If our snow were going to remain, it
wouldn't be a bad idea for some of
our young people to organize a coast

more exhilarating than telling fort

streets, has one advantage over most
towns. The slush of melting snow has
no mud under it, in which the dis
gusted pedestrian can lose his rubbers
or swamp his boots.

any lodge in the jurisdiction.
Though we have- had considerable
sickness in this city recently, wo are
no worse off than many other towns.
From all points come reports of weary
doctors and lively druggests. Most of
our sickness comes from carelessness,
because there isn't a healthier place
naturally in Oregon than Astoria.
One of Astoria's loveliest daughters
was passing along Third btreet The
stranger en route to San Fracnisco
was taking a stroll up town from the
State. The reporter overheard this
remark: uTo tell the truth, I didn't
suppose such a subdued town as this
looks from the boat could produce so
attractive a girl. "Well, Astoria can
equal Portland in one respect"
Separate proposals will be received

A one-legged chap went stumping

Last night as the 1L Ji. Thompson

was as drunk as they make 'em, and
when he got as far as the dock said,

moments after he wanted to have
some one tell him why he was alive,
but no one could answer the poor fellow.

Yesterday the Examiner's reporter
was at the Alder street wharf when
the Telephone from Astoria came in.
Capt Scott hailed us and wanted to
know if we wanted a mes3 of fish.
Now, if there is one thing we like bet

of the tootlisoine smelt ilitted through
our mmd as wo boarded the steamer
and went aft in tbe freight room.
"There," says the jovial captain, "help
yourself," pointing to a pilo of stur
geon that contained 411 of these great
backboneless fish. These fish were
captured at Skmokawa by two men,
between the hours of Saturday night
and Monday .noon, and were valued at
something like S450. In weight, there
was twenty-two tons and a half, and
will net the men something like 200
apiece. They were taken to tbe cold

very small task just now and will bo

If I had known of the Cuticura Kkmk

an Immense amount of suffering. My dis
ease (psoriasis) commenced on my head In a
spot ot larger than h cent. It spread rap
,d,y all over my body and got under my
nails, rue scale would drop off or me all
the time, ami my suffering was cndles and
without rel:er. One thousand dollars would
not temp me to have this disease over
apun. l nni a poor man. but feel i Ich to be
relieved of what .some of the doctors said
was leprosy. Mime rauworm. psoriasis, etc.
I too. . . and . . . Sarsapaillhu over one
year and a half, but no cure . I went to two
or three doctors snd no cure. I cannot
praise the Ccticuka Remedies too much.
They have made my skin as clear and free
from scales as a babv'd. All I uned of them
were three boxes of "Cuticura" and three
bottles of 'Cuticura Keso!vnt," and two
cakes of Cuticura Soap. If you had been
