The spring run of hobos has begun in
Baker City. During the winter there
was hardly a tramp seen in that town,
but last Friday about 25 came in on the
different trains, and the jail was filled
with thorn. Some of them will be put
to work on the streets.
"Kid" Bufllngton, who was released
on bonds in Mitchell precinct, in Crook
county, charged with robbing Charles
Wellnitz, has been turned over to the
authorites by his bondBinen, and will
probably have to remain in custody un
til the May term of circuit court.
Some excellent work is being done on
Union street, and it ia an example that

Last week George B. Henton came in
to Kllonsburg from the Swauk mines,
bringing with him the result of a week's
work in the Elliot claim, on Williams
creek, amounting to .$4G0. Ho had 25
ounces; the laigest nuggot weighed .$35,
while others weighed .$20, $15, $10, and
eo on down to a cap box full of fine gold.
'This has been another of those days

Down at tiie Umatilla House bar is a
patent machine for clipping the ends off
cigars. It winds up with a key, being
operated by a strong spring. You stick
the end of the cigar in a small hole, at

Tho cigar touching this releaees the
spring and a short chisel-shaped blade

ing on the beauties of the machine this
morning, when a by-stander suggested
that it was dangerous, saying that if a
fellow put his finger in there it would
get snapped off. "But," said Tom,
"your finger won't go in, Bee?" and he
jabbed his little finger in the hole.
There was a click of the machine, an as

of his little finger was not where it be

A GREAT IMPROVEMENT.

Their 111k Store llotiins.
Last winter Pease & Mays, feeling the
inadequateness of their store rooms to
accommodate their business, determined
to remedy defects in that line, and at
onceproceeded to put their plans in exe
cution. Their grocery department had
always been cramped for room, and the
back half of the store had been gloomy.
Both these drawbacks were to bo over
come, and how well it haa been done
one glance into the big building will tell.
They first leased the room adjoining
them, 25x120 f eet, and cut an immense
archway through the brick wall, con
necting it with the main store. Then
an immense skylight was put in at the
back end of the building, which gives
abundant light. The shelving was all
re-modeled, the counters and wood work
all gone over, and then when the car
penters got through, the big rooms were
turned over to that artistic decorator, D.
W. Vause, who certainly sustained his
reputation as an artist in the work.
The walls and ceilings were covered with
daintily-tinted paper, with harmonizing
trimmings, all light. The paneling and
counter work all being in white oak
graining, the combination of white oak
and white proving very harmonious.
The arrangement of the departments
is perfect. First comes the grocery de
partment, located on the west side of the
building, neatly shelved and countered,
with abundant room aud everything ar
ranged so systematically that any article
can be gotten instantly.
Adjoining the grocery department
comes the clothing and gents' furnishing
goods, running the full length ot the
building, the clotiiing being displayed
on large tables, and the hats occupying
the shelves. In connection with this is
a fine dressing room, with triple adjust
able mirrors that permit a fellow to see
himself as othors see him. The big sky
light opens into the back end of this de
partment, and over it a portion of the
second floor ia used for storing reserve
Next comes tho dress goods depart
ment, where one of the finest stocks kept
in any store this Bide of the Cascades
may be found. Here again are hand
some counters, triple mirrors, and
through the center of the aisle a row of
handsome low and narrow show cases
for the display of laces, ribbons and
trimmings. The ehelvlng ia relieved by
narrow mirrors, and the ends of the
same by double mirrors full length. Near
the front door Ib a handsome plate glass
show case, resting on the floor and con
taining a beautiful display of laces, etc.
The shoe department ia in the rear of
the dreaa goodi department, and it also
shows the good taate of the decorator
and the practiced eye of the buelneaa
man in its convenient arrangements.
Back of this yet are the warerooins,
fronting on the railroad, where goods'
are unloaded directly from the care,
The offices are located at the back of
the clothing and grocery department,
commanding a view of both, and belnj;

almost under the skylight, are well
lighted. They are beautifully finished
in white oak panels and pure white.
Speaking tubes connect the offices with
each of the departments and the ware
house, and in a few days n new cash reg
ister system will be in operation. The
great improvement that we note is the
light. Before, tho back end of tho store
waB dark, but the whole building is now
During tho summer a plant will bo
put in for heating the building by steam,
and this will be in operation by the time
it ib needed.
Pease & MayB are always energetic,
enlarging and changing their rooms and
stocks to keep pace with the times; but
this time they have not only met every
demand for their present needs, but
have apparently built to meet tho de
mands of the future for a long time, no
matter how pressing those demands
