reached by the city authorities this
afternoon - with the ; knowledge that

Blver valley will not have a crop of
strawberries this season. On Saturday
afternoon a meeting of the persons In
terested was held and a motion to ac
cept the company's proposition was unan
imously voted down. A substitute meas
ure, consisting of the appointment of
five fruit men to confer with the rep
resentatives of the water company was
passed. The following were selected:
R. A. Frans. Fred Bailey, N. C Evans,
E. N. Benson and A. C. Staten. This
eommlttee will confer with Mr. Wagnon
Who represents the water company. The
farmers have been paying 38 per inch
f'neh year for water and the proposition
of the. company to compel them to pay
350 per inch is considered by them" noth
ing but highway robbery. The com
pany, though, is very heavily in debt
and Its' backers refuse to make the nec
essary repairs unless the farmers raise
the proposed 330.000. Another meeting
will be held tomorrow during which the
question will be further discussed.

The Valley Improvement company, the

Mrs, Mary Jane Cook died at St.

yeseerday afternoon at the age o,f 76
years, Erysipelas was the immediate
cause of her death. Though she lived
In Portland for the' last 30 year little
is known of her, i j ,
Her sister, a Mrs. McDonald, resides
In the city, but her address is unknown,
and air attempts to learn .her where
abouts have been in vain. Mrs. Mc
Donald occasionally visited her. sister,
but never .told where she lived. Their
relations were peculiar in the extreme.
Mrs. McDonald did all the visiting, Mrs.
Cook rewarding each tlsit with a gift
of money. Jf. the visit was prolonged
about an hour Mrs. Cook would tell her
it was time for her to go. as thev were
likely to quarrel if they were longer to
gether. u , -
Mrs. Cook for several ' years was an
attendant at the old -East Portland asy
lum, which Btoofl. near Belmont and East
Twelfth streets, in the Hawthorne tract.
She Is known to have, laid by consid
erable money; with a part of which she
bought the residence property, on the
corner of East; Eighth and East Oak
streets, where she lived for several
years. The doors and windows of her
dwelling were barred and cross-barred
so that they , resembled a jail : rather
than a private residence, she was very
suspicious of every one. constantly In
dread of being robbed. She never ad
mitted anyone to her dwelling. ( When
footstep were heard approaching she
would cal) through the bars to the In
truder to be gone, that she wanted noth
ing but for him to go away.
She was a native of Scotland and re
sided in Boston, Mass., and later . in
Philadelphia.- Pa She. was married to i
a seafaring 'man named Cook, i While.
Revi J. W. Brougher was born In Jen
nings county, Indiana, January, 1870.
He was educated, however, in Oakland,
CaL, and at the Rochester Theological
seminary, New York. He was given the
degree of DrD. hy Carson Newman
college of Tennessee. His first pastorate
was in Peterson, N. J., where he built up
the largest Baptist church In the state.
For the past four years and. a half he
has been In. Chattanooga .Tenn as pas
tor of the Flrat Baptist church of that
city. During that time nearly 600 peo
ple united with the church. The con
gregations: were always large and fre
quently overflowed the auditorium. Ho
had a strong hold upon the city and it
was oniy alter, tne most strenuous effort
to retain him that the church accepted
his resignation and permitted him to
come to Portland. He preached his ini
tial sermons at the White Temple yes
terday to. congregations that crowded
the large auditorium, i The church was
beautifully and elaborately decorated
with palm, ferns and ut flowers. ' Tho
music under, the direction of Mr.
J. W. Belcher, was exceptionally fine
and the entire service was arranged for
the purpose of giving the new pastor a
royal welcome. If the services yester
day are any index to the future, a very
prosperous and happy pastorate may
safely be prophesied for Dr. Brougher
and the people of the First Baptist
church. He spoke last night on "The
Religion for Today." He took for -his
text. Acts 16:30, "What Muat I Do
to Be Saved?" Also I Timothy, 4:8,
"Godliness is profitable for the life that
now Is and for the life to come." He
said: ... ', ."' , ;

necessarily mean a new religion. It Is
the old-time religion adapted to the

"It is eternally true that two times

It must deal with the problems of the

naye tne sins or the past forgiven is no

Do Happy VIion You Eat. ,
Tho Reasons Why
Peonle who have never . lived ,nn a
farm and "witnessed tho Kastronomlc
feats of a hungry hired man have cer
tainly missed a sight for gods and men.
After six long hours of good, hard, hot
work in the harvest-field, he gets his
Xeet under a -.well-laden table: and woe
unto the good things' thereon. The
manner in which he stows away the fat
of the land Is - no delusion. Yellow
legged fried chickens, green peas, new
potatoes, good cornbread, hunks of frenh
butter, cherry pies and numerous other
wholesome and substantial articles of
diet disappear one after the other In
rapid and regular succession. That meal
Is well worth all the hours of hard
work he has put in to earn It, and mauy
a man who U1 regarded as being more
fortunate than he, would pay hand
somely for the hired man's capacity to
enjoy such a meal. A stomach like his
would be worth a fortune of any man's
money, who suffers the constant and
continuous pangs of dyspepsia.. Such a
stomach every one can have, rich and
poor alike, and for a price that is within
the reach of all. -
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are the
dyspeptic's certain relief throughout the
regions of the earth. They act in a nat
ural, mild but firm, determined manner,
and never fall to cure dyspepsia. They
do the work of your, stomach for you
and digest your food Just as your stom
ach used to when It was well. You can
prove this by putting your food , Into
a glass jar with one of the Tablets and
sufficient water and you will see the
food dlaented In lust the same time am
the digestive fluids of the stomach would
ao it. xnat wm satisfy, your mind.

boy -or girl,
Stuarts Dyspepsia Tablets act In "a
natural way, because-they contain only
tl)e natural elements of the gastiio Jtiices
and ether -digestive fluids of the stom
ach. .' )t makes no difference what condi
tion the stomach' Is; la, they go right
ahead of their own accord and do their
wok. They krtoW their business and
surrounding conditions do not influencn
them in the least. - i They thus relievo
the weak stomach of all its burdens
and give .It its much-needed rest and
permit it to become strong and healthy.
Nature restores and rebuilds the wusted
tissues of the stomach just as she re
stores 'any other injured tissues of the
body or a broken bone when -not inter
fered with. All Interference with- Na
ture's work of restoration Is entirely
prevented by the use of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets.- ,.
, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for
sale by all druggists at 0 cents a box.
They are so well known and their pop
ularity Is so great that no druggint
would think of being without them. In
fact physicians are prescribing them all
over the land and if your own doctor Is
real honest with you,, he will tell yon
frankly that there Is nothing on earth
so good for dyspepsia as Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets. .
