the. climax. ; ' '

offered apologies to the speaker and the

speaker closed .the Incident. '

t Wolf Bonaty Wins.' J i
After a long and solrited flgbti between
the 'house and the senate It has heefe 'de
cided to pay tho wolf bounty claim of $40,
000.' The decision was factied' this after
noon when the-senate conference committee
receded In behalf of the senate iff cutting
out this claim and the'' senate adopted the
report of the committee .This matter has
been fought out between ; the , two houses
for three days. The house committeemen
declare that had Senator Warner not been
removed trom the senate conference .com
mittee no decision would have.been renchcd.
The majority of. the .housonleraberr Jiave
been for paying the claimss since the first.
The senate cut down '-the- claim of . ex
State Treasurer Hill from 84.000 to 82.000,
and the house bad to Concede this In order
to prevent an Interminable deadlock.
Railroad Bill ': Tails. . . '
The Union Pacific failed 'to foroe through
the house 8. F. 202 by. President Pro Tem
Harrison of the senate, by means of which
that corporation sought to evade a portion
of its school taxes. The bill went with
that number that were buried in the grave
yard, at the final wlndup. - . .'
This bill sought to impose upon rural
school boards the necessity of .anticipating
at the beginning of every school year all
the expenses for that year and make out
a list of them to be presented to the county
clerk and taken as the basis of the levy for
the maintenance of those districts. If
this list failed to contain every cent of ex
pense incurred for the year It would .imply
mean that" the district would '.lose, that
much, for ' the clerk would be powerless
to pay for anything not Included (ln 'the
list. Ana ne wouia oe uname to maice any
levy at all where suh" list, were not pre
sented. Opponents1 of- the (Mill 'pointed out
the utter folly of such a provision, holding
that It would be almost Impossible for any
district to anticipate to 'the very cent all
the expenditures It would make for that
year.' The result would be, they declared.
the closing down of a number of country
schools In western counties, wherein over
seventy . districts the Union Pacific, was
practically the sole taxpayer.
Another provision' they objected' to was
that the clerk wa. prevented from, levying
a tax greater than 20 mills. ' The public
school committee In the house wantsd thri.
raised to 30 mills.- Opponents feel rather
Jubilant over defeating this measure1 which
they regarded as distinctly a railroad bill.
Boavrel Custodian of Halli. '
The power to purchase supplies for the
legislature and the custody of the legts
latlve halls and property have been re
moved from the secretary of .tat. and
vested In the board of public land, and
buildings by the passage of 8. F. 276 and
8. F. 278 by the house today. The gov
ernof's approval Is all that Is needed to
transform these bill. Into law, i
During thl. session there ha. been a great
deal of dissatisfaction- expressed over the
law that makes the secretary of State the
purchasing agent and custodian of 'legis
latlve supplies. This dissatisfaction led
to somewhat of an investigation of certain
purchases made In recent years and the
result of the Investigation admittedly lent
substance to the determination to wrest
this function from the secretary of state.
8. F. 276 provides that the board shall
advertise for - bids for supplies at least
sixty day. prior to the beginning of the
session and that the limit of stationery and
other necessary "supply" purchases shall
b. limited to 8500 in opening the 'session
8. F. 276 give, the board custody of the
house and senate halls and property. Both
measures are by Benatbr Cox.

''Saved My Life and Kept Me
From Insane Asylum." j
Mra. Wilcox Is Now in
Ferfect Health Through No
Other Agency Than
The absolute need of an honest and genu
ine Invlgorator and health' giver In the
spring season I. deeply Impressed on the
mind ot every thinking and Intelligent man
and woman. '
Th happy cure of Mr, J. B. Wilcox, of
Winter. Cal.. through tho use" of Fame's
Celery Compound, created widespread as
tonishment and Joy amongst her friends
and neighbor, who were exceedingly anx
ious regarding her condition'.
The best medical treatment tailed even to
give Mr. Wlloox a few day. relief from
her sufferings ot mind and body. ' At last,
Paine'. Celery Compound .aved her from
a terrible end and planted her fort (Irmly
on the rock of health. ; . .
Read Mr. Wilcox', letter of testimony,
dear reader, and If . you remain - obdurate
and unbelieving after such ao earnest and
convincing confession of cure, nothing but
a direct act ot Providence can snatch you
from the danger, and peril, of your posi
tion. Mrs. Wilcox says:
"Palne's Celery Compound did for me
Payne's Oelery Compound ' did for me.
Some years ago my . head troubled me so
that tt seemed that 1. should be craiy. It
wa. caused by overitudy, I' asked the ad
vlr of two doctor, . who irave me medi
cine to no effect, and I did hot know what
I would do. I did, not want to see anyone,
everything seemed so strange. I had a
tired, lagging feeling, my bowel, were out
of order, my kidney, troubled me, and I
felt badly, but before I had taken half of
one bottle of Pal no's Celery Coiii&ound I
felt like a new person. Four bottles cured
me. And I would recommend It to ail who
feel the way I did, I can't praise it half
enough, for I know It saved my life and
kept me from Imprisonment in an Insane
asylum, which is as bad as dna'h."
