A PROMISING OUTLOOK
For the New Railwny System-
Line to bo First Built.
From a general standioint tho success
of the single-rail and saddle-truck rail
way system is exceeding the expecta
tions of its best friends. Much interest
is taken, especially at Portland, in the
railroad revolution, and no less than
forty-two projHisals have Ih-oh received
by the construction company to build
roads. Some are vague and chimerical ,
projects, it is true, but others are clear
and practical. It is seen from the Ore
gon Express that the company has re
ceived and is considering a proposal to
iiuihl a motor hue to a junnt live miles
out in the suburbs of East Portland. ,
Then is little question but that this will
lie the tirst road constructed on the new !
plan. It is expected that it will be in j
operation March 15.
Dr. Mahana, who was here on his way
to Freewntor, is much pleased over the ,
present outlook. He has worked hard,
and feels that his reward is near at
hand. East Oregonian.

Tho City Hall.
At a meeting of the council on Wed
nesday evening of last week bids for the
construction of a city hall were ojrmhhI
and discussed. There was only one hid
in, that of Dion KWfo, $0,000 for the
construction of the building complete,
or $4,!)S0 partially complete. The mat
ter was discussed by the council and
upon a vote resulted in a tie, leaving it
for the mayor to decide, which he did,
in favor of the construction of the hall
partially complete for the pricw seeitled
in the bid.
The- itc for the building has I icon
selected and surveyed as heretofore
stated, but as yet no further prepara

That an annual fair could be held and
made a success in tins county there is
no question, if properly managed, and
while the coining fair is partially sup
ported by the state, and the appropria
tion will probably go to some other
county in this district next year, there
should lie an effort made to hold a fair
in this county each year.
A well-conducted fair in a county like
Union is not only a source of instruction
' aml amusement, hut ot vast lvnotit to
'vating the soil and other matters of
interest to yourselves and. tho commu
nity at large.
With such an incentive to further
progress and development, why can we
not go forward to (lie attainment of
something better in tho future than we
have accomplished in tho past? Why
can't we show to the world, that we can
improve on what we havo heretofore
done and make our fair this fall one

every man to put his shoulder to the

No articlo entering so generally into the food of every
"household is so generally and villainously adultered as bak
ing powder. These adulterated powders are shoved upon
the public with the greatest persistency.
Throbbing advertisements in newspapers claiming this
brand or that is absolutely pure, backed by analyses and cer
tificates, and vet thev are adulterated with ammonia or alum.

Amid all this fraud and deceit Dr. Price's Cream Bak
ing Powder stands almost alone battling for pure food and
continues to furnish a pure cream of tartar powder at almost
tho same cost to the people as the ammoina and ulura pow
ders are sold at, yet it costs much more to manufacture.
Dr. Price'n Cream Baking Powder is of tho highest
strength. It produces the largest amount of leavening power
attainable in a puro baking powder. It is free from ammo

The new Fashion Journals published',
by A. McDowell t Co., I West Nth

is abundantly shown on every 1 ige.
"I.n Mode" is the smallest of the t.iree,
and is intended for family use. I thus
many styles for children, and is only
$l.f0 per year, or 15 cents per ipy.
"I.u Mode do Paris" is an elegant jour
nal, filled with everything of the latest
style in Paris. This is a irreat favorite
i with the ladies who wish to keep posted
in the new styles us they come out.
"Album des Modes' is also a popular
Parisian publication, many ladies giv
ing it the preference. It is replete with
such styles as are patronized by tho
middle classes"., ts designs Iving neat
and plain, yet all of the richest charac
ter. These three monthly journals
claim to give the earlioL fashions, and
they are all printed in Paris. They
contain lessons in practical dressmaking,
which are of incomparable value and
easy to understand. "La Mode de Par
is" and the "Album des Modes" are
each $.'i.r0 per annum, or .'15 cents for a
single copy. Samples can 1h obtained
from the house at single copy prices if
there is any difficulty in obtaining them

Gratitude Still Extant.
Contrary to the In-liefof some pessi
mistic people, gratitude still exists in
the nineteenth century. An eccentric
old bachelor who died in Hamburg,
Germany, a few wveks ago, left among
other licqucsts 12,000 marks to a buxom
widow of his native city. "I leave this
money," he wrote in: explanation of his
gift, "as a proof otnty gratitude for your
refusal to beeomnjiiy wife thirty years
