Ore.—The crew of 34 of Slates Lines steamer Iowa perished Sunday and only a portion of the vessel, which grounded near Peacock Spit at the mouth of the Columbia river, remains in the roaring breakers. The United States Coast Guard cutter Onondaga. which returned to port after an unsuccessful battle to aid the stricken Iowa, took a beating in the effort and one of her lifeboats wns smashed. She was unable to get near the Iowa. Only the foremast of the Iowa could be seen. Bodies picked up thus far gave evidence of the terrific pounding of the seas. The clothes were torn, one man had a gaping wound in his neck and was scarred from contact with tho wreckage which was floating ashore. Beachcombers lined the shore near Suoview as the wreckage floated ashore. Lumber, flour, matches and other articles in the Iowa's cnrgp were strewn al.png the beach. The board bearing the ship's name on the bridge also floated in as one of the Inst tragic reminders of the vessel's fate. THE MORE VITALLV IMPORTANT OUR ARE, THE 472Se THEY HAVE IN THEM/ OUR.

Black-Draught Relief Is Prompt and Refreshing It's a good idea that so many people have—to keep Black-Dttmght handy so they can take a dose for prompt relief at the first sijjtt of constipation. ' "I have used Black-Draught a long time, about as long as I can remember, and have a package on my shelf now." writes Mr. Sherman Sneed, of Even£Ville. Tenn. "I take Black- Draught for constipation which causes headache, a.tired feeling, bll- liousness, a bad taste in the mouth and sluggish feeling. Black Draught, taken about two nights, clears up this trouble and I get all right." Black-Draught is made of mediduv al herbs, dried an finely ground, but no other change in their natural condition. It is a laxative that men ami women like so well because of the refreshing relief it brings in constt r.aticn troubles. Blue Falls EMPGRIA.
