POINT OF ASSAULT.
What will be the issues in the
next presidential campaign? This
question is now receiving consid
The democratic party leaders
evidently plan a furious attack
on republican administration of
public affairs and an assault on
protection under the guise of
tariff revision. They will assert
t! at republican administration is
in the interests of plutocracy,
g eedy corporations, mighty
trusts; that it is corrupt and im
moral in state and nation, and
everywhere inimical to the inter
ests of the people.
They are shut up to this line of
attack, for they claim, indeed,
that now there is no difference
in the principles of the two
p irties. The president, they as
S3rt, advocates no principle which
is not now and ever has been held
by the democratic party. He is
really and truly a democrat, and
that is why they stand with him
In a measure this is an un
truthful statement of what is
true. The democracy, except
for its opposition to protection,
has no principles distinctively its
own. It is compelled to adopt
the principles of the republican
p irty. It artfully conceals this
b y averring that these are now,
and always have been, demo
So firmly do the masses of the
American people believe in, and
so .tenaciously do they cling to
the principles of the republican
party that an open and avowed
attack upon these would be al
t aether I utile. The assault must
hi upon republican administra
tion. The leaders of the demo
cracy must appeal and do appeal
to prejudice, ignorance, class dis
tinction. They would array the
poor against the rich, the unfort
unate against the more fortunate,
the husbandman against the
manufacturer, and these against
the mei chant. Having done this
they would persuade men that
all these conditions were because
of republican mal-administration
This is not so difficult as it may
seem. Men are never so restless
and vaguely dissatisfied as when
they have, and for long have
had no real cause for unrest and
Our people were never so pros
perous, never had so little cause
for complaint as now. Never in
our history has the government
been so earnestly administered
in the interests of all the people
as at present. Broadly, the great
principle has been asserted of
government control of all the
things which menace the health,
happiness and rights of the peo
ple, and against which they are
helpless without such control.
Republican principles, republi
can administration of the govern
ment by the hands of a republi
can president and a republican
congress have done, and are do
ing, all that has ever been at
tempted and accomplished on
these lines. It has been done in
cho face of democratic negation
and obstruction, yet the democ
racy hope to win in the next
campaign mainly by assault on

Writes on Roads.
Ed. Gazette: I wish to say a
few words in behalf of our wagon
road between Alsea store and
Philomath. We wish to make this
a business proposition to every
business man in Benton county
as well as those who are directly
interested in traveling the road.
We have made some attempt to
build a permanent road and it is
very good so tar as it goes, but we
think it can be bettered ; that is,
bettered tor the mass of the people.
The road we are now building
with our five mill tax only bene
fits a few who live along the road
in tbe way of beautifying their
homes and as a luxury, but does
not increase the value ot their
property or the products they
We can make this valley the
Garden of Eden and so long as
we are cut off from the outside
world we will be no better off
financially. What we are most in
need of is a road ftom Alsea store
out over the mountain so that we
can expert what we have to sell
and import what we have to buy
without ;- transporta ion , costing
three times as much as it ought
to; or in other words, more than
the product is worth. Uader the
present conditions we cannot ric-
duce the products that are natural
to our soil, such as potatoes and
apples, as it costs more to haul
them over the mountain than they
are worth in the market.
Our vaHey soil is adapted to
fruit and vegetables, the old grain
fields are in sore need of such cul
tivation, and when the time
comes that we can market a pro
duct that ricis our farmrs of foul
seebs and summer-fallows the
ground at the same time, our
farmswill double in volue. Surely
this is a busiucss point to Bentoo
county as well as to the property
owners, for when oui lauds in
crease in value our taxes will in
crease and will thus benefit every
tax paer in Benton county.
And now, my good friends and
neighbors ot Alsea, it is up to us
to get to the front and assist our
County Judge and Commissioners
to build us a road that wiil do us
some feOod; a road that wili give
us cheap transportation, double
the price ?,f oar firms a;id in
ciease the price of our pioducts;
a road over which a covered mail
hack may drive everv day in the
vear; a road which will save horse
flesh, vehicles and harness, and
the endangering cf the lives ot
I will not attempt lo suggest
any definite plan for the road,
but I do believe the project is
within tasy reach of the people
eoncerued, and that the work can
be accomplished iu a short space
of time and lor less money than
mos-t people think.
If all the people of the Alsea
country will meet together and
plan out a good and reasonable
road, something substantial, dur
able and wilhin reach of the peo
ple, I believe we can get a liberal
aid fiom the county.

The following article which
appeared in the Scientific Amer
ican,: on experiments in the pre
servation of meats - will be of in
terest'to many just at the present
time: '. : - . v '.v
In a report by the Italian
Minister ot Agriculture on the
subject of refrigerating in Italy,
Mancini gives some interesting
results, obtained . by the Craveri
process,, of preserving . meats, a
process which was. much diVcus
sed some months ago, but of
which a more definite idea can
now be formed, . since a series of
experiments has been conducted
under the direction of university
professors. , .
The Craveri method wou'd
seem-to have solved the problem
hitherto unsolved of preserving
meat in a form fit to be eaten, by
means of chemical treatment.
Excluding for hygienic reasons
ordinary antiseptics, and recog
nizing as insufficient for practical
purposes the usual method of
salting, Craveri resorts to in
fections into the veins of slaugh
tered animals, from which the
blood has been drained, of a solu
tion of ioo pirts water, 25 of
kitchen salt, and 4 of acetic acid;
in other words, of a solution of a
mixture of cubstances such as
are found normally in our bod
ies, and which form part of our
nurishment. The solution is
subjected to the amount of one-,
tenth of the weight of the living
Prof. Brusaferro, of Turin,
experimented upon two animals,
a sheep and and a calf; tbe two
carcasses were hung into a sub
terranean room for 75 days, at a
temperature of 16 deg. C. (about
61 deg. F.) After this time they
were skinned, dressed and cut
up. The' heart, braias, liver,
and intestines seemed somewhat
macerated, but were normal in
appearance. The fat between
the skin was perfectly preserved,
the flesh appearing bright red in
color, moist, and giving out an
agreeable, slightly acid odor. In
no part was there any trace of
putrefaction, even incipient.
This meat boiled produced an
excellent broth, resembling in
every particular that obtained
from fresh meat. Roasted, it was
tender, and even tasted bettei
than ordinary meat, was diges
tible and nutritious. As a r sul
of these and other exp rim. nts,
Prof. Brusaferro declares it as his
opinion that the Cravvri n etl od
promises great advantages over
others. The other pioitoi en
gaged in the experiments came
to exactly the same conclusions.
Submitted to a bacteriological ex
amination, the meat proved to be
lree from bacteria; in the h-ng
period of preservation given,
tbe beginning of dissolution was
noticed in tbe visceral
and muscular tissues, but with
out the production of any toxic

NO MAN IS STRONGER THAN
lyOt tno greatest athlete have dysponsia
and his muscles would soon fail. Physi
cal strength is derived from food, if a
man has insufficient food ho loses strength.
If he has no food he dies. Food is con
verted into nutrition through the stom
ach and bowels. It depends on the
strength of the stomach to what extent
food eaten is digested and assimilated.
People can die of starvation who have
abundant food to eat, when the stomach
and its associate organs of digestion rnd
nutrition do not perform ilieir duty,
-thus the stomach is real lv the vital or
gan of the body. If the stomach is " weak"
the body will be weak also, because it is
upon tho stomach the body relies for its
strength. A nd as the body, considered as
a whole. Is made up of its several mem
bers and organs, so the weakness cf the
body as a consequence of "weak" stom
ach will be distributed among the or
gans which compose tho bodv. If tho
body is weak because it is iil-ncuriskcd
thru physical weakness wiil bo found in
all the organs heart, liver, kidneys, etc.
The liver will be torpid and inactive,
giving rise to biliousness, loss of appetite,
weak nerves, feeble cr irregular action ci
hert, palpitation, dizziness, headache,
backache and kindred disturbances and
Jlr. Louis Pare, of Quebec, writes: "For
years after my health begca to fail, my head
trrew dizzy, eyes pained me. and my stomach
was sore all the time, while everything' I
would eat would seem to lie heavy like lead
on my stomach. The doctors claimed that

their powders regularly yet 1 felt no better.
r.Iy wife advised me to try Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and stop taking the doc
tor's medicine. She bought me a bottle and
we soon found that 1 began to improve, so I
kept up the treatment. I took on flesh, my
stomach became normal, the digestive organs
forked perfectly and 1 soon began to look
like a different person. I can never cease to
be grateful for what yonr medicine has done
forme and I certainly give it highest praise."

We know from our
dealings with over
2,700 dalrrmen In the
Pacific Northwest and
from our own
practical er- f-''
tierience In jfmwmm
the U. S.
most practical separator for erery-day farm
use. It Is such a well-made piece of machinery
that It will last a lifetime, giving every dey ,.
the quickest, easlrst service, it is ine Desi
value for the money and we guarantee It our
selves. In addition to the cuarantce of the
factory. To Bhow our confidence In thla
separator we will shin you one on ten days'
free trial. Then If It don't prove as represented
the best and most practical for your own use,
you may return It at our expense.
Hazelwood today stands with Its guarantee
behind thousands of U. 8. Separators, and there
has never been a day when- we have regretted
having guaranteed this fine separator. We
are thoroughly and practically familiar with .
the advantages and disadvantages of every
separator on the market and we are handling
the U. S. Separator because we know it to
be the beat there Is. .
SKIMS CLEANEST In addition, tbe U. S.
Separator skims the milk cleaner than doea
any other machine. This has been demon
strated over and over again. The world's record
for clean skimming haa been held by the U.
S. Hand Separator for many years. No other
band separator hat been able to equal the
record made fire years ago at the Pan-American
Exposition, and yet this record was lowered
by the U. 8. Separator in the official test at
the Lewis and Clark fair last year. ,
It will outwear any other separator. It la
more easy and simple to operate, it is easier,
to keep clean and It will keep right oa year
after year doing Its daily work, giving perfect
PAIS FOB ITSELF The U. S. Separator
Will pay for Itself in one year In extra cream
saved over what could be skimmed in tie old.;
