LaGripps, for Golds, Coughs,
AND LUNC TROUBLES,
"Two years ago, I had the grippe,
and it left me 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 takes were not helping
me, hut, in spite of his attendance, I got
bo better. Finally, my husband, read
ing one day of a gentleman who had
tad 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
lave 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."

ape trying to cover up the main issue of
the convention ; he felt confident that
the chair would appoint a committee re
porting in favor of free silver.
"It is the question and can't be cov

Democratic principle that a majority in

''I'm in favor of free silver!" exclaimed
George Stout, "and I'm surprised that
Mr. Starr would have the chair appoint
this committee. This is not a one-man
affair, but it is the entire state that is
Speeches for and against these ques
tions were delivered by Hon. B. S. Hus
ton, General Kilfeather and others,
till Hon. L. L. McArlhur arose, and in
distinct and meausured language aeked
whether it had not always been the uni
form rule for each delegation to eelect a
member to serve on this committee.
"If so," remarked Mr. McArlhur,
"why depart from established princi
ples! Let ut respect and abide by
Other debates ensued, among which
was incorporated a motion by J. H.
Smith, of Clatsop, who, by the way, was
the only Democratic member of the last
legislature, to the purport that the chair
appoint a committee of seven on plat
form and resolutions.
At this crisis, Judge Hayden, of Polk,
moved the previous question to shut off
debate, eventuating in the victory of Mr.
Floed's motiou. Before reconvening in
the afternoon it transpired that the com
mittee on platform and resolutions has
a majority of five in favor of the free
coinage of silver.
HOW THEY ARE MADE.
Tmcts of Interest Concerning; Strings for
Althoug-h many people play stringed
insfcromets, few know hew the strings
for their favorite instruments arc pro
duced. - The Neapolitan provinces
maintain their superiority in the pro
duction of this article, which requires
the greatest cara and dexterity on the
port of the workmen.
The treble strings are particularly
difficult to make, and are produced at
Xaples, probably because the Neapol
itan sheep, from their small size and
leanness, afford the best raw material.
They ore formed from the small intes
tines, which must be very carefully
scraped. The intestines are then
steeped in alkaline lyes, clarified with
a little alum for four or five days, until
well bleached and swollen.
They are next drawn through an
open brass thimble, and pressed ag-ayist
it with the rail in ordt-r to smooth and
eqaaJ the surface, after which they are
washed, spun or twisted, and sulphured
flaring- two hours. The string's are
finally polished by friction anil dried.
Sometimes they are sulphured twice or
tbrice before the finishing- process.
It not only is so, It ninst be so, One
Slinnte Cough Core acts quickly, and
that's what makes it go. Snipea-Kiner-ly.

THE VEGETABLE SALAMANDER.
Sire Cannot Injore the KliopaTa, a Hardj
Tree of Colombia.
There is a tree of . Colombia, the
Hhopala odorata, of the order Protea
ceae, which presents, says an article
quoted in Current Literature a most
remarkable power of resistance to fire.
In the district of Bolima it is customary"
every year, during" the dry season,, to
set fire to the plains in order to de
stroy all the dry weeds that, during
rains, might interfere with the growth
of the young- and tender vegetation.
This periodical conflagration naturally
produces the most disastrous effects
upon the trees,, which gradually disap
pear without being replaced, since it
is difficult for, an old tree to resist,
and still more so for a young- shoot
of one or two years. A single tree
forms an exception, and that is the one
above mentioned the Bhopala. Small,
distorted and sorag-g-y, and having a
wild and desolate appearance, this tree
not only does not suffer from the fire,
but derives profit therefrom. It grad
ually establishes itself in localities
abandoned by other trees and installs
itself therein. We have here a very
typical case of a survival of the fittest.
It, alone capable of resisting- fire, wit
nesses the disappearance of its rivals,
and is seen to gradually encroach upon
an always inore extended domain. Its
resistance to fire is due to its bark. The
external portion of the latter, more
than than half an inch thick and
formed of dead cells and fibers, acts
like a protective jacket with respect
to the more central and living parts,
and this assures ifs triumph in its
struggle for existence against fire.
A SPECTACULAR WIDOW.
Wanted .Her Fhotograph Taken While
Weeping Over a Tombstone.
A young widow in' London engaged a
presumably also young photographer
to take her picture while she leaned
weeping over the tombstone of her
"dear departed." On -the day appoint
ed the sentimental beauty in weeds
went to the graveyard and at once
opened the sluices of her great sorrow.
She wept and wept for hours, but he
came not. Finally she went dry and
home, and straightway sued the photog
rapher for the return of the money
which she had paid in advance.
The artist claimed that the appoint
ment had been vague; that he went to
the cemetery and waited three' hours
for her at the grave, also in vain. No,
they didn't compromise by marrying
each other. The judge rendered a
decision against the photographer, be
cause "the photograph, showing the
undying fidelity of the pretty widow,
might, if finished at the time agreed
upon, have been instrumental in pro
curing her a second husband." At
least, so says a Belgian paper.
Should Be Known by Bis Name.
A variety actor went down on the
Bowery the other day to purchase a
stage costume from one of the second
hand dealers who do there abound. "I
want a long ulster, loud pattern, with a
big fur collar," said he. "Yes, mein
friendt. S i you vas an actor?" "Well,
yes. I do a turn in the variety theaters."
"Maybe you know mein son. He vas
in der theatrical business." "Well, I
dunno. What's his name?" "Oh! he
vas one of de O'Brien brothers!"
In Swizerland and other mountain
ous countries the goat leads long
strings of animals daily to and from the
mountains, but it is in Soutb Africa
that it is particularly kept and em
ployed as a leader of flocks of sheep.
Should a blinding storm of rain or hail
drive the silly sheep before it, or cause
them to buddle together in a corner,
sc as to suffocate each other, the
trained goat will wake them up, and by
a method best known to himself will
induce them to follow him to a place

good Chamberlain's Pain Balm has done
my wife. She has been troubled with
rheumatism of the arms and hands for
six months, and has tried many reme

found no relief until she used this Pain
