OIL ON STREETS
Sulum Is experimenting with oiling
tin- .-tieula to lay the dust, and is well
bHllMiwl Willi Uio letiilLa. ilia Stutes
nitiii KHys :
The udvoratea of an experiment
with oil on the etreeU derlare that
there in no ground for opposition to
it on the Hcoro ot diHHgreeable grnoll
lesultiiiK, or of the oil being tracked
into the LuiidiugB, or dresses being
injured on the crossings. 1'be sug
gestinu U made that the crossinga
should not be oiled, or that the
streets for two or three feet on either
side of the crossings ; also that some
attention should be given to keeping
the main crossings swept, and these
precautious would leave no possibility
of disagreeable experience.
Auotlicr point in favor of extensive
use of oil upon the streets is that it
would destroy all the growth of grass
and weeds, leaving the entire surface
clean, which of itself would add much
to tho beauty of the oity. Witb the
purpose of obtaining direct informa
tion on the subject, a Statesman re
porter interviewed some of the Salem
citizens who have had personal obser
vation of roads and streets where oil
Ueorge W. Johnson, the clothing
merchant, who spent last winter iu
Los Angeles and Long Beach, Cal,
said on the suiect:
"They use a great deal of oil on tbe
streets and roads down there and the
effect is to make good solid roads
without any dust, it forms a tough
flexible surface similar in appearance
to asDhult. so that vehicles run over
it without noise. 1 u tioed iuo com
plaint whatever on account of smell.
Immediately after being put on, 01
for three or tour days, theie is a lia
ility ot adhering to the shoes and be
ing tracked into buildings, but that
liabilitv passes away and there is no
"The character of the soil in that
((iniitrv is a sandy mixture, but I can
not see but the nutuie of our soil
would insure even better results.
There is more body and substance to
our soil and it ought to make a more
compact surface. The country roads
there are all oiled and give tbe best
satisfaction. I think only one appli
cation of oil each year is necessary,
thoiiL'h I am not positive on this
"I did not learn the actual oost of
tbe oiling but am iufoimed that it is
not expensive. I am not informed,
either, of the best arrangements for
applying it. An oiled roadway makes
hard liding for bicyclists. The soft
rubber tire seems to hing to the
springy, tiexbile coating and it is very
dittimilt to "nuiup" with speed.
Hard rubber bugy tires, however, are
nut nilm ted bv it.
"1 believe the oiliug experiment is
worth trying in Salem and that if
tried it would be brought into
.'PTipral use. "
K. (look Puttun. the stationery
chant, who returned a short time
ago from an extended tour of South
ern California. Bald: "by all means
give us oiled streets. From my ob
servation while in Southern Cnflifor-
ii m raion tlv. 1 imiil a treat deal of at
tention to the oil streets there and
they certainly looked goi.d to me.
They bad tbe appearance of asphalt.
1 did not notice any disagreeable
smell, and I rode over places that
were freshly sprinkled. Of course
v.hen tbe oil is first applied, tbe
(streets do look rather sticky, but this
appearance soon becomes changed.
Why, do you know, the Pacific Kloc
tric Railway Co. sp'inkle all of their
out-of-town liues witb oii, and tell
you it's mighty flue for their passen

there's not a bit of dusty atmosphere
to breath. 1 would like to see Snlem

Use Coal For Fuel in Crook County.
If contemplated plana of the Hay
Creek Coal Mine company are not
forestalled bv unforeseen accidents,
Prinevillle's offices and stores will
burn ooal this winter instead of juni
ner cord wood. If these plans can be
carried out. Hay Creek ooal mines
will be a Godsend to the people of
this oity, as coal is always preferable
to wood for otllco fuel.
The matter of auailtv of tbe ooal
has already been settled. Tbe Hay
Creek ooal is so much like the Rock
Snrings. Wyo.. product that tbe two
cannot be told apart except by an ex
pert, tbe seams being exactly tbe same
even to tbe small stratum oi aninra
nite at the base of each vein.. The
Hav Cieek seam is a true bituminous,
of a very cleau texture and about
three feet in thickness. Tbeoompany
has drifted a 100-foot tunnel under
neath the vein, tapping tbe same 1(30
feet from the oronninv. and drifting
an extension of 100 feet, following tbe
vein this t'tne, is now under way. A
larue bunker has beeu competed on
the ground in which several tons are
constantly keot for looal delivery
Farmers come from many miles lound
to pay $3 per ton of coal at the mines
and then haul it themselves to their
homes for their parloi use. Review,
Trust to Nature.
A great many Americans, both mm
and women, are thin, pale and puny, with
nr circulation, because they have 111
ited their stomachs by hasty eating
or too much eating, by consuming alco
holic beverages, or by too close confine
ment to home, office or factory, and in
consequence the stomach must be treated
in a natural way before they can rectify
their earlier mistakes. The muscles in
many such people, in fact In every weary,
thin and thin-blooded person, do their
work with great difficulty. As a result
fatigue comes early, is extreme and taste
long. The demand for nutritive aid Is
ahead of the supply. To insure perfect
health every tissue, bone, nerve and
muscle should take from the blood cer
tain materials and return to It certain
other. It is necessary to prepare the
stomach for the work of taking up from
the food what is necessary to make good,
rich, red blood. We must go to Nature
for the remedy. There were certain
roots known to the Indians of this
country before the advent of the whites
which later came to the knowledge of
the settlers and which are now growing
rapidly in professional favor for the cure
of obstinate stomach and liver troubles.
These are found to be safe and yet cer
tain In their cleansing and invigorating
e fleet upon the stomach, liver and blood.
These are: Golden Seal root. Queen's
root, Stone root, Blocxlroot, Mandrake
i-nnt. Than them la Black Cherry bark.
The medicinal principles residing in these
native roots when extracted with glyc
erine as a solvent make the most reliable
and efficient stomach tonic and liver in
