The three-year old bov of J. A. John
son, of Lynn Center, 111, is subject to at
tacks ot croup. Mr. Johnson says he is
satisfied that the timely use of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy, during a severe
attack, saved his little boy's life. He is
in the drug business, a member of the
firm of Johnson Eroa. of that place; and
they handle a great many patent medi
cines for throat and lung diseases. He
had all these to chose from, and skilled
physicians ready to respond to his call,
but selected this remedy for use in his
own family at a time when his child's
life was in danger, because he knew it
to be superior to any other, and famous
the country over for its cures of croup.
Mr. Johnson says this is the best selling
cough medicine they handle, and that it
gives splendid satisfaction in all cases.

Messrs. Bittner and Harris, the special
committee appointed to look after the
improvement of Main street, between
Twefth and Fourteenth streets, reported
that it would require 200 yards of
crushed rock and foO worth of labor to
put tne street in proper condition, 30
yards of the rock and $10 of the labor
account being the amount belonging to
the East Side Railway Company and
which they had agteed to pay. An ordi
nance authorizing the improvement sug
gested, provided the rock could be pur
chased at a cct not exceeding $1.25 per
yard, was ordered published.
George C. Brownell appeared before
the council to protest against the passage
of subdivisions 4 and 5 of section 5, of an
ordinance imposing a license of $50 a
year on drug stores, grocery stores and
restaurants that sell liquros, claiming
the council was exceeding the authority
conferred upon it by the charter, which
made the license $400 per year for these
privileges. The saloon men were also
present and made a strong protest
against the licensing of these places.
The Mayor stated that a delegation of
ministers had waited upon him and
objected to licensing grocery stores and
after considerable spirited discussion in
which all bands took part, the offending
subdivisions were stricken from the or
dinance. The mayor called attention to the fact
that the road running on the North side
of Abernethy creek, connecting north
Main street with the Parkplace county
road had been closed up and recommen
ded that the city open the road to the
public and make whatever repairs were
necessary. The matter was referred to
the committe . on streets and public
property with power to act.
Judges and clerks for the city election
to be held the first Monday in December

How to Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
sediment or settling indicates an un
healthy conditions of the kidneys.
When urine stains liner.it is evidence of
kidney trouble. Too frequent desire to
urinate or pain in the back, is also con
vincing proof that the kidneys and blad
der are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain in the
back, kidneys liver, bladder and every
part of the urinary passages. It corrects
inability to hold urine and scalding pain
in passing it, or bad effects following use
of liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes
that unpleasant necessity of being com
pelled to get up many times during the
night to urinate. The mild and the ex
traordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest lor its
wonderful cures of the most distressing
cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. Sold hy druggists,
price fifty cents and one dollar. You
may have a sample bdttle and pamphlet
both sent by mail. Mention Okkqon
City Entkbitihb and send your address
to Dr. Kilmer A Co., Binghamton, N. Y.

of the United States senate, was in
Oregon City Friday visiting old-time
friends and acquaintances. An evidence
of Mr. Oilfrev's efficiency is the fact
that he has held his present position for
the past 20 years through all the various
changes of administration. In company
with Hon. C. B. Moores, Mr. Gilfrey
made a tour of the electric station and
paper mills and was greatly pleased
with what he saw. He says our electric
station is exceeded in size only by the
great electric station of Niagara Falls,
and that while our paper mills are not
as large As some of the eastern plants,
the machinery is all the latest and most
approved patterns and their product not
excelled anywhere in the world. Mr.
Gilfrey had not visited our city for a
number of years past and was agreeably
surprised at the material advancement
and substantial growth manifested on
