A NARROW ESCAPE.
Tho Graphic Account of a Most Won
derful Occurrence. t
Kingston Correspondence Boston Globe.
An event has taken place in this
city so remarkable in its nature that
I venture to describe it in full. The
principal in the affair is Mr. Jere
Smith, son of Mr. Cornelius B. Smith,
of tho State Insurance Department at
Albany, -who is well know, stands
very high and is in every way reliable.
I have had a long and most interest
ing interview with him, which I tran
scribed and send you in his own
words, trusting it may prove valuable
to your readers:
"During last year," he said, "I
could not understand what was the
trouble with me. I had always felt
strong and hearty, but I gradually
became aware that something was
undermining me. I first began to fepl
drowsy and then in a day or two I
would be unnaturally wide awake.
Strange pains would come in different
parts of my body. My head did not
acne much but
it usually felt
heavy. I was

time: but it did
picture of health, not. I don't
see how I could have been so blind,
but I suppose I was like most people
who are troubled in the same way,
and thought it nothing dangerous.
After a while I noticed a peculiar
color and odor about the fluids I was
passing ; that they were dark at times
and very light at others. Finally I
began to gain flesh, but I knew it was
unnatural and that I was bloating.
This frightened me, and I consulted
physicians, who were very kind in
their attentions, but did not help me
in the least. My father then went
with me to New York, and we con
sulted the eminent Dr. Keyes, who
treated me for several weeks. At
that time my condition was horrible.
I was bloated from head to foot, it
was almost impossible to breathe,
and I could not sleep. In several
places on my body the skin burst
open, so great was tho pressure from
within. The agony I endured was
indescribable. Then "the doctor told
me my case was hopeless, that I had
Bright's disease in its worst form, and
that I bad only a few days to live."
" Fortunately I had a friend who
mo and would
not see me die
without a strug
gle. He did not
urge, ne insisted
on my making
one more effort,
and I did so. I

tinued to improve, and am a well
man to-day, and owe my life to the
marvelous effects of that wonderful
reparation, Hunt's Remedy. I be
ieve this is the greatest medicine that
was ever discovered by man, and I
only wish4 the whole world might
know what it has done for me."
"I know there are thousands of
people troubled, as I was and in just
as great danger, but they do not real
ize it. Bright's disease is the most
deceptive, the most horrible malady
the world has ever known. It has no
settled symptoms, but assumes every
imaginable form. I had no idea it
was Bright's disease that was under
mining me until I began to bloat, and
now that I am well and enjoying life,
I feel like telling everybody about my
miraculous escape. Is it any wonder

ever known. The first symptoms
which Mr. Smith felt were such as
many others feel but do not consider
worth noticing. It is plain, however,
that the early indications of a danger
oub disease cannot be trifled with, but
must be met promptly, and by such
a remedy as has been pro 'en to be
indeed a friend in time of need.

ASTORIA, OREGON, THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 18$:
WHAT A THOUGHT DID.
A little woman had lain sck for
weeks in her home in one of the
divisions of Chicago. The doctor
had come in the morning and eve
ning and felt her pulse, and left
some medicine and gone away, for
as many weeks as his patient had
been in bed. Her husband had
come in from his work at the close
of each day and had prepared his
meal, had carried something to the
patient little sufferer, which she
would taste in the daintiest way
and then close her eyes. The
nights dragged along as the little
clock on the shelf went -galloping
away, the hands passing the hour
mark with an extra click as if to
gain more strength for the next
hour. The door-bell had been
muffled, and even the children in
the neighborhood passed the place
on tiptoe and muffled their laugh
ter and shouts till they reached
the corner. It got to be such a
routine that the neighbors called
in a mechanical way. The tem
perature was stationary, and the
sunlight came through the window
curtains in a feeble manner, as if
it was weary of falling across the
pillow where the little pale face
was always the same. One day
strange hands out of the wood
lands about one of the suburban
towns gathered some flowers.
They found their way into the city
and indirectly were sent to the
sickroom. The breeze came in at
the window with the sunshine and
the two grot in amon" the flowers
and carried the pei funic to the
sick pillow. The eyes of the pa
tient opened and a smite camp over
the wan features, and then the
pale lips moved and the hands
were clasped. Somehow the wo
man grew better and the home
brighter, and in a few drtys she sat
by the window and a little later
she was on her feet and she and
the bird in the cage sang together.
It was only that some oihj had
Killing Eat3 by Strategy.
"To attempt to catch rats by
traps or by poisoning them sud
denly will fail," said an old rat
catcher recently to a reporter.
"Old rats know too much and can
be caught only by kindness. To
destroy them give them a good
meal every day. Do not put any
poison in the food, but simply pre
pare a dish for them daily, as a
free lunch, composed of cornmeal
moistened with milk, into which
one egg with salt to season has
been beaten. At first they may
not touch it, but keep it before
them making it fresh every day.
They will soon try a little, and if
not injurious their suspicions will
be allayed. In a week or ten
days they will expect it and every
rat on the place will be at the ap
pointed spot for the treat. Give
plenty of it so as to induce all the
rats in the neighborhood to join
in. Do not be in a hurry to poi
son them. If they eat all the
foood give them a larger, portion
next time. As soon as they have
thrown off all suspicion get some
phosphorus paste, or other rat poi
son, mix it with the food, and be
sure to give them enough and
something to spare, so as to induce
all to eat. They will either be
killed or become so suspicious of
all food that not a rat will remain."

Lost Both Legs.
At three o'clock yesterday af
ternoon Dr. Saylor received a tele
gram from Bridal Veil falls, urg
ing him to come there and attend
a man who had broken both legs.
He took the Atlantic express for
the falls, arriving at 5 p. at. The
name of the injured man is Will
iam 'Westman, an employe of the
Bridal Falls Lumbering company.
The company get their logs awa
up on the mountain, about GOO
feet above the mill. The logs are
slid down on skids by means of a
long cable and donkey engine, and
they come down very rapidly.
Westman was sitting on a rock or
bank about twenty-five or thirty
feet from the skids, and a large
log in its descent struck some
thing and bounded off towards
Westman, and before he could
move out of the way struck him
on both feet, mashing them into
On examination it was found
that Westman's left leg was brok-

tides of bone were sticking through
the flesh. The right leg was brok
en in three places and a gash cut
across the ankle clear into the
joint. Dr. Saylor found amputa
tion in both cases necessary. The
left leg was taken off about four
inches below the knee and the
right leg about six inches below.
After the operation Westman was
brought to this city on a night
freight train and taken to the
Good Samaritan hospital where at
last accounts he was resting easy.
He is 23 years of age, of good con
stitution and it is believed he will
pull through. Oi'cgonian, 21.
The American ccnsul at Dres
den, in his report to the secretar3T
of state, says: "An important fac
tor here is the labor of dogs. I
have heard it estimated that
women and dogs, harnessed to
gether, do more hauling than the
railroads and all other modes of
conveyance of goods united. Hun
dreds of small wagons can be seen
every day on all the roads leading
to and from Dresden, each having
a dog for the 'near horse' har
nessed, while the 'off horse' is a
woman, with her left hand grasp
ing the wagon tongue to give it
direction, and the right hand
passed through a loop in a rope
which is attached to the axle, bind
ing her shoulder. Thus har
nessed, women and dog trudgo
along together", pulling miraculous
loads in all sort of weather."

July of the state board of unmi-

MURDERED BY PREJUDICE.
Thousands of men die every day
who might be saved. Prejudice has
murdered many a man and woman.
If it were believed that the sum of
disease could be redueed by phys-ic
much would be gained. Tlie night
mare of death would not frighten us
as it does. In our modern civiliza
tion we ought reasonably to expect
disease to settle upon us because we
do so much to attract it; because we
so often and so steadily expose our
selves to it. At the same time we
all ought to understand, as a part of
our rudimentary education, that to
save ourselves from the effects of
such exposure some kind of fortifica
tion should be built around our vital
forces lest the enemy carry us, as it
wore, by a sudden onslaught. For
many years the unprejudiced have
used Bhaxdretu's Pills in this way
and they have proved a most effect
ive wall against the approach of dis
ease. Stop the daily murders we
had almost said suicides by using
