OAK GROVE ITEMS.
Mrs. Henry Smith is quite sick.
Mrs. Wm Bush's health is improving.
Yes tired heart give up thy grief
Which God, unsolved, has given;
And let this be thy blest relief,
; I have a tie in heaven.
Mrs. Lydia Dascom has returned from
Roseburg, where she spent the holidays. '
Mrs. O'Malleyof Roseburg is visiting rela
Mr. Wm Fit Patrick was called to Port
land Saturday morning, to see his brother,
who is very low with consumption.
The smiling faces of Messrs. Marvin and
Ed Hervey of Clark's Branch were seen at
Oak Grove, not long since. Come again
The sad intelligence of the death of Johnny
Van's valuable Newfoundland dog was re
ceived at this place with many regrets.
Not only the folks of his household
Will miss him and oft speak his name,
That his life has ended in sadness
Will not cast a blight o'er his fame.
The ladies of Oak Grove and Clark, s
cold weather has come, in caring for their
flowers. Mrs. Stevenson's cilia .lilies are
just handsome. The ladies here deserve
much credit for the interest manifested in
I scorn to boast, but we have a competant
dress-maker at Oak Grove. Mrs. Sears is
the right person in the right place. Ladies
desiring gocd work done will d. well to pat
ronize her. Another thing ol which I wish
speak is Miss Chloe Waite's library. Such
another one cannot be found iu any country
home. And while I am in Round Prairie I
must say that Mr. Burnett has the finest farm
in my opinion in the Prairie. But Mr." Waite
has the nicest orchard imaginable. If you
don't think so teach school here aud board
there when cherries are ripe. Mr. Wonacott
has more acres plowed than any other farmer
at the Grove. One of Cassia Wait's houses
is not occupied at present, but Madame Ru
mor says M.
EAGLE POINT ITEMS.
Ed. Review: It has been some time since
I have seen anything from this place in the
Review, and although there is very little
doing in this part of the country on account
of the rains and mud, still there is signs of life
and there seems to be considerable business
doing here - j.
We had quite an interesting time here last
Wednesday night. An enterprising visitor
offered a prize of five dollars to the best speller
in the school district, and then the citizens
made up a purse of about ten dollars to be J
distributed arming the less fortunate. Master
Emmit Clark carried off the first prize amid
the applause of the large audience that had
assembled to witness the contest.
A. Pool is putting up a large building; I
understand that he designs it for a blacksmith
shop, wagon shop and livery stable, and
when the hay is out of the upper part, a
We had a kind of masquerade ball here
the night of the 25th inst. Quite a number
were present out of curiosity, and the man
agers seem to be satisfied with the result.
The ycung folks of Antelope Creek seem
to be determined to enjoy themselves this
winter. They had a ball Thursday night and
a bussing bee on Friday and Saturday nights,
and no report of the proceedings of Sunday
We have had two weddings in this neigh
borhood during the last week on the 23d inst.
Mr. Culbertson and Miss Cora Swingle, and
the other, if not in high life was, high up in
the mountains, Hon. A. G. Florey of Eagle
Point, and Miss Etlie A. Nye, of Flouce
Ruck piecinct. They were married by Rev.
A. C. Hewlett, at the residence of the brides'
parents, Dec. 25th, and if I was good at des
cription as the editor of the Review, I might
attempt a description of the contracting j ar- '
ties, but suffice it to say that the groom was
dressed in the conventional black, and the
bride, in appearence presented the very em'
bodyment of plainness, neatn. ss and elegance,
rich but not gaudy, Wincing remarkable taste
and a cle .r head.
I see, in an extract from the Plaindealer,
that we have had considerable snow in this
part of the country, and I wish you would tell
the editor of the Plaindealer that he must
hive ' got things mixed that the com
munication referred to must have been
from Alaska instead of Jackson county, for we
have had nosnow or cold Weather as yet, and
now there is scarcely any snow visible on the
top of the highest mountains, although the
stock looks quite badly, on account of the
long dry fall, but the grass is growing as well
as could be expected.
Did you ever hear what the T. E., Kev.
E. G. Michael did with that load of poultry ?
the wagon, team and driver arrived in good
shape, but no acc-mnt of the T. E. or poul
try. More anon. Uno.
Eeitor Review: Mrs. Hampscm has come 1
and gone, whether the revival consequent up
on her advent here has been equal to the ex
pectations of the builders of the Tabernacle is
a matter of doubt. Some good has been the
result if nothing more thnn the construction of
the building. Anything and everything that
furnishes employment for the laboring man
does good. .
If the good people of Portland would hold
a series of revival meetings lor the purpose of
reviving her manufacturing interest it would be
better for all concerned. It does seem that
Portland, and all Oregon for that matter, is
running wild on imported goods and wares.

uuuuicus 01 ions 01 Dutter, cneese, bams,
bacon, lard and other eatables are being laid
down in Portland right from the great mar
kets of the East that should by all means be
produced by our farmers, while car load after
car load of all kinds of farming implements,
wagons and carriages, furniture, etc. are ar
riving daily, while the stores and warehouses
are fairly groaning with heavy stocks of like
g"ods all imported and all goods that could
and should be manufactured in Oregon. Sure
ly the people will some day wake up and see
the onesided policy now being pursued. I
understand that Salem, Albany and some
other towns are Uking the matter in hand,
and are offering parties who will engage in the
manufacturing business exemption Irom taxa
tion. Lut us hope the good work will go on
and on until the hum of machinery may be
heard on ev:ry stream, aad prosperity abound
tl-ronghout the length and breadth of the land.

Prof. Miller of Philomath College gave one
of the m.st intelligent, conservative, yet de
termined temperance speeches, at the Presby

yonville last Sunday in attendance on the
funeral of O. N. Beals, who died on Saturday
before, from a gun shot which he had received
about six days previously at the hands of Mr.
Patrich by accident.
We have printed several hundred papers
more than have been ordered to accommodate
those who have not had the oportunity to
send in their orders, and these papers can be
had for ten cents each up to forty number,
over that eight cents.
From Dr. B. A. Cathey we learn that the

we hope satisfactory to him.
