perfect organization of all the lines

Independent system and its rural
connections since the work was in

the horse became involved some
way by reason of a loan of money

Bryson was attorney for Horseman
and did all he could to save the
. horse for Horseman. E. E. Wil
son was attorney for Ingle and did
all he could under the law to get
the horse from Horseman. The
trial was not yet concluded when
this item was written, and therefore
it was not yet known which one of
the parties, Ingle or Horseman, got
horsed. All that was certain about
it was that it was a horsey case.

lawyers got on their high horses,

For Convng Term of Court
New Cases Were Filed
The coming term of the circuit
court promises to break all records
in the matter of divorces. Two
new cases were filed' yesterday,
which in addition to the four al
ready mentioned in the Times
raises the total up 10 six. In view
of the fact that it is less than three
months since there was a term of
circuit court, the grists at the di
vorce mill show more than the usual
amoutt of domestic infelicity.
One of the new cases is that of
Mrs- E. W. Fawver versus John
W. Fawver. The defendant is the
man who eloped with 18 year-old
Lilly Howard, residing a few miles
east of Monroe. They left their
homes at midnight and journeyed
down the Willamette in a row, boat
to Salem where they were appre
hended by ' the authorities and
Fawver put under $500 bonds on a
charge of adultery. This happen
ed December nth, and the incident
is cited as grounds for the divorce.
The wife asks for $30 a month for
the maintenance of herself and the
four children in the family.
In the other divorce filed yester
day V. R. Moore, is plaintiff, and
the wife, Mrs. M. A. Moore is de
fendant. The charge is similar to
that in the Fawver case, the co-respondent
being Charles Mulkey.
An arrest of Mrs. Moore on a war
rant from Linn county, transpired
Saturday, but the casebasbeen dis
missed, the husband having been
the only person who can appear as
prosecuting witness. He .declines
to prosecute on a criminal- charge

barnacles; The liquor on being
sampled proved to be of- a very fine
quality. We ; understand that Mr.
Barker has it all spoken for at the

Always Keeps Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in His House. '
"We would nolbe without Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It is kept on hand contin
ually in our home," says W. W. Kearney,
editor ofthe Independent, Lowry City, Mo,
That is just what every family should do,
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
jettled m the system. This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be
done when the remedy is kept at hand. For
