For Sale Cheap. At tits shop on Ferry
street, Mr. SamJ Miller l-as a twelve pas
senger coach for sale, almost new will be '
sold at a bargain; Also a splendid end and i
side spring hack, with elegant top, etc., j
new, lor sale at cost. Here's an opportu
nity for somebody to get bargains. 24-9
clias- 5Iealey. Esq., who lives near Moss j
Butte, out on . the Santlam . wngon road,-
came in on Monday. Charley had just
came in from the Silver Springs, and Ins
opinion is that it is the richest country ever
struck on the coast.
A range that meets every fequtrefnent
and satisfies every demand made upon it
he Richmond Range. It has no equal '
among stoves or ranges. The only place ,
to get one is at W. II. McFarland's, next 1
to the Bank. i
Judge F. M. Miller and wife left us the
fli-st of the week for Lebanon, whei-e they
will take up their residence for the future.
The Jndge will take charge of the Semi
nary there and will also practice lav should
TIat-sey. There has been a ereat calm
tn this vicinity since the lectureat the Lake
UreeK scrooi-nousc. x ue turscipu
came relaxed so that all hands could take i
in more than the usual quantity of tlie at- I
mosphere, was the cause of it ; but we look
for a storm soon.
Temper ance. W . R. Dunbar, G. W.
T., will lecture on the subject of temper
ance to the people in the vicinity of Knox's
Butte, on Wednesday evening, April 25th;
I at Tangent on Thursday evening, i April
iCth. ami at TTarrisbnrff. ADril 27th. Dun"
bar is an exceedingly interesting lecturer
even on as dry a subject as temperance, and
those who don't go to hear him will miss a
treat. Everybody's invited.
Mr, Dowell, who came in from the placer
diggings in Josephine and Jackson Coun
ties, Southern Oregon, a few days ago,
brought in a handful or so of nuggets of
pure goki. me omy urawoacit whui
country seems to be the lack of water with
which to mine. One to two ounce diggings
are plentiful, but if a miner gets ix weeks
water in twelve months, he's in luck.
Help those who TRY TO HELF' TheSI-!
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 snpport of her children, she
asks the kind people of this city who may
have work which they wish done to give
her a trial. This is a case which should
interest all our benevolent disposed citizens.
Let any who have work of this kind which
they wish done take it to Mrs. Day.
Fancy Gardening Is Just what our
friends F. M. Wadsvvorth antTO. L. Parks,-
over in Benton county, about one mile
from this dtyv,are at present turning their
attention to. They have acres of straw
berry plants now in full bloom, from which
they will gather during the season, should
ft be a favorable one, in the neighborhood
of two hundred gallons of berries per day.
They have several acres planted in black
berries, of the best varieties. During
the two or three yeara they have been
occupying their present place, they have
secured one of the richest of garden spots
where before stood deuse fir thickets. They
are preparing to supply this market with
all the different berries from their garden
-strawberries, blackberries, raspberries,
currants, gooseberries, etc. A thrifty
young orchard is also under way, and they
will soon liave cherries, pears, plums, ap
ples, etc., in any quantity. On their place
is to be seen the finest looking lettuce we
ever saw anywhere at this season, and all
the other table vegetables are growing right
aiong ana win booh uw ratuj v.
The is nlentv of room across the river for
8COres of just such garden spots, the land
. . ...
being as rich as cream, and can be had now
at comparatively low figures.

OUR DAILY RECKONING.
If we sit down at sun.
And count the thh.gs that we have donev
And, counting, nntl . .
One self-denying act, one word
That eased the heart ot hitn who heard f
One glance most kind.
That fell like sunshine where ft" went :
Then we may eortnt the day well spen .
But if through all the life-longd'ay
We eased no heart by yea or nay
It through it all -We've
done nothing that we can fracas
That brought the sunshine to a face, '
No act mast small.
That helped some soul, and nothingcor
Tlien count the day as worse than lost.
Does these lines express a truth 1
Is it true, O, Christ in hen ven.
That the highest sffp f
That the strongest wandw furt.Hwf
And more hopelessly are lostr - .
That the sign of rank in nature
Is capacity for pal" ! .
