Such quick transit of mail makes us feel that we are not so far away. It took some time to allay the emo tions produced in parting with so i many kind friends at Prescott. Our trip was made delightful by balmy weather and beautiful scenery. The Pacific Slope, arrayed in a dense growth of evergreen grass, trees and vines, is in strong contrast with the long stretch of treeless and grassless plains and mountains of Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and eastern Oregon. It seems to be a land of perpetual springtime. The Columbia valley is grand. We crossed at Kalama, in transfer hoat. Western Washington, from Kalama to Tacoma, seems to be an unbroken forest of fir and spruce. The towns are all new and the back lots are full of stumps and logs. Tacoma is a great city. The sound country is very rich. Log booms, containing hundreds of acres of logs, give us an idea of the extent of the lumber trade. Yet the forests seem untouched. 1 lie water is thick with fish. Agriculture is behind, because farmers have not yet come here to develop this industry. The soil is very rich and especially adapted to fruits and gardens. We have been only a week at Montesano. Have pleasant rooms that overlook the city. Lots here at from S100 to $ 1,000 per lot. Terms, in some cases, to suit the purchaser: by monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual payments. The grass and clover are rich and green. Cows are giving full milk, Hi to 20 quarts per day. (treat dairy country. Beef and mutton very fat. Beats Cali fornia for honey. I saw the mill handle a log 7 feet in diameter. It is easily done, all by steam power. The log is lirst made eight sided; then run down to six. etc. There are many of these big logs. They are Hosted down the streams to the mill boom. This is the place for lumbermen. Respectfully, John A. Ansi.ky. Vote of Nevada County.

That Littlo Tickling In your throat, which makes you cough once iu a while ami keeps you constantly clearing your throat, arises from catarrh, ami as catarrh is a constitutional disease the ordina ry cough remedies all fail to hit the spot. What you need is a constitu tional remedy like Hood's Sarsapa rilla. Many who have taken this medicine for scrofula, dyspepsia, loss of appetite, aud other troubles, have been sui prised that it should cure this troublesome cough. lint to know the actual cause of the cough is to solve the mystery. Many cases of consumption can be traced back to the neglect of some such slight affection as this. Consump tion can be controlled iu its early stages, and the effect of Hood’s Sar saparilla in purifying the blood, building up tin1 general health, and expelling the scrofulous taint which is the cause of catarrh and consump tion, has restored to perfect health tnanv persons on whom this dreaded disease seems to have a Urm hold.
