A Fine Publication. The Courier-
Herald of this city, has issued an illus
trated New Year's .number, which is in
every way a verv creditable publication.
The literary part of the work was done
by W. 0. Campbell and the mechanical

work in every way. Enternrise. (The
reason part of the work was done in
Portland was this: It was impossible to
get skilled printers in Oregon Oity and
with our rush of holiday printing we had
more than we could do without this tz

Mrs. Delia Coleman, daughter of Mrs.
Martha Klinmler, died Jan 13, 1001.
She leaves a busband, two little sons,
two brothers, a ulster and a mother, be
sides many friends to mourn her loss.
Father Time with sickle in hand
Is traveling through. the land
Harvesting his precious grain.
Though our loss 'tis Heaven's gain.
Death again has visited our nook
And from us a precious one took.
This time 'twas a daughter dear.
It seems doubly sad, as it has not been
a year '.
Since the husband this life departed
Awl left this poor mother broken hearted
To her the cross is heavy to bear;
May she cast on the Saviour her every
Besides this mother bereft
A husband and two little boys are left;
Also, two brothers and a sister dear
Remain ou this mund are sphere.

But when the Saviour ce'id we have to
We all have to calmly await
And meekly submit to oui fate.
We all have dear ones gone before ,
Who are waiting for us on the shore
Of the land where there is no night ?
But all is beautiful, fair and bright.
