heart causing death. J. E. Steams,

The Washington News Bureau says in
a dispatch to the Observer today:
"Washington. Feb. 27. But one of the
Oregon building measures has been adopt
ed, although by pressing the La Grande
proposition strenuously now. Senator Ful
ton hopes to have it so far advanced that
it will be readily accepted at the next sess
ion. The necessity of struggling hard
and long in appropriation work is more
apparent now than at any time in the
history of the Senate."
Dr. C. E. Hawke and family will leave
in the morning for Artesia. New Mexico,
where the doctor goes for the benefit of
his health. During the few months they
have made (heir home in this city they
have many friends who are indeed sorry
to see them leave. Dr. Hawke came to
this city with the hope that his health
would be benefited by the change but
found that a warmer climate was neces
sary. This summer he will camp out and
if conditions are such to warrant the
move, will establish himself and pract
ice his profession.
STRUGGLE fOR APPROPRIATION
Washington Feb. 27 After being
given positive assurances that no emer
gency river and harbor appropriation
would be permitted at this session of
Congress, Senator Fulton put .in two
amendments for the Sundry . Civil Bill,
for the Columbia river jetty and for the
coast dredging plant to be used in har
bors to the south of the Colmbia. Warn
ing has been given that a severe struggle
may be expected, for the retrenchment
spirit is growing rapidly this session, and
numerous interests clamor for recogni

LOCATED TOR Kf EPS
Mr. Joe Woods is again a Grande
Ronder for keeps. ' There is no mistake
about it this time. For the past twenty
years Joe has had a notion in his head
that there might be other places as good
or better than this, but never had the nerve
to get out and look that other land up un- j
til thie summer. A few weeks ago he
made a trip to Kansas City and stopped
off at every water tank and cross toad j
along the line of travel, but though he
was in earnest and wanted to find some
thing better, he failed. Therefore he has
returned, purchased the Red Front Livery
Stable from Wm. Smith, also a lot in the
cemetery and has decided to stay right
here as long as he stays on top of the
earth. In fact he is not content to leave
the Grande Ronde valley when he is
planted six feet under the sod, as is evi
denced by the cemetery purchase. Joe
has surrounded himself with a bunch of
first class livery stock and expects to stay
here and grow up with the country. .. Mr.
Woods was accompanied on his trip East
by Mr. T. N. Profflt, of Baker City, who
certainly set a pace which kept Joe mov
ing to keep up, but anyone who knowe
Joe will feel certain that he was able to
keep in sight In fact while this happy
pair started off in a stock train, this mode
too slow, and the steers were left behind
and the gentlemen engaged transporta
tion on the Fast Mail and proceeded east
ward at a more rapid rate. Mr. Profflt
played fair in every respect with but one
exception. Those who are intimately ac
quainted with Mr. Woods have detected a
slight impediment in his speech, and Mr.
Profflt was ungentlemanly enough to take
advantage of this and headed In on him
on several occasions, much to Joe's dis
comforture. Still there were times when
Tom wished his face had not worked so
fast but that is another story and is best
told by the gentlemen themselves
CHILDREN POSTURAL DETECTS
Dr. George M. Gould in the "Medical
Record," declares: "There is probably
not a school desk in all the world con
structed upon physiological principles.
Think of. the millions of morbidly right
shoulders of the millions of necks and
backs thus twisted and wrenched WITH
ALL RESULTANT DISEASE THERE
Dr. Gould's article does more than
bring this wrong to public notice. It
justifies the Osteopathic argument that
disease result from deformities of the
bony framework. In connection with the
bony framework, v In connection with
the ever lengthening school year, it ac
counts for the increasing number of
children with glasses, with anaemia, with
the many and persistent organio diseases.
This is what- the Osteopaths are preach
ing, and is, in fact the very bases of I
the system; but here it is from the 01 d

less than Osteopathic "lessons," mis
