Devtob, CalorndQ, cau boast of
being cit that lias expended over
$10,000,000 on new buildings since tiie
first of last Jaauary, wliicli is far in
advance of any other year in llie his
tory of thk energeUc young city.
Fixanceal matters in the groat
monetary circles of the -world are
renaming a normal condition, and the
excitement over the temporary panic
in slocks and finances is gradually
subsiding. It will be belter for the
business of the country "when the
bkhmv market becomes settled.
Pubstdkntiai, aspirants have
already started in quite early, and
t icir personal friends are very active.
Frai this lime until the fall of 1892,
t'ae political fight will progress. Our
democratic friends feel so elated over
lhir TJotories in most of the states,
tint they imagine the presidential
plum is sure to fall into their basket,
hence the earnestness and the early
conirooeoeracnt of the movement.
Astoria would be glad to know
when she is to have the free delivery
system inaugurated. Our buildings
have beon numbered, the district
boundaries have been marked out
and the necessary documents for
warded to "Washington, and when
IXwon "Wanamakcrs assistants have
completed the circle of rod tape
reqTiiremouts, we shall probably hear
something in reference lo the letter
carriers for Astoria. '
Taxj; about potatoes! How is this
for a chum from Del Norte, Col., where
it is said that from one acre the yield
of potatoes was 50,852 pounds? There
were fifty rows, aud the spuds were of
the Barclay prolific variety, having
originally come from California. Four
teen men, aided by a Hoover potato
digger, were four days employed in
digging awl sacking the yield of this
one acre. That is a product worth
inetilxming, and who can excel it?
lUrmLYis the yecr drawing to a
do-o, and lmt little over five weeks
of 1S90 are yet lo come. The hopes
of a railroad for Astoria being com
menced this year show but liltfo signs
of frnitiou. yet we can almost hear the
nimble of. trains approaching more
fortunate, though, less favorable lo
calities. Shall we wall for ever, and
never see tin1 completion of a railroad
for this town? Every business enter
prise now almost donnant, would
swing into active vitality if there
was any prospect of a speedy com
mencement of work on the construc
tion of a road.

Eye, Head and Nervous Diseases, At

a Few Days.
Dr. Prentice "Will Cure the First Case
Of Cross-Eyes and Epileptic Fits
Free On the Day of IILs
Arrival in Astoria.
Those Who Wish to Have the Doctor Treat
Them Should Call Early, or Ther
3Iay Lose the Opportunity.
A man well known In this community
writes the following interesting letter:
'L was chopping a stnmp four weeks
ago, when a living chip struck me in
the eye; for a short time I was entirely
blind. Then partial sight returned
again. I nurtured nope and continued
to treat it at home, until ten days ago,
when 1 began to abandon hope of ever
seeing perfectly again, unless some
thing more than ordinary was done.
1 then counciled two of the leading
Oculists of Poitland, who told me one
eye would have to be cut out to save
the other. It did not exactly suit me to
have my eye cut out, and so I sought
other council. I went to Dr. Prentice,
the Oculist, then at Portland, and he
laughed at-thc idea of its being neces
sary to cut my eye out; I joined in the
laugh, for it was on my side. 1
have been free from pain since the first
day's vi-sit to Dr. Prentice, and im
proved steami, and am now entirely
! well again. 1 feel safe in saying that if
i Dr. Prentice cannot cure a case he will
always say so. Tiios. II. Foss,
Gray's River, Wash.
A Touching Scene Witnessed By a Portland
One week ago we received an invita
tion to witness a delicate surgical oper
ation on an ej e. I he patient was the
17- car-old daughter of Harrison Hay.
For three years she had been blind in
both ej es with a cataract, and was
obliged to grope her way about in total
dai lines?. The patient, without taking
I chloroform, submitted to the following
operation: the was now ready for the
surgical part of the work, and we stood
in breathless anxiety as Dr. Prentice
placed the point of his knife at the
side of the eyeball, carefully touched
the point of the cornea, then the blade
entered the eye; we saw it pass through
tiie eye in front of the pupil and then
come out at the opposite side. It was
then drawn upward, and a cut made of
about one-third of the circumference of
the ball. Another instrument was then
passed in back of the pupil, and almost
on the instant the girl said: "Oh, Dr.
Prentice 1 can sec you." This was
spoken in tones well calculated to bring
tears to one's eyes. From the time
the knife touched the eye until the
patient could sec, it was just one min
ute. She was allowed to see those
about her for a moment, then the eye
wa- closed alul bandaged.
In just one week after the operation
she came into our office and was able to
read our paper. She also wrote a letter
home, saying; "Dear parents, 1 can
see and am happy."'
Jlr. Jciomc V. Campbell. General
Superintendent of the Willamette
JJrnlge Railway Co., saw this operation.
From n TaJIent Who Was Cured Ily Dr.
Pokti.anii, Or., Oct. 7, 1890.
To the Svfferhuj: For five years 1
have .suffered with sleeplessness, ner
vou debility, inflation at the base of
the brain, and a terrible kidney disease.
L had tried so many remedies that did
me no good that at last I gave up all
hope of ever being a well man again. 1
tried many prescriptions that were
sud to be 'sure cures, and all failed.
i Theie weic many limes during the
pa;r lew jeans inai l was oDiigeu to lay
off from work from two weeks to three
months at a time. Lately 1 was run
ning down in health very rapidly, and
waialanned. I contemplated leaving
this paitof the country and trying to
se it L could not get relief elsewhere.
1 1 must hay that my faith in dortors was
I about gone; but something lead me to
i visit Dr. Prentice at the Esmond hotel,
i I crowded in with the others and
I waited my turn. 1 Ic eamined me, told
mo where my trouble was, and said lie
could cure it without medicine. I can't
ay that I ically buicved him, but
something in his maimer led me to
tuixthiui. JIc gave me no medicine at
all. jet from the day of my first visit I
began to improve rapidly. 1 now sleep
I as sound as a child. My memory is
' greatly improved. My kidney disease
i and brain iriitation are entirely well,
my appetite splendid, and 1 now enjoy
i life and perfect health. Any afflicted
person wishing to learn about my case
