In severing our business connection

reluctance as we have found him to be
in every way a thorough going business

learn that he intends to enter into the

"NO SOOTHING SYRUP FOR HI W-
Editob The Plaixdealeb : Under the
above caption yon mentioned the in
troduction, in the Senate, of a bill by
Seenator Marstsrs for the medical and
surgical care of children. The bill was
introduced by the Senat r by request.
The draftinif of such a bill was prompted
by the fact that within twelve months

their parents or guardians to provide
competent medical attendance. Said
parents or guardians relied upon mira
cle rather than medicine ; to restore the
children, with the above results. The
need of a law requiring medical care in
such cases was most keenly felt at that
time. It does not aim to deprive any
person of recourse to faith or prayer in
restoring the sick, but it does aim to
compel observance of a state law requir-
ing competent medical attendance in
such cases. This seems necessary for
the protection of children against the
ignorance and fanaticism of some pa-
Ynn ctitA tht "Tiw h;ii i H.fi-iVnt
in this respect. It does not define who
shall be considered a competent phvsi-
cian or surgeon." I will sav, the bill
does not need to define who ehall be
aeemea competent. o person is
deemed competent to practice medicine
or surgery in the State of Oregon, who
has not complied with the law regulat
ing the practice of medicine and sur
gery as defined in sections 3794-3S02,

tope the bill nay become a law.
George II. Bexxett.
The Plaxxoealee is not against the
bill and said what it did with an object
in ilew. It knew beforehand that a bill
of that kind would be introduced and it
also was informed of the state of the
public sentiment at Woodburn and the
ostacism that a few devout, faithful
Christian men and women were subject-
edto. We presume that the parente
loved their children and cherished them
and as faithful devoted parents believed
that they did all in power to keep them
in health. The statement "that within
the past twelve months four children
have died in Wcodbnrn. Or., through
te neglect and Tefusal of their parents
or guardians to provide competent med
ical attendance, said parents or guardi
ans relied upon miracle rather than
medicine, to restore the children, with
the above results" This statement con-
veve a wrong impression in this. It
make? the parents to be fanatical, moral
murderers. But as there were over
twenty deaths of children who had med-
ical aid and attendance whose parents ernor of the Philippines. The secretary
depended on pills and not in "faith in maintains that, notwithstanding the

they are apostate from the faith in the

medicine above miracle; perhaps he is
right. But is not "man's extremity

ders miracles, which the brother reads
and preaches about every Sunday, are
true or false. If they are true in all the
ages of the Jewish church and early
Christian church, they are true today.
JJ that faith which grapjKxl hold of God
in the fervent prayer, "I will not let
Thee go unless Thou bless me," pro
duced a blessing in uges past, that faith
exercised will produce a blessing today.
If ever the Christ whose faith was in

THE PEMTENTIARY SCANDAL.
The facts in the case are: A woman
who has been in the penitentiary for
two and a half years is in a delicate con
dition and she charges the parentage
upon the assistant warden. The war
den tries to throw the blame on a trusty
who escaped or was allowed to escape
about ten days ago from the peuitentiary
Governor Chamberlain made an inves
tigation into the affair and suspended
the assistant warden and the druggist
who knew the woman's condition and
did not report the same. The governor

THE PORTLAND STEAL.
-While we would hke to see the legis

are or-Dosed to the bill proposing the
$50.',000 appropriation. That is to say,
we are opposed to the bill in its present
form. According to the bill, the state

To Make Fat.
It ia important to have a clear know
ledge of what the fatting progress is
rhe grown steer, with a framework of
lone overlaid with muscles and increas
ed in hide, requires a certain amount of
nutriment for mere existence. To sap
ply this only enables him to continue ex
istence, but des not appease his apje-
tite, which craves still more food. Of
provender beyond the requirements ot
maintenance is supplied, more or less of
the surplus is converted into fat and
stowed away among the muscular ti
sues of the body, in the bones, under
the hide and about the viscera. That
fat is fuel in the animal economy, for
which nature shows an eagerness by
manufacturing and laying npacertio
quantity agai ist the time of need. Im
pelled by a hearty appetite the steer at
first gains rapidly in fat, gratifying the
feeder in the increase reported by the
scales. After the fattening has pro
gressed a few months the appetite cf ih
steer loses its keen edge, and he shows a
daintiness in taking his food not at first
exliibited. If placed on the scales from
Ume to tune he shows smaller and
smaller gains. Every pound of increase
now requires more jounds of feed than
at first. The fattening process may be
likened to indating a bicycle tire or.foot
ball with air. The operation is rapid
and easy at first, but becomes more and
more difficult until the limit is reached.
Finally the steer, though consuming a
fair amount of feed shows no gain what
ever. He has been fattened to his limit
and though he may be held there for a
time, he will soon begin to retrograde just
as a ripened applegrows poorer in quality
after jerfectien has been reached. The
feeder recognizes this, shoald aim to
fatten bis cattle rapidly and dispose of
them without dalay. To continue fatten
ing longer than demanded by the mark
et, or to hold cattle after once fattened,
adds greatly to the cost.

noticed in your isi-ue of Jan. 22nd, a
synopsis of the proposed bill for the pro
tection of the forests of Oregon from

It appears to me that you probably
have not given the subject of forest pro
tection the attention that the subject
deserves. It may not bo out of place to
say here that the bill that has been pre
sented is largely the result of the efforts
of myself, and that, through the col
umns of The Tiiuliermau lor the past
several months, I have attempted- to
create a public sentiment that would

laws for the protection of Oregon s tim-

The manufacture of this lumber cm'
ployed thousands of men throughout
the state at remunerative wages. The
product realized f 10,000,000, 75 per cent
of which was sold beyond the confines
of the state clear to the Atlantic sea
board and as far south as Honda, to
say nothing of the 52,000,000 feet which
went to the dilierent civilized countries
of the globe.
The lumber interest of the State of
Oregon is the largest single industry
she posesses and hence is entitled to
have such laws passed for its protection
as will provide the greatest good for the

Now, we will stop to consider for

fr the actual labor involved. This es

which go into the labor columns in n:ak

of land. After thee logs to go the mill
it will cost on an averace of $3.00 per

is equivalent to $70 per month, or on

on the tiinlxr land holders, many of

In your criticism you speak " of "an

that when you stop to consider thi

Why should a man who own . a hop
