Mr. H'lmer'i Views.
Dear Editor: The prohibition vote
at the recent election in Southern Ore
gon hag been a surprise to many.
This sweeping denunciation of sa
loons comes mostly from the impure
whinker handled by many of them and
the bad coudnct resulting from the
use of bad whiskey. It is entirely
reasonable to aoppote that w heu a an
pours down into his stomach a mix
tare of high nines, creosote and to
bacco juice that he will nut only look
blear eyed at ladies, spit on the side
walk, stagger about aud insist on
blowing tlie "bloom" Into every
sober uiaus faoe, and that he will
want to lick somebody aud would pro
bably while delirious aud ciazy, much
rither be larruped himtelf thau to
go his way in peaoe. B fore the civil
war when small "stills" wra allowed
to run anywhere, make pure liquor
and sell it at 20 ceuts a gallon, there
a bat little dissipation aud very few
Since the civil war matters have
sone from bad to worse tight along.
I hae always believed that the
fit at doty of the geueral government
toward ttmptrauce was to sieze and
pour out luto the gutter every drop of
impure liquor wberevtr found, bnt
instead in ita blind prejudice, it has
shut down even small dUtillrrs.bnnted
them and even shot the owners and
employei for what? Why for at
tempting to make pore whiskey.
The government closed all of these
small "stills" by imposing duties aud
expenses upon them so gieat that they
even wre criveu from bosim as. They
GIVE NATURE A CHANCE.
The strongest minds have gotten their
Inspiration direct from Mature. Nature
is the great toacher of mankind. We
can look to Nature for all our needs. In
the recent Russo-Japanese war the sur-
5 eons of the Japanese navy and army
iscovered that wounds would heal more
rapidly and with better success if left to
Nature. They wished the wounds with
water which had been boiled and thus
sterilized then bandaged the wounds
with clean linen no powerful drugs or
antiseptics were used in their first aid to
the Injured. Such methods resulted in
the loss of only 32 out of fiH2 men treated
In a naval hospital for their wounds. It
Is only from lack of observing Nature's
laws that most of us suffer at one time
or another from indigestion, impure
blood and a generally run-down system.
Our remedy lies In Nature's laboratory
deep in the fragrant woods where are
many American plants, the roots oi
which when properly treated will sup
ply a health-giving tonic
Many years ago a physician who had
an extensive practice among the afflicted
made a striking departure from the usual
methods of his confreres in medicine he
went straight to Nature for the cure ol
those stomach disorders w hich resulted
so often In an anrnilc condition, or Im
pure blood, less of appetite, pale or
pimply skin, feeling of lassitude and
weakness. He found that the bark of
the Klack Cherry-tree, the root of the
Mandrake, Stone root, Oueen'a root,
Bloodroot and Golden Seal root, made
Into a scientific, non-alcoholic extract by
the use of glycerine, made the best altera
tive and tonic. The refreshing influence
of this extract Is at once apparent In the
recovered strength of the patients the
vital tires of the body burn brlirhtur and
their increased activity consumes the
tissue rubbish which otherwise may
poison the system. This alterative and
tonic extract has been found to stand
alone as a safe, Invigorating tonic, as It
does not depend on alcohol for a false
stimulation, but is A'mure't mim method
of strengthening and cleansing the sys
tem. It tones up the stomach and the
blood in Nature's own way. It is well
known all over the world as Pr. Pierce's
(iolden Medical Discovery. The name
was slven to this vegetable compound
because one of the Unuortant ingredients I
was Golden Seal root. Such an
authority as Dr. Kolierts Itartholow, of
Jefferson Medical College, says "very use

of the stomach and headaches accom

his book Organic Medicines, speaking of
(iolden Seal root, says that "as a liver

he says, "in chronic Inflammation of the

able agents of cure. As a tonic In the
convalescing stages of fevers, pneumonia,

the most happy combination of this
Golden Seal root with otter efficacious
roots enhancing and Increasing In cura

There has been oragnized effort
which has been sncorsvful in diiviug
oat the saloon. Let us now t.ke into
account saloon substitute. Let
"eternal vigilance" be the watchword
and, with God as onr leader, go for
ward to greater victories.
Many think tbe W. 0. T. V. have
the drinking fountain in r hrg , but
this is a mistake. When the f nutaln
was completed, fully equipped with

uiauageineut ceased and the ty now
has fail control.
Boone County, Mo., is one of the

that has Impressed Itself up u tbe
