The da3rs of the Clearance Sale are fast drawing to a close, and you
should make hay while the sun shines. These rare bargains that we have been
presenting you are not to be sneezed at. Don't think because we are having a
few pleasant days that we are -going to have spring at once. One bright day
does not make springtime any more than one swallow makes a summer time.
We have offered you a full line of seasonable and serviceable goods. You have
shown your appreciation, as our fixtures will testify. We will add a couple of
lines to make the list complete. ,

by Deputy High

thirty-five charter members. The list

nquiry made at the war department
intofhe reports of the rapid increase in
tne numDer 01 smallpox cases among
the American soldiers at Manila, elicits
the assurance that the sick reports, sent
about twice a week by General Otis, ex
bibit tbe full extent of the dread disease
so far as the officials themselves know.
Tbe mortality rate is not excessive, but
of course, it is not denied that tbe
soldiers would be safer at home than
they are at present in Manila, Buffering
from homesickness which always follows
a protracted waiting without action.
Sir Henry Irving, the greatest trage
dian of the present time, is to visit
America next fall, and his tour will be
limited to twenty weeks, when he will
visit all tbe principal cities. He ia par,
ticularly anxious to play in San Fran
Cisco, but has not as yet made known
his intention regarding Tbe Dalles,
where he should have a week's engage
ment. He ia to produce "Robespierre"
as tlte feature of his repertoire. Wonder
if Henry Irving can dance the rag-time
or turn a somersault in the air. If ' he
fail in this line, the question is, how can
he attract an "up-to-date" audience?
In Olden Time
People overlooked the importance of
permanently beneficial effects and were
satisfied with tbe transient action ; but
now that it is generally known that

C. F. Kelley, a fisherman from Cascade
Locks has been in Portland, trying to
persuade Fish Commissioner McGuire
to place the limit at which no sturgeon
should be taken below 150 pounds.
''Last season," said Mr. Kelley, "I
caught a number of sturgeon in my
wheel weighing from 300 to 500 pounds.
Tbe 500-pounders brought me $40 each,
and I do not like tbe idea of throwing
such a fish back. Besides it is no easy
job to dump a 600-pound fish overboard.
It simply takes a derrick, the same as it
would to get a beef out of tbe wheel.
"There is no sale for small sturgeons
weighing 100 and 200, but the big ones
Mr. McGuire explained to him that
the big ones were more valuable to fish
culture than to a fish dealer, as one 500
pounder meant 1,000,000 eggs. The
sturgeon of the Columbia are becoming
very scarce, and Mr. McGufre thinks if
stringent protective' measures are not
passed, the big fish will soon be a
stranger in tbe waters of this state.
