seen anything of fifteen arc lights, which

Dr. Gertrude French is encouraging,
saying that hopes are now entertained
for her recovery. Her case is a very
serious one, and night and day physi
cians and nurses worked over her in the
effort to stimulate the action of her
heart, which the disease had so taken
hold of as to make it almost impossible
to keep life in the patient. It is sincere
ly hoped that ehe will now recover. The
shock of her illness has been extremely
hard for her parents to bear, coming as
it did so soon after their bereavement
over the death of Mrs. Condon.

An Kodless Chain.
An endless chain of letters has been
started in Aetoria with the object in
view of building a bicycle path to the
beach. The purpose ia to run over the
new Young's hay bridge and from there
keep a portion of the road in such con
dition, by planking or otherwise, that
it will be joesible to make the run from
i Astoria to the beach.
This tremendous and endless chain
system of raising money for different
"projects is becoming an endless nuisance.
Many who receive these letters, which
require that the person who receives
them send ten cents to the secretary and
make three or lour copies of the original
document, which is in turn to be for
warded to as many of their friends,
would much rather pay many times
that amount than be annoyed or annoy
their neighbors with the correspondence.
The objects for which they are sent are
often the very beet and most charitable,
and by slighting them, one person can
put a quietus on the whole project,
which of course they hesitate to do.
Were this system used only for assisting
charitable purposes it would not become
the annoyance that it now is; but the
varied purposes for which it is used will
soon' necessitate the emplojing of a
private secretary to keep op the corres

OREGON HAY GOES OUT.
California Dai Taken Nearly 18,000
Previous to last April no Oregon hay
went to the California market. The
movement was rather from California to
Oregon, but not enough was carried to
justify the Southern Pacific Company
in making any special rate for it, the
regular commodity rate applying. Since
April, between eleven and twelve thous
and tons of Oregon bay have gone to
California and the trade shows no signs
The drought in California made an
extra demand for hay to feed to stock
during the summer'. That gave the rail
road company an opportunity to make
a rate that would encourage 'shipments
from Oregon, and also from the East.
From the Missouri river the rate was
made $10 per ton, and from Oregon $5 to
San Francisco and Central California,
and $S to Los Angeles. That brought
hay to California from both directions,
but Oregon enjoyed the preference as to
price. In the matter of quality the
California market was partial to the hay
from Kansas and Nebraska, probably
on the theory that a product that would
stand shipment so far must be better
than that grown nearer home.
Oregon, having opened a market in
California, is expected to retain a foot
ing there, and it is likely to supply all
the hay California imports hereafter.
Oregon. has bad the advantage in the
matter of freight charges at all times

Two Pointed Questions Answered.
What is the use of making a better
article than your competitor it you can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the puhlie will buy only the better,
so that whilo our profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know
your make is the best?
If both articles are brought prominent
ly before the public both are certain to
be tried and the public will very quickly
pass judgment on them and use only the
