Tho quiok and the dead the ad
vertiser mid the non-advertiser.
Representatives Herinunn and
Ellis voted against the passage of
the republican financial bill. What
is the Oregonian going to do about
it? This financial scheme iias been
one of its hobbies, and both of its
congressmen voted against it.- Ex.
Gen. Miles is probably a great
Boldior but he has evidently not
learned the first duties of a soldier
keep his mouth shut. He has
been talking too much and the war
department hinted that much in a
recent order. He is ftvideutly anx
ious to boom the business interests
of some ordnance factory.
The toiler and consumer reads
his paper in the evening; that sug
gests that there's a difierenoe be
tween the merchant who does not
advertise and one who floes. One
closes his store at night and its
dead till he gets back. Not so
with the advertiser. The news
paper starts in when he leaves off.
The New Ye? r's issue of the Ore

many particulars the most complete

NEARLY SPOILED THE BANQUET
Mtifortuns to a Vrlittar UudikI Confusion
at a IMnnsr tilvon to Stanley.
Mention of tho present visit of Henry
M. Stanley to this country brought
uhout the narration of an amusing,
though somewhatannoyinfr, incident in
connection with the American dimier'
that was given to the explorer in Loiv
don on his return from the Emin
Pasha relief expedition. The incident
also serves to show how a very slight
accident may precipitate confusion in a
dinner party. The American dinner to
Stanley was the idea of Henry 8. Well-
tome, an American business man of
London, who was not only a personal
friend of Stanley, but a member of the
firm of druggists who fitted out the
Erain Pasha relief expedition. Through
Mr. Wellcome s energy almost every
American in London subscribed for
tickets to the dinner, and on the night it
came off covers for over three hundred
people were laid in Evans' assembly-
rooms. One table, on a dais, was re
served for Stanley and the more dis
tinguished guests, and there were a
doien other long tables facing this one.
Mr. Wellcome attended personally to
the arrangement of the seats, and each
man who had subscribed to the plate

One special reason why local
papers are the best advertising
mediums for those who want to
reach the town and country is that
the women are bargain hunters.
They are also the closest readers of
local papers. Town papers are
made up of personal, local and
social matters. They are exten
sively, carefully and thoroughly
read by the ladies of the vicinity,
bath town and country. Those
who are using the local papers
have a distinct advantage over
those who do not.
It is not strange that there should
be a sympathetic feeling for Great
Britain developed in New York city.

suburb to London, and trouble ith

who hod expressed preference. Mr,
Wellcome gave minute attention to
these details, and, the first thing on the
morning of the night of the dinner, he
took his completed plan of the tables
and seats to a printer in order to have
the usual diagrams ready for the guid
ance oi tne diners in taking their places.
When the hour of 8:30, which had
been fixed for dinner, had arrived, the
E-00 hundred guests were assembled in
the reception-room. Stanley was there,
and so was Consul General John C.
New, who was to preside, and so were
tome of the most distinguished men in
England. But there was no diagrams
of the dining-room, and the reception
committe were anxiously waiting for
Mr. Wellcome to arrive with them. At
S: 35 o'clock Mr. Wellcome flew in, in his
business clothes, with a smndire of
printer's ink on his nose and more on '
his hands. Heagonizinly informed the
reception committee that the printers
uau piea tne type or the diagrams of the
tables at the last moment, and that

It may Beem an easy matter for 300
men to find their places at tables, when
their names are at their plates, but it
brought about so much confusion that
everybody was turned from the dining
room back to the reception-room and a
brilliant scheme was suggested. There
was the original list of the names of the
diners, with their respective places,
that Mr. Wellcome had rescued from
the printer, in the possession of the re
ception committee. The toastmaster
was stationed on a chair at the door of
the dining-room and instructed to read
the list of names, each man to pass out
nnu lane nis place at the table when
bis name was called. The toastmaster
was a "fine, big Englishman, with a
stentorian voice. He did as he was told.
"iew Consul (ieneral John C," he
shouted, and Mr. New went through
the door. "Stanlevrr-Henrv M" hol
lowed the toastmaster next. There
was a roar of laughter and that scheme
for seating the guests was Uropped.
Finally everybody went in again and
searched for his place and found it or
otherwise, as best he might. Several
of the guests designed for the principal
table were rescued from Inferior nosi-
tions below, and some ambitious ones
were degraded from the table of rank;
but the dinner went on merrily and
ended similarly, though itbeganan hour
later than the time it had been set for,
and all because of the accident to the
diagrams. N. Y. Telegram,

President Cleveland's second
administration will go down in his
tory as the greatest national debt
contracting era in America, since
the civil war. A third bond issue
of $ 100,000,GOO is now being nego
tiated with the banking firm of J.
P. Morgan & Co., of New York.
The syndicate agrees to furnish
11,500,000 ounces of gold, about
half of the sum first, and to have
the option of taking the other half
and deliver i per cent 30-year coin
bonds at about the same price paid
for the last issue of bonds. The
managers of the syndicate are to
rotain a commission of 1 per cent.
: It is expected the government will
make a formal acceptance of the
offer in a few days. Whenever the
government or nil individual per
mit their finances to get iu a bad

vage for the privlege of borrowing

' A woman who looks well to the ways
of her household should know hqw long,
under ordinary circumstances, certain
supplies, such as ten, colloe, butter,
sugar and coal should last. It is by
no means a propf of a niggardly house
wife to do so, but ft is her duty to liei
self and family to know what use in
