'Indications are . that contracts will
soon be let for the building of a number
of boats to ply oa the apper Columbia
driver. It will be possible to have them
ready for service by early spring, which I
is . In time to bring tha major portion of
tha grain crop to tha portage road from
the territory of tha upper Columbia and
Snake river valleys. In fact the, liver
will be at a better boating stage thea
thaa at 'any ether season of the year." i
'. Mr. Supple says be will build . any
. boats contracted for at Portland and
'ship them in knocked down form to
CelUO. He has built and shipped a num-
ber of eterawheelera and propellers la
.this manner for service in Alaskan
waters, - . .
The fame of the Portland shipbuilders
has spread to the orient, and had It not

agency of this modern and perfectly constructed range, ?THE MALLEABLE." A rane that
combines great economy and satisfying results, In baking and heating
Malleable Iron Is the very' highest grade of gray Iron submitted after casting to an annealing
process.' - In this process the carbon is burned out and all Impurities are; eliminated, thus giv
ing It great tensile strength. . It Is pure' Iron and can be stretched, doubled, hammered and
twisted without breaking. To anneal these castings, they are placed In' iih immense sealed
oven and are given heat for sixteen days,' .These castings -when ; removed from the annealing
process, are fashioned back into their original shape by. huge drop hammers and by hand.
