The weak and the sick owe it to themselves not to experiment
with inexperienced purveyors of electricai appliances.
The Electric Current
' U THEN properly applied is the great natural specific treatment for nervous disorders. It is
YY true in theory, It is true In practice. When we recognize and acknowledge the liviag
fact that electricity Is nerve force and strength and energy and vigor, it Is easy to under
stand why it must build up the system which is debilitated and weakened. It ail depends on
HOW you apply the current. I have made a life-long study of this subject, and present in my

strengthener. It Is composed of 18 double cement cells, and weighs but five ounces. Worn

months. That is what brings vigor to the weakened parts.
with this appliance all forms of Rheumatism, Nervous Debility, Kidney Disorders, Lame Rack, etc., in either sex, and cnn cure after other treat
Hut, as everyeue knows, the Dr. Sanden Electric Belt Is really a specific remedy for those peculiar weaknesses of men which result from youthful
or excesses, i ire.u more
than any other specialist in America. My belt generates a pleasant, soothing current of galvanic electricity In precisely the right quantities. Worn at night you
irerivr Ihr (nil benefit during the entire time vou are asleep. My belt has been brought down to date, with imorovements as late as August 1$ last, while the
new scientific suspensory applies the current directly over the spermatic cord and prostate gland. Over 6,000 people will give willing testimony to the merits of
this appliance during 1K00. 1 here is but ONE Sanden Kelt, and that can be had at my office only. There is no new application of electricity other than the one
med hv me. I will give fi.ooo for any belt superior to mine.
Don't be deceived by the cl.ilms of unscrupulous people. Established in 1872 we are the oldest and largest producers of electro-therapeutic appliances In
the world. I here is no unpleasant burning or blistering produced by the Dr. Sanden Electric Belt. Electrodes covered with soft antiseptic material.

Beautiful Like Found in Cave in Malheur
'Ihr knaves of Crook county are not
the only t minus subterranean caverns of
r.istrm Oregon, li.irnry couutv contains
an interesting civealsn. l-'itty-live miles,
a lit tit- south of east from Hums, Is M.il-1
hetit cur, whkh has been isitrd by'
many people and has been interesting to 1
all. Its pn.11li.1r form, as perfect as if laid
out bv an ruuinrcr and chiseled through
thr rowk bv .1 sculptor, makes it the
wondrr nl all who ser it.
In visiting tills Live one comes to its'
mouth tight out in the "desert. ' One
might pass w ithin .1 few yards of It and
not see It. Entering a dark, ugly hole
and walking down a gradual incline (or
40 or so feet, onr rraihr .1 level lloor of

smooth and the perfectly loriued walls
irt.iln the s.iiue dimensions. Only at
one point Is there .1 small pile of shattered
rock lallen from the roof. 1
At the end of the 300 yards Is a clear
tihr of water. Here a small rowbo.it is
found anchored, and, taking passagr on
this, our may continue the journey in the
sainr dlrrctlou Into thr Interior. Ihr
watrr is slnllow at nr-t. until it brcomrs
practically Iiiimr.isiu.iblr thr entire width
ot thr car. And the water Is so clear
tint its surl.ur is almost indistingiiisli
ablr. Onr will walk Into it without
seeing it, and thr torchrs rrllrd thr brd
of thr car at a grrat depth, the smallest
object Mug on the bootom looking as
natural as It close at hand. The water
never rises or fills, or changes its charac
teralways the same temperature and
clear as a crystal. It has the temperature
of artesian water. At a distance of 300
yards on the lake the end of the cave is
reached, and the wall at the end comes
down like the arched walls, and is lost In
the depths of the water. Here the water
seems to be at its greatest depth.
I here are in.iiiy theories about the lake,
but alter all It proves to be one of the
natural wonders of this great' country
that await the exploration of science.
.Malheur river rises In the mountains
above and Hows along at the end of the
cave. The cave Is fioo yards long 300
yards ot dry bottom and 300 yards of
water. Measurements have been made
from the mouth of the cave in a straight
line over thr tavern, and It is found that
the rr.d of thr cavr comes near the bed of
the river. Hut here the bed of the river,
according to measurement, is much lower 1
than the estimated surface of the lake,
and, besides, the river gets very low in
summer and the How of water in the j
river is never greater below the point of
the cave lake than above. The lake may
be the outlet, or a part of some other 1
underground body of water, but it is clear I
that it lias no connection witli Malheur
liver. Sprwial correspondence from '

weeks. Ihcy report all kinds of game
in that country, and declare tint they had
good luck killing birds and beasts, but

Dayld Wilson went to Ontario Mon
day, expecting to return here tomorrow.
He has met with some unexpected diffi
culties' lit his) efforts to raise the neces
sary money with which to build the big
brick hotel, several men who signified
their intentions to subscribe for stock
having later declined to do so. Of the
amount necessary to be raised $2,200
have not yet been subscribed. Mr. Wil
son hopes that the deal can be closed up
by Saturday. If not, the enterprise will
be abandoned for the present, as it Is
feared that If building operations are de
layed much longer, bad weather will stop
the work of the brick masons. If the
papers are all signed Saturday, work will
be commenced Monday morning.
