MILDIE : MATERIALS
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.

Captain Richard Hoyt, the well known
steamboat man, was taken to the insane
asylum from Portland Monday.' His
hallucination is that he has been
awarded a contract for building a light
house at Bandon, and be keeps ordering
material for it. It is hoped by his num
erous friends that the attack may prove
but temporary and that his reason may
be soon restored. ' He was one of the
best and most popular captains on the
river. ' '

The country is being oyer-run with
peddlers, to the damage of everybody
concerned, except themselves. The
parties who buy of them are generally
more or less duped, as the stocks of
goods peddled are generally old-fash
ioned shop-worn stuff that is dear at
any price, and the merchants who haye
good stocks have their trade curtailed.
As none of these pay taxes it is highly
proper that their business should be
licensed, so that they are placed more
nearly under the burdens that our jner
chants have to bear. - A tax of not less
than flOO a quarter should be levied
upon them, and in the meanwhile those
who have goods to purchase had better
patronize their local merchantswhetber
of The Dalles or otherwise. Your home
merchant will generally do better by
you than anybody, and besides he, and
not the peddler, is the man who carries
you when you need it. ...

Senator Elklns Visits Us..
Senator Elkine, accompanied by big
wife and son, arrived on the Regulator
yesterday evening. The party came as
far as the Cascades in their private car,
arriving there at 11 o'clock. As the sen
ator was secretary of war at the time the
contract was let for the completion of
the locks under the contract system,
and as be had urged the adoption of that
plan, he was much interested' in the
work, which he examined very thor
oughly. He is very practical, and at
first glance expressed astonishment at
the stupendous character of the work.
He pronounced it the finest piece of
work in the United State", but added:
'The trouble is that the work has
been done on too large a scale. The
canal should have been made smaller,
and had this been done, it would have
been completed years ago. As it'is I am
convinced that next spring will see the
work completed and realize that it means
great deal to the people of Eastern
Commenting upon the boat railway
proposition, he said:
"I am opposed to it, for at the best it
is but an experiment, but I am heartily
in favor o a canal. Not such a canal as
you will have at the Cascades, bnt a
canal that will pass boats of 500 or 600
tons, big enough to do the business of
the country for years to come. The
Columbia is a grand river and I become
bewildered in contemplating the future
of the great basin which it drains
Whoever named it the Inland Empire
had a proper conception of its magni
tude. I believe a small canal will open
the river and do it more cheaply and
much more expeditiously tban the rail
way, and besides it would save the cost
of operating probably $100,000 a year.
The party were the guests of Mr. I. N,
Day, who took them for a drive over the
city. Many of our citizens called to pay
their respects to the senator and many
more would have done bo had they
known-positively of his coming.' r The
senator's special ear was attached to the
passenger last night, and the party left
for Salt Lake, delighted with their trip
up the Columbia and firm friends to all
measures pertaining to the speedy open
ing of our great waterway. ." r x
certain that everybody in The Dalles
shares their joy and rey rices with them
that they have been permitted to travel
so far along the pathway or life together,
and unite in hoping that yet another
mile-stone,., the golden . one, may ... be
passed ere either be taken.

; Irony Of Fate. .
Profeesor Bischof, a prominent physi
cian, was vehemently opposed to the ad
mission of female students at the Uni
versity of St. Petersburg and in general
to any concession made to the woman's
rights advocates. He argued that it was
wrong to put a woman on on equal foot
ing with a man as far as mental capa
city was concerned, and gave as a reason
for this statement that the average
weight of a woman's brain (three pounds
four ounces) was three and a half ounces
less than that of a man.
He died not long ago and upon an
autopsy being performed bis brain was
weighed. How odd that its weight was
even a triflo less than the average claim
ed for the sex be despiced. St. Peters
