To health and Ldpplneas is Scrofula— as ugly m ever aime time immemorial. It causes bunches in the neck, d a ig ures the skin, inflames the mucous mem brane, wastes the muscles, weakens the bones, reduces the power of resistance to disease and the capacity for recovery, and develops into consumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla will rid you of it, radically and perman ently, as it has rid thousands. FRIEND TO THE FARMER. To the Editor—We have noticed in your paper from time to time, during the present season, some extremely in structive and interesting articles on Binding Twine. Permit us to add a few words today with special reference to our own influ ence in this market. The "Fafm Im plement News," issue of July 17, gives the following prices of twine as the prevailing Eastern prices to the deal ers: Sisal (500-ft).............................13 cents a pound Standard (oOO-ft).......................13 cents a pound Manila (550-ft)........................141^ cents a pound Manila (600-ft)........................15k cents a pound Manila (650-ft)...........................1" cents a pound While it is perfectly true and fair to say that we would be justified in charging one cent in advance of Eastern prices for our twine of Oregon manu facture, that is, the the price of freight added to Eastern prices, as a matter of fact, Pure Manila, Red Clover Leaf Brand, 650 feet, we are quoting to the dealers under date of July 15 at 16 cents per pound, or one cent below the prices quoted foi Eastern goods. Taking everything into account, it seems reasonable and appropriate that we call attention to the fact that, al though many people entertain the be lief that we are grinding monopolists, demanding all we can possibly get for twine, here we are in the midet of an important and strenuous season, offer ing our goods at one cent below the prices Eastern dealers are obliged to pay. In other words, instead of being an oppressor of the farmer, we demon strate in a very practical manner that we are his friend, and a good friend of the general public, because, if any Eastern twine is sold in this market, we force the Eastern manufacturer to take a less price for it than he does in hie local market besides the freight to the coast on account of uur low selling prices. We cannot be too enthusiastic about some of the remarks that have been made in your paper concerning Binding Twine. You have urged the consumer repeatedly to disregard the representa tions of unscrupulous dealers, and to always make his decision ^concerning purchases of twine by asking the ques tion, "How many bundles can you bind with a dollar's worth of twine?" If the consumer will always keep in mind this question when he makes a pur chase, he will inevitably and invariably select Pure Manila twine, for it is the most economical certainly, as it is 30 ' per cent longer than the other twine dollar for dollar and pound for pound PORTLAND CORDAGE CO Be in the habit of receiving every man with a pleasing countenance. ®®@® âxsxsxsx* SXsXSXS) sxsxs®®®®®®®®®« 2 THRESHERMEN, I ATTENTION ! i GREATBARGAINSALE Second-hand Threshing Machinery. up --------- Separators and Horsepowers, and are offering you A SNAPI Engines from $150 up.

The torpedo charged so that it will blow a great warship to destruc tion; the man provided with means by which to discharge his dangerous weapon in a way to do the most harm. Buch is the latest of all torpedo boats— one-man affair, not larger than a large fish, and yet as effective in its purposes, if the theory of its inventor Is correct, as one of the Holland sub marine boats. The man who has perfected this of fensive and invisible destroyer is Thomas J. Moriarity, for many years the mechanical expert in the employ of the United States Government at the torpedo station at Newport. Mr. Moriarity was long ago impress ed with the idea that the only way by which to make the action of the tor pedo actually certain was to put an ex perienced operator inside it; for, while its automatic machinery operates with almost human intelligence« there is no certainty that it will on long ranges do exactly what is required of it. Prom the idea of putting a man inside it to that of placing a man outside it, the transition was easy; and it then be came a problem to give him a safe shelter, means of locomotion, of sub merging and of discharging the projec tile. To accomplish these essentials he has devised a cigar-shaped boat of bronze plates, about ten feet long, three feet deep and five fet wide. Beneath this is suspended the Whitehead torpedo in a frame, and it is propelled by com pressed air when the operator has ap proached near the mark. on ing He by ly of a WONDERFUL IRON ELEPHANT. Designed for Great Kxposition by a Chicago Man. Mr. Joseph Husak, of Chicago, is pre pared to out-Ferrls Ferris at the St. Louis exposition, or at any other expo sition which, may come along and make room for his "iron elephant," 300 feet long and 250 feet In height, or for his "Jonah's whale," 50 feet long and big in girth in proportion. The "iron elephant" is the chief fea ture and creation of Mr. Husak's in ventive faculty, and he purposes to adapt the metal beast to more uses than the Indian beast is capable of in the flesh. The body of the animal is to be four stories in height, the floors to be reached by elevators running in the legs of the creature. The first floor is to be used and rented for small show rooms; the second floor for a cafe and restaurant, and furnish entrance to the nan MB. HUSAK'S IRON ELEPHANT. elephant's trunk, which is to be con structed to pull the ears up and down and at the same time swing. The third floor will be used for all sorts of amusements, and serve as an entrance to the "chute of chutes" and to the small Ferris wheels in each car of the elephant The fourth floor can be used for a theater or music halt placing the stage In the heed of the beast On top of tbe creature will be a roof garden or an observatory. The eyes will be two gigantic searchlights, and the tail might be used by some inventor to show a new Are escape. All signals may be trumpeted from this structure, and electric power will be used to run tbe different devices. Mr. Husak's whale will be in propor tions to simulate tbe real thing. Even the Interior of the animal will be con sturcted according to economy of na ture, only that entrance to the inside thrugh the mouth will be through an Uplifted jaw. Windows will be pro vided. and tbe whale, swimming In circular tank, will be operated by elec tricity, rising and sinking at the slight est wish of the operator. TABITHA SANBORN'S RIDE. She Keally Couldn't Bear to Waste Time from Her Work. Some of the feats which our fore mothers performed quite as a matter of course when domestic emergencies occurred were such as would tax the endurance and courage of tbe hardiest When in the boat the operator lies on a cradle astride of its support. Pad ded prongs on the cradle curve over his shoulders and hold Dim in place, provid ing also a purchase for his arms when operating the lever in front of him. He wears a waistcoat made of two thicknesses of air-tight material, to which is attached a small mouth tube by which it is inflated. It serves as a pudding for the body while the oper ator is in the boat and also as a life preserver in an emergency. Air is admitted through the rear mast and circulates throughout the boat. This air tube is, however, automatical ly closed when the boat is beneath the surface of the water, and the conning tower is completely covered by means of a hydrostatic piston, open to the water at the bottom of the boat, the pressure of the water at the increased depth forcing up the piston, which ac tuates a lever to force a valve over the air-tube opening, thus preventing the entry of water through it. The same motion of the piston oper ates levers connected to a valve in the compressed air tank in the bottom of the boat, opening it and thus allowing a fine stream of air to issue therefrom into the boat, and supplying the oper ator with fresh air. As the boat again reaches the surface the pressure on the hydrostatic piston 1 b released because there is less depth of water and the air tube hs again opened and the air tank valve closed. The torpedo is fired by compressed air, but on leaving its casing the pro pelling mechanism of the projectile is set in motion, and it starts off under its own power for the mark. athletic maidens of our own day. Han nah Sanborn Philbrook, in a recent article on old-time Sanbornton, relates how an ancestress of hers supplied a deficiency in her weaving apparatus. She found unexpectedly that her work required the use of a certain reed and harness which could be obtained only at a place five miles distant, reached by a road leading over a num ber of steep and dangerous hills. She was alone in the house with her baby and another young child, whom she could not leave to go on an er rand. Nevertheless, she could not en dure the idea of wasting time in wait ing for that reed and harness when if she only had them she could make such good progress with her web. Her hus band owned the "smartest 4-year-old colt in town," and this lively animal, nothing daunted, she mounted with her baby in her arms, taking the other child on a pillion behind her. "Soon after her arrival," writes her great-granddaughter, "there were signs of a coming tempest, and she had to hasten. The reed and harness, at least four feet long, were bound to the colt and she turned toward home. My Great-great-uncle Cate said that when she passed his house she was go ing like the wind, the sky was black with the coming storm, and the thun der and lightning were terrible. As soon as it cleared off he saddled his horse and followed, 'expecting,' he said, to find Tabitha and the children dead in the road. . But I went clean over all the way, and there she was, getting supper and singing, as lively as a cricket!' " She was not even wet; for the smart 4-year-old, urged to the utmost, had succeeded, in spite of his queer and cumbrous load, in racing the shower and beating it Supper over, Mrs. San born, with a tranquil mind and tbe proper implements, was able to resume her uninterrupted weaving. Bring the Ends Together. ▲ certain colonel somewhere In ths South (no matter where) was in the habit of telling yams and greatly ex aggerating. He had a negro servant who corroborated everything bis ter told. One day the colonel had soma gentlemen to dinner, and they were en joying some fine venison very much. The colonel said: 'Yes, I went hunting the other day and saw a flne buck. I took a good sight at him and shot him through the head, and the bullet went through his hind leg." The gentlemen looked at each other a little mystified. The negro scratched his head and at last said: "Yes, indeed, gemmen; just as massa raised the gun to shoot de buck he raise his hind leg and scratch his ear, and the bullet went through the head and right through de hind leg." The gentlemen looked more satisfied. After the guests had gone the negro said to his master: "Gorry mighty, massa, next time you tell one of dem yams do get the ends cloeter togedder. I had hard work to make both ends meet."
