Something to Know.
It may be worth something to know
that the very best medicine for restoring
the tired out nervous system toa healthy
vigor is Electric Bitters. This medicine
is purely vegetable, acts by giving tone
to the nerve centres in the stomach,
gently stimulates the Liver and Kidneys,
and aids these organs 'in throwing off
impurities in the blood. Electric Bit
ters improves the appetite, aids diges
tion and is pronounced by those who
hare tried it as the very best blood puri
fier and nerve tonic. Try it. Sold for
50c or $1.00 per bottle at Blakeley &
Houghton's Drng Store. (2)
Sneezed Bis Eye Ont.
One of the most peculiar accidents
ever recorded occurred the other day to
Charles Doran, a resident of a Cincin
nati suburb. Doran was nursing a se
vere cold, and, meeting a friend at the
railway station, he accepted a proffered
pinch of snuff. The membrane of his
nasal passage was very delicate and
sensitive, and he sneezed violently. - So
evere was the paroxysm that the in
ferior oblique muscle of the left eye was
-ruptured, and, as he continued to sneeze
the exertion forced the eye completely
out of the socket. A physician suc
ceeded in replacing the eye in the
Doran eaid, in describing his sensa
tion, that the pain was not intense when
the eye was forced out. He felt -as
though something was bursting in bis
head, but did not realize what had hap
pened until he saw with his right eye
that his left optic was dangling on his
cheek. The pain of repairing the injury
was much more severe than the injury

CAME TO SEE A BICYCLE.
Owned a Horse Ranch and His Business
Was Kalncd. '.
"There g-ors one cr th . goldarnet)
The speaker was a vvhitc-brri.rded
man fully 70 years cf age vrt1. . ii tiiy
appearance, evidently a iamitT. The
person addressed was a younger man,
his hig-h-heeled boots and red necktie
also denotinir the agriculturist.
It was at the Morrison street bridge
and just before five o'clock in the morning-.
The gray night mist had not yet
lifted from the river, but these two men
had risen from their beds impelled by
a curiosity to see a bicycle. .
"Yes, sir," answered the elder of the
two, in response to a question, "we're
out yere on this bridge tcr see a bicycle
-a critter neither of ns has ever seen
afore. You see, we live in the moun
tains back in Clatskanie, and bicycles
don't come our way.
"We come, up the river on the G. XV.
Shaver, an' eomin' up, George says ter
me: 'Pop, did yer ever see a bicycle?'
an" I had to admit that I hadn't, sltho'
I understand th" pesky things are
plenty enough, judgin' from th' flgnrrn
published in th' papers regardin' th
output pf th factories buildin' them.
But this is th' first time I've bin ter
town in nigh on 13 years, an' fer th' lifV
of me I kain"t recollect seein' one of th"
machines then. '
"So I jest asked th' purser where th"
best place lo catch sight of a Kfycld
early in th" mornin was in Portland,
an' he told me th" bridge here ahead
of th' steamer. Well, I was that pes
kered to' see one that I routed Gecrge
out fio soon as it was daylight, an" we've
been stand in' on this bridge ever since
waitin' fer n bicycle man ter come
along." Then, turning to his compan
ion, the. old man said :
"Well, if I did rout yer out kinder
enriy, ye're the most interested.
."Yer bet I am!" George replied; and
then the younger man went cn to tell
what the bicycle had done for the horse
raiser and farmer. He has a band .of
some C00 horses on the range and !)0
acres of oats. Five years ago these
horses would average $S.j per head i;n
broken, and he received 00 cents per
bushel for the oats not used in getting
his horses in condition for market. To
day the horses can hardlv . be given
away, and his oats bring HI cents. And
this he ascribes to the bicyclo.
And eo the two men sat, perched on
the bridge railing, watching, as the
morning grew on, the increased num
ber of bicyclists crossing the bridge
and pouring out their anathemas on
that "goldarned thing," the. silent steed.
HOW DOGS ARE STUNTED.
Methods Employed in the Manufacture of
There is an era of tiny dogs in Eng
lish society. The more diminutive a
parcel of canine flefe'h that you can pcs
sess the more are you a swell, says the
Toledo Blade. But, alas! How many
feminine readers who delight in tlv
miniature doggies know that they arj
an artificial product.
There is in London an establishment
devoted- entirely to the stunting of tha
animals. The . proprietor is an ex
br'eedcir pf fighting dogs, but he now
finds more profit in rearing the lilipu
tian canines, for which he has a. wid.
reputation. He does not claim to be the
originator of the process, for he say.-;
that all dog men know of the dwarfing
powers of alcohol, but he asserts that be
is the only man in London to adopt the
His mebhod is as follows: The pup
destined, to be stunted is taken from its
mother when a few hours old and when
it begins to whine for sustenance it i
fed with a warm decoction of gin and
water. : Deprived of milk, it takes to
'.his readily.- When it reaches a certain
age alcohol in various forms constitutes
the animal's sole diet-. The pus do net
die nor do they develop. They soon
cease to grow at all. After a genera
tion or two of mating the much-prized
liliputian canine is obtained.

fight for the principles for which THE TRIBUNE has labored from its inception
to the present day, and won its greatest victories.
