28th, after having served out a sentence
in the jail of Multnomah county, not hav

mind was in a terrible state. He sought
our office, and desired us to say thathe
was not so bad a man as the world had
been educated to believe him to be. lie
said that poison whisky had ruined him ;
that all he had in the world was lost ; that
he did not wish to live any longer; that

A Smokt "Weather Item. Several of
our oldest inhabitants aver that they have
never seen in this country, such dense
smoke as now prevails. They are, how
ever, slightly in error, , as the summer of
1S.37 was an example of smoke, dense and
long continued, beside which the present
pales into comparative insignificance. We
remember very well that in that , summer,
says the Oregonian, the atmosphere was so
thoroughly loaded with smoke from vast
ui C3 m tm; vAasi ana Cascade ranges of
mountains as to create a sort of distemper
among the people throughout almost the
entire valley. The disease resulted from
inflammation of the respiratory organs,
superinduced by inhalations of smoke, and
somewhat resembled influenza. The per
sons affected were troubled with labored
breathing, slight cough and mucous ex
pectoration. We have heard some rather
large stories told about the effects of the
smoke that season. One person z Yam
hill averred that he actually had a bad
toothache cured by breathing the creosote
floating about in the air. Another de
clared that his throat became so tanned
like buckskin that he has never been able
since to distinguish by taste betveen
whisky and spring water. It is ni cer
tain, however, that he has tried the latter
within the last twenty years, and there is
a bare possibility that he is mistaken as to
the present intelligent sensibility of bis
swallow. These are only specimens of
the serio-comic talk then and afterward
common, when the smoky term was under
discussion. We cannot conscientiously
vouch for the truth of either story, but
they will serve to illustrate the deep im
pression made upon the people's minds by
. . ..... i i i
the almost tiueiv uanuiess wnicn prevaueu.
Since 1SG7 there has certainly been noth
ing to equal the present smoky term. Itie
forests on botu banks oi tne river ueiuw.
and on the Coast range both north and
south of the Columbia, are on fire, the con
flagration being furious and wide-spread,
and we may therefore look for the smoke
to become still more dense, and it may
possibly become as troublesome as in 1S57.
The have been ov?r the lines of
both the east and west side Companies
this week, influential men from all parts
of the valley. And, so far as the real
work of the Gaston Company is concerned,
it is nothing to compare with what has
been done on the East side, as we are
assured by men who were over both
lines. Then- is not two consecutive
miles of grade near ready for ties on the
West side ; on the East side about four
teen miles are ready for ties ; and this, too.
without skipping over bad places, as it has
been charged was done. All the East Side
Companv ask. is that their work may be
compared with that of West side.
The Unionist says that the Clackamas
Paper Mills could have been running for
the past three months only that the Com
pany was compelled to send to New York
for a piece of machinery, the value of
which was about twenty-five dollars. It
was essential, and the mill was unable to
run without it." This is news to us, and
will undoubtedly be to the proprietors
of the mill. Guess you're mistaken about
that, Brother Huntington.

The shapes of the clouds ahdthe
trees do not differ more widely than th
forms of nervous disease.. Sometimes both
the mind and body are affected, sometimes
the body only, and often the complaint is
confined to a single member. In one class
of cases the motive nerves alone are disor
dered, as in St. Titus' Dance in another
class the nerves of sensation only are attack
ed, as in neuralgia, tic douloureaux, tooth
ache, earache, etc. Pain is, in fact, the im
mediate consequence of a disturbed condi
tion of the nervous system ) for only thro'
the delicate fibers of which it is composed
can pain be experienced. Tremors hysteria
and most ot the unpleasant feelings usually
included under the head of nervousness,
arise from, the weakness of these sensitive
threads which pervade every part of the an
imal structure, and have their source in the
focntain head cf all senstion, the brain.
The tonic action of Hosteller's Bitters is of
vast service in cases of this kind. Nervous
headache, ordinary faceaclie, neuralgic pain
and everj variety of spasmodic torture, are
quickly alleviated by the use of the prepa
ration which at once braces and tran'qiiilizes
the nerves. Persons of a lymphatic temper
ament and feeble organization, are especial
Jy subject to these complaints, and should
take the Bitters daily as au invigorant. La
dies will derive great benefit from them in
all the peculiar mental and physical disturb
ances to which, as a sex, they are subject.
AsafcEtida, valerain, and the other nervines,
usually prescribed for these affections, at
best merely alleviate them for the time being
but the Bitters are a permanent invigorant,
and their value as a remedy for every phase
of nervousness is beyond all estimate.
It is a great thing t hare a sound and
vigorous constitution. There is nothing
that money can buy, comparable in value to
this best gift of nature. The difference be
tween the individual who has it, and the un
fortunate who has it not, is just the difference
between f he man who goes into battle cloth
ed in defensive armor, and one who has
nothing to oppose the sword and bullet but
his naked breast. " The pestilence that
walketh in darkness, the sickness that des
troyed a't noonday," while it lays low the
man of feeble stamina, i3 often conquered
by the native strength of what is called an
" iron constitution."
Heaven, however, has not endowed even a
moiety of mankind with this inestimable
blessing", and therefore it behooves thjse
who have it not to resort to those most effi
cient means of constitutional invigoration
which science can supply. ..There is good
warrant for asserting tnat Ilostetter's Bit
ters are admirably adapted to promote this
end. Other tonics have their drawbacks.
The concentrated extract of pcisonous veg
etable substances, which within the last few
years haTe been introduced into the practice
of medicine as invigorants", are all extremely
dangerous. Trussic acid and strychnine,
though often given as strengthening medi
cines, are not safe even in the diminutive
doses ; and quinine disastrously effects the
nerves and the bones. But in Ilostetter's
Bitters there is positively nothing that is not
healthful and wholesome. They contain no
ingredient which by any process could be
converted into an active poison, and yet as
a constitutional stimulant are infinitely pref
erable to any of the sulphates and aaetates
which have been recently added to the ma
The Government Countersign.
The counterfeiting of Ilostetter's Stomach
Bitters is now a somewhat mere serious as
well as difficult business than it was a few
years ago, each bottle of tte genuine article
being authenticated by the official endorse
ment ot thetLnitcd fetates Kevenue Depart
ment in the form of a stamp engraved on
steel, to counterfeit which is a felony. See,
therefore, that this Government Counter
sign, as well as the engraved label and note
of hand of the proprietors, is attached to
the battle. The label is embellished with a
superb representation of St. George on horse
back, in the act of spearing the Dragon, and
underneath is a shield or escutcheon, bear
ing a warning inscription, which countar
feiters are advised to read before they en
counter the penalty which it sets forth. Be
low this again is Hostetter &. Smith's note
of hand, the signature to which it would be
rather a serious business to forge. If the
public will look to these verifications of the
genuineness of the article before they
purchase! . they caunot be deceived.
The proprietary label arid Government
stamp are both executed on steel in the
most elaborate style of bank-note engraving
and are probably the most expensive speci
men of graphic art ever attached to any
