trusty sbepherder over Klickitat flocks
r nearly twenty years arrived ia Golden-
dale last evening from the Horse
Heaven ranges. The veteran sheep
herder says there will Dot be a wether
for sale this year from Klickitat flocks,
east of Bock creek. He says that the
buyers gathered in all the marketable
wethers in that section last fall. He
says sheep went through the winter in
good shape, but the feeding period was
longer than he ever knew in Klickitat.
The 2000 head under his care were given
daily about two tons of rye bay with a
half-ton of barley. The older sheep
were given the most attention as to the
grain feed. And it was only up to last
week he killed on an average of one
coyote a day. Further he says it is one
of the most aggravating scenes he ever
witnessed to see a number of coyotes
skulking about watching a band of
starving horses, and the inBtant one
would get down and could not get np, a
coyote would quickly have the helplees
animal's blood flowing from the jugular
vein, and in a few hours the dead animal
wonld be utterly devoured. The. old
herder has great '-feeling for the poor,
starving horses, and says he dispatched
a number of the devils that were pursu
ing the horses.
La Grippe Successfully Treated.
"I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of La Grippe this year," Bays
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publishei of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this emedy as 1
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' " j

Tension is Severe.
Havana, March 15. The report of
the resignation ot Civil Governor Mora
18 untrue. A certain nervoua tension
and uneasy restlessness, especially
during the evening, is noticeable in the
vicinity of Central Park, where they con
gregate and talk politics. The police do
not allow- groups to assemble, and are
dispersing fbem. Another Gomez mani
festation has been planned for this
afternoon, and it is said that the Cuban
officers will organize a manifestation in
favor of the Cuban .military assembly,
which, if it takes place, will probably
lead to a clash between the opposing
factions. In fact, some people declare
such a conflict cannot be avoided.
General Gomez conferred with General
Brooke from about noon today.
The Junta Patriotica dissolved, pass

Bow to Prarent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always resulta from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. DuriDg the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when bo many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippa to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.

SOME FACTS REGARDING THE RAPID
INCREASE OF HEART TROUBLE.
Do Not Be Alarmed, But Look For the
Heart troubles, at least among the
Americans, are certainly increasing, and
while this may be largely due to the ex
citement and worry of American busi
ness life, it is more often the result of
weak stomachs, of poor digestion.
- Real organic disease is incurable; but
not one case in a hundred of heart
trouble is organic.
The close relation between heart
trouble and poor digestion' is because
both organs are controlled by the same
g-eat nerves, the Sympathetic and Pneu
In another way, also the heart is ef
fected by the form of poor digestion,
which causes gas fermentation from
half digested food. There is a feeling of
oppression and heaviness in the chest
C tused by. pressure of the distended
s omach on the heart and lungs, inter
fering with their action; hence arises
palpitation and short breath.
Poor digestion also poisons the blood,
making it thin and watery, which irri
tates and weakens the heart.
The most sensible treatment for heart
trouble is to improve the digestion and
to insure the proiupt assimilation of food.
This can be done by the regular use
after meals of some safe, pleasant and
effective digestive "preparation, like
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may
be found at most drug stores, and which
contain valuable, harmless digestive
elements in a pleasant, convenient form.
' It is safe to say that the regular per
Bietent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
at meal time will cure any form of
Btomach trouble except . cancer of the

troubles are to be guarded against,

Chicago, March 15. A special to the
Times-Herald from' Washington says :
Discretionary authority has been given
to Major-General Brooke, governor
general of Cuba, to dissolve the Cuban
assembly. From the tone of General
Brooke's dispatches, officials expect that
he will immediately avail himself of the
authority invested in him.
Such action will (be tbe first inter
ference of the government of the United
States with the persons styling them
selves the representatives of the Cnban
people, and if it occurs it will be entirely
due to the illegal and unjustifiable acts
of those persons:
Furthermore, Gen. Brooke will recog
nize General Gomez as the represent
ative of the Cuban people until such
time as the national assembly of Cuba
shall be organized. He will be consulted
on all points relative to the welfare of
Cuba, and General Brooke will continue
to show him the deference due his
position as the recognized leader of the
