Many Inquiries About
Oregon Are Answered
lames Hannaford, vice president
of the Northern Pacific, pro
nounced the Oregon exhibit to be
the best and most comprehensive
of the Minneapolis show.
Thousands of these persons re
gistered at the shows that might
learn more of Oregon through
having literature sent them, with
the view of coming to Oregon In
the near future. The Oregon
exhibit at both shows was in
tensely practical, and for that
reason proved of great value to
the prospective settler.
Intense interest was manifest
ed in the Oregon state exhibits
at the Minneapolis and Chicago
Land Shows, according to Un
report of O. E. Freytag of Ore-
iron Citv. director in charere. and
many inquirers were formed of rived here this week from out
points of interest to them by side points where they have been

The Dollar Mark's Origin
Many people like to think that
the American dollar-mark is a
corruption of the symbol "U. S. "
Others have held to the old his
torian's idea that it is a replica
of the pillars of Hercules. Prof.
Parian Cajorio of Colorado, has
knocked all these pleasing fancies
in the head by proving, with an
cient manuscripts, that the dol
lar mark is really a corruption
of the old Spanish abbreviation
for peso a dollar.
Prof. Cajori looked over thous
ands of manuscripts to get at
his facts. He started with the
idea that the dollar mark was an
abbreviation of the word "dol
lar," but, as he says, "we had
to throw our idea overboard as a
Then he got the clue. When
our Spanish colonist first wrote
the word "pesos" one of which
is about, a dollar, they spelled it
out in full. Then it got down to
"pa." When it was written
hurriedly, the "p" and the "s"
were superimposed, as he shows
from ancient writings, and grad
ually the dollar mark came into
use the p was written over
Says Prof. Cajeri: r'lt has been
established that the dollar mark
is the lineal decendent of the
Spanish abbreviation "p" for
"pesos," that the change from
the llorescent "ps" to $ was
made about 177.r by Knglish
Americans who came in business
relations with the Spanish-Americans
and that the earliest print
ed dollar mark dates back to the

subject for the dav being "Croat

Mrs. .1. W. iiiggx read a very in
teresting paper on the "Develop
ment of Periodical Literature"
in which it presented the his
tory of the best known publica
tions dwelling particularly on
the great American periodicals
and the gradual development and
progress made in such literature
during the 19th Century. Each
member responded to roll call
with the name of some well

Inasmuch as we are expected to compete with large
Eastern Houses, who sell for cash only, we are obliged to
stick pretty close to the cash system, for in no other way
can prices of houses who see your money before they
wrap up the goods, be met on equal terms. Now, you
have a big department store right at home and the rate
is much less from Burns than from Chicago. For instance
a 10 lb. package will cost $1.10 from Chicago, while from
Burns it cost you but 14 cts. Quite a difference, ain't it?

Among the many educational
matters discussed by the county
superintendents during their re
cent session at Salem in the ca
pacity of State Board of Examin
ers, none was entered into with
more interest than the school
children's industrial contest
work. With one or two excep
tions each superintendent had in
troduced the work in his county,
and was gratified with the re
sults. In almost every county
where school fairs where held last
year lor uie Hirst time, tne ex
hibits were beyond the expecta
tion of those in charge. The dis
cussion was not as to whether
the movement is a good one, and
one to be continued. All were
agreed and enthuiastic on that
point. It was simply a matter
of discussing method how to
conduct the work to get the best
results. There was a unanimous
sentiment in favoring a later
date for the State Fair this year
in order to make it possible to
hold the local contests first, and
then send the best of the exhibits
to Salem. Some expressed their
intention of sending their whole
juvenile county exhibit to the
State fair, and unless there is a
mjghty sidetracking of enthus
iasm, the I' air Hoard will need to
buijd a roof over one corner of
the State Fair grounds to take
care of the children's depart
ment. Many of the superintendents
in their industrial work this year
are going to specialize on poultry,
believing that it is a good thing
for every child to have the care .
of some sort of animal life and
that nothing is more profitable
nor practical to begin with than
poultry. It is claimed by some
of the superintendents that it is
easily possible to meet the entire j
cost of our public school system
by the increase in the production
of poultry and eggs by the school
children of the State.
