the following Item regarding the manner
in which Justice in muted out by at least
one Linn county official, nays the Stay ton
Mail. Those acquainted with the gentle
man's high standard of veracity will not
quoslion the truthfulness of the story.
Two men residing in a back-woods pre
cinct In the county referred to, were un
able to arrive at a satisfactory agree
niont regarding their business tranao
tions, aa to the amount due one or the
other, and concluded to carry the matter
Into the courts. The case was instituted
and net for trial before a justice of the
peace whose conception of justice wns
only equalled by his apparent ignorance
of equity. The best of legal talent from
Hit county an at was engaged by the res
pective parlies and the cane was argued
at lunuth, The rural Justice of the pence,
having heard the testimony, ordeied the
plnlntiir and diifuniiuiit to submit to lilin
lliulr reHpectivo account hooks and tiok
the case under sdyUemeiit. Having
weighed the argument pro and con aud
having very carefully examined the ac
count books, the Justice tlucrend that the
accounts were aipiare, that neither parly
owed the other parly a cent, that they
lioiitd remain good friends and further
adjudged that one-half of the expenses
of the suit nhotild be paid by the plain
till and defendant respectively. '
Da no k a Aiikai), Last Monday was
tn ideal spring day, warm with sunshine,
It was Juet the kind of a day one could
enjoy after the many weeks of rain, al
though the winter has been very mild
throughout. Herein lies danger, The
buds on fruit trees are rapidly swelling
and some of the early varieties sre far
advanced hocatiHu of the continued warm
wr sther for some lime, That heavy froatt
and eliaps considerable freesing will
occur Inter on, Judging from pastsesaons,
ociiis certain, and If this scuiton, proves
no exception to the rule in this particu
lar, tlm fruit treos and shruhWy will he
to far advanced that the frost will
gienlly damage if not intirely kill the
earlv varieties, eapecially of the small
fruit. A mild winter is an indication of
a lute spring In which event the fruit
crop would suffer.
I. a wis Vom'mk or Iti'siNKss. During
the month of January the Orrgon City
Manufacturing company consumed VI,
700 ioumls of wool, or DO tXH) poundi
more than In any previous month. The
money paid (or this wool was distributed
among the fanneis and the price paid
was Ix-tter than for several years, thus
pntttng Into the pockets of the sheei
raisers thouasnd ol dollars for raw
materia! in one month. To manufacture
tlie product ol the larm Into wares ready
for the market required the lahor of
several hundred people who are con
sumers of the products ol the farm,
theieby furnishing ameant of livelihood
for'two Heptrato and distinct classes of
our people. The Willamette I'll I p and
Taiier cirmpnny ainl the Crown rier
coniay each consume at leaet two
claamsi crl products. They ftiniiah a
market for logs and wood which comet
from Hi timberel sections of Uie stale

where lalKir is employed, beth directly

and spirited, Defter was docile and obe

no other horse, Dexter had the stable

The stable was near the boo so, and In
additiou to Dexter'a stall and harness
room contained a large carriage room,

One night, when tho family and the
servants were away from borne and the
governor was iu the house alone, be

and a bright glare on bis chamber win

sleepy wits ho was startled by a cry un
like any sound ho hud ever beard. As be

uud hastening to the window he learned

and out of the smoke and flumes Dextor

the governor rushed out. The outside

Milwaukee Rcpuhllcans Celebrate
The Milwaukee Republican club cele
brated Abraham Lincoln's births' y last
Saturday evening, February 12. An
unusually large attendance was present.
The good program thst was rendered is
due to the efficient progrum committee,
consisting of Messrs. J. . Wet.ler,
Fredlierg and Henry A. Henneman.
After disposing of the routine order of
business, the president, Mr. K. Scott,
announced that we had gathered here to
celebrate Abraham Lincoln's birthday,
and that the committee had given a great
deal of time in preparing a program (or
the occasion. The entire audience then
lang "America." Among those that
took part were : Master Arthur Bittner,
who ably rendered a violin solo, accom
panied by bis sister, Myrtle. It waa to
well appreciated that an encore was
called (or. Miss Johana Kiel recited
Lincoln's favorite poem, "Why Should
the Spirit of Mortal be Proud?" Miss
Kiel is one who promises to be an elocu
tionist. Annie Bernhsrd ably rendered
the "Bavarian Yoodle," which wat ac
companied by her brother, Samuel, on
the autoharp. Mr. S. C. Spencer then
gave a very able address on the "Life
and Political Career of Abraham Lin
coln." At times be kept the audience
in continual laughter by telling a number
o( "Honest Abe's" comical stories." Mr.
Spencer is an able talker and promises
to do good work In the coming campaign.
Prof. Hunter's quartet cannot pass with
out mention They ably rendered "Life
in tny Childhood Days" and sang "Fairy
Moonlight" for an encore.
The president, Mr. It. Scott, then
briefly spoke of Lincoln's lii'e, home and
tomb which be hat seen personally.
Good feeling prevails in the republican
ranks in Milwaukee and it promises to
be one of the banner precincts of the
The sarprise for All.
Mr. James Jonee, of the drusi firm of

that physicians at Cowden and Pana
could do nothing for ber. It seemed to

she began to get better from first dose,

The factory towns of the East are noted
for affording the best market to the neigh
boring farmers and gardeners in proportion
to the population of any of the towns in
that section. The reason for this is that
the people of these towns have a fixed in
come upon which they can always depend,
and, as a consequence, they are liberal buy
ers, paying cash for all their purchases.
