It is now spring time and is the
time of year when everyone who has
the proper amount of pride about

Mayor Hailey, the council Instructed

sidewalk and keep all trash off the
walk in front of his plnce.
Not only will the sidewalks along
Main and Court streets have to be
kept looking neat and clean, but the
walks all over town will be attended
to and every house holder and resi
dent will be asked to look after the
walk in front of his property or place
and see that dirt does not congregate
on the boards until it becomes un
sightly as it has at times in the past.
The council has concluded to act on
the suggestion of the 'Commercial As
sociation and are going to see that
the town is kept as clean as possible.
The mayor says that an offi
cer will go all over the town during
the next few days and investigate
every back yard and place where re

look good or would in any way en
danger the health of the community.
Each man will be required to clean
up his yard, haul off or burn all the
trash and make it appear neat and

toward "this end, Pendleton will soon
be known far and wide as one of the
neatest and cleanest towns in the
Not only should the town be kept
clean and neat from a sightly stand
point, but it is necessary from a san

Walla Walla Discovers the Second
One During Last Few Weeks.
Walla Walla, April 4. Yesterday a
case of smallpox was discovered at
the Mission, a boarding house near
the center of the city, where a man
from Prescott, a small town 20 miles
from Walla Walla, had been taken
down and the disease was well devel
oped. The man's name is Stevens,
and he is the father of the young man
who recently went to the pest house
here, loung Stevens appeared at a
drug store for some medicine. There
it was discovered that he was suffer
ing from smallpox. He was allowed
to leave the city and return home,
only to be brought back to this city
and given care at the pest house. The
father contracted the disease from
the son. It is feared that others will
suffer from the disease, as it was
spread by both father and son.

John D. Murray, who was paroled
from the penitentiary a few months
ago, was returned to the prison yes
terday, having been surrendered by
his friends.- Muuray was sent up for
stealing hogs. He made a model pris
oner and was paroleu, finding employ
ment with Weed & Thomas, stockmen
of Ellensb.urg. It is stated that he
frequented saloons and. became reck
less, hence his surrender to Superin
tendent Catron. He will now serve
the balance of his time.
Water Famine Threatens the Town
of Prescott.
Prescott, Wash., April 4. "Unless
something happen, to give us more
water, there is a great likelihood of
Prescott experiencing a water famine,
especially in so far as the mill is
concerned," said H. H. Leonard, man
ager of the Prescott flouring mill yes
terday. The Touchet river is the low
est it has been known for years and
'lich is owing to the small amount
of snow that fell in the Blue Moun
tains, tributary to Its source, during
the winter. There is also a shortage
of water for the farmers and the out
look for crops is not what it Is usually
at this time of year. A great deal of
the wheat had to be resown this
spring and unless a goodly amount of
water falls from now on for the next
three months crops will certainly be
short in this part of the country.
Says the Convention Was Wise In its
Action and Selected Good Candi
dates. 1
There is no certainty about poli
tics, yet the ticket nominated Satur
day at Pendleton has tho brightest
of prospects to win, and if it falls
the political game may be looked up.
on as fruitful of nothing but Burprlsost
says the Weston Leader.
The convention did nl lthat could
be expected of it by tho most exact
ing and critical of party supporters.
It was doubtless assisted therein by
the wisdom of recognized lenders in
pointing out the most expedient
course of nctlon. but the delegates
hull not been elected at boss-ridden
nrnnarics, and were free to choose
for themselves. If they freely and
voluntarily cla .the work cut out for
the convention, and rejoiced" in r. it
merely lollows that the work is con
and creditable to the best and bright
est brains of the convention.
Tho ticket throughout is one with
which tho democratic party may trust"
fully and proudly go before the citl
zens of tho county and ask for uu
qualified approval. In no single par
ticular does it need ap'ology. Tho
convention was singularly happy and
sagacious both In its choice of men
and in its geographical selections. It
does not appear at this time that the
ticket could have been rendered
stronger at a singlo point. It is the
party's best, and should defeat bo its
portion It will be because there are
too many republicans In Umatilla
county republicans eager to follow
and honor an ambitious Moses whom
the democrats are doubtless sorry
they uplifted from tho bullrushes of
obscurity when a puny infant in polit
ical power.
The candidates are men worthy of
the highest confidence and respect r
voters. In tho legislature they will
command attention from the solons ot
Oregon; in county offices somu of
them have already proven tholr worth
and the others can be safely trusted
with the affairs of tho public. One
needs but to read the ticket to assure
himself of the excellent character of
its personnel.
It is the duty of voters to compare
tho rival candidates presented by tho
rival parties, and to cnrefully consid
er by whom their Interests will bo
best safeguarded. If tho selection la
dispassionately and Intelligently
made, there Is llttlo fear that tho
work of Saturday's convention will
not be Indorsed at the polls.

Means bad air and whether it EnBntV tO HBIth
es from the low lauds and
marshes of the country, or the filthy sewers and drain pipes of the cities
and tpwns, its effect upon the human system is the same.
These atmospheric poisons are breathed into the lungs and taken up
by the blood, and the foundation of some long, debilitating illness is laid.
Chills and fever, chronic dyspepsia, torpid and enlarged liver, kidney
troubles, jaundice and biliousness nre frequently due to that invisible foe,
Malaria. Noxious gases nnd unhealthy matter collect in the .system becnusc
the liver and kidneys fail to act, and are poured into the blood current until
it becomes so polluted and sluggish that the poisons literally break through
the skin, and carbuncles, boils, abscesses, ulcers nnd vnrious eruptions of an
indolent character appear, depleting the system, and threatening life itself.
The genus and poisons that so oppress and weaken the body nnd destroy
the life-giving properties of the blood, rendering it thin and watery, must
be overcome and carried out of the system before the patient can hope to
get rid of Malaria and its effects.
