Style, service, satisfaction, are the threo triumphs of the "K. N. & F. Co." spring and summer clothing, worn by the fashion leaders of the world. A. M. Williams & Co. sell them exclusively m The Dalles. 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 should bo followed with regard to most of the others. A little leveling now as the ground is in condition to pack, would leave the gtreots in good condition all summer. 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 that make a newspaper reporter sorry that he isn't the son of an Astor or adopted by a rich widow or something f that kind. A close canvass of the town failed to reveal anything that would make an item. There was neith er irths,deaths,nor marriages, no runa ways, no lectures, no bbows, no nothing. The grand opening at Tease & MayB laet night drew, as usual, a largo crowd, fhe Dalles orchestra furnished the mu sic, and there was a steady stream of ad miring people passing throughthe many departments until after 9 o'clock. The wjiioniole roporter was thee of course, but the giddy young wretoli came home with a knowledge of whoas there, of Pretty costumes, handsme faces and uiytite forms, but he did not know any thing about the store, he improvements or the display. He as sent back this coming and what )(a saw there will be l0nd in another column. Tho possibilities of mining in South jrn Oregon is Illustrated by an incident "iat occurred this week.

It Wan Loncled. 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 the bottom of which is a small disc. Tho cigar touching this releaees the spring and a short chisel-shaped blade does the rest. Tom Kelly was expatiat 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 tonished look on Tom's face, and the tip of his little finger was not where it be longed. Tom is certain the hole must have grown since the machine was brought here, aB he has tried the same experiment dozens of times before; but in the language of the Orient, "he never will again." l't'KSONAL MENTION.

A GREAT IMPROVEMENT. reuse & lUayp Ite-Arrango nud Beautify 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 stock. 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; Bieyeles, Bieyele Sundries, fishing Taekle, Steel Hanges. Also a Scow-load of DRY FIR WOOD JUST RECEIVED AT MAIER& BENTON'S 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 exceptionally light. 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 may be.
