WHAT IT COSTS TO SEE THE
Visitors at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition in Portland this sum
mer will be surprised to find how
cheaply the big fair may be seen.
The expenses of the trip de
epefid largely, of course upon the
individual who makes the trip,
but a schedule of the fixed ex
penses has been pre pared which
enables one to get a fairly ac
curate , idea of the cost of seeing
The visitors in Portland ill find
an abundance of suitable accomo
dations and it may be said au
thoratively that no one need pay
in excess of one dollar a night
for clean, comfortable lodgings.
Within the last few months
temporary hotels and lodging
houses with a grand total of 2670
rooms have been erected near the
main entrance to the grounds,
while the American Inn, within
the grounds has 586 rooms. In
addition to these accomodations,
the Hill Military and
St. Helens Hall will be avail
able, while almost evry house
in the district between the down
town portion of Portland and the
Exposition will take lodgers dur
ing the summer. In most cases
accommodations may be found
within easy walking distance of
the grounds and a five cent
street car ride is available from
any part of the city. While the
average price charged for lodg
ing will be one dollar per night,
per person, many rooms may be
obtained, especially in the tem
porary hotels near the grounds,
for 75c 50c or even 25 cents.
Most people will find it more
convenient to take breakfast at
their lodging place or at a down
town restuarant than at the
grounds. Twenty five cents
for breakfast, and 52c for lunch
eon within the grounds, while
for the evening meal 50 cents
may be considered a fair price,
making the cost of three meals
Admission to the grounds costs
50c and an allowance of a similar
sum should be made fur mci
dentals, which include admis
sion to several attractions on the
Trail, the amusement street.
The schedule of expenses per
day for the average person of
economy then, is as follows:
Lodging, per day, $1; meals,
$1; admission, SOcts; Trail
shows, etc., 50cts. This sched
ule is on the basis of a five-day
stay at the fair. All who can
possibly do so should spend at
least ten days, however. For
these the expense need not be
quite so great per day, as it may
be possible to get rooms at a
lower rate by engaging them for
a week or more, and the entire
expense per day may be reduced
to $2.25. The person who
spends the longer period should
take advantage of the opportun-
inty to view some wonderful
scenery within a short distance of
Portland. A five cent fare
by street car takes one to Port
land Heights where a wonderful
fine view of the city, the Willa
mette and Columbia rivers and
the snow capped mountains may
be enjoyed. Other delightful but
inexpensive trips include a visit
by street car to City Park and a
ride on the Willamette river by
boat. The cost of these trips
may be deducted from the fifty
cents a day allotted for Trail at
tractions and souvenirs, since
the total expense for these feat
ures need not exceed the $2.50
laid aside in figuring the cost of
the five day trip. Figuring as
above then, the expenses of a
five day and a ten day stay at the
Fair may be reckoned as follows:
Five day visit:
Admisison & Incidentals 5.00
Total necessary expense. . $15.00
Ten day visit:
Incidentals including souven-
irs, Tail attactions, and car
and boat rides, 2.50
Total necessay expense- •. $25 00

The New Issue in Temperance.
The Leading Temperance Paper, Soundi
the Call to a New Crusade In
the Following Article.
« ANOTHER HEAD ON THE HYDBA."
" It is time attention was drawn to a
form of alcoholic traffic that seems to
have been overlooked by those engaged
in the crusade against the rum power.
If, us is believed and taught, alcohol if
i^ost dangerous when it fights in ambush,
if it is most to be dreaded when it finds
its first entrance to the system in the
pleasant sauces and dishes of the home,
then the form of alcoholic traffic in ques
tion is doubly dangerous, for it comes in
the guise of medicine and attacks a sys
tem prepared by weakness to easily sur
render to the assault. In many
which are largely consumed throughout
the country, by all classes of people,
there is a percentage of alcohol which
puts them on a ltYel with beer, rum and
whisky as intoxicants. It is the small
ness only of the dose prescribed which
prevents a prompt recognition of the in
toxicating effects of these so-called medi
cines by those who use them.
" It is safe to affirm that thty are
MEDICINES IN NAME ONLY.
Their chief value He* in their alcoholic
effect as a stimulant. In fact, those who
know, attribute the benefits ascribed to
this class of medicines wholly to the
stimulative effect of the alcohol they
contain. They are used largely by per
sons not In the habit of drinking liquors,
and the little dose taken three or four
time a day is as stimulating to these
people as his regular "finger"' of "bit
ters " is to the regular liquor-drinker.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
"What ought to be done at least is to
compel every patent-medicine manufacU
urer to put on the wrapper of his bottle
the quantity of alcohol it contains. That
would at least leave people to exercise
their own judgments. More than that,
no paper truly interested in temperance
reform should print the advertisement
of any alcoholic medicine. It should be
the duty of every temperance organiza
tion and branch in the country to look
into this question, agitate it, and deal
with the facts just as earnestly and aa
honestly as other facts have been dealt
Appreciating the gravity of the issue
raised by the strong statement of facts
made in the foregoing article, we wish
to call general attention to the fact that
Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery
and Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription
NO ALCOHOL, NO WHISKY, NO INTOXI-
CANT OP ANY KIND.
ttiese medicines are equally free from
opium and other narcotics.
They are in the strictest meaning of
\he words, temperance medicines. Of no
other medicine, put up especially for
woman's use can it be truthfully affirmed,
as of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription,
that it contains neither alcohol nor opium
or other narcotic in any form.
While the negative features of Doctor
Pierces medicines may only interest
some of the readers of this article, the
positive features of these medicines must
be of interest to every one. The great
value of "Golden Medical Discovery"
in the cure of diseased or deranged con
ditions of the stomach and digestive and
nutritive organs is testified to by tens of
thousands who have found health and
healing in this great remedy. The " Dis
covery" increases the action of the blood
making glands, and by curing the dis
eases which corrupt and cripple the
stomach and digestive and nutritive or
gans, it enables a full and pure supply of
blood to be sent to every part of the Dody.
WOMEN ENOW ITS WORTH.
Women who are always appreciative
of benefits, have been especially appre
ciative of the benefits following the use
of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. Its
wonderful cures of irregularities, inflam
mations, ulcerations ana female troubles,
have caused women to name it, " that
God-send to women." It is entitled to
wear the " blue ribbon " of merit as well
as the blue ribbon of temcerance.
