Jinny receptions have been planned,

Washington has often noted with
complimentary phrases the brlde'a

distinctively and becomingly. Back of
this ability lies a talent cultivated In
the girlhood days. Money was not

the trace of a very eventful year was
written unmistakably Into his face and
physique. Kspoclally did he show the
stress and travail which lie has nnder
Kono during the last five yeara. To
day, apparently without a care In the
world, he looks less than fifty. His air
of austere reserve has welted away,
ud he Is all graclousness. Nobody can
doubt that under the Influence of tho
simple, gracious, companionable wo

Twenty-flvo years ago in Wylhevllle,
Vs., the new first lady as n girl In her
teens developed a great reputation In
the large family connection for her
ability to buy, to cut out, to tit and to
make up divers frocks for divers occa

Not less Is she considerate of tho aged.
Many Instances of her looking up the

ed. Tho mother of a young eqnthorn
woman employed lu ono of the govern

So nlso Is the president, who himself

(From the Pacific, Cosst Manu
facturer.) As a result of numerous conferences
over the 0. & C. laud grant of 2,3(10,000
ares, the state bids fair to lose its $2,
000,000 delinquent taxes and get no set
tlers on the land.
The lawyers prefer litigation to set
tlement, and new suits have been start
ed, and the politicians prefer to let it
be known that they are ferninst cor-
lot norations in Dereference to iustice.
In place of unraveling the tangle and
getting revenues for the state and set
tlers on the laud that can he settled,
demagogs keep howling for snles at
$2.50 per aero.
In tho meantime, suits have been
started to collect delinquent taxes in
Douglas county where tho sume lands
have been assessed at $14 per aero.
Some office-seekers care nothing for
the essential dishonesty of a proposi
tion, when the state and the counties
have been taking these lands at $10 to
$15 nn acre to demand sale at $2.o0 an

in Douglas county when the state and
the federal courts say they hnvo only

the politicians have promised their

lu addition the state of Oregon runs
two other dangers tliut the ruilroad
company defaults in payment of taxes
and bids in the land grunt, thus getting
a rinul title.
No ono else would have the two mil
lion dollars to put up for the delinquent
taxes, winch with costs would amount
to half a million dollars additional.
Finally the state stands to lose the
property for taxable purposes by action
of congress turning it into the forest
reserves as urged by the forestry officials.
The best advice is-don't neglect matters. Take
prompt and proper care at the start of a bilious at
tack, a sick headache, indigestion, a feeling of lassi
tude or depression, if you want to keep well, strong
and happy. None of these complaints is serious in
itself, but may bejn what it brings about Neglect
