OFrlCIAL CITY PAPER.
ALBANY, OREGON', APRIL 13, 1S77.
SaooL Meetix't. The annual district
school meeting tor district No. 5 (the dis
trict embracing Albany) was held at the
Central school house on Monday night last.
There was not a large attendance in fact
the attendance was very small considering
the Importance of the occasion. The School
Clerk, Mr. J. J. Whitney, elected to fill
the vacancy caused by the death ot Mr. A.
X. Arnold, made his report. From it we
learn tliat tlie district is indebted in the
sumof$76( 07. To meet this indebtedness
there is $30 40 cash in the treasury, with
notes and .outstanding biil3 tor tuition
amounting to $1,672 45. Of this latter
It istjihght that at the very outide not
Sore than $G0O will ever he realized.
From the shape in which Mr. Whitney
found the books of the deceased Clerk It
was impossible to get at the exact situation
ot affairs. It is certain that the money be
longing to the district was handled very
carelessly during a portion of last year.
While it is believed by some that Mr. Arn
old's accounts will not hold out by from
$500 to $1,000 or even more, there seems
to be no positive evidence that such is the
case. The books and papers of the school
district were in a terrible muddle, and so
far, with the known business ability of the
.Directors, -ierK, anu me t-everai aiiuuui-
niitrlmliaw tieen called in to examine
and aid in unraveling them, they still re
main a sealed mystery. With the $4,000
tax levy of last year collected, and the usu
al school bills properly collected, the .Dis
trict ought to have money m the treasury,
tlie outgoing Clerk was referred to the Di
rectors and new Clerk for examination, to
be reported upon at a luture meeting. If
the facts in relation to the tax of last year
(amounting, we believe, to 4.190), can ever
be got at that is, if any clue can be ob
tained as to who paid the taxes and how
much was "collected, and who paid school
hills, it may be tound that all tl;e tax
($4,000) was not collected by the deceased
Cifcrk. and that, therefore, the District is
no out so much a now appears. The Di
rectors have taken hold of the matter in
earnest, and will sift the whole matter to
the bottom. In the meantime the Direc
tors have employed five teachers, three
males and two females, at a monthly salary
of $350, for a term of three months.
Bulldozed 'em, There are thousands
of wild geese on the prairies, and they do
more or less damage, in pulling up and get
ting away with the early crops. It is re
lated of tne early times in this valley that,
in he Spring months, the prairies were
literally covered with water fowl. Count
less millions of goee, brants, ducks, etc.,
covered the country in every direction, and
it was almost Impossible for the early pio
neers'to raise any" crops on account of their
prevalence and destmetivenes. But what
we intended to say was this: A young
farmer, stilt in his teens, living a few miles
trom this city, had tried in vain to get close
enough to the geese in the fields on his
father's farm to shoot them they were en
tireito wary for him, and would fly be
fore be could get within good shooting dis
tance. As a last resort he repaired to the
i bam and taking a dry bull's hide hanging
there, wrapped himself up mit as well a
he could, concealing as nieeh ot his person
- as possible, and proceeded to the fields
where the geese were wont to congregate
i -t feed. Arriving at the field he proceeded
to "bulldoze" ihose geese by getting down
on his hands and knees and personating an
he bovine ; and those geese didn't Ciscover
the fraud until he had got right in among
'em and let fly with both barrels, slaughter-
. I ng them right and left. And now when
ever he wants a goose he dons the bull's
hide and hies to the fields.
"Honor Biugiit." In the Register for
March 30tli, we wrote : "Quite a number
of farmers and others who stored wheat with
Parker & Morris last fall and had not sold
It, came into the city on Wednesday to see
and consult over Parker's failure." Mr.
Morris, of Parker & Morris, informs as that
there was not a pound of wheat taken away
from the warehouse that had not been pre
viously purchased. The wheat that; had
not been purcliased still remains it? the
warehouse. We make this correction be
cause it oossible that our first statement
v,,. ii many Into the Deiiet tn
rarfcer & Morn bad 5?U wheat that did
not belong to them, hut stored in the
warehouse. The failure of tiiC fi-m wa3
caused by their lo3 on wiieafc tlie firm
have lost more - or less money for three
years, until the liabilities amount to about
f 10,000 at the present time. " "
Clean Up. By order of the Ctty Coun
cil, made at its regular meeting on Tues
Jaj night, property-holders are required to
Aean up their alleys and back yards by tlie
Jath of May next ; if not dona by that titne
$h Marshal U instructed to have the work
done at the expense of the property adja
cent. Owners of real, estate in this city
should attend to this matter, riot only be
cause it is ordered done by the Couicil, but
because tlie health of the city demands it.
Some of the alleys and back yards in the
' city are in a fearful condition, -arid if left aa
they are at presentduring the coming Siitn-
incr, will breed -death in every direction.
Clean up and save tlie health not only of
jour own families, but tlie health ot the
entire section in which you live.
2f ice Beef. On Tuesday Mr. J. L. liar
ris butcliered one of tlie nicest beeves we
have had in market for many a day.; It was
a six year old steer which bad been stall fed
for four months, and when butchered it
weighed abotit nine hundred pounds. : It
was a nice one, and no mistake. The ani
mal was raised by Mr. Moore,, ovw hi the
Forks of the Smtianj.
I Home, April 7th, 1877.
Mr. Editor : Up to the present, 1
o'clock Saturday, we have put in a faithful
week at the plow, and the present welcome
shower gives opportunity to scribble tliese
We liave so perfected the drainage here
as to plow the wettest land on ouc place,
the past week, and it was in good order.
Considerable sowing has already been done
about here. The fail plowing is nut in
good order, by first ruuning over it, the
way it was plowed, with a Moline Culti
vator, which runs 5 to 6 inches deep, then
cross it with the pulverizing harrow, better
known as the McDonald Cultivator, which
works like a charm. Then we have con
cluded that to make the outfit of machinery
complete we should have the combined har
row and clod masher of Kuhn & Miller,
to follow the pulverizer, and our fields
would look like they had received proper
cultivation. And we feel certain that this
kind of farming will reward all who give
it a trial.
Everybody in this vicinity is becoming
interested in the Ditch transportation, and
we think it is bound to succeed. We find
Mr. John Crawford manifests quite a gen
erous disposition respecting it, should the
property remain in his hands. Yotn-s,
J. M. MARKS.
Xice Storekoom. The new brick on
the corner ot Ferry and Second streets
owned by Mr. Sam'l. Miller, is completed
and ready for occupancy. It is a two-story,
25x55 feet. The lront room up stairs will
b? occupied by Humphrey fc Howett,. as a
law olliee; the two rooms in the rear will
be occupied by the Young People's Chris
tian Association. The first floor, a room
twenty-five wide by fifty-five feet deep, 14
feet ceiling, with a fine glass front, is not
rented as yet. It is one of the finest store
rooms in the city, and shouldn't go long
without a renter.

Encouragement for Hie Feeble.
- Dcbilitjs whether it be inherent, or
caused by overtaxed strength, or protracted
illness, has a most depressing influence up
on the mind, breeding an abject melancholy
nearly akin to despair, ntxl enforcing the
abandonment of cherished projects and
high hopes. Happily, the enfeebled sys
tem, even in extreme cases, is susceptible
of Invigoratlori. it. is proved by incontro
vertible evidence that Ilnstetter's Stomach
Bitters is an unfailing sf rengthener.of the
weak, and that in addition to vitalizing the
physical organization, it establishes regu
larity among those organs upon whose ef
ficient discharge of the duties imposed on
them by nature, continued vigorand health
depend. Thousands of instances might be
cited to show the regenerating influence of
this Iiealth-giving agent in cases of debility,
liver disease, dyspepsia, nervous ailments,
constipation, intermittent fever, urinary
and uterine troubles, gout and rheumatism,
and other maladies. april

This being the case, it was urged that a tax

From a letter dated Macomb, Illinois,
March 23d, 1877, we cull as follows, merely
premising that the writer of the letter spent
nearly a year in Oregon : 'I had a very
pleasant time all the way from your city
to my journey's end so far as the weather
and accommodations were concerned. Saw
very little snow in the mountains,- and had
no very bad weather. On Arriving
at Monmouth, 111., found by investigation
that March had "come in like a lion," and
was still lurking around the streets, being
very rough and plenty of snov? on the
ground, with more coming down. Ar
rived home (at Macomb) af 7 p. m., March
17th, aud found all well. Then came the
tng ol War to fell what I know regarding
Oregon. Vrell, t always gave them the
best I had in the shop, and, I think, noth
ing to Oregon's discredit. Went to
my farm on horseback, Monday ; roads
very good. Next day we had rain, sleet,
and a general freeze out (thought Lyle
would have enjoyed a chance at it). "Next
day it thawed .out; last night it froze up
again, and to-day at noon it commenced
snowing, snowing, and to-night would be
good sleighing, so you see I have a chance
to see some Illinois winter weather. N ice !
