OUK GLORIOUS CLIMATE. Delightful August Weather in Astoria. Every month Tire Astoriak Dub Iishes a meteorological summary of the weather of the preceding thirty days, kindly furnished by Sergeant Griffin in charge of the signal service station at this point, and the genial pleasantness of our climate is so much a matter of course to us who have the good fortune to live here and enjoy it, that sometimes un noticed are the blessings that we in this regard, enjoy. For instance, in the official report we find that during the month of August, 1888, when heat, misery and positive discomfort were the unhappy lot of inland dwellers, when 108 and even 110' degrees was the marking of the thermometer in eastern Oregon and Washington, the highest temper ature recorded in Astoria was seventy-four degrees. This simple fact speaks volumes for the delightful cli mate of western Oregon and the month of the Columbia river. No summer resort on the Atlantic coast, few places on even the favored Pa cific coast, has so fine a record for equable temperature as Astoria, and to the weary thousands weakened by heat and summer discomforts this city is a sanitary refuge. JNons this all: next winter, when the Astorian reads of heavy snowfall and the blizzards that sweep with Arctic chill through the country to the east, he can only pity the sad dwellers in a land where the ther memeter goes down below zero, and picking from the flowers in his front yard a fresh bouquet for his button hole, thank his stars that his lines are cast in pleasant places and that neither the torrid heats of summer nor the frigid winds of winter can mar the serenity of his joy. As for the people east of the Rock ies, ft is incredible to them that we on this north Pacific slope enjoy such equable and happy temperature. If you who read this, know ot n friend in tho land of sun-strokes, mad dogs, malaria and misery, send him or her the following official summary of August weather in Astoria in the year of onr Lord, 1838: Mean temperature for month, (SI 2 degrees; highest temperature, 74 de grees ou the 7th; lowest, ! degrees on the Cth, 13th, 10th, 2Titli and 28th; monthly daily range of temperature. 20 degrees; greatest daily range, 17 degrees; least daily range, 8 degrees; mean daily range, 12 tleKrees; pre vailing direction of wind, west; high est velocity, 22 miles per hour; total rainfall for month, .74 of one inch; in August, 18S4, the rainfall was 1.83 inches; '85, .02 inches; '8(5, .56; '87, .40; '88, .74; number of foggy dnya, none; number of clear days, 14; fair, fi; cloudy, 11; lightning, none; thunder storms, none. PERSONAL MENTION. Gustav Hansen returned from Portland yesterday morning. Capt. Geo. Flavel has so far recov ered as to be again nble to he on the street. Prof. W. E. Johuson and wife go to Portland to-night, where they will make their future residence. The 'Telephone" nnil "Potter." There was no race between the Potter and Telephone yesterday, but thore was a mighty lively "gittiu' thar,"and the progress of the two boats was watched with interest from the time the steamers came flying across the bay. Both boats left Portland ou their usual time, the Telephone making twenty-three laudings. The Potter came along whilo the Telephone was lying at Brookfield, aud when she pulled out, her side wheel rival was coughing down tho river well in ad vance. Neither boat was in trim for any great spurt of speed, the Tele phone beiug especially handicapped by n largo quantity of freight and about 30 tons ot water in her tank, the I'oiters tans being reported conv paratively lighter. The two boats presented a pretty sight as they rounded Tongue Point, streaking through tho lapping water, and vol umes of white stonm issuing in curl ing masses from their smoko stacks. At 1:17 the Potter blew her whistle; 93 seconds after the Telephone blew hers a little above the same spot, and both glided into their landing places, the lines being cast off and made fast at a lively rate. Capt. Scott and Capt Pease have both showed good sense in steadily refusing to race this summer. They both have good boats and are justly proud of them. All the same no one who has never had his hand on the wheel of a fast boat knows how strong the temptation is to have the engineer 'let her out," when ho has an idea he can leave the other boat in his wake, It is a matter of just pride to know that both those boats built on the river are the peers in swiftness of any on the coast. Men who saw the two coming down yesterday afternoon say they were making twenty miles. an hour. A Case of Necessity. The fact of the Northern Pacific building boats to run on the upper Columbia river should induce the ). K. & N. Co. to lessen their freight charges from The Dalles to the sea board. Without the company makes some movement in this direction, tho wheat cropof eastern Oregon will seek tide water on tlie Sound. Dalles Times-Mountaineer, 1. The Love That Lives.

The modes of death's approach are various, oml 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 tho system and whore 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 (ho lungs producing Consumption and to tho head, causing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to proceed will in timo cause death. At the onset yon must act with prompt ness; allowing n cold to go without your attention is dangerous nnd may lose yon your life. As soon as you feel that something is wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob tain a bottle of iioscheos Uerman Syrup. It will give you immediate relief. m - Death of Newton Scott. Newton Scott, the well-known en gineer ou the Telephone, died in Portland yesterday morning. His uncle, Capt. TT. B. Scott, sat with him until it was time to leave on the down trip yesterday morning, and when he left his nephew's bedside it was evident he would soon close his eyes on all things earthly. He was in the 34th year of his age, a faithful, obliging man, liked by all. He leaves a wife and child, resident in Port land. About five years ago he met with an accident on the City of Salem, whereby his spine was injured. Since then he has never been well, the dis ease finally developing into conges tion of the brain, which proved fatal. The latest style of Gents' Boots and Shoes at p. ,j. Good-man's.

No single disease has entailed more suffer ing or hastened the breaking up of the con stitution than Catarrh. The sense of mell, of taste, of sight, of hearing, the human voice, tho mind one or more, and sometimes all, yield to its destructive influence The poison it distributes throughout tho system attacks every vital force, and breaks up tho most ro bust of constitutions. Ignored, bocause but little understood, by most physicians, impo tently assailed by quacks and charlatans, those suffering from it havo little hopotobo relieved of it this side of tho crave. It is time, then, that tho popular treatment of this terri ble disease by remedies within tho reach of all passed into hands nt onco competent and trustworthy.

It is instan taneous in affording relief in all head colds, sneezing, snuffling and obstructed breathing, and rapidly removes tho most oppressivo symptoms, clearing the head, sweetening tho breath, rostoring the senses of smell, tasto and hearing, and neutralizing the constitu tional tendency of tho disease towards the lungs. liver and kidneys.
