The Solar Eclipse.
A n annular eclipse oi the sun took place
n last Monday, the 10th. The day proved
favorable for a good view of the same. In
the morning old Sol was shining bright'y
with not a cloud to he see a, when a little
after 8 o'clock, the moon begin her passage
between the earth and sun. Smoked glass
was necessary to tret a good view of the
eclipse for a short time, but as the eclipse
grew greater the atmosphere became foggy
cold wind came up from the north, and be
tween the passing fog, the phenomena could

Treat Him Well.
Mr. F. M. Ghormley, recently from Indi

Publishing House. He is authorised to re
ceive and receipt for subscriptions, solicit
advertising, job printing and any other
business in our line. He is this week in
the neighborhood of Monroe. You will
line him a very pleas nit gentleman to deal
with, and those whose subscriptions have
expired can save themselves time and
trouble by being prepared with the amount
lue lis when Mr. Ghormley calls. He will
continue in this work until he has visited
all of the principal places in the county.
Treat him well.
To Whom it may Concern.
It appears that iome per , on or persons in
or about Corvallis are constantly injuring
signs and buildings not their owu. I call
the attention of such party or parties to the
fact that an jh injury to property not their
own is in strict violation of law and is made
punishable by the Criminal Code of Oregon.
In my opuiion it is time to call a halt on
such business, a hint to the wise is suffi
cient. E. R. Skipwortb.

proof reader failed to detect but one typo
graphical error. Considering the vast num
ber of obstinate type to be placed in order
for that amount, it is certainly good work.

I call this a good education. And if you
add the ability to write gramatical English,
I regard it an excellent education. These
are the tools. You can do much with them,
but you are helpless without them. They
are the foundation, and unless you begin
with these all your flashy attainments, a
little geology, and all the other ologies, and
osphies are ostentatious rubbish."

Joseph Drake, the colored man who aided
the murder of old man Schwartz last
summer, will be executed at 1 o'clock to
day. A strong appeal is made to the Gov
ernor for a commutation of the death sen
tence to life imprisonment. The petition is
signed by most of the trial jury, and by the
Supreme Judges. The murder of Schwartz
was one of the most cold blooded and un
provoked that is in the history of crime in
Oregon. The old man was ambushed at
night, when he' little thought of death.
The aim of the assassins was unerring and
the victim was killed instantly. One of
the murderers, Henry, turned States evi
dence and i3 now in the Penitentiary for
life. Drake was tried by a jury in the Cir
cuit Court and condemned to death. The
Supreme Court reviewed the case and con
firmed the judgment of the Circuit Court.
Now the last recourse is the mercy of the
Governor. It is for the Governor
to say whether or net Drake shall
suffer the penalty of his crime. There ap
pears to be less mitigating circumstances in
this case than in the case of Murray, yet
the Governor did not interpose in behalf of

Requisites for a Newspaper lian
Curtis Guild, in a lecture before the Bos
ton newspaper men, said: What, then,
some men may inquire, are- the requiaites
for newspaper business ? An answer to this
suggests itself in a reply, iu somewhat pow
erful terms, I will admit, that I made to a
pale, hollow-chested young man of twenty
two or three, who once waited upon me with
an inquiry of a similar nature. He had a
few thousand dollars and had just graduat
ed from college, and wanted to join some
body to "start a paper." Start a paper !
This is thought by almost every one out
side the business one of the easiest and
pleasantest things in the world to do and
so it is, if you have plenty of money to
start with; but it is not the starting, but
the keeping of it going at a profit, that
calls for brains. I recall now the reply,
probably prompted by a day's severe and
exhausting work, when, after listening as
patiently as possible to the young man's
crude notions respecting a business in
which he had no experience, he begged 1
would tell him, in as few words as possible,
the qualifications necessary to prosecute
the business successfully. He was some
what startled by the assertion that they
wero as follows:
A brain as flexible and elastic as steal.
A memory as tenacious as iron.
A temper even as that of a saint.
A digestion equal .to that of an ostrich.
And the endurance of adamant.

Monday Evening- "Dinna Forget."
The third of a scries of Monday evening
meetings at Pitman's Hall took place this
week, at which the Rev. Mr. Judy, of Al
bany made a lively and instructive address
bearing on the Ready Bill. He gave it as
his opinion that this Bill cannot work in
chartered towns but this will have yet to
be decided by the supreme court. Anyway
he considered that temperance people ought
to combine, putting aside their own par
ticular politics and their own particular
chuich methods, feeling that this matter of
life and death to the nation was of more im
port than either. The evening's programme
embraced a recitation by Miss Maude Hun
man; the dear old song of Erin "Kathleen
Mavourneen" by Mrs. Arnold, and a couple
of well rendered quartettes, in which the
ladies' parts were taken by Miss Knight
and Miss Thompson .
Next Monday evening the Rev. S. P.
Wilson, of East Portland, may be expected;
a man, who contains in a small compass
more life and energy than several six-fooiers
combined. On the following Monday 'we
hope to hear Mr. J. W. Webb, the Califor
nia I. O. G. T. Lecturer, whom once to
hear is ever to be remembered. N. '

Knowing it to be for my best interests,
and believing it to be for the best interests
of my customers, I shall continue to sell for
cash only. The following are a few of my
reasons: First Taking no risks I can
afford to sell at a lower rate of profit.
Second I will not be at the expense of
keeping a book-keeper (seventy-five dollars
a month.) Third 1 will not have to spend
a week out of every month trying to make
collections. Fourth I will have time to
give more attention to my business and
consequently give better satisfaction to my
customers, anil finally I solicit only cash
trade. . J. M. Nolan.
