"'"'"'I uenerai L,rawtord has ren
dered an opinion holding that it is mar.d
tory upon county courts to appoint
county nealth orbcers under the provi
sions of the act of 905. That act de
clares that the county judge and com
missioners shall constitute a county
board of health and shall employ a sec
retary, who myst be a graduate of a re
putable medical college and a regularly
licensed physician. The secretary shall
be the health officer of the board and
shall receive from the county !quarterly
X)i cents per capita for the population of
the county up to 50,000 people, the pop
ulation being determined by multiplying
the number of children of school age by
At this compensation will amount to
6 cents per capit per year, the office
craated bv Utat act will be desirable
one in a number of counties of the state.
The same act requires the city council of
every incorporated town to employ a
health officer at the same rate of com
pensation. No county can pay its health officer
less than $100 a year, and no city or
town less than $10. So far none of the
counties seem to have paid any attention
to the law, but as this opinion was rend
ered at the request of the secretary of
stats and board of health, it is probable
that county courts will be' compelled to
Attorney General Crawford says that
mandamus proceedings can be brought to
compel county courts to act the law.
The duty of the health officer is to keep
vital statistics, see that regulations of the
state board of health are observed, and
look after the general health conditions
of the, county or city.
WH1 LICENSE ITINERANTS
Upon a petition presented to the county
court of Umatilla county, the court has
made the following order:
' "It is therefore hereby ordered and ad
judged by the court that the license fee
which shall hereafter by paid by peddlers,
hawkers and itinerant vendors who may
desire to peddle, hawk, vend or sell any
stoves, ranges, wagons, carriages, buggies,
carts, surreys or other kinds of four
wheeled or two wheeled vehicles or ' fan
ning mills or similar goods, wares or mer
chandise within Umatilla county, Oregon,
be and is hereby fixed at thesum of $500
psr calendar year, and that a license
shall not be issued for a shorter or other
period than one year.
It is further ordered and adjudged by
the court that license fee which shall
hereafter be paid by peddlers, . hawkers
and itinerant vendors who may desire to
peddle, hawk, vend or sell any goods,
wares or merchandise except those sell
ing products, shall be fixed at the sum of
$10 per quarter; and that no license shall
be issued for less than one quarter."
This act should bs commended by the
pple of Umatilla county as the order of
tie court will doubtless do much towards
protecting ths citizens of the county from
ths grafting peddlers and fakirs. The
county- court of Union county would
doubtless maks a hit with our people if
they would adopt the same measure. It
would not only protect the general class
cf people but our merchants as well.
STOCK SHIPMENTS .
Several stock shipments wsrs made from
the local yards this week to Portland
Ths shipments consisted principally of

county. On Monday M. E. Hotehkiss, of

Hector McDonald and W. A. Wren, of
Wallowa, shipped a carload of fins dra t
horses Tuesday to Portlaud, and the fol
lowing day Kiddie Bros, shipped a carload

A MODERN MIRACLE
"Tiuly miraculous seemed ths recovery
of Mrs. Mollis Holt of this place." writes
J. 0. R. Hooper. Woodford. Tenn.,' "sht
was so wasted by coughing up pus fron
her lungs. : Doctors declared her end so
near that her family had watched by her
bed-side forty-eight hours; when, at m
urgent request Dr. King's New Discover;
was given her, and with the astonishing
result that improvement began, and con
tinued until she finally completely recov
ered, and is a healthy woman today.'
