WE ARE FORCED OUT
OF OUR BUILDING.
READ THIS, THEN ACT, ITS YOUR OPPORTUNITY.
If you will read our "ad" in Friday's Observer last week you would see why
we have to move. We could not afford to pay $5 per day rent and then give our
landlord all our fixtures, etc., besides, which would make our rent cost, us all of
$8.00 to $10.00 per day, so we have concluded to vacate the place as soon as possible.
As we have all our Spring goods in we must reduce our stock as we may have to
take smaller quarters temporarily until our new building is ready for us.
So Our Loss will be Our Customers Gain
and from the way people have responded since last Saturday we evidently mean
just what we say. We have sold a great many Suits. You
will see at a glance that our goods are not a common grade,
they are finely tailored models which at a glance show superior
workmanship in this point our clothes differ from all other

goods and our space here will not permit us to quote prices
but if you will take the trouble to come in we certainly can
show you the goods and tell you the prices of which will
absolutely convince you that we have the stock and prices.
We would just add a few words more about our Hat and Shoe Stock.
We have bought more Hats than all the other stores in Dallas put together
and you know our stock is new and fresh as we have only been here one season.
We have all the late shapes in Hats also the different colors that are used and
when you buy a hat of us you can depend on it that it is right,both prices and style.
Our Shoe Stock is complete and new. We handle the

Ihe Lewis and Clark Exposition
Commission is taking steps to get out
suitable literature for distribution at
the St. Louis Fair and broadcast over
the country in advertisement of the
state, and particularly the Lewis aud
Clark Fair, to be held in Portland in
1905. The first step in this direction
was to compile a treatise on the forest
wealth of Oregon, and in this matter
they have succeeded admirably. Un
der the direction of the, commission,
Edmund P. Sheldon, who is probably
one of the best-informed men in the
State of Oregon on the forest question,

The printing, which was done in the
State Printing Office, and the binding
or this book has just been completed,
and the first installment will be for
warded to the commission in Portland
within a few days. It is composed of
32 pages, excluding the cover pages,
the first eight of which are devoted to
a treatise upon the climate, Oregon's
forests as a resource, and a brief his
tory of Oregon and Oregon's forests,
while the balance of the book is devot
ed to a list of the forest trees and larg
er shrubs of Oregon, and the pamph
let contains several full-page half-tone
cuts of mammoth Oregon trees and
other interesting scenes of the forest,
while the description of the different
kinds of wood grown in this state and
their respective uses is not only valu
able as to the information which it
sheds in a general way, but also as a
future reference book,
Different authorities are now en
gaged in the preparation and compil
ation of similar treatises upon the
agricultural, horticultural, mineral
and other resources of Oregon, which
will be condensed in small pamphlets
like that treating of the forest wealth,
and these, too, will be ready for dis
tribution at the St. Louis Fair.

J. S. Cooper, Mayor of Independence,
and Polk County's probable Repre
sentative in the next Legislature, has
been in Portland for the past few days,
and will leave for home tomorrow
morning. Mr. Cooper is an authority
on Polk County politics, having lived
in Independence for many years.
Humors from up the Valley say
that, while Mr. Cooper is not an
avowed candidate for the Legislature,
he would not be averse to representing
Polk in Salem next "Winter, and would
not decline the nomination if it were
offered. He has considerable strength
in his part of the state, and stands a
good chance of being selected for the
"Politics are very active up my
way," said Mr. Cooper, "especially in
the Congressional race. Both Her
mann and Harris have emissaries in
the field who are doing their utmost
for their backers. Polk has nine dele
gates in the convention, and those are
worth looking out for. The primaries
will be held on the 7tb, and the county
convention two days later, and then's
when the fun will commence." Port
We have not received any report as
yet of sales of mohair in Oregon.
large share of the clip of the state is
going into pools and buyers naturally
do not wish to make any definite state
ments as to prices until the auction
sales of these pools commence. Port
land buyers say that Eastern quota
tions would at present iustifv onlv
about 30 cents for good Oregon mohair,
but as to what will be paid thev are
noncommittal beyond emphatic pre
dictions that the price will not- be so
high in Oregon as last year. Most of
the pools will be sold in the next two
eeks. As stated before one can only
guess at the probable price, but
averaging up stateinents'of buyers and
growers would give about 33 cents as
the probable price for the Dallas pool.
It may easily vary from this two or
three cents. Reports from California,
ew Mexico and Texas show that half-
vear growths of mohair are being sold
at from 20 to 30 cents according to
quality and location, the highest
prices being in the Uvalde country in
lexas where there are many fine goats,
It is said that the Sanford Mills are
sending notices to Angora men, ad
vising them to hold back their spring

few months, owing to the com
paratively low price at which it could
be obtained. Rural Northwest.

Miss McMunn's Graphic Description
of How The Votes Are Won
Now that the political pot is boiling,
the wife's coffee pot grows cold while
her liege lord talks of election. Just
a common son of Adam is an im
portant personage now, for it doesn't
matter how much hayseed adheres to
his hair, his favor is much courted.
See those fine gentlemen around him?
They have never seen him before, but
they have grown suddenly fond of
him, and have brought him some good
cigars and a snake bite remedy. Ah I
the farmer is bitter already, for. see.
he wipes his mouth with the back of
They ask about the farmer's family,
being careful to call the old maid the
girl" and the kid the "young lady"
and at the house they have asked the
tottering mother if her "father" is in.
The farmer is plowing and his hands
are very muddy, but they joyously
grasp his horny fist and one man
plows while the other entertains the
farmer. The plowman makes a crook
ed furrow, but ho praises the soil, so
the farmer is pleased. The men see
the family cow that yielded un her
lacteal fluid to Noah but they exclaim,
"What a fine young cow," and they
are sure that the rooster with but one
tail feather must be an imported fowl.
They do not care if there is no roast
for dinner, for they are very fond of
bacon especially such fine bacon as
is set before them. They have never
seen such fine pieced quilts as the wife
makes, and the husband allows them
to peep at his "seed" potatoes which
are pronounced "very flno indeed."
They admiro the daughter's sofa
cushions and listen entranced while
the kid sings "Yankee Doodle."
When they are gone the farmer takes
two cards from his overalls pocket
and spells out the names with his fore
finger and tells tho daughter to put
them away in the upper bureau drawer
until election day. After the farmer
has gone to bed, the daughter blush
ingly takes tho cards and writes
"Missus" before each name and won
ders which card belongs to which
man. She hopes that the pretty name
belongs to tho slender, dark eyed one
but then sho remembers that it was
tho blonde one who had gold in his
front tooth, and such sweet perfumery
on his handkerchief. Miss iMia

High Pressure Days.
Men and women alike have to work
incessantly with brain and hand to
hold their own nowadays. Never
were the demands of business, the
wants of the family, the requirements
of society, more numerous. The first
effect of the praiseworthy effort to keep
up with all these things is commonly
seen in a weakened or debilitated con
dition of the nervous system, which
results in dyspepsia, defective nutri
tion of both body and brain, and in
extreme cases in complete nervous
prostration. It i3 clearly seen that
what is needed is what will sustain
the system, give vigor and tone to the
nerves, and keep the digestive and
assimilative functions healthy and
active. From personl knowledge, we
can recommend Hood's Sarsanarilla
for this purpose. It acts on all the
vital organs, builds up the whole sys
tem, and fits men and women for these

Few New Hop Yards.
Hop growers in Oregon have not all
lost their heads because of two or three
successive years of. high prices for
hops. A firm which has a largo hop
farm in Polk county, Oregon, recently
told a newspaper reporter that they
wero planting no hops this year and
do not expect to plant any more until
in tho natural round the prices are
low again. They will then plant and
by the time the new yards are in full
bearing they will expect a return of
good prices. Rural Northwest.
