Very Annoying to Some People.
People that are known to be weak and
sickly, by their neighbors, are asked the
question every day whether they are
feeling better. Do you feel stronger?
Are you gaining flesh? Their friends
know if they are gaining flesh, it is one
of the sure signs of returning health.
If they can only get a remedy that will
make solid, healthy flesh, recovery is
assured. People with nervous troubles,
loss of flesh and strength, no ambition,
languid and always tired, have thin
watery blood. The food they e&t does
not nourish them, it does not make
blood. If after eAch meal thev would

Recently an automobile accident ont

Messrs. Mann and Forsythe, living
about two miles northeast of Oregon
City, recently cut down a tree no, they
tried to cut down a tree. It must be ad
mitted that they are not the first men
who ever tried to cut down a tree, but
perhaps they are not the first who ever
failed to accomplish their object for the
sax-e reason It was a large tree, some
six or seven feet in diameter. The two
men sawed, and sweat, and swo , the
last may not be true, so it is just as well
not to say it. The saw dragged its
weary length back and forth through
the six feet of solid fir, the day wore on
and the saw-teeth wore off, but the tree
gave no sign of falling. It did noc even
stagger. At length the tree was cut
through to within a few inches, but it
obeyed St. Paul's injunction, "be stead.
last." Wedges were inserted, but tbe
tree never budged ; and there it stands
yet, or at least it still stood, and also
stood still at last reports. Some people
think the strange phenomenon a result
of witchcraft; others suppose that chance
has placed the center of gravitation ex
actly over the center of the basal sup
port, so that any motion whatever in
any direction whichever has a tendency
to elevate tbe center of mass, or words
to that effect. But tbe most reasonable
suggestion is this : Keeping in mind
the size of the tree, the probable dull
ness of tne saw, and the wonderfully
fertile soil and invigorating climate of
Oregon, it seems quite possible that the
stump and that portion of the trunk
which were first cut apart, grew togetner
again before tbe opposite side of the
tree was reached. Stranger things than
that are said to have happened In Ore
gon. Advertised Letters.

Triumphs of Modern Surgery.
Wondeiful things are done for the hu
man body by surgery. Organs are taken
ontsand scraped and polished and put
back, or they may be removed entirely;
bones ara spliced; pipes take the
place of diseased sections of veins; anti
septic dressings are applied to wounds,
bruises, burns and like injuries before
Inflammation sets in, which causes
them to heal without maturation and
in one-third the time required by the old
treatment. Chamberlain's Pain Balm
acts on this same principle. It is aa an
tiseptic and when applied to such injur,
ies, causes them to heal very quickly.
It also allays the pain and soreness.
Keep a bottle of Pain Balm in your home
and it will save you time and money,
not to mention the inconvenience and
suffering which such injuries entail. For
