Will soon annex the adjoining store room, at present occupied by Williams' Drug
Store. '
For the next 30 days we will slaughter prices in our Gents' Furnishing
Department, that we may not be handicapped by any surplus stock when we
commence to make the coming change. Our business has long ago outgrown our
present quarters, but circumstances over which we had no control has forced us to
do the best we could with the limited space, but now we are fully determined to
furnish our Hood River customers with the most modern, convenient, well
regulated Store in Eastern Oregon. We must, however, reduce stock quickly
as January and February selling will be somewhat interrupted by the change, and
we propose to do now what we usually do then; thus giving our friends the
matchless opportunity of buying their wintes supplies at manufacturers'
COSt. All odd lines must go.
. Hats usually $3.60 now $2.50.
1 Underwear at cost.
Golf Shirts, Dress Shirts, Clothing, Overcoats,
Odd Shoes, Sweaters, etc., etc.

Grateful Tramp Keeps HU Word.
Five hundred shares of mining stock
in a mine in Grant county, which mav
develop into a fortune for the holder,
is the reward given to William Guion, a
former O. It. & N. lireman, by a tramp
for a ride of 75 miles on his engine, says
the East Oregonian.
About three years ago William Guion,
formerly of Cayuee station, at that time
a fireman on freight engine No. 140
running between LaUrande and Uma
tilla, while in Pendleton one evening on
an east-bound train, was approached by
a man in rough working clothes, who
asked to be allowed to shovel coal for
him over the Hlue Mountains as he
wanted to get to Baker City as soon as
he could, where he had property.
Carrying a "coal passer'' on freight
engines over the mountains was not an
unusual custom at that time, and Guion
took the man on his engine with him.
The tramp was needed to get coal down
from the back end of the tender when it
became scarce, toward the top of the
mountain.and when the fireman became
tired on the long grade between Pendle
ton and Kamels.
This man was not a regular type of
tramp but was an intelligent and indus
trious Gorman, who had been in Port
land hospital for some time and had been
released dead broke, and was working
his way back to Baker City from which
point he would go into Grant county,
where he said he had some mining
claims which promised to be rich.
He told Guion about his mines and
promised to remember him for his kind
ness, but every man who was carried by
a fireman told a similar. hardluck story,
and promised the same remuneration
when they should became rich.
When the train reached LaGrande,
alwut 3 o'clock in the morning, Guion
took his newly-found friend to the res
taurant and gave him his breakfast, and
