T he postal deficit during the last
fiscal year was 811,411,779. It is not
an argument in favor of the govern-
went ownership of railroads.
Quite a number of persons to whom
bills for subscription to The Reporter
weie sent during October responded very
promptly. A great many others have
paid no attention to the matter. We dis
like very much to place an account for so
small an amount aa most of these bills
represent in the hands of an attorney,
knowing that it will make additional
coat ; but when it is understood that these
small items aggregate several hundreds
of dollars, it becomes patent that nothing
less can be done. No accounts will be
placed for collection before the 15th of
the present month, and the liberal terms
of settlement will be extended until that
time, as we desire to give every oppor
tunity for amicable and easy settlement,
but after that date the accounts will be
placed in other hands.

A telegram was received Tuesday eve
ning, by E. W. Wallace, secretary of Mc
Minnville camp. Woodmen of the World,
conveying intelligence of the death of E.
J. Esson, a well known citizen of this
place. Something over a year ago Mr.
Esson and family went to Santa Barbara,
Cal., where he has been working at hie
trade of carpentry. It was their inten
tion to return here shortly. From letters
received prior to the telegram announc
ing his death, it appears that he had
been seriously ill for a number of days.
Mr. Esson was a man of medium age,
and was well esteemed in this com
munity, where he had resided for a num
ber of years. The wife and little daugh
ter who mourn the loss of busband and
father, have the heartfelt sympathy of
many friends here.
There is more encouraging outlook for
the improvement of the Yamhill than
when we wrote concerning it one week
ago. For some weeks certain of our citi
zens have been active in the matter and
considerable correspondence with pow
ers that be has passed through the mails.
A telegram has been received by James
McCain, chairman of the republican
committee from Senator McBride, who is
now in Washington, saying that the or
der has been revoked suspending work
on the specifications for tho locks and
dam. In a personal letter referring to
the same matter, Senator McBride ex
presses the opinion that the money ap
propriated is sufficient for the comple
tion of the work ; if not it will be an
easy matter to obtain the necessary
amount additional. Now, we under
stand, as soon as the engineering de
partment completes the specifications, if
it makes no more mistakes, the work of
construction will pe let by contract.

“ When iny baby was two months
old she cried night and day, and
seemed to be in great pain. She had
a discharge from her ears, and the top
of her head broke out in scrofulous
eruptions. The doctor gave me some
thing to stop the discharge and ease
the pain, but. his treatment did not

The republicans have not much to
boast of in the result of Tuesday’s elec

mind, however, that they didn’t expect
much. The first election after a presi
dential victory is the opportunity of indi

When a young
girl steps from
girlhood into wo
manhood, she en
ters a new and strange
country. A land of
promise and hope, yet
full of hidden dangers. Whether she will
find happiness or misery depends largely
upon the health and condition of the deli
cate, special organism which is the source
and centre of her womanhood.
The lives of young women are often
wrecked because of a mistaken sense of
modesty, which leads them to neglect the
earlier symptoms of feminine weakness
These troubles unless corrected, develop
into serious chronic difficulties which be
come a dragging burden, ruining life’s best
opportunities and blighting all possibility
of happy wifehood ana motherhood.
Any woman suffering from these delicate
complaints needs the health-giving power
of Dr Pierce’s Favorite Prescription. It
heals and strengthens the womanly organs;
stops weakening drains; gives vitality to
the nerve-centres, and restores perfect or
ganic soundness and constitutional energy.
It is the only medicine devised for this pur
pose by a skilled and experienced specialist
in diseases of the feminine organism.

Mrs. W. B. Duncan, of Arlington, Mo., writes:
“ I have used your ‘ Favorite Prescription ’ and
am never tired of sounding its praise. When my
lady friends complain, I say ‘ Why don’t you take
Dr Pierce’s Favorite Prescription?’ I told an
awxious mother, whoae daughter (18 years old)
had not been right for five months, about the
medicine, and after the young lady had taken
two-thirds of a bottle ©f ’Favorite Prescription ’
she was all right Slit had been treated by two
of our best doctors.”
