An Independence man has) to give the voters a new deal if
ahlnned lt eoata to British
Columbia, at 150 apiece, show
iug that the homely and hum
tie goat is not to be despised.
Homely and humble goat! It's
the prettiest animal that nips
the flowery food from Polk
County's verdant hillsides. He
that can see no beauty in the
Oregon ' goat must himself be
bald headed aud accustomed to
looking at snakes and elephants
and such creatures as Nature
failed to favor with a covering
of fine mohair. A full fleeced
Angora goat is a bunch oflov-
liness to command the admira
tion of the most fastidious. It
is the child-like face and velvety
softness of the Angora kid, that
will cause a woman to drop her
poodle dog to embrace a crea
ture more loveable and more
lovely than her pampered can
ine. It is the mohair in the
beautiful rug, that tickles the
trilbies of the Journal's sidelight
editor as he springs out of bed
barefooted, in the morniug. It
is froth the mohair from th
goat's back, dress eoods of a
costly grade are made; from
mohair rich lap robes are manu
factured and it is the goat that
furnishes the fleece from which
is made the plush upon which
the traveling public ride in lux
uriant ease in Pullman Palace
cars. Indeed the goat is not to
be despised nor is he to be call
ed homely and humble. The
subjects of King Edward who
purchased Polk county goats at
$50 a head may congratulate
themselves on securing a bar
' gain. It is true goats sometimes
sell for less in this county and
it is also true there are goats in
Polk that cannot be bought for
$500. There are imported An
gora goats in this county, the
freight and other charges on
which from South Africa, were
$300. There is probably no
place on. earth where mohair
grows more rapidly than in Polk
county. The Riddell boys ex
hibited a goat, Sultan, at the
St Louis Fair that was ruled out
on the grounds that it's fleece
had grown at a greater rate than
an inch a month. Mr. Grant
raised a goat on which the fleece
grew 22 inches in 18 months.

It is an old saying that one
must go away from home to get
thn news. Last week's issue of
the Independence Enterprise
"All of the Dallas city officials
threaten to resign before election
time rolls round next Spring.
What's, the matter?" Polk
Not many papers are candid
enough to admit they must go
away from home to get the news.
In the Observer's case it is
another instance in evidence of
how a newspaper man may, by
accepting local office so tie him
self up as to be handicapped in
the race for news. Tne editor
of the Observer is mayor of
Dallas. In such a position one
naturally becomes defendant
against the many criticisms that
come up against the manage
ment of municipal affairs. Some
of the county seat's citizens find
fault with some actions of the
Dallas city council particularly
in tho matter of a contract with
Notice of Final Settlement.

Poison In Chamberlain's
From Napier New Zealand,
leraW: Two years ago the Phar
macy Board of New South " Wales,
Australia, had an analysis made of
all the cough medicines that were
sold in that market. Out of the
entire list they found only one that
they beclared was entirely tree
from all poisons. This exception
was Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
made by the Chamberlain Medicine
Company, DesMoines, Iowa, U. S.
A. The absence of all narcotics
makes this remedy the safest and
best that can be bad; and it is with
a feeling of security that any
mother can giye it to her little ones.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
especially recommended by its
makers for coughs, colds, croup
and whooping cough. When taken
in time it prevents pneumonia.
This remedy is for sale by P. M.
Kirkland, The Druggist.
Herb W. Edwards Injured.
Herb W. Edwards of Des Moines,
Iowa, got a fall on an icy walk last
winter, spraining nis wrist ana
bruising bis knees. "The next
day." be says, " thev were so sore
and stiff I was afraid I would have
to stay in bed. but I rubbed them
well with Chamberlain's Pain Balm
and after a few applications all
soreness had disappeared. I feel
that this bottle of Pain Balm saved
me several days' time, to say noth-
inir of the suffering." This Iini-
ment is for sale by P. M. Kirkland,
the Druggist. .
