Hillsboro, Jan. 10. The project of
building the electric motor line from Port
land to Beaverton in this county is again
revived. The plan now adopted is to use
the West Portland steam motor to the sum
mit of the hill this side of Portland and
then leave that line in a branch to Beaver
ton. This will require only six miles of
new road. A company of New York cap
italists are the promoters. The question of
subsidy is all that seems to be in the way o
the extension this spring.
The old donation of Col. T. R. Cornelius,
being a block of over five hundred acres of
the finest land in the county, is to be di
vided and sold in small tracts.

the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness and that is by
constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused
by an inflamed condition of the mucuous
lining of the eustachian tube. When this
tube gels inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it
entirely closed deafnessa is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed ferever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucuous surfaces.

WHEN WAR IS DEaLARED.
Against a roan's happiness by his stomach
the enemy may be pacified and brought
speedily and easily to terms. That potent
regulator of digestion, Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, disciplines the rebellious organ
thoroughly. Indigestion arises from weak
ness of the stomach and the food in it, for
want of the power to digest, decomposes
and acidifies, giving rise to heartburn, flatu
lence and pain, besides a multitude of
symptoms both changeful and perplexing.
But peace soon reigns when 'the great
stomachic is resorted to and used with per
sistence. Dyspepsia gives rise to morbid
discomposure of mind, and even sleepless
ness and hypochondria in chronic cases. To
the complete dismissal of these the Bitters
is fully adequate.- Liver complaint, consti
pation, debility rheumatism and malaria are
completely subdued by this genial medicine.

Many forget that Corvallis is a town of
refined and aesthetic tastes, rivaling, in
some respects, cultured Boston. "Tommy
Ryan, of Bridgeport, and Billy Smith, of
Boston," says an exchange, "fought six
rounds at the Casino in Boston last Tuesday
night, resulting in a draw." From this we
see that Boston has stolen our laurels in
claiming Billy as her child, when in truth
he is one of us. But such is f al e.

the Oregon commissioner to the midwinter

thu' .asm for the exposition in general and
for Oregon's part in it in particular. Mr.
Mitchell says: "Oregon's building is all
ready to ship. , It will be here within a few
days. And what is better than that, we
have got money with which to erect it and
to stock it, with a creditable exhibit. We
have got money 'in good hard coin and the
exposition management may reply upon it
that our exhibit will be everything it should
be. We shall net rely entirely upon what
we had at Chicago by any means, but will
augment it in every way and as a matter of
fact, the greater part of the exhibit will be
entirely new. It is true that we have been
a little late iu getting thoroughly started,
but we intend to make np for lost time by
pushing things and pushing them hard."
