SMAMii'ox. It scums that Yamhill
county is not the only place in which
tlmt dreaded ditoase, smallpox, has
showed itself and caused the immedi
ate community to become terrified.
It has developed over on the Smind in
scattering cases and although it is not
likely to become very widespread, it
stands every town, hamlet, and com
munity in hand to adopt at once the
most strict sanitary methods to pre
vent it. It is true that the dis
ease is not so fatal as in earlier times
before its treatment was well under
stood, and deaths from it are quite a
low per cent, yet none of us desire to
tamper with it. See that everything
about your premises is free from all
accumulations that are likely to en
gender disease of any kind, and we
will feel safer and enjoy life the better

hjft for Portland, Sunday. Jake (to
liis sorrow) is a member of qompany
"II," O. N. C!., of La Grande, and at a
recent inspection of the members of
