(Continued front page 1)
first time In many years will have
an absolute business administration.
It li woll known that both Olcott
snd Iloff resisted every effort to over
ride the six per cent tax limitation
and were In constant conference, with
the ways end means committee of
the legislature to sue thnt appropria
tions did not exceod the bri net up
In the constitution. The state will
have teamwork from now on In the
Intercut, of tboee who provide the
alnnewa of atate the taxpayer.
. Governor Olcott la a Now Eng
landnr by birth and haa had train
ing In banking business and la In
tlnrtlvely on tho aide of good bus
In km admlnlatratlon. He atanda for
efficiency In service more than
building up political machines, be
lieving that the way to popularise
the party la to serve the people. Be
side being a nlmrod and nature
lover and fond of all kinds of ani
mals, Including dogs, be hss roughed
It a great part of tho time and has
lived In the west, Joining In the
Alaska gold rush, climbing Mt Shas
ta and other peaks. Ills political
battles bav all been against efforts
In different departments of lowering
standards of service. While not a
fad reformer be baa a keen sno of
weak' places In tbe public service
and will not be slow or Indifferent
about strengthening them.
It' Is a well known fact that he
supplied from tbe records of bis of
fice the data for the report of the
consolidation committee. While he
had nothing to do with formulating
their report, If be bad been In the
Governor's chair during the past
session ' he .would not have allowed
consolidated Officialism to ditch the
whole program of promised retrench
ment Reduction of overhead and
groator efficiency would have been
bla slogan and there would have
been a fight to keep platform prom
ises of the party In power which
owing to 111 health Oov. Wlthycombe
could not make. He holds there is
a vital difference In the theory of
government responsibility to .the
proletariat, or government for the
office bolder. The only fight made
on Olcott as a candidate for gover
nor at the prlmarlea grew out of this
conflict of Ideas. No one questioned
his Integrity or ability to fill tbe of-floe.

It Pays To Read
You've often heard the saying, "It pays to advertise." . That
is true. And it also pays, to read advertisements pays you. If
you read advertisements consistently for any length of time you
will agree that this statement is also true. . , .
IT PAYS YOU IN MONEY SAVED. There are many real bar
gains offered from time to .time in the advertisements ap
pearing in this paper. Watch for them. ;
' - 1 ''" : '
IT PAYS YOU IN SATISFACTION. When a merchant asks
you to come to his store he obligates himself to sell you qual
ity goods "as advertised." You have a right to expect satis
faction from what you buy.and you get it.
IT PAYS YOU IN TIME SAVED. When you know exactly
what you want to buy and where you want to buy it, you
' don't have to "look around" and waste time finding it. -

, Don't you want to save money and time? Wouldn't you like to
be sure of getting satisfactory service and quality goods every
time you go to a store? Then read the advertisements and pa

The vital need for organized work
among the girl and young women in
the smaller cities and rural commu
nities of the atate a carrlsd on by
tbe Young Women's Christian asso
ciation baa been brought to the no
tice of the national association dur
ing tbe past two years through the
exegencles of war to such an extent
that a great nation-wide campaign
ha been outlined for , Installing
trained secretaries In tbe towns, the
establishment of a local association
If conditions warrant It, but at least
supervising tbe activities of grade
school girls, high school girls and
young employed girls by means of
clubs, camp and conference, to
broaden and Increase fellowship, to
have good times and to be of service
to each other.
A committee of women represent
ing tbe four northwestern states,
Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Mon
tana, met In Seattle In January and
plana were made for securing funds
for this work. Oregon's quota is
111,395. In a number of counties
the campaign opened February 23;
no date has been set for closing tbe
campalgn aa It will continue . until
tbe quota la reached. Klamath coun
ty haa already turned in It full
quota and Washington county says
it quota Is in sight. In some conn
tie a tag sale Is to be held to secure
the funds. Multnomah county will
raise $5,000, but will not put on its
campaign until after the Armenian
This Is tbe first time tbe National
Young Women's Christian associa
tion has come before tbe public for
funds for two years, and the govern
ment does not allow any of the
money raised last November for the
work of the war work council of the
Yonng Women' Christian associa
tion to be diverted to the regular as
sociation work, hence the necessity
of securing this-money If tbe girls
of the smaller communities Is to be
given -the help, encouragement and

DAILY HEALTH TALKS
What Is The Causa of
' BY DOCTOR COIUnXL
Backache is perhaps the most common
ailment from which women suffer. Rarely
do you find anybody free from it. Some
times the cause is obscure, but Dr. Pierce,
of Buffalo. N. Y.. a high medical authority,
says the cause is very often a form ol
catarrh that settles in tbe delicate mem
brane of the feminine organs. When
these organs are inflamed, the first symp
tom ia backache, accompanied by bearing-
down sensations, weakness, unhealthy dis
charges, irregularity, painful periods, irri
tation, headache and a general run-down
condition. Any woman in this condition
is to be pitied, but pity does not cure. The
trouble call for Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, which is a separate and dis
tinct medicine for women. It is made ol
root and herbs put up without alcohol or
opiate of any kind, for Dr. Pierce uses
nothing else in his prescription. Favorite
Prescription is a natural remedy for wo
men, for the vegetable growths of which it
is made seem to have been intended by
Nature for that very purpose. Thousand
of girl and women, young and old, have
taken it, and thousands have written
grateful letters to Dr. Pierce saying it
made them, trail. In taking Favorite Pre
scription, it Is reassuring to know that it
goes straight to the cause of the trouble.
There is but one way to overcome sickness,
and that ia to overcome the cause. That
is precisely what Favorite Prescription is
intended to do. ' '
