supplement, Showing the famous Shos

superior to Niagara iu many respects,
though carrying smaller volume of
water. These monthly supplements
will continue a feature of the maga

Pacific Northwest. The illustrations
of the number are devoted to the cities
of East Portland and Albina, and the

much valuable descriptive matter. In
