An Inspection of the stock of fall
and winter goods now offered for sale
by the firm of S. Marks Co. will
please all purchasers. There Is no
flnet display of ladles' dress and fan
cy goods shown in any Btore in the

ter one In the Ute. As to gentle
men's dress goer's, we knew the firm
named has the finest stock. Go and
try th firm's prices ; they are low
enough to suit any one.
It is said that some of the alkaloids
which enter into the combination of
Fellows' Hypuphopphltes, are ex
tracted from trees which attain to a
great age, and that this fact suggested
to Mr. Fellows' the Idea of their
employment Whether the success of
the preparation is due to this, we are
not prepared to say, but the idea is a
good one.

succeeds Mr. I-ewi?, Is a thorough
gentleman and a fine telegraph opera
tor. The railroad company has con
sulted their own interests in placing
Mr. Purdom In this position.
There has been a new graveyard
located in the Civil Bend district, and
nearly all the bodies in the old place of
btirial Lave been removed to the new.
The causes of the change were ti e
finding of a better location, and that
tha old burial ground was continually
being disturbed . by the raidings of
cattle and horses. We will next I
week publish the names of those who
still remain in the old graveyard Da-
cared for m order that their relatives
and friends may remove them.
That "The pen is mightier than the
sword," is an old axiom. Those who
doubt its truthfulness need go nofurth-
than Dr. S- Hamilton's drugstore,
where the graceful strokes of Edward
fodd & Co's. gold pens, as made by a
hundred different writers are to be
seen. In fact these pens are an exem
plification of the good sense of the
writer who said"a thing of beauty is a
joy forever." Dr. Hamilton's supply
of pens embraces all styles and pal
terns suit the hand of the nervous
and the strong. Then they last for a
century, and are the cheapest and the
best In the work. Think of it a war
ranted gold pen costing only 85 centsl ;
There are others more costly in the col
lection, but only for the reason they
are larger and contain more of the
precious metal. See the display, and
if you can find a neater, nicer or more
useful Christmas present for a friend,
then we do not know the reason.

Hen. James Chenowetli.
We are informed that our friend,
Hon. James W. Chenoweth contem
plates taking a trip " back to the
(States. ' Mr. C. Is a young man who
was raited in this county. At the last
election he was elected to the legisla
ture of Oregon, for Douglas. He
is a young man of energy and the
strictest integrity, enjoys an enviable
reputation. He has had good success.
If be is going east on business, we can
assure the people "In the States" that
the utmost confidence and reliance can
be placed in Mr. Chenoweth.
Hon. J. H. Mitchell has returned to
Oregon from an extended visit to the
east. He will remain but a short
time in Oregon, as business of import
ance requires his presence in iNew
York again soon. Mr. Mitchell in
formed the Astorian that he met Capt.
James B. Eads, who has succeeded in
deepening the mouth of the Mississ
ippi river, and Mr. Eads promised that
he would come to Oregon at no dis
tant day, and take a look at the Co
lombia river bar.
The Cause of Intemperance.
Many cases of confirmed drunken
ness can be traced directly to the use
of alcohol or spirits in physicians'
prescription?, or in patent medicines.
The Oregon Kidney Tea is free from
any such fault, being a vegetable rem
edy in Its natural state, and a sure cure
for backache and all diseases of tbe
Kidneys and Urinary organs. Do not
fail to try it if you are safiering from
any of these complaints.
Good Templar Benefit.
Friday night the Good Templars of
Drain received a benefit from the am
ateur dramatfo talent among tbe

dall, Rosses, Leonard Perkins, Mrs.

other ladies. The perfraance is said to
have been entertaining aud the pre-
ceeds satisfactory.
Good Work,
Creed Conn and bis brother
James did some good shooting during
the week. For some time past two
bears have been troubling the flocks
of Mr. Henry Conn, br., and the boys
determined to put an end to the nui
sance. In the, hunt they not only
killed tbe bears, but caught a wild cat,

ThGreatest Overflow for Many Years.
YFot pretty near a week a rain storm
has held over the entire State, and the
general public baa anticipated a gen
eral flooding of the country. The
general public- has not in the least
been disaptxdnted. The flood has
come, and nearly equuU the one which
preceded the bad winter of 1802. The
rise iu the Umpqua river yet lacked
ten feet of the high water maik In the
year named, and the river is at a
standstill. It will be remembered by
old residents that the first rise In 1S62
did not reach the point that has been
attained by the present flood, and
that it was the second flood that did
the damage to property to far men
along the river banks, , swept away a
sawmill on the North Umpqua, and
did other damage to the ruination of
many business men in this valleyv
The floed has done material injury to
our farmers realding on the river. At
the present writ ng the stage has just.
arrived from the south and reports
since Thursday moroing it has been
engaged in making the trip from Can
yonville to this place. Mr. Robtr s,
the driver, gives itashisopionion that
Yokum's bridge has been swept away.
The mail train did not arrive 'lhurs-
day evening from the north until 8:35
o'clock, and then ' dn acoouut of the
breaking away of bridges on Cabin
creek passengers and mail were trrns-
ferrod to fiat cars, and upon tbe same
made their appearance at tbe depot.
All communication with Coos Bay Is
at end until tbe waters subside. On
Th ursday ,after 8 w i m in ing sloughs and
risking his life a dozen tim s, Mr.
Jos. Clough reached the city. On
Wednesday, by the breaking away of
the blocks on the cable of the ferry on
the t-'outh Umpqua the ferry boat was
carried down stream. On the boat
was the Coos Bay stage. Mr. Owens
lid everything to prevent the boat
from going down stream, and would
have succeeded had the passengers on
board rendered timely assistance.
They failed in so doing and the boat
was swept away with the current
With good ense, tha driver of the
stage, Eugene Jones, upon the break
ing of the blocks tied np tbe lines of
tbe horses attached to the stage, and
fastened their traces. Tbe horses
lumped into the river. One of them
had no difficulty in reaching the
shore; tbe other, after much labor was
guided to terra firma in safety. The
boat was finally towed to its proper
landing, and without Injury to any
one. Since then the news has come
from Brewester valley that all the
bridges have been swept away and
that the valley is entirely submerged.
We might learn more particulars, but
the telegraph lines are down both
north and south. From the North
Umpqua we learn that the cable to the
ferry has parted, and that the b- at
has been so seriously jammed that
weeks will be required in making ne
cessary repairs. Reports are to the
effect that Garden Bottom is complete
ly flooded, but it is impossible to esti
mate the damage done. In and about
Roseburg so far there are serious
losses to report outside of fences and
woodpiles swept away. By the break
ing of the boom and the carrying
away of saw logs and other damage
done to dam and piers on the river.
Dr. W. M. Sawbert sustains a loss of
about $8,000, and Mr. Thos. Farquar s
garden spot, which has supplied Port
land and Salem with early vegetables,
is for the time being entirely ruined.
Mr. Farquar had many vegetables
planted, all of which at this time are
two or three feet under water. The
present outlook would indicate that
weeks will elapse before stages will go
regularly and business take its wonted
course. ; .
Later reports a -e to the effect that
eight bridges have been swept away
on Der Creek, and from every quar
ter comes news of fences lost.
The rivers and creeks are rapidly
falling, however, and it is likely that
the worst of the flood is over.
One Sensible Thought.
The board Of trustees has decided by
ordinance to put all impecunious
drunks to work on the streets hereaf
ter. This is a move in the right direc
tion. Hereafter every drunken vaga
bond has worked out his sentence qui
etly in jail by reading novels and con
suming the rich food prepared for their
use by the city marshal, and impris
onment under such circumstances
couid not possibly have terrors for
those who have so little respect for
themselves as to permit appetite to
lead them to such a place. Now toe
drunk will have something eL-e to
do, and when be finds he has to pay
for his work either in the shape of
cash or labor, he will not long remain
in Roseburg.
Careless Shooting.
Tbe other day some boys did some
very careless shooting with a Henry
rifle near the brewery. The firing was
in a line with the city, the brewery
was struck with a random shot, and
a bullet whistled close to tne neaa oi
a gentleman. As a number of shots
were fired more than likely the bullets
struck all over the city endangering
life. The offense must not be repeated.
If it should occur again rigorous ac
tion will be taken, as the Uvea of our
citizens can not be endangered by such
carelessness with impuuity,

Last Sunday a tramp, or some
other hungry person, entered the resi

cleaned the place of everything In the

from an
' L. L. Williams at Home.
Ex-county clerk Williams has re
turned home from the Yellowstone
country.' Jt was his intention to re
main in the Park until April at least,
but the slander reported by Daniels
aud which found place in the columns
of the Albany Democrat, called him
back soouer. Our conversation with
Mr. Williams would lead us to belive
that be is anxious for a vindicaion
and an opportunity to prove that the
slanderous story is false Trom beginning
to the end; then tbe lady, whose rep
utation is in question,Mr. Williams has
known from childhood, he being con
fined to his bed by a dangerous wound
in her father's home at the time of her
birth and long afterward. He cer
tainly could not do otherwise than re
turn for her protection under circum
stances. The debt of gratitude he owes
her father would compel him to do ao
when all other considerations were as
nothing. The entire circumstances will-
soon be made public through the testf-il
monyj taken In a court of justice, and
Mr. Williams expects nothing more
than vindication; of Mrs. Daniels as a
virtue us lady, and the conviction of
Danii Is, as he has commenced a suit
not jt stifled by. truth or honesty. At
Mr. V iU'ams' request, we say nothing
fu th; i upou the subject Mrs. Daniels
do es not desire the case to be prejudiced
by any newspaper comments, being
sa Isiied that the testimony offered in
he r bulia'.f will prove ihat Daniels has
shiudtjrered the reputation of his own
wife.-1 . 1
