The orga nization of the Willamette Valley Baseball League will be effected next Saturday, April 11, when representatives of the different teams will meet in Eugene for that purpose. The teams to be repre sented in the league are Albany, Eugene, Roseburg and McMinn ville. Plans for the organization of the league are almost complete. Both Albany and Eugene have already begun arrangements for putting teams in the field and Mc Minnville and Roseburg have signi fied their willingness to enter this league. The March number of the Oregon Teachers' Monthly contains a half tone portrait and biographical sketch of each member of the Ore gon Legislature. This journal is steadily growing better as it grows older. It was established in 1897, and is published in Salem. Its growth for several years was very slow, owing to "the fact that so many school journals had failed after a shortexistence. But during the last two yeats the growth has been rapid, until now the journal numbers on its subscription list 2,000 of the most progressive teachers in the state. Considering the fact that there are not many more than three thousand teachers in Oregon, this is a good record. There ought to be a fine array of county exhibits at the Oregon State Fair this "year. The State Fair Board offers $1,300 in premiums for county exhibits, divided as follows: $300 to the first, $250 to second, $200 to third, $150 to fourth, and $100 each to the four next in merit. The county court of Marion county has appropriated $200 towards the expense of pre paring an exhibit from that county. The state com mission for the Lewis and Clark Exposition may duplicate the awards offered by the fair board on condition that so much of the exhibits as it desires b turned over to it for exhibition at the St. Louis Exposition.

The election at Falls City on Monday was closely contested, and resulted in a victory for the element in favor of licensing saloons. The fight was a very close one, how ever, and in many instances the difference in the votes of opposing candidates did not amount to more than one or two either way. The Prohibitionists elected the Mayor, W. H. Milligan, and one Council man, Joseph Trueax, and the Citizens' party captured the re mainder of the ticket. Onehundred and ten votes were cast. The officers elected are: Mayor, W. H. Milligan; councilman-at-large, S. H. Tetherow; auditor, A.N. Robinson; marshal, Warren Wright; councilmen, George Gard ner, A. J. Syron, Zim Hinshaw and Joseph Trueax. Soldiers Subject to Aches and Pains. I Have My Share I Find Relief in Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Fills and Nervine. "I can cheerfully recommend Dr. Miles' Anti-Pun Pills as first-class in every respect They have done wonders for roe. I was a soldier in the late war and am subject to and have my share of the aches and pains from the hardship that usually falls to the lot of the soldiers who saw service.

A number of old comrades m this vicinity who have used Dr. Miles' Restorative Tonic, Nervine and Nerve and Liver Pills speak highly of their virtues in every respect. My health is greatly im proved, thanks to your Restorative Nervine, with the exception of an old wound which troubles me somewhat-" Timothy J. Lynch, 4th Regt. Maryland Vol. Inft, The Dalles, Oregon.

The John Burroughs Society of Portland has, through the generosity of Mrs, Rosa F. Burrell, of that city, two cash prizes to award for knowledge of the native birds of Oregon. These prizes are given yearly to the classes of the highest grade in the elementary schools of the state. The first prize is $12.00, the second $8.00, to be awarded to those who can name the most birds by sight and song, and who write a sufficiently excellent composition on the subject. The relative mark ings for the two examinations will be, upon a scale of 100, 60 per cent for the field test and 40 per cent for the composition test. That is, actual knowledge of the birds will count for more than excellence in composition. The competition is open to the class graduating in February as well as to the class graduating in June. The compositions must be in the hands of the corresponding secretary of the John Burroughs Society, 634 Williams avenue, Port land, Oregon, not later than June 1. Any subject based upon personal observation of our native birds will be acceptable. One particular bird may be selected for study; or some subject as the following may be chosen: "Nests of Oregon Birds," "Feeding Habits of Our Native Birds," "Bird Friends of the Farmer," etc. In all observations time and place should be carefully recorded. The field examinations will be given the last week in May and the first week ih June. All who send compositions will be considered ap plicants for a field examination, and the address of each writer should be enclosed with the com position. Clarence H. Gilbert, President. Mrs. Lorena Jane Weaver, of 88 Briggs Avenue, Buffalo, New York, seeks for information that will lead to the whereabouts of her brother, Martin Leroy Fries, who left his home for the West twenty-three years ago. When last heard from he was employed in a lead smelter in Erie, Weld county, Colorado. If still living, he was 48 years old last September; has light com plexion, very light blue eyes, and is 5 feet, 7 or 8 inches tall. It is thought that he may possibly be working in some mine in Western Oregon. Declamation Contest of Dallas Public School.

After paying the ex penses, the remainder will be spent for books for the Public School Library. All are cordially invited to attend. W. I. Reynolds, ' Principal. High Pressure Days. Men and women alike have to work incessantly with brain and hand to hold their own nowadays. Never were the demands of business, the wants of the family, the re quirements of society, more numer ous. The first effect of the praise worthy effort to keep up with all these things is commonly 6een in a weakened or debilitated condition of the nervous system, which re sults in dyspepsia, defective nutri tion of both body and brain, and in Ths Beit Prescription for Malaria Chills and Fever U a bottle of Grove's Tasteless Chill TorJc It la simply Iron and quinine in a tasteless form.

It is clearly seen that what ia needed is what will sustain the system, give vigor and tone to the nerves, and keep the digestive and assimilative functions healthy and active. From personal knowl edge, we can recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla for this purpose. It acts on all the vital organs, builds up the whole system, and fits men and women for these high-pressure days. A Sweet Breath. is a never failing sign of a healthy stomach. When the breath is bad the stomach is out of order. There is no remedy in the world equal to Kodol Dyspepsia Cure for curing indigestion, dyspepeia and all stomach disorders. Mrs. Mary S. Crick, of White Plains, Ky., writes: "I have been a dyspeptic for years tried all kinds of remedies but continued to grow worse. By the use of Kodol I began to improve at once, and after taking a few bottles am fully restored in weight, health and strength and can cat whatever I like." Kodol digests what you eat and makes the stomach sweet. Belt & Cherrington. The Benefit of Change. We are like house plants: We need a change of soil now and then to be replanted. New scenes, new experiences, new surroundings, a change of climate, dry air instead of moisture, sunshine in , place of cloud. This is sometimes essential to health. There arc conditions near at hand that are better than Europe can offer. Take a month or two in California. Plant your self for a time where there are no irritations, where the hotel is be yond criticism, the landscape pleas ing, and where warm sunny weather invites to walks and drivtJ. Pure and dry air, and the increased electric influences of sunshine are vastly helpful. You can make this trip at very little expense, and enjoy a ride over the scenic Siskiyou and Shasta mountains, which, at this time of the year with their snow-covered peaks, are unsurpassed for their grandeur.
