Coyotes. On Thursday Al Herrcn, assw

them $56 in cash, Polk county paying the same
bounty as Marion: That was a very good
day's work. Statesman.
Fruit Cannery. Why don't some enter
prising business man start a fruit cannery here
such as they have in California? They ship
canned fruit up here from California and sell
it here, when just such fruit is raised here and
let go to waste for want of some one to take
hold of the enterprise and save the fruit that
is and can be raised here.

The beams of the sun, as every intelligent
person is well aware, are necessary to bring all
vegetable productions to their full and perfect
maturity. The tea-plant is no exception to
this beneficial law of nature, and this is" why
"Sunbeam Tea" occupies such a high position
among the natural-leaf teas of Japan. It is
the product cf the tea-plant in its full maturity,
and all the strength and fine flavor of this
maturity are perfectly preserved by the Per
fection Tea Can, in which package alone this
excellent brand of pure uncolorcd tea is ship
ped. One trial of "Sunbeam Tea" from Mr,
Abraham's store will convince the mostfastidi
ous of its unsurpassed quality and strength .
Peculiar Weather. On Saturday there
was a fall of snow at Baker City lasting for
about two hours. It was very soft and stuck
to the shade trees and loaded them nearly to
breaking down. It soon disappeared, however
doing no damage. There was quite a heavy
rain at . nion and Baker on Sunday and
considerable rain leu at different places in
Eastern Oregon, which will be a great benefit
to the crops. A cold wind which prevailed
in some parts of the inland e mpire a short
time since did some injury to the grain which
the late showers, it is hoped, will counteract.
Serious Attack of Heart Disease.
Gen. John E. Ross, of Jackson county, a
pioneer of 1847, arrived here by the East
Side train yesterday afternoon, and just as he
alighted at the East Portland depot was pros
trated by severe illness, which at the time
was thought to be paralysis. He was speech
less and unconcious and thought to be dying.
Without delay he was taken to the Portland
general hospital and placed under personal
charge of Dr. Keenc. The attack was palpi
tation of the heart,' and the symptoms were
most alarming. His pulse was over 150, and
as Gen. Rossis about 70 years old, there was
litlle hope of his recovery. Lndcr skillful
treatment the pulsations were reduced, and
at 9 o'clock last night the heart beats were
120 per minute, and conciousness had returned
bough the patient was sun speechless, it is
thought he will come out of the attack all
right. Gen. R oss has suffered in years past
from heart trouble but never until this time
bad an alarming attack, li is visit tiere was
for the purpose of attending the grand lodge
of Masons and the pioneers re-union at Ore
gon city to-day. Prebably the excitement of
the trip brought on the attack, His daughter,
Mrs. Reams, and her husband are with him,
and he has every attention that loving hearts
and skillful hands can provide.
It Memory of Xettie Churchill.
Written by her Aunt, lias. Nims drcacmu.
Little Nettie is dead how full of anguish the
words; during her illness she suffered with great
agony but peacefully and camly she gave up
her young life and fell asleep in Jesus. She
was a fragile little flower and was with us only
four summers. Grieve not fond parents for your
litlle darling has only gone before and will be
waiting to meet you at the pearly gates where
parting is no more.
The beautiful white robed Angel
Came down to the river side
And carried our darling Nettie
Through its dark death shadowed tide
To the glorious realms of Heaven
Where dear Nettie's feet
Will never wish to stray
From the beautiful golden street.
Elk Head, Qr June 12, 1886,
Don't fret.
Talk about it. y
Write about it.
Speak well about it.
Beautify the streets.
Patronize the merchants.
Be friendly to everybody.
Advertise in its newspaper.
Elect good men to all the offices
Don't grumble about hard times.
Keep your side walks in good repair.
Avoid gossip about your neighbors.
Do your trading with your home merchants.
Sell all you can and buy all you can at home.
If you are rich, invest something; employ
somebody, be a "hustler."
If you don't think of any good word don't
say anything bad about it.
Remember that every dollar invested in per
manent improvement is that much on interest.
Be courteous to strangers that come - among
you, so that they may go away with good im
pressions. Standby your churches. The condition of
your churches is an index to the prosperity of
a town.
Always cheer on the men who go in for iniy
provements, your portion of the costs will be
nothing only what is just.
Don't kick at any proposed necessary im
provements becauso it is not at your own door
or for fear that your taxes will be raised fifty
Don't use rubber stamps on your letter heads,
that is a dead give away on your business, on
the town and newspaper published in it. Get
your letter heads, envelopes, business cards
etc., printed at the printing office.
Never condemn the local paper unless it has
unfairly misused you. If it has dealt with you
unjustly write to it or go into the office and
tell the editor about your case; if he is wrong
he will loose no time in telling the public
about it.
Remember that no man does as much for
your town as the local newspaper. Every pa
per ;nt out is an advertisement of the busi
ness the resources and enterprise of the place;
and people abroad get a better idea of it from
the local paper than from any other source. If
you want to draw people to your section of the
country send them your home paper, not one
or two stray numbers but a full year's subscrip
tion. After they have read the paper for six
months the western fever w ill set in and no
power on earth will keep them from coming.

Important Fact.
A few days since, I traveled from Ihe Co-
quille country through Camas Valley to Rose
burg and was Surprised to firid the growth of
timber that might be manufactured and also
the facilities for converting the same to shapes
for use and so few being utilized, and when
arriving at Civil Bend found a planer in full
power turning off the finest flooring from
yellow fir I ever beheld, and on inquiring found
that the lumber was hauled from Camas Val
ley a distance of eighteen miles in order to be
dressed. Now why is it that so little interest
is taken? Why so litlle interest in a road of
any discription? As I find nothing but a trail
and that of a poor order at the same time a
grade for railroad of less than one hundred
feet to the mill is found.

Dully Scene in Jtotteburg.
Republican meeting Prohi.
Rep. You Prohis. helped the Democrats.
Prohi. No Sir! We tried to help you fel
lows and did elect two of your representatives
and Dr. Marsters.
Rep. We could have elected them without
your aid.
Prohi. We will beat them next time. I
say d n the Democracy.
Rep. I agree.
Prohi. All we ask to defeat them is that
you join the Prohibition.
Rep. To the devil with you, I had rather
vote for the Democracy forever than vote for
Prohibition for a minute.
They parted, frowned but did not say a
word. Meanwhile the Democratic auditors
smiled and departed.
Eruption of Mt Etna.'
On May 16th the eruption of Mt. Etna be
gan, which, according to the latest dispatches,
from Catania Sicily, is daily increasing in pro
portions, and now threatens destruction of a
number of villages scattered over the lower
slopes of the mountain. Vast volumes of
flame, and torrents are issuing from eleven of
the smaller openings to the south of the main
crater. Earthquake shocks are constantly oc
curing. Mt. Etna is one of the most celebra
ted volcanoes in the world. The first eruption
of this volcano within the historic period hap
pened during the seventh century B. C. Since
that time there is a record of seventy eight dif
ferent eruptions. Many thousands of people
have lost their lives by eruptions from this vol
cano. '
A Faultless Family Medicine.
"I have used Simmons Liver Regulator in
my family for the past eight or ten yetrs, and
found it to surpass anything recommended for
chills, fever and ague. Has taken the place
of calomel, quinine and all such remedies. It
is all that could be desired as a family medicine.
I give it to my children, from one year old up.
Very truly,

to leave Oregon I have authorized j. a.

The marriage of Mr. U. S. (Story) Sheridan
of Roseburg to Miss Jessie F. Lftvenaof Can
yonville, which took place at the reisdencc of"
the brides parents at the above named place
on Thursday last, is well know n to the readers
of The Review. There is a part of the pro
ceedings, however, which took place in this
city on Thursday evening, that were not re
corded in last weeks issue. Story and his
beautiful young bride arrived in Roseburg
safe and sound from the preachers hands on
the evening of their mariaagc and took up
their quarters at the redidence of Mrs. T. P.
Sheridan (Story's mother) who had prepared
an elegant reception for the new addition to
her already numerous and happy family.
The Y. D. Band of which Story is a mem
ber, hearing of the arrival, immediately or
dered themselves out for the purpose of ser
enading ihe happy couple and joining in the
festivities. ; Mrs. Sheridan was as well pre
pared for the Band, as she was for her newly
married son and brand new daughter.
Alter playme a few tunes, the Band were
invited to walk in and you can rest assured
that they did walk tn to the greatest variety
of eatables and drinkables that it has been
youx reporters good luck to be invited to de
vour for many a day. The whole of the
Sheridan family, male and female were on
hand to wait upon the Band, and it took all
their energy and strength to keep the table
supplied, so great was our joy over the happy
event. ' Joe Sheridan paid particular attention
to the spiritual part ol the entertainment for
which'the boys return especial thanks. After
some moreeating etc., and some singing
the company adjourned, each wondering to
himself, as he wended his lonely way home
ward, wether or not he would ever be as lucky
as Story was. I will now close with a little
bit of advice to the happy couple. "The
most smart pangs which "we meet with are in
the beginning of wedlock, which proceed from
igorance of each others humor, and want of
prudence to make allowances for a change
from the most careful respect, to the most un
bounded familiarity."

Drowned at the
Mouth of the
Albany, Or., June 13. Yesterday after
noon, while the steamer Isabelle was on the
down trip from here, she ran aground near
the mouth of the Luckiamute. The purser,
J. F. White, and Sherman McClung, son of
Isaac McClung, of this city, got into a skift
and started to the shore with a line. When
they were within thirty feet of the shore the
skiff was capsized by the line becoming
tangled . The men started to swim ashore,
but the swift current prevented them, and
after being swept down the current fully 250
yards together, they sank, and both were
drowned. iThc captain, upon seeing them
in the water, threw over a gang plank,
jumped on it and started to their assistance
When seventy-five yards from the steamer his
plank struck a snag and was overturned, and
but for the assistance of a man who was fish
ing from a skiff near by, he would have
drowned. : Another man on the boat, being a
good swimmer, threw off his coat and boots,
and jumping into the water started to the as
sistance of the drowning man, and came
ncarjlrowningjiimself, after, drifting with the
current a quarter of a mile.

Editor Review: In your issue of last
week my attention was attracted to quite a
lengthy article entitled "A Reply," signed
"Prohibitionist," the purport of which, was
that of criticising ray opposition to Mrs Owens
Adair's plea, both of which were published in
your paper sometime ago. I read the prohi's
reply with deepening interest. It seems that
the individual is a person of considerable ability,
as the reply wasquite forcible and to the point.
My short article "No True Woman's Duty,"
conveyed in a plain simple manner my opinions
concerning woman at the polls, ho unnecessary
amount of language was used, but, as I said be
fore, I was plain and unequivocal in my state
ments. That there exists a -difference of opinion be
tween Mrs. Adair and myself is quite evident,
and I must say a very marked difference. Of all
ridiculous ideas conceived of her are the worst.
Not only to that letter do I object, but to one
written to the Prohibition Star in which she de
sires young innocent girls to join in and assist
in this work at the polls, sweet, guiltless crea
tures to come in contact with all classes of men
and in all conditions. Will such wonders never
cease? Mast our girls be dragged into the strife,
the most beautiful creatures of all the hand
work of the Creator? Must the blush of shame
mantel the fair check caused by some rough
expression, or some insult coming from the foul
mouth of some debased man? Oh no, it will
never do: Let us hear no mere of this. In tem-
pera'nee I believe thoroughly, surely no one
would object to the entire banishment from our
land of that sincursed sondestroying element
which has for so many years went so for to in
crease the misery of so many of our otherwise
happy homes, I believe in women doing all
within their pow er, within their present sphere
to advance the cause of temperance, but in
this work at the polls they out step the bounds
of all propriety, leave their proper position in
life to mingle with the baser portion of civiliza
tion. Man is material, while woman is nearer
the spiritual, nearer God, and if by her earnest
entreaties, her prayers, her pleadings at home,
and manifestations of her undying love she
cannot reach the heart, and bring him to re
pentance, and reformation . She cannot do so
clsewnere leastwise at the polls where the ex
citement of the day tends to increase his desires
otherwise than toward her, his mind concen
ted upon one thing, his ballot and the exertions
of his influence upon others. The young man
at twentyone considers himself capable of di
recting his own course in life, and following
the dictates ol his own conscience, considers
his mind developed and thai he may now do as
he deems best, and despite the sayings of
mother or sister he follows the course marked
out for himself, by himself. In order to show
my ideas of a true woman's duty still plainer,
we will take for example a young man who has
been reared in a home of refinement around
whose family circle has been thrown the hal
lowed light of Divine love, where prayers have
ascended at a throne of grace, and all seemed
so bright and fair, bidding bright hopes spring
up within the heart of father and mother at the
sight of their handsome boy so manly, so noble,
good and pure. Time passes swiftly away, to
day he is twentyone, tomorrow he will go for
the first time to the polls and cast his maiden
vote. " Before leaving home his mother and sis
ters cluster around him and explain to him the
temptations which will be thrown around him,
the pitfalls and snares into which he may be
entrapped and warn him lovingly, earnestly to
beware. He listens, but yet in his own mind
arises the thought "I am a man, I know what
is best," and he goes his way. Silently each
one prays, the one for the brother, the other
for the son. They have done their duty, if he
falls, no blame can be attached to them, he
has been reared amid hallowed influences, and"
God in his infinite mercy looks down upon the
bowed heads, and sorrow stricken hearts of that
once happy home with a pitying eye of tender
love and compassion. , This is a mother's duty a
sister's j ust the same. They have done all they
could they plead with him but he would not
hear, he has forgotten that parents know best
You may well say 'has it come to this," that our
laws are being made by men whom ignorantand
besotted wretches have helped to elect to their
position, and we will answer it has, there are
men who go to the polls and vote year after
year who do not know their own mind, and
men so hardened upon which the winning ten
dcr smile of some youthful maiden, or the plead J
ings of an aged mother would have no more ef
fect than upon the walls of Babylon were they
now standing. Mothers do not subject your
daughters to such contamination. Young ladies
do not be influenced by a few women who have
banded themselves together to go out and sub
ject yourselves to wrong. Have your temper"
ancc nnions if you will and aid with might and
main in endeavonng to procure the privilege to
cast yury vote for right. When women secure
a voice in thegovering of our nation, when we
obtain Uic freedom from the chains with which
we are bound, when we can retain the privi
lege and imperceptible rights and procure the
liberty accorded to man, then we may rid our
country of this curse; then may our banner of
victory float out over the world and we shall
without endangering ourselves to vice, have
triumphed at least, and succeeded in assisting

When the Prohi. spoke of how ladies could

calling. I am in a sense a prohibitionist but
not such a fanatic as some and my sympathy
shall never rest with that party until such
picas and appeals are withheld. You claim
that a womanly woman, refined,, gentle and
pure would not be a subject to such insults as
I have spoken of only the more masculine

you are incorrect in this as in other statements

who attend such places, arc of course, under
the influence to some extent it may not be. de
tected in the outward appearance but never
theless the demon is raging within and no
matter how pure, how gentle the woman who
endeavors to prevent his, (as Mrs. Adair
terms it,) "falling below the level of brute
creation" is liable to the most harrowing in
sults. It almost makes one shudder to think
of a few thousand women who have the audaci
ty to do such are endeavering to drag others
of our gentlewomen into the ranks, j You
harp upon the women of Atlanta; I venture to
state to you that not one fourth of the sex went
out in this foolish errand, only those who had
a tendency to do something, they know not
what and the thought struck them that this
would be a good manner in which to gain
notoriety. If a woman is not already brassy
surely such will make her so. J With due te
spect to Miss Willard and all ot1r connected
with the cause, I will say to .;.at it re
quires cheek and brass to do th.;. The weaker
sex are . by nature timid and none but the
cheeky will follow in this palh. Home is the
place fur the true lady, her labor k tended
there to make all bright and cheerful which of
jtself goes so far toward preventing the father,
or husband from so throwing himself away.
Attend to your homes ladies if you would en
joyon earth the estimation of your friends
and reap in the final close of life the reward of
eternal happiness. OxsiNI.

Softly falls life's eventide,
Softly as falls the close of day.
Deepening twilight brings the gloom
Slowly fades to night away.
Weary souls must find their rest
Just as Nature seeks repose.
Lovely forms so bright and fair.
Death, their eyes forever close.
Softly falls life's eventide
Sweet release from toil and pain.
Deep, sweet sleep, safe in the tomb
Slumber but to wake again.
Softly tolls departing knells
Falling gently on the car
Fainter, fainter yet they grow,
Life's day is done, fast falls the bitter

See the beauteous brow in death,

She stands with angels 'round the

. A Black San Machine that Work.
Abe Rose is working a machine of his own
invention at his black sand mine at Randolph
which gives very satisfactory results and is
pronounced by practical miners to be superior
to any methods yet devised for separating
gold from sand. The machine consists of a
number of sluice boxes, on the bottom of
which is laid a half-inch board, with anger
holes bored in it as close together as possible.
Over this is a torn iron, between which and
the board is a space of an eighth of an inch.
The upper sluice box or machine is 64
lect long and one foot wide. The sand
after passing through this runs through
tail race cut, and from thence through an
other machine 20 feet long by two feet wide.
From thence it runs bto a receiving box
64x2 feet. The water draws out of this re
ceiving box on to 4 other machines similar to
the 20x2 machine mentioned above. The
cleaning up is done from the lower machines
to the upper, with a small head ol water The
boxes are set with a fall of 3 inches to 16 ft.,
and the more water that can b, ;i, the
better. The most careful prospecting of the
tailings fails to disclose any colors, and the
simplicity of the machine, and its trifling cost
is comparison with others, will bring it into
general -use when its merits become known.
Several of the black sand miners have already
discarded the coppers and quicksilver, and are
working the new method, which saves more
gold at less expense.
