April 10, 1914

After eight hours of councilmanic hawing and corporation hemming over the franchise entaglement of the California-Oregon Power company, the city council this morning heard the first reading of an ordinance putting the question up to the voters of the city, and adjourned until next Monday for a final decision.

Thursday night a long-winded session was held that was as full of deliberativeness as the world is of sin. The representation of the electric company wanted the ordinance railroaded, and the members of the council wanted to wait a week or ten days to think it over. Colonel Sargent led this wing, and was firm as the forces of the Lord at Armegeddon. Every time a new point was brought up the colonel would hold an individual secret caucus in the back room, with every councilman and the mayor.

The council is divided on the merits of the proposition of the company, and feel the city should be offered something in the way of better rates.


E.M. Wilson, the expert accountant who was hired by Ashland to look up Autoists complained to the police that children at the Washington school, during recess and the noon hour, deliberately stand in the path of their moving machines, compelling the drivers to slow down to avoid an accident. When the auto slows down the kids pile on the running boards, running the risk of getting their necks broken. Chief of Police Hittson will advise the principals of the grammar schools to issue warnings to their charges against a continuance of the dangerous practice.


Advertisement: Here's a chance, Miss Freckleface, to try a remedy for freckles with the guarantee of a reliable dealer that it will not cost you a penny unless it removes the freckles; while if it does give you a clear complexion the expense is trifling.

Simply get an ounce of othine — double strength from any druggist and a few applications should show you how easy it is to rid yourself of the homely freckles and get a beautiful complexion. Rarely is more than one ounce needed for the worst case.

Be sure to ask the druggist for the double strength othine as this is the prescription sold under guarantee of money back if it fails to remove freckles.
