The iC. Y. Herald says new potatoes are
fine ''and cut pompadour." Another vil
lainous inkslinger says : "yes,- partaters
ahvuz had a 'eye' to fashion !" Itcertainly
is a fact that last year they wore Murphy
jackets and were dressed in various styles !
Last Monday, School Director, David
Thompson, called at eacli of the several
public schools, and made a speech to the
scholars at each place. Our new Board of
School Directors are giving more attention
to school matters than any board we have
ever had, and they deserve credit therefor.
Directors to Elect. There will be a
meeting of the stockholders in the Grange
Union of Albany, at their office in this city,
on Monday, May 28th, to elect seven direc
tors to serve the Union one year. And
don't you forget it. , -
Prince Williams, ot Piuss-ia, is hard up
again. Taking pity on his extremity, gen
erous hearted Victoria, England's Queen,
lias just given him an order for a Garter.
It is cxp'-ftcd that the Empress Eugenie
will also ante up with a pass to the circus
and a paper ol hair-pins. .
We forgot to mention the entertainment
given by the public schools two weeks ago,
at the Court House, but it was a way up
entertainment nevertheless, and the build
ing was crowded to its utmost capacity by
an appreciative audience. The entertain
ment was certainly a credit to teachers and
Elocution. One of the most thoroughly
enjoyable entertainments given in this city
which we have had the pleasure of attend
ing for many a day, was that given by
Prof. lAT. Henderson, at the College
Chapel on Saturday evening last. The
Professor Was assisted by some of the Very
best talent in the eity Mioses Mary Pow-
ell, Ilettie Miller, Fannie Strahan, Ianra
Tate, Hettie Thompson and Maggie Foster.
As an elocutionist Prof. Henderson has
few superiors, and any entertainment in
which he takes a part, is certain to be a
success. '"The Bells" recitation by the
Professor Was the most perfect piece of elo
cution we ever heard but why particular
ize, when eacb and every piece was a gem !
The Professor should never tail to have a
full house iu this city. Each one of the
Prof's, assistants vied with each other In
the excellence of their productions. "The
Red Jacket," by Miss Mary Powell, was
spoken with such effect as to bring tears to
many eyes, while Miss Hettie Miller's
"Bridal Pledge," was magnificently ren
dered indeed. The instrumental solos by
Mises Laura Tate and Fannie Strahan,
and the duett by Misses Thompson and
Foster, were excellently weir rendered. It
was certainly the finest intellectual treat
our people have been permitted to enjoy
for a long time. Give us more of such ele
vating and entertaining tieats. ;
Insane. Sheriff Herren took to the asy
lum at East Portland on Monday an insane
person named Mrs. Elizabeth Williams,
who has been residing of late at Sweet
Home. Mrs. Williams went to the asylum
from this county about eighteen months
agj, slaying some six months before being
pronounced cured. Mie is aDout do years
of age, and is the mother of four living
- m '
Pond's Extract. The great family
medicine of the age differs from all adver
tised preparations, in the fact that it is a
standard medicine of recognized merit, and
has for many years been treated of in med
ical writings. It has been the chief , reli
ance of thousands of families for all the
minor ailments, accidents of casualties that
have occurred among them. As an allevU
dtor of pain and a promoter of permanent
cure it has no equal.- Ask your druggist
about it. .-: - -v.". ;"f ;
An English scientist lias discovered that
music will increase the growth of plants.
"Jane, rush that piano now and waltz those
cabbages so that they shall be ready for
market by to-morrow. And Johnny, take
the bass drum to the corner lot and drum
up those onions. Think, too, that by
music played over the telephone we carr
from this city solo a dead beat into life
either in Portland or 'Frisco ! For this
last Idea patent applied for. J ;

IJelp those who try to help Tn em-
selves. Mrs. Day is prepared to do all
kinds of plain sewing, and as she has only
her labor to depend upon tor a livelihood
and for the support of her children, she
asks the kind people of this city' who may
have work which they wish done to give
her a trial. Tbia is a case which should
Interest all our benevolent disposed citizens.
Let any who have work uf this kind which
they wish done take it to Mrs. Day. .
Drowned. Between eight and ninef
o'clock last Saturday night Conrad Hilder
brant and Mr. Kelley were wending their
way to the residence of the latter, which is
on what is called the island, a few rod's
north of Magnolia Mills. In attempting to
eross the mill-race over the bridge on
Washington street, north of the St. Charles
Hotel, both parties missed the bridge and
fell into the race. The race is planked op
from the bottom to the top, and the water
is about ten feet deep,- and is an exceeding
ly hard place to get out ot, especially when
the night is exceedingly dark and the par
ties remarkably luli, as on the occasion In
question. By great good fortune Kelley
succeeded in catching hold, with the tips
of his fingered of a hole in the planking
where he held on with a death grip, calling
loudly the while for help. Hilderbrant
was not so eiuwsfifiit. hut-. lon whot ha
could, as appears from Kelley's Btiiteraen'y
to keep up by catching hold of some drift
wood ; but he soon became exhausted, ap
parently, for, iu answer to some words ot
cheer from Kelley, he said, "it's all day
with me," and as Kelley heard no more ot
him, it is supposed he sank then and there.
The two men had been in the water nearly
an hour before relief came. Kelley was1
pulled out pretty well exhausted frorrr his
long soaking In the water. Hilderbrant
was foud by Mr. Stratford, after dragging
the race with a pike-pole for some time,
and was taken out. Deceased was a native
of Germany, aged 55 years, a cooper by
trade, and had been in the employ of Chris.
Ilouck for a long time. About the only
fault deceased had was that whenever in
funds lie would invariably indulge in a
"bust." Deceased was buried on Sunday
afternoon, a large concourse attending the'
funeral. Peace to Ms manes.
Election. The election for Chief and'
Assistant Chief of the Albany Fire Depart
ment takes place on the first Monday (7thy
in May next. Saturday evening, April
2Sth, Linn Engine Company No. 2 meets
to nominate candidates tor the places. W
are not advised as to the action of One's,-
but suppose a ticket will be placed in nom--ination
by that Company. Should both'
Companies nnite on the same candidate the"
election will not be unusually interesting ;f
but should both Companies have candidates
in the field then look ont fof barrels of fun
The polls will be held at Two's house,
