Puzzles the Assessor.
Mr. Huzan is at a loss to know how
to get at the values of every man's
property. Heretofore real estate has
been assessed at whatever price the
man owning it said anil manv times
this has been much below Its real
value and below what he would think
of selling for This Is the reason the
county is in debt and causes an extra
mill or two to have to be added to
the tuxable proiterty every mi often.
"This." said the assessor "Is a mis.
lake, and every piece of land ought to
be assessed at Its real value. I am
at a loss to know whether to assess
every place at Just what It is valued
at when plaeed on the market. 01

done If Umatilla county is worth a
dollar. It Is worth today from $22.000,.
ofttt to tL'D.iMni.iMn and the assessment
last year was only fti.ltl8.579.ti4. which
Is tho secret of the county's Indebted
ness." Another thing that is puzzling the
Assessor Is iiow he Ik going to get
over the rsises from one township to i
another The light land In the west
end of the county cannot be assessed
a high as the heavier land in other
place. At some place there has to
be a raise ami If the assessor makes ,

Saved Him From Torture.
There Is no more agonizing trouble
than piles. Th constant Itching ami
burning make life intolerable. No po
sition Is comfortable. The torture Is
unceasing. DeWltt's Witch Hazel

disease, cuts, bums, bruises, all kinds
of wounds it Is unequalled. J, S. Gtr
