This Great Ilalr Grower Now Sold All
What do you think of the " liberal
proposition that the Glroux Mfg. Co.
of BufTalo, N.. Y., American makers of
Parisian Same are putting up to the
readers of the Observer.
They know; they are absolutely
certain that they have the only real
hair grower, beautifler and dandruff
germ destroyer on the market today,
and knowing this they have requested
the Newlin, Drug1 Co. to Bta'e to ev
. ery reader of the Observer and to ev
ery person living in La Grande and
vicinity that they guarantee Parisian
Sage to remove every trace of dand
ruff; to stop falling hair and Itching
scalp, or money back.
And everyone who rends this im
portant announcement, should know
that Parislan'RaSe makes hair grow,
not only abundantly, butglves it that
lustrous appearance that nil desire.
Women will find Parisian Sage the
most refreshing and ideal hair, dress
ing free from stickiness or urease.
Largo bottle GO cents at the Newlin
Drug Co. and druggists everywhere.
"I have used Parisian Sage for
some time and think it has no equal
as a hair beautifler and scalp clean
er. No more dandruff or faded balr,
thanks to Parisian Sago." Mrs. Will

one of the most interesting features
of the trial thus far. ; Attorney Chaj.
E. Cochran who is counsel for the
defense was placed upon the witness
stand and narrated how upon a trip
to Elgin for the purpose of seeing
the ipolnt where the murder was com
mitted, he and Sam Parker, father of
the accused, discovered a rusty re
volver in the roadway at a point very
near where the tragedy occurred last
August., The description was minute
in every detail as the witness was
carried through a Berles of question
ing by Attorney T. H. Crawford, also
attorney for the defense. ,
When the cross-questioning took
place Rand and Ivanhoe were par
ticular that nothfng was overlooked.
It was evident that the defense was
desirous of showlpg that Porter had
a gun. on the eventful evening when
he was shot by Jess Parker and that
the gun found In the road was tho
same identical weapon, which would
indeed be a stron proof that Jess
Parker was forced to shoot in self
defense an dafter shooting Porter the
latter dropped the gun in the road
where it had laid until discovered by
Sam Parker and C E. Cochran sev
eral days later. ." : .
To combat this evidence Rand In
sisted that the autompbHe driven by
Sam Parker was a- Ford machine
where the driver sits on the left side,
that the machlue had to be cranked
before starting and various other
things which might be taken to mean
that the revolver could have very eas
ily have fallen from the pocket of
Sam Parker and burled itself In the
dUBt. ... .' ; .
To call this evidence tho in
'wrapt attention and it may have con
siderable weight when the time comes
for a general summing up of the trial.
Biggs Was not Sure. -A
, witness by the name of Biggs
had probably the hardest timo of any
one when he was called to give ex
pert testimony, yet would not swear
positively the kind of a gun Mr. Por
ter carried when the latter exhibited
It to Mm in the engine room of the
Elgin Flour mills. Biggs admitted
that he had worked on guns of dif
ferent makes for many yearB, that, be
felt he knew something ahnut thn
mechanism of firearms, yet ' after
Rand and Ivanhoe had finished with
him It was a mooted question whe
ther a Smith & Wesson.
Johnson or a Harrington revolver
could be distinguished one from the
omer unless the strictest attention be
paid to detail. . 1 . . -
Ha was Shown the mm fnnnrt'tn tha
highway. After careful deliberation
he stated the barrel of said gun had
been sawed off but while he thought
it resembled the gun owned by Mr.
Porter he was not very sure of it l .

the young men as hosts showed home
training in the role of cheta. Several
courses of toothsome vlana were dish

season that will eclipse all others.
