The letter I recently wrote the Globe

which took place here has had the ef

of hundreds of ether men and women
in every city and town. He had gone
along thoughtlessly, noticing only
occasional inconveniences, and had
suddenly been awakened to the fact
that death was staring him in the
face. He had overlooked little pass
ing troubles without realizing that
they are often "the beginning of the
end." He had neglected interests
that concerned his very life, just as
thousands of others do, simply be
cause they come in a quiet and often
unnoticed way. And it is cause for
gratitude that his experience is hav
ing so good and arousing an effect on
others who were drifting in the same

Winton said :
"I can specialty sympathize with
Mr. Smith for I have been through a
much similar experience in my own
family. My wife became troubled
and weakened, as so many women
do, and from small symptoms and

a grand medicine and a large Buffer

skeptical of its life saving, healthy

"It is certainly receiving wonderful
indorsements" I remarked. "Do yon
think it merits them."
"Every one of them. "Why, when
my wife began using the remedy she
discovered the same medicine had
been given her by a physician soma
time ago without her knowing the
name of tho medicine given at the
time. I can also prove that bushel

AMUSEMENTS AT GOLD GREEK.
On the up trip of the steamer
from Astoria to-day, says the
N'etcs of the 27th, there arrived in
this city a young man, well known
here, named Robert Harain. He,
in connection with a large number
of men who gain a livelihood
along the shore, left here a few
months ago, going to Oak Point
there to engage in salmon fishing
during the season. As is custom
ary at this season of the year, all
along the lower river, at conven
ient distances, there are anchored
a class of boats familiarly called
whisky scows. This place, in this
respect, was no exception to the
rule. Near by the cannery, on a
small stream called Cold creek,
Pete Hansen, a middle aged
Swede, kept his scow, and as an
additional attraction had in his
employ a number of half breeds
from this city. To this place the
fishermen for miles around re
paired each night to barter oil
their fish receipts for a supply
of his vile liquor, and to enjoy a
a whirl or two in a shindig, over
which Hansen presided. Last
night Hatnin went there, .and he
and an Indian, named Jim Ruby,
soon became involved in a quarrel,
in which the latter came out sec
ond best. This victory had a ten
dency to make Hamin a little over
bearing, and to such an extent did
he carry on his antics that the wom
en flew iu terror from him. Pro
ceeding to the sleeping scow
in pursuit of one of the frightened
frail ones, he rapped loudly for
admittance, which was denied him.
At this juncture Hansen appeared,
armed with a 44 calibre Colt's re
volver, and ordered him to desist
or he would shoot. To this com
mand Hamin paid no heed, but
rather dared him to shoot, which
he did in short order. One of the
balls struck Hamin in the hft
breast, about two inches below the
nipple,.and ranging across and up
ward came out near the center of
the body, indicating from its pas
sage that it was fired from behind,
and at a time when his left side
was partially towards Hansen.
The other ball struck him square
in the muscles of the left shoulder,
and as there appeared to be no
outlet, Dr. Keyes, the attending
physician, is of the opinion that it
is lodged under the left sho ilkr
blade. Even thus injured, Ham
lin showed no disposition to quit,
for he made for Hansen and dealt
him a violent blow under the
chin that caused him to drop his
weapon and flee for safety. Yes
terday as the mail boat passed,
the injured man was brought to
tne city and taken to his lodgings
on C street, where a reporter of
the iT2Jrs interviewed him. In
answer to an inquiry from the
scribe as to whether he intended
to prosecute or not, he remarked:
"What for? He sent me here,
telling me to hire a doctor and he
would pay all bills, and what better
do 1 wantr"
The old sidewheul steamer Ori
zaba is being broken up at San
Francisco. Her machinery has
been removed, her houses taken
off, and her hull will be converted
into an immense barge for the
transportation of wheat and pota
toes. She is the last of the fleet
of steamers that brought to Cal
ifornia the innumerable hosts of
1849 and 1850, the others being
the Pacific and the- Oregon, both,
like the Orizaba, being exceeding
ly familiar to the trade of Puget
sound, British Columbia, Oregon,
California, Mexico and Central
America. The Orizaba was not
only the longest lived of the fleet,
but was the freest from disaster,
and promises, in her new capacity,

A difference of four quarts of
milk per day, at the low price of
two cents per quart, makes for
300 days $24, which is the interest
on $400 a year. This does not
represent the entire difference in
value, as the progeny of superior
milkers will be worth many times
as much to raise as will the pro
geny of the inferior animal. No

Selecting Potatoes Por Seed.
It is remarked that "the time to
select potato seed is when digging
the crop. That like produces like
all admit; and it is only reasonable
to infer that those hills which are
the fullest of' desirable potatoes
are the ones to save. When the
right hill is" found, save every
tuber that is large enough for seed.
This method gives the best chance
for not only keeping up but im
proving the quality of the crop.
Breeding from the best is a much
more reasonable and promising
method than a random selection
from the pile at sorting time.
The best hills are discovered only
at harvest time, and then is the
only proper time they can be se
lected for seed."
The French mode of killing
poultry, causing instant death and
perfect bleeding, is accomplished
by opening the beak of the fowl,
and, with a sharp-pointed and
narrow-bladed knife, making an
incision at the back of the roof of
the mouth, which will divide the
vertebras and cause instant death,
after which the fowls are hung up
by the legs until bled. They are
then picked when warm. In this
way the skin presents a natural
