Joseph V. Dory, of Warsaw, III., was
rmnhled with rheumatism and tried a
number of different remedies, but says
none of them seemed to do him any
good; but finally he got hold of one
that speedily cured him. He was much
pleased with it, and ielt sure that others
Bimilarlv afflicted would like to know
what the remedy was that cured him.
He states for the benefit of the public
that it is called Chamberlain's Pain
Balm. For sale by Blakeley & Hough
When Gen. Cornwallis surrendered
in Yorktown his army of Englishmen
consisted, according to military reports,
of 7,247 soldiers and 840 sailors 8,087 in

in use on American railways is 32,193,
or four times as many as Cornwallis'
soldiers and sailors. The number of
cars is 1,300,000.
"The people of this vicinity insist on
having Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
and do not want any other," says John
V. Bishop, of Portland Mills, Indiana.
That is right. They know it to be su-
perior to any other for colds, and as a
oreventive and cure for croup, and why
should they not insist upon having it.

A Card to the Public.
I would respectfully inform the pub
lic that I have been able to procure a
pretty fair outfit for raising or moving
houses, and am willing to do that kind
of work at reasonable figures. But I do
wish it distinctly understood that, after
looking at a job, I am to be the sole
judge of the price to be set upon the
work that I am to undertake, or may do.
If there is any person who may think
that there is big money to be made at
house moving in The Dalles, by doing
work for less than I can do it, I would
advise him to prepare himself, by buy
ing tools, and reap some of the rich har
vest. In conclusion I will say that if I
am called upon to do any work in my
Jine, I shall endeavor, in the future, as
in the past, to give entire satisfaction in
all respects to my employer.

phone. ' He is a white-haired man sev
enty-four years of age, and for forty-
five of these has been connected witn
lft.riml work of various kinds. The
telephone, he says, was a discovery in
which a colony of Wisconsin bullfrogs
played a prominent part. The story of
his minims has been told before in the
accounts of the litigations in which ie
has figured. The other day he retold them
before a rough painting which nangs
on the wall of his office. It shows a
swampy landscape, stretching into the
foreground of which is a telegraph line.

into the CTOund. Another wire runs
from this disk to a horseshoe magnet,
about which, supported on wooden up
rights, is a piece of iron stretching
across the-poles of the magnet. The
wire which is connected with the latter

is fastened to a ground wire. Near the

the doctor. "We ran 6hort of poles on

was left. The use of the magnet and
the bar over it was to tell me -whether
the wire had been struck by lightning.
The device was inclosed m a glass box
and buried under leaves.
"In a few days I was informed that
a peculiar crackling noise was heard at
the other end of the wire at iiacine. 1
visited the box and heard a slight
noise. I adjusted the metal piece over
the magnets finer, and immediately
heard the croaking of frogs issue from
the box. The telephone had whispered
its secret. ,
"I began to develop it at once. Boxes
were made ana piacea one arjove tne
other and one used for listening and
the other for talking. The boxes were
known as talking boxes. People used
them to order their groceries by, and
we carried on conversations over a dis
tance of several miles. The volume of
sound in the original box was as great
as that developed in the modern tel
ephone and the latter Instrument does
not differ in the least from my original
discovery. All of its principles are em-.
bodied in the Bell instrument."
Dr. Cushman says after the injunction
tying up the American Cushman Tele
phone company was issued, it was
found that the court's edict did not stop
the manufacture of the instrument
which he hid elaborated out of the
glass box which gave out the tidings
that sound could be transmitted over a
wire. He went south and a telephone
exchange was fitted with his instru
ments at a point in Arkansas.
"We have recently fitted up another
exchange in this state," said he, "and
have besides gone on selling the instru
