lescoped into the first-class cars of the
fat section, killing a number of passen-
ra. Among the killed are three
Hests. The number of killed is now
aced at 13, injured 34.

feather Crop' Bulletin No 15 of the
Oregon State Weather Service for
Weather General light rainfall on
uly 4 and 5, being heaviest on the 4th ;
e total amount which fell varied from
he-half inch in portions of Umatilla
j)unty to 0.10 of an inch at The Dalles,
lid in Baker county. The temperature
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
was much lower than in the preceding
week. On the morning of the 6th frost
nearly occurred south of the Blue
mountains, where the lowest tempera
ture was 36 deg. The maximum tem
peratures ranged from 72 to 84 deg., and
the minimun ranged from 48 to 54 deg.,
except south of the Blue mountains,
where it was from 36 to 52 deg. About
the average amount of sunshine pre
vailed. The winds were southerly on
several days, ahd their velocity through
out the week was less than in the prev
Crops The rains, though light, were
great benefit. The benefit was princi
pally in the help to cause the grain
to be more plump; it helped the filling,
but caused little or no extra growth to
the straw. The reports' from Wasco and
Sherman counties are more encouraging,
and fair yields are now anticipated from
these two counties. Discouraging le
ports continue from Gilliam and Mor
row counties, and it is doubtful if one
third as much as the crop of last year
will be yielded. In Umatilla country
grain that was properly put in is in good
oondition. One correspondent, wbo has
1700 acres in wheat, expects 45 Dushel to
the acre; fields surrounding will not
yield over 20 bushels to the acre, the
difference being due to the manner of
plowiog and seeding. The crop of
Umatilla county will hardly be over one
fourth as much as it waa last year, In
the Grand Ronde valley good crops are
the rule; this year they are poor; fall
wheat is especially poor, and will hardly
yield over 15 or 20 bushels to the acre.'
Spring grain is not half eo good, and
much spring grain will only be G for
hay. In other Eastern Oregon counties
similiar grain conditions exist.
The bay crop is light, except that
which is irrigated. The hay is short in
length and thin on the ground. The
fruit prospects continue to be encourag
ing. A large yield is now expected.
Wheat harvest .has commenced in a
few localities of the Columbia river
valley; harvest will not be general until
about the 15th.
Rain will not help the grain and bay
crop; the present conditions show what
the harvest will be, and they show pros
pects below the average.
The latter part of this week will be
cooler; no rain is probable.
The chief of the weather bureau,
Washington, D. C, has directed Mr. B.
S. Pague to proceed to San Francisco
and assume charge of the weather office
in that city for the next 30 days. Mr.
S. M. Blanford will be in charge of the
office in Portland until Mr. Pague re
turns. Portland, Or., July 8, 1895.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other disease
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and prescrib
ed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment, pro
nounced it incurable. . Science has
proven catarrh to be a constitutional
disease and therefore requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,
Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken inter
nally in doses from 10 drops to a tea
spoonful. It acta directly on the blood
mucous surfaces of the system. They
offer one hundred dollars for any case it
fails to cure. Send for circulars and tes

Kimball's Methods a Menace
Chicago Musical News.
The following advertisement has been
given a prominent position in the daily
papers of Washington, D. C, and has
been printed in the Chicago Musical
News and the American Hebrew News,
of Portland. We desire to call the atten
tion of the public to it.
The unfairness of the assertions it con
tains needs no emphasizing, for they
will appear at once to the sense of right
inherent in every legitimate dealer in
pianos all over the country :
Next Tuesdav will be a special bar
gain day on pianos at our store. We
have found some grand bargains in new
Upright Pianos (not the celebrated Kim
ball pianos), and propose to give the
public a chance to secure new pianos
next Tuesday at manufacturers' whole
The prices Tuesday next for these new
elegant Upright pianos will be only $149
and $159 each. Part time given if de
sired. Theae pianos will be on exhibit
at our store all day Monday, but no sales
will be made from this lot until Tuesday,
and will continue that day only.

The Kimball Company may regard
such methods as fair and honorable, but
they are open to the severest criticism in
attempting to destroy the piano trade in
Washington after many years of honor
able work to promote it.
The unfairness of the card lies in the
assertion that the pianos which are to
be sold at sacrificial prices are not made
by the Kimball company. Therein is
This whole scheme ia perpetrated to
give the Kimball pianos a position to
which their merits do not entitle them.
Although the Kimball advertisement de
clares these are not Kimball pianos

ball pianos know perfectly well that the
makers can afford to sell them at just
such ruinous prices as are quoted for

What is there in the Kimball piano to
justify this etepT Nothing.
The Kimball company make one of the
cheapest pianos in the United States.
And after the Kimball piano is made

The Kimball managers may consider
they have made a brilliant stroke, but
they are merely using gigantic power to
foist a cheap make on 'he market.
The question is also one of a broader
conception than mere local purview.
Such advertisements as these cut at the
root of the piano industry for they mis
lead private buyers.
We shall not let this subject stop here.
It is fraught with grave danger to the
entire trade, and, although the Kimball
company is composed of achrewd schem
ers, they may find they have far over
stepped the bounds of legitimate busi

San Fbancisco, July 9. The thieves
who stole the will of James G. Fair from
the office of the county clerk marie a big
mistake. Instead of procuring a large
reward, attorneys for the executors will
give the thieves nothing. There are two

original can be dispensed with;
