consumption, took place from the family
residence, at the head of Liberty street,

Our library is steadily increasing its

A very sad and fatal accident occurred
at Caecades Saturday. Mrs J. J. Gib
bons and her eon were driving into town
in a cart when the boy stopped to pick
up a horse shoe in the road. The
horse which they were driving became
frightened and ran away, throwing Mrs.
Gibbons out and breaking ber neck. A
horseman who saw the runaway team
endeavored to catch up and stop them,
but failed to do so, overtaking them
only in time to raise the lifeless form
of the unfortunate woman from the
road where she had been thrown. The
husband of the deceased was formerly
employed in the shops at this place,
where she has a number of friends.

"Air Ship" Fell Flat, Bat Not Flatter

The Air ship company, which was all
that the name implies, very airy, suc
ceeded in disgusting n unusually large
audience Saturday night, and making
them wish an air ship would transport
them to any old place but where they
were. People who, after reading thje
flattering notices given by theOregoniao,
and foolishly copied by the papers here,
went to the opera house expecting to
see a passably good piay, were com
pelled to listen to what -would not pe
riety show. There was not a plot to thi
play, not a singer, an actor, a dancer,
noreven a pretty feirl on the stage, the
only redeeming feature being the beauti
ful scenery, and the tableau between
the second and third acts. The play
consisted of well, we'll give it up, un
less it was a conglomeration of skirts,
which were built bo as to display homely
No blame can be attached to the man
ager of the opera house, who did all in
his power to find out the true status of
the company. It seems a good deal of
money must have been put up in Port
land as every report has been flattering.
However, if such playa were the only
ones brought to the city it would be no
more than could be expected, for some
how it seems they are the style most

such actors as Ward, or even as the
Noble company, which need no-recommendation
trom any one, appear in our
.city, about a dozen gather at the opera
house to greet them, while the rest of
the theatre-going public have as an ex
cuse for their absence that they were 'so
filked' when Si Perkins and the Air
Ship company were here," that they
were "afraid to attend." The next week
when eome snide minstrel or third-class
'Uncle Tom's Cabin" show pastes up
ts glaring, heart-rendering bills, a rush
s made for seats and the opera house
will hardly contain the crowd.
