Belgian hare must be great meat
producers. Supposing-a doe raises
five litters of eight young each, she
has forty to her credit. Presuming
half of this litter to be does, there
are four, and these bur, if all goes
well, will produce two litters by
the end of a year. Figuring on
the same basis they will produce
104. It may be presumed that
the second litter of the original doe
will produce once, and the basis of
figuring there will be sixty-two
more, making a total of lob hares,
as the increase of one dee. If they
are of good breeding they will weigh
eight pounds eoeh at the age of
eight months. Thus it will be
seen that three figures are required
to express the weight of the increase
of one doe in the course of a year.

To Wires and Sweethearts.
To home and friends, we bid farewell !
For distant shores we're leaving.
To sail npon the flowing sea
Where waves o'er waves are heaving.
Our bark will safely ride tke waves,
Will reach the golden strand;
The stars of hope will' guide us o'er
The Artie's frozen lands.
The Alaskan hills we will explore,
Its golden streams we'll pan,
And bring you nuggets from the shores
Untrodden yet by man.
We'll search the Arctic circle round,
And when our task is done
Bring Sack the treasures we have found
From the land of the midnight snn.
Bat, if perchance, too long we wait
And yet no news the while,
Don't think we're shipwrecked on the
Or on some frozen isle .
And when the bells on ChriBtmas day
Ring out their joyous sounds
Then think of loved ones far away
In Artie fetters bound.
Think of the long polanic gloom
And how we pass the time
While towering glaciers heavenward
Eternal and sublime.
Yet, we'll return, yon may depend,
It will never be our lot
To leave our bones where polar bear
Will eyer find the spot.
We'll bring a schooner load of gold
From the Alaskan bills ;
We'll doff oar boots and corduroys
Then you can put on frills.
We'll take a trip around the world
And through the foreign lands,
And wander neath Italian bowers
By lone arcadian strands. ,
And, now, farewell, till we return,
And with the gold we find
We'll build yon all palatial homes
On the Hudson or the Rhine.

GROCERY selling in a depart
ment store no longer attracts
attention because of its novelity,
but for the reason that the best of
food products costs less there than
the exclusive grocer charges.
This store is easily in the lead in
this respect. Our grocery de
partment is appreciated by well
posted buyers because it offers an
opportunity to supply the family
needs in this line at closest prices.

y properly organized and
rightly conducted men's furnish

one. Men no longer shun dry

attention of our customers to an
especially fine and complete line
of neckwear just opened.
SHOE value consists in wear,

of the three are lacking the foot

Every item offered below is proof of
the above assertion.
The quotations are only a very meagre representa
tion of the values which place this store unquestionably
in the lead. This store is crowded with the most com
plete and comprehensive stock of dry goods we have
ever shown. Every line was bought at close prices, and
the goods will be passed along to our customers at the
usual small margin of profit which has made this store
so successful and popular.

A store that relies solely on low prices to win and
hold trade is playing "a losing game." To win such
success as this store is winning it is necessary that the
low prices should represent goods of strictly reliable
quality. Every woman in this city who is posted on dry
goods, and who takes the time to compare goods and
prices will admit that our values are superior. We make
and hold customers by treating them right. We lead;
IF you want a stylish spring hat
for $3.00, just as good as the
$5.00 kind, come here. The only
difference is in the absence of the
name, and "what's in a name."
If you are willing to pay two dol
lars for a name, buy the five dol
lar hat If you want to pay only
for the hat, come here. Agent
for Kmgburry hats.
OUR glove stock is the best
patronized and most popular
in this vicinitr. because we make
a constant effort to show ft larger
lme, and offer better glove values
than anv other local dealer. It is
not easy to do a satisfactory kid
glove business. It requires long
exnerience. careful buying:, con
scientious selling and a willing
ness to be content with a small
profit We recognize all these
requirements and conform to them.
That's why Corvallis women can
get better gloves here for the
price than elsewhere.
BEFORE your spring gown
are fitted a new corset wil
be needed. That goes almost
without saying, for everyone
knows that an ill-fitting or worn
out corset spoils the fit of the
dress. Our corset woman can
help customers select the proper
model on that will improve tha
figure. Consult her and you will
be better satisfied with your cor
set, and the fit of your dresses.

we stocked up with cords of do

ton goods. We are now selling
these goods at just about what
other merchants have to pay for
them at present prices. Yon will
find this store a good place to sup
