ter way to clean; a better way to take the dust from every fibre of
mattresses, portieres, rugs-from everything that gathers or absorbs it.
That's the secret of a clean house-a house free from dust--the secret
of the easy way to clean.

used in carrying into effect the provi- j

ways should be permanently con
structed and finished with hard sur
face. 1. The Columbia River Highway
from the Multnomah county line to
Astoria, Seaside, and south in Clatsop
county to the Tillamook county line.
Inasmuch as the counties of Columbia
and Clatsop have already expended
large sums of money in constructing
the said Columbia Highway through
said counties and in doing so have
practically exhausted their ability to
raise money by an issuance of county
bonds, the State Highway Commission
is hereby authorized, from the funds
arising under this act, in addition to
paving said highway, to use from said
funds sufficient to provide for the
preparation of said highway through
said counties for the paving thereof.
2. The Pacific Highway from Mult
nomah county line through Washington
county and Yamhill county by way of
Hillsboro, Forest Grove, McMinnville
to Dallas, Monmouth and Independ
ence, in Polk county ; to Corvallis and
Monroe in Benton county, and through
Eugene to the north line of Douglas
3. The Pacific Highway from the
Multnomah county line through Oswe
go, Oregon City and Canby in Clacka
mas county, thence through Marion
and Linn counties, to a junction with
the highway at Junction City.
4. Such portions of the Columbia
River Highway between the Multno
mah eounty line easterly through the
city of Hood River and Hood River
county and through The Dalles and
Wasco county. through Sherman
county, through Gilliam county, by
way of the town of Arlington and up
the Columbia River to the confluence
of the Umatilla River with the Colum
bia River, thence up the Umatilla
River through Hermiston, Stanfield,
Echo and Pendleton, and thence bv
requirements of I such route as shall be determined by
the State Highway Commission to La
Grande, Baker and to the Idaho line,
as the county' courts of the . various
counties affected shall agre to prepare
the road ready for paving. Provided,
that inasmuch as the county of Hood
River has raised by a bond issue and
expended upon said Columbia River
Highway practically its full constitu
tional limit, said Commission may ex
pend on said Columbia River Highway
in Huod River county, such portion of
the money arising under this act as it
may deem proper in preparing said
Columbia River Highway for paving.

have exempted that class of vehicles
from taxes?

Now, if the distinguished gentlemen
will come forward with one small
grain of practical argument why the
big sixes and big eights should have
free access to the roads at any and all
times, while the Sunday truck is
barred, we should be pleased to hear it.
I will say that I am as thoroughly in

and feel confident that 1 have rendered
the county as much free service as any
other man in the county. If 1 thought
