FROM LAKE COUNTY-
Summer Lake, Jan. 15, 1880.
Editor Gazette. We are having a very
cold winter in this part of tKe country ; the
snow in-this valley was from 18 to 24 inches
.deep in some places, anil fearfully cold
pretty rough on persons raised in Webfoot.
In Goose Lake the snow is much deeper.
The mail carrier in going to Lake View last
week was eleven hours going seven miles,
on horse back ; the. snow was several feet
deep. It is feared there will be considera
ble lo83 of stock all over Lake county, for
as a general thing people were not prepared
for such a cold winter. I think the people
here who haven't much stock are the hap
piest now, for those that have must lose.
Paisley, a young city situated on the
Chewaucan river, is in " full blast." They
have a good school there, which is a great
benefit to the place.
Yours truly, Mary Withers.
Land Pcrchased. Mr. Nick Baesen, of
.the Palace market, has bought ten acres of
land, of Capt. Allen, one-half mile wet of
town, upon which he will erect a slaughter
house as soon as the weather will permit
above is what Nick says, but knowing
his proclivities as well as we do, we suspect
he is trying to beguile our people. We are
satisfied that he has been su(et)ing for some
time for the hand of one of Corvallis' fair
ones, and has " rendered " weekly accounts
of his " heart," and cleav(er)s to her with
"tender" sweetness; Bad knowing Nick to
be a good " liver," and the further fact that
ten acres is entirely too much land to devote
to the purpose named, we are inclined to
the opinion that he is about to erect another
Palace on said premises, and if he is not
"chucked," he'll take a "spare-rib " home.
We would not speak this above a whisper,
for fear the old " Nick " would be to pay.
Sociable. Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Vincent of
the Vincent House, Monday evening gave a
select p:irty to some of their more intimate
friends. The dining room was cleared,
Prof. Tompson and the Dr. furnished excel
lent music while the young people tripped
the "light fantastic," until the "we sma
hours," while the older and the more staid
engaged in games of seven up, eucher and
whist. The Dr. and wife are possessed of
the very happy faculty of making their
guests comfortable and happy to a high de
gree. The Dr. as a caller is a success and
draws the bow with the method of a pro
fessional. All present enjoyed the affair
immensely and wended their homeward
steps at the close of the entertainment,
with hearts full of gratitude to their hosts
English Common Room. Our English
citizens, who are an important facfcr in our
population, are fitting up a reading room,
over John Ray & Son's grocery store, corner
of Second and Monroe streets. Their tables
will be supplied with all the leading English
papers and periodicals together with leading
American publications. A well afforded
reading room is as essential to the happi
ness of Englishmen as roast beef and alf
and alf. We expect the enterprise will be
an entire success, and will be the means of
enabling our cousins in a manner to forget
that they are in a strange land. The facili
ties thus afforded them will enable all its
patrons to keep thoroughly posted on all
topics of interest in their native land and
its colonies, and also to keep up with cur
rent events in the land of their adoption.
A Curiosity. Mr. F. M. Bewley, writ
ing to the River Side, from Salem, says : I
. noticed in your paper a few days ago, thai a
cow belonging to Mr. Foster had been
slaughtered in Independence, and from her
stomach was taken nearly a pound of nails.
This you call a curiosity, and so it is ; but
I can beat that. In 1867 I killed a cow,
and from her stomach I took nearly as many
nails, also a ten cent piece and a lady's gold
ring. The ring and coin I have yet in my
possession. This cow was fed and milked
in Salem for a number of years.
Road Supervisors. Wiley Norton, L.
F. Piper, A. J. Porter, M. L. Trapp are

the traveling public for the zeal and energy
manifested by them in clearina the Yaquina
road of obstructions. In a few days all
obstructions will be removed, and travel
will resume its wonted channe to the Bay.
Stamps Received. Last Wednesday we
received, in a letter postmarked Portland,
one dollar and fifty cents in postage stamps.
The envelope contained nothing except the
stamps, and there was no mark upon it by
which we could tell who our friend is. If
the person who sent the same will send his
address, and state what the money was for
we will be pleased to comply with his wishes.
Good Appointment. Mr. B. F. Irvin, of

long we shall miss one of our fair one's from
the social circle.

Haman Lewis, a wealthy farmer boy of
75 summers, and a 34 year resident of Ben

all the hardships and privations incident to
a lite on the frontier. He says these are not
like the days when with mules he packed
wheat, bacon and other produce into Rogue
river valley, and notes with pride the great
changes and gigantic strides the Willamette
valley has made since then.
THE WESTSIDE RAILROAD.
On Saturday evening a Large and
enthusiastic meeting of the citizens of
Corvallis was held at the conrt house
for the purpose of considering what
steps should be taken to recognize
suitably the reception at Corvallis of
the first passenger train on the West
Mayor Jacobs was called to the
chair, and introduced the subject to
Judge Chenoweth then rose and
congratulated the town on the aus
picious event, so long expected, viz.,
the connection of Corvallis with the
railroad system of the Slate. He
suggested that a committee should
be nominated to make arrangements
for giving a suitable reception to the
officials representing the railroad who
would accompany the first train.
This resolution was adopted by
the meeting, and the following gen
tlemen were named by the Mayor:
Judge Chenoweth, Judge Burnett,
Dr. Bayley, J. W. Rayburn and Sol.
The question then arose as to the
form the reception should take. It
was suggested that the Second Bri
gade Band should meet the train on
arrival at the depot and escort the offi
cials to the opera house. That then a
suitable address should be presented,
and afterwards that a social dance
should close the festivities. The com
mittee then met to carry out the de
tails of the arrangements.
Reception to Officers and Employees.
The first regular train on this road reach
ed Corvallis at 9 J o'clock p. M. , and was met
at the depot, by the 2nd Brigade Band, and
a large concourse of people. The multi
tude was marched to the City Hall, where
an address of welcome was delivered by
Hon. F. A. Chenoweth, and -was responded
to on behalf of the company, by Hon. J.
N. Dolph, of Portland. Our columns are
so crowded that it is impossible for us to
do justice to the affair in this issue ; but
our short hand reporter will dish it up in
good style, next week.
After the business connected with
the Westside road had been got
through, the Mayor called for Mr.
Mr. Xash then rose and stated that
he had just received two telegrams
from Col. Hogg, at Washington,
urging in the strongest terms the
immediate preparation and forward
ing to Congress of a memorial set
ting out the desire of the valley for
the provision of national aid for the
removal of the obstruction at the en
trance of the Yaquina harbor. He
sugsested also that each county in
the valley should piesent a separate
memorial, showing how universal the
feeling was that this matter should
receive the attention it demanded.
Mr. Nash then read to the meet
ing the form of the proposed memo
rial, and this was unanimously adopt
ed and signed by all present.
A committee was then appointed
to canvass the whole valley, sepa
rate committees being formed in
The following 'gentlemen were
named, and at once consented to
serve : The Mayor, Dr. J. R. Bayley,
Judge Burnett, E. A. Abbey and
The meeting then adjourned, but
the committee remained in session
till nearly midnight.
The Late Storm. Our readers will
doubtless be glad to hear that the damage
done by the late storm in the neighborhood
of the Yaquina Bay was not so severe as at
first imagined. Messrs. Acklom and Gray,
during their late journey, had the pleasure
of falling in with Mr. Miller, who informed
them that beyond having a little fencing
blown down, he did not suffer any damage
(to use his own words) to amount to one
cent, and the Oneatta mill was not unroof
ed, but merely a few planks on one side

THE CL1MAXJJF PRINTING.
Have we reached it? A recent
visit to the press room of the " San
Francisco Chronicle" prompts an
affirmative answer, but we remember
that forty years ago when the "Hoe"
power press with the astonishing
speed of three thousand per hour
was introduced by the New York
dailies, the question was answered
affirmatively then, as it was thought
the very highest point of perfection
had been attained. Looking back to
Hoe's wonderful development of the
crude ideas of Guttenberg and Frank
lin, and lookingat his present triumph
of mechanical skill in the press room
of the Chronicle, we draw the same
comparison that we would between
the sun dial of Roman antiquity and
the finest chronometer movement
from a modern London workshop.
The wonderful press now in use is an
index to the possibilities of the hu
man mind, and teaches its elastic
adaptability to its own increasing
wants. The very largest circulation
of the metropolitan dailies in the
early days of the "power press"
could not have exceeded twenty
thousand ; but rapidly increasing
population demanded greater facili
ties, and human genius at once made
provision and what was lacking in
mechanism has been supplied by the
mysteries of chemistry. Just think
of it ! A thought flows from the
pen, in a moment it is in the hands
of the compositor, thence to the
stereotyper; crystallized into metal
it is locked into the arms of the great
iron giant that, with its multiplex
siuews and nerves of steel, gives it
to the world in legible characters at
the rate of one hundred thousand
every three hours, and almost with
out the assistance of human labor !
Talk about the " lost arts" and mourn
over the? forgotten secrets of the
dying vats of Tyre, the glass weavers
of Byzantium, the buried powers
that built the pyramids and raised
the obelisks what are the greatest
achievements of" the ancients to the
one great triumph of the art that
preserves all others? We stand
amazed at the perfect precision of
these immense automatic presses,
wondering what the possibilities of
the future may be and recognizing
in them a type of higher civilization
than the world has ever seen or ever
was buried. among the ruins of the
ancient peoples. Oregon Sentinel.
Though the victims of the great
eruption of Vesuvius in A. D. 79
lived so long ago, they were our fellow-creatures,
and it is. impossible to
recall their fate especially, one
might think, to recall it on the spot
without a feeling of horror. Sir
William Gell estimated the number
of people who perished at 1,300 ; but
during recent excavations so many
bodies have been found that it seems
to have been far greater, and when
we consider that, closely as the inhab
itants were packed, Pompeii was still
bin a little place, the proportion of
deaths appears large. It is, of course,
satisfactory to the antiquarian to re
flect that the misfortunes of Pompeii
have been a great gain to modern
knowledge. The maimers of the an
cient Romans are better known to us
by what have been discovered here
under the ashes than by all the pic
tures or statues or writings existing
elsewhere. The town had been very
recently rebuilt, and the remains are
chiefly of one period ; but the deco
rations are remarkable for their rarity
as well as for their freshness. In fact,
the state of pictorial art in the first
century would be almost unknown to
us but fer the frescoes in the House
of the Tragic Poet, and the beautiful
wall-paintings now in the Naples Mu
seum. Cheering Sews for Oregon.
Our people have been cut off from com
munication with the outer world so long
that anything which tends to hasten the
time when they can come and go without
that awful ocean voyage, is liailod with the
deepest satisfaction ; but better than an
Eastern railroad connection is the discovery
of the wonderful Oregon Kidney Tea. If
you have the backache, or any trouble with
the kidneys or bladder, no matter what the
cause, it will cure every time . and no hum
bug. Ask your druggist for it.
Why WU1 You
Allow a cold to advance in your system
and thus encourage more serious maladies,
such as Pneumonia, Hemorrhages and Lung
troubles when an immediate relief can be so
leadily attained. Boschee's German Syrup
has gained the largest sale in the world for
the cure of Coughs, Colds and the severest
Lung Diseases, It is Dr. Boschee's famous
prescription, and is prepared with the great
est care, and no fear need be entertained in
administering it to the youngest child, as
per directions. The sale of this medicine is
unprecedented. Since first introduced there
has been a constant increasing demand and
without a single report of a failure to do its
work in any case. Ask your Drcggist as to
the truth of these remarks. Large size 75
