It Is frequently remarked that the
Heading Itoom Is one of the greatest
conveniences established in the
towu. The privilege one has of
reading the dally papers, magazines
& etc, and for half price any of the
magazines can be bought. During
the past week many persons going
in the country have taken advantage
of this and quite a number of the
magazines aud weekly papers have
been disposed of.
The abseuse of many of the trus
tees from towu prevented a meeting

tion of a few bills to be considered
there was uothiug of importance to
To the Exposition.
Exposition Grouuds, June 20, 1SW5,
Do not wear uew shoes; have very
comfortable ones, if you want to
have a good time; eat your supper
or dluner six o'clock at the exposi
tion and remain for the music, the
magnificent electric lighting and the
Trail Shows at night also for the
fire works. Do all the outside
tractions in good weather, should It
rain you can do the buildings. Innes
famous band plays constantly this
month. The usual charge for ad
mission when It tours the country is ;
fl.00; here it is free to all. Other
popular bands will follow It next
month. Remember that Portland
can be seen at any time; the Expo
sition never again. Upon entering
the Exposition, purchase a program,
study all the exhibits carefully and
talk with those in charge; they de
sire you to do so. Become Instruct
ed, gain information, and then for
fun, for recreation, go to the Trail
every day or night. If you have not
rooms and accomodations positive
ly engaged, price and time of coming
fully agreed upon In writlug with
responsible parties, go to your rail
road ticket agent at your station as
long in advance of coming as pos
sible, he will save you time, trouble,
and possibly, the necessity of mov
ing your quarters after reaching
here. He is authorized by 1 lit rail
road company to locateyou through
the Portland Service Company here;
he can give you accommodations at
any price ut any hotel or private
house in the city, and will have yel
low capped boy meet you at the
train aud conduct you to your quar
ters, avoiding all chance of hold-up
or unfair treatment by the numerous
Irresponsible agents who surround
the railroad station. Do not expect
to see this great Fair thoroughly In
less than fifteen days; certainly ten
visits should be made to it. Do not
attempt, or make the usual mistake,
of doing too much the first few days.
Take one or two buildings lu each
day aud rest frequently. Visit the
United States Government building
at least three orfour times. Witness
the great life saving drill by Govern
ment Officials aud Seamen. Visit
the Trail amusements every day or
night, taking them all In, at least
once during your visit. With rare
exceptions, they are well worth the
price of admission. One of the most
original aud novel Is the Great Siber
ian Railroad Exhibit; It Is the larg
est and most costly and was most
popular at St. Louis the only large
one brought here, another Is The
Igerotes, from the Philippines wild
and naked savages, which will be
here in July. There are many
others worth seeing. Another Ex
position of this size Is not liable to
be held on .the Pacific Coast In the
next twenty years. Do not Insist
upon being located too near the Fair
Grounds; it is just as well to be
down town, the farther you are
.from the Fair, the more certain you
are of having a good comfortable
seat in the street car.
Don't bring much baggage, leave
your trunks at home If you can pos
sibly do without them. Register
your name and Portland address,
as well as your home address, at
your State building.
