Now Ready at the Up-to-Date Store of
FRANK A: CRAM'S.
The new goods were never so rich in appearance and were never so LOW
PHICED as they will be this season at this store. - Our cash system permits us
to take every advantage of the market as we sell for cash we are enabled to
buy With cash, thus insuring our increasing list of customers the best goods
produced for the least possible cost. We own every staple we will require this
this year at prices based on 8c cotton, and no matter who raises prices on these
goods we will not, as we have bought and paid for them at the lowest cash
price, and can sell cotton goods as cheap as most merchants can buy the same
goods for, all remarks to the contrary notwithstanding.
We are going after the biggest year's business we have ever known, and have
the prices to offer as inducement to you to help us swell the grand total.
Our expenses are the lowest that exist. Our goods are all
sold for spot cash. We buy everything for spot cash.
When we sell 12 pairs of shoes we get the money for every pair. Can we sell
the shoes cheaper than the man who sells 12 pairs and gets paid for 10 pairs,
and loses the price of two pairs?
Who pays for the two pairs that some one failed to pay for?
You are all too good business men and women not to know that those wjio
pay for the shoes they get, also pay for .the shoes which some one else got, but
did not pay for. The merchant can't loose it. His business must show interest
on the investment, so he must charge more for goods than the cash store sells
them for. A trial is convincing.

they tell wonderful tales of what their

with a 30-acre orchard claimed to have
cleared $800 per acre last year. Hood

of the notable events of the many suc
cessful affairs of the social season this
winter in Hood Kiver. Progressive whist
was the game of the evening, but every

were hand painted and cut to represent
slices of ''watermiliuu." As winning
scores were made peanuts were tied to
the card. Deftly draped about the
rooms were large red bandannas. When
the series of games was played, the card
tables were bunched and more bandan
nas appeared, UBed this time for covers.
The refreshments served were delicious.
After luncheon, the prizes were dis
tributed. With three of the ladies it
was a tie for first prize. The draw was
decided by cutting for the highest card,
ana tne award went to Mrs. Edward
Blythe. Mrs. Ralph Savage secured
second prize. With the eternal fitness

John Floyd Gerdes, sou of Mr. and
Mrs. John H. Gerdes of Hood River, -died
Friday, March 18, 1904. He was
born September 23, 1898. The little fel
low was a bright and lovable boy, and
through his long illness of more than
seven weeks, displayed the same sweet
and cheerful disposition that had made
him a favorite in his home and among
F'uneral services were conducted in
the U. B. church by Rev. J. T. Merrill,
assisted by Rev. H. C. Shaffer, Sunday
afternoon. Interment was made in the
K. of P. cemetery.

A precious one from us Is gone,
A voice we hived Is still:
A pliice Is vrchm In our home,
Which never can be tilled.
God In his wisdom has recMlled

And though the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in heaven.
The common council met in regular
session Monday night with Acting May
or J. E. Rand in the chair. Those pres
ent were: Mayor Rand; Conncitmen
Bailey, McDonald, Maves, Prat.her; Re
corder Nickelsen and Marshal Fraley.
Mayes from the committee on streets
and public property reported the condi
tion of the streets to be perhaps the worst
in the history of the city, but could sug
gest no remedy until the weather be
comes more propitious.
Bailey, of the health committee, re
ported an inspection of the city this
week and that he found the sanitary
condition of the municipality much like
that of Havana, Cuba, at the time of
American occupation. He seemed to
think we had too many Queen Anne
fronts with Mary Anne back yards for
a continuous felicitous state of health
in the city, that unless we accomplish a
renovation in certain quarters we are
liable to come up against everything
from measles to bubonic plague during
the heated term approaching. Like
his distinguished comrade from the
street committee, he could see no relief
until after the effects of the vernal equi
nox has worn off of the weather de
partment and Observer Beals begins to
disense sunshine instead of rain.

No. 1, is confined to his bed, and the
doctor says he will not be up for another
week. Mr. Bailey sprained the muscles
of his lower abdomen. He had been
complaining of a pain for a month of
more and had been treating himself for
indigestion. His physicians say the
constant strain of bearing on the brake
of his mail wagon helped to bring oft the
