When It is related that the estimated number of cats In Wil mington is 300,000 and that each is supposed to have nine lives, the mag nitude of the undertaking will be realized. Women are aroused, and contemplate sending a round robin to the board, protecting against Buch a catastrophe. Sliss E-mlly Webb, who Is recogniz ed as the champion of dumb beasts In Wilmington, has suggested that the men who talk of such things should be chloroformed.

ROSE CITY MAKES GREAT RECORD IX WHEAT SHIPMENTS Exported More Wly-at m February Than New York and Phlladelpliia Combined Leads Combined Paget Sound Ports Total of 2,279,791 ISuhIiuIm Sent Out More Than One- Fourth Total Exported by the En tire United State. Portland exported more wheat dur ing the month of February than any other port In the United States. Even old reliable New York had to take a back seat when the Oregon metrop olis sent out 2,279,791 bushels and Philadelphia, Baltimore, Galveston and other prominent wheat shipping ports look Insignificant when their records are compared with those' of Che Rose City, says the Oregon Dally Journal. Comparative figures of exports from the United States were received this morning by the collector of customs In the monthly report of the depart ment of commerce and labor and they Indicate Portland's standing In the field of exports. The report shows that during February the United States exported 8,002,800 bushels of wheat, and of this quantity, Portland shipped more than one-fourth. Rt-atff Combined Sound Shipment. The combined shipments from Pu get sound are about equal to those Horn the one city on the Willamette. It appears, however, that the statis ticians In the office of the collector of customs on Puget sound have bol stered their wheat figures a little since they show approximately 600, iJOO bushels more than statistics fur nished from other sources. The statistics of the department of commerce and labor are compiled from reports from the various coflec tors of customs throughout the land and when the report credits the com bined Puget sound ports with having exported 2,616.404 bushels wheat dur ing the month, whereas the Mer chants Exchange of this city main tains that the sound ports eported but 2,056.312 bushels, it appears as If a serious blunder has been made by the compilers. .The San Francis co Commercial News, an old publi cation, which among otlir things makes a specialty of keeping tab on wheat shipments from Pa-clflc coast ports, conmrs closely wltft the Mer chants Exchange figures. Half a doz en cargoes would be required to make up the difference In tj figures and statisticians here are at a loss to knew how tie figure Jugglers of Pujet souny are going to account for thm. Ei.wn with the bolstered figures the Individual sound cities offer no om pnaion with Rprlaud In regard to wheat shipments.. Ahead of Eastern Port. Portland's wheat exports were 2, 040,197 bushelp to Europe, 157,23 bushels to th orient and 52,355 bush, els to the west coast, on which figures all agree fc the single bushel. New York exported 1,179.316 bush els and Philadelphia set 780,743 bush els afloat during the same period, which goes to show that Portland, ex ported more than New York and Phil adelphia combined. Heretofore New York led with Philadelphia a close second and Portland third, fourth or fifth. The report shows further that dur ing the eight months ending Febru ary 29 there has been exported frorri the United States 82,914,315 bushels of wheat and 9,882.446 barrel of flour. During the corresponding per iod a year ago the exports were 57. 661,164 bushels of wheat and 9,875, 014 barrels of flour. During February of this year New York led in flour, shipments with 529,108 barrels. Portland exported 65,245 barrels and the combined Pu get sound cities exported 85,596 barrel" WEAK FIE1 SUFFERING UNABLE TO PERFORM VORK Discouraged After Spending Money Without Benefit Found Help at Last. Mf. Earl! MeCor. Ilvfn? at 1508 Br. Branson Street, Marlon, Ind., has passed through an experience that Is being duplicated every day In every town and city of any consequence In the United States. It furnishes abun dant proof of the correctness of L. T. Cooper's theory In regard to the de generacy of the human stomach, and Bhows conclusively the merit possessed by bis New Discovery medicine to re Btore the weakened system to full strength and vigor. Mr. McCoy says: "For a long time I have been a sufferrer from stomach trouble. I was' unabl to retain any food, and became so weak and run down ' that I was compelled to stop work. My system was nearly a wreck, and I had tried so many remedies and spent so much money without deriv ing any benefit,, that L became dis-l conraged and gave up hope of ever being well again. "I beard a great deal of Itn Coop er's theory and medicine, and 'after much hesitation decided to try. It, The result was a pleasant surprise. Before I had taken half of the first bottle I was able to retain all food eaten" and. my strength began to return. I have taken six or seven bottles, and- am. feeling fine. I eat and sleep well, do not congh at night, and am ablo tr perform a hard day's work. I can cheerfully recommend Cooper's New Discovery, for it has done wonder for me." The Cooper remedies are meeting with remarkable success wherever they are Introduced. They are with out a rival In toning up a weakened! and run-down system. We sell them.. Pendleton wug co. TROUT LAKE RAGING. nouses Submerged ln the Town by Flood From Foothill of Mt. Ad ams. Out at Trout Lake the waters are raging on account of fresh snow on the foothill of Mt.

AeaoWil plHdiarye of Lornled Rlot. jpiin Frlgfric.ns Yiimhor of People There could Just as well have been a tragedy at the depot this morning when the first section of No. 6 pulled Into the station, In which a dozen or more lives might have been sniffed out, and as many more Injured, says the La Grande Observer. A shotgun, heavily loaded with buckshot. In the express car, fell from Its fastenings, striking on a box, on the hammer, which caused the weapon to be dis charged, tearing a hole through the partition and roof of the car. One of the buckshot glanced and struck Mrs. C. M. Walker of Elgin, who was at the depot awaiting the departure of tho Elgin train. By her side was her 6-year-old daughter, and the platform was fairly packed with passengers getting off and on the train, besides the spectators who were nunferous, to see the flrsj train from Portland for several days. Mrs. Walker at once returned to the home of her. father-in-law, A.. N. Walker, who resides In North La Grande, and called a physician, who found that, while the bullet had pass ed entirely through her clothing and caused an abrasion, It had not enter ed her hip. Mrs. Walker will bo able to return to her home In the morn ing. Had the gun not" fallen In such a position that held the muzzle up. not a few homes would have been In mourning today. Rig Range Cattle Shipment. Sixteen carloads of range cattle were shipped from here o Ellensburg today by Messrs. Cook & Bull of Ellensburg.
