Last year when the talented lectur

Oregon, she met and became ac
quainted with Dr. Aug. Kinney, of
Astoria, one of the most prominent
temperance workers in Oregon. It
seems to have been a case of love at
first sight. After Miss White left, a
correspondence followed, which ri
pened into nn engagement, and the
affair is to be consummated with a
wedding to-day at Miss White's pres

Washington, Oct 26. The commis
sioner of agriculture has informed
the treasury department that cattle
driven from Sonora, Mexico, to Ari
zona imparts to the cattle in that
territory a contagious disease, known
as 8plenetio fever, from which large
numbers have died. He requests, in
view of the large cattle industry and
the great danger from the infection,
that importation of cattle from So
nora into that territory be prohibited
except at points where the animals
can be properly inspected. The
treasury department has accepted
the suggestion and prohibited impor
tation, except at Nogales and Yuma,
and at these points only when shown
that they are free from contagious
A CHINESE FIRECRACKER.
New YORK, Oot. 26. The following
circular has just reaohed the Chinese
merchants of New York from their
home offices in Hong Kong and
"Gentlemen: Yon afe hereby no
tified that you are to immediately
discontinue the purchase of the fol
lowing articles from American sources
and markets, as they are being se
verely boycotted by kim maid, or by
members of the tra,de3 union, or the
citizens 'of China. These articles,
now proscribed, ore petroleum, white
sheeting of all kinds, American cali
cos, watches, and American fire arms,
ginseng root and flour."
With the exoeption of a few Chi
nese firms in New York the above
circular will have no effect, but many
San Franoisco firms will feel its effect
severely, as several of them are heavy
dealers in American flour, petroleum
and cotton goods.
HARD TO ENFORCE.
El Paso, Oct 26. The task of en
forcing the Chinese exclusion act
proves to be no easy one along the
Mexican frontier. EI Paso, Texas,
and Paso del Norte, Mexico, are
separated only by the Rio Grande,
wmen is at present practically ford
able, and is always so for ten months
in the year. There are two or three
hundred Chinamen in these two cities
and heretofore they have crossed
freely from ono to the other. The
collector is enforcing the law as
fully as nis small force ot inspectors
will permit, but it is an easy matter
forUninese to violate them, more
over, the Chinamen can easily comn
np tuo Mexican railroad or cross the
country from Unaymas or other Pa
cific points, and slip across the line
into tho United States.
Washington, Oct. 26. O. M. Zu
Iick, governor of Arizona, in his an
nual report to the secretary of the
interior, states that during the year
there has been steady progress in
growth and development ot the terri
tory. The population has has largely
increased. Indian depredations are
things of the past, and life and prop
erty are now safe and law and order

tiovernor Zulick renews his recom

of public lauds in that territory and
urges an early settlement of private

Severe Scalp Disease Cared,
A few weeks ago my wife suffered very
much from a cutaneous disease of the scalp,
and received no relief frem the various rem
edies she used until she tried Cuticcea.
The disease promptly yielded to this treat
ment, and in a short while she was entirely
well. Thero has been no return ot the dis
ease, and Cuticuka ranks No. 1 in oar esti
mation for diseases of the skin.

To be freed from the dangers of suffocation
while lying down ; to breathe freely, sleep
soundly and undisturbed ; to rise refreshed,
head clear, brain active and free from pain
or ache ; to know that no poisonous, putrid
matter defiles the breath and rots away the
delicate machinery of smell, taste and hear
ing ; to feel that the system does not, through
its veins and arteries, suck up the poison that
is sure to undermine and destroy, is indeed a
blessing beyond all other human enjoyments.
To purchase immunity from such a fate
should be the object of all afflicted. But those
who hare tried many remedies and physi
