Jack Frost was on hand in
good form in this vicinity Wed
nesday and Thursday mornings
and more than one person hud
dled about the fire. It is fair to
presume that more than one pater
familias was enraged because the
fire would not burn. v While no
record of past vears for this city
in the way of frosts is at hand lor
us. it was a pretty cool proposi
tion and we have a rieht to re-
oice that we had shoes and stock
ings in abundance. The Tele
gram of Wednesday gives the
following interesting data:
Portlanders shivered this morn
ing when they sprang from their
rustling couches, and well they
might, for not for 24 vears has
the city experienced at this sea
son such cold weather. The
Lermometer registered 32 degrees
6 o'clock. Frosts were general
Western Oregon and in inter-
mountain districts there was
snow with still lower temperatures.
On October 11 and 14, 1881,
the mercury dropped to 32 de
crees, and not until this morning
has it been so cold in the early
part of the month. On October
30, 1895, the people, for all their
cloths, were cold, for the ther
mometor showed 31 degrees. "
In 1877 there was an equally
cold temperature on October 31.
Uther -points throughout the
state and the whole Northwest
show low temperatures. It was
36 degrees this morning at Rose
burg, and at Baker City the mer
cury registered 26 degrees.
At lacoma and. iji the" Sound
country it was as cold as at Port
land, and at Spokane it was 24
degrees, and snow fell.
At Helena and Salt Lake snow
is reported. The coldest point

The Oregonian Again.
It is the practice of the Ore-
gonian on Monday morning to
write up the more meritorious
theatrical attractions. Last Mon
day morning a quarter 01 a
column was devoted to "Honest
Hearts," giving it a very compli
mentary notice. Part of this ar
ticle was as follows:
You hear of theatre audiences
falling in love with the hero who
smashes the bold bad villian, or
when the former rescues the hero
ine from drowning, but fancy an
audience becoming enamored with
a pile driver in. full action. That
happened at the himpire theatre
yesterday at two crowded per
formances of William Robert's
melodrama, "Honest Hearts," a
tale of old Kentucky. This is the
first season of Honest Hearts
and it's a thrillerlfrom start to
finish. , It is just filled to the
brim with rapid action and equal
ly as rapid comedy.
Then follows a brief descrip
tion, of the story of the play.
Again on Tuesday a compliment
ary notice was given the play.
Readers of the Gazette should
obtain a copy of the Monday Ore
gonian and read all that the paper
has to say, since the same com
pany is to be at the opera house
here on Jb nday evening the 27th

pear and an excellent idea can be

Truth and Influence.
A name for
ing is better than great riches. Fraud
is a bubble that soon bursts. Dr. E. V.
Pierce has always been known to speak
the truth his famous medicines are
founded on the rock of public approval
and have thousands of truthful testi
monials as to their ability to cure dis
eases for which they are recommended.
No man ever
lost a prospec
through tolling the truth. In the long
run Dr. Pierce believes the truth will
prevail and he is therefore not afraid to
make public his formula.
of Doctor Pierce's

excellence and harmless character of his
"Prescription" by letting ailing women
know just what they are taking when
they use this reliable tonic and nervine

feminine. These ingredients ate com

for weoic women, or his "Golden Medical
Discovu'ry," the well-known alterative
tonic, which is so larcelv used as a rem

Diooa ana Kindred ailments. Over fortv
years ago, he discovered that chemically
pure feijiceriue is a iar Deiter solvent 01
most of the active principles residing in
our native medicinal plants when used at
a proper and sustained temperature than
is alcohol ; and, furthermore, he found
that a glyceric extract kept much bet
ter than an alcoholic one, and that the
glycerine possessed intrinsic remedial
value, being demulcent, nutritive and an
effective anti-ferment. Although costing
somewhat more, Dr. Pierce predicts that
glyceric medicinal extracts will, in the
not distant future, largely replace alco
holic ones so generally prescribed by
physicians and put out by proprietary
or "patent medicine" manufacturers, as
being more efficient and entirely free
from the serious objection of making in
ebriates when used in lingering or chronic
cases, where a somewhat protracted use
of medicine is necessary no matter how
good or well adapted to the case it may
