The Rflioious Meetings That hay
been held in this eity nightly at the Court
Boose for several weeis past, hare been
and still ara producing good fruit In the
awakening and conversion of the uugodly,
and in the revival of christians generally.
The pastors of the several churches of tlie
city have taken their regular tarns in hav
ing charge of the meetings, with the excep
tion only of the pastor of the Episcopal
church. The meetings, whttb are held
every night except Sunday night are grow
ing In Interest and power. In addition to
the night meetings, neon-day prayer meet
ings are held dally on TTfrst street, In tl-e
boildtng next to Or. Lister's store. These
meetings are also well attended. A female
prayer meeting Is held dally at 2 o'clock
p. u.,8hd a yotHig folks' prayer meeting,
also held dally, at 9 o'clock r. M. At tlie
Court Ilouse each evening a short sermon
is preached, after which those who are
seeking rfltglou are invited to make it
known. The music is first rate, a piano
and organ accompanying the voices.
Camilla Urso. The advance agent of
the celebrated violinist, Camilla Urso, and
troupe, called on us Tuesday. The com
pany is desirous of giving a concert tn this
city, and will do so about the middle ot
next month, provided they are assnrl of
sufficient patronage to warrant their doing
it. Mr. Luer left a subscription paper at
Mr. Barr's music store, where all those de
sirous of seeing and hearing the celebrated
violinist can call and make such desire
manifest by subscribing for tickets. If a
sufficient number ot tickets are sold, then
we shall have the pleasure of hearintr the
troupe. Arrangements will be made,
should the troupe decide to come, for a boat
to briirg down and return the Corvallis
people, thus enabling the lovers of music
in that city to enjoy the least with us. We
suppose there will be no difficulty in secur
ing the necessary subscrlption,as our people
dearly lore first class music such as this
troupe affords.
Siterrill's Iron Cultivator and
Seeder Is probably the best machine offer
ed farmers for the work it is intended to
do. It is simple, strong, and being con
structed of the best material, all the . im
portant parts being of iron, It ts very dura
ble and calculated to be almost indestructi
ble with anything like reasonable handling.
It can be adjusted to any required depth
while in motien, never clogs or chokes on
stftbble or "trashy" ground, and will sow
all kinds of grain, whether the grain be
wet or dry. . Every machine Is warranted.
Added to all thi., the machine was Invent
ed by the builder, Mr. James Sherrill, an
old resident ot Linn county, who builds
them at Ilairisbufg, By patronizing him
you not only get the best, but the money
yon pay for the machine remains In Ore
gon, in Linn county, and aids in building
up the county. Rend the advertisement in
this Issue. -
Ffll From the Tradj. A young man

breaking his right arm. Tfo was taken
with a feeling or faintness and stepped out
on to the platform for air, when a sudden
lurch threw liim from the car. He is a
member of the I.O.O.F., and as soon as
this fact was made known- the order had
him conveyed to this city where he will re
ceive all the necessary attention. -
