Tbera is not a dwelling house for rent in Atheua. Every tenant boose ia full and demands for houses are made every day. This speaks well for tbe town, and tbe faot tbat it is known that Atbena is to have an excellent school tbis year makes tbe demand for tenant bouses all tbe more pressing. There are a few residence properties bere tbat with tbe expenditure of a little money oould be made habitable, and oonld bo a Bouroe of revenue to the owner. In their present condition tbey ore not tit to live in and consequently remain vaoant, when otherwise tbey should be a souroe of benefit to tbe community in accommodating a cam ber of families who ato forced to fore go residenoe bere for want of suitable homes. In tbeir present oonditiou these bouses are an eyesore and a det riment to the town and tbe sohool alike. Generosity ia sometimes overdone, We read of A nifty, courteous young fellow, traveling on one of tbe oceau greyhounds, who dumped himself overboard tbe other day and resoned tbe handbag of a Boston dame, con taining her money and jewels veined at several thousands of dollars. For taking his life in his bands, tbe yonng man was rewarded with a package of cigarettes. As he did not smoke the filthy little lung destroyers, be re turned tbem to tbe lady with as mnoh grace as under tbe circumstanoes he oonld muster, and retired to bis state room to "dry out." "rosin" lils- bow lor a merry Jig. xne stoiy is told of him that once when away from home he received news of the "burning of his father's house. "Did you save any of my hooks?" he asked of the slave who brought him the tidings. "No, massa," answered the negro, "but we saved the fiddle." Maud Wilder Goodwin In "The Colo nial Cavalier." If some of tbe looal monev tbat has been poured down the rat-boles of wireless, wildoat mining schemes, As toria town lots, smelter propositions and way off oil fields bad been paid for Athena building lots, lumber and nails there would not now be a dearth of tenant bouses to aooommodate fam llies who desire to oome to tbe city to take advantage of tbe excellent cobool facilities offered. "Distance lends en chantment" and tbis is true in tbe matter of investment as in all tbiogs elte. Among tbe items of the Northwest news service of tbe past week, was one pertaining to the flour industry. It states tbat Northwest millers already have conl raots for furnishing flour to tbe export trade in sufficient tonnage to keep tbe mills grinding for nearly a year. In addition to this, tbe domes tic) demand will have to be taken care of. From ovory view point the mills of the PaoiUo slope wonld appear to bo iu a prosperous condition indeed. This state of affairs being true, and the fact tbat weeks ago all available ton- nago for Urieutal points bad been oharteted by flour exporters, it is but reasonable to conolude tbat wheat should be worth more than 70 cents per tusbel iu a very short time. With tbe completion of harvest and tbe sale of a portion of the soason's orop, the towns of the Umatilla and I'alouso wheat belt are flooded with scores of agents. Ibis year is no exception in this respect. Several took agents have struck this office during the week, and their tiresome visits wore interspersed with tho obIIh of a miuiug promoter and an ageut for a new fauglod curpot sweeper, tho latter being followed Ly a smooth in dividual who posod as an agent for a new Associated nows servico, but wbo had a sido line, the latest edition of tbe best encyclopedia ever publish ed.

Ten Out of Five. It was in an Ideal scaeoast town of Maine, to which they had fled for a lazy two weeks, that they found him, one of those "natives" with a largo stock of undeveloped wit. They were out gunning with the na tive as their guide. A flock of five birds flew over. Raising his gun, ho took aim and fired. All five fell to tho earth, and they were loud in their praises of his skill. "That ain't nothln'!" said he con temptuously. "If I'd hod my other gun along I'd 'a' done better than that." Metropolitan Magazine. TRAGIC IN ITS BREVITY. The Story of the Duel Between Hamil ton and Burr. The story of tho Hamilton-Burr duel Is tragic in its brevity. The llttlo party of five the principals, their seconds and the surgeon was on the ground not long after sunrise. The prelimi naries were soon arranged. As Ten dleton, Hamilton's second, gave him bis pistol he asked, "Will you have the hairspring set?" "Not this time," was the significant reply, and then the men faced each other. According to tho best authorities upon n disputed subject. Burr fired at the word. At the report Hamilton started forward with a convulsive movement, reeled, Involuntarily dis charging bis pistol into tbo foliage above lilm, and fell headlong. Burr, with an expression of pain upon his face, sprang toward bim, but Van Ness, his second, seized bim by the arm and hurried him down the bank and into tbeir boat. Hamilton, being lifted up, revived fof a moment and gasped, "This is a mortal wound, doctor." Relapsing again Into unconsciousness, he was again revived by the fresh air of the river. "Pendleton knows, he said, trying to turn toward his friends, "that I did not Intend to fire at him," At 2 the afternoon following he had breat bod bin Inst. , ....

Ono of tho needs, of tbo day is n perfectly spherical steel ball, and yet It has never been made even In tho laboratory, much less in tho shop for commercial uses. When we consider the Importance of ball bcnrlngs for nu tomobllos, motorcycles and other ma chinery the imperfections in steel bails must appeal to all as of the greatest moment. Of course wo make pretty good steel balls, which could net-have been manufactured n few years ago. So far as tho eye can discern, they aro perfectly spherical, too, and ordinary measuring Instruments will not be able to detect any difference in them, but nevertheless they are not perfectly spherical. A Mod ball for automobile bearings must bo perfect within .0001 Inch, and they are made even more perfect than this, but mathematical perfection In this respect seems to be almost as Il lusive as squaring tho circle or discov ering the perpetual motion machine. When the steel ball was first used In the bearings of bicycles it was a very Imperfect sphere. It was not called upon to bear any great load, and the velocity was not great. At the best the load on it was not more than 200 pounds, and at tho rate of sixty miles an hour the revolutions were not moro than 720 per minute. Compare that with the load and velocity of tho mod ern ball bearings of automobiles. Fre quently the load approximates a thou sand pounds and tho velocity is any where from 800 to 1,'JOO revolutions. The small steel balls must take the maximum load of the car and puss It on to others without binding or catch ing. .V slight imperfection in any one ball would cause trouble. In fact, It Is Impossible to use balls with any ap preciable variation in size from ono another, and the more nearly round they are the better the results. Steel balls aro not only made more perfect In shape than ever before, bnt they are harder and tougher. As there Is a tendency to flake, only spo clal stools can be used In their manu facture, and theso tough, bard steels are all the more dltllcult to work with to secure perfect roundness. The chrome steel, of which most balls for bearings are made, Is one of the most dltlicutt of steels to cut or shape, aud tho work of handling it lias developed special tools ami machines made of even harder material. While wo have not yet made the perfectly spherical steel ball and per haps may never succeed, the point of perfection reached is little short of wonderful. Tho approximately per fect steel ball is a matter of vital im portance wherever machines and ma chinery are made aud used. The ap plication of tho Ixill bearing system is extended to new lines of industrial use each year, and builders of all kinds of apparatus are taking advan tage of the perfection reached by the manufacturers of these little spheres of tough ateel.-Uarper's Weekly.

Gentlemen: I was afflicted with Kidney tad Bladder trouble for six years and had tried numerous preparations without getting any relief and had given up hope of ever being cured when FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE was recommended to me. After using one bottle I could feel the effect of it, and after taking six fifty-cent bottles, I was cured of Kidney and Bladder trouble and have not fell so ell for the past twenty years and I owe it to FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE.
