In Critical Condition. Rev. O.
E. Haven, one of the Bishops of the
M. E. Church, who some seven weeks
ago arrived in this state, is lying dan
gerously ill at the residence of Rev. J.
N. Dennison, Salem. Shortly after
his arrival here ho was prostrated by a
severe attack of bilious remittent
fever, which afterwards changca into
typhoid malarial fever. On the first of
tho month a change for the worse set
in and the Bishop has since been quite
low. At a consultation of physicians
on Sunday last, it was given out that
the case, although not necessarily hope
less, was a very critical one. Tho
Bishop's wife and son came up from
San Francisco, nnd are now ministering
to his wants. The Bishop will not bo
able to carry out his plan of visiting
and presiding at the two Methodist
conferences in Oregon and Washing
ton, the two in California, aud the con
ferences in Nevada and Colorado.
P. S. Since the above was in type
we learn that Bishop Haven died Aug.
2d at 2 P. SI. of urainic poisoning, aged
CO years. He was elected Bishop last
year. He was born in Boston Nov. 1,
1820, and since 1842 had been in the
educational and ministerial fields.

To tiie Trade: Practical experience
has demonstrated to us that the trade re
quires a choice old Bourbon for inimedi
ate use. For it is well known that straight
whisky that is absolutely pure requires
age, great care and attention, and our old
Davenport whisky possesses all the above
qualities. The grain used in the distilla
tion of our J. II. Davenport whisky is
carefully selected from the finest, richest
and very Iwst grown in the state ot Ken
tucky. The water is drawn from one of
the finest limestone springs in the state,
the peculiar properties of .which have
gained lorKcntucKy whiskiessuch world
wide celebrity. This process makes our
J. H. Davenport a pure, hand made, sour
mash -vhisky, and wc claim that for deli
cacy of flavor, purity and medicinal qtlal
ities, it stands unexcelled.
Yours truly ScnuLrz &Von Bakqex.
From and after this date J. P. McDaniel
& Co. Jacksonville, will keen the justly
celebrated Davenport, pure straight whis
ky exclusively.
