RECENT DOINGS OF THE
In lhat Thriving Neighborhood,
We recently spent a very pleasant time
mingling with the people of the thriving
little city of Canby. Canby is only ten

raoBt beautiful parts of the county.
The broad, level farms about the village
sweeping away to the Willamette on

modious and comfortable homes of the
rural population, are monuments to the
We made the acquaintance of Mr.
Rosekrans, of the firm of Carlton &
Rosekrans, and found him to be a very
pleasant gentleman indeed. The firm
of Carlton & Rosekrans is one of ti e
largest country firms in the ccunty and
the store would do credit to a town much
larger than the town of Canby.
Mr. Andrew Kocher is the .leading
hardware man and is doing a big busi
ness. There are a number of Bmaller
store engaged in different lines of
business. The town boasts of three

A new sidewalk has been ordered built
by the city council in front of Zollnei's

caused it to get very muddy there and
others places in the streets of Canby.
A citizen's meeting' has .been called
for November 10, to place in nomination
our counciluien for two years and a

Some one met with a bad runaway ac

buggy which was attached to the run

to know who the party was.

GEORGE C. BROWNELL
Will Be President of the Oregon
Honors voming Miyrit Along for
the Oregon City Statesman,
It seems now to be almost a certainty
that George C. Brownell will be elected
Preaident of the Oregon Senate which
convenes at Saler. in January. Both
Senators Mitchell and Simon have de
clared for Brownell for the place and
that seems to settle the matter for g iod
and all. Mr. Brownell just at the pres
ent time is the most prominent figure in
Clackamas county politics. He will en
ter upon his third term as Senator from
this county the first of January. Mr.
Brownell is an ardent republican and
doubts very much whether a democrat
will get to heaven. At least all of the
front seats will be reserved for the Re-

publican cohorts. Aside from his poli
t ci, whicl: Hie ibout as bad as ih.y
well could he, from a Democratic stand
point, the Hon. Brownell is a pleasant
and genial gentleman and one whom it
is a pleasu e to meet. We are glad to see
him win this fight as it means that
honors come to our republican townsmar.
GtorgeC. Brownell came to Oregon
City from Kansas twelve years ago. He
has been in the Senate at Salem eyer
since. He preempted a seat in the, Sen
ate at the same time that he opened a law
office in Oregon City and has held on to
his Senatorial toga as tightly as he has
held down his law practice. Mr. Brow
nell learned to be a politician in Kan
sas. There politics and grasshoppers
are indigenous to the soil. There are
very U w things in the political game
that he don't know. A good stumper, an
excellent organizer a smooth mixer he
has kept the boys in Clackamas guessing
for about a dozen years and if" them "fel
lows down at Salem this winter leave
the senatorial toga lying around loose
over night Hon. George Biownell'will
walk off with it, sure as "gun is iron."
Well it is no fight of "ourn," and we
don't intend to loose any sleep about
the matter or pull "anybody's hair; but
we wish the honorable Clackamas
county senatorf would jet something
that would suit him and keep him out
of politics in this county for a year or
l,wa. We are going to have a right in
teresting local "scrap" heie politically
in about twenty months. Stranger
things have happened than that old
Clackamas might swing back to her
early traditions;Jand elect a Democratic
ticket from top to bottom or as we used to
say in Kentucky fiom "eend to cenri."
In the meantime we wish our neighbor
goodluck and a good time and may lij be
able to get away with a goodly portion
of the "loaves and fishes." The best
we Democrats can do is to stand off and
look on. The pie counter is not for us
yet awhile. There is an old saying down
South however that we believe applies
in this case "Every dog has his days,"
and we think it is about our turn at the
William Bliss when president of the
Boston and Albany railroad was once
called before the railroad committee of
the Massachusetts legislature to testi
fy on trutllc mutters, and a young
member who was serving his first
term undertook to examine him.
"I want you to tell me how much it
costs to haul a freight car from Boston
to Springfield," said the member.
"I don't know," replied Mr. Bliss.
"You don't know?"
"That was the answer I gave."
"What are you, anyway?"
"The Boston and Albany railroad."
"Well, sir," began the legislator In
rising voice, "If you are William Bliss,
president of the Boston and Albany
railroad, nud you don't know what it
costs to haul freight from Boston to
Springfield, who hi the name of heav
en does know?"
"No one that I know unless It Is a
member of the Massachusetts legisla
ture who Is serving his first term."
Another member continued the ex
amination. His Life in Peril.

pieces " writes Alfred Bee, of Welfare,
Tex., "biliousness and a lame back
had made life a burden. I couklu't eat

"I suffered from female weakness for five
months," writes Miss Belle Hearicb, of Nye,
Putnam Co., W. Va. "I was treated by a good
physician but he never seemed to do me any
good, I wrote to Dr. R. V, Pierce for advice,
which I received, telling me to take his ' Favor

my health was much improved. It has contin

The Best Remedy for Croup.
From the Atchinson, Kan., Daily Globe.
This is the season w hen the woman
who knows the beet remedies for croup
is in demands in every neighborhood.
One of the most terrible things in the
world is to be awakened in the middle of
the night by a whoop from one of
the children. The croup remedies are
almost as sure to be lost, in case of
croup, as a revolver is sure to he lost in
case of burglars. There used to be an
oklfashioned remedy for croup, known
as hive syrup and tolu, but some modern
mothers say that Chamberlain's Cougn
Remedy is better, and does not cost so
much. It causes the patient to "throw
up the phlegm" quicker, and gives relief
iu a shorter time, Give this remedy as
soon as the croupy cough appears and
it will prevent the attack. It never
f alls and is pleasant and safe "to take.
