The eminent and successful electro
magnetic physicans, Drs. Darrin, have
discovered and ierfected a system of
treatment that has caused a revolu
tion in the treatment of female dis
cuses. "Wherever their treatment is
tested and known it has done away
-with so much nauseous drugs aud sur
gical operations whereby so many pre
cious lives have been lost
As a discovery, it ranks with Har
vey's discovery ot the circulation of
te blood. It lias proved in more
tfean a thousand cases of the worst
kind to be a positive cure for the fol
lowing female diseases:
Ovarian tumors, polypus ulceration
and dropsy of womb, irregularity, in
flammation, congestion and falling of
womb, Jeucorrhcea, painful and sup
pressed menstruation, flooding, fie
qucnt urination, bearing down pains,
backache, headache, hacking, cough,
aaelancholy, absence of ambition or
desire to live, or, in fact, any com
plaint having its origin in a disordered
state of the generative and accompany
iiig organs, whether from contagious
diseases, hereditary, accident, tight-
lacing, miscarriage or other causes.
Their method of treatment is harm
less, pleasant and mild. It is applied
directly to the womb without the use
of instruments; can be applied by the
patients themselves, urns securing
correct local treatment at home, and
its application is easy and simple. Its

THE TILLAMOOK WOODS.
Ronfii Experience of a Bewilderei
W. E. B. Foot of Stockton, CaL, who
recently returned from this vicinity,
relates his experience in a dense forest
to a Call reperter:
'I had urgent business at the county
scat of Tillamook county. The stage
road over the mountains was covered
with soft snow to a depth of six feet,
so the roads were impassable and I
took passage on a steamer from Port
land to Astoria, hoping to finish the
journey by sea from there on one of
the vessels plying along the coast
That same morning a rain-storm set
in and continued for several days.
So I boarded a little steamer which
took me over to Clatsop plains. There
I was lucky enough to find a wagon
going in my direction about twelve)
miles. The streams were swollen and j
would not permit of traveling on
horseback. 1 resolved to take my
chances. The tramp began on foot
Three miles beyond where I left tho
wagon I stayed over night in a farm.
house, aud after breakfast next morn
ing started out again on the trail into
the mountains. Just as I was about
leaving the beach trail a
sudden desire came over mo to go down
to a place where a ship was wrecked
one dark night upon the rocks and
none of the crew escaped. I followed
the shore southward about a mile past
the lighthouse. Taming longer than
I had intended at the spot tho tide
began to surround me and forced me
to climb the cliff. But the slope was
steeper than it at first seemed. It took
me over two hours to make the assent
of 600 feet
"By this time my enthusiasm over
the tramp began to weaken a little,
but I set off with a light heart, expect
ing to intercept the trail at right an
gles from the verge of the cliff. Only
a few paces inland I came to where
tome settlers had been felling trees
years before. The sun was then shin
ning, but it shone no more for mo for
two days following. I have spent
much of my lifetime in the woods and
have hunted them through in pursuit
of game, and had learned to tell the
four points of the compass where I
had ranged by theweather marks on
the trees, and thought I was perfectly
safe this time, but 1 was deceived.
"1 looked at the trees on the brink
of the precipice, where they wero ex
posed to the rain and sun, and got my
bearings, and started east into the
wilderness; but as I went the marks
became dimmer, the trees taller, their
tutted top3 denser, the underbrush
thicker, till finally I got to where the
sun never suone, nor the rain beat
upon the bark. The trees looked just
idike all around, and Nature's compass
"Added to this, trees that had be
come tired or. standing upngnt lor a
century past were lying prone upon
each other on tho earth's bosom, aud
I had to deviate from the straight line
to follow the meandering elk trails. '
"I kept on still thinking I had the
rignt course, out l found l Had made
a complete circle and came back to
where I had first started from the cliff.
I felt chagrined, but started again,
this time following the brink of the
cliff down the coast, but did not go a
inilo when 1 came to a deep canyon,
in the bottom of which I could see a
little stream. Near this place I found
where somebody had been before me
apparently lost also. In the edge
of a pool of water was a gallon coffee
can; on a stump was a pint bottle that
had been emptied, a teacup on the i
ground, a walking stick and some
shreds of cloth and other signs.
'I hurried away, crossing the can
yon through the thick brush and thorns
aad over aud under the logs, for I
had been told that the trail crossed
x uiutuic iiaix viwacu

y with briars and thorns, !
id Tvil' n.frtrJplvnr4- ovil '
but what was my astonishment and
dismay, to find again that very bottle
and can, and teacup, etc.
"I started out on the same route
again, for l knew that must be the
right direction, and it only needed to
be followed to find the trail. I crossed
the canyon once more. Then dark
ness commenced to settle, and tho
nmt had laden the tall trees with
water, so that at every recurring
breeze their waving boughs sent down
showers ot rain. The bushes were
wet and I was soaked through. I
saw that I had to spend the night
there, and immediately went to work
to build a fire. But the rains had
rendered everything incombustible in
the woods, and I had only a pen
knife to whittle with. Darkness of
the blackest night soon surrounded
me, and my attempt at building a fire
was a failure. I had not had a mor
sel since breakfast There were plen
ty of signs of elk, but tho signs of
bear were more numerous, where they
had come to the marshy places and
sought the esculent bulbs of skunk
cabbage. Tired and weary, I wrapped my
overcoat around me and laid myself
down on the damp ground in a cavity
beneath a fallen tree. When morn
ing dawned I resumed my struggle
for hours, till finally I camb again to
the sea coast on a promontory, which
a hurricauo had swept over a few years
before and laid that part of the 'for
est low. Gigantic trees were piled
upon one another in some places to
the height of 40 feet, and I had be
come entangled among them. After
I got free I saw that I went out to
where it was more open, but had not
gone far when I came upon the can,
bottle, teacup, etc., again.
"I had described another and larger
circle. Without waiting I started on
the same course across the canyon
again, for I could think of no other
way to go. For hours again I toiled,
crawling on my hands and knees un
der the brush, and again and again
scaling logs, till it was becoming late
in the day. -
"The mist came up again, the trees
were laden with their aqueous freight,
and the zephyrs shaking it down. I
saw by the fog that I was getting
again near the ocean. I thought sure
ly I had progressed tins time. All at
once I heard a wailing sound.
"I listened; I heard it again like a
steer lowing for his mate. The sound
"I thought I was close to the house
where 1 had expected to lunch the day
before. I started almost on the run
in its direction, when there was that
can, bottle, teacup, etc., again.
'I had repeated the circle. The ele
vation I had clung to so long was only
a circular table-land, and the canyon I
was in had its origin therein, the table
land being in the shape of a horse
shoe. I waded tho stream to the
beach, but it was then late and dark
ness had settled on tho lonely shore.
I gathered some dry pieces of drift
wood and built a fire and spent the
most of the night in warming myself
up and drying my clothes. After hav
ing taken a salt-water bath in the surf
I began to feel somewhat comfortable,
lhaa got past being hungry, bat
was somewhat weak. Mussels were
my only food. I was safe at last, and
able to continue my journey next
morning without stopping at the lone
house by the sea where I had expected
to lunch two days before, and to the
next house, sixteen miles beyond,
where after another surf bath, I stayed
'T passed the night in thinking of
the can, bottle, teacup, eta, and of the
man who left them there. Perhaps
he, too, had been lost as I was, and
