Professor Campbell, president of
the State University at uugene, m
liis lecture recently delivered in
Cottage Grove, his subject
being "Age of Transition" dwelt
at some length upon the future
utilization of the water power so
available in and about the Wil
This was a timely and practical
suggestion. These resources are
here, and there is but little doubt,
that within a few years, many of
the streams tributary to the Wil
lamette river, will be made to
operate, by the aid of electrical
appliances, the machinery for the
mines, as well as that ot many
other lines of industry, to be built
up in this region.
Our Eastern readers may feel
there is a lack of mining news from
the Bohemia mines in this and re
cent issues. At this season of the
year heavy snow storms prevail and
communication with the mines is
almost suspended. It is the inten
sion of the Nugget to publish only
such news as is considered reliable
and prefers to be short, rather than
to manufacture. When the winter
has passed and those now working
can be reached and others begin
operations, then the Nugget will
publish all the mining news, mean
while will give such information as
can be secured.
A visit to Portland and a ride
over the city will, even during these
winter months, convince one that
the city is in a flourishing condition
and that people of great as well as
small means can forsee for it a
prosperous future. Large business
blocks are in course of erection
and many residences are rising in
all parts of the city. With the
Willamette and Columbia river
valleys pouring their vast pro
ducts into its marts of trade to
gether with its shipping commerce
there is every reason to justify
these improvements and to cause
faith in its future.
The Republican Central Com
mittee of Lane county, Oregon, is
hereby called to meet at Eugene,
Oregon, Saturday, the 20th day of
February, 1904, at 1:30 o'clock p.
m. for the purpose of arranging for
the holding of the primaries and
county convention and issuing a
call therefor, and transacting such
other business ai may properly
come before the committee.
E. O. Potter,
C, A. Wintbrmeikr, Chairman.
The Eugene Register in its Tues
day's issue suggests the Hon. L.
T. Harris tor Representative to
Congress from this district, and
gives some very good reasons why
he should be selected for that hon
orable position. From what we
have learned of Mr. Harris since
coming to this county, the sugges
tion is a good one.
We are all glad lo learn that the
rumor that the O. & S. E. railroad
company would discontinue the
operation of its trains, proved to be
untrue. The trams are running on
schedule lime, and there is, accord
ing to acting Manager Woods, no
reason to expect any change.
The Nugget has been asked as to
what is being done towards having
the ores ot the liohemia District
represented at the St Louis Fair?
So far as we are informed no move
lias been made in that direction.
If there has, will be pleased to hear
Roosevelt Clubs are being organ
ized Jn many places throughout the
West, The president has a hold
on the West that's like the smile
"that won't come off."

They wasn't carlu' about deer nor

the next niornln' they lit out.
" 'Think we'll find 'em today?"
they says to me when they struck

cougar In these woods', I says.
" 'They hadn't gone far until they
separates. One of them started up
the hill and had not gone very far
until he sat down to blow. Pretty
soon he sees a big old cougar Jump
up on a log and begin walking back
and to. Well, sir, he begun to shake
and was afeard to shoot. Then a
little cougar Jumps up beside the old
one and the two go wnlkln' back an'
to, on the log, a swlngln' their tails.
Then he begins to holler to his
partner to come and help III 111 shoot
'em, and the cougars both run off

"One day we was out huntlu' and
I see a two-year-old bear off about
three hundred and slity-two ya'rds
and a half, bettln' up eatln" a niush

I showed hlin to pa and drew down
and let him have It. He Just went
end over end over end. I run over
to him and he was all rolled up In a
heap In the salal brush. I got up In
about 20 feet of him and he gets up
and, by ginger, he Just come at me
Ike a bltln' sow. I let htm have it
again and 'Wolf,' he says, nud Just
went a rollln' down through the
brush, makin' more noise than drag
gin' a dry bull hide through the
woods with a four-horse team. I
run to him and put my foot on his
neck and poked my gun right at the
butt ot bis ear. Ho kinder moaned
snd rolled hla eye up at me about as
big as a bean. I let him have It
again and that fixed him aplenty.
Well, sir, that was Just about the
fatt.it btar I ever saw. He neighed
about 250 pounds. We took him
home and rendered him up, and my,

ever hail In her was enough for us.
It was lu Octolier, and tlie ground
was covered with dead leaves and

she made an awful draught. Pres
ently this draught begun to got
stronger and the roar louder, and nil
tlio trash on the Hoor begun to go

leaves out urouncl the front door got
started nnd there wus a perfect

the fire and roar grew, and the
leaves and dry brush began to come
In through the door, big sticks as

Uy this time the trees nround the
house were all tieglnnlng to sway
and lean toward the liou.e. The
draught was so strong we were
afraid they would all fall over on It
and mash the cabin down, lint the

MILLIONAIRE'S POOR STOMACH.
The worn-out stomach of the over-fed
millionaire is often paraded in the pub
lic prints as a horrible example of the
evils attendant on the possession of
great wealth. But millionaires are not
the only ones who are aflliclcd with hail
stomachs. The proportion is fargreater
among the toilers. Dyspepr-in und in
digestion are rampant among these
people, and they suffer far worse tor
tures than the millionaire unless they
avail themselves of a standard medicine

The influence of climatic conditions

Syrup. Fife expectoration in the
morning Is made certain by German
Syrup, so is a good night s rest and the
absence of that weakening cough and
debilitating night sweats. Restless
nights and the exhaustion duo to

of thecousumptive, can be prevented or
