tobacco satisfied, you can tell that
“ Right-Cut” is the Real Tobacco Chew.
For the first time in your life you’ll
get the satisfying taste of pure, rich, mel
low tobacco— seasoned and sweetened
Ready chew— the taste comes steady
all the while right from the start.
Take a very small chew —less than one-quarter the
old size. It will be more satisfying thun a mouthful
o f ordinary tobacco. Just nibole on it until you find
the strength chew that suits you. Tuck it away.
Then let it rest. See how easily and evenly the real
tobacco taste comes, how it satisfies without grindiug, how
much less you have to spit, how few chews you take to
be tobacco satisfied. That's why it is The Real Tobacco
Chew. That’ s why it costs less in the end.

The Oregon City Courier, af
ter continued mysterious adver
tising about “ Kitty” has sprung
a novel surprise in the form o f a
so called article ( " b y Kitty” ).
I-t is possible that a few o f the
masculine populace o f Clackamas
county know what a “ kitty” is,
in connection with a quiet poker
game. Anyway a “ kitty” is a
little side pot, made up o f a per
centage o f the money at stake,
which pot is used to defray the
expenses o f the game, or repre
sents the gambling house propri
etor’ s share or rake-off.
“ K itty” in her current article
tells o f a so-called kitty or rake-
off which for years past has been
present in the office o f the county
clerk, comprising additional fees
and gratuities, emanating from
the n stin g of certified copies of
documents and from other sour
Inasmuch as the 1903 session
laws provided for fiat salaries o f
county officers, it was expected
that such fees would be turned
in to the county treasurer, but
apparently that has not been the
case, for “ K itty” discloses the
fact that these small sums o f
money are placed in a separate
pot r kitty and used for and by
the employes o f the office. The
kitty often amounting ty as high
$30. per month.
While “ K itty’s ” revelations
are not absolutely a chronicling
o f dishonesty, they are at least
an exposure o f a waste in county
The tax payers will probably
appreciate further articles by
“ K itty,” descriptive o f her ram-
blings and perigrinations through
other county offices, and if poor
“ Kitty” cant smell out the rats
alone, we can assure her o f our
help and moral support.

New School Law Provides People
Shall Know Of Expenses
A new state educational law
recently went into effect which
provides that hereafter in mak
ing tax levies every school dis
trict in the state must publish a
budget o f the estimated amount
o f revenue required fo** the en
suing year for the maintenance
of the schools. It is also manda
tory that the districts in which
high schools are maintained,
shall publish notices of special or
annual meetings o f the districts
at least two weeks before the
meeiing ¡3 held.
where there are no newspapers
the notice is posted on the door
o f the school house, but where
newspapers are published the no
tice appears in the papers.
Following is the section relat
ing to the budgets:
“ Section 2. It shall be the
duty o f the district clerk o f any
district at least two weeks before
a meeting is held for the purpose
o f levying taxes to publish in one
or more newspapers published in
the district and having general
circulation, a budget statement
o f the.estimated amount o f rev
enue required for the ensuing
year for the maintenance o f the
school district, and in districts in
which no newspaper is published
the clerk shall post sucli budget
on the door o f the school house
in said district at least ten days
before the meeting. It shall be
the duty o f directors o f any such
district to make out and deliver
to the district clerk o f their dis
trict, an itemized statement o f
the amourt o f revenues which
may he required for the purpose
o f carrying on the district schools
for the ensuing year, which state
ment shall be signed by the board
o f directors at a legally called
hoard meeting” .
It would appear from this plain
law that unless it is complied
with the school tax will be void.
To Bridge The Clackamas

this bridge the road wi 1 be con
