members who sitter at times from the
effects of a weak stomach.
It may be that this occurs only after
eating food that does not agree, or
because of a supper late at night; or
it may be that the stomach is so weak
that scaroely any food can be eaten
without nain and distress.
The only way to treat conditions of
this kind successfully is with Mio-na.
It removes the caose of ludigestion.

and bowels, and restores the whole

the first symptoms of indigestion,

Gilmsn, the iuveutor of the machine,
will be glad tojexplsin the principle
of machanlstn and ;the manner or

every promise of ravolntloolzing river
bed mining and the officers and stock
holders of the company are highly en
thusiastic in their anticipation of re
sults. It is expected that one or the
plants will be in operation on the
Rogue river just below Grants Pass

The above is an exoerpt from an
item which appeared in last week's
issue of the Ashland Tidings. It
would be important if true. But as a
matter of fact there are few men io
Grants Pass who exercise their
molars upon the filthy weed, and the
girls chew gum. When the sporting
editor of the Courier called t'e atten
tion of a fuw of the old pastaiasters to
the item, there was consternation in
the oamp, and the sidewalks along the
fenoe bounding railroad park ou the
west was oited as a field where the old
timers on the fence had painted the
center of the walk such a dark ma-
bogony that the city marshal moved
the mark over into the street. No
Sir e 1 the Grants Pass fellows who
obew the southern leaf deny the sett
impeachment, and have authorised the
Courier to advise the doughty Ash-
lauditea that they know more about
the specific gravity of Bootjack, Star,
Horseshoe, Battle Axe and other
brands, than tbe Ashland chewers ever
dreamed about, and they were never
