Twekpalk's Eaki.t Apple. It is true
that while Oregon lieats the world for
splendid Fall and Winter apples, she has
no early apples worthy the name. On
Tuesday. Mr. XV. C. Tweedale. of this city,
exhibited to us some apples that promise
to fully supply this want. They were
seedlings, raised in his garden on Washing
ton street, aud were decidedly the finest
early apples (rijieuing iu July) that we
have seen in Oregon. In color and shape
they resemble both the hcllflour and pear
main ; the meat is brittle and mellow,
with a most delicious flavor, being just
tart enough to make an' excellent desert
apple, while for making sauce it has really
no stiperior even among the later varieties.
New Steamer Line. The Pacific Coast
Steamship Company announce their inten
tion to run a line of steamers between San
Francisco and Portland. In conformity
with this announcement their steamer, the
Orizahii, sai ed from San Francisco on
Thursday for Portland ; returning, she will
sail from Portland on the Sth inst. The
Company propose placing two steamers on
the route at once, to be followed by others
as the trade increases. J. McCracken &
Co are the agents at Portland, and the
steamers will land at their wharf. The
farmers' wharf at Astoi la lias been leased
for the same purpose. This opposition will
lessen freights and tares between Portland
and 'Frisco.

Robbery. Last Sunday night Van Vac
tor's grocery store on First street was en
tered and robbed of sundry articles. From
various causes suspiciou was directed to a
young man named George Anderson, who
took the noon train, on Monday for Salem.
A telegram was sent to Salem, and officer
Miuto succeeded in arresting the young
man and placing him in jiil. a Deputy City
Marshal Watkins went down on the express
train Tuesday morning, retaining with hi3
prisoner iit 'iioon of same day. When
placed in jail officer Minto went throtigh
Anderson's pockets, and what he found he
hauded over to oflieer Watkins. Among
other things was a check, which when
turned over to the agent at the Salem de
pot, produced a trunk belonging to Ander
son. Upon opening the trunk the officer
struck a bonanza in the way ot "store
goods," such as fine pocket cutlery and
several boxes of choice cigars nil having
the sale mark used by Van Vactor. - The
prisoner wu taken before Recorder Mon

A km Ci:Cni:r. On Tuesday morning,
out on the farm of Councilman N. Bond,
a new comer named West was i-o unfortu
nate as to get bis left arm crushed between
the wrist and elbow. Mr. Wet was en
gaged in starting up the threshing machine
as they had just eo.mnouced harvesting,
when in some way his left arm was caught
in the main licit, the wheel making three
revolutions before the machinery could be
stopped. Sheriff Hrrrcti was present ami

lost no time in reaching his patient and

his suffering. The patient stood tl

Hill thinks he will lie able to save the arm.
Oi'it Distuict Schools. The School
Directors nave developed a new plan for
conducting the District schools for the com
ing year. As we understand it the plan is
simply this: The)' employ Mr. D. V. S.
Rcid as Principal of the school, giving him
f 500 per quarter of public money, and al
lowing him to collect $2 50 for each scliol
lar per quarter, he to pay the other teach
ers required. There are to be three assist
ants, and more if the goon of tho school re
quires it. Two teachers have already been
selected, viz: Misses Maria Irvine and Ella
Ilunsaker both excellent selections indeed
and the other will be decided upon at
once. The schools will not open, in all
probability, until the first of October. Tlie
Director's have under consideration the re
pair of tlie Central school bouse. In it?
present condition it is not : lit place in
which to attempt to chool our children,
as it Is nothing but a barn. It. will take
three or four hundred dollars to nsak it at
! all respectable. It is high time the District
ere cted a good, substantial house in the cen
tral portion of tiie city. In this respect we
seem to lie behind every other town in the
State. -s soon as pos.-ible let us have a
good, large, substantial school-house in the
place of the old rartlc-trap that now does
duty as a school-house.
Oregon Tisibeh. The Record tells of a
prominent wagon maker of Salem who once
refused to purchase a lot of oak wagon tim
ber because it was not the equal of the. East
ern article, aud bis customers required the
lest. Of course, as as an experienced work
man he knew the difference between Ore
gon oak and the Eastern article, and knew
why the latter was superior to the former,
at least this would be the supposition. The
experienced mechanic went to Portland
and purchased a lot ot superior "Eastern
oak," which.not to make the story too long,
turned out to lie the very oak timber be
refused to purchase lccause it was Oregon
raised ! It is contended that it the same
pains are taken with the Oregon oak in
seasoning it and preparing it. for use as is
taken with the Eastern, it is just a service
able and valuable. And it also appears
that when Oregon oak is So seasoned and
prepared for market, experienced work
men can not tell the difference between the
Oregon and the Eastern grown. A hint
to the wise is sufficient.
