A LONG PROCESSION
of diseases start from a torpid liver
and impure . blood. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery cures ev
ery one of them. It prevents them,
too. Take it, as you ought, when
you feel the first symptoms (lan-
. guor, loss ot appetite, dullness, de
pression) and you'll save yourself
from something serious.
In building up needed flesh and
strength, and to purify and enrich
the blood, nothing can equal tho
"Discovery." It invigorates the
fiver and kidneys, promotes all the
bodily functions, and brings back
health and vigor. For Dyspepsia,
liver Complaint," Biliousness,-and
all Scrofulous, Skin and Scalp Dis
eases, it is the only remedy that's
guaranteed to benefit or cure, or
the money is refunded.

kind of it. lias utilized moot of the ::niinal
forms found iu tho mciiagerio cud this fan
cies of heraldry; to ;pve a rrutesuuc pietur
esqueness to the- carrousel. In firn, thi.
wooden animals generally approximate sc
closely to their original models that one
has no diftieulty in recoguiziiis them. The
elophaut's trunk prevents his bciiir looked

dor it perfectly easy to dislinjruisii lii.a i roin
the jackass, and anybody who will takw the
troublo to observe Jhc antlers upon the
deer will not make the mi;;take of con
founding hici with the horse. 15ut. there i V
point m th'r iirodui'tion when difference
are far from plain. That is when they aw
built up for tho carvers.' Kach animal is
made up of a series of pieces cf tvro-iuch
tmiViiir or liasswood plank, hVmlv srlwed rrv
gecner so as 10 leave plenty ot wooa ioi
chiselinjr and gouging away for develop
ment of the desired form, yet keep the in
side of the body hollow. At this stage the
camel looks something like this:
"Very heavy basswood planks are glued
on the sides of the built-up pile. Legs, cars
and heads arc sawed out in apparently
shapeless chunks of wood, and arc attached
to the built-up bodies, either before or after
carving, according to circumstances.
The carvers are skillful workmen, deft in
wieldinjr mallet, chisel and gouge, and under
their rapid manipulation the clumsy pile of
angles is speedily rounded aild shaped. But
it is not every carver who can do this work.
In fact, those who can arc very scarce. One
must have a natural talent for it, somtahing
of the sculptor's rrenius, to develop by his
keen tools the llguro of an animal from tho
clumsy mass of wood laid before him, and
to give its features expression. Expression !
That is where tlicy just turn themselves
loose. Their employer docs not interfere
with their giving free rein to their fancy,
and such excited, startled and enraged ex
pressions as they put upon these beasts are
often both amazing and amusing. The boss
is proud of their achievements in this line.
He says: "There is a drowsy, conservative
tone about the English animals, while ours
are sharp, animated, vigorous, vivacious."
Oh, yes, they are; very vivacious, indeed !
And even if you have some doubts whether
tho lion is roaring with laughter? or with
rage, j-ou at least have the delight of know
ing that he is doing something, and doing it
very earnestly, too, with no 4i drowsy, con
servative tone" about him.
From, the hands of the carvers tho ani
mals go to the paint shop, where they first
.receive a heavy coat of brown body color,
and they are tinted up with as free and un
trammeled fancy as animated the genius
that gavo them their vivacious expressions.
The results may well rattle the mind of a
child that has preconceived tho idea based
upon observations in the menageries, but
perhaps nature would have made the world
much gayer and more gorgeous if she had
had the chance to take some points from
theso carrousel animals. Strict fidelity to
nature may obtain in the blue, or oven the
green, unicorn, for aught that anybody
knows to tho contrary, and possibly the
liippogrifT is born with ail that gilding on
lain ; but what shall be said of tho carmine
lion or the roso-pink elephant . Finally the
animals that should have hairy tails are
provided with them portions of real ones
cut from cattle and then .they . aro all
boxed up for shipment along with tho awn
ing and hand organ, and tho sectional plat
form, and tho central pole from which the
whole machine is to depend, and tho cog
wheels that aro to make it go around, and
tho guys and braces that are to prevent it
from falling down, and tho boxing to hide
the perspiring man who turns the crank,
and the littlo swoi-ds to jab at rings with,
and the iron. riujrs to be jabbed at, with the
brass one that gives a free ride next time
to tho boy lucky enough to seize it.
Carrousels aro only mado to order, and it
takes two or three months to get one up,
according to its size. A little one, supplied
ouly with cifrht horses and two chariots, can
bo frot complete for from $300 to $350, ac
cording to finish. From that the scale for
choico goes up to the mammoth concern
forty feet in diameter, with eighteen arms,
carrying thirty-five horses, two camels, two
elephants, two deer, two lions, two jack
asses nnd three double-seat dragon char
iots, which may cost as much as fi,500, in
dependent of the steam-engine to drive it
cud the music machinery. The organs
range in price from i 100 to $2,200, and the
extra cylinders accompanying . them from
$35 to slil each.
Some years this establishment turns out
forty or fifty carrousels. And they are
sent uli over the world. One has been sent
from here to Melbourne, Australia; another
is just being shipped to Port-au-Prince, and
an ext ranrdinarily vivacious set of animals
are now being created to go to Kingston,

supplied, to take the place of broken ones,
or to stimulate, by novelty, the flagging in

A GIRL SNAKE-KILLER.
WltU a Stick, She Destroyed Five Cos
- perneads. ...
Clara Greth, a fifteen-year-old girl
living with her parents on the outskirts
of Heading, Pa., who had some thrill
ing experiences with rattlesnakes and
copperheads last summer, was sitting
on the front steps the other morning,
when she spied a big copperhead sun
ning himself on the' sloping bank oppo
site the house.
She was plucky and self-reliant, and
without telling anybody she determined
to kill it. Taking up a shovel from the
coal shed, she ran over to the bank, j
where she found three copperheads in- I
stead of one, and they all showed fight.
She quickly dispatched two- of them,
bat the third and largest one repeated- J
ly leaped at her. After a short Strug-
gle,' however, she succeeded in stretch
ing it out dead with its companions,
says the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette.
As soon . as she could recover her
breath she examined the ground care
fully and came to the conclusion that
the snakes must have come out of a
large hole beside an old fence post. So
she kept an eye on the place during the
rest of the morning, and late in the aft
ernoon was delighted to see a big cop
perhead come up and coil himself in the"
sunshine near the post hole.
She crept up behind it noiselessly and
contrived to place herself between it
and. the post hole before the reptile was
aware of her presence. She then struck
it with a heavy stone,, but missed her
mark, whereupon the snake sprang
wickedly at her bare feet. She jumped
back lightly, just in time to escape the
Wow. Then, before the enraged rep
tile could strike again, she hurled an
other stone at it, this time with truer
aim, and broke its back.
But no sooner had she made sure of
that snake than a fif thone, bigger than
any of the others, made its appearance.
It fought hard, but she attacked it fear
lessly. No more stones of effective size
were near at hand, so the brave girl
picked tip a stout stick, and with this
she tackled her adversary at close quar
ters. In a short time she came out best
witli it, too.
Then she proceeded to lay the snakes
out in a row, .with their heads -'sloping
down the bank. When her father,
David Greth, returned .from work that
avening and saw the five reptiles lying
there, he was thunderstruck, and could
?arcely believe that his little daughter
had effected the sltmghter alone.

The Gate City of the Inland Empire is situated at the head
of navigation on the Middle Columbia, and is a thriving, pros
perous city. .
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agricultural
and grazing country, its trade reaching as far south as Bummer
Lake, a distance of over two hundred miles.
The Largest Wool Market. .
. The rich grazing country along the eastern slope of the Cas
cades furnishes pasture for thousands of sheep, the wool from
which finds market here.
The Dalles is the largest original wool shipping . point in
America, about $,000,000 pounds being shipped last year.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia, yielding
this year a revenue of thousands of dollars, which will be more
than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickitat valley find market
here, and the country south and east has this year filled tha
warehouses, and nil available storage places to overflowing with
their products.' . ' .
It is the richest city of its size on the coast and its money is
scattered over and is being used to develop more farming country '
than is tributary to any other city in Eastern Oregon.
