Sec'y Harney Co. Fail.

My dear Sir:—The Lewie and

mission has appropriated the sum
of $2000, or so much thereof as may
be necessary, to make purchases
and pay expense of agents for
gathering exhibits at the district
fairs in the State of Oregon. We
will no doubt send a representative
to your fair. Will you kindly ad­
vise me when and where you hold
this fair. Assure your people that
should they have any choice ex­
hibits, that satisfactory arrange­
ments will no doubt be made to take
them to St. Louis.
Trusting this will be of value to
you, and that your fair will be a
greater success than ever before,

Mr. D. P. Daugherty, well known
throughout Mercer and Summer
counties, W. Va., most likely owes
his life to the kindness of a neigh­
bor. He was almost hopelessly af­
flicted with diarrhoea : was attend­
ed by two physicians who gave nim
little, if any, relief, when a ueigh-
bor learning of his serious condi­
tion, brought him a bottle of Cham­
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar­
rhoea Remedy, which cured him in
less than twenty-four hours, For
