most remedies for children are composed of opium or morphine?
Io Yon Know that opium and morphine are stupefying narcotic poisons ?
Do You Know that in most countries druggistsare not permitted to sell narcotics
without labeling them poisons ?
lo Yon Know that you should not permit any medicine to be given your child
unless you or your physician know of what it Is composed?
Io Yon Know that Castoria is a purely vegetable preparation, and that a list of
its ingredients is published with every bottle ?
o Yon Know that Castoria Is the prescription of the famous Dr. Samuel Pitcher.
That it has been iu use for nearly thirty years, and that more Castoria is now sold than
of all other remedies for children combined ?
Ho Von Know that the Patent Office Department of the United States, and of
other countries, have issued exclusive right to Dr. Pitcher and his assigns to use the word
" Castoria ' and its formula, and that to imitate them is a state prison offense?
,, Ho Yon Know that one of the reasons for granting this government protection
was because Castoria had been proven to be absolutely Harmless ?
no You Know that 35 average doses of Castoria are furnished for 33
cents, or one cent a dose?

San Francisco Bulletin. The 10 ships for
August make a total of 49 for June 1.
Five of these took exclusive cargoes of
barley and three more took mixed car

This makes only 41 straight cargoes of
wheat. There must therefore be a consid
erable lot of the 1S04 wheat yet for ex

In the meantime a new crop has been

this harvest, so far as the threshers have

one time It looked as though we might

this state. But that view has materially
modified long Ibefore the grain had
ripened. The estimates have since been
cut down from time to time until now
It Is difficult to find anyone who believes
that the surpflus wheat for export will

as low as duo.ooo tons.

chanism, says the Tacoma News. The
heavy expense of removing the machinery
to a machine shop makes it necessary to
do the work on iboard, and what in the
Bhop would be an ordinary undertaking
Is on 'board an unusually hard one. The
first work to toe done Is to force the pin
from the crank, and when It Is considered
that the pin weighs about 1000 pounds,
and all the work must be done by hand
In a cramped space, It will1 be under
stood that this part of the work is not
at all easy. After the old pin 19 re
moved the holes through which it passes
must be re-bored, as the loose pin has
worn them in such a manner as to ruin
the perfect circle necessary In order to
fit the new pin. The work of boring is
also dona by hand, and Is a slow, trying
job, requiring the utmost attention. When
the holes have been made ready the new
pin is set in place. An estimate of the
amount of work required to take out an
old and insert a new crank pin can be
formed by the time necessary to do the
work, which will take not less than two
weeks in the case of the Kingston.

The steam tug Torfrlda was engaged to
tow the ship Garsdale, in balCast, from
Hull to Newcastle, and in the course of
the voyage the Garsdale was struck by a
heavy sea, which shifted her ballast and
gave her a list to starboard: Afterwards
the hawser parted and the Torfrlda was
was also struck, and her engine room
tilled with water. She then lost the ship
and returned to Hull to have her damage
repaired. After which she went to sea
again and found the Garsdale riding to
both anchors, near the Dudgeon lightship
The towage was resumed, but while going
up the Hu'mber the Garsdale required the
tug to turn round and go north,
which she eventually agreed to do at
the ship's risk and brought the latter
safely to the Tyne. The agreed value of
the ship and cargo was 14,800 and the
tug's value 3,500, and the plaintiffs
claimed salvage remuneration In addition
to the payment for towage. Justice
Bruce, In giving hlj Judgment, said it was
an express term ox tne contract tnat
the employment of the steam tug was not
to prejudice any claim that her owners
might have to salvage remuneration for
extraordinary services rendered to the
ship from circumstances not contem
plated at the time of the agreement, but
apart from any such express stipulation,
that right would bave been Implied by
law. The question to be decided was one
of fact; whether, owing to the violence
of the wind and waves the ship was
placed In danger, and the tug called upon
to perlform extraordinary duties. The
court ought not on light grounds to dis
regard the obligation Imposed by the con
tract of towage, but should prevent tne
masters of steam tugs from being ex
posed to the temptation of nee'.ectlng
their duty for the sake of a Higher re
muneration than they had bargained for.
On the other hand the principle was
clearly established that a right to sal-
ivag 'may arise, notwithstanding . tne
towaze contract, whenever bad weather
creates unexpected difficulties, and the
conditions of the undertaking are so al
tered as to require services which were
not previously contemplated. In thu?
case the conduct of those In charge of the
tug indicated a strong inclination to Im
prove the circumstances to their own
advantage, and could not be looked upon
with favor, but it was evident that the
state of the weather was exceptional,
and made it imooMib'e for the towage
to be conducted when the hawser parted
off Flaimborough Head. If the tug had
towed the ehtp to the Tyne the next day,
she wouOd have been entitled to salvage
for holding the ship during the hurricane
and afterwards standing by, and she was
not les entitled because, when the ship
coitd not be found, she went to Hull for
repairs. The E:dar Brethren, however,
advised that no high value could be
placed on the services and there was no
good reason why the tug should not at

t CROPS AND VOTES.
New York Tribune.
A political fact which most overlook Is
tnat the South has one crop and the West
has two. Eminent Democrats ara rnn-
gratulating themselves that reviving bus
iness will revive Democracy. This miv
be called feminine politics, showing &
sweei nacK or logic, a charming propen
sity io reason wun the affections and
a delightful indifference to facts. Since
Democratic defeat last year brings better
times, obviously better times must bring
uemocrauc success, since good crops at
the West take the Tire out of Populism,
the sihort cotton; crop at the South' must
have the same effect there. The cotton
crop is in value halt the entire product
of agriculture in the cotton-growing
states. The corn and wheat crop of the
Northwest are together more than half
Its agricultural products in value, the
two being worth obout double the cotton
crop. When cotton is short the South
surfers. When either wheat or corn turns
out badly, the Northwest usually has
in the other crop a Itasis for encourage
ment and bsulneps.
Populism at the West was to a great
extent the outgrowth of crazy land spec
ulation, but failure of crops was the
immediate cauTO of the outbreak in 1892.
The corn yield dropped a quarter, and
the wheat yield a sixth, according to
official figures, in the sarnie year. The
loss fell most heavily on great corn
growing states, and the pressure of
debts Incurred in speculative times made
discontent Intense. But cotton fell the
same year from over 9,000,000 to 6,700,000
bales, and the loss and ruin at the Bouth
were relatively greater. The Democratic
party promised to' do everything that
Populism proposed, and by that means
with control of ballot boxes held Its
ground. Last year disgust with Democ
racy and Its broken promises was wide
rpread. The story of overwhelming de
feat need not be repeated. But the Demo
cratic hope is that great crops will re
store confidence and power to the men
who were disgracefully punished for bad
faith and Incapacity in 1S94.
The corn crop is very large, but the
wheat crop small. Out of the two the
Northwelstern farmers will get more
than they did last year and have reason
for encouragement. According to all ac
counts, the discontent called Populism
is disappearing, and farmers in great
number have learned that the Repub
lican national policy was be3t for the
whole country, and therefore for them.

It was before Democratic success, and

nave Ior years commanded phenomenally
iow prices, and the farmers are not
anxious for any more Democratic years.

icy, and the hopeful revival of business

many planters who saw that there was
no market in the world for a crop ot
9,700,000 bales, and therefore reduced their
acreage. But with 11.6 per cent less acre
age and a yield per acre as good as that
of last year, the crop would still have
been over 8,500,000 bales, a little more than
the world Was ever consumed. Instead,
unfavorable weather has so far reduced
the yield that many operators are pre
dicting a further loss of 1,500,000 or 2,000,-
000 bales. Whether they are right or not
it is clear that the output per acre as well
as the acreage will be short. This means
for the South another year of trial and

THE OAR WHEEL dS WONDERFUL.
New York Press.
I asked an experienced mechanic the
other day what he regarded as the most
wonderful thing in the way of general
utility In this practical age. His reply
rather startled me. Said he:
"The tracking of a car wheel Is the
most wonderful1 thing to me in the whole
range of science and invention. Here are
two rails, up and down hill, around
curves and along faT.se tangents, and
upon them flies at more than a mile a
minute, without jar or Jostle, a dozen
heavy cars drawn by an engine weigh
ing CO tons. Passengers realize no danger,
yet there is only the little flange of the
wheel between them and eternity. An
inch and a half of steel turned up on
the inner side of the iwheel holds the
train as securely to the rails as IX it
were bolted there in grooves."
SIT UP STRAIGHT ON YOUR BICYCLE
There is absolutely on reason for
stooping over handle in either of the
two ways so commonly seen and there
is no excute for so doing In ordinary
road riding. It may be necessary for the

to assume the one or the other of these
attitudes to sprawl with the body
straight but almost horizontal, and the
head close to the handle bar; or to bend
the- upper part of the back, as if try

the shoulders forward as if desiring to

so, one who is not "scorching" does not

To Bring Suit-So Says President
Hill-Great Northern Will
Do Nothing: Illcrjal.
In view of the declclon in the United
States circuit com at Seattle on Monday
in tns Northern iPaclnc receivership case.
published In these columns, the following
special telegram from New York to tho
Pioneer Press will be of general interest:
Brayton Ives has invented a plan to re
organize the Northern pacific, although
Just what use it will be to anybody no
one can teH. (He may have concocted It
as a mental diversion, but at all events
It Is interesting. Mr. Ives has taken much
satisfaction in privately submitting his
plan to a number of people. It is the
sarnie plan, the early promulgation ot
which Mr. Pettlt, the general counsel of
the company, has recently announced in
in one of his published lntc-vlews in the
Northwest, in which he a'.Bo expressed
his confidence that it would be received
with general favor. The plan Is based on
a provision in the eleventh article of the
first mortgage deed of trust requiring
tnat an proceeds of land sales shall be
applied! to the redemption of the first
mortgage bonds at 110 and accrued inter
est. Now Mr. Ives proceeds on the the
ory that, inasmuch aa under this article
all tho first mortgage bonds, and, as the
same provision is also found In the sec
ond and third mortgages, all the bonds
under them can be paid oft out of the
proceeds of land sales, all that Is neces
sary for making the paying off of an
the bonds under the three mortgages
practicable Is to make the lands yield
sufficient money to do it, He estimates
the amount required at )75,000,000, and
feels confident that under his scheme
this yast sum can be readily provided for
by a simple method.
A corporation is to be formed for the
purpose of buying all the lands Jo which
the company Is entitled under its grant
for $76,000,000 in cash, under a contract,
however, binding the new corpoiatlon to
resell the bonds to the reorganized Nor
thern Pacific Company for a correspondi
ng amount of new 4 per cent bonds, uni
formly secured by one mortgage on all
the property of the company. By this
double operation the fixed charges under
the present three prior mortgages for
interest and sinking funds payments
would be reduced over 12,000,000 annually.
and the arrears of interest on the second
and third mortgage bonds wiped out,
and thus the company would be placed In
position to deal easily with its creditors
and thus caTry through the reorganiza
tion with but small, if any, assessments
of the two classes of stock.
The Pioneer Press correspondent called
upon several prominent financiers on
Wall street this afternoon to ascertain
their opinion of the proposed plan. They
are about evenly divided for and against
Mr. Ives scheme. The principal member
of one of the leading WaB street firms,
which has been in the syndicate that
originally placed the first and second
mortgage bonds, when shown a copy of
the plan, as stated In the foregoing, said:
"Do you wish to fool me with: such stuft
as that?" The questioner protested that
his statement was made In good faith,
mentioning tho name of his authority.
i ao not care who your authority is."
was the reply. "You can tell him for
me that he is an unmitigated Ignoramus,
and, if he has any doubt about it, let him
read Article II of the first mortgage
through, and also Article 122. The whole
proposition is absurd and ridiculous, In
view or tne tact that the company has
taken title to only about one-third ot
the land grant, comprising the best lands,
which are already sold, and that as to
the remainder, most of It not being ver
surveyed, nobody can tell how It will
It seems that there is a flaw In every
plan, but those favoring it say this is a
matter which can easily be adjusted. The
last part of Article II limited the opera
tion of the provision un which Mr. Ives
rests his plan to five years, expiring July
1, 1896, and article 12 restricts the pay
ments into the sinking fund and the com
pulsory annual redemption of bonds at
liO and accrued Interest to 1 per cent of
the first mortgage bonds originally sold.
President Hill was seen in St. Paul re
garding the exclusive announcement in
the Pioneer Press that the State of Min
nesota, through Its attorney general, will
oppose the big railroad deal, probably
by Intervening in the PearsaOl suit this
morning, and said:
"Our railroad end every other railroad

a legal exnstence. If it has not a legal
rlgfrt to do what it proposes to do it can
rot be done, I have stated often enough
that we propose to do nothing contrary
to the law. Of course, suits will be
brought and other obstacles will be plac
ed in the way. People have a right to do
that if they see fit, and we have a right
to defend ourselves. We have consulted
some pretty good counsel, and are con
vinced that what we propose to do is
right and consistent with the law."
