Cancer It curable, according to J. Nicb
olas Senn, who in a lecture on "The Pro
blem of Cancer," at the University of
Chicago, declared that fifty per cent of
the cases of cancer which are brought to
the attention of physician in the earii
egt stages maybe cured. Dr. Ben n ad
vocnted the establishment of some sort
of bureau to keep the public informed at
to the nature and curet of cancer at it
lone in some cities of Europe. Many of
the victimt of cancer prevent cures by
becoming despondent and keeping away
from good physicians. He laid: "If
the disease it detected in its early stages,
a cure may be affected," said Dr. Senu,
"but if it is allowed to go on to an ad
vanced stage nothing can be Jone."
A Chicago special ssys that extensive
improvements for the Harriman lines in

KrutUchnitt. He stated that orders for
0,000 fruit refrigerator cars have been

delivery of 1,200 a month .'rom January
1st. In addition to this orders have been
given for 10,000 cars of other kinds, mak
ing 1(1,000 cars to come. In addition or

"Jim" Hill has taken hundreds and
hundreds of people into North and
South Dakota and Montana, with their
household goods, farming tools and
stock, without one cent of cost to them.
In doing this "Jim" Hill probably
looked for returns later on, for he knew
that to make bis railroad pay he mutt
get good farmers living along the line.
and this be has done, and be is now
reaping bis reward, tor there is no better
paying railroad anywhere than the Great
Northern from Seattle to St. Paul.
"Jim" Hill may have hit faults, but be
is no niggard. He has done more for
the great Northwestern country than
any other man living and is entitled to
Ttiat tho scales In use in 75 per cent of
the groceries of Portland are inaccurate
and are designed to cheat the customer
from 10 to 20 per cent on every purchase
is the startling charge made by C. C.
Cluggett, agent for an opposition scale
company. He offered to prove hit con
tention before the Portland Retail Gro
cers' Association Monday night and a
demonstration wai planned. But Mr.
Cluggett was not allowed to proceed with
his investigation and before he was fair
ly started the association voted to dis
continue the test. The committee of
three members who were to be judges of
the test retired and brought in a verdict
that amounted to an expression of confi
dence in the scale, which stands on the
counters of most Portland groceries.
The demonstration proved a fiasco l-
cause the grocers voted not to let it pro
coed. Nearly all Portland grocers nse
me accused computing scale. Mr. Clag
gett snys that of the more than 4000 fig
urctonthis scale, over 20(H) are wrn
in that they are placed too does to the

Countv fruit Inspector. W. 11. Harris
Is now making preparation to rouse the
orcbardists of this county by calling
meetings in different sections of tbe
county. The inspector intenJs to have
all the orchards cleaned out this fall by
.11 the old fruit trees
which are too far infested by pests and
t. r,,in,n.r orchards sprayed. He
thinkt that by arousing tuflicieut inter
tit and enforcing the law at this time of
the year much good can be done. Last
spring the inspector did much cleaning
up but many orchards were too lar gone
Ha has called for meetings at Hillsboro
on November Id and at lieaverton on
November 17. Last week a similar
meeting was held at Reedville and the
result was plain a several old orchards
were cut down and fifty acres of new
orchards put in.
Here's a dream from our neighboring
city to the west, taken from a special
sent to the Teleeram of Monday: "A
peculiar incident happened last Satur
day when A. P. Venan, a piano tuner.
was en route from this place to Gale I
Creek in a buggy, teven miles distant.
When about half aay, where at a place
on the road It was' necessary to excavate
for some distance in the slJuhill to
make the road, Mr. Venen noticed near
the bank a peculiar-looking piece of
rock about five inches square, which he
picked up, and while he was examining
it, a stranger on horseback rode up and
asked to see the specimen. The Strang
er took from his pocket a small magni
tying glass and carefully examined ths
rock and said: "Where did you get
this quarts." Mr. Venen said : "I saw
it roll from the bluff as I was approach
ing." The stranger said "Mister, I will
give you $3 for it." Mr. Venen was not
reluctant in accepting it, and as be was
driving away he turned, looked back
and saw the purchaser of the specimen
near where the quarts was found mark
ing on the bottom board of a fence, lo
cating the place, no doubt. Mr. Venen
is now wondering whether two fools
met, or whether he has sold a gold
mine for 5."
II. V. Gates left last Saturday for a
few weeks' visit in San Francisco. Mrt.
Gates accompanied him to Portland, re
turning that evening. He was com
pelled to retnrn by the way of Hillsboro,
aa the California trains have to come
over the West side tracks on account of
the bridge being washed out on the main
line. He tried to get the train to stop
and let him on at Hillsboro, but none of
the California trains are permitted to
stop at this station. In conversation
with a Telegram operator .Mr. Gates
said: "San Francisco's recovery from
the great disaster of last April is neces
sarily very slow. In spite of the opti
mistic feeling displayed, there is a ner
vousness in regard to what the next
quake will be like. They aver that no
such shake as that in April will ever
come again. Piofessor Anderson, geo
logist, who hat been tracing the so-called
fault line through the Sante Crus moun
tains, says this fissure is plainly visible
for sixty miles. The land on the west
of this tault line travels northward In
one of these violent shakes, and tha
April quake sent it northward a dis
tance of eight feet. Fences crossing
this fault line plainly show the move
ment. The moving territory has gone
northward 150 feet since the coast range
mountains were formed along there,
and there is nothing to show that this
movement hat quit. It is this tear of
the future that is keeping outside money
irom coming into San Francisco. At
the same time, little can be done with
out outside money."

THE OVERLAND ROUTE.

Book Advertising the Beaver
According to Wm. McMurray, gener
al passenger agent of the Harriman lines
in this state, the O. It. A N. Co., the U.
P. Ry. and the M. P. Railway will re
double their efforts to advertise Oregon
In the east in the future. Notwithstand
ing the excellent advertising given this
state by the Harriman system in the
past, new feature, and new advertising
departments will be added to all tbe
railroad publications issued by the Har
riman people on the Pacific coast. Mr.
McMurray has secured a number of hunt
ing and range photographs from Maj.
Lee Moorehouse, and in the forthcoming
edition of The Road of a Thousand Won
ders, and The Overland Route, to be is
sued by the above named railway cor
porations, the bunting advantages of Ore
gon w ill be featured.
Thousands of eastern hunters come
west every year in search of good bunt
ing, and heretofore this feature of Ore
gon has been neglected in all advertising.
The Harriman people will now place this
feature prominently before the east and
photographs and views of hunting scenes
will have a prominent place in all forth
coming publications. Msj. Moorehouse,
bad a number of excellent mountain
scenes which Mr. McMurray found suit
able for tbe forthcoming books, and will
appear, with suitable reading matter In
the advertising publications.
In regard to tbe heavy travel over the
Harriman lines, Mr. McMurray says it is
unprecedented In the history of western
railroading. Every effort is being made
lo add greater facilities for handling this
travel. The Union Pacific is being prac
tically double tracked from end to end,
and several millions are being spent tor
tbe O. R. & N. and Short Line. Within
a short time tbe entire Harriman system
will be practically rebuilt, so vast are
