rare or a locomotive.
8om careful experiments which have
been made in England prove that the
life of a locomotive is about 500,000
"train miles." In other words, that a
locomotive of the latest approved pat
tern will ran 500,000 miles before wear
ing out so as to be useless. In making
this run of 500,000 miles the fire box
will have to be renewed three times,
the wheel tires five or six times and
the crank axlea from three to five times.

rightly directed. 'There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
. sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
. remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore

Chancel That Have Been Wrought
Within the Year Iu the Thriv
ing' Metropolis. -
Portland, Or,, Oot 21. Suoh
weather as Portland has been having
all during the Exposition, is simply
delightful. Never warm, at any time.
I have not at any time felt the
need of an overooat. The nights have
been clear, and the moon beautiful.
With such weather, it has been pleas
ant to wander about the oity of nights,
and look in the windows of the big
stores, many of which are lighted even
when olosed to business.
Sinoeyou were here Portland has
four elegantly paved streets. Morri
son street and Third and Washington
have fine, Bmooth, asphalt pavements,
and Fourth street from below the new
ojty hall, up to Union depot nearly, is
paved with wooden blocks which are
on a oonorete and sand foundations.
The wood pavement is an experiment.
The blooks are of a soft fir. The
chinks 'between the blooks are filled
with tar. It makes a smooth and
"givey" roadway. If it shall prove to
wear well it will be the pavement for
this section as long as our fir forests
Ben . Tillman, the Sonth Carolina
senator, spoke here last week for Bryan,
and Ben Bntterworth, ex-member of
congress from Ohio, followed the next
Dight for McKinley. The former is a
rugged, quick, vigorous, dashing cam
paigner; the latter is as smooth,
genial, cosy and persuasive in manner
as what Marian says I used to be. It
takes all manner of men to make a
world. From the gallant Sonth we
find in -Oregon a man as rough as a
miner in earlier days, whilst from the
middle West, Ohio, Oregonians are
listening to a Chesterfield in manners,
and one who evidently thinks a soft
answer tuineth away wrath. Both
had large and enthusiastio audiences.
Tillman had an open air meeting, and
fully 5,000 people heard him; Butter
worth spoke indoors to a packed house
with 1,500 seating oapaoity, but hun
dreds were turned away unable to get
standing room. .
The exposition olosed Saturday night
the 17th inst. without any particularly
special feature unless it be the small
ness of the orowd. The campaign and
bard times were , rather disastrous
financially. Whereas, last year the
guarantee fund was returned to sub
scribers, and a surplus of $4,000 left
over, this year there is a defioit of
about $2,500. Yet the entertainment
provided for visitors this year quite
equalled last. There Were eight big
speoial nights for the various secret
orders this year as against three last
year; yet the exoitement of the cam
paign, the oounter attractions of elo
quent speeches to be heard free, coupled
with the stringency of the times, com
bined to make the gate reoeipts too
small, "by several," to oover the ex
penses. However, Portland is a plucky
town, and no doubt next years' exposi
tion will be a suooess such as was last
This is truly a great campaign of
education. On many oorners right in
the heart of the oity there are gathered
crowds of men, from ten to even 100,
listening to disputes on the money
question. The listeners "put in"
every now and then, and the debate
growing general often beoomes warm,
but never boisterous. ' Nor are these
gatherings composed of only idle men
of the poorer people; by no means. As
a rule the crowds are made up of
rather well-dressed men, and not in
frequently men of position and means
take a turn at solving a stioker, or of
proposing a crasher. The corwds most
' always seem to be in good humor, and
the American's love of fair play is
never more conspicuous than when the
opponents in these street corner gather
ings get to thumping one another with
what eaoh considers knook-down argu
ments. Competition is the life of trade, we
are told. Portland now has two tele
phone companies, and one has to have
two phones' to reaoh the people who
would all patronize one oompany were
there only one. The rival company ;
brought down rates, but when one pays
both oompanies he finds that that kind j
of competition has oost him more than
be bargained for. It is such facts as
these that give rise to the agitation for
municipal ownership of telephones,
gas, street oars, etc.; but on the merits
of that I express no opinion, as the
editorial columns of ypur paper are ex
clusively for expressing opnions.'V A
correspondent should at least let the
editor do his own editing
Almost as many women here ride
the bioyole as men; and my belief is
that about each of one-twentieth of the
population has a bioyole. , The folks
with money, "keep np the style" in
bioycles. Their '96 wheel is turned
right over to the dealer for some small
sum, probably one-quater of . the ori
ginal retail oost, and that amount de
ducted from the '97 model. This
makes second-hand machines of last
year, almost as good as new, sell for
about half prioe. Yon see, it would
not do for one of these tony riders to be
seen next spring astride a '96 model;
that would exclude him or her from
his or her '97 model set. Well, after
all, it is those kind of folks that give
employment to labor, and oheap, good
bikes to poor people. EZEKIEL.

A WAR REMINISCENCE,
Scenes at Hatcher's Creek and Peters
John B. Scace B peaks to a Reporter
of Stirring; Seenea Escaped With a
Slight Wound, but, Like Other
Veteran, Baa 'Suffered Sinoe
A Story That Read! Like '
a Page From History,
from the Albany, N. Y., Journal.
When one enoonnters in print the
life story of some scarred veteran of
the civil war, a feeling of admiration
and sympathy is the certain result.
Accustomed though- we are to tales of
heroism and suffering in every day life,
there is something peculiarly attractive
about these old war reoords, serving, as
they do, as a sacred passport to the
heart of every true Amerioan. Thou
sands found their rest on the field of
carnage or in the hospital, but their
comrades, when the struggle was over
and the victory won, returned to their
homes and began anew the battle of
John B. Scace, the widely known
contractor and building-mover of Al
bany, N. Y., has an unusually interest
ing life, and when seen by a reporter
reoently at his home, No. 15 Bradford
street, told of bis many experiences and
adventures while serving under the
old flag in the late war. Although
having endured all the hardships and
privations of life in the ranks, Mr.
Soaoe bears his more than half a cen
tury of years with an elastio step and
a keen mind, taking an active interest
in private and publio affairs.
Mr. Soaoe is a member of Berkshire
uoage, no. oss, i. u. u. a: no en
listed in the army in 1862, in Company
A, Fortv-ninth Massachusetts Volun
teer Infantry, serving under Col. W.
F. Bartlett, First Brigade, First Divi
sion, Nineteenth Corps, with whioh he
participated in some of the hottest bat
tles of the war, inoluding Port Hudson,
Donaldsonville and Plain Store, where
he was wonnded. His time being out,
he was discharged, but soon re-enlisted
as sergeant in Company A, Sixty-first
Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteer In
fantry. He was in the battle of
Hatoher's Run, the fight about Peters
burg and the battle of Sailor's Creek.
After his honorable discharge, June
4, 1865, Mr. Soaoe returned to Albany
and settled down onoe again to his
business and social interests. He has
resided in the oity ever sinoe. It
would seem that now, of all times, his
peace and happiness would have been
uninterrupted. Such was not to be the
oase, for four years ago, while engaged
in superintending the raising of the
immense smokestack of the Albany
Eleotrio power house, the lever of a
loosened windlass struck him a heavy
blow across the back. The effect of
the blow was not at first apparent, he
being able to leave his bed in a few
days. But the worst was to follow,
for without warning he was seized
with soiatio rheumatism in all its
virulenoe. Untold agony followed.
Said Mr. Soaoe, . I could not sleep
for the pain. No one will know the
tortures the rheumatism gave me. I
don't known how I lived during those
days. I became little more than skin
and bones, and it seemed' like life
didn't have anything but suffering in
it. Cures? ; I tried every so-oalled
rheumatio cure that was ever invented.
I gave all of them a good trial before I
stopped taking them. My friends and
neighbors recommended remedy after
remedy that they heard of. but my
rheumatism went on just the same.
W ell, after I had almost had the life
tortured out of me I came across a
newspaper aooount of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I thought I might as
well add another name to the list as
not, so I ordered some of my druggist.
1 tell you, I was glad in those davg
to hear of anything that oonld give me
any hope at all. Yes, I got them, and
before I had taken two boxes that pain
began to leave me. Why, I oouldn't
understand it. , I oouldn't imagine my
self being oured. But before I had
taken a half-dozen of those boxes I was
oured. The suffering whioh had made
my life almost unbearable for so Ions
had disappeared. I was a new man.
"I began to get strong. I pioked
up in flesh, and I went back to my
business with all the vigor and vim of
a young man. I think everyone who
knows me will tell yon what it did for
me. Pink Pills is the grandest medi
cine ever discovered, and if my recom
mendation will do it any good I want
yon to use it. I hope others will hear
of it and be benefited as I have been.
Everyone should hear of it. I can't
say too much for them," Mr. Scaoe ex
claimed, enthusiastically, in conclu
sion. This ia but one of the many cases in
whioh Pink Pills have taken suoh a
benefioent part in the history of hu
manity. Mr. Soaoe is now enjoying the
fruits of an unusually large business,
managed soieiy Dy nimseir, and cover
ing almost the entire eastern portion
of the state. Mr. Soaoe is also an
