Osteopathy makes few failures in pneumonia cases, especially If the osteopath is given charge while the disease is still, in, its beginnings. Taken early enough, It can some times be aborted, or cut short at Its outset, by Osteopathic treatment; and even when the disease baa full possession of the patient there Is no mot hod of procedure that la so help ful, so full of the promise of good results, as the Osteopathic method. Medical authorities agree that there Is no specific treatment for this disease so that there la little left to be done except to let the disease run Its course, the patient and the bacteria fighting It out to a finish. The patlont has a chance for recovery it he cam but live un til the bacteria are poisoned by the unbalances they discharge. Such is the acknowledged condi tion under medical treatment; but Osteopathy can be ai great deal more helpful. The disease begins with congestion In the blood vessels that go to and come from the lungs bo that, under pressure, liquid that has passed through the walla of the blood vessels Is deposited tu the air spaces of the lungs. This con dition gives th germ of pneumonia, which ,wa nearly all have In our mouths most of the time, a chance to propogate and we have pneu nla. ' The Osteopathic way under auch circumstances la to get, right to work to relieve the congestion with which the trouble began. This can be done by work at the spine, for through nerve centers at the spine A. C. Carpenter High Grade Watch Repairer Manufacturing Jeweler Stone Setter and Engraver Old Postoffice Building. Enterprise Oregon both the nerve supply and the blood supply of the lung tlseues are con trolled. It Is here, at the spine, and -also In the adjustments of the rilbs, that the original trouble al ways exists that has caused the con gestion; and spinal readjustment Is sure to result In improved condi tions. This distinctively Osteopathic treatment always multiplies the chances of recovery; and the Oste opath, of course, uses all reason able auxiliary methods that have been proven of value. Pneumonia loses many of its terrors when the treatment applied Is Osteopathic Right Way. GROCERYMEN) TALK?

Lands not either wholly or in part covered with timber or under growth, which are located above tim ber line within the Forest bounda ry or In small bodies scattered through the Forest, making elimina tion Impracticable, or limited areas which are necessarily Included for a proper administrative boundary line, should be retained within the Nation al Forests. 4. Lands net either wholly or in part covered with, 'timber or under growth, except as provided for in the preceding paragraphs, upon which it Is not expected to grow trees, should be eliminated from the National Forests. (Signed) James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture, and R. A, BalUnger, Secretary of th Interior. A definition of the lines along which action should be taken was called for by the fact that reports and maps are now in possession of the Department of Agriculture which show the character of the lands and the cover along the lines of the National Forest boundaries. The purpose of the department in secur ing the Information was to make possible a correction of the bound aries on the principles now approv ed by the President, for It has nev er been intended that the National Forests should Include agricultural land or erasing land not suitable for forest purposes. Plans for gath ering the data were drawn up un der Secretary Wilson's direction year ago, and Instruction for go ing over the 60.000 miles of boun daries were Issued to the Nation al Forest officers last .May. As a result the boundaries can now be more carefully corrected than has ever before been possible. On the whole the changes, which are found to be called for are of relatively minor Importance, but in their aggregate they open to settle ment a large amount of land. The application of the rules which the President has approved will mean the early restoration to the public domain of 4,000,000 acres or more of National forest land. This Is some thing over 2 per cent of the total National Forest, area. Three-tenths of the forests have yet to be, mapped. Bloodhounds to Halt an Uprising. Storm swept Jamaica was in 1738 the scene of a rising of the negro plantation slaves. At first there were brushes between the soldiers of the island garrison and the insurgents, and lives were lost ou both sides. Then the commander, General Walpole, be thought him of having 100 dogs trained to track slaves brought from Cuba. These powerful and savage brutes, misnamed bloodhounds, were really of the mastiff tribe, says the Loudon Chronicle. After being muzzled they were led to the position taken up by the malcontents. General Walpole sent a message to the slaves threaten ing to unmuzzle and unleash the ani mals If they did not surrender. The negroes, who had shown themselves to be by no means afraid of the bul lets of the military, were now mad with terror. They threw down their arms and gave in. Remarks a con temporary historian of Jamaica, "It is pleasing to observe that not a drop of blood was spilled after the dogs ar rived in the island." Finding His Bride. In one pnrt of the canton of Tlclno, In Switzerland, a very quaint marriage ceremony prevails. The bridegroom dresses in his "Sunday best" and, ac companied by as many friends and rel atives as he can muster for the fete, goes to claim his bride.- Finding the door locked, he demands admittance. The inmates ask him his business, and In reply be solicits the hand of his chosen maiden. If bis answer bo deemed satisfactory he is successive ly Introduced to a number of .matrons and maids, some . perhaps deformed and others old and ugly. - Then he 1. presented to some large dolls, nil of which he rejects with scorn, amid gen eral merriment.

Then are his troubles over and his state as a benedict assured. Miles of Them. Lady (In moderu bookstore) I wish to see all of the latest books. Sales man Very well, madam.

"The waistline will come this spring just where It belongs," we are assured by Grace Margaret Gould In the Woman's Home Com panion for March. "The defining of the normal waistline is now a feat ure of the new fashions. About the only exception to this is in the Russian-blouse coats, where oftentimes the loose belt hangs well below the waist. The dresses In Moyen Age effect will at 111 appeal to the popu lar trade, but they are no longer high style. Among the good-looking dresses showing the Moyen Age ef fect are those made of a combina tion of heavy and sheer linen the bodice portion of the heavy linen and the lower plaited skirt portion of sheer linen, la these dresses which are made with a guirape the sleeves and gulmpe are of the same sheer linen as the plaited skirt. "Sashes will be much worn, not only around the normal ,waist, but as a Bklrt trimming, defining a flounce for Instance and tying at the back just above the knees. "The sleeves which were in our new gowns last eprliig, will only be presentable this year after remodel ing. Sleeves are growing shorter and the tendencies are all toward the banishing of the long sleeve for warm weather.

In the new length.. But the majority of the new sleeves end just below the elbow where they are fin ished with a fascinating little under sleeve, frequently ka the form of a very small filmy puff. Sleeves with a cap effect are smart la style and they vary greatly in length, some are not more than two Inches long and others reach halfway down the arm. The little white underaleeve Is most noticeable feature of the new sleeves. Sometime It, protrudes only for a couple of Inches below the upper colored sleeve, both of which re finished with nothing more elab orate than a half -inch hem or a lit tle bias self-facing. The majority of the sleeves are extremely plain and Inconspicuous.
