Dr. Mary Walker says that the
wholesale use of onions will pre
vent such dreaded diseases as
small pox. She advises that the
lawns he covered with them, the
Htroota and back yards of homes.
She tells us that we can make
ourselves immune by boiling
thorn, frying them and eating
thorn and by living in an atmos
phere where their fragrant aro
ma is ascending to high heaven.
If the germs of the small pox and
other diseases have a sense of
smell, wo are sure that Dr. Walk
er is correct.
We arc indebted to Attorney
George J. Perkins for giving us
the straight of it regarding Wil
lamette boulevard. More than
any other man, he is conversant
with the facte in the case, and
presents them in a manner that
can easily be understood and ap
preciated. Hy reading his state
ments on the first page of this
issue it will readily be seen that
no satisfactory understanding is
likely to bo arrived at until the
Supreme Court has passed judg
ment upon it. We were given to
understand by several ol Hie
property owners that the width
had been satisfactorily settled,
but this seems to have been a
mistake. In the past two years
two important ease from St.
Johns have gone through the
circuit courts. In one instance
the presiding judge did not know
the law of the state, and in the
other he refused to hear argu
ment. One cannot uile under
stand what circuit judges are for
anyway, and why ft is necessary
to incur the expense of a circuit
court trial to reach the supreme
court for an intelligent decision.

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is tho most suitable for homos,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in anyplace, thus affording any
desired distribution or light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
