Danil Hill, charged with complicity in
the robbery of a mail pouch iu Coos county,
some time last December, was on trial yes
terday in the U. S. Circuit court before a
jury. The defendant had been accused by
StiUwell, the principal in the crime, and
this testimony was almost wholly unsup
ported. The defense showed that Hill had
borne a good reputation in the neighborhood
in which he lived, aud had some diCiculty
with Stillwell's family, into which he had
married. This, it was supposed, constituted
the auimus of tha accusation. The jury re
turned a verdict of not guilty. Oregonian.

tion, the particles worn off being taken up
by the flanuel, wnich after a time will be

A Future Seaside Eesort. We
1 telie ve it is generally conceded by tour
ists that of all places in Oregon, none
affords a more magnificent landscape
scenery than that from Coos Bay to
Port Orf ord. It is not all forest nor
vet an open plain, but combines the
prairie, the forest, the level plain, the
rolling hill, the smooth and hard beach,
the uucwasing roll of old - ocean, the
pretty white cottage and its green shut
ter, the flower garden, the clifF, the
rocky clusters in deep ocean, the rest
less sea gull, the sportive and loud-com
plaining rea lions as they roll, and
climb, aud sport and plunge, all these
create a charm one never tires to gaze
upon. On the beach one can travel
with inquiring look on the countless
shells, pebbles, agates and broken relics
of other land?. He travels thus along
so absorbed by the curiosities he walks
on that he forgets even time and dis
tance. The monotonv, if it should be.
conie such, is often lelieved by tho
sigat of some ship gliding along ma
jestically on the high seas. For a
healthful or a pleasant trip commend
us to this section of Oregon.
Good. Yankee Doodle entertain

no invidious distinctions. All the boys

the immediate construction of a railway
to this city we express no opinion; it is
enough to know that earnest operations
on Coos-Bay must at once produce a
corresponding elFect here. Traffic and

Tho unriraled mill sites and ' water

In Ashland, some years ago, a few men
of enterprising spirit made a venture
in this direction, and though deprived

it grew rapidly in prosperity and popu

this, but it has advanced all the adja

Improved Butter Making. II
seems that an effort is being made to
place Oregon butter on a par with that
of any State in the Union. Two dai
l ies at least, in this section, have or
dered the most improved apparatus for
making butter, being what is known as
the De Laval cream separator, a Swiss
invention, in which the cream is sepa
rated from the milk by the action of a
rapidly revolving disk, without the te
dious operation of setting it out in
pans. By tin's method butter is made
within an hour from the time the cows
are milkfd. The next move will prob
ably be to invent a machine into which
the cow can bo put and the butter
whirled light out of her. Let the good
work go or, and let there be an end to
importing eastern lard as a lubricator
for our bread. Oregonian.

A correspondent of tho New York
Times reports that in Leavenworth,
Kansas, a city of about 16,500 people,
there are to-day not less than 140 sa
loons in which intoxicating liquors are
openly sold, and those saloons are vir
tually licensed by tbe city at the rate of
$10 a mouth for each dealer. The fee
is imposed in the shape of a monthly
fine for violation of the law, dealers,
city authorities and courts uniting thus
to evade the law, and public sentiment

Prohibition must have been put into the

In search of Eldorado.
But he grew old, this knight so bold,

Fell as he found no spot of ground
Tls.it looked like Eldorado.
And as hia streugth failed him at length
lie met a pilgrim shadow.
"Sh-vdow," saitV he, "where can it be,
Th's spring of Eldorado?''
Quoth the shadow: "For tho benefit of
suffering humanity I will state thit the El
dorado spring is situated tLr'e miles west
from Rosegurg, and a supply of the water is
kept constantly on hand and for sale by Dr.

with my sort James and got some o the water, and
drank it freely and found that it was a mild phvsie.
1 used it three inies a day for a little more than" two
months, and the pain left me aud I have not felt
them since, and th-U has been 17 months ago.

one dozen bottles sent to me by A. 13. Champagne.
I used one-half dozen bottles, taking right before ev ery
