Ainsley Scott's Jubi'ee SIn0ers comprise the
very best traveling combination that has ever
visited this section. Their entertainments on
Wednesday ami Thursday eveniugs drew
cowded houses and the vast audiences went
homo delights ), feeling that they had received
much morn than their money's worth in the
way of umns-mt'iit and entertainment. Where
all did mi well it would be manifestly out of
order to draw comparisons. To our northern
neighbors wo would say, if ysu can appreciate
a real good show, such as seldom travel, i'o
not fail to patronize the Jubilee Singe:, ai d
you will surely get value received. The pro
gramme present nl by this excellent company
ib entirely new, retiued aud of the bi jis t
order, the vocal and inxtrumental miiaic being
of a high standard. 'l'h choruses it-ere ren
dered in a manner which shrttvs Mitch practice
and a high ordcr of ability, while the lunhy
business is enough to break a man all up. Mr
Scott not oiily deserves praise, but the most
Ulicral patronage (or his efforts to please the
piilific. The brass band It a notable feature
aud deserves great praise;

The Taeoma Newt in ditcntting the value
and itabilityf newtpapera, taytj "A tuc
costive newAiper it not like a ninth room
which catr Jip in a night, and vanishes in

endnring oak, which grows tlowly bnt tare
ly, taking deep root and spreading itt
Branches no fatter than itt foundation wi!l
Varrant. The wrecks of mushroom journal
ism are bttnibered by thousands; tht sue
cesset are comparatively rare, aud generally
well deserved." Hundreds of newspapers
are started by a class of adveoturert who
htve every thing to gain and nothing to lose,
tud not meeting with the success they ex
peut, after a short trial, let their papert die,
and go to inflict themselves upon another
community in a similar manner. Having
neither the ability or the pertereranoe to
build up a paper of character or ttandiog,
they are forced to go the wall. 'Such people
imagine that a few fonta of type constitute
a newspaper, and that those who oootrol
such a paper control the Universe, The
facts are that inch concernt aroonly a dam
age to the communities where they exist.
They may exist (or a short time in tricki of
begging aod blackmailing, but their standing
it toon known. The Newt adds; "A newt
paper it simply a busiuest concern, with
both private aod public (unctions, and like
every other legitimate enterprise, must and
will stand on itt own merits, no matter what
exceptional efforts are taken to give it a
transient notoriety. A newspaper boom it
of all the booms the most deceptive and
ephemeral, the money spent in working it
np being in most cases thrown away, unlest
there it tu'jstantial worth and a Hid foun
dation for the enterprise boomed, with a
legitimate market for itt extension. If it in
not given to all men to become journalists,
the general publio ii the best poisible judge
of what it requirei and prizet in a newt
paper, and from this judgment there ii no
appeal. The growth of succesiful newt
journali hat generally kept pace with the
progress of their various localities, and hat
not largely exceeded thit progress uuleti in
exceptional cases." Ex.

out last Thursday evening for tho purpose of

Now ss to the advantages to be gained by
attending an exhibit of products and animals
are In iU being the cheapest way of valuable
information, as for instance, if I wish to im
prove Iny stock it reqiilrei but one trip to
see the herds or flocki brought side by iule,
which it thi only way any man can Judge
who hat that that suits him best and the same
hldiK -rood in all other detriments. O, well,
lays my neighbor, I don't care care about these
and another tayi it la foolishness to make
those fine quilts, tidies and chlldrens' dresses.
Now the only way I can reaton in this case it
to tar that because my wife and I do not have
any of that patriotio pride about ui that it no
reason why our children may not have.and it it
our duty to give them a chance to show what
nature hat done for them. Youn,
To Cincinnati. The Bureau of Immigra
tion at Portland, on Wednesday, forwarded
for exhibition at the Cincinnati Exposition a
targe variety ot wheat, oati, barley, rye,
native and cultivated gratiet. These have
been tent in by tbe farmon of Oregon' and
Washington Territory, and they are as flue a
collection of the product! of the Pacific
Northwest at has ever beoo plaoed on exhi
bition. The wheat, especially in length of
headt and plumpncti of berry, ii remarkably
fine. The rye lent ii of the belt quality and
finest growth, while timothy heads men
uret from tix to thirteen and foorteen'lnches.
It is confidently expected that good reports
ill be heard from Cincinnati relative to
TO ALL WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN.
Having purchrj&l the It V Howard wan-
home In thit place, one of the best located
and built warehouses, away from all danger ot
fin and noise of railroad, I am now ready to
furnish sacks-all new to those that intend
storing wheat tliit fall Having two of tht
very beet cleaners and a fourteen hone power
engine, I am able to do work fatter and more
of it than any other house In tht county. Like
heretofore, I shall always tndeavor to pay as
much at any other wheat buyer, and a little
mora when crowded.
