guess. How many of the vessels built
and equipped in the yards are to bo
found to belong to the same class us
the battleships built in Russia with
wooden pegs instead of steel rivets
No one knows yet, mid no one prob
ably ever will.
The discovery that two high ollicinU
of the imperial shipyards, and possibly
a number of others, have systematical
ly been robbing the government for
year ha come us a terrible shock
to the (ierman people, who are psiud
of the proverbial honesty of their gov

contended that while fraud might be
found in America and b'tissia, all Ger
man government ollicers would always
be found to come up to the lioosevelt
standard, anil be aide to show a record

great success. Mrs. Russell com

very small way first there wero
nightly classes for mothers who were
allowed to bring their children and
who were instructed by Ir. Dora Hun
ting how to properly feed and clothe
their little ones. These classes imme
diately became very popular, but Mrs.
Russell, who wa often present in per
son, soon discovered that the mothers
themselves were a poorly fed as their
babies and to remedy this she changed
the night classes to day classes and
provided' a substantial dinner at a
price of .'I eeuts to those who could
afford to pay, while those who could
not were fed free of charge.
The mortality of children in Eng
land is appalling when compared with
that of America but thanks to the

widespread interest and caused many
men and women of wealth .to come

Salem. At a meeting of the build

the contract was let for enlargement
f the grandstand at the fair ground
so that it will accommodate an at
tendance of people. McFarlanc,
Uenison & McLaren, Salem con
tractors, were awarded tfie contract
for $3, '.too.

received the state fair this year will
be one of the grandest in the history
of the state. Nearly every county has
signified its intention to be on hand
wuji a large exhibit next fall.
1 rc board has already concluded to
move the administration oltices to an
ther location to make room for addi
tional county exhibits, and the build
ing committee is seriously contem

new structures. Resides the remodel

vcar will be much stronger than ii
former years. The large purses hunc
it Portland will attract many driv

lore visited tne Pacific Coast. The
two fairs, coming one following tin
other, will enable both to get the ful
beneht of the exhibitions, whichwil
be the best ever seen on the coast.
