City in Excellent Condition.
Br, Bhepardson himself has been
quite active in educational lines, being
a proficient scholar in the Imiguaties re
lated to the Bible and its hiotory. His
summers for the last few years have
been spent in giving Bible lectures at
various summer assemblies, for which
be has been in great demand. He has
been paralyzed for the past ten vears
this coining month, and for the past
eight years has been going round in bis
wheel-chair doing evangelistic work.
In his methods r f " presenting tbe
Scriptures he is entirely unsei.sational,
believing that the head must be kept
clear if the heart is to be materially
changed in its purposes. He uses none
of the objectiona! features of modern
evangelists. His work at the First Bap.

services from the very beginning. We
are satisfied that those who miss the
earlier part of hi work will regret it af

Baptist churches unite in all the week
day services, retaining the Sunday morn
ing services in their own churches, and
the Congregational, church its Sunday
evening service os well.
The annual report of the water works
commissioners submitted to the last
meeting of counsel is an interesting
document. The report is the Eleventh

A Humorist on Marriage,
Marriage, If not carried to excess, Is
I wise provision and sacred obligation.
Marry your opposite as far as possible,
especially as regards sex. You will nev
er regret It. If possible, marry above
your station. Both of you should do
this; It is sure to advance your race.
Do not marry a foreigner unless highly
recommended by those In whom you
nave perfect confidence or nnless you
want to very much Indeed. Do not en
tourage long engagements. It Is better
to get weary of each other at your lei
sure after marriage than to do It be
forehand. Courtship, however, Is a
m?st delightful Industry and should not
be rashly broken In upon by marriage.
Some people seem to be admirably fit
ted for suitors, but fall In other occu
pations. This is very fortunate, indeed.
No suitor can be sure Of a permanent
situation. The supply greatly exceed

.Down through' the meadows we come
to the playground of the poet Shelley,
where' the old mill still stands,' Its
grinding stones propped against Its
sides, quietly registering the flight of
time. Swans glide to and fro upon tbe
pend or rest upon He edge. Black and
white rabbits scurry across the wood
ed paths. Fantailed pigeons disport
upon the lawn. In the tell grass tiny
fawns feign sleep, while furtively
watching with half closed eye, and

Being a special aversion of the game
keeper's, this bird takes apparent de
light in annoying him in every way.
Prying about uutil he finds a choice
nest of pheasant's eggs, he dispatches
the dainty morsels Instantly, thereby
destroying the hopes of both keeper
and hen. Every effort to break him of
this pernicious habit has been unsuc
cessful. Once the keeper resolved upon
a plan which he thought would with
out doubt prove effectual. Having
hard boiled a number of eggs, he car
ried them in steaming hot water to the
field and placed them before the ever
ready emu. Much to his surprise, the
dished seemed to appeal strongly to
the voracious appetite of the bird, for

Profanity In Enrope.
The most ordinary conversation In
Spain Is rarely carried on without oaths
being Interpolated, and Invocations of
saints and expressions which border on
swearing are common even on the lips
of ladles. Spanish workmen do not un
derstand an order unless It Is delivered
to them with a strong garnishing of
profanity; masters swear at their serv
ants, ladles at their children, school
masters at their scholars and officers at
their men. It must be remembered that
all over the continent profanity Is more
common than In England. In Germany
even it is not uncommon to hear school
masters swear at the boys, a state of
things unheard of and Impossible here,
while both In France and Italy oaths
are taken as a matter of course and
applied equally to man and beast At
the same time it should be remembered
that most continental "cuss words"
are not taken so seriously as ours.

A Golden Opportunity
In the Bohemia Mining Dis
tricts of Southern Oregon
This is proving to be one of the richest mining districts in the World and may
in no great while rival the celebrated Cripple Creek District of Colorado.
The Hiawatha Mining & Milling Co.
of Cottage Grove, Oregon, Bohemia District
Has recently, during development work, struck very rich ore in lauge quantities and the company
has decided to place a stamp mill on the property at a very early date and have placed a block
of stock on the market to raise money for that purpose and are selling stock at ten cents per
share, which no doubt will be worth at least $i per share, as soon as dividends are paid', which
will be in the near future. Don't wait until this block is sold and then kick yourself because" you
can't get stock for less than $i and more per share. ,
In The ILeroy Mine
Only a few hundred feet from the properties of the Hiawatha during the last two weeks a great
strike has been made. A ledge of ore twenty-six feet wide from wall to wall has been uncovered
that runs hundreds of dollars to the ton. All of the Leroy stock was at once taken from the
market and not a dollars worth of it can now be had at any price. The stock was selling for
ten cents per share and is to day worth $i.oo and none for sale. This same ledge no doubt runs
through the property of the Hiawatha as well as other fine ledges whicn have already been un
covered. The last block of Hiawatha stock is now on the market. When it is disposed off the
company will have sufficient money to put in their ten stamp mill and continue their development
work. Not a dollar of this stock has been sold for less than par. ten cents per share. In six
months in all human probability this stock will be worth $i.oo per share and will go much
higher as soon as the mill gets to work and the dividends begin to be paid.

' A Correction.
The item in the Courier last week in
j egard to the settling of the trouble be
tween the painters' and carpenters' un
ion was not entirely fair to tbe former
organization. There are sixteen mem
bers of the local painters' union, and
they number in their ranKs most of tbe
best painters in the city. The trouble
between the painters and carpenters,
while it has not beea entirely settled, is
in a fair way to be adjusted .within a
short time. The Courier has no desire
to print other than the exact truth about
this matter, and we hope now that the
trouble is ended between these two la
