ENTRY AT 18 IS
PIBLIC LANDS COMMITTEE UNIT OX
Bill Not aa Acceptable la
Member a. One Passed
Year, Rut I Compromise,
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Feb. 8. By unanimous vote the
House committee on public lands fa
vorably reported a bill permitting mi
nors of tho age of 18 years or more to
make homestead entry of public lands.
As reported the bill provides:
"That any minor of the age of 18
years or over and otherwise qualified
under the public land laws shall be per
mitted to make homestead entry, under
and subject to the homestead laws of
the United States'. Provided. That no
minor shall be permiltted to make final
proof upon such an entry or receive
' ,"1 ntii h or she shall
attained the age of 24 years: Pro
vided further. That such entryman shall
comply with all the requirements ot
the homestead laws as to cultivation
and Improvement of the land entered
but shall not be required to establish
or maintain residence thereupon until
he or she shall have attained the age of
21 years, and final proof upon sucn an
entry may be submittted at any time
within two years after such entr.yman
shall have attained the age of 24 years.
The bill Is not as acceptable to West
ern members as a similar bill wnien
nassed the Senate a year ago, but cer
tain Eastern members on the commit
tee forced the adoption of restrictive
clauses confining tho bill to homestead
entries only and providing that no
patent shall issue until the entryman
has reached the age of 24. The first.
bill, passed by th,e Senate, permitted
minors of 18 or more to make any kind
of land entries: that bill was modified
last year by the House committee to
rjermit them to make homestead or
desert entries only, and this year tho
bill is further cut so as- to apply only
to homesteads. Secretary Lane fa
vored the more liberal bill and also fa
vored issuance of patent to minor en
trymen when they have fully compiled
with the requirements of the homestead

Iv nervous, weak and run-down condi
tion. we publish this letter from Dorris
Coplier. of Fort Worth, Tex., I go to
the high school and take music lessons
and became rundown, weak and very
nervous, so I could not do anything. I
would shake all over and could have
screamed at times, and was really unfit
to keen on with my studies. Mother
purchased a bottle of Vinol for me
and within a week I was better, and in
two weeks I had gained five pounds
and felt fine."
It Is the curative strengthening ele
ments of the true cod liver extract, aid
ed by the blood-making, revitalizing
effect of peptonate of iron and beef
peptone, contained in Vinol, which
made it so successful in building up
health and strength and overcoming
the nervous condition of Miss Coplier,
and we ask every school girl in Port
land who is in a like condition to try
Vinol, on our guarantee to return their
money if it fails to benefit. The Owl

is a Vinol Drugstore. Look for the

The new Orpheum playhouse to be
built here. San Francisco reports say,
will be similar to the $125,000 Kansas

Rumors that an effort was being .
made to lease the Heilig or the National
Theater for the remainder of the season
were denied by ManHtfer Reiter.
A GIRL'S COMPLEXION
Very few girls get through their 'teens 1 '
without eruptions or pimples showing on ,
These may be due to indigestion result- "
ing from improper diet. If so they will
quickly disappear when the proper food
is adhered to. If they are accompanied
by pallor and listleasness you must look
to the condition of the blood.
Because these eruptions on the faces of
school girls are bo common they seldom
receive the attention from parents that ;"
they require. When they indicate thin
blood Or anemia there is a ready remedy
in Dr. Williams' Pink 1111a. Thesetonio
pills, free from harmful drugs, are pretty
sure to help growing girls because they
build up the blood at a time when tlm
demand on it is greatest. As the blood
is made rich and red, fickle appetites be
come normal, lassitude gives way to
vigor, the cheeks and lips show the glow ..
of health and the whole system is toned
up. The nervous system is invigorated
and with proper attention to diet many
dangers are averted.
Your own druggist sells Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills or they will be mailed, post- :'
