of their picked men did not come.

Religious Notes from Philomath.
The U. B. Conference of the Willamette
Valley held its session at Philomath last
week. The Rev. E. C. Wyatt, formerly an
instructor in Philomath College, was elected
to take charge of the Benton conntv circuit.
On last Sabbath Bishop Castle, during
morning services, preached in the grove to a
large audience of attentive listeners. The
Bishop, who in more than oiie sense is the
tallest preacher in the conference, looked at
the high stand before him and humorously
indicated the possibility of the stand being
bnilt for a taller man than he. Around the
altar were the young ministers and the
ipostles of the church to whom the main
gist of the sermon was directed, though it
was applicable to many others. He said to
the many ministers who are now following
other avocations, that they once were called
to the ministry, they answered the call for
many years, and now some are not preach
ing. He then very eloquently asked:
"When did God withdraw that call?" His
sermon was rife with expressions that bad
their desired effect. After the sermon the
collection was seventy dollars. During the
evening services the Bishop took suddenly
sick, and for a time was not expected to
survive. At this writing he is slowly recovering.

posed in the possession of Judge Taylor,

to audit these expenses. The medical men
were handled without mercy by several
senators: It was charged that they had
butchered tbe president, and the story of
his lingering illness iu this city and Elberou
was with its concomitant?, vicious surgical
operations, pus cavities' and other detail.1,
related to show that the proposed appro

It is an evident fact that Farmers' wives
are atilicted with many diseases which are
the result i.f overwork, lhey are constant
ly on one ceaseless routine of toil from day
light at morning until late at night. No
change, no relaxtion, no rest J Farmers
should note this fact and bo forewarned be
fore it is too late. It is astonishing what
an amount of laber the wives of farmers
perforin. Many of them get up and have
breakfast ready liefore their husbands are
out of bed. Then it is work, work, work
until near midnight, their minds during the
time being constantly occupied with their
duties, and with thinking of how the food
is to bo supplied, when the washing and
ironing is to be done, when time can be
spared to scrub the floor, how the children
are to be clothed and kept tidy, and innum
erable other things not necessary to men
tion, all of which combine to overwork aud
break down the strongest woman in the
land. In no case is it safe to be continually
thinking upon any one thing, and in cases
where the braiu has been weakened by. too
great a strain upon it, thereby producing
insanity, epilepsy, yertigo, hysterics, female
weakness, general debility, and a multitude
of other diseases, the remedy is Rest and a
few bottles of Dr. S. A. Richmond & Co.'s
Samaritan Nervine. It acts directly upon
the nervous ceutres and invigorates and
strengthens the whole S3jstem. Many ladies
have retrained irom nsing oamaruan ner
vine on account of an existing .prejudice
against advertised me licines. Let us ask
a question: Are you prejuaicen against
sewing machines because you have seen
them advertised, or can you doubt the in
genuity and skill required in their invention?
Again, would you retuse to insure your
house because the company advertised that
it had paid millions of dollars in losses and
yet had a capital of several millions left ?
Do such advertisements shake your confi
dence and create prejudice T Then why re
fuse to credit the testimony of those who
have found Samaritan Nervine to be all
that is claimed for it in overcoming those
ailments peculiar to your sex ? The follow
ing statement speaks for itself:

Dr. Richmond Dear Sir: This is to cer
tify that my wife had fits for .thirty-five
years. They would last her for about one
hour and sometimes longei. I happened to
hear of your medicine, and sent for pome of
it. She had no more fits after she took
the first dose. She is now permanently
cured, and. her health is a great deal bet
ter than it has been for twenty years or
more. You are entirely at liberty to nse
her picture and this testimonial in any
manner which you please, and may sign my
name to it. We owe you this much at
least for what you have done for her.
