What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing cases.

During November the editor of this
journal was engaged in institutes and re

moving forward at a most encouraging
pace in educational as well as material
The state is composed of
three distinct parts.
First, there is
Portland and the Willamette valley, the
older settled portion, a region with a
cosmopolitan population similar to that
of the upper Mississippi valley and drawn
largely from it. A variety of crops and
diversified industries are found here;
there are but two seasons, the wet and

roses blooming in great profusion every
where, a warm, gentle rain falling al
most constantly, and this in the lat
itude of St. Paul, was an object lesson in
physical geography not easily forgotten.
The southeastern portion of the state is
wild and rugged, of value chiefly for
grazing; it was settled largely by emigra
tion from Missouri. A saying is current
there that the left wing of Gen. Price's
army did not surrender, but moved on
into Oregon. Traveling in that part of
the state is chiefly by long and arduous
stage routes. The Columbia basin east

In the matter of high schools, Oregon
is today where Illinois and Wisconsin
were forty years ago ; there are very few
high schools; every town of any consid
erable size has a little college or acad
emy. These are private or denomina
tional schools; in a few of the larger and
more progressive towns these have been
supplanted by the public high school,
but in most places the public high school
is overshadowed and handicapped by the
presence of private institutions.

SEW TAX LAW.
Taxpayer» Should Hecorne Famil
iar with the Proviaioua of
the New Measure.
At the last session of the legislature a
new law was passed in regard to the
collection of taxes, which law took ef
fect on December 1st, 1901, and its sub
stance is as follows:
1. If you pay your taxes on or before
March 15th you will be allowed a rebate
of 3 per cent.
2. If you pay your taxes between
March 15th and up to and including the
first Monday in April, there will not be
any rebate,neither will there be any pen
alty or interest added.
3. If your taxes are not paid on or
before the first Monday in April, they
will become delinquent, when there will
be added a penalty of 10 per cent, and
the tax will also draw interest at the
rate of 12 per cent per annum in addi
tion to the penalty.
4. If you pay one-half of your taxes
on or before the first Monday in April,
then the remaining half may run up to
and including the first Monday in Oc
tober following; but if the last half of
tax due is not paid by the first Monday
in October, it becomes delinquent, and
there will be added to such balance a
penalty of to per cent, and in addition,
such balance will bear interest at the
rate of 12 per cent per annum from the
first Monday in April until paid.
5. On all personal property taxes, if
one-half is not paid on or before the
first Monday in April, the law compels
the sheriff to levy upon and collect the
same after May 1st, hence to prevent a
levy upon personal property after May
tst it will be necessary for one-half to be
paid as above stated.
6 The law compels the sheriff to sell
all lands on which taxes have not been
paid, and that such sales shall not be
held later than March ist of the year
succeeding the year in which the tax
levy is made.
7. The property will be sold to the
person bidding the lowest rate of in-
terest, and certificates will be issued
therefor, and deeds given to such prop-
erty sold, unless redeemed within three
years from the date of such sale.
besered the Vital Chord.
G. L. Pugh, an old man of 72 years,
who had been for six weeks a county
charge in care of Arthur Smith in this
city, took his own life last Saturday
forenoon, by cutting the arteries of his
left arm at the elbow with a pocket
knife. He had made two wounds quite
deep into the arm, and had held it over
a vessel until he was two weak to longer
stand up. He had probably lost a quart
of blood, then fell back on the bed and
continued to bleed for some time. The
knife used was found closed upou a
table near the bed. It was a two-bladed
pocket knife, the smaller blade being
quite sharp, and was the one with which
the work was done. Mrs. Smith was at
tracted by moans from the adjoining
room, and found the man slowly bleed
ing to death. She asked him what was
the matter, and he replied, “I am on my
last legs.” She was aloue with her two
children and old man Fairchilds, an

she hurried to the house of Mr. Noll,
who speedily went for a doctor. Doctor
Goucher reached the house as the man
was dying. He could get no expression
from him. Pugh had removed his coat,
vest and shoes and rolled up his sleeves.
He had been in very feeble health from
stomach trouble during all his residence
here, and was growing worse.
Goucher said he was a very despondent
man. He would call on him for medi
cine, in great distress, and always claim
ing that he was getting worse and as

responded the shepherd boy, coolly.
