Fkee Mistletoe for the Majjt. Mis
tletoe has within a few years past be
come one of the prime necessaries for the
proper celebration of Christmas, and is
considered even more desirable, and Is
more expensive, than holly. Yesterday a
Yamhill County farmer wag standing on
"Washington street, near Third, with a
wagonload of mistletoe for sale. For a
lino bunch, with plenty of berries, he
asked JL This Is the first wagonload
seen on the streets for .sale this teason,
but a large quantity ' of the parasite has
been distributed free, through peculiar cir
cumstances. A well-known department
store firm a day or two ago procured a
"box of mistletoe nearly as big as a box
car, from somewhere up the "Willamette
"Valley, and piled the whole on the tope
of two evergreen-decorated porches, put
up In front of the entrances to their store.
One of the proprietors said his idea was
to give all the- young people in the city a
chanco to get "under the mistletoe
bough," In hope that this might have a
tendency to increaw the number of mat
rimonial alliances during the coming year.
Whether a great many couples took aa
vantage of the opportunity, and each car
ried off a bough as relic, or just how it
-., 0 . -- -- - ,,,
happened. Is not known; but It was found
jcsicuay ii.Un11UB uit uw v. "-"""
tletoc had evaporated. The remainder
was therefore removed and piled on the
sidewalk, and by the time it had been
replaced by more common evergreen the
whole lot had disappeared, and so many
homes have been decorated with mistle
toe free of cost. It Is probable that there
will be plenty of the stuff on the market
Milk Eleven Cents a Gallon. The
projectors of the concentrated milk fac
tory shortly to be started In Portland ex
pect to pay about 11 cents per gallon for
the milk they use. As milk delivered to
Portland consumers brings the milkman
about 25 cents a gallon, this 11 cents may
appear small; but according to Food Com
missioner Bailey the producer will get
more for hla milk than by retailing at
the greater price. "Milkmen." he said,
"have to maintain a pair of horses, wag
ons, and a driver, who goes all over tne
city, leaving a pint here and a quart
there, and so on, while the factory will
take all the producer has at one time, be
the amount great or small. Thus the
milkman's troubles will be ended for tho
day. as he will have no anxiety over col
lecting; no worry over the loss of bills,
no surplus milk to throw away; and no
shortage to make up by purchase. The
11 cents will pay the milkman much bet
ter than the 25 cents does now."
How Bohemia Country Looks. A phy
sical picture of the Bohemia mines, made
of plaster of paris, is on exhibition at
an office in the Sherlock building. It
show3 the mountains In that part of Lane
County to be rather high and rugged,
and, as the roads wind around the steep
points. It suggests hard work for the
horses engaged Jn drawing supplies to
the Helena, the Champion and the Muslck
mines among the deep, wooded canyons.
Ciampion Basin, the terminus of the pro
posed new railroad from Cottage Grove,
Is a narrow defile, beyond which tunnels
will have to be run should the line be ex
tended, as there Is no pass to go through.
Government Too Stingy. The Agricul
tural Department at Washington did not
succeed in getting any bids for the con
struction of buildings for the Weather
Bureau at North Head, Tatoosh and Port
Crescent, Wash., and contractors are
again Invited to send In sealed proposals.
A Portland contractor said yesterday that
there was no money in such jobs, as the
Government only appropriates sums tor
which tho buildings could have been erect
ed several years ago. These appropria
tions, he said, would have to be raised ir

For Oil Near Monmouth. D. M. Wat
son Is preparing to sink for oil within two
miles of Monmouth, on what Is known us
the Whlttaker farm, and expects to have
a rotary steam drill in operation by the
first of the year. H. Hershberg, a bank
er of Independence, is making the exper
iment, which Mr. Watson feels sure will
be successful, as oil has seeped into many
of the wells In that vicinity In such a way
as to render the water unfit for use. He
thinks he will strike a good flow at a
depth of S00 to 1203 feet.

Death op "Pete" Emerson and "Wife.
"Pete" Emerson, for many years a popu
lar restaurant-keeper at Salem, but for
a number of years a resident of British
Columbia, died at his home In Nelson last
Saturday. Mr. Emerson had been In poor
health for eomo time, suffering from a
dropsical affection complicated with heart
trouble, and the death of his wife, which
occurred on Wednesday last, was such a
shock to hiaf that lie survived her only
two days. Mrs. Emerson was formerly
a Miss Roagers, of the Bed Hill section,
near Salem, and he had long been a
member of Chemeketa 3-odge. No. 1, I. O.
O. F of that city. Mrs. Emerson's moth

who rooms at the Occidental Hotel. Mr?.
Dow recently came here from Iowa, and
her former friend Henklns called on her.
but she told him she did not wish his at
tentions any longer. Henklns then began
to haunt the fruit store on Morrison
street where she Is employed, and the
couple had words. Xast Sunday he called
on her at the hotel and talked to her In
the room she occupied. Shortly afterward
Mrs. Dow found that her clothing, hang
ing on the wall over her trunk, was jon
fire, and an alarm wag struck on the near
est box for the Fire Department, but the
blaze was easily extinguished. Mrs. Dow
then swore out a warrant against Hen
klns, asserting that ho had threatened her
life If ahe did not consent to keep com

Who Will Pat for a Deputy? Judge
Cake does not think It lies within the
province of the County Court to provide
a Deptuy Sheriff and pay him a monthly
salary to do police duty at Montavllla.
The residents of that suburb have peti
tioned for such an officer, and state that
a suitable man can be obtained for $50
per month. Judge Cake expressed the
following opinion on the subject: "The
Sheriff - the peace officer, but can hard
ly be expected to police the county. We
don't see how we can grant the petition,
although we can have a man deputized as
a snerin, it tne people at ju-omavuia wui
pay hlra ,tlieinsiavcs.1 u we grant one re-
quest we may have them
quest we may have them coming in irom
all over the county. If Individual com
munities will pay the salaries the Coun
ty Court will have no hesitation in having
the commissions Issued."
Portland's Great Sewers. There have
been more sewers constructed In Portland
this year, and at a larger aggregate cost,
than In any previous year. The Beech
fitreet sewer is ono of the largest on this
Coast, The Holiaday-avenue sewer Is also
an extensive one. The East Oak-street
aewer is a long one, and there Is also the
extension of tho East Davis-street sewer
on the Sandy road, and a. large number of
smaller sewers. The greater part of this
work has been done on the East Side, and
there has also been a very large amount
expended In the construction of gravel
roadways on that side of the river, all
of which has materially promoted the
growth of that part of the city.
Busy at PoStofficd. The clerks in the
postoffice are all kept on the rush these
days, and in front of the stamp window
there Is a crowd waiting most of tht
time. Three additional clerks have al
ready been granted, but they were so
badly needed In other parts of the office
that not ono could be spared to open an
other stamp window. Two more addi
tional clerks have been asked for, and.
as soon as these arc granted, one of them
will be put In charge of the extra stamp
window opened during the holiday season.

Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body
Stomach and brain affect each other. A sick stomach sours tho disposition,
and prevents sleep and brain rest, and a sick brain sours the stomach and clogs
the bowels Men of sedentary habits, brain workers who don't get much
exercise, have sick stomachs and bowels, and wear out their brains and nerves.
A man who keeps his bowels regular with Cascarets Candy Cathartic, that is
without strain or violence, can keep strong and healthy without much exercise.
A famous professor in Jefferson Medical College used to advise his students:
"Trust in God and keep your bowels open! " That's God's own wisdom, for
when the bowels are regular and the digestion strong and healthy, then the sys
tem is safe and the'brain and nerves will have inexhaustible elasticity and life.
IN A WORLD WHERE "CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO
GODLINESS" NO PRAISE IS TOO GREAT FOR
