Looking for Substitute.
The condition of the rubber trada
brought about by the increased demand
and the many new uses for rubber, has
exoited a great interest in the possibil
ity of inventing a substitute.
In England a substitute called
"oxilin" was claimed to be a substv
tute, and a clergyman of Denver, Colo.,
, invented a substitute called "perchoid"
lor which the same claim was made.
Ihese substitutes are identical in
their composition, being made from
linseed oil, the composition known as
linoleum being the suggestion of both
inventors, but the oil in the new oom
position is not fully oxidized, litharge
being used and currents of cold air,
Continued experiments yielded a more
and more elastic substance, and it was
found that with sulphur quite similar
effects were produced, comparatively,
as with rubber. Oxilin and perchoid
can also be vulcanized, but in no case
was it able to fulfill all the require'
merits of rubber. For bicycle tires it
has been found to serve quite well, but
it lacks the life and durability of rub
ber. Oxilin and perchoid can be pro
duoed at a cost of from 5 to 6 cents per
pound, and this fact, coupled with the
price of rubber at 80 cents per pound,
and that the claimed substitutes hufce
not been introduced with such, favora'
ble competing prices, shows conclusive'
ly that it is not likely to affect the
present condition of the rubber market.
Latter discoveries have worked veritable
miracles, but it does not seem at all
likely that a good substitute, for rubber

Expelled by Lydia B. Plnkham'a

think that I would not be here now If

a fibroid tumor in my womb.
" Doctors could donothinjrfor me, and
they could not cure me at the hospital.
I will tell you about it I
"I had been in my usual health, but
had worked 'quite hard. When my
monthly period came on, I flowed very
badly. The doctor gave mo medicine,
but it did me no good. He said the
flow must be stopped if possible, and
he must find the cause of my trouble.
" Upon examination, ho found there
was a fibroid tumor in my womb, and
gave me treatment without any benefit
whatever. About that time a lady
called on me, and recommended Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound j
said she owed her life to it. I said I
would try it, and did. Soon after the
flow became more natural and regular.
I still continued taking the Compound
for some time. Then the doctor made an
examination again, and found every
thing all right. . The tumor had passed
away, and that dull ache was gone."
It can be truthfully stated that
such a result can be accomplished by no
other remedy upon the market, and

TORTURED BY THUGS.
A Coos County Farmer Held Over a
Blazing Fire. !
.Myrtle Point, Or., Feb. 14. Two
masked thugs yesterday extorted f 180
from Levi Grant, an aged farmer, who
lives near here, by holding him over a
blazing fire till he disclosed its hiding
place. After they left, Grant managed
to crawl a quarter of a mile from his
cabin in search of assistance, but final
ly fainted fiom the excruciating pain
his burns caused him. He was brought
here by a neighbor, who found hira ly.
ing by the roadside, and his injuries
were dressed. It is hardly likely that
he will survive.
Grant is a widower, 75 years old, and
lives alone on a farm, his dwelling be
ing about a quarter of a mile from the
road, and hidden from it by a tall pop.
lar hedge. He was sitting by the fire
lust night, having removed his shoes
preparatory to jgoina to bed, when one
of the windows was smashed in with a
bludgeon and he was suddenly seized
from behind by a masked man, while a
second confronted him and demanded
his money. As soon as he found breath
to speak, he protested that he had none,
The thugs then lifted him bodily and
held him over the fire that was blazing
on the broad hearth, till he screamed
for mercy and promised to give them
all the money he had if they would re-
lease him. He was taken from the fire
and allowed to take out his purse, but
when his torturers found that it only
contained $40. they thrust him back
into the fire and held hira till, in his
agony, he told them where $140 more
was hidden. They quickly found this
and made their escape, leaving him
writhing on the cabin floor. A search
is being made for the robbers, but thus
far without result.
Organization of Columbia ltlver Packer
Portland, Or., Feb. 14. Formal pa
pers were signed here yesterday and an
organization perfected of what is to be
known as the Columbia River Canneries
Company. The incorporators are J. O,
Hanthorn, B. A. Seaborg and T. B,
McGovern. The- oapital stock is fixed
for the present at $500,000, but it is
understood that this may be increased
as the business of the company shall re
quire. It is stated by the incorporators
that the company starts oil with all
financial arrangements made to enable
them to put up as large a pack this sea
son as may be deemed advisable. They
further state that selling arrangements
have already been consummated with
the firm of Delafleld, McGovern & Co.,
of New York, which insures a market
for at least 100,000 cases of this
spring's catch of salmon.
Provision is also made in the by-laws

Columbia river, at such times and on
terms agreed to by the original incor

controlled and operated by the new
company this season' are among the
largest and bestNequipped on the river.
It is understood -, that a number of
the email packers have not joined the
organization, though a large majority
of the trade in Columbia river fish will
be under its control.
SALTER WORDEN'S CASE.
General Belief la That Sentence Will
San Francisco, Feb. 14. Governor
Budd has as yet taken no official cogni
zance of the confession and plea for
mercy made by Salter D. Worden. Be
fore it was made he had reprieved the
death sentence of the condemned man,
postponing the date of execution from
February 11 to June 15. As stated at
the time, this was done chiefly, for the
purpose of giving several medical ex
perts an opportunity of examining into
Worden's mental condition, the plea of
insanity having been set up by his
counsel. Ills voluntary contession is
regarded as a virtual abandonment of
this plea, and it is on his personal ap
peal for olemency that the governor is
now expected to act. ' The prevailing
impression is that Worden will not die
on the gallows, but will reoeive a com
mutation of sentence to life imprison

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Trade Conditions in the Leading Cities
of the World.
There was uniform strength in all
speculative markets during the past
week. Chicago May wheat sold from
84 to 98 8-8; May pork, $10.30 per
bbl to $10.75; Liverpool and foreign
markets up in proportion. The Ameri
can visible supply decreased 888,000
bushels during the week and now to
tals 85,634,000 bushels compared with
46.658,000 bushels last year. In 1897
the decrease for the corresponding
week' was 1,227,000 bushels. The
amount on passage increased 1,400,000
and the world's shipments were 5,801,
000 bushels, of whioh America con
tributed 8,420,000 bushels. The first
of the year wheat stocks at Buffalo,
Boston, New York, Philadelphia and
Baltimore were ,8,615,000. At the
close of last week there were 6,092,000
showing a decrease of 2,523,000 bush
els for the five weeks. During this
time exports of wheat alone from the
four points named were 6,018,000.
These figures show that the four points
received 8,495,000 more than can be
aocounted for, except on the theory
that the wheat was shipped direct
from Ohio. Pennsylvania, New York,
Maryland, Virginia, . and other terri
tory , immediately tributary to those
seaports. It will surprise the trade to
learn that Atlantio ports are receiving
weekly about 700,000 bushels from
points outside of the visible. All
along the line wheat seems to be com
ing from unexpected sources. The
movement in the Northwest is increas
ing and dumbfounded even the bears.
However, Mr. Leiter seems to hold
prices up and we would not be sur
prised to see a further advance. .

MAKES A FORTUNE IN EGGS.
Everybody laughed at This Man, But
. Success Came to Him.
Nearly every man who has come out
of Dawson during the past two months
or more has had something to say of
the "frozen egg man." They met him
at various points between the Chilkoot
summit and the Yukon river, trudging
along with one companion and four
dogs, pulling a cargo pf frozen eggs
bound for the Klondike. Eggs at Daw
son are worth a dollar or more each
and this high price proved such an in
centive to a Portland man that he re
solved to freeze a lot of them and take
them in. The egg man has been the
source of no little amusement for the
Elondikers who have come out. They
have frequently laughed at his fool
hardy speculation and often predicted
his failure.- He has been a prolific land
mark and one of the stock questions
which Klondikers have asked each other
here has been, "Where did you meet
the egg man?"
The egg man has sold his eggs and re
turned with a sack which manyaKlon'

Mr. Vest left Portland last October
on the steamer Elder. Before leaving
he obtained 1,743 dozen eggs. He
broke and packed them in tin cani,
holding one gallon each, or six dozen.
The cans were sealed, frozen and put
in ioe. They weighed 2,025 pounds
in oold storage. t
With one man to help and his dogs
Mr. Vest hurried the eggs up. to Sheep
oamp and buried . them in the snow.
He put four cans in a sack and tied the
sack over the dogs' backs. Each dog
carried 28 pounds in this way. Once
over the summit the cans were piled on
sleds, pulled by the dogs and the jpur
ney continued. I - "
Several adventures befell Mr. Vest
and his companion on the way.. On
December 21 they stopped at a cabin
and bought supper and lodging. They
bought some moccasins of one of their
hosts.' In the morning one can of the
eggs, now becoming more and more
precious, was gone. , Mr. Vest had his
suspicions but had no evidence. He
asked his host aboutj the missing, can
but got no satisfaction, although his
suspicions were confirmed. There were
others oamping at the cabin and from
these two . or ' three days later Vest
obtained corroborative evidence as to
the guilt of 'the suspect. The thief
had gone towards the coast but Vest
followed him and took him before the
police. Confronted with the evidence
Of his crime the fellow confessed. . The
police decreed that the man should be
punished by giving up his outfit to the
man he had wronged. This was done
and Mr. Vest got $185 per 'dozen for
the can of eggs.
At Thirty-Mile river an adventure of
a different sort overtooK . tne egg man.
A raft was built to float down the river.
Vest stayed on shore to line the raft
down and his companion was aboard
the raft.' The ice at one place was
not strong enough to support Mr.
Vest's weight and he was forced to
let the line go. The raft went spin
ning down the river at a fearful rate,
the anxious owner running along shore
to keep up with it. Suddenly a rook
rimmed with ice appeared in the track
of the raft. - In a moment the raft had
dived under the ice, the rider had
jumped for his life to the rock and the
cargo had spilled into the swift stream.
It was bitter cold, but the situation
was desperate. .. Vest did not ponder
long upon . what to do. He plunged
into the stream and pulled out the
sacks one at a time. To do this he had
to run along and into the stream for a
mile and a half. His clothes froze to
him, but he saved his eggs. Then he
went back to hi3 companion and threw
out a rope and towed him ashore.
Three men who happened to be camp
ing near by gave the two wet men shel
ter until they had dried and warmed
Sixty-five miles further down Vest
reached the Big Salmon where Major
Walsh was oamping. Major Walsh
wanted supplies and he bought Mr.
Vest's eggs at $3 per dozen. The eggs
yielded $5,211, whioh, added to the
$1,1.10, amounted to $6,821 as the total
product of Mr. Vest's undertaking.
