Ciikrkyvii.le, Sept. 23. Glad to see
neighbor Corey at his ranch again. His
little girl, whoa month ago shattered a bone
of the left arm by being thrown from the
buggy, is looking well, recovering steadily,
and will soon outgrow it. Mrs. Corey how
ever is less fortunate and may feel for many
months the effects of her strains and
bruises. The runaway which injured the
mother and little oaughter came about in
this way: Mr. Corey alighted to water his
mare, but rinding the animal hindered by
the new bridle, kindly took the bit from
her mouth. Just then a huge dog more
thirsty than polite rushed forward to get a
share of the water. Thia startled the mare
and caused her to run.
A petition to the legislature asking that a
portion of this county lying north of Clack

shrewdly inoure : Supposing that we pay a
part of the county debt, shall we be allowed
. to put the Oregon City bridge or the court
house iu our pocket when we go? Don't
worry, boys. We are not going yet.

Protection means quarantine against
the seeds of death to American Indus

Free Trade, sailing nnder th English
flag, with J. Bull as captain and Urover
Cleveland as pilot.
It ia aa Important to the Industrial and
commercial health of the nation that

Protection Island and prevented from
lauding her passenger and cargo aa 11
ia to its physical health that the Moravia
should lie held down the harltor and
prevented from scattering the cholera
germs anion ; our rxopl.
The free trade bacillus is known to lm
deadly to the prosperity of every conn
try where it obtains a foothold. The
Colxlen club is Its place of original in
cubation, and aa a dent rover of Ameri
can manufactures its ravage, if it ever
gains an entrance to this country, will
lie terrible. In IStfl. under what was
known as th Walker tariff, the llritih
commercial cholera broke out "in our
midst," and from that date on for a long
pen,Hl the mortality among our leading
industries was grout.
The usual symptoms of this dreaded
scourge of American business were rap
idly developed. The pulse of trade grew
steadily feebler, paralysis of the nerve
centers of business followed and iu IS'iT
the whole industrial aud commercial
system, sun lmrgcd with the British free
trade bacilli, collapsed with a financial
crash that will always remain among
the darkest memories of our history.
Again w are threatened with a siiul
!r visitation of this fearful plague.
The Democratic party is full of the Colv
denite germs, and fnuikly avows its
purjHwe to abolish the M, Kmley quaran
tine station mid ullow the Liriti-tii "free
trade" ship, with the s:itnn old com
mercial cholera on In vii nl. to pass Pro
tect ion island unmolested.
If this ship that has initial to its mast
head the legend, "Death to American
industries," ia uot halted by the imivera
tive voice of the people at the pulls next
November, there is a sorry time ahead
for them. The "pestilence that walkelh
by night" ia not uiore deudly to hnuuui
life than a "tariff for revenue only"
will be to both capital and latvor.
The British press may well watch
with eager and hopeful interest th
Democratic effort to break down the
protective system, which bus for thirty
years served as a most effective, quaran
tine against theinvasiou of British cheap
goods, made by British cheap labor,
working for British cheap wages. It
means renewed vitality and vigor fo
British industries if this country shall
elect Orover Cleveland, with a mandate
to let down the tariff bars and let in the
flood of foreign panperconijietition npon
American factories aud workshops ami
the working people employed therein.
The American workingmen, however,
can hold the free trade plague at tvay if
they choose. The quarantine station
will not be abandoned if they say that
it shall not be. Protection island ia in
their hands. They can halt the British
ship, with its pestilential doctrine that
a protective tariff is unconstitutional, if
they determine to do it. Self preserva
tion is nature's first law, and of course
they will maintain the quarantine that
defends their wages, their homes and
their families. New York Recorder.

IF YOU WISH TO AVOID THE TWIN DRUGS,
ALUM AND AMMONIA
Dr. H. Endemann, for twelve years chemist of the
New York Board of Health, in his paper read before the
American Chemical Society at Washington, in October,
1891, states that an ammonia baking powder acts on the
gluten of the flour, altering its chemical properties, and
cites numerous high authorities to prove its injurious
effect on the stomach and kidneys.
Liebig the great chemist, says: "The use of alum in
bread is very injurious, and it is very apt to disorder
the stomach and occasion acidity and dyspepsia."
The following powders are known to contain either
ammonia or alum or both: Jtoyal, Chicago Yeast, Calumet,
