Referring to the jute bag factory in the
Walla Walla penitentiary, the Union
Journal says the directors will soon pub
lish their annual report, and then exact
figures will be given to show, the state's
profit by the running of the jute mill.
It was said last summer that with the
new invoice of jute then just ordered,
the state would reduce the cost of jute
bags nearly two cents each by the differ
ence in cost of material. Those made
this year could not cost more than five
cents each and those of next year will
consequently be made for three cents or
a fraction over. ; This may be regarded
ae good news for the farmer as well as
for .the tax payer of the state' generally.

It is said that a Portland man, who

to make arrangements for beginning a

shows a woeful waste of money expend
ed in lawfully educating sons for the bar.
Referring to an excerpt on the first

to ask : What is there to prevent any
one or all of Oregon's interested citizens
to make a similar exhibit to that of the

public, there be many in Webfoot "who
will decide that the state exhibit of wis

having met each other over on the John

his head and looked as sneaking as a
hyena, and had nothing to say. The
Herald savs Mr. Snipes told Mr. Baird
he was satisfied the Zachary boys and
Cal Hale were innocent men, and he
also expressed himself emphatically in
condemnation of the fool Sullivan and

Nothing succeeds like success, and no
such success has ever been known at

being unlucky is put to multiplied test
in the new 25-cent pieces. On one side
of the coin there is no less than . ten
repetitions of the number 13. There are
13 stars, 13 letters in the scroll held in
the eagle's beak, 13 marginal feathers
in. each wing, 13 tail feathers, 13 paral

Sometime about Thanksgiving past,
Mrs. 8. L. Brooks sent a choice collec
tion of beautiful roses and chrysanthe
mums from her flower garden in this
city to a relative living near St. Paul,
Minn. The flowers arrived in good con
dition, but as the lady was then in St.
Paul, visiting a married daughter, . her
husband forwarded them. They reached
St. Paul just in time for a pink luncheon
her daughter was giving to about thirty
five of her lady friends. One of her
guests received a box of roses and chrys
anthemums from California the same
day, and brought them over'" for the
ladies to admire ; thus it happened that
Oregon and California "came with their
flowers to ' help brighten the house."
Minnesota's offerings were pink chrsy
anthemums grown in the green house,
at 75 cents per dozen. With the ther
mometer down to zero that day, writes
the lady, "I must tell you that your
flowers were "very much admired and
talked about by the ladies. For the dis
tance they had traveled, and as they
were grown out of doors, in the open
air, it made them objects of more in
terest .than- our home grown flowers.
Please accept my thanks ' for. , the love
that prompted you in sending them, for
I assure you we all appreciate them:''

Biennial Report of the State Weather
Factory. With Observer Stationed
at Portland. '
From the Salem Statesman.
State Printer Baker now has a force 'of
twenty-six men employed in the state
printing office and they are running full
time. . The biennial report of the Oregon
state weather bureau, co-operating, with
the United States department' of agri
culture's weather bureau, is now in
hand. H. E. Haynes is director of the
bureau and B. S. Paguo local forecast of
ficial. In this report they recommend
the printing of 50,000 copies of the re
port, and ask an appropriation of $2,000
for the purchase of instruments, etc.
Since the last biennial report was ren
dered, the work of establishing stations
of observrtion has steadily progressed,
until now there are eighty points in tbe
state having standard government in
struments, from which vital climatic
data can be and is ascertained.
Especial attention has been paid to
the extension of the service, especially
in the more sparsely and comparatively
unknown counties removed from.1 -the
center ot population. It has been es
pecially endeavored to fit out the various
colleges of the state very completely in
order that the students may hve the
benefits of the practical work of meteor
ological observation. The state univer-
wty .government experiment station, i
Pacific university, and Mt. Angel college
are thoroughly equipped with meteoro
logical instruments. The state Normal
school at Monmouth is also soon to be
equipped. The first meteorological
records made in Oregon were those made
by the U. S. Hospital ,corps in July,
1850 ; the first were commenced at Fort
Dalles, and during.the next month they
were commenced at Astoria. The long
est continuous record of precipitation in
the state made by private individuals is
that made by Thos. Pierce, at his farm
on Eola hills, they forming an uninter
rupted record . of twenty-two consecu
tive years. The ' longest record, cover
ing a .period of eighteen years, made by
k private .-individual, '.of temperature,
precipitation, etc., is tbe record made
by Saml. Li Brooks; ot The Dalles. The
record made by John B'riggs, at Albany,
and the one mad by George Bennett, at
Bandon, each covering a period of over
fifteen years, form the next 'largest
recoraln the state;"1-'-''

' When the workmen were laying the
bituminous 'pavement on Washington
street in Portland, about one year ago,
Mr. Frank Dekum earnestly protested
at the manner the work was performed
between the rails and 1 over the ties of
the car line. His protest was carried in
to the columns of the press, and at least
one editor we know of was soundly be
rated . by Engineer . Habersham for
''making such a mistake." . Dekum'a
protest fell flat, and he hud a right to
protest, as he felt he was throwing his- -twenty-dollar
gold pieces to the heathen,
