DIRECT FROM OLD ENGLAND
We have just received the first direct import order of
ever brought to Pendleton. They are made of the finest Eng
lish bristles, with wax back (a new idea) which makes it im
possible fot the bristles to come out, as is the case with most
brushes. Every brush has our name and guarantee stamped
plainly on it, and is not only backed up by ourselves, buc the
manufacturers as well Should any brush prove unsatisfactory,
a new one will be given in its place or money refunded. They
come in hard, medium and soft bristles. Where can you buy a
brush like them for the money ? We are making a leader of
them at 35 CENTS.

THE PHILIPPINE PROBLEM.
hastened his death, at least It sad
dened his last days and squeezed out
about all the cheer that was in his
heart. His mental health was such
that he could not be hold responsible
for his acts for several years before
his death. He was sick In mind long
before his friends suspected it, and,
possibly, some of his performances
and short comings were due entirely
to this condition.
Admiral Sampson was a man of ex
cellent strongth of character, which
is shown by the fact that ho rose
from the lower ranks of life to one or
the 'highest positions In the gift of
the American people. Ho served his
country faithfully nnd death relieved
him of all afflictions and sorrows, of
which he had fully his share. He

"What the American people have

With the exception of the Ore-

least to such an extent that the ob

is the matter?
OUR DOMESTIC ANIMALS.
Census bulletin No. 15G purports to
give a more complete enumeration of
livestock In the United States than
was over before authorized by con
gress or undertaken by any census.
It says: "Not "only were previous
census reports deficient with respect
to the number of domestic animals on
range and In barns and enclosures
elsewhere, but the statistics of live
stock and t livestock values wore too
general to be of practical value to
either breeder or shipper." Tho
present report alms to be free from
theso defects and the statistics were
careiuuy collected with that end .u
animals on farms. Allowing tho same
average values, however, the animais
not on farms have a value ot io,
192.928. It is nrobable. therefore,
thnf tho ilnmnstlti animals in the
United States June 1. 1900, had
value of at least $3,200,000,000, of
which amount the value of animals
on farms and ranges constitute over
93 per cent.'
In this connection it is worth not
iiiK that the discussion of the re
sponsiblllty of the beef trust for the
high nrlco of beef has led to a carotin
calculation of the amount of beef
controlled by the trust, and while the
figures may not be strictly rellabl
they are at least interesting. The
National Provisioner says: "There
are killed in this country about
(KO.O00 cattle, including calves;
about C.000,000 of these are killed at
the fifty odd official or Inspected
aoattolrs. while about C.000,000 are
killed at the other 900 unofficial abat
tolrs and by farmers and small
slaughterers over this country. The
whole of the cattle and calves as well
ns the hogs and sheep slaughtered by
the Ave uackers in question are
killed at the government Inspected
abattoirs, and arc among the 0,000,-
000 head given out by tho secretary
of agriculture as our official slaugh
tor. Assuming that the Ave concerns
cited kill 3,000,000 of the total, there
remain the other 2.000.000 and the
G.000,000 of outside cattle 8,000,000
head in all to hit the market in
competition. With so much beef and
veal for competition tho outside con
cerns would kill any such combine if
If the figures stated are reliable it
is evident the complaint against the
trust is unfounded. It is further to
bo borne in mind that there was a
heavy shortage in the corn crop last
year, and consequently the farmers
did not raise so many beeves as usual
for the market. In any event there
is no reason for any excitement over
the matter. We have only to . con
serve the pastures of the west that
are now being ruined and provide for
irriKation of the arid lands to uro
vide us with a supply of beef ample
for our own needs and extensive ex
port for generations to come. San
