The consumption of opium in all its
forms Is a growing propensity, against
the Indulgence of which all regulallonB
of drugstores seem powerless. It would
almost be a blessing If opium, morphine
or laudanum, or any other form of the
drug, were $50 an ounce. From being
taken as a medicine It becomes a neces
sity of depraved appetite, and then it
wrecks lives beyond reformation, the
victims being unreliable for any steady
purpose of life. A California lawyer,
who recently died from- asphyxiation of
gas, was in the habit, It is said,
swallowing 120 drops of laudanum, at
time. What a saturation his body must
have had to endure that quantity.
Agents of the government are said to

the libelous Insolence of any one stig

In addition they Inflict vast harm upon

are regarded much too lightly.
A SITE- FOR A RESERVOIR.
Options on Three Locations Obtained
By the Water Commissioners.
The water commissioners are negotl
atlng for the purchase of a site for
new and sufficiently large reservoir to
meet the requirements of the city when
the population reaches double or treble
its present figures. The commissioners
have options on three sites at present
and it is probable one of them will be
purchased. The elevation desired Is one
between 250 and 300 feet, and with a
reservoir so situated the commissioners
think that better rates for fire Insurance
could be obtained from the various com
Dantes writing policies here. One of the
sites on which options have been ob
tained is on Cass street, in block
HuEtler & Aiken's; a second Is In Shlve
ly's, about 1,000 feet southeast of the
cemetery, and the other Is on Main
street, In block 4, Hustler &' Aiken's
All have been thoroughly surveyed and
soundings made, and the result has
been submitted to Engineer Adorns,
from whom the commissioners expect
recommendations at an early day. It Is
the Intention of the commissioners to
have the courts decide as quickly as
possible the right-of-way question, in
order that no time may be lost In pro
ceeding with the construction of the
pipe-lino. Some of those who have Mm
bcr claims along the route object to the
pipe-line, on the ground, us they allege,
that In case of a break the water would
wash out the logging roads, and that as
there are only a few months In the year
during which logging is practicable,
whole season's work might be lost. This
claim, It Is held by the members of the
commission, la not well founded, be-
cause in the event of a falling tree
breaking the pipe, the flood-gates with
which the pipe will at Intervals be fur
nished could be quickly closed.
In addition to this argument, it is also
shown that all the timber on both sides
of the pipe-line would be cut down dur
ing the construction work, leaving notlv
tng standing which could, In falling,
drop on thw pipe. For all this timber
the commissioners are willing to pay,
but some of the objectors ask $2 per
thousand stumpage. Considering that
stumpage Is worth only from 50 cents to
$1 at present, which the commissioners
are willing to pay, the stand taken by
the owners of timber Is not a reasonable
one. A rew nave demanded js, out tne
demands have been refused, and the
question of compensation will, us above
slated, be left to the courts.
Another point against the timber own
era la that wnere tney are auowea
stumpage. they can make whatever dis
position of the fallen timber they see
fit, su that any of it which would be
dropped adjooent to a logging road
could be again realized upon.
The commissioners are anxious to be.
gin work on the construction of the
pipe-line at once, and as the large sum
of $20,000 would be spent among people
residing in the city, they think it
sU-ange that any fair proposition should
not be entertained by those who own
land .along the route to Hear Creek.

SHINGLES AND LUMBER.
New Railroad Tariff to Go Into
Effect on the 10th Inst.
Proof sheets of the reviseM lumber
and shingle tariffs of the Northern Pa
clflc, Canadian Pacific and the Great
Northern roads- have been received by
General Agent Chandler, of the North
era Pacific, says the Seattle Telegraph
There are two of the tariffs. Instead of
taking effect March 1, as was at first
given out, they will not become effec
tive until March 10. Among the prin
clpal features of the tariff are the rais
ing of the rates on lumber and shingles
to St. Louis and its common points
from 60 to 02 1-2 cents per 100 pounds.
To all nclnts on the Burlington, Cedar
rtfinida and Northern. Chicago and
Great Western, Milwaukee, Chicago,
Rock Island and Pacific, Iowa Central
and the Minneapolis and St. Louis roads
in Iowa, Missouri and South Dakota the
rate on shingles will be 60 cents per 100
pounds In carload lots, and 50 cents on
fir lumber. To points beyond Peoria the
rates are-vmade up by adding the local
rate to the point beyond to the 60-cent
Peoria rate. The rates beyond St. Louis
are also made up In the same manner.
The principal tariff is very compact
and Includes under one cover rates to
all points on tho various lines with
which Joint tariffs have been arranged
This does away with the numerous
freight tariffs and general freight
agent's notices at present In effect.
WHAT THE DOG KNEW.
I happened one day to be in a Ten
nessee mountain town when an election
was taking place, and there was one
fellow who was doing more talking than
anybody else and getting Into repeated
rows. He was followed everywhere by
a shepherd dog, and late in the evening
found him on the edge of town In a
most dilapidated condition, the result of
a fight with the wrong man. The dog
was trying to lead him home.
"Well," I said, "what's the matter?"
"Fightln'," wna his brief response,
"You look It," said I, quite fearlessly,
for I felt safe under the circumstances.
"That't a good dog you have. Do you
want to sell him?"
"No, siree," he replied, brightening up
a little. "Here, Carlo," he said, and the
dog faced about and sat up. . '
Then he put him through a lot of
difficult tricks, apparently forgetting all
about his own battered condition.
"Why," I exclaimed, "blamed If he
doesn't know as much as you do,"
The man looked at me aggressively,
"More, MlBter," he said, "he knows
enough to keep his mouth shut." De.

ONE OF HIS TRICKS.
"I thought you snld you were going
to bring a friend home to dinner with

"He couldn't come, Ramnntha,' re

dinner he had had a chance to attack
for a long time. Chicago Tribune.
