Centipedes are so common in
bunohes of' bananas that they have
ceased to excite remark. At Couch
Clinton's, however, a few days ago,
three centipede's eggs were found,

the top of a well chalked billiard cue
as anything else.

He spent yesterday afternoon in go

and noting the machinery, and appli

scarf This calls to mind the six-year-old
girl in the Harbor mission
school, who was rather mixed in her
scripture, and in trying to say, "And

she got it, "And lo, a greater than
Sullivan is here." This was, by the
way, a week after the John L. Sulli
van Combination had appeared.
Recently, pays the News, governor
Pennoyer sent a requisition to the
war department, asking for arms for
the Oregon National Guard. To the
communication an answer has been
received, which is signed by commissary-general
It. Macfeely, acting
secretary of war. This letter has
been forwarded by the governor to
adjutant-general Shofner. It states
that the requisition should state the
necessity for arms, plainly and suc
cinctly set forth. Then the same will
receive due consideration. The gen
eral tone of the letter is favorable,
and adjutant-general Shofner has
every hope of obtaining the much
needed supply of arms, although the
state already has her quota.
Head the hospital reports, read the
mortuary reports, read the medicine
publications, read the daily news
papers, and learn how wide-spread is
heart disease, how difficult of detec
tion it is to most people, how many
and how sudden are deaths it causes.
Then read Dr. Flint's Treatise on
Heart Disease, and learn what it is,
what causes it, what diseases it gives
rise to, what its symptoms are, and
and how it may be attacked. If you
find that you have heart disease,
ask your druggist for a bottle of Dr.
Feint's Heart Remedy. The treat he
may be had on application to

THE OLDEST PIONEER.
The question is being discussed by
the papers of the state as to who is
the oldest pioneer and it appears to
be settled that the honor belougs to
Jean Baptiste Gargnier, who is now
living at Siuslaw. I had an oppor
tunity of seeing the old gentleman
very recently and eugaged in a long
talk with him. Mr. R. A. Benpell, of
Newport, accompanied me-aud made
it a special business of interviewing
him, and I had expected before this
would have given all the facts to the
public through the public press, and
I suppose he will yet do so. There
fore not wishing to forestall Mr. Ben
sell, I will merely eav that the old
Kfcentleman'fl mind seems lo be very
clear and he is very positivo abput
events, but seems to fail in remem
bering dates, which, however, is not
unusual with people at his ad
vanced age. Some correspondents
have fixed the year of his arrival
on this coast at 1S2-L Others say
1819. Now the old gentleman says
positively that there was .no set
tlement at Astoria, or no white
men here when he arrived.
No one but Indians and
ho came here and traded with them.
This would fix his arrival at a much
earlier period, certainly as early as
1810. And this would make him an
older man than he thinks be is, as he
claims to bo in his eighty-seventh
year. 1 am inclined to thing that he is
past ninety years of age. and that he
came here very young. I can hardly
think that he can be. mistaken abont an
event so important as the settlement
of Astoria, If there were white men
living here when he came ho would
be most likelyto remember it. And
on this point I asked him repeatedly
and he positively asserted that there
wa3 no "Fort George" or no settle
ment here when he came.
I will say in conclusion that I
think the pld man is poor, and it
might be a nioe thing for the histor
ical society to make some effort in
his behalf. There is no doubt that
many people would contribute to
wards the oldest pioneer, if the effort
were made by some influential per
son or society. - J. J. Winant-.

to good naturo.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of tho 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, lato
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made the American people a
nation of dyspeptics.

done a wonderful work iu reforming
this sad business - and making the
American people so healthy that they

A Yoniiz Lady's Hide on a, Tom Cod.
A young man had been out in tho
forenoon and had caught an enor
mous torn cod, weighing probably 30
pounds, which ho had placed in a
large - hogshead and so kept alive.
When the party went into the water
the young man harnessed up the cod
with stout twino and placed him in
tho water. He had a great deal of
sport, and finally, after a great deal
of persuasion, allowed tho young lady
to try his sea horse. A life preserver
was procured and fastened on her,
and she grasped tho reins holding
tho largo cod. All was soon put iu
readiness, nud the fish, without the
least persuasion, started on a gait
that would have made a locomotive
turn green with envy. "When she
had gone out far enough and thought
it time enough to return she endeav
ored to regulate the steed's course,
but alas to no avail. After some
speculation she rapidly camo to
the conclusion that it would
bo much belter to drop the
reins and lose the cod than to get
lost herself. In attempting to drop
the Hue it caught in one of the lower
buttons of her dress, and, in endeav
oring to unfasten it, it became eu
tagled abont her legs. Meanwhile
the cod was rushing wildly out to sea.
This state of affairs continued for
nearly fifteen minutes, until some ono
recognized her dauger and Btarted in
her wake with a sailboat The ex
hausted cod soon became tired of his
race and concluded to stop for breath,
and the terribly frightened lady was
rescued, and fainted in the boat Re
storatives were applied and she was
soon able lo tell the story of her ad
venture. -'1 J'ffllS.

doubt it will be missed, but you will

How to Keep Comfortable.
Well, having got the women and chil
dren in tho country, what is tho best
thing for the men to do?
To the man who is ablo to send his wife
and children to tho country, tho con
veniences of bathing are ordinarily ac
cessible. Let him take a bottle of good
size and pat into it an ounce of camphor,
a cap of sea salt. There are two ways of
getting sea salt. You can go to the
druggist and pay 4 for a hundred
pounds, or you can go to tho butcher's
and bay the same thing at forty cents a
bushel, tho only difference between the
purchases being that tho druggist sends
it home in a nice, pretty box, while tho
butcher very likely would send it down in
a bag. However, fill tho bottlo with hot
water, let it stand until it cools; buy a
fair-sized sponge. When you get up in
the morning pat in a pint glass of water
half a capful of this concoction, well
shaken, and sponge yourself thoroughly,
and you will be amazed to see what a
dirty creature you are. I know a man
about my size who went tho other day to
a Turkish bath was rubbed and scrubbed
and turned out with apparent neatness,
if not dispatch. On retiring an hoar
later ho sponged himself with my eau
sedatlf, and when ho got through the
water was blacker than his boot. The
ammonia cleanses the skin, the camphor
strengthens the nerves, and tho ssa salt
freshens you up generally. As hearty a
breakfast as can be enjoyably enten
should bo taken, and iced water very
sparingly indulged in. Then go to work.
