In a final drive for production prior to the customary close down for mid season repairs, the lumber industry last week operated up to within 2 per cent of normal, notwithstanding sea sonable trade dullness, car shortage, and the banking policy of restricted credit. Production at 126 West Coast Liumbermpn's Association mills was 88,274.083 feet, which is only 1 88 per cent less than normal production for the operations reporting. Ship ments totaled 78.371.708 feet, of which 31.94 per cent were shipments by water or locally by auto truck and not requiring cars. Rail shipments! Just 25 Y ears Ago This Month This business was established and has been conducted under one management con tinuously to the present date. We are proud of our record of serving the public as dis tributors of honest merchandise through honest and clean methods and appreciate the confidence the people place in us by their continuous and ever increasing patronage. Twenty-five years surely bring about a good many changes to all of us in every walk of life. Within this last twenty-five years we noticed things going from one extreme to the other —styles changed from "high neck-long sleeve-long wide skirts" to "narrow short skirts-no sleeve-low neck"—prices changed, too. In 1895 we sold good overalls for 50c a pair and now they are selling at $2.50. Colors of dress changed from extreme modest, sober colors to very bright shades. BUSINESS METHODS have changed, from SOBER, MATTER OF FACT WAYS to "SENSATIONAL WAYS AND METHODS "-anything and everything seem to go nowadays, regardless of facts or propriety. The newspapers are full of "HALF PRICE", "THIRD PRICE", "QUARTER PRICE" and FIFTH PRICE" off sales—any method to get the money, regardless of truth—is the modern way. The world is fast drifting towards moral bankruptcy. At present we are going through a form of hysteria, politically and commercially. Everything is coming to the surface except the truth. "Camouflage" is keeping the facts covered up. What are the real conditions commercially? Why the real conditions affecting the values of STAPLE COTTON and WOOLEN GOODS, HOSIERY and UNDERWEAR are such that manufacturers absolutely decline to make any price concessons whatever and can't figure out how soon they can and will do it. When it comes to Silk Goods, there is a decline of from 10 to 15 per cent, due to the raw silk market collapse in Japan, and as to leather goods, on a few grades of leather there is a decline from sto 10 per cent. THIS IS THE TRUTH IN A NUT SHELL, and under these conditions and facts, STORES THAT HAVE BEEN AND ARE SELLING MERCHANDISE RIGHT AND HAVE NOT "PROFITEERED" can not truthfully sell from 20 per cent to 50 per cent off unless they mark the goods UP and then DOWN —that is "camouflage." There should not be that big a profit marked on goods in the first place. Strictly staple Cotton and Wool Piece Goods and Knit Goods we aim to sell within 10 per cent of replacement cost and that leaves us merely THE OVERHEAD EX PENSE OF HANDLING IT and no room for an honest 20 per cent reduction. However, we. thought this matter over in all details, and in order to show you our appreciation of your good will, confidence and patronage and to fittingly celebrate our "Twenty fifth Business Anniversary" we will make the public a. "gift" of our net profits on Silks, Fancy Woolen Dress Goods, Shoes, Men's and Boys' Woolen Clothing, Waists, Silk Hose, Ladies' and Misses' Ready to-Wear Goods, Silk Shirts, Floor Covering, Draperies, Rugs, Trunks and Bags. Commencing Monday, June 21 and Ending June 30,1920 These concessions will be in the form of a Discount, as follows: Broken lines of CLOTHING, 20 per cent, regular lines, 10 per cent; on staple SHOES, 10 per cent; on fancy DRESS SHOES, 20 per cent. ALL SILK GOODS, including piece Silks, Hosiery, Waists and Men's Shirts, 15 per cent; fancy WOOL DRESS GOODS, 10 per cent; RUGS, LINOLEUMS, DRAPERIES, TRUNKS and LEATHER BAGS and SUITCASES, 10 per cent. On Ladies' and Girls' SILK and WOOL DRESSES, SUITS and COATS, 20 per cent.. On Ladies' and Girls' Cotton READY-TO-WEAR GOODS, 10 per cent. You all are familiar with our prices—THEY WILL NOT BE RAISED for this occa sion—everything will be HONEST AND STRAIGHT FORWARD—You will appreciate this opportunity and benefit by it—buy only what you can use, the merchandise is all desirable and up to date and nothing is hid away in reserve. We have no desire to push anything on to you; in fact we are entirely indifferent how much or how little we sell—because everything we sell has to be replaced at once and very likely for more money than we get for it from you.

Coastwise water shipments amounted to 13,- 340,559 feet; export shipments, 7,- 916,410 feet, and local auto truck de liveries, 3,774,739 feet.
