were among the campers m the
valley last week. "Besides Deputy
Wells, there was another; game
warden named Chamberlain,
from Eugene, in the same : Vicin
ity. For same reason the officers
suspected that - King - and 4 ..the
Wanns were dining on venison
in defiance of the law, and th e
game wardens watched for ran
opportunity and swooped down
upon the camp one evening, find
ing, as they suspected," a fine,:
dressed deer hung up near the
An arrest of Mr. King followed

ised to appear in Waldport next

On the following day Mr. Wells
and Mr. Chamberlain were in

boys were confronted with the
situation and plead guilty to
the charge ot killing the deer,
paid the fine of $25 and $1.50
Justice fees and the case was set
At this juncture, however, Mr.
King arrived and when informed
as to the plea of "guiltv" that
had been entered, was highly in
dignant and proposed to stand
trial in spite of all. When in
formed by the game wardens,
however, that he would then be
arrested for having had
the deer in his possession, and
that another fine of $25 would
have to be paid by him, he decid
ed to let the matter drop. Thus,
the crowd got off for $26.50, and,
the chance are that the lesson
to them will, be well worth the
price. One of the Wann boys at-

About Poor Farm.
-Following is an interesting item of
business transacted by the county court
at its last session: :: . . . j
, Now at this time came on regularly to
be heard and considered the matter of a
tract of land purchased -by Benton Coun
ty on May 21, 1906, described as Claim
No. 45, T. 12 8., .Ri: 5:W;t ia Benton
County, Oregon, containing 160 acres
and for a consideration of $5,400, as
shown by the records on page 215, book
No. 45, Record of Deeds for Benton
Count), Oregon, and said to have been
purchased by the County as a place on
which ta keep our county poor. On July
11, 1906, the present county court . went
out to said farm and made personal ex
amination of the land aud its buildings,
and among other things, to consider its
adaptability to the purpose for(' which it
was intended when purchased. ;
, Now, having fully considered this mat
ter, this court does not consider it advis
able or for tiie best interests of Benton
County to expend of the county tundsan
additional amount necessary ; to erect
suitable buildings and make such other
improvements as would be necessary to
prepare the place for a Comfortable home
for our county charges. The court fur
ther considers that a small tract of good
land suitable for . pardening as better
adapted to this purpose. Therefore, it is
ordered that the County Judge be, and
he is hereby authorized to receive offers
to purchase or to rent Said farm and to
report the same to this court at its next
regular term. : : V

Every Iwttle of Dr. Pierce's world

"ratory at BulTaio, N. Y., has printed
upon its wrapper "nil the Ingredients
entering Into its composition.. This fact

Is why $0 many unprejudiced physicians
, prescribe them ana recommend them to
their patient. They know what they
are composed of, and that the ingredients
are those endorsed by the moat eminent
medical authorities.
The further fact that noither Dr.

heart regulator and blood purifier, nor hia
"Favorite Prescription 'for weak, over
worked, broken-down, norvous women,
contains any alcohol, also entitles them
to a place all by themselves.
Many years ago, Dr.' Pierco discovered
that chemically pure glycerine, of proper
strength, is a better solvent and preserv
ative of the medicinal principles resid
ing in our indigenous, or native, medi
cinal plants than is alcohol; and, further
more, that it possesses valuable medicinal
properties cf its own, being demulcent,
nutritive, antiseptic, and a .most efficient
ant; ferment. ? , .-' - -
Keither of the above medicines con
tains alcohol, or any harmful, habit
forming drug, as "will be seen from a
glance at the formula printed on each
bottle wrapper. They are safe to uso and
potent to cure.
Not only do physicians prescribe "10
above, non-secret medicines largely, but
tho most intelligent people omploy then
-peoplfl who would not think 01 using
' the ordinary patent, or secret medicines.
Every ingredient entering into the com
position of Dr. Pierce's medicines, has
the strongest kind of an endorsement
from leading medical writers of the
several schools of practice. ; No other
medicines put for like purposes has
any such, professional, endorsement. ;
