"The osteopaths are trying to bluff
the State Board of Medical Examiners,"
said a prominent member of that board
yesterday, "and they try to bluff Legis
latures and jndges into permitting them
to openly violate the law. I have even
received threatening letters telling me
what the violators of the law would do
to me if I presisted in this matter, but
this does not deter me in the least.

on the sympathy of juries in the lower

braggadocio has had the effect of mak

ever to prosecute violators of the law."

be taken up.

THE DOQ IN THE MANUER.
Delinquent tax lists arc now being
published in a number of the counties of
this state. Regarding such publications
the Oregon statutes provicd that these
lists shall be set in type not larger than
nonpareil and shall be paid for at a rate
not exceeding 25 cents per line. It is
noticeable that in Douglas county a
much larger type is being used, and it
therefore becomes the duty of the coun
ty officials to proportionately reduce tho
rate per line, in comformity with both
the letter and tho spirit of the law. The
county debt is now piling up rapidly
and all grafts should be 6trictly cut off.
For the past ten years all the tax
lists of the county have been set up
in .the same kind of type as set up
this year. A large number of the
counties have used the same kind and
style of machine type this year. So
far as the Plaindealeu man is con
cerned he did not know the law in
the case or it would have been carried
out, not only in the letter, but in the
spirit; and if a mistake has been made
will submit.to a just reduction. At the

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications as they cannos
reach tho deceased portion of tho ear.
There is only one way to enro deafness,
and that is bv constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an intlamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
tlamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, ami when it is entire
ly closed, deafness is the result, and un
less the inilamation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its norninl con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever ; nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous services.
We will givo Ono Hundred Dollors for
