FRIDAY MORNING, DEC. 28, 1883.
huKd al tht litntiit at Ctrvallis
Oregon, as second-class matter
,1. S. WOODCOCK,
OFFICIAL PAPEfl FOR 3ENT0N COUNTY
To all c! our subscribers we ask to carefully note
the great improvement in the Gazktts during the
last year, and after reading it carefully hand a copy
thereof to some friend or neighbor who is not taking
it, and who needs a paper, and ask them to subscrib
At the same time invite their attention to the fact
that the Gazette contains a greater variety of and
more readiujr matter, including local, editorial, tele
graphic, general news and miscellaneous, fir -side ana
faiBiIU ma lliijt than any ot:ier paper published it
Oregon. To all persons who receive sample copies of
the (Jazrtte, we ask to read and examine it carefulH
and decide if they can affori to do without it when a
paper containing so much interesting reading can be
obktincl for the small sum of two dollars and fifty
cents per J ear in advance.
A man should subscribe for a newspaper just ex
actly for the same reason that he buys a dollar's
worth of coffee, or transacts any other kind of busi
ness. When one buys sugar cr coffee, in the first
place it is because it is needed, and it is bought where
the best article can be had for the money. So you
should subscribe for your' paper, because you need it
and it docs not pay you to do without it And when
you subscribe you should get the one that is the best
and the most valuable to you for your monev.
We propose to furnish to all desiring, the best
news and general family paper in Oregon anlaskal,
who need such a thing to come forward andsubscribe
It is not our purpose or desire to
intimate that members elected to dif
ferent State legislatures neglected or
purposely omitted to do anything de
sired by the people, because it need.,
no argument to demonstrate that mem
bers elected to the legislature from a
county can not always accomplish
everything desired by their constitu
ents because the final passage of any
measure before that body requires the
vote of a majority of its members at
least. But we do know that certain
measures have not heretofore passed
the legislature, which in justice to an
outraged and downtrodden people
should have passed the repeal of that
piece of infamy, the school book law,
gotten up in the interests of monopo
lists and so called school teachers who
are too lazy to qualify themselves
sufficiently to teach from any kind of
a text book. This law was inaugu
rated by a democratic administration
and yet remains on our statute books
as a monument of the plunder and
highway robbery of the people's pockets
inaugurated by the Grover adminis
.ration. The Flavel monopoly at the
mouth of the Columbia river has not
been removed by legislation, which has
the effect of making expensive the
prices of freights and charters from
this State which convey away the ag
ricultural products of this valley, thus
depriving the people of their hard
bought earnings by reducing the price
of produce to a mere nothing when it
should bring a fair price. The people
can not expect to get this class of
frauds and impositions upon their
rights wiped out of existence unless
the people themselves will exercise
such care and foresight in selecting
such candidates for the legislature as
have the moral force and intellectual
power to go forward to duty and
cause to be blotted out by legislation
these robberies of their purse and
rights. In the nomination of candi
dates at each succeeding election the
people spend all of their energy aril
power in nominating candidates in the
various counties for sheriffs and clerks
and loose sight of all other candidates
until about the time of making the
nominations. When generally there is
much less danger in getting poor m v
tcrial nominated for clerk and sheriff
than almost any other offise, for the
reason that the clerks and sheriffs
offices of the various counties pay well
for all services rendered, and therefoie
there are generally plenty of good
material seeking the office of clerk
and sheriff simply because they pay
well. Each candidate generally suc
ceeds in exciting their respective
friends in their behalf and in such ex
citing contests the office of legislator
who hardly receives pay enough to
meet his actual expenses while at the
capitol is forgotten, and the result is
that any stick presented for the posi
tion is nominated for the important
position of making laws by which the
property, rights, the lives and liberties
of a free people are to jjbe governed.
The office of legislator is the most
important of all and yet it receives
the least attention. Any man is gen
erally regarded as sufficiently qualified
for legislator, and this is one of the
main reasons why the administration
of our laws are so expensive and un
certain. "In a case of emergency" means to
do something so hurriedly that no
person of intelligence can tell whether
it is needea to be done or not, vet the
The people should in unmistakable
terms let school teachers in their re
spective districts know that they are
not popular as school teachers unless
such teachers will use their undivided
efforts toward bringing about a repeal of
that infamous species of robbery
known as the school book law. Teach
ers should be forcibly impressed with
this matter, because teachers alone, if
if they so desire, could easily bring
about the repeal of this law if they
favor such repeal and advocate its re
peal. They should therefore be made
to know that they do not deserve the
confidence and respect due to teachers
when they will stand by and see the
people of the land rob! el of the.'r trior.ey
by a legalized steal when they as teach
ers could so easilv bring about repeal
of the cause.
The foreign corporations loaning
money in this state, at the coming ses
sion of the legislature will likely make
an effort to repeal the present mortgage
tax law in order that they may escape
the payment of their just proportion o
tixation. This is a law in the inter
eti of every resident of the state who
exepects honestly to pay the taxes in
osed on them by the laws of th
state, and all good citizens should use
allhjnorable endeavors to prevent the
repeal of this just law. Such material
should be nominated for the next I
islature as will certainly look to the
people's interests and treat with scon
my advances made to induce them to
worc or vote m tne interests ot tnese
noney sharks who seek to evade the
just payment of taxes.
The tax payers and city treasury o
Corvallis has been robbed quite suffi
cientlv by that careless and uncalled
for "'in case of emergency.'' The tax
payers of the city have become tired
o; seeing tne wnote revenue oi tne
city being voted out of the treasury
'in case of emergency" and nothing
scarcely to show for it. When a city
improvement costing hundreds and
thousands of dollars is contemplated,
it immediately becomes "in tne case
of an emergency" to such extent that
the improvement is put on foot before
it is known or any one has time to as
certain what is needed, and the result
is invariably an improvement which is
worthless or one which is made to coat
much more than it should.
greater difference might have been
expected, inasmuch as the ancestors
of most Quakers of the present daj
separated themselves from the rest of
the world, and were distingushed from
others, five or six generations ago, by
their dislike for color in dress.
The preserving of fresh meat by
means of a mixture of carbonic oxide
and carbonic acid is the subject of a
recent English patent. The former
gas alone is highly inflammable and
very explosive when mixed with air,
while the carbonic acid by itself dis
colors fresh meat and gives it an acid
taste. When used together, in pro
portions of not less than 55 per cent
nor more than 75 per cent of carbonic
ac d to not more than 45 per cent nor
less than 25 per cent of carbon it
oxide, the mixtuie preserves meat un
changed, and cannot be set on fire.
From communications to the French
Academy of Sciences it appear that
thermometers an i other instruments
may undergo considerable change dur
ing long heating. In manufatories of
printers ink, where oils are heated to a
temperature of 538 degrees Fahren
h--ic for many days, the most acurate
thermometers often become so mod
ified as to indicate errors of ten degrees
or more; while in sugar refineries the
areometers are similarly ch inked b
long immersion in liquids by having the
much lower temperature of 203 degees.
A catalogue of British birds ha
been completed by a committee ol
eminent ornithologists appointed in
1878 by the British Ornithologists'
Union. The list embraces 376 spe
cies, and records every species of
which a single specimen even has been
fo ind wild in the British Isles.

In a paper on myopia, or short

C. ., states that the defect is one of
civilizatton and culture, and that it
does not appear among the untutored
savages. It is prevalent in civilized
countries, but, especially so in Uer
mauy, where the suoject of bettering
the eyesight o; the nation is receiving
a g eat amount of attention. Among
tie causes ot myopia have been tound
the overtaxing of ihc sarength of chil

Dr. E. J. Kendall Co . Gents:- Having ued a
good deal of your Kendall's Spavin Cure with great
success, I thought 1 would let you know what it I as
done for me. Two years aito 1 had as ppeedy a colt
as wasever raised in Jefferson county, tthetl 1 was
breaking him, he kicked over the cross t ar and got
fast and tore one of his hind legs ail to pieces 1
employed U best terriers, but they all id he was
spoiled. H had a very large tnorougii-pin, auu i
used two bottles of your Keintlall's Spavin Cure, and
it took the bunch entirely on, and he sold atterwards
for 4100 (dollars). 1 buve used it for bone fcpavina
and wind tali.-, and it has always cured cou.pietel.
and left the leg smooth. , -
it is a splendid medicine for rheumatism I have
recommended it to a good uiany, and thev all say it
dees the work. 1 was in Witherington & Kneeland's
dru? store, in Ailams the other day itid saw a very
fine picture you sent them. J tried to boy it t i t
could not; tliey said if f would write to you that you
would send me one. I wish you would and 1 will do
you all the good 1 can.
