I'lutflp Monthly Announce Great Story by Famous Autlior. The following announcement has Just been received by the East Ore gonlan from the Pacific Monthly: Doubtless the keenest Joy known to the editorial soul, after receiving and reading a great novel, la the Joy of announcement of It to readers. Our Have You Defective Eyesight ? If so, place your case In the hands of a competent Optician. Wo use the latest, most scien tific and most thorough method of testing the eyes. We use nothing but the best lenses. Our charges are reasonable and work guaranteed. Louis Hunziker Jeweler and Optician. 7SI Main St. experience with Herman Whltaker's fine story, "The Settler," which was concluded some months ago, taught us that no feature of a magazine Is more widely appreciated and eagerly sought than a strong serial. Ever since this, we have been trying to get another strong novel. Some people have an Impression that the literary woods arc full of unknown geniuses who can write great stories, but that no opportunity exists for such, as the authors with the "great names mo- noDOlIze the field. Thousands of writers Imagine that, if only they had a chance. Fame would be theirs, too. But it seems to be the concurrence of publishing experience that a good thing Is rare. If you want to be sure of securing a masterly work, you must apply to those who have established their right to be called masters. In our search for a great novel, we have been impressed by the fact that every other publisher Is seeking the same thing; the work of every mas terly author Is eagerly snapped up. We wrote to every author of note In America, setting forth our want, and offering any price for the right thing. We found every one of them willing enough, but the work of each had been spoken for for at least a year ahead. London, who has already contrib uted several short stories to The Pa cific Monthly, we scarcely hoped to reach, and did not communicate with him, as he was out of the country, until we accidentally learned that he had Just completed, and was Bending from somewhere In the South Seas, the manuscript of his latest novel. An urgent telegram and letter to his agent, Mrs. Nlnetta Karnes, offering a good round sum for the mere priv ilege of reading the manuscript, and for an option upon It for 10 days, brought a prompt and favorable re ply. The manuscript came, beautiful ly typewritten, 142,000 words in length. "Mr. London says you may. give it for title, either 'Success' or 'Martin Eden,' " wrote Mrs. Eames, "and as for Its character. Judge for yourself." Mr. London himself Is too modest to express himself beyond the following brief remark In a letter: "I do not know what you will think of this novel; I do not know what to think of it myself. But at any rate you will find It entirely different from anything else I have done." It Is quite different from anything else Mr. London has ever done. It Is neither surcharged with the author's tendency to soclologic discussion, nor with -many of the peculiarities of manner and form found In all his oth er work. It establishes the author's reputation for versatility, and will without question take rank among the great novels of recent years. "You must have that novel," said Charles Ersklne Scott Wood, after he had finished reading the manuscript; "It Is a good story." But we had already telegraphed our acceptance. While Mr. London's price, 17000, seemed a bit heavy for a young western magazine, we were, of course aware that we were getting the first-comer's bargain; especially after receiving a telegram from a 000 for our option. Maybe we are a 000 for our option. Maybe we ae a bit garrulous in gossiping thus, but really, we may be pardoned Jubilance over our new possession. Something further as to the story? Mrs. Eames, who knows Mr. London like a mother, says that he has woven into Martin Eden a thinly disguised picture of his own early struggles for success in literature. Somehow there Is a suggestion of Les MIserables Jean Valjean though of course with an entirely dissimilar motive. Writes a critical friend whom we asked to read the manuscript: "Once In a generation there strug gles to the light a soul nurtured In darkness, but born to power Irresist ible. Martin Eden Is the portrayal of- such a soul striving, toiling, fight ing for, and, in the end, winning knowledge from Ignorance, culture from degradation, and eminence from obscurity. Through all, his guiding star is a woman In the higher sphere to which he at last attains; but the mainstay of his success Is the majes ty of his strength, the tenacity of his courage, and the sublimity of his pur CANADIAN' FIG GROWING.

Two sizts, pints $5.00, quarts $7.50. THE DRUQ STORE THAT SERVES YOU BEST.. J Consul A. G. Seyfert, of Colllng- wood, reports that the culture of figs has proved successful In the Canadian province of Ontario. He says: The Niagara peninsula, that par.t of Ontario west of the .Niagara river to the western end of Lake Ontario, Is well known as one of the finest fruit-growing sections In the province If not in Canada, but It may surprise many to learn that fig culture has been successfully conducted near Ni agara on the lake for the last 40 years. The climate of this section of the peninsula appears peculiarly suited for the culture of figs. The open waters of Lake Ontario and the Niagara river modify the tempera ture greatly, and the usually com paratively mild winter, as compared with the same latitude elsewhere, followed by a backward spring caus ed by the ice coming down the river from the upper lake and the dry and warm summer, produce an Ideal climate for all kinds of fruit, espe cially figs. The fig is a native of subtropical countries, and Is almost unknown In central North America In Its fresh state. The theory is that figs will suc ceed In any country where peaches and apricots do well without protec tion, If the fig plant receives proper winter protection. The fig growers of the Niagara district protect their plants In the following manner during the winter: As soon as the leaves have fallen and shnrp frosts set In, two or three of the branches are bent to the ground In their natural direction and tied loosely with strips of cotton or other soft material and held In place by crotched pegs, care being taken not to injure the bark. When all branches are down the whole Is cov ered with a mound of earth three to four feet In depth. In the writer's ex perience fine sand ' is preferable to earth, as it keeps away mice and cut worms, which are injurious to the young wood. In the spring when danger from severe frost Is over, air Is let Into the mound by holes made with a small pole or the handle of a rake, and during the following 10 days the earth Is removed In Installments. Care must be taken that the bark is not Injured In the process. When the bush is fully exposed It Is gen erally found that bearing wood is cov ered with small fruit, about the size of a large pea, while the buds show, but are not open. Varieties that have proved most successful at Niagara are the White and Purple Ischlas, the Brown Turkey, and White Genoa. Frank Snyder has been In town to day' from his wheat ranch. M. F.

A few like Webster rise wholly by their talents. Yet even these must have a field to work In. Lincoln came to the front through the effort to resist extension of slav ery. Grant through the civil war. Cleveland because he had been an acceptable mayor of Buffalo, and a peculiar turn In the politics of New York gave him opportunity to become governor of the state, by a great ma jority.
