CHANGE IS ESSENTIAL
Through the Initiation of theChamber
of Commsrc a public meeting has been
arranged for a discussion of the change
of the harbor line In front of upper As
toria mills. The purpose of harbor lines
Is, or should be, to conserve the inter
ests of the port. They are Imaginary
lines beyond which the building of
docks and wharfs to forbidden. The
' line from the buoy ataton to the O. R.
ft N. dock and in front of the upper As
toria mills runs a somewhat ilgsag
course and la for the most part In shal
low water. In many places the water
is only 14. 15 and IS feet at the extreme
outer limit for dock building. ThU la
a serious handicap for the mills that
would engage In foreign shipping. In
fact. It Is prohibitive bo far as upper
town mills are concerned since vessels
for the foreign trade are not being
chartered on account of the lighterage
charges. This is a situation not to be
overlooked In considering a change of
the harbor line. The success of tha
mills and lumber factories we now
haw 'means the establishment of more.
If one mill can do a profitable export
business, others can. and every foreign
ship loaded here means the expenditure
direct of $1500 to J2500, aside from the
maintenance of the mills with their reg
ular employes. It Is not contended that
the harbor line should be disturbed at
any one point of the port to the detri
ment of another point, but the present
demand by new commerce for a change
Is of such Importance to the business in
tnwts of the town that it de-servos
most serious consideration. The proper
step was taken by the Chamber of
Commerce in asking for a new survey
by government officials who should be
competent to judge of the effects of a
harbor line change. The chamber will
disc uss the matter at Its meeting Mon-
'day night, preliminary to the general
mass meeting to be held at the Invita
tion of Major iAngntt on the 4th of
next month. Monday nlghfs meeting
should hrmg out those interested direct
ly and Indirectly in the Astoria future.

OLD SORES, ULCERS. ABSCESSES
- The best evidence of a bad condition of the blood and unhealthy state of
the system, is an old festering sore, running ulcer, or abscess. They show

are left in the system to clog and poison the blood. So thoroughly does
the poison permeate the system that every little scratch, cut or bruise
inflames and festers. Everything aooui

places becoming cancerous if not
treated promptly and in the right
way. Washes, salves and ointments .
are good for external use, but they
can't stop the discharge or change
the condition of the blood, and for
this reason the sore never heals per
manently. Not until the blood is purged of
impurities and the system cleansed
of all harmful substances should the
ulcer heal, or the effect upon the sys

out and removes the cause of the

up the polluted, sluggish blood

is driven from the system the sore
begins to heal, new flesh forms and

' Three years are a common boil ap
peared on tha calf of my limb. Mot yield
ing to simple home remedies, I consulted
a physician, who prescribed a poultice,
flax seed, supposedly. By soma fearful
mistake X wa given oorrosive subli
mate, and after having it on for a fair
minutes I could endura th pain no
longer, so took off th applioatioa and
found that my limb from th calf to the
ankle was in aa awful oonditlon. I im.
mediately sent for another physician,
who told me I had been poisoned. My
limb from the calf to the ankle was on
solid inflamed sore. I was advised to
begin B. S. 8., and improred rapidly
under it use, but about this time I had
an attack of typhoid fever, and this set
tied in the original sore. This, of oouree,
caused a back set, but having ooafldeno
ia th ability of 8. 8. B., I began it agaia
as soon as X was over th fever, and to
make a long story short, was completely
