H ì HOW TO TAME COCKROACHES. Catarrh Cured. D awson , G a ., D ec . 7 1886. For fully nine years I had ca tarrh. For five years I had it in the very worst form, how obnox ious that is I need not recount. I was under treatment of one of the most celebrated eye, ear and throat physicians in the United States, but he was unable to do me any good. In despair, I re started to numerous ¡latent medi cines that I saw advertised, but of no avail. Finally, about six months ago I began to take S. S. S. in sheer desperation, but with little hope and no faith in it. But to day I am compara tively well ; indeed, I have been so benefited by the S. S. S. that, although skeptical of its merits, I am compelled by the benefit I have derived from it, to testify to its unquestioned curative pow ers in catarrh cases. The best compliment I can pay it is that I have recently recommended it to a number of my warmest per sonal friends. M rs . E. C. K endrick . Blood Poison. W asco , T exas , O ct . 16, 1886.

If any supposes killing deer for their skins has been put a stop to in southern Oregon, the following, from the Jacksonville Times, will show him he is mis taken: “Within two months a hide dealer at Jacksonville, purchased 3,978 pounds of deer bides. It would require about 1,300 of these pelts to reach that weight. Other parties in south ern Oregon have purchased as many more, showing that in all about 2.600 deer have been kill ed for their skins only.” Tho state should offer a premium for the pelts of the scoundrels who thus wantonly slaughter deer for the trifling amount they receive on the skius.
