Day and Night
During an acute attack of Bronchitis, a
' ceaseless tickling in the throat, and an
exhausting, hacking cough, ulllict the
sufferer. Sleep is banished, and great
prostration follows. This disease is also
attended with Hoarseness, and some
times Loss of Voice, It is liable to be
come chroiyc, involve the lungs, and
terminate fatally. Ayer's Cherry Pecto
ral affords speedy relief and cure in cases
of Bronchitis. It controls the disposition
to cough, and Induces refreshing sleep.
I have been a practising physician for
twenty-four years, and, for the past
twelve, have suffered from annual at
tacks of Bronchitis. After exhausting
all the usual remedies
I trfed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It
effected a speedy cure. O. Stoveall,

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral la decidedly the
best remedy, within my knowledge, for
chronic Bronchitis, and all lung diseases.

I was attacked, last winter, with a
severe Cold, which grew worse and
settled on lny Lungs. Bynight sweats
I was reduced almost to a skeleton. My
Cough was incessant, and I frequently
spit blood. My physician told me to
give up business, or I would not live a
month. After taking various remedies
without relief, I was Anally
Cured By Using
two bottles of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I am now in perfect health, and able to
resume business, after having beeti pro
nounced incurable with Consumption.

Two years ago I suffered from a severe
Bronchitis. The physician attending
roe became fearful that the disease would
terminate in Pneumonia. After trying
various medicines, without benefit, be
prescribed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
which relieved me at once. I continued
to take this medicine, and was cured.

Di trrloration of Wheat I "
It has been said that wheat in Oregon is
deteiioratiDg. Geo, Belshnw shows con
clusively (hat this is due to impot feet cul
ture, and Marving the plant by impoverish.
Ing the soil not to sowing the same kind of
wheat.'' Wheat, like stock, is improved by
proper sslectiou of seed and by strong feed
ing or enriching the anil. We give our read'
era tho following, biksn frun the Farmer
and Dairyman: . . rl j '
' Now for a practical proof of tin abovs, I
have about twenty varieties that, I have been
growing about twenty years; fifty' more
about ten years, and thirty more about five
years. - One-half of these are wiuter and the
other, spring .varieties.. . Two-thirds are
white, (he others are red iu color. ' These I
have obtained from different jconutries and
other localities, but few of tbse ; mail a
good sample short of 'three )nrs' growth.
These wheats I have raised on the samo
fields the whole time, and they are now
what we might pronouure as perfect
wheats, and those persons that saw them at
the lute State fair ut Salem would believe
this to be true. Again, at the) last World's
fair held at New Orleans in 18W these same
varieties grown upou the same soil for
twenty years gained the first premiums fur
tho best spring and wiutar wheat of any
class or locality meutioued; also the same
us to those for which diplomas were sent
me, making seven entries on wheats and
taking first premiums on the whole. Again,
at the two world's fairs, Philadelphia and
Paris, same kinds raised on the same soil
drew the lirst premiums and gold nmdal over
all others. The grains of these sunie varie
ties are larger now and huvfi been improving
in size and color for several years. Why is
this? Because they are now butter adapted
to the soil and climate, the more perfect the
wheat matures, the better the yield, hence
more, and a better gradt of Hour is made to
the bushel. Tho Willamette valley land and
climate is probably better adapted to raising
a superior quantity of wheat than auy other
country. Twenty years ago it was counted
nothing uncommon to raise twenty, thirty
or forty bushels per acre, and what is the
average now? '1 ha last four or live years
from sixteen to eighteen bushels; inking the
average of all the statu is only ubout twelve
bushels per acre. And the average of wheat
in England is from twenty eight to thirty
bushels;- why is this difference? ' Because
they keep the soil up to its proper richness
by a better management; while we, in Amer
ica, let it go down by raising wheat after
wheat without any rest, manuring, rotation
of crops, or fertilizing; hence the wheat and
llour deteriorate. Look all aronnd to our
lauds in general, how they produce to what
they did fifteen years ago; many fields one
third cockle and wild outs, hardly auy of it
merchantable until run through a good
clenutr; straw Bhort, heuce the heads and
grains diminished in size, and, of course,
the flour affected in quality and quantity. The
farmers have been changing seed continually
for years and their wheats to-duy are not as
good as fhny were twenty years ago. I have
lately received twelve new varieties from the
exhibition at Chicago, raised iu the adjoin
ing States for premiums at the show, and
not one sample is equal to the screenings of
my wheat raised here for twenty years,
Wheat will not deteriorate providing the
soil is kept up to its proper richness, but
will improve by being acclimated.
Marion County Suicide.
Tuesday afternoon a young mau mimed
Simmons committed suicide ou Howell prai
rie, Marion county, in a novel manner. He
was plowing in a tio acre field and some time
between 2 and 4 o'clock, just after starting
on bis return across the field from the
eastern boundary, he unhitchi d two of the
three horses, lied one end of a halter strap to
ihe doubletrees and the other about his neck
iu a slip-noose, und ufter wulkiug a few
steps, Jelibenttely law down and allowed
himself to be dragged to death. 'The aul
was seen by no one, and the discovery of the
commission of the awful act was first made
by two young men, Preston Wood aud John
leffersou, who were passing ihiougb an ad
joining pasture in search of oattle, aud
whose attention wus attracted by the ap
pearance, of the horses iu the middle of the
field, while the other horse and the plow
were near the fence, 000 yurds uudant. Life
was extinct. Neighbors were liiiuicuiutcl)
notified, mid the body was removed to Sap
piiigtield's, and Simmon's folks, living
threu miles north, were informed of the
tragical fate of the young man. ,
Eight years ago a handsome man of digni
tied beiii ing and refined appearance pussud
through St. Helens, Columbia county, und
took up his abode in a deserted cahiu ou the
.iehulem, says the Astoriau. Ho lived like
h hermit. A beautiful dog which accom
panied the btrunger into the woods; died
about five years ago, and the fashionable
clothes which the recliifca wore when he made
his tvtrtat we're replaced by coarsegfabrics
and strong conntry shoes. Twice each your
the hermit was visited by a woman of grace
ful form and eusy manners, who always
dressed in black and was thickly veiled. No
ou knew who this woman was or whence
she came. She remained with tho hcrmil
about an hour, and for three or four days
after her departure the recluse remained
within his cubiu. When at last he appeared
he locked much sadder and more sged than
before. Last Tuesday nioruiug the cabin
was fonnd in ashes. The hermit was not to
be found. His mysti-rious visitor called on
him about a week ago. He may have burned
with the cabin, but iheru is no trace of him
to be found. '

Frtillng Fowl (or Flavor.
Farm, Field and Stockman.
- We are glad to ace that some sellers of
poultry are discussing among themselves
why some birds are delicate in flavor, juicy
and fleshy, while others are strong, or else
insipid, with little muscle, nlthough, per
haps, overloaded wiih fat. The same is
found in eggs. The reason is slmfilo. Fowls
fed upon variety of food and kept in clean
quarters will have good tk"h, and the eggs
will be delicately Hsvorod, while those that
hare to get their living from garbage ami the
mnnuro pile will be soft, th flesh will de
cay quickly, and the eggs will be strong in
taste aud disgusting.
' It is well known that birds especially enr
ry the evidence of thuii lyed in their flesh.
All animals do mure or less. , The meat of
distillery-fed cattle is nr.t fit for food. Hogs
fed ou garbago aud city swill carry flesh dis
gusting, and often dangerous to cut.
- In relation to biids, the advantage of par
ticular foods we need only refer to Hie fact
that water fowls feeding on fish are unfit for
food. The canvas back duck gets its delica
cy of flesh from Ihe wild celery it feeds on.
The grouse of Pennsylvania is sought by
epicures far und wide, from the flavor it ac
quires from the mountain berries ' the birds
ft.d on. Thus we will find that the flesh of
not only birds but animals is influenced by
what they eut. Cattle und sheep eat oulv of
clean food, grass, hay and grain, The hog
is also cleanly in his feeding if allowed so to
be, The same is trne o fowls, although
they are what are called omniverons feeders.
Nevertheless, like swine, (bey will eut the
most disgusting subslaucea if forced to do so.
It is within the bounds of rensou that the
man who feeds poultry specially and cares
for them properly other v?aya, onco the rep
utation is made, uiuy get enough more for his
fowls and eggs to more than pay him for tho
extra care and tronble. '
The Portland News has the following in
regard to salmon fishing on the Columbia
There is quite a difference between salmon
catching now at tl for cannery I Mats and
$1.25 for outside boats, and what it was
fourteen years ago, said John T. Flinn, tho
real estate dealer, recently. "At that time I
was boat puller for Win Barry, who is now
Astoria's chief Of police, aud we llshed for
the noble Chinook salmon in tho lower Co
lumbia. The price paid for salmon then to
cannery boats was Wt cents apiece and for
outside boats 25 cents. The cnlcnlution was
that one-third should go to the cannery
which furnished the boat. The outfit fur
nished is worth about f 1,000. The nets
eout (i00 and the boats $100 apiece. The
net only . last one season, while a bout will,
with repairs, last for ten years. The Usher
men' used' to make big wages then. The
a vera go was 2J5 fish a day. The boat would
be filled so that it could hold no more and a
number would be fastened to a line and
towed to the canneries. We used to average
$400 a mouth then. Salmon fishing was it
good business then. Now the fishermen
count themselves in big luck if they catch
seven or eight hsU m a day. iloly U-ho, how
the business has changed !"
