SUIT TO OUST TWO
Validity of McMinnville Council
BOOT-VACANCIES 'WERE FILLED
Complaint Says Tito Xcw Men Are
Guilty of Intrusion, and Usurped
rHNNVILLE, Or., March 3. Suits
were filed In the Circuit Court today In
the name of the State against B. Nelson
and O. O. Hodson, two members of the
City Council, holding seats on three votes.
The complaint prays in each case for
judgment, declaring the defendant gunty
of intruding into and usurping the-said of
fice of Councilman, and unlawfully exer
cising the functions thereof, also asking
that their election be declared void, and
their seats vacant.
The McMinnville Councif consists of six
members. Several weeks ago one mem
ber resigned, and in filling the vacancy
three votes were cast for R. Nelson and
two for another candidate. The Mayor
declared Nelson elected. The anti-Nelson
men Daniels and Jones protested, alleg
ing that it required a majority vote of a
toll council to elect In other words, four
votes. The protest was disreg- "ded, and
the two anti-Nelson Councllmen have not
attended, a Council meeting since. This
week another Councilman resigned, and
the Council proceeded b fill tho vacancy
by the election of O. O. Hodson, there
being but threo members present when this
election took place. At this meeting,
among other proceedings, an ordinance
was passed to compel the attendance of
Councilmen at Council meetings, and to
assert the power of the Council to declare
vacant the offices of Councilmen who
should refuse to attend meetings. The
euit Instituted 'toaay is the counter move
of the minority.

HOW TO SPRAY FRUIT TREES.
Slipshod Worlc Is Useless and Will
Not lie Conntennnccd.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. March 3.
Fruit Inspector Beck, of this county. Is
giving very close attention to the duties
of his office this spring, and insists that
spraying be done with rigid adherence to
the rules. "Many people," said the In
spector today, "aro careless about spray
ing. They do the work in a slipshod man
ner, and then, when they find that their
trees are still Infested, they complain that
spraying does no good. To be effective
every branch and part of the tree must
be covered with the solution. Another
thing is that people must stop guessing
when they mix salt, sulphur, lime and
lye for spraying. The proportions must
be exactly as required by the formula.
If every orchardlst would spray thor
oughly, and follow the directions in mak
ing his spraying solution, one year's work
would be enough to rid this county of the
San Jose scale."

THE OLD METHOD
Of Treating: Piles and Rectal Dla
eaues Now Discarded.
Thousands of sufferers bear witness to
the value of the Pyramid Pile Curo and
even in cases where a dangerous surgical
operation has failed to cure, surprising re
sults have been obtained from the new
remedy after a few weeks' use.
Relief from pain is so immediate that
patients sometimes imagine that the Pyr
amid Pile Cure must contain some form
of cocaine or opiate, but a careful anal
ysis shows It to contain no opiate, co
caine or any Injurious drug whatever; In
fact. It is guaranteed absolutely free from
any deleterious substancc.
The old methods of treating piles by lig
ature, knife or tho still more cruel treat
ment of dilatation, besides causing intense
pain and frequently collapse and death,
are now known to be practically useless
as far as a permanent curo Is concerned.
Nearly every case of piles may be -traced
to faultyactlon of the liver, and It Is a
mistake to "treat the trouble entirely by
local applications of salves and ointments
or by any kind of operation. The new
treatment by the Pyramid has clearly
demonstrated Its superiority over all of
The Pyramid Pile Cure Is strictly scien
tific, both In its composition and in its
therapeutic action, and the best feature
of It Is that It Is perfectly safe and harm
less. "No ill effects ever result from its
The cure" Is accomplished gradually and
painlessly by the astringent properties
contained In it, which cause the little
tumors and congested blood vessels to
contract and the obstruction to the cir
culation to be removed.
In view of the immense number of pat
ent -medicines .on the market, it Is a sin
gular fact that the Pyramid is the only
pile cure of note, tho only one that Is
sold and recommended in every drug store
in the United States.
The remedy Is In suppository form" and
far superior to any salve or ointment for
convenience. It Is applied at night and
absorbed Into the sensltve rectal mem
brane, acting both as a local and a con
stitutional treatment. The treatment is
effectual even- in cases of many years'

SNAKE RIVER FRUIT PROSPECT.
Rest Ever Known There, for Peacbes
Particularly" Wheat All Right.
COLFAX, Wash., March 3. The fruit
crop of the Snake River Valley, according
to the present outlook, promises to be
the best in the htetory of fruit culture in
that section. The mild winter has brought
the trees through In the pink of condi
tion. George Smith, or Penawawa, one
of the principal fruitgrowers of this coun
ty, says that even tho tenderest varieties
aro entirely uninjured. The apple crop
promises to be the largest ever known In
tho county. J. R. Lee, of Penawawa,
called attention to tho fact that fn over 20
years there never has been two successive
failures In fruit production, and that there
is a belief in tho peach district of the
county that a failure of the peach crop
can be expected every soventh year. This
theory is in accord with the history of
the industry during the past 21 years. As
last year was, In a eense, a failure, the
growers look with confidence for a bounti
ful crop this season.
Fall wheat is uninjured throughout the
Palouse country, and seeding of spring
wheat will begin in the western portion
of Whitman County on Monday.

"GroTrcrs to Get Their Money and
Buyers to Get Their IVoolJ"
George A. Houck, the well-known ranch
er and goat man. has made arrangements
to form a pool of mohair for this section,
with the twofold object of securing larger
returns for the rancher and to facilitate
the marketing of the product. Mr. Houck
states that he had 'been urged by a nuni
ber of goat ranchers to do this thing; and
had decided to take the matter In hand.
Mr. Houck Is the largest producer of
goats and mohair in this section of the
country., and is well acquainted with the
buyers and able to secure good results for
the pool. Individually, Mr. Houck will
have about 1000 fleeces of mohair to mar
ket, -and he expects to have in this pool
between C000 and 10.000 fleeces.
"The difference between the Hopgrow

said, "Is that the former Is an organiza
