GazeUe man frequently alludes to our en
terprise In terms ot derision ; : but we
think his enterprise this week borders on
swindling. He goes almost every day,
around town, "striking" men lor 25 cents
'apiece to pay for telegrams; after which
he gets a brief report and circulates a free
extra I Here is enterprise for you,' with a
vengeance, we coma get out an extra
every hour, at that rate.. On Monday
morning Lost he made his usual rounds,
bumming people for the regular two bits,
and at 1:30 p. m. on. Tuesday, received a
telegram from Albany, containing an epi
tome of the news iu the Portland dailies of
that day, which bad arrived at Albany: at
12:15. Parties who, paid their two bits
for that Latest News from the Front,"
received the-o"extra? 'intelligence just
ninety minutes in advance.!" the regular
subscribers to the Portland papers!
A Fink Gun. Hiram. Flickiuger, Esq.,.
showed us, one day this week, a fine fowl
ing piece he,brought from the East recent
ly. It is of the Biand patent, and pos
sesses many advantages over the Parker
gan. It is a breech-loader, and tin; .same
brass cartridge chamber can' be . .used any
number of times." It ases a common cap,
which may be replaced at will, by simply
unscrewing tho head of the cartridge
chamber;;. The. arrangement for unship
ping the barrels Is simple and complete,
requiring no effort whatever. ; i t
Horse Stolen. A young man, employ-
- ed on the farm of David McBee, some five
miles south of this place, took one of the
" latter gentleman's horses, List Sunday,
and-left for parts unknown. ' About two
weeks ago, this youngster attempted the
- same trick, but was captured near Monroe;
and on Sunday, durins the temporary ab
sence of his employer, made a' -success of
the undertaking. ' , "':'' 1

CiUANO Of AY-DAY FESTIVAIm
Culon tyt tbe tieboolH for (he CcIcbrattoB
; i of a Vnla Day.
The Publlo Schools of this city propose
to unite", on Thursday next, aud"joln in
the celebration of thelrst ol May. In an
cient times, this day was welcomed, by
the honest peasants of Northern Europe,
with songs, dauces7 feasting, and rambling
through the. budding forests, -in honor to
returning spring. A fair maiden' was se
lected for " Queen o' the May." and some
happy youth invested with the honor of ,
placing upon her Innocent" Brow the pure
coronet of sparkling spring flowers, and
to this day, many a bright little maiden re
tires to her tiny couch, on the eve of May,
with her thoughts leas fixed on her ." Now
I Lay Me,"- than on tho words of that
sweetest of poets
14 You- must wake me, call we earlv, call me
early, motfoer dear ;
To-morrow 'ill be the .happiest time of all the
. glad Kew-sear ; ... ...
Of all the glad Jscw-ycar, mother, the maddest
merriest day ;
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm
to be Queen o' the May." -
The two schools will meet at their re
spective houses at 9 o'eloekand at 9:30
form procession and march to Court House
Block, where they will unite and proceed
to the grounds, across the Mary's River
Bridge, where a short address will be de
livered, when ; an opportunity will be af
forded for indulgence in baseball, swing
ing, croquet, gnicejioop3i and various oth
er amusements of the dayrv' The teachers
extend a cordial invitation to the patrons
of the schools and the public generally, to
participate in the festivities, and the Com
mittee of Arrangements "will spare no
pains to render the anniversary celebration
pleasant for all who attend. It is expected
that each will provide himself with the
necessaries for a basket dinner. Baskets,
properly labeled, may be loft at cither
schoolhouse, whence they will be forward
ed to the grounds in wagons. . , .
Thk Reason Why. The question has
often been asked us, during flte past week,
why we did uot get out more ex tras. The
answer is plainly this : On Monday last,
we went to the telegraph office, and. re
quested to be furnished with a report,;
from Yrekar upon the arrival of each
courier with important dispatches. Our
request was duly forwardcd,3!yid acknowl
edged. On Tuesday a report -wis serit to
W. B. Carter, of the &Me!:$t 'Ehc opera
tor here asked for our repirfj'and received
a message from AlbaiQyvsayhig tint if
3fri'. Carter did )iot want, thai report, the
Democrat could have Mi I Wepolltely de
clined to be dependent frpou the tastes of
Mr. Carter, and were imable to obtain any
reports, j . . "V; -r ' -:
West Sinn Maii. We received from
our agent at Junction, on Thursday even
ing last, a petition to the Postmaster Gen
eral,' praying for the extension of the
mail ro;ite from Portland to this city (on
the westside) to Junction City, ; We have
frequently urged the importance of this
extension, ' and ;the alacrity with which
wo obtained sigriors.to the petition shows
that the neonlo feel aft iii3rc.iiMtk!if-
lee-- i ria fieiiuoii vt ai uc siguujuy near
ly every man in this county The people
of Junction have unanimously signed a
similar document. We hope to' see the
extension made at no distant day."'" -t
RKSPOxaiiJiiK. We pity that poor ' 'Rev.
gentleman who boasts that lie writes edi
torials ',' for the Democrat, as the Gazette
says vrheilter he icrote ikem or not,, he is le
gally ami , morally responsible for them,
Howlfie"poor fellow can be responsible
tor those articles, it he did no indite them
is what puzzles our brain. " But "judg
ment has. commenced in Corvallis," and
Carter has got to Shuttle a fearful respon
sibility on some' one, and he is mean
enough to impose on a poor, inoffensive
preacher. ' ' '"
Ton Tangent. This station, but six
miles east of this city, is- soon to become
the depot for Corvallis, instead of Albany.
Geo. Wi Houck, Esq., with his" usual en
terprise has already run one or two teams
over therej andassoon as some repairs
now being made to the road are corcplcted,
will put on a regular line of hacks from
here, connecting with the trains both north
and south. ' " ' ;J -s
Seeding. From a gen tleman "just down
from Mcinroei we learn that the farmers
all along the road are husy "finishing up
their spring seeding, fu one. field severi
teeu teams were Tsoen at work. A larger
acreage than ever bcforenvill he sown in
Beaton county. Frospcets for an abund
ant harvest are everj where flattering.
MAKra.KKWouK.iliss Rosa JPittman,
of Junction, is in the city, soliciting pupils
to 'learn1 -.the art -iof' ornamental marble"
wortl ThU youogilady is an artist in
.this accomplish merit, and will no doubt
secuSrC a large -class.-- A -specimen of her
work may be seen at the Postofficc. ; i

Bnrgrliura Fired ua In a House In this City
Several times during the past ten days
persons have been heard prowling around
the residence of WW.Kigcr, in this city.
On several occasions, these midnight ma
rauders, two in nuniler, have, been seen,
and on one evening, chased so me. -distance
by a son of Mr. Kiger, but he was unable
to capture or identify them. On Sunday
night last, however, at the hour of eleven,
when all in the house were abed, a noise
was heard at the door, which aroused one
of the occupants in time to see two men.
They had passed the outer door, and had
crossed a room and reached a second door,
when Mr. Samuel Kiger fired two shots,
which put the burglars to flight. Several
more raalc'occupauts at once made search
for these fellows, but were unable to get
sight of them. Strong suspicions fiave
been aroused as to who the guilty parties
arc, but nothing tangible has, as yet, trans
pired. The tact that two or three men
who sleep iu tho house are supposed to
have some money, is probably the cause ot
these attempts. , Let as have a night watch
man at once. -
Odd Fellows' Picnic. .
The. Odd Follows of Albany and this
city will celebrate their 51th anniversary
to-day, with appropriate exercises, and a.
picnic dinner at the grove across-Mary's
river,;, in; Avery's pasture . At 9 jo'cl ock
the members of " Barnum ' Lodge will as
semble at their Hall, ud receive the Al
bany delegation. At 10 o'clock the pro
cession : will form, 'and march to 4the
grounds, when an oration will be deliver-;
ed by D. K. ' Xesbit, followed by singing
by the Glee Club, after wiiich a picnic din
ner will be partaken of by all who wish
to go and carry their own provisions. The
Grover will not bring up the excursionists,
as annouueed, and they will arrive in hacks.
' UNcmnsTAtN - Spirit. 1 The poor
creature who professes to be the editor of
the Gazette had the combined assistance,
last week, of alLthe ministers, Good Tem
plars, and Psalm Singers, of Corvallis, in
writing our obituary. According tO: the
sanctified hypocrite whose name stands 'at
the head of the leading column of the
Methodist organ, " Judgment has com
menced in Corvallis." We don't believe
It ; for if it should, the first being struck
would be the contemp'tible driveller over
the waj'. If he is not a fit object for the
vrath of God; there is no use of preach
ing any more about hell and future tor
ments. ' - ' . J - " '',:'-'' ' ;

again coming from the people around Ya

Siletz are constantly prowUur around the

that occurred, not more than a hundred

dulcinea, that he wonld "while away tlie
pleasant moments of the evening in her
estimable presence." The maiden had a
brother of not more than twelve summers;
an intelligent and interesting lad, whot
wishing -to while away the pleasaut mo

asperities of man's nature are softened and
life rendered enjoyable ; another Is, occu

prepared for perdition ;. on the third, a
