Window glass is a necessity in all
northern latitudes, and yet the people
of the United States support the policy
of a high tariff that prevents compe
tition In that necessary article. The
duty on window glass was Increased
nearly 100 per cent by the passage of
the Dingley bill and was intended to
be prohibitive of the imj>ortation of
glass manufactured in foreign coun
tries. Having procured this monopoly
of window glass, the combine that con
trols the manufacture of it has dou
bled the price, and the market is much
oversupplied. Instead of reducing the
price, the trust shut down the facto
rlea, and no window glass has been
manufactured by the trust since last
spring, and there is still a large stock
on hand that is awaiting a market.
The glass blowers are therefore idle
and, having formed a labor trust of
their own to control wages and re
strict the number of workingmen and
entered into a combination with the
window glass trust not to furnish glasu
blowers for independent or rival fac
tories, they have cut off al) avenue ot
employment until the trust can start
the fires again.
This is protection run mad, to the un
doing of the American people.
The window glass trust is protected
by the tariff of 60 to 100 per cent and
is charging double what its product is
worth. The labor trust is paid enor­
mous wages when employed, but that
is less than half the time, so the yearly
Income of the glass blowers is not

The Oregon game law has been very
effective this season, so far as the
market hunters near the state lino are
concerned. There have been none on
the Oregon side of Little Klamath
Lake, and all the hunters on Tulo
Lake are on the other side, thanks
to Mont. Hutchinson, deputy game war

sawmills in Southern Oregon, as well
as tho big sawmills of the Booth-Kelly
Lumber Co. and the Pacific limber
Co., have been closed for an indefinite
period on account of lack of cars for
shipping their product. Nearly all the
large sawmills aloug the line of rail­
road in Western Oregon are seriously
affected from the same cause. These
companies have spent much time and
energy in procuring markets for their
products, and this work will practically
prove valueless hereafter if they cannot;
get cars to ship their products. Mills
in others states will get the orders that
have been heretofore coming to Ore-.
gon. The railroad company cannot act

striking personality, but he holds the
balance of power. Before any extrava­
gant idea can establish itself it must
convert the average man. He is very
susceptible and takes a suggestion so
readily that it seems to prophesy the
complete overthrow of the existing or­
der of things. But was ever a conver­
sion absolute? The best theologians
say no. A great deal of the old Adam
is always left over. When the average
man takes up with a quixotic notion,
only so much of it is practically
wrought out as be is able to compro
hend. The old Adam of common sense
continually asserts itself. The natural
corrective of quixotism is Sancho Par»
zaisin. The solemn knight, with bis
bead full of visionary plans, is follow­
ed by a squire who is as faithful as
bis nature will [>ermit Sancho has no
theories and makes no demands on the
world. He leaves that sort of thing to
his master. He has the fatalism which
belongs to ignorant good nature and
the tolerance which is found in easy­
going persons who have neither ideals
nor nerves. He has no illusions, though
he has all the credulity of ignorance —

Ilka If you take Kodoi. By tho use of this
remedy disordered digestion and diseased
stomachs are so completely restored to
health, and the full performance of their
functions naturally, that such foods as would
tie one Into a double-bow-knot are eaten
without even a “rumbling“ and with a poeb
ttve pleasure and enjoyment. And what is
mere—these foods are assimilated and
transformed into the kind of nutriment that
la appropriated by the blood and tissuea.
Kodoi is the only digestant or combination
ft digestants that will digest all classes of
lead. In addition to this fact, it contains, in
assimilative form, the greatest known tonic
and reconstructive properties.
Kodoi cures indigestion, dyspepsia and all
disorders arising therefrom.
Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, dis­
courages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor
and cheerfulness soon
disappear when the kid­
neys are out of order
or diseased.
Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncommon
for a child to be bom
afflicted with weak kid­
neys. If the child urin­
ates too often, if the
the flesh or if, when the child
reaches an age when it should be able to
control the passage, it is yet afflicted with
bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cause of
the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of the
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as
most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made mis-
erable with kidney and bladder trouble,
and both need the same great remedy.

This was an action to recover dam­

an agreement made in excess of his
authority. The Supreme Court holds,
as did the lower court, that “an agent
who makes a contract on behalf of
his principal in excess of bls au­
thority is, on the repudiation of the
agreement by the principal, personal­
ly liable thereon, though be made no

Lake county, tespoudeol, vs. A. J.
Neilon et al., appellants f o;u Jackson
county, H. K. Hanna, judge, reversed;
opinion by Justice Wolvtrton.
Neilon was sheriff of Lake county,
and dtfeidants J. Frank), George
Jammerthal, A. McCallen and J. E.
Bernard were his sureties. Neilon de­
faulted, and this suit was brought to
recover on his < fficlal undertaking,
which was executed May 6, 1899. At
the trial the jury was instructed that
the sureties would be liable for
money collected by Neilon before the
undertaking was given and still in
his hands and that it would be pre­
sumed that he still bad in his hand-
all money collected and not turned
over to the county. This presump-
ti m, the Jury was told, could be over­
come only by direct and positive evi-
d nee. The Supreme Court holds
that the presumption may be over­
come by either direct or indirect evi­
dence, and for this error the case is
reversed and remanded for new trial.
