JUNCTION CITY. Jan. 31. A colony of
Danish folks from Wisconsin will lo
cate here in the near future. The first
step to this end was taken today when A.
C. Nellson, of that state, closed a deal
with G. C. Milieu for his 1600-acre farm
near here. Tho transaction represents
j;.0 000. The land is nearly all in a high
state of cultivation, and is one of the
li -t tracts in this section. The new
comers will engage largely in dairying,
and it Ik probable that a creamery will
be established. M. Neils-on, their repre

diided into jmall tracts and every acre
will be made to yield all that Is possi
ble A smull portion will be set aside
for a church.
The immigration from the Eastern
stat. to this section is greater now
than ever before. A noticeable fact in
connection therewith is, that nearly all of
those coming in are men of means who

STATE TELLS WHAT IT AVI Mi DO.
Prepare n Contract for Company
Which "Would Reclaim Arid Land.
SALEM. Or., Jan. 31. Yesterday's corre
spondence from Salem contained an erro
neous statement of t'n difference that ex
ists between the State Land Board and
the Pilot Butte Development Company
regarding the conditions upon which the
company should be granted a contract
for the reclamation of FC.O00 acics of arid
land in Crook County. The board bof the
opinion that the company should have a
Hen for only the actual cost of reclama
tion, with interest, and should icceive pay
from purchasing 5ettler.- upon that baas.
The company contends that it should have
a lien lor the estimated cost fixed at time
of making contract, and should receive
pay from settlers accordingly. The board
today .v?nt to the attorneys for the com
pany a form of contract that is- thought
to comply with the arid land law to
gether with a letter saying that, unli'ss
the company hhows oomo reason why the
form shorld be altered, it will be adhered
to. The board Is desirous of giving the
Pilot ButU Company a contract upon
which it can begin operations, but be
lieves it would be bad policv to adopt tho
practice of granting irrigation companies
liens for estimated amount." that may
prove to be far in excess of the actual cost

OREGON'S LAWS WILL COST STATE
Only SOOOO Left to Pny Bounty for
Next lli Months Deficiency
SALEM. Jan. 31. The killing of 120,000
coyotes at a total cost of about 250.000
will be the result of Oregon's scalp boun
ty laws. Secretary of State Dunbar to--day
Issued a statement showing that up
to the present date S4.644 scalps have
been paid for at the rate of $2 each.
Thirteen counties have not yet present
ed their claims for January bounties,
covering scalps taken prior to December
31. and at a fair estimate these will num
ber 2500 more, making the total number
of coyotes killed prior to December 31,
1901, about S7.14I. During the last 12
months the 'number of scalns presented
for bounties was 4.6. The present law
wi remEl1" ? force a"olhf "r' t
lenst. and at tni nmo r?itp nf Kllllnir the.
least. and at the same rate of killing the
total would amount to 121.S13 scalps. It
will probably be 13 months from Decem
ber 13, 1901, before the Legislature will
take any action upon bounty questions,
so the number would nominally be great
er than Just stated, but the fact that the
state bounty appropriation will be ex
hausted soon may discourage coyote
hunting to some extent.
Amount Raised Under First Lair.
Under the first bounty law there was
raised i bounty fund of $U7.000. This
fell 515,000 short of the requiremtnts,
making the total expenso under the old
law $132,000. Under the new law, passed In
1901, the state pays two-thirds of the
bounties, the several counties paying the
other one-third. Up to the present date
warrants have been drawn to the amount
oi w,.w . ana emms arc oul aKBre-
gntlns some $000 more making the total
to date about $i0.0CO. D"nng the next 12
months the claim against the state scap
bou" nd '11,1 8 an?P1C, l0.

!aw- Thls ?l- two-th Irds of the total
amount paid .for scalps, and when the
! one-third paid by the several counties has
DCCn added' the t0tal PenSCS tO the peO-
. . ' . . ,,i., .w. rr.ui.. .u.
bounties in the first Instance, and upon
the proper showing the state reimburses
the counties to the extent of two-thirds
of this amount. As stated before, war
rants have already bean drawn upon this
found to the amount of $33,263 QS, and
claims arc outstanding to the amount of
00. leaving but J3736 02 in the fund. And
this is all that is loft to pay the claims
that will come in during the next 12
May Be a Deficiency.
If the covote scalp supply keeps up,
the claims will amount to 540.000 for the
ensuing year, leaving a deficiency of
about $3'2e3 9S. This, of course, is upon
tho theory that County Courts will go
right on paying scalp bounties. If all
scalp-taking should cease today, the state
fund would not be more than sufficient
to meet the demands upon it, for many
persons have in their possessjon scalps
which have not been presented to the
County Courts, and these would come
straggling in for two or three months.
If County Courts continue to pay for
scalps after they know that the state ap
propriation Is exhausted, they will do so
upon their own responsibility, relying up
on the next Legislature to make a defi-
' ciency appropriation to reimburse them.
The first bounty law took euect on r ei
ruary IS. 1SJ9. and the new law on Feb
ruary 2C, 1S0I. The following statement
shows the progress of the scalp bounty
business, the total number of scalps pre

She was by nature a timid woman.
Nothing had been able to induce her to
cross the narrow, swaying plank which
bridged the creek. Sooner than take
this short cut she would go a mile above
where there was a substantial wagon
hridp-e. But now when the fire was
sweeping across the prairie, consuming
houses and crops, she was driven to the
plank over the creek as the only hope
of escape. Danger drove her. Fear
flogged her. And tottering and trem
bling she made the passage in safety.
There are a great many sick women
who have heard for years of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription, the medicine
made famous by its cures of womanly
ills. P.ut they have no faith in it. They
go the long way round to seek health,
and use the services of a loeal practi
tioner. Perhaps when he fails they try
patent medicines. It is only when they
realize there is danger in disease ; that
doctors can't help and patent medicines
don't cure that they are driven to try
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and
find it is the short road to health.
THE BRIDGE THAT CARRIED THEM OVEU.
Thousands of women unite in praise
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription as
the bridge that carried them to safety,
put them out of power of disease, and
gave them perfect and permanent health.
They put themselves on record for the
benefit of others who suffer and have
exhausted all other means used for
effecting a cure.
" In April, 1900, my strength gave out
and I was obliged to go to bed, suffering
with female weakness, also had ulcers
and inflammation," writes Mrs. Ellen D.
Rollin, of Piercevillc, Ripley Co., Ind.
"I tried a ph3"sician's remedy for a
month but got no better only weaker.
Tried another medicine sis weeks, but
got no better, was quite discouraged. I
read Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Book,
telling of the cures Dr. Pierce's medi
cines had performed. My husband said
he would have more faith in Dr. Pierce's
medicine than in any other, and he got
me a bottle of the 'Favorite Prescrip
tion ' at once. I began taking it, and
wrote to Dr. Pierce. I received several
letters of advice, also a small book treat
ing on Woman and Her Diseases. I fol
lowed the directions given as closely as
I coalcL Began taking Dr. Pierce's med
icines in July, and in two months I was
able to do my housework. Took twelve
bottles of 'Favorite Prescription,' also
four cf c Golden Medical Discovery.'
Had a severe case of inflammation and
suffered a great deal, but by persevering
I regained my strength. Weigh twenty
five pounds more than I ever did before.
I think Dr. Pierce's medicines far excel
all others, and hope those who are suf
fering will turn to him for aid. I thank
him for his advice and kindness, and can
heartily recommend his treatment to all
who may be suffering as I was."

Favorite Prescription are not temporary,
but permanent. They are perfect cures.
It is not uncommon for women to say
that they never knew the meaning of
perfect health, even in their best days,
until they had used Favorite Prescrip
tion." And this is because the medicine
is more than a mere cure for female
troubles. It not only puts out the fire
of disease, but it rebuilds what the fire
has destroyed, and often on a finer scale,
as In Mrs. Rollin's case, who, after her
cure, weighed twenty-five pounds more
than she ever weighed before.
"Favorite Prescription" is a superior
tonic and nervine. It feeds the nerves
and cures nervousness. It restores the
appetite and gives natural, refreshing
sleep. It builds up the body, restores
lost flesh and gives back the clearness of
girlhood to the complexion sallowed by
A PHYSICIAN'S OFFER.
Reference is made by Mrs. Rollin and
Miss Johnson to correspondence with Dr.
Pierce. They took advantage of his
offer of free consultation bv letter, and
acknowledge their gratitude for the ad-
SfSNaSSEfc'3 The same offer is oneri
all. Everv sick

woman is urged to write
to Dr. Pierce, and so
secure the opinion of a
specialist in the treat

All correspondence is
held as strictly private
and sacredly confiden

This offer of free con
sultation bj letter, made
by Dr. R. V. Pierce, is
not to be confused with
the spurious offers of
" free medical advice "
made by men or women
whoaving no medical
knowledge or training,
are not physicians, are
not permitted by law to practice medi
cine, and cannot therefore give genuine
medical advice. Of course anyone com
petent or .incompetent can give advice
on any subject, but the advice of un
skilled persons in medical matters is not
merely valueless, but dangerous.
Dr. R. V. Pierce, as chief consulting
physician to the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical lustitute, Buffalo, N. Y., assisted
by his staff of nearly a score of skilled
physicians, has in a little more than
thirty years treated and cured hundreds
of thousands of weak and sick women.
" I received your letter some time ago,,
with advice about your wontlerful medi- ,.
cine," writes Miss Stella Johnson, of 28
Brady St., Dayton, Ohio. I was troubled
with severe pains every month when I
wrote to you for advice. After receiving
your letter and following its directions,
I am now happy to say that after five
years of untold suffering I have not had
any pains since first using your ' Favorite
Prescription.' I was induced through a
friend to write to you and follow your
kind advice. I thank God and Dr. R. V.
Pierce fojr the health I now enjoy."
