say and Mrs. Rockenlleld, were
thanked. A very pleasant and
profitable timo was enjoyed.
The public well responded to the
invitation to the public meeting in
the hall of representatives. The
larjje assemblage of ladies and gen
tlemen would scarcely indicate the
lenee of so many as are known to
be away. Tho 2nd regimental
Band under Prof. Coomer, in their
handsome uniform, did themselves
nil the town great credit. Miss Lind

A Fine Art Work.
Tho Cyelorama of the Gettysburg
battles now on' exhibition in Port
land has such a marvelous per
spective and tho figures are so life
like that Judge Matthew Deady, af
ter standing and admiring it for
awhile, asked the lecturer how pow
erful a glass they wero looking at
the picturo through, and was sur
prised when told there was nothing
intervening between tho naked eye
and the painting which was but 18
feet from him. Old soldiers who
were at tho battle of Gettysburg be
come intensely interested nnd ab
sorbed and in memory fight tho bat
tips over again. It is a wonderful
work of art aud this latest one is a
great improvement over the first
ones, good as they were. The

To-day Mr. Mays, of The Dallas,

Some Social Chat About an Amuse
ment That Has Many Vo
taries in Salem.
On a recent evening as a Jouhn'AIj
reporter was shying for an item, he
saw a light on Court street, near the
river, which was rushing here, there,
everywhere ! A closer inspection re
veals the fact that it was not a will
o' the wisp, as at first supposed, but
a lantern in the hands of Mr. John
Stelger, who was carrying it from
wicket to wicket for the purposo of
lighting tho way for Miss Josio
Brown and Mr. Childers, Miss Kitty
Card and Mr. Ollio Shelberg, tho
two first being pitted against the
last two in a game of croquet. Tho
game grew very interesting' and
was finally won by Miss Brown nnd
her partner, when they received, in
the reporter's mind, three cheers
and n tiger. After the game Mrs.
Boothby invited the players, their
gallant lantern carrier and the spec
tators over to her rcsidenco whero
Miss "Jo." and Mr. Rossiter fur
nished some excellent music and all
seemed to pass a very enioyable
This game led the reporter
to look around tho city and
he finds there are regular invetcr-
ates who might well bo dubbed
"croquet fiends," or "slaves," a
number of whom meet every day at
Squire Clagget's on Commercial St.
and lay it lovingly over one another
for hours. The roll is called promptly
at 3 P. M. and when one fails to
answer, it is at once decided that he
is sick, and a committee is appointed
to sit on him, a proceeding "that al
ways brings him promptly around
at next roll call unless ho is still
sick, in which case they sit on him
again. The best players they have
are those that hit tho most balls and
go through tho most arches, and the
partners who beat get out first.
Swearing is strictly prohibited.

So those players will indulge in
such expressions as My gorry ! dog

Handsome and Toothsome
By special invitation of Mr. J. R.
N. Bell, the editors of the JouitXAi.
visited his office in tho state capitol,
and were regaled with as handsomo
and luscious peaches as we over saw.
Mr. Bell "knowing how it is your
self" with hard worked newspaper
men and state officials and particu
larly the latter, ahem ! followed
out the benevolent promptings of a
naturally large and warm heart, and
stood treat for thee two classes in
tho matter of fine peaches aud ice
water tho latter in unlimited quan
tities in the lobby. The pouches filled
an aclilng void, nnd w6nt right to
the proper spot deliclously. They
nro a sample of what Southern Ore
gon in general, and Douglas county
and the city of Roseburg hi particu
lar, can produce. Theo were grown
on tho orchard of Tlios. Farqunr,
adjoining the residence of Mr. Bell.
Such fruit can be shipped at mid
night and reach Salem by about
breakfast time tho noxt day. Does
not that beat California fruit that
must bo picked a little green, and
arrive after much longer travel? If
onough more poaches aro ripe, Mr.
Bell will to-morrow treat all tho
visiting editors and publishers, as
lie has sont for sevoral boxes.

A Show Splendidly Advertised.
The Sells Brothers who have
been before the public for over six
teen years, wero never known to do
anything by halves. Whether in ex
hibiting the most noted attractions
that capital and good judgment can
procure, or In conspicuously an
nouncing them to tho public, they
huyo no equal in America. Fame
has never denied her laurels to tho
Sells Brothers' show, but the tro
phies sho has bestowed have ever
been for true merit and not for nier
ctritious display. They not only have
an exceptionally entertaining exhi
bition, but know better the methods
of bringing it before tho people.

In speaking of the contract for
painting tho state capitol, a mistake
was made In tlioso columns, by stat
ing that the successful bidder, Win.
Wieklo, was of Portland, whereas
he is a Salem man. So all of these
contracts mentioned at tho time,
wero secured by Salem firms; B.

gan Bros., plumbers, being thoolhur
