WEDNESDAY, ..SEPTEMBER 4, 1SS9.
Thebe are eleven or twelve thou
sand less Chinese now in British Co
lumbia than there were some time
ago. The S50 head tax has its effect.
The omission o any reference to
the Behring sea difficulty of the posi
tion the British government intends
taking in queen Victoria's speech pro
roguing parliament recently has
caused great indignation among the
Ax English syndicate is negotiating
for the purchase of all the American
tanneries. Ten million dollars have
.already been pledged for the purchase
of New England and New York tan
neries, and 50,000,000 more will be
expended to secure the others.
A Brooklyn man who has made a
calculation of the sums or. money
which Americans have distributed
during the last ten years to those sud
denly deprived of property, has esti
mated that 20,000,000 have been
contributed. This shows that the
Americans are equally energetic in
making money and in giving it away.

AN TTGLY DISCOVER.
A. Report That Should Be Read.
"A recent analyzatlon in. Philadelphia by ft
'celebrated chemist of ten popular brands o!
earsaparilla discloses the astonishing fact that
these ten samples of blood purifiers (?) con
tained In the aggregate- sixteen different min
erals, eleven of which were active poisons.
Iodide of potash was discovered in every sam
ple, mercury was found in all but two, while
arsenic existed in six of the ten brands. Not
ono brand was the pure article."
A reporter took tho abovo clipping to E. W.
Joy, tho manufacturer of Joy's Vegetable Sar
Eaparilla. Jlr. Joy exhibited no surprise. He
eald druggists knew it Ho said be long ago
eaw the crying need for a safe and absolutely
pure vegetable preparation of Sarsaparilla,
hence his was named Joy's vegeiablt sarsapa
illla, becauso it contained nothing but pure
syrup of sarsaparilla, combined with thopura
Ike potash Earsapanllas, it ddesuot force Inl
purities through tho skin but stimulates tho
various secretive organs, tnereuy correcting
functional derangements and eliminating all
lmpurltiy through tho natural channels.
San Fransitw Examiner,
Felled By Electricity.
Hitherto machines for felling trees
havebeen driven by steam power, but
this is sometimes inconvenient, espe
cially in thick woods, and electric
power has recently been adopted in
the tJaliciaii forests. Usually in such
machines the trunk is sawed, but in
this case it is drilled. "When the wood
is of a soft nature the drill has a
sweeping motion and cuts into the
trunk by means of cutting edges on
its. sides. The drill is actuated by an
electric motor mounted on a carriage,
which is brought up close to the tree
and shackled to it The motor is
capable of turning round -its vertical
axis, and the drill is geared to it in
m such a manner that it can turn through
"an arc or a circle and make a sweep
ing cut into the truuk.
The first cut made, the drill is ad
vanced a few inches and another sec
tion of the wood is removed in the
same way until the trunk is half sev
ered. It is then stamped to keep the
cut from closing, and the operation
continued Until it would be unsafe to
go on. The remainder is finished by
a handsaw or an ax. The current is
conveyed to the motor by insulated
leads brought through the forest from
a generator placed in some conven
TIic Verdict Unanimous.
W. D. Suit, Drugcist. Bippus, Ind.,
testifies: "I 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," Bellville,
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 mac tne verdict is unanimous
that Electric Bitters do cure diseases of
the Liver, Kidneys or Blood. Only a

A CLOSE CALL FOR ROBERT.

in jail here on a charge of assaulting
Miss Minnie Saunders, escaped mich

numbering 100 had been organized to
take Gray from jail andlyuohhim.

it was found that a majority of two
were opposed to lynching, and the

A PHYSICIAN'S OPINION.
"I have been practicing medicine for
twenty years and have never been able to
put up a vegetable compound that would,
like Simmons Liver Regulator, promptly
and effectively move the Liver to action,
and at the same time aid (instead of weak
ening) the digestive and assimilative
powers of the system."
