A Gentleman from the Kittitas coun
try reports that serious trouMe is nn
ticipateil with tbo Inaians, ulio are
daily becoming more insolent and de
monstrative. Recently a buck belong
ing o Moses' gaug attempted an out
rage on a white woman, but her screams
brought several men who were at work
within hearing distance, to (he rescue
and the Indian tied. Just previous to
his (our informant's) departure the In-
xiu ayain proven to be a desperate vil-
the punishment to which lio so justi
fy deserved, resolved upon sending
him oil' to tho happy hunting ground's
on short notice. So thev made a grand
charge on him with the? bnts of their
rilles, and one settler dealt so heavy a
blow as to br.-nk oil' the stock of his
gun. However the Indian dodged
about and finally got away under cover
of the darkness, which was now coming
on, without sustaining any other injuries
it has since been ascertained from
his comrades on the reservation than
a broken jaw and several severe bruises
about the head. The Indians are all
(neatly incensed over this procedure
and declare they will have revenge
Tho Indians are preparing, it is gener
ally believed, for au attack uoon the
white settlers as soon as opportunity
shall present itself. The ugly breach
between them and tho settlers is being
widened every day, our informant
states, and both parties are arming
themselves for an outbreak. Numer
ous complaints i re made against Heat
tie and other merchants on the Sound,
whom the settlers claim are supplying
tho Indians with all the arms and am
munition they want. Recently, our
iuformant states, an Indian returned
via the Suoqnalmie pass from this sec
tion with three kegs of powder on tine
pack animal. Tho restless feeling, cn
gendere.l this among tho settlers by
these well grounded npprol ensions of
Indian troubles, coupled with the gen
eral excitement manifest over the
outrageous project of establishing. av
"Indian JJotany JJuy" in the very heart
of their conn) ry, for the accomodation
of the savage hordes of Cue Columbia,
well nigh driven them to desperation
They are for the most part, beginning
to feel just as if they would sooner
fight than not, and are making no ellbrt

I despise a stingy man. I don't see
how it is possible for a man to die worth
fifty millions of dollars, or ten millions
ot dollars, in a city full of want, when
he meets most every day the witherd
hand of beggary and the white lips of
famine. How man can withstand all
that, and hold in the clutch of his hand
twenty or thirty millions of dollars, is
past my comprehension. I do not see
how he can do it. I should not think
lie con Id do it any more than ho could
keep a pile of lumber when huudreds
a d thousauds were drowning in the
sea. Do you know I have known men
who would trust their tvive3 with their
hearts and their honor, but not with
their pocketbooks- not with a dollar.
When I see a man of that kiud, I al
ways think lie knows which is most
valuable. Think ot making your wife
a beggar! Think of asking vou every
day for a dollcr or two dollars, or two
humbly beg for fifty cents. "What
did you do with that duller I gave you?"
Think of having a wife that is afraid
of you! What kind of children do yon
expect to have with a begger aud a
coward for their mother? Oh, I tell
you, if you have but a dollar in tho
world, and yon have got to spend it,
spend it like a king; spend it as though
it were a dry leaf and you tho owner of
forests. That's tho way to spend it.
I had rather be a begger and spend my
last dollar like a king, than to a king
and spend my money like a .beggar. If
it's got to go, let it go. Get the best
you cau for your family and look as
well as you cau yourself. When you
used to go courting, how nice yon
looked! wh, your eye was bright, your
step was light and you just put on tiie
very best you could. Do you know
that it is insufferable egotism in you to
suppose that woomeu is going to love
you always, 'ooking as bad as you can?
Think of it! Any women ou, 'earth will
be true to you forever when you do
your level best. Bob J.taer-oi.

In (lie Avliole Iristory ot medicine, no

tion, as AvKit's CllKitKY I'kctoKa:., which is
ree.igiii'-d as t he world's remedy lor all dis
eases of t he I iiroat, and '.lilies. Its long-continued
series of wonderful cup-.s in a! 1 1-1 iimit.es

reliable agent, to empioy. .Against ordinary
colds, which are t he forerunners of more se

always relieving st.-ir.-rin-r, and often saving
life. The protection it. affords, by its timely
use in t he t hroat and lung disorders of chil
dren, makes it an invaluable remedy to be
kept always on hand in every home. No
person can a iTord to be wit hont it, and those
who haveonce used it never wid. l-'roin t heir
knowledge of its com posit ion anil effects.
Physicians use tlu CilKitriY I'kctobal ex

remedial effects, and will alu-ays cure where

If you ar-? troubled w til nervousness, arc
disheartened, tired of life, fear deat h, or feel
out of sorts, as the saying Is, you may safely
conclude that you have the Dyspepsia or
Liver Complaint. The liver is very apt to
become torpid this season of the year, as ioi
sons arising from stagnant water or decaying
vegetation are more numerous, and are
through inhalation taken into the blood.
Unless the liver is strong and active, and fur
nishes a supply of fresh and pure blood to
drive out the impurit les, tin; atiove-ment ioncd
symptoms surely follow, and if not heeded,
end in more terrible diseases and death.
White's Prairie l'lower proves itself the Oreat
Liver Panacea. Its action on the liver is dif
ferent from any medicine ever comundcd.
Its cures are truly wonderful. Try it. I'rici;
hvoii' y-llve cents and seventy-five cents.
Liver in King.
Tho Liver is the Imperial organ of the whole
human system, as it controls the life, health
and happiness of man. When it is disturbed
in its proper action, all kinds of ailments are
the nat ural result. The digest ion of Iood, t h -movements
of the heart, and blood, the action
of t h? brain and nervous system, are nil im
in iiately connected with t he workiggs of the
Liver. It. has been successfully proved that
(ireen's August l'lower is unequalled in cur
ing ill persons atiticted with Dyspepsia or
Liver, and all the numerous syptoins that re
suit from an unhealthy condition of the
Liver and Stomach. Samplo bottles to try,
