week when they heard of the disaster
which had overtaken the great Pacific
International Live Stock Exposition.

Portland caught fire from a burning
shingle mil), and in a half hour was
reduced to ashes.
This splendid plant, the largest and
most conveniently arranged and
equipped structure of Its kind in the
world, covered over 10 acres of land.
It cost approxmately $500.000. How­

will be held November 1 to 8, inclu­

assnrsne'es are coming from every
quarter of the compass of aid and
entries of livestock. He says:
“The exposition will be bigger and
better than ever. Naturally, all oar
plans have not been completed, bnt

and progress.”

amphitheater probably will be made
somewhst larger, bnt. the general
construction will be the same aa be­
fore. It seems that it cannot be
