Martin claimed that his partner, a
man named MaeGunel. was out of the
city. A crudely written sin appeared
on the house to the effect that the
candy company desired to reach the
art of ..candy-making and offers to
equip people With pots, kettles and
tools to make candy after learning.

If It Is possible for the reader to con
Jure up In his or her mind one of th
filthiest hovels imaginable, then a per
fect Idea can be had of conditions ex

you like, the presence In, the place, of
a sickly cat which was being fed from

4 Unsanitary Conditions.
Clothing of the filthiest character

least one of the proprietors of the place
sleeps In the rooms.
In. front of the olace.and within

scarlet fever flak dangles 15 children

kitchen of one family. Huddled Into
that kitchen was a woman with several
children. No carpet on the floor and
large cracks In the floor permits th
filth to sift through and disease and
other germs cannot help but sprinkle
on tne candy as made by tne proprie
tors or the fort land candy company.
This house haa sewer connections but

a long sine lined bench extending along

NEW FALL TIES ARE CREATIONS
PICKED OUT BY WOMEN IN EUROPE
Ing society women went to Europe this
summer and saw the beauUful purple
silks worn In Paris, every man who
pretends to wear the correct thing tn
scarfs and neckties, will have te dabble
In purle and hello, around the-holiday
season.. This edict haa gone forth and
Is the first - Instance ' known .where
women have been able to pick out neck
ties for men.
Herman A. Meyers of -New Tork City
and representing one of the leading
firms In the country In this particular
line la at the Portland hotel, where he
told about this season's wear aa he
showed off the particular shades that
won the eyes and favor of the Ameri
cans In Paris.
"Holiday shades will be purple and
hello,' said Mr. Meyer as he dexter
.ously placed a huge roll of the beauti
ful silk below an original painting from
the New York art exhibit. "Blending
' of colors is another thing - that will
make neckties a thing of beauty and a
Joy forever this year. We have bronse
brown and Orleans blue, while In the
red ws have shades that are bewilder
ing. "Tills series Is a blend gathered from
a tie worn by the man who1 played the
"Man of the Hour", in New fork. His
was a bright red. It seemed odd In
New Tork and a small rage followed.
"This Copenhagen blue la a beautiful
thing that will undoubtedly prove pop
ular. But aa I said, there will be much
in tne Dienaing or tne brown shsdes
These have been proving the best sell
ers and consequently have ' been the
ones on which the most work has been
done to procure harmony. An effort has
been made to procure an oriental effect
This Is the result" .
And here Mr. Meyers showed a beau
tiful piece of silk which looked mors
like a delicate Mosaic, so dainty and
light was It tn texture. Above the dis
play of Copenhagen blue, Mr. Meyers
has another original picture from the
New Tork art exhibit by Adair. It Is
a picture of the grand canyon . of .the
coioraao river and is in blue.
All about the room. In hugs wicker
baskets, on tables and clinging around
large earthen vases, are rolls and piles

the city to put In 20-Inch mains which
they have on hand Instead of waiting
on the Oswego riant or the eaatern

paving can be rinlsned. This step is
thought most Imperative by the busi
ness men, as contractors say unless the
street is pavea before it becomes soaked
with the fall rains It will have to go
over until another summer. The streets
of the- central- east side absorb much
more water on account of their com
position of soft soil than the streets in
other parts of ths city.

The city water board will lay no more

recoanlse. however, the urcent necessity
of laying these mains at once, and the
uncertainty of proceeding under the re

ssalls Its validity. It is possible, too.
that the board will be enjoined from
proceeding under that amendment. It
would seem that the board would Incur
no liability by proceeding to lay the
mains according to the old methods,

for the current year and since the fund
