of the society sir la of the city have
worked as hard as many a poor girl
who does general housework. But this
work has all been a labor of love for
those less fortunate. For five years
all the classes and special meetings
have been held In the Alblna branch
of the Institute.
It is Interesting' to note that in the
first days of the dispensary -It was the
Mothers' Club of the Institute that gave
a bazaar and raised money for the be
ginning of the work. The poor wom
en, with so little luxury, in fact with
but a scant supply of the necessities,
gave the foundation stone that built
the great structure of practical help
fulness to those who are In need.
Activities Are Numerous.
Following are activities of the Peo

BT KDTTH KNIGHT HOLME 3.
Times changed, conditions changed,
and the People's Institute, that had
been located at Fourth and Burnside
streets for 12 years, found it necessary
to seek new quarters, so the stores at
the northeast corner of Jefferson and
Fourth streets were decided upon as
a suitable location, and a few days ago
the Institute and free dispensary moved
and was opened yesterday.
Light, airy quarters, in which are
Eeven clinic rooms, waiting, registra
tion and dressing rooms, an office and
a. department for the tuberculosis pa
tients have been arranged and the dis
pensary is becoming equipped to fulfill
Its mission among the many families In
that district, where it will be a perfect
At one time there were rooming
houses and tenements in the locality
surrounding the old place at Fourth
and Burnside, but gradually the whole
sale houses came In. the men's lodging
houses remained, but the families
moved away and the dispensary .was
patronised largely by men. while the
women and little children could not be
helped so efficiently. The closing of
the saloons brought to the Men's Re
sort at Fourth and Burnside streets
a greater need of space, and so the
institute and dispensary had to move.
The building belongs tJ the First Pres
byterian Church, under the auspices
of which the resort is maintained.
Dispensary Is Modern.
The new dispensary Is much lighter,
more attractive and will be better In
every way to serve the purpose for
which it was intended.
When the news was flashed to Port
land in April. 1906. telling of the dis
aster in San Francisco, the- People's
Institute Immediately made plans to
take care of a large number of the
refugees that were scared away by
earthquake and fire. At that time the
institute held gymnasium, sewing,
cooking and other classes In their
headquarters. These they transferred
to another building and Installed a
Jiurry-up hospital In the gymnasium.
Women and children were cared for.
Mrs. Edward Brooke. Mrs. John Latta
then Emma Failing), Miss Virginia
Wilson and a staff of nurses and doc
tors worked untiringly to help the
sufferers who were destitute and 111.
When the need for this assistance
had passed one of the committee mem
bers suggested that a permanent free
dispensary be founded. The sugges
tion was not forgotten, the appliances
and supplies were stored away for a
short time and in the next year the
dispensary was started.
Medical School Interested.
Dr. Edna Timms, Gertrude French,
Dr. C. J. McCusker and Dr. Noble Wiley
Jones became interested and donated
their services. Miss Valentine Prich
ard, who has been director of the in
stitute for all these years, gave time
and best effort for the good of the
cause. Women and children were the
first charges of the dispensary.
A great victory was achieved In
1903, when the medical department of
the University of Oregon took an In
terest and offered to assist. Now the
dispensary is operated entirely with
the co-operation of the department, and
there is a splendid staff of physicians.
In this (same year Jacob Kamra gave
a substantial gift that made possible
the extension of the work. Since that
day the work and the efficiency have
increased and the Institution is recog
nized as a great factor for good.
The Visiting Nurse Association has
charge of all the tuberculosis patients.
These are treated free at the clinics.
The new room set aside for them is,
like the others, all. white and clean
and equipped with many conveniences.
There are departments for the eye
and ear specialist cases and for other
Miss Prichard's office is at the front
of the building and is an attractive
room, but it is in need of some new
furniture. Wonder if someone won't
offer to give a few chairs or a new
Tea to Be Given.
The Visiting Nurses will give a tea
on next Wednesday at the home of
Mrs. Helen Ladd Corbett. This will
be for their work, but the dispensary,
although it needs help, will not come
before the public at this time. Mrs.
Corbett is president of the People's In
stitute and has always worked loyally
for its interests. She is assisted by a
capable board. On the occasion of
Christmas trees, charity work, enter

PEPSIN NUX IRON and
Sarsaparllla Fine Coarse of Sledlvlne.
Physicians and pharmacists have long
known the desirability and difficulty
of combining iron a superlative tonic
in a blood-purifying medicine.
The combination of the iron with
Hood's Sarsaparllla has i.ow been se
cured through the happy thought of
prescribing Peptiron Pills In connec
tion with the Sarsaparilla the latter
before eating Peptiron Pills after.
In this way the two medicines work
harmoniously, giving four-fold results
In blood-cleansing and upbuilding.
Peptiron Pills include pepsin and

mix vomica, manganese, other tonics,
digestives and laxatives.
What better course of medicine can
you imagine for this season? You get
blood-purifying, appetite-diving, liver

parilla and great strength makers in
Peptiron Pills. Buy these medicines

BILL PROVIDES REFUND
WATER ASSESSMENT TO BK RE
TURNED TO PROPERTY OWNERS.
DRINK HOT TEA
: FOR A BAD COLD :
Get a small package of Hamburg Breast
Tea, or as the German folks call It, Ham
burger Brust Thee," at any pharmacy.
Take a tablespoonful of the tea, put a
cup of boiling water upon It, pour
through a sieve and drink a teacup full at
any time. It is the most effective way to
break a cold and cure grip, r s it opena the
pores, relieving congestion. Also loosens
the bowels, thus breaking a cold at once.
It is Inexpensive and entirely vege
table, therefore harmless. Adv.
Plan Is for Repayment When 6
Cent of Cost of Water Main Is Paid;
Ootlylug Districts Affected.
If the City Council enacts an ordl
nance providing for refund of water
assessments to individual property
owners when the property pays water
revenue amounting to 6 per cent of
the cost of water main construction In
front of the property, tne measure will
result in the refund to many property
owners tnrougnout the city of assess
ments which have been paid in the
las.t seven or eight years. An issue of
$75,000 In 25-year, 4 per cent water
bonds is to be sold to raise money for
the refunds. the bonds will be de
livered April 1 and refunds will be
made -soon after that.
The principal district affected will
be LaurelhuTst. Although it had been
the plan to refund the assessments on
all property in the southeast section
of that district it has been found that
an error was made in tabulations and
the district as a whole does not pay 6
per cent of the cost of laying the
mains. The new plan, therefore, will
enable refunds on improved property
in. tnis District out not unimproved
The same is true also of several
other districts which are sparsely set
tied. Remote pieces of improved prop
erty win be enabled to get the refund
without having to wait until the prop
erty near tnem is built up.
The water mains involved are those
which were laid prior to 1910, under an
old law which provided for construe
tion by property owners on the assess
ment plan the same as streets are im
proved and sewers constructed as at
present. Since then the city has been
taking over these mains as soon as the
revenue from use of water has
amounted to per cent a year on the
cost of construction.
The ordinance which has been In
troduced by Commissioner Daly will
take effect in 40 days if passed.

THIS BIQ FACT is convincing proof of the practical everyday value of the new Britannica. Think
of it 160,000 present owners! In most cases the owner represents a family, and, as the family
averages five persons, the actual number of users is close to 800.000 (totaling the population of a large
city). All of these persons draw constantly on this great source of information, using it in their work
or business, or to enrich their minds and give them a fuller understanding of important subjects.
You don't want the Britannica simply because other people
own it, even though these include the country's leading busi
ness men. manufacturers and merchants, bankers, the heads
of great corporations, lawyers, engineers, scientists, clergy
men and so on. i
But you should own it because of what you can get out of it
and we want you to buy it only for that reason.
The fact that 160.000 persons have bought it, either previ
ously knowing the supreme worth of the Britannica. or find
ing out in what particular way it would benefit them, should
make you want to learn more about it. In view of the mass of
evidence of its usefulness to 160.000 present owners, the ques
tion for you is : Can you afford not to own it ?
Realize the wide scope of this wonderful Library of Knowl
edge facts and information about everything and then
consider the countless times you. too. will profit by having
instant access to its 30.000 pages.

of The Encyclopaedia Britannica. "Handy Volume" Issue,
printed on genuine India paper and the easy plan for pay

When the "Handy Volume" Issue of the Britannica was brought out. and it was possible to make the price so low
that any .one could afford it. thousands of letters were received congratulating us upon the achievement. These
letters constitute the strongest indorsement ever given to any literary and educational work. Here are extracts
from a few, showing what some big men think of the Britannica, especially the popular "Handy Volume" Issue:
EX-JUDGE GARY, head of the U. S. Steel Corporation, says:
"Yoa are to be congratulated on being able in this way to bring this
splendid work within the reach of men and women of moderate means."
ANDREW D. WHITE, formerly President of Cornell University
and ex-Ambassador to Germany, refers to the new Britannica as
"one of the most wonderful sources of information regarding the whole
world . w..
JOHN H. PATTERSON, President of the National Cash Register
Co and a typical successful American, says:
"The Encyclopaedia Britannica is a clearing house of knowledge and a
great help in understanding current events recorded in the daily press."
CHARLES M. SCHWAB, the genius of the Bethlehem Steel Cor
poration, and one of the best known self-made men in the world,
applauds the printing of the new Britannica in the "Handy Volume"
" is bringing the most important and authoritative work of its kind in
the world within reach of those ambitious people of moderate means who
need it most."
' JOSEPH H. CHOATE, lawyer and diplomat, says of the new Bri
tannica: . . . v
"If I could have but one book, I should choose that. "
There's no question about the value of the Britannica to every one. You need it.
and you certainly should have it in its most convenient form, printed on genuine
India paper. But if you want one of these sets, you must act immediately.
