Ho the traveler and the preacher
He the mighty story-teller, .
t fathered all his flock together
Called out all the saints of Portland,
Old and voung and big and little;
(lathered them into n steamer,
In a steamer railed E. N. Cooke-;
Then he said let's take a journey
Take a iournejr to Tumwater,
To the Locks and Dam
The people, if they do not pay expenses
We'll harangue and will abuse them
Call them lost and wicked sinners,
Till concluding it don't pay them
To hold out against us longer.
They will come and get converted
Doing works meet for repentance,
Filling up the hat with silver.
What thev saw alonir the river.
Of tho rocks and brush and fir trees,
Of the meadows and tho woodlands,
1 have not the space to tell you.
But, they landed at tho warehouse
At tho wafhouse near Tumwater,
Then the mighty Edward Payson
Spake unto the people thusly :
"I'm the captain of the steamer
Captain of the whole excursion;"
Then he mounted on his charger
On a gray and furious charger,
J,ed his people a whole epiarter,
Quarter of a milo up Main street.
Then ono Thomas, called from fishing
By the noiso and by the clamor.
By tho shouts and the haranguing,
liy the songs ana by the laughter,
Followed with a brazen trumpet
And amid the shouts and singing
Mid the noise and the haranguing,
Loudly blew his brazen trumpet
But tho people "could not see it,"
"Wake cumtux" this mighty Edward,
So the merchant in his storehouse,
And the lawyer in his office,
And the doctor with his patient
Each kept on alont his buisness
Never minding Edward Payson,

Edward seeing they ignored liim.
Him and Zed. and Charley Gaul-ey,
And would not come out to hear him
Hear him spout his blood and thunder
Hear him tell his tales of horror,
See him frighten little children.
Ho waxed very wroth and vaunting,
He declared he'd preached to house
fulls In great cities of the nation,
While here in the wildest backwoods
In a little back wood village,
On the banks of tho Willamette,
People would not recognize him,
But with lilted brows and staring,
Would inquire "Who is that fellow?"
Who is he that blows and blusters,
Makes such faces, talks such nonsense
He declared this Edward Payson
It was "The most wicked city
lie had found in all his travels
From Jerusalem to Frisco,
And would sink like old Gomorrah
hich the Dead Sea now rolls over."
But the people did not "sabbe"
And the merchant in his storehouse,
And the lawyer in his ollice.
And the doctor with his patient
All kept on about their business,
Never minding Edward Payson.

indeed have been found. Prominent
among these few is Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, which years ago received the
endorsement of the medical profession,
and was hailed by pres. and public as
the great renovant and preventive of
the age. And with good reason, since
to the weakened stomach it gives
strength, to the torpid liver activity, to
the disordered bowels regularity, and
to the shaken nervous system firmness
and tone. Under its benignant influ
