Resrne of a Drowning Boy, Ycstpnlny.
Yesterday afternoon the carriers of
the Oregonian and News were on
Wilson & Fisher's dock awaiting the
arrival of the Telephone, and shortly
before she came in, one of the boys,
Willie Young, the thirteen-year old
son of Mr. Max Young, of Alder

the dock into twenty feet of water.
A rush was made for the spot by sev

In Brief, Anil 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 cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, aud many
other 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 in reforming
this sad business and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
