The Good Templar Neck Tie Sociable,
musical and literary entertainment, at the
City Hall, last Friday evening, was a grand
success, in every way. The attendance,
riot, withstanding the inclemency of the
weather, was very large, and everybody
Beenied happy. Many of bur leading citi
zens, not connected with the Order, gave us
their hearty support and approval, and con
tributed liberally toward its complete suc
cess. But the committee are under special
obligations, to the Second Brigade Band.
Prof. McElroy, Prof. Brotherhood, and the
young people who so cheerfully aided in the
musical and literary part of the programme,
and to the citizens generally, for the true
sociability exhibited on that oceasion. To
Mrs. H. W. Vincent, of the New Eng'and
House, who prepared and superintended, in
person, the iee-cream department, is due
much of the financial success of the enter
tainment ; also to Dr. F. A. Vincent and
wife for efficient services. In fact, we can't
particularize, where the entire community
seemed so cheerfully willing to aid in mak
in the entertainment the most successful
and enjoyable one of the season. The net
proceeds amounted to about S50. Pretty
Stood for a stormy night, and an admission
fee of only twenty-five cents. Being Val
eutine's day, the postofiiee, under the imme
diate supervision of L. Y. Wilson, and live
assistants, was a very important feature,
adding to the fun, as well as the finances.
Taken altoaether, it w:is one of the most
satisfactory and pleasant, social entertain
ments ever enjoyed in Cnrvallis, and its
frequent repetition would be most desirable
and beneficial. In order to correct any
Wrong impression that may have gone
abroad, we will take the liberty of stating
that the "social dance," which followed,
was entirely separate and distinct from our
entertainment, and for which the Lodge
was in no wise responsible. The committee
of arrangements, by resolution, decided
that it should not wind up with a "dance."
After we c'osed our entertainment, of course
the Good Templar3 responsibility ceased.
It was not for us to say that the youiig peo
ple, who so desired, should not occupy the
Hall, for their own amusement. While the
very corner-stone of our organization is
morality, we do not assume the preroga
tives of the church, and do not desire to
prevent our members, as individuals, from
dancing, although it is not competent for a
Lodge of Good Templars to give a ball. We
simply make this statement so as to relieve
the committee of arrangements and Lodge
from any responsibility in this-matter.
Ed. Gazette : A'thugh the government
has spent thousands of dollars in improving
the upper Willamette river, yet the captains
of the river steamer3 assert that the appro
priations on the river have been squandered,
and the river in no better condition for nav
igation than it was five or ten years ago. It
the snags are pulled out they are let Gnat
down and settle again in the sands. It is
certain that this river could be so improved
that light draught steamers could ply be
tween CorvaUis and the falls all the year,
and up to Harrisburg six months in the
year. Now that the O. h. N. Co. own
about all the boats and wharfs on the Wil
lamette river, and are deeply interested in its
navigation, perhaps they will put forth their
influence in congress, and also aid in mon
ey, to have the river properly improved for
low water navigation. Yet more depends
upon the construction of the Corvallis and
Yaquina, and the Wostside railroad lines
to CorvaUis or Junction, than on the im
provement of the Willamette river.

Ed. Gazette : It might be of interest,
while the newsstreams in froTi every quarter

prosperity ih Beiiton county, to give a few
lines from this locality. The dense forest
still melts away before thshnrdy white man,
and gives place to the thrifty crops. The
following adjoining farmers have, during
the last two months, cleared and put under
Cultivation forty-two acres of lane', alto

acres;' Mr: William Hood, ten acres ; Mr.
Joseph Gray, three acre's ; Mr. James Lewis,
eight acres ; ' and Mr. Todd, who lately
came to theNCOiintry, has cleared six. Much
fencing has also been done.

TOO MUCH credit
Editor Gazette : Your notice of Wm.
Reid's Portland Board of Trade Report and
his neglect to mention the ten miles of rail
road, as connected with Yaquina Bay, was
courteous ; but in this case conrtesy is worse
than wasted. There is a class of men, who,
in public matters, allow selfishness to con
trol them ; and no man in Oregon, occupy
ing a position to give important enterprises
correct standing and encouragement, can be
as genuinely small and contemptible as this
Secretary of the Portland Board of Trade,
Mr. Wm. Iteid of Dundee. In 1S76, work
ing with all his mighty (?) influence todefeat
the passage of the bill to assist this same
railroad, he insisted on calling Yaquina Bay
"a hole in the ground." Probably he still
feels spiteful, because he failed, and because
his overbearing manner aud insufferable con
ceit made it necessary for a icsolution keep
ing that worthy gentleman, and his kind,
from within the bar, learning members how
to legislate. He has done some commenda
ble things. For instance, he figured how
long it would take 1,000, borrowed of the
Scotch Loan Co., at 10 per cent, per annum,
to eat up an average Oregon farm. This
was exactly like him ; it never occurred to
his mind that there were a FEy men in the
State capable of making that mathematical
calculation. As an obedient servant of
Portland, and her welfare, with not a parti
cle of sympathy for efforts in an opposite
direction, his equal cannot be found. This
may be more attention than he deserves :
but the Orcgonian commends the report and
suggests public gratitude, and I cheerfully
admit, that aside from the premeditated and
daliberate piece of superfine meanness, the
report is able and valuable. How much
better a person feels after dealing charitably
with his fellow man '! any way.

The future of CorvaUis and Benton county

W. B. Carter, Esq. My Dear Sir and
Bro : Mrs. Simps:m and myself regret that
you and Mrs. C. should have leen prevent
ed from joining us in the celebration of our
23th wedding anniversary, on yesterday
evening. If you could have been there, and
only have felt half the gratification that we
felt, you certainly would have enj'03'ed your
self immensely. The only trouble we felt
was, in the difficulty of expressing our ap-'
preciation of the great kindness anil good
will of our friends present, and also in the
fact that we had not house room enough, so !
that we might have had more of our friends
with us. The gifts we received we shall
ever esteem, priceless, not so much for their
intrinsic value, though indeed that is not
small, but for the feelings they represent.
You, perhaps remenibrr 4n Dickon's
" B'eak House" how Little Joe thought
that if Mr. Snagsby would only oblige him
by writing a letter in "uncommon precious
large" writing then the intensity of his feel
ings might perhaps be understood. So I
thought perhajjs, if Bro. Carter only had
some " uncommon precious large" type per-I
haps I could get him to express somewhat
of our feeih'ngs towards orir kind friends for
their tokens of friendship and affection,
but then you know you haven't tyre large
enough to do the matter justice, and I must
give up in despair, or else tell our friends
to put themselves in our place and then they
will know how it is themselves. With kind
regards to yourself and Mrs. C, fraternally
yours. AkthonT simpson.

If every individual and every family
would bestow a tithe of the requisite in any
ordinary attack of acute disease, in strving
to prevent and wan! off its attacks, there
would rarely be any use for calling in the
aid of the physician. In all ordinary de
rangements of the stomach, bowels, liver
or kideys, you need only a few doses of

BLUE RIBSON CLU3-
Dr. J,' W. Watts, the great temjierance
revivalist, arrived in CorvaUis late on Sat
urday evening by private conveyance. , A
good audience greeted him at the College
chapel where he delivered one of hi3 pop
ular and telling lectures on the subject of
intemperance. He lectured again on Sun
day evening in the City Hall, which was
literally packed all the ministers of the
place dismissed their congregations and
joined with the Doctor heartily. He gave
his able lecture, from a Bible stand point.
On Monday evening the College chapel was
crowded to hear him again, on which a Blue
Pibbon Club of 229 members was formed,
with the following officers : President, Dr.
J. B. Bayley ; Vice President, Mrs. J. T.
Vincent ; Chorister, Miss Estella Glass ;
Sec. C. H. Whitney; Ex. Com., W. B.
Carter, Mrs. M. Baker, Miss Cora Bayley,
Mr. Jas A. Yantis, Rev. W. C. Kantner.
The Mowing persons were elected dele
gates to the State Temperance Alliance, at
Albany : ' Miss Cora Bayley, Mrs. J. T.
Vincent, Miss Addie Allen, L. Royal. D.
Newsome, C. H. Whitney, W. B. Carter,
Rev. J. A. Hanna, N. Baesen, Rev. Jos.
Emery and Rev. J. W. York.
The first regular meeting of the Club will
be held at College chapel to-morrow even
ing at 7 o'clock. Interesting exercises may
be expected. Let everybody turn out.
The temperance interest is on the increase
here. Now is the time for the friends of
the cause to work.
Should have pretty teeth in them, but it is
not unusual to see between rosy lips, teeth
discolored and decaying through neglect.
This disfiguring defect should be repaired
without delay, by using fragrant SOZ0
IX) NT, which removes every particle of
tartar from the teeth and renders them
snowy white. This admirable aid to beauty
is perfectly harmless aud exhales a' most
delightful aromi, and is in every respect
preferable to the ordinary tooth pastes and
powders. Try it and see for yourself.
UNION GOSPEL MEETINGS.
A series of Union Gospel Meetings were
commented in the M. E. Church, in this
city, last Tuesday, at 4 o'clock p. at., and
are still in progress afternoon and evening.
Rev. H. P. Dunning, of the Presbyterian
Church, Rev. Joseph Emery, of the M. E.
Church South, Rev: W. C. Kantner, of the
Evangelical Church7and Rev. G. W. Ben
nett, of the M. E. Church, are heartily en
gaged in this good work, assisted by Revs.
J. W. York, J. A Hanna, and J. S. McCain.
These meetings will continue all" week, and
probably longer. There will be' services at
the various churches, at 11 o'cloek, next
Sabbath, arid in the evening there wiU be a
grand Union meeting the place wiU be an
nounced on Sabbath. There seeme to be a
strong desire, among all Christians, for a re
vival of religion in CorvaUis, and the signs
of the times are very promising. It is
greatly needed, and if every Christian will
put on the armor, and go to work m earnest,
God will answer prayer, and sinners will be
convicted and converted. Who is on the
side of the Lord ?

Don't Forget It.
If you are troubled with nervousness are
disheartened tired of life, fear death or feel
out of sorts as the saying is, you may safely
conclude that you have the Dyspepsia 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 furnishes a supply , of fresh and pure
blood to drive out the impurities, the above
mentioned symtoms surely follow, and if
not heeded, end .in more terrible diseases
and death. White's Prairie flower proves
itself the Oreat Liver Panacea. Its action

ever compounded. Its cures are truely won
