AN ANSWER DEMANDED.
Is There a Hidden Cause For Molt
Suffering? A Careful Investi
gation. The inhabitants of Boston and New
England have been considerably
awakened the past week over Borne
important facta which have come out
in articles in the papers as to the real
cause of most modern diseases. Every
one has known that there has been
some mysterious cause for unex
plained suffering that even the doc
tors could not account for. A hidden
disease has been shown to ba the real
cause of most so-called pneumonia,
convulsions, apoplexy, etc. If this is
true, it is of greatest importance that
ff vie understand it
tliia oiH in trinn. o
mis paper uaa col
lected facts from
which are given
Dr. J. H. Cutler,
rs wno resiaes at zu
reporteb'and Poplar street, said:
'doctor. "I have, in com
mon with all physicians, observed the
alarming increase of kidney diseases
leading to that fearful scourge .Bright's
disease, and have been constantly
seeking for the proper means of meet
ing it. I have been prescribing
Hunt's, Remedy for a great many of
my patients with great success. I
also administered it to my mother,
and with much benefit."
Mr. Samuel Littlefield, 1482 "Wash
ington street, said: "I was troubled
with kidney disease for years, which
finally turned to gravel." I would be
free from suffering for a long while,
and then have the most terrible pains
in my back, I also had inflammation
of the worst kind in my bladder, and
I was altogether in a fearful condition.
I went to several physicians, but all
to no purpose, and 'I found I was
erowincr verv feeble. A friend in
Maiden urged me to use Hunt's Rem
edy. He had been cured of gravel
and liver complaint by its use, and be
lieved it would help me. Well, its
effect was wonderful, and I cannot too
highly thank my friend for tho timely
recommendation he made. I wish
I could make every one know and
understand what a valuable med
icine it is."
Mrs. William Gray, 1416 Tremont
street, said: "I was troubled with
kidney disease for a number of years,
at times being so bad from swollen
limbs and .pains in the back that I
was completely under the doctor's
care. I received only temporary
benefit until I began using -Hunt's
Remedy, which cured me entirely,
and I cannot say too much in its
Captain Joseph L. Hayden, con
nected with the Walworth Manufac
turing Company, residing at 924 East
Fourth street, South Boston, cpoke
fa the fiigfir
terms of Hunt's
"of my friends in
have used it with
and would not be
without it. I em-
Sloyed it in my
imily when other
firoved wholly use
ess, and it was
remarkablo in its
results. It complete- well witiiout :
ly cured my wife of dyikg within.
pajn in the back."
Mr. H. Burney, baggagem aster uf
the Eastern Bailroad, declared that
he had used Hunt's Remedy in his
family for a long time, and would not
be without it. He had not onl v found
it good for Kidney complaints (a trou
ble with which all railroad men are
more or less afflicted) but his wife
had used it successfully in a severe;
case of what was, apparently, dys
pepsia. The uniform testimony which was
given to the worth of this Remedy in,
Boston was borne out by equally
strong statements from residents in
Mr. Joseph Q. Bicknell of Cam
bridgeport asserted that he had been
a great sufferer. The fluids he passed
were thick with brickdust sediment,
and were voided with the greatest
pain. Within four days from the
time he began using Hunt's Remedy
he passed a gravel stone lareer than
a pea, followed by other smairer ones.
A speedy cure was the result, and he
cannot recommend, the remedy too
Mr. George P. Cox, proprietor of
the last factory at Maiden, had seen
such wonderful effects of Hunt's Eem
edy among so many of his relatives
and friends that he was enthusiastic
in its favor. He had not only used it
himself with the greatest benefit, but
two cousinB, William W. and John F.
Cox, had experienced untold relief.
He would n'ot be without it if it cost
$5 a bottle.
Such statements lead us to the in
evitable conclusion that, while
Bright's disease of the kidneys is the
concealed and actual cause of many
somplaints which bear other names
It can be both met and cured. Let
ill readers look to their condition at
once, and thoroughly convince them
selves whether they are or are not in
perfect health, and then use that
means which has been proven, and
is known to be both pure, efficient,

ASTORIA, OREGON, SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, J 887.
Vast Timber fields Along live Eivers
Tributary to this Bay.
Directly south of Astoria and
across the peninsula upon which
the city stands is Young's bay, a
large inlet which receives no less
than five considerable streams
Lewis and Clarke's river, Young's
river, Klaskanine and the little
and big "Walluski. Each of these
streams runs out of a fine timber
country. Indeed, here as on the
Columbia river, the forest is con
tinuous and these streams which
drain it penetrate it in different
directions. In all these rivers
logging camps have been in op
eration for many years, and much
of the timber has been "logged
off' from the flats near the water,
but still there is a prodigious sup
ply. It looked to me as I passed
mile after mile of forest so dense
that the sun could not look in that
the supply was inexhaustible, but
in the lexicon of this age T know
there is no such word. In the
Walluski adjacent to Mr. J. C.
Trullinger's railroad (of which I
shall speak later) there is an avail
able supply of 200,000,000 feett
The figures are furnished by Air.
Trullinger, who controls the whole
district and uses it exclusively to
supply his mill at Astoria.
In this'district I only visited the
Walluski personally; hut from a
hisht near Astoria the country on
the opposite or south side of
Young's bay lies in plain .view,
and as far as sight could reach
in all directions, there lies a con
tinuous mass of sombre grei n
forest. Above Young's uver
falls, so I was informed
by Mr. Trullinger, there is a
large body of spruce and fir
available by skid road. On the
Lewis and Clarke there is a large
body of cedar as yet scarcely
touched. "How much available
timber is there on Young's bay
and its tributaries?" I asked Mr.
Trullinger. "One billion feet of
fir and spruce, not to mention
other timbers," he replied. This,
of course, applies to the timber
fields bordering upon navigable
water or within easy distance of
it. Further back there is equally
fine timber in much greater sup
ply. As yet loggers have not
been compelled to go far away
from navigable water, and ihe
vast timber fields which lie in
land have been deemed inaccessi
ble, as they are, practically, and
small pains taken even to explore
them. "A. J2".," in Ordyoniun.
EEM0TE TIMBEE SUPPLY.
Thousands of Acres Back Prom the
Eiver Eeserved for the Puture.
In districts reviewed above I
have scarcely looked beyond what
may be called the available supply,
and it should be known that in
land, away from and entirelv
beyond the reach of navigation,
there are timber fields equal in ex
tent. .to those which lie near the
water courses. These inland
fields are merely the extensions of
the forests which we have traversed
as they lie near the rivers. At
this time they are not considered
to be of great value, and they
will not, indeed, come into im
mediate value till the near fields
are exhausted, but they afford a
reserve supply which gives assur
ance of the practical permanence
of the lumber making industry at
Astoria. South of the Columbia
along the route traced above, lying
twenty miles or more inland,
there are ranges of timber which
will far in the future yield
hundreds of billions of feet, and
the same may bo said of the coun
try north and back from the river
on the Oregon side. I have been
shown sectional maps of the coun
try through which the proposed
Astoria and Forest Grove branch
of the Oregon & California rail
road will pass; and its whole
course lies through dense timber.
All of this belongs' naturally to
Astoria, and must in the natural
course of things and progress of
time come here for manufacture
into lumber. "A. -Z?V in Oregon

THE WASHINGTON SIDE.

ging iuaiiiuio -n-uuve.
The Washington side of the
Columbia river opposite and above
Astoria, within what may be
called her tributary temtorj, is
almost the exact counterpart of
the Oregon side, just reviewed.
There is, as on the Oregon side, a
wide and dense continuing forest
of yellow fir, spruce, cedar and
hemlock, penetrated at onei in
tervals by sloughs and streams, by
which large areas of country are
brought within easy distance of
Deep river is the first of these
openings, ana mere is, 10 put it

here available for logging by skid
roads. The Deep river forest
ranges over the divide to the
Nasel, a considerable stream which
puts into Shoalwater ba'. The
divide is not high, and a railroad
from Deep river would make the
vast Nasel timber fields tributary
to the Columbia river and Astoria,
A short distance above Deep
river, is Gray's river, where log
ging is in progress on a large
scale. It is estimated that not
less than 10,000,000 feet will be
put in this year. Here there is
another 1,000,000,000 feet availa
ble for logging by skid roads with
an incalculable supply in easy
reach bv the use of rails and
It would be only to repeat the
story over and over again to trace
the various openings up the river
for a distance of fifty miles. Ev
ery stream runs through a vast
timber region, and each brings
from 10,000,000 to 1,000,000,000
feet of logs within the. reach of
navigable waters- It should be
remembered that the- country is
not covered with patches of tini
ber, but that the-4brest is continu
ing along the river and reaches in
land from three to twenty miles,
making a district which has no
equal, for extent, in the whole
world, except it be on Puget
.sound. To say how much timber
13 availuole would be only to
guess, but the figures, could they
be known, would certainly run in
to many billions of feet. KA. II?

went into the yard for some wood,

by its mother. It was unable to
extricate itself, and was drowned
in less than six inches of water.
