A NOBLE EXAMPLE-
The late Samuel Brown was a
merchant of Boston, Mass. When
the elder" Quincy was mayor he
saw the necessity of removing the
alms-house and the house of cor
rection to South Boston. Mr.
Brown owned a very large vacant
estate where the buildings now
stand, and Mr. Quincy called upon
him and asked the price of the
estate referred to. The reply was,
"$30,000:" Mr. Quincy said that
would do, and asked thirty days'
refusal and a bond of i, in order
to endeavor to persuade the city
council to agree to the measure.
Mr. Brown replied that he would
give no bond, as he said his word
was always his bond.
The mayor took his word, and
in twenty-eight days had obtained
the proper authority, and again
waited on Mr. Brown, saying that
he had come to completo the sale
of the land.
"What land?" asked Mr. Brown.
"Why the South Boston land
we spoke of," said the mayor.
"At what price, sir?" asked the
"Thirty thousand dollars," re
plied the latter, "the price agreed
"Did I say that amount, sir!"
"Have you any writing to that
'No sir, none,"
"Well," said Mr. Brown, "since
you were here I have been offered
$G0,000 cash for it, and you expect
me to sell it lor 3U,UUU to the
"I do," replied Mr. Quincy,
"because you agreed to."
"Have you any proof of that?"
"Yes; 1 am the witness."
'But you, being an interested
party, cannot be & witness. Have
you any other witness or proof,
and do you wish me to refuse $G0,
000 for the land and sell it to the
city for $30,000?"
"You have no bond for it, have
you, Mr. Quincy?"
"None, sir, whatever," replied
the mayor,' stretching himself up
with great dignity "none what
ever but your word, and that, you
said, was your bond."
"And," replied Mr. Brown,
stretching himself up with equal
dignity, "so it is. My word is mv
bond, and for $30,000 the land fs
yours." iVct" York American
To old persons and those who fear to
derange their stomachs Simmons Liver
Uegnlator presents Itself as a most
admirable reme-!y. Owing to its mild
action it can be taken by the weak and
debilitated at all times and under any
circumstances with perfect safety. One
of the most venerable of the U. S. Sen
ate, the late A. IJ. Stephen', of Ga., said
"Simmons Liver Regulator is mild and
suits me better than more active rem
edies."' Political Curiosities.
Three sets of voters are most
earnestly in favor of president
Cleveland's re-election by reason
of his attitude toward a question
upon which they are in radical
disagreement with each other.
First, the moralists, who think
that the public would be better
according as all intoxicating drinks
are dearer, lhey are for Cleve
land, because he is for maintaining
the internal revenue, whiskey tax
On the other band, the largest
makers of intoxicants, the beer
brewers, are for Cleveland, be
cause they think that with whiskey
kept up in price the field for their
product is proportionately protect
ed, and'thus their business will be
And, of course, the manufactur
ers of whiskey, the great whiskej'
trust, although beer is their most
aggressive and successful enemy,
follow the brewers in preferring
Mr. Cleveland because the piesent
whiskey tax is the very foundation
of their business. Without it the
trust would burst. N". Y. Sun.
Druggists and all others who
sell Ayer's Ague Cure are authqr
ieed to guarantee a cure in every
instance. Try this medicine first.
Fortunes are made by taking
opportunities; character is made
by making them.
For the complexion use Ayer's
Sarsaparilla. It brings blooming
health to wan cheeks.
The best excuse is to have none.
"Poor Kansab has the cyclone
again, and bad, too, while the Pa
cific coast sections that are bidding
so loudly and high for eastern im
migration, smile and say, 'look at
us.' Kansas got rid of the grass
hopper but it somehow can't shake

unteer. In Oregon we can well
say, "Look at us!" Here wc have
no cyclones, blizzards, tornadoes,
cold winters, or hot summers; no
drouth, no failure of crops, no
chintz or potato bugs, Severe
thunderstorms arc unknown; 90
degrees is a high temperature in
Oregon, and 20 degrees (12 below
the freezing point,) is cold. The
grass is green the entire year.
Flowers bloom in the open air in
February. Rain fall always suf
ficient, but not excessive as it is
along tho Atlantic and Gulf states,
and a failure of crops is yet to be
recorded. This year strawberries
were ripe on April 25th, new po
tatoes were dug on May 1st, cher
ries were ripe on May 1st, and
raspberries were ripe on May 24th.
Frosts seldom do any darrrago
after May 10th. This year the last
frost to do any damage occurred
April 10th. Fruit trees arc al
ways heavily laden. The Oregon
apple is unsurpassed and keeps for
12 months. Oregon raises the
finest prunes in the world and
thousands of acres of fine land for
fruit culture are now uncultivated.
Snow falls about ten day's in a
year, some years more, some none
at all, and it never remains on the
ground any length of time west of
the Cascades, bo, "Look at us."

Lively Times on The Grand Ooulee.
Stokaxe Falls, July 18. The
Northern Pacific and Seattle &
Lake Shore are still disputing the
pass through the grand coulee.
Tho Northern has 213 men, and
the Seattle road 120 at work. The
Northern is working day and night
and hiring all the men it can get
at $2.25 for day men and S3.2B for
night. The Seattle men have de
serted in largo numbers to the
Northern because the former was
paying in time checks and the
latter in bank checks. The Seat
tle men captured the cut of the
Northern, who only succeeded in
dislodging them by putting in
blasts about four feet from where
they were working and firing them
off every few minutes.
