The Rnwson Comp.uiy, located nt St. Johns, Oregon, nre manufacturers of the greatest wood working ma chines 011 earth. The Riwson piteuted midline No. 4 Is n heavy ma chine designed for use in nil wood working shops for nil classes of work and is convenient beyond anything ever placed on the market. It excebi all others in durability and simplicity. b'or quick change in hand lim; it is perfect to a degree. This improved patented machine with its merits have been thoroughly tested. It is the only m'icliiiie on the mar kct which cuts wood vertically, horizontally nnd in combination move metits. It is n machine which will specially adapted to cutting window and iloor frames, shelving, pigeon holing, stair routing, cutting hand-holes hi furniture, fruit boxes, grill work and n hundred other uses.

The utility nnd vitality of this machine can' be appreciated only by old pinner men who have had to worry through life breaking the side-genr of the old- style machine, and the ten commandments while repairing It. All this is eliminated by the new chain drive. Dreak-downs do not occur, and the temptation to use emphatic expletives is avoided, the planer's musical 1mm is uninterrupted, the planer man whistles nt his work nnd the pro prietor finds nt the cud of the year the saving in repairs nnd lost time las' more than repaid the expense of installing the new chain-feed. Mr. Rnwson is n natural born inventive genius. His plant is well equipped with machinery tor doing the high class of work to be done, and he mauufaefurcs the machines himself, ns well ns invents them. If you contemplate installing n wood working plant or a machine in n plant already established, by nil means visit the factory nt St. Johns; n iiicklc will laud you nt its door from nuy point in Portland, Mr. Rnwson will take pleasure in demonstrating the machines for the benefit of all inter ested iu this class of work.

It was alt due to the suggestion of one of the most adventurous of the girls: She thought out n game of "Nymphs." When the other girls eagerly nsked for nu explana tion, she whispered the proposition to all. It was 1:40 a.' in. on the day chosen because the night was moon less. They stole along iu silent single file, until they came to a sec tion of the bank of lake Bantam hid den from the main road by rocks nnd bushes. Amid great giggling there was n general disrobing and the girls were clothed only in their classic outlines. Before essaying their swim they had come for they carried out the nymph idea iu n dance on the sands with clasped hands nnd flying hair nnd were shouting iu glee, when suddenly their joyous shouts were turned to screnms of dismay. Athwart their -well, their figures - flashed n great ray of light, which played nnd danced from their floating hair to their flashing heels. The light came from n great high power lamp on an automobile that liad crept silently nnd slowly down to the lake shore. Then the mn tor car stood still, as if spelt bound, but with the light dancing iu the wildest animation. Very wild nuimntiou took the girls too. They went shrieking in all directions, making wild and fruitless grabs for their clothing. They fell and scrambled over rocks audwem burrowing into bushes. Aud the rocks uiigallautly bruised and the naughty bushes scratched ' aud scratched. With n vibrant honk, honk, honk, the motor car suddenly dashed away. The girls sat and whim pered awhile, then painfully gath ered up their clothing, dressed aud silently stole back to ttie hotel. Never will tlicy lie uympliH again. Portland Journal. To Get Postoffice Site Congressman I.nfferty'.s bill for nu appropriation for the ptitcha.se of a site and erection of n jiostofilce building at bt. Johns has heen ap proved as to the site nnd will be passed in December. Mr. Lafferty received a letter Aug. 26, from the acting chairman of the committee on public buildings nnd grounds stating that such action would be taken. The committee will only appropriate the money at the com ing session for the purchase of a suitable site for the postoffice, and will, later on, when the receipts of the office hnve reached such n fig ure as to justify it, appropriate the money to erect the building. The letter received by Mr. I.nf ferty from ttie committee on public buildings and grounds, rends as follows: Committee 011 Public Buildings aud Grounds, House of Representa tives, Washington, D. C. Hon. A. W. Lafferty, House of Representatives. My dear Colleague; I am iu receipt of your esteemed favor of the 24th instaut, relative to your bill, H, R. 25971, for public build ing at St. Johns, Oregon. While the receipts from this postoffice nre not large enough to justify fav orable action by the committee, yet the populatjon nearly reached the 5,000 mark, and I have there fore approved your bill for a site, at this time, if it is possible to do so I shall include a buildiug in De cember, This, of course, wjll de pend upon how rapidly the postal receipts increase aud how nearly they approach the $10,000 mark by that time. As you know the omni bus bill will be reported early in December and you may be assured that a site for St. Johns will be in cluded. With best wishes, I am yours very truly, John Iy. Burnett, Acting Chairman. August 26, 1912. An article that has real merit should in time become- popular, That such is the case with Cham berlain's Cough' Remedy .has been attested by many dealers.

Council Proceedings All members assembled around the table at the regular meeting of the city council Tuesday evening, with Mayor Muck presiding. Attorney Cnrtcr, of Portland, representing Frank Smith, n prop erty owner of Burlington street, and in behalf of his client remon strated against n henvy cut iu front of Mr. Smith's property. He claimed Jhc cut damaged the prop to a grent extent nnd wns much more henvy than anticipated or need be, and nsked the serious con sideration of the council in the mat ter in au attempt to hnvc Mr. Smith reimbursed for damage to his prop erty. Mr. Smith staked 'that he had held his property nt 3000 but now $2000 would take it. Referred to the city attorney and city engin eer for report by Mnyor Muck. Unsey & Glover petitioned for chnngc of location of their saloon from its present business place to the Woodhousc building 011 Phila delphia street, claiming the site was far enough nwny from the school building to permit of its use for sa loon ptirposes. Referred to liquor license committee. Petitions signed by due hundred and thirty-six citir.cusrccoiumcudiug that the police nnd engineering de partments undergo n reduction iu the number of employes. Alder- tunn Hill stnted thnt to do so. nt this time would be false economy, that the business men almost to n man favoicd retention of four po licemen, that few of the ctltioiiers realized the amount of work devolv ing upon the policemen, uud some of them nursed a grudge, or were continually ngninst the city gov ernment. He said one twliccmau to the tooo inhabitants was the us ual rule iu small cities aud towns. Nobody, he claimed, believed two policemen nt night were too many, that they had saved their salaries in discovering incipient blazes nuil having them extinguished before great damage could be wrought. Iu the day time, he said, one police man wns not enough, becnusc the chief is often called to Portland 011 city or criminal business, is needed nt times on the outskirts of the city, mid it would nccessitnte a messenger boy 011 duty ull the time to locate him iu time of trouble. He believed in leaving well enough alone, and therefore moved thnt the iKilice force be kept nt its present complement of men. Carried unan imously. Iu the matter 01 t lie reduction 01 the engineering force, the chairman of the street committee, Davis, said that every member of the force was busy and would be until much of the large street contracts had been completed. After which it was his purpose to reduce ttie tcrcc as low as possible. On motion of Mr. Hill the matter was left In the hands of the chairman of the street committee to make reductions in the force whenever feasible, Alderman Wilcox stated that street lights were badly needed at the foot of Pittsburg street leading to the ferry, and on motion of Al derman Hill the light committee was empowered to have us many as necessary installed, Remonstrances against the pro posed improvement of Fillmore street from St. Johns avenue to Philadelphia street were rejected on motion of Alderman Hill, less than 50 per cent, of the property affect ed by the improvement being rep resented on the remonstrances, The motion carried by a narrow mar gin, however, as Aldermen Valen tine, Wilcox aud Horsinau voted uo; Aldermen Davis, Hill, Hiller aud Martin voted iu the affirmative. Alderman Horstuan said it was too late in the season to take up the work and most of the property own ers living iiere did not want the street improved. Aldermen Hill and Hiller believed it would be a bad precedent to establish to throw out a street improvement wheu the remonstrances old not total two thirds, as the charter provides. Charles Anderson said the greatest kick was because the improvement was not carried on through to Burl ington street. The improvement was cut off at Philadelphia street because the property between it and Burlington street would uot come any way near standing for the Im provement, and the dads feared to carry it through lest the whole Im provement fall through. Several remonstrances agaiust the laying of a sewer ou Fillmore street were rejected ou motion of Alder man Hiller; all yes. Ordinances providing time aud manner of constructing the sewer on Fillmore street were then unan imously passed ou motion of Alder man Hill.

Jersey street, who will buy, J The Bonviile System The following questions and an swers have been taken from the Bouvillc Squnre Deal regardiug the Bonvlllc System: (Continued from last week.) Q. Why, iu companies organized under this system, are people uot allowed to sell their stock ? Is it not Iheirs by right of ptirchnsc?. A. If n mail builds himself n home, nud then sets fire to thnt home, he is nrrested nnd pays the penalty for the same. If a man cams ten dollars nnd burns the money when he is paid, he is nlso nrrested for the nction nud com pelled to pay the penalty. Or if he earns money aud uses the same for gambling or other illegal purposes, lie is arrested nud compelled to pny n penalty for the same. Iu fact, whenever n man uses that which rightfully belongs to him for the carrying ou or forwarding of some action, movement, or purpose thnt iuti tides upon the rights, privileges, nud general safety of the public, he is, or should be, checked hi such nction. When n iiinu intentionally burns property, it is endangering the pub lic nud destroying something of vnlue. Any nction that is the di rect cause of the destruction or hin drance of progress of things relative to wealth is n criminal offense. It puts thnt much wcnlth out of exist ence or checks its creative force. Wealth is the product of energy. Due analysis of energy is labor. En ergy, Mirrounded by the proper en vironment, Is a creative power, nud does not die when the producer of the same ceases to produce, but must wear out by the erosion pf time. Energy, then, is n produc tive power. When uinti destroys that which represents energy he is destroying that which is the active power iuprodticiug wealth, One man's wealth benefits not only him self but his fellowmen as well. There fore It is n crime. Iu n stock deal under the old sys tem there is always n loser, through channels ns explained throughout these answer, Under the old sys tem, there are many nvenues left ojeu for graft ou account of the stock being transferable. This graft not only hurts the one grafted but his fellow-man ns well. There fore, if we nre able- to abide by the same rule, that what is wrong for one person iu one instance, is iu like instance wrong for another, if the nction enacted is of correspond ing likeness iu principle and its re lation to right nud wrong, it is only justice that stock transferring (gam bling) be considered and trentcd us n crime. Hence, as 11 forerunner to this hoped for termination of these unfair conditions, this system nud its supporters bind themselves by mutual agreement to further the righting oUthis great evil by exter minating the same iu their own business transactions. Q. How will the great depart ment stores of the future, organ ized under this system nud owned by the people, be a great national benefit? A. The business of the future will be enacted through the appli cation of co-opcrntivc methods. For instance: Where we have had many stores iu the past, there will only be a few- iu the future; nud these large stores will do the bulk of tiie business more profit ably to nil concerned . These stores will be owned by companies or ganized under the Bonviile system, People will, thereby, uot only saye revenue from making use of what has been waste energy in the past, but -will have greater gain by own ing an interest iu the same. The money that merchants use to dis tribute their goods through the various cities will turn iuto profit iu the hands of the investors iu a store under this system, This money, which has been going to waste in the past, will be the means of paying part of the customers' bills iu the future. Herein we have three statements based upon unde niable facts, viz.: that through the application of this system a vast amount of energy, that has been going to waste iu the past, will be utilized and benefit received there from; that through concentrated business energies both merchant and consumer will be mutually ben efited aud that it will be the direct means of reducing the cost of liv ing. , , Q. Cau a company organized uu der this system consolidate with one that is uot? A. No. Q. When is the best time to rear guulze the business world under this system? v. There is no time like the present.
