The following from the Seattle
News applies to Oregon condition! in
respect to the road and tbe relation
of wide tire to the wear and tear
thereof: "New legislation is to be
a-ked at the hands of the next legisla
ture by the good roads men of the
state looking to the improvement of
the public highways. One of the
chief things to bring about good roads
in the state of Washington seeins to
have been ignored by the good roads
people np to this time wide tires.
Every trave'er in Europe knows that
one ol the leadine reasons for good
roads in France, Belgium, Germany,
Eugland and Scotland is the wide tire
laws of those countries.
"Wide tires afe especially necessary
Id tbe Puget Sound country for the
preservation and protection of the
roada on account of the rainy Winter
months. It is bat little use to mac
adamize roads if farmers and others
are to be allowed to load a wagon to
the limit wbioh lias wheels with one
and one-half inch tires. The beat
macadam road ever built cannot stand
the cutting of narrow tire wagons
when tbey are soft from the continual
rains of the Puget Sound oountry
or when soft with the frost coming
out of tbe gronnd, as they are in the
Spring of tbe year 1 n tbe eastern part
of the state.
1 'In France, where the very acme of
good roada are to be seen, no wagon is
allowed with less than three-inch
tires, running on np to six inches,
and another precantion for the pro
tection of the roads la that tbe wheels
shall not tread. Under this legisla
tion heavy draft wagons serve as
rollers on the roads and all the team
ing helps to improve the loads instead
of destroying them.
"This subject was recognized in the
state of Ohio more than SO years ago.
hen the early legislation was enacted
for the protection and preservation of
what was then called 'free gravel
roads, ' being the macadamized roads
of today. About 1873 a law was
enacted forbidding the hauling of
more than 1100 pounds on any wagon
at certain seasons of the year, notably
tbe late Fall and early Spring, hav
ing tires two Incdes wiae or ss.
Tbe load allowed to be hanled on
wagons of three, four, five and six
incb tires was likewise regulated, bat
it was found, after some years, that
even this law was defective-in that
it did not provide that the front and
rear wheels should not tread. '
There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other dis
eases nut together, and until the last
few years was supposed to be incur
able. For a great many years doo
tors pronounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and by
constantly failing to cnre with local
treatment,' pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catairb to be a
constitutional disease and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured

the only constitutional cure Ti the
market. It is taken internally in

The Ads Are Interesting.
Wni. Everett Gladstone, tbe famous
English premier, used to say that
he liked American magazines because
of their advertisements. Today you
may pick up any reputable paper and
you will find page after age of artistic
pictures and attractive reading. The
idea in araugiug an advertisement is
to catch the eye ; and the average ad
writer has sense enough to appeal to
tbe artistio instinct of men rather
tban to the grotesqoe. A well known
business man said a few days ago that
be liked certain papers simply for
their advertising. He said he got as
good an idea of what was being done
in his line of business by reading the
advertising pages as from tbe regular
articles in the magazine. There is no
question about this. Valuable infor
mation can be acquired easily and
readily from these pages. If it were
not so advertising would be leas
profitblae. The reading pnblio turn
to the ads for something more tban
to see wbat they are going to buy.
This section of a paper is really im
portant from the standpoint of the
reader because of the information be
gets from pictures and facts. If yon
doubt this, just take up a magazine
and see if we are not right.
It is ttated that there are about
235,000 miles of cable in all at the
bottom of the sea. Each mile oosts
about f 1000 to lay.
Medford has an asturance of escape
from the r re vailing fuel famine in
the siicoefs which has attended the
exploitation of the coal prospects near
there by the Bine Ledge Mining
Company, says the Daily Tribune of
that city. Tbe development to date
establish conclusively tbe permanent
character and superior quality of tbe
deposit. Much of the product has
been delivered at the mine and the
local consumption has been consider
able, the reeolt being equally satis
factory to consumers. The value of
this immense deposit of standard
grade fuel is almost incalculable. It.
presence in such vast quantities makes
factories, additional railway lines and
other enterprises dependent upon a
convenient fuel supply not only possi
ble but altogether probable acquisi
tions to the city.
We do not hesitate to assert that the
year now dawning will see a busy
mining camp located at the . site of
the coal mines and a spur truck con
necting them with tbe main line of
the Southern Pacific This enterprise
bas passed the prospective stage. Tbe
stable character of the product is
safely established and it means mill
ions to tbe operators.,
