emptying of lodldo of potash into a stomach
already distressingly delicate was disastrous,
almost prostrating ber before tho mistake was
rectified. She then called upon Mrs. Fowler,
of 327 Ellis street, whoso name was among
those cured by Joy's Vegetable Earsaparilla.
Mrs. Fowler said it was true that it had cured
her. Again reassured, tho vegetable com

action of Its vegetable stimulants upon the
liver, kidneys and digestivo organs, and its
warm stomach, tonics, were tho very things

Symptoms, Effects, Treatment And Cure,
by Drs. Darrin, The Electric Phy
sicians. Among the chief chronic diseases.
which affect thehujnan frame, catarrh
is the most prevalent, most offensive,
most productive of discomfort, and a
variety of distressing and dangerous
complications. Its earliest and most
prominent symptom is a discharge
fromthe head, varying in its nature
in different cases, and even in the
same individual at different times. It
may be athin, colorless, acrid fluid,
or a glairy, starch like substance..
Generally, however, it is thick, pur
ulent or mucopurulent matter, either
ash-colored, greenish-yellow, or of a
deep green tint, occasionally streaked
or flecked with blood. So copious
and offensive is the discharge in many
cases that patients express the belief
that their heads are one "mass of cor
Much of the discharge passes back
ward, either dropping in the throat or
collecting as a tough, viscid, tenacious
phlegm, behind and above the soft
palate to the passage between the
throat and head. Its lodgment em
barrasses respiration and creates a
constant and irresistible desire to re
lieve the discomfort by drawing the
offensive substance into the throat by
a loud insufflation through the nose,
so as then to be able to eject it by a
In the more advanced stages the
discharges are generally of an offen
sive odor, causing great annoyance to
one's friends and to the patient him
self, while his sense of smell remains.
This annoyance from the odor be
comes almost beyond endurance, es
pecially wiien the disease assumes
the form of ozama, and the delicate
bones of the nose becomes diseased.
DEEORMTTY OF THE NOSE.
In cases where the bones of the
nose become diseased, not only is the
offensiveness of. the breath greatly
increased, but there i3 a liability to
serious personal deformities, among
which are flattening or the nose.
BAD EFFECTS OF CATARRH.
The swallowing of catarrhal secre
tions deranges the functions of the
stomach, causing indigestion and loss
of appetite and health. Debility pale
ness, lassitude, headache and disturb
ance of mind soon follow. In some
instances the mental affection is one
of irritability, the patient being un
duly annoyed by all the little perplex
ities of life. In others the prominent
feeling is that of melancholy or de
pression of spirits, when the invalid
can see no hope in the future for him
self or his affairs. Catarrhal deafness
is almost sure to follow in a majority
CONSUMPTION AND DEATH.
Catarrhal affections, unchecked by
treatment, are prone to extend by con
tinuity of surface along the natural
air passages to the substance of the
luugs, thus causing consumption and
death. In this connection it should
also be remembered that the air
which enters the lungs of a catarrhal
patient is, every breath of it, poisoned
by exhalations from the foul secre
tions, of the diseased surface. By
such air the blood cannot be properly
purified, and made fit to impart
healthy vigor in its unending circuit
to all and every part of the animal
mechanism. One would suppose that
that tliis cousidertion alone would be
sufficient to induce every person thus
afflicted, to make early application for
TREATMENT AND CUBE.
By the medical and electric system
of treatment, which Drs. Darrin have
adopted and pursued for years with
uniform success, a complete and nec
maneut cure of this repulsive disorder
can be effected. This they have dem
onstrated in thousands of cases, rep
resenting the disease in every form
and all its various stages of develop
ment. Their applications are made
to reach the diseased parts in the
most direct and positive manner, in
stantaneously penetrating every cell
and cavity of the head, communi
cating with the nostrils, and subject
ing every portion of the membrane
to the healing action of the remedy
employed, with the most beneficial re
sult, and without causing the least
pain or unpleasant sensation. The
affected cavities are thoroughly
cleansed from the incrustic morbific
matter, the offensive smell is re
moved and relief from other trouble
some symptoms is almost immediately
experienced. The discharge soon
diminishes.. irritation is allayed, tho
inflammation subsides, ulcerations are
made to heal, and finally a radical and
permanent cure is effected.
TERMS FOR TREATMENT.
Invariably in advanca When hun
dreds (and many of them living a day's
journey or more from the city) call on
the doctors every day, it would be im
possible to do a trust busmesa with
some, and do justice by all. The doc
tors have therefore decided to adhere
strictly to the advance paj'ment sys
tern, as the only true way of practic
ing their profession with the least pos
sible trouble to themselves and
patients. All should therefore note
this in contemplating a visit to them.
There Jterms of treatment, however,
are so 'low as to be within the reach
of all, and are made according to the
time ornumberof treatments required.
The only difference between Drs.
Damn's terms, and other physicians is
that the former are in advance, while
the other is surely due very soon after,
whether a cure has been effected or
None will please call for speculation
or idle curiosity, as hundreds are com
pelled to go away without seeing the
doctors. This might, to a great ex
tent be, avoided, were it not for the
fact that some delight in telling long

Of Snpeiintendence at The Locks.
From the tenor of correspondence
to The Dalles Times-Mountain eet'
regarding the government Avork in
that vicinity, things are run rather
laxly in that department. Says the
"We took a walk over the works,
and among other things .we saw was
a caisson so called, stone was cut, a
hole was'dug, a foundation of fine cut
stone was laid, barrels of cement, at
S3 per barrel was used, and the whole
was condemned. Thirty-two thousand
dollars sunk in the arrangement, and
now they are letting the earth cave in
upon it. As the boss of the stone
yard remarked to a prominent citizen
the other day, 'they are ashamed of
the d d thing, and are letting it
cave in to hide their work.' I im
agine he hit the truth about as near
that time as he ever did in his life
"About three years ago after they
had completed the plans for the gates
they were confronted with the idea
that when, the water rushed in it
would cause the boat to tip up on one
end. They then endeavored to con
trive a machine which they thought
would cause the water to run the en
tire length of the lock thus raising the
boat level as the lock filled. Said
machine is now back of the canal in
the woods where it can be seen any
day. Ignorant of a fact known to any
average school child twelve years of
age, viz. water will seek its own level.
"There is a law stating that eicrht
hours shall be considered a day on
government works. How well 'this
law is observed. Last winter the
workmen would go down into tho
canal groping their way in the dark
and stumbling over rocks and other
debris in the endeavor to reach their
destination. There they would have
to stay stamping their feet
to keep them from numbing
with the cold, or worrying around
in the drizzling rain until daylight
came in. At night darkness 'came
about five o'clock then would come
another time of waiting, the workmen
not even daring to take advantage of
the light to put their tools away.
All this time that embodiment- of
ignorance would be hoveriug near
fearful lest they should cheat the gov
ernment of a few minutes time wholly
useless to it."

"Another wonderful discovery has
been made and that too by a lady in
this county. Disease fastened its clutch
es upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severed tests, but her vi
tal organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed incessantly and could not
sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr,
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion and was so much relieved on tak
ing first dose that she slept all night
and with one bottle has been miracu
lously cured. II er name is Mrs. Luther
