Our Astoria machine shops arc busy
turning out first-clas3 work. At Arndt
& Ferhens over four hundred iron
crates for holding cooking salmon are
being made. At the Astoria Iron
Worts there is a large crowd of busy
workers in the foundry, machine and
boiler shop3. In one apartment we
foand men setting up some ingenious
contrivances for canning salmon. In
these machines the salmon slides down
a sort of trough,at the bottom of which
a knifo slices off just enough to fill a
can which is on a lateral spindle to the
left. As the knife cuts the fish a solid
punch a littlo leas iu diameter than
the can drives the quantum sufficit of
fish into the can, and the work goes
on. About twenty of these machines
are now building. They are a success.
With two or three chinamen to keep
it from running away with the fish in
its mouth, ono of these can-fillers will
do as much in a day as twenty men in
the old fashion. They cost about 800
apiece and are marvels of ingenious

How Parents, byaLacIi or Precaution
nudCnrc, are Responsible for,
the Death or Their
(Camden, 3fc, Herald,)
The moral and legal responsibility of
parents, in the care of tlieir children is,
fortunatelv. attracting the serious atten
tion of the better portion of the entire
country. The many instances ot child
beating, oppression, and other forms of
cmeltv winch have come to light, de
mand'that something be done; and it is
gratifying to know that the people are
becemim: thoroughly aroused. Whether
the cruelty be in the form of physical
violence or physical neglect matters not ,
the principle in bom cases is mc same.
The man or woman who neglects his or
her own health may be pardoned, as the
consequences fa J. upon the individual
alene: but the parent or cuardiau who
permits the inroads of disease upon the
innocent ones dependent upon him for
protection, is criminally liable in the
sight of God, however, he may appear in
the eyes of men. There are, however,
parents that intend to care for their
children, but, who through carelessness
or the urgency of other duties, permit
them to become the innocent victims of
disease. Such parents may be guiltless
of intentional wrong, but the disastrous
result? upon their children are jubt as
These arc truths which must be mani
fest to every worthy parent and espe
cially in a vicinity where the unknown
effects of the atmosphere, the water and
the general tendency to malaria arc so
great. There are many families in this
locality who have been called upon to
mourn untimely losses, even when the
greatest care was exercised; but the ex
perience of one only will be given: It
is that of the late W. O. Thomas. The
children were all most promising, but
for some unexplained reason theirhealth
and strength seemed to gradually lessen
until their friends feared they were the
victims of consumption. One by one,
they sickened ami died until three had
departed and two of the surviving
brothers were also taken ill. Their
names were llermon and Edward, ller
mon, however, seemed the stronger of
the two; and while his youugcr brother
was confined to the house constantly,
and to his bed much of the time, ller
mon was able to be about but in so weak
a condition that he had no desire to
plav. Eddie's symptoms were terrible !
lie found difficulty in retaining food
upon his stomach, was restless and irri
table, and out of Ins head frequently.
At various times three different physi
cians visited him: and each one told
his friends he coukl notlivc. lie lmaily
got so low that death was only consid
ered the matter of a few days. At that
critical time his elder brothers, aroused
almost to the pitch of desperation by
the three deaths that had so recently oc
curred, and the other one staring them
in the face, resolved to take the case
into their own hands. They accord
ingly did so, and secured a remedy that
was men uemg universally ubtu, ami
began giving it to htm. Its egect at first
was slight, but any improvement was
consideied a good symptom. By de
grees his strength returned; he was able
to eat with a relish, then walk about the
house; aud finally he regained complete
health and strength. The boy was so
reioiccd over his recovery that, accom
panied by the editor of this paper, he
went betore Justice Charles K. Miller
and made oath to the facts of his sick
ness as above related, and that he was
restored to perfect health by the use of
Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure.
Now, Edward Thomas's s parents,
while they lived, undoubtedly, provided
faithfully for the wants of all their
children; and yet the seeds of disease
had taken deep root Their care in one
direction had been counteracted by un
known carelessness in another. Their
love was sincere, but wholly misdi
rected. They should have known that
children are just as liable to kidney and
liver diseases as grown up people; and
that the fatality of Bright's disease of
the kidnevs is lust as creat amonff little
children as with adults. This is a seri
ous subject Hereditary traits: the
after consequences of measles and scar
let fever, diphtheria and the passing
troubles which so easily become chronic,
all demand me greatest care ami cau
tion. No case of cholera infantum,
measles, scarletma, or diphtheria was
ever virulent while the child's kidneys
and liver were healthy. It would shn
plvbe an impossibility. These import
ant organs of the body are just forming
within the child and growing with its
growth; and they can be trained to
truth and uprightness.
The importance of carefully watching
the slightest troubles of the child, and
especially those ffaecting the kidneys
and liver, cannot be too strongly em
phasized. Children respond so readily
to the proper remedies and are so sensi
tive to disease, that it is a sin to deprive
them of one at the risk of Incurring the
other. By a judicious treatment these
essential 'organs can be developed so
that a strong constitution, able to resist
the inroads of disease through coming
years. .hall be the result

"Wiggins' Great Storm.
It seems as though the great storm
predicted by Wiggins, is going to strike
Astoria. During the last week, at least
seventeen young, good-looking, mar
riageable men have been at A. M. John
son's Crockery Store, inspecting their
stock and pricing crockery, with a view
of getting ready for housekeeping. If a
storm is not in transit towards Astoria,
a squall is, at least, and the young ladies
had better be prepared for it. If they
will call at our store during the week,
our gentlemanly clerk will take pleas
ure in showing them the nice sets of
dishes, etc., that their young men have
already picked out Of course we don't
want you to give us away, as we have
promised the young men not to let you
into the secret; but of course you will
want to see what kind of crockery you
are going to use, and as it is all here we
would like to have you inspect it. Sev
enteen honeymoons arc going to be
crowded into this year it seems. How
they are going to do it is a question, but
they'll do it no doubt.
