JIVE HIGHWAYMEN CREATE

'., .'" News. ' '
Baker City, Aug. 7. Five des
perate hold-up men created more
excitement in this town this morn
ins than has ever been the record
Just at daybreak" Deputy Sheriff
Snow was notified that three pedes
trians, whose names were suppress
ed for the time, had been robbed
ten minutes before on the main
street by five matked men who were
At ooce tbree otner omcers were
summoned and a diligent ssarch
for the tbuga was begun.
In passing through the business
part of the city Snow observed two
rongh-lookiDg men in the Oiympia
Cafe in the act of robbery.1 Stealing
to a side entrance, his m n bad the
desperadoes coverea before they
eould make a return fight.
When surprised the robbers and
highwaymen were filling their pock
ets with hard boiled eggs. They
were overpowered aod taken to the
police station, where they were
searched. Two hundred dollars
was found on their persons.
Daring the trip from the place of
capture to the station one of the
tiugs kept up a running fire of vile
epithets at the omcers. At the eta
lion neither would give their names
or the least clue to their compan
ions. A dozen men had by this time
formed into a posse, and a diligent
search for the remaining" three
members of the gang is in progr.ees
at tbia time..
It has been ate rtained that they
came in on the train from Portland,
which arrived about midnight last
No further details cm be gained
except that While aboard the in
coming train the men kpt separat
ed and were only occasionally seen
in company with each other. :
Baker City, Or., Aug. 7. W.ll
Pa born, aged 23 years, and Fred
Jennings, aged 24 years, both young
men from a farm near the little
town of Eldorado, Iowa, are on
board a train returning home - with
aortiane apiece this morning.
When the O. R. & N. train pull
ed out of Baker City last night for
toe East the two young men loaded
gold nugget into the passenger
ear with them that, the two were
barely ablet handle. It was' in a
large meal sack, 'and when they
, moved it along the platform one
held on one end and the other the
opposite end of the sack.
They refused absolutely to tell
from' which direction they came in-
. t B ,ker City yesterday afternoon
or' to disclose tne region. V from
whence they eecn-td the find. They
were armed and placed the nugget
at their feet alter they had boarded
the train. But little is known of
the two youog men ia Biker city.
Tney were seen here about three
months ago.V They had just come
from an Iowa farm, and were wand
ering ab .utthe country, getting ex;
perience more than anything el?e.
They had i.ever heard of the gold
fielda of Eastern Oregon. One of
them bought a map with statistics
of the region. This was th ir only
guide. How they grt out into the
couuiry aud their method or pro
spectiag are unknown. They would
not even gay how or from what di
s rect;on they came into Baker City
in. the afternoon. Tbey attracted a
great deal of attention on thepht
m. with, their butden.
Placerville, Cal., Aug. 8. Great
excitement was created in Placer-
ille shortly before midnight by the
sounds of shooting on a hill just
artst of town.' John Witman and
3am Martin, who had been watch
ing the ridge all evening, saw two
men break from the brush and run
through an orchard. The men fired
at the fleeing figures, but did not
bring them down. Several more
shots were fired into the brush in
which the fleeing men took refuge,
but without result.
A score of citizens gathered on
the bill and again the fugitives were
seen breaking through the brush at
the lower end of the orchard. Shots
were agiin fired, but all trace of the
28 men was iobi. . .
A small army of men is '.now
gathered on the hill, and a watch
will be maintained all nignt. It is
thought one of the men is Case,
who is trying to get into Chinatown
for opium. A man supposed to be
a convict paseed through Eldorado
today headed for this place.

This Eminent Divine Upholds the
Advertising Doctor Whose .
That most eminent divine, the
late Henry Ward Beecher, publicly
advocated the advertising doctor,
as he once stated in the following
'I am glad that the doctor cared
him. I am glad that the doctor
put it into the paper that he could
cure him. And if any doctor is
certain that be can cure such dis
eases and don't put it into the pa
per, I am sorry. What a pity it
would have been bad this doctor
come to town with his wealth of
science and experience, and gone
away leaving him uncured! What
a pity it wouid have been if he had
been to prejudiced against advertis
ing as to read the responsible orti
ficatej of tbe doctor and give him
the go-by as a quack!'' What are
newspapers for if not to circulate
information? What more valuable
information could a newspaper give
than to tell a tick man where he
can be cured? ' II a man has de
voted bis life and labor to the etudy
of a special class of diseases, the ne
cessity of bi saying so becomes all
the more pressing. His duty to ad
vertise becomes imperious. A real
ly able man, whatever his gifts,
makes a great mistake if be fails to
use those gifts through want of ad
The above fxtract from an able
article of the Rev. Mr. Beecher em
bodies a second view on tba subject
of advertising. ;"- Suppose Dr. 'Dar
rin had come to tbe city and not ad
vertised, who would know of his
presence? Since Dr. Darrin has
been in Albany he has relieved
more agony and suffering than
tongue can tell. His testiTQonials
have substantiated bill cures. ' The
fact that his offices at the Revere
Hotel' are crowded the greater part
of the time and that few go away
diesatij-fied.is pretty good evidence
of his success.
The editor of this" paper is per
sonally . acquainted with many of
the people named as cured by Dr..

Eight jnonths ago I was so ill
that I was compelled to lie or sit
down nearly all the time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could keep nothing on it
and I vomited frequently. I
could not urinate without great
: pain and I coughed so much that
my throat and lungs were raw ,
and sore. The doctors pro
nounced it Bright 'a disease and
others said it was consumption.
It mattered little to me what
they called it and I had no de-'
sire to live. A sifter visited me
from St. Louis and asked me if
I had ever tried Wine of Cardui.
I told her I had not and she
bought a bottle. I believe that
it saved my life. I believe many
women could save much Buffer
ing if they but knew of its value.
Don't you want freedom from
pain ? ' Take Wine of Cardui
and make one supreme effort, to
be well. Tou do not need to be
a weak, helpless sufferer." Tou
can have a woman's health and
do a woman's work in life. Why
not secure a bottle of Wine of
Cardui from your druggist to- v
day? ' '
