A gold bracelet which his wife re
ceived as a Christmas present in 1907
led Paul Stutzke, of Oregon City, to
suspect that his wife had friends with
whom he was himself not acquainted.
Although she assured him that the
bracelet was a gift from one of her
friends, named Mrs. Becker, the latter
told Stutzke that this was until re.
Stutzke then discovered that his wife
was on very friendly terms with an
Oregon City saloonkeeper named Gris
son. She alsi received picture postal
cards from Grisson, t.he cards repre
senting loving couples In various af
feclonate attitudes. The more Stutzke
looked into the matter the more de

the only solution of his matrimonial
troubles, and this he w-ag granted Fri

Ill Health Is More Expensive Than
This country Is now filled with peo
ple who migrate across the continent
In all directions seeking that which
gold cannot buy. Nine-tenths of them
are suffering from a throat and lung
trouble or chronic catarrh resulting
from neglected colds, and spending
fortunes vainly trying to regain lost
health. Could every sufferer but undo
tne past and cure that first neglected
cold, all this sorrow, pain, anxiety
and expense could have been avoided.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is fam
ous for its cures of colds, and can
always be depended upon. Use it and
the more serious diseases may be
avoided. For sale by Huntley Bros.
