"Afier the election it will be no more
big four." Herald. This refers to
U'Ren, Ogle. Bourne and Young, and is
undoubtedly true. This "big four' are
poli ically dead.
It is a yery satisfactory where both
sid-s claim the victory. One faction of
Multnomah Republicans got the organi
zation and the other claims it got the of
fices; and so both are enthusiastic for
the state ticket, and as united in its sup
port as though they loved one another
like brothers Salem Statesman.
If war is declared five hundred mil
lion gold bonds are to be issued. What
a feast for Wall street Herald. These
bonds will provide money to par the
bra ye soldiers and marines wbo will figbt
for the grand old flag, and they will be
paid in honest money. Uncle Sam didn't
pay his soldiers in Populist fifty cent
The "Brownell-Ryan machine" seems
to worry the Herald. Evidently the
Herald is in favor of the U'Ren-Bourne
80 machine. Drop a nickel in the slot
and the "banker" will do the rest.
Probably had Mr. Brownell gone in on
that "hold op" business and pulled an
eighty dollar prize, his populintic friends
would have indorsed his nomination.
The Populist lee-palling contingent of

frame of mind.
When a chronic office seeker gets
turnad down by his Party, he joins the
one-head wing of the Populist Party.
E. P. Carter, of Molalla, announces his

The Populists have erected a Tower of
Babel in Oregon. The confusion of
tongues is secondary to the confusion of
political sore-heads. Every $80 Popu
list, every one-head Republican, every
chronic office-seeking Democrat, every
political renegade, every political bood
ler, have formed an amalgamation for
boodle and spoils. What a nice kettle
of fish to set before an intelligent com
munity. Sent to the Reform School.
Last Thursday evening Willie Walker,
who had been riding around consid jr-
ably of late with A. W. Phillips on his
express wagon, went into Julius
Sch wart's clothing s-ore, and asked for
a suit of clothes on the latter.s account .
The clerk fitted him out with the clothes,
but told him first to go across the street
and ask Mr. Sch warts," wbo was in a
barber shop, if it was all right for bim
to take the clothes. The boy weut out
but did not see Mr. Schwartz. How
ever, he soon returned and told the clerk
that Mr. Schwartz said he could have
the clothing. Young Walker took the
parcel of clothing and left it in McKit
trick's shoe store. In the 'meantime,
John Dicklemau, who bad noticed tl e
actions of the boy, informed Officer
Shaw. In a very brief period ot time
the officer had the boy in custody, and
the clothing returned to the store. Ow
ing to the extreme youth of the boy he
was turned over to County Judge Hayes,
who ordered him sent to the reform
school, where he will join two brothers,
who were sentenced to that instituticn
about four months ago.

Not Always I'nderetood.
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 tbe blad
der, and for that reason any distress, dis
ease or inconvenience manifested in the
kidneys, back, bladder or nrinary pass
age is often, by mistake, attributed to fe
male weakness or womb trouble of some
The error is easily made and may be
as easily avoided by setting urine aside
for twenty-four hours ; a sediment or set
tling is evidence that your kidneys and
Madder need doctoring. If you have
pain or dull aching in tbe 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 kid
ney remedy. The mild and extraordi
nary effect will suprise you. It stands
the highest for its wonderful cures. If
you take a medicine you should take the
best. At druggists fifty cents and one
dollar. You may have a eamble bottle
and pamphlet, both sent free by mail

Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainfield. III.,
makes the statement, that she caught
cold, which settled on her lungs; she
was treated for a month by her family
physician, but grew worse. He told her
she was a hopeless victim of consump
tion and that no medicine could cure
her. Her druggist suggested Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption; she
bought a bottle and to her delight found
herself benefitted from first dose. She
continued its use and after taking six
bottles, found herself sound and well;
now does her own housework, and is as
well as she ever was Free trial bottles
