refused the privilege of naming JLs

away all power from the foreman;
made him on.' a figurehead: he
couldn't control the engineer
couldn't suspend him, and the point
was no self consciousness, no glory,
but that to carry out the provisions of

city of Astoria, in relation to tho ap
pointing of engineers of the fire compan
ies r tho department.
Postmaster Hare was called on; he
was not in favor of the resolution.
While he didn't favor taking the ap
pointing of the engineer out of the
if he i hands of the company, yet he thought
that it was necessary to have some
fountain head; some source of author
ity. There was no need of making
any disturbance because one man had
been asked to quit.
B. S. Worsley thought that the law
creating the fire department was am
ple enough in its provisions to cover
all cases possibly arising. If there

A Letter from nn Eminent Physician.
Hit. Editer: At the risk of indorsing a
proprietary preparation, I have a few word
iu favor of a nci.7 laxative principle. But
first, how I came to discover it. A patient
asked about taking Joy's Vegetable Sarsa
parllla. As sarsaparillas usually coutaia
mercury or iodides I objected, and asked for
the formula, which findingpurely vegetable,
and so mild as to be to my mind almost
Inert, I consented. Jmagino my astonish
ment when perfect laxative action was re
ported. It has two great points, rirtt, being
purely vegetable, It Is (unlike mercury) not
cumulative in the system, being easily car
ried off by the digestive processes; and tccond.
It Is effective with a less quantity of the
cathartic principle than has hitherto been
attainable. It in this respect ranks 03 a
discovery, and approaches the ideal, viz.:
the least medicine consistent with the great
est good. It harmonizes natural laxativo
action and perfect safety, and should inter
est both the public and the profession.
