Why Physicians Recommend Castoria
C ASTORIA has met with, pronounced favor on the part of physicians, pharmaceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians
with results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the result of three faots: First The indisputable evidence that
it is harmless: Second That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimilates the food: ThirdIt is an agreeable and
perfect substitute for Oastor Oil. It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narootic and does not stupefy. It is
unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's 'Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, however, is to
expose danger and record the means of advancing health. The day for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To
our knowledge, Castoria as a remedy which produces composure and health, by regulating the system not by stupefying it and our readers are

REV. C. T. WILSON.
.Grace M. E. Church Congregation
I;arge "Jesus Wept," the Text
for Interesting Sermon.
"The xears of Jesus," was the subject
of Dr. Clarence True Wilson's sermon
at Grace M. E. Church yesterday morn
ing, and a large congregation was prcs
enf to hear It. The great number o
strangers present at Grace Church this
Summer is particularly gratifying to the
pastor and members who always extend
them a most cordial welcome. Miss Anna
Dltchburn was the soloist yesterday and
rendered. "The Penitent" with exquisite
The shortest verse in the Bible "Jesus
!"Wept," was the text from which Dr.
'Wilson took his theme, and he said:
"On different occasions in his earthly
'life our Savior broke into tears. The
nature and character of the tear of
Jesus are deserving of close study.
"He wept as a man. No stronger proof
of his real humanity is given. His sup
ernatural birth did not change the real
nature that was born. It was only a re
turn to the supernatural beginning of hu
manity for the purpose of producing an
original specimen of mankind. He wept
as a friend. He loved Lazarus. Thoy
had spent happy hours together. Death
had now snapped in twain the tendrils
that bound their hearts together, and Jesus
wept. And the spirit of inspiration has
crystalized those tears Into diamonds and
set them in the diadem of human friend
ship. Jesus Is the model friend, and tho
truest and sweetest friendship thrive
where his light shines brightest. He
wept as a Savior. At Lazarus demise
he saw physical death the wages of sin.
"Learn that it is not wrong to weep
over the afflictions of life. It is as natural
as for a child to cry when it receives
physical injury. The eyes are nature's
safety valves. The mourner may always
count upon the sympathy of Jesus. This
reminds us of the Christliness of human
sympathy. The purest tenderness is dis
tilled in tears, the noblest language of
the soul. We ought to culm-ate Christian
sympathy and its fondest expression.
"It is not unmanly to weep over the
thought of mortality or the woes of oth
ers. Jesus wept. We are not to be dis
couraged as Christians if called upon to
suffer. God had only one Son without
sin but never one without suffering. Nor
are we to doubt our acceptance with
God because of conscious spiritual weak
ness. Christ died of a broken heart on
Calvary. We have a complete Savior
The world needed to see the heart of God
and they saw it at the cross. Wo cannot
be satisfied with the pantheistic God who
is everywhere and everything. We can
not worship an abstraction of logic or
of philosophy. We want a creed that
brings us a sympathizing Saior. His
promises must aoh our lives as does the
rainbow from out the weeping heaven."
Wines of the Ancients.
"The tombs of Beni Hassam," said an
antiquary of Chicago, "are Interesting
on account of their realistic paintings.
In these tombs, which are 5000 years
old, there are many pictures of drunk
ards. Drunken men, waving wine cups
in both hands, aro being carried home
by sneering slaves. Drunken women
lurch through the streets, followed by
little mocking children. All this, mind
you, 5000 years ago.
"Alexander the Great used to hold
drinking contests. He who could drink
and carry off the most wine won. Pro
rnachus, the skilled Promachus, won a
gold cup from Alexander by drinking
14 quarts of wine. Fourteen quarts!
"The Romans used to servo at their j
banquets wines SO and 100 years old. j
Tncy would mix with tnese wines tur
pentine, resin and sea water. Thus,
they thought, a fine flavor was gotton.

NAPOLEON AND 0YAMA.
Futile Russian Effort to Make Com
parison Between Them.
PORTLAND, Aug. 12. (To the Ed
itor.) "The prominent porsonage belong
ing to Mr. "Witte's suite" evldontly as
sumes a crass itmorancc among the
American people In the comparison he
attempts to make between the campaigns
of Oyama and Napoleon.
True, his statement of ultimate facts
may approach the truth, but he omits
any reference to conditions which in every
way modify his conclusions. He says
Napopleon invaded Russia and entered
Moscow while Oyama is more than 603
miles away from the nearest Russian
But the Japanese have fought for every
foot of ground they have occupied, start
ing upon territory not technically Russian
Indeed, but occupied by an immense Rus
sian army, the constantly increasing
strength of which. Instead of Its with
drawal, as Russia had agreed, was one
of the chief causes of the war.
Napoleon, on the other hand, command
ing an immense allied force, not over
half of which was French, crossed the
river Niemen, the boundary of Russia,
up to that moment being upon the terri
tory of his allies, and for all practical
purposes as if upon the soil of France,
and not until ho had traveled three-fifths
of the distance to Moscow upon Russian
soil was any resistance made, when Boro
dino was foucht. In fact, had not Bar
clay de Tolly been replaced by Prince
Bagratori. he would have entered Moscow
This same . diplomat also informs the
American people that In two years after
the Russian campaign the Russian army
"entered Paris and dethroned the great
warrior." Yes. the Russians did enter
Paris, but accompanied by the armies of
Prussia, Austria, Saxony. Bavaria,
Sweden. Wurtemburg, in fact almost tho
whole of continental Europe, while Eng
land and the peninsular allies were strik
ing France at the Pyrenees.
Just before this Napoleon had suffered
a defeat at Leipslc, where the peoples
opposed to him were so many that ever
since that fight has been known as the
"battle of nations." And what would have
happened had Russia alone been opposed
to France in this action? At Wachan,
Just before the final contest at Leipslc,
and indeed it has been considered a
part of the battle of the nations, tho
combined forces of Austria and Russia
wore decisively defeated bj Napoleon and
would have been annihilated but for de
mands upon his attention elsewhere, not
tho least being treason in his own ranks.
And upon his retreat to Paris he adminis
tered so many defeats to these allied
forces that he once more thought himself
Invincible and thereby lost his chance
t retain his throne. Yet we see how
far Russia "dethroned the great warrior."
Evidently this distinguished diplomat as
sumes that our people are not above the
average intelligence of those of Russia:
or else he is himself sadly lacking in
historical information, a supposition that
can scarcely be assumed tvs to one travel
ing in tho train of Mr. Vittc, who as
suredly have advanced in education as
well as civilization since the time of the
visit of the Ambassadors to the court of
Saint James. In the time of ePter. so

Umatilla County Scene of Legal Bat
tle of Interest Rights at
Canyon City and Prairie City are the
last entries for municipal water. The
name of the source of supply for the for
mer. "Whisky Gulch," Is a little sug
gestive but it is said to afford water
enough to fill and keep filled a 100.000
gallon reservoir, ample for Canyon City
for many years to come.
In the Rogue River Valley an enter
prise of great importance Is the Con
dor Water & Power Company. This
corporation purchased from an old gen
tleman named Sahlstrom, the water
rights of the Rogue River Falls. The
Southern Orogonlan describes the work
as the cutting of a broad canal at the
edge of the falls for a 'distance of two
miles. There, the water being delivered
into the canyon below, power will be
developed, enough, to operate a large saw
mill, and also to haul the trains of the
Medford & Crater Lake Railroad, now
The largest recent transaction in the
power field is that of the sale of the
Lane County Electric Company and Its
undertaking to the same syndicate which
has Invested at Spokane, Walla Walla,
Baker City, Pendleton and Salem. The
distinction of this enterprise is, that
after examination of the chances for
water power along the McKenzle River,

their plant at Springfield, where fuel
could be obtained cheaply from the Booth

A suit of surpassing Interest to all pres
ent and intending water users in this
state, has been Instituted the last week
in Umatilla County. Principles of the
utmost importance are involved. The
act passed by the last session of the
Legislature is made use of and the State
of Oregon brought in. Thus the State
Engineer is called into action, to make
surveys and examination of the entire
stream system of the Walla Walla and
of the Little Walla Walla Rivers. Ho
has to ascertain the quantity of water
flowing In these streams, carrying capa
city of all ditches, amount and charac
ter of lands irrigated by each, the char
actor of soil and amount of water re
quired, and the amount actually in use.
The plaintiffs, about 40 in number, be
longing to the Little Walla Walla River
Irrigation Union, have availed them
selves of the water, flowing through their
lands, for Irrigating those lands. They
allege tnat In past years the supply has
been ample, but that recently, the de
fendants, six irrigation companies. Mil
ton City and about 400 settlers and land
owners along the upper reaches of these
streams, have drawn so much water from
the rivers that not enough has been
left for the use of those lower owners.
Altogether about 200 persons. It Is said,
are directly interested.
No one owning riparian rights on any
of tho rivers of Oregon will fall to watch
eagerly the progress of the suit. By
recent legislation the right for any one
to claim, to divert and use "surplus"
waters of any stream has been bestowed.
How far that word can be stretched,
whether an owner Is entitled to conserve
for himself and his successors water not
actually used, but of great prospective
use and value, this, with other questions
of no less interest to the state will come
up for determination. If the wings of
Mr. Lafe Pence and his Imitators arc to
some extent clipped, and the old riparian
rights under the common law precedents
maintained. It will not surprise many
students of a vague and elastic law.
THE FEMININE FAREWELL
Lovely Woman Demands Lingering
It Is a fact that women take much
longer than men to say good-bye to their
own sex. On one of the big liners, three
women who Just hated to part with one
small woman turned back four times
from the gangplank Saturday evening to
say final farewells. The upshot of It all
was that the plank was hauled Inboard
before the leavetaklng process could be
completed and the three got as far as
the Battery on the way to Boston before
their plight was discovered by the offi
cers. Then the steamer lay to and whis
tled for help. With the assistance of a
harbor tug, to which a couple of police
boats lent moral support, the dear things
wore debarked while the orchestra on
the steamer sarcastically played "Kiss
Me Goodby and Go." W hen a man wants
to say good-bye to another man with
whom he has been spending an hour or
so he just grabs his hat, shakes the other
fellow's hand, says "so long" or "see you
later." and is ofT. But a woman, having
said good-bye in tne parlor, stops at least
seven times between there and the vesti
bule and makes a final stand on the stoop
to talk it all ovor once more. It would be
better for men If they would cultivate
more leisurely habits In their dally Inter,
course with one another, which they
would be moved to do If they more sedu
lously observed the lack of precipitancy
characterizing tho association of women
with their own kind.

Draw Pictures Don't Fight.
A big man who had evidently been feel
ing the heat a good deal, got on a Bronx
(X. Y.) trolley car the other day and
started In to kick becauso people had been
giving him wrong advice about the Bronx
car lines. A very meek-looking man In
the car suggested that he hadn't got on
the right car yet.
"Oh, you're only another one of these
fools up here that don't know anything,"
said the man.
The meek-looking man didn't fight, as
every one expected. Instead he clamly
took out a pencil and a pad from his
pocket and then began to draw lines on
the pad which the cross, man couldn't
see, but which those on the same side
of the car could. Pretty soon they were
all smiling. When he completed the pic
ture of his friend opposite, the little man
put the pad back In his pocket. The cross
man shut up quickly and got out.
"It never falls to work." remarked the
little man as he saw the cross man leave
the car. "It's much better than to fight."

Bees Can Be Aided.
Let intending bee-keepers in Oregon
weigh well the following extract, toll
In? of tho distress of bees In Idaho
from the effect of Lack of water on
their food. Much help may be glvon
them in dry weather by a full supply
of available water. This aids the In
dividual bees, but. of course, docs noth
ing for the honey supply. For bee
keeping as a great aid to the farmer
go to Western Oregon and especially
to the Coast counties, where the white
clover keeps In bloom, and the leaves
and flowers of the vine maple yield a
store of sticky sweetness. Threw
supers a season for each colony, with
24 pounds to the super, is the mark set
and often reached, and such honey "sells
for 12 cents per pound.
"A scarcity of water means a short
age In the hay crop down. the valley:
the curtailed hay crop means prema
ture blooming of the clover blossoms
and a scarcity of the material out of
which hony is made, and this In turn
spells starvation for the industrious
honey bees and a serious curtailment
of their output." says the Boise States
man. "Mr. Atwater and his son. E. F. At
water, are among the leading beemen
of the state, being known as authori
ties on bee culture In this country.
Tho two have at their apiary at Me
ridian about 700 colonies of bees, and
in seasons past they have mad
money In the production of honey.
Thls year their experience bids fair
to be "C another sort. Mr. Atwater
"'While ordinarily there is not an
over-supply of water for the valley,
this year is an exceptional one. The
shortago this year is unusual, and no
ona will feel It more than my son and
I. We have a bee business that In
years past has been a prosperous one.
This year the outlook is far from en
couraging. From our 700 colonies we
should get from 30.000 to 40,000 pounds
of honey. What we expect to , get Is
from 5000 to 8000 Instead. This will
mean to us a loss of from $2500 to
53000 for tho year.
"The shortage in the honey product
thi3 year will be due partly and per
haps wholly to tho shortage In the
water supply. The second cutting of
hay Jn the valley this year will prob
ably not be more than half a crop, and
the clover not properly maturing Joe
not afford the bees the natural oppor
tunity for honey-making. There seems
to be a scarcity of the material out of
which honey Is made."
