ALBANY, OREGON. APRIL
0 laggard year, that lasts so long,
VV'Tien will thy leaden pinious rise,
And thou break into heaving skies,
And be a disiinprisotitcl song y
0 burst into the heaving spring !
And roll away these cold dark days:
Inspire vEolian notes of praise,
That long to thaw a fifteen wing.
Thou too are part of nature's truth,
And in thy mystery thou art good ;
Yet, roll from over Held and Hood,
And bring us Spring's eternal youth.
1 long for April's sweet sublime,
When earth recalls the ho-vers of eve
And angels in the night shall woave
The daintiest filigree of time.
When all the world shall answer God,
In living greenness to the eye,
Beneath an interflashlng sky,'
And o'er a daisy-quickened soil
When fragrant comes creation's breith
And nature is a choral mute ;
Life wakes and pulses (lash and
resurrection out of death.
That "amusing little cuss," the
trichina snndis, is now marching
on without impediment through the
bowels of the press and the muscu
lar tissues of the public. If all the
city and mail editors in the country,
says the St. Louis Globe, had , sold
pork short, or newly embraced Ju
daism, the zeal with which they are
warning their brother worms to
shun the flowing rasher, and advis
ing them that total abstinence from
Bologna is the only ark of safety
from dying the death of Herod, the
excitement on this subject could not
be greater. As is usually the case
with newspaper sensations, the fun
damental fact is hardly the equal of
the fuss made about it, and a few
words of sensible advice will not be
The subject naturally divides
itself into two parts. First, to avoid
trichina spiralis. There are two
ways of doing this a, to eat no
pone at all ; and , b, to eat none that
has not been sufficiently cooked. A
temperature of 106 degrees proves
fatal to the animal ; hence if meat
be properly boiled (which requires
that it le raised to 212 degrees), no
danger is to be apprehended.
Nearly all the reported cases were
attributable to eating pork hastily
prepared for the table.

Henaiue has been used in Europe in
those early stages, though not so
widely or with such general success
as to warrant the faculty in adopt
ing it as an infallible'curative. Af-
ter this, rest and careful nnrsirg are
all that are required. Where toe
pain is intense, anodynes may be
exhibited. Lime-water and milk,
in as large quantities as the patient
can drink, are recommended, with
a dilute solution of phosphoric acid,
sweetened with syrup. These not
only act as a strengthening tonic,
but promote the encysting of the
trichina by forming phosphate of
lime, in the blood.
Such is the simplest, and at the
same time, the most satisfactory
treatment which has as yet been
Tlie Portland Bulltin gives the
following discription of a new mo
tive power bearing the above namp,
th3 invention of Messrs. J. M. Sut
ton and Col. H. K; Leonard, of
Portland. Says the paper referred
to : On an elevated platform be
fore us was a driving wheel, about
12 inches in diameter, revolving at
a rapid rate. There was no impell
ing power visible. Quietly the
inventor unloosed a screw, drew
out a piece of wire, and the unseen
power was withdrawn the magic
wheel was still. Examination
showed that inserted in and forming
a portion of its outside surface were
several magnets, which in turn were
acted upon by powerful coils, two
of which are stationed on either
side, and so arranged as to give an
attractive and repulsive force to the
revolving wheel. A powerful bat
tery supplies the electric fluid,
which on being attached sets the
wheel in motion. The invention, it
it proves successful, promises to be
of incalculable benefit to the wor!d
at large, and a fortune to the in
ventor. The motive power has been
secured beyond a question, and the
only matter to be decided is the
volume of that power. The inven
tor has sanguine holies of success,
and has no doubt of its complete
running capacity. He proposes to
test it, in the course of a few weeks,
by endeavoring to run a screw pro
peller on the yacht Owl, which, it
it proves snccessful, will be as good
a test ns the inventor desires.

Last Summer two young men
named Winner and McNutt, of
Kansas city, obtained an insurance
policy tor 85,000 upon the life of
McNutt, from the Metropolitan In
surance Company. Having obtain
ed the policy they went to Wichita,
Kansas. Just before Cbcistans,
Winner came back to Kansas city
for the purpose, as appears, of find
ing a young man to be murdered,
whose body was to be palmed off
on tho insurance company as Mc
Nutt's. He visited Mrs. McNutt,
who had remained here and dis
closed the plot to her. A young
man named Seviers was induced to
accompany Winner to Vichita, on
promise of a job of work, and was
never seen alive after he arrived
there with Winner. He was taken,
according to McNutt's confession,
to the paint-shop used by the mur
derers, and there drugged with
laudanum. Cords were bound
tightly around his body, his cloth
ing saturated with kerosene. and
the shop was set on fire. His re
mains were found amid tlie hot em
bers of the' building, and were at
first supposed to be those of Mc
Nutt. His wife, however in whose
interest the policy was takpn out,
became frightened and confessed the

The Eugene City Journal say :
Large plantations of hops are being
set in various portions of the State
this spring. Several tracts have
been planted in this county where
they are found to do first rate. The
demand for roots has been so great
that dealers have been unable to
supply it. California planters have
written here tor them, as that State
has not been able to raise sufficient
plants for her own use. There are
thousands of acres in Lane county
which might bo made into the finest
hop yards in the country.
The Secretary of War has written
to the Governo of Montana, saying
that the proposed mining expedition
from a point in that Territory, al
luded to in circulars recently for
warded by General Custar to the
War Department, will not lie per
initted to move. The reason for
opposing it, is because of the grer '.
probability which would attend it
of seriously aggravating the Indian
troubles now in existence.
