Cbanjeof Time. At the solicitation
of parties iu this cit- through the ac
commodating agent of the P. T. Co., Mr.
John li. Monteitb, the tiuno for starting
on the Salem excursion has been changed.
.Instead of leaving this city Sabbath after
noon at 2 o'clock, the steamer will leave
ner wharf at precisely 4 o'clock on Mon
day morning, the 20th instant. This,
although it necessitates early rising, will
meet the wishes of a large proportion of
those going to the Odd Fellows celebra-j
tion at Salera on that day. However, it
may be well enough for all to understand
that the steamer will start at 4 o'clock
harp, mad those who calculate ou nay
delay after that time will be disappointed.
Tickets for the round trip will be SI 50,
to be had of the agent at the P. T. Co.'s
Literary Exhibition. The literary
exhibition given by the scholars connect
ed with the Albany Collegiate Institute
on Friday eveniag26th. inst., was greet
ed by the presenco of a largo audience.
The declamations, orations, essays, dia
logues, etc , were well delivered, and
"brought down" the audience every whiz.
The big "Injun," "Ilyas Tyce, of Warm
Springswas nearly lightning on Jargon,
and succeeded in "localizing" very well.
"The principal feature of the entertain
ment was the vocal and instrumental
-music, Miss Kate Conner presiding at
the melodion, assisted by Miss Ada
Beach, Miss Nellie Cavinas, Mr. George
Price and Mr. TT. A. McCornack, of
Eugene. The College paper was well
"read by its editor, Mr. Frank Beach, and
-contained well written articles. The
exbition was a success.
Comx Back. Our old friend, Dr. O.
P. S. Plutnnicr, and , family, arrived ia
our city the first of the week, from Ros
burg, where they have been residing
during the winter. We are happy to
announce that the Doctor intends to re
main with us permanently, which will be
most welcome news to bis . numerous
friends in this city and Linn county.
He will still continue as Superintendent
of the telegraph line. As a "wire work
er" the Doctor has no .superior on the
An Additional Teacher. The at
tendance at the District School in this
city is so large that an additional teach
er is required, and the Directors have
selected Miss Annie Smith as such addi
tional teacher. The selection is a good
one. The new teacher euters upon her
duties on Monday. With such a corps
of teachers in our public school, parents
coct look for the rapid advancement of
their children in useful knowledge.
- New Aqxnt. Mr. WiltiamTbnrman
ia the new resident telegraphist in this
burg. He is a good operator besides be
ing a genial fellow.
Life Insurance. We have several
times adverted to the benefits of life
insurance. An event which recently
transpired shows the advantages of insur
ance, and puts the matter in a light
which will be readily comprehended by
all. Mr. C. P. Ferry, General Agent
for one of the Life Insurance companies,
ame to this city a tew days ago, to pay
to the widow of our late townsman, M.
W. Mack, the amount due her on the
life policy of her husband, amounting to
94,623. As Mr. Ferry passed through
Salem on his way to this city, he paid
over to the widow of J. G. Martin ex
actly the same amount . of money on a
similar policy. By a singular concidence
Mr. Mack and Mr. Martin insured their
lives at about the same time for the same
amount, and both died at about the same
time. The premium paid in each case
-was $376. Here arc benefits conferred,
by paying but a' small amount of money,
that can be understood and appreciated.
Our advice to all is, take out a policy.
Wo are insured.
Somebody Sold. A local item in the
Unionist informs us that the Capital En
gine Company, of Salem, had received
and accepted a challenge from Albany
Engine Company, to try the merits of
their respectivo machines. The Foreman
wishes us to say that the officers and
members of the Albany Fire Company
have never sent a challenge nor author
ized any one else to challenge the Salem
Fire Company, or any other company in
their name, for the simple reason that
they have no engine as yet, and grave
doubts as to their having one soon are
entertained. When the Company are
in possession of an engine, and have had
some drill in its use, a challenge might
be sent or accepted with some show of
propriety. At present our boys are not
Death. Again has death made h!s
eavaace in our community, and we
are compelled to chronicle the mournful
intell'gence of two deaths in one night
that of Mrs. Abbott, wife of the editor o
the Democrat, and Dr. Whitson, living
ia the vicinity of this city. Mrs. Abbott
had been lingering with the consumption
for months. She breathed her last on
Thursday morning. The funeral took
place on Friday. Mr. Abbott and family
have the sympathy of the community in
Liberality. Ia conversation tire
other day, some one suggested that as
Mr. Westfall, the gentleman whose leg
was broken in two places recently by a
kick from a horse, was a poor man with,
a family dependent on his labor for sup
port, something ought to be done to re
lieve :him from any embarrassment which
might result from a long confinement to
ih is bed. Acting on the hint. Mr. E. B.
iPurdom started with a subscription pa
iper, and soon had collected quite a little
un for the relief of the unfortunate
.man. When the money -was presented
by Mr. Purdom, Mr. Westfall was so
overcome with the unexpected kindness
-(hat he wept like a child. Such acts of
3iberalitj speak loudly in favor of a com
anaaiiy, and are never forgotten by the

Who wants to be where laughter is a sin,
and joking a crime?" It would be a qood
thing if dismal people died off early; bet

tenacity of life is something wonderful.
Such people rarely die. They are whif

spoke of some time since as intending to
go into the dairy business, has got fairly
to work, and is now making a superior
article of butter for table use. A speci
men of butter from his dairy, left at our
office, is as nice, yellow, solid, sweet but
ter as we ever saw in any country. Mr
Pike is at present making seventy pounds
of this kind of butter each week, and
will increase the amount as rapidly as
the demand requires. Pcoplo who want
good butter can get it of Mr. Pike.
S. S. Mayday Picnic. We are re
quested to state that those intending to

benefit of tho children, after which they
will be at liberty to choose their own
mode of passing the time. Mr. Fox, it
is understood, will take the swing out to
the grove for the amusement of the little
ones. It is expected that those who
want refreshments will bring them come
provided to "eat themselves 1" Should
the weather prove favorable, a happy
time may be -expected for the young
folks. "- - : .. '" " r -.
