C- Portland, Or., August 3, 1904.
V. Markillie, Mount Hood Hotel, ; " . ""' -
Hood River, Oregon.' ,t
Dear Sir: You know the work we have been doing ' in Portland. Follow suit
Sweep everything from your shaves and counters at HALF. PRICES. Reserve noth
ing. Let the men of Hood River have the same benefits we have given our friends here.
Our sales have been the largest in the history of the clothing trade in Oregon, and we
want you to duplicate our Portland record in Hood River. You know the monster pur
chases we have made and which must be paid for within the next 30 'days. To meet
these obligations WE -MUST HAVE MONEY, and that you may , do your share
toward raising the required sum, throw values to the dogs, and give the peo
ple of your 'community such bargains as they never heard of before.
Make everything half price. Don't take a cent more for anything than half
what you have been selljug for up to this time. Don't spare anything not a
thing in the store! - - - - .
We shipped you last evening fifty cases of our choicest garments. - These were never
unpacked after receipt here, so you will be careful to compare contents with invoice.
Every suit of clothes in this lot is up to the minute in make and style. .
There is no better anywhere but don't spare them. Let them go at the half price
figure. - ?mn PAUL STRAIN.
Mr. Straiii ' Is the Boss
What he says Goes. There is no Appeal from his
Judgment, and although the Sacrifice will be unpar-
alied in the Clothing trade of this city, as told to do
. - ., . . .
BEGIN THE SLAUGHTER!
In this connection we are aware that competitors will smile at the statement that
we are cutting our former stupendously low prices in two parts and selling goods now
at one-half the figures we havebeen charging since the arrival of these goods-i-prices
not greater than one-third to one-half local merchants asked for garments and Men's
Furnishings of similar quality and that they will endeavor to persuade our friends
that our promise in this inrtance will not be made good. We therefore make' this , offer
to every reader of these words: If you will come to our store, examine our price marks,'
examine the goods also, and find that this advertisement is not Absolutely True in
every syllable, word or sentence, then we will present every such caller with a choice; of
any suit of clothes, overcoat, top coat or any other article or thing in "our establish- ,1
ment free of Every Charge Whatever. And if any merchant doubts these figures or ':,
disputes the statements herein contained, and if such merchant will come to' our store, -investigate
for himself, and conclude in his own mind from what he has discovered, and -"so
inform us that these statements are not true, then we Will pay SUCh merchant
$50 for his trouble. .
Were is True ,
We are compelled to raise more money this month than we have in sight, hence we
have resorted to this expedient to accomplish this. It is a forced put. MR.
, STRAIN-cannot help himself, and as he has sold enough of this Colorado
vr stock, anyway, to more than pay for it, he will not be a great loser, even at this tro
' " mendous sacrifice. But for the fact that the money he received for these goods was
immediately invested in another stock, which will arrive during the month, he would '
not have been compelled to make this slaughter. But he is making it, and every
man on the North Pacific Coast ought to take advantage of his predicament. ',' ,
All mail orders received will be filled at these prices. , '. ' - . . '..,.:-;"
The Clothing is suitable for any season of the year, but there is a large quantity of
heavy weights most appropriate for fall and winter wear. Men may now secure a first
class suit of heavy winter garments, sold everywhere at $25 to $35, for one-quarter "
' their worth at this sale. t ; . . ' : !
. . Come therefore' and get your share of these bonanza offerings. ; Come while they
''.'. may be had. Don't wait till Mr. Strain has changed his mind, and countermanded his
,1, . half-price order. 1
It is a Wonderful Opportunity.
You will never have a Chance like1 this again. It is like find-
ing Clothes to get Garments at such Prices.-; .:

This is the date wt by thn assrKriation
at a meeting o( tlie nienibeiHat the rooms
of the Commercial club laat Saturday
afternoon. The meeting wnn the larg
est of the kind ever held, and indicates
a determinati'Mt to make the fair surpasi
anything in that line ever pefore nuiler
, taken by the people of Hood River, and
they have held some very successful
Mr. Smith called the meetirg to or
der, and the former secretary secured
a record of the proceedings. In taking
the chair Mr. Smith remarked that the
meeting wbb very encouraging. He
said he remembered the time when Mr.
8lingerland and himself were, the only
two men to respond to the published
notice of a fair meeting. They went
ahead and held a fair just the same.
As to the finances of the association
Mr. Smith said there was something
like $27 left on his hands by tlm former
treasurer, Mr. Slingerland. At the time
of the Grand Army encampment, the
general committee of the encampment
finding alout $50 worth of lumber on
their handa offered the fair association
. the lumber for $20. Mr. Smith took it
upon himself to buy the lumber, saying
if the association did not rare to take it
t. J. Oessling reported a balance of
$7.05 In the treasure and on motion the
association agreed to take the lumder
Mr. Smith had purchased.
Mr. Smith thought it well to decide
whether or not the farmers wished to
hold a fair. When the Ore
gon Press association adjourned at
Salem last year they did so with the
understanding that they were to meet
this year at Hood River, at the time of
the biennial fruit fair here. Further
more Mr. Hmith said he never knew
he apples of the valley to be making a
better showing, and everything indicat
ed that if a fair was undertaken it would
bv the biggehikind of a success.
On motion of Mr. Baker it was decid
ed to hold the fair.
f The date for the fair was the next
consideration, and on motion the 13th,
14th ml 15tli of October were selected
a the time most suitable, considering
the condition of the weather at the time
of the year, the condition of the fruit
and the approach of the busy season
when every one in Hood River will be
busy picking and packing the immense
crop of apples.
On motion of Mr. Baker it was then de
cided to pines the control of the fair in
the hands of a ways and means com
mittee of 20 people. On motion of H.
F. Davidton, President Smith, (i. J.
Oessling and Cfhris Dethman were ap
pointed to select this ways and means
There were some suggestions ai to the
place for holding the display and the
meeting adjourned. Mr. Smith said he
had given the matter tome little thought
and he lelieved that the plan of booths,
as is followed at the street carnivals in
Portland and The Dalles, would be just
the thing, and the matter of expense for
a building woidd lie greatly lessened.
Mr. Davidson thought this should be1
left with the committee, as was done.
The members of the ways and means
committee for the fruit fair are :

Can't Vote for Parker.
Amos Underwood the old pioneer and
Indian fighter from the north side of
the Columbia, was in town Monday.
Uncle Amos is an old time democrat
and one of the kind you can bet on, but
he says he wont vote for Parker. If it
were not for the state election at the
s.".me lime he says he wouldn't go near
the poles on election day.. There is too
much gold standard and "Ea.slernism"
about the gentlemen from Eopus to
suit the plain, western democracy of
Amoi I nder wood. Miamania county
used to be democratic, but Mr. Under
wood says be doesn't believe the demo
cratic nominee for the "presidency will
poll single vote in the whole county
this fall. Amos was formly a strong,
supporter and admirer of . Senator
Turner, hit. he says from what he can
learn, Tu'n r swung onto the Parker
band waguii at St. Loui with a little
too much alacrity to please-o'l Amos,
and he has an idea he would like some
one else nominated for Governor - of
Washington than the Bpokane million

THEM TO OREGON
J. F. Peeler of West Miller street,
Mason City Iowa, writes to the Glacier
"We intend to leave for Hood River
in about six weeks, in fact, there will be
several families of ub that leave at the
same time. The Hood River Glacier
has made a good many converts in this
part of the country, and as soon as bus
iness matters can be attended to we in
tend to leave about September 15.
Do you know of a small house that
can be rented until we decide what we
intend to do?"

that of the 25ih, when the minimum
was 50 an I the maximum 99, giving a
range of 43 degr.'ea.
The precipiiaiion, while it was very
light, .19 ol an inch for the entire month,

.07 ; that of 1902 was .38; 1901, a trace.
