Now we are told by scientists that
there is no excuse for short women re­
maining short; that is if they want to
get into the tall class. All that Is neces­
sary to increase their stature is a system
of leg-pulling. It seems to work differ­
ent with men, for we have noticed that
the men whose legs are most frequent­
ly pulled are apt to be “short.”
T he Supreme Court has affirmed
the judgment of the circuit court for
Klamath county, in the ease of B. S.
f erns, appellant, vs. J. P.|Lee. It was
held that where trial was had without
t. jury and the court made findings of
fact and conclusions of law, but these
were lost for a time, the judgment is
nevertheless valid and the findings
subsequently found may be written in­
to the records.
C hicago ,the second city in America,
may be threatened with bankruptcy.
Suita for damages against the city ag­
gregating •38,0CO,OOO are pending, and
should judgment be had In half of these
cases insolvency will be the result.
Most of these damage cases are for per­
sonal injuries resulting from defective
sidewalks. Though not as large as
Chicago, Medford had best take warn­
S enators should be elected by a di­
rect vote of the people. But until that
can be provided for, and, popular as
the idea is, amending the Constitution
to put it into force will be slow busi-
nes. State conventions or primary
elections should settle the matter in ad­
vance of the meeting of the Legislature
and thus leave that body with noth­
ing to do in the premises but ratify the
choice previousy expressed by the
people at the polls.
T he time wm when a congressman
or senator could live in Washington on
* salary of $2500 a year, and when the
president was content to get along on
•25,000. But times have changed. Con­
gressmen raised their salaries to 15000,
and many of them find it impossible to
keep "soul and body” together on that
amount. The president, too, finds that
he can’t “entertain” as he desires on
the paltry sum of 150,000 a year.
These are indeed strenuous times for
the poor office-holders. It is a wonder
that a lot of them don't ask to be re-
tired to private life.
W oman suffrage will be given a
trial in Australia. The coming federal
elections there will have an unusual
significance, because for the first time
the entire female citizenship of a conti­
nent will exercise the unrestricted
right of suffrage. Over 860,000 woman
voters are registered, and, needless to
say, such a great increase of the fran­
chise has introduced uncertainties into
the election sufficient to cause even
the most experienced politicians to lose
their prophetic bearings entirely.

S ecretary B eckman of the Lum-
barmen’■ Association states that
more than 300 new mills were erected
in the Pacific Northwest during last
year, that the market for tbe common
grades of lumber which constitute
seventy-five per cent of the entire out­
put to flooded, and that the values
have decreased to a minimum, and
that 250 mills have already closed and
that many more will soon be compelled
to either close or else go into the bands
of receivers, unless relief in the present
condition be found in the establish­
ment of new markets.
T he death of William C. Whitney
removes a man who has always stood
high in the estimation of tbe Ameri­
can people, and deservedly so. A msn
of sterling character and conspicuous
ability, he has for many years been re­
garded as one of the foremost citizens
of the country. As Secretary of the
Navy he inaugurated the policy that
has resulted in our occupying our pres­
ent enviable position as a naval power,
and he may very properly be referred
to as “the father of the American
navy.” His death will be especially re­
gretted by those members of the Demo­
cratic party who have regarded him as
a logical candidate for president.
T he old saying .that “fire is a good
•e vast but a dreadful master” is well
exemplified in the unprecedented de­
struction of property in Baltimore by
the fire which it seemed utterly impos­
sible to subdue. When the fire king
once gets under headway, with an
abundance of material to feed its vora­
cious demands, the resisting efforts of
man seem a mere mockery. In a mo­
ment the earnings of a lifetime go up
in smoke and every means of opposi­
tion are fruitless. If a breeze is not al­
ready blowing, the onward rush of the
fire will mutually create one, and build­
ings which have wont to be boasted as
fireproof are as but the easiest oNcom-
bustible material. The beautiful city
ot Baltimore will have the sympathy of
tbe entire world in her awful misfor­

ers have contracted their 1904 crop,the
ruling prioe being 17 cents.
The organization of a four-team base­

Ashland, Medford, Jacksonville and
Grants Pass. If the latter place will
not come in, then an effort will be
made to get Gold Hill to join. Four
games a week will be played during
the season, two gameB in each of the
four towns every other week, says the

Baltimore, Md., Feb. 11.—Three

where they were hte nloaded into carts

Besides this force, 700 railroad work­

to take down the pillars and girders
left standing around the ruins, which

cost about $2,000,000.

Physicians Unable to Say When Crisis
Will Occur.
Washington, Feb. 11.—Senator Han­
na's condition remains practically un
changed. Tbe restlessness which fa­
tigued him Tuesday night has been
followed by periods of comparative
quiet and sleep during yesterday, and
the lrrrltabllity of the stomach has
again partially yielded to treatment
It is this feature of the case that the
physicians are guarding zealously
against, as they realise that If any
complications develop In the senator’s
distressingly weak condition the re­
sult may be fatal quickly.
The doctors are not yet able to pre­
dict with any certainty when the cri­
sis in the case will occur. All they
know for certain Is '.hat the senator
has had the fever continuously for
eleven days, and the disease, they say,
generally runs its course in three or
four weeks. The doctors Bay they are
satisfied with the progress of the case,
although they do not conceal their ap­
prehension that unforeseen complica­
tions may arise at any time.

will investigate the matter before re
plying. It is believed that the stock-
men on the Washington ranges will
object seriously to the importation of
any great number of cattle to the profit
of California stockmen. It is a ques­

of this state can legally prevent the
importation of clean cattle for feed­
ing purposes.

Your Kidneys.
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood.
All the blood in your body passes through
ycur kidneys once every three minutes.
The kidneys are your
blood purifiers, they fil­
ter out the waste or
impurities in the blood,
if they are sick sr cut
of order, they fail to do
their work.
Pains, aches and rheu­
matism come from ex­
cess of uric acid in the
blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick er unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart Is
over-workiag in pumping thick, kidney-
poisoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin­
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mtstake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
ind the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is
soon realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distressing cases
and is sold on its merits
