During the plunder of Troy, B. C. 1184, she took refuge in the temple of Minerva, where she was barbarously treated by Ajax. In the division of the spoils she fell to the lot of Agamemnon, who brought her home, where she excited the Jealousy of Clytemnestra. In consequence, Cassandra and Agamemnon were both murdered by Clytemnestra and her paramour. Cassandra is said to have been sur- passingly beautiful and to have had many suitors In the flourishing times of classic Troy.--Chicago Journal. Tin Can Has Helped Make America Great The epic of the tin can l Our skill In producing tin plate has developed out of our ability to supply the world with American tin cans. Cans for kerosene, tinned beef, salmon, California fruits, Hawaiian pineapple, Maryland toma- toes. We lead the world in the production of canned foods; first, because we have the raw fruits; second, because we are proof against old-world prejudices to tinned foods ; third, because time grows more valuable as we travel from east to west, i the assertion of a writer in The Nation's Business. Time means nothing to the oriental, and the typical German hausfrau spends a good part of the day in the kitchen over her pots and pans. The ability to Impro- vise a meal out of tinned foods an- swers to the demand for short cuts In our swift-moving, complex western life. The era of abbreviation! "Slow," as our forefathers knew the term Is not only out of fashion, but we shorten the word itself by 25 per cent. As to the tin can, be it known that tin plate Is nothing more than paper-thin sheet iron which our steel companies turn out by the thousands of square feet. These sheets are given a bath in molt- en tin and are thus presented to the world under the bright and shining as- pect of tin plate. In casting about for a container for preserved and con- centrated foods the world was smart enough to discover that tin does not tarnish in the air and is proof agaizt meat, fruit and vegetable acids.

"If It Comes From Streissguth's It Must Be Good" Both Phones -:- | [ -:- Both Phones EVERETT, WASHINGTON IN THERED WITH I THREE RECEIVERS / Great Rlroad of 10,000 Miles of Min Track Insolvent. In Many Things Most Modern Line in World Pioneer among western railroads powerful and prosperous for many years in the mid-northwest, tapping all the great cities through the re- gions it reaches, with a name to con- jure with among railroad.s, this once great artery of commerce is now "in the hands of 'the United States courts with three receivers adminis, toting its affairs. It's almost cruelty to reputatio to cite its name---Chi- cago, Milvaukee & St. Paul Railway --with its almost 200 miles of elec- trically equipped main line, covering four mountain ranges, and now so poor in purse as not able to pay its debts, and therel)y hangs a tale--- you tell--for it's one of the modern i mysteries of American railroading. Some will answer, too many ,ail- road's, some will say too much stock obbing, and maybe there are other things co-responsible for the plight <xf the old Mlwaukee, poor manage- ment during latter years of which H. E. Byram was the president and yet he is relieved from the charge of such mediocrity be'ause he has been retained as chief of the receiver trio, being first named in the official an- muneemen of the receivership. Following is the official announce, merit of this stupendous change that has come to a once rich corporation that insofar as railways are con- cerned, physically, is the best boday it ever has been and yet so poor as to be without reverence, worse still, encumbered with three receivers: "Tacoma, Wash, March 18th.
