HiGirwAT "Robbery. On Friday morn"
f Dg last, between nine and ten o'clock,
among the foot-hills beyond Philomath, a
gentleman from Douglas county, a cattle
buyer, was stopped by a brawny six-footer,
Who" suddenly stepped from a tree beside
the trail, seized the bridle-reins of the horse
a. which the cattle buyer rode, and pre
senting a cocked six-shooter demanded
"your money or your lite." Our friend
irom- Douglas isn't much on the scare, but
as the footpad was a brawny chap and had
the drop on -him, he concluded that the best
tbing he conld do was to '"throw up his
hand," which he proceeded to do with great
celerity. Mr. iootpad then queried as to
monev, at the same time slipping his left
hand into one of the front pockets ot the
cattle-buyers' overalls, holdiug the revolver
steady with his rigM hand and keeping a
close watch on him besides. The footpad
found nine dollars in silver in said pocket.
and although the cattle buyer fold him that
was all the money he had he would not
take bis word tor it but felt over his person
until be struck a back pocket,' which con
tained $500 in gold, which, of course made
quite a lump, and seemed to excite the
.footpad, for in his eagerness to secure the
money he not only dropped the muzzle of
the revolver down considerable, but he let
his eyes wander toward the treasure. It
Was but for a-sueond, but for such a man as
our triend from Douglas it was sufficient,
With the suddenness ot the lightning's flash
he seized that revolver and attempted to
twist it from the grasp of the robber. The
fain was falling at the time, and our friend

but he succeeded in exploding the revolver.

in getting away from the robber, when he
put spurs to his horse and lit out towards
Philomath. He hadn't got more than
twenty feet when he heard a cap snap, and
looking back he saw the robber rapidly ar

had hardly turned himself in hi saddle be

heard the ball sing as it passed close to his
head. A sudden bend in the trail and he
Was out of sight ot his would-be murderer,
and tlie swiftness of the animal he rode
soon carried him to the village. If our
friend from Douglas hadn't been the pos
sessor of a cool head and plenty of nerve
he wcnld have lost all his money, and pos
sibly his life. Look a leedlc oudt when
traveling among the lonely hills with a

There is no exaggeration in tlie; state
ment that thousands of persons residing
from one year's end to another in fever and
ague regions on this Continent and else
where, breathe air more 'or less impregnat
ed with miasma, without incurring the dis
ease, simply and only because they arc in
the habit of uing Hosteller's Stomach Bit
ters as a preventative. It has frequently
happened, and the fact has been amply at
tested by the parties themselves, that per
sons surrounded on all sides by neighbors
suffering: the tortures of this shivering and
burning piaguo. have enjoyed absolute im
munity Irom it, thanks to. the protection
afforded by the Bitters. Nor is that stand
ard anti-febrile cordial less efficacious in
remedying than in preventing chills and
lever, bilious remittents, and disorders ot
a kindred tyj. Taken lietwecn the par
oxrsins, it speedily mitigates their violence,
and eventually' prevents their recurrence.
Th.'se fact, convincingly established by
evidence, appeal with peculiar force to
