W. K. STUB3LEFIELD BLAZED
THE WAY OF SETTLERS IN
Almost the entire lire of William
K. Stubblefield was spent on the
frontier. Born in Tennessee when
that now old state was "West," he
moved successively to Illinois, Mis
souri, Texas. Arkansas and came to
Oregon In 1884. He built the first
log cabin in the Palo Pinto river
country of Texas 65 years ago, and
built a stockade of posts 21 feet
high around the cabin as protection
against the Indians. For four years
their nearest neighbor was 45 miles
When the Civil war broke out he
tried to get north to lln the Union
army but was stopped at Red river,
and turned back. He went to Cook
county, where the Union sentiment
was overwhelmingly strong and na
rowly escaped the massacre of
Onion men in Cook by the seces
sionists ol the surrounding coun
ties. After that he and his family
lived nine years on the Texas west
ern frontier, then moved to Eureka
Springs, Ark., end engaged in the
. When he came to this county he
settled on the lower Imnaha where
he made a ranch, planted an or
chard and sold hay to stockmen. In
1899 he Bold out and came to Enter
prise, which' was his home until his
death. For a number of years he
held .the contracts for the mail sta
routes from this city to Chico
and also the one to Zumwalt
and until a year ago drove the Chico
route himself. He was' the oldest
man In the United States driving a
stage regularly, yet in an official let

' 'Rheumatism. "
More than nine out of every ten
cases of rheumatism are simply rheu
matism of the muscles, due to cold
or damp, or chronic rheumatism. In
such cases no internal treatment is
required. The free application of
Chamberlain's Liniment is all that
is needed, and It Is certain to give
quick relief. Give it a trial and see
for yourself hqw qulclrly it relieves
the pain and .soreness. The medi
cines usually glen for rheumatism
are poisonous or very strong, medi
cines. They are worse than useless
in cases of chronic and muscular
rheumatism. For sale by Burnaugh
