HOW TO LOSE YOUR TAN,
FRECKLES OR WRINKLES
Wheat is dragging at f5 cents, with
but few buyers. Portland prices are
off from 2 to 3 cents on all kinds of
wheat. With the enormous crop through
out the country, the foreign demand
almost at a standstill and freights
higher than ever before, the market is
naturally depressed. Oats are dull, with
the highest quotations at 32 cents.
Candled No. 1 eggs are bringing 23
cents, and grocers are paying 22 and
23 cents in cash and 25 cents in trade.

Elihu Root Shys Hat
Into Political Ring
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 31. Political
sharps today saw in a powerful speech
delivered by Elihu Root befoTe the Con
stitutional convention in support of the
short ballot, the virtual shying of his
hat into the Republican presidential
Root's speech was regarded as one
of the greatest efforts of his career.
He displayed a strong progressive view
point in returning the government into
the hands of the people an ! bitterly at
tacked tho system which has made pos
sible the ex'istenco of "invisible gov
ernment" through political . bosses. In
support of the proposal for the short
ballot, Root said:
"We can take this one step toward
not robbing the people of their part in
coven; meat, but toward robbing an ir
responsible nutocracy of its indefensible
autocracy of its indefensible and unjust
and undemocratic Control of govern
ment, and restoring tr to the people to
be exercised by men or tiieir cnoice anu
Root left his place ns chairman of
tho convention to take the floor and
deliver his speech. He made no refer
ence to aspirations for the presidential
nomination, but some regarded Root as
putting himself on record with such
progressive views ns many believe the
man chosen by the republicans must
have if the progressives are to be
drawn back in'to the republican ranks.
Threats Hold Moslems
On Fighting Line
San Francisco, Aug. 31. Threats of
death if they retreat or are taken pris
oners are holding the Turks firm in
their lines at the Dardanelles, according
to a communication received from the
battlo lines in that region today. The
letter is signed by Joseph Bengalis, a
Maltese soldier, and is addressed to his
cousin, Charles Min'frud, of this city.
"A hnndful of German officers hnve
hundreds of thousnnds of Turkish sol
diers so terrified that they will do
anything," said Bengalis. "From the
necks of Turkish prisoners we have
taken 'death scrolls'. Each Moslem sol
dier is supplied with one. He is forced
to read it every morning.
"The scroll tells the solder tnnt lr
ho retreats his officer is vuiting with a
gun and that if he surrenders the enemy
will shoot hiin. It consigns him to ev
erlasting torment if he stops fighting.
"The waste of Turkish life is terrific."

Portland, Or., Aug. 31. There was a
great deal of speculation in Portland
