Arrival of C. N. Miller, of Portland,
Agent fur the Chicago Home-
Mr. C. L. Schmidt is now in possession
of the Red Front grocery store, formerly
occupied by John Booth, and he would
like to have his friends and the public in
general call on him and inspect ' his
line of fine groceries, fresh California
vegetables, etc. , etc. This store has long
been popular by reason of the careful
attention to business and enterprise of
its former management, and the new
owner proposes to maintain the excellent
reputation it has deservedly secured.

Mr. C. N. Miller of Portland visited
our city today in the interest of the
World's Fair Headquarters Organiza
tion, which is to be maintained in the
central business portion of the. city of
Chicago during the term of the exposi
tion. Its object is one of "great interest to
people of Oregon who take pride in the
advancement of the state, and it is to
render very necessary aid to all Oregon
visitors to the fair. Oregon has no state
building upon the fair grounds, and is
therefore compelled to put forth an
effort to insure it a place between such
competitors as California on the south
and Washington on the north.
Mr. Miller claims that $5,000 expended
for a city headquarters will do more for
the advancement of the state and the
convenience of its people than ten times
the amount put into a building upon the
fair grounds. It will be a rendezvous for
all the people of the state, and with re
ception, reading, sitting and toilet
rooms will be a retreat of great conven
ience to our people. There will be
maintained a postoffice department and
all facilities for correspondence, and
Oregonians may have their messages,
express packages, etc., sent there, with
assurance of safe and prompt delivery.
The securing of hotel accommodations,
boarding and lodging house apart
ments by letter, telegram or personal
call at headquarters immediately upon
arrival in the city is but one of the !
privileges of the organization to be ex
tended in Chicago without other ex
pense than that of membership. This
alone will save in most cases two or three
times the membership fee of ?5. 00.
The completeness and propriety with
which the headquarters will be main
tained for state dignity and convenience
depends upon the support the people of
Oregon give to it. The project has re
ceived the indorsement of the state com
mission and we bespeak for it generous
aid from our people. Everyone who
thinks of visiting Chicago will join in it
without hesitation as supplyinga great
necessity to himself, and even those who
will not go can see in it the advertise
ment of the resources, industries and
products of the state.
HIS MOTHER'S BIBLE.
An Exciting Sport Which Is Pursued In
Mr. Kirk Munroe describes in the
Cosmopolitan a canoe trip in company
with two young Seminole Indians, Mie
cochee and Kowika, who were engaged
in their regular occupation of hunting
alligators for their hides. The canoe
was a duffout, made by Miccochee him
self out of a huge Cyprus log. The trio
made camp late in the afternoon, and
after awhile Mr. Munroe discovered
what he had not before suspected that
the hunting was to be done at night.
Darkness had hardly fallen before
the bellowing of alligators was heard
a sound much like the roar of an angry
bull. Miccochee listened with evident
satisfaction. "Allapatta plenty. Me
catch 'em, Uncah!"
We had killed five of the monsters
when we turned our prow up stream.
Miccochee wielded his push pole, from
the stern, Kowika sat in the middle of
the canoe, while I, with jack light on
my head and rifle in hand, occupied the
position of honor in the bow.
The alligators had ceased their mut
te rings and I had begun to think that
we had killed or frightened them all.
Just then I was startled by a slight
motion on the bank but a few yards
away. At the same instant two coals
of fire gleamed through the blackness.
What could they be? I was about to
speak, when a sharp "hist" from be
hind told me that the moment for
action had come. Taking a hasty aim
at one of the lurid coals, I fired.
The report of the rifle was followed
by such a wild rush into the water, such
whirling and splashing, such showers
of spray and bloody foam that it was
as if a small cyclone had been dropped
from the heavens into that quiet spot.
Little Kowika screamed in his excite
ment, but Miccochee only expressed'his
displeasure at my bad shot by mutter
ing: "Ho-le-wa-gus! Heap bad!"

The Book on Which President Cleveland
Took the Oatli of Office.
Among the relics stored away in the
clerk's office of the supreme court of the
United States, writes a Washington cor
respondent of the Philadelphia Times,
is a handsome morocco-covered Bible of
larjre octavo size. It is the Bible that
was purchased eight years ago to ad
minister the oath of office to President
Cleveland at his inauguration on March
4. It had been the invariable custom
before the inauguration of Mr. Cleve
land to purchase a Bible for use at the
inauguration ceremony and to present
this interesting memento afterward to
some member of the president's family.
Following this custom, the clerk pur
chased a Bible to use in the inaugura
tion of President Cleveland, but Mr.
Cleveland notified the committee of ar
rangements of the senate that he wished
to take the oath on the Bible given to
him by his mother when, as a young
man, he started out in the world to
make his fortune. The committee nat
urally respected this sentiment of the
president-elect and so Mr. Cleveland
took the oath on his mother's Bible. It
was a small book, morocco bound and
gilt-edged. So far as is known here,
Mr. Cleveland still has the book, and in
the belief that .it will be used at the
coming ceremony the clerk of the su
preme court has not purchased a
Bible to be used on that occasion. It
was planned four years ago to use the
Bible purchased in 1885 at the ceremony
of 1889; but after considering the mat
ter the clerk determined to purchase
another Bible for Mr. Harrison.

The Gate City of the Inland Empire is situated at the head
of navigation on the Middle Columbia, and is a thriving, pros
' ITS TERRITORY.
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agricultural
and grazing country, its trade reaching as far south as Summer
Lake, a distance of over two hundred miles.
The Largest Wool Market.
The rich grazing country along the eastern slope of the Cas
cades furnishes pasture for thousands of sheep, the wool from
which finds market here.
The Dalles is the largest original wool shipping point in
America, about 5,000,000 pounds being shipped last year.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia, yielding
this year a revenue of thousands of dollars, which will be more
than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickitat valley find market
here, and the country south and east has this year filled the
warehouses, and all available storage places to overflowing with
It is the richest city of its size on the coast and . its money is
scattered over and is being used to develop more farming country
than is tributary to any other city in Eastern Oregon.
Its situation is unsurpassed. Its climate delightful. Its pos
sibilities incalculable. Its resources unlimited. And on these
corner stones she stands.
