Ladies and Children Invited.
All ladies and children who can
not stand the shocking strain of
laxative syrups, cathartics, etc., are
invited to try the famous Little
Early Risers. They are different
from all other pills. They do not
purge the system. Even a double
dose will not. gripe, weaken or
sicken; many people call them the
Easy PiH. W. H. Howell, Hous
ton, Tex.," says nothing better can
be used for constipation, sick head
ache, etc. Bob Moore, Lafayette
Ind., says all others gripe and
sicken, while DuWitt's Little Early
Risers do their work well and easy.

The Benefit of Change.
We are like house plants: We
need a change of soil now and then
to be replanted. New scenes,
new experiences, new surroundings,
a change of climate, dry air instead
of moisture, sunshine in place of
cloud. This is sometimes essential
to health. There are conditions
near at hand that are better than
Europe can offer. Take a month
or two in California. Plant your
self for a time where there are no
irritations, where the hotel is be
yond criticism, the landscape pleas

weather invites to walks and drives.

SPRING GRAIN NEEDS RAIN
Government Crop Bulletin Says Late
Sown Wheat Is Seriously Affected.
In the eastern part of the State
the first of the week was cool and a
few small Bhowers occurred, after
which dry and moderately warm
weather prevailed. In the western
section the week has been dry;
during the first few days the nights
were cool, and in some places light
frosts occurred; during the latter
part the temperature rose decidedly,
and Sunday the warmest day of
the season occurred, with the
thermometer registering between
90 and 100 degrees.
This warm weather has injuriously
affected late sown spring wheat
and forage crops, which now badly
need rain. In all parts of the
State, except in the coast counties.
fall wheat, barley and rye are be
ginning to head; in the case of
wheat the straw is unusually short,
and the crop as a whole promises
to be considerably below the
average unless timely rains arrive
to improve the condition of that
sown in the spring.
Corn also needs rain, but the hot
weather has caused it to grow
rapidly during the week. Gardens
are doing fairly well, but com
plaints are increasing of damage to
squashes, beans and pumpkins by
insect pests. -Hops that came up
are doing nicely, but quite a number
of yard3 have been abandoned owing J
to me great numDer or missing
hills. Some alfalfa and early clover
has been cut.
the iruit prospects, except
peaches, continue very promising,
although in the Willamette valley,
a few correspondents report cherries
and some varieties of apples as
only fair. Strawberries are abun
dant and of excellent quality.
The poet's exclamation: "OLifel
I feel thee bounding in my veins,"
is a joyous one. Persons that can
rarely or never make it, in honesty
to themselves, are among the most
unfortunate. They do not live, but
exist; for to live implies more than
to be. To live is to be well and
strong to arise feeling equal to
the ordinary duties of the day, and
to retire not overcome by them to
feel life bounding in the veins. A
medicine that has made thousands
of people, men and women, well
and strong, has accomplished a
great work, bestowing the richest
blessings, and that medicine is
Hood's Sarsaparilla. The weak,
run-down, or debilitated, from any
cause, should not fail to take it. It
builds up the whole system, changes
existence into life, and makes life
more abounding. We are glad to
say these words in its favor to the
readers of our columns.

Another enjoyable excursion to
Falls City was given Sunday, a
special motor train over the new
railroad carrying a large number
of Independence and Monmouth
people to Polk county's pleasant
little mountain town. The motor
arrived in Dallas at 9:30 a. m., and
left over the track of the Dallas
and Falls City road a few minutes
later. The weather was perfect,
and the beautiful scenery along
route was greatly enjoyed by the
excursionists. The nine miles were
covered in 40 minutes, and many
expressions of surprise at the
smoothness of the new track were
heard. The visitors did not fail to
note the substantial character of
the construction of the road, and
all spoke Jn the highest terms of
the spirit of enterprise displayed
by the people, who were instrumen
tal in carrying the project through
to a successful finish.
The day at Falls City was most
enjoyable. The bracing mountain
air gave the excursionists good
appetites, and the visitors who had
taken lunch baskets spent
pleasant noon hour on the shady
banks of the Luckiamute above the
Falls. Many people partook of the
excellent dinner prepared by Land
ord Fugitt of the Falls City hotel.
This snug little tavern is rapidly
growing in favor with the Sunday
excursionists, and the meals served
there are among the most enjoyable
features of the trip.

resident Hirschberg, of the motor
company, accompanied the ex

himself busy looking after the
comfort and convenience of his
assengers. President Gerlinger,

road, was among the number re
turning to Dallas in the evening.
The Sunday excursions to Falls
City afford an excellent opportunity
to the people of Dallas, Inde
pendence and Monmouth to escape
the heat and dust of Summer and
spend a quiet, restful day after a
busy week's work, and are sure to
grow rapidly in popular favor as
the season advances.

Of Insanity Despite
Nervous Cramps in
Hands and Feet.
Dr. Miles' Nervine Was
Sleeplessness is at once a symptom and a
disease. Just as soon as the nerves become
deranged the patient suffers from sleepless
ness. Deprived of their natural rest the
nerves soon lose all force and vitality and
while sleeplessness is a symptom in sucb
cases it frequently becomes chronic and
remains the chief effect of disordered nerves.
Dr. Miles' Nervine quiets the nerves and
strengthens them; soothes the tired brain
and permits sleep; restores lost energy and
vitality and brings sleep, health and strength.
"Previous to our coming to the territory
three years ago, we lived in Virginia, and it
was there that I got acquainted with the
wonderful powers of Dr. Miles' Nervine. I
had been under the doctor's care and taking
his medicine for over two years, but the nerv
ous trouble that was gnawing my life away
grew steadily worse. 1 had nervous cramps
in my hands and legs, which would draw up
and pain me so that I could not sleep at
nizht. Often 1 never closed my eyes for
days and nights together. The doctor finally
told n e he could do nothing more for me and
that I was on the verge of insanity. He told
me I might try your Nervine as a la.t resorL
and it proved to be my salvation. When I
had used four bottles of the remedy together
with the Nerve and Liver Tills I had is-
p lined my former good health. MRS.
