Dr. Rog-ers' action is based on the
fact that Eua-ene Hiers. a hide-handler
of this city, is believed to be dying of
anthrax at a hospital here. It is Dr.
Rokers' theory that anthrax is com
municated throuph hides and leather.
Although Hiers was operated on Sat

lesion and the Eiehhorn serum was in
jected into his blood, his condition has

EUGENE. Or., Feb. 13. (Special.)
Joe Neal, of Springfield, is both a
piano player and a genius. Once a
musician of some importance, he lost
what he called the "harmony note."
when three of his lingers were cut oil
in an accident- That was several years
ago. Today, he announced, it had been
recovered, and soon his friends would
hear him play with all his old-time
Neal his invented an automatic de
vice to be attached to the front of the
piano, and which takes tho place of
his missing lingers.
Handicapped, as a result of his in
Jury, Neal could not maintain his place
among musicians. He tried in vain to
nnd the "harmony note." Repeatedly
he planned various devices, but only
recently did he hit upon the idea which
he now pronounces perfect. He has
given the contrivance a trial. He has
called in the neighbors to hear him

FOR BRONCHITIS, WHOOPING COUGH,
CROUP, COUGHS AND COLDS
Make the Best Remedy at Home 128 Teaspoonsful for 50 Cents
N If everything: vt-as sold in as liberal
and fair a manner as the Huntley Drug
Co. are selling- Schlffmann's New Con
centrated Expectorant, absolutely no
cause for complaint or dissatisfaction
could possibly arise from anyone. These
druggists say "Buy a bottle of this
remedy and try it for Bronchitis,
Whooping Cough, Severe Cough, Croup
or any Bronchia! Affection, and we
will return your money. Just as we do
with Schlffmann's famous Asthmador,
if it does not give satisfaction, or if not
found the best remedy ever used for
any of these complaints." "Why not
take advantage of this guarantee and
try this medicine, and get your money,
back, lather than buying another pure

and also wasting your money?
In buying thia remedy, besides secur

pint (128 teaspoonsful) when mixed at

and one-half pint of water. This rem

narcotic. It is pleasant to take and
children are fond of it. You will bo

the same guarantee as Schlffmann's
famous Asthmador of "Money Back" if
not perfectly satisfactory. R. J. Schfff
