Colonel T, E. Hogg, president of

About a year ago the former claims

possession, for which reason suit is

Ho believes ho has a cue to the per

Even sheriffs cannot afford to work

men, says the MM, who can indulge
in that luxury.
John Miller Murphy, who has been
running a Democratic newspaper at
Olympia for twenty-four years and

It is a glittering prize and is worth,
some say, S900 a year. God moves in
a mysterious way, His wonders to
perform. If John has a $900 note to

Whitcomb, Mrs. Archie Pease and

A member of tho house committee
on rivers and harbors writes that he
thinks that the appropriation bill will
amount to about 815,000,000 or S16,
000,000. This will give considerably
more than one-third more than the
appropriation recommended by tho
secretary of war to the various rivers
and harbors in the country. If the
bill passes tue no use and senate, and
is signed by the president, the money
for the prosecution of work on the
Columbia river bar may be available
about next July or August.
And now comes a dispatch about a
man in Ohio who got rich so fast that
he went crazy, so he did. There's
where a newspaper man has the bulge
on his confreres. He gets rich so
slow that there's no danger he'll over
go crazy over the sudden accumula
tion. At the rate of a dollar a week
it don't pile up fast. This item would
have gone into the editorial column

the grammar is a little shaky, and
we're short of leads this morning, so
it will have to take its chances among
From Colby, Kansas, comes a pa
per with a funny name, the Thomas
Cat. That lays over anything in the
way of a name ever seen on a paper
in this office. We have had a Yell
and a Bazoo nnd a Snorter and o
Rustler and a Key and a Bell and a
Boomerang but never before did this
chaste family journal seo a newspa
per with such a name as the Thomas
Cat. It is owned and edited by Jos.
A. Gill, who practiced law in this city
for some timo and afterward owned
and edited tho Pacific Journal. In

A short time ago Capt. Chas. Wil
loughby of tho Quinault Indian reser
vation, captured on tho Quinault
river a strange and unknown fish of
large size, which ho at once sent to
the Smithsonian institute at Wash
ington, for tho big men who under
stand fish to examine. They sent
word to Capt. Willoughby that it was
not only a fish of a "new species," but
also a "new genus;" and that it was
christened "Acrotus Willoughby."
They (the scientists) intended to give
an account of this new fish to the
world. Capt. W. thinks it is an odd
fish, and that they have given it an
odd name, and it does appear that
even a fish doth sometimes immortal
ize the name of men.
The Astobian has been asked for
the proper spelling of the name of tho
place where J. B. Montgomery has
his sawmill, aud tho name of the
street that runs or swims past The
Astobian office, east by east, nor
nor'east, and the name of the hiyu
chier that escorted Lewis and Clarke's
party when they came out here and
invented this country. The afore
said name has been spelled Skamok
wa, and Skamokawa, and Squemoqu
he, and Squemoqua, and Skomokwa,
and Sqnomokwa, and a dozen other
ways. The best authority we can find

is Skemookweup, with the accent on
In yesterday's'0re7OJt"a7i '"s a state

ship Duleep Singh, which would im
ply to anyone not conversant with
the facts that that vessel was charged
one thousand dollars towage in on
the 3rd inst The captain is repre
sented as saying: "I refused to pay
such an exorbitant sum, but after
staying out another night, concluded
I could not help myself, so took tug
nest day." As a matter of fact Capt
Lower paid 8500 to have his ship
towed in. That is a pretty steep fig
ure, but there is no use in exaggera
ting these things and making them
out worse than they really are. The
truth is bad enongh without making
the charge out twice as much as the
bill that the captain signed shows it

G. G. GnEEN, Dear sir: I am fre
quently troubled with severe colds,
and the only remedy that will relieve
me of them is your Boschee's German
Syrup. I have used it for more than
12 years. It is a constant household
companion with me. Our merchant
here procured it first at my solicita
tion, nnd says he has sold a great
many bottles. It is a very popular
remedy in this section. Every per
son who has used it speaks in the
highest terms of its merits. I do not
know of a single case it has not
cured. I first used it in Vermont,
where I lived before coming here. I
advise everyone to use it, as it is cer
tainly the best cough medicine I have
ever known. I have tried nearly all
of them at different times.

SAVED MY MOTHER'S LIFE.
EVer since I can remember, my mother
has suffered from a milk leg. Nothing would
do her any good. She had tho best mediwl
talent, but they all did her no good. She suf
fered with her leg for thirty years and never
knew a well day. fehe would have to sit up
half tho night, holding up her leg and moan
ing. She had no peaco. She used all the
best-known remedies in the country without
effect, I asked her to try your UUTICURA
Remedies. Got her a bottle of Cuticura
Kesolvkst. and she took it, and has taken
in all about six or seven bottles, and now
she is a well woman to-day. Her leg is en
tirely healed, and her health was never bet
ter. She can go out every day, something she
has not done in ten years, so you see I cannot
