IMPROVED TEXT BOOK8.
Better text-books than those now in use
are wanted in' several branches of study.
Many at present in use, fail to answer the
requirements of progressive instruction, or
to respond to the waat of class manuals
which treat their subjects comprehensively.
It is impossible to specify what is lacking at
length, but improvements in school arithme
tics are suggested, and we find that the new
series has recently been published, which
promises to respond to the want.
It is by Prof. Wm. J. Milne, an exper
ienced educator and at present Principal of
the State Normal School at Geneseo, N.
Y. It comprises two books, elementary and
practical, which are upon the inductive plan,
and propose a plain and attractive meavs of
bscoming familiar with the science of num
bers. The pupil is led up to the rules by
short and easy steps, but in a way which
presents nothing theoretically. When he
reaches a rule he knows all about it practi
cally, and therefore it becomes merely a
succinct statement of what he has learned,
in form easily remembered. This is rational
instruction. Another feature of these arith
metics is their profuse pictorial illustration
of various exercises, by which the eye is ad
dressed as well as the mind. Make every
study attractive the more so the better
and tho cause of education will be the gainer
thereby, whatever some teachers may pro
fess to believe.
A Grammar School History of the United
States by John Clark Ridnath, A. M., Pro
fessor of History and Belles-Letters in the
Indiana Asbury University, is another new
school text with many attractive features
and notable rocommendatious. In style
and arrangement it is simply inimitable,
while its profusion of incident and certain
opulence of, verbal illustration, are charms
which few writers know how to impart to
We learn that the works above noticed
are offered at a very moderate price, and I
that such otter, together with their merits,
has introduced them to use in several thou
sand schools. In type, paper, binding, and
all the minor details of elegance these books
outrank all their competitors. They are pub
lished by Jones Brothers & Co., of Philadel
phia, Cincinnati, and Chicago, who will
doubtless supply additional particulars to
such as desire them.
The Salem Statesman, of the 24th ult.,
has the following neat announcement of a
printers' anpper, to be given by Mr. K. M.
Waite, who will soon close up the State
printing work of 1878. It will be a grand
affair, as S. F. Matthews, " mine host" of
the Chemeketa, knows just how to " do the
handsome" by the boys. His elegant par
lors and spacious dining hall will ring with
"wit and wisdom" on that occasion, no
doubt, as all the printers and journalists of
Salem will be present :
The time-honored custom of having a
grand supper and banquet upon the comple
tion of the State printing, is, we are ghul-to
be able to announce, to be repeated this
year. All the Sate Printers have done tho
handsome thing by the boys, and Mr. Waite,
with the generosity which over characterizes"
the craft, will not allow his administration
to be any exception to the jneral rule. Ar
rangements are being made with Mr. Mat
thews, of the Chemeketa, who will get up a
gorgeous game supper. All the printers and
journalists in Salem, with a few favored
guests, will be present, and the occasion
will truly be a feast of reason and a flow of
soul. Printers are noted for their whole
souled hospitality and sociability the world
over, and when all the boys get their heads
together something is sure to happen. The
toasts will be varied, sparkling and witty,
as they always are on such occasions, and
the few outsiders wiio are fortunate enough
Bceive invitations, will enjoy filmic time?
An extra edition of the "Lye-Pot," the of
ficial organ of the craft, will be issued on
the occasion, giving the full programme of
the evening, etc. We venture the predic
tion that Mr. Wnifce's banquet will be fully
up to the requirements of the craft regula
tions. In the classiic language of the smok
ed poet, " We all will be dur. "
Temperance Alliance. Tuesday even
ening of last week it was the good fortune
of ye local to be in the neighborhood of the
Willamette church, just across the river in
Lino county, and to be present at the Tern
perance Alliance, which has bven in success
ful operation for several years last past. The
Alliance was well attended, notwithstanding
the fact that it was one of the coldest nights
of the season. The people of that vicinity
are wide awake on the subject of temper
ance, and are doing a good work. Tbe en
tertainment consisted of instrumental and
vocal music, essays, readings and recitations,
and, taken together, was very enjoyable,
and as to the music well, we can say from
this occasion and past experience, that that
neighborhood can throw in sight more good
singers on shorter notice than any place.
Death of Mr. Hirsch. The following
notice is from the Orcgonian of the 3d inst ;
" Mr. J. B. Hirsch, brother of Hon. Sol.
Hirsch, State Senator from Multnomah
county, and Ed. Hirsch, State Treasurer,
died at his home in Salem on Wednesday,
after a long illness. Deceased has resided
in Salem for many years, where he has
been engaged in merchandising. For
some time past Mr. Hirsch has been in poor
health. He was a most estimable eitizen,
strictly honorable in all the ralations of life,
and greatly respected by all who knew him.
Deceased leaves a wife and several children
to mourn his departure from the walks of
men. In respect to the memory of the de
parted, the large wholesale house of Fleisch
ner, Mayer & Co. , was closed yesterday. "

was Alcohol its effects on life. He treated
his subject from a scientific stand-point and
illustrated it with charts prepared expressly
fothe purpose. Tbe Doctor has a mass of
facts and statistics on intemperance, and
presents them in a plain matter-of-fact way
that convinces the judgment and persuades
the feelings. His gesticulation is awkward,
and his posture on the floor is ungraceful,
but one can overlook form while hearing sub
stance. Good audiences greet the Doctor ou
his tour of philanthropy."

FOOD EBf REFLECTION.
WHAT QROVER WANTED TO DO.
One of the chief actors in the story that
follows, lurnishss the Statesman full details
of the way a joint convention was broken
up in the Legislature of 1872, all for the
purpose of feathering the nests of G rover
and pets, as he, by that means, had the ap
pointment of commissioners to superintend
of 100,000, speut for completion of the
State Capitol, and also the appointment of
all the minor offices of the State Govern
ment, usually elected by the Legislature in
The Senate was Democratic and if that
body refused to go into joint convention,
none could be held. It was supposed that
one Democrat would vote with the Repub
lican', and to' prevent that, oiir inform mt
wis approached by the 'Ting" as spokes
man for the Grover interest, and his influ
ence soli. ited to prevent, this Senafor from
voting with tiie Republicans and so create a
majority. The "ring man" explained p.ll
the importance of the matter. What Gro
ver wanted to do, who he wPtlld-appoint and
what was to !e made by it. Hir informant
told him" that he could guarantee the break,
ing up of the convention for oae thousand
dollars. Six hundred was offered and a
bargiti was made at that figure, and a lead- I
inp Democrat was called as security, whose !
word was as go.wl as his bond,' and got him '
to give his verba) pledge that in case the i
convention was broken up the 600 should
be promptly paid.
Our informant happened to know that the '
Spn.itvir in aiMrttmi ftn.l il inSYnil i,.,f 4-. .
. I""-- WOTOTWBU v.,
into convention, had just heard as much
from his own mouth, so he waited until the
conspirators were out of sight and dropped
into the Belvidere to take a quiet game of
pedro, never troubling himself about the
anxieties of tbe Grover dynasty any further.
Wlrile he played his little game, tiie Senate
refusc.l to go into convention, which was of
course broken up as he had just guaranteed
it would, and the legislature adjourned with
out electing Capitol Commissioners. Gro
ver made the appointments and the money
WAS expended in his interest, and it is
thought, secured him one vote for the Senate
from Marion county. The ring was satisfi
ed with the result and the responsible man
who had gone security for the $600 finding
the next day that the "ring" man had not
paid it, did the square thing and handed our
informant the coin, aucordVi: to agreement.
The object of investigation should be to
find out how much besides this 600 it cost
Grover to break up that convention. The
, ,.!.. .,.V,t- 1-..,.. f 1
money to rise for such purposes, and a dis
closure of all the facts would convey a whole
some lesson if they could show the voters
of our State how they have been habitually
sold out and played by that miserable riu:

Not a Wreck. After the doleful ac

State exchanges, relative to the ill-fated
steamer 3. T. Church, wc are more than
pleased to learn, that the loss is nothing like
as great as represented. Tho Salem Sla'es
man of the 5th inst says: "The steamer
S. T. Church which came to grief on a bar
in the Upper Willamette, is more fortunate
than at first reported. She has been floated
off the bar and is being repaired so as to re
sume her route when the ice breaks. The
lo38 by this was not so great as at iir3t sup
posed. One thousand dollars would proba
bly cover the loss to cargo and a few hun
dred to the boat, aside from the loss from
being out of service.'"

The eolorjd citizens of Silem celebrated
the anniversary of their emancipation on
New Year's night at the residence of Mr.
Bayliss, About forty persons were present
and the anniver3 iry of the day of greatest
importance to the colored people of America
was made the occasion for a grand jubilee.
Ignatz Fox, of Albany, came up last Tues
day, to attend the Odd Fellows' installation,
and returned on Thursday. " Ike " said he
was looking after his " girl," and would
like to have remained longer. That's just
the way it was when we were a ' ' youug.
A QUEER ROBBERY.
From a gentleman who came down
from Albany yosterilay we learn the
particulars of'a must mreJ and amus
ing robbery perpetrated at that place
on last Saturday. Sheriff Dickey
has been busy collecting taxes of late,
and aa he general ly relumed too
lale in the day to secure admission to'
the bank, the money Wiis deposiieiT
in a strong wooden box and locked
up in an iron cell. The last time this"
happened there were two prisoners,
one of them a Chinaman confined in
the cell, and doubtless having their
strong convictions that there was
swag in that box, they went for it in
so decided a mamrer that the lid soon
opened and' the contents were spread
before their longing eyes. They took
out 120 in rolls, about $30 in loose
silver, and a small amount in bills,
and with their suddenly acquired
wealth went in for a timn such as
prisoners are seldom allowed to enjoy.
They sent out and got a lot of pies,
one of which, in a burst of generosity,
they gave to the Sheriffs little daugh
ter, besides paying Wis wife a doilar
a plate for oyster. When Sheriff
Dickey discovered his loss he went
through them, and succeeded in find
ing all the money but about $16,
wjjich amount they had spent on
their little spree. While making his
search he also came across' a steel file
and saw which had been hid' behind
a loose brick. He will have to pay
the $16 out of his Own pocket, but he
has no doubt' learned about that
much good 6enge. Salem Statesmen

Don't Forget It.
Tf you ar troubled with nervousness are
d:8heartened tired of life, fear death or feel
out of sorts as the saying is, you may safely
conclude that you have the Dyapo;si'a or
Liver Complaint. The liver is very apt to
become torpid this season of the year as
poisons arising from stagnant water
or decaying vegetation' are more numerous
and are through .inhalation taken into the
blood. Unless" the liver is strong and active
and fnrrish.'S a supply of fresh and pure
blood to drive out tbe impurities, the above
mentioned symtoin3 surely follow, and if
not heeded, end in more terrible diseases
and dyath. White's Prairie IVlower proves
itself the tireat Liver Panacea. Its action
on the liver is different from any medicine
ever compounded. Its cures are trnely won
derful. Try it. Price twenty-live cents
and seventy-five cents.
Advancing years, care, sicknoW, disap-"
pomtment, and hereditary predisposition
all operate to turn the hair gcay, and either
of them inclines it to she I prematurely.
Ayer's Hair Vruon will restore' faded or
gray, light and red hair to a rich brown or
deep black, as may bo desired. It softens
and cleanses the scalp, giving it a healthy
action, and removes and cures dandruff and
humors. By its use falling hair is checked,'
and a new growth will ho produced in all
ca3es where the follicie3 are not destroyed
or glands decayed. Its effects are beauti
fully shown ou brashy, weak, or sickly hair,
to which a few applications will produce the
glos3 and freshness of youth. Harmless and
sure in its operation, it is incomparable as a
dressing, and is especially valued for the
soft lustre and richness of tone it imparts.
It contains neither oil uor dye, and will not
soil or color white cambric; yet it lasts long
on the hair, and keeps it fresh and vigorous.
