the main sea to foam and drives boats

for squalls. AH the smaller boats have
furled sails, aud are creeping close up

ONE OF TWO WAU
The bladder was created for one purpose,
namely, -a receptacle for tlie urine, and as
Buch it is not liable to any form of dlsea6o
except by one of two ways The first way
is xroin imperfect action of the kidneys.
The second way is from careless local
treatment of other diseases.
Unhealthy mine from unhealthy kidncya
is the cWef cause of bladder troubles. So
the womb.Iike the bladder, was created for
one purpose, and if not doctored too much
is not liable to -weakness or disease, except
In rare cases. It is situated back or and
very close to the bladder; therefore any
pain, disease or inconvenience manifested
In the kidneys, back, bladder or urinary
passage Is often, by mistake, attributed to
female weakness cr -womb trouble of some
eort. The error is easily made and may be
as easily avoided. To find out correctly,
set your urine aside for twenty-four hours;
a sediment or settling indicates kidney or
bladder trouble. The mild and the extraor
dinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root,
the great kidney and bladder remedy, Is
toon realized. If you need a medicine
you should have the best. At druggists,
fifty cents and one dollar. You may have
a sample bottle and pamphlet, lioth sent
free by mail. Mention The Morning Times

and we tramp, but we .see no moose We
took to tnescow and the winds blew us on

and said: '.U for me, I go a-fishlng.'
He fished as we passed an empty Indian
town, and blew into a wide, wild moun
tain section, or arm, to the right, that
readied away out of sight, and here is
about the only troubls in regard to balling

fights for hair an hour; thn he fights in

In order to get the huok We fish with the
spoon and triple hook. No other unit or
otner sort of hook has been used, l'et
we have not only .surfeited oun-elven with
the trout, mountain trout, lake trout, sal mon
trout and salmon, but we have sharedlcads
of fish with others who have not time or
free hands to fish. And such solid, sweet
rishin thes! cold,blu2!now waters.
"I am advised not to give the weight of
these fish, but as there were quite a doz3ii
rw-n prdnt and watching the .scales when
thib rsh was weighed, and as others may
no doubt write or this marvel, I will set
down the single fact that the shapely and
most beautifully colored fish, speckled iu
blue and irold, weighed exactly eight pounds
as he came rrom the water. Sailing down
the river through what is called Meadow
or Mareh Lake, we have a fairly good
current. We lend on a sand bar. among
beautiful aspen and the baUam of Gilead.
TIitc are pines away up the pretty hills
in the rear, and a man getting wood up
there In the twilight comes tearing down
hill, hatless, crying- "Bear, bear, big black
bear." Away go the guns up that pretty
pine-set slope; tlie hatless man a little
behind so as to point out the big black
bear. "There it Ifc, see, standing up."
Bang, bang, but the man with the gun does
not run He only bangs away again and
again, and the hatless man picks tip Itisliat
and his wood, and we all promise not to
rellor saj bear to him as we sail on down
the great Yukon whenever we happen to
see a big black stump standing out In the
clearing on the bank. The captain tells
us that we are getting nearer and nearer
to the Yukon canyon, where so many good
men ha e perished, having been drawn iu
before knowing their peril.
"We will come to this canyon and the
dread "White Uorse Falls-a part of the
dangerous canyon In a rew hours We
hope to have our bold and skilirul captain

at the portage or paying any attention to
this terror of all boatmen."

Rodolphe Claughton.Fon of the late Judge
Hlcrome O. Claughton, lulled in the recent
ailroad disaster at Deanwood, yesterday
made application in the probate court for
letters of administration in the estate of
his rather, who died intestate.
The petition sets forth that the deceased
died possessed of money, household ef
fects and life insurance to the estimated
value of $7,500, and left as next or kin
Rodolphe Claughton, a son, and Blanche
Claughton-"West, Jessie Lillian Claughton
and Jennie H. Claughton, daughters.
The petitioner further states that the
son has made diligent search and inquiry
In such places and among such persons
as he would be likely to find a will, if
one existed, and finding none, it is his be
lief that his father died without making
testamentary disposition of his property.

Question of Validity Referred to
the Judge Advocate General.
Acting Sr-eretary Meiklejohn has referred
to the judge advocate general of the Army
the Monougahela Locks difficulties, re
Kulting from the failure of the lowest
bidder to complete his bond. The Judge
advocate general is asked for un opiuiou
as to the legality of the bid of the Houston
Construction Company, of Philadelphia,
which proposed discounts from their bids
for each of the six locks, provided they
secured more tnaa one, their bid for all
six, taking the discount Into consideration,
being lower than any other competitors.
If the Judge advocate general decided
that this bid is valid, tlie Houston Company
will be given the contract, aud if it is
declared not to be valid, the award may
be given to the next lowest bidder, as tlie
War Department is adverse to read er

THE DAY IN THE EXCHANGES
Stock Market Opens Weak, But
Soon Changes lor the Better.
The Present Business Situation
Largely Based Upon the Pros
perity of the Farmers.
New York, Aug. 31. A fairly active
business was doue on the Stock Exchange
today, btit except for the stocks classed
as specialties, Sugar Refining and a few
others, the market was irregular. The
shifting of active interest for the time
from the Granger stocks is doubtless due to
the very mutual desire to obtain definite
information in regard to the crops in the
remaining fortnight, duriug;vhlch they will
bo. biibjcct to daugerfrom meteorological
conditions. The advances made In the
country's chief agricultural profucts,
while to a laige extent offsetting the loss
from the decreased production so far as
the wealth of the nation is concerned, do
not compensate the Individual farmer and
communities whose ciops have been de
stroyed, and the present business situa
tion is laigely based upon the prosperity
o the farming class.
The first batch of dispatches reporting
frost iu varloiib Western Stutes was re
ceived today. The estimates of the most
reliable authorities place the total wheat
yield at 530,000,000 bushels, a reduction
of about :i0,000,000 bubht-ls from the most
sanguine expectations, while the prospects
Indicate a yield of corn of upwards of
1,800,000,000 bushels, With the atock of
the latter cereal remaining in the farmery'
hands the year's harvest, as Indicated,
guarantees a heavy tonnage for the rail
ways for many months to come.
The market opened unfavorably, in
fluenced by decided weakness iu the Lon
don market, which was naturally affected
by the political disturbances in India and
the other influences effective there.
Foreign houses bold upward of 20,000
shares of various stocks, and the room
traders followed this lead with consider
able vigor. The course; of tlie market was
boon turned, however, by the execution
or buying orders by the commission house
and a firmer tone developed. The market

The remarkable bull movement has com
menced to boom lorwartLagam, apparent
ly, yesterday's speculation wtas excited
and yet strong, with very little reaction
or any kind and Fome remarkable forward
movements. The general developments all
continue to be iavorauh, and It seems
probable that the strong leaders of the
market have all more or less simulta
neously decided on another spurt. There
Is very little to keep this spurt back. Rail
road earnings continue 'to grow, the feel
ing in business circles Is tanguine, and,
though expert authorities still pronounce
corn from two to three week late, they
minimize the importancc'of this by point
In, to the immense amount of old corn in
the country. All these things have a di
rect force on the New York stock market.
The one unfavorable factor is that Lon
don apparently cannot be convinced of
the substantial nature of our boom. It
sent lower prices for Americans yesterday
and sold some stock here. Our market took
the foreign offerings easily, however, as
in the past, and continued to disregard the
critical attitude of London. Public buying
of large volume was developed, and It was
of an eager character, too.
Although the whole market had this gen
eral tendency, the great spurt In Sugar
almost wholly overshadowed it. It fairly
eclipsed anything else by the vigor and
and sudden nature of its rise. The stock
has been rather neglected of late, but
was taken in hand yesterday by some
manipulative interest and scored one of
its old time rises, going to 157. Xearly
every shrewd observer of the market was
convinced that this would come, though
when, few were willing to predict. It
was thought at one time that the rise
to 155 or better would come last week,
and it was predicted, when it did not,
that this week would show the advance.
There were reports yesterday that a large
short was being hunted, and that the com
ing dethion as to. the retaliatory clauses
in the new tariff will virtually exclude
the foreign refined sugars. This is as was
expected. It is hard to predict a fur
ther rise at the present time, but It seems
to be foolhardy to predict the other thing.
Reading securities had good support yes
terday on a sale of a block of the new
i's t a foreign syndicate, aud on a fairly
good July earning statement. I have been
predicting an advance in Reading securi
ties, but it is not yet completed. This
Bale or the 4's practically cleaned up the
market. Mr. liorgan says the stock will
sell at 05. There promises to be a great
speculation in Heading common.
On any breaks, Louisville and Nash
ville should be a good purchase. There
is eycelleut buying ia it at the present
Dow, Jones & Co., say of Western Union:
The advance in Western Union sustained
the point to buy. "We understand that
several important interests are in the move
ment, and that au effort will be made
to carry the price to the neighborhood
or par within a few days. The main
factor is the earnings, which are known
to be very large. Gen. Eckcrt stated a
few days ago that the improvement Was
marked at all points. It Is also ob-ious
that Western Union, as a 5 per cent stock
which has paid 115 or more, dividends
ought to be worth par jf 4. per cent
railway stocks are Worth 96.
I am not bo confident as these people
Eeern to be of the immediate future of
the Western Union securities. It seems to
me that there are many probabilities that
the stock of) the company will not go
higher, unless, indeed, the whole market
should be phenomenally bullish for some
time to come.
Mr. IJousnipn bought Chicago Gas yes
terday in largo blocks. The transactions
covered many thousands of shares, and

as they have done before.
