The great, moral and religions

been requested to publish the follow
ing Rule XXiy, of the Oregon
State Board of Health:
It shall be the duty of all school
boards in all the, districts of what
ever class in the State of Oregon, to
prohibit the entrance into any of the
public schools of the State, of all
children not previously vaccinated (the
evidence of which is shown by the
scar), without proper vaccination;
and it will be the duty of the. teacher
or teachers in any of the public

a most desperate fight to prevent the
spread of the devouring element Al
ready hay to the value of $60,000 has
gone up in smoke, and cattlemen will
be left to face the winter without a
straw to feed their immense herds.
Night is made hideous by the hor

over the plain and by day dense clouds
of black smoke obscure the heavens,
Tules, growing to the height of six
feet, furnish excellent food for the
destructive element and the rich sod
is afire to a depth of several feet
Firefighters fall in their tracks
from exhaustion and are revived only
to resume tho battle for their homes
and property.
A rancher, surrounded by the
flames, escaped certain death by mak

the establishment of a Western Catho-J

Saxon countries which might be call
ed semi-independent of Rome, has just
been completed, according to a Tri
bune dispatch from Rome. Evidence
was found of the existence of a move
ment of this kind among the advanced
section of the clergy, especially the
French and Irish, who wish to join
forces with America to give to the
church a more modern and liberal im
pluse. Two Filipinos, Gomez and Kalbasa,
have been arrested in Manila, charged
with being concerned in fomenting
the disturbance which . have lately
taken place in the northern province
of Luzon, where a guerilla warfare
has been carried on for some time

At, the Illinois Methodist conference
now in session at Quincy, delegates to
the general Methodist conference to be
held in Los Angeles, Cnl., next May
have been instructed to support the rule

High Society in Spain.
The Eociety circles of Madrid have re
ceived a sensational shock by the arrest
of three of the most beautiful among the
young leaders of the aristocracy, on a
charge of fraud. Tho accused are the
Marchionoss Maria Reina, daughter of
Gen. Reina, formerly minister of war
and former governor general of Cuba ;
alto sister-in-law of Gen. Batcaran, chief
of King Alfonso's military cabinet;
Dona Engracia Sanchez, daughter of a
general who has been governor general
of Cuba; and the Countess Carlotta
Duran, daughter of Gen. Duran, former
ly minuter of war, and at one time pro
fetaqr to King Alphonso.
The ladles are charged with defraud
ing .the bonk of Spain of f 60,000 with a
bill of exchtnge forged in the name of
Garcia Guitorrej, a banker. Their al
leged accomplice, who signed the bill,
was the notorious turgor, Mariano Con
de. The forgery has been known to some
of the most eminent men of the king
dom' for some time, and they, as well
as -King Alfonso, tried to prevent
the arrests, but the scandal was so great
the authorities were com pel leu to act.
It is. reported that the mansion where
the ilarchionew Maria Reina and Dona
Sanchez lived together was nightly the
scene of banqueting and gambling.
A. O. U. W. Sapper. Hungry Lav
yer. Red Box. DotUr Bill.
For genuine flimflaming commend us
to the A. O. U. W., and theirs is no raw
graft either It is smooth, finished
work, such as a confidence man might
be proud of. It is no "stick up" like
Hitchcock hands to the people, or May
or Williams to the Portland gamblers ;
but is accomplished work bandied by
artists in the business. It appeals to a
man through his most vulnerable point
his stomach ; bat nevertheless is calcu
lated to separate a mark from his mon
ey. It is master degree work and is not
peddled out to uncle Reuben; but is
framed up for the wise guy. At their
box supper held in the opera house on
Monday evening tbe A. O. U. W. had
for sale a great number of beautiful box
es, each supposed to contain an elegant
lungs. These boxes were sold to the
highest bidder and, according to a time
honored custom at tuch functions, the
purchaser was entitled to feast on the
contents of tbe purchased box with the
fair donor of said box for a partner.
Box after box was sold and snatched up
at what appeared to the hungry lawyer,
with the fiweet water running down his
chin, as great bargains. Presently the
auctioneer lovingly lifted a large red
box, neatly tied with white ribbons,
raised it to a position level with his chin
and shouted: "Much'm I offered for
this charming young lady's box7" The
box bore a label on one end marked
"men's shirts" and the eyes of our
hungry lawyer sparkled. His mental
comment was that the box contained
at least (our square meals, reasonably
worth 25c each, and he then determined
to owe that box. Now, here is where
the lawyer was easy. He expected to
find a winter's grub stake in a box
marked shirts. But suppose the label
were true and that the contents were
really shirts well, he needed a clean
shirt anyway. "Going at an 'af, an 'af,
an 'af," yelled the auctioneer. "A dol
lar," says John T. Notshort, the lawyer.
"Dollar'm offered, goin't a dollar'n
soldi" With a satisfaction "beyond a
reasonable doubt" the disciple of Black
stone reached for bis lady's box. It
was pretty enough and the consolation
of ownership was probably intended as
value received, for tbe actual contents
were neither food nor raiment.
The box with its contents, three cu
cumbers, four tomatoes, a slice of
squash and a little green cabbage, can
be seen at the Board of Trade. John T.
Notshort thinks he was buncoed and

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
No one who is acquainted with its
good qualities can be surprised at the
great popularity of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It not only cures colds and
grip effectually and permanently, but
prevents these diseases from resulting
in pneumonia. It is aUo a certain cure
for croup. Whooping cough is not
dangerous when this remedy is given
It contains no opium or other harmful
substance and may be given as confl
dently to a baby as to an adult. It is
also pleasant to take. When all of these
i facts are taken into consideration it is
! not surprising that people in foreign

willing to take other after having once
used it. For sale by A. C. Marsters and

counsel for the men thrown into the

secure their release on bond he will
apply for writs of habeas corpus in

the men may secure their freedom

Jndge Advocate McClelland, when
asked why the entire force was ar

Roosevelt and Labor Chiefs.
President Roosevelt proposes to settle
the controversy with union labor through
a heart-to-heart talk with tho labor
union leaders. Ho hns told tho mem-
burs of tho administration that he has
nothing to fear from what he has
done in connection with the controversy
which has developed at the government
printing office. He wants to tell the
labor leaders the same thing.
So confident is the President of the
justice of the stand he has taken, and so
sure is he that the labor leaders are
broad minded and fair, that he will risk
all in a frank discussion of the case of
Miller, the bookbinder, about whom
there has been so much talk.
The President has adviied John Mit
chell that he wants to meet him and his
colleagues some time this week at the
White Houeo. The President will tell
the men that ho has dono nothing ex
cept to eee that fair play is exercised and
that tho statuates of the law were rigid-,
ly obeerved. He will seek to show that
a narrow construction was not put on
these statutes but that they were taken
in their broadest application, and that
when the case came up to him there was
no other course open.
The President hopes to reach an un
derstanding with the union labor peo
ple about tho government priming of
fice. He will be fortified with confiden
tial reports which have been in course of
preparation for some weeks. From
these he will cite facts to show that any
thing but a satisfactory condition has
developed in the government printing
office because o( the blind adherence to
union demands. He will point out where
certain changes could be made that
would be of direct value to both the
cause of union labor and the govern
ment. Work oa. tbe

Cause of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is caused by a
bacillus or germ which exists plentifully
in street dirt. It is inactive so long as
exposed to the air, but when carried be
neath the skin as in the wounds caused
by percussion caps or rusty nails, and
wnen me air is exciaueu tne germ is
roused to activity and produces the most
virulent poison known. These germs
may be destroyed and all danger of lock
jaw avoided by applying Chamberlain's
Pain Balm freely as soon as the injury
is received. Pain Balm is an antisepic
and causes cuts, bruises and like injuries
to heal without maturation and in one'
third tho time required by the usual
treatment. It is for salo by A. C
