This week a prominent Portland
job printer in Tnn Astoriah office
laughed at the ridiculously low
prices charged for job printing in
Astoria, and said that in Portland all
the offices charged alike and no re-
ductiou. It looks that wav. certainly.
A few days ago there was 2,500 copies
of a school superintendent's report to
be printed in Portland, and here nre
some of the bids: A. Anderson & Co.,
S36S; Paffenberger&Co., S500; Frank
Baltes, S310; Ellis & Sons, S260;
Goo. Himes, S315. That looks like
all the offices cr&rging alike. On one
little job hero is a difference in bids
of nearly 100 per cent.

A farmer had thirty geese which he
concluded to take to market and sell
at the rate of two geese for SI. His
neighbor also bad thirty geese which
he asked the farmer to sell for him
at the rate of three geeso for 81.
When he arrived in town with the
sixty geeso ho was met by a man
who asked how he would sell the
geese. "If you take all together yon
can have the lot at the rate of five
geese for S-," the farmer replied.
The bargain was mada and the far
mer received his pay, S2L When he
paid 310 to his neighbor for his thirty
geese at three for 81 and counted his
balance it struck him that he onght

(two for SI), while he only has S14,

The outlook for loggers on the
Sound is not so bright as it might be.
The large mill operators, seeing that
the surplus of logs is to be great this
fall, notwithstanding the curtailment
of tho outfit by Puget Sound Log
gers' association, have decided to cut
down the price of logs, and now the
price is reported at SQ.50 a thousand.
The starting of the rebuilt Blakely
mill was expected to help the market,
but such was not the case, as that
company's loggers have been cutting
timber ever since the mill burned
nnd now they have in the water more
logs than the mill can use for several
mouths. In other quarters the log
gers seem to have been disappointed
in their estimates and they are now
placed where they will have to rednce
wages or shut down their camps. A
change in these conditions is not
looked for inside of five months.
Of Rev. Rob't Nourse, who lectures
on "John and Jonathan" at the Con
gregational church to-night, the
Sauk, Wis., Democrat says: "The
lecture on Tuesday evening last by
Rev. Robert Nourse was the best ever
delivered in Baraboo. Mr. Nourse is
a man of remarkable, almost phe
nomenal power. We cannot attempt
to tell or even begin to tell all the
delightful things he said. The lec
ture could not have been more fresh
if the subject had been one of which
we had never heard before. It could
not have been more instructive if the
field had been one which had never
been investigated before. It had
passages of thrilling eloquence.
Flashes of the keenest wit illumin
ated almost every paragraph. The
humor that convulsed his hearers
came just often enough to rest them,
so that the two hours consumed in
the delivery seemed too short, and
all were sorry to have him stop. At
the close of the lecture it was sug
gested that he be recalled at some
early date to repeat it, and the sug
gestion was received with hearty ap

A SOURCE OF PROFIT
That Gloucester Fishermen Will Turn to
'lis now about a year since Capt.
Sol. Jacobs, of Gloucester, Mass.,
came out hero looking for some place
to make headquarters for the pro
posed emigration of Gloucester deep
sea fishermen, who heard of tho ocean
wealth of food fishes on this north
Not meeting with a very favorable
reception he went to the Sound, the
result being that the operations of
the two schooners fitted out there,
and the thousands of dollars net
profits from the halibut banks has
attracted the a'ttention of a large
number of hardy men who are con
templating coming this way. One
schooner, the Oscar and Ilattie, with
headquarters at Seattle, has made
810,000 this season, the men in her
all working on shares.
There is no reason why such en
terprise should not win here.- Ex
perienced men say this is even bet
ter headquarters for such fishing
than any point on the Sound. Con
tiguity to the ocean, immnnity from
the teredo, convenience of wharfage
and other facilities give Astoria, in
this regard, tho advantage.
A movement has been on foot here
this week in this direction, which
TnE Astorian believes should be en
couraged. Briefly it is this: Capt.
A. A. Henderson, an old experienced
fisherman himself, Capt. Geo. Mor
tensen, of Skamokawa, and others
have conceived tho idea of building a
schooner especially adapted for the
business, to be manned by Gloucester
fishermen, .working on shares, hailing
from Astoria, with headquarters here,
the nucleus of what is destined to be
a great and profitable industry.
The proposition is to build a 125
ton schooner, costing 816,000, fitting
her out with necessary lines and rig
ging, costing, say, 81,500 more, and
catching halibut, shipping it from
here to Chicago and other eastern
cities where the demand for snch fish
always exceeds the supply.
Capt Mortensen is an experienced
builder, his last vessel being the
schooner Michigan, built for Colwell
& Co., Skamokawa. Ho aud Capt.
Henderson have enlisted the atten
tion of sevoral of our business men.
A working capital of about 320,000
would be required, tho idea being to
form a joint stock company and go
This is simply a proposition of em
bracing our opportunities. It is
in such enterprises as these that As
toria's commercial prosperity lies,
and if this community ignores its ad
vantages in this respect, other com
munities will reach out and secure
what might be ours for the taking.
One Black Drop.
Byron was wise when he wrote, "A
drop of ink may make a million think."
This is indeed true when the blaek
fluid is used to enlighten tho world on
the merits of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medi
cal Discovery. Let consumptives every

who breathe witli pain and toss with
fever through the long night hours.
You will find your cough gone and
sleep balmy as a child's will visit your
pillow. You will thank the drop of ink
that brought the message of mercy to

above reward for a case which they can

Bnrninx of The "Herminia."
The little steamer Herminia has
ended a checkered and unsatisfactory
career by burning np. When Capt.
Scott, of the Telephone, passed down
about 1 o clock yesterday morning,
he saw at Willow bar, about seven
miles below themouth of the Willam
ette, a bright blaze and hailing found
that it was the Herminia and that
the hull and housing Mas on fire.
"Can I do anything?" asked Scott.
"No," was the answer. "Anybody
hnrt?" "No;" and the Telejihone
proceeded on her way. When tho
Undine arrived down she reported
tho stenmer burned to the water's
edge. That is the end of the Her
minia. Arthur Brock, who was
aboard, reports that tho boat, which
had been towing a barge, was at an
chor, and all hands were nsleep.
About a quarter past eleven the fire
started, and there was n general
scramble to put it out, but it was too
far advanced to get it under control.
The barge was cut adrift and after a
little time thelferminia was scuttled
and she sank in ten feet of water.
A IVoinau'H Discovery.
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made and that too by a lady in
this county. Disease fastened its clutch
es upon her-and for seven years she
withstood its severest tests, but her vi
tal organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed incessantly and could not
sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr,
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion and was so much relieved on tak
ing first dose that she slept all night
and with one bottle has been miracu
lously cured. Her name is Mrs. Luther
