ficiency lucking only $15.71 of so do
Have paid out during tbe year just
closed $1082.08, toward installing city
water system. This, for spring, sur
veys, plans anil develop work.
After considering these statements
it will be apparent to any one why
no more improvements have been
made on streets during the past year ;
the license fund bad all been expend
ed on streets and other improvements
than the aniouut of $1208.00 refunded
to saloon keepers bad to be takou from
the fund rained by taxation, thus
leaving the city witohut money to
make uocessary improvements.
And aguiu this year on acoouut of
the heavy expense necessary to install
tbe sewer syutem the city council
thought it wise to make the tax levy
as low as possible, therefore wo will
have only enough to barely pay In
debteiluess, leaving nothing for im
provements during the ensuing year,
under these conditions the most rigid
economy will be necessary to keep
within the limit of authorized indebt
edness, hence I have but few reo
onimeudations to m'tke, but will reo
ommond that the hoalth committee
insist on the cleaning up of back
yards; the committee on police see'
that all obstructions are kept out ot
all streuta and that all laws bo strictly
enforced ; that the committee on
streets sue that all moneys appropriat
ed for street improvements be judi
ciously and economically expended;
that tbe judiolary committee at their
earliest couvenleuoe prepare an or
dinance providing for the manaer in
which sewer connections by individ
uals shall be made; that the committee
on lire aud water see that all laws and
rules governing the building of chim
neys on nil houses and the erecting of
fire proof buildings within tire limits
be strictly enforced,
So long as 1 am Mayor I shall try
to havo (all the improvements made
that can do wiiii tne minis provided,
but will not during my term consent
to plunging the city into debt.

An Eastern Journal has recently
noted the fact that since the more
treueral adoption of nleotrto light in

Millionaire's Poor Stomach.
The worn-out stomach of the over-ted
millionaire is often paraded iu the pub
lie prints as a horrible example of the
evils attendant on the possesion of great
wealth. Hut millionaires are not the
only oncB alllicted with bad stomachs,
Tho proportion Is tar greater among tbe
toilers. L'yspcpfta and Indigestion are
rampant among these people, and they
suffer far worce tortures than the mil
lionaire uiiIchs they avail themselves of
a standard medicine like Ureen's An
gust Flower, w hich has been a favorite
household remedy for all stomach trou
blester over thirty-five years. August
flower rou-es the torpid liver, thus cre
ating appetite aud insuring perfect di-
ueslion. Jt tones and vitalises the en

Ought to be Happy.
We do not believe any Hood Ktver
fruit grower begrudged Mr. Asa Hola
day of Scappoose the two cups he
captured at tbe lata meeting of tbe
Oregon Htate Horticultural society.
There have beeu a number of ocoa
sious in tbe past wbe I Mr. Holaday
was the only person who made a fruit
exhibit at the annual meetings of the
state society. He deserves the cups
aud everybody is pleased that be got
tnem. Hood Kiver carried oil enough
of the cups to make any ordinary
community more than happy. Rural
Indigestion is easily overcome by the
use of Kodol Pyspepaia Cure, because
this remedy digests what you eat and
gives tbe stomach a rest allows it to
recuperate and grow strong again.
Kodol relieves Indigestion, llelching of
lias hour Momnch, Heart-liurn. etc.,
and enables tbedigestiveorgans to trans-
lorm all loods into the kind ot rich red
blood that makes health and strength.

SUPERSTITION IN INDIA..
Beliefs of Kafir Hlmdooa Wblch Fa
kirs Tarsi t Profrt.
Borne few years ago ft man whom I
know bought an estate near a town of
some size, aud Immediately on bis talc
ing possession was surprised to find
that be bad also taken on a Strang
responsibility. At the side of the road
before bis place was a gigantic peepul
tree, such as the natives believe become
the residents of departed spirits In great
numbers. This is a Mohammedan
as well as a Brahman superstition.
The tree wag in charge of a rascally
old faktr, who was systematically ex
torting a fine revenue from tbe people
of the community by various devices,
principally ventrlloqulal conversations
of departed ones with their friends.
He bad a hut at the baso of the tree.
The protruding limbs almost blocked
the roadway and were a great nui
sance, and the nightly noises about the
fakir's hat were a great annoyance to
the new owner of the property. He
stoad It as long as be could, and whea
one day another fakir, who was also
a ventriloquist and bad a highly trained
monkey, came by he promised him
handsome fee to rid him of the faklt
of tbe tree. As long as tbe fakir was
there to prophesy what dreadful things
would happen If one branch of tbe
tree was cut or broken any attempt to
clear tbe readway would mean a na
tive revolt "
The second fakir secretly watched
the operations of tbe first for a day or
two and discovered that the worship
ers who came brought gifts of food,
money and jewels to lay before thi
peer of the tree, the spirit In charge ot
their friends' spirits. The worsbiperl
wore then sent to the river to wash in
a certain way by the old fakir and hi
returned to the seclusion of his hut.
When the worshipers returned they
found him still In tbe but, but the gifts
were all gone, consumed by the peei
of the tree, the fakir said. As a mat
ter of fact he had stolen out and got
Tbe second fakir ascended into tb
tree the third day and posted tbe
monkey, so that tie Instant the old
fakir's back wa turned the monkey
conld swing by his tail and gather
up all the gifts. This was done many
times till the old fakir was completely
mystified and nearly frantic over lils
losses. Having secured a large -quantity
of booty, tfce second fuklr tool,
tbe next step In his plan. lie sent
the monkey aloft on a btr.nch of the
tree that wn.i in plain sight, and when
a company of wealthy nnd influential
worshipers gathered to converse with,
their dead the rocond fakir, by hit
Ventriloquism, ti ide bis monkey do
bounce tbe old fakir, making him a
laughing stock before the people. Tut
old man flew into a rage, which was a
certain sign that he was not holy, and
at that moment tbe owner ot the place
appeared with an ax to clear away
the limbs. The old fakir told him the
peer would strike him dead If he
touched a twig, but the house owner
broke off a handful, and when he was
not killed and returned to the people
hundreds of rupees' worth of gifts they
had given the old fuklr, the people
drove the old man from the district
and allowed the bouse owner to do ns

theirs which be gleefully and with
