and persistent headache, those nerve trying aches
which drugs fail to relieve more than temporarily;
may reveal some hidden defect that is sapping
your nervous vitality, thus effecting organs remote
from your eyes; might disclose the obscure cause
of nervous disorders, the relief of which would af
ford you untold joy.

we, but many of our patients who have previously

BIG CROWD AT GARFIELD HALL
SEARCH FORJIDDEN TREASURE
Edward Werlein of the P. R. l ,. & P.
Co., in a talk which caught the crowd,
declared that “ pull is everything” and
that “ Estacada being so far from the
seat of government probably does not
get its deserts.”
" I t is timely for you to see if you
can keep house; to see if you can get
to the seat of government” he added.
Henry Epperson of Garfield wanted
to know “ why we shouldn’t have a
county in Eastern Clackamas where
conditions are different” and answered
“ that we should.”
H. F. Gibson, a busieess man of Bar
ton, said, at first he was inclined to
doubt the wisdom of division.
“ But after reading your excellent
paper here and consulting with my
neighbors, we decided to be for divi
sion,” he said. “ You need not fear a
contest from Barton or Boring for the
county seat. Estacada is the logical
point. I’ll work for it.”
