Ed. Register ; We are called upon to
behold the emblem of victory for the Cen
tennial year. Tlie Democratic .rooster Is
again nailed to tlie mast-head. The first
guu of the Centennial year is fired by tlie
State of Texas, 50,000 strong. . This b cer
tainly cause of rejoicing by our Democratic
friends, but not more so than when the
first gun was fired upon Fort Sumter, and
when Sumter fell with very great rejoicings,
and Beauregard, with his chivalry, drank
damnation to the Yankees, they imagined
tlie Independence of tlie Southern Confed
eracy was fairly established beyond dispute.
But not so, sir. Neither Is the centennial
election ot 1876 established. The next
terrible report comes down from Sweet
Home Valley all Democrats up there save
only eight souls, the same number, tliat
jvere saved from the flood. .Thank' God
for that. There Is always a seed of right
eous men left. The Democrat thinks tliat at
the next election they will do even better
titan this. What a glorious sweet little
place Sweet Home Valley Is all Democrats
save only eiglit souls!
The Democrat informs us that at the last
election Linn county gave 240 Democratic
majority. Now, Mr. Beoisteh, what was
tlie reason of such a majority P The trne
reason wis, the Republicans were divided,
and very many Republicans sUyed at home
and never went near the polls on election
day. There were at least 300 Republican
votes lost at the last election: : ' '
Republicans, you are called upon to be
preparing for the great events which are
before you. Attend your primaries. Let
every Republican attend who possbly can,
and elect for your delegates to the County
Convention good sound men, wlio will
select from among us a ticket that all Re
publicans can unite upon. What you at
tempt, do with all your might. Determi
nation Is omnipotent. Put on the fire of
resolution, and kindle a flame that nothing
but victory can extinguish.
FBOM oir
Iii traveling through tlie comity we find
many warm friends of the Register, which
is encouraging in tlie extreme. We occa
sionally come across an old chronic case of
sorehead, that like nothing we or any one
else can do. But this is not discouraging
in the least. We find Democrats as well
as Republicans taking the Register, and
nearl' all ot both parties speak in the high
est terms of the Register. We return our
thanks to the many frieuiis who have been
so kind to us on our canvassing tour cast
of town and of Lebanon.
We stopped one night with Mr Keebler,
living near Lebanon. He is one of the
jolly California boys, and made my stay a
most agreeable one. Long may he live,
and may the Register add to his happiness.
Next night wo stopped with Mr. W. R.
Jones of the Lebanon Hotel. If you
want a good, square meal, give him a call,
and you will get it.
ext time we put up with Mr. Leedy,
one of our patrons. He owns a large farm,
and has about 100 acres ready for wheat.
Next night we stopped with Mr. J. G
1) ii
i weii. uwie very near not Iinding a
stopping place that night, for we were
turned away from several honses before we
came to Mr. Powell's. We began to won
der at tlie hospitality of that region west of
wliere he lives. He is a splendid follow
and a Granger to the backbone. Every
thing about the house and farm shows taste
and thrift. We took dinner next day at
his brother's house, west of there, and
well "yum, yum, yum." Only an epi
cure like ourself could appreciate and do
justice to such a dinner as Mrs. Powell
and Miss McKiught got up. Thanks, la
dies. :, . , f
We have more to say, but space forbids.
Tlie following is an extract from a pri
vate letter from Jackson county, Missouri,
which is one of tlie ricliest and best counties
iu the State. , We complain of liard times
lierc, but we ought to be thankful that we
are in as good a country as . the laud ot
Webfoot. Jackson county is in the grass
hopper infected region, and : although tlie
laud is as rich and : fertile as any in the
United States, it is in a deplorable condi
tion at present. Read this and then grum
ble if you can :
There never has been a time since the
settlement ot this State, wlieit the want
and distress among tlie people has been so
great and general as at tlie present time.
The country was so. ccarce of corn; last
spring and no grass, no clover, no green
oats, wheat, rye, or anything else, aft be
ing eaten by the grasshoppers til! late iu
tlie-spring tliat most of ottr nconle were
compelled to sell their bogs, to people-of
more favored sections and their cattle were
driven to tlie prairies of Kansas and came
back In the fall poor.1 Tliere was no wlieat
to sell, or anything else, so lhat ea 'great
many have not paid tlieir taxes, and tliere
is very little here tliat will bring money. .
: There are very many here that are liope
lessly iu debt. I sometimes get discouraged
trying to form, for although we work hard
we cannot make any money. : I do not
owe anything, but it grinds me to have .to
work hard and .make no money. ' We have
so many tilings to contend with here, it
really looks discouraging to t'iriners. : We
sow and plant in tlie spring, and have such
flittering prospects- of a good crop, ami
then, perhaps, drouth sets lu and 'shortens
lh5 crop, and from tlie time tlie seed Is
put in tlie ground the insect - workl ; preys
upon It till it is harvested ; so tliat short
crops and almost entire failures arc of con
tinued occurrence. ; "; :'

they need prompt reinforcement. Renew
ed vigor is most speedily supplied through
the medicinal resources ol that class, Hos
teller's Stomach Bitters assuredly deserve
a preeminent place. Weakness, whether
constitutional or arising from disease or .
over fatigue, cannot be better compensated

ening cordial. Tlie enfeebled invalid, the
convalescent, and the aged, infirm., find
tliat it. is an unfailing source ot vigor and .
comfort. Its combined tonic and alterative
properties also coustitue it an invaluable
remedy for indigestion, weakness of the
organs of urination, constipation, torpidity
of the liver, and many other irregularities
and disabilities, and render it an invaluable
protection against malaria, as well as dis
orders of the strnmch and bowels, nich.

From the Lafayette Courier: . 'l'lie far
mers say that tlie stock lias but just com
menced to die, and tliat if this stormy
weather continues much longer that tlie
loss of stock will be enormous. There is
no strength In the grass now, and those,
who have used up tlieir feed cannot hope
to aave tlieir stock. Some one was count
ing up, the otlier day, the number of horses .
that have died in Chchalem alone, from '
different causes, this, winter, and they es
timated the lofs at no less than 50. This
will have a tendency to advance tlie pi ke,
of liorses; There seems to be quite a de
mand now, by those who have to hire, for'
teams to do tlie spring plowing. Many a
poor farmer Is praying that this stormy .
weather will uot continue nnioh ; longer.','
