What is this "nervous trouble" with
whioh bo many seem now to be af
flicted? If you will remember a few
years ago the word Malaria was com
paratively unknown, to-day it is;as
common as any word in tho English
languagej yet this word covers only
the meaning of another word used by
our forefathers in times past. So it
is with nervous diseases, as they nnd
Malaria are intended to cover what
our grandfathers called Billiousnoss,
and all are caused by troubles that
arise from a diseased condition of the
Liver which in performing its func
tions finding it cannot dispose ot the
b'.le through the ordinary channel is
compelled to pass it off through tho
system, causing nervous troubles,
Malaria, Billions Fever, etc. You
'who are suffering can well appreciate
a cure. We recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are mar
velons. Cheap Travel on The Colombia.
The war ot rates has begun and
anybody who can fish up a dollar ont
of his side pocket can have lots of
travel on the Columbia this summer,
The rate of 75 cents to Portland or
$1 tor the round trip made by the
O. B. & N. Co., was met yesterday by
the Telephone, which announces that
passengers will be carried to and from
Astoria to Portland for 91, orsl.WJ
for the round trip. It is possible
that eveu that rate will be reduced
before the summer is over, though
these rates are cheap enough. Too
cheap, a good many will say, as it
offers a premium for purchasers to
go to Portland to bny what they
would otherwise buy at home.
So far as practicable the people of
Astoria will stay by Capt. Scott, and
the Telephone. It was he that with
the Fleetwood first started the op
position on the lower Columbia that
for the past six years has proved so
successful, and whatever little ac
commodation the O. B. & N. Go. finds
it in its heart to grant Astoria is
largely due to the existence ot alert
and permanent opposition.
Tbe Verdict Unanimous .
W. D. Suit, Druggist Ulppus. Ind.,
testifies: "1 can recommend Electric
Bitters as the very best remedy. Every
bottle sold has given relief In every case.
One man took six bottles, and was cured
of Rheumatism of 10 years' standing."
Abraham Hare, druggist, Bellviile,
Ohio, affirms: "The best selling medi
cine I have ever handled in my 20 years'
experience, is Electric Bitters.'' Thou
sands of others have added their testi
mony, so that the verdict is unanimous
that Electric Bitters do cure diseases of
the Liver, Kidneys or Blood. Only a
