Majority of the Board in Favor of a
Portage Road at The Dalles.'
Senator Dolph, who has seen the re
port of the board of engineers upon the
improvement of the Columbia at The
Dalles, says the, two most experienced
engineers upon the board. Colonel Men
dell and Mr. Alexander, adhere to the
plan reported by the former board of a
boat railway, changing the location to
the Oregon side of the river. He says,
further, that a majority of the board re
ports in favor of a portage road as a tem
porary expedient, submitting two esti
mates of cost. One of the roads is built
so that the roadbed can be utilized in the
construction of a boat railway, and one
for a road built without reference to the
permanent improvement. Any improve
ment is to be located on the Oregon side.
The majority of the board recom
mends a canal for a permanent im
provement, but both the majority and
minority report that a boat railway is
practicable. They greatly reduce the
estimated cost of a boat railway, fixing
it at about $2,200,000, nearly three-quarters
of a million less than the former
Ask your dealer for Mexican Silver
Dodges for Trout.
A correspondent of the Fishing Gazette
(English) informs it that some Irish
anglers always impale a worm on a small
hook just above the minnow's nose, and
find it invaluable to stimulate trout in
an indifferent mood. Another dodge
practiced in Ireland is as follows : Tie
a fly with pretty large wings, something
like a March Brown ; put one shot on
the line a few inches above the fly;
thread on the hook a caddis drawn from
the case (the larvse of the down or roofed
winged- flies), and going cautiously to
some deep pool, drop in your lure, let
ting it sink to the bottom and Btay there
a second or two ; then draw up steadily,
and the big trout, taking it for a new
born insect rising to the surface, dash at
it savagely. Both these hints are val

Dr. M. J. Davis is a prominent physi
cian of Lewis, Cass county, Iowa, and
has been actively engaged in the practice
of medicine at that place for the past
thirty-five years. On the 26th of May,
while in Des Moines en route to Chicago,
he was suddenly taken with an attack of
diarrhoea. Having sold Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
for the past seventeen years, and know
ing its reliability, he procured a 25 cent
bottle, two doses of which completely
cured him. The excitement and change
of water and diet incident to traveling
often produce, a diarrhoea. Every one
should procure a bottle of this Remedy
before leaving home. For sale by
