Manufactured and sold for the Tery low- price oi
THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to the special
notice of erery farmer. It possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows bow in nse. The
wheels are four feet in diameter, and ran on the
nnplowed land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be used in making any alteration. The supe
riority of the "Gay' Plow will be clearly shown
by the following wwrtUieate t"' v. ; ...
the undersigned, citisens of Linn county,
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms the "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the
same has given as entire satisfaction. Its facility
fur adjusting to suit the depj of furrow without
moving from the seat, .is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because the same is
brought to bear directly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the carriage ; also, because it is strong
and durable, all except the wood-work being con-
siruuteu oi wrougm iron no castings are used.
The wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over other iranir-Dlows. in striking oft"
land and in plowing, not having to make the nec
essary changes in the machinery, and the seat is
always level, not throwing the driver forward or
sideways as in other plows.. Better work and
more of it ean be accomplished by the use of this
flow man Dy nana.
We take pleasure in recommending the "Gat"
Plow to our brother farmers, as one having no
superior in Oregon.

IN presenting the claims of this NEW KNIT
- TING MACHINE to popular faror. we aim
at no more than a brief and candid statement of
its actual merits. We confidently claim that tbe
CLIMAX KNITTER is superior to all other ma
chines in the follwing respects :
1. Simplicity of construction and operation.
S. Completeness and excellence of work.
3. Convenience of shape, size and weight of
machine. . v:,'
4. Durability of machine. .. '
. 6. Rapidity of work.
. Cheapness. 1 ... . . ...
.It is so simple In its eoastructioa and in its
workings, that less than half tbe time is required
to leant to knit on it than on others. " With it the
children of the household ean do all the knitting.
It is made entirely of iron and steel. A manTs
sock can be. made in thirty minute. ' It makes
the regular old old-fashioned knitting needle
stitch or loop, (with several others . i desired) ;
turns the heel, making It of as good shape as by
band, without any sewing; narrows or widens,
at the pleasure of tbe operator, and makes a per
fect toe. Any article that ean be knit by band,
ean be manufactured on this machine.
Persons bo wish to see tbe machine to opera
tion, are requested to call on the agent in this city.

A Tavern Story.
The scene of the following story ia
located in the mountain! of Virginia ;
time, fifteen years ago : . "7
We soon succeeded in fiaishing a very
substantial supper, and, as we Bat around
a blazing fire, each one with a cigar in
his mouth, ruminatiag on the storm with
out and the solid, warm comfort, within,
it was proposed that, to shorten time,
each one should relate some event in his
life, either serious or comic, as he best
saw fit. :
-'Besides bur own party, consisting of
six, tnere was an unknown person wbo
had intruded himself upon us, but of
whom we took no notice until it came to
the time of Lsrkey Hughes to tell his
Story. - . ?r-UsJ:;
iJarkey was a tall, gaunt, lantern-jawed
specimen, hailing from "down East, "who
had remained perfectly silent while tbe
rest of us were telling our stones, bis
chief occupation seemed to be trying to
discover who the stranger was.
Before commencing his story, he went
to the door and locked it, putting the
key in his coat pocket ; and then apolo
gising for his strange conduct, but prom
ising to explain it satisfactorily before he
finished his story, he commenced :
"Three years ago, gentlemen, I had
occasion to travel over these mountains
on business, and as I had te journey away
from tbe stsge roads, I pursued my way
on horseback, with a small valise strapped
on the back of my saddle, ia which I had
a good sum of money for those days.
"It was an evening very much like
this, in this same month-, that I stopped
at this same house to escape the storm.
"Ihe landlord was extremely obsequi
ous in attending to my wants, and after
our smoke, after supper, he requested
me to join him in drinking a' bottle of
wine.-tt i t.. i --?'; i ? .M-i-wi; ;;;'-:-".a ;
"Being a belated traveler, and nothing
loth, I readily consented ; and very soon
we bad succeeded in disposing ot six
bottles in place of one. '
"As might be expected, after taking
so much wine, I became very talkative ;
and my host soon knew as much, of my
business auairs as 1 did myself. And.
of eourse, among other facts, he became
aware that roy small valise, contained a
large sum of money, r i: . .. .
iuy host kindly volunteered to take
care ot my, pagge, if. I would leave it
with him ; but, although I had taken too
much wine, still I , knew enough, to de
cline his magnanimous offer- .: And wish
ing him good night, I took my valise in
hand and went to my appointed room., ,
, "I had taken enough , of the wine to
make me feel very nervous; so that I
found it difficult to compose myself, and
my feelings were not at all unproved by
the impreseion.,1 received from my host.
"He was an Italian, and had that
foreboding look of a desperate character:
and the beauty of his face was not at all
improved by a long scar across his right
temple ; the .thumb of his right hand
was gone also ; so that his general Ap
pearance was not, to say the least, at all
prepossessing ; he looked-as if he would
as soon commit a murder as smoke a cigar.
, "After I had undressed, I placed my
valise and pistol under my pillow; And
then, having carefully, as I thought, ex
amined every nook and corner . of the
room, to see that there was: no danger of
intrusion, X bud myself down, but I could
not sleep; the wine, instead of having a
narootie effect, . produced the contrary,
and the recollections of my host had put
my Diooa to rover neat.
"I must have been lying in this troubled
fstate for several hours, when I was sure I
heard , some, noise apparently under . my
bed, or under the floor neat my bed.
' "At first I thought it was the result of
my feverish brain ; but, after collecting
my scattered senses, and calmly thinking
a few moments. I felt convinced tl.at I
did hear a'noise of some kind.. . And so,
taking my pistol from, under my pillow,.
I quietly cocked it under the clothes, bo
as te make no noise ; and then, lying on
my back, -with my Tight arm. streteaed
out to its full length, and the pistol firm
ly grasped irr-my hand, awaited any re
" The noise now became more distinct,
and I could plainly hear some one draw
back a bolt.' I quietly turned my eyes
towards the door, to see if any move was
made tnere ; but Hardly bad I turned ay
head, when I was sure that I saw the
rug in front ot the fireplace move. : ;
"In an instant I saw a trapdoor, which
had been most'eririeasly concealed by,
ift Vl.1 J . l it l T. ir L' . ;....
- t w..ijpMMwwssgi ssiiastgi r, wvi
a dark lantern partially, opened. jA, .
"I held my breath until he got i nto
tho room and began te look around when
I saw, by the light of his lantern, that he
also had a desperate looking knife in his
hand, and, knowing that X would be the
object of his butchery,: I carefully , lifted
my hand from under the covering, as his
back was turned partially towards me, and
fired. : "vV
'"The instant I fired, the scoundrel
fell, i-i jumped up, put on cay elethes,
ami, after-taking a quick look at the
body, to see whether I had killed hira
or not, I took: his lantern and left the
nouse. si--,-- . -..i:i:-s;n w;. -
"I thought I had killed him, as the
mark of my bullet was to be seen on the
left side of his head; ifhad torn off" tho
lower part of his ear; but when I returned
the next morning,' there was Bogtrace of
tbe villain. ..... ,.;. r.i;, .
"Did you ever hear of him since?"
asked one of the party.
"No, gentlemen, I never saw him since
until to-night." . , , - - . .
As . Larkey ! said , this, the ' intruder,
whom we had - not noticed until now.
jumped up, and, making a bound toward
him, shrieked t ...... . . s. ".. -r;;-'
: "You lie 1", ; , - '
We caught him,' and,' after overpower
ing him, found the indontical scars that
Larkey had mentioned the sabre scar,
lfiae tblimK anil 111. nlinnml Mr ' . .
We beld a council as to wbateourse.it
was .best pursue; and ' determined to let
Larkey wreak his vengeance on him in
any manner he saw fit We notified, him
that he had but a few hours to live, and .
if he wanted to make any confession we
would take it. . v
Believing our threatst he confessed to
rib less than seten murders, and told as
Where to find the skeletons of his victims,
all of whom had been murdered in that
. xtsrj .'-'." ,;- :"
We followed his directions, and did
find the skeletons. . '
We turned him over to the proper au
thorities the next day,xwith his written .
confession, and kept on our journey; and,
about a month afterward, I read a long
