There arc (stored away In the gar ni of the asylum mire than a hun drM.l trunks and ab ut 300 valises and differerit itl of cases. Of these, tlif owners of 50 of the rase ni 30 of the trunks are dead. The trunks are of all styles and kinds; in size from midget child's trunk to the mamm :h size usually used more for the storing away of goods rather than for the moving of them. There are tru'iks which are sr, by courtesy only, having been originally Ice-chests, egg-crates and various other kinds of cases, but which the ingenuity of the owner has transformed into Home kind of re ceptacle for clothing. One s able to fairly well deduct the cause which placed the unfirtu iiates In the asylum by a glanc? through these trunks. Here a trunk almost filled with Bibles makes It plain that the person who owned It, became mentally unbalanced because of religious fervor.

Some, of course, have their af flictions which do not appear In their belongings, or perhaps do appear In a peculiar manner, but which the ordi nary observer Is unable to judge. Among the clothing of one of the un fortunate Inmates was found a wrap per made of thousands of different colored clothes. Another kept ,her clothing stuffed with hundreds of pieces of torn dresses. It has been dec'ded that the cloth ing being wasted by being stored away shall now be put to some use. The inmates will be clothed In such garments as they bring with them In to the institution, and that which Is still serviceable and the owners of which have died or left the asylum, will be given to the other patients.' A great quantity of the trunks and cases, which are falling apart from wear and old age, are to be destroyed after they have been passed upon by the board. There are tropical daisies a foot In circumference. Choice of 00 WILL PLANT 5000 ROSES. February 22 Will bo Row Planting Day in Portland.

Tallmaii made a trip to the Mare Island navy yard at San Fran?lsco and writes Intercst- 'nfily to his grandson of h's visit there. ' That portion of the letter referring c the navy yard and the coming of th Atlantic t!eet to the Padf.. coast Is as follows: , I spent yesterday over on Mare Island at tho navy ward, getting the names of the United States ships here In the harbor near the navy yard, and learning things about the 16 battleships that are coming around the Horn to this coast to make a g tod strong Pacific squadron to pro tect our western coast against the J.ip.viese or any other country. I Rot the numes of all the battle shlpR that are coin'ng, and something concerning their Itinerary. I could get over on the Island at the navy yard offices all rmrtlculars about these battleships and their Itinerary. Their names and size, and the number of guns each carry and their displacement, and the horse power of their engines, etc. And likewise I got the names of all the warships here In the harbor now. There are no battleships here now. There are 20 ships here, but they are all transports and armored cruis ers and protected cruisers and gun boats, one Monitor and torpedo boat. But all tho 16 ships that are com ing are great battleships. I am stopping with Mr. Daggett hero, who came here from Pendleton and Is a clerk over In the offices of the navy yard on Mare Island. Yesterday afternoon I went an board the South Dakota, which Is a l.rgo armored cruiser, and was shown all through It. Then right by the side of it. so I could go over on 't by i' ging plank, was the St. Louis. I then went on It and looked It all over. It Is it protected cruiser. Then when the 16 battleships get here we will have a strong Pacific squadron. 1 will now give you a little con (einlng the Itinerary of these great battleships. They left Hamilton Runds, Vlrgln'a, December 16, 1907. Then they left Trinidad, West Indies, December 29; left Pernnmbucn, Bra zil, January 10; left Rio de Janeiro, January 20; then on for Cape Horn, and are expected to reach the Isth nurs of Panama on the Pacific side, nbotit March 9. then Magdalena Bay on tile west coast of Mexico about April fi. lb-re they will stop and coal and stay some days for target practice. We have a treaty with Mexico that permits them to coal mid have tar Bet practice here, so they will prob ably not reach San Franc sco till early in May. COLLEGE FOR ADV ENTISTS.
