VIRTUALLY No REDUCTION".
Washington, Aug. 3. The statement
for the first 'month of the new fiscal year
shows an alleged reduction in the public
debt of Sf8,66'2:79a, against about 4.000,000
for July, 1SS4 The reduction for the
month just closed does not affect the prin
cipal of the bonded debt, and afc yet a
matter of fact there has been no reduction
whatever in the sense that the general
reader would suppose in reading the .IScial
announcement of the government's fiscal
operations for July. The reported reduc
tion was obtained by payment of interest on
the debt that is to s iy during the mouth
of July interest due and payabie, and that
accrued, amounted to a certain sum, which
was of course added to the treasury obliga
tions, and that amount, about o,C00,C00,
was paid, leaving the principal of the debt
in precisely the same condition as on June

1. That it shall be the duty of the super
visors of tiie several counties in this state.
in addition to the duties hitherto prescribed j
by law, to cause the destruction, in the uian-n--'r
which to said supervisors shall seem
most effective, of the weed known as the
dagger cockle-burr, where such weed shall
be found growing upon the public highways
and county roads of this state.
2. The road supervisor" shall have the
power to warn out laborers upon the public
highways, for the extripation of said weed,
as iu cases of repairs of suck highways.
3. Any road supervisor, neglecting to
perforin his duty under the piovisious of
this chanter, shall be liable to a tine of not
more than twenty-five, nor less than five'
dol.ars, to be recovered to the use of the
county before any justice of the peace, by;
suit in the name of the county.
4. The owner or occupants of lands shall i
carefully extripste such weed, when the ;

:t the expense of the owner thereof; the ex"
habitually prescribes an article which is lia
ble to awaken an inherited or to create an
abnormal appetite that may blast a life time
ami prove the curse of unborn generations,
assumes a fearful responsibility. It is then -fore
because disease and drugs are such pa
tent factors in the spread of intemperance
that temperance workers so much desire the
science of hygene or the aws of health more
fully taught in our schools.
A knowledge of the laws of heredity is of
equal importance to the cause of temper
ance, for in no sense are the iniquities of the
father visited upon the children, unto the
the third and fourth generation, more inev
itable anil severely than iu the penalties
following the violation of the law governing
the physical constitution of man. The
drunkard transmits to his children and to
bis children's children, uot his own maudlin
foolishness, or his senseless passions or his
morose snllenoess, but those conditions of
tissues and organs induced by the, constant
use of alcohol; the impoverished blood, the
vitiated secretions, the relaxed muscles, the
diseased heart and lungs diseased tiy the
tainted blood circulating tnrough them.
T;ie lower part of the brain being unnatur
ally stimulated, is unduly developed, and
the offspring inherit the grosser animal pro
pensities with proportionate decrease of in
tellect and moral power. Epilepsy, idiocy,
insauitiv, vice and crime are the heirlooms of
the drunkard's offspring.
There are no more powerful argument
against alcohol to the man who loves his
children than its fearful influence upon their
future lives in its transmitted effect upon
their bodies, brains, souls. To make these
effects palpable in all thir fearful reality,
we must understand the action of alcohol
upon the human system. Before we can
comprehend all that is embraced iu the Study
of hygene and heredity we must have some
primary knowledge of anatomy and physiol
ogy; we must understand the phenomena of
digestion, assimilation and nutrition before
we can appreciate the results of the action
of alcohol upon the membranes of the stom
ach and the effects of its vitiated secretions
upon the blood ami upon all the other organs
it hereby the whole aystem is debilitated,
the uer'es shattered and the whole lift
wrecked. Jtiauy Unions are taking up the
study of hygene and heredity; iu this way
v. e hope to reach the mothers, through the
mothers the children, through the mothers
and children we reach the whole world.

Eiglits of te Press.
In a recent libel suit in Rhode Island a
Chief Justice, iu his charge to the jun,
laid down the law on the rights of the press!
as follows: I think that the public news- j
paoer has the right to comment upon and i
criticise in the discharge of public duties.
I think that if the publishers discover what
they consider to bis defects they have a
right to point them out. If there are facts!
waich suggest fault 1 think that the public!
press has. a riifht to criticise ami to censure, j
If in the exercise of this freedom of I
comment they act fairly and honestly, aud
meaning to do what is right, they cannot be
held accountable. It is of great importance
to the public that the newspapers should
have tliis liberty. If theie should be none
to ceusure or to criticise, frauds would grow
more anil more intolerable, to the manifest
peril of the public welfare, and therefore,
you can see that the public have a great iu
teresi in maintaining unshackled the right
of the public press to freely ami fairly crit
icise. Temperance Department.

What have Hygiene and Heredity to do
The laws of Hygiene are those laws which
when put. into practical operation in our
daily lives, teach us to form such habits as
will prt serve health, and prevent disease.
With freedom from disease and suffering
there will be consequent freedom from drugs
a il tonics and stimulants. With the nor
mal appetite of health there is no craving
for stimulants. The depr ived appetite of
the drunkard is either an acquired appetite
inherited indirectly with inherited tenden
cies to disease w hich create the abnormal
appetite, or it is inherited directly from
"triuking ancestors. The physician who

To t he Farmers of Benton and Linn Counties
I desire te remind you of the Tact that I am still in the Warehouse business at my
old stand, and call your attention to the following reasons why I think it will be to your
interest to si ore your grain with me:
1st. Because the O. I'. E. E. Company intend putting a side track to the river, thus
giving us a chance to deal with San Francisco buyers at higher prices.
2nd. I am in a position to take advantage of competition among the different lines of
transportation on the river, aud secure the very lowest freight rates.
3rd. I have had twelve years experience in the wheat business, End can get as much
for your grain as auy ..body else. Sacks always on hand.
Thanking you for liberal support in the past.I respectfully request all myold custom
ers to continue" their patronage, and ask all uew men to call and see me before engaging
alsewhere. I shall make it niy duty, as well as pleasure, to do a straightforward huaincM
