Speaking of patent medicines, the
Judge says : "I wish to deal fairly and
honorably with all, and when I Gud an
article that will do what it is recom
mended to do, I am not ashamed to say
so. I am acquainted with Dr. Vander
pool (having been treated by him for
cancer), and have used his blood medi
cine, known as the S. B. Headache and
Liver Cure, and while I am 75 years old,
and have used many pills and other
remedies for the blood, liver and kid
neys, I must say that for a kidney tonic
in Bright e disease, and as an alterative
lor the blood, or to correct the action of
the stomach and bowels, it is a very su
perior remedy, and beats . anything I
ever tried. " J. B. Nelson,

THE PROSPECTING FEVER SET IN.
Hillsides are Honeycombed With Prom

KEPT BACK 15V TBE LAND IAWS,

in That Retlon A Hew State of
. -Spokane, Sept. 6. Some very rich
mineral deposits have recently been dis
covered in the brutes and slopes along
the boundary line between . Ijitah and
Shoshone counties, Idaho, and a regular
prospecting fever has set in in that sec
tion of the country. Frank C. Loring,
mining engineer, returned yesterday
from the town of Vollmer, where he
went to make a number of mining sur
veys and in other ways to exercise bis
ability as an expert,. "He was greatly
surprised. ,; The prospectors there have
unquestionably struck some very rich
leads, and prospecting is going on at
fever heat. The hill sides are fairly
honeycombed with prospect holes, many
of which are very promising and indicate
wonderful richness of ore. Heretofore
this has been considered an exclusively
agricultural country. The surface ' is
covered by a very rich soil several feet
deep and is heavily wooded all along the
hil.s in the valley. This fact has doubt
less had the effect to keep the prospect
ors out in the past. . But a new state of
affairs is beginning to establish itself
and in the future farming wilt " be a
Vollmer, while there," said Mr. Loriug.
"His prospects are situated about thirty
miles east of the town of Vollmer. One
of these is a vein of galena ore, 15 feet
wide, interspersed with quartz, and
assays 200 ounces of silver to the ton at
a depth of -16 feet from the surface.- It
is one of the finest ore beds that I have
ever seen." -
Mr. Loring showed the reporter some
very rich specimens of chloride of silver
from a property belonging to Henry
Abies, in the' same district, the assay
value of which is very high. The rich
est 'specimen, however, which Mr. Lor
ing has to show is the chunk of horn
silver from the Delamai mine in south
ern Idaho. This ore assays 80 per cent,
silver. . The same mine is now yielding
large quantities ot native silver as well
as sulphates and carbonates. ; Hon.
John M. Burke and others own a claim
right adjoining the Delamar, which is
said to be very rich. The latter mine
is reported to have f 4,000,000 in sight at
the present time. -, .' t
Chicago Bono Market.
J. 6. Cooper, commission salesman of
horses, Union- Stock Yards, Chicago,
says: The receipts of horses at the
yards for the week ending Aug. 31st
have been quite liberal, but the demand
was urgent enough to absorb', the offer
ings at good prices, work horses gener
ally had the greater call about in the
following order : Draft horses, streeters
and -chunks. '. The demand for good
drivers and coach teams is still on a
limited scale, with extra' good ones sell
ing at sight. Yesterday he held what
might properly be called the first regu
larly advertised sale of range horses, and
while some got for their horses consider
ably more ; than their -" expectations,
others were disappointed. .. The range
of prices was from $25 to $41. Follow'
ing is summary : - . . .

East Oregonian. It is idle for the
democrats of this state to' talk about
carrying it for Cleveland and Stevenson
this year, although we would like to see
it done. .The best thing for the demo-.
crate to do ia to fuse with the peoples
party meruand wrest the state from the
republicans by such combination. This
is feasible and practical, and we believe
the result would be victory for the fusion
ticket. Otherwise the republicans will
carry the state by at, least 5,000, if not
10,000. - ' .

Not Ertn Ordinary Precautions Taken
7, - " toy Canada.
The dispatches announce . that, al
though the United States, on the Atlan
tic eeaboard and along the Canadian
frontier, has established a sufficiently
vigorous quarantine, still the Canadian
authorities are not taking even- ordinary
precautions to prevent the introduction
of contagion. Nor' aro ; the American
authorities on the' Pacific coast-paying
that attention to regulatory measures as
would seem wise. " It would appear an
easy matter for the cholera to be intro
duced in The Pacific Northwest through
British Columbia, and ordinary pru
dence would suggest that quarantine
measures be-. put ia force along our
northern frontier, and ui the various
The question ia often asked, what is
cholera? the fearful ' epidemic that' is
now decimating the cities of Europe
and Western Asia. The health officer
of New York says the first and invaria
ble symptom of the disease is diarrhea.
The collapse which follows it generally
comes in a day or two,' but a certain
diagnosis of - a suspicious' . case can - be
made without waiting for the appear
and of secondary" symptoms. It is
essentially different from many other,
contagions diseases in that infection is
possible only when the disease germ, is
communicated to the stomach of the
person exposed.' The mere presence of !
an infected person in a community does
not directly endanger those in the vicin
ity. If the disease germ does not some
how or other find its way to. the stom
ach they run no risk.." The trouble is
that, there are so many . ways in which
the germ may be taken into the stom
ach. It may find its way there by
means of polluted water or food.
- A person may touch bis hand to some
infected object, and Unwittingly convey
the germ - to his stomach when eating.
There are various other ways of produc
ing infection, and only the greatest care
and thoughtfulness on the part of those
exposed, can place them beyond the
reach of danger, j The period of incuba-gKR-ff
from twenty-four, hours to three days, it
makes it certain that no infected person
can reach this ' country before active
symptoms have manifested themselves.
Hence a primary case is certain to ..de
velop before a vessel has reached quar
antine. Secondary cases, those con
tracted on the vessel, often develop be
fore the vessel reaches port, . and it is
not impossible that even ' tertiary cases
would be discoverable' by the health of
ficer. - - " ' w...
Damages from Locomotives.
Walla Walla Statesman. - Friday aft
ernoon, sparks from a passing engine on
the narrow gnage railroad, set hre to a
stubblefield of Mr. J. Cochran, about
six or seven miles- from this city. It
communicated to Milt Aldricb's fine
peach orchard, which was almost en
tirely destroyed, and considerable fenc
ing was also burned. - Just what the
loss is could not be learned, but it is
considerable. -From Mr. Chris. Sturm,
a reporter learns that fires earned by-
sparks from locomotives along this road
are of almost daily occurrence,' from the
fact that there are no spark-catchers on
the engines. This is a dangerous men
ace to property along the line, and steps
should be taken at once to Bee that it is
remedied.' i' . : . '.

Fospil Journal. It is said -that "the
course of true love never runs smooth,1
all's well that ends well ;" both saws are
truly applicable in the Aldorson-New'
man romance. Tomorrow Alderson goes
to Condon to get a license from the
county clerk, and the last scene in the
dama will be enacted on Sunday, Sep
tember 4, at 11 o'clock a. m,, in the
Baptist church, when the Rev.. James
Howcton will perfect with the marriage
rite the indissolable bond of love which
now links together Scott Alderson and
May" Newman. . Everybody is invited
to the marriage ceremony. A general
feeling of rejoicing prevades the town
and everyone is glad that a seeming
tragedy has been eo happily converted
into a comedv.
