WHAT A WOMAN CAN DO.
In general, people ere not out of
Innnor with Mrs Carrie Nation, the
"Kansas saloon smasher. The rea
son for it is that saloons have no
legal standing under the laws of
Kansas. Prohibition is the, law of
the land there, and every saloon
that exists is in open defiance of
the prohibition law. It is because
of this, that when Mrs Nation sal
lies out with her hatchet and smash
es the windows and fixtures of a
saloon, that she invariably escapes
punishment. ' The same thing at
tempted in Oregon would result in
arrestand fine or imprisonment,
because here, saloons are licensed,
the community accepting the li
cense fee as a consideration for the
privilege of selling liquor , and there
by becoming a silent partner in the
Mr Nation's acts appear to be
awa"kening a sentiment for enfor
cement of, law in -various towns in
Kansas. The flood of sunlight
thrown upon conditions in the
state by the notoriety achieved by
Mrs Nation has drawn attention to
the fact that in almost every city,
town and hamlet the law has been
linked at by officials, has been de
fied by liquor dealers, and has been
ignored by public sentiment, a con
dition of shameless subversion of
a sacred statute, that the people,
for the sake of the good name of
their commonwealth, shrink from
having advertised to the rest of the
world. Accordingly, in one large
town the people have driven out
the saloons, Torjeka has served no
tice on all joints to get out, and the
attorney general of . the state has
appointed famous counsel to assist
in future: enforcement of the pro
hibition law. : - - .;
WHA T CO-OPERA TJON MEANS.
The free ferry proposition is too
trivial a matter of expense for there
to be seriuus disagreement among
citizens of Benton county. . Its
whole cost for a year would amount
to but 33 cents J tax on $1,000
worth of taxable property, should
the county bear the whole expense,
and to but 1 6 cents should the
County pay but half . the expense;
In the latter it would be but one dol
lar of cost to the man whose tax
able property iwas valued at $6000
for assessment purposes. .The mat
ter is entirely too trivial for men to
become excited over.
The fact of the matter is that
each section of . Benton county
should desire the advancement and
"strengthening of every other sect
ion within the county limits. Cor
vallis should be anxious for the
development of; Alsea, Monroe
should be anxious to see Soap
v Creek develop; andjvice versa. Were
Corvallis twice as populous and
twice as wealthy a cityv she would
' pay double the amount of taxes,
and the taxes to be paid by other
sections of the county would be
correspondingly reduced. The same
is true of every locality. What
helps one, helps all. A system of
v-rnprtion and mutual assistance
in road building and improvement
is the correct rule of action. . ; Sect-
. ions should not be divided up in
hostile camps, warring each against
the other. : Only paralysis and de-
. lapidation result from that course.
In all these matters there is always
middle ground on which there can
be unity of purpose with happy
and profitable results for the ulti
mate outcome. . ;, ,

STILL ODER' ADVISEMENT.
The Free Ferry Proposition Citizens
- in Court What They Said.
The question of a free ; ferry
across , the. Willamette at. Corvallis
was Ifeely argued at last week's ses
sion of the county court.. A, dele
gation of Corvallis citizens attended
the session and urged the establish
ment of such a ferry, the expense
to be borne by the county. -
Several arguments in favor of the
plan were advanced. It was cited
that the four Corvallis precincts
pay nearly one-half the taxes of the
county; that Corvallis proper, pays
more than one-third of such taxes.
A large part of this tax money is
spent in maintenance of bridges
and roads in various parts of the
county, some of which are : of no
possible direct advantage to Cor
vallis, but for their construction
and repair Corvallis people must
pay one-third, and the four Corval
lis precincts nearly one-half. Cor
vallis taxpayers in addition to this
have at their own expense to main
tain streets at a cost of one to two
mills tax each year. Though pay
ing one-third on the' entire cost of
roads and bridges, Corvallis re
ceives nothing whatever from , the
county on the same account, and it
was claimed that the asking of $800
a year from the county for mainte
nance of a free ferry was a very
small bounty to ask. Various
other points were presented, bear
ing on the same subject. ' At . the
conclusion, the court took the mat
ter under advisement, finally con
tinuing1 the ferry project until the
March term. A - lengthy petition
of heavy taxpayers is - behind the
movement for the ferry.
It is understood that in the count
ry there is some opposition to the

The Kind You Have Arrays
Has Never Faffed
' - Mr. C. S. Peaslee, the well-known druggist of
Morgan City, La., is highly thought of in his neigh
borhood because of his skill and care in filling pre
scriptions. The best physicians in the place send
their patients to his store whenever they can. Any
thing which Mr. Peaslee may say can be depended
upon absolutely. In a letter to W. H. Hooker &
Co., New York City, proprietors of Acker's English
Remedy, he says: " In all my many years' experi
ence as a druggist,: I have never handled a medi
cine of any nature that gave such complete satis
faction as Acker's English Remedy for Throat
and Lung Troubles. I have sold hundreds of
bottles, and have yet to learn of a single case
where it failed to care, in
croup, it acts with a cer
tainty that is really'mar-velous.:-
My wife does not
take much stock in medi
cine, but she has absolute
faith in Acker's English
Remedy, always having it.

children are attacked by
croup at night. It is a
positively harmless rem
edy, as I can personally
tpstifv. I know of a little
girl who accidentally drank & whole bottle. Sh was," of course, sick at her
stomach lor a short time, but the sickness passed away, and then the child was
in better health than ever before. I oan understand why Acker's English Rem-
' edy is so efficacious, because I am a druggist. It is not a mere expectorant,
but a strengthening, invigorating tonic as well.- While it heals the irritations
of the mucous membrane, it also builds up the constitution and purifies th
blood. I endorse it absolutely." .. ,.if
