A HAPPY CHILD
j is one who grows, without in
terruption of health, from a
baby up except the inevitable
diseases of children.
And Scott's emulsion of cod
liver oil has done more, in the
:6 years of its existence, than
any half-dozen other things, to
make such children. .
It keeps them in uninterrupt
ed health. It is food that
tak-es hold at -once, whenever
their usual food lets go.

KOAD D(YX KOGl'E KIVER.
E. C. IVittbtul, writing to the
OiVKoniuu front Gold . Bosch, dis
cusses tiio feasibility of tmiltiing a
wt;on road down Uouo rivor to cott
uect Grunts Pass aud Gold lUaoli, mid
Kicm Gold r.caolt ui Koguo river to
Grants Pass is about 1-0 mill's, or to
tln mouth of tlio Illinois riv.-r, 30
miles. From Glcmlate on tho South
eru 1'aoilic, to the mouth of tho Illi
nois river is about CO miles. If a
Rood toll WiiKu road were built down
Ronue river from either tioiut, passeti
licrs and mails could get iu hort from
tho railroad in 24 hours, and savo two
days iu time. Josephine county has
already built several miles of county
wti;ou roads down Rogue, river and
a gap of about 00 uiilcs remains. This
could be built for about $10,000, and
I am informed 20-year franchise
could be secured from Curry county
for tho construction of a tollroad,
which would bo on a water level,
never impeded by snow, over which a
sta-e could cover the DO miles iu about
lj hours, and the time down the river
by steamer would Ue about three
hours, milking only IS hours ; and on
the return about llvo hours longer..
Giants Fuss is a town of ubout 3000
population, and Iter citizens would
seo the vast importance to the trade of
tlio town to have a good road down
F.ogue river, and Josephine county
would doubtless herself build a water
i gr.ulo road down the river, and let a
company use it for Jit years just fur
keeping it in repair. This road
would pass through a rich mineral
co.tntry, which, at the end of the 20
years would be so developed that the
toad could be made free. There are
gold and copper initios up Rogue river,
and at Apness, Hear the moHth of the
Illinois rivtr, b. !s of bituminous coal
have bei n found of nit excellent
quality, which could !o mined. It
seems to me a man of modi rale capi
tal might handle this enterprise, aud
it looks as though it would be a good
Mr. Winsor, nit old resident liere,
informs me that iu 1SI2 ho dime down
Rogue riv r iu a small boat from a
place in ar w here is now Grants Pass,
in 21 hours' natural limiting time,
lie experienced no dilllculty. He
was investigating the running of logs,
and thinks they could be floated suc

DYNAMITIC NOT IMGKKT'IM.K.
The following story is ut forth by
the Redding Free l'nss:
It will be remembered by renders of
the Free Pre.-s that a miner placed
some sticks of dynamite under a bush
to thy, and s; vi nil t f Ratb litVe's
cows came along aud swallowed the
explosive. Tin re was an immediate
scatttring tf pioplc whenever thtj
cows put m i.u npiK aiiiiicc, for thorn
was no telling just w h. n the boviues
that contained tin- dynamite would
blow up and s.-ii.l do; lb and destruc
tion to everything in lit. ir immediate
The cows blew up all right, but
fortunately no t lie was injured. . Mr.
Railcllite has found the carcasses of
four or live cow s, and lie is conlith lit
they are tho oil s that ato the dyna
mite. Friday, while ho was round
ing up his stock, ho ran across the
carcasses. Tin- scattered bones proved
to him beyond a doubt tinil the car
cass -s w ere those of the ilynnmitt -t lit

THE OLD RELIABLE
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE
J. S. Dillcr of tho Vuited Stales
Geological Survey, gives tho follow
ing with reference to Crater Lake :
Twenty years ago Crater Lako was
unknowu to tho general public. It is
deeply get iu tho snmtnit of tho Cas
cade range about tW miles north of the
California line, iu tho central western
edge of Klamath coutuy, Oregon, 17
miles a littlo west of north of Fort
Klamath, 10 miles duo west of tho up
per end of tho Klamath Indian reser
vation, about 13 miles a littlo oast of
north of Fort Scott, mid a liko dis
tance duo south of Mount Thiolsen.
The remnant of tho great mountain
enclosing tho lako was tiiimed Mount
Mazjinia iu ISDtt, and the Crater Lake
National Turk containing 210 square
miles wag established, by congress in
Tho geological record of this country
is replete wilh voleauio phenomena,
but tho climax appears to have been
reached iu tho early portiou of the
Neocene period, when one of the
largest known volcanic Ileitis of the
world was vigorously active. This
area stretched from tho Rocky inoim
atins to tho Pacific. Tito wrecking of
Mount Ma.ama aud tho development
of tho great pit or caldera, w hich for
beauty and grandeur rivals anything
of its kind in tho world, was the
crowning event in the volcanic history
of the Cascade range. The rim encir
cling Crater Lako appears, seen from
distance, us a broad cluster of gently
sloidng H'al:s. To out) arriving by the
road at the crest of the rim, the lake,
iu all its majestic beauty, appears
suddenly upon the seoiio anil is pro
foundly impressive. Thu eye beholds 20
miles of unbroken cliffs, the remnant
of Mount Ma.auia, ranging front over
."tilt) to nearly 2000 feet iu height, en
circling a deep blue sheet of placid
water, iu which tho mirrored walls
vie w ith tho original sloics in bril
liancy and greatly enhance the depth
of tho prospect. The lako is ubout
4.'B' miles wide and (l'4' miles long,
w ith mi area of nearly "20'u square
Mr. Di Her discusses at length the
threo types of lava in Mount Mazanui,
and describes Wizard Island in the
lake, w ith an men of nearly nino
tenths of a square mile, as a perfectly
preserved volcano, having a cylintl. r
cono about KIS feet high, a crater at
its summit about 2."i0 feet in diameter
and HO feet deep, and a lava field
around its base. The bottom of the
orator on Wizard Island, is solid lava.
There can be no reasonable doubt a
to tho former existence of Mount Ma
zamii, but its shape and si.u are more
tlilllcult to determine. Mount Mazama
is comimsed largely of lnvas similar
to those of Mount Shasta and from the
slopes of that famous peak we may
draw an infert nee as to those of Mount
Mazama. Mt. Shasta, unlike Mount
Mazama, docs not stand on nil elevated
platform. It rises with u majestic
sweep of 11,000 feef from gentle slos s
about its base, gradually growing
steeper upwards to the bold peak. At
the height of 8,000 feet it has about
the same diameter ns Mount Mazama
at an equal elevation in' the rim of
Cratur Ijiko. Above this, Mount
Shasta rises over II.IIOO feet.
Tho evidence ibies hooiii to show
that during the final netivily of Mt.
Mazama there must have been within
it a column of lava rising to a height
of OVtT S,(SK) feet above tho base of I In
Ciisoado liange. It is jsissible t! al
Ibis groat pressure, aid. tl perhaps by
some other forces, made an opening
formed low down upon the mountain
slops, which allowed the lava to it
tape. Tim subsidence of the lava
w i I Ii i il the mountain left it tin-uppori
ctl and caused It to collapse.
('rati r Lake changes level. During
lite summer, ulna there is rapid evap
oration ami little or mi preoipilnl ion,
the surface of the lake subsides; but
during the rainy winter il ri-es iigain.
The out illation is limited tn about
four feet. The lako appears to be fed
chiefly by the vast qiinnl it it s of snow
which drifts across tho crest and
lodges in gr at banks on tint inside.
The annual pr.-clj ilaliou of the r. giou
is estimated as between 0 and km in

OHIO'S NEW LAW.
Tho Real Local Cption Kill, to
which wo referred sotno weeks ago, is
now a law anil Ohio has taken a new
position iu the advance of temperance
legislation. It establishes the princi
pal of local option, which its enemies
sot out to defeat. It maintains every
materia? point w hich its friends un
dertook to carry. It will afford tho
effectual opportunity to hundreds of
municipalities iu Ohio to rid them
selves of tho saloon. It widens the
application of local option to .the
seats of the salortli interests iu the
towns of tho state. It will bring in
its wako ward local option. It is by
fur tho most significant temperance
victory that has been gained iu the
history of the struggle in Ohio.
THE SALOON MUST GO.
The Ohio press sjiouks well of the
new Ileal local option law.
Canadians prohibitionists have
started a newspaper organ, Tho Liber
ator. Anti-Saloon League leatlers will
pnsli for thu use of the Pnal local
option law in Ohio.
An effort is being made to drive
out t-liti "blind pigs" from the capitol
buildings nt Washington.
A number of candidates for mem
bership iu tho Ontario legislature
have pledged themselves, for prohibi
tion. Oxford will be the first town in
Ohio to hold a local option election
tinder the new Heal law. Petitions
calling for an elect ion have been
There are four prohibition slates
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont
and Kansas, and in Iowa there is
aniodillcd form of legislation on the
same line. Tho most drastic laws are
iu Kansas, where Ihe penalty for sell
ing iuto.icanis is a line of from $1,000
to $1,000 ami imprisonment, and where
wu notice oiie dealer lias recently been
fined f.i.OOO and then Kent to j'ail.
THE DEVIL'S RAILROAD.
Tickets fif this rond can b found
at any saloon or bow ling alloy. The
road stalls from tho twin cities Wil
fulness and Disobedience and is known
for ils rapid travclj being down grade
Willi brakes off. Tho president of
this road calls it. "Easy, do-as-you-plcimn"
road, but tho traveler soon
linds that the slave's fetters are not to
be compared to the fi llers of sill.
It. leads through tint "Pail Lands,"
the lirst station being" Cigarette

ing town. It takes Ihe best material
the nation affords, as pure boys, mid

ing. The propi lt tor says : "Givotne
your while life, ami I will mar it
Give mo your good naiuo and 1 w ill
tarnish it. Give mo your upright
character, and 1 will blacken it."
The road is very rough. Tho train
is often ditched, which sends many
inlo a tl.tik i tt iiiily. Next is Tobacco

ing this, for the smoke can be seen
for many miles. II is not fenced for
