A TRAGEDY--Two Men Killed.
K again becomes onr painful duty to
rcco;d another 1 those awfiil tragedies
which altvayi send a thrill of horror
Hke an electric shock djroligli a eom
mtiuity. On Saturday altcrnoou of
Inst week, a party of men were jrath--em)
at J!;i -U Head Saloon, on Ames'
Creek, near Sweet Home Valley in
this county, engaged .in a shooting
matoii for beef. Among the number
assembled were three brothers named
Shirts, and a man named Van Einer
6on. During tlie progress of the
match, a ijiiarrel between Emerson
and James Shifts grew out of the load
ing of a un, and the men proceeded
to fight it eut in the old style. In the
course of the melee, Shirts knocked or
Oirew Emerson down, jumping upon
Mm, and v;s giving him "Hail Coluin
1ia"with Instils. Thistlidn't seem to
suit Emerson, who drew a large knife
and commenced .rogging Shirts there
with. Shirts jumped up and ran,
when Emerson also arose, and ran
after him. A younger one of the
Shirts (ben threw n lock at Knierson.
who whirled around, and. Hi Shirts
being near him, he went for him,
tabbing him just over the left breast.
Hi then struck Emerson a blow wltlin
stick he held in his hand, witli sufH
cjent force to break his neck, unci kill
him almot instantly. In a few min
utes thereafter Hi also died, from the
wound inflicted by the j knife in .the
hands of Emerson. This seems to be
the facts in the ease as near as we
amid get at them. The younger
Shifts the one who threw lite roe! ,
at least was arrested and brought in; i
the city on Monday, We believe the
two men that were killed were unmar
ried. Joseph Shifts had a preliminary
examination before Judge Tandy, on
Monday, and was 'bound over in the
mini of $2,000 to answer at, the next
term of the Circuit Court, on charge
of manslaughter, the evidence not
thowing clearly whether the death of
Emerson, was the result of the blew
iflom the stick in the hands of Hi
Shirts, or from the fbrca of the roek
drown by Josepji Shirtn.
On Monday NfariT The 'members
at the Albany lirnss Hand secured a

the resilciice of Mr, Ilaiclit, some six
miles from the city, where they sere

- Resolutions Adopted.
At a meeting of tlie Farmers' Ex
cursion Part', held in Astoria hist Fri
day, the following preamble and reso
lutions were adopted:
Whereas, W, citizens of Linn
County, Oregon, have just completed
an examlnitPon ot the harbor and sur
roundings of Astoria, and are con
vinced beyond n reasonable doubt of
the following named facts; therefore.
llemilrori, That in our opinion there,,
are good harbor facilities for the larg
est class of sen-going vessels at Astoria.
l; ylrri!. That the depth ot water on
the Columbia River KaniM feet m the
lowest and 34 feet at high tide) is
sufficient to admit I lie largest and. more
profitable class of grain vessels.
AV.Ww', That trie eo-t per ton.
freight, on wheat or other commodities
from Astoria to Liverpool should not
be greater ; nan from San Francisco to
the same ..it.
7totrftwrf, 'Hint the rate of insurance
Iroin the (. oluinbia Uiver should not
he greater than from San Fra isco.
A, mlwd. That the true polity of the
wheat producers of Oregon shone, be,
and is. to place their grain at tide
water witliiu their own State borders.
1,'eMred. That the press of Oregon
be requested to publish these resolu
tions. Why Women 1'rorrnstlnntc.
If a man has a business appointment
be is very apt to take his hat and be
punctual in meeting the engagement.
If a woman says she will be at a
certain place at a certain time to at
!end to business matters it would be
dangerous for anyone to sit down and
wait till she came.
She' begins the day talking about
the matter. She wonders bow the
thing will be? Whether the other par
ty will forget the appointment!' What
she had better wear ? How she shall
comb her hair?
Finally, alter hurrying around for
two hours and getting half dressed,
sombodv calls hi to gossip awhile, and
slops until it is too late to attend to
business that day.
"Another day will do jusr as well,"
the woman says to herself, and so
perhaps a week passes before she
brl Jgs herself to attend to a little task
which when begun only requires fif
teen or twenty minutes time.
If men delay And put oil' from day
to day, it is not because they are both
er d about the many little things which
trouble wouicn, especially what they
1'ew incn ib-ess iiftciier tlmn once a
day, excepting Sundays, and that is
the reason why many men dread to
have Sunday come.
The elaborate combing, brushing,
twiMing, curling, brakliug, puffing,
crimping and whaling which keeps
women'! nnus over their heads at the
expense of their backs, for an hour or
two at a time. Is much simplified liyja
majority of men, who feel just as; wen
if they run then- lingers through their
hair ami cull it combed.
Such a "short entry" is even better
for the hair than the dally application!
Of dyes, pomades and sweet-scented
washes, with which fops and dandies
insult Iheir beads, and cultivate mild
ness. If women would invariably
make themselves presentable when
they get up in the morning, and not.
be in the habit of sllp-shoddlng it
around as long as there is no danger
of somebody calling in and Bitching
them in frizzled neat!, soiled dress
ami general untidy Cfliiilltloh, it would
not he such ftu eftort to keep a business
appoint meiit, (for like men they could
nut on their lints and go out without
further fuss-or delay. Mm (Mn.
