Every stmU-nt know s that in dose rea soning parallel lines of thought are laid down and deductions educed. It is not our purpose at this time to ter into n learned discussion, ami we have drawn the above visible lines sim ply to bring them prominently before your eye anil ask what tiiev represent to you. cn A railroad man to whom we showed them saitl, "To me those four lines repre sent a double-track railway." A doctor replied hi the same interroga tory, "The lines are to me the large ar teries and veins lying alongside each other in the human laxly." As will lie observed the same lines to either gentleman suggested different lines of thought, as lxith looked at them through eyes accustomed to see only that which fertile most part occupied their at tention. To the writer both answers put an old truth in a fresh and original light. As every intelligent man knows, the blood of «very living person flows with almost railroad speed through the arteries, forced by that wonderful en gine, the heart. From the arteries it is side-tracked through the capilliaries and and veins, and every drop of blood goes through the kidneys for purification less than 2500 times every twenty-four hours. If the kidneys lie diseased the im purities of the blood containing the worn ont tissues, and deleterious acids are not drawn out orexeretedas nature intended, hut continually pass and repass through every fiber of the system, carrying death and decay witli every pulsation. Unless remedied the heart becomes weakened, the lungs trying to do double work break down, the liver becomes congested, the stomach refuses to digest food and the re sult is a general breakdown. Why ? Because the kidney's, the sewers of the system, are foul and stopped up, and the entire blood becomes nothing more nor less than sewage. Now is it not criminal; nay, suicidal, to allow such a state of things to continue when a simple remedy is within your reach, known fora certainty to do as rep resented, which will open the closed pipes of the kidneys, ullow the effete matter to escape, relieve the overworked heart, lungs and liver, cause a healthy appetite, put the bloom of health in your cheek, the dove of hope in your breast and the light of life in your eye ? You already have 'divined tho remedy we have reference to; its praise is univar sal, its influence world-wide, low prejudice to blind you to vour liest interests, but to-day procure Warner's Safe Cure and lie put on the straight road to rude health and correct living. Our parallel and closing lines to vou are. take our advice and your experience will justify you in thanking us for bringing under your notice a remedy without a parallel. or woman mi Do not al The Thousands of l'eitcct Steeds Owned by the Shah. It is told that the Persians have from earliest, limes been noted for horseman ship. Tiie Persian horses, though full of spirit, are generally far more gentle in disposition than American horses. Tho usual paces are a very fast walk, tho canter and a run. The trot is not a favorite gait in the East, and it is tho opinion of the Orientals that it is a gait far more fatiguing for long rides than tho gallop, and only fit for carriage horses. A strong horse, six years old, can bo bought at Teheran for $45. A very superior blood horse can he bought for $3.'A) or $4o0. Tho average price for a good and handsome steed is $60. The «tables are generally very primitive af fairs, each horse having a separate composed of stone and manger, mud, built against the gardon wall, with a few branches thrown over to keep off tho sun, for during nine months there is scarcely any dew or rain. Each horse is also tethered by the hind foot to a spike driven into tho ground. But tho greatest care is taken, notwithstanding, in regard to the health of those horses. They are ulways care fully blanketed, and In cold weather, or after nightfall, hardly any thing can bo seen of them but, the ears and tail, they are so completely muffled with blankets of felt. Tho royal stattles of Persia have always been stocked with hundreds und thousands of picked steeds, fit for Btato pageants, hunting and war. The importance attached to this brunch of the King's household brought about the custom, whieh ex isted from time intmemoral until with in the present reign, that a fugitive from the wrath of tho King could find a sanctuary in the royal stables.

As well as enjoying the <lis tinction of Is-ing the first full trainload shipment of agricultural implements that was ever made across the continent, it is one of the largest fast express freights that ever came into Portland, and for I bis reason it is of s|«*«'ial interest to every prominent resident of the city.
