Tne Qalcke.t Way to Ouo Cold.
Do you wish to know the quickest way
to cure a cold? Wre will tell you. To
cure a cold quickly, it must be treated
before the cold has become settled in the
By stem. The first symptoms of a cold
is a dry, loud coueh and sneezing. The
cough is soon followed by watery ex
pectoration -and the sneezine by a pro
fuse watery discharge from the nose. In"
severe cases there is a thin white coating
on the tongue. What to do? It is only
necessary to take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in double does every hour.
That will greatly lessen the severity of
the cold and in many cases will effectu
ally counteract It, and care. what, would
have been a severe cold within one or
two days time. - Try it and be convinced

PEOSPUCT IOB ALASKA'S VVTUBE
rbat the. Country Waa Made For In
tho Estimation jtt Those Who
' . II are Been Over lt
.Mr.""JohnX.'Hutcbison, of New York,
who was one of the party who recently
made the trip overland to Europe, is a
snow-blockaded guest at The Umatilla
today. Jji company - with, a party of
eight, civil engineers who were; em
ployed two years ago to make a prelim
inary survey between Vancouver, B. C,
and Cape Prince of - Wales, Alaska, and
report on the practicability of building
a railroad from the former city' to the
cape, he has spent the past eighteen
months in running the lines and obtain
ing. levels and the general topography
of. the country between the points
named. Twoof his companions, James
Higgins and Robert Faulkner, remained
at one of their .permanent camps near
the cape, and the remainder of the party
accompanied Mr. Hutchison to Van
couver. - .
This party have passed over a' region'
never, leior ex ppru. rrom junenu
the-party proceeded on- an-"air line, " as
nearly as possible' paralleling the
Alaskan coast west of Mts.' Fairweather
and Elias, bat not touching the . coast
proper at "an y.point. ' Copper river was
encountered '120; miles . from Prince
William sound and southwest of Mt
Wrangel." It occupied the time of the
party 90 ,days to attain this point. A
permanent- camp ..was established at
this place and .na'medf Beatrice. The!
river hero ia navigable with' its waters
very smooth and placid for a dis
tance of 100 miles, but it' suddenly
breaks off into a series of rapids 45 miles
southwest, toward the sound, which
continues for 10 miles when it again be
comes navigable. .The next point the
party aimed, for was., on., the. Sushina
river, which proved to be more ragged
and harder to traverse than had . beep
anticipated, the party having to scale
about a dozen - small glaziers or crop
pings from the main Alaskan 'range. It
occupied nearly two months to get to
this crossing, but a portion of the time
was consumed in running two "lines or
levels. . . ; - .-.-I -: ". V . . ' J.
' Mr. Hutchison says he is at liberty to
say that the report which will be sub
mitted by Engineer Faulkner to the pro
moters will clearly' establish and fully
recommend the practicability of the
route ; for an all-rail line between
Vancouver and ; Cape Prince- of Wale
His report will also state that it can be
kept open and operated the whole - year
lln all" this ' route comparatively easy
grades can be attained, Vincent pass, in
the Alaskans, being the hardest to over
come; but the altitude is no higher than
.that of Stampede pass on the Northern
Pacififc railway. As to the strait he con
cludes that. the-'26i r. miles from one
mainland to the other, by utilizing eight
islands the cantilever bridge can be sue
cessfully brought into requisitiqn. -In
two places from little . or lower Diamede
island no modem bridge would be ample
to span, as each one would be five times
as long as the main span in the Brooklyn
bridge, bat he is of the opinion that
doable-deck pontoon could be used at'
those prices. At this point -he reports
mat mere is little or no danger irom
icebergs, as 40 miles -up the strait ail
large icebergs are stranded or run
agronnd. With stone breakwater pro
tection to part of the piers the bridge
would be secure. ; Of course the pantoons
ott .floatiqg bridges referred to would
lutve io be built to swing and be worked
by steam power. He "also reports ' that
there, is no," quicksand - to cpqtend "with
or any submarine obstacles; the , bottom
of the strait being all that could be de
sired for pier foundations. ' , . ;

steeL :It . has: . . double -$pt torn for the
distance of 190 feet, extending for the
length .covered by -the-miichiiiery-and

feature is provided to enable it - to cope
successfully with vessels 'of the heaviest
armor and armament.. Its principal
dimensions are . Length on road -line,
348 feet; breadth .extreme. 69 feet. 3
inches ; draught of water (level keel), 24
feet ; displacement, 10,283 tons ; maxi
mum speed, 16.? knots; sustained sea
speed, 15.0 ; knots f-, . indicated ; horse
power, 9,000 tons,; normal coal supply,
400 tons. Her .armament is : - Four 13-
inch breech-loading rifles ; . eight 8-inch
breech-loading rifles; nine". 6-inch
breech -loading rifles; twenty 6-pounder
rapid fire-guns; four gatling guns; six
torpedo tubes. There are . six powerful
search lights arranged alone the side to
locate the: enemy at night and to guard
against small-boat attacks under cover
of darkness.; The complement of twelve
boats and one balsa are stowed well
above the flashes of the guns and are
handled by means of powerful cranes.
The thickest armor plates ever oat on
an American war-ehip have been plated
on the Indiana. The plates which are
of nickel-steel, are fourteen inches

We bad rather throw aside this pea
forever than to write a word to discour
age any woman who is conscientiously
striving to earn, a position on the stage;
but there are other women some in the
profession,, some in the audience to
whom it is grossly unfair to pat forth an
Inexperienced amateur, as a star. Con
sider, ladies and gentlemen,- what a poor;
miserable art that of acting- would be if
anybody could acquire it in a few lea
tons, in & year or so, from a private box
across the footlights f o the center of the
stage. '- - It takes a longer time to learn to
be a carpenter or to play a piano, to be
a dressmaker or to paint a picture, to be
a typewriter or to cut hair properly.
than amatetlrs who "are now willing to
bestow upon the art which includes, em
ploys and dignifies all other arts from
statuesque posing to wig wearing. If
acting could be taught in a day it would
not be so well paid nor so highly esteem
ed, and good acting would not be so un:
common. Stephen Fiske in Spirit of the
