ASTORIA, Or., Sept 18. (Special.) The

CHENEY TEACHER WINS
RECOVERS DAMAGES FOR BREACH
OF CONTRACT AT NORMAL.
Supreme Court of Washington De
cides Acceptance of Position Need
Not BcExpressed In Words.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Sept 18. (Special.)
By virtue of a decision of the Supreme
Court rendered today. B. May MacKenzle
recovers from, the State of Washington
$1500 for breach of contract to teach In
the Cheney State Normal School.
Miss MacKenzle and Mrs. Rose Rice
Turner were elected to positions
in the Cheney Normal School
on June 21, 1900, the former for
one year at 5500 per year, and the lat
ter for one year at 51000. The action of
the board in electing these teachers was
rescinded by resolution about two months
later, and a few days before the opening
of the school. Both teachers claim to
have tried to .secure other employment
for that year," but failed. Mrs. Turner
assigned her claim for salary to Miss
Mackenzie and action was brought against
the state In the ratter's name for the en
It was claimed by the state that the
election of the two teachers' was merely
an offer of emplbment of which neither
signified acceptance; that both refused to
perform work assigned to them and that
Miss Mackenzie was not qualified to teach
In the Normal School by reason of not
having a common school certificate.
The judgment In the lower court was for
the state, and the decision today s a
complete reversal of the Superior Court
The Supreme Court In discussing the
evidence declares that the acceptance of
a contract need not be expressed in
words, but may be Inferred from one's
acts. It appears that Miss Mackenzie
expressed pleasure at her re-election to
the clerk who notified her, and was after
wards called In consultation about the
work. The possibility of giving her
training school work In addition to her
duties In the kindergarten department was
suggested ana sne expressea a preierence
for not taking up the additional worn.
The Supreme Court holds that this was
not a definite refusal to do srtaln work
and that the work had not been definitely
assigned. It also appears that Mrs. Turner
was consulted with regarding proposed
changes of methods In her department and
expressed disapproval of the changes. The
court does not find from the evidence
that there was a refusal to perform the

DEATH OF B, Tv PENGRA
PIONEER, POLITICIAN, PROMOTER,
AND NOTED CHARACTER, -
Passes Peacefully Away at Home of
. Son in Lane County After a
Life Full of Incidents.
EUGENE, Or., Sept IS. (Special.) H.
J. Pengra, pioneer, politician and railway
promoter, one of the most noted charac
ters In Oregon history, died at 1 o'clock
this morning at the home of his son, W,
J. Pengra, at Coburg, at the advanced
age of SO years,
B. J. Pengra came West to Oregon with
the 1S53 arrival of Immigrants. He be
came prominent In politics in the late '50s
and is famous as the first Republican of
Pengra drew attention when In 1S5S he
Y.asJ an iov io .i111?11
the Republican nominees for President and
Vice-President He was a thorough Lin
coin Republican and was the first speaker
to canvass the state for the Republican
ticket ,He was successful in his vigor
ous wock and was elected elector and car
rled tfie vote of Oregon to Washington,
and helped elect- Lincoln. He then re
turned to Oregon and engaged In the po
litical Senatorial fight when Colonel
Baker, of California was a candidate from
Oregon. He was practically boss of the
state politics, and It was his influence
which ,elected Baker. As the reward
Baker gave him the office of Surveyor
General. Joel Ware was one of his clerks
at the . time. This office he held for
term and then went to the Legislature.
In Salem Pengra was the . moving spirit
of the movement "to unite the, Douglas.
Democrats and the Republicans. It was
a fine bit of work and kept him In the
lead. In the Legislature he was a. doml
nant spirit, stubborn and immobile, ready
to fight any and all kinds of opposition
and generally triumphed, as long .as he
kept his endeavors confined to Oregon
But Pengra wanted greater things. In
1870, when the transcontinental railway
had been finished, he saw that the State
of Oregon was soon to have a railway
extending, from San Francisco to Port
land. It was already built as far as Sa
lem. Pengra secured the military road
grant from Eugene south through South
eastern Oregon, and It was his ambition
to direct the railway over his route. But
the Oregon & California Company had Its
own route and fought Pengra to the bitter
end, and finally securing the vote of Con
gross to establish the route as It stands
The news almost made Pengra crazy
and he wrote a terrible letter for publl
cation, challenging Senator, Williams to
a duel, and making all kinds of. threats
against his oppdnents.
Later on Collis P. Huntington had
quarrel with the O. & C, and was on
the point of aiding Pengra with a com'
petitive road, and even went so far as to
build a road from Woodburn to Natron.
He then sold out for" 51.000.000 and quit
The blow upset Pengra, and he was com
mitted to the insane asylum for a year.
Pengra was a forceful character, and
has done great good to his chosen state.
He was nearly 81 years of age, and had
been falling for some time, and for
nuniber of years past has not been active

Prove Our Claims
DR. W. NORTON DAVIS.
After thoroughly investigating all
the curative influences science has
so far discovered, we are ox the
opinion that our treatment marks
the limit of medical possibilities in
the cure of men's diseases. How
ever, we are going to strive toward
still greater accomplishments, just
as we have striven for the past 2L
years, though at no time will we
accept a case for treatment or re
ceive pay for our services where we
!have the slightest doubt as to our
ability to effect a cure.
This most hideous of all venereal
diseases can no longer be classed
as Incurable. The Idea that the
limit of medical aid Is to keep the
disease dormant by persistently dos
ing the system with mineral ppisons
is as incorrect as many other an
cient theories to which many of the
profession cling. Such treatment
not Infrequently results In the virus
being driven deeper Into the system,
where it attacks and destroys even
the very bones of the sufferer. We
positively drive the very last taint
of poison rrom tne system. J.ne
cure Is thorough and permanent,
and every symptom of the disease
vanishes forever. We employ no
dangerous drugs or mineral noisons,
but use harmless blood-clfianslng
remedies heretofore unknown in the
treatment of this disease. We re
gard our success in overcoming this
frightful leprosy as the crowning
triumph of our professional career.
Our treatment for stricture re
moves the necessity for surgical
operations, even in. severe cases of
long standing. We do ilo cutting
or dilating. No other physician
employs our methods of overcom
ing this disorder, so the service we
offer you Is original and distinctive.
Do not give up hope because others
have failed. We will cure you, and
the cure will be a prompt and pain
less one. Our treatment dissolves
the stricture and permanently re
moves every obstruction from the
urinary passages, subdues all in
flammation, relieves all Irritation
or congestion that may exist in the
kidneys or bladder, reduces enlarge
ment of the prostate gland and re
stores health and tone to all the or
gans affected by the disease.
Every case of contracted disease
we treat is thoroughly cured: our
patients have- -no relapses. When
we pronounce a case cured there Is
not a particle of Infection or in
flammation remaining, and there Is
not the slightest danger that the
disease will return in its original
form or work Its way into the gen
eral system. No contracted disorder
Is so trivial as to warrant uncer
tain methods of treatment, and we
especially solicit those cases that
other doctors have been unable to
That condition commonly known
as "weakness" Is merely a symptom
of chronic inflammation in the pros
tate gland. It is not weakness at
all, though in time It brings general
debility through its depressing in
fluence upon the mind of the suf
ferer. We treat for such inflamma
tion only, and use mainly local
remedies, and In years we have not
failed to obtain complete and per
manent results. The cause of weak
ness was discovered by ourselves,
and no other physicians can dupli
cate our cures.
Often the condition appearing to
be the chief disorder Is only a reflex
ailment resulting from other disease.
Weakness sometimes comes from
varicocele or stricture; skin and
bone diseases result from blood pois
on taint, and physical and mental
decline follow long-standing func
tional disorder. Our long experience
in treating men, enables us to de
termine the exact conditions that
exist and to treat accordingly, thus
removing every damaging cause and
