Montksano, W. T. Following par
ticulars of the wreck of the British
ship Abercorn have been obtained
from the three survivors :
They were out 125 days from Glas
gow, with 2,000 tons of steel rails con
signed to the O. R. & N, Co. They
took Pilot Johnson on board, as pre
viously reported, and stood out to sea.
The wreck occurred at half-past six
Monday morning, by the vt-ssel run
ning on a sand beach. There was no
cale blowing whatever, but it was
Two honra previous to striking John
son sent a man into the cross-trees to
keep a lookout for lights at the mouth
of the Columbia river, suppos-ing they
were near that locality. At the time,
they were steering a southeast course
and carrying a light sail. The old
sailor was on watch. He says they
took souudinga only twice after taking
Johnson on board, first on Saturday
when they found eighty fathoms, and
again after stauding out to sea on
Sunday, when they sounded and found
120 fathoms. All the survivors agree
that these were- the only soundings
taken. The vessel struck seven miles
north of Gray's harbor, near Damon's
point. Immediately after striking all
hands went into the after cabin, as the
sea was breaking badly forward, and
while thev were there the foremast
and mainmast broke, and the deck
split. About I : JO p. m. a heavy sea
broke into the cabin. The old sailor,
who was first out of the cabin, could
not tell how many were drowned at
that time, but is eat is tied some must
have been. Those who survived as
cended the rigging of the mizzenmast,
and the old man saw Pilot Johnson as
he came out of the cabin, which was
filled with water. He then saw a wave
strike him, upon which he tried to
grasp the bar of the companion way,
but nursed it, when a second wave
struck Johnson and cairied him into
the ocean. The old man watched him
for some time in the water, ana says
he swam nobly, but as he was looking
back at the vessel and swimming par
allel with the coast, he did not appear
to be making for the shore, although
the sailor thinks if he had bad any
thing to assist him he could easily have
been saved. A little later the mizzen
mast gave way, and the ship opened
and let all into the sea. As the mast
was going, the old sailor jumped to
clear the side of the 6hip, and was
under water for some time. As he
came up the second time he saw near
him a plank about thirteen feet long.
which he seized and Bteered for the
shore. After getting on the plank, he
says his hair was hardly wet, showing
there was no storm.
The next survivor, a man about 25
years of age, came ashore with a piece
of plank under each arm. Both of the
men were in the water about half an

and was one of the five boys from the
training ship, all of whom wore mak

next April, but like the others his
name is unknown. He also came
ashore with two pieces of plank, and
was the last to reach shore, having
been about an hour in the water, and
having drifted two miles up the coast
from where the others landed. He
was unconscious when found by Mr.
Mclntire and an Indian. The boy
says he paw several persons m the wa
ter after he had left the wreck, aud
was the last to see the captain alive.
At one time the captain was within
fifteen feet of him, and told him to
hang on to his planks and n' t to be
scared, and he would reach shore all
right. Then a heavy wave struck the
lad and that was the last he saw of the
captain or any of the ship's crew,
Shortly after the boy reached shore
a body was seen floating but a short
distance from the shore, but it sank
immediately after being sighted, and
although the Iudians and Mcltilire
and A. O. Damon rushed into the
waves up to their necks, it was impos
sible to recover the body, Wuich was
supposed to be that of the captain.
Sixteen bodies- are reported found
including those of Pilot Johnson aud
the captain, the former having been
recognized by a , note book found in
his pocket. All the bodies were found

Senator Dolph reported favorably to
the Senate, from the Committee on
Commerce, his bill to prevent obstruc

prohibit the dumping of garbage and
refuse, and anything, mtoany of the
streams of the country which would
tend to obstruct navigation.
A bill was introduced by Stewart to
amend the mining laws of the united
States by providing that no person
shall acquire more than one mining
claim ob the same vein, or relocate a
claim which he has previously located.
Also requiring that each patent for
mining lands shall reserve right of
way through or over any mining claim
for roads, ditches, canals, cuts and
tunnels for the purpose of working
other mines; provided, that damages
occasioned thereby shall be assessed
and paid for according to law.

editor exclaimed the moment he heard
the name: "I would like you to write
a series of Spanish sketches for Lt

I am of Spanish descent, I know noth

highly praised for their "local color."

CAN'T EARN THEIR SALT.
Origin of a ttiraae la t'se Whorerer tha
Kng-t n lJtna;aaB;a Is Spoken.
This saying arose from a custom of
'Salting" mules, in South America,
the process being as follows: The
animals are collevted In groups of ten
or a dozen, each group being presided
.ver by a mare, who seems to have
trouble enough with her unruly fol
lowers. In order to keep up her
dignity and a proper respect for her
rhieftalnship. she allows no mule to
approach within the radius tommanded
by her teeth or heels, laying down her
ears and lashing out in all directiouj
whenever they show any inclination to
press too closely upon her. It is curi
ous to observe that the mules never at
tempt to bite or kick their foster
mother in return for her rough trcat-
iri. nt of them. Among themselves,
however, there is no such kindly feel
ing, but each seems to hate the other
with mortal spite, and frequent and
loud-sounding are the blows of jeal
ous heels on unwary ribs. When all
h ready the salt bags ar opened, and
the contents distributed upon tho
ground in several small heaps at suf
ficient distances a part. When the
battln Levins, all respect even toward
the foster-parent is forgotten in
the Intense eagerness of each
animal to reach the salt. TJte
law of the strongest and most
courageous Is paramount in the
wild medley that ensue. Now one
mule, with ears laid well back, and
with mouth wide open, will charge
Into the excited throng, and lash out
with tremendous force, fury, and rap
idity, clearing a complete ring for one
brief moment, during which it will
have the salt-heap all to Itself. An
other mule, rendered frantic by the
sight of the salt disappearing, will
charge into the circ'.e, and a savage duel
will commence, during wuich other aui
mals will slip in, and meeting each
other, all will again Dccome an liule-
scrible scene of fighting and tumult.
The blows given and taken are fright
ful to witness, yet, as far as one can
see, no animal exhibits any sign of
pain, but again and again each will
lvtum furiously to the charge. Th
keeper, who stands by and Watches the
contest, invariably rewards the most
sagacious and courageous animal with
an extra allowance of salt, which he is
permitted to eat in poace; while those
who have failed by timidity or other
wise to reach one of the bags are said
not to have "earned their salt," and are
consequently compelled to go without
The mule who "can't earn his salt" is
often made to feel the lash of his keej
er and has extra burdens or labor ini-
nostcd upon him. St. Louis G lode-
The Weignt or a Fly.
James Spencer hit on a novel way to
get at the approximate weight of a fly
His store is greatly pestered with flies.
and he recently brought into use tho
patent flv paper, lie put out 21 of
these sheets, being 12x23 inches each.
covering a surface of 336 square inches.
In th evening, when the papers wore
filled, he took them up to destroy them
and noticed the increased weight, and,
struck with curiosity, he put the papers,
with their load of dead flies, in a pair
of scales, and found that the 21 weighed
exactly seven pounds. He then weighod
21 sheets without the flies, and found
that they weighed four pounds and four
ounces. Thus on tho 21 papers thcro
were 4-t ounces, or two pounds and 12
ounces of flies. This number of flies is
taken probably two or three times a
day. "Now if you want to know how
much a fly weighs," says Mr. Spencer,
"you will find that there is an average
of 20 flies to the square inch on the
paper. On one paper, therefore, which
has 336 square inches, you have 6,720
flies, and on the whole 21 sheets there
are 111,120 flies; therefore, if 141,120
flies weigh 44 ounces, how much does
one fly weigh? It is a simple calcula
lation, and those who have a curiosity
to know can quickly find i out"

A New Home Treatment for the Cure of
Catarrh, Catarrhal Ieafneas and
The microscope ha proved that
these diseases are contagious, and that
they are due to the presence of living
parasites in the lining membrane of
the upper air passages and eustachian
tubes. The eminent scientists, Tyn
dall, Huxley and Bcale endorse this,
and these authorities cannot be dis
puted. The regular method of treat
ing these diseases has been to apply
an irritant remedy, weekly and even
daily, thus keeping the delicate mem
brane m a constant state of irritation,
allowing it no chance to heal, and as
a natural consequence of such treat
ment not one permanent cure has
ever been recorded. It is an absolute
fact that these diseases can not be
cured by any application made oftencr
than once in two weeks, for the mem
brane must get a chance to heal before
an application is repeated. It is now
seven years since Mr. Dixon discovered
the parasite in catarrh and formulated
his new treatment, and since then his
remedy has become a household word
iu every country where the English
l.mgUKge is spoken. Cures effected by
him seven years ago are cure still, there
having been no return of the disease.
So highly are these remedies valued
that ignorant imitators have started
up everywhere pretending to destroy
a parasite of which they know nothing,
by reaiedies, the result of the applica
tion of whicli they are equally igno
rant. Mr. Dixon s remedy is applied
only once in two weeks, and from one
to three applications effect a perma
nent cure in the most aggravated

The untimely death which annually car

is, in fact, the lm-ramcable hope, which
lurks in the heart of the victim, prevent

its earlier stages is beyond question, as
thera are hundreds of well-authenticated
