Among the many attractions at North
Beach, near New York, there is a wild
man, who, according to the owner of the
show, was "captured at great expense in
the wilds of Borneo." The wild man's
name on the show bill is "An-nabk-r-am,"
and it ia declared that be eats cats,
dogs, birds and mice. The name spelled
backward bears a close resemblance to
that of a noted Ohio man.

led to a lower stalactite cave, where
offerings were found finer than those

He sat in the door at noon day, lonely

around the poor man's hair. At last in
misery he shouted, "Great Scott!" I'm
covered with flies." and the zephyrs
tunefully murmured, "It's because you

The population of Greater New York,

This includes the population of the Bor

shows it to have been 37.9 per cent.

Four men were injured near Viento

bridge on which they were working.
The fireman, Jessie Moore, son of Ike

name we could not learn, was injured
internally. The men were taken to St.

No man knows the exact population c f

by compelling the Celestials to move

The Dalles correspondent of the Ore-

credit for the amount of fruit shipped
from here during the past week. There

Kurtz A Sechler shipped two cars, Pete

There has been appropriated out of

the sum of $2:,000 for surveys of public

This is a comparatively large appiopria

write to R. A. Hibereham, surveyor
general for Oregon, Portland, for blank
applications for surveys and secure the
suivey of their claims as soon as possi
ble. The Kansas populists are really state
socialists. The state already has a
plant for the manufacture of bindery
twine. In their platform the Kansas
populists "especially favor the develop
ment of our oil resources by the state,
and the relief of our people from the
exactions of the Standard Oil monopoly
by the erection of a state refinery to re-
fine the products of the oil fields of our
state and supply oil to our people for
their own uee, at the cost of production
without paying tribute to that over
grown monopoly."

Eliza Jana George, a spinster of 50
years and a native of Missouri, was ad
judged insane yesterday and committed
to the asylum on complaint of J. W.
Cramblet and Lucy Cramblet, of this
city. Owing to a little misunderstand
ing the woman was not sent below yes
terday, and as she appears perfectly
rational most of the time, It was thought
best to let her have her liberty for three
or four days and await results. The
woman is harmless, and about the
worst tbat can be said of her is that she
talks incoherently at times, indicating
that she is off her base. It is claimed
that she was never herself since about
eight years ago when she had an apo
plectic stroke.

eight years. They were ill at the time of
their brother's funeral, with what the
parents supposed was merely "gore

last evening, when Dr. Geisendorffer
pronounced the illness diphtheria. Ttie
marshal was duly notified and the house
flagged this morning. It is claimed that
the afflicted children have not been in
the company of the neighboring children
since they began to complain of being
ill, but with a funeral from the house it
will be a miracle if somebody does not
manifest the resuit of exposure.
K. j. ttorman returned last evening
from Collins Landing, where be has been
visiting his relatives for a few days.
lie states that he was more than sur
prised at finding that Collins was such
a splendid camping place, aud that moie
campers do not spend the summer season
there. The hot springs are equal to those
at St. Martins and much more con
veniently located, as they are close to
the landing and within a five minutes
walk of any of the camps. As yet but
few people know anything of these
springs, but as it is the intention to put
up a large hotel, and thoroughly ad
vertise the place as a sunni er and health
resort, there will probably be hundreds
there next summer. Those who enjoy
hunting and fishing, find these enjoy,
merits to their hearts' content, while
mountain climbers can get their fill in
making the accent of Wind Mountain.
The springs and grounds are conducted
by accommodating gentlemen, who do
everything in their power to make it
pleasant for campers, and it is safe to say
that every one who is there at present
will be a walking advertisement f r the
springs. .

Dear Doctor McKinley : Four years
ago I had that idle feeling and craving
tor food in my stomach that I could not
seem to fill for the want of something to
eat. In fact, my entire family suffered
from the same complaint.
I had severe pains in my back from
carrying the mortgage on my home. My
condition was such that my friends
hardly knew me. I looked so much like
a tramp.
Then, hearing of your Prosperity
Remedy, I tried it, and today I am a
changed man. I am glad to say that all
my "Hard Times Pains" have left me.
We could not now get along without
your Prosperity Remedy in my family,
and we shall continue to use the same.
