The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in the form ol
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General "Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for giving tono and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food,. restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing the blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, "Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that T rnnlil nnt. tm nn
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended me to try Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and I am now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. "Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have

D. D. S., Greenville, Tenn.
It would be impossible for me to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
the care of. various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Harley, Springlield, Mass.
I liavo been greatly benefited by the
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates the system, regu
lates tho action of the digestivo and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes the
blood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood imrifier yet discovered.

THE MAGIC LINE.
A Day May Be Lost or Won Accord
ing as Ton Sail.
The fust land that the new day
dawns upon is Easter island, about
230 miles west of the coast of
Chile, South America; that is to
say, this 14th of October breaks
there within a few hours of the
13th having broken on the Ameri
can coast to the east, and the two
days run on alongside the 14th
in Easter island and places west,
the 13th in all places on the Amer
ican continent. "We may, there
fore, realize this idea that 3:32
an3r afternoon of our lives in As
toria, the next day is commencing
on the world, and is to be found
at this little island in the Pacific
ocean, whence in due course it will
travel round to us. But to have
thus the start of the world is not
an unmitigated advantage of these
islanders. Suppose one of them
sails east to America, what is the
result? He will find the' keep
the day here under a different
date, and he will have to reckon
one day in his calendar twice over
to put himself right with their no
tions. On the other hand, if an
American crosses from east to west
this wonderful magic line where
the da begins, he will find the
dates in this fresh part of the
world are one in advance of him,
and he must needs strike a day
out of his calendar to keep up with
the times. This fact was curiously
illustrated in the case of Ma
gellan, tho Portuguese captain,
who sailed around the world from
east to west in 1522, and having
crossed the magic line of "day's
birth" in his wonderings, his cal
endar became, of course, a day in
the rear. The sailors weie com
pletely ignorant of this, and find
ing, on lauding at home, that their
Sabbath was falling on a Monday,
they accused one another of tam
pering with the reckoning. It was
not for some time that the true ex
planation was discovered. The
converse case is made the hinge of
the plot in Jules Verne's "Round
the World in Eighty Days," where
the author depicts an eccentric
Englishman, Phjneas Fogg, who
made a wager that he would go
round the world in eighty days.
He accomplished his feat in whv
he thought was eighty.one da:
but on arriving in Loudon, fo:n-ii
his friends anxiously expecting
him, and discovered he had just
won his wager. lie had crossed
the magic line eastward, and had
forgotten to subtract the da he
had thus gained.
To put the matter another way:
In sailing round the world east
ward, the days are each a little
less than twenty-four hours, ac
cording to the speed of the ship,
as the sun is met every morning a
little earlier. These little differ
ences added together will amount
in the course of the circumnaviga
tion to twenty-four hours, giving
the sailors an extra day, not in the
imagination, but in sober truth, as
they will actually have eaten an
extra day's food and consumed an
extra day's grog. On the other
hand, in sailing westward, the sun
is overtaken a little each day, and
so each day is rather longer than
twenty-four hours, and clock and
watches are found to be too fast.
This also will amount, in sailing
round to the starting point again,
to one whole day, by which the
reckoning "has fallen in arrear.
Tho eastern ship, thn, has gained
a day, and the western ship has
lost one, leading to this apparent
paradox, that the former ship has
a clear gain of two whole days
over the latter, supposing them to
have started and returned to
gether. When your blood is impover
ished the remedy is at hand. Take
Death of Jas. Orummie.
At 7 o'clock last evening, says
the ATeics of the 3th, James
Crummie, a logger, was brought
to St. Vincent's hospital for med
ical treatment The unfortunate
man came from Cathlamet, where
he met with an accident by which
both legs were horribly fractured.
It was apparent from the moment
of his entrance to the hospital
that death would result in a short
time, as he was sorely hurt. At
12 o'clock Crummie's pains ceased,
and he crossed the great divide.
Indeed, death to a being in his
condition ttrs a mercy.
j JOAQUIN MILLEE'S SON.
Sketch of the Life of the Young Man
' Now in Jail.
The case of Hah Miller, who is
confined in the county jail at Ne
vada City, Cala., to await his trial
for horse stealing is a peculiar one,
considering the intelligence of the
young man and the national rep
utation achieved by his father.
The name of Joaquin Miller is
known wherever the English Ian
guage is spoken. There is pretty
clear prool ot tlie young man's
guilt. He was caught with the
horse. He seems to nave been
knocked around from pillar to
post without the influences of a

Elk river, Curry count Or., on
the 25th of July, 1860. A year
after his birth his father, Joaquin
Miller, removed to Canyon City,
Grant count', where he located a
mine, which he afterward sold,
and in 1S74 went to Lane county,
where he established a printing
office. Hal was at that time five
years old. His mother and father
then separated, his mother taking
the three children. His father
went east, whore he has been un
till the past few years. His moth
er afterward left Lane county and
went to San Francisco, where she
delivered lectures and wrote for
the papers, trying to earn money
enough to give her children an
education. Hal was the youngest
child. He -ot very little school
ing in San Francisco. "When they
had been in San Francisco a little
over a year, Mrs. Miller's health
failed and she took a trip to the
east, sending Hal to liw with his
aunt at Coos bay. His uncle and
aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Hilborn, lived
on a hirm tiiree miles from the

and so he well earned the 'it;l

of two years his mother returned
from tin east and took him t.

she became worried over her des
