Myers yesterday telegraphed Deputy H. A. Smidt to arrest the British ship Rose crana. The exact facts are not at present ascertainable, but it appears that the captain agreed with a sailor boarding house at Portland to take a crew at S65 (which is 820 less than usual) the crew to be on board when the vessel was loaded. They weren't on hand, and ho shipped a crew here. Hence these steers. Since tho Fourth one person has imported here three car loads ol eggs in all, 36,000 dozen and twelve tons butter, says a Portland paper. He has made a decent profit on these articles, as ono deserves to who takes the chances on shipping such perish ablfl imnds so far in July weather.

In an upper town coach yesterday, beyond the city limits, Jas. Burk, who proclaimed himself a bad man from the north of Norway, tried to iorce in witu a cigar in nis moutn, to where some ladies were sitting. Fred Newell made some restraining re marks, and Burk filled the air with profanity. He was arrested and will be tried at four o'clock this afternoon. He says if the justice only fines him S5 it'll be all right and he'll pay it; oinerwise, otherwise, lie also pro poses to bust ud the Astoria street railway company in a suit for forcible ejectment. In speaking about the North Pa cific fisheries, captain Johnson, of the Oscar and Hattie, says: "There are several things needed on this coast The most important thing is a more thorough coast survey, and more lighthouses. For instance from cape Beal to Sitka, a distance of 800 miles, there is no lighthouse, and in case of a storm or thick weather this makes it dangerous. I trust some improvements in this line will be made, as any losses among the Glou cester fishing men now would have a bad effect upon the others who con template coming." PERSONAL MENTION. O.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclu sively that more persons die from dis eases of the Throat and Lungs than any other. It is probable that every one, without exception, receives vast numbers of Tubercle , Germs into the system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling sensation in the throat and if allowed to con tinue their ravages they extend to the lungs producing Consumption and to tho head, causing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to proceed will in time cause death. At the onset you must act with prompt ness; allowing a cold to go without your attention is dangerous and may lose you your life. As soon a3 yon feel that something is wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob tain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrup. It will give you immediate relief. ' Got Even With. The Old Man.

TEN THOUSAND DOLLAES GONE. The Loss Believed toave Been Occa sioned In Portland. The inquiries of two keen-eyed in dividuals on the R. R. Thompson last Tuesday morning coming down and their snbsequentactions here during the day were noticeable, but a request that nothing be Baid about the mat ter occasioned silence. However, as reference has been made to it, the whole .thing may as well be told, in detail. Last Saturday afternoon the Com mercial National Bank took a sack containing ten thousand dollars, TJ. S. gold coin, addressed to L W. Case of this oity, to the Pacific express office, for transmission. The Astoria way.bill was regularly made out the R. R. Thompson duly arrived here, but when the express box arrived at the express office here Sunday morn ing, dilicent search on the part of H. T). Thing failed to 'find any sack with 810,000 in it. He tele graphed the shortage to the Portland official and immediately upon the ar rival of the agent, Mr. C. P. Upshur from Helena, notified him of the dis crepancy. So sbon as the Portland offioe was notified, steps were taken to pay Mr. Case the 810,000, and search was instituted on board the R. R. Thompson. Nothing was elio ited ou board the boat, nor in the city, more than that which wonld tend to confirm a surmise that the 810,000 mysteriously disappeared sometime between the receipt for it in the company's office in Portland and the arrival t the express wagon at the Ash street dock in Portland Saturday night. The pursers of the O. R. & N. boats which carry the express box are usu ally paid $10 a month for looking after the oompany's box. They have keys to the box. and check off the contents on the way bill. On this particular trip of theThompson th.ero was a new purser Struble on board. It was his first trip; he had no key to tho box, could havo no 'ac cess to it, and is positivo no one tam pered' with it while it was in his charge. When the detectives were in this city they got the young man who puts the express box on the wagon and drives it to the office, to oomo downio where they had prepared a box. They had taken the express box, weighed everything, to an ounce, what it weighed or what it should have weighed Sunday morning if every thing on the way bill except the 810,000 had been in the box, and then, borrowing 810,000 in gold twenties, they put that also in the box, fixed it just as ordinary, and asked Coa to put it on the wagou and drive up to Upshur's office. "Whew!" said ho, tho first thing, as he got it on his shoulder, "this box weighs lots more than it did Sunday morning." An expressive glauce passed between the detectives, Coe's remark being good evidence that the box was heav ier by S10,000in gold coin that it was when ho shouldered it Sunday morning on the O. R. & N. dock here. Mr. Newcomb, the superintendent, is sparing no effort to apprehend the thief or traoe the loss of the money, Mr. Case has been paid the 810,000, and no one is out anything except the express company. Millions of dollars have been car ried by express from Portland to As toria, and this is the first loss of magnitude that has ever resulted in the history of the business on the lower Columbia.

His Interesting Fen Fictares or Men and Things. The Ogden Standard takes occasion to write up Southern California in a recent issue, and pays its kind regards to "the hidden hand" and compliments the fes tive flea in the following realistio manner: Every lady carries an extra hand in southern California. Without it life would not be" worth living, despite the alleged fine climate. When a young man takes his girl to the theater in San Diego, and after the curtain has fallen upon a passionate love scene, whispers to her, "Give mo your little white handl" sho does not falter, blush and reply in an agitated manner, "ask par one, answers in a matter of fact way, "Certainly, but give it back quick, 'cause I want to use it myself;" and then she presents to him a tiny hand, shapely as a fairy's and white as ivory. He does not press it tor his bosom or lips; he shove3 it down under his lingerie at the back of his neck: and after it has ar- 1 rived at the one spot between his should ers which he cannot reach with either one of his own hands he agitates it vig orously, in lact, ne scratches with it, and as the ensuing delicious sensation thrills throueh his beinc he crnnts. "U-g-g-g, Clara, ain't that good!" -Then he withdraws the hand from its tempor ary hiding place and gracefully restores it to his girl and she immediately con ceals it on her person. One busy moment passes, during which the expression of her face changes from annoyanco to pleasure, anu sue answers in a satisued gurgle, "U-g-g-g, Charlie, I should think sol" They enjoy tho next scene of the play, because they have scratched their flea bites. The hand which they use is known in Southern California as a "back scratcher," and no lady of the bon ton appears in a recherche assemblage with out this necessary adjunct of luxurious life. Fleas swarm by billions in San Diego and Los Anseles. Thev crawl all over people at theaters and balls. Of courso when ono nips a man on his arm, leg or bosom ho can pinch tho snot and get up a counter-irritation. But when a brutal flea fastens between his shoulders about eight inches below the top of his collar, his unaided hands are of no uso and ho must havo a "back scratcher" in stantly or bocomo n gibbering idiot. This "baok scratcher" consists of a small hand carved from ivory, with the fingers bent over like the teeth of a rake, tho hand being fastened to a, slender ehpny or rubber wand about eighteen inches in length. Several "back scratchors" banc as useful ornaments in everv fashionablo parlor in JSan Diece: and no dinner is considered complete without a "back. scraicner at eacn pinto, it is regarded as an almost superhuman moral agent, since it has abolished ninety per cent. u. buouiuiuuibjr ui uumuurxi vaiiionii3. An Ogden man who returned disgusted recently, has presented the Standard with his family "back scratcher," which was so necessary there but is useless here'. It will bo kept on exhibition at this office for a few days; and the public is cordially invited to examino it and give it a trial. , It has been stated to us as an netnnl fact by an eastern man, who was befooled into buying some property in southern California, that one-half tho supposed real estate was fleas. AVhcn he picked up a handful of "soil" to examine it, ho had to look quick or'it crawled away irum uis nana ana scattered over his person. It is truly no figure of speech to say that a man who buys land there "gets bit." Virginia Clear ani Toliacco Store J. W. BOTTOET, Proprietor, Water Street, Two Doors East of Olncy.
