II will be well (or nur readers to look
over the primary election 1 iw, published
on the first page of this issue. It ap
pears that all voting must be conducted
under the new plan set forth in the Aus
tralian ballot system.
A bill appropriating $300,000 for the
atate representation at the exposition is
now pending in the Iowa legislature. A
preliminary appropriation of 850,000 was
made at the last session. A bill for
$300,000 is also pending in the New York
Patrick Eoan, the American minister
to Chili, though he has been both praised
and censured by the press of our oounty,
stands well up in the ranks of diplomats.
Our country can give him oredit for as

tions between the United States and
Of the $5,000,000 bondi, whioh the city
of Chicago voted in aid of the exposition,
$3,000,000 have been sold in New York
at par and accrued interest, and the ex
position treasury has been replenished
accordingly. The terms of sale are re
garded very satisfactory. Thoy are
equivalent to a premium of one-third of
one per cent, on the first million, two
thirds on the second, and one per cent,
on the third million.
Tile East Oregonian hits the mark
when it advocates the opening of the
Columbia river with stute money. We
oannot hope for much through the gen
eral government, for there is no common
idea as to what is the best plan to pur
sue. Some of our representatives want
one thing and some another, so nothing
will be done. Let the state put in a
portage at the dalles of the Columbia.
We can well afford it. See that your
next representative is for an open riyer.
Daring the past eighteen months the
circulation of the Gazette hus inoreased
fifty per cent, whioh is Some reward for
endeavoring to put out a striotly first
class paper. However, the mamigoment
have kept paoe with the demands made
for news, and at a great expense, have
presentod the readers, weekly, with
eight pages of live reading matter.
With a proper appreciation of what
has been done for the Gazette in the
past, the present management are con
sidering the propriety of changing the
edition to a semi-weekly. Of course this
will depend largoly on the encourage
ment whioh the matter will meet at the
hands of our patrons, both in and out of
Heppner is quitea small place to sup
port suoh a paper as even our weekly,
and we will say frankly that it has tak
en any amount of rustling to keep it up
to the present standurd. It has been
neoessary to add improvements to the
plant from time to time, nud of course
the proprietors had to livo. Thore has
been hardly a time when the Gazette
supported less lhau four families, hired
help iucluded of oourse, and every dol
lur of this money has gone hack into the
avenues of Heppuor'B trade. 8o that
but few advertising patronc havo reason
to complain from this quarter. It has
boen the policy of the Gazette to help
those who are willing "to livo Bud let
live," and it shall continue in that lino.
There are but few in Heppner who fail
to appreciate a good newspaper, because
it is such a potent factor in its upbuild
ing. But there are many business men
in Heppner, good, honest citizens, who
are willing that the paper shall do all
the work, though they receive a propor
tionate Bhare of the bcnelits. Mouths
aud mouths olapBe without the cobwebs
of decay being jarred loose by judicious
advertising. Their names never appear
in the list of pushing business men.
Some say, "advertising don't pay." Well,
what would this world be if all biiHiuess
men followed up that line? There
would be but very few newspapers aud
very little of anything else. But thore
are few mon that don't believe in adver
tising, though some talk that way. It is
notioeable that their frouts have signs;
their special lines bear their names; and
the country fenoes around abound with
"Qo to Joues for this or that." Yes, we
all belive in advertising, but the news
paper which is scauued by thousands
whero u sign is read a half dozen times,
don't meet with any particular encour
agement. The fact of tho matter is that the Ga
zette rij;ht now is far ahead of Heppner
as a uewspnper, and it. is a pleasure to
keep it in the lead so long as it is not a
dead expense to its owners. Now to add
this semi-weekly feature, there must be
some solid business iu sight. It is im
possible to accomplish anything unless
a greuter number of our business men
show a disposition to help and be helped,
whioh we think will prove the ease wheu
tho benetits of a semi-weekly edition iu
our midst is considered.
We will call on you at an early date to
have a personal conference over the

How Mr. A. E. Miller, tlie Photographer of
Alblna, Escaped a Fearful Death.
From the Oregoniau.
Editob Orb qon I an: Inasmuch as
there are undoubtedly many poor human
beings suffering the agonies as I did, I
deem it my duty to let tl.em know
through your columns where they can
find relief. For seven years I suffered
death with urethral strictures, until I
could urinate only with the aid of hot
appliances, baths and morphine, when
finally they closed and I was taken to
Dr. Darrin. Ho recognized immediately
the imminent danger I was in, and with
his wonderful eleotncal aud surgical
skill relieved me in a few moments, aud
dow I am perfectly well. To my sur
prise the operation was rendered entirely
painless, and did not "lay me up." It is
justice to Dr. Darrin to Bay that my case
baffled the skill of nearly all the doctors
in the oountry for years. The publica
tion of such difficulties are against Dr.
Damn's rules, but I am so grateful for
what he has done for me that I insist on
making my case known for the benefit of
the public. I can bo found at 277 Knott
street, Albiua, Or. A. E. Milleb.

At Last Takes Action.
A bill has been introduced at Wash
ington requiring all baking powders con
taining alum and ammonia to be so la
beled. This is a step in the right direc
tion, and has been long foreshadowed by
the aotion of atate legislatures, boards of
iheaith, food comniissioneVe, etc., in this
matter. The bill affords 'ueedeVl proteo
tion to the publio, for the evidence as to
the injurious effects of alum and ammo
nia is very heavy; hut it will neverthe
less be fought bitterly by the manufac
turers whom it effects who are accustom
to sell their goods as "pure oreum of tar
tar," "absolutely pure," etc.
The bill is something needed. If a
maker uses a drug in his powder, the
mime of whioh ho does not want to have
printed on his label, it is prima facie ev
ideuco that there is something wrong
We hope the subject will be vigorously
prosecuted all over tho oountry, not only
as regards baking powder, but also all
other food adulterations,
This bill may incidentally benefit the
makers of pure articles, but if it
should, this is only an additional point
iu its favor.

TAYLOR'S ONE SPOON,

Dr. Price gives larger and fuller cans than those
of any other Baking Powder manufacturer.
Above cut represents the comparative size of one pound can each
''Dr. Price's," Royal" and "Taylor's One Spoon." These cans were
set side by side, then photographed down in exact proportions to
admit the plate in this space. Ask your grocer to set a one pound
can of any other brand alongside 1 lb. Dr. Price's Cream Baking
Powder, and observe the difference, as illustrated above.
Adulterated powders may usually be detected by their heavier
bulk, as shown by the 6mall cans, and these scantily filled, often
containing a circular to help fill out the cans. It is a singular fact
that many of the ammonia and alum baking powders are advertised
as "Absolutely Pure," All official examinations prove that it would
be safe to reject all powders labeled absolutely pure.
The economy in using Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder does
not consist alone in the fact that much larger and fuller cans are
given, but Dr. Price's is' a stronger, purer and more wholesome bak
ing powder than any other known. Does better work, and goes
farther, hence more economical in every way.
What woman would use an ammonia or alum baking powder if
she knew it ? Such powders not only undermine the health, but
ammonia gives to the complexion a sallow and blotched appearance.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is reported by all
authorities as free from ammonia, alum, lime, or any othei
adulterant. Tlie purity of this ideal powder has never been
