Fair Ground Crossing
Acting on the belief that the cross
ing of the Southern Pacific railway at
the state fair grounds is a menace to
the safety of many people, H. H. Cory
of the public service commission has
addressed the following letter to F. L.
Burckhnlter, superintendent of .South
ern Pacific at Portland:
"In the interest of safety first we
wish to direct your attention to the ex
tremely hazardous condition of the
crossing of your track at the fair
grounds station, which is yearly trav
ersed by thousands of patrons of the
state fair. Owing to the fact that the
crossing is not planked or graveled the
rails and ties project above your, right
of way to such an extent that people
often trip and fall. You will recall
that some three or four years ago a
young man lost hi life by tripping on
the rail at this point and falling in
front of an approaching passenger
train. Last year the writer observed
one persop falling and receiving a se
vere scalp wound.
"We believe you will agree that at
small expense an extremely hazardous
crosing can be placed in a greatly im
proved condition by planking or gravel
ing the crossing above mentioned. This
should receive your prompt attention,
an the state fair begins September
The Ford assembling plant at Port
land has been unable to receive ship
ments for the past three weeks. Hence
those who had been saving up their
spare change to do a little motoring of
their own have not been able to motor.
But everything comes to anyone who
will wait long enough and the an
nouncement is made that a ear load
will arrive in the city tomorrow.

TTTln selecting a garment the greatest
( problem before a woman is to achieve
vL correct style without sacrificing her in
JU dividuality-her personality. Not only
must she patronize a store with a reputation
for fashion accuracy, but she must also
choose that store which offers styles in great
range of varying details and colorings. In
other words, you must select from fashion's
allurements that garment which was asso
ciated with you in the designer's imagination.
Come and see that garment.

SO DO THE COMPLAINTS
Car shortaco complaints are still be
ing received at the office of the pub
lie service commission. The following
letter from the Ewauna Box company
of Klamath Falls came in this morn
ing's mail. It is a 'OPT of a letter ad
dressed to E. O. McCormiek, vice pres
ident of the Southern Pacific railway
company, at San Francisco:
"We have wired your company many
time this year and quite often within
the last sixty days for cars in which
to load tiiook, and we appreciate your
having answered nearly every telegram,
although we have .not. received cars in
sufficient numbers to keep our factory
operating any longer,
"We have 130 car loads of shook
piled in and around our warehouses.
Much of it, approximately 130 car
loads, is piled in the open and is sub
jeet to all the elements of the weather
and much damago is being done to this
"We have three warehouses all full,
including aisles and alleyways, and our
cost of loading cars from waroiiouse
in tnis condition requires twice the or
diuary time and is therefore twice the
expense to us.
"Our customers are in distress for
want of shook, and we have it to sup
ply them, but yon are not furnishing
"The Klamath Manufacturing com
pany of this j-ity receives sufficient
cara from your company to keep their
factory operating full time. Their ware
house is not nearly full, and they were
obliged to operate four hours Sunday
in order to complete loading four ears
placed for them that day.-
"We are manufacturing twice as
mucn shook that good concern, yet
they are receiving practically as mauy
cars for shook as we do. We do not
know whether or not this is discrimi
nation, but we do know that our eost
of operating has increased 25 per cent
since we have been unable to secure
cars, and about -0 per cent of the
shook piled in our yards is being de
stroyed by weather conditions.
"Our customers' patience is begin
ning to cease. They want the shoox
and therefore we want the ears.
"We informed you in February of
this year that we would ship 1000 to
liOO car loads of shook this season, at
the rate of 100 ears monthly, and to
please keep ns in cars. We may as
well have informed a gopher hole."
The Southern Pacific reports to tlie
public service commission this morn
ing that a total of lt3 empty cars have
been received at Ashlaud during the
past twenty four hours for use on t'e
Portland division. Tho preieut short
age ia 1476 ears.

To Make Skin Clear
Don't worry about skin troubles. Yon
can have a clear, clean complexion by
using a little acmo, obtained at any drnft
store for 25c, or extra large bottle at
$1.00. . ,
Zemo easily removes all traces or pim
ples, black heads, eczema, and ringworm
and makes the skin clear and healthy.
Zemo is neither watery, sticky nor.
greasy and stains nothing. It ia easily
applied and costs a mere trifle for eack
application. It is always dependable.
