Law Cabi. In our advertising columns
will be found the law card of Judge
Alunson Smith, who has retired from the

Judge's reputation stands high in the pro

well cared for. O
A proposition has been made to the
(lood Templars' Ledge cf a town down
east, by the liquor dealers, that if they
(the GoojJ) Templars) will send a list of
iheir members to each one of the estab
lishments, they will not sell to any one
whose name i.s on the list. They consider
this fair, and if the Good Templars com
ply, there will be a chance of saving some
ol those who are liable to fall into error.
Commexdahi.e. On last Thursday eve
ning the young ladies of this city ga-ve
a concert and collation for the purpose of
raising funds to procure a library for the
Congregational Sabbath School, which,
we understand, netted about forty dollars.
Much credit ls due lese 3'oung ladies for
the skill and energy they manifested for
this laudable purpose.

I. GJ I 'telly Enterprise :
I iatended to have gives yow a, few
items is relation to
the iAnufaiCtuv of
lumber ut the various saw
mills i.t this
p.irof the county, but as yet I have Jxren
linage to procure thenecessarj data from
w hich to write. J&et L wish to call the at
tention o) some enterprising, go-ahead
lu.ui to tbe fact that there is a large and
tensive grove of timber, known bv the
name of ' Larch,''
situated near the head
of this Creek, soiae fourteen or eighteen
miles from this place. The timber is of
the fitK'sl atli3', ami easy to get at,which
is bound to ciaki it valuable at no distant
1 tv. The man that, Las the pluck and ert-
ergy to rt in operation a gQd saw mill
mid go to manufacturing lumber, cannot
help but make a forSiine with the riglit
kind of management, as it is said that
larch makes the best finishing lumber we
have on this coast.
Hacl it not been rainy for the past few
days, some of the farmers in this ai;d the
I'ulmatier settlement would be sowing
their spring wheat. We hope they will
sow early, and plenty of it. Every farmer
should make it a point to put iu a few
acres, at left ; it will saye them money
I v so doing. The fanners should seed
down more of their

clover. HayD at from ten to twenty dol

It is confidently expected that more im
provements in the shape of building houses
and barns will be done the coming season
thr.n has been done in any season hereto
fore. Lumber is cheap here, and with a
little capital and more energy, one can
have good buildings to live iu instead of
old rickety shanties.
I5$Dthe way. if any one in the county is
seeking a location for a country store, let
them come and look at this place. There
is no better place in the State for a coun
try store thatO this. We have a good
church, and can have one of the best of
We have plenty of water power to run
the various kinds of machinery. We have
a good saw mill, and it won't be long be
fore we have a grist mill, as I am informed
by the gentleman who? owns the mill privi
lege here. We certainly need a good
grist mill in this vicinity, and the man that
puts one up. and does the fair thing, will
be entitled to the gratitude of the people.
A little com petition is what we want out
here in tbe shape of stores and mills, some
gentlemen tMhe contrary notwithstanding.

ave another Legislature to make laws

A Sew Gaa Generator.
During this week Mr. J. J. Miller has had
on exhibition in the Odd Fellows' build
ing, in this place, a new machine for the
generation of lighting gas. We sa-tf- it,
and were much pleaded with it, and we
think our business houses would do well
to secure the right to use it. The Ort
rjonian of the 23d of February contains
the following remarks in regard to this
new gas generator, which W3 believe to
be correct :
It is claimed for !t that it is absolutely
safe from explosion md that it will furnish
gas at the rate of not over 92 per thou
sand feet. The cost of the machine is
about $100 fof eight burners. We have
seen it in operation, and without attempt
ing to describe the process of gas genera
tion, we have no hesitation in saying that
it seems to have all the advantages which
the proprietor claims for it. The lights
are as steady as ordinary gas lights lind
fully as brilliant. The burners can be
used with or without chimneys, though
with chimneys the light is steadier and
more powerful. The machine is so ar
ranged that gas is generated in quantity
to suit the consumption. There isho per
ceptible difference in the blaze, w hether
one or all the burners' are In Use. If all
are lighted, the machine : imply runs faster
and generates gas more rapidly. For ho
tels or other public buildings, or even
dwellings where several limb's are wanted,
it can be used at a cost not greater than
1 1 1 - , 1 - . c
neiufiit; lumps, auu wr.noui- any or me
dangers it i explosion which attach to the
use of kerosene, and very much cheaper
than it is possible to make coal gas. After
the machine is purchased and the neces
sary gas fitting supplied, the only cost o
material is gasoline, the gas being gener
ated from the latter by simple contact of
air and water. Mr. Miller will take or
ders to furnish machines, or will sell
county rights ia Oregon or Washington
