TEE EXCELLENCE OF SYBUP OF HGS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
Saiown to the California Fig Syrup
Ca only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As - the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the Califokhta Fig Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other pat
' ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fr? Stkup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. ' It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
towels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of

Editor Chkoniclb :
We have seemed to have bad a mild
attack by W. E. G. through your issue
of the 15th inst. ; therefore, with your
fctnd permission, we will try to show
that it was some cattle man or men that
ie was training his guns on. Our posi
tion is that there shall be no driving up
on, herding, or pasturing our timber re
serve with stock of any kind ; and right
here we will say that we feel as proud of
Che sheep industry as any man, and have
. always been found working hard for that
industry with ballot and political in
fluence. Can W. E. G. say as much?
We perhaps would know Mr. W. E. G
better if he would give us the name his
another gave him.
For the Rake of the forest reserve and
forest influences, we say all herds off;
and a strong government police on. The
policy of requiring those who lease the
reserve to take with them fromj.400 to
00 pounds of grass seed to sow in the
mountains implies that they must burn
off the ground, or hunt for places where
someone else has fired tire ' mountains
for it would be of no use to sow the grass
eed among the forest leaves.
Another yery important reason why
-the herds should be kept off tbe reserve
is that there is not half room for all and
thus liie more pity that the forests and
iicnae-e should Buffer so much injury for
ttiie benefit of so few. It is doubtful if
there baa been as little snow in tbe
mocirtains for the last forty . years as
(tkeere today. Fourteen years ago last
noct& -was the last deep snow that has
Satien in this country, and the water has
not run out on ' the bedrock bat very
little since that deep snow.'
Before that year, it was ,very common
for the snows to fall deep and the waters
to run in the little draws and on the
bedrock until in the month of May. and
first of June. Mr. W. E. G. says that
wheat could not be. raised on these
plateaus tbuncb grass land) twenty years
ago. Say, W. E. G., go ask yonr poppy
about that, if you have one. J. J. Grif
fin more than twenty years ago raised a
field of wheat that averaged forty bush
els to the acre, and a few other measured
acres averaged sixty bushels to the acre.
More than thirty years ago the writer
raised barley on this bunchgrass land
that grew eo tall and heavy that it
lodged in places.
Since about fourteen years ago our
enowa have been less abundant, our
rains have been less and more irregular
and crops lighter and our climate drier.
Give us back- the mulching on tbe
ground, the nnder growth and timber
destroyed by fires, the snows that were
held by these until late in the spring;
and then agree this Eighty forest in
summer will inhale at night waters
from the snows beneath, tbe dews and
rains from above and in the hot summer
days will exhale thousands of tons of
water that will impregnate, this dry
atmosphere of Eastern Oregon and will
generate dews and snows which will
again give us good crops.

cljmatic influences see bulletinNo. .. 7

Yon are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. Daring the

was never followed by that d . ease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or

breeze, the flames spread in the opposite
direction, destroying fully 20 shacks and
houses opposite the ruins of the church
The incendiaries escaped.
Mysterious signals were frequently

Crew o Whites Many
The number of lives lost in the rush
tr. Alaska, in the search for gold prob
ably never will be known, and tbe man
ner m which hundreds oi persons have
met death in the wilds of Alaska will
ver remain the subject of speculation
among friends and relatives. The latest
c-ports tell of the fate of IS persons
A-ho are said to ba.ve been killed while
rv.ing' to enter the mouth of the Kus-
cokv.im river last June on the lit-t.l
iearr.er Jesse. The story has just been
jrcught from that' section in a letter
to Barneson and Chilcott, who were
part owners in the wrecked steamer.
The letter was written by a hunter
and trader on Nuinivak island, ICO
miles from the mouth of the Koskok
win, and in it he claims to have posi
tive information that all hands were
rescued from the steamer and the barge
when they went ashore in the breakers,
only to meet death a, the rands of
savages. According to Marsten s letTer
his wife, who is an Indian woman, paid
a visit to her relatives at the mouth of
the Kuskokwin river shortly after the
wreck of the Jesse. While there she
attended a feast given by the Indians,
during the progress cf wihioh the In
dians got drunk on a kind of liquor
made by themselves. While indulging
in the general debaucn they quarreled
over the possession of certain articles
taken from the shipwrecked crew.
Her suspicions were aroused by see
ing tihem in possession of many valu
able articles of wearing apparel,
watches, breech-loading rifles and
abundant supplies of provisions.
She made, inquiries of her grand-
trcther, an aged squaw, who related to
her how, when the Jesse and the barge
Minerva went ashore, the Indians as
sisted in saving the whites and the
cargo of the barge, and after the whites
had established a camp the Ir.cians de
manded pay for their services. They
wanted nearly "everything the whites
had, not leaving, them enough to last
the party through the winter. The
whites offered' a reasonable amount,
which did not satisfy the Indians, whe
immediately began planning to take
possession of everything.
A council was held and it was decided
to kill all the whites, which was done
the nextnight while they were asleep.
The bodies were taken to the sea in
c&noes and thrown overboard. Nothing
was known of the fate of the -unfortunate
prospectors for nearly a month
after the wreck, when several bodies
came ashore badly decomposed The
Indians then reported that the Jesse
and the barge had been wrecked and
Report was made to an agent of the
Alaska Commercial company, who vis-
itl the scene and identi.led the bodies
of Capt. Murphv- and Rev. Mr. Webber,
a Moravian missionary, who with his
wife and children joined the expedi
tion at Dutch Harbor and was going
to establish a mission among the sav
ages who murdered him. It is further
stated that the Kuskokwim Indians
threaten to stop the whites from pros
pecting in the Kuskokwim country, as
thev claim it is their hunting and fish
