moo tain storm.
Graphic Description of the Angry Ele
ments in the Cascades.
The atmosphere is surcharged with
electricity, and everything betokens a
storm. I eujoy a mountain storm if it
occur3 in the summer time. . I like to
see the trees huge piuec, whose long
arms' reach longingly and loomingly
to the heavens above them bend and
sway in tbe tempest, and hear them
creak and twist, until they lay prone
upon the earth, from which, a thou
sand years sjr', tbey sprang into exist
One time I happened to be with a
party camping away up on the side of
Mt. Adams, in a canyon, that was des
titute of trees, with the exception ol
fallen ones that were whitened by time
and storms. Across the canyon were
pine, fir, spruce and hemlock trees.
A wind storm came up in the after
noon. I heard thei trees wailing, and
moaning and sighing, as their tops,
one by one, came crashing to the
ground, and once in a while s"me
mighty tree measured its huge length
uoon the side of the hill which bore it.
To me it was graudly sad, and remind
ed me of human lives that in the
storms of life are suddenly dashed into
The wind carried the clouds to the
east and leaves of maples and quaK-ing-aspen
hurried after. ' Birds wenL
flying hither and thither searching for
a secure resting place, and speaking to
each other in unmistakable tones of
fear at the storm which was brewing.
That night we had rain and light
ning; thunders rolled and dashed
against the rugged sides of the moun
tain up there until all nature seemed
to be in a tumultous fury; in veugeance
perhaps with tbe wood for having
committed some act not in accordance
and in harmony with nature's teach
ings. The glaciers sent huge holders
hurling down the mountain into Hell
Roaring Canyon, until the echoes
reverberated and set the denizens of
the woods into furious excitement, and
the whole world seemed full of sounds.
Upon tbe hill above us a lonecayote
set up its weird chant, long wails of
pitiful pleading to the god of tbe storm
to be merciful to the children of the
woods. The notes of tbe eayote were
followed by the scream of tbe panther,
whose voice sounded so very much like
that of a woman; soon the yeowl of the
wild cat was beard and then all three
sang a trio which finally merged into
a quartet as our dog wanted to have a
voice iu the matter, and then it was
that the tragedy of nature began. In
the lull of the tempest the whole ear. b
seemed light with that provided by
the storm-od, then the grand opera
by the wolf, panther and other animals
began, followed by peals and -peals of
thunder, more lightning and ' then
wind, with its accompaniment of fallen
To me the program was a success, in
eyery detail. I sat in the door-way of
the tent and enjoyed it every bit.
The next morning the world was
bathed in sunlight as old Sol came
peeping over the hill tops, ashamed
and like a naughty child after a little
stormy temper; but finally came boldly
up and kissed his hand to every living
thing and making the rain drops on
leaf and blade and rock, glisten like
millions of diamonds that made tbe
world look brighter for having en
dured the storm. .
So1 it is with life; if we weather the
storm we are better for having done

A Hard Bitter.
Corbett, Fitzsimmons & Co. are
noted for their hitting powers when in
dulging in the manly art; the Ameri
can guns are noted as hard hitters
wben it comes to shooting at Spaniards J
or Spanish fortifications of any kind,
and in fact the term "hard hitter" is a
generic one applied to all classes. If
this, is so, a hard bitter in tbe real
estate business would mean a man that
not only lists property for eale, but is
able to sell it after it is placed in his
hands. We have a real estate hard
hitter in this town who is more popu
larly known as Old Dad Butts, and the
way he aaakes real estate move would
put to shame any retreating Spahiar ',
or successful Fitzsimmons. Just the
other day he told you about two snaps
and the print hadn't got cold, when he
had them disposed of. Today he will

A ick man is like a
man who (roes up in a
balloon. He is blown
hither and thither by
the winds of disease.
A traveler by rail or
stramer has a regular
trick. He is reasona
bly certain of reaching
a given destination;
but the balloonist is at
the mercy -of totally
No track, no course.
no rudder, no certainty that any breeze may
not Dnng destruction.
So with tbe sick man. His disordered
constitution renders every natural operation
uncertain. No organ can be depended on
to do its normal work. The stomach will
not digest food; the liver will not filter bli
ious poisons from the blood
and skin will not excrete the waste. No
regular nourishing or purifying process is
going on. There is no certainty except the
certainty of suffering.
In all dyspeptic, bilious, debilitated con
ditions, what is needed is to change the ab
normal, erratic operations of the system
into a natural, regular, straightforward pro
gress in tbe right direction. Nothing in the
world will do this so rapidly and certainly
as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It directly regulates the vitalizing func
tions. It sets tbe stomach and liver into
natural, healthy operation" and gives the
blood-making glands power to manufacture
an abundance of pnre, rich blood.
It creates appetite; builds up muscular
strength, and banishes nervousness and
neuralgia. As it can be assimilated by the
weakest stomach, its nourishing properties
are far superior to nauseating cod liver oil
in severe coughs and all wasting diseases.
The druggist who recommends something
else as "just as good " is thinking more of
his extra profit on the " juat as good " kind
than of yov welfare.

J. H. Bowerman is putting up a
fruit evaporator on a big scale at New
burg. The buildiDg which is being
built by Professor Morrison and Jones
is 40x60 feet and aside from the build
ing the evaporator is to cost $2,500.
Claud Branton, accused of murder
ing John Linn at Alder Springs, in
the Cascade mountains, was given a
preliminary hearing at Eugene Mon
day, and wis held without bonds to
await the action of the grand jury.
John Morrison's threshing machine
exploded and burned near Pendleton
Monday. The explosion was caused
by smutty wheat. There was no warn
ing. No one was injured. The engine
feeder acd derrick were saved; also 700
sacks of wheat which were piled near
Sunday evening, July 31, the Pendle
ton wo ilen mills began running full
force, all eight looms being in opera
tion. Tbe resumption of work gave 25
operatives employment. The wool
scouring mills, of course, will be kept
running to their full capacity likewise,
employing 35 men.
The concensus of opinion among
those who have examined the wheat
fields of Linn county is that the
average of summer fallow will be from
15 to 20 bushels, with some fields going
a good deal more, or stubble and
spring wheat from 10 to 15 bushels. The
aphis has undoubtedly done consider
An attempt was made one night last
week in Marsb'field to burn down the
Cedar-street bridge. A box and sack
saturated with oil were placed under
the bridge and set afire. The flames
were discovered and extinguished be
fore much damage was done, the tim
ber of the bridge being only charred.
A few evenings since a band of 25 or
30 hobos were ordered out of Colfax by
the authorities. All went west in a
body on the railroad. At Crest tbey
met a laborer named Owen Gartlan,
who is in the employ of George Smith.
Gartlan was completely surrounded by
the gang, held up and robbed of $25.80.
He was able to give but a meager
description of any of the robbers.
Tbe proposition to vote $20,000 of
bon Is to build a school house in school
district No. 1, in Union county, which
includes the city of La Grande, was
defeated at the election held Friday
afternoon in La Grande. Only 134
votes were oast. Of these 63 voted for
the issuance of the bonds and 71
against, defeating the measure by the
narrow margin of eight votes.
The grain fleet for this season's crop
will soon begin to arrive. The first
siip that will come in will probably be
the Euphrosnye, which will arrive
here early in August from - Port
Angeles. The Fourthbank will soon
after arrive from Gerghenti, Sicily.
This will be the first vessel ever to
arrive here from that port direct. The

WE NEED MOBE WATER.
Tho Dalles Has Outgrown the Present
Any user of water cannot bub ob
serve that the supply of th'e city water
works is inadequate and that it is only
a question of a few years when the
plant will have to be enlarged by tbe
laying of a larger main leading from
Mill creek to the reservoir. Durin
all seasons when there is no irrigating
the supply is sufficient, but in the
months of July and August there is
not enough water to meet tbe demand,
When the hydrants are opened for ir
rigating purposes tbe reservoir can be
drained inside of two hours, while it
should at all times be kept at least
half full, so in case of fire there would
be a sufficient supply to protect prop
It is certainly evident that the sup
ply pipe will have to be replaced with
a larger one or an additional pipe will
have to be laid. 1 he city cannot offord
to be short of water, and as the de
mand will steadily increase in propor
portion to the growth of the city, dteps
will have to be taken soon to increase
the water system.
