- Editor tt.rvd Publisher. John Lamb, is of FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1901. THE SEAL AND THE BUFFALO. The seal and the sealskin sack are threatened with extinction. It would not be an unmixed evil. The fur of the seal is a luxury, and the extinction of the species would be no loss to the masses of the people. It may be as serted that the world would be benefited by the seal's extermination. It is a vora cious fish-eater, and preys on food fishes whose taking will some day de velop into a great industry. Even now the destruction of salmon by seals and sea-lions has become a serious menace to one of the most profitable industries of the state. Much of the alarm expressed over the seal's possible extinction is like the regret expressed over the extinc tion of the buffalo, mere sentiment. The buffalo is gone, but the ranges where once he fed give sustenance to domestic cattle. The food supply of scattered bands of savages has given place to resources which feed millions. The seal may also be wiped out of ex istence, but nature will provide an ample substitute. Fisheries will sup plant the rockeries, and employment and support be given to a greater num ber of people.—Spokesman-Review. One day recently a young lady in Walla Walla made the remark in the presence of a young man in that town that she had never been kissed. As she was of a kissable age and attrac tive withal, the unsuspecting youth committed osculation without much ado. Thereupon the belligerent maid en stabbed him in the leg with a hat pin, from the effects of which he died in the course of a few days. This was a case in which the young man might have claimed extenuating circum stances, if not actual provoc »tion This is not the first time, nor the sec ond, in which the innocent looking bat pm has been the chief aid in accom plishing a homicide. The incident should serve as a warning to exuber ant young men not to kiss anybody until they have been asked at least three times, and it also raises the ques tion as to whether a young woman thus armed does not come within the scope of the law which forbids the carrying of concealed weapons.—Wardner News. The Mother's Favorite. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is the mother's favorite. It is pleasant and safe for children to take and always cures. It is intended especially for coughs, colds, croup and whooping cough, and is the best medicine made for these diseases. There is not the least danger in giving it to children for it contains no opium or other in jurious drug and may be given as con fidently to a babe as to an adult. For sale by J. J.

It is a shell which "brightens as it takes its flight" by throwing out lateral blades. These impinge upon the periphery of the foeman, who summarily cut in two, is disagreeably surprised by the mischance and indisposed to further contentions. That is much, but not all. Having accomplished the purpose of their being, the blades shut up, a trapdoor fl'es open, a littie bird looks out and sings "Cookoo!" three times By that time the shell has gone so far that it is past belief,—Ambrose Bierce of Washington, D. C., in San Francisco Examiner. Old papers two-bits per hundred at the Nugget office. A Prominent Chicago Woman Speaks. Prof, Roxa Tyler, of Chicago, vice president Illinois Woman's Alliance, in speaking of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, says; "I suffered with a severe cold this winter which threat ened to run into pneumonia. I tried different remedies but I seeiuod to grow worse and the medicine upset my stomach. A friend advised me to try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and I found it was pleasant to take and it re lieved me at once. I am now entirely recovered, saved a doctor's bill, time and suffering, and I will never be with out this splendid medicine again." For sale by J. J. Plummer, De Lam a j Drug Store. T. W.

We now stand at the threshold of the twentieth century, and the nineteenth is a thiug of the past. It will, how ever, always be known as the century of invention and discovery, and among some of the greatest of these we can truthfully mention Hostetter's Stom ach Bitters, the celebrated remedy for all ailments arising from a disordered stomach, such as dyspepsia, indiges tion, flatulency, constipation, nervous ness and biliousness. It has been one of the greatest blessings to mankind during the past fifty years as a health builder. Many prominent physicians prescribe and recomment it. Take their advice, try a bottle and be con yinced, but be sure to get the genuine, with our private revenue stamp over the neck of the bottle. The ship-subsidy bill has been side tracked in the senate for the time be ing, giving Mr. Hanna to understand that there are other pebbles on the bsech that need fixing. Beat out of an I ncrease of His Pension. A Mexican war veteran and promi nent editor writes: "Seeing the adver tisement of Chamberlain's Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, I am reminded that as a soldier in Mexico in '47 and '48, I contracted Mexican diarrhoea and this remedy has kept me from getting an increase in my pension for on every renewal a dose of it re stores me.' It is unequalled as a quick cure for diarrhoea and is pleas ant and safe to take. For sale by J. J. Plummer, DeLamar Drug Store. The canal treaty is now being con sidered by the Britian government. It is doubtful if the amended treaty will ratified and Uncle Sam may be com pelled to give Johnny Bull a warm sup per in order to bring him to a complete understanding that interference on this side of the water is not to be tol erated for a moment.
