Sliver Metal Ware.
J. 1). Gnrfleld received by Btcamer
Coos Hay last Tuesday nn invoico of sil
ver metal wnro. for which ho has the
agency. This wnrc is something new
and only Bccond to solid silver, which it
approaches more nearly than any other
alloy, yet it is very much cheaper than
silver. Silver metal ware requires the
samo caro as solid silver, and when
thus treated it will wear down to a
shade or two of silver and will last a
lifetime. Garfield invites that portion of
tho public who ubo such-articles to call
at his hardware store and inspect this
now table ware.
Tho outlook for loggers in this locality
is anything but encouraging at tins
time. Tho only camp thnt Dean A Co.
expect to rue regularly this summer is
that one on tho Isthmus, in charge of
J. F. Dunham. Sinco C. II. Merchant
returned from San Francisco all the
men preparing to log for Dean & Co.,
excepting Dunhnm, havo been informed
that their services will not bo needed
until further notice. II. E. Scranton's
camnon Catching slough ia tho only
ono that will run for tho North Bond
mill this season. This suspension of
logging is tho roBiill of tho demoralized
lumlar market at San Francisco, where
a great deal of lumber is now being sold
at less than its actual cost. Tho old
combination to sustain prices baa been
dissolved and tho heaviest dealers de
cline to enter into another, for tho rea
son that they believe- too much treach
ery characterised tho old combination.
Tho largo supply of logB that Dean &
Co. havo at this place and that Simpson
Bros, havo at North Bend will bo used
un before any marked improvement will
take placo in tho logging business horo-abouts.

GEN. GRANT'S CONDITION.
Tho process of metamorphosis through
which tho Marshfleld drug Btoro has
been going Binco its purchase by F. A.
Golden Is drawing to a close. The store
to-day would scarcely bo recognized by
its friends of hIx months ngo. Tho gild
ing, painting and scroll work, of them
selves, were a decided improvement,
but bv far tho crcateBt chance of all is
tho now ceiling just completed. This
is an artistic piece of work in paper,
after tho stvlc of fresco in tlio most
elaborate city buildings. The central
field rcprescntB tho bluo Bky, flaked
with clouds and dotted with stars.
Around this are five strips of Billing and
filling, in very pretty gilt designs, with
corner pieces to match. Under all is a
heavy arched cornice, representing birds
and butterflies in flight, and this lias its
upper and lower faces covered witli
velvet paper mixed with gold. Around
tho gas-lights are appropriate center
pieces, finishing as handsome a ceiling
as lias over been put on any house in
Coos county. The plan was designed
by Golden himself nnd the work execut
ed by Charley Mack in a manner
does credit to tlio design. Golden,
though but recently In our midst, has
shown a decided spirit of improvement
and has set an example that should not
only be followed by our other mer
chants, but should insure him the liber
nl patronage of our community.

What the Medical Journals Have to Say
In Regard to His Case.
Nkw Yoiik, March 10. Grant passed
u good night, sleeping with but little in
terruption. Ho arose early this morn
ing and took n breakfast of coffee, lcef
and a little hominy, tho first solid food
'o has eaten in a day or two. He felt
better and more refreshed, nnd doctorB
rcrt his condition thin morning ns
After his visit to Gen. Grant to-night,
Dr. Douglas Raid : "Tho general lept
fievon hours continuously Inst night. He
wns very well through tho dny. Ho nak
ed for roast mutton nnd nte it. During
tho nfternoon nnd evening the general
revised enough of his book to keep the
printers busy three days. When I left
Gen. Grnnt to-night bo wns inclined to
sleep. Tho paliont's throat looks better
this evening. It has not tho angry ap
jmaranco it has had. There wns n catar
rhal difficulty in the morning that caus
ed gagging, but no bad results. Cocoaine
is not now lwlng used and there is no
pain. It is mental occupation that ren
ders tho general wakeful."
The following will aptearin the Medi
cal Uccord of March 21 : During the
past week the local disease of Gen.
Grant has shown no marked tendency
toward progressive ulceration. At the
recent weekly consultation Dr. Fordyce
Barker was unavoidably nbsccnt. DrB.
J. II. Douglns, Henry B. Sands and
George F. Shrady, who were present,
made a thorough examination of the
general's throat, with a view of dis
cussing the expediency of a radical sur
gical oK3 ration for removal of tho erowth.
Such measure would involve a division
I of the lower jaw, on the median line, ex
tirpation of the entire tongue and the
greater part of the soft palate, together
with removal of tho ulcerated and in
filtrated fauces and the indulnted glan
dular structures under tho right angle
of the lower jaw. This was considered
mechanically possible, detfpitc the close
proximity and probablo involvment Of
the tissues adjoining the large arteries
and veins in tlio neighborhood of tho
ulcerations, but in the best interests of
tho distinguished patient, tlio surgeons
did not seem inclined to recommend
procedure, even by such means. There
could be no guaranty, in view of the ex
tensive surrounding infiltration, that
the limits of the disease could be reach
ed without immediate risk to life by a
sm-nrn nlincV- tn n constitution already
tliatl ..,i. .,f.t,lwl Vrt -ell-il nnwnr lft
such a strong element in tho decision
that, for tho present at least, no kind of
operation will bo undertaken. Tho
ulccrition on the side of tho tongue has
not progressed far enough to produce
Ihe usual intolerable pain associated
with that condition, but should tho lat
ter symptoms appear it may be deemed
advisable to divide the gestitatory nerve.
Tho general toneof tho patient's system
remains about the same as at the last
report, notwithstanding he has suffered
much from insomnia. Tho latter within
the last day or two has been kept under
control by a suitable anodyne. There
is no pain in swallowing and sufficient
food is taken with reasonable relish.
PitiuMiELi-itiA, March 10. The Phila
delphia Medical News this week will
say, editorially, concerning the disease
from which Gen. Grant Is suffering:
"Lingual epithelioma, ns a rule, rapidly
progresses towards a fatal termination
when left to itself. The life of the pa
tient, from the first appearance of the
disease, varies in accordance with the
estimates of different observers from
10 to 13 months, tho average being
11 months. Tho duration of life ol
thoso who survive an operation averages
19 months. Not only docs operative
interference prolong life and relieve Buf
fering, but it effects a final cure in 14
tier cent, of all cases. In attaining these
results it must, howover, bo remember
ed that incision of the tongue is attend
ed with mortality in 23 per cent, of the
eases, and when, in addition to discaso
of tlio tongue, tho palate nnd tonsils nro
involved, prognosis is far more great,
whether tho disease bo permitted to pur
suo its courso or whether it bo subject
ed to tho knife. In tho lattor event not
Lonly will tho tonguo havo to bo extirpa
ted, but tho diseaso ol tno paiaie aim
tonsil will havo to bo reached. So far
as wo can loam there Is no example of
tho performance of a double operation
on record, and it Ts, in our opinion, not
Important to Pre-Emptdr.
As recently published, this ofTlco was
instructed bv tlm commissioner of tho
general land office lo reject nil pre-emp
tion proof mndo before notaries public.
The sccretnry of tho interior lias, sinco
revoked said instructions and ordered
that tho testimony of witnesses in pre
emption rases may bo taken before a
notnry pniinc nnu that the unaiamuavit
of claimant must be mado before tho
register or receiver or before tho county
rlerk of tho county in which tho pre
emption is situated. Applicants for
final proof should, in enso they desire
the testimony to bo taken before a nota
ry public, slate the namo of tho notnry
public and tlio time and place of taking
testimony. W. F. Benjamin, Register.
