Vinegar Works. At the upper
end of Kirst street, in ehe proximity
to Magnolia Flouring Mills, in a two
story frame building. Mr. W, J. llil- ,
tabidel, something over a year ago. j
commenced the tBauuJaeturc ot pure 1
eitlur vinegar. By a close study and j
strict adherence to known facts in the ,
science of chemistry, and aided by j
what Mr. II. calls an neetiiier." an
invention ofhis own, requiring months
of study, he has succeeded In making
U fine an article ot pore cider vinegar ;
as was ever manufactured ; and when
8 say pure cider vinegar, we mean
an article that is made from the Juice
of the apple, without the aid ot any
drug wliatever. There are a thousand
gallons or more ot splendid vinegar at
the factory now ready for market, and
from ten to fifteen thousand gallons of
eider almost ready for "business." As ;
this is a home enterprise, we hojie oar
eitizeus will extend to it a lilieral pat- j
ronage, as we are satisfied they can
not get a better article, and the price
is the same at which inferior articles ;
are sold ; and by patronizing a home
institution they retain an continue In
circulation in our midst that amount of
money that would otherwise go to
foster some bloated outside monopoly, i
Contradicted. Tlie paragraph
printed in the Register last week, to
tlie effect that the demand for wheat in
San Francisco was greater than the
supply, and that an early and consid
erable advance in tlie price might
be expected In consequence, is all
knocked hi tlie bead by a Portland
paper, which pronounces tlie item
"bosh," unreliable, etc. It was ul-
ways thus. Some people can't bear to
see others happy. Naturally of a
cross-grained disposition, tliey delight j
in nothing more than to make other
K.-oplc miserable. "There never was j
a rose without its thorn," as Smeltzer j
used to say. We only wish the con-1
trary kus has invested all his surplus
change in a bet on Missouri, even up j
A Chance. Any lady securing
fifty subscribers for the REGISTER,

office, will receive for tier trouble a
splendid "Victor" Sewing Machine for
her trouble. The machine
will be '
delivered to her at this office, or care
fully packed and shipped to any ad- '
dress she may select. The Finkle &
Lyon Victor sewing machine is one of j
the very best manufactured. For forty
subscribers a Home Shuttle machine
will be given. Any lady wishing to i
earn a sewing jitndiirie on such easy
terms, by applying to this office, will

charge. Here is a chance to get a
u-efnl and ornamental article with
very little trouble.

the whole premises being deluged with
water. It is estimated that the repairs
j to that building will cost between livt
j and six hundred dollars.
Aimthtr On Tuesday evening our
citizens were startled by the cry of
" fire ! " The alarm was caused from
the breaking or explosion of a coal oil
lamp in the kitchen ot the St. Charles
Hotel. No great damage was sustain
ed, we believe, beyound a big scare.
Edith O'Qorman. This lady lec
tured at Parrish Hall in this city, on
Monday and Tuesday evenings,-to full
houses. She is one of the best wo
men orators we ever listened to. She
claims to have been a Sister ot Charity,
to have lived in a nunnerv for several
years, and is therefore fully competent
to tell of the inner workings of such
institutions. So far as her experience
goes, she seems to have "'soured " on
Catholicism, and wherever she goes,
she makes Rome howl " by the "re
flections " she casts upon nunneries,
etc., under Catholic rule. She lectur-

SCARCITY OF Feed. From state
ments made to the Statesman, and from
other quarters, it is believed there is a
great scarcity of feed for cattle all
through Eastern Oregon. Snow is re
ported as having fallen ill Oeli.co

weather is unusually cold and grass
short. If these reports prove true,
and the winter prove a bard one. the
cattle interest will suffer very largely.
We hope for the best.

From Fish Lake. Mr. Bart.
