MR. CROSTHWAITE'S EXPERIENCE AND
' HOW HE WAS CURED.
Ir. Dartlu, Hotel Revere, Albany,
Dvr Sir: Iu anawer to your coiuinu
nWatioti aaklng me to make a t le
nient of my case, I most willingly do
ao, if by doing anyone attlicted aa I
wis mllit hae their attention called
to the auceeaa with which you treated
mo. Aa you!kuow,l consulted you
regarding a very aeriooa case of facial
paralyttia, the eutirat fide of the face
being completely paralyzed. I could
not abut the eye, having uo control
over the lid; the lower lid was drooped
down, and the lower aide of the face
badly drooped, the corner of the
mouth badly druwu il'iwu. Anyone
can Imagine the condition of a per
sou's mind uuder auch cireuuistauees.
I had almoft given up all hopes of
ever beiug myself agaiu until I con
sulted you aud you assured me that
you could cure me. I commenced
treatmeutat once, and commenced to
improve trout the start, and lu three
mouths' treatment fouud myself en
tirely cured. I make this statement
willingly that auyone suffering as I
have may avail themselves of your

Deafness Cured 111 Ten Minutes.
To the Editor: For about 15 years
I bad been atliicted with a discharging
ear and deafness. I was induced to
try Dr. Darriu from the faot that he
cured my uuale, Wm. Parrel, of Mid
dleton, of deafness ten yeara ago. The
doctor cured my deatuess March 9,
1899, in less than ten minutes with
electricity and a slight operation. I
will gladly answer any questions at
Middletou, Oregon, where I have re
sided for years.

CLIMATE OF POLK COUNTY.
The climate of Polk county id
not monotonous in its similitude.
It has not the extremes of the east
ern climate. It seldom goes high
er than 85 degrees in the summer,
or below 30 degrees in the winter,
We have but little freezing weather
and less snow. There is an ample
amount of rainfall to keep an ex
cellent growth of vegetation the
year around and irrigation is not
necessary. We have neither bliz
zards or cyclones, droughts or
THE STOCK INDUSTRY.
Polk county is continually im
proving this line of industry. In
every section of the county better
grades of stock are being intro
duced. At the present time we
have imported amongst our stock
the Angora goals, the Cotswold
and Marino sheep, Poland China
and Berkshire swine, Holes tein
and Hereford cattle, the Blue Ande-
Coach in chickens.
Owing to the open season there
must be but little feed kept to win
ter the stock in Polk county. In
the raising of the goats and sheep
the growth of the wool and mohair
is better, longer, more even mi
heavier than in the colder climatrs.
Many of our sheep shear ns high as
23 pounds and the (Iocks ot some o
our largest dealers average
pounds throughout. The product
sells in the market at highest price
obtainable owing to grade of wool
grown, wool wut average in price
from 1G to 18 centi per pound.
The improvinn of the grade of
sheep line' goals does not only im
prove the grade of wool and mo
hair, but it improves the price of
the stock in the market, and we
are commencing to be exporters of
stock where we were formerly im
Goats do well in Oregon. The
same conditions are necessary to
raise goats as sheep, Goats .shear
from o to G pounds on average, and
J. B. Stump, of Monmouth, shears
from one of his high bred goats Sj
pounds. The Angora fleece often
averages IS inches in length and
we have seen a fleece as long as 22
nches. The crop this year sold
through the Mohair Growers' As
sociation at 38 J cents per pound.
For the sheep and goat industry
all that is necessary is plenty of
underbrush, good grasses, water
and range. They are placed on
the hilly lends and live on th
shrubs. It is not necessary
plant tmirn of the domesticated
grasses to keep them. But som
hay should be stored for the danger
of an extia cold winter. Large
sheds are being placed in the fields
for them and it is proving that the
strck does a great deal better with
Swine proves profitable. The
feed formerly was wheat, but im
proved methods are in vogu a
present, and speltz, vetch and rape
are raised extensively and a much
better grade can be produced with
the same outlay of money than
could be produced otherwise. We
will take the following estimate
which was given us by Sperling
Bros., the meal men of Indepen
dence: They say that 1G0 acres of
land, placed in pasture, grain, etc.
will take care of 400 hogs, and that
these hogs will weigh an easy
average ot zW pounds and are
worth an easy average of 6 cents
per pound, or from the 160 acres
can be secured $4800 from the hogs
if a party wished to go into this in
Chickens can be raised at a very
little expense and they bring in
good profits and a steady income.
Parties in Polk county are going
into this line of industry extensive
