“IT IS SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE."

A SANITARY COMMITTEE.
McMinnville needs water works
and sewerage before anything else.
The health of the people demand
it. Now it is prominent before the
people that something must be done
and that something quick.
thorough inspection of this city by
a sanitary committee is requested
by the majority of the people. The
common council as officers of the
Eeople must see that the public
ealth is preserved. All outhouses
and other germ breeding places
should at once be fumigated and
all care taken to preserve the health
and stop the spreading of all con
Yellow fever has appeared in
Jacksonville, Florida, and it shows
the procrastination of the health
officers of that place. Yellow fever
like nearly all other fevers has been
pronounced by medical men a germ
disease and these germs are brought
into life and activity by filth.
There are now eighteen casts of the
fever in Jacksonville, and this has
at last stirred the health officers
into activity. Monday fifty wagons
were employed in the city gather
ing up garbage which had accumu
lated in the streets, coal tar and
pitch pine trees, have been burnt
and lime strewn in the streets until
the town looks as if a snow storm
had visited it. This is all for the
purpose of destroying the germs of
the fever It would have been far
better if the health officers had
taken these steps before the fever
broke out and thereby saved a pan
ic and a large number of valuable
lives. Now would it not be better
if McMinnville would try and clean
up the town a little before some
dread disease breaks out and car
ries off a number of our citizens.
About this time of the year typhoid
fever generally puts in its appear
ance. This fever is a germ fevor
and the natural abode of a typhoid
germ is in filth of all kinds, impure
water, etc. When there is no filth
there is no fever, and if the citizens
of this place will clean up around
their yards, and burn the garbage,
clean their wells and do all in their
power to prevent disease it is safe
to say that no one will be mourn
ing for a dead brother, sister, father,
mother, who was carried off before
their time by dread typhoid and
the only things by which they know
that these dear friends ever existed
is memorf and the grave on the
CAUGHT AT LAST.
William Rains, alias Raymond,
alias Colby, a Baptist minister,
spiritualist medium, gambler and
train robber for whom officers of
justice have been searching since
1877 has been arrested in San Fran
cisco at 45 Sixth street where he
was playing the rolo of a slab' writ
The officers allege that« in 1872
he robbed a mail car near Austin,
Texas, binding and gagging the
clerk and securing $3000. In 1875,
under the name of Rains, lie held a
successful revival meeting in
Hearns, Texas. While it was in
progress a train was held at the
depot because of an accident, and
the train men attended the revival
services. Rains plead illness and
was not present. The mail car was
robbed of $4000. Rains was arrest
ed, convicted and sentenced to four
years imprisonment for the crime.
In prison he developed all the
symptoms of consumption, and was
finally pardoned by President
Hayes in 1877 and disappeared
completely for a time. Subsequent
ly he appeared as a slate-writing
and materializing medium in New
York and Chicago. Last week de
tectives located him in San Fran
cisco, where they gobbled him. He
has lieen through this county as a
medium and several of the people
of this city remember him.

No ordinary voter, no member of
congress no living man can cast
an intelligent vote for a protective
tariff covering 41,000 articles or 400
articles. No man can know how
much tax on an imported article is
necessary to give the home pro
ducer of that article a reasonable
profit unless he has the knowledge
of an expert with respect to that
article, and no man can be an ex
pert as to a large number of articles.
When Secretary Manning asked
for definite information respecting
cost of production so that he could
from an intelligent opinion as to the
duties necessary to give a fair pro
fit the manufacturers refused to
give it to him. They refuse to give
it to the committees of congress
that frame protective-tariff' bills.
The result is that every member of
those committees who votes for such
a bill has to take at least 99 per
cent, of it on pure trust. The ordi
nary voter has to take 100 per cent,
of it on pure trust. It is simply
impossible for him to cast an intel
ligent ballot for any protective tariff
bill. He can, however, form an in
telligent opinion as to the principle
involved. He can decide whether
it is wise or just to tax the many
industries for the support of the few
—to tax those who are necessarily
exposed to the fiercest foreign com
petition for the benefit of those who
can be shielded by a tariff from
such competition—and take the
chances of making some men enor
mously rich at the expense of those
who are comparatively poor.—

Ol failing health, whether in the form o>
Night Sweat« and Nervousness, or In a
sense of General Weariness and Loss ot

Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting the digestion and assimilation ot
food, restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify

Sarsaparilla, which I did, and lam now
as liealthv and strong as ever.—Mrs.

I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I navo
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to he the best blood medicine
ever compounded.—W. F. Fow|er, M. D.,
