The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in the form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or lu a
Bcnso of General Weariness and Loss ol
Appetite, should suggest the uso of
Ayor's Sarsaparillo. This preparation
is niost effective for giving tono and
strength to tho enfeebled system, pro
inotiug tho digestion aud assimilation of
food, restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, aud vitalizing the blood.
i Failing Health.
Ten years ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended me to try Ayer's
Hursaparilla, whic h I did, aud I am now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Barsaparllla, In my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it fs
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. 1 havo
also prescribed it as a tonic, a well a an
altt-rative, and must say that I honestly
UdiBve it to be the Ix st blood medidno
everconiKinded. W. F. Fowler, M. V.

Dyspepsia Cured. ,
It would be impossible for me to de
SfTilxi what I suffered from Indigestion
and lleadarhe tip to th time I began
taking Ayer's Barsaparilla. 1 was under
the are of various physicians, and tried
a (rreat many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than Wmorary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Harsaparllla
for a short time, my heada he disap
peard, and my stomach performed It
' duties more rs"ne:iiy. nm.i j
t liealth is completely restored. Mary
' llarley, Bpringtield, Slaas.
! I have been greatly lienefitwl by the
i prompt nse of Ayer's Barsaparilla. It
' tones and invigorates the system, regu-
i latm the action of the digestive and
j assimilative organs, and vitalizes tho
blood: It is, without doubt, the most
. ' reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

Why Wheat is Cheap.
Those who do uot understand why wheat
is so cheap at the present time will probably
hud a solution tor the problem in the follow
ing facts relative to the production of
wheat in foreign countries. It is true that
tho American wheat crop is smaller by prob
ably nearly UO.OOtt.tKH) bushels this year than
it was last, and if this had uot been true here
as well as iu India, prices would now in all
probability be lower than they have been
known for yeura. Rut the crops in other
foreigu wheat producing countries have been
large and that has prevented the higher
prices which would undoubtedly have pre
vailed as the result of the shortngu iu the
crops of Iuiha and America.
For example the Austrian crop is' reported
as 17 per cent, above the average am) the
Hungarian 26 per cent. Havana has shown
a yield 20 per cent, larger than tho avenge;
(treat Rritain and Ireland 20 per cent.; Ser
via 40 per cent.; Little Wallacliia25percent.;
Central Russia 18 per ceut.; Cherson 20 per
cent.; other Russian districts 100 per rent.;
Switzerland 110 per cent.; Franco 105 per
rent ; Holland 102 percent.; Denmark and
Sweden 100 per cent,; Italy !HI per cent.
It will thus be ecru that the increase in the
yields of the foreign wheat producing coun
tries just sliovo counteracts the etl'ccl of the
shortages in India aud the Uuited States.
These figures aud estimates are those of
the international corn market of Vienna, and
may be considered perfectly reliable and as
nearly accurate as such estimates can be
Tlie Sugnr lit a
The great sugar king of this coast, Clans
Spreckles, is said to he on the point of em
barking in the manufacture of sugar f roni beets.
If such is tho case it indicates the opsning nf
an important iudnstry for this coast. The
Alia has Uie following upon the subject:
"The First Napoleon founded this industry
in France to make his country independent
of English colonial sugar, (ieriuatiy adopt
ed it in order to be independent of France,
and both countries patiently developed it by
subsidies stiil bounties, until now it controls
the price of sugar in the markets of the
world. The sugar beet of California is kuowu
to exceed all others iu its saccharine percent
ge. The yield per acre passes tho most
prodigal tonnage of other conntrii s. and our
seasons are such that we havo advuutagii
over all the rest of the world in growinghar
vesting, handling aud storing the vegetable
In Frauce aud Oermauy the crop is subject
to mishaps, due to the weather mid changes
in temperature after its growtli is completed.
It has to be harvested at once to avoid frost,
while here iudeed, its growtli never ceases,
and it uiuy remain in the Held practically
from ono year to another, with no loss of its
quality. This distributes tho manufacturing
season over a greater space and permits iu.
the whole process, from planting to refine
ment, a profitable margin of time uuknown
in other countries."
The lncationof lliowreckof the old steamer
llrother Jonathan has, it is claimed, at length
been discovered. She struck an unkuowu
rock off Crescent City and went down with a
large number of passengers twenty-two years
ago. She had on board a considerable
amount of treasure, aud to devise means to
rencuo this, search lor the wreck has liecn
prosecuted more or less steadily for the past
ten years. The next step will be to explore
the vessel by menus of the diving bell, and
penetrate if possible the chambers that have
closely held the secrets of the sea for nearly
a quarter of s century. The very name of
the ill-starred vesscl'thut so lone did her
(,art iu tho stinted commerce, of thnso days
letween San Francisco and Portland awakens
interest in tho minds of hundreds, whose res
dents ill Oregon anti-dates that time and
further proceedings in regard fo the wreck
will be swaiti'd curiously, if not anxiously.
THE SIlSLsW CUl'XTRY.
The daily consumption of corn iu the Peo
ria distilleries has iuciensid from lfi,IH8
bushels to 2H.21H bushels. This is the result
of the formation of a whisky trust company
Cimjiosi-d of the great distillers, and tho in
tention of the same to manufacture the bulk
of whiskv where it ran be done the cheapest.
Many of the larger distilleries of Cincinnati,
St. Louis and other cities have bef n closed
and the bulk of the business thrown to IVo
ria. Some idea of the immense business
done in this line may be uathered from the
statement that up to the 1'Jtli of litut month the
internal revenue ctdlectii ns in the Peoria
district iimoiintrd to over a million dollars.
It is the insatiate demand back of this enor
mous supply that makes the heart of the true
philanthropist sick. Ex.
Ros burg lUi' iew: It costs no more time
nor expense to miss s good fruit tree or a
standard grape vine, nor any more land for
that matter than it does Ut cultivate s variety
that Ins no marketable vulue. This is fact
which our horticulturists should b.sr in
mind t'V- Hi' r with the accepted rule that to
make orchards or vineyards profitable, it will
iot do to mix varieties.
The great natural advantages of the seaport
of Florcuce as a business locatiou are seen at
a glance. While it is near enough to the
ocean for a most delightful annum r resort, it
is far enough inland to command the trmle ot
the rountry to the eastward, lleilig mar tho
confluence of the North Fork, Siuslaw river
and South Slough, it commands the trails of
these most fertile tributaries. It is eoiiUfcttl
by wagou road with the Mercer Lake rountry,
the Cape Perpctii.i section to the uorth, the
entire roast to Coos liny on the south and by
way of South Slough it is easy of access by
boat from the Teu Mile Lake country.. The
main Siuslaw river is navigable fof small
steamers for 18 miles alnive Florence; the
North Fork for 10 miles and South Slouuh
for some (our uiilci. The country along the
Siuslaw and its tributaiics is a mixture of
timbered uiouutains, brushy hill sides, rich
bottom lands, gentle Slopes aud tide lauds
with the first mentioned class largely pre
dominating. Large tracts of government
laud are still unoccupied from which may
be selected much good land for pleasant
homes. Along tide water navigation, the laud
is nearly all occupied, it being thu most ac
cessible to the early settler, but as new wagon
roads are built, new country, fully as pro
ductive as (hat nearer navigation, is opeimd
Along tho banks of the main stream where
the glassy witters lie iu peaceful repose, or
move tip slid down ith the gentle pulsations
of the tnle, disturbed only by sporting tUh,
the hurrying steamer or the idle splash of a
bostuisu's oar, are found as pleasant homes
as the heart could wish. Nothing iu mm
burut and dusty San Diego can compare with
this enchanted river for convenience, beauty
aud comfort. The little steamers pass your
tloor from the Florence stores daily and de
liver your purchases promptly and somewhat
alter the style of tho city express wagon.
Natural springs pour their crystal fountains
from almost every hillside.
Of this section are very numerous but as yet
the salmon canning industry is the only bus
iness that has reached any degree ot devel
opment. There are three canneries iu suc
cessful operutiou. Tho lumbering facilities
are simply enormous and Florence at this
time iB the best unoccupied field for a huge
merchant mill on the Pacitiu Coast. Large
limilier schooners with a capacity for six
hundred to eight hundred thousand feet have
crossed the bar without the aid ot tugs thus
demonstrating tho tact that lumber can be
shipped from this point to any p.irt of the
world as cheaply as from other ports. The
timber supply has been estimated by ail ex
pert lumberman to be worth over fifty mill
Ion dollars, embracing fourteen town
ships ot almost solid timbc.-. Pros
pects havo been found indicating large de
posits of coal convenient to shipping. Iron
ore Is found ill abundance, also deposits of
paint of which much is used in its natural
state. Tho climate is much superior to the
Willamette valley both for winter and sum
mer, being warmer iu winter aud cooler in
.A3 A SUMMER RESORT
This section has no equal on the Paeiflo
Coast. From Halo Westward to Herd of
Tide the route lies through a continuous
park of changing lieauty. The loads like ull
new mountain highways are rough, but will
soou become smoother as nu n are kept con
stiintly employed building bridges and mak
ing oilier needed improvements. From Head
ot Tide to Floreuco iu two and one-half hours
is pronounced by excursionists, "Thu tluest
ride I over had iu niy life," "the mpst beau
tiful river on earth," Ac, &r, Hut the cli
max of all is found in the drive on thu beach
aud the ascent of Cape Perpetua. Ho unique
so magnificently grand are scenes here that
no attempt will be made ut their description.
PREPARATIONS FOR ENJOYMENT.
The climate of the coast eveii during tho
most sultry weather is so cool as to reuuiro
light white! clothing aud those who go there
must dress accordingly or expect to ''freeze
out." They should also learu from the inia
ted the art of digging clams, where to find
the fattest mussels, how to Caleb rrabs,
shrimps and other delicious Hah. They
should remember this is a new country and
hotels sre neither grand nor commodious,
and for the present more comfort is fosud
ill "camping out" than depending solely up
on the hotels which will probably be crowded
during the excursion season.
Since the issue ot our latest circular in
January lust tho following improvements
have been uiade in the rapid development
ol Florence aud vicinity. Three large sal
mon canneries have been built and fitted
with complete machinery, two small steam
ers have been placed on the rivtr aud make
daily triHt to the head ot navigation, one
neat store building erected and opt ned with
a complete stock ot general merchandise,
and another under coi strut lion, the U. S.
Mails from Eugene have been expedited
from once to twice per week ami in
connection therewith a four-horse stage fully
equipped placed on the route which making
close connection with steamers has rodnowl
the traveling time from Eugene to Florence
to nineteen hours, Lake creek lu:s been
bridged st the upper crossing, and the coun
ty authorities have let the contract for a
i'.IH'M bridge at the lower crossing. Dead
wood and Indian creeks have laen bridged,
the stage road completed to deep water navi
gation and an elegant drive opened to the
WJUderlaiid of Cap. Perpetua. The s'.rsmer
Mischief has found business enough for three
trips sntl the Rosa Olm-n one. Within a
short time increase iu traffic will be sulfieieiit
to employ steamers at regular aud frequeut
intervals. Negotiations are also pending
regarding the laanagt meiit of a staunch oceau
vetsel o l owned and manag d by parties
living iu Florence.
