The pleasant method and beneficial

the value of obtaining the liquid laxa

dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
gently yet promptly and enabling one

every objectionable quality and sub

liver and bowels, without weakening
or irritating them, make it the ideal

HIS OPINION ANENTHIGH WATER.
Our Old Friend "Greenhorn Survived
Ibe Winter and Hasn't Forgotten
The Greenhorn, June 6,
Editor Chronicle :
I am constrained to write a few lines
for the old Chronicle for several reasons.
One because I feei that way ; another
because I am egotistical eaouerh to be
lieve that its many readers would not
be displeased at perusing an article from
my pencil and following the vagaries of
ruy vagrant mind; but principally be
cause this is the 5lh anniversary of the
high water of '94, on which occasion the
Columbia served as a baptismal font,
and The Dalles did service as the "kid."
I notice what you say concerning the
possibilities of high water this year, and
I indoree your statement. The weather
clerk has done grand service for you
people of the Coluoibia basin this year,
for had average temperatures prevailed
the water would have gone over the top
of the Chronicle building. We have
bad a few warm days, followed invaria
bly by cold nights, and the snow has
gone slowly and steadily. However the
danger of high water has not yet passed,
Cttougn it is tail to presume that con
ditions will not change radically, and
that therefore you will not have un
usually high water. On the other hand
there is a vast area still covered with
enow, from two to sixty feet deep. This
enow is now in the shape of granular
ice, and just in condition to giro up its
waters freely at the touch of the sun.
Ten days of successive warpath and you
will have thirty feet more water at The
Dalles, but I do not believe the ten suc
cessive warm days are in the catalogue,
Sunday was warm: Sunday night the
grounJ froze. Monday it snowed so
that two inches of the beautiful nuisance
lay on the grouud until noon. I do not
believe you will have high water but if
you do, it will be a dandy.
I have another reason for believing
the snow will hang on indefinitely, and
that is that I am interested in having it
go as quickly as possible. I do not be
lieve that Nature changes ber plans on
my account, but I do believe that when
the old judo gets a cranky spell on, that
I will run up against it. The snow is
all gone from around our house but
cross the creek fifty yards there is from
one to three feet of it in the drifts. Be
tween ihem purple iris, buttercups, dog
tooth violets, spring beauties, phenom
enally large ants, and a variegated
flower garden ol bugs of all sizes, kinds
and degrees are in full bloom. Around
the house the old tin cans, gum boots,
discarded socks and undergarments cast
out last fall, have found their way to
the surface, giving variety to the land
scape and spice to the belated breezes of
lazy Spring. The roads are beginning
to show through the snow, in spots, and
the yellow-legged mining expert is
every wheie visible. Many mining prop
erties are changing hands, and. the
Greenhorn (the country, not me) is
having a veritable boom.- TbeBanzette
mine, a four-inch vein one mile from us,
was sold Monday for $30,000. A pros
pect hole near Granite for $25,000. The
Virginia near us has been sold, but on
private terms. A big pump was hauled
in over the snow and is now fast bring
ing the water out of the old drifts. The
Bonanza is putting tip twenty more
stamps, and will build a new I0O-9tamp
mill this fall. This means that this
great mine alone will produce in the
near future $2,000,000 a year, or one
half the gold credited now to the state.
Senator Hearst, one of the finest min
ing men or any other kind of a man,
once remarked in my presence, after
having come from Arizona, that "If an
old prospector could strike pay diggings
in hell, he would write home for his
friends to come, and go into raptures
over the mildness of the climate." In
some respects the Greenhorn climate is
superb. True, it begins to snow in
October and forgets to quit, but then, as
the fellow said when bis best girl showed
him the front door, and requested him
to etay on the other side of it, you have
no uncertain actions and know what to
expect. I knew a fellow once, who used
to go to visit a great big girl out in the
country. lie and the girl got along-all
right but her father, who had eloped
with her mother, objected to the young
man's visits. One day along in Janu
ary the smitten fellow called, but the
old man was at home. The young man
was invited to remove himself. The
snow was about six inches deep and as
the young fellow walked out, he saw the
old man gather a Bhovel and as fast as he
could he gathered the tracks in the snow
on his shovel and pitched them over the
fence, and then the young man was re
quested to keep bis tracks on that side
of the fence. " I have kept pretty close
on my tracks this winter, but I have not
seen any fence, any tracks on the other
side, any old man or shovel, no nothing
but then I always was, and am etill
only ". A Greenhorn.
