$500 REWARD FOR WOMEN
y.HO CANNOT BB CURED.
So uniformly successful has Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription proven in all forms
of Female Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling
of Womb, and Leucorrhea, that, after over
a third of a century's experience in curing
the worst cases of these distressing and
debilitating ailments, Dr. Pierce now feels
fully warranted in offering to pay $500 in
oash for any caae of these diseases which
he cannot cure.
It Stands AU)NE. The "Favorite Pre
scription " stands alone, as the . one and
only remedy for these distressingly com
son forms of weakness, possessed of such
positively specific curative properties as to
warrant its makers in proposing, and
binding themselves to forfeit, as the pro
prietors of that wonderful remedy here
by do, to pay the sum of $500 In legal
money of the United States in any case of
the above diseases in which after a fair
and reasonable trial of oar tnatment, we
fcil to cure. No other medicine for
the cure of woman's peculiar ailments ia
backed by such a remarkable guarantee ;
no other medicine for woman's ills is pos
sessed of the unparalleled curative prop
erties that would warrant its manufacturers
la making such an offer ; no other remedy
has such a record of cure on which to base
t a remarkable oner.

We publish the following clipping from
the Thorp Oourier of Wisconsin in order
that all of the friends of Mr, Tufts in
this county may know the kind of man
who bas been called to his last reward :
"William B. Tufts, the pioneer mer
chant of Withee, Wis., died of a com
plication of diseases at his home in that
village on Monday, Aug 24, 1903, aged
51 years and 6 months. Mr. Tufts was
born at Manitowoc, Wis., on Feb. 19th
1852. and was united in marriage with
Anna McLeod in 1873. In 1874 he tame
to Unity and in 1877 took chargeof J).
J. Spalding's farm in the town of tlixon.
Three years later purchasing a small
general store at Witbee station. His
business venture proved a great success
and for manj years he carried on a pros
perous business in tbe mercantile line.
Mr. Tufts was a genial, whole-souled,
public-spirited citizen, a friend to every
one, and liberal to an, the poor especi
ally. His wile died about nine years
ago, but about tour years ago lie again
took a wile, and he leaves to mourn ins
untimely death a widow, and an infant
son, and four children by his first wife,
William U., Daniel A., John A. and Es
ther A., all residents of Withee. Mr.
Tufts served as town chairman and post
master of Witbee for many years, and
also served one term as sheriff of Clark
county Thorp Courier.
W.B Tufts was a member ot UoiDy
Lodge No. 324, 1. 0. 0. F. from away
back in the early seventies and retained
his membership up to the time ot bis
death. Nobis Grand Richard Bracht,

Can Not Lawfully Be Killed
Some misapprehension seems to exist
as to the beginning of the open season
for tbe killingoi China pheasants in this
valley. The law does not expire or
rather tbe open season does not begin
until the first day of October and anyone
who kil s China pheasants, native pbeas-J
ants or quails betore tnat time aoes so in
violation of the law. The word from the
country is that pheasants and quail are
very numerous and just as soon as the
open season begin there will be a big
rush by Oregon City's sports and "Nim
rods" to the fields and the rolling valleys
of Clackamas ccuntv. Oregon City has
more good dot's and fine guns than any
town in the state and they will be put to
good use within a very short time''

What Is Life?
In the last analysis nobody knows, but
we do know that it is under strict law;
, Abuse that law even slightly, pain re

He held quite a levee in the office of
