Last June, Dick Crawford brought his
twe ve montlis old child, suffering from
infantile diarrhoea, to me. It had been
weaned at four months old and being
ickly everything ran through it like
water through a sieve. I give it the
usual treatment in such cases, but with
out benefit. The child kept growing
thinner until it weighed but little more
than when born, or perhaps ten pounds.
I then started the father to giving
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy. Before one bottle
ol the 25 cent size had been used, a
marked improvement was seen and its
continued use cured the child. Its
weakness nnd puny constitution disap

the child's life was saved by this remedy.

UREWSOME SIGHTS IN A MINE.
Tbe Trip Down m leep Shaft Foil of
Thrill to the Tenderfoot.
Going; down into the mine is indeed
a thrilling experience and one rather
overwhelming- to the "tenderfoot,"
says a writer in Cassier's Magazine.
Enveloped in suits of waterproof, with
hats of oilskin and provided with can
dles, a party ready for the descent pre
sents a grewsome spectacle, reminding
one forcibly of certain conceptions of
Dore. The cage, which serves for both
passengers and freight, rises to a level
with the floor of the shafthouse, and
is simply a platform of wood vith up
rights and framing of iron. This fits
closely in the shaft, being lowered and
raised by means of machinery puzzling
enough to the interested stranger,
with its drum, sheaves, cable and vari
ous safety appliances. To take a posi
tion on that little square of wood, feel
ing that on this machinery, "which
does sometimes break, you know,"
hangs all one's hope, requires some
courage. Much comfort is derived
from the assurance of the foreman that
this same cajfe has safely carried down
and up all the delvers below with never
an accident yet. With the warning,
"elbows in," the cage drops. With a
gasp one reaches wildly about to find
nothing to hold to in that dmp dark
ness, growing so dense as that square
"hole of daylight" diminishes so rapid
ly, and down we glide through trick
ling waters without jar and in utter
silence till, with a thud, the cage stops,
two thousand five hundred feet under
The dim candle light casts weird
shadows as we follow the superin
tendent along a narrow gallery cut in
the igneous rock to connect the vein
with the shaft. At the intersection
another long gallery extends to the
right and left, but its parallel walls
are smooth, often highly polished, at
times four feet apart; again more, but
always with an inclination to the
vertical. These are the faces of the
fissured rock between which, over
head and below, is the vein matter.
Through the gloomy darkness we pick
our way cautiously along the narrow
plank, resting on ties laid over the
gntterway. Below us the water rushes
down to the shaft, emptying into the
"sump," a continuation of the- shaft
below the lowest level, serving as a
well out of which the water is lifted
by the great pumps, whose continual
beat, up ana down, up and down, with
monotonous regularity, breaks the si
lence like the throb of some great hid
den heart. Climbing a ladder, or,
rather, five ladders for there is a plat
form at every twenty feet in Egyptian
darkness, illumined only by the light
of a candle, with ice cold water dripping
from each round and trickling along
one's arm and a small torrent from
the tarpaulin hat down one's back, is
apt to dampen, if not to eradicate for
ever, any lingering fancy for a miner's
lingo's Greatness Still Goes Unrecognized
by Bronze or Marble.
A monument to Gounod is decided
upon. A subscription of twenty thou
sand dollars was raised easily, rapidly
and triumphantly. The sculptor is
selected, and soon Paris will be en
dowed with the 6tatue of the com
poser who will only be known to fu
ture generations as the author of one
great creation, namely: "Faust," and
the perpetrator thereafter of various
charming works, "Mireille" and
"Eomeo and Juliet," for example, and
also of large quantities of more 01 less
dismal failures. No one will claim
that Gounod was the greatest com
poser o E his day; yet he is to . be glori
fied while the ashes of Victor Hugo lie
unburied in their dusty cofiln, tossed
carelessly into the vaults of the Panth
eon and covered with the moldering
remains of the magnificent floral trib
utes that were sent to do honor to his
funeral, says the Paris correspondent
of the Philadelphia Telegraph.
A statue of Victor Hugo was decided
upon also, but the subscriptions lan
guished and dwindled until they
stopped at an amount of twenty-five
hundred dollars". So the literary giant
of our generation is only commemo
rated by his own great works, and his
neglected coffln is left unremarked,
save by the. horrified or indifferent
eyes of the countless tourists who drift
to the Pantheon to see the new fres
coes, painted by the great artists of
France by order of the republic, and
who incidentally explore the vaults of
the huge temple.
Until not very long ago one huge va
cant space was visible at the Pantheon,
among the completed panels the,t sur
rounded it. As was courteous to so
great an artist, the government had
offered a section of the Pantheon to
Meissonier to decorate. : Meissonier
instantly accepted, although perfectly
conscious he could not paint one of
those huge frescoes any more than a
fly could fire a cannon; but being an
artistic dog in the manger, he could
neither do it himself nor would he al
low anyone else to take the work. Of
course, since his death it is satisfac

A Celestial "Barker."
- An Egyptian shopkeeper had a deity
to whom he' offered sacrifice every
morning, and whose duty it was in re
turn for this reverence to stand in
front of the shop during the day, a sort
of celestial "barker," and direct the
attention of the people passing by to
the shop and its contents.

The Gate City of the Inland Empire is situated at the head

perous city. '
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agricultural
and grazing country, its trade reaching as far south as Summer
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 5,000,000 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
