The petitions Tor a change of the'

class of reople In the community.

public officer Is unsatisfactory, under
the elective system, he cannot lie re-1

his actions warranted severe mens-.

the council is the medium between
the official and the people and any
complaint from the citizens, of dis
obedience of ordinances or careless-1

It Is the current opinion that a

change is made. Many men have re

There Is no partlsanlsm in the
movement, apparent on the surface. .
at least, as men ot all political par-,
ties are fighting on all sides of the i
question. The aim of every fair-,

just as good as possible, no matter I
where the burden falls. i
La Grande is trying to change her
charter to make these officers ap-1

Many business men of Pendleton'
are non-committal on the subject. I

U T Harris.' Eugeno Guard.
When our appetite lags,
when we want to be unnatur
ally quiet, when the body
responds slowly and rather
painfully to the demands upon
it, we say we are " run down."
We're all of that and more.
Our reserve force is at a low
ebb; we're at the dividing
line between health and the
first ailment that happens
along. The system is just in
a condition then to take on
sickness. It's altogether too
common a condition, but it
need never last long ; it can
often be avoided altogether.
Is it a simple matter? Very.
Within the means of every
body? Yes. Easily under
stood? By everyone of ordin
ary intelligence. What should
be done? What common
sense advises for the most
part Rest? Yes; more than
under ordinary conditions
much more, all that is possible
without giving in to the attack.
Air? Plenty; get out into
the sunshine; walk; think of
something cheerful; keep out
of the night air; avoid damp
ness. And as to food ? Your
good sense ought to direct
you. Whatever will be likely
to give real strength. Much
depends on proper nourish
ment, some authorities say all.
And whatever your diet,
combine with it Scott's Emul
sion ; nothing will cause the
tired body to respond more
quickly. There is in Scott's
Emulsion a peculiar element
of nourishment that acts di
rectly on exhausted forces,
repairs waste and restores
worn-out energy. Scott's
Emulsion works quickly and
without effort, yet one very
soon feels the effects of the
new force it brings. There is
nothing better for the "run
down " system.
These claims are not made off-hand. We
know from nearly thirty years contact with
inch cases that Scott's Emulsion will do
just what we say it will do. We will be
glad to send you a sample free so that you
can judge for yourself.
