Dallas, Nov. 2. A' movement is on
foot by the Dallas Commercial club to
endeavor to get tne Southern Pacific
railway company to electrify the flour
miles of mail between Gerlingcr anil
this city. The work of stringing the
wires on the west s'de line from Whit
son to Corvallis is progressing rapidly
and the eonstrnction gang have their
headquarters ut Gerlinger. A prominent
railway official let out the information
a short time ago that he believed that
the company, with a little ursuason,
could be induced to run the line on in
to Dallas. If the Commercial club can
succeed in getting this piece of road
electrified it will mean an . electric
train will lay over at noon in this city,
und that a person can leave here at
about 12:30 and reach Portland about
three o'clock; iThe matter" has been
placed in the hands of the railroad com
mittee of the club who are doing their
utmost, to have the line put through
to this city.

BEFORE MEALS-AND HEALTH
All people in America nnd especially
those who are past middle age are prone j
to eat too much meat aud in conse
quence deposit lime-suits in their arter
ies, veins and joints. They often suffer'
from twinges of rheumatism or lumba-j
go, sometimes from gout, swollen hands j
or feet. Such people are not always j
able to exercise sufficiently in the out
door nir or drink enough pure water in j
order to sweat freely nnd excrete im
purities through the skin. Dr. Pierce;
has conducted experiments and thor-j
oughly tested a urie acid solvent at his;
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute
which he is convinced is many times
more potent than lithia this he mimed
"Anuric." It can be had at almost all
druc stores by simply asking for Dr.
Pierce's Anvrie for kidneys or back
ache. t will overcome such conditions
as rheumatism, dropsical swellings, cold
extremities, scalding and burning urine
and sleeplessness due to constant need
of getting out of bed at night.
Our grnidmothers have Iold our
mothers and our mothers have in turn
instructed us that in case of sicklier,
resort to Dr. Pierco's dependable howr
hold prescriptions. These medicines n
put up for sale by druggists have never
been recommended as "cure-nils," h')t
only as superior remedies for certain
common and ensily-recognized diseases.
Hud these medicines been adopted to
ull classes and forms of chrouic, diseases
there would have been no necessity for
organizing a competent staff of expert
physicians and surgeons, to act in ti:e
treatment of difficult, obscure and com
plicated rases of chronic diseases, !
Dr. Pierce's maintains in his Invalid-.'
Hotel and Surgical Institute. Of Irs
liiune remedies the most widely known
are his "Favurite Prescription" fur
womanly troubles and run-down condi
