While on her north bound run from
Seattle last Friday, the steamer Lvdia
Thompson met with an accident which
laid her up until yesterday. From the
time she left Seattle until she had
crossed the Straits she encountered
very rough weather, but suffered no
inconvenience whatever on account of
this. Her mate landed her at Rich
ardson on Lopez island, but while
backing out from there to leave she
ran onto the rocks east of the dock and
completely demolished her propeller,
breaking off all but one of its blades.
She was worked around into Barlow's
bay and beached, in the hope that the
tide would fall enough to allow them
to put on another wheel which was al
ways carried aboard the boat, but in
this they were disappointed. A tug
was at once sent for and she was towed
to Seattle, Sunday, and put on the
dry dock and her new wheel put in
place. Lieutenant Perry, of the reve
nue launch Guard, very kindly gave
them all the assistance he could by
bringing her mail here and also taking
it and her mall clerk to Roche Harbor.
I have given Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy a fair test and consider it one
of the very best remedies for croup that
I have ever found. One dose has al
ways been sufficient, although I use it
freely. Any cold my children contract
yields very readily to this medicine. I
can conscientiously recommend it for
croup and colds in children.—Gbo E.

W. E. Sutherland, Orcas, Wash.
the existence of a road that was viewed
through my form more than twenty
yean ago and surveyed twenty yean
ago, and was used as a public highway
by myself and the public until all that
portion north and west from my farm
fell into disuse. I then had a right to
fence in and use that abandoned road,
more especially where the school house
bad stood and occupied a good piece of
land for more than fifteen years. H. A.
Armstrong bought 40 acres of land ad
joining mine, consequently, I am sorry
to say, is my nearest neighbor. All
these emanations from his fertile and
effusive brain are hearsay, and heresay
as long ago as 1 can remember was, ana
is today, called a common lier and mis
chief-maker, and they who rehearse
hearsay are like an infectious disease
wherever it has touched it has conferred
that infection. And it is particularly
applicable in this case. Mr. Armstrong
tells the public that after he has fixed
bis disappearing battery and will have,
it is to be presumed, wiped his detested
enemy out of existence and thereby put
a quietus on the road question. But he
has failed, ignomineoualy failed. While
{ hearsay was away foraging for ammuni
tion the enemy made a swoop from his
ancient stronghold and captured his
sentinel, and heresay returned just in
time to apprise his general and they
made for the woods, from which we
may hear of geurrilla raids. By some
unaccountable means none of the shots
, have taken effect, so the (courteously
addressed) Illustrious D. W. Oakes yet
remains to treat him with the open and
public contempt to which all such sub
jects of lunacy and knavery are en
titled. In Mr. Armstrong's informa
tion to the public, he savs that the road
has run through the school house of
which the district holds a good deed.
Oh, horror of horrors! imagine my feel
ings when I read that paragraph.
What would the public say? I mentally
concluded, this is what they would
say, that Oakes and Armstrong should
back that road out of the school house
forthwith. Now it is a fact, and al
though Armstrong asserts that D. W.
Oakes misrepresents things, the public
must believe him when he tells them
that the road has been run through the
school house. We must investigate
this matter. I am one of the public
and have an individual interest in both
road and house, and if any one has had
the audacity to run my platted road
through, or even into, the school house
and thereby destroyed the deed, run
him in. I feel sure I can prove an
alibi, and let Armstrong (if such are
facts) take the full penalty of the law
made and provided for suckers.
