and he same is true of the California
crop and all of a sudden it was dis
covered there was a shortage in onions.
In Oregon it is said there is but 25
car loads. Hence within tho past week
the market price wholesale, has jump
ed from $1.50 a bushel up to $3.75 and
$4 a bushel. With this high price, mar
ket men predict that the consumption
of onions will toe materially reduced.

The state legislature passed a law that
required county assessors to secure all

that the fruit interests as well as berry

While there la considerable talk now
adays about tho salaries of stato offi
cials and .tho attempt of tho lato legis
lature to boost the income of several
stato officials, it might be well to
hark back to tlie- time when the state
eonsitution was adopted in 1859. At
that distant day $1500 a year was con
sidered enough fur a governor. $1500
a year for tho secretary of stato and
tho stato treasurer was held in such
low estCKSm that ho was givon only $800
a year. But th? early legislators felt
more lifbernl -towards the supremo
judges and put them on tho pay roll
at, an annual salary of $2000 a year.
Tho supreme judges are yet the high
est paid state officials es they are now
allowed $5250 ft year, the governor
$5000 and the secrotary of etato and
state treasurer ench $4500 a year. Unit
ed Btates senators and representatives
in congress are each paid $7500 a year.
An Appeal For Your Children
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember the physic that mother insisted on castor
oil, salts or cathartics.
How you hated them. How you fought them. IIomj
you dreaded their after-effects.
That was all wrong, but then nobody knew better.
iWith our children it's different.
The day of harsh physics is over.
IWe don't force the bowels now ; we coax them, )
iWe have no dreaded after-effects.
'And the dose is a candy tablet. "
Mothers who cling to the old form of physic simply
(don't know what they do.
The children's revolt isi Well-founded.
Their tender bowels are harmed by them.
The modern way is to give a gentle laxative mora1
frequently. To keep the bowels always active.
The best method is Cascarcts. .
Cascarets are candy tablets. , -
Children love their pleasant taste.
They cost only 10 cents a box, with full "directions
lor children's dosage at all ages. Babies tool
Jive Cascarets, then don't worry they never disappoint.
