this city yesterday, on their way to their
uew home In Los Angeles county, Califor

Madam Demoeest Ecmpsed. A lady

fashionable dress maker In Salem, some two
weeks ago, -wanting to know how she
should make a new fall suit. The lady
was sick wbeu this letter was received, and
her husband answered H for ber'.X Ptrteps'

After explaining why his "better hall" did
not , write, , he ;says:, ?"5"ouask how you
shall make your . new dress and I will
answer to the best of ray -ability. - u the
first place I don't, think a basque quite
proper at this season, just as the stormy and
cloudy weather is about to set in, lor the
reason that 'basking' is done in the sun
shine. And as regards red-herring goats,
they are not in style at all, they went out
on the down train night before last. Over-
skirts are only worn in place of a water
proof, v Plain waists are very much in
vogue everywhere. - -It is quite plain there
is a great waste whatever the garment.
They are built gearing in the rear breadth,
with a gather or two in the south gusset.
besides now and then a bias sprinkled in to
relieve the sameness, the whole beautiful
ly draped to resemble a shanghai pullet
sheddine her featbeis. Some think that a
flounce under the left arm is quite proper,
but I don't agree with them; it's too com
mon. Should there be any cliange this Fall
I will telegraph. I am determined to keep
at the head of fashions If I have to stay
away from class meeting to do it."

that was the first article, her mother had
purchased when site , was t married, and

Saturday, October M.
Bad Management. There was a tre
mendous rush of people from this city last
Thursday morning for the State Fair. Such
jam we never saw, Instead of five coaches
as promised, tlie nUlroad ofScials dLplayed
their, usnal sicosaaaodating (?) spirit
toward tb7 people- that generously donated
to the road $50,000, by furnioblng one oonch
in which to carry, three or tour hundred
people, a very large : proportion of whom
were ladles. It is true there were several
cattle ears that went to make up the train,
but the tickets sold called for first class cars.
AH the " cars were filled ", to overflowing.
and ' many were' compelled .to stand up
as there was neither room , or seats upon
which to sit, . . .and . were , knocked and
bumped about, by the motion of the cars
until they were almost exhausted. - Upon
returning in-the evening, '. an additional
coach had been added. Upon tbe arrival of
tbe train at the platform opposite tbe Fair
Grounds, the rush for places in the coaches
was grand and thereupon ensued such a
squeeze as we have not seen for many a
day. This was the opportune moment for
tlie light fingered gentry, and the cry was
raised, look out for "pickpockets." How
ever, so far as we were able to learn, but one
of our citizens lost any large sum. The
incapacity of tbe present railroad manage
ment, at least of tbe O. & C. R. B., is
marked, and the sooner it is placed in the
hands of competent persons, who have at
least a spark of decency in their make
up, tbe sooner will be allayed the bitter
hate of our people towards railroad monop
olies. The people of Albany will .not sub
mit themselves to be thus degraded by be
ing forced to take passage in a stock car
after paying for tickets, for first class
coaches. This is tbe second time that our
citizens have been grossly insulted by this
one-horse railroad company.
Sebiocslt HinBT. Thbe. Bradley, of
Portland, was seriously hurt last Thursday
evening by jumping from tlie train when
in motion, at tbe crossing ot the Lake La-
Blsh road, near the Fairgrounds. He was
picked hp senseless. The right side of his
lace is smashed fearfully and it is feared
that his skull is cracked. . .
Since tlie a Dove was in type, a rumor
lias reached us that he died last evening
from toe enects ot nis injuries, .
The Benton Democrat says: "Tne contest
of the fire engines for tbe silver trumpet
which was to have occured on Friday, was
left entirely to tlie Albany boys, - as there
was no one there to compete with them for

arrivals, while many; caiapers stQI arrive

showmen, hackmen, patent medicine men,

ed. Oregon and Tallant being rick and

race being decided a dead heat. After tbe
usual rest, the horses were again turned
loose, and a beautiful race was bajl to the
home-stretch when Oregon showed his
"heels" to Valiant, winning the trace by
about three lengths. Time, 2:02 aid 2:3).
Tbe second race was trotting foi Oregon

premium $100; second premium, $50;
third premium to save stakes Three
horses were entered, but only two started
B. B. Acker entered Bine Mountain Boy,
and J. J. Welsh, Mollie Welsh. ! The race
was not at all exciting, as tbe horse broke
badly and Mollie came home firsf in both
heats, making the extraordinary (?) time
of 2.57 and 2:57 - 5 j.
ACCIDENTS. . j'
A number of accidents occurred yester

the death of a baby. From what we could

while a great many are sitting oWa the

"laid upon tlie shelf," and as they have no
