Liveii Ubgulator, the "Kino op
Liver Medicines?" Everybody needa
take a liver remedy. It is a aluegish or
diseased liver tliat impairs digestion
and causes constipation, when the waste
that should be carried off remains in
the body and poinons the whole system.
That dull, heavy feeling is due to s
torpid liver. Biliousness, Headache,
Mnlaria and Indigestion are 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 butter than Pills. It
does not grijje, nor weaken, but greatly
refreshes and strengthens.

DON'T SHOOT THE BIRDS
SEASON NOT OPEN TILL,
September t, But Deer May Now bt
Slain. Mongolian Pheas-
ants Are Big
Sportsmen are fretting a good deal
over the fact that still another
thirty days must elapse before they
can get a whack at the upland game
birds. Report says that Mongolian
pheasants are big and fat, and so num
erous that one has to be careful in
driving along the country roads not to
run over them. Last year the Mason
opened on August 1, but that was
thought to be too early, and another
month was racked on at the earnest
solicitation of sportmeu. Now they
think (hey made a mistnke, and wish
they had not put off the killing sea
son further than August IS. But they
have to stand it; that is, the eity sport
men must. The country shooters can
better afford to take the chancas of en
joying a stolen hat of game.
The deer hunting season opened on
August I, but thus far there has not
been much of a rush of hunters from
the city. The slaughter of deer has
been so greal by the hide and pothun
ters during recent years that it is not
an easy undertaking to reacb a local
ity where deer may be hunted with
some chances of success. Then the
beat is a Utile to intense as yet to
make stalking pleasant work. After
the dog days are over a man may
expect to keep hi shirt and powder dry
while packing a heavy gun and other
equipments over hill and dale through
tangled woods. But within a lort
nlght It Is probable that the markets
will he full of venison. Nearly al
ways at this season of the year Eastern
hunting parties may be expected, and
they usually set a puce which local
sportsmen are oh iced to follow r lose
the best of the hunting season.
Game Protector McQuire will have
his hands full if he expects tn
protect upland birds during the next
mouth, fje lias been very busy all
summer with the salmon, but now
that Jude Bellinger has decided that
his labor Is no longer valuable, be will
put in his time bunting down the so
called "sportsman" who has no re-,
spect for the laws of the state. He lias
already iu his possession a bugh stack
of complaints from many valley points
and has appointed deputies in many
localities to look after the state's inter
ests. If there Is any merit In (be
present law.for the ptotection of game,
it will at least be given a fair test.
Nothing can be accomplished without
the support of true sportsmen, who
are wlllfng to use every effort to up
hold the law.
The real status of the game laws and
an endmeiits passed at the last session
of the legislature is not f ally under
stood here, as It has been impossible to
secure a ropy fro n (he state printing
office at Salem. Several local sports
men have s ut in applications for cop
ies, but up to date not a single appli
cation has been f)ed Oregonlan.

Wholesale Capture of Deer Hides,
Herman Metzgar has been arrested
in Portland for having in bis posses
sion a quantity of deer hides contrary
to taw. Game Protector McGulre
found in Metzgar's warehouse six big
bales of deer skins, about 800 skins in
all, neatly packed in wool and counter
felted, to represent sheep skins. The
hides were shipped there from Oak

whom a warrant has also been Issued
A few arrests of this kind, followed by
conviction and punishment, will pre

EIGHT YEARS AFTER

At Astoria, For an Old Crime. He
Brutally Murdered a Rancher on
ASTORIA, Or., Aug. a.-George
Upton was arrested by Chief of Pullee
Loughery this afternoou for the mur
of William De Journctte, which occur

skanie nearly eight years ago. Upton
had lus trutik checked aud was ready
to leave for P ortland on the evening
boat, when he was arrested by the
chief in Wilson's saloon. Since the
murder, Upton has evaded the offlceij
who, on several occasiqne, got
an inkling of his whereabouts, but
Upton always managed to give them
the slip. He was last seen in this ottv
two years ago. The officers were In
informed, but when they searched for
him, he could not be found. It is
thought that during the past two
years he has been in California. The
history of the crime he Is charged with
About six o'clock the evening of
Friday, August 12, 1887, George Upton

batter, on the Clalskame, and an
nounced that he Intended to kill the
entire household and then kill him
self. Then he began shooting. Two
snots were aimed Willi good effect at
De Journette, the last one striking
him near the temple and producing
death almost Instantly. This emptied
the revolver, and Upton, who had
brought a supply of ammunition, then
refilled his weapon with the Intention
of killing Mrs. De Journette, but
when he pulled the trigger, the ham
mer did not work, the spring evidently
having been broken with tlie la,t shot.
He beat the wornan. over the head

floor and kicked, her uutil she was
covered with bruises from head to
He thefl left the house and madehla

This decision will require the secre

court holds that t lie legislature having
failed to repeal the law, It Is still valid,

missioners. The old couimlssioiiei's
