A DcwrvIuR Ical Enterprise.
All interested in the success of
local enterprises will be pleased to
note the rapid growth of the North
west Fire and Marine Insurance
company, a local company
that commenced business here
last fall and has recently been re
organized by the eleohon of a new
board of directors and officers.
Under its present management
tho company is fast gaming the con
fidence of the business community.
The leading commercial agency, in
making report of the company, says:
"Considerable change will be noticed
in the management and personnel
of this company since our last re-
Jort F. E. Beach is now president,

names above mentioned, the direct

nold, F. M. Warren, F. Eggert, D.
D. Oliphant and J. Loewenberg.
This seems to us a good board for
a company of this kind, all the
names being favorably known along
Front street, and the stock has been
subscribed by men in good stand
ing. They are doing a careful and
conservative business."
One of the old line insurance agents

In Brief, Ami to the Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cooker-, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made tho American people a
nation of dyspeptics.
But Green's August Flower has
done a wonderful work in reforming
this sad business and makiug the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
Remember: No happiness without
health. But Green's Angust Flower
brings health and happiness to the
dyspeptic Ask your druggist for a

Words of Wise Prophet.
Before 1310 senator Benton, of Mis
souri, while making a speeoh with one
foot in Missouri and the other in the
Indian territory, said that the day
would come when the trade of the
old world would enter tho Columbia
river and be transported across the
continent by rail. The people under
stood him not. In 1863 Col. Hudnut,
the Union Pacific railroad surveyor,
said to the writer: "There is but one
natural pass to the Pacific ocean, and
that is by way of the Columbia river.
And when tho time comes, and it will
come, that railroads will compete for
the Pacifio trade, tho business' will be
done over the road that passes
through that natural pass." Clarke
