I Corvallis, Feb. 21 1879. THE ENTERTAINMENT. 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. MONEY SQUANDERED! 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. Pacific. BEAVER CREEK ITEMS. Ed. Gazette : It might be of interest, while the newsstreams in froTi every quarter of the county, and is hurled back through your valuable columns, showing an era of 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 jjelther. Mr. Drury Davis, about fifteen 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. Mr. Newhouse has moved his steam saw mill about three miles west, into new range for timber. Yours truly. , J. C. K. McCans. Beaver Creek, Feb. 11, 1879.

We realize the force of the adage "Absent, but not forgotten." Their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, last Thursday evening, was a grand affair, and we regret that circumstances, beyond our control, prevented us from bein? one of the happy throng present on that occasion. 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. P. I ALTO. Newport, Feb. 10, 1S79. Improvements. EvEryiour of sunshine iif vigorously improved by persons contem plating improvements. The old building north'of Haskins' hotel, has been torn down and 'removed1, leaving a clear space from the old hotel to Young & Polly's corner. Nick Baesen has had workmen engaged in tearing away tne front and removing the old Empire market building to the rear, preparatory to erecting his new shop. Everything indicates' important improvements in early spring. The future of CorvaUis and Benton county never seemed so bright and hopeful. There is no longer any doubt, in the minds of in formed persons, that CorvaUis wiU become the railroad center of the Willamette valley. Let every citizen of Benton county work to this end "In union there is strength." CorvaUis is one of the most beautiful and healthy places in the State, and Benton county possesses advantages, agricultural, mineral and commercial, surpassed by no county in the State, and is filling up, very rapidly, with solid, industrious, enterpris ing people.

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. Phof. Tice, the distinguished mcterolo gist and weather prophet of St. Louis, has issued his Annual National Weather Almanac fjr 1879, in which, besides foretelling the weather for every day in the year and clear ly explaining the theory on which his pre-, dictions are based, he gives a history, causs and etiects of tornadoes a chapter on light ning rods, exposes their general worthless ness, and explains how they may be made effective, &c. The whole is of great interest and practiclal value to every one, and es pecially indispensibln t farmers.

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 Frcse's Hamburg Tea. 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. Pretty Jloutiis 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 ? Consumption Cured. An old physician retired from active prac tice, having had placed in his hands by an East Indian missionary the formula of a sim ple vegetable remedy for the speedy and per manent cure of Consumption, Bronchitis, Catarrh, Asthma, and all Throat and Lung affections, also a positive and radical cure for General Debility .and all nervous com plaints, after having thoroughly tested its wonderful curative powers in thousands of cases, feels it his duty to make it known to his suffering fellows.

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 011 the liver is different from any medicine ever compounded. Its cures are truely won derful. Try it. Price twenty-five cents and seventy-five cents. An Undeniable Truth. You deserve to. suffer, and if you feaxl a miserable, unsatisfactory life in this beauti ful world, it is entirely your own fault and there is only one excuse for you, your un reasonable prejudice and skepticism, which has killed thousands. Personal knowledge and common sense reasoning will soon show you that Green's August Flower' will cure you of Liver Complaint, or upspepsia, with all its misearble effects, such as sick head ache, palpitation of the heart, sour stomach, habitual costiveness, dizziness of the head, nervous prostration ", low spirits, &'c.

It softens and cleanses the scalp, giving it a healthy action, and removes and cures dandruff and humors. By its use faUing hair is checked, and a new growth will be produced in all cases where the foUicies are not destroyed or glands decayed. Its effects are beauti fully shown on brashy, weak, or sickly.hair, to which a few applications will produce the gloss 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.

B ILL HEADS, LETTISH HEADS, MONTHLY utatementH neatlv printed at this office Ayer's Hair Vigor j For restoring Gray Hair to its natural Vitality and Color. A dressing which is at once agreeable, healthy, and ef fectual for pre serving the hair. Faded or gray hair is soon restored to its original color. with the gloss and freshness of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness often, though not always, cured-by its use. Noth ing can restore the hair where the follicles are destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decayed. But such as remajn can be saved for usefulness by this application. Instead of foul ing the hair with a pasty sediment, it ill keep it olean and vigorous. It occasional use will prevent the hair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those deleterious substances, which make some preparations dan- ferous, and injurious to the hair", the Igor can only benefit but not harm it. If wanted merely for a HAIR DRESSING; nothing else can be found so desir able. "Containing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cambric, and yet lasts long on the hair, giving it a rich, glossy lustre and a grateful perfume. Prepared by Dr. J. C.
