1917 State Millage Tax '
Fund Lower Than Last Year
Salem Millage taxes to be raised
for the Oregon Normal School Univer
sity of Oregon, Oregon Agricultural
college and state road fund show a
combined slump of $54,873.78 for
1917 from the tax raised for the same
funds during the year 1916. j
The total raised in 1918 for the four
funds was $924,850.08, as compared to
$869,976.30 to be raised during the
coming year. ,
In 1917 the following sums are to be
raised by millage taxes for the four
funds: Normal School, $33,150.56;
road fund, $219,690.89; Oregon Agri
cultural college, $351,505.58; Univer
sity of Oregon, $263,629.18.
In 1916 the following sums were
raised for the same funds: Normal
School, $37,379.80; road fund, $233,.
623.76; Oregon Agricultural college,
$373,798.01; University of Oregon,
The reason for the slump is in the
approximate $55,000,000 decrease of
the assessed valuation for the entire
While the millage taxes have de
creased because of the drop .in the
total assessed valuation, this did not
affect the amounht of the levy for all
state purposes to be raised during the
year 1917, and as a result a decrease
in the amount to be raised by millage
taxes allows a similar increase in the
amount of money that might be ap
propriated for other purposes.
But this applies only to the 1917
taxes. The next legislature has the
question of a biennium to consider,
and as a result it is faced by the possi
ble contingencies which may arise in
1918. If the assessed valuation in
creases materially in 1918, the amount
that will be raised on millage taxes
for that year will show a consequent
increase. As a rseult of such an in
crease, if it occurred, the amount of
money that could be appropriated for
other purposes would be proportionate
Control Budget $15,000.
Salem The Oregon State board of
control asks for $15,000 for the next
biennium in its budget presented to
the secretary of state, an amount equal
to that eiven for the preceding two
years. This board manages the Ore
gon state hopsital, the Eastern Oregon
state hospital, State Institution for the
feeble-minded, Oregon state training
school, State penitentiary. State school
for the blind, State school for the
deaf. State tuberculosis hospital, Sol
diers' home, Industrial school for girls,
and also has charge of making specific
improvements at the Capitol building
and Supreme court building. .
The appropriaiton is asked to cover
the salaries of three employes, which
aggregate $9550 for the two years,
and general maintenance which cost is
estimated at $5450.
$20,300 Asked for Tests.
Salem Three hundred dollars less is
asked by the department education for
the State board examiners for the next
two years than was given for the past
two years. The total amount asked
for the coming biennium is $20,300.
The legislature of 1911 abolished
the 34 county boards for examining
applicants for teachers' certificates
and placed the work upon the State
superintendent and a State board of
examiners. The number of applicants
at each examination are held in June
and December of each year.
During the past year about 21,910
letters have been received relating to
certificates and as many answered. In
eluded in the estimated cost are salar
ies and traveling expenses of em
ployes and general maintenance.
IF KIDNEYS ACI

Says Backache is sign you have
been eating too much
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery in the kidney region
It generally means you have been eat
ing too much meat, says a well-known
authority. Meat forms uric acid
which overworks the kidneys in their
effort to filter it from the blood and
they become sort of paralyzed and
loggy. When your kidneys get slug
gish and clog you must relieve them,
like you relieve your bowels; remov
ing all the body's urinous waste, else
you have backache, sick headache,
dizzy spells; your stomach sours,
tongue is coated, and when the wea
ther is bad you have rheumatic
twinges. The urine is cloudy, full of
sediment, channels often get sore, wa
ter scalds and you are obliged to seek
relief two or three times during the
Either consult a good, reliable phy
sician at once or get from your phar
macist about four ounces of Jad Salts;
take a tablespoonful- in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize
acids in the urine so it no longer irri
tates, thus ending bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is a life Baver for regular
meat eaters. It is inexpensive, can
not injure and makes a delightful, ef
fervescent lithia-water drink.
Cranberry Juice Falls
From "Water Wagon"
Portland Cranberry culture, which
thrives at North Beach, Wash., in the

Investigating Epidemic of Rabies.
North Yakima Dr. H. T. Graves,
acting commissioner of agriculture,
will spend several days, here giving
personal consideration to the rabies
situation. In controlling the outbreak
which appears to have originated in
the White Swan district on the Yaki
ma Indian reservation, three weeks
ago, the department is greaty ham
pered by the lack of assistance and the
distances to travel. A number of ani
mals, including three of J. T. Harrah'B
airedale hounds, have died, and many
others, suspected, have been killed.

Cattle Wintered in Yakima.
North Yakima From 10,000 to 12,
000 head of cattle are being fed in the
Yakima valley this winter, with the
idea of finishing them for market on
grass in the early spring. Stockmen
find this a profitable business. Rail
roads have moved 600 cars of fat catte
from the valley this season just past
to market, of which about 200 cars
were of home production and the re
mainder stock brought in for fattening.
