Bargains alwa3's bring results. That has been our experience.
"What we propose now is a bargain sale which shall be general
throughout our store. The cream of the season's goods are here
at prices way below the ordinary, and if quality is the test of
cheapness you'll surely find these goods cheap. Our store is very
interesting just now- and very busy. But it will be busier later
on. The most leisurely, comfortable holiday shopping is to be
done right now.

Oregon comes a Bellevue paper which
says : "Joe and Gus Bonn left last night
for their home at The Dalles, Or. We
understand that Joe will return here at
no distantday but that is his business."
Now, that sounds something like an in
sinuation, which it is the duty of Dalles
young laaies to terret out. if 'twere
policy so to do we would say for their
comfort, "don't believe all you read in a
newspaper;" but bis avowal of constancy

center window contains dress skirts,
jackets, ribbons, etc., so arranged as to
show to the best advantage the articles
displayed, which are beautifnl and at

is fortunate in securing the services, of a
clerk with such artistic taste.

A Sweet Story.
"Sweets to the Sweet," ia generally
the maxim ; but there are exceptions
to the rule at A. Keller's, where are
sweets for everyone. If you think
Christmas isn't coming, just step into
his confectionery store and Bee the ad
vence agents. Theie are candy canes
galore, fringing every available place,
and decorations for Christmas trees in
every possible contrivance. The beauty
of these is that they are cheaper than
they have ever been from one to ten
cents a pieca. Beside you find candies
that'll make your mouth water, and if
you want to please your young lady
friend on Christmas, send her a box of

'The following remarks , of the Ore
gonian concerning the wishes of the late
Archbishop Gross are very apropos, and
meet with the sanction of every person
who has given the matter serious
The clause in the will of the late Arch
bishop Gross directing that no flowers
be used at bis funeral, that the funeral
be as simple as possible, and that the
remains be burjed in an inexpensive
wooden coffin, is a distinct, though gen
tle rebuke to funeral extravagance and
display wnich is frequently most con
spicuous where it can least be afforded.
The unselfishness and love for hu
manity which always characterized the
acts of the good " archbishop were not
only felt daring his lifetime, but their
fruits are to be seen when his hand of
charity is forever closed, and teach a
lesson w hich should be heeded by all.
That his wealth might assist in carrying
on the work . he had commenced he
'eaves it to the church and its charitable
institutions, requesting at the same time
that the extravagance often displayed at
funerals be omitted in his case.
Not that anyone would- advocate a
carelessness in the offices of love toward
those for whom the last kind acts are
performed; nor would the satisfaction of
giving them the very best be denied
where it may be done without robbing
those who are to survive. In the first
anguish of grief the thought comes, to
rich and poor alike, that the best and
richest are not good enough, and the
feeling ia as strong in one case as the
other. But how often have we seen the
very bread taken from the mouths of
children that remain in order to pur
chase the most expensive of caskets, the
most elaborate of robes in which to lay
to rest the little one who is taken away.
The love ia not less strong when it occurs
to those who are unable to provide the
best that something plain - and neat,
with less expenditure, is as adequate to
express the love, as the more gorgeous
pall and shroud ; while the ones who are
left may be spared many an aching
heart and comfortless hour by reaping
the benefits derived from being less ex
travagant along this line.
Ti8 not the coatly gifts and display of
wealth which is most appreciated dur
ing the lifetime; but the lore manifested
by the giver and which the gift conveys.
Therefore, would it not be far. better
were those who are straggling for an ex
istence, barely able to keep the wolf
from the door, to pause at the death bed
of their loved ones and consider these
matters; robbing not the living for that
dead. During their life time we dressed
them as our circumstances would permit.
Shall we not follow the same rule as we
provide the laet robe, wt ich is far lest
needed by them and is wholly inade
quate to warm the frozen blood, and
quicken the pulte, no matter how costly
it mav be. . .
