"Swift-water Bill," says the Dawson
Dispatch, has somewhat of a "pull" in
Dawson, and has exercised it to the
extent of exterminating . the famous
Lamore , family, root and stem, from
the Klondike capital. :
William Gates, or VSwiftwater Bill"
has had a world of trouble with this
family, and during the spring when, by
reason of prior water rights, Gates was
unable to obtain wator to sluice his
Dominion claims, they were making
him squirm , by reason of his shortage
. of ready cash. But when the first
water rights were consumed, Gates got
his dumps under wash, and once again
the famous silk hat and long-tailed
coat were taken in hand and "Swift
water Willie" was the Yukon. Monte
Cristo of old.
He secured as a special attraction a
young ' girl from Portland, notwith
standing he had to start her mother in
the lodging-house business in Dawson

to act as chaperone. This young lady

A NARROW ESCAPE.
nii Ceat Cana-ht, and He Came Rear
; Belnr Cremated. :
A number of club sportsmen had
been telling stories mostly illustrating
"the hair-breadth escapes", they had
experienced on various hunting expe
ditions in the far West There was
only one member In the group who
had remained silent, and he was asked
to relate something for the general en
tertalnment . ' ' ' J-" :.
"I was Just thinking of an exciting
and nearly fatal ride I bad on a farm
wagon when hunting in the Adlron
dacks last November. I had been
out all day shooting partridges, quail
and all other game that came within
the reach of my gun, and late in the
afternoon when ' my bag was full I
cimo to the conclusion that I had had
a fair day's sport and would go home,
But I didn't realize how fagged out
I was until I started on my Journey,
and the fact that I had a heavy load
to carry for Ave miles before I reached
the farm bouse where I was staying
was anything but pleasant to contem
plate. However, I had gone about a
mile on the country road when I heard
the rumbling of a vehicle behind me,
and on looking round I saw a big wag
on loaded with hay. The driver soon
caught up to me, and learng that he
was going a abort distance from where
I lived, I asked him to give me a ride.
He gave mo permission, stopped his
horses and when I had scrambled up
on top I lay down in the hay and went
ewaylng and swinging pleasantly down
the road. I was Just thinking of pre
senting the old farmer with a few
birds wben suddenly there was a bang!
My gun, from which I had'omltted to
take the cartridges, had gone off. The
horses . gavo a jump and the driver
rolled off bis seat Into a' ditch, where
he lay stunned and motionless.
J "Then I discovered that my gun had
set fire to the hay, and I thought it
was about time for me to Jump for the
road. The horses were tearing along
the road as fast as they could run, but
I clambered for the side of the load and
slid for the ground.-- ".rV
"The tail of my stout hunting coat
caught on the top of a sharp-pointed
standard and there I hung to the ca
reening wagon . that every mlnuto
threatened to upset and dump a load
of burning hay on me at every turn of
"The fire was crackling and burning
fiercely, and already I could feel the
flames. Still the horses ran and still
my coat held me fast to that seething
mass of fire. My trousers began get
ting uncomfortably hot and then I ob
served with horror that my coat was
on fire. .The next moment the loose
cartridges in my pocket began explod
ing' from the heat and then I smelled
my birds broiling."
"Well, you were not cremated," said
one of the listeners. "What happened
'I had just made up my mind that I
was going to be roasted alive when the
tall of my coat burned off-and I was
thrown into a ditch full of water on
the road." Presently, when 1 had recov
ered my senses, I got up, brushed the
mud from my clothes and resumed my
journey, without stopping to see what
had become of the horses, my gun and
the old farmer. The next morning I
took tho first train for New York, and
thus ended one of the most exciting
shooting trips I have ever had." '
SIGNATURES ON A WAGER.
Bow a Man Got Other to Petition to
Have a Judge Hanged.
"I've often heard of folks signing all
manner of absurd papers without read
ing them," said a tenant in one of the
large ofllce blocks, "but '. I saw the
thing demonstrated in a very startling
fashion one day last week.
"A broker in an adjacent ofllce got
Into an argument on the subject, and
to settlo a bet about It drew up a peti
tion to Gov. Foster. It started out with
i long rigmarole of a preamble, the
substance of which was that Judge
(naming one of the most promi
nent and highly respected Jurists In
New Orleans) was a menace to the
public on account of his phenomenal
stupidity, and wound up by requesting
the Governor to order him to be hang
ed Immediately. The whole thing was
clothed in such a mass of pompous and
high-sounding words that It was diffi
cult at first to catch its absurd pur
port, but, reduced to plain EDgllsh, it
was about as I have stated.
"Armed with this Interesting docu
ment, the lawyer went the rounds of
the block. 'Here's an invitation to
Judge to deliver a lecture on Ro
man law,' he said to every man be
met i I want you to sign it Shall I
read it to you?' 'Good heavens! No!"
the other fellow would say as soon as
he glanced at the mass of writing, and
down would go his signature.' Incred
ible as It may seem, he got forty-four
signers In less than two hours and won
his bet, which was based on forty. :
"Out of the wholo crowd he encoun
tered only one man who Insisted on
reading the document before affixing
his no rue;- He happened to be a bitter
political enemy of the Judge's, and
when he got through he smiled grimly.
'I'll sign that with pleasure,' he said,
'and I'm' glad so many other citizens
feel the same way.' But, leaving him
out, thero were forty-three Intelligent
men, lawyers, doctors, merchants, bro
kers, bankers, manufacturers and
other representative citizens who had
deliberately but unwittingly signed a
petition to hang one of our Judges.
When some of them heard what they
had done they were highly indignant,
but It certainly taught them a valuable
lesson. They couldn't be caught that
way again." New Orleans Tiinea

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED .
By local appllcatlom, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. 'l here is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is by oonstltu
tioaal remedies. Deafness is caused by an in
flamed Condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or imper
fect hearing, and when It is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing willbe destroyed
forever; nine cases out ot ten are caused by
catarrh, which is. nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces. .

case of Deainess (caused by catarrh) that can
not be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Bend for
