In Brief, And 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 moBt 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
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.
Bemember: No happiness without
health. But Green's August Flower
brings health and happiness to the
dyspeptic Ask your druggist for a

SHOT BY A DISCARDED LOVER.
Point Pleasant, "W. Vn., Aug. 16.
For several months past Amos and
Bradley Townsend, cousins, have
both been paying attentions to Miss
Eunice Laidley, all living in tho west
ern part of this county. Each lover
had begged her to accept him and to
discard the other. Last Sunday
evening both were at Miss Laidley'a
home, and finally she declared that
they should "draw straws" to decide
who should become ner nnsoana.
This was agreed to, and Bradley
Townsend won the lady's hand.
Amos at once withdrew and started
for home. A few minutes after
Amos' departure the report of a gun
rang out, and Bradley was horror
stricken to find that his sweetheart
had fallen dead with a bullet through
her heart Amos, who is undoubted
ly the assassin, has not since been
seen. The community is greatly ex
cited over the tragedy.

THE PRELI3IIXARY EXAMINATION.
Cathlamet was the scene of an in
teresting examination last Monday,
the first charge of having violated the
territorial fishing law being before a
Hugh Murray, manager of the Bay
View cannery, had been arrested last
week charged with canning salmon
taken from the river in August, and
on the day mentioned had a prelim
inary examination before justice of
tho peace Graham at his office in
Governor Seinplc was present and
gave the court his views of the law
generally governing justices of the
peace in examinations. It appeared
that the sheriff had visited the can
nery and stated that he would not ob
ject to the fish then in sight being
canned. Before the fish were put
away, however, he arrested Mr. Mur
ray and filed a complaint against him.
The court held that neither the sher
iff of tho county nor the governor of
the territory had any authority to
suspend the laws and that cannery
men were a3 liable under the law for
packing salmon with the consent of
those officers as without.
In the evening the governor ad
dressed the fishermen of Cathlamet
on the fishing question advising them
lo send to him, or their representa
tives, all ideas they had concerning
fish laws, that tho fullest information
might be laid before the legislative
session to be held this fall.
He argued that a hard or poor sea
son in the fishing business was no ex
cuse for destroying tho enterprise;
that the miners on the, Sacramento
claimed they could tfrc out more
money than would be sufficient to
buy the farming lands and that the
lands should be bought for dumping
purposes. But tho plan was not ac
cepted because wheu the money was
taken out of the mines only a barren
waste would be left, bnt the farming
lands could bo cultivated and made
lo yield harvests annually lo the end
So the Columbia river under prop
er regulations would afford fish to a
value of two and one-half to three
million dollars annually, but if ex
ceptions were to be made for light
runs, poor luck, etc, the whole would
ba destroyed for temporary gain.
The defendant gave bonds to ap
pear before the Kalama grand jury
at the coming session of court.
Shark v. Soa Lion.
Yesterday, as a number of fisher
men were" engaged in netting for
salmon and bass on the bay between
Alcatraz and Saucelito. their atten
tion was directed to a terrible com
motion under the surface, in close
proximity to their nets. The occu.
pants of one of the boats immediately
pulled up alongside of tho naval com
batants. It was found that the battle
centered between a 12-foot man-eating
shark and one of the valiant sea lions
of the Cliff. The water around was
stained with the sea lion's blood. The
fishermen state that the lion would
on every occasion sink its teeth deep
into the back of the shark; the latter
would then execute a rotary move
ment which would release him from
tho lion's hold. Tho monarch of the
Cliff, finally detecting that it was a
useless attempt- on his part to con
quer the hyena of the ocean, made a
rather feeble effort to escape. Tlie
shark, truo to his voracious nature,
would not relinquish the attack, and
making a final dash at his adversary,
the two monsters struggled until
they got entangled in the nets. It
was with much difficulty that they
landed their big game. When on
land the shark was full of life, aud
the boatsmen found it no small mat
ter to dispatch it The sea lion was
dead when taken from the net The
shark, a genuine man-eater, was 12
feet long and weighs about 1,200
pounds. San Francisco Call.
