Howell Jackson, a, Klamath
county rancher, is languishing in
jail in San Francisco, a just retri
bution for going beyond the juris
diction of bis own state in search
of a wife. This matrimonially in
clined man recently visited the big
wicked Bay City and advertised
that he would like to meet "a re
spectable-young lady object mat
rimony." Of course, the Oregon
rancher received numerous appli
cations fiVua the soiled doves pt the
gay city. He selected one of the
prettiest and flashiest of the lot.
but when his inamofata kissed him
a pleasant au revoir, promising; to
be back again soon, it occured to
Mr. Jackson to look after his purse,
when to his alarm he found that
necessary companion in a strange
city had disappeared. He gave

The readers of this paper will bi?
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh be-'
ing a constitutional disease, requires a
coustitutieual treatment. Hall's Cat
arrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the. blood and mucous
serfaces of the system, thereby des
troying the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient streugth by
building up the constitution and as.
sisting nature iB doing its work. The
proprietors nave so niucu iauu iu
curative powers, that they offer One
Hundred Dollars for any case that it
fails to cure. Hend for list of Testimon
