Michigan has for live years past had
upon its statute books a provision de
signed to promote the use of wide tires
upon the wagons used upon its highways.
In place of compulsory enactment it was
deemed wise to niakeit forthe pecuniary
interest of the users-of the roads to use
wide instead of narrow tirap, and a
premium was accordingly put upon sucli
use in the remission of a part of the
highway tax. The law providesthat all
persons who shall use only lumber
wagons on the public highways of the
state with rims not less than three in
ches in width, for hauling loads exceed
ing 800 pounds in weight, shall annually
receive a rebate of oue-fourth of their
assessed highway tax, provided, how
ever, that such rebate shall not exceed
in any one year three days' road tax to
any one person. Citizens are required
to make an affidavit before an overseer
of highways to the use of such wagons
as specified, upon which affidavit they
are credited with the amount of rebate
of their highway tax. The department
of state reports that this legislation has
been found satisfactory to the people and
beneficial in its results.
The Antelope Herald tells of two cow
ardly fellows on horseback who rode up
to the residence of W. F. Guy ton, on
Mackin Flat, Sherman county, last
Friday and ordered the hired girl, who
happened to be all alone except an in
fant belonging to Mr. Guyton, to get
dinner for them. The request was
cheerfully complied with. After they
had eaten they handed the girl some
money to pay for their dinner, and while
the girl va9 in the act of making the
necessary change the men espied that
he had about fll) in her purse, and
just as she was handing them the
change one of the men snatched the
purse out of her hands. They then
seized her .and made her go up stairs,
after which they locked the stair door
and proceeded to inspect the household
valuables. After taking everything
worth taking the villians jumped on
their horses and rode away on a keen
gallop. The girl wa3 not released until
the school children came home late in
the evening. The thieves have not
- been seen nor heard of ever since.

Purify your blood, and you have it.
With pure, rich blood, an active
liver, good appetite and digestion,
the hue of health follows. Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
gives you all of them. It is the
blood-purifier. There's no lack of
them, but there's none like this.
It's guaranteed to accomplish all
that's claimed for it. In all dis
eases arising from torpid liver and
impure blood, it benefits or cures,
or the money is refunded. With
an ordinary medicine, it couldn't
be done. But this isn't an ordi
It is the cheapest blood -purifier
eold, through druggists, because you
only pay for the good you get.
Can you ask more ?
The "Discovery" acts equally
well all the year round.

Referring to the advantages of a ship
loading at Astoria, over Tacoma, the
masters of fiftv vessels signed an article
in which every one of them said fresh
water kills the barnacles and sea weeds
which soon drop ofl. One firm declared
that lying at i he dock or in the stream
at Astoria cleaned the bottoms of their
ships so as to shorten their trips home
"from three to five weeks." "Ship
owners," wrote one firm, "prefer fresh
water harbors, and this is an important
factor in chartering, but as a rule, I
think they are taxed for the advantage
they gain wheu they go up to Portland,
as the river pilotage, lighterage and
towage are very heavy items of useless
Tho Fence of the Future.
There are a number of strong points in
favor of the Tuna Hedge as the fence of
the future, the advantage of this kind of
a fence may be briefly inumerated as
follows : It becomes a perfect barrier
against' all kinds of domestic animals
after three years growth ; does not eap
or impoverish the ground, beinga stnet-
Iv atmospheric plant, ana win not grow
from the seed or by cutting the roots
hence will not spread, it grows only to a
certain uniform height and therefore
does not require trimming, it has been
thoroughly and successfully tested in
northern climates and does not kill out
in the winter time, it serves the double
DurDOSe of usefulness and ornamen
tation, as it is an evergreen and blooms
during three months ot the year, an in-
vitation is extended to thoroughly test
its merits, and every one will be con
vinced that it possesses all the advant
nsres claimed for it. Messrs. Johnson &
Payne are now taking orders for the
Tuna Hedge and have met with uniform
success. Anv one wishing a living grow
ing fence something that will not spread
and will be a fence for all time to come
should give their orders now and get
their fence started this fall.

A boatload of horses drowned years
ago in the Ohio river is now credited
with suggesting one of the most valuable
inventions extant. The invention con
sists of simple collapsible cylinders,
which being placed inside of a sunken
vessel and inflated with air raise it to
the surface, when it may be floated
hundreds of miles to a dry dock for re
yaire. A close corporation composed of
the three Grant brothers, John, Joseph
and Jessee, and four real estate men own
the patent covering the device and have
applied for patents in all countries where
obtainable and where there are shipping
