Elder Hiram Smith of Ashland,
Oregon, who conducted meetings
lust week at the Church of the
Brethren, was a guest of Elder John
Bonewiti during his stay. It per

connection is surmised between his
visit and the diappcaranec of an en

did disappear, however, and Mr. Ron

property. Had it not been stolen,
more ham would have been available
for Elder Smith's plate.

Decayed or infected teeth, while
not giving any perceptible annoy
ance to their owner,, may be the
cause of many and varied disorders
of the human system.
One or more foci, or areas of in
fection an abscess, commonly
known as an ulcer may exist at
the end of a tooth root, and although
not being manifested for several
years may be the direct cause of
any of the following ailments: Ar
thritis, which is gout or any joint
inflammation; neuralgia; many stom
ach disorders; insomnia, or wakeful
ness; kcadaches; nephritis, which is
inflammation of the kidneys; myo
carditis, or inflammation of the mus
cles of the heart; nervousness.
These areas of infection, including
pyorrhea pockets around the teeth
and gums, have only one outlet if
left untreated which is, of course,
through the' body. This naturally
renders the system weaker when it
Li called upon to combat any pre
vailing epidemic, such as typhoid fe
tfer, smallpox, Spanish influenza or
whatever the disease may be.
One can readily realize the import
ance of the early treatment and cure
of these harmful agents, constantly
tearing down and weakening the hu
Memorial Hall Election
At the annual meeting Monday of
Weston Memorial Association J. II.
Price was elected president, Hey
Winn vice president, Mrs. H. Good
win secretary, C. L. Pinkerton treas
urer. G. W. Staggs, F. C. Fitzpat
rick and S., J. Culley were chosen
directors. These, together with the
officers, constitute a board of seven
in whom the Memorial hall manage
ment is vested.
Upon motion of S. A. Barnes the
retiring president, Dr. V. D. Watts,
was paid the compliment of a unan
imous rising vole for re-election, as
a tribute to his earnest and untiring
efforts the past year in behalf of the
community hall enterprise. The
brunt of the motion picture manage
ment has been borne by the doctor,
who in this as in other respects has
shown a whole-hearted devotion. He
explained that he could not continue
with the duties of president, as ho is
about to move to a neighboring
town, but would ever take an interest
in the hall's welfare. ,
A good representation of the mem
bership attended in response to offi
cial call. Voting was done in the old
town meeting style, without nomi
nations. An hour or more of ballot
ing was required to elect the seventh
It is reported that the president
elect is unwilling to qualify, and
that another meeting may be held

WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE
We are confident this selling event has never been equalled in Umatilla
county. This is not an ordinary sale. We were told by a great many
that the sale could not be a success at this time, and that the best we
could wish for would be a couple of days selling. We are now on the
eighth day of the sale, and the receipts are heavier than was anticipat
ed on the opening day.

There is a reason for the remarkable success of this sale. It is no se
cret; here it is: honest merchandise, live and let live prices. Mmd you,
we have not advertised to give away nor are we giving away merchan
dise, but we are quoting
d lieacH of mpemion
There is a reason why we can quote these ridiculously low prices
and yet break even on our merchandise. The main reason for
this is that the buyer of this concern has used rare judgment in
selecting the goods carried throughout the store. A great part of
the stock was bought previous to the recent advancing prices.
Those who buy at this sale are benefited by this.
Sale will continue until the desired amount of cash is raised. The ex
tra specials that we are giving away each day are, to say the least,
most profitable. We urge you to remain every remaining day of the
sale, and buy all you can.
