this road will be but 5 per cent, or a rise
of five feet in every 100 feet, giving ahout
the same grade as the suspension bridge
has. The roadway follows the side of
the bluff over some as rough country as
is found in the Cascade mountains until
it comes down the hillside to the flat
near the town of Willamette Falls. The
road will be 10 feet between all embank
ments and 24 feet in excavations includ
ing gutters. All timber, brucb, etc, isto
bt removed for 20 feet on each side of
the right of way. The contract price of
this road is 4,H80. The county court
began work on this much needed
thoroughfare late in the season so as to
draw on the road fund apportionment
next year to continue it ont and connect
with the Wilsonville and Stafford road.
The Molalla road has been graveled
and put in excellent condition from the
city limits to the top of the bill beyond
Beaver creek and planked a mile futher,
making five miles of good road this year
n that direction. This road, with a little
work and slight expense, could be put
in good condition to the Spangler bill ;
then by changing the present location of
the road and going west for a quarter of
a mile and extending tbe present High
land road down Buckner creek not only
could both the Spangler and Paine hills
be avoided but a better road obtained for
a small out lay than can eyer be made
at almost any price by going over these
A mile of crushed rock and three miles
of plank have been put on the High
land road this season.

On the Oswego road 1J) miles of

Tbe New Era hill has been cut down
to a 10 per cent grade and covered with
a good coating of gravel, assuring an ex
cellent road during th9 rainy season.
The Oglesby hill south of Mark's
prairie has been reduced to an 8 per
cent grade and thoroughly graveled.
This does not include the general re
pair and road work done in the 3t road
districts by the regularly appointed
supervisors, but only the work done by
special contract under the direction of
the court. Smyth and Howard were the
successful bidders in all of the above
cases and performed their work in a
manner highly satisfactory to all con
cerned. Clackamas county, though per
haps one of the most dillkult counties in
the state in which to build roads on
account of its undulating topography,
will soon have roads that are good and
a pleasure to drive over either in sum
mer or winter reaching out into all parts
of the county, enabling our farmers to
market their produce at any season with
ease and convenience.
doing so went nine days without water,
losing all but two of his companions and
coming off himself witli the merest spark
of life. Certainly here is a heroic story
scarcely equaled in the annals, of travel
and exploration; and It has gone thus
far practically untold. But Mr. It H.
Sherard has prepared a full account of
Dr. Hediu and his discoveries and ad
ventures, baaed largely on conversations
with him, and it will be published in
McClure's Magazine for December, along
with numerous illustrations from
sketches and photographs made by Dr.
Hedin himself during bis journey.

Football Game at Gladstone Parka on
Much interest is being taken in the
foot ball game to be played at Gladstone
park on Thanksgiving afternoon between
an eleven from F Co., O. N. G., and the
Oregon City Athletic Club, and already
the ladies are doning the colors of their
favorites and it begins to look as though
the entire city would be out to witness
tbe contest. F Co. 'a team will wear
orange and white and tbe Athletic club
purple and white. The game will be
called at 2 p. in. sharp. Tbe admission
is free and as most of the business
houses will be closed standing room on
the grounds will be at a premium. This
will be a most excellent opportunity to
work oft tbe effects of a Thanksgiving
dinner. Tbe boys will line up as follows:

Sot Always Uuderstood.
A fact often overlooked, or not always
understood, is that women suffer as
much from distressing kidney and bladder
troubles as the men. The womb is situ
ated back of and very close to the bladder,
and for that reason any distress, disease, '
or inconvenience manfested in tbe kid
neys, back, bladder or urinary passage
is often, by mistake, attributed to female
weakness or womb trouble of some sort.
The error is easily made and may be
as easily avoided by setting nrine aside
for twenty-four hours ; a sediment or
settling is evidence that your kidneys
and bladder need doctoring. If yon have
pain or dull aching in the back, pass
water too frequently, or scanty supply,
with smarting or burning these are also,
convincing proofs of kidney trouble. If you'"
have doctored without benefit, try Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney
remedy. The mild and the extraordinary
