We know everyone will sympathize
with Sheriff Ward when they read the
annexed account of his difficulties. He
was met when about half way to Dufur
by Mr. M. J. Anderson. Ward was in
his sleigh, pounding the horses over the
back, while the vehicle was grating
along on the ground most of the time,
hitting rocks and big frozen lumps of
mud. The sheriff didn't look as though
he was enjoying himself a bit, and An
derson said only the most pleasant
things he could think of. Previous to
the-meeting point Anderson could see
where the sleigh had made wide detours
from the road to travel in patches of
snow and he says it was only a question
of a couple of miles when the sleigh
will have been stranded entirely, unless
Ward walks. The sheriff will return in
a wagon probably, but whether the
Bleigh will is more a matter of specula
tion. ' ...
The persistent cough which usually

Cough Remedy. Mr. W. A. McGuire, of
McKay, Ohio, says: "La Grippe left
me with a severe cough.' After using sev
eral different medicines without relief, I
tried Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
which effected a permanent cure. I have
also iound it to be without an equal for
children when troubled with colds or

Compliments Mr. Chrlsman's Jry er-
Mr. A. Y. Marsh, a leading fruit
grower of this section, writes enthusias
tically of Mr. Chrisman's fruit dryer, to
that gentleman himself. Mr. Marsh
I have been thinking a good deal
about the different fruit dryers this last
fall and winter. I have dried a good
deal of fruit and have seen about all of
the different dryers. I had determined
to build one of the Canson dryers, but
after having seen one of them and the
way they work I must say that your
dryer excels them in every way. In the
first place there is a great. saving of
labor in handling the trays, and it dries
the fruit more evenly, besides saving all
the labor of picking the fruit over and
putting it back. There is another thing
about your dryer that I like, and that is
the way the trays revolve around the
drum. By this method the fruit is
bound to dry evenly. It will not burn,
because if tbe heat is greater in one place
than another, by the trays revolving the
fruit all gets tbe same heat. There is no
doubt about your dryer being the best in
use, if it is built right. I am going to
build one soon and if they would come
and put up one of any other kind on my
place for nothing, I would rather pay
the price of yours than to have any one
of them for nothing. - You may publish
this if you wish, for fruit growing is my
business, have been successful and in
tend to stay with it. I will say one
word more. If anyone has built one of
your dryers and it will not work,. they
ought to get some one to work on it who
understands the plan oi it. It cannot
help but work. Wishing you success I
am, Yours truly,
A. Y. Marsh.

Dufur has been treated to a three-
months siege of revivalists, who have
wrestled long and. earnestly with the
people there. They have not been phe
nomenally successful, owing either to
there being too much of a good thing or
that the town is really a modern Sodom.
While there have been few conversions,
the meetings have been well attended
and an influence for good has been ex
erted in the general good feeling that
has resulted between the evangelists
and people.' Rev. J. W. Jenkins will
especially be always ' welcomed. He is
as unassuming as he. ia brainy, as ear

of the Christian religion are shown up
in their purity at his bands, which re

to the extent of inducing them to "re

In this city, Jan. 24th, 1894. of con

daughter of W. A. Maddron, aged 23
years, 10 months and 20 days.
We are often reminded of the lessons
to be gained by the lives of great men
and women, but no greater lesson of
true nobility can be taught than tbat
exemplified in the life of this young lady
who was called from life yesterday.
Left at the age of 14 years to be a mother
to four children, the youngest a mere
babe, she has fulfilled that mission in a
self-sacrificing, loving manner, although
her&elf almost an invalid ; and under
the most trying circumstances was al
ways cheerful and thoughtful of others.
Not only in her home-life was her sweet
influence felt, but among her neighbors
and friends waa she a ministering angel.
For a number of years she has been a
constant sufferer, but has been confined
to- her bed but two months, and as her
scores of friends part from her it ia with
the assuring thought that "She hath
done what Bhe could." --
AN EXPENSIVE EXPERIENCED '
A Student of Vivisection Who Visited Af.
rlca and Acquired Costly Knowledge.
One of the most curious expeditions
ever planned by man was that once-undertaken
by Dr. J. A. Bunting, of
Portland, says the Lewistown (Me.)
Journal. During all his-life he had
been a closestudent of the philosophy
of digestion, and for the purpose of his
investigations he had that remarkable
Canadian, Alexis St. Martin, in his
care for twenty years. In order to
clinch matters and provide facts for
some of the doubting' Thomases, Dr.
Bunting cast about for some one else
upon whom he might continue to ex
periment. He could think of but one
plan, and that was . to go into Africa,
buy two slaves and operate upon their
stomachs. r By opening the body near
the fifth rib and perforating the
stomach a condition could be produced
similar to that existing in the case of
St. Martin. Therefore the doctor pur
chased his supplies and sailed across
to Tunis in the north of Africa. There
he hired a native chief with forty of
his followers, paying them a liberal
retaining' fee and promising them al
luring largess when the' trip should be
ended. They set forth. The doctor
carried 85,000 in his inside pocket, and
the chief probably lay awake four
nights thinking about the matter. At
any rate on the fifth night he sneaked
into the doctor's tent and, .delivered a
little address at the point of two
pistols. When he had concluded the
doctor passed over his ducats and the
chief- passed over : the border along
with his renegade band. - They helped
themselves to the supplies that suited
their artless and unenlightened tastes.
The doctor came back without a ret
inue and with a deal of experience
that will never appear in a medical

- SERVANTS IN INDIA.
They Are Vastly Different from Those In
- " This Country.
Domestic life in India is without the
annoyance of the servant question,
6ays an exchange. You never need tell
a servant what you want done In that
country. They seem to know it by in
tuition. The ordinary household has
about twelve servants a cook, a wait
er, a sort of valet de chambre and, if
you have two horses, two grooms; one
man to run before you when yon go
out riding1 and take charge of your
horse, another man whose business it
is to collect for your horse's feed the
gTass which grows in a vine-like man
ner upon the roads. . Then in summer
yon require three or . four men who
work the large fans or "punkas" over
you nipht and day while you are walk
ing ana wnue you are sleeping; then
last, but not least, a watchman. -
This last institution is a peculiar one.
If you did not have him you would be
liable to find something stolen every
night. Strangest of all, the only man
who is a successful watchman must be
a thief the caste of a thief. He makes
no pretentions of -being' anything else,
but as lon? as you liave bim in your
employ nothing' will ever be stolen.
While the native Hindoos are very dis
honest, the only way in which to keep
your valuables safe is to give them into
their bands for keeping'. If. one locks
five hundred dollars in his chest one
would be sure that some time or other
one of the servants would steal it; but
if the money is given to a servant he
would guard it with his life. '
