Mr. Smith said, in his address, he be
lieved the Bourd efficient as far as it
goes, but that through lack of funds, it
can not properly patrol the state and

Smith believes they could do effectivo
work undor the new system regulating
the actions of the local inspectors, and
would serve such purpose better than one
Another important matter coming be

annual report, discussed very vigorously
the question of private car lines. He
"We have instituted a fight against one

A meeting of the Young Women's Chris
tian Assoclationwas held, last night at
which four members of the" executive
board, whose terms of office had expired.

sociation work. The members of the board
who were unanimously re-elected were:
Mrs. L H. Amos, Mrs. James Falling,
Mrs. Jacob Kamm and Miss Hazeltlne.
The ex-secretary. Miss McElroy, was re
membered and a motion prevailed to send
her greetings from the annual meeting.
The report of the president, Mrs. W. J.
Honeyman. was a general review of the
year's work In the Various departments
and was full of interest and ambition for
the future of the association. The trav
elers' aid work will occupy the attention
of the Y. W. C. A., in common with other
women's organizations' the coming Sum
'mer, and under this head Mrs. Honey
man announced that it was planned
to establish headquarters at the Fair In

manent building fund of the Y. W. C. A.
Space has been secured for the building
and about $1500 will be put Into the propo
sition, which amount will be raised with
out appealing to the public. The, great
need of a permanent building was also
dwelt upon and Mr?. Honeyman stated
that one would probably be erected not
later than a year from the coming Sep
tember. The library of. some 400 volumes which
Mrs. Helen Ladd Corbett and friends pre
sented to the association during tae year
was mentioned as one of the roost useful
donations received and appreciation ex
pressed. The new tea room In Olds, Wort
man & King's store was shown to be do
ing a good business, the proceeds ot
which will be devoted to the domestic
science department. A fine teacher has
been employed by this department, who,
it is hoped, will be here not later than
February to reopen the classes.
Each Department Growing.
Miss Vance, the secretary-manager of
the association, also had a fine report,
reviewing In detail the work of each de

"The Two Little Waifs," Lincoln J. Car
ter's strong melodrama, will be seen at
the Empire Theater tonight, tomorrow and
Saturday nights and at the regular mat
inee Saturday. The five acts Into which
the play Is divided are well staged. The
stage setting and explosion effects are as
a rule the mainsprings of a melodrama,
but in this play Mr. Carter has given us
a story of exceptional worth and con
sistent In Its plot. The story has to do
with twin sisters, one the sweet loving
mother and the other a callous, cruel
adventuress, which are taken by one and
the same lady. The way In which she
portrays these two characters and her
lightning changes and "make-up" is some
thing marvelous and it needs the closest
watching to detect the fact that it is one
person only playing the two parts.

Will you have fun at the Baker this

Patent Medicine Instead of Liquor.
CORVALLIS. Or.. Jan. 1L (Special.)
Because they had been selling patent med
icine, composed principally of liquor, since
Benton County went dry. Corvallls drug
gists narrowly escaped prosecution yes
terday. All of them were summoned to
appear before the Deputy District Attor
ney, where each admitted the fact of hav
ing sold the patent medicine and other
bitters. It appeared, however, that all
were ignorant of the fact that the sale
of the preparation is prohibited, and on
that account no complaints were made.
The incident, however, has stopped sale
of the stuff, as well aa of other proprie

Not Cure Child Grew Worse,
CURED BY CUT1CURA-
IN TWO WEEKS
Mrs. George J. Steese, of 701 Cobttro
St., Akron. Ohio, tells in the foUowing
letter of another of those remarkable
cures of torturing, disfiguring skin
humors daily made by Cuticura Soap,
assisted by Cuticura Ointment,
after physicians, and all else- had
failed: "I feel it my duty to parents
of other poor suffering babies to tell
you -what Cuticura has done for my
little daughter. She broke out all
over her body -with a humor, and. we,
used everything recommended, but
without results. I called in three doc
tors, they all claimed, they could help
her, but she continued to grow worse.
Her body was a mass of sores, and her
little face was eaten away, her ears
looked as if they would drop off.
Neighbors advised me to get Cuticura
Soap and Ointment and before I had
used half of the cake of soap, and
box of ointment the sores had all
healed, and my little one's face and
body was as clear as a new-born babe's.
I would not be without it again if it
costfive dollars, instead of seventy-five
cents, which is all it cost us to cure
our baby, after spending many dollars
on doctors and medicines without any
