A NEW COLONY:
Andreas Simon, the Chicago Editor, Ar
rives at Fairhaven ln Company With
Raymond Stabb and Nieolaus Leiker.
Andreas Simon, the distinguished
agricultural editor of the Illinois Staats
Zeitung, of Chicago, arrived at Fair
haven, Monday, in company with
Raymond Staab and Nicolaus Leiker,
of Ellis county, Kansas. The latter
two gentlemen are representing a large
colony of German Catholic farmers, in
Kansas, who are desirous of bettering
their condition by removing to some
part of the Pacific coast. These thrifty
farmers being readers of Mr. Simon's
paper, have naturally learned a good
deal about Fairhaven and the San Juan
islands. Mr. Simon has been here
twice before, and has written exhaust
ively on the resources of this county,
its agriculture, holticulture. fisheries,
island and mountain scenery, etc., giv
ing his readers (nearly 70,000 in num
ber) a comprehensive idea of the beau
ties and charms of this island county.
As a result of this influential journal,
the Kansas colony delegated Messrs.
Staab and Leiker to visit this region
and ascertain the facts. These gentle
men then chose Editor Simon to pilot
them out here and show them what he
had already seen, and now they are
here looking over the country for that
purpose.
Mr. Simon is enthusiastic in his
praises of Bellingham bay and What
com and San Juan counties, and as his
companions are becoming imbued with
the same spirit, they will undoubtedly
recommend the emigration of their
people to this county, where abundance
of farming lands are to be had.
Being considerably interested in the
raising of tulip bulbs, Mr. Simon has
paid a great deal of attention to the
product of this section of the country.
In this connection the St. Paul Pioneer
Press, of February 11, says:
Andreas Simon, agricultural editor
of the Illinois Staats Zeitung, of Chica
go, passed through St. Paul yesterday
with his party of Washington enthusi
asts bound for Fairhaven. Mr. Simon
is investigating the possibilities of the
state of Washington for raising bulbs.
This is a business that has been ex
clusively in the hands of the thrifty
Hollanders for several centuries. It
has been found that save a small lo
cality in North Carolina, this country
possesses no adaptability to this branch
of agriculture. Recent facts, however,
have encouraged Mr. Simon to the be
lief tbat Washington is especially
adapted for this work. Speaking of
the matter yesterday he said:
Geoige Gibbs, of Orcas island, San
Juan county, Wash., who has been
raising Holland bulbs of all kinds,
tulips, hyacinths, crocuses, etc., during
the last five years, scut a box of sample
tulip bulbs to me last fall. I divided
them up between the different public
parks of our city so as to have them
go through the process of forcing in
the hot-house. At present three tulips
are fully developed, and the finely
shaped, beautifully-colored blooms are
certainly equal to the best imported
Holland tulips. A remarkable feature
of these trial bulbs is, tbat some of the
stalks have formed as many as four
blossoms, all in perfect shape and
grown from the same center of the
bulb. There is no question that the
culture of Holland bulbs in Western
Washington will become one of the
most profitable branches of horticul
ture All the bulbs used in the United
States are imported from Europe. An
attempt is being made to grow them
in North Carolina, but not with much
success. I have not seen in all obser
vations, covering a good many years
on both continents, bulbs having such
remarkable germinating strength as
these produced in Washington. It
should become a profitable business,
and there is a chance for the invest
ment of capital and labor out on the
islands of Puget Sound.

afforded complete relief. In a short

W. O. Barker Returned.
West Sound, March 19, 1898.
Editor Islander:—Dear Sir:— Hay-
ing just returned from my trip east I
thought perhaps some of your readers
might desire to learn of my success.
The samples of fruit which I took with
me were not of the best by any means
but were far better than the specimens
shown by the gentleman from Califor
nia. I met him on the train while in
Montana and we rode together some
100 miles or more. Our apples were far
better than his in every respect. One
reason why our fruit is better than that
grown in California is that it has not
the hot sun to parch and dry it up be
fore it properly matures. Ours grows
to its full size, gets its natural rich
flavor and will keep much better than
the California grown apples. Our fruit
will always be given the preference in
the eastern markets. Our prunes were
larger and better than any others I saw
on the market in the east. My dried
apples were the nicest ever seen in the
east. We will have no trouble in sell
ing all the fruit we can raise, aud at
Schilling's Bett lemon is
go to 3P times as strong as
common flavoring extracts.

good prices. I have the names of good
responsible men who are in business in
the east, to whom anyone can ship,
and who will pay the highest market
price for the fruit as soon as it is receiv
ed. I have the promise from the rail
road company of special rates on all
horticultural products. We can ship
100 pounds of fresh or dried fruit for
$1.00, as far east as Chicago. When I
was there dried apples were worth 12}
cents per pound and green apples from
$4.00 to $4.75 per barrel.

PIT AND THE PENDULUM.
A Prisoner Waiting to be Hacked by
Time's Scythe.
ONE MINUTE OF LIFE LEFT.
Thousands Whose Situations Are Scarce
ly Loss Terrible May Easily and
Readily Find Help.
A man lies flat on bis back, bound so
that he cannot move an inch. He is in a
dungeon, at first dark as a well, but in a
few minutes a light in the ceiling, far up,
shows a mechanical figure of Time with
his scythe. The figure descends slowly,
the scythe swings, and the prisoner real
izes that unless some unexpected help
should come, he will be slowly cut to
pieces. What followed is told By Edgar
Allen Poe in the fantastic story called
"The Pit and the Pendulum."
The man awaiting the approach of a
dreadful death is a type of a large class of
unfortunates who.entangled in the strang
ling coils of an octopus, have lost all hope
of freedom. This monster is Morphine.
Perhaps the victim is yet reveling in that
glorious state of exhileration which fol
lows the first use of the drug. If so, like
the man in Poe's story, he has not noticed,
the light in the coiling and is unaware of
his danger. Maybe the disease has pro
gressed so far that the sufferer notices a
weakness of the heart's action, that the
general health is feeble, the body poorly
nourished, the fight double. This is soon
followed by a peculiar twitching of the
muscles, a numbness of the hands and
feet and the utter collapse of the nervous
system. The victim now becomes restless
and uneasy. A feeling of despondency
seizes him. This mental depression in
creases as one course of treatment after
another fails utterly. The future is dark
and filled with gloom. Days of wretched
ness follow nights of horror in endless
procession. His utter helplessness to rid
himself of the incubus adds to his misery.
The terrible effects of the deadly drug be
come more and more apparent. Deeper
and deeper he sinks into the mire of des
pair, until all hope of ever being anything
but a slave in bondage is abandoned. Re
morse and apprehension take possession
of his mind, and Lie temptation to end
his miserable existence becomes almost
overpowering.
But there are few situations completely
hopeless. Poe's prisoner w&s rescued
when the swinging scythe was close to his
breast, and the victims of the Morphine
habit and their shattered nerves are re
stored to the enjoyment of life by a system
of treatment which has been perfected by
R. A. Gunn, M. D., 41 East 2lst street,
New York City, and which has yet to re
cord its first failure. It is not a "tapering
off" or substitution process. It is as narni
less as it is painless. It does away with
all desire for the drug, and quickly re
stores the shattered nervous system to its
normal condition. It treats the condition
as a disease and not as a habit. It is scien
tific and successful. For full particulars
address as above.
