While fishermen on the lower river

son some parties father up have been
making very good wages catching
the little bluebacks and sending them
to the canneries. Mr. Oulper, who has
been fishing a short distance below
the month of the Willamette, has had
very good success. The bluebacks
are tied in bunches of six, and each
bunch counts as one Chinook salmon
and sells for 90 cents. In one day
Mr. Culper caugbt 210 bluebacka
equal to thirty-five Chinooks, and
worth $31.50. He also caught some
small Chinooks, and on one occasion
a forty-pounder, who, not being able
to get its head into the mesh, rolled
itself up in the net While bunching
bluebacks one day, Mr, Culper
pricked his finger with the teeth of
one and has been unable to do any
thing for a month, and his. hand is
still badly swollen. Oregonian, 28.

FUNDS FOR THE STATE MILITIA.
Up to the 1st of tho present month
Co. "H" has been drawing 850 every
month county money for its mainten
ance and support, in accordance with
sec. 19, chap. XXXVI of the general
laws ot Oregon.
At the last session of the state leg
islature a bill was passed regarding
the state militia which provides sea
35, article X that to raise revenue to
defray the current expense of the
state militia an annual tax of one
fifth of one mill shall be levied on all
state property subject to taxation.
A difference of opinion arises: it is
claimed that this does away with the
50 a month heretofore appropriated,
and takes the place of it as a means
of support of the several cempanies:
it is claimed that the Summers law
doe3 not repeal the old law on the
subject, and that whatever resultant
revenue there is from the one-fifth of
one mill tax goes to the support of
the company in addition to the
monthly $50 which must continue to
Article VI of the Summers law says
that the state shall pay the sum of
S25 a month for the running expenses
of each company. '
The interpretation of the law will
probably be something for the courts
to decide: it is at present a matter of
opinion. As a matter of fact, how
ever, neither Co. "H," nor any other
company in the state can get along
on less than fifty dollars a month. It
takes close figuring to get along on
that. It is at least $50 a month or
There may be n tost case of the
matter. As a compromise The Asto
rian suggests that should tho new
law prove to supersede the old law,
the county give S25 a month in addi
tion to the S25 a month provided by
tho state, which would virtually be
the same thing as at present, and
would enable the compauy to con
tinue in existence. It a n deservedly
successful organization; it is in part
honorary; can only be kept up by
luird work voluntarily given by its
members and those who take some
interest in these matters, and it is
the least the county cau do to moder
ately assist in an effort to keep up au
organization which is manifestly for

"The Devil's Auction," a very beau
tiful fniry-speotacular comedy, with a
sort of Arabian-Night plot, was pro
duced at the Holhday street theater
last night, before au unusually large
attendance. Tho production can
scarcely be termed a repetition of
'The Devil's Auction" seen here last
season, for it has undergone changes
that amount to a thorough recon
struction. Every feature of tho per
formance is marked by a change, and
the alterations constitute an immense
improvement The premiers and bal
lets met with great favor, and were
simply grand. The contortionist is
very fine. The acrobats marvellous,
and the costumes gorgeous. The
spectacular portion of "The Devil's
auction is grand ana is tne oest on
the road. The play will continue
the Holliday street theater during
the week, and the engagement will
undoubtedly be a big success.

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