La Grippe, for Golds, Coughs,
AND LUNC TROUBLES,
"Two yea$ ago, I had the grippe,
and it left toe with a cough which gave
me no rest night or day. My family
physician prescribed for me, changing
the medicine as often as he found the
things I had taken were not helping
me, but, in spite of liia attendance, I got
no better. Finally, my husband, -reading
one day of a gentleman who had
had the grippe and was cured by taking
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, procured, for
' me, a bottle of this medicine, and before
I had taken half of it, I was cured. I
nave used the Pectoral for my children
and in my family, whenever we have
needed it, and have found it a specific
for colds, coughs, and lung troubles."

A CHEMICAL ENGINE.
Descriptive of Its Advantages and How
It Affects Insuranca.
, The following explanatory letter has
been received by the . persons indicated
concerning the chemical engine. Messrs.
Saltmarshe, Lauer and Ross are the
committee on fire and water of the com
mon council, and Judd Fish, who also
received a copy of the letter, chief of the
board of fire delegates. Further infor
mation will be given tomorrow, which
will enlighten our business men upon
the details of the proposition :
K. E. Haltmarslie, Esq., Chairman Fire
and Water l:ommtttee, Ihe Dalles, Vre
Dear Sir: At the request of Mr. J
S. Fisk, member of board of delegates,
of The Dalles fire department, we write
concerning reduction in insurance rate
to be made if your city .provides itself
' with a telegraphic fire alarm and a
Any general reduction in insurance
rate has to be approved in writing by
three-fourths of the managers of com
panies doing business here. This ap
proval, however, has so far invariably
been given for any reductien recom
mended by us.
When your city has additional protec
tion of a properly installed fire alarm,
telegraph and chemical engine, we will
tit once recommend a reduction of insur
ance rates on all property within the
protection of the department, of 5 per
I beg to suggest that in calculating the
saving to the city, as compared with the
amount to be paid out, from the install
ation and maintenance of 'above im
provements, the amount of insurance
premium should not be take as a basis.
Considering 5 per cent of the insurance
rate as the measure or value of such im
provement, it is only proper to regard
the value as represented in figures by 5
per cent of, say 1 per cent of the whole
value cf destructable property in the
; . jsity. For instance, if the average in
rrorance rate in your city is 1 per cent,
- and the amount of insurance is only one
half the total value of the buildings and
- stock, and 5 per cent of the insurance
rate (1 per cent) is the measure of the
- value of improvement, one-twentieth of
"-1 per cent of the total value of insur
able property would be the amount
saved by the improvement. In addi
tion to this, however, a protection such
as a chemical engine 'is a guard against
conflagration of such magnitude as to
. interfere with the development of the
city. If the improvement is worth to us
5 per cent of the premiums received by
us, it is of -equal value to such of your
citizens as do not insure at all or only
partially insure, and to the whole city it
is worth considerably more, as it in
some measure protects the city from
ruin by a conflagration.
I have taken the liberty of making
above suggestions, because in oar expe
rience we find that "cities generally do
not give sufficient consideration to the
advontages of protection other than the
reduction of insurance rates. .
Number of fire alarm boxes necessary
could, we think, be about ten, but the
judgment of your fite chief should be
good on this point. Horse chemicals
are better than band chemicals, because
horse chemicals can carry two cylinders ;
while one cylinder is being exhausted,
the other can be filled, and so the chem
ical can be continuously nsed through-
oat a fire. A chemical drawn by horses.
however, should not ba dependent on
horses not always available, as the great
advantage of the engine is in getting to a
fire quickly and patting it oat before it
has assumed large proportions. Unless
you can decide to use horses for no other
purpose, we believe it will be better to
have the larga sized engine, which -we
understand, is a 100 gallon cylinder.
Please command this office if you at
any time desire advice or information.

OLD GRIZZLY FINALLY KILLED.
Death of a Wild Boar Which Infested the
Vicinity of Chlco.
"Grizzly Bend" was the name borne
for many years by that portion of the
county lying1 along- the .Sacramento
river southeasterly from Chico and em
bracing" the Parrott ranch and other
lands in that vicinity, says the Oroville
(Cal.) Mercury. Of course, it is a long
years since the grizzly held possession
there, as, like the Indian, he was forced
to give way before the pioneer settlers
of that vicinity.
A place, however, so well calculated
for the home of the grizzly could not
long be without its representative,
even if it had to be an animal some
what less wild and more domestic in its
habits. Hogs turned loose in the
swamps and morasses soon became so
wild that it was dangerous for a person
to be crfught unawares by one of the
patriarchs of the herds that infested
So large and vicious had one of these
fellows become that lie was known and
feared by all the residents in that vi
cinity, and for his wild nature and
ferocious conduct generally had be
come known as "Old Grizzly," and it
jyas claimed he was bullet-proof and
couldn't be slain. Presently he fell a
victim to a party of hunters who
sought him with the avowed purpose
of effecting his extermination.
The boar was an immense fellow and
weighed 550 pounds. His tusks were
long, one of them being partly broken
off. The hidfc was over an inch thick
and the shields on the shoulders were
2Ys inches thick. He had never been
injured by dogs or gun before.
CANCER OF THE TONGUE.
TIow It Starts and How It Should Be
Malignancy in any part of the body
is very often a provoked malady, says
the Family Doctor. For instance, how
frequently a malignant tumor of' the
mamma is ascribed by the patient to
a blow sometimes, perhaps, errone
the Family Doctor. For instance, how
correctly. Epithelioma in the upper
lip is a very rare disease; in the lower
one it is very common. The structure
of the two lips is identical; the pipe
of the smoker is equally in contact
with both; but the lower one is mova
ble and is often bitten or otherwise
marred by the teeth, which is rarely
the case with the upper. Thus long
continued irritation and slow inflam
mation of certain parts the tongue
being a conspicuous example may, in
a goodly proportion of instances, lay
the foundation or be the earlierstepsof
a very terrible disease. G rant this, and
it will be seen how essential it is to
watch such chronic glossitis very close
ly, to allay irritation, and more espe
cially to avoid all irritating applica
tions. Thus, if the patient smokes, if
he takes highly-spiced food, he should
be directed to discontinue or greatly
modify these habits; if he have rough
tind bad teeth, the defects must be cor
rected, In treating fissures, ulcers,
etc., nitrate of silver or sulphate of
copper ' must especially be avoided.
The mouth should be washed after
each, meal ; boracic acid or bismuth lo
tions may be used.
Cognac, the distilled Jiquor, takes its
name from the small city of Cognac,
in France. The spirit has made Cognac
very rich; the population of no other
city, on earth can show as large a pro
portion of millionaires. The rich liauor
is distilled from wine only, and experi
ence teaches that excellence of quality
is obtained only when the crude, old-
zashioned distilling apparatus is used.

croup cough appears it will prevent the
attack. It is also an ideal remedy for
whooping cough. There is no danger in
