ties. The land in Klickitat is chiefly
open and suitable for stock and
grain. The remaining land lies west
of the Cascade range and is chiefly
heavily timbered, a large portion of

of fir. These lands when oleared are
excellent for agricultural purposes.

Ore from the recently discovered
ledge on the Willapa was senf to San
Francisco by John Wood of South
Bend, to be assayed and returns are
expected dally. Some of the rock
was sent to Portland, and an assay
disclosed over 86 of silver to the ton,
with a percentage of copper, and the
ore sent to San Francisco is much
better looking than the first lot. It
is free milling ore and can be worked
very cheaply, and Mr. Wood believes,
from present indications, that it will
pay to work, although he does not ex
pect very large returns. The ledge
is very extensive, and is within about
four miles of the Nasel. It is to be
hoped that it will turn out rich and
pay for working it. Tournal.
Tho two oar!oad3 of 11 sticks of
Oregon fir, that were consigned to J.
Fraser, were on the team track of
the Chicago and Rock Island road,
near Taylor and State streets last
week. The timber was snbseauentlv
deposited in the yard of the Marsh
and Bingham comoanv. north nier.
They were lately described in the
Lumberman as ranging from 16 to
22 inches in diameter, and from 44 to
50 feet in length. Four of them were
purchased by George Halket, boat
builder and illagstaff maker, east end
Kinzie street bridge, who will con
vert them into tall flag poles. The
timber opened out as sound ns a dol
lar, the knots in the heart being
small and without the slightest sign
of rot. This exterienoa was hiffhlv
satisfactory to Mr. Fraser and the
boat builder, and both are now ready
to swear to the value of Oregon fir.

The modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclu
sively that more persons die from dis
eases of the Throat and Lungs than
any other. It is probable that every
one, without exception, receives vast
numbers of Tubercle Germs into tho
system and where these germ3 fall
upon suitable soil they start into life
and develop, at first slowly nud is
shown by a slight tickling sensation
in the throat and if allowed to con
tinue their ravages they extend to lhe
lungs producing Consumption and to
the head, oausing Catarrh. Now all
this is dangerous and if allowed to
proceed will in time cause death. At
the onset you must act with prompt
ness; allowing a cold to go withont

ME STEAHEE TELEPHONE.
A Flattering Reception to The New
Six months ago the steamer Tele
phone wa3 burned at Upper Astoria,

Scott beaching the vessel and every
one on board getting safely on shore.
The work of building a new boat
was began as soon as possible and
yesterday the new Telephone rounded
Tongue Point on her first trip to
Astoria, wnere a nearly welcome
Her appoaranco had been anx
iously looked for, and as she ap
proached the docks and wharves
were lined with spectators.
The new boat presented a fine ap
pearance as she came flyine alone
and rounding to floated up to the
old, accustomed landing place. Flam
were flying from prominent buildings,
the Western Ama'teur band was at
the wharf playing lively musio, the
steamers in part saluted the new
comer with repeated whistles, the
cannon on Hustler's dook boomed
out a welcome, and cheer upon oheer
arose from the assembled crowds for
the new steamer.
As soon as the gang planks had
been got out, and some of the passen
gers had got ashore, a throng of As-
torians passed on to the new boat to
see ana inspect ner. Uapt Scott, IS.
A. Seeley. nnd Parser Barnard were
happy and were the recipients of
nearty handshakes and congratula
tions on again appearing with so
splendid a boat.
In a few minutes thero wero peo
ple iu every nook and corner of the
boat from the bold to the pilot house,
looking aud. examining. The Aa-
torian tins previously published a
full account of the new craft, and it
need but be said that she is a longer
boat thau the old Telephone and in
many respects an improvement over
the craft Capt Scott say? that she
is satisfactory in every way and that
he believes she is the fastest steam
boat on the Columbia river. "As
soon as things get limbered up,
and the machinery gets going, he
win let her out some day and see
what she can do. Yesterday the
boat came down with 100 pounds of
steam, iiu being regulation, and
made her regular landings "just tho
same as it nothing had happened.
She passed tho railroad bridge at
Portland at 7:03 yesterday morning;
St. Johns 7-31; mouth of the Willam
ette at 7:54; left St Helens nt 8:15;
left Ealama at 927; left Rainier at
10:07; left Skamokawa at 1232, and
arrived here at two o'clock. All
along the river it was a continual
ovation, people cheering as she passed ,
and nt every landing place crowding
aboard "to see tho new boat."

fine piano, and books and papers lie
within easy reach.
By tho timo these nasty notes were
penciled the familiar tones of the
whistle had been twice heard, and at
three o'clock the Telephone cast off
nnd started for Portland on her first
up trip, her flags and streamers flut
tering in the breezo, the blue water
lapping her lines and gleaming in the
brilliant sunlight, nnd her decks
crowded with passengers, a straight
column of white steam from her
white collared smoko stack, 03 with
splashing wheel and rushing prow
she started on her career, receiving a
parting cheer from those who had
remained to see her off.
