Cecil Ilhodes expresses tho desire "Hint

An Incident of the ceremonies at the

of tho American flag, which persistent
ly clung to n part of the work sur
rounding the stntue. "Tho flog stays
put," remarked Secretary Hay to tho
President In nn undertone, and tho
President, remembering his words.
smiled broadly. The French flag read
ily gave way the moment the ro;o was
pulled, and there were a number of
spectators who were Inclined to take
tho Incident as an omen.

observer of Sunday, but the fact that
once, nt least, he forgot the days of tbo

which tho duty In bond always seized

for continuation on the 4th of Juno (a
Saturday) he said toward the close of
the conference: 'I am going In to-morrow
to attack the batteries, to have

To tho Editor We have noticed in
your paper from time to tlmo, daring
tho prerent rearon, some extremely in
structive and interesting articles on
Binding Twine.
Permit us to add a few words today
witii special reference to our own influ
ence in this market. Tho "Farm Im
plement News," ieiuo of July 17, gives
the following prices of twine as tbo
prevailing Eastern prices to tbo deal
ers: Mill Itm-M... IS ccnta a round
Standard (iXMt) 13 rente a pound
Manila (-ft)...... . li4 centi a pound
Manila (SOO-fi) 13', cenla a found
Manila (G&l-ft) 17 ceuU a pound
While it is perfectly true and fair to
say that wo would bo justified in
charging one cent in advance of Eastern
prices for oar twine of Oregon manu
facture, that is, the tho price of freight
added to Eastern prices, as a matter of
fact, Pure Manila, Ited Clover Leaf
Brand, 650 feet, we are quoting to tlio
dealers under date of July 15 at 1U
cents per pound, or one cent below the
prices quoted foi Eastern goods.
Taking everything into account, it
seems reasonable and appropriate that
wo call attention to the fact that, al
though many people entertain the be
lief that we aro grinding monopolists,
demanding all we can possibly get for
twine, hero we are in the midtt of an
important and strenuous seat-on, offer
ing our goods at ono cent below the
prices Eastern dealers aro obliged to
pay. In other words, instead of being
an oppressor of the farmer, wo demon-
strate in a very practical manner that
we nre 'riend, and a good friend of
lbe Eoneral public, becaure, It any
Eastern twine is fold in this market,
we force the Eastern manufacturer to
take a less price for it than he docs in

UOVTEN, Coast Agents,
Don't neglect the slightest sign of irregularity but
see that you have at least one natural, easy movement
a day. Pills, salts and black draughts are dangerous
because they strain and weaken the bowels. What
you want is a mild but sure tonic laxative, that tones and
strengthens the bowels and stimulates their movements.
Such a laxative is CASCARETS, and when you
try them, you will find that it is the easiest thing in
the world to make and keep your bowels clean and
regular, strong and healthy. Sample box 10c, Month's
