Yesterday a well known business man
received a letter from a friend in Roslyn,
Kootenai country, which
stated that there was great excitement In
that section over the new gold fltid. The
town has had a phenomenal growth In
the past few montht, and now possetse
thirteen hotels, with another In process
of construction. The gentleman thought
that with all the cry about gold, gold
bonds and gold reserve, that the new
mines being rapidly developed, would
probably afford a portion of the desired
supply of the yellow metaL
In conversation yesterday In thi off!
of a prominent real estate agent, Mr. C.
W. Shlvely said that ns far as he was
personally concerned the location of the
railroad depot was Immaterial, but that
he was very anxious that the movement
might be successful In securing the pave
ment of a through street from Hmlth's
l'olnt to Tongue I'olnt. lie thought that
the successful growth of the city de
manded that there should die such a
boulevard, giving access from all parts
of the city to all other part. He further
said that with the establishment of tuch
a street would naturally come the build
ing oi a through car line, affording cheap
transiwrtlon from one nd of the town
to another. Mr. Shlvely says that he has
offered in the past a donation for this
purpose, and stands ready to lay to make
It good. No doubt oth-rs will follow in
the wake of thU good example.
Kast Astoria Is doing its share of im
proving, and thst portion of the city
presents a very busy spptarance. The
constant demand 'or residence houses has
been the caus9 of a num'icr of buildings

There are decreet anil kinds of poverty.
Just as there are dlffeeenres nf opinion
among those who compute and measure
poverty by different standards. Home
men deem themselves poor lieeause they
are lest rich than others, attain, there
are comparatively poor people who are
satlsrcd with a competence. There la a
kind of poverty for which no amount ol
wealth can rompenrate, namely, a pov
erty of bodily stamina, evinced by ner
vousness and a derangement of the func
tions of digestion, bilious secretion and
the bowels. To restore vlitor upon a wr
manent basis there Is one remedy that
fully covert the requirements, "tills the
bill," and this Is Hosteller's Stomach
Hitters. Hy restoring digestion, gl.lng
