it was a fact and not an halluci
nation caused from drinking
slough water. It is quite unusual
to find a snake at this season of
the year but our mild winter has
caused hibernating animals and
reptiles to change their habits.

Republican ticket, for the office I
of joint Senator for Grant. Har- :
ney and Malheur counties.
I believe in the "Oregon Plan",
and would safeguard it against'
all possible encroachment of cor-,
ruption and machine politics.
I believe in the election of U. '
S. Senator by direct vote of the
people, and will subscribe to
Statement No. 1. ;
To my mind, the last legisla-'
ture was grossly extravagant in
handling public funds. With our
state tax levy more than doubling
at one bound, I am convinced it
is time to call a halt, and if elect
ed, I pledge unceasing watchful
ness on my part against such un
warranted inroads on the State
treasury. At this time, I believe
a legislator's first and main duty
is to detect and block as much
bad legislation as possible.letting
new legislation, to a great extent,
be a secondary consideration.
This will be my motto if elected.
I believe in and will work for
more strict State regulation of
public utilities, including enforc
ed publicity of their records, to
the end that we may have better
service and more reasonable and
equitable rates.

When Smith died the people
heard that he left everything he
had to the Orphan Asylum. They
admired him and praised him.
Then, when they heard that he
left nothing but twelve children
they changed their minds. There
is no more sacred duty than pro
tecting your family. The surest
way to do this is to insure your
life in a reliable company. Other
investments may go wrong,
Honest life insurance never does.
