Jicaufiful City in the Heart
' of a Rich Land-
ITS IU SIX ESS AX It llUslXKSS
The county seat o
is now a city of over 1400 inhabitants
situated in the most lieautiful, produc
tive and at the same lime, pisturesrpie
poi tion of Southern Oregon, llosebur-'
is about 150 miles north of the soutl
line of the Statu and two hundred
miles south of Portland, on the Oregon
nnd California railroad; beautifully
situated on the east bank of tlie South
Uiup4ua river, in almost the center of
the county, nnd is the mam railiaod
shipping -point, Hie beauty of its
natural surroundin"s is boiDi' gradually
invproved each year by th
01 handsome residences am
house", erected by its enterprising cit
izens, who have no desire to seek for a
more pleasant or healthful locality.
They feel that it is useless to look or
ever expect to find a cliiuato belter
tempered and a soil as cvnjy produc
tive as Uoulas county.
Koseburg has the reputation of be
ing full of live, active and enterprising
business men. J his thriny city con

most worthy of special mention, be

DOUGLAS COUNTY BANK.
Thete is perhaps no feature of the
business interests of any community
of more actual necessity, of more vitil
importance under the present advanced
state of civilization and commercial
proirress, than the banking establish
ment. Each person in the community
cannot provide hinself with a fire-proof
plaee of gaiety for his earnings artd
what other cash ho may posess and if
he could, it would be a r.eodless expen
diture of money to do so when one or
two such places of safety will suffice
for all in the neighborhood, -Aguin,
the convenience of exchange is a mat
ter highly appreciated by the iner
' chants and others who hava to make
payments 'to distant parties, ltose-
burg long felt the want of such an in-
stilution before the matter was tanen
in band by Messrs Humphrey it Flint,
who organized and established the bank
named at tho head of this notice. . For
thtf benefit of depositors we wilb state
that the proprietors of tho bank here
are old citizens for young men, with
established reputations for honor and
financial responsibility. The Douglas
County Bank sells exchange, makes
collections and does a general banking
business. It is located on Jackson
street and is open during
W. O. WOODWARD.
Tho harness business of Roseburg of
which the above named gentleman is
the representative, fills an important
place in the industries of the city. He
lias had many years experience in the
business in this city. The amount
of work turned out by his shop is in
creasing steadily and he well deserves
the increase if attention to tho wants
of his customers, cood coods. first-class
work and reasonabo prices contributed
to success. No man in the state can
do a better job of work than he,
.whether it is on a new set of harness
or in repairing an old one. He keeps
i n stock a full, line of everything
usually' found in a first-class harness
shop. Give him a call at his shop one
block- west of Matks'it Go's, store,
The "old reliable" shop is still in
the hands of our Teutonic friend "Jako"
and has' been for the last twenty years.

KOSEUCltG IRON, WORKS.
This establishment, under the con-
trol of Dr. Bunnell, is one of the best
equipped of its class in tho state and is
the only foundcy in Southern Oregon,
lie is prepared to do nil fcinds of work
from tho simplest niece of renairin" to
the production, complete, of a steam
engine. The machine shoo is fitted tin
with lathes, planers, drills, and in fact
everything necessary to the functions
ot a lirst-class establishment. Tlie nat-
tern room and foundry are complete
in every detail, and patterns and cast-
in;3 can be furnished on short notice,
jncie is no work pertaining to a fonn
dry and machine shop that ho i3 not
picparea to cioin tne most reliable and
prompt manner. If you have farm or
null maenmery in need of repairs no
better place can bo tound to have the
wor done. Ho is also prepared
inrnisa iron iron ts tor new buildings
as is evidenced on the several new
brick builJings in this city.
Make Ivoseburg the manufacturing
center that it should lie. There is no
reason why tho manufacturing for the
people of Southern Oregon shonld be
so largely done in other places.
Among the advantages of having the
manufacturing dono here are that the
factories give employment to men, who
with their families, spend tho nioiiey
they earn right here in the purchase of
food, fuel, clothing and other goods.
To do all they can to build up a home
markets the true policy or the merchant
farmer, doctor, lawyer, editor, mechanic
and every other citizen of a community.
And when a manufactory is started,
the way to cherish and build up a home
market, is to' patronize' home factories.
Always give it 'the preference in the
purchase of whatever it manufactures.
Spend your money with it, and it will
be Epeut again right here, kept in circu
lation and ton to one some of it will Cud
its way back: into your pocket, while if
it is sent off it will hardly stand the
transposition charges back.
One ot the leading, aud, in fact, the
only exclusive boot and shoe store in
Uosf burg is tho establishment of Mr.
Langenbera;. Mr. Langenberg came
herein June 1871 and worked at his
trade as a jour, for three years after
which he opene d a shop of his own since
which time by dilligcncc and a determi-'
nation to le second to none he has
gradually men to his present standing
and is to-day conducting one of the
largest boot and shoe stores in southern
Oregon. Ho handles the best gcods
he can buy and sells the same at bed
rued prices. lie makes a specialty of
ladies and misses line shoes, and carry
ing a heavy slock, can suit any taste
in stylo and tpiality, has on endless
variety of bouts and childrens shoes.

years he has been hugely and success

sides being one o.f tho first and most
successful business men of southern
Oregon, he is one of the oldest practi

much belter oeconimodalions than

bountiful supply of provisions prepared
in tlie best sty les of the culinary art.
The rooms are comfortable and well
furnished and "'tis a joy to press a pil-

and take a comfortable nishts repose.
The proprietor of this popular hotel,

XUt. M. W. DAVIS.
Dentistry was first brought to per
fection in the United Ktates, and no
profession has made move creditable
advancement than this. Tlie art of!
preserving the natural teeth and sup-
plying their places when lost, is a fine
art and one of vast importance to all
classes of people. Dr. Davis is the
leading representative of it in Koso-
burg. His .works speak for him in all
parts of the county. lie has recently
fitted up parlors in
next door to J ask dlek's jewelry store
where he will welcome all his old cus
tomers and as many new ones as may
vcqnire lus services.
These pioucrr liverymen of Roseburg
are still ia the business,-and have
made it a success. They commenced
the business m tho early days or Ore
gon when saddle and packhorses were
the chief inolc of traveling, since which
time they have kept fully abreast of
tho times, and to day you can rido out
of Rose-bun? in any hind of a vehicle
you may wish for with the finest of
teams, or they wilt teed yourliorse3

A. C. 3IAKKS,
One of the leading business cstab
lishmcnts of Roseburg, of several years
standing. is the Cigar, Tobacco
and notion store of the gentleman
above mentioned. Bv strict attention
to business and a prompt business rule
- he has been successful and is at present
prepared to suit his customers to the
best in his line, including fancv goods,
toys, and in fact everything usually
found in a store of this kind. To the
indnlger of the ''fragrant weed" Mr.
to I Marks extends a welcome and guaran
tees his gocds. Among his favorite
brands of cigars may be mentioned the
"kicket aud the fortunate purchaser
will surely kick until he gets an
other. Give him a call.
This convenient house. umW its

of the most popular places on the road
and is f nrnishing tho best of everything
the ma.ket affords at one dollar per
day. To see tho smile of the Stewart
(Perkins) alone is worth the money.
S. HACKS il CO.
Among all tho business interests of
Iio3eburg, few have aa endearing a I
claim upon tho people, or as readily
command their confidence as the gen-
eral merchandise firm of S. Marks &
Co. They are one of the oldest firms
in the city and have always been iden-
tinea wun rue city ana us growiu as
well as Douglas countyi having had
and now liave business interests in dif-
ferent parts of the county. ; By their
strict integrity and honest dealing they
havo built up an enormous trade and
accumulated property and wealth,
They carry a heavy ; stock of goods
comprising everything usually fonnd
in a general sLore, including staple and
fancy dry goods, boots and shoes, cloth-
ing and groceries, etc. In dress goods,
muslins, linens, flannels, jeans; also
trimmings, laces, gloves and notions
generally, their stock is the largest,
most complete in variety Iti this section.
lu short, a person jean get every-
thing he wants to buy.in this store
we believe. This firm deals largely in
county produce and always pay tho
highest market price. They' bny wool,
produce, and grain of all kinds, and
ship large quantities when it is on the
market. They also handle wagons and
farm machinery of the most approved
kinds. S. Marks & Go's. Btore is one
of the haudsomest business houses in
tho state and their extensive warehouse
for receiving cleaning and storing grain
is superior to any building for its
purpose on this northwest . coast, as
has been pronounced by many visitors
from abroad as well as at home.
One of the well known bust ncss
meu of Roseburg is Mr. M. JoMsphson,
who has a largo stock of general mer-
chandise and is prepared to sell goods
as cheap for cash as can bo done in the
city, lie keeps in stock a full line of
dry goods, and the customer who wants
the best print?, domestics, drees goods,
cassimcrs, jeans, flannels or anything
else usually kept in a first-class dry
goods house can bo accommodated here
at the most reasonable price. His
stock of groceries, canned goods and
tobaccos is largo and select and in-
L-ludes everything that tho customer is
likely to call for. A handsome lino
of queens ware is also found here; also
an immense stock of clothing, boots
and shoes, hats and caps, trunks and
valiccs, and many other things too
numcious to mention. Como and see

be, "by establishing newspapers m

burg was yet a hamlet, it was fortunate
enough to have newspapers edited by
talented men, and the eity is: still for
tunate in that respect, having two prin
ting offices; well supplied with presses
and material, where two handsome and
ably conducted newspapers are publish
ed, ono representing each of the two

Among the old settlers and prominent busi
ness men of Roseburg is Clay Slocum, who is
at present our efficient deputy Sheriff, and has
at various times held office of honor and trust
ia the County, and as an enterprising citizen,
the Opera House, or Slocum's Hall, as it is
more familiarly called, is a standing monument
to his energy being one of the finest and best
equipped in Southern Oregon.
Mrs. Hotchkiss has been identified witlithe
millinery trade of Roseburg for saTcral years,
and her stock displays a choice variety of silks,
velvets, trimmings, ribbons, feathers, flowers,
tips, plumes, etc., too numerous to mention,
also straw and felt hats, bonnets and hat frames,
ornaments etc., until we are led to wonder
how the ladies can make use of somany pretty
things.; Mrs. Hotchkiss is an expert In her busi
ness and knows just how to get the right twist
to a ribbon, the right bend in the hat, and the
plumo or ornament in just the right place to
make the wearer just too pretty for anything.
It is well known that previous to the
Mohammedan invasion of India it was univer
sally held a sacrilege of the people to wear a
garment made from seperate pieces of cloth
sewed together. Each garment was made
from a single peice. The first instance of a
dress of any kind being worn was made from
the scanty leaves of a fig tree, which Eve
made for herself when he essayed to wear
clothes in the Garden ol Eden, but it was no
doubt very becoming to her, as were Adam's
first pants to him. From that time to this,
gradual but vast improvements have been
made, until now seeming perfection of mens
clothes has been reached at the merchant
tailoring establishment of H. Parry, Roseburg.
He is located on Jackson street next door to
A. C. Marks's Cigar store. If you want a
nice suit that will lit yon call and select from
his handsome piece goods, and have him

It a matter of more importrnce to a town
than most people imagine that the rcstuarant
and other eating houses should be good and
well conducted. Man is seldom in a good
humor unless he is properly fed, and when a
farmer comes to town to trade, and gels a
good meal or lunch for a reasonable price,
he, in a good humor with the town and feci
like doing business. The stranger, too, in
coming into a community in seeking a location
is likely to be pleased or displeased in accord
ance with the way he is fed. This restuarant
has been established long enough to demon
strate that it is a permanent and successful
affair. Moore's Resturant is located in the
business part of the city Where it is conven
ient to give it a call.
This centlensan is no "little shaver," now,
but he is a shaver all the same and has been,
we suppose, ever sinco he was a little ono.
At any rate it has been several years since he
commenced in Roseburg treating tho people
'barberously. He seemed to be an expert
then and his great experience since ha?, if pos
sible, been adding to his aptness, so that it is
no use for any professor or practitioner of the
tonsorial scissors and art to try to excel him.
He makes a speciality of hair dressing and is
