In Monmouth Improving
Monmouth, Or, Jan. 21. (Capital
Journal Bpeeial Service.) The influ
euza situation in Monmouth is improv
ing, there being no new eases within
the past week. About forty eases re
sulted front the high school exposure
but ther have all been light and are
practically recovered. One ease has de
veloped among the Normal students but
is now convalescent. Strict quarantine
regulations were put in force last week
and it is thought the epidemic is well
under control. The High and Training
schools did not open Monday morning
and probably will not until next week.
The raral centers are all in session ex-
eept Mountain View, but no student
teachers are being used at these places
as an extra-precaution against spread'
ing the flue.
(Superintendent Todd of the Salein
schools and Acting Superintendent
Grout of the Portland schools visited
the Normal recently for the purpose of
securing teachers to supply vacancies in
their district. Among the February
seniors who have already been placed
are Miss McAllister, . Corvallis: the
Misses Maison and Dugan. Portland:
Miss Ethel Calkins, elub supervisor of
Multnomah county; the Misses Mar

The particular work of this committee
is to aid returned soldiers to readjust

Miss Myra Butler, former head of the
domestic science department at the
Normal, now doing canteen work in
France, writes that eho does not expect
to return to the United States for some

A trnclogy occurred last Thursday a
few miles south of Monmouth on the
farm of Lena Brown. The bodies of
Lena Brown end Mr. M. C. Spores were
found Saturday morning lying fn the
kitchen of the farmhouse. Both had
been shot through the heart. A note,
written by the man, stated that he
killed Miss Brown because she had
promised to marry him and then had
turned him down for a former sweet
heart, a soldier who had just recently
returned from England. Mr. Spores, it
is understood, had a family in Port
land but was expecting his divorce
soon. He was 40 years old and had
rented a farm adjoining that of the
girl's. Miss Brown was a daughter of
Mrs, Lris Marks and a sister of Mrs.
Oeorgo Jones, who live near. She was
about 30 years old and has for several
years lived alone on her farm, doing
the greater port of the work herself.
The bodies were removed to Dallas Sat

At the rocent moeting of the city
council tho re-elected mayor, O. A,
Wolvcvton, was inaugurated and the
new-old council was organised, only one
change having been mudo in the mem
bership. Committees were appointed to
carry out the work of the different de
partments of the affairs of the city for
tho yenr and the usual business mat
ters were attended to.
The mayor's aunuul report shows
that tho eiDcnses of the city have ex
ceoded the recoipts or income only
about 100. Considering the unusual
expenses incident to a bad year and
war conditions, this is considered c-
small deficit, and the main reason for
this was the expense of tao lawsuit tne
city had against the paving company,
which cost the city auoui -iu. anp
mayor recommends however that, to in
sure ample funds for the accomodation
of the growing needs of the city, a
ha-rtor amendment be placed ocrore ino
peoplo for adoption for the purpose of
creating a reserve fund. A gravity
water system is contemplated for the
city as "the present source has proved
at times to be inadequate.

The severe wind which prevailed for

San Francisco Man Gains 22
Pounds By Taking
"I have already gained twenty two
pounds since I began taking Tanlae
and my old time strength and energy
has come back to me," said J. A.
Greer of 417 Lyon St., San Francis
co, recently. Mr. Greer, who is a valued
employe of the Universal Electric &
Uas company, has been a resident of
San Francisco for more than forty
years and is highly respected by all
who know aim.
"I (haven't gotten all my lost weight
back yet," he continued, " for I had
dropped off forty seven pounds on ac
count of bad health, but I am still
picking up and expect soon to tip the
oeam at my old weight, whicn is two
hundred pounds, or better. My troubles
began years ago, with catarrh of the
head, and I evidently swallowed the
mucus that accumulated in my throat
during my sleep at night, as I would
get np in the mornings feeling nauseat
ed and would cough and gag for hours,
trying to rid myself of this mucus.
Finally, aout two and a half years
igo, my stomach legan 'bothering me,
which started ly gas forming on my
stomach and a burning sensation all
the way up to my throat. I soon got to

Lout pleating terribly and suffering
intense pain in the pit of my stomach.
I not only had pains after eating, but
would become dreadfully nauseated and
finally I just had to give up meats and
everything else except milk and the
very lightest of foods. I was also bad
ly constipated and my back, just over
my kidneys, hurt me a great deal and
my condition kept getting worse.
"I now believe that it was catarrh
that caused my stomach trouble and
gave me that nauseated feeling all the
time, for since 1 have been taking Tan
lae I haven 't suffered that way at all.
My head and throat are not stopped
np like they were and I don't cough
and gag now at all. And my very tirst
Dottle of Tanlae relieved me of the
gas, bloating and pains, and in almost
no time I was eating just about any
thing I wanted. L have meats every
day now in fact, nothing is barred
from my bill of fare and you may
know my food agrees with me or I
would not be picking up so rapidly in
weight. My stomach seems to digest
just anything and I am making up for
lost time by eating three rousing meals
a day. I never notice the catarrhal
trouble any more, have also been re
lieved of constipation and every night
is a good one for me, a I sleep, like
