found about forty-live miles west of Sel
ma by J. H. Hall aud Robert Flkmgton.
The body is just what Hall said it was,
only tho mummification has been more
perfect than the imagination could picture
from a verbal description. The llesh has
dried as hard SS sole leather and is as
ilark as tlie Egyptian mummy of old.
The only sloughing about the body is
about the stomach, the skin on the hands,
urms and face never having been
broken. The eyes are dried up. but the
features are so natural that one knowing
the man in life could easily recogniz...
him now. The corpse had been lying
out in the weather at least a month or six
weeks, and it is so dried and preserved
that it would keep in its present condi
tion for years.
The man had on a pair of overalls, a
striped Manuel shirt, a black necktie and
heavy boots, lie wore a beard, white on
his chin, three inches long, and closely
cropped on his cheeks. He had an extra
pair of overalls, a gray flannel shirt,
black necktie and a cardigan jacket. A
white cotton hat, wide brimmed, was
tound near him, and a blank book and
a carpenter's rule were found in his
pocket. In the book the only writing
was "Pat Riley, care of E. B. Low, Call
enta." The book appeared to havo been
dipped in grease, showing that the sun's
rays had a powerful effect on tho man's
The jury decided the man to be about
56 years old, and tliat he died from the
effects of drinking alkali water, thirst

Bad Business for Women.
A concern trying to introduce a new
baking powder has adopted methods to
bring it before tbe public that arc liable
to get its members, as well as its em
ployes, into trouble. One of their
schemes is to send women from house to
house to defame other brands and falsely
chargo that they are adulterated. This
charge being untrue, the women s.re per
forming an illegal act for which they are
liable to arrest and punishment. Tho
character of baking powder that would
be sold by men who, for mercenary pur
poses, will employ women to do such
dishonorable and dangerous work as this,
can be imagined.
There is a more serious difficulty, how
ever, in view. These agents personally
and in advertisements assure the public
that all the ingredients of this new pow
der are printed upon the label of each
can, and sell it upon this guarantee. Some
purchasers have learned from the Gov
ernment reports that this powder has in
its composition other things, notably
lime and sulphuric acid. It is not a pure
powder, and being sold by means offal.se
statements and misrepresentation, its
agents aro already in trouble. A falso
label upon any package makes the salo of
it illicit by tbe retailer and wholesaler

I Marysville Appeal, October 20th.]
jj> G. Stubbs, Vice-President of the
southern Pacific Company, wired G. 11.
Baird, agent in this city, yesterday, that
he had succeeded in carrying through
the Transcontinental Association a meas
ure providing for a car rate of $1 on
canned goods and 81 40 on dried fruits.
This is to transcontinental points and is
subject to the acceptance of the lines em
braced within the Western Freight As
sociation, Southwestern Railway and
Steamship Association, the Central Traffic
and the Trunk Line Associations.
"The Southern Pacific Company," said
a railroad man to an Appeal reporter yes
terday, "is doing everything possible to
induce these as .ociations to make the re
ductions which thejfcsuit and canned
goods men are askingA>ut as it depends
upon the actions of art-timber of trallic
associations there is a material element of
uncertainty. It will, however, be no
fault of the Southern Pacific if those
shippers fail to get tho benefit of what
Mr. Stubbs has repeatedly urged upon

[Eveniug Bee, October 20th.]
It seems to be more than probable that
the newly-organized Merchants' Trallic
Association of San Francisco has been
formed, not so much for the purpose ot
encouraging a rival overland road, as to
induce or compel the Southern Pacific
Companj' to give San Francisco advan
tages in freight rates and facilities which
will enable her to hold the interior towns
in her grasp as sho did years ago. f_an
Francisco, with all her advantages, is the
least enterprising city in the State, and,
in consequence, has seen her great trade
gradually wrested from her by the enter
prising merchants of tho interior. She
has before tried to stem the tide through
bulldozing tactics, and it is not improb
able that tho present movement is in tho
Those who believe that
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy
will cure them are more
liable to get well than
those who don't.
If you happen to be one
of those who don't believe,
there's a matter of $500 to
help your faith. It's for you
if the makers of Dr. Sage's
Remedy can't cure you, no
matter how bad or of how
long standing your catarrh
in the head may be.
The makers are known to
every newspaper publisher
and every druggist in the
land, and you can easily
ascertain that their word's
as good as their bond.
Begin right. The first
stage is to purify the sys
tem. You don't want to
build on a wrong founda
tion, when you're building
for health. Don't shock the
stomach with harsh treat
ment. Use milder means.
You wind your watch
once a day. Your liver and
bowels should act as regu
larly. If they do not, use
a key. The key is — Dr.
