Edwaki) Beauprc, an 8-foot Canad ian giant, is looking fir a 7-font bride in order lliitt lie can win a priz.j of 100,000 iranc8 left by a French nobleinati to be given to the finest pair of giants mar lied each year in France, lnn't tlicrea JrVtbf jot lirl of the retjUBile luntli ? A youthful graduate of the Atrricu! : tural College at Corvallis and his bride were louring in the East. When visit- in; a town in Michigan, they passed an - (turtle house which had a lower, making it look a little like a chinch . "I wor.--ler what cnurcli that u," she ii quired. He replied, after reading Ihe sin, "De luge, No. 3," "I mess it must he the Third Baptist." It is reported that there is much ill-ner-s among the Boer prisoners brought to Bermuda. 1! th s is true it is unfor tnnale that tliere men from high alti tudes are t.) I.e cluHely conlined at sea level in a ciiinate here British sailori e not permitted to remain in summer aud where the cliil.lrjn of whiti resi deuts are habitually seat to Cami-U for their health. This Standard Oil money and brains control, practically .all the suit produc tion of this country. The National Salt Company is the corporate name under which it operates. And not content with a monopoly of the homo market by the fostering uid of atarifrdutj.it has formed a combination with foreign companies to contnl the entire salt trade of the world. Wis think the Chautauqiii in.iu.ign tent ma le a m.s'ake when it let the job of piloting in booklets ta Port land house. While the assembly de pends pa.tly on outside patronage its main patronage, stockholders and the business men who advertise In the booklet come from Oregon City, The Portland papers ate paid a hundred or (odo'lars a year f ir advertising, while the Oregon City papers have advertised Ihe assembly gratis. Skvkrai, generations of factory slaves fcave destroyed Hiiti h manhood Eng lmd now has capitalists but will never gain have soldi, rs the eqirM of Crom well's Ironsides. From the results of Kcculiing for the Boer war, Arnold White, an Epglish critic, has formtd the conclusion that the inhabitants of llio Miitit.li InleB are degenerating phy sically. In the Manchester district lone SO W out of 11,000 men who offered themselves fur military service were cer titled unt't to endure a soldier's life. IsS.mih vfr'ci week by week the British death roll lengthens. Week by week Ihe army ivpoits no prorcis. Week by wee' the disafft'ctiou among 'the. loyalists in Sviuih Africa grows. And ejk by week, with a monotonous and Baldening steadiness, the six and a quarter millions are taken from the yocket of the British tuxpiyer. In this Untisli crisis we b.tvd apparently a practical example of the old problem! It an irrcsiatahl j force meets an immov able body, what will happen? In the scientific langu;ige of the day, Ihe electron has assumed an Important flace. It is thus d. 'lined by Pr. Oliver J, Lodge: An atom is ordinarily asso ciated with a charge and tore is ' re quired to separate the charge from the atom, Tbe atonrc charge, when sep. rated, is called an electron. In an electrolyte i. e., a suMtnee decom fisel by an electric current there is a , fcoJily transfer of atom with their charges; in a metallic conductor the charges are handed on, as electrons from atom to atom. In the discharge through kighly rarefied gases the electric current feui its most simple form, "for here , theie ia a flow of electrons traveling by themselves, of disembodied charges or , electric ghosts." Electrons are the fast est moving of all known terrestrial ob jects, their speed being one-tenth that flight, which la 186,300 miles per tec ad. J. PiEKPONT Morcia.V John D. Koikefeller, or any of a half dozen men tliat could be named, have mare real in fluence in the govt rn merit than the sta'e of Virginia, or than one half dozen states, leaving out New Yorl?, bhio, Pennsylvania and Illinois. And yet these men derive their power lrom the ownership and control of things that are no more properly the subjects of such ownership than the air, or the water of our rinra. It is just" as irra tional to permit two men to control the fuel supply of (he country as it would be to permit them to control the iT or waler supply, at their own dictation. Ex Sknatob Foraker d dares in strident tones of the "brave, heroic, gallant" ne groes, that "as they have shared our la bars and jv-rils bo must they share our rewards," and until these era secured "there must not bo any restoration of tlie democratic party to power." Very good ; the republicans have controlled the state of Ohio absolutely for the last ten years; now many negroes have they rawarJed witli office? President c Kinlcy has the appointing power. How many of the "brave, heroic, gallant" colored men of the iSuiiili has he a mitted to th rewards of victory since he was elected for a second lerm? N. Y. IVu.ll. A dktkkminkd effort will be made to secure the passage by the next conaieas of a law which will provide for some ef fective method ol disclosing tbe actual constituents of goods sold as woolen gooJs. This is a thing which should have been attended .to long ago. The growing use of shoddy and cotton in goods Bold aa genuine ad-wool has been increasing at such a rate in the past ten years as to veiy materially reduce the amount of wool used. The fraud is one which can be prevented in no ether way, apparently, than be national supervis ion. The manufacturers claim that cotton-woolen mixed goods are bet er than those inude wholly of wool. .If this is so nobody will be hurt by a law which will pievcnt Hie sale of mixed goods as a 1-wool goods. It, is pretty certain, how ever, thafctiie claim of the manuh-ciur-e s o.' mixed goods is not, wholly true, and that the fraud n jiires both grower,, of wool and purchasers of mixed goods sold as all-Hool goods Oregon Agri culturist, l'oilland. BOIRI) AFRAID OFPORTER. Hornets' 2feM Stirred Up A mot g G. O. I. Leaders by Courier Herald Prtpoxltion.

The county would thus save over s.wo thirds, or $2000, by ai cipting our bid of $1000. Itas very evident that the hoard did not wmtusto have Ihe job, although John Lwellen was in favor of it, mid the only excuse it had was that each item idiould he' bid on separately. After our hid had been filed and opened they permitted Porter to put in a hid in which lie atrree I to do work "a cheap as tint furnished other counties," ami was, in fact, no bid at all, but it gitvrt t ie board a proiense for laying the matter over and ordering bids advertised for. Did we irot a"fair Bhake?" Is there any use bidding on a proposi tion that is tied up politically? The tax pi vers are not taken into consideration i t ail The matter stands thus: One man with a pull holds ajclub overanother with aspirations. She Didn't Wear a Mask.

In training, much fctress is laid upoii diet; care ful attention to the quantity and quality of the food eat en, with regularity of meals. That is the secret of strength for every man. No man can be stronger than his stomach. The careless and irregular eating, of business men, causes disease of the stomach and its allied organs of digestion and nutrition. There can be no sound health until these diseases are cured. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures diseases.of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, and enables the body to be built tip into vig orous health by the assimilation of the nutrition extracted from food. "I was taken with the (rrippe, which resulted in heart nnd stomach trouble," writes Mr. T. R. Caudill, of Montland, Alleghany Co., N. C. I was unable to do anything a Rood part of the time. I wrote to Dr. Pierce about my condition, having full confidence in his medicine. He ad vised me to take his 'Golden Medical Discovery,' which I did. Before I hHd finished the second bottle I began to feel better. I have used nearly six bottles. I feel thankful to God for the bene fit I have received from Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery. I can highly recommend it to all persons as a good and safe medicine." Dr. Pierce's Pellets cure constipation.
