Reader, did you ever take Simmons
Liver Regulator, the "King op
Liver Medicines?" Everybody needs
take a liver remedy. It ia a sluggish or
diseased liver that impairs digestion
and causes constipation, when the waste
that should be carried off remains in
the body and poisons the whole system.
That dull, heavy feeling is due to a
. torpid liver. Biliousness, Headache,
Malaria and Indigestion axe all liver
diseases. Keep the liver active by an
occasional dose of Simmons Liver Reg
ulator and you'll get rid of these trou
bles, and give tone to the whole sys
tem. For a laxative Simmons Liver
Regulator is better than Pills. It
does not gripe, nor weaken, but greatly
refreshes and strengthens.

Steamer Dalles City Sank
Near Sprague.
Passengers Landed at the
Locks Without Accident.
The Dalles, Ore ,Nov. 28. The steam
er Dalles City, belonging to The Dal lee,
Portland & Astoria Navigation Company,
struck a rock near Sprague landing yes
terday and sank in water. The weather
was extremely blattering, with a down
stream wind blowing bard when the
Dalles City left the Cascades. At 6 p.
m. she was opposite Sprague, feeling her
way cautiously through the darkness.
The boat was heavily loaded, there being
50 cattle, as many hogs and a large con
signment of wood on board. Suddenly a
violent jar was felt, and immediately the
steamer's bow was turned toward
a sand bar lying in the middle of the
river, and in less then three minutes
she was beached. The hole in her hull
was a large one. and in a few minutes
she had settled till heretern rested nearly
seven feet nnder water. The news of
the accident reached the company 's office
this morning, and preparations were
immediately made to land the passengers
from the stranded steamer. Arrange
ments were made with Messrs, Day for
the Maria to go to the Dalles City's
rescue, and at 4 p. m. the passengers
were landed at Cascade locks. . T ey

diphtheria in the throat of a child make
the room close ; then take a tic cup,
and pour into it a quantity of tar and
turpentine, equal parts. Then stir the
contents with a red hot iron, bo as to fill
the room With lumes. - The little patient, .
on inhaling the fumes, will-cough up and'
spit out the membraneous matter and
the diphtheria will pass out. the lumes
of the tar and the turpentine loosen the
matter in the throat, and thus afford
the relief, that has . batlhd the skill, of

A Gun to Big to Pull.
An immense gun carriage, which with
the car weighed 147,000 pounds, was in
Pendleton the other day for a time as the
freight train from the East was making
np to go on west. The net weight of the
carriage was 95,100 pounds, the car
weighing 54,700. The car was especially
constructed of steel and had eight pair
of wheels, under it. The monstrous
weapon was going to Fort Stevens near
Astoria, and another car was used for
the transportation of the other parts.
Some Cartons Effects Noted In th Rugged
North and Sunny Booth.
Gutturals predominate in Norway
and Russia, whereas, far to the south
ward, in sunny Italy, there is a pro
fusion of such .euphonious names as
Palermo, Verona, Campobcllo, and bo
forth. ' Even in the British isles, cover
ing so few degrees of latitude, there is
a marked difference between the
f'burr" of the Highlander and the soft
speech of the native of southern Eng
land. . ' .
A theory which may partly account
for these climatic effects is based upon
the contrast of the stillness which usu
ally pervades southern lands with the
stormy inquietude . of northern coun
tries. Cloudless skies for - months at a
time characterize the climates of Italy
while a firmament entirely free from
clouds is rare in Norway. - '''.
It requires, of course, greater effort
to be heard in regions which are swept
by winds and storms than in still south
ern latitudes, and to he heard distinct
ly amid the noise and confusion of the
elements , words must be used which
contain many consonants. .
Among the inhabitants of more trop
ical climes the tendency is toward soft
and musical cadence, and travelers re
late that in regions in South America,
such as Peru and Venezuela, where at
mospheric disturbances are rare,, the
natives almost chant the phrases of
salutation. , ...... :
Voting Woman . Became Frantic at the
Night or Pretence of a Cat.
It's a subject that is frequently
talked about, but it is a fact that the
natural antipathies between certain
persons and certain animals furnish
fresh food for wonder and conjecture
constantly. Everyone knows well
enough the aversion that the majority
of people have for snakes tbe horrify
ing dread that their presence excites.
Many persons also "hate cats," as they
term . it. Their soft, stealthy move
ments excite a distrust that frequently
amounts to aversion. It is seldom,
however, that this is so pronounced as
in a case which excited considerable
comment in this city recently, says the
New York Tribune. - It was of a young
woman who had always had a most un
conquerable dread of the feline crea
tures, . and she actually could not en
dure the presence of one in the room
without losing control of herself com
pletely. She was so sensitive in this
particular that her family declares that
upon entering a room, if there was a
cat concealed anywhere within it, she
would at once detect its presence, and
it were removed at onnn would
become hysterical. In fact, it was a
standing joke on her that on one occa
Kion like this she became absolutely
terrified, and rushing up to a young
man, who was a total sfranger to her,
seized him about the neck, sobbing des
perately till the cat was taken away..
The girl was thoroughly ashamed of
her weakness, as she called it, but de
clared she was absolutely powerless in
the matter. Some instinct it was no
subtle odor told her if a cat were any
where near her, and the moment she
detected it she straightway lost all her
