One dollar for each ticket will be charged for the benefit of the association. Last "Wednesday a cyclone struck Rochester, Minn., killirg twenty-five people, injuring forty others and laid one-third of the city in ruins. Mr. Arthur Fisher says: "I caught a very bad cold which set tled into a severe case of rheuma tism. I did not know what to do for it, so I resolved to purchase St. Jacobs Oil for trial. Happy thought, I began applying the Oil, and in two weeks was as well as ever. TorontoGana(la)Globe. Taxation of Land. The Benton Ltadei- asserts that land is assessed at its full value or words to that effect. "Yc know of land assessed at one-third its cost and one-third what the owner would take for it. We know of a -block sold last spring in Portland for 12,500 that stands assessed at $1,500. We are infonne 1 that city property is rarely taxed at more than one-fourth its value, and it is notorious that farms worth $25 to $40 an acre are assessed at $5 to Slo. It really seems only fair to own that land and all real j estate is only taxed on one-third j to one-half the money value the owner places upon il. That be ing so, the man who loans money naturally objects to having to pa tax on all his money when the landholder does not pay tax on nearly all his land cost him or that he would sell it for. Another fact is this: In some counties taxes are $1.50 on $100 and in others $3.50 on the same sum. The stranger who comes to Portland and is told that taxes are $3 on the hundred is astonished. He need not be if he learns in reality taxes are not much, if any, over $1 on the hundred in Multnomah county, because property there is not assessed to average at more that one-third ita value. It would look better and be more reasona ble and honest if property through the state was assessed at its full cash value, as the law directs. If that were the case taxes would be lower to correspond, and the same property would pay the same tax as it does now. Willamette, Far mer. Discussing the scheme of build ing a railroad from Astoria via Clatsop plains and Tillamook bay to the Willamette valley, the On ffonian says: "That this region is but sparseby settled now is no objection at all to the scheme, for there will be no trouble in filling up a country so well favored. Three years ago scarce twenty families lived within the range of the Pend d'Oreille division of the Northern Pacific railroad, and last year the local passenger business alone of the division paid its whole operating expense. To cut across the mountains from Tilla mook bay, however, would be to leave half the loaf untouched. The Nestucca, Salmon and Siletz rivers, further south, are rich in varied resources, and could soon supply an important traffic. To extend the road south to connec tion with the Oregon Pacific at Yaquina bay would by no means be a bad scheme, independent of the facilities which such connec tion might afford for shipping wheat from the center of the val ley direct to deep water at As toria. The timber resources of this region, alone, would furnish a railroad with business for several years.' PQ1MR Absolutely Pure. This iowder never varies. A man-el o purity, strength ami wliDlesomeness.
