St. Valentine's Day.
Next Wednesday will be St. Valentine's
day and many an expressive billetdoux
will be sent and received in pursuance of
the time honored custom. This practise is
attributed to various causes but is generally
conceeded to be in celebration of the festi ¬
val of the time honored saint. St. Valen
tine was beheaded at Bome in the reign of
the emporer Claudius, A. D. '270, and was
early canonized. He was a man of most
admirable parts and so famous for his lov
and charity, th it the custom of choosing
valentines upon his festival took its rise
from theuce and is still practised. Others
derive the custom from birds being sup
posed to select their mates on this day;
others again from a practice prevalent in
ancient Home at the vestival of the Luper
calia, held during the month of February,
when, among other ceremonies, the names
of the young women were placed in a box,
from which they Were taken by young men,
according as chance directed. At once
practised, it was the custom on the eve of
Feb. 14, St. Valentine's day, to have the
names of a select number of one sex put
into some vessel by an equal number of the
othpr, and thereupon every one drew a
name, which for the time being was called
his or her valentine. The custom of choos
ing valentines existed very early, and was
much practised in the houses of the gentry

Fire at Eugene City.
About 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon a fire
broke out in the rear of Mechanics' boot
and shoe store occupied by M. Barnett. Five
minutes after the alarm was siven the hook
and ladder and engine companies were out
in full force, but owing to ice in the engine
the file gained considerable headway before
a stream was started, but in a few minutes
two streams were. turned on and tho flames
extinguished. The loss is small and will
not exceed $1000 and this is partially cov

are jubilent over the success of their new

from "The Times."
Editor of Times: In reading the Zast
number of your paper, I noticed yon asked
all who had been benefited by the letter
published in your valuable paper about a
year ago, to write yon the facts for publi
cation. The letter from Dr. Bate3 created
a great amount of excitement in this vicin
ity, as he is well and favorably known by
everybody here. His reputation as a man
and as a physician gave everybody the ut
most confidence in all his statements, and
this of course soon made the name Ken
dall's Spavin Cure not only familiar but
very popular. In reply to your request I
would say: about nine years ago I slipped
on the ice" and sprained my right limb at
the knee joint. I was very lame and suffer
ed excruciating; pain much of the time since,
and some of the time thought I should be a
cripple for life. IX Bates' letter printed in
your paper gave me so much eonSdence in
the virtue of Kendall's Spavin Cure that J
tried it for my knee and less than one bot
tle completely cured me so that 1 have had
no return of pain or lameness, for which, of
course, I cannot feel too thankful. Since
my recovery I have visited friends m the
west and found that the iollowing parties
have used it with the grandest results in
that part of the country: The Rev. John
Rice, Hematite, Mo., used it ou his own
person fcr an injury of 3a years standing
and performed one of the most wonderful
cures I ever heard of. J. L. MoClure of
Strong City, Kansas, cured a badly lacer
ated and poisoned hand, from a hog bite
aud also removed an enlargement near the
hip joint which had become large and
troublesome. He also used it for pleurisy
and found that bathing his chest with it re
lieved him at once. Ta my surprise I found
that this wonderful remedy was better
known in the west than it was in the east)
and I found that they were using it there
for animals as well as on human flesh with
the very best of results, and I find so many
cases wherever I go to confirm the favorable
opinion I had already formed of it that I am
glad of an opportunity of telling the readers
of your valuable paper what I have learned
in regard to it. Hoping to hear from others
upon this Very important subject, especially
important to those who have suffered for
years like myself, I remain,
