TEN DAYS ON SINKING HULK
One by One Tney Succumb to Hunger
and Thirst Captain Goes Insane
and Jumps Into the Sea
Before Help Comes.
FORT TOWNSEND. Wash.. Dec S.
After ten flays of hardship, privation and
exposure, two Japanese were taken from
a submerged hulk several hundred miles
off the coast of Japan and brought here
by the schooner W. F. Garms. arriving
this morning after a S3 days' passage
Irom Manila. The men were part of a
crew of ten men who left Toshumura
October 4 for two days' fishing In a 15
ton schooner called the Kouplna Maru.
On the third day out the vessel struck
a rock and filled to the rails. Prior to
Failing, a heavy plank had been lashed
to the after bitts and on this for ten days
the men existed, with no nourishment
hut a few fish which floated tip from the
hold. One after another the unfortunate
fellows succumbed, until October 16 but
three remained, including the captain.
That day a speck was sighted on the
horizon, and believing it to bo land, the
half-demented captain started to swim
He soon gave up the battle and sank be
neath the waves.
The men soon recovered under the kind
treatment of the Garms crew and made
-themselves useful on the tempestuous
voyage which followed the rescue. Every
sail on the schooner was torn to shreds
during the succession of gales which
overtook her, and the rudder becoming
disabled, temporary gear was necessitat
ed, with which the vessel finally made
the Straits. Thorough repairs will be
made before venturing to sea again.

Albany Municipal Election Will Be
A LB ANT, Or- Dec. 3. (Special.) Inter
est In Albany centers In the annual city
election to be held Monday next. There
are three Councllmen to elect this year.
The Mayor, Recorder and City Marshall
hold over until next year.
The question at Issue is closely allied to
that which was settled at the resent Pres
idential election, when the citizens of
Albany and Linn County were given an
opportunity to voice their sentiments on
the liquor question. At that time the
majority of the voters of the county reg
istered themselves as favoring a "wet"
county and every precinct In Albany gave
a majority against prohibition. Now the
Prohibitionists of Albany have brought
out candidates in every ward in the city,
and the question will be fought out along
the lines on which municipal questions
have been handled for years past.
As two members of the Council are now
roported to favor a dry town. It will be
necessary for the Prohibitionists to suc
r eed in but two wards lh order to have
control of the Council. Liquordealers
and those taxpayers who exerted them
selves in opposition to prohibition a.t the
recent election under the local option law
realize that they have a hard fight before
Those candidates who have been brought
out by the prohibition element state that
as tho people of Albany have registered
themselves in unmistakable terms In fa
vor of licensed saloons, that they, the
candidates, will, if elected, favor the
maintenance of saloons with the proper
license. On the other hand, the members
of the resent Council who are up for
re-election state that they will stand on
their record; that they favor saloons with
a license that is Just to both city and
saloonmen, and allege that the uncer
tainty of the statements of the high li
cense candidates makes it possible for
them to place the license so high as to
Dannals, Dawson and Bowersox, in the

ATTEMPT TO WRECK
Idaho Man Puts Obstructions'
on 0. R. & N. Track,
ARRESTED, HE CONFESSES
No Apparent Motive Than Vcious-
ness in Placing a Rock, a Ra?l and
a Telegraph Pole at Difffrent
Points Before Trrns.
BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 3. (Special.) De
tectives of the Oregon Short Line have
arrested IV. B. Petrie, of Caldwell, for
attempting to wreck a train on the night
of November 25. He placed a large rock
on the track at Lannan Spur, threw a
steel rail over the track, two miles south,
and put a telegraph polo across the rails
near Not us. It appears the fellow was
walking up the road late in the night.
A freight train, eastbound, struck the
rock and later struck the rail. The lat
ter was resting on a bank at one end
and was thus so elevated that the cow
catcher struck it and knocked it aside.
That train passed Petrie and he then
placed the telegraph pole across the rails
and It was struck by a westbound freight
a little later. The man was arrested on
tho Bolso River, where he was camped,
hunting and trapping. When taken to
Caldwell and sweated he confessed and
told exactly how he had done it. There
appears to have been no other motive
than simply to cause a wreck.
I Petrie walked all the way to Caldwell
and was seen by the Ecctlon men In the
early morning, the Information given by
the latter furnishing the clew that led to

Chyte, an old resident of this city, was

Chyte, it seems, was laying in wait for

latter's house, but had been Keen by
Klnkle, who thought him a burglar.

THE MARRIAGE QUESTION.
Although many people marry without
reasoning about it, and do not know the
word romance they feel it and act it all
their lives and are content. There are
unhappy married lives, but a large per
centage 01 these unhappy homes are due
to the illness of the Tvife, mother or
daughter. The more civilized or. cul
tured a race becomes, doing with less
and less physical exercise in the out
door air, and with the wearing of
corsets and other modish customs, the
more likely are the women to suffer from
womanly ills. Every woman should
know what right living is for perfect
health and a fair complexion she should
occasionally take a vegetable laxative
such as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Backed up by over a third of a century
of remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no ether remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to women ever
attained, the proprietors and makers of
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now
feel fully warranted in offering to pay
$500 in legal money of the United States
for any case of Leucorrhea, FemaleWeak
ness, Prolapsus, or Falling of womb, which
they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair
land reasonable trial of their meansof cure.
Could any test be more fair showing the
faith of the makers t Do not listen to
the arguments of the dealer that his own
make is better. It means better profit
to him, that's all. He insults your in
telligence when he tries to make you
change your mind, to take a substitute
jfor the standard remedy -which has en
joyed years of success and the testimony
pf thousands in its favor.
1 Dr. Pierce by no means confines him
self to prescribing his well-known medi
cines. He tells you in the most common-sense
way what ails you, what you
ought to do, what line of treatment
should be followed out in your particular
case, and if your case does not indicate
the need of his proprietary medicine, he
tells you plainly and frankly what you
do need, and the best possible method of
improving your health. li you are a
young woman just entering upon the
duties oClife, you should have good med
ical advice of a confidential nature. If
you're a mother of children, you may
want advice about yourself and how best
to put your system in order that your
children may be healthy. To sufferers
from chronic diseases -which do not
readily yield to treatment, or to people
who are past the youthful stage of life
and want confidential advice about their
ailments or their physical condition, Dr.
Pierce offers to carefully consider your
case and give you the best medical advice
within his power, free of cost to you.

Many Mills in Washington Are Clos
Ing Down for a While.
SEATTLE, Wash., Dec. 3. (Special.)
.Owing to a demoralization of the lumber
and shingle markets, scores of wash
lngton mills are closing to await better
prices. Already a dozen of the larger
mills have been shut down and others
are joining in the movement, which may
become general unless the market can
be restored. Shingles are selling on the
basis of 51.23 for stars and $1.50 for clears,
prices which, with logs firm at $7.50, leave
no margin, of profit.
The slash In the association lumber
price list Is Illustrated by the fact that
No. 1 drop siding is selling at $16.o0, and
No. 1 floorln- at $18.50. Cargo mills Hood
ed with orders are getting higher prices,
but complaining that even the better fig
ures leave no profit, and many cargo mills
are turning down orders. All reports
from the East Indicate that stocks arc
depleted and practically everything sold
here has been shipped, leaving tho mar
ket clean on tho Coast.

and readjusting conditions mlllmen hope
to stop the sacrifice of standing Umber at

What Sulphur Does

and most widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liver
and kidney troubles and cure constipation

surprlpes patient and physician alike.
Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experimenting
with sulphur remedies soon found that the
sulphur from Calcium was superior to any
other form. He says: "For liver, kidney
