The Science of Chemistry,
To take a given body of matter and divide it iato its elementary or primary parts; or
to take several different principles in matter, and by a proper combination of them,
produce, as the result, a united whole, that will in itself be perfect.
EVEN THE DIAMOND HAS LATELY BEEN PRODUCED by a combination
of certain principles in matter, and thus the creation of an object perfectly beautiful
has been attained through perseverance in chemical analysis.
It is venturesome to hope for ABSOLUTE PERFECTION IN ANY BUSINESS
UNDER THE SUN ; but we certainly do trust, that by persevering in what we may
term a system 'of CHEMICAL : ANALYSIS OF OUR OWN AFFAIRS, we may
attain to positive results in our dealings with the public that will be more thoroughly
desirable, and more nearly approach to the true than anj thing that has been done by
those before us in Sacramento.

Business 32_r_B^I7_E_ICJ»I5S,
And we have daily the pleasure of receiving ladies who never were inside of our
House before, but who now come because RECOMMENDED TO DO SO BY THEIR
FRIENDS, who are pleased with our prices and attention.
TMs is an Excellent Evidence of Healthy
Growth in Trade ;
But to further test the accuracy of our aims and ideas, we 2nd it useful to examine
the methods of those in Sacramento, from whom the public had a right to expect
something, but who have been so successful in keeping up appearances that they have
acquired for themselves a fortune such as falls not to the lot of many, while at the same
time deluding the public into the belief that they should really be regarded as the
benefactors of Mankind in this part of the world's domain.
tT THERE ARE CERTAIN BUSINESS METHODS WHICH CATCH THE
UNWARY FOR THE TIME BEING, but must sooner or later fall to the ground,
as the evidence of their treachery becomes evident to the public mind, and we shall
therefore avoid such pitfalls.
We start into a permanent business in Sacramento, with
PREMISES ALREADY PAID FOE, instead of purchasing a large prop-
erty and placing it under a heavy mortgage, upon which we would
have to pay a high rate of interest, such interest toeing taken out of
the pockets of customers hy making an extra profit on the goods
sold. In this we differ from our predecessors.
We shall not buy our goods on four. or six months' credit, deceiving the people
at the same time by saying that we bay for CASH, and calling our ' competitors
Thieves, Liars or Scoundrels, because it may serve for a War Cry ! In this, we
*
shall differ from our predecessors.
We shall not attempt to carry such a heavy load of debt as we have described,
but we start with money enough to pay all our bills promptly when the goods are
bought. In this also we differ from our predecessors.
We shall at no time embark in any new lines of goods, unless we haye — First, the
money to pay for what we purchase ; and, secondly, a proper personal knowledge of
the goods in that line of business. In this, too, we differ from our predecessors.
AS WE PAY FOR OUR GOODS WHEH BOUGHT, INSTEAD OF THREE,
FOUR OR SIX MONTHS AFTER, we are ready to be judged accordingly; and
we are willing to say that if we claim to buy' for CASH, but LIE WHEN WE SAY
SO, then it is not reasonable that the public should place confidence in any other state-
ment we make.
ANY HOUSE FOUND THUS DECEIVING THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE
SCORNED. OUR POSITION, IN THIS RESPECT, ALSO DIFFERS FROM
THAT OF OUR PREDECESSORS.
We will not make a huge conundrum of our business methods, causing our
customers needless annoyance, for the purpose of producing a big impression, by hum-
bugging them into the belief that we have a wonderful and mysterious system at work
in our House ; but we will do everything we can to make our patrons feel at ease, and
know that our sole aim is to serve them as promptly and simply as possible. In this we .
will differ from our predecessors. '
. .-. : X7X'yi y-'-X 1 ;-. _ .■ "-_.»,
Instead of raising our profits when we become established, we will always keep '
prices down, as they ought to be. We will not charge such extra profits as will enable '
us to give public entertainments and toady to the wealthy few, while we wring the
money to do it out of the pockets of those who work hard for what they earn. In this
regard, also, our methods will differ from our predecessors. : "*•
OUR HOUSE WILL BE STRICTLY AMERICAN IN ITS PRINCIPLES,
visitors being treated according to the maxim— " FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED;"
but so attentively that all may be pleased. .'
FINALLY— -When our House becomes larger— as it surely will— we will not put
on those airs that so foolishly ape the shoddyism of City Merchant Mock Aristocracy.
In this there will be a difference between us and some of our predecessors,

San Francisco, November sth,— This af
ternooa Loom Kaplan and Sheriff Desmond, I
having learned that they had been indicted !
by the * Grand Jury, appeared before De- j
partment No. 11 of the Superior Court.
delivered themselves into custody. There
are eighteen indictments against Kaplan, the
majority being for obtaining money by false
pretenses, and the others for grand and petty
larceny. The charges grew out of alleged
dishonesty in the matter of obtaining sup
plies for the Registrar's office during Kap
an's administration. The amounts alleged
in the indictments foot up over 84,000. Bail
was fixed at .500 on each charge, amounting
to $9,000. which was furnished by the ac
cused, Henry Schwartz and John Malloy as
sureties. Sheriff Desmond furnished $1,500
bail on the three charges of felony made
against him, with Richard Carroll and G. M.
Kurtz as sureties. The charges against Des
mond grew out of his having allowed I. M.
Kalloch to leave the County Jail oa occa
sions not provided for by law.
Up to 1:30 to-day thirteen new cases of
small-pox were reported to the Health De
partment. This makes 74 eases reported this
week. The victims are from various lec
tions of the city and mostly adults. The
Health Office is kept' open all night, and
small-pox patients are sent to the Twenty
sixth-street Hospitil as soon as possible after
being reported to the Health Officer and he i
passes upon, the nature of the disease. Of I
course many cases are re ported which prove
to be chicken-pox or soma other mild disease.
Most of those attacked hive been negligent
in not being vaccinated or revaccinated.

completely destroyed the building and its

house was owned by Win. Collins, who had a
small insurance. . His son-in-law, Albert
Honger, and family occupied the premises,

In the wheat market the tendency gener
ally has been toward greater firmness, with
an advance at most grain centers. The ves

and buyers continue to accept freely of fair

very large single lots, as holders are strength- |
ened by reports from abroad, and enly let go
at current offers under necessity from some
directions. J, Charters are ■ apparently at a
standstill, which in some measure accounts
for the slight improvement in prices. "

Disastrous Cumin grat ion.
J Portland, November sth.— This forenoon
at _ o'clock a fire broke on*; in the Astor
House at Eugene City, Lane county. It
started in the wash-room, and is supposed to
have been caused by a defective Hue. The
fl lines spread with g e.it rapidity, and soon
the adjoining buildings caught. The entire
portion of the block from the Astor House,
and the south tide of Willamette street, to
Seventh street, was consumed. 7lt became
apparent that the only safety for the entire

fire confined to th. east sidr. of the street,
and men and women worked with an
untiring energy to that end, and
some fell through eshaution. The wind
shifting favored them, amltbe city was saved.
