IMMUNITY FOR HOMICIDE.
It is a met delicate matter for
newspapers to criiicise the verd.ct of
juries, for the very good reason that
they may Dot know the nature of the
evidence produced. Editors may be
informed of the facts from eye-wit
nesses, but these may be given differ-
ently bpfore the jury. It ia the prov
ince of a jurr.al to upheld the morals
of the community; but before adverse
" criticism is made careful examination
should be made that nothing is stated
incorrectly and unjustly. Because of
this, the Times Moustaineer has been
wary in criticising a verdict ad
versely, although in many instances
the editor believed that crime has
gene unpunished. There are faults in
our jury system, faults in the manner
of receiving testimony, and other faults
which may admit of a possible remedy,
although no apparent one is discerni
ble at present. In time something
may be done and the people will wel
cjme any cfcang which will deter
vicious men from taking human life,
for these who commit lesser crimes
have buffered cs severe punishment
During the last few ynars men have
been fehot and killed like brutes,
pounded to death with stonts and
butchered with a pocket-knife on the
public streets in open daylight, and we
are sorry to say the greatest crime a
Wasco county jury ha3 ever found
aaiast a criminal during this time
has been manslaughter, and the longest
term in the penitentiary to which a
criminal has been sentenced, 15 years.
There Lave bef n et:verl persons who.
apparently, have committed felonious
homicide and been acquitted, and
very niany who were guilty of larceny
are now serving their sentences in the
penitentiary. From these facts it up-
uears that property is saicr in tine
county than human life. This is
deplorable Btate of affairs, and there is
homethinz wronir somewhere. The de-
cision in the I. Oregon Gocdall vs.
the State says it ia only necessary
' for the person to bdieve he is ia rnmi
nent danger tf j.reat bodily harm for
him to be justified in killing his assail
ant before an actual assault has been
committed. This is wrong. It
placing too cheap a value on the lives
of citizens, for the "great bodily harm
' may happen at any time during ex
citement, and the best people may be
' made food for powder and bullet on
the slightest provocation. We hop'
onr supreme court will reverse this
decision, and giva us mote protection
for life. A ftw weeks ago a harmless,
though loquacious, boy was stabbed to
death in open t'aylight near this office
by an infuriated quarter-breed negro,
We were surprised when the grand
iurv indicted the cr'mina' for muider
in the sec md df gree,an i more surprised
when a very intelligent jury brought
in a "verdict of manslaughter, with a
recommendation to the mercy of the
court." The testimony wa3 such, we
havo been informed, as to warrant
such a verdict and we are greatly sur
prised that from the facta we hf ard
that such evidence could have been
given. Bat then witnesses are in dif
ferent moods when they relate an oc-
c irrence to a newspaper man than when
they tell it before a court and jury,
and tho one may appear a cruel, felo
nious homicide, subject to the severest
p malty of the law and the ether a mere
matter of natural self-defense. Per
haps this is the reason that there is so
much disappointment manifested by
the people tbjut these murder trials,
It may be a fact that circumstances as
viewed in open daylight are different
and more criminal than when seen in
the shadow of a court house. At
lpr.ot, from the numerous acquittals
and verdicts of manslaughter in thus
county, when men have been killed
with premeditated malice, it would
appear so. This may be for the bene
fit of the lawyer and client, but it has a
withering and blighting effect upon
the community. It teaches that the
I rutes, in human shape, cf this world
may take their levenge upon innocent
people for the leatt truuiped-np
provocation, and go scot-free before
the law. The effect of these light ver
diets is to grant an immunity to mur
derers and human butchers, and force
men who believe in peace atid moral
ity, to laid together for their own
protection. Thero is no use in dis-
cuisintr the fact that this excuse of
crimes only emphasizes tho necessity
of fome method being adopted by
which feciety is proptrly piotected,
. and human life is safe from the on
slaughts of cowards and 1 ullies.
Mr. Henry M. Stanley, who has
been immured in the woods of Africa
for a long time, has again become
.known to the orld. This celebrated
. explorer has suffered many hardships,
brought Em in Pasha to light, and
claims that he has made great and im
portant discoveries in the heart, of the
Dark Continent. Mr. Stanley has
won lasting renown for himself; but it
is very questionable if he could not
have employed his energy and genius
to a better use in some other field cf

England does not want the earth
she on'y wants all there is of any
worth in the United S'ates. She owns
vast tracts of i&nd in tl o vest, has
large railrovJ interests, and is now at

When she accomplishes this feat, her
avaricious eyes will bo turned ia an
other ireotion. ''
Every town on the Sound appears
to be enjoying great prosperity, and
all kinds of business seem to be in a
most flourishing condition. This was
superinduced by the construction of
the K. P. railroad, and the consequent
developement of the resources of the
couutry. That Putet Sound has safe
anchorage and can be entered from the
ocean without mucn danger no one
will deny; and for this reason it has
long been predicted that eventually a
large commercial point would grow
into prominence in that portion of the
northwest. The coal mines and lum
ber trade may cause quite an export
trade from the sound for many years,
and on the strength of these very many
towns may spring into existence and
enjoy prosperity for a while; but in
time business will settle down to one
or more prominent places. Notwith
standing these advantages enjoyed by
the sound, there are points in Oregon
equally if not more fortunately situated,
This state has two navigable streams,
which drain a large portion of the
country, and which furnish excellent
opportunities for cheap and direct
communication with the ocean. Puget
Sound has no such tributaries, and
commercial intercourse mast be had
with the interior by means of railroads.
This is a prestige which the Oregon
seaport wuerever it may be lo
cated po.-.eesses superior to any
other one in the northwest, and
which, with the exhibition ot enter
prise, will make the city in Oregon
surpass that of Washington. It is
true that the lack of pluck and energy
on our part ha allowed our neigh
bor to make rapid strides in advance
ment during the past few years; but
i his will not always continue. There
ill come a time in the future when
Oregon will arouse herself from the
lethargy which has acted as an obstacle
to all attempts to inaugurate man
ufacturing industries, and this grand
commonwealth will take the proper
j.ositiou that nature designvd she

The free-trade policy of Great
Britain has not I ecu conducive of a
prosperous state of finances, however
much members of the Cobden club may
say it is. There are some British
statesmen who carefully analyze the
existing state of afl'iirs, and who can
arrive at an unprejudicd conclusion re
garding an econoaic policy for the na
tion. The following extract from a
speech of Sii Randolph Churchill, five
V?ar3 ago, clearly outlines ti.e
financial outlook at that time:
"Turn your eyes where you will,
survey any branch of. British indus
try you like, you will find moral dis
ease. The self-satisfied radicul phil
osophers will tell you it is nothing;
they point to the great volume of
British trade. Yes, the volume of
British trade is still large, but it is a
volume which is no longer profitable.
It is working and struggling, so do the
muscles and nerves of the body of a
man who has been hanged twitch and
work violently for a short time after
the operation. But death is there-ail
the same, life has utterly departed,
and suddenly comes the rigor mortis.
"Well, with this state of British in
d us try, what do you find going on?
lou find foreign iron, foreign wool.
foreign silk and cotton pouring into
the country, sinking you, swamping
you; your labor market is congested
wages have tunk below the level of
life, the misery in our large towns is
too frightful to contemplate, and etui-
gration and starvation is the remedy
whicn the radicals offer you with the
most undisturbed complacency. But
what produced this state of things)
Free imports? I am not sure;
should like an inquiry; but I suspect
free imports of the murder of our in
dustnes, much in the same way as if
found a man standing over a corpse,
and plunging bis - knife into it
should suspect that man of homicide,
and I should recommend a coroner'
inquest and a trial by jury."
The Democratic press are exceed
ingly jubilant over the success of the
disintegrating factors of the Republ
can party in Ohio and Iowa, and claim
the elections indicate a desire of the
people for a return of the Democratic
administration in national affairs. Fo
nearly twelve years that party had
possession of the lower he use of con
gress and for four of the executive
chair, and if any one can tell any good
they did-for the nation we would will
ingly make note of the fact. The
complete control of affairs during one
presidential term appeared to have so
disgusted the American people that,
at tho next opportunity, they not
only defeated the presidential candi
date, but changed the political com
plexion of the lower house. The
Democratic party will have to be born
again before it can hope for success,
and Mr. Mills or Mr. Carlisle must
not be god-fathers to the child.
To-morrow as a holiday will be gen
erally observed in every state in the
union. I a observance dates back to
the time of the Puritans, when that
religious people set apart one day
every year for prayer and thanksgiv
ing. In recent times i. has deterior
ated to a day of joyful re-unions and
feasting?, and if some of the first Bet
tiers could look upon the dinner in
dulged in by their descendants they
would . undoubtedly exclaim, "Vanity
of vanities, saith the preacher, aud all
is vanity. It will truly be a day of
thanksgiving if we bountifully remem
ur the poor, and see that they receive
some portion of our abundance.
Senator Mitchell has prepared sev
eral important bills to be introduced
during the coming session of congress,
and we are glad to note that he is not
unmindful of the Columbia river, the
only relief of Eistern Oregon from
railroad monopoly. The completion
of the locks a the Cascades and of a
boat railway between this city and
Celilo are absolutely necesssary for tho
developement of this country, and we
hope the Oregon and Washington del
egation will work in harmony on this
important question of the removal of
obstructions to the novigation of the
real river of the west, 1
Dr. Giffen the statistician of the
British Board of Trade, says Brad
streets, is an economist who sometimes
has been thought by others than bi-
metalists to lean in the direction of
bimetallism, and he has been quoted
as an authority in discussions by
bimetallista. Some of his published
statements seemed to give color to this
view of his opinions. For example,
in discussing economic changes since
1873, in a papr read before the Lon
don Statistical Society in December
last on "lieccut Changes in Prices and
Incomes," he said that "IS73 the al
teration in the economic movement
was in money, and to this must be as-
scribed the change of prices which has
occurred." Iu this statement Dr.
Gillm would see'u to insist that money
is the mam factor in the chance in
prices. Hi; linn lately contributed
paper to the Kineleeilh CeiUnry in
which he seems to take a contrary po
sition, declaring that "it is the range
of prices as a part of the general eco
nomic condition which helps to deter
mine the quantity of money in use,
and not the quantity of money in use
which determines prices." The two
statements here put in juxtaposition
would seem to be clearly inconsistent,
thouh, perhaps, Dr. Giffen may be
able to reconcile them. There can be
no doubt, however, from the criticism
of bimetallism which he makes in his
paper, that ha can no longer bi re
garded as leaning towards bimetallism.
The Dalles, the coming season,
should surprise the whole country.
This city has more natural resources
than any other on the Columbia, and,
if proper enterprise was exhibited,
should show a creater growth than
any town in Oregon. A beef packing
establishment should be started here
with the opening of the season, and
this should give employment to two or
three hundred people. This is the
best point in the Inland Empire for
such an enterprise, and if it be
put in operation it would be a means
of increasing our wealth two-fold.
Aside from this a woolen factory,
and other manufacturing industries
could be operated with great bene
fit to the buinrfij of ths community
We hope some of the wealth ' which
has been made in this city for the last
quarter of a century will be expended
during the coming year in placing in
ooeration some of the most desirable
fedora for our development. The
Dalles has the best prospects of any
town in the northwest, and if we do
not lead any other city east of the
Cascades the fault lies at our own door.
Tho policy of the dominant white
race in the south towards the negroes
has become obnoxious to the honest
men of the Democratic party, and
Gov. Hill, of New York, a probable
candidate for president on the Bour
bon ticket, gaye a stinging rebuke to
his partisans for their cruel conduct
towards thia dependent people. The
leading papers of the party in the
south have also spoken in condemna
tory language of the oppressive and
unfair treatment of the colored people.
Public opinion is being aroused to the
importance of a free ballot and equal
protection to all citizens of whatever
race or color, and southern Democrats
cannot muzzle the dough-faces of the
north to obey their behests in this re
gard. The colored man must have
equal rights in the exercise of the
elective franchise with the white, or
else the Democracy at the ballot box
will experience a series of defeats.
The party understand this, and for
thia reason are changing their former
position on the question.
A Pendleton exchange classes The
Dalles as a "suburb" of Portland.
This idea is both original and unique
Whatever there is of Eastern Oregon
has been made by this city. It has
advertised the resources of the region,
advocated an open river, and has been
attacked by Portland on this account.
When The Dalles becomes a suburb of
Portland, strange things will happen,
unconceived at present. But the fact
is, that- thia point and the metropolis
are wide apart, and there ia Lot an
improvement in which we are inter
ested but Eastern Oregon would be
greatly benefited thereby.
The Democracy is preparing its slate
for next June, and we have heard can
didates for nearly all the officers to be
elected at that time; but so far no
mention of a U. S. senator has been
made. If the Democrats can gather
any substantial hopes from the results
in Ohio and Iowa, it is high time they
were squaring their senatorial timber.
The fact is, they can build no expect a
tion fro oi these states in an off-year,
and for that reason are willing to wait
aud watch developments.

There is no city in Oregon eastern
or western that has been so com
pletely ignored by Portland as The
Dalles. Insignificant points, w ith not
half the population or the natural re
sources, are mentioned daily in the
Clre.nonian. while the cateway of the
-"- ' -
great Inland Empire is passed in sig
nificant silence. During the past sea
son Mr. Max Vogt, of this city, has
built and almost completed the largest
opera house and hall in the state, yet
the great paper, which pretends to be
the exponent of the advancement of
the northwest, has never mentioned
the fact. Before the Tribune was
even conceived, the Mountaineer was
doing valiant work for the Inland Em
pire, and advocated an open rivir from
Kettle Falls to tho sea before it knew
Oregon existed or there was such a
river as the Columbia.

of protection, in opposition to that

The Portland and the Salem boards
of trade have adopted resolutions in
favor of Chicago as the place for hold
ing the world's fair in 1892. The
Dalles should follow the example of
these two leading cities, and give Chi
cago its endorsement. This great city
of the lakes is representative in every
thing that is western and progressive.
Levelled to the ground in 1871, she
has since recovered from her losses
and is now the second city in popula
.tion and undoubtedly the first in en
terprise. The Seattle Leader, the prohibition
paper of the new state, still hurls its
invectives at the Republican party.
It haa more friendliness toward any
other organization, and seem deter
mined to force the party to obey its
behests or ruin it at every opportunity.
But it cannot do this, and it would be
wise if prohibitionists would change
this policy and strive only for the
amelioration of the race from the evils
of intern perance.
The president is warmly commend

in 1892; 'to Republicans a complete

next presidential campaign, and strong
hopes of victory.
A CHAXCE FOB AS .EXPLORER.
A Section of Washington Wh I eh Has
Siever Been Visited by a white
Washington has her great unknown
land like the iu tenor of Africa. The
country shut in by the Olympic mono
tafos, which includes an area of about
2500 square miles, has never, to the posi
tive knowledge of old residents of the ter
ritory, been trodden by the foot of man,
white or Indian. These mountains rise
from the level couutry, within 10 or 15
miles from the straits of San Juan de
Fuce in the north, the Pacific ocean in
the west, Hood's canal in the east and
the basin of the Quinalt lake in the south,
aod rising to a bight of 6000 or 8000 feet,
shut id a vast unexplored area.
The Indians have never penetrated it,
tor their traditions say that it is In
habited by a very fierce tribe, which
none of the coast tribes dared molest.
Though it is improbable that such a tribe
could have existed id this mouutaiu coun
try without their presence becoming
known to the white men, no man has ever
ascertained that it did not exist. White
men, too, havo only vague accounts of
any man havrng ever passed through

claims of travelers has invariably proven
that they have only trayersed its outer
The most generally accepted theory in
regard to this country is that it consists
of great valleys stretching from the in
ward slopes of the mountains to a great
central oasin. lluatDeory is supported
by the fact that, although the country
around has abundant ram and clouds
constantly baug over the mountain tops,
all the streams flowing toward the four
points of the compass are insignificant.
and rise only on the outward slopes of
the range, none appealing to drain the
great area shut in by the mountains.
Tins fact appears to support the theory
that the streams flowing from the inner
slopes of the mountains feed a great in
terior lake. But what drains this lake
It must have an outlet somewhere, and
as all the streams pouring from the moun
tains rise on their outward slopes, it must
nave a subteirani-aa outlet into the ocean,
the straits or the sound. There are
great discoveries in store for some of
Washington s explorers.
A gentleman named Drew, now resid
ing at Olympia, states that he has climbed
to the summit of the eastern range from
Hood's canal, and looking down could
see great valleys stretc' ing toward the
west. A party of railroad prospectors
claim to have penetrated the interior, but
could give no account of it, and appear
only to nave sKirteti trie outer slopes, 10
or 15 miles from liooa's canal. A party
of United States soldiers is said to have
traversed the country from Port Town-
send, but no data are obtainable as to
what they saw.

TEN MILLION-DOLLAR FIRE.
Lynn, Mass., Nov. 26. Lynn, the city
of shoe?, was visited this afternoon by the
greatest fire In its history, and, with two
exceptions, the conflagration is the most
disastrous that ever visited New Eugland.
The fire started about noou, raged over
eight hours, devastated a square mile of
the business section of the city, and
caused a loss estimated at 110,000,000.
In fact the greater part of Ward Four is
wiped out, as regards the important shoe
manufacturing blocks and prominent
places of business.
The fire started in Mower's wooden
buildiog on Calmont street, and soon
communicated with the six-story brick
block known as Mower's block. Almost
simultaneously the four-story wooden
shoe factory of Bennett & Barnard, on
Central avenue, and the tour-story wood
en building on Almont street caught fire.
At and alter this time a hurricane of flame
was in progress.
The burned territory includes dwelling
houses too numerous to mention, besides
a vast area of husiuess blocks.
Aid arrived from Boston, Salem, Mai ble
head. and the surrounding towns. After
the fire bad been in progress two hours
everybody declared that it would not stoo
until it reached the ocean, and such
proved the case. Four daily newspapers
are burned out, the Item, Bee, Press, and
News. There were many narrow escapes
from accidents, but no fatalities reported.
The high brick fare-wall of the B. F.
Spinney block served as a barrier to the
further progress ot the flames up Union
street. After that handsome structure
was gutted, three national banks, the
Central, Security and First National, to
gether with the Lynn Institution for Sav
ings, located in the First National block,
weie all wiped out. Twelve of the finest
shoe blocks in the city are in ruins, and
about twenty-five stores. At this writ
ing it is impossible to state how many
dwelling bouses are burned. They were
mostly occupied by the poor class, in the
vicinity of Beach street and the wharves.
The Central Congregational church was
burned to the ground.
Lynn's costly blaze.
Lynn, Mass., Nov. 27. The city is
pat ruled by militia 250 men being on
duty, stationed at the entrance of the
ruined streets, barring approach to the
burned district. The guard is strict.
Guards are stationed at the stores, which
have been partially cleaned out, to pre
vent thieves from taking what is left.
No one is permitted to pass the guards
without a permit from the city clerk.
Through the associated chanties many
families were furnished lodgings last
night in rooms hired at lodging and
dwelling bouses, and rations of hot sonp,
crackers and bread are being serve! to
all in need of food. As soon as some
plan for assistance can be devised, the
work of providing for the destitute
families will progress rapidly.
THE ESTIMATED LOSS.
Boston, Nov. 27. The manufacturers
here are ot the opinion that the total loss
at Lynn is nearly $5,000,000. ' The num
ber of buildings'burned Is 296, of which
forty two were brick block, 112 wooden
buildings used for business purpose, and
142 dwellings occupied by 164 families.
The number of laboring people thrown
out of work is estimated at 8000.

overboard and the vessel quickly went to
pieces and disappeared. Five ot the

and eight sailors were drowned. When
the vessel struck, the captain, it is said,

looked as if the flames would advance

desperate hre-fighters were being forced
to recede inch" by inch. The building

Salem, Nov. 28. A special from Rose
burg says: F. Cam, a track walker for
the Southern Pacific Company, was mur
dered last night, between 10 and 11
o'clock, by unknown parties, five miles
south of Riddles. He was shot with a
Winchester rifle from behind through the
heart, while just cutside the door, and
drugged into the bouse and the door
closed. They searched his trunk and
room, and took a watch, a 33 caliber
Smith & Wesson revolver and a small
amount of money. There is no clue to
the perpetrators of the crime.
Surveyor eneral or Oregon Fxplalas
Jluw They May be Opened up. .
The following is an extract from a let
ter of the Surveyor-General to one of his
correspondents, making inquiries as to
the mode of proceedure in asking for a
survey of public lands:
"The appropriation made by congress
for public surveys for the cuirent fiscal
year (which commenced on September 1)
was $200,000. This under the law and
regulations, must be expended for 'town
ships occupied, in whole or part, by act
ual settlers with improvements; and the
surveyors shall be confined to lands ad
apted to agriculture and lines of reseiva
tions.' "In order to secure sureys, the depart
ment requirement is that application
thereto should be addressed to this office.
"The settlers living upon the unsur
veyed lands in the vicinity should unite
in a petition to survey. The petition
should be accompanied by a statement
showing the number of bona-fide settlers,
the character of the unsurveyed lands,
the nature and value of the improve
ments and the area under cultivation
stating, if possible, the township. The
approximate general course ot such valley,
or valleys should also be noted.
For several years past it has been the
policy of the General Land office to pro
hibit the survey of her forest or heavily
timbered lands; but it may be necessary
under the requirements of the Appropri
ate Act (Second Session Act, Fiftieth
congress, chapter 411, page 959) to make
some modification ot this restriction.
There are in some localities fine agricul
tural lands which although heavily tim
bered, or occupied in part by bona-fide
settlers, who at great loss and expense
have made tor themselves permaneut
homes to which they are anxious to ob
tain title. Whenever such cases arise,
all the facts as to the character of the
lands, and the kinds and quality of the
timber, in addition to the information as
to the number of settlers and the char
acters of their improvements, should be
fully presented lor the consideration of
this office and ot the general land office.
The Hon. Commissioner will allow the
awarding of contracts for the survey of
timber lands when their value for agri-
nnUM.al - nn .a mall u(.kll..L.J 1
cultuial purposes is well established, and
satisfactory proof is given of their occu
pation by bona-fine settlers who have
made permanent improvements.
"Upon receipt of the petition I wilt
forwafd the same to the general land
office with an estimate of the cost of the
desired surveys and such recommenda
tions as this office may deem proper.
In the event of the survey being
ordered by the Hon. Commissioner, the
expense thereof will be paid by the gov-
A Pipe Wltha Hlatory.
Indian Agent Moorhouse now smokes
a pipe with a history, and one which
serves as a dumb, but eloquent memento of
"old times." He too delight in relat
ing the following story of the pipo to his
mends, between puns, as the smoke as
cended in a hlmy vapour from the bowl
and was lost in the surrounding atmos
"It belonged to Eagan, the mighty war
chief of the Bannocks, and one of the
noblest specimens of Indian manhood and
savagery that ever scalped an enemy or
led a party ot redskin warriors to victory.
'it was Hagan, it will be remembered.
who, in the war of '78, led his band ol
Bannocks to the hill north of Pendleton
and scared some of its residents into hys
terics, lnaeea, ne would have captured
the town had it not been for the timely
arrival of General Miles. I
'He was a powerful foe. and General
Howard determined upon bis captuie.
The story of his betrayal by Urn a pine
to secure a reward of $500, is a familiar
one. That Indian, representing himselt
as a lriend and ally, threw the wily
chieftain on bis guard, and delivered him
to i a ten-e-ou-itz. Eagan made a break
for liberty, but was caugtt, stabbed and
killed by Ta ten-e-ou-itz, whose lodge
pole is now adorned with JSdgan's rcalp.

descended is some manner, to Paul
Sbow-e way, by whom it was presented
tome. It was a war pipe ol the Bannock
chiefs, and was gravely smoked in coun
cil when a raid upon their pale-face foe
was being discussed."
the bowl ot the pipe is composed of
tnat reddish-colored clay which is seen
in many articles of Indian manufacture.
It is neatly inlaid with silver, evidencing
mucu care and nicety iu construction.
as a souvenir aud as a p'pe, also, it is
highly yalued by Mr. Moorhouse.

That is but a short time. The ocd
n itjd women of the present day look
:' he passngc of the last hulf-ceutury ns
. Jii-iru that is pust. And yet what
changes have been made iu tho political
aud domestic economy of the United
State?. But what are to be the lessons
and results of the next fifty years? The
population of the United States will then
be at least 150,000,000. Where are they
to live and what are they to eat? At
prcserit it takes about six bushels of
wheat per capita to feed the inhabitants,
requiring now about 300,000,000 bushels.
Fitty years hence, with a population of
150.000,000, at the same rate, it will take
900,000,000-busheU. Where is it to come
from and where is it to be raised? Wheat
is a desolator, and leaves barrenness in
its track. While the wheat area is being
pushed northwest and into the valleys of
the mountains the area behind it is being
closed up. The Genesee country, tho
western reserve, the Wabash valley and
the grand prairies of Illinois, so celebra
ted in their several periods as prolific of
wheat have long since been abandoned
as feasible fields for wheat raising. Illi
nois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin are
now following suit.
Then where are the 900,000,000 bush
els to come from annually to feed 150,
000,000 inhabitants? There are no new
worlds to discover. The entire face of
the world is known. But the United
States has nothing to dread. It is the
great corn field of the world, which pro -duces
the most nutritious human food.
Its roots do not desolate the soil. By
proper care and wise farming equal crops
can be raised for 1000 years in succes
sion, and the human race may never leel
a lack ot food.
The population of the world may be
three times larger than at present, and
the corn area ot the United States can
produce enough of thii rich and nutri
tious cereal to teed the world.

Lazarus willingly accepted the order, and
after the bullock was slaughtered, deliv

The Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga,:
During the spring of 1871, while working
In the field at my home in Morgan county,
Ga I pulled off my shoes to give my feet a
rest. Unfortunately, I walked into a clump
of poison oak, and in a few days my feet
were in a terrible condition, and I could not
put oa a shoe because of the soreness and
swelling. I was treated as poison oak cases
usually are, and everything was healed up.
About the same time the following spring,
1872, my feet became sore again, as at first,
and every succeeding spring for five years
brought back the same condition of the dis
ease, only each time it became more dis
tressing, because I began to think it was a
lifetime trouble. Finally, I was induced to
try Swift's Specific. I took six bottles, and
to-day am entirely well. My improvement
was gradual from the first, and no evidence
of the disease remains. I shall take pleas
ure in testifying as to its curative proper
ties. It is the greatest blood purifier in ex
istence. Yours truly, J. L. Morgan.
