Watch Repairing
Is My Business
and I give
careful, painstaking attention to it. I give
especial attention to the repairing of fine
watches the kind of watches that need
extra careful adjustment. I try to have
my work give such satisfaction as will
win the confidence of all who leave their
watch repairing in my hands. I want
you to feel that when you leave your
watch with me for repairs, the work will
be done to the best of my ability and in
a competent manner. It is my ambition
in 8 small measure already established,
of doing honest, thorough watch repair

ingot the democratic state convention
today, business proceeded with expedi
tion. Ex-Congressman Hosea H. Rock
well of Chemung, was elected permanent

ticket. The platform unreservedly endor
sed the platform adopted by the demo
cratic party in the national convention at
Chicago, pledges William J. Bryan and
Arthur Sewall a hearty and active sup
port and declares as its deliberate judge
ment that never in the history of the
democratic party has a platform been
written which embodied more complete
ly the interest of the whole people, as
distinguished from those who seek legis
lation for private benefit, than that given
the country by the national democratic
fconvention of 1896.

1 Ruddock Again Escapes.
! East Oregonian : Isaac Rudock and
John Riley, prisoners in the Umatilla
county jail, walked out from behind the
bars through the open jail doors Monday
evening and made for tall timber.
Riley made a successful escape, and.
when night had closed down, he was still
at liberty. But Rudock was quickly re
captured, and, for the second time,
brought back to the jail, a captured fugi
tive. Ruddock was seen walking toward
the railroad track, and the officials in the
sheriff's office were informed that Rud
deck was abroad in the land. A quick
search of the jail was made, and the dis
covery was that Ruddock and Riley were
missing. ,
Ruddock was found down at the O. R.
& N. Go's track hiding under a car.
: He remarked when once more in cus
tody that he would always walk out of
jail when the doors were found open and
be could so easily escape.

lenge to an end in the following words:
"The exalted position you and I res
pectively hold you as a United States
senator, and I as a sovereign citizen of
the United States justifies the challenge
I now make to you in a joint debate on
the third day of October, you aa champ
ion for McKinley, and I will lay on for
V "You cannot have the prudential reas
ons that caused McKinley to refuse Bry
an's challenge, and Harrison to decline
the challenge of Teller, and I will there
fore expect your acceptance of tbis chal
lenge by return man, so that proper
rangements may be made.

"A. D. Stillman."

It iB understood, although the officials
of the road are reticent about the matter,
rtbat should the 0. R. & N. extend its
road from Dayton to Covello that the W.
& O. R., will also branch out in that
direction, probably as tar as Lewiston,
Idaho. The trade of the rich agricultural
region east of Dayton is a bone of con
tention between the rival roads, which
will probably end before fall in both
roads having linej into that part of the
The intimation that the W. & O. R,
contemplates branching out to lewiston
seem to partially fulfill predictions made
some time ago that, according to the sur
vey of the Burlington route, it was highly
probable that the line would strike Lew
iston, thence go on to Dayton, where the
W, A C. R. would be utilized to tbe
Columbia and so on to the coast. It is
with this end in view, possibly, that
this extention will be made, which, fi
carried out, will place Walla Walla on a
main line of one of the great transconti
nental roads.

My husband was in debt and I being
anxious to help him thought I would sell
self-heating flat ironB, and I am doing
splendidly. A cent's worth of fuel will
heat the Iron for three hours, so you
have a perfectly even heat. You can
iron in half the time and no danger of
scorching the clothes as with the old
iron, and you can get the moBt beautiful
gloss. I sell at nearly every house, as
the iron eaves so much fuel everybody
wants one. I make tl 50 on each iron
and have not sold less than ten any day I
worked. My brother is doing well and I
think anyone can make lots of money
anywhere selling Irons. Tho J. F. Casey

Gray Hair Made Dark.
I saw in your paper a statement that
I Zula Vulier would restore any head of
nair to natural color in tnree weeks. As
I was very gray I sent for a sample pack
age, and in less than three weeks my
hair was perfectly restored to natural
color. My wife's hair was a light red,
and by using Zulu Vulier, her hair is
now a beautiful auburn. Any one can
get a sample package ot Zulu Vulier by
sending 21 two-cent stamps to Wilson &
Co., New Concord, Ohio, and if it does
not restore the hair to natural color in
three weeks they will return your stamps ;
it not only restores the hair to natural
color, but will stop the hair falling out
immediately and is one ot the beet hair
tonics made, and you take no risk, and
if it does not satisfy, you perfectly they
will return your stamps. A Header.

panacea for all ills." Price 60 cents.
