M. SALISBURY Jeweler and Optician Protection from Rabies. "Avoid strange dogs, but if approached by a dog dripping saliva from his jaws stand per fectly still, since rabid dogs do not notice still objects," says Dr. B. T. Simms, veterinarian at the Oregon Agricultural College. "Animals bitten by rabid dogs should either be killed or given the pasteur treatment If dogs are bitten by other dogs suspect ed of being rabid. They should be closely confined and watched for sixty days. Sick cata, espec ially those having fits, should be avoided. Every person bitten by rabid dogs should take the pasteur treatment, which can be had in nearly every hospital. If the dog is suspected of being rabid, shut it up and watch it closely for symptoms, which will develop in six to ten days. The wound made by a suspected dog should be cauterized at once with nitric acid or carbolic acid. The suspected dog should not be killed until its infection is proved or disproved. If rabid its head should be packed in ice and sent to the State Board of Health ut Portland." Cur of The several celebrations throu ghout the county on the 4th were a success in every particular. In Burns there was a larger crowd than had been expected and those present enjoyed the program in its entirety. There were horse races at the fair grounds on Friday afternoon, also an auto race that proved quite exciting. The forenoon exercises at Tona wama were of a character that appealed to those who attended. The parade didn't come up to former efforts of the kind as there were but few decorated autos in line. The committee offered very liberal prizes for decorated cars but the auto owners were too busy or lazy. The parade was quite interesting, especially one float drawn by two burros that represented a Ford car and in which three pretty little girls were placed. It attracted much attention. The band music was proved very amusing if not ex citing, although there were a few good plays. The married men were up against it in the first inning as their pitcher proved an easy mark for the boys who bat ted him all- over the pasture but they got Hans Nelson and he turned the tables on the boys and had he been able to finish in the box it is quite evident the score would have been kept down to a very respectable figure, but as he gave out the single fellows again made several runs the final footings being 16 to 15 in favor of the married men. The sports on the street at 7 o'clock were spoke of as the best ever pulled of in Burns. The committee had arranged for a large number of contests but the ball game kept the crowd at the grounds until such a late hour that the street sports had to be postponed until after the supper hour, thus it was too late to give thoroughly enjoyed and the boys ( the entire program. There were Stomach Trouble. you have trouble with or chronic consti imagine that your Surprising When your stomach pat ion, don't case is beyond help just because your doctor fails to give you re lief. Mrs. G. Stengle, Plainfield, N. J., writes, "For over a month past 1 have been troubled with my stomach. Everything ate upset it terribly. Ope ojf Cham berlain's advertising booklets came to me.

Iauree of the Baptist church offered an invocation, the orches tra of little violin players under the leadership of Mrs. Dodge was a pleasing feature and the chorus choir rendered two Na tional airs. The oration by Rev. Dr. Benson was one of the finest heard in this city for many years. He did not follow the usual style of such occasions but gave a most inspiring talk on present condi tions, giving credit to those who deserve it without any partisan color and in fact made a most favorable impression upon the large audience that listened to him. At the conclusion of the oration Capt. A. W. Gowan, who acted as marshal and lead the parade, proposed three cheers which were given by all present. The base ball game in the after noon became tiresome before the nine innings were completed. It several foot races for the younger people, a relay race between the high school boys and the Indians in which the school boys won; a foot race for men in which Bre count won with Frank Clark sec ond. Billy Foren started in this race but he quit with the remark that he was too fat. A Good Investment W. D. Magli, a well known merchant of Whitemound, Wis., bought a stock of Chamberlain's medicine so as to be able to sup ply them to his customers. After receiving them he was himself taken sick and says that one small bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was worth more to him than the. cost of his entire stock of these medicines.
