OREGON CITY COURIER-HERALD, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER i, 1899.
The Eail of Warwick, commonly
called the "kingmaker," from the fao
nlty with which he created aud deposed
inonarchs daring the contest between
tbe house of York and Lam-after, lived
in style of magiiificeuce and hospitality
of which no period perhaps famishes
an example. No less than 80,000 per
sons are said to have lived at bis board
in the different manors and castles
which be possessed, and the military,
allured by his hospitality as well as bis
bravery, were strongly attaohed to bin
interests. Tbisdistingnished warrior fell
at tbe battle f Barnet in 1471, when,
owing to tbe mistake of one part of his
army falling upon the other daring a
fog, be was defeated by Edward IV.
In former battles Warwiok bad al
ways fought on horsebaok, that be
might at once ride along tbe line and
perceive tbe particulars of tbe action,
bnt on tbis oocasion be determined to
fight on foot, that bis soldiers might
see that be was resolved to share with
them the dangers of the day. After hav
ing exerted himself as an officer and a
bero in fruitless attempts to turn the
tide of fortune in bis favor be rushed
into the hottest part of tbe battle and
fell covered with wounds. His brother,
Montacnte, in endeavoring to save bim
met with a similar fate. Nuggets.
Gold la Pyrites.
Experts in gold mining agree that
pretty much tbe bottom faot now known
about snob metal 1b briefly tbat all orig
inal pyrites of small grain texture con
tain gold to a greater or less extent,
this, of course, not covering such sec
ondary large orystal pyritous deposits
derived from veins. It is not yet known,
however, whether tbe gold in these
pyrites is in chemical combination with
tbe sulphido of gold, or whether each
minute particle oil gold is simply cover
ed with a coating of sulphide of iron,
or finally whether such particles are in
the metallic state, but alloyed with sil
ver or other metal which combines more
rapidly with sulphur than the gold
docs, and consequently forms a ooat of
sulphide of silver over the gold. The
. particles of gold are so minute and the
combinations follow so rapidly during
the splitting up' of these pyriteB that
the finest instruments and tests known
to chemistry Lave as yet boen unable to
-settle this part of the question to the
watisfaotion of all ooncerned, this faot
Vbowing how easy it is to put in a mill
that will not save the values.
Death of Mrs. Prior.
Mrs. Richard Tr'or, who died It st

This story is told of Sir Walter Soott,
Who was far from being a brilliant pu
pil at school: After he beoame famous
he one day dropped into the old school
to pay a visit to the scene of his former
woes, The teachor was anxious to make
a good impression on the writer and
put the pupils through their lessons so
as to show them to the best advantaga
After awhile Scott said: '.'But which is
the iluuoe? You have one surely. Show
bim to me."
The teaoher oalled up a poor fellow
who looked the picture of woe as he
bashfully came toward the dlstin
"Are you the dunce? asked Soon.
"Yes, sir," said the boy.
"Well, my good follow," said Soott,
here is a crown for you for keeping
my place warm. "

Where Will We Spend Our Sum
This is the time of year to think about
it, but before you decide, write for an
elaborate, illustrated pamphlet showing
numerous photo engraved views of the
many attractions at the seashore and en
route, and advantages of the Columbia
river beaches as reached hv the Astoria
hours and thirty minutes from Union
Depot, Portland, to your beach hotel, in
a magnificent parlor car without change
or transfer is a convenience and luxury
few resorts can "ffer. Such is the initial
attraction of this favorite resort.

' upon a kind
wife cannot be
blamed for ask
ing herself if all
her years of de
rotion and work
were worth the
white, when it
comes so soon to this tragic and.
If men would only take the most com
mon sense precautiops against the en
croachments of ill-health, there would be
fewer bouses of mourning, and fewer
women left alone almost helpless before
the battle of life is half over. A man's
liver and stomach art twin machines that
work together, ekher to make or unmake.
If they work wrong, they deplete and
poison his blood. Impure and impover
ished blood mean sickness and death. If
they work right, they purify and enrich
the blood. A ma whose blood is rich and
pure, and whose liver is active cannot well
be unhealthy. Headaches, biliousness, in
digestion and costiveness, which men gen
erally disregard, are Nature's warnings
tbat the twin mechanism, stomach and
liver, is working against, instead of for
him. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery is the best medicine to use under these
circumstances. It creates appetite, cor
rects all disorders of the digestion, invigor
ates the liver and fills the arteries with
rich, red, healthy blood. As an invigorat
ing, restorative tonic, it is far superior to
all the malt extracts. It is the great blood
maker and flesh-builder. It does not build
sicklv, flabby fat as cod liver oil does, but
the firm, muscular tissues of health.
"For the last nine years," writes William
Miller, Esq., of 651 Mulberry Street, Reading,
Pa., " I have been very poor in health. I suf
fered with a running sore leg. I tried many
kinds of different medicines, aud doctors with
out relief. Then I used three bottles of ' Golden
Medical Discovery ' and can say that I am en
tirely cured. I cau now do as good a day's work
as the uext man."

It was in the Newluton ward, where
tbe candidate on the Liberal side was
Mr. Ritobie, a well known oonfeotioner
and restaurateur, whoae pies and rock
were cquully famous in Auld Reekie.
After the poll the following conversa
tion wus beard between two working
men who bad just emerged from the
Toting station: "Weel, Tarn, did ye
tote for Ritobie?" "No," said the oth
er, "1 didna." "Aud what for no?"
asked his astonished friend. " You're a
