington, New York,
Boston, Montreal, Toronto and his boy
hood home near that city, Niagara Falls.
Detroit. Sheboygan. St. Paul. Minne

and Seattle. When he arrived borne and
figured It up he had traveled more than
10,000 miles by rail, bealdea 1,000 miles

"At every place where I stopped the
people seemed to be Informed about the
Lewis and Clark exposition." he said. "In
the southern ststes the most Interest is
shown. 1 heard a good many people
there say that they had cut out the St.
Louis fair thla year because tbey wanted
to come to Portland next summer and
see the country, and take In the- Lewis
and Clark fair. From my observations
on this trip. I should say we will have
plenty of people here next summer."
Mr. and Mrs. Annand reached Winni
peg Dec. 1 on their return trip, and
found a heavy snow and a temperature
of J7 degrees below sero. They stopped
for a day and took a gutter ride. At

sesson so far Is being given nightly.
The Clifford lady with her eworda Is
creating marvelous Interest. The Mar
tels with their bicycles still continue
favorites, and the 'Berger brothers do
an acrobatic act that surpasses any ever
seen hers before. The rest of the bill
is on a par with the numbers men

Great Show at the Star.
Nothing haa been seen In vaudeville to
excel the program which the Star thea
tre la offering this week. The growth
of popular price vaudeville Is shown In
the fact that this program lncludea two
troupes of four performers each, one
trio, besides duos and single acta. To
morrow afternoon will be published in
The Journal a coupon, which will entitle
the bearer to admission to either of the
matinees on Friday afternoon, at half
price. This Is a chance to see a 60 cent
show for S cents.
Money is thrown on the stage at the
Arcade theatre this week. It consists
mostly of nickels but that does not al
ter the fact that It is a very remarkable
tribute to the merit of an act; It is very
seldom that the performances of the Ren
nee family falls to evoke 'this financial
shower. The Rennee family la compoaed
of five performers, three of whom are
aged three, four snd five respectively,
and the occasion for the money throwing
is found In the scene where the two elder
performers appear aa street beggars.

The Black Patti Troubadours will ap

next week, starting Tuesday, December
