L. G. Frailer and family returned
from the East last Saturday, all in
excellent health, and having enjoyed
their trip very much.
Mr. Frailer says it is a mistake for
any one to belittle the World's fair,
because it is an immense thing, and
contains material enough for months
of close observation. He says graft
ers are not nearly so much in evi
dence at the fair as the people have
been led to believe, though quite often
-visitors are required to pay more
than what they get is really worth.
The general business conditions
throughout Missouri and Kansas, so
far as Mr. Frazler could judge, both
from observation and Inquiry, are
very good. The principal setback of
tbe season has been the extremely wet
weather, which has done a great
amount of damage in both states.
Nevertheless, a large per cent of
the crop acreage is In fine condition,
and across both states there is a pro
fusion of vegetation that Is very re
freshing to the eye, and which speaks
volumes for the fertility of the soIL
He saw thousands of acres of corn
standing from 12 to 15 feet high. In
fact, outside of the relatively small
area swept by the floods the crops
are immense.
A Pleasonton banker informed Mr.
pose. This anords a pretty good
market for "local fats" and takes the
wire edge off the distress within the
radius mentioned.
Active Building Operations Necessi

the new west Bide school will start
tomorrow morning. The excavating
will be finished today. Architect C.
E. Troutman stated this morning that
work on the other schools would be
rushed as rapidly as possible.
The volume of building work has
increased so rapidly In Pendleton dur
ing the past few months that Mr.
Troutman has been obliged to add an
other artist to his force. The new
architect Is Lewis M. Dole, of Port
land. He is expected to arrive In
Pendleton tomorrow.

Much Damage Done to the Brownfield-J
Matlock Building and Nowlln Res
idence. Hoodlum boys last Sunday perpe
trated contemptible and destructive
vandalism upon the Brownfield apart
ment house and Nowlln's new resi
dence, upon Willow street, and there
can be nothing more certain than
than something will be doing when
the reprobates are discovered.
Entrance was made to the Nowlln
place by cutting a hole in a screen
door, by which the latch was reached
and unfastened. Inside things were
generally upset and Interfered with.
Paint cans were upturned and the
contents allowed to spread out over
the floor. Then paint was smeared
over the wainscoting, which had been
prepared for painting, and it was so
disfigured that the removal and re
building of a portion of the wainscot
ing is necessary, as the smeared col
ors could not possibly be removed.
At the Brownfield property the
principal damage done was to smear
paint over the newly papered walls

Escaped From City Jail, But Didn't
Escape a Fine.
When Roland Soper awoke last
evening and found himself in the city
Jail, his first thought was of liberty,
and he managed to unfasten the door
and walked away. He forgot at the
time, however, that $5.25 belonging
to mm was in the possession of the
ponce department.
This morning the desire to recover
his money was stronger than the price
of liberty, and he made his way to
the police court to demand his prop
"You are charged with resisting an
officer and with being drunk." said
Judge Fitz Gerald by way of greeting
as aoper entered. "I guess I'm
