Just another way of giving tho Urn

Oregou has there been such an Im
provement In the past 10 years, as
n tho railroad service. Ten years
ago, the man wno could drink tne
most whisky, gamble his check away
the quickest, and swear In public
the loudest, was the real, Ideal rail
road man. No matter for wooden
legs, glass eyes, mashed hands or
weak heads, the rules were all car
ried under tho hat, and if a man wor
ried along, without meeting some
other train on the main line, or
blocking traffic, he was considered a
good man, and the more roads he
had worked on, and tho more migra
tory he proved to be, the greater his
popularity. Today, the drinker, the
gambler, the "boomer," who will not
work steadily, and the blustering.
uncivil man is banished from the
service. Gentility, ability, sobriety,
trustworthiness, steadiness and
knowledge of his business are the
marked characteristics today. The
railroad man must be sound In mind
and body, ns the public Is in his
keeping. He trust have a thorough
knovledge rf his business, for his
work causes him to think quickly
and light, at times when other lives
depend upon him. He Is a home
builder today. The longer he works
in oue place the greater the credit,
and the more readily he propares
himself for promotion, tho surer be
's of his position.

The Salem Journal, in speaking of
the tendency of corporations, to push
their attorneys forward, as repre
sentatives of the people In public of
fice, says: "There is a disposition to
push corporation attorneys In all
parts of the stato for legislative po
sitions. This Is a mistake from the
standpoint of the corporations, and
puts the party that engages In It on
tho defensive. The people should In
conventions generally sit down on
such aspirations, whether they eman
ate from the ambition of the Individ
ual or tho policy of the corporations. ,
The corjMiratlons have been treated '
fairly and liberally in Oregon, audi
there Is no occasion to send their di
rect representatives to maite laws
for the people. The Journal has al- J
Ways contended that a salaried offi
cial or attorney of a corporation had I
no right to ask to represent the peo-j
plo at the same time. If ho is an
honest man be cannot serve two
masters, and his heart is apt to be
where most of his treasure comes
from. Lot the people beware; and
not place too many of these gentle
men who represent the "mergers" In
positions of trust.

George V Hobart in San Francisco
Commercial travelers who visit all
the towns In the Inland Empire, say
that Ilolso Is the most progressive
city In this entire mountain district,
as shown by Its miles of modem
street paving and Its splendid school
buildings. Its business activity Is
not so great as that of Pendleton or
Haker City, but Its paved streets
give It a metropolitan air that no
amount -of activity would glvo It.
Dolse City claims but 12,000 people,
which probably means 0,000, and yet
it equals Spokane, Portland or Seat
tie In Its progress, while Pendleton
and Haker City, both having more
rich territory tributary and both of
which probably do more business In
dollars and cents ovory year, are
lagging behind in the class of fnm
tier villages In the matter of streets,

Germ Infected Air.
Malaria is not confined exclusively to the swamps
and marshy regions of the country, hut wherever there is
bad air this insidious foe to health is found. Poisonous
vapors nnd gases from sewers, nnd the musty air of damp
cellars are laden with the germs of this miserable disease,
which are breathed into the lungs and taken up by the
Wood nnd transmitted to every part of the body. T.ien
you begin to feel out of sorts without ever suspecting the
cause. No energy or appetite, dull headaches, sleepy nnd
tired and completely fagged out from the slightest exer
tion, are some of the deplorable effects of this enfeebling
..,!.,,!,. a c tlm ,1ip.ise nrnirressesand the blood becomes
more deeplv poisoned, boils and nbscesses nnd dark or tgjjr;
yellow spots appear upon the skin. When the poison is
loft- to formpnt nnd the microbes and germs to multiply in -.
the blood, Liver nnd Kidney troubles and other serious complications often
arise. As Malaria begins and develops in the.blood, the treatment to be

the germs and poisons nnd purifies the polluted
blood, nnd under its tonic effect the debilitated
constitution rapidly recuperates and the system is
