Crescent City Is largely controlled
by the sawmill company which owns

ity of 70,000 feet dally, and also one
otit threo miles from tho city cutting
40,000 feet. They own tho only

What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowlcdgp so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swnmp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of Jiquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, nud to get up ninny
times durinc the night. The mild and

Orient Believes Us Lazy.
It is startling to learn from th
greatest living authority upon tho
Japanese, Prof. Chamberlain, that
"from hints dropped by several of
tho educated, and from tho still
moro interesting, because frankly
naive, remarks mndo by Japanese
servants whom I-havo taken with me
to Europe at different times, 1 found
that tho traveled Japanese consider
our threo most prominent character
istics to bo dirt,' laziness, and super
stition." Thnt wo should seem relatively
lazy to the Jnpaneso.and Chinese is
Intelligible when wo consider their
dogged and Indomitable industry. I
romembor being greatly struck by
tho following Instance of Chineso
industry given In Sir George Staun
ton's account of Lord Mncartnoy's
oxperience as ambassador to China,
compiled from his lordship's papers.
Lord Macartney in passing through
ono part of tho Chinese empire no
ticed a man suspended by a rope
hanging half-way down a precipice.
Thinking that ho was collecting
bird's eggs, Hko tho men who are so
suspended from tho cliffs of Moher
In Clare, Lord Macartnoy stopped to
watch and to And that ho was culti
vating a llttlo plateau of- a fow yards
of land. IIo grew vegetables upon n
number, of theso Jutting out coigns
of vnntngo, but all of them
together did not amount to
extent to hnlf an acre. At
tho bottom of tho precipice ho
lived with a wlfo nnd'n largo family,
vhom ho supported by his industry
hanging dally half-wny down tho
dizzy cliff, like ono "thnt gathers
samphire, dreadful trndol"
Apropos of tho ombnssy of Lord
Macartney to China, I cannot resist
quoting Do Quincoy'B humorous ac
count of tho prosont sont with this
ambassador by Gcorgo III, to tho
ompcror of China. "Amongst tho
proBonts cnrrlcd out by our first
nmbnssndor, Lord Mncnrtney, to
China was n stato coach. It had
boon specially selected as n pcrsonnl
gift by Gcorgo III,, but tho exact
modo of using it was. nn intendo
mystory to Poking. Lord Mncartnoy,
indeed, had mado somo imperfect
explanations upon this point; but, as
Ills excellency communicated theso
In n diplomatic whisper at tho
momont of his departure, tho
(celestial intellect was feebly illum
inated, and it became necessary to
call a cabinet council on uie griiim
state question, "Where was tho
emperor to sit?' The hammer cloth
happened to be unusually gorgeous,
nnd, partly on that consideration,
and partly also because the box of
fered the most elevated seat, was
nearest to the moon, and undeniably
went foremost, It was resolved by
'acclamation that the box was the
'imperial throne, and for tho scound
jrel who drove, he might sit where ho
could find a perch."
"The horses, therefore, being har
nessed." Do Quincey proceeds,
"solemnly his imperial mnjesty as
cended his now English throne under
a flourish of trumpets, having the
first lord of the treasury on his right
hand and the chief Jestor on his left.
Peking gloried in tho spectacle; and
in tho whole flowery people, con
structively present by representation,
'thoro was but ono discontented per
'boh, nnd that was tho coachman.
This mutinous individual audacious
ly shouted, 'Whero am I to sit?' But
the privy council, incensed by his
disloyalty, unanimously opened tho
door and kicked him into the inside.
Ho had all the inside places to him-
I i. l..., n..n1. la ilm rnnnplfv flf

ambition that ho was still dissatis
fied. 'I Bay,' ho crlod out in an ex
temporo petition ntjdressed to tho
emperor throuch tho window 'I say,
how nm I to catch hold of tho reins?'
Anyhow,' was tho imperial answer,
don't trouble me, man, in my glory,
How catch tho reins? Why, through
tho windows, through the keyhole
anyhow.' Finally this contumacious
coachman lengthened tho chock
strings to a sort of Jury reins com
municating with the horBOs, and
with theso ho drovo ns steadily as
Poking had any right to expect. Tho
omperor returned after tho briefest
or circuits. IIo deconded in great
nomn from his throne, with tho
sovercst resolution never to remount
It, and he dedicated tho Btato conch
thoncoforwnrd as a votive offering to
tho god Fo-Fo whom tho learned
moro accurately call Fl-Fl."
