Mrs. "William Gago, Concord, N. II.
For a number of years I was troubled

to obtain any relief until I commenced
using Ayer'r Sarsaparilla. This nieili

believe it to be the best of blood puri

From childhood, and until with a few

I suffered for a year with inflamma

on the ball, depriving me of sight, and
causing great pain. After trying many
other remedies, to no purpose, I was final

three bottles of this medicine I have been
entirely cured. My sight has been re
stored, and there is no sign of inflamma

T. Bowen, Sugar Tree Ridge, Ohio.
My daughter, ten years old, was afflict
ed with Scrofulous Soro Eyes. During
the last two years she never saw light of
any kind. Physicians of the highest
standing exerted their skill, but with no
permanent success. On the recommen
dation of a friend I purchased a bottle of
Ayer's 8arsaparilla, which my daughter
commenced taking. Before she had used
the third bottle her sight was restored.
Her cure is complete. W. E. Suthir.

Vicwril Ihe Siskiyou Scenery.
When the Southern Oregon wenther began
to "get in its work" on the new railroad
over the Siskiyous, afwut the first thing it
did was to suspend indefinitely the time card
of the Mt. Shasta division of "the C. & O. It.
U. The sides of the deep cuts began shap
ing themselves to the angle most pleasing to
nature, sloughing off the surplusage of
rocks and alluvial deposit and piling it upon
the truck; the big fills begun to settle aud re
adjust themselves upon a more solid Imsin,
and in many places along the roadbed the
enl of Ilia unballasted track had to perform
the unnatural duty of holding up the ties.
A heavy rock slide at Steinmnu prevented
the H. P. trains from coining auy further
north than that place after Tuesday, and the
0. C. sent up a train from Ashland to
1. -aitsfer passi,gers, mail and express nutter
at that point, rndny the railroad boys km id
to the Tidings editor: "You ought to go up
to Ihe slide and see the road aud get au
item for your paper." The editor thought
so loo, and boarded tho special train which
pulled out for Steinmau Friday about 11 a.
m. At the slide the south bound passengers
were transferred to a C. P. train and soon
started up the mountain. Then we were
ready to come back to town that is the
editor was ready, but the traiu wasu't.
Looked at the scenery some. Kock debris
and liquid adobe in the foreground, and
cloud banks, fir trees and an occasional spot
of wet sky in the distance. Man in telegraph
cur said no prospect of south train rouching
Stciuiuan that day. Ready to go home
again. Conductor hadu't time to run down.
Looked at the scenery some more wetter
and muddier and darker. About
midnight heard the south bouud train Just
above us on the second grade, the engines
snorting nud puffing and the conductor
thinking himself in luck that be had made
five or six miles in ten hours. The passen
gers, including the Uncle Tom's Cabin Co.,
didu t nave anything to eat on tne train so
far as we knew, but tbe donkey and pony
and the two blood hounds. Next morning
we heard that they had reached Cole's with
out having to butcher the beasts. A good
not breakfast again improved the situation
Saturday morniug, and about 9 o'clock the
welcome order to pull out for Ashland ar
rived. Took a farewell look at the scenery
at the train started off two miles an hour.
Hadn't gone a mile till a telegraph messen
ger afoot overtook the train and stopped her
with a dispatch "return to Stuinman aud
await orders." About this time the Tidings
representative coucludcd they shouldn't
force any more of that scenery npou him,
and in company with the news agent struck
out down the road in a gentle Italian drizzle
to count the ties to Ashland. Walked Over
half way to town when along came tbe train
serenely rolling toward home. It stopped
and took us iu out of the wet, and before
another telegraph messenger could get in his
work Ashland was reached and the editor
made his escape. No, thank you, no more
railroading till next July.
A Rare Coin.
Some time during the year 18SG, says the
Jacksonville Times, E. Hendricks, of Apple
gate, cut a large pine tree near his bouse
and found in its interior a rather anoionl
coin. The tree was a very large one, aud
his ax was not the first that had been used to
mtr its symmotry and grace, for, encircled by
forty-fivo rings of poarly growth, were found
evidences of a previous assault clear-out
marks of an ax, a small cavity and a pack
age of cloth or paper containing a copper
coin. No writing or other marks could be
found on the covering to relieve the curious
in respect to this event. The coin is about
tbe size of a nicklo, is composed of ooppsr,
is dated 1790, has on one side the lion and
the unicorn struggling for tht crown and on
the other side a monogram composed of the
letters V. O. C. The tree stood on the banks
