Mr. Cogswell moved that this action
be taken after a communication had

The First Street Improvement asso
ciation anked the city to take Immediate
sctlon In repairing the wooden block
pavement on First where, particularly
between Yamhill and Stark streets, the
blocks are worn out and loose. The
letter stated that the city had guaran-
- teed this pavement. ,
Bomb the Heraatee' '
City Engineer Taylor and City At
torner McNary said tha municipality
had guaranteed only- those portions
where the full number of blocks had
been laid. In front of the Kamm prop-
i erty for Instance, only 10.000 square
yarda bad been laid Instead of the
requisite 180,000. This belna the case
the property owners are more respon
sible for the condition of the pavement
than la the city and Improvements
- must come from them. ,
.A number of street Improvement bids
were opened. Among; the largest wsre
the following:' Russell street. Warren

Friend of The Dalles, I sent the answer
to your Interesting ekldoo problem, but
to, date the prise haa not reached me."
The failure of the prise to reach Mr.
Friend would be unaccountable. If it
were not for one thing: It waan't sent
Mr. Friend says he forwarded two an
swers: The first gave the boy St pen
nies, one for each , box, and the other
gave B,S4,I$5,I01 pennies, which 'can
be' divided by any number from 1 to
22, and have 1 remainder. '.Maybe In
these figures is found the reason why
the pussle editor baa been dilatory; U
takes some little time to divide that
sum by so many other sums. Mr.
Friend of The Dalles and all the other
friends of the pussle editor ehould be
patient; the answers to the skldoo prob
lem have come In so thick and rest mat
It has been rather hard to classify and
segregate them. The work Is being
done Just as fast as possible.
In thle connection a very Interesting
announcement , regarding the skldoo
problem will be made in The Sunday
Journal tomorrow, and those who are
interested in the contest should see It.
Everyone understands, of course, that
the prises are to be given for the best
solution to the problem. It la a plain
mathematical proposition anyone can
do It, and for that reason the reader
who glvee what would he considered the
cleverest answer In the way of brevity,
