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 ing, and where warm sunny weather invites to walks and drives. Pure and drv air, and the increased electric influences of sunshine are vastly helpful. You can make this trip at very little expense, and enjoy a ride over the scenic Siskiyou and Shasta mountains, which, at this time of the year with their snow-covered peaks, are unsurpassed for their grandeur. For complete information regard ing rates, points of interest, and delightful hotels in California, address W. E. COMAN, G. P. Agt., S. P. Co., Portland, Oregon.

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 JO SON 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. Life. 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. The Best Prescription for Malaria Chills and Fever is a, bottle of Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. It is simply iron ana quinine in m tasteless form. Ho cure, No pay. Price BOo, 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. The return trip to Dallas in the evening, was mad" in 35 minutes. resident Hirschberg, of the motor company, accompanied the ex cursiomsts, and, as usual, kept himself busy looking after the comfort and convenience of his assengers. President Gerlinger, f the Dallas and" Falls City rail 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.

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. Martha J. Sheffkjl Omer, Oklahoma.
