Alas I women do

often cannot telhbut
we know there is
one great cause, and
that is weakness.
The headaches, the
depressed feelings, the pains, the
discouragements, indeed, almost
X all the misery has a common
t cause weakness. At such times
a woman always needs a friend
that can be relied upon, and such
a friend, for more than twenty
years, has been that greatest of all

It is not the best watchdog that barks the
most. . The old watchdog lays low and
seizes the burglar before he knows it. In
the treatment of rheumatism many suf
ferers talk too much and do too little. If
they want to find out what is best for it,
let them get St. Jacobs Oil and use it. It
is a good watchdog against the intrusion
of pain. It goes to work quickly and sure
ly, and seizes hold of rheumatism for the
purpose of driving it out, and holds on un
til its purpose is accomplished. It is,
therefore, the best remedy, because it takes
the best means to accomplish its end, as
many who have suffered for years with the
ailment will testify. The cure is the same
in chronic or inflamatory cases. With pa
tience and a free use of it, the worst cases
of long standing have been finally cured
by it. -

The) Original House Succumbs to the
The last session of the Davis house
of the Oregon legislature was called to
order. at 11:80 A. M. Friday. Seven
teen members answered the roll-call.
U'Ren, by unanimous consent, offered
a resolution which was read.- The
resolution after setting forth the history
of the failure to organize the legisla
ture in a lengthy preamble, concluded
"Eesolved, By the members of the
house now in attendance, and who have
signed this resolution, that we will
return to our respective homes, at all
times during our term of office await
ing the call of the governor of the state
for a session of the legislative assem
bly, hoping that the members may yet
in a legal and constitutional organiza
tion fulfill the pledges, made by their
respective political parties to the people
The following thirty names were
subscribed to the resolution: E. J.
DaviSi Henry 1 Barkley, W. S. U'Ren,
John Gill, J. J. Houser, George W.

that the house, by a rising vote, thank
Speaker Davis "For his firm and fair
rulings as speaker, his close and untir
ing attention to the duties of the office,
his strict adherenoe to the constitution,
his manly and oourageous action in be
half of pure and decent politics and
legislation in our state. " .
The resolution was adopted.
Speaker Davis responded:
"I thank the members of the house

port .given me. In accordance with
the terms of the resolution adopted

The members then dispersed. '
Will Appoint a Senator.
Governor Lord, of Oregon,, in an in
terview, states that he will not call an
extra session of the legislature, as he
thinks it would be of no avail. He
will, however, appoint a United States
senator to succeed John H. Mitchell.
. Confirmed by the Senate.
The United States senate was in ses
sion only about two hours Friday, and
the greater part of the time was spent
in executive session, confirming Presi
dent McKinley's cabinet appointments.
While in executive session, the creden
tials of Mr. Hanna, as senator from
Ohio, to succeed Mr. Sherman, were
presented by Foraker, and he was sworn
in by Vioe-President Hoba't. '
Davis was also designated acting
chairman of the committee on foreign
relations, to succeed Sherman. Beyond
the usual notification to the president,
nothing further was done.
. The House Caucus.
The Republicans of the national
house, anticipating an extra session of
congress, have arranged to hold a cau
cus on the evening of Saturday, March
13. The call was issued by Represent
ative Grosvenor, chairman of the caucus.
The speakership will be decided upon
then. Probably there will be no oppo
sition to Reed. The method of put
ting the tariff bill through the house
and. possibly of organizing committees
may be considered.
Greece Massing Her Troops
Athens, March 8. Feverish activity
continues throughout the whole coun
try. Large quantities of arms, ammu
nition, provisions and military stores
are being conveyed by transports to
Thessaly. The massing of troops on
the frontier is proceeding with the ut
most speed, and public feeling is at the
highest pitch of excitement. Those
taking the coolest view no longer con
ceal their opinion that in the event of
coercion the center of interest will be
transferred to the Turkish frontier,
where the most serious events may be
expected. Many foreign escorts have
already started for Thessaly. Greece
says she will not yield to the demand
of the powers to vacate Crete, even If
she has to fight all Europe.
Fire Fiend's Work.
New York, March 4. A remarkable
series of fires, all of mysterious origin
and strangely similar in their character
istics, spread terror through a section
of the upper East Side yesterday, and
led to the belief that a daring incendi
ary was abroad, applying his torch for
no other purpose, apparently, than the
destruction of human life. ,
Five fires occurred in three hours and
all within the distriot between Sixty
fifth and Eighty -third streets and First
and Third avenues. All were in tenement-houses,
and no one could tell how
the blazes started. Four of the fires,
the most important, occurred almost
within a stone's throw of each other
in a thickly populated area.
The clang of the fire bells and the
sight of engines dashing hither and
thither through the streets naturally
created . a panicky feeling among the
tenement-house dwellers, who knew
not where the fire fiend would strike
next. The firemen were exhausted by
the arduous labor exacted from them. '
One man was killed and his body
cremated; another fatally burned, and
a third badly injured in a wreck, which
occurred at Bennett's Mill, 100 miles
west of St Louis, on the Missouri
Pacific. The dead man Is W. W.
Rosenberger,mail clerk,of Bloomington,
111., single.- The injured are: Edward
Lusman, aged 28, fireman, of St. Louis,
pinned under the tender, body crushed
and cooked from the waist down, will
die; Frank Lauber," engineer, of St
Louis, ribs broken and head hurt.
WEYLER MAKING WAR.
Complete Devastation of Cuba Hit
Ultimate Object. ,
New York, March 10. Sylvester
Scovel, the World's Cuban correspond
ent, in patson at Sancti Spiritus, writes
from his cell under date of March 1:
"Some idea of how Spain is making
war here may be gained from Weyler's
own words. Two weeks . ago this captain-general
of all Cuba had the alder
men of the town and the townspeople
assemble in the publio square. Ad
dressing them, he said:
" 'Last year Gomez and Maceo went
west(i destroying right and left; this
year 1 am coming east to finish what
they left. I am going to make grim
war, and before I get through the coun

"The troops in the town have acted
like, vandals. They are in many in
stances quartered on private families.
Twenty were allotted to the house of a
mulatress of good , repute. I am in
formed that they, horribly abused the
hostess. Although General Weyler has
hitherto sternly prohibited and meroi
lessly punished such atrooities of his
soldiers, they have been rare. Cattle
for this large number of soldiers have
been killed on the public streets and
their entrails left to fester and rot un
der the hot Cuban sun, spreading dis

prevalent At last a Spanish clerk in
a Spanish store pursued one thieving
soldier who had stolen a hat and killed
him. The clerk will, of course, be
shot. He is in jail now.
"All about town the skies are dark
with the smoke of burning property.
Five newly built houses of American
estates at Tuincue, near here, have
been devastated. All the corn was
burned by the troops four days ago.
Farmhouses were, razed to the ground.

I make no mention of the stories of
wholesale slaughter of farmers in the
country around about

A Miner's Nerve.
Baker City, Or., March 10. At
Quartzburg, in Baker county, Theodore
Eby, a miner, was working alone in a
stope in the Gifford mine when a huge
rock fell from the hanging wall and
struck his leg, breaking the leg about
half way between the knee and hip and
pinioning the unfortunate man fast.
Within arm's length of where he stood
was a pick. With this instrument he
pried the rock from his leg and extri
cated himself. There was no assistance
nearer than Mr. Gifford's house, just
below the dump of the tunnel, and the
only person there was Mrs. Gifford, her
husband being absent. There was only
one thing for Ebby to do, and that was
to get himself out the best way pos
sible. The journey ahead of him re
quired almost superhuman effort. He
had to go down on a ladder in a sixty
foot shaft from the stope to the tunnel
which was 800 feet from the entrance.
' He let himself down the shaft by his
hands and on reaching the tunnel
crawled out, all the time suffering the
most intense pain.' On reaching the
dump he called for help and Mrs.
Gifford came to his assistance and
helped him to the house and to his bed.

New York, March 10. The first of a

the board of walking delegates at the
new Columbia college buildings. Over
500 workmen quit The committee
proceeded to other large buildings to

The Battle-Ship Oregon.
San Francisco, March 9. All sorts
of rumors have sprung up on the water
front in regard to the sailing of the
battle-ship Oregon. The reports have
varied greatly, some being that she was
to start next week on a trip to Seattle
to go on drydock. A small sensation
was created today by the river steamer
J. D. Peters going alongside and dis
charging into the Oregon a large cargo
of flour. It was an indication that the
battle-ship is preparing for a long
cruise, and water-front prophets said
that the war vessel was getting ready
for a voyage to Cuba in case of war
with Spain. . The cruiser Philadelphia
has already started toward Cape Horn,
and though report has it that she will
return this way in a few weeks, the
water-front wiseacres believe that only
enough vessels to proteot the Paoifio
coast will be left on this coast.

A Second Experience.
There Will Be No Doubt as i to What
Physicians Will Be Called in Future
By Mrs. Hurlburt.
From the Republican, Fresno, Cal.
An - interesting case comes from
Kingsburg, in Fresno county, Califor
nia. Mrs. Mattie Hurlburt tells , her
own story, and as she is a lady who is
well and favorably known and well
worthy of oredence, it will be found in
teresting: "While I was living in Fresno City
in 1893," Mrs. Hurlburt said, "short
ly after the birth of what was then my
youngest child, I began to lose all
strength and vitality, and was in a very
serious condition. Dr. Hayden of
Fresno, had been attending me, but his
efforts to help me proved unavailing,
and I was gradually growing worse,
though I tried all the doctors and
remedies within reach. One day I
heard of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and I also read an adver
tisement about these pills in a newspa
per, and made up my mind to give
them a trial as a dernier resort. I at
once prooured a supply, and took them
acording to rule until I had used four
boxes. By that time I was so much
improved in every way that I could do
my own housework .and was in exu
berant spirits at my returned health. I
felt "splendidly until one year and a
half ago when another baby was born,
and I was taken just as before, and
brought very low again. ' The attend
ing physician feared that my illness
this time would result seriously, but
he was not able to help me, so I. again
turned to Dr. Williams' remedy,
and after taking two boxes was up
and about my work again. I shall
always keep Pink Pills in my house
from this time on, and shall turn to
to them alone for medical comfort in
the time of illness. (Signed)
