COI N r*Y JOI KVALIKM.
The Corvallis Gazette says of late
years there has been an effort on the
part of the proprietors of some of the
large and influential newspapers in
the great commercial centres, to stran
gle the country press, and in many
instances they have succeeded. It is
a well established fact that no city pa
per will assist in building up an inte
rior town. What are the Portland pa
pers, to-ilav, doing to build up Corval
lis, or any other interior town in thi« ¡
State. And what have they been do
ing in this direction for the past ten
years ? Lot any reflecting man think
of this for a few moments, seriously,
and we think he will find strong rea
sons for supporting his local paper.
The following from the San Francis
co Figaro of the 3d inst., with change
of names, is so applicable and sensible,
that we give the article entire, as fol

Inferentially the inhabitants
ought to sub«crilie for the C/zrozizWc and
let their local organ die. The fact of
the matti-r is that there is not a paper
in San Francisco that will assist in any
way to build up an interior town. On
the other hand, a bright editor proper
ly sustained by the inhabitants can
make a town. Does any one pretend
to deny that the amusing nonsense
published by Bailey, has had any effect
upon the prosperity of Danbury ? Dan
bury is known to a great many as the
place where the Danbury Neirs is
published. Not very long ago a man
‘ worth considerable over a million Tn
money and land, pulled a Kansas paper
' out of his pocket, and pointing to the
' head of the column, said : ‘I depend
j entirely on that man to make the prop
erty I own in this place valuable.’ A
country pap<>r might ho as pleasing to
inhabitants of San Mateo, Jose,
' Grass Valley, Marysville, Placerville,
Los Angeles, or any other interior
town as one tilled with the scandal of
the metro|Milis can lie. The natural
advantages of the surrounding country
afford as pipasing a text as murder in
a dive, or at the latest discoveries of
fraud among city officials. The coun
try newspaper is a great advertisement
for the town in which it is published
t and it is to the interest of every inhab
i itant to contribute to its support.

of pumpkin« for milch cows and other

different ways of feeding thorn, by a
correspondent of the Germantown Tel

farmers will give their cattle a surfeit
of pumpkins for a day or two, then for
a day or two perhaps none, and thu«
alternate feasts and fasts, and t lien
conclude pumpkins are worthless, The
writer gives regularly, as long they

pumpkins per head, never more, and
finds them greatly conducive to the

Two women came before Aiderman
Dobbs in our village the other day to
settle a dispute ftliout a child. Mrs.
Murphy claimed the Ixiy as her’s,
while Mrs. Ihxilan insisted that it was
her’s. As the Aiderman could not ob

on the case, it occurred to him to try
the plan once used in a similar case by

the woman, while lie sharpeneii the
knife on his boot, “I’m going to cut
this yer youngster in half and let Mrs.
Murphy take the body, while Mrs.
Doolan goes home with the legs.” It
was a clever idea, hut it failed.
Murphy stepped up to him, and doub
ling up a fist that looked like an un
derdone leg of mutton, she shook it
close to his nose and said, “Ef ye do
ye shpalpeen oi’ll murther ye with me
own hand.” Mr-. Doolan seized him by
the hair, threw him to the ground and
exclaimed while she brandished the
knife over his prostrate body, “Gim me
the legs! Berne soul, oi’ve a mind
to kill ye and ate ye.” Then Squire
Dobbs adjourned the case, and while
Mrs. Doolan retired with the boy, he
went out to hunt up a Bible commen
tary in order to ascertain if there was
not something about Solomon’s pro
ceedings that he did not understand.

W eights of B oys and G irls .—
Upon the average, lx>ys at birth weigh
a little more and girl« a little less than
7 pounds. For the first twelve years
the two sexes continue nearly equal in
weight, hut beyond that age the boys
acquire a decided preponderance.
Young men of 20 average 135 pounds,
whileyoung women average 110 pounds
Men reach their heaviest
weight at about 40 years of age, when
their average weight will lie about
140 pounds; but women slowly in
crease in weight until 50 years of age.
Taking the men and women together
their weight at full growth will then
average from 108 to 150 pounds, and
woman from 80 to 130. The averago

Nevada has a bill pending in tho
House, from last session of Congress,
providing for the coinage of twenty-

will reduce our coiitige to a complete

the broken change of quarters and

this coast. It will save the consumer
