MRS. FRANK REEVES SECURES CONCES
SIONS FROM RAILROADS ON BOTH THE
FREIGHT AND EXCURSION RATES FOR
CHELAN COUNTY WEEK AT THE FAIR.
In an interview with a World re
porter yesterday, Mrs. Frank Reeres,
the Chelan county hoßtess for the
Lewis and Clark exposition at Port
laud, and who has just returned from
a week's visit to the Fair said:
"I fonnd the Fair most interesting
and think that anyone who has seen
large fairs, like the World's Fair in
Chioago. and the St. Lords fair, will
say that this, though smaller in ex
tent, compares most favorably with
them in perfection of detail and
beauty of arrangement. As for the
exhibits, there is enough, and more
than enough to see. I spent a good
deal of time in the Washington state
building, studying the county exhi
bits, and think [that our Chelan coun
ty exhibit is a good one, growing bet
ter every day, and managed with con
eumate skill by Mr. Graham. I can
not speak too highly of the work that
both he and the state commissioner
are doing. I visited the Snohomish
county exhibit and naturally was ex
ceedingly interested in the work of
their county hostess, and her corps of
20 ladiee. They wen furnished with
an ample supply of money to enter
tain with and were expending it in a
way to get fine results and future ben
efits for their county.
"1 feel that I accomplished several
things during my stay, that will prove
cf great advantage to Chelan county.
Notably. I was piomised by the rail
road officials a much lower excursion
rate for Chelan county week, than has
hsiotot'ore been granted. I also so
cured free transportation for a carload
of oar fruit to Portland, and free
drayage for the same to the state
bni'ding. It is planned to secure one
or more carloads of our finest fruit
for free distribtion during our week.
This will probably help more than any
other one thing we can do. Our week
comes at a particularly desirable
time. October being the most delight
ful season of the year in Portland and
our products being at their fiuest.
It is to be hoped that everyone in the
county will feel the importance of our
Mrs. Reeves said that she found the
heat in Portlaud almost as bad as it is
here, and to her it seemed more op
pressive, owing to the greater degree
of liumidity in the Coast atmosphere.

THE SUN IMAGE
Oliver Adams and I were sitting one
afternoon In a room facing the west
A shutter was closed, and the sunlight
shone through the spaces at the ends
of the slats. Now, tfiotigh spaces
were not round, we noticed that a
round spot of light from each crack fell
on the wall opposite the window. I had
often seen the phenomenon before and
called Adams' attention to It. A sin
gular expression came over bis face as
ke looked at them.
"Can you explain the circular form?"
"Only that the spots of light are mi
nnte Images of the sun," he replied.
"But It Isn't this that Interests me. 1

Images without being profoundly

was a story behind his emotion.
"When I was married," he said, "to
the best woman In the world—l drew
a matrimonial prize among hundreds of
blanks—l was doing well in business
and was able to provide for the three
little kids that came along during the
first five years of my married life. My
wife was not extravagant; indeed, she
looked out for the nickels very care
fully. Nevertheless, no matter how
careful a woman may be In this respect,
she Is a natural plunger, and I found
out my Daisy was one of that kind.
"One evening In midsummer when
my family was out of town I was per
suaded to go into a gambling house. I
never dreamed of betting when I enter
ed, but I soon caught the fever, and
when I left the place I had won some
thing like $GO. I was so well pleased
with my venture that I tried it again
the next night. I won steadily for a
week; then I began to lose. To make
a long story short, by the time my wife
came home I was ruined. I sold out
my business to pay my debts and had
$250 over with which to begin the
world again. My wife was plucky
about it all and refrained from what
nineteen In twenty women would have
done under the circumstances. She nev
er spoke a word of blame.
"I received my $250 one morning and
In the afternoon went with It to try
to recover my losses, telling Daisy I
was going to take a walk. I won over
$1,200, but lost it the same olght, win
ning and losing alternately. My wife
knew as well as I what I was doing,
but never said a word, pretending ig
norance. When I had lost all my win
nings and $200 besides she began to
look anxious. Not that I said a word.
I didn't need to. She could tell by my
face how I stood, and when she want
ed to know exactly she would examine
my pocket book after I was asleep.
"One afternoon I went to the *den*

have looked pretty miserable, for my
wife kissed me before I left the bouse
and said, *Be sure to be home for din

had but one white chip left. The deal

and was yawning incessantly, having
been at his work all the night before.

a young fellow who came and leaned
over me, watching my game. I put
my last chip on the ten and lost. I

sombrero drawn down over the face

flash and left the place, leaving me to
pick up my winnings. I stuffed all my
pockets full and went home. When I
went upstairs Daisy was In bed. She
asked me the usual question—had I

that I had and turned in.
