Deserved Reward of HproNnt.
On the Gth of March, 1883, tho
American ship !lrwi. II. Starbuck,
now at Portland, picked up the ship
wrecked crew of the Italian brigan
tiue Chiara off Cape Horn, for
which the Italian government had
medals struck for the rescuers, one
of whom, Michael Galvin, is now here.
On arrival here Captain Reed, of the
Starbuck, met him and immediately
had tho proper authorities at Wash
ington informed of his whereabouts,
so that the medal might be sent ont.
It has just been received here and
presented to Galvin, who is now fish
ing for George & Barker. It is al
ways pleasant to record any worthy
action, and the recipient is to be con
gratulated on this acknowledgment
by a foreign government of his
bravery in helping to save the life of
his ill-fated fellow sailors. The medal
is a handsome silver one bearing the
portrait of king Humbert and on the
reverse an inscription with the bear
er's name and an account of the cir
cumstances. Give Them a Chance!
Thati3 to say, your lungs. Also

When these nre clogged and choked
with matter which ought not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do their
work. And what they do, they can
not do well.

"la theremy improvement iu the

porter yesterday morning of a man
who has been tishuig since 74.
"No," said he, "there really is no fish
to speak or. What surprises me is
that there has been no run of salmon
in July, bnt there will be a run yet."
"What makes you think so?"
"Well, the dogfish nlwaya come in
with the last of the 'spring' salmon.
Every year since I've been on the
river there is a big lot of dogfish
comes in about the time the big salm
on run in July is over. This year
there are scarcely any dogfish at all
showed in the river yet, which makes
me think that there will yet be a big
run this season."
