April, In discussing Frank Riley's chances

'I have seen several of Riley's matches
and consider him the speediest and best
sclenced grnppler of his weight that I
have ever seen In action. The faster they
come after him the better he seems to
lika it. Any one who- tries rushing tac

Jiu Jitsu combinations and wonders after
ward how It happened. I have yet to see
a bout In which he did not secure at least
one fall by one of those peculiar holds."

Tugboat Goes Down When Hit
by Steamer Potter.
Disabled Craft Huns Ashore and
Crew of 13 Lands Steamer Teal
Reported to Have Struck
an Unknown Vessel.
The towboat No Wonder and the river
steamer T. J. Potter came Into collision
yesterday afternoon about 4:30 o'clock
near the mouth of-the Willamette, result
ing in the sinking of the No Wonder.
The No Wonder had in tow a raft of
hoomsticks and upon approaching the Pot
ter. Captain Kred Stimson says, gave two
blasts from the steam whistle, to which
no answer came -from the approaching
steamboat. The weather was thick, there
being considerable fog. and it is believed
by Captain Stinison that the pilot of the
Potter failed to make out the other boat
until too late to avoid a collision.
The boats crashed together, the No
Wonder having her hull crushed In for
ward, and Immediately began to fill. Her
pilot headed for shore and succeeded in
runniiur the nose of the boat up on the
sloping bank, where she stuck fast. The
crew of 13 went ashore, while the after
end of the boat, including the wheel,
sank out of sight.
The Potter tied ii at St. John. and. on
account of the dense fog. was ordered
to remain there until this morning before
undertaking the trip to her dock. The
towboat Ocklahama and the Tillamook
steamer Sue II. KImore also tied up at
thesanie place. The Beaver was held
at the Portland Flour Mill dock last
night, upon learning of the heavy fog
below. ' .
A report came last night from St. John
that' the river steamer J. N. Teal, of the
Open River Transportation Line, had col
lided with an unknown ship near St.
John, and had her pilot-house knocked off.
It was said by Captain Shaver that the
Teal was tied up with some injury, but
to what extent he was not able to say.

More Diseases, but Fewer Deaths
During Her Term, She Says.
PORTLAND, Or.. Jan. 26 (To the
Editor.) Two letters, which have appeared
in your columns within as many days re
garding the conduct of the Health De
partment, suggest that a little more light
on the matters they discuss might not be
Tlfcs larger part of Dr. John Maddens
letter Is too puerile for notice, and may
be passed by without comment. His sec
ond paragraph is a complete mis-statement
of fact. He says: "She has disputed tiw
Oregonian'a statement that the low mor
tality of the city during the past year
was due to the splendid climate of Ore
gon, declaring that such credit should be
glan solely to her' department, and thus
two doctors disagree." I can assure the
doctor I will be very glad to see how he
can reconcile this very extraordinary asser
tion with the language of my annual report,
a copy of which was sent to tho various
newspapers of the city some time ago and
which was surely readily to be got at by
anyone desiring to know what It contained.
If he chooses, he can still find therein "The
continuously low d.ath rate In the city
of Portland Is due largely to the pure
water supply, to the mild and fostering
climate, and to the comparative absence
of poverty and overcrowding that so In
creases the mortality of larger and older
cities, supplemented by such auxiliaries as
hospital service, quarantine, vaccination,
antitoxin, disinfection, ambulance service,
and to tha school and market Inspection.
With a proper garbage gathering and in
cinerating system and adequate milk in
spection the death rate might fall still
Dr. Wheeler's contention that a larger
number of communicable diseases are re
ported Is cheerfully admitted. To secure
accurate and complete reports has been
one of the strongest efforts of this de
partment. The history of the office Is. that years
ago deaths only were reported. Later,
severe cases of contagious diseases were
reported although deaths from such dis
eases usually exceeded the number actually
reported prior to death. As the work
broadened snd improved the reports were
more frequently made, the cases quar
antined and the deaths became relatively
fewer. A case that is reported, recorded
and under observation Is a safe case. It is
the contaclous di&.-ase that is not reported,
not recorded and .therefore not quarantined
thet is dangerous. That Dr. Wheeler's In
ferences are incorrect may readily be roen

" Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound ? w
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous .did remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Here is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.
Houston, Texas. "When I first began taking Lydia E. Pink
barn's Vegetable Compound I was a total wreck. I bad been
sick for tbree years witb female troubles, chronic dyspepsia,
and a liver trouble. I had tried several doctor's medicines, but
nothing did me any good.
"For three years I lived on medicines and thought I would
never get well, when I read an advertisment of L.ydia E. Pink
barn's Vegetable Compound, and -was advised to try it.
" My husband got me one bottle of the Compound, and it did
me so much good I continued its use. I am now a well woman
and enjoy the best of health.
"I advise all women suffering from such troubles to give
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. They won't
regret it, for it will surely cure you." Mrs. Bessie L. Hicks,
819 Cleveland St., Houston.
Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely
not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it
not do her as much good as it did Mrs. Hicks.
A bad back turns every twenty-four
hours into one dull round of pain and
misery you are lame In the morning,
nasged all day by a dull, throbbing
backache, can't rest in the evening or
sleep well at night. It hurts to bend
over, straighten up. get up from a
chair, or lift even a light weight. Any
sudden twist, turn or awkward move
ment sends a tearing twinge of pain
through the weak spot.
Backache is really kidney - ache.
The kidneys are in the small of the
hack, and any pain there Is enough
cause to suspect your kidneys. If the
urine is discolored, contains sandy sedi
ment, or passes too frequently, then
you have double proof.
Keep the k.dneys well and the kid
neys will keep you well. Well kid
neys filter the blood and keep it pure.
Diseased kidneys only partly purify the
blood. Neglect weak kidneys and you
Invite uric acid poisoning, gravel, stone
in the kidney, rheumatism, heart trou
ble, diabetes. Brigh.Cs disease, and a
long list of other serious disorders now
recognized as having their cause in
kidney weakness.
At the first sign of backache or urin
ary disorders, give the kidneys quick
help, not with plasters, liniments, nor
any other outside applications, but
with a special kidney medicine.

remedy for sick kidneys Is Doan's Kid-

No remedy that does not entirely remove the cause of Catarrh from the
blood will ever make a permanent cure of the trouble. Just as long as the
circulation remains contaminated with the impurities and catarrhal matters
which produce the trouble, the mucous membranes or inner linings of the
body will be kept in a state of irritation and disease. Sprays, lotions and
other local applications will sometimes temporarily relieve the tight,, full
feeling in the head, buzzing noises in the ears, uncomfortable, stuffy feeling
of the nostrils, and help to loosen the mucus in the throat; but Catarrh is a
constitutional blood disorder and until it has been entirely driven from the
system there can be no permanent cure. S. S. S. cures Catarrh by removing
the cause from the blood. It attacks the disease at its head and by thor
oughly purif ying and cleansing the circulation, and ridding it of every par
ticle of impurity, and at the same time enriching the blood, allows the
inflamed and irritated membranes to heal, improves the general health, and
stops every disagreeable symptom. S. S. S. reaches down to the very
bottom and leaves no trace of the disease in the system. Book on Catarrh
and any medical advice free to all who write.
Can Be Cured
Varicocele results from parliJl paralysis of
the delicate nerve fibers that have a part In
controlling local circulation of. the blood. The
muscular coatings of the veins, being dep'rlved
of nervous communication and control, become
inactive, weaken and relax. The blood vessels
expand from the pressure within, the circula
tion in the parts becomes sluggish, and fre
quent stagnant pools form In little nooks and
pockets that constantly enlarge as the relaxa
tion continues. The possibility exists that clots
may form In those stagnant pools and then pass
ouUInto the general circulation. Should one find
lodgment In a valve of the heart the result
might he Instant death, or should it he carried
to the hrain. general paralysis would follow.
