The average weight of 8-inch cast iron pipe, such as the committee on fire and water is authorized to buy, is 46 lbs to the foot. The 1,000 feet would thus weigh 46,000 lbs or 23 tons, which at 53 a ton, would be $1,219. The expense of putting it in place added to that amount (provid ing the 1,000 feet were bought) would give the cost of the proposed pipe line. A.

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.

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 finest and nicest steak to be had in towaatFabrc's.

Cathlamet was the scene of an in teresting examination last Monday, the first charge of having violated the territorial fishing law being before a court 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 Cathlamet 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 of time. 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.
