DO YOU KNOW
you are wearing stockings, that have been burned? It's a
fact All black hosiery is dyed by what is known as the
."oxidized" process, which means nothing less than a "burn
ing" process. That's exactly why even the best stockings
you can buy often "go wrong."
Armor Plate Hosiery
is not dyed by this burning
process. The manufactur
ers have been working for
years trying to produce a
dye that would not burn
the hosiery, and they have
just perfected such a dye
which they have called "Harms Naut Dye." It harms
neither the hosiery nor the skin. The original strength of
every yarn in Armor Plate Hosiery is retained. Hence the
wearers have the assurance of the most serviceable and long
lived hosiery ever manufactured.
For the Entire Family V .
Armor Plate Hosiery is just as good for the woman who ex
. pects service from a light-weight gauze stocking as it is for

MONEY IN TIMBER, LOGGED OFF
AND FRUIT LAND RATHER
THAN CITY LOTS.
Seattle, March 11. There Is more
money being Invested today in tim
ber, fruit lands aid logged-off lands
In Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and
British Columbia than ever before ln
the history of the Northwest. One
reason advanced for this by lecal
capitalists Is that such investments
offer greater inducements la the
way of furtune making than does
Investments In city property. There
was a time (when men with money
tor good speculations turned to such
cities as Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane,
Portland and other large cities of
the Northwest, but now prices have
reached that state where there Is
no longer any chance to speculate.
The man with the big fortune can
continue to buy city realty. Im
prove It and make money, but he
with a small fortune, which It is
hoped to double or tiiple, must look
elsewhere than the cities if he .wants
to be successful. Shrewd business
men. with an eye to the future do
not hesitate to say that the fortunes
of the future will come from the tim
ber, logged-off lands and fruit lands
of the Northwest During the past
few weeks a number of rich Seattle
men have Invested heavily ln Ore
gon and Idaho lands and they say
they are more than pleased with
their Investments. It is the Inten
tion to cut up this land Into small
farms and sell them to settlers. A
big rush is expected tibia spring,
for the railroads have been exten
sively exploiting the country and
are offering special inducements to
iettlers. Thousands of new people
are expected to locate in the three
states within the next year. Every
3tate will get its share. The Hill
roads declare that the next few
months will witness a .wonderful
rush from the east and middle west
to the Pacific Northwest This in
formation 4s based upon the heavy
inquiry for rates made to eastern
agents of th Northern Pacific and
Commercial bodies throughout the
Northwest realizing the Importance
of representation on the coming ex
cursion to California over the Ore
gon and Washington and the South
ern Pacific have taken steps to send
men on this trip well supplied with
literature to advertise their particu
lar section throughout California,
and a part of Oregon.
From the number of Inquiries re
ceived by the railroad officials it Is
evident a great many commercial
clubs and chambers of commerce ln
Washington, Idaho and British Co
lumbia will send representatives.
Commercial bodies ln Seattle and
Tacoma have endorsed the trip and
It Is believed the business men's
midwinter excursion to California
will result in much valuable adver
tising for the Northwest generally.

Traffic arrangements are being

traffic interchange will be estab

Hogs broke all former records ln
the Portland market late last week
when the remarkable price of $11 a
hundred pounds, live weight, was
paid by local packers for the best
Eastern Oregon porkers. This price
was not only the highest ever paid
here ln the memory of packers but
leads the whole United States for
the last half century at least.
'or about a week Portland has had
the distinction of leading the whole
United States In being the highest
priced hog market. When hogs went
to $10.10 and $10.25 last week, It was
thought the limit had been reached
but the jump to $11 shows the
