"AND MEN BELOW."
Billy Bell, who belongs to that
class known as squaw-men, stabbed
fcnd mortally wounded his squaw at
Port Blakeley Saturday, and the fol
lowing day committed suicide by
hanging himself to the bed-post in
Since the beginning of time woman,
lovely .woman, has had much to an
swer for. From the ' golden-haired
Guinevere to the raven-locked Cleo
patra, from the fair-skinned Helen of
Troy to the acute brunette of Billy
Bell's household alike they have
caused trouble, bloodshed and death.
The human heart is a strange snd
complex bit of machinery, and what
it does, or will do, neither science
nor sense may demonstrate. One
would never suspect, for instance,
that a white man would become so
enamored of a Puget sound squaw
that he would commit suicide be
cause, as Bill Nye puts it, "she was
too good to be true." It is hard to
believe this possible, if one has ever
seen one of thesesquaws. They are
not beauties. Most of them have a
forehead like the: mold board of a
breaking plow, and a form possessing
all the grace and roundness of a
twenty-gallon beer keg. They are
dumpy, dirty and suggestive of the
spring run of salmon late in the fall.
Yet such is the power of femininity
that Billy Bell felt that without the
particular specimen of the genius
that he had captured, life would be
an utter blank, and so he sent her
over to the happy fishing grounds
(that tribe doesn't hunt) by jabbing
a hasty butcher knife into her anat
omy, and followed her into the be
yond by the clothes line route.
Prince Henry of Orleans and the
Count of Turin fought a duel with
swords near Paris Sunday, and the.
former got the worst of it, beiug
prodded in the right breaet and in
his royal abdomen, but he will re
cover. His opponent received a
light cut on the back of his hand.
The fight lasted twenty-Gve minutes.
That illustrates the difference be
tween old country methods and the
rapid manner of doing things in the
wild, wild West. The arrangements
for the duel have occupied four men,
. not counting the principals, for three
weeks, and then when the combat
ants finally entered the ring it took
twenty-six minutes to get a result.
In a mining camp the preliminaries
would have been arranged in two
seconds, and without an', and the
corpse would have been carried out
and all hands ginned up before the
twenty-six minutes had elapsed.
' "Western methods are sometimes hur
ried, but the results are enormous
The weather bulletin gives a gen
eral report of the temperature in.
"Eastern Oregon" aDd says the high
est was 98 on Sunda', etc. Eastern
Oregon is a very large country,
hence the report as to the tempera
ture must depend upon the portion
of Eastern Oiegon where it was
taken. At The Dalles the thermom
eter Sunday stood at 3 o'clock at
exactly 100. At Pendleton a few
days befere, we are told it was 106.
Jt is an impossibility to giye the
temperature of Eastern Oregon at a
given time, for it will vary at least
Congressman Ellis was at the Per
kins hotel, Portland, Saturday and
Sunday, and it is said that he was
the busiest man in Oregon, and the
hotel seemingly the most popular
one in th city. The delegation of
those desiring to devote their ser
vices to Uncle Samuel was there in
i force, and the bell boys received tips
for carrying cards up to Congress
man Ellis' room until they thought
thev had a small section of the
Klondike. And yet they received
no satisfaction, for until the balance
of the Oregon congressional delega
tion arrives no recommendations will
We notice among those booked

Among other questions asked ap
plicants for certificates to teach were
three or four concerning Cuba, some
of which would bother a statesman.

"What people live there?" "What

Remarkable Care of Chronic XHarrlioea.
In 1862, when I served my country as
a private in Company A, 167th Penn
sylvania Volunteers, I contracted
chronic diarrhoea. It has given me
great deal of trouble ever since. I have
tried a dozen different medicines and
several prominent doctors without any
permanent relief. Not long ago. a triend
sent me a sample bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
and after that I bought and took a 50
cent bottle; and nQW I can say that I
am entirely cured. I cannot be thankful
enough to you for this great Remedy,
and recommend it to all suffering veter
ans. If in doubt write to me. Yours
