Barclay, R.F.D.,G"ranite ville, Vt. No other medicine for woman's ills has received such wide-spread and un qualified endorsement. 5s o other med icine we know of has such a record of cures of female ills as has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. For more than 30 years it has lie en curing female complaints such as inflammation, ulceration, local weak nesses, fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic pains, backache, indigestion and nervous prostration, and it is unequalled for carrying women safely through the period of change of life. It costs but little to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and, as Mrs. Barclay says, it is "worth moun tains of gold " to sintering women. Meetings st Church. The sermon at Marvin M.

WARM SUNSHINE OF EASTER SUNDAY BROUGHT GLAD RAGS OUT IN ABUNDANCE. Millinery Formed Greatest Part Passing Show But Suits and Gowns Were There Too. Although the weather man gave rather too much of a cloudy mixture vesterdav morning, the sun peeped from behind the threatening rain-producers yesterday about church time, and um brellas found no part in the celebra tion of Easter, 1909. Everybody and his wife donned their "glad rags" as soon as indications of a sunny day were given and all day the streets were thronged with those who were getting accustomed to a new hat or breaking in a pair of the latest style "kicks. The "passing show" was up to the standard in all respcicts, and even the poor, broken-pooket-booked married man almost forgot his woes and dim inished bank account, in the splendor of the surroundings. Now that the- worst is over and time for an inventory is given it is easily seen that the past season of Easter preparation has been a busy one for all the stores. The sale of suits has been large. Some of the suits have been the same, and addi tional help has had to be engaged for the alteration department. Almost every suit and hat bought in the week preceding Easter, was ordered to be delivered Saturday evening that the owner might be assured of its posses sion for 'Voming out day." And the clerks promised that they would be delivered on time sure, ajid thanks to their labors very few of Walla Wallas lad es were disappointed. Neverthe less, there were many anxious and nervous women Saturday night who feared their new things would fail to arrive in time. Tailors report that business in their lice has been good the past month, and fitting and pressing suits has oc cupied every spare moment of time. Saturday night wag the busiest of all, for excited customers were demanding their suits and delaying things by their importunities for haste. In the ready-made clothing stores, trade pre vious to Easter was brisk MORE THAN PLEASED THE SALE OF LAST WEEK WAS BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS IN FRANKLAND ADDITION, NOTWITHSTAND ING TWO DAYS OF BAD WEATHER, AND WE LOOK FOR A HEAVY SALE OF LOT'S THIS WEEK. THE BUYERS, TOO, ARE ACQUAINTED WITH VALUES AND HERE SEE AN OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST THEIR MONEY TO A GREATER GAIN THAN IN ANY OTHER PORTION OF WALLA WALLA TODAY. THE REASON IS PLAIN, THE CONDITIONS ARE IDEAL AND But It was the milliners who did the land office business. Styles this year are a "fright." Even this is admitted by the women themselves. There doesn't seem to be any set style for hats, for they are all sizes and shapes, from an inverted barrel to a cart wheel, and they cost $$$$. In one of Wh.lla Walla's stores which the re porter visited Saturday he discovered a woman demonstrating how to "do up" hair. The demonstration consist ed of making a foundation of false hair and then tacking on several phony curls attached to hairpins. An outfit costs about ?4, and after a woman has purchased an equipment, she finds that it takes her an hour or two to get the same effect as the demonstrator, who says "it's easy when you know how." In short there was nothing 1 lacking in Walla Walla to make yesterday the most complete Easter ever. Luncheon Tomorrow. C. H. O'Neil, of Prescott, will speak at the weekly luncheon of 'the Com mercial club on the subject, "Walla Walla County's Exhibit at the A.-Y.- P." Processor H. B. Wight, who has been in charge of the preparation of frril; ' r display purposes, will also make a short talk. W. G. Souther, publicity agent, will give some of the details of the movement to elate. RISKS HER LIFE TO SAVE LITTLE BOY. Mother Wraps Own Dress About Flam ing Son—She Suffers Injuries. ABERDEEN, April 12—At the risk of her own life, Mrs. Reuben Johnson this morning saved the life of her little son, Frank, whose cloth ing had caught fire from a bonfire. In accordance with the general "clean up" prevailing Mrs. Johnson and her children had collected all the rub bish in their neighborhood in the al ley and set fire to it. While she went in the house, after first cautioning the children to be careful, Frank, who had been masquerading as an Indian, ven tured too near the flames and the fringe of his flimsy cotton coat took fire. Hearing her son's screams, the mother rushed to his assistance, disre garding her own danger, she caught up her dress and. wrapping it about the child, extinguished the flames, badly burning and blistering her hands. The boy's hands, neck and face were scorched. Mrs. Johnson regards her own and son's escape from serious in jury as being almost miraculous. Killed His Mother. OSSINING, N. Y., April 12.—Bar nard Carlin, aged 20 years, was electro cuted today in Sing-Sing prison for the murder of his mother on April 8. last year. He killed his because he believed she w r as responsible for him being born with wea keyes. Here on Business. J. R.

Claims .Cecil Is Hidden in the Moun- tains of Idaho Not More Than 200 Miles From Here. Although a resident of Tacoma, who has just returned to his home from a visit in Idaho, claims to have certain knowledge as to the whereabouts of Cecil Brittan, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. N. Brittan, who disappeared from Toll Gate three years ago, the anxious par ents have received no information re garding the discovery and are waiting for a letter the Tac-oman which may restore to them their longlost son. Hope that the new clue to the whereabouts of Cecil will this time prove to be right and that the child will be recovered is high in the breasts of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Brittain, of this city. Through a news dispatch from Tacoma last night they heard that their boy has been definitely lo cated. Whether the dispatch is merely an other fal3e report, Mr. and Mrs. Brit tain at this time do not know. Ac cording to the meagre word obtainable the boy is now in the care of an old woman in Idaho, who presumably was not connected with the youth's d's-' appearance. The place where the boy is now sup posed to be is only 200 miles from this city. Cecil Brittain, when he mysterious ly disappeared from the home of his parents at the toll gate, 18 miles south of town, was four years old. Never since the day he was first missing has the least trace of him been found, though clue after clue has been fol lowed to the end. It has always been the belief of the parents, who ever clung to the hope that some day their child would be restored to them, that the boy was kidnapped. Others have believed that the lad wandered away from home and perished in the mountains. The ory after theory has been advanced, and detectives and police authorities in nearly every city in the country have lent their efforts to locate th< child, but to no avail. The last previous clue run down was when James Breen, a convict now serving a term in the penitentiary here, informed the authorities that he knew where the Brittain boy was held a captive. On his promise to find the youth he was granted a conditional pardon and accompanied by Mr. Brit tain went into the mountains 'n search of the child. He claimed the boy was held by horse Breen's claims to knowledge of the boy's whereabouts, however, proved to be only lies, and after several weeks of hunting about the country, with the search extending even into Idaho, the quest was abandoned and Breen was sent hack to the penitentiary. Has Heard Nothing. "I have heard nothing from the Ta coma man," said Mr. Brittan this morn ing, "and know no more about the dis covery than was contained in t this morning's paper. lam expecting a let ter from the Tacoma man, but s6 far hava not had a line from him. I can not tell just what I will do until I have been given the particulars, and can de termine the authenticity of the an nouncement." DAIRY INSTRUCTOR WILL GIVE LECTURE L. W. Hanson Will Speak in Congre gational Church on Relation of Milk to Public Health. L. W. Hanson, state dairy instruc tor. will deliver an illustrated lecture in the Congregational church tonight at 8:30 o'clock on the subject, "The Relation of Milk to the Public Health." This is the second lecture in the ser ies given under the auspices of the health movement inaugurated by the Men's club of the First Congregational church. That conditions in -Walla Walla are not positively bad is indicated by the last report of the milk inspector, wherein he rates the various dairies of the valley. Most of them are rated fair, but some have been rated poor, and others very poor, which indicates that some impure milk is coming into the city. Mr. Hanson is a graduate of the department of dairying at the Wash ington state coll|?e, a*id also of the same department of the University of Wisconsin. He has under him an ef ficient staff of college trained men who are giving their time to the food in_ spection and instruction. The public cannot afTord to miss this opportunity to become intelligent on the milk ques tion. inasmuch as it is so vitally re lated to the city health. Refuse to Cough Up. SPOKANE, April 12.—The Great Northern began a light on salary loan sharks by refusing to pay the assign ment of wages made by F. W. Lam bert, an employe, to the Standard Loan company. The railroad, answering the loan company's suit, declares the claim is based on usury and demand a ruling by the court. The railroad says it must protect its employes. Return From California. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. McGhee returned Sunday from a three months' trip to California and points in Oregon and Washington. Most of the time was spent in Los Angeles.
