raumg uruggisis everywhere are
estamisning new records m tne gale of
medicine. Believing that no medicine
ougut to Da paid for unless it does the
user some good they have adopted the
umii ui seuing ooivax, tne standard
kidney remedy, under a positive guar
antee of quick relief from all kidney or
bladder misery, or money back without
a question. This speaks eloquently for
the virtues of the remedy and already
has created a wide-spread demand for
it here in Salem. Hundreds of peoplo
u every wain or nte nave been re
lieved of the agonies attendant on
weak, disarranged or doirncd-uu kid
neys and bladder by this remarkable
remeuy. it is not ,ust merely a kidney
treatment, it is a medicine that aims to
put the entire, painracked body into
normal condition and give vigorous
health after the many painful disorders
caused directly or indirectly bv sick
kidneys. A change for the better will
be seen after tho first few doses of
Solvax and its continued use should
tone up the entire system of improp
erly working organs and give the de
sire to live and enjoy life to its full
est. Solvax is considered by many the
best kidney remedy on the market to
day because it aims to cure by striking
directly at the cause of all the trouble.
The many pains and aches caused by
improperly working kidneys cannot be
permanently cured unless the cause is
Solvax is sold under a positive guar
antee to refund the money if it does
not cure. This is the strongest proof
that can be offered as to the merit of
the medicine. You are cheating your
self out of your slice of life if yon do
not give Solvax a chance. Get it today
from Daniel J. Fry or any leading
druggist iu this vicinity.

Working Near Stayton
Last Saturday a crew of half a dozen
surveyors arrived in town with instru
ments and grade stakes and have since
been running a line east of town en the
Men. imu road. They havo not followed
any of the old surveys in or out of town.
The only information that can he glean
ed from them is that is a railroad sur
vey which will stop at Mill City until
the mountains arc free from snow, hut
which will eventually go through to
Bend, and also that grading will bo be
gun by the first ot1 May. Further thin
this we have been unable to learn. The
Salem Journal of tho 17th says that a
survevini? nartv started running n line
(from the Oregon Klectric depot south
east irom town.
As Stayton has been favored by mini
eruus paper raino.uis ana " not air
propositions in the past our people are
not muen excited over this survey, but
naturally nre all hopeful that it has
some backing. It is safe to say that
there isn't ft better field between Port
land and Eugene for the Oregon Elec
tric to build n branch than through
Stayton to Mill City, us it would cost
little to build and would be profitable
from the start.
There is a great deal of activity in
railroad circles, and this territory is a
virgin fneld, hence it seems reasonable
to expect this year either a branch of
tho Oregon Electric from Salem or the
