The eye is a wonderful piece of divine mechanism and
deserves the best care within the reach of human knowledge.
The delicate construction of this organ makes it neces
sary to use great care in selecting eye glasses and spectacles.
It is not generally understood by those depending on
artificial assistance for good vision, that it requires as much
scientific knowledge to adjust lenses to the eye as it does to
prescribe medicines for the human system.
Much of the present day eye trouble is due to wearing
cheap, decentered lenses fitted ( ? ) by incompetents, or
bought across the counter or from peddlers.
W e cease to wonder at the magnitude of present day
eye trouble, when we think of the thousands who are wear
ing such glasses— lenses which change and distort the rays
of light, producing innumerable eye ailments and defects.
No person should wear a glass unless prescribed by a re
liable specialist—one thoroughly

Finds Central Oregon

Well pleased with the Central
Oregon region, Edwin Bates, Jr.,
has returned to Portland, after
filing on a homestead. He traveled
about 150 miles by stage aud spent
several days at Fort Rock, near
which settlement he made a filing.
He found the country well popu

by their first year’ s crop. He will
make settlement this spring.
Mr. Bates arrived at Fort Rock a
few days after the killing by officers
of C. E. Shaeffer, a turbulent set

his aunt on a ranch neat Fort Rock.
He beat up a homesteader aud

COUNCIL SCRAP CONTINUES
Alderman John Osborne has re
signed his office, having filed notice
with City Recorder Devore. If the
resignation is accepted, the mayor
may appoint a successor.
Discussing his resignation, Os
borne said he desired to avoid taking
sides in the recent dispute in coun
cil over the question of authority.
As he expressed it he proposed to
get out “ while the going was good. ”
Alderman Jones who lias been
served with notice of removal from
the police committee, declines to
abdicate, claiming Mayor Reed has
uo right to depose him without just
cause. Jones says the mayor hasn’ t
proved a case against him.
When at the adjourned regulai
meeting of the city council last
Thursday evening, Mayor Reed
served notice upon Alderman Jones
deposing him as a member of the
police committee and appointing
Alderman Hawkins in his stead,
Jones promptly denied executive
authority and declared he would
continue to serve. Then ensued a
warm exchange between the mayor
at.d the alderman, in which person
alities figured, much to the amuse
ment of a big crowd in attendance.
Stripped of verbiage, the issues
were joined on the question of usur
pation of authority, each accusing
the other. Jones claimed the ordi
nance gave the committee authority
over the marshal aud the mayor
read a section of the ordinance giv
ing him absolute supervision over
The mayor said he was of the
opinion that he and Marshal Ames
would have worked in harmony had
it not been for interference by A l
derman Jones. Jones hotly denied
that he was the only one to be
blamed and said the mayor was
placing too much credence in ru

reports brought to me of what you

with the new state law, but the law

Cary also addressed the council
