Secretary Wilson says: "One of the objects of the law is to inform the consumer of the presence of certain harmful drugs in medicines." The law requires that the amount of chlo roform, opium, morphine and other habit forming drugs be stated on the label of each bottle. The manufac turers of Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy have always claimed that their remedy did not contain any of these drugs, and the truth of this claim is now fully proven, as no mention of them is made on the label. This rem edy is not only one of the safest, but one of the best in use for coughs and colds. Its value has been proven be yond question during the many years it ha- beers in gener 1 use.

CAUSE District Court Resumes after the Holi day Vacation—In Spooner Case the Jury Finds for Defendant. J. P. Rogers, better known "Pearley" Rogers, was taken Warm Springs this morning Sheriff Ward to be committed the state asylum for the as to by to insane. He was tried in district court Monday evening by a commission consisting of Judge Myers, Dr. McGrath and Dr. Owens, and this action was ordered. Several witnesses were examined, but Rogers' own testimony, in which he told of strange illusions, convinced the commission of his insanity. He was arrested last week for vagrancy and was taken from jail to testify in his own behalf. Rogers was once a prominent busi ness man of Hamilton and was widely popular. With the establishment of the A. C. M. Co. store he became man ager of the clothing department, serv ing efficiently in that capacity. Later he engaged in business for himself, but becoming a victim of alcoholic ex cesses, failed. He was regarded a good salesman, however, and several times secured desirable positions, los ing them as he subordinated business to drinking. He was at one time head of the local Masonic lodge. Of late years he has worked in the logging camps and at odd jobs, being an inmate of the city jail much of the time when not employed. His jail sentences for vagrancy the past few years, if totaled up, would equal many months. He quickly became a com mon "moocher." Exposure and ex cessive drinking gradually weakened his mental faculties. During his last incarceration he was solaced by the illusion that the jail was a hotel which he could enter or leave at will and himself its guest. District court convened Mouday and listened to the case of W. B. Spooner, as administrator, vs. Stella Spooner, involving the ownership of land. The jury found for the defend ant. In the case of the Missoula Lumber Co. vs. Gus Gorus, debt, the plaintiff filed an affidavit that Judge Myers and Judge Webster were disqualified to try the case. A change of venue will be taken. Court, therefore, ad journed until tomorrow, when the case of Geo. O. Shoemaker vs. J. C Edwards, replevin, will be heard, Real Estate Transfer*.
