Tho wonderful curnttvo nmrwrttna nt tho medicino wore, to n great extent, oolf-advcrtlslng, for whoever used it recommended it o others, and tho do mand gradually Increased. In 1877, by combined efforts tho fam ily had Bnfcd enough monoy to com menco newspaper advertising aud from that time tho growth and success of tho onterprlso wero assured, until to day Lydla IS. Plnkham and hor Vcgo tablo Compound havo beeomo houso hold words everywhere, and many tons of roota and herbs aro used annu ally in its manufacture. Lydla E, Plnkham herself did not live to nco tho great success of this work. Sho passed to hor reward years ago, but not till she had provided means for continuing her work as effectively as she could hare dono it hcrsolf. During her long and eventful expe rlonco nho was ever niothodlaal In hor work and sho was always careful to pre serve a record of ovorycaso thatcamo to her attention. Tho caso of every slok woman who applied to her for advioo and thcru wero thousands recotved carofu study, and tho dotalls, Includ ing symptoms, treatmont and results wero recorded for f uturo reference, and tc-day these records, together with hundreds of thousands mado alnoe, aro available to slok women tho world over, and represent a vast collabora tion of Information regarding tho treatment of woman's Ills, which for authenticity and aocuracy can hardly bo equaled In any library in tho world. With Lydla E. Plnkham worked her daughter 'In-law, tho present Mrs. Plnkham, She wasearefullyinstructcd In all her hard won knowledge, and for years sho assisted hor In her vast correspondence, To her bauds naturally fell tho direction of tho work when Its origina tor passed away. For nearly twenty Uvo years sho lias continued it, and nothing In tho work shows when tho drat Lydla H, Plnkham dropped her pen, and tho present Mrs. Plnkham, now tho mother of a large family, took it up. With women assistants, soma as eapable as herself, the present Mrs. Plnkham continues this great work.and probably from the ofllce of no other person have so many women been ad vised how to regain health, tilok wo men, this advice is ''Yours for Health" freely given if you only write to ask for it. Such is the history of Lydla E, Plnk ham's Vegetable Compound ; mado from simple roota and herbs) the ono great mediolna for women's ailments, and the fitting monument to tho nobis woman whoso name it bears.

Tho grange bills do not go so far as tho farmers' and ship pers' bills, bat do attempt to tar groM earnings of certain corporations and th tank line earn, the refrigerator ears and the Pullman ears. The grange bills should be supported by everyone who stand's far the principle of Indi rect taxation, and this great reform will h-avo to be won Inch by inch. If both the grange bills and the farmers' congress blUs are Initiated they will almost wipe out the direct state tax If enacted and all ottineas who favor taxatien: reform should strike tlo blows In the direction and net find fault with technical defects or diffor eneea. Tho Journal urges all to sign tho grange petitions and to vote for the bills It Initiated. . Publish tho Tax Holla. Tho bill Initiated at Woodburn ahouhi bo supported for containing tho great principle of publicity in taxa tion refornr. IMght In this connection we wish to say that. school land frauds are not the only retten things In Ora iron. The whole assessment system as now conducted by county nMeeeors is unjust. Personal pro-terty nearly all eneapea the tax aolleeter. Land ia as seaftfld at many values. One man has twenty acres near Salem that is as aeased at twice what M0 aares are aa swed that Ha alengaide ef him. Ttlch men have been dodging taxes all their Uvea and tbe evade the inheritance tax law aa new drawn before thay die, Thoy naturally fight the farmers' and shippers' congress hill. Hut publicity will seme day be shad en the present retten r vs-tew that reba the small Vrej arty owi'er to protect the mttllenaire ami tbe corporations that are shielded here and hereaftc. C'itiseas, pay no attention te the crit ics. We have one week t Initiate the indirect taxation btlls. Sign tbe peti tloas and let- a mere just system be es tablished. Let all true Americana help strike down the privileges (bat make tbe rich richer md the peer paerer. Against AU Initiative. (Salem Statesman editorial.) There is a growing "ne" sentiment In this state and vtry likely it will make itself manifest BY THE DE FEAT OF ABOUT ALL Tim "INT. TIATTVE" LEGISLATION AT THE POLLS NEXT JUNE. That some good measure are apt to be initiated amy be true, but there ia too much ef the "ono man initiative" ia evidence on every thing eo far suggested la tbe Use of general legislation. What with Clackamas county's Ultan, initiating a lot of ameodaveats to tbe constitution along these lines whioh have already "balled up" our statutes, and Marion county's "great initiator" INITIATINO A OENEEAL FOPULISTIO TAX LAW, and Yam hill -county initiating tbe refereadum ea tbo general appropriation bill, and Linn county initiating a "bunco" pur chase of the "Willamette valley wagea road gold brick, it begins to appear to tbe people in general that "no is going to be a popular and "aceea eary" word ia the June election. Comment on the Above. In reply to tbo Statesman's refer ence to A aENEEAL POPULISTIO TAX LAW" wo will say that there i not a new feature ef the proposed tax bill that has sat bees before Bepubli can legislatures one or mere times and nearly amy feature passed the lower bouse one or more times. Tbe Davey bill to tax gross earnings was defeat ed, Tbe Harris bill to tax .franchisee was defeated, Tbe Sonneman IU1 waai defeated. The, Griffin bill to tax Pull man palaee ear companies was defeat ed. The WU to require publicity of as aeesments before equalisation waa do f i ted in the last house. Why should net the people have a ohaneo to vole on these Itopubllcan moaruros without having It thrown at thorn that thoy are PopulisMc moasurosf Furthermore the bill has the specific endorsement aa to that feature of tho manngor of the Statesman, who now attacks it, as follow).
