We carry a Complete Line of
to Wear Shoes?
We believe that shoes are the most satisfactory outer
covering for the feet, and contend that all gentlemen who
wish to appear well in polite society should wear them.
Now, the object of this dissertation is to call your atten
tion to our $2.50 Shoes for Men. Of course, other shoe
dealers have $2.50 Shoes ; some pay $12.00 per dozen for
them and others may pay $36.00. We think, however,
the dealers paying the latter price are limited. We do
not, neither do we pay the former. We claim our $2.50
Shoes to be the best that money can buy and that can be
sold at that price. : So sure are we of their good wearing
qualities that we say, "Take these Shoes, wear them,
and if they don't prove satisfactory, return them to us,
and your money will be refunded." If you are curious,
just see our Corner Window filled with these celebrated
$2.50 Shoes. If this won't satisfy you, step inside, pur
chase a pair and examine them at your leisure.

Charles Teio was brought up from, the
Cascade Locks yesterday afternoonby
Constable Trana, having been sentenced
to jail for ten days for using obscene and
abusive language. He had no sooner ar
rived than a telegram came to take him

state of Washington against S. A. Ander
son, who is accused of the murder of J.
A. Bull, near Stevenson, a few months
ago. Teio is said . to be one of the most

The work of grading around the bead
of the draw at the high trestle is progress
ing rapidly. The find of petrified trees is
much larger than was at first supposed.
They are found in the new cut in abun
dance and some large sections of the
trees have been taken out. The trees
were eyidently growing near the bluff,
when a flow of . lava came down over it
surrounding the trees and completely
sealing them np. The percolation of the
surface water charged with sand- and
quartz finally caused the petrifaction,
The waves of the lava where they over
flowed one another are plainly visible.

Bock Creek Shooting; Affray.
A telegram from: Arlington yesterday
"A shooting affray took place between
5 and 6 o'clock thia morning at the resi
dence of Harry Clay, on Rock creek,
twenty miles south of here, resulting in
the death of Henry Grider. Henry had
been working for Mr. Clay for about a
year, and had been looked upon as a
faithful, law-abiding citizen. Recently,
however, Grider seems to have gained
the impression that he owned the ranch,
and was going to run things to suit him
self. He had made threats of-killing
Air. (Jlay, and bad been carrying a re
volver for some time. This morning
the two men had some little dispute
about matters pertaining to the ranch;
and, without provocation, Grider drew
a revolver and fired . two shots at Clay
without effect. He was following him
up, with the evident intention of killing
him, when Mr. Clay ran into the honse
and procured a shotgun. He emptied
one of the barrels into Grider'a aide be
low the left arm, killing him instantly
He then gave himaejf up to the authori
ties. He will be given a preliminary
taial tomorrow morning. Mr. Clay baa
a fine ranch on Hock creek, and deals
extensively in stock, having recently
made a large shipment to Chicago. He
ia highly esteemed as a peaceable, law
abiding citizen. Although the shooting
on bia part was clearly in self-defense,
