Montbsano. Wash., Nov. 1st.
Editor l’lc vvrxK:—Your issue of .
Oct. reached us Oct. 30th.
First news from home. Thanks for
notice of our departure. The local
columns eagerly read by us all.
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
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.

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.
