Cough medicines, Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral is in greater demand than ever
No preparation for Throat and Lung
Troubles is so prompt in its effects, sc
agreeable to the taste, and so widelj
known, as this. It is the family medi
cine in thousands of households.
"I have suffered for years from a
bronchial trouble that, whenever I take
cold or am exposed to inclement weath
er, shows itself by a very annoying
tickling sensation in the throat and by
difficulty in breathing. I have tried a
great many remedies, but none does so
well as Ayer's Cherry Pectoral which
alwaj'S gives prompt relief in returns of
my old complaint." Ernest A. Kepler,
Inspector of Public lloads. Parish Ter
re Bonne, La.
" I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home Use.
I have tested iu curative power, in my
family, many times during the past
thirty years, and have never known it
to fail. It will relieve the most serious
affections of the throat and lungs,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
13. G. Edgerly, Council Bluffs, Iowa.
"Twenty years ago I was troubled
with a disease of the lungs. Doctors
afforded mo no relief and considered
my case hopeless. I then began to uso
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and, befpre I
had finished one bottle, found relief. I
continued to take this medicine until a
cure was effected. I believe that Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral saved my life."
Samuel Griggs, "Yaukegan, 111.
" Six years ago I contracted a severe
cold, which settled on my lungs and
soon developed all the alarming symp
toms of Consumption. I had a cough,
night sweats, bleeding of the lungs,
pains in chest and sides, and was so
E rostrated as to be confined to my
ed most of the time. After trying
various prescriptions, without benefit,
my physician finally determined to givo
mo Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I took it,
and the effect was magical. I seemed
to rally from the first dose of this
medicine, and, after using only three
bottles, am as well and sound as ever."

The Trials of Blockaded Pas.-eD?;ers.
Sacramento, Jan. 23. According
to present indications there is no pros
pect that the snow blockade on the
Sierras, which has now lasted nine
days, will soon be broken. This after
noon a rotary snow plow with four en
gines got stuck in a cut near Shady
Hun. There are several cuts between
Towlea and Shady Hun, where- the
banks are fco high that the rotary will
not throw the snow over the embank
ment, and in consequence it tumbles
back upon the track, burying the plow
completely. Then there is nothing to
do but to "back for a distance and take
a run for the middle bank of snow.
Snow is falling on the hills again
this evening, banking up in the cuts
and covering the rails. Indications
are that the night will be a stormy
John Coglan, operator at Cascades,
who had been sick with pneumonia,
died last evening.
Sax Fiuncisco, Jan. 23. The post
ofllce officials in this city are in a de
spondent mood. Eight days' mail is
snowbound on tho Central Pacific
road between Reno and Shady Run,
and when tho blockade is broken it
will all be in the postofllce within a
few hours' time. Such a tremendous
quantity of letters and papers as is on
these trains has never before been
handled at one time in 'the postofllce.
The railway mail clerks, who are tem
porarily laid off op account of the
closing of the Central and Oregon
lines, are to meet the mail trains at
Oakland. "Only the letter mail will
be touched iirst, and if we get all off
our hands in the first day we will be
doing well," said deputy Carr to-day.
"Then the tremendous quantity of
newspapers and packages will be at
tacked, and I think will be very for
tunate indeed if it is all cleared away
in three or four days.""
San Fbancisco, Jan. 23. A number
of passengers who were snow bound
at Emigrant Gap, on the Central Pa
cific, have arrived here, having left the
train aud come by.the snowshoe route.
Peter French, of Lake county, Or.,
was among the first who came
throngli, and ho reports having had a
stormy trip. He says that J. J. Jen
nings, a New York journalist, who
came to meet Nellie Bly, gave out
and wanted to tie down in the snow.
They had to drag him along, and con
stantly aroused him to do his best
Jennings, they said, was very plucky,
bnt physically unable to cope with the
snow and cold. Notwithstanding tho
hard experiences of the travelers, they
did their best to kill time. They in
augurated the publication of a paper
called The Daily Snow. Four num
bers of it were issued up to the time
the snowsboers left.
Denver, Jan. 23. Tho first train
from Portland for several days over
the Northern Pacific arrived this af
ternoon at 4. o'clock. Tho San Fran
cisco route was opened to-day and the
first through train for the coast left
Denver this morning. The entire Rio
Grande system is now open, tho snow
blockade having been raised late yes
terday af temoon.
Grant's Or., Jan. 23. Six inches of
snow fell here to-day. There are thir
teen inches of snow on the level, and
it is still snowing. There are eighteen
inches of snow on the uplands about
Wasco and John Day.
A Missing Steamship.
New York, Jan. 23. Agents of the
National steamslup line stated to-day
that they have no additional informa
tion regarding the steamship Erin,
which it is feared has foundered with
all on board. Tho agents, however,
still maintain that there is still hope
that the Erin may have made some
port in a disabled condition. A crew
of sixty-seven was shipped at Liver
pool, and the names are not known
here, but Captain Tyson was the com
mander and John Grant first oflicer.
Besides the regular crew there were
twenty cattlemen on board, six of
whom were working their passage
back to Liverpool and were unknown.
About fifteen were Americans.

There are so many little incidents
of his life among u which are made

little story he told me of it us T sat in

He had visited his mother in Athens
Christmas week and he said: "I don't

membered all the things I liked.
She toasted me some cheese over

SEALING SEASON OPENS.
Only Three Sealers Will Go From Paget
The sealing schooner Ailie I. Alger,
Capt E. P. Miner, will start out on a
Eealing cruise on the 27th of January.
The vessel i3 now receiving an outfit
of provisions. Tho schooner Henry
Dennis is being fitted out at Port
Townsend and will start on a cruise
on the first of February. At Victoria
28 sealers are being fitted out From

as soon as finished, which will bo

three vessels from the Sound. Last
year there were over three times
that number. Tho British sealers
will this year outnumber the
Americans by quite a large majority.
Those who are interested in tho seal
ing business claim that thero is a
potent reason for so large a number
of sealers going from Victoria, and it
is because the British protect their
interests better and an English sealer is
safer from seizure in the Behring sea
than an American vessel is. In conse
quence of this a number of Americans
are interested in the sealers which
will sail from Victoria this year un

In si talk with Capt Minor he said:

to 59, and there will be money iu the
business. No, the business has not

outside or Bchriug sea, as the number
of seals captured was limited. This
year, however, it is anticipated that
inoney will be made, r.3 the benl skin
catch is now being contracted for at 9
apiece. The reason why seal skins
havo advanced in price from 86 and 37
apiece to 9 is because they are more
fashionable this; year that they have
been for several years past"

"I cannot tell as yet The Alger

July or August, when sho will arrive
at the Behring sea. Whether we will
enter the sea to catch seals or not de
pends altogcthar on the policy of the
government. If the government al
lows ns to enter we will do so, but if
not we will not risk seizure by poing
into forbidden waters. I cannot say
whether or not the policy of tho gov
