A Traveling Man'i Experience.
I must tell you my experience on
an East bound O.K. AN. R. K. train
from Pendleton to La Grande, Ore.,"
writes Sam A. Garber, a well known
traveling man. "I was In the smoking
department with some other traveling
men when one of thorn went out Into
the coacb and came back and eald,
There Is a woman sick unto death in
the car.' I at once gnt up and went
out, found her very 111 with craiup
colic, her bands and arms were drawn
up so you could not straighten thetu,
and with a deathlike look ou her face
Two or three Indies were working with
her and elvlng her whiskey. I went
to my suit cane and got my bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera aud Di
arrhoea Remedy (I never travel with
out it), ran to the water ta'nk, put a
double dose of the medicine in the
glass, poured some water Into It and
stirred it with a pencil; then I had
quite a time to get the ladies to let, me
give it to her, but I succeeded. I could
at once see the effect and I worked
with her, rubbing her hands, and In
twenty minutes I gave her another
dose. By this time we were almost
into La Grande, where I was to leave
the train. I gave the bottle to the
husband to be used in case another
dose should be needed, but by the time
the train ran into La Grande she was
all right, and I received the thanks of
every passenger In the car." For sale
