Erii'.av uitiht being (be fourth anni
versary of the orchestra. Mrs, Appelhoff,
sesisted by the ladies of her music class
gave the members a right royal recep
tion. There were besides, a goodly
number of invited guests, and the pro
gramme which was well rendered af
forded delightful entertainment. There
was a alight variance, from that in
tended, as little Ruth Gibson, whom so
many wished to see preside al the piano
was too ill to be present, and Miss Bit
xer's absence on account of her mother's
illness. But otherwise the musical dis
courses of the orchestra, the solos,
ducts and tiioa by tbe different per
formers were highly appreciated and
gave evidence of being well mattered.
The sandwiches, coffee and cake given
as a finale was much enjoyed, and while
indulging, one conld not withhold the
praises due Mrs. Appelhoff, not only
for her generous hospitality, but for the
strenuous efforts she has msdo to culti
vate tbe taste for the better class of
music in our city. Sara Fkkd.

Dr. L. Hall passed to higher life Sun
day about 11 a. in. For some time
past Mr. Hall has not been abloto set
around but little, and a recent Illness has
brought his life to a close on this terres
trial sphere. He wss one of the vsrly
settlers in this locality, and bis life baa
lieen a varied one and full of experiences
Tbe funeral services will take place at
the residence of Mr. BloomflelJ, with
whom he was living, at 10 a. ni. Tues
day. After which the I. O. O. F order
will take charge of the remains and lay
them to rest in the Odd tellows' ceme

The farmers of this section are "get

If Providence will "hold up" the
showers due India, Australia, and Ar
gentina, the Oregon farmer will be
strictly in it. Good crops with fair
prices, would furnish a solution to tho
money famine that would knock all tho
araumoutoof the so-called populist re
formers "out of Bight." Indeed judging
from remarks of prominent populists of
this sect ion, tha pops at Salem havo
elven thair constituents about all they
want already. Civil Bend will no longer

Good crops, good prices, make tho poo1

Wants a New District.
Reeidents of the territory down on the
Umpqua, about midway between tho
schoolbonses of districts No. 36 (Scolto-
burg and- No. 33, desire to be set off in a

other, aod that it is impossible for tbe
smaller children of school sge to attend
in the winter season. During the two
months past a private school has been
taugbt in the neighborhood, but tbe
people there thiok tbey ought to get tbe
benefit of tbo school funds to wbicb
their children are entitled, this beins;
their prayer. The petition baa been filed
with Superintendent Douglas Waite,
but a vigorous remonstrance, it ia raid,
will be aent in from the old districts.
