appear for hearing in the Justice Court.

SCHOOL- GIRL DRINKS POISON
Prompt Action by Hlllsboro TJrug
gist Saves Laura Messlnger's Life.
HILLSBORO, Or., Dec. 4. (Special.)
Laura Messlnger, a 16-year-old
schoolgirl, attempted suicide in a local
drug store yesterday by taking car
bolic acid. The, girl, who was on the
way to school, asked the druggist, J.
W. Bailey, to show her some attach
ments for an atomizer, and after her
query had been answered she remained
in the store, for a few minutes. When
the druggist was writing the direc
tions on a prescription for another
customer, the girl took a bottle of car
bolic acid from her pocket and at
tempted to swallow the .liquid.
The druggist saw trie move from
behind the counter and rushed outside
and dashed it from her hands. He
called to Dr. F. J. Bailey, who -was in
the store, and the two rushed her to
a bottle of alcohol and poured a large
amount of the liquor down her throat.
Other antidotes were given "and the
girl was soon taken home. It is
thought she will recover.
The girl is not considered very
bright. She is a daughter of Michael
Messlnger, of Laurel, and ran away
from home last September.
CUT WOOD IN THE RESERVES
Idaho Fatners Are Saved by Action
of tff Government.
POCATELLO, Idaho, Dec. 4. (Spe
cial.) That there has- been little suf
fering In the southern part of Idaho
as a result of the prevailing coal
famine In this part of the country is
due to the Government Forestry Serv
ice. Free use permits, entitling citi
zens to go on the reserve and cut
cordwood for fuel, have saved . the
situation. Three hundred and twenty
such permits have been Issued on the
Cassia reserve to farmers on the Twin
Falls and Minidoka tracts, where the
coal shortage was particularly felt.
Over 1000 cords of wood have so far
been cut and hauled distances ranging
from 20 to 30 miles.
Until the permits were Issued farm
ers were compelled to burn sagebrush,
and the supervision of the Cassia re
serve, with the permission of the offi
cials at Washington, has suspended the
rule of tBe service which requires
holders of permits to cut the full cord
age called for in their permits and
have the fuel stamped by a ranger.
The farmers are now permitted to en
ter the reserve and cut wood as it
is loaded, without the useless formality
of Government stamps on each stick.

BOOTH STIFFENS HIS BACK
Declares He Can Organize the Sen-
ate Over Coon's Head.
TACOMA, Wash.. Dec. 4. (Special.)
The Seattle Chamber of Commerce "Is
trying to Induce Robert Booth. Senator
Elect from King, to cease his fight for
the organization of the state Senate over
the head of Lieutenant-Governor Coon.
Booth returned to Seattle Saturday from
a trip through Eastern Washington, de
claring he had pledges of 22 Senators to
the support of his plan. Then the confer
ences began. They ' continued all day
Sunday and all day yesterday.
Booth's loyalty to Piles was questioned
and he was told that any further prose
cution of his fight would work harm to
King throughout the state. Booth was
asked to forget his political enmities and
work for his city and 1 his county. He
was told that It would be absurd' for King
to beg an appropriation of $1,000,000 for the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition from the
men who were the objects of King County
Booth was told plainly that It was the
belief of his supporters in King County
and Seattle he could not succeed in his
campaign against Coon. The spokesman
of the conference is said to have been
John H. McGraw, president of the Seattle
Chamber of Commerce. In reply Booth Is
reported to have declared his belief in his
own success. The aid of Senator Piles to
bring Booth back Into line will be asked.

able and unexpected Increase in the busi

How long thel convention will last is
not known but it is expected that several
days will be taken up with the discus
sion. HOP DEALERS ARE H CRT.
Meeting Will Be Held In' Portland
Today to Discuss Car Shortage.
The hop dealers of Oregon will hold a
meeting In Portland this afternoon to dis
cuss the all-absorbing car shortage ques
tion. The meeting, which was called at
the instance of A. J. Ray, will be held in
his office in the Sherlock building. A
large attendance is expected, as all the
hop firms of Portland, Salem ami other
Valley points have promised to send rep
resentatives. No definite method of procedure has
been settled upon yet, and at the meeting
today It will be decided whether to pro
ceed against the railroads under the pres
ent law, or frame a new one to meet the
case. Some of the hopmen believe the
laws now on the statute books are ade
quate to force the companies to provide
a sufficient number of cars to meet the
trade's demands. Others- believe . a bill
should be framed for presentation at the
coming session of the Legislature that
will bind the railroads to fulfill, their ob
ligations better than any laws now in
The hop trade is not only complaining
of the inadequate car service, but also
finds much fault with the rulings of the
Southern Pacific in regard to the hand
ling of hops at originating points.- Many
regulations that are considered arbitrary
have been made that materially add to
the expense of forwarding shipments, and
seriously delay the movement.
There is also said to be too much red
tape about the railroad business,
"We shall attempt to get the railroad
company to grant some relief in the way
of switching charges between stations,"
said Mr. Ray yesterday. "This we con
sider an important and necessary ar
rangement in the hop trade. In making
up a carload of the same grade or qual
ity of hops, we are very frequently
obliged to buy parts of the carload at
different points and, as the matter now
stands, are obliged to concentrate the
entire carload In Portland. If, instead,
we could get a low switching charge for
hauling a car partly loadedfrom one sta
tion to another, where 'we could finish
loading it. It would not require so many
local cars and would relieve the con
gestion in Portland.' The present distance
tariff governing, traffic between stations
Is as high or higher than the rate to
Portland, so we have been compelled to
ship all partial, carloads to Portland or
pay the $2-rate for Eastern shipment.
"Considering the fact that wool Is corl
centrated at a number of different, baling
points at a nominal charge.: of usually
about 5 cents a hundred and from, these
points shipped East in carload lots, wc
think that, in view of the nature of the
hop business, we should be provided with
some such arrangement."

In Search of Belief.
The world Is full of disordered
stomachs and 90 per cent of the money
spent upon physicians and drugs goes
in an attempt to cure the stomach.
People are made to believe that In
order to gain health they must doctor
their stomachs and use cathartics. So
the doctor gets his fee for the stomach
treatment and the druggist for the
physic. untiPthe savings of a life time
are exhausted and yet no Cure. ,
Let's be reasonable.
The sick stomach is in every case
the result of over-eating, hurried mas
tication 'and improper choice of foods.
The mucous lining ail the way down
the food tract loses its sensitiveness,
and when food Is forced down the
muscles fail to respond. They do not
churn the food as they should. The
glands no longer give out gastric juice
to dissolve the food and render It
capable of assimilation. The man has
become a dyspeptic.
There is one sure way and only one
to bring positive relief. Put into that
stomach of yours the very elements
that it lacks to get that food into
liquid form. It takes pepsin, diastase,
golden seal and other ferments to ac
complish this. The healthy stomach
contains these elements. The dyspep
tic stomach lacks part or all of them.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablet is made up
of Just what the dyspeptic stomach
lacks nature's digestives.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are not a
medicine, not a drug, not a cathartic.
They do not cure anybody of anything
but Dyspepsia and Indigestion and such
ailments as arise from poorly digested
While they digest the food the stom
ach recuperates. The mucous mem
brane is coming out of its stupor, the
gastric juice is coming to the surface,
the muscles ane regaining their power.
Every organ of the body takes on new
life, the skin gains color, and the eyes
are no longer tinged with yellow. You
Why doctor and why drug yourself?

THOUSANDS HAVE KIDNEY
TROUBLE MP INT KM IT
COPf RffiHTJI I kMUKUMEfiaco.
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are responsible for more sickness
and suffering than any other disease, therefore, when, through neglect
or other causes, kidney trouble is permitted to continue, many fatal
results are sure to follow.
Your other' organs may need attention but your kidneys most,
because they do most and should have attention first.
If you are sick or "feel badly," begin taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy, because as soon
as your kidneys begin to get better they will help aU the other organs
to health. A trial will convince anyone.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root the great kidney and
bladder remedy is soon realized. It
stands the highest because Its remark
able curative power has been proven in
thousands of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine, you should have
Wilson, Conn., Feb. 18th, 1006.
"A man could not be In any worse condition
.than I was with kidney and bladder trouble.
I doctored with several good doctors and -one
physician told me I had Brighfa DlHeane and
that I would not live over six months. Another
told me It was gall stones. I had eevere
pains in my kidneys all the while, could not
stoop over, would be dizzy, could not lie
down without someone helped me up; my
back was weak and pained me: urine was as
thick as cream and it would scald me some
thing dreadful. I had to get up many times
in the night to urinate.
I took Swamp-Root and today I am a well
man and never felt better. All of my troubles
have gone and show no signs of returning.
I take my oath that Swamp-Root put me
where I am today and I can prove it by
acquaintances. Very truly yours.

learned a few truths that are undeniably of jn ny Uncomplicated
interest, to rjV.rii jmaii. rirsi

curable" cases are due usually to NEG
LECT and DELAY. A?ain, I know that
many men suffer FOR YEARS and prac

EVER trying to dose themselves with some
patent nostrum that never could cure. And
further, it is evident that many men will
run to what they call "cheap" treatment.
NO TREATMENT AT ALL is what
"cheap" treatment means in nine cases
out of ten. She last state of the man is
worse than the first. Just before you go
a line further in this announcement, stop
and ask yourself as to whether YOU are
following in he foolish footsteps of the
man who NEGLECTS himself? Are YOU
trying to cure yourself with nostrums? Are
