Many of the best women and girls as well
as men end 1 oys in town are in the hop
field this yea- picking hops, the State
Journal vary well and truly says. This is a
hapsful sign. The greatest drawback to
prosperity ia Oregon heretofore has been the
difficulty of getting people to work. When
tJse baft and most respectable people in the
community, both ladies and gentlemen,
ir!s ind ioyt, engage in useful and health
ful labor, as they are now doing, instead of
idling time away, as has been too much the
ru'e formerly in this State, the country
must prosper. They not only increase the
wealth and prosperity of themselves and
the community, but help to popularize labor
and Kake it respectable, by showing that
they are neither too proud nor too loay to
work tad earn an honest living.

An editor went out to walk one bright
morning. He saw a man who had no ad
vice to give him about his paper. He had
no fault to find with his politics, could
make no alteration in the editorials,' was not
particular as to the size of the paper; in fact,
had no suggestions to make. It was at the
morgue. The man was dead.
A Business Education,
A certificate of scholarship for sale at this
office to theJPortland business college of
which A. P. Armstrong Is president.
During the early part of the day last Mon
day a report came here by parties from Al
bany to the effect that W. P. Butcher had
drowned in the Willamette river on the
afternoon of the day before. Later reports
brought the news that on last Saturday
afternoon Mr. Butcher bought at Albany a
viol of arsenic, and on Sunday afternoon,
down about the lower part of town, a small
hand valise which was recognized to have
belonged to Butcher was found on the bank
of the river together with some articles of
clothing, the vial of arsenic, a tumbler
which appeared like it had contained some
water mixed with a portion of the arsenic
Along with these articles was found a short
note signed by Butcher and stating, in sub
stance that his life had been a failure and
he was tired of living and that he had drank
the arsenic from the glass mixed with water
and had afterwards jumped into the river
in order to savt his friends the burden of
payiug his funeral expenses.
When these articles were found it created
some considerable excitement with the citi
zens of Albany. A large crowd soon col
lected on the banks of the river near by the
newly discovered relics of what was then
supposed by them to be of the late W. P.
Bntcher, deceased. They commenced drag
ging the river but all of their trouble was of
no avail. They found not the remains of
the lamented Butcher. His shaddowy form
had evaporated into an unseen aerial sub
stanoe, too transparent to be observed and
had departed from the gaze of the anxious
crowd. The shaddow which he left behind
was not "Black" enough to be visible to the
naked eye of his friends, and the involun
tary inquiry which continually fell from the
lips of the crowd was "Where is Butcher?"
But the, brilliant and swift gliding waters of
the great Willamette failed to echo back an
answer. On Monday afternoon the stage
driver, to and from Albany, brought to onr
city news to the effect that since the satchel,
viol, cup of poison and the note (so usual on
such occasions) had been found, that all that
was mortal of the late departed and lament
ed Butcher was found preambulating the
streets of Jefferson.
Since the above was in type information
reaches us that parties from here went to
Albany last Wednesday to investigate the
reports above refered to and upon a pretty
thorough examination of the whole matter
they were convinced that Mr. Butcher had
met a watery grave. They could not find
that there was any truth in the report that
he had been seen at Jefferson. On Satur
day before arriving at Albany and while
going there he told several persons that he
thought he would put an end to himself
and he also said the same to a party here
The Local Editor.
Who is there in any town who does more
for the community at large than the local
editor of its local paper ? Who is it that
labors harder and does as much unpaid, and
often unthanked for work as he ? He re
joices with you in your prosperity, and sor
rows with you in your adversity. He chron
icles your birth, proclaims your marriage
festivities, and when you have paid the last
debt of nature, he vents his grief and fre
quently perils his chance for heaven in en
deavoring to give you a clear record where
on to begin business in the other world, and
what is his reward ! There are always
plenty in a neighborhood to curse that
blockhead of an editor." Why ? Because,
perhaps, after wearying his brains for years
in getting up complimentary notices for
yourself, your family and your business, for
all of which probably, you have never said
thank you," he has inadvertantly said
something that does not strike you just
right. People should remember that he is
beset by many perplexities, many are the
axes that are brought to him for a free turn
of the crank, and taking everything into
consideration, he omits calling attention to
but few events of social, moral or business
importance that occur in his vicinity and
where anything concerning yon is not set
forth in suear coated words, investigate
before allowing your anger to arise and nine
times out of ten it will prove an accident.
Lady Bun Over by a Horseman.
The following accident of an unprincipled
deed we take from a Portland paper, which
is only one among several of the same kind
which we have noticed in exchanges from
that city during the last several months.
Portland boasts of her superiority, and yet
we have never heard of any of the uncivi
lized and unprincipled skallawags being
punished in that place for riding and driv
ing their horses over and cripling the ladies
who may be in that city: "While crossing
Second street, on Alder, Thursday night,
Mrs. J. A. Moran, of The Dalles, accomp
anied by her sister, Miss Thompson, were
run into by a man on horseback, riding at
a furious rate of speed. Both ladies were
knocked down and seriously injured, while
the rascal who had done the damage kept
on up the street at the same pace without
once looking back. Mrs. Moran was injur
ed by a similar accident at the corner of
Third and Alder about three months ago."

Husbands Counsel With your Wives.
As our county assessor, Mr. E. Skipton,
has been contemplating going out of office
soon, he celebrated the event by treating
his threshing crowd with a five-gallon keg
of beer; and to keep the secret from his
wife, he hid the keg in the well some dis
tance from the house. On the following
Sunday, he found the beer and poured out
half a gallon. On Monday his wife also
found the keg and poured out four gallons
more, and said to herself: "Elijah, thou
art no prophet." She then filled the almost
empty keg with water and took the beer to
the house and treated her lady visitors.
Now for one week the threshers' mouths
had been watering for that beer, and about
dark that evening they found the keg. The
first one drank his .luart and in the lang
uage of Brick Pomeroy, "pronounced it
good." Another drank and said, "It beats
all yet." Another said: "It is dodgasted
good." The verdict of every drinker was
favorable till the twentieth drink which
was simply termed: "Bully." The keg was
emptied. .As most of them had some re
ligious inclinations, they were new hands
at the faucet and knew no better; but sup
posed they were drinking the genuine article.
Moral- When you get a keg of beer, loan
the keys to your wife or she may drink the
beer while you take water straight or near
1 EEE3EIX G IN OREGON.
The Sacksowers' Essay.
There is a class of men, as poor as a
church member on Missionary Sunday, who
are always ready to hire out. Although
the farmers have long since condemned
them as financial leeches; yet the threshing
crowd isjmade up of those two classes of
As the State is growing older society is
making more discriminations. The thresh
ers assume some very peculiar toilet eccen
tricities. The "power-driver" is usually
the most active man of the crowd and by
far the blackest. The feeders dress in
clothes that fit much like bathinsr suits and
now-a-days to put on the college professor
they wear goggles. The straw buck wears
a Quaker bonnet made of gunny sacks and
his shirt is usually like a Chinaman's, out
side of his breeches. The pitchers wear a
blouse cut close bias unless it be an Indian
who always wears his clothes out "hias
Business begins. Threshers and preach
ers always get the best victuals. If it be a
little cloudy nine out of ten farmers want
their threshing done first; and the machine
corritoences its buzzing at sun-up and often
keeps up its power late enough to run a few
bolts and two or three pitchforks through,
and if there be any pieces of -logchains
around someone manages to pitch them in
to the cylinder to hear them gingle and to
see if they have the right, riddles on. If
the weather be nice they thresh at the
same rate, for fear it will rain; and it is the
same old thing hurry, hurry. Hired hands
are the only ones who see this, the farmers
and owners of the thresher never can see
the disadvantages of running so late and
early. What if it should rain and spoil
half of the crops, or what would be the re
sult in case of drouth and no crop to thresh?
In the East the farmers have their corn
crops as a last resort in case of a wheat
failure. We have no extensive corn crops
in the Willamette. In fact we do not need
them. The general atmosphere and climate
are so invigorating that men relish the pure
white bread that grows "on their thousand
hills," and it never has nor never will fail to
come forth abundantly. No Oregon thresh
er has yet threshed grasshoppers for a busi-
Jokes are as free in harvest as fie are at
election. These are generally perpetrated
at noon. Uusually there is one fight to
make the episode romantic. After nine or
ten at night all retire to some barn or straw
yard, where they may find one or two fleas.
If there be any anecdote unfit for the col
umns of a newspaper it is told then. Here
is where a man will forget his politics and
religion. If a man has a weak spot it will
leak ont on him in threshing season. Good
men, even after night, have been known to
find their neighbor's melon patches and
other delicacies and clean them out to keep
the other varmints from getting them.
Some men won't bear running in crowds.
