“In my capacity as druggist, in Buffalo, N. Y., I have thebestopportunity
'je of the merits of many different remedies. I am in close touch with the
who come into my store for medicines, and most of them tell me how they
are getting along. Of al! the hun
dreds of preparations which 1 sell,
not a single one begins to give as
much satisfaction as Acker’s Eng
lish Remedy for Coughs, Colds,
Bronchitis, Asthma, Pleurisy and
Consumption. I sell it on a dis
tinct guarantee that it will cure,
or the purchaser's money will be
returned. This is a perfectly safe
guarantee, because the remedy

money returned. Its cures are
nothing short of marvelous. Take
the case of Mr. A. H. Gilbert, for
instance. He lives at No. 5 Carey
street, Buffalo, N. Y. For more
than three years he had a bad
case of asthma, and had been un
able to lie down in bed for nearly
two years. He came to my store
and asked me what to do. I said:
* Take Acker’s English Remedy.’
He said he had tried other reme
dies and didn’t think this would
help him. But he thinks differ
ently now. Three bottles fixed his asthma all right. He could sleep and eat
after taking them, as well as when a boy. He was cured several months ago,
and is well yet, so I am certain his trouble is gone for good. You can write to
Mr. Gilbert himself, if you doubt my word. He will go further than me in prais
ing Acker’s English Remedy." (Signed) S. B. T horne , druggist, Buffalo, N.Y.

Death of .VIre. Brumbark.
Harriet Maria Brumback died at the
college in this city at 11 p. m. Sunday,
Jan. 21st, of pneumonia, after a brief ill
ness. 8he was the mother of Prof. A. M-
Brumback, of the chair of sciences, and
with whom she bad lived in this city the
past three years.
Harriet Maria Graves was born in Sun
derland, Mass., Dec. lOtb, 1833. From
there she removed to Granville, Ohio,
where she completed her education and
was converted to the Christian faith at
the age of 15 years. At this place she
was a teacher for the period of four years,
and in 1856 was married to Prof. J.
Brumback, and with him went to Frank-
land, Ind., where he taught eight years
in a college, until the opening of the civil
war, when the college closed to permit
the young men to enter the volunteer
service. Mr. and Mrs. Brumback after
wards moved to Indianapolis, where he
was admitted to the bar and practiced
until 1866, when he removed to Boise,
Idaho, for the benefit of hie wife’s health.
After practicing his profession for five
years, he abandoned it for the good of
bis own health, and invested in mines,
being now engaged as mining superin
tendent. Another son is living, and re
sides in northern Idaho.
Funeral services were held in the Bap-
list church, Tuesday, at 1 p. m. The
sermon was by Pastor R. W. King from
the text Luke 22:42: “Father, if thou
be willing, remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not my will but thine be
done.” President Boardman assisted in
the service. The attendance was large
Tiie college held no sessions on Monday
and Tuesday, and the Btudents attended
the fuueral in a body, and accompanied
the funeral procession to the train,
which was taken by the husband and
Prof. Brumback and family, who ac
companied the body of deceased to Boise
for interment. The pall bearers were,

Gone Into Bankuptcy,
The Reporter learns with regret that
one of Yamhill county’s best citizens has
been forced to the wall through an uu-
fortunate business venture. The Sheri
dan Sun of last week tells in the follow
ing language why D. W. Ralston of that
place waB forced to take advantage of the
"About eighteen months ago Mr.
Ralston built an expensive fruit dryer at
this place for the purpose of saving the
product of his own orchard and also that

men to whom the fruit was consigned in

season’s output. Since then he has been

ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., NEW YORK.
Want .VIy Photograph,’’
This was the desire of a good many
hearts in McMinnville the past week,
after the town had been canvassed by a
half-dozen representatives of the Rex
Portrait Co. of Chicago. It was the old
“enlarged picture and frame” scheme.
The company had contracted with Wal
lace & Walker to furnish enlarged odo
graphs to each customer w ho would buy
$20 worth of groceries of them, the pic
ture to be furnished when the complete
purchase was made, but the contract did
not specify that customers should take
frames also. The town was hurriedly
canvassed in a day or two, on all sorts
of misrepresentations, such as that the
pictures should be made at once, and
could be secured before the entire $20
had been traded out; that they could be
secured on cash or time purchases, and
it wuold be entirely optional whether
the customer took a frame or not. Near
ly 100 orders were secured, and would
you believe it, that in intelligent Mc
Minnville, this number of people signed
an agreement containing a clause re
questing “Please reserve fur me one of
your magnificent frames," when the de
sire of every one was simply to have the
oilograph? Well, they did it. But
something else occurred the follow ing
day that saved them from these bonds.
The “main guy” of fakirs called at the
grocery in a great hurry to settle up for a
consignment of one hundred frames,
costing $150, just unloaded at the depot,
that be might proceed to the next town.
Mr. Walker was not in so much of a
hurry, as frames had not been nomi
nated in the bond, and informed the
agent that he would be arrested if he at
tempted to leave town under the circum
stances. The misrepresentations made
on the orders taken were beginning to
come to the ears of the grocers. The
manager failed to get a settlement, and
left after a sojourn of a day or two at the

Up to Wednesday, Jan. 24th, the
county clerk’s books showed the follow
ing registration by precincts:
Amity 9, Baker Creek 23, Bellevue 11,
Carlton 10, Checowen 12, Dundee 1,
East Dayton 17, West Dayton 8, Fair

Sheridan 2, Whiteson 5, Willamette 5,
Willamina o, West Chehalem 8, total
257. The last total vote of the county
was 3,323. This leaves about 3,000
voters yet to register in the next 95 days,
or an average of about 30 names a day.
As the limit of time draws to a close the
clerk is likely to need extra help to en
roll the names. The Reporter can see
only one merit about this law in a county
like Yamhill—it will make people fa
miliar with the block or section of land
on which they live and thus improve
their geography. The law was clearly
designed to prevent election frauds in
Portland, and its scope should have
been limited to that city, the only place
where they occur. Our North Yamhill
correspondent points out one of the
objectionable features that will rise
to the surface with aggravating force
a little later on, and lots of people
well entitled to vote are likely to be cut
out through failure to register, as well as
inability to meet the requirements of
the law regarding naturalization pa
pers. The next legislature is likely to
be asked to confine the operations of the
law to Portland, where it belongs.
