Some oi these object to having the paper dis continued at the time of expiration f their subscription. For the benefit of these, and for other reason, we have concluded to discontinue subscriptions only when notified to do so. All pcr ; son paying when subscribing, or pay ing in advance, will have the benefit of the dollar rate. 'But u they do not pay for six months, the rate will be $1.25 a year. Hereafter we will send the pa per to all .responsible persons who- or der it, though they may not send the noney, wuh the understanding that they arc to pay $1.25 a year, in case they let the subscription account run over fix months. In order that there may be no misunderstanding, we will keep this notice standing at this place in the paper. , SUBSCRIBERS DESIRING THE AD- diets of their paper changed must stmt the name of their former postoftlce-, a well km of the office to which they wish the paper changed.

I "Line! an - uijiui! uif iraviiuir, !,r State Fair will thfe year approach .nearer tbi accomplishment of a com prehensive exhibit of all the indus tries of Oregon than has been at tained In any previous year, and eon sequently will be of more value both to the visitors and to the. exhibitors. The directors are making earnest ef forts to bring aboot such a result, and the prospects are their work will be crowned wHb success. It Is desirable that every county in the state sliould have a good exhibit. Hie people of all the counties are taxefr to provide tin appropriation for tike Fair, and therefore all of them should take ad vantage of It to make their resources awl their Industries known through out . the commonwealth; Certainly they will have only ttpetuseBei to blank; if they do not. for a special apitca! has k-en made to tliem to profit by the exceptloneil advantages provided for such exhibits this year. Albany Herald. : If the period of fair w-eat her holds out continuously, or nearly so. the farmers of Oregon will be through with their harvesting in time to take their vacations at the Fair. They are sum? to do so in larger number than heretofore, on account of the fact hat It has gone forth that the Fa il ls to be a great success, and the ad ditional fact that the farmers . are much more generally Interested thau heretofore iu diversified agriculture, hicludlug the raising of more and bet- a ' . . . " ' , ter tock. They win want to s?e tn specluiens ou exhibition, and to study the breeds and their good ioiuts. In this way the State Fair will be worth to the couitnonweallli treasury vastly more than the annual nimropri- atlon that goes towards the payment of premiums on agricultural products.

T'ortland has been sitting jvlth folded bands. while Seattle,! Taeoma, Spokane and other places have pushed, out for new fields. Their people have pulled . to gether for the common good. Nearly every rich wan In Portland is afraid some other wan way mate some money If ehe does any tiring for. the good of the cRr and "country. : Tlie time has come for a general advance' went all ahng the line in Oregon. There are great opportunities in sight Not only the people of Portland, but the people f the entire state,, should unite and pull together for the gen eral good. Oregon should invite new capital and new enterprises and peo pie. and pusJt forward. and take ad vantage of the ; markets and opportu nities that are? in reach." Who will take the lead? Portland idiould an swer this question, for to tlitit t-ify would accrue the greatest benefits. The Spokesman-Review- was. asked to estimate the number . of iersoun who would be : given . employment if (he j'Utire available water power-of the Siokane falls were put to use. A few years ago.
