DEATH OF GEO.
Brother of Col. J. B. Seybolt, of Mur
ray, and Mrs. W. H. Smith,
of Rock Bluff.
The following is taken from the Daily
Times of Palo Alto. California, under
date of October 16, 1907. The deceased
was a brother of Col. J. B. Seybolt, of
Murray, and Mrs. W. H. Smith, of Rock
George L. Seybolt, well known and
highly respected throughout the state,
and for many years postoffice inspector
for a large district, comprising several
western states, died in Mayfield Sunday
at the mature age of 72 years. De
ceased was born in the state of New
York in the year 1835, and was reared
and educated in the Empire state.
When only 20 years of age, he left for
the west, stopping in Illinois for a year
and then continuing to Nebraska, where
he engaged in the freighting business
In 1872 he entered the government
service as postal clerk in Omaha and
four years later was promoted and com
missioned postoffice inspector, covering
Utah, Montana and Idaho, which were
territories at that time.
In 18S3 his district was consolidated
with the Pacific district, and he thus
came into a field of work that was by
far the largest in extent of territory in
the United States. He made his head
quarters in San Francisco, where his
home was also located.
He discharged the arduous duties of
his position conscientiously and satisfac
torily, but a change in the administra
tion in 18S5 retired him from public life.
He leaves behind him besides a widow
Mary E. Seybolt, five children, Mrs. E.
M. Dill, of Detroit; Mrs. Nellie J. Hen
derson of Lindsay; George E., of San
Francisco; Fred L., of Tonopah and
Marion L. Seybolt, of Mayfield.
The funeral was held yesterday in
San Jose, with interment at Oak Hill
A New Lodge.
A lodge has been formed near King
Hill under the name of the "Bucks of
the Timber." The first meeting was at
Mark White's. He furnished the goat.
George Smith was the only successful
rider of the goat and he was declared
After the members were all initiated
and the officers elected, a feast was
spread by Mrs. Mark White, which was
a grand treat to all present. Then
music and dancing was indulged in
until a late hour.
The next meeting was at Wesley
Burnett's, but the "King Snipe" failed
to appear on account of the great in
terest he took in the political election.
There were two applicants for member
ship, but the house was not called to
order (or disorder) on account of the
absence of the successful goat rider. A
feast was spread by Mrs. Burnett that
was grand. The ladies will meet at
the houses of the different members
and the greatest among the lady mem
bers is that they try to outdo each
other in getting up a good supper. One
good thing about the lodge is that
order, good or bad, is insured, from the
fact that one of the members is a
fustice of the peace and that two mem
bers are elected to fill the coming term.
New members are wanted, and any one
will be declared "King Snipe" after
he has ridden the goat to a successful
finish. Lodge Reporter.
An authority on cancer stated that
the cause of it is unhealthy food, espec
ially meat. Although this could not be
said of all cases of cancer, it should be
a vigorous warning to all families. Good,
healthy and nutritious food is not very
expensive and such food should never
cause any trouble in the body. As soon
as you feel after meals some difficulties
like heaviness, nausea or distress, you
should at once use Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine, to put your diges
tive organs in perfect working order.
This remedy hastens the digestion and
removes all stomach troubles. First of
all, let your food be wholesome and you
will keep your body in health and stren
gth; should even then, some indisposition
arise, use Triner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine. It is a perfectly pure
preparation, fit even for the most deli
cate stomach. Good for pale, sickly
ladies and for all who need appetite
and strength. If you need any advice

The following is a very interesting
letter from B. O. Young to his mother
in Muirav, which gives his experience
in traveling from Dawson City, Alaska,
with a bunch of government horses to
Seattle, Washington. Mr. Young has
a host of friends in Cass county, and we

know his whereabouts:
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 14, 1907.
My dear mother:
I got to Seattle last Monday morning
I really didn't mean to Wait three or
four days to write, but it seems like I
I started from Fairbanks, October 12,
and erot here November 11. 1 was
twenty-four days on the trail; had a
good trip through. It was a little slow
and tedious but we had no very hard
time. We had to ferry our feed across
at Salchaket and at the Tanana, sixty
two miles from Fairbanks. We also
had to swim the horses there. That
was a little difficult, as the river was
running full of slush ice. We failed the
first day but succeeded the next day. We
also had to carry our feed across the
Big Delta on pack horses; it was pretty
slow for the first half of the distance,
owing to crossing streams and deep
snow, then we had a fair trail until we
got within sixty miles of Valdez, then
it was pretty rough. Coming down off
the Valdez summit certainly was a
"dinger." It was almost straight down
in some places and was just shooting
the chutes. I was glad when we' got
to the bottom.
There we left our sleds and brought
the horses on, as there was no snow;
on the summit it was three feet or more.
Coming through Keystone canyon we
had to go the pack trail high up on the
bluff. For several miles it is just wide
enough for a pack trail, a sheer drop of
several hundred feet to the stream be
low. When the stream is frozen over
then ihey can go at the bottom of the

since, itwasn trougn, Dut me steamer
had no freight and that allowed it to roll
so frightfully. Even some of the crew
got sick. You could hear men vomiting,
retching and moaning half the length of
the ship. It was a bad one all night.
We passed the place where the steam
ship Valencia went doWn at dusk. She
went down close to the Cape Beale light;
she mistook the Cape Beale light for the
Cape Flattery light. At least I think
that was it, for as soon as you pass the
Cape Flattery light coming from the
south, you turn and pass into the strait.
It was foggy the morning, we come
into Seattle, and had to go very slow.
Even then we jammed into a small boat
at the dock and came very near cutting
her in two, as she was caught between
our boat and the dock. One big
steamer came up within fifty feet of us
coming right at our broadside, too. I
never before realized the danger of the
big fog. One launch was run down and
two men lost a couple of days ago.
There was also a bad street car disaster.
Well I must close for tonight. Good
bye, with love to all. Address general

$5,000,000 of underlying Central Pacific

of aiding the movement of grain
"I went to Washington and saw
Cortelyou but found that the treasury
funds had been deposited in the banks,
so that the very liberal offer of Mr.
