Notice to Delinquent Taxpayers. The delinqent taxes of Wasco counly, as shown on the rolls now in the bands of the sheriff are $60,000. an amount al most equal to the indebtedness of the county. Every citizen will doubtless admit that this state of affairs should not exist, and that all taxes should be collected. On account of hard times in the past the county court Las shown leniency to taxpayers, but that leniency has reached the limit, and the court cannot wait longer on delinquents to make settlements. For this reason a warrant has been attached to each de linquent roll commanding the Bheriff to collect all taxes by seizure and sale of property. With a bountiful crop now in sight, "there can no longer be any rea sonable excuse for the non-payment of taxes. The sheriff is bound by oath to comply with the terms of the warrants attached to the tax rolls for the collec tion thereof, and has no option in the matter. Delinquent taxpayers can save the cost of seizure an 1 sale of property by settling their taxes at once. Robert Keei.y, Sheriff and Tax Collector for Waeco County. Dated, August 4, 1893.

SEE QUR WINDOWS Deafness Cannot be. Cared by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that ia by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is in flamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect bearing, and when it la en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed for ever; nine cass out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous sur faces.
