Notwithstanding the general (leprae
Inn. there teems to be a healthy condi
tion in our local finances. The number
of depositors at tbe Farmers' Bank of
Weston has doubled within the last six

the advantage of a bank.
The temporary organization of the Mc

One of the prettiest mountain orchards
in the country is at Fairview Farm,
where R. F. Johnson has eight or ten
acres in fruit, which he carefully culti
vatos. He succKsalully grows nearly all
kinds of large and small fruits known to
the temperate zioe. Mr Johnson re

prunes and apples. Cherries and pears
are a poor crop, and peaches are hardly
up to the average.
Mr. Harvey Young, one of tbe men
rhiefly interested in placer discoveries at
the Walla Walla river at the Slide, was
interviewed lately by a Leader represen

a ditch in order to da effective work and
that they are digging it through a kind
of naturally cemented gravel which
mikes it hrd to dig, but all of the way
the? are going through pay dirt.

A marriage license was iasued Tuesday
to Cbas. M. T. Scott and Jennie Haffnei,

Milton, is in Walla Walla at tbe residence
of a relative lying at death's door. He
is afflicted with Brigbt's disease aud his

the city last Saturday and interviewed a
number of our orchardists and farmers
with a view of inducing them to collect
and send down an exhibit of fruit, grains

over tbe state in the capacity of solicitor J
for tbe Industrial Exposition, and in con

that nowhere bad be seen fruits and
grains this season that would compare
with those found in the vicinity of Mil

participated in the organization of a club
at the Opera Hall last Wednesday night.
A good crowd, in which were included

Needmore Farm, (which is in Umatil
la kounty) Septimber 24. To the Editur
nv the Press. Muse in this neck o' wuds
is sum what scarce an depresluted in
quality; that is, uv a lokal natur, so yoo
will hev to parden me If I wander off in
to our nashunal resources sumwhat in
gettin' up this weak 'a letter.
Ther only thing w'ich I kin call to my
mine of lokal Importance, thet has hap
pened this weak, is Link Swaggarts pen
asity fur to bye horses out uv tbe tity
pound, an' thon trade er give 'em away
to different peeple, in fact, eny way two
git red U7 'em. The Una deal w'ich hn
made wns on lass Tuesday, w'en he bid
in, for kush In nan' Kutty Garden's ole
rodesteer w'ich Kutty humanly turned
out on the kommons ter dye, over a year
ago. The h ws didn't hev a blemish on
Lira, 'cplin to spavins. Thtsa didn't
show to env extent, an in iny erpinion,
wus the beit trade thet Link has made
since I've known him. But like meny
nv us, ho didn't no a good thing when he
seed it, an' in a evil moment anuther
hossman kura along with a )mule an ft
boss k ay use. Thet is dognashus nv the
breed uv the animule, an I no I'm rite if
color counts fur enytbing, an I guess it
due. Link traded fur the maulteeze kay
use, an ss a result, had ter git ther lone
nv a friend'a hoss to git home. Ther lat
I saw uv the kayuse, Green Estcs wus
holdin' it by the tale, while Bill Young
wua tryin' to restore it to cothlenee by
turnin' tli hoa i on It. Mr. Young is
an adept in playin' with hose, an in this
instance he acquitted himself with ti er
usual amrunt uv credit in displayin' tbe
advantages uv the eity water eitteai.
Anuther subjeck uv loial importance
w'ich Is apytatin' the puhlick mine in
the viBinity o' the Needmore ransh, is a
veiy serious reileckihun on ther karacter
uv our mutual friend, Mr. Siclone Davis,
thei Texas statesman. The neverlylng
an ever ahthentick associated press de
spatches assert in a manner that kaint
be downed by enybody with a weekly
etumtniuk, that Siclone la preamberlatin'
arm in arm with gole bugs nv the same
stripe an rasin' as Mark Manner, who
baa kum too ther top uv tbe ladder, an is
baakin' in the emoluments uv a nashun
al repartashun an 20 go's p'e-es w'ich
is at ther disposal uv the republikans to
by McKinley a chair w'ich stands in the
white house, an w'ich I suppoxs "Mao"
wants fur a relick, seein' as its the chair
all nv the presidents hev sot In frura
George W ashington, down. Now, I kaint
hardly atummick these sayin's uv Siclone
leavin' the fold, kin yoo? But dispach
es don't lye lestwise tney don't onless
they're doctored by the lelegraf editur uv
the Oregonian, or w'en the Pendleton
tribune runs 'em fur eddytoriale. These
papers don't kount fur 6. The Oregon
ian is w'at stont republikans style a gole
bug nuaepaper nv standard pertensions,
an the tribune aint red by nobody ceptin
swedes an lokal polyticians.
Jest to put a naehunal color to mj let
ter, this weak, I will peipound a little
kernundrum i the way o' poetry, w'ich I
gleaned frum a nusepaper. It's very
simple. It's about a hat, an eny school
boy kan seo through it at onct. If my
memmory serves me rite, it woz euthin'
like this:
I'm a thrifty Cantonese,
Raisin' uv a tariff breeze ;
I stand up fur perteckehn, gole an all uv
that;
I've been on the turf afore,
You've scene me on the floor,
But you'd hardly know me in this hat.
The grate Boneypart wna small,
But thet didn't hrako hiss fall;
He wuc ship to St. ilellena, an awl that.
Tbey awl say thet he looked like me
An' wus as smart as be cud be
Thet'a the reason I'm wcarin' this hat.
Now, don't guy me, if yer please; .
Say I don't quite reach his 'ni-es,
As soldier er statesman, an awl uv thet;
An w'atever else yer do,
Don't menshun Waterlew,
Or you'll scare the crimps outuv this bat.
Also, uv nashunal importance, kunis
the story frum Milton, ther place whar
they airygate everything even their
stummicks, so I'm told. Ther story in
quextion, bears mighty hevy on the pro
duekshun uv that favered sexshun uv
our kounty, au is backed np by the aayeo
uv a man who is nut a divishonest. As
usual thei is a woman in the kase.
She is a certain society lady, who kon
eluded, fur sum unknown reason, to take
a ro'.tsge up in the mtantiu'a, sommers
near the tolegait, duriu' the hot prorshun
uv the soeisn, an more'n that, she pro
posed to tke a hand in housexeepin'
hertelf. She had friends who bad a
kountry home, close by, an as an append
age two ther estate, a number uv fine
jersy betters. As a speshal faver, the
soosiety lsdy asked ter be supplied with
milk, fur she had hearu so much o' jarey
milk. The faver wus granted an awl
went well fur 7 days an nites, an then
tbe owners uv tne kountry house an
jeisy heffers wus coldly informed that
they needn't take the trubble eny longer
fur after the milk stood a lettle while,
it woa kivered with a thick, yaller stuff
on top an had ter be throwed out!
Now, not speakin' litely uv Irrlgaebun,
or tbe kountry in w'ich it is done, ther is
one thing that won't stand airigaehun,
an that Is milk. If the Milton: Eagle
wood keep perfectly quiet on the kow
question, w'ich is at present agitatin the
publick mine uv our i later town akroes
tbe hills, the citizens cud paster their
kows in the streets, and once in a period
or too, tit a drink 'o milk that wood kon
tain sntt.in aside o' airigazhun ditch wat
er. It mite also perventsich measly bad
brakes away frum home, as wus made
by this sooeiety woman, in relaabnn to
j-iv heffer cream, w'ich is very likely
alnff ter put on strawberries an in coffee.
Yours fur a hier notch in wheat,
J. Jouulyn Jacobs.
In the County Court.
The county court yesterday ordered
vacated and set aside tbe report of the
viewers in tho matter of road No. 479,
known as the Overturf road, near Milton,

Hair Restored to Natural Color.
I have used many preparations for re
storing hair to natural color, but never
had satisfactory results until I used Zulu
Vulier: it will restore any hair or beard
to its natural color in three weeks. If it
docs not they ic'urn your money, so you
take no rleks. People who have never
tried it can gnt a sample package which
contains enough to restore anyone's hair
to natural color, by sending 21 ' cent
stamps, to pay postege etc., to Wil
eon & Co., New Concord, Ohio.
The regular price is $2 50 a package.
If it does not restore your hair to natural
color, or make any color of hair darker
in three weeks, they will return your
stamps. This proposition is so fair that
thousands are using It. It is harmless
but never fails. Why can't big money
ne made by selling Zulu Vulier from
house to house?

THE C A. BARRETT COMPANY,
Athena Oregon-
A Bicvcle constructed ot material that is solid, tough and wiry;
that ia simple in conetruction, easily taken apart and put together again
has few Darts, is of such wirv material that its parts will hold together
even in an accident, no hollow material to be crushed in by every con
tact; a frame that cannot possibly be broken; a frame so simple inai us -adjusting
parts serve as its connecting parts; a one-piece crank in place
of a dozen parts; always ready to give reliable and rapid transportation.
SPECIFICATIONS AND DESCRIPTIONS.
FRAME. Improved Double Diamond. What is a Double
Diamond Frame? Simply a true truss in every direction for strains
that occur in Cvcles the outline of two diamonds in its makeup, lhe
frames are constructed of f-inch cold rolled steel rods, the toughest and
strongest metal for its weight known, and the parts are joined togeiner
with steel and aluminum bronze lutings in such a manner mai it is
impossible to brake or any part to work loose. A marvel of novelty,
simplicity and durability, tho greatest combination of ingenuity in bi
cycle mechanism, to build a frame without brazen joints and tubing,
as you know that frames continually break and fracture at Drazen joints
and tubes when they are buckled in cannot be repaired. We guaran
tee our Double Diamond Frame for three years. You cannot
break it. Standard size steering head and wheel base, ball bearings
at both ends of head. .
WHEELS. 28-inch front and rear, warranted one-piece wood
rims, best quality piano wire spokes and brass nipples, large barrel hubs
fitted with "Arhnglon" hose pipe, Morgan & Wright -'quick repair," or
some other first-class pneumatic tire.
AXLE AND BEARINGS. Indestructible ball bearings tnrougn
out, with 148 hardened steel, balls. Crank shaft' bearings are fatted with
our patent ball cases, which are interlocked and support each other and
cannot possibly come apart while in use. Are neat and cover the bear
ings completely. It has been an acknowledged lact mat cranK axie
bearings are susceptible of improvement, as threaded cones or crank ax
les are continually crowding or .working loose, we save mis enure nuis
ance by having no threaded parts whatever, but a clever device in frame
for adjustment, Our invention is most perfect in simplicity and must
be seen to be appreciated. The sprocket and chain are on tne insiae oi
the frame and ball bearings. Great value is gained by this arrange
ment; ease of running, double wear eaved, positive never loose bearings,
freedom from contact with chain and sprocket, smooth outward globu-
Jar ball bearings, less friction and lost motion, hence greater speed.
Then with the jointless "one-piece crank," feet, ankles and trousers are
free from injury. -
ONE-PIECE CRANK. Our greai, achievement; , by its appn- T;
cation we put two cranks, two pedal axles, two keys, six screws, six nut-
and four washers all in one piece- From 5U to 1UU per cent, oi an tne
trouble to bicycles is from cranks working loose and pedal axles that
break from clamping connections. They get loose co matter how much
pains is taken to: key and tighten them.. This is caused by too many
parts, and it is entirely saved by our device, which is but one piece,
and made from tough rolled steel rods, impossible to break. It has been
Droven that when other cranks break from accident, our one-piece crank
will hardly bend. - "
CHAIN. number bldck pattern, best quality, hardened.
SPROCKET WHEELS. Best drop forged steel.
REACH. Shortest, 28 inches; longest, 37 inches.
GEAR. 64 or 72, as specified.
FRONT FORKS. Indestructible. Our fork crowns are simply
a section of gun barrel steel turned up to size, then bored and bent,
forming a perfect'fork crown that cannot be surpassed for strength and
beauty, also giving a support to our solid cold rolled lork rods that just
limit the necessary amount of springiness required in a front fork nd
which can only be obtained by use of our forks and crown.
HANDLE BARS. Reversible and adjustable, a marvel or sim
plicity, readily adjusted to any position desired, with best cork or com
position handles. In buying a bicycle it is always a vexed question as
to whether vou want dropped or elevated handle bars. If you wanted
one kind you could not have the other. Our handle bar enables you to
have either at will. Will furnish Ram's Horn handle bars it preferred.
SADDLES. Gilliam, P. & P., Reading, or other first-class make.
PEDALS. Rat trap or rubber; full ball bearing.
FINISH. All oarts are enameled with our own special enamel,
rubbed down and baked, eiving it a handsome black, glossy appearance.
All bright parts are heavily nickle-plated; these, with the jet black gloss
parts, give a handsome appearauce which cannot be excelled.
ACCESSORIES. Each "May wood" Bicycle is furnished with a
leather tool bag, containing pump, wrench and patent oiler.
WEIGHT. According to tires, pedals, saddles, from 'Zl to dU lbs.
A PRICE THAT WILL REACH YOU.
Do not imagine because it is not high priced it is not high grade
We do not use expensive hollow tubing, besides,. we belong to no Com
bination or Trust. We own every patent, pav no royalties, manufacture
the entire wheel ourselves and are satisfied with a reasonable profit, em
ploy no expensive racers, but depend upon the good common sense ot
the American people to appreciate a good thing when they see it. We
afford to make the price we do, for we expect to sell ten "May woods"
to on3-of anv individual make sold. We simply say that the "Mav-
wood" is a perfect Bicycle, containing more originality and genuine
points of excellence than can be found in all other machines together.
lhe "May wood has successfully passed through the experimen
tal stage. During the past three years we have put out over 5,000
Mavwoods. placed in the hands of riders of all classes and widely
distributed through the country. . Expert riders and clumsy riders,
heavy men and light men, on smooth roads and on rough roads, have
given this wheel every conceivable test, proving it to be the best wheel
