Speaking of patent medicines, the
Judge eays: "I wish to deal fairly and
honorably with all, and when I find 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
V Liver Cure, and while 1 am o 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
inBrights disease, and as an alterative
for the blood, or to correct the action of
the stomach and bowels, it is a very su
perior remedy, and beats anything I
ecr tried. " J. B. Nelson,

Syn Fhaxcisco, Oct. 1. Sheriff Cun
ningham of Stockton, to whom informa
tion was given yesterday concerning the
action of Evans and Sontag the train
robbers, believes they will attempt to
reach San Francisco and escape by eea.
He has planned accordingly and has a
hope of capturing the desperadoes. The
information given by the rancher, W.
D. Wright, who lives on the road be
tween Tuolumne City and Grayson, is
to the effect that the roblers came to
his house about 10 a. m. Thursday. He
srys : "They were on horseback, and
came from the south. The animals
seemed blown, and evidently had hard
work. Evans asked if I could give them
something to eat, I invited them into
the house and had my wife cook some
breakfast. Before eating, Sontag took
the horses into the barn and fed them.
The men made a hearty meal, and then
asked for a bed. Evans kept watch
while Sontag slept, and visa versa.
They remained atmy place for over two
hours and seemed as unconcerned as
possible, Chough always on the alert and
watchful for an attack. When they left
the house they forced me to take my
wife and children to a room in the sec
ond storv which has no window and lock
them in. Then I was made to. accom
pany them some few miles along the
road to the northwest. About three
miles from my house they took me into
a field and tied me, to a tree 'saying : We
are sorry to do this, but doubtless you
will be found in a few' hours.' With
that they left me and rode off. Evans
had his left arm bound up with strips of
his shirt at a point just below the shoul
der. He had seemingly been wounded
in the last meeting at the cabin. It
must have been another two hours before
I could get loose, and I came at once to
Stockton to notify Sheriff Cunningham."
No Furtiier Communication With Ameri
can Forts at Present.
San Fbancisco, Oct: 1. A Panama
dispatch announces the intentions of the
Columbia authorities in the matter of
closing communication with ports of
America, since the appearance of cholera
in New York. It has been extended to
all vessels sailing from the Atlantic
ports of the United States subsequent to
the 12th. The United States mail
steamship Newport which arrived at
Panama from New York yesterday has
been admitted. She will not sail on her
homeward voyage before the 3d, as she
will wait to take up all incoming passen
gers and freight from the Pacific coast.
After her departure no more communi
cation will be held with outside, ports
daring the prevalance , of the cholera.
This, is considered absolutely neceseary,
as there. Are, no, means of establishing
quarantine, in Panama. . The British
and French niuristers , protested . Th e
Royal mall steamship Atratio, which ar
rived at Savinalla after the declaration
was made that the port was closed to
foreign vessels, was not only ordered out
of port, but .the . order , was , em phasized
by three volleys of bullet's from a file of
soldiers. . The shot fell short of the ves

Satceday, Oct. 1, 1892. The Dis
patch says: Mr. M. Callahan, one of
the Tygh . Ridge prosperous farmers,
just returned from Sherman county, and
reports things awful dry, but everybody
putting in a larger acerage than ever.
These Sherman county ; men bave the
grit and go in them.
Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Klinger and Lon
Woodcock, came back Tuesday from
their trip to Klamath Lake ; Louie .re

game ; some of the largest fish stories on
hand that he ever had ; four-horse wag

If the summer must die, it dies out
in beauty and in peace. The cooler
airs that now come stealing in are the
hints and beginnings of the season's
change and they give us some of . the
finest mornings and days of the year.
Singing school opened again last week

Long strings of grain teams in sight
at all hours of the day. More grain
moving from the south than ever before,
and much of it comes this way.
Several loads of hogs went, to market
Wednesday. It is a good plan for farm
ers to make the grain carry itself where
it is most wanted.
"You'll get a thrashing soon," said
the corn to the wheat. . "Better get
thrashed than have' my ears pulled,"
said the wheat to the corn.

Mr. j. B. Manley, of Juniper Flat,
is still making use of the Tygh hill road
to get his grain to market.

Harvesting is pretty much all done,
and the result generally satisfactory.
The big scale is getting right along,
and will be a great improvement.
The Tax on Sugar.
Havana, Oct. I. At a meeting of the
sugar planters association resolutions
were adopted approving all the steps
taken by the board of planters t in their
efforts to secure a reduction of the tax
ation on sugar, and authorizing the
board to continue its efforts to this end.
A dispatch from Prague, Bohemia, states
that this year's crop of sugar beets 1b
expected to be twenty percent, less than
that of 1891. Heavy rains have some
what brightened prospects, but the
prices of raw sugar are still tending
higher. At all events, the exportation
of sugar from Bohemia will fall consid
erably below that of last year. ' ' No less
than 2,000,000 hundredweight of sugar
required Is ordered in advance. Bohe
mia will scarcely be able to supply
foreign markets with the quantity of
The Alaska Mirage..
Chicago Herald. Many stories have
been written about mirages and delus
ions, but none have been more interest
ing and curious than that of the Silent
City mirage, which makes its appear
ance near the Pacific glacier, in Alaska.
The discovery of this wonderful mirage
was made by the Indians, who would
tell of the city which is built in the
clouds. The mirage can be seen in the
early part of June from 5 to 6 p. m. It
rises from the side of the Pacific glacier.
It first appears like a heavy mist, and
soon .becomes clearer, and one can dis
tinctly see the specter city, well defined
streets aud trees, tall spires, huge and
old-shaped buildings, which appear to
be ancient mosques or cathedrals. It is
a city which would seem to contain at
least 25,000 or 30,000 inhabitants. As
yet no one has been able to identify it,
although several have claimed to recog
nize the place-. . There is no city like it
in Alaska, nor in any country about it
for thousands of miles.. , .

Portland, OcJ, 1. The possibilities
are that the Inland Empire will soon be
connected with Asiatic ports by a steam-
snip une via. .rortiana. .negotiations
are already on foot for the . establish
ment of such a line, and it will be in
working order just as soon as an under
taking of this magnitude can be put
under way. The object of the projec- :
tors, the Telegram says, is to establish a
fast- passenger and freight steamship
line between Portland and Japan and.
China. One of the parties interested in
the matter is J. W. Miller, a wealthy
cattle man of Oregon. He has just re- -turned
from the Orient, where he has
been looking at the cattle interests of
that country, with an eye to the practi
cability of establishing a market for the
beeves and mutton of the Inland Em
pire. He states that in a short time the
proposition will be in shape to admit of
full details being given to the public.

make one of the . finest transpacific

the Ottawa authorities in the matter of

Morning Chronicle says: "The Cana

Ottawa journalists regarding the dis

will not be out of place to remind them
that in dealing with such a powerful
Fnrnnean imupr as RnstiYn. it i not hv
any means the part of a diplomatist to

British cruiser sent to Behring sea is to

cruiser would not by any means have
been chosen, as the sole force sent to the
sea by the' British government. Lord
Roseberry clearly is content to adopt
the more reasonable course of awaiting
explanations from St. Petersburg."
Victory For The Pilots.
New Yobk, Oct. 1. Hon. B. F. Tiacy,
secretary of the navy, has issued the fol
lowing order: "All existing orders and
regulations restricting the employment
of pilots by commanding officers of ves
sels of war are hereby revoked.
Commanding officers will employ
pilots wherever . in their judge
ment their employment is necessary."
This is not only an order needful to the
safety of the service, and will be taken
as a relief to naval commanders, but is
also a victory for the pilots. . AVhile per
sonally it may i ml nee some commanders
to navigate their own ships in and out of
dangerous harbors says the World, the
majority " will doubtless be only too
fflad to nsnanfl the resnonfrihilitv for. ac
cidents, which are liable to happen even
with expert pilots aboard. .. .
