Crocent City, Calif., Oct. Sth, 18W.
E ditor R eporter : Thinking that a
few items from this part might be of in
terest to some of your readers, while I
am seated on the wharf three-fourths of
a mile from land, while the old Pacific is
roaring beneath me, and the whistling
bouyB like mad bulls are r«>aring on my
right and left hand, I will try to note
some of my observations since leaving
McMinnville Oct. 2d. Arriving at Grant’s
Pass Oct. 3d, too late for the Crescent
City stage, we spent the day taking in
the sights. This place is about three-
fourths the size of McMinnville, and is'
quite lively. The smoke is still rising
from the $150,000 fire, with only about
$25,000 insurance, which falls heavy on
the towu, completely breaking several ol
the business men up. There are seven
sawmills within a radius of 30 miles, cut
ting on an average 30,000 feet each daily
of sugar pine, which is quite plentiful
here, giving employment to a large num
ber of teams and men. It is hauled by
teams to Grant's Pass, where the facto
ries use it for boxes and various other
things. Fifty gold mines and six quartz
mills are within a radius of 25 miles.
Copper mines are also being worked at
present. There is great excitement here
at present about the Gold Ilill mines, 18
miles distant. A large Portland compa
ny has completed the survey, and expect
to commence immediately to build a
ditch or canal nine feet in the clear at
ttie bottom and 15 feet at the top, 90
miles long, tapping Rogue river, to work
the Gold Hill mines. Arriving at Cret-
centCity Oct. tith, I found quite a change
since the first time I landed here 3J years
ago this fall. After a pleasant greeting
of old friends and relations we note some
of the changes here. Hobbs, Wall A
Co. have jnst completed their new and
extensive latest improved band-saw
mills, capacity about 100,000 feet per day,
employing daily over 200 men in their
camps and mills. Wenger A Co. come
next, with 60,000 feet daily capacity, and
employing about 120 men. There are
various other smaller mills and mines,
60 dairies employ ing about 500 men, so
you see times are good, and we say, Hur

During the w inter of 1807 Mr. James
Reed, one of the lending citizens and
merchants of Clay, Clay county, W. Va ,
struck his leg against a cake of ice in
such a manner as to bruise it severely.
It became very much swolen and pained
him so badly that he could not walk
without the. aid of crutches. He was
treated by physicians, also used several
kinds of linament and two and a half
gallons of whiskey in bathing it, but
nothing gave any relief until he began
using Chamberlain’s Pain Balm. This
brought almost a complete cure in a
week’s time and he believes that had he
not used this remedy hie leg would have
had to he amputated. Pain Balm is un
equaled for sprains, bruises and rheu
matism. For sale by 8. Howorth & Co.,
