BROOKS, Me., Sept. 7. 1870.
Dear Sir From early youth I was in
feeble health, troubled with humor In mv
blood, weakness and debility of the svsteiii
generally ; was unable to labor much, and
only at some light business, and then only
with great caution. .Seven years ago tlie
ptist spring, I had several a(acks of diph
theria which left my limbs paralyzed and
useless, so I was unable to walk or even sit
up. Noticing the advertisement of Peru
vian Syrup, J concluded to give it a trial,
and to my great joy soon found my health
improving. I continued tho use of the
Syrup until three bottles had been used,
and was restored to complete health, and
have remained so to this dav. I attribute
my present health entirely to the use ot
Peruvian 8yrup, and .hold it in high esti
mation. I cannot spenk too hio-hiy iu its
praise. I have in several cases' recom
mended it in cases similar tn i.u

LATE NEWS FROM TJIE SEAT OF'
i Pine creek July 4', 1877.
Friend Van :-We are all alive yet, hat
I expect we have numerous friends and rel
atives that think our hair has been raised'
long before this time. " - '
There was a man killed here recently.
He thought there was no danger and staid
at home, his place being on the trail known
ns the Nezpcrce trail. Two renegn.de In-'
dians came along and killed him. lie had5
no arms with which to defend himself, anf
being an old man was easily ovcrpowered.
1IU name was John Bitchy, v;
A large number of residences have been':
broken in to and robbed of ,auch things a
rl n. 1 it I, .r nmii' rxrfT.I. . .3 a t '
things that suited the fancy oftlse.se "bravw'
red thieves of the forest." There is not a!
settler that has not been damaged and lost
more or less through these rascally redskins;-
We have been foiled up, but at present'
about one half of the settlers have succeed-'
ed in getting out of the country and mov
ing their families to Walla Walla, while"
the few that are left lave gone to their'
homes, trusting that the worst is over.
Arms and ammunition was sent to m to
enable us to defend ourselves from tne wily
savage, but when they arrived at Walls'
Walla the authorities froze on to them
tliat is, tlie larger part, as they seem to ba"
worse scared at Walla Walla tlian we are'
up here in the Indian country. We got?
but fifty guns iu this county, while Walla'
Walla kept one hundred ! I have tills In
formation from good authority. We have"
no soldiers and are poorly supplied wit!1
"fighting tools'' to protect our families'
and crops and lierds from tlie attacks of the'
Indians, and of course Walla Walla far
removed from the track ot the savage and'
from possible , trouble, should have all the"
means of defense the Government has at'
command ! This is commendable, anuf
come to think of it its rather stirprising'
that it was thought worth while to send ua
any guns at all ! However, they have al .
ways felt "rough" towards us because we
can raise more and better grain than they'
cau. However, I will not be too hard on'
them, as others wilt write up the history ot'
"these times" who will place the matter1'
in a strong light. i i .
Here at Pine Creek we got ten guns for'
a company of fifty-five men M ho had been'
organized for our defense. -
There is uo trouble with any ot the In
dian tribes except the Xezperces, and tliev
have divided ; some have gone north, some'
down the Columbia, some to Joseph and
some to the reservation. "VVe hear a good
many reports of devastation and death,
and then they are all contradicted, but ifr'
keeps up an excitement all the time,
which keeps us at home and no work is'
done, as no one dares to go and leave his
family, And j that's what's the matter
with us at present. Ccsrrcx.-
