Sheriff J. S. Purdom has gone to Portland
to ba present on Friday at the execution of

evidence on which Anderson was convicted
is circumstantial, there being no witnesses
to the homicide. He, up to the present time
firm'y maintains his innocence, while the ev
idence against him is strong it is possible that
he is innocent of murder. Should it hereaf
ter transpLe that another, and not Anderson'
did the killing, thero would be added an
other to the already long list of judicial
murders, and fresh proof of the unreliability
of circumstantial evidence. If he is guilty
it is to be hoped that he will make a clean
breast of the matter before the final moment.'

the treatment of good physicians. By this

large quantity of deep yellow mucus, and
after a little sleep in the latter part of the
night, I would awaken drenched by night

in leugtb and strength, and would leave such
a delightful sense of relief to my lungs that
