Boometh. Crater Lake roads, Coos Bay
railroads, water works, woolen mills, with a
few more suggestive enterprises, such as a new
school house, City park etc. etc., will make
Roseburg loom in the near future.
Dental Work. Have you any old teeth
that wont fit, any teeth that needs fulling, or
teeth extracted and a plate put in the next day?
Our dentist, Dr. Davis, in Roseburg is the one
to do it, cheaper and we guarantee as good as
To Remain. We are pleased to state that
Mr. Pague, signal service officer at this place,
received orders this week to remain perma
nently at this station. Mr. and Mrs. Pague
have taken quite an interest in our local soci
ety here and are correspondingly appreciated.
Bad Manners. This misbehavior at
church almost every Sunday is a shame.
Dear young people, you say that you go to the
dance to learn manners, but you fail to prac
tice at church what you claim to have learned
in the dance room. We are sorry for you,
will you desist? r
A Curiosity. A botanical curiosity in a
garden at Earling, Eng., is a rose tree whose
blossoms are entirely green, the flowers, in
fact, being composed of similar leaves to the
ordinary foliage. This is evidently a reversion
to the earlier stags of terrestrial plant-life in
which flowers had not yet become special
ised organs. ;
A Good Word Roseburg held a meeting
on the 14th inst. in the interests of a wagon
road from that place to Crater lake. Wagon
roads are the friends of the people- As the
land becomes rich from crops allowed to re
main upon it, so does a county gel rich by
patronizing wagon roads lor they leave all the
money paid out along them, among the people
Sad Accident. One day this week while
Oliver Vincent of Sam's valley was hauling
wood near his place the rope attached to his
brake bar broke the sudden jar throwing him
to the ground and striking on his head, his
neck was broken. . One of the hind wheels of
the wagon also passed over his body but the
first fall was no doubt the cause of his death.
Deceased was over 50 years of age leaves a
family. Oregon Sentinel.
The Public School. The public school
of Roseburg will be opened next Monday
wilh a full corps of teachers. Remember
that the school is free to all children who are
residents ot this district and are between the
ages of four and twenty years? If possible let
your children commence with their classes at
the beginning of the term. A thorough ed
ucation received early best qualifies children
for the responsibilities of life.

Sufficient funds have been secured to com

, Good Bye Abbie snd Maurice Abraham
start this week for the University of Calilornia.
Abbie lias a certificate from the faculty of
the State University as to his proficiency,
, andoth boys arc highly recommended by the
University and the County Supt. F. W. Ben
son. Abbie goes to take a scientific course,
while Maurice will! complete the Commercial
course. The efforts these boys arc making
indicate that their future will reflect credit up
on their parents and this community. We
speak for these boys as being of good moral
standing, and we have no reason to believe
that they will give their teachers trouble
Take our best wishes boys, for your success.
Bang Went the Pistol. Last Wcdncs
day week John A. Freeman and Win. Bush
nell had an altercation upon Mr. Freeman's
place in Ten Mile about some wheat, their
blood got warm, and it seems Freeman struck
or struck at Bushnell, whereupon Bushnell,
drew a pistol and fired at Freeman. At this
point parties interfered and no damage was
done, for the bullet missed the victim. Bush
nell was fined by Judge Gannon $15.00 and
costs for carrying concealed weapons, and
Mr. Bushnell was also bound over to the
grand jury for shooting, in a bond of $200.00
which he gave, and Mr, Freeman confessed
judgement for striking Bushnell, and was
lined $10.00 and costs. When will civiliza
tion learn to put away the pistol? Will we
never learn anything?
Small Souls. We once read of a man
who was so stingy that he carried water and
put it in his well to prevent it from running
to waste. A woman was in the habit of
washing dishes without soap in order to skim
the water afterwards for the grease. An old
man walked 23 miles to correct a mistake of
one cent in his favor, then walked back and
died from effects of exhaustion and exposure.
We coald enumerate many similar cases but
a word to the wise is sufficient. There are
many whoare eking out a miserable existence
on account of their avarice and penuriousness,
who seem to be strangers to true econemy, or
the enjoyment ol life. They are the reverse of
the spendthrift. Those are extremists. If a
man intends to give a penny for a charitable
purpose, and through a mistake he gives $5,
he only deserves, credit for a penny. L. C.
Saunders Again. For several days, says
the Albany Herald, Sheriff Smith and Richard
son, Saunders' guard, have been aware that
all was not going on as it should with the
prisoner afj&J, and have been keeping a close
watch over Saunders and tramp Jamison. Sat
urday in searching through the straw of a bed-
tick which they had taken out of the jail and
emptied, they found a small saw, which had
evidently been laid away by the prisoner for
future use. The saw was a fine steel blade of
the best make and had been used on one end,
making it probable that it is the same saw
with which Saunders cut his way out ot the
jail in July. Three pieces of wood were also
found, which had been fitted as handles for
the saw blade and showed that they had been
used. Sheriff Smith thinks these are the
same tools Saunders used in sawing out, - and
that he was only keeping them until a favorable
opportunity oftered : to try it again. A few
days ago, the sheriff stated a knife with the
blade made into a saw and small file were also
found concealed in the jail. The officers at
present are keeping a close guard, . ana it is
not likely that the Captain will lie able to saw
his way out a second time.

During the six years since July 1, iSSo, ac

Railroad Gazette, the population of the
United States has increased 9,800,000 giving
a present total of 59,961,000. The same
ratio of increase being maintained during the
ensuing four years, will give to the country in
1S90 a population of 66,300,000.

Chicago, Aug. 29. At-9:15 o'clock this
morning, in the midst o( a heavy thunder storm
a powder magazine belonging to the Laflin &
Rand Powder company was struck by light
ning. An explosion followed which destroyed
property valued a $75,000, besides killing one
person almost instantly, fatally injuring four

At 8 o'clock rain began falling furiously
from immense banks of clnuds. . Flashes ol
lightning were soon cliasing each other across
the whole firmament, until the heavens seemed
ablaze. The thunder was deafening.
Alout 9:15 a flash, "which all agree was
much brighter than those preceding, was fol
lowed by a report thai shook the greater part
of Cook county. - It was a sharp report, but
strange to say, by most of those who lived in
the vicinity of the explosion it was hardly dis
tinguishable from the scries of thunder claps
which had been the order of the morning.
There was a tremendous shaking of the earth,
and articles of furniture, not stationary, were
thrown about rooms as if they were playthings
in giants' hands. Men, women and children
were tossed around at will by the terrible re
sistless force released by the explosion.

Washington, Aug. 31. At 9:55 o'clock
to-night the desks in the associated press
office in the Corcoran building . began to vi
brate in a peculiar but unmistakable manner
that suggested an earthquake. A few min
utes later the janitor reported that the upper
stories of the building were rocking back and
forth, and the night manager of the Western
Union telegraph office made a similar an
nouncement, with the additional information
that the clock on the western wall of the room
had stopped. A telephone message from a
gentleman connected with the associated press
office, who lives on Massachusetts avenue, and
from other points in the city, reported that or
naments on mantel pieces were rattling. The
telegraph operator fo Atlanta a few minutes
before this had notified the Washington oper
ators that the shake was coming, and to look
out for it, but no attention was paid to the
warning, as it was regarded as a joke.
Two shocks occurred. The second shock
was of longer duration and more severe than
the first, and a few seconds later. It wis felt
in all parts of the city, and created considera
ble consternation. Several meetings in progress
in various parts of the city were broken up by
frightened members thinking the buildings
were falling aad rushing from the halls into
THE EARTHQUAKE FORETOLD.
Washington, Aug. 31. -Officials of the
signal service bureau report that four distinct
shocks were felt here. The first began at 9:15
and lasted forty seconds. The second shock
was felt at 10:04, and was followed by another
at 10:10, and by a fourth at 10:30. Prof. Ca-
pen, weather prophet of this city, predicted in
the Republican several days ago that a terrific
earthquake shock would be repealed alxnit this
date. He says that it is possible that there
will be another about 2 o'clock to morrow
morning. When the shock came to-night Ca
pen was in the Republican office writing his
predictions for to-morrow. As soon as the
building began to shake the reporters and
compositors on the Republican and the Post,
which are in the same building, all ran, but
Mr, Capcn remained at his desk in blissful ig
norance of the fact that his prediction had
been fulfilled .
Scvellon Brown, chief clerk in the state de
partment, was in Albaugh's opera house when
the stampede occurred, and it is probably due
to his presence of mind that no lives were lost.
When the panic took possession of the galleries
Mr. Brown stood up in his box and shouted to
the people to keep their seats.
From one to three shocks were felt in many
cities of the east and south, wc mention only a
few Cincmatti, Augusta, Chicago, Richmond

Gloomy Prediction of the Greatest War 0
New York, Aug. 31. The Times' London
correspondent telegraphs: To-night I learn
details of what the world is likely to learn.
much to its interest, wilhin a few days. . The
conclusion my informant draws from is that
the gTeat war of the century is close at hand.
The facts come in part from a gentleman who
dined at Jugerheim with Bamberger's father on
Saturday night, and in part from a diplomat
temporarily here for the purpose of consulta
tion. At the Franzenbad intcryiew M. De-
giers urged Prince Bimark earnestly to pre
vent Tnnce Alexander's return to Bulgaria.
Bismarck declined to commit himself, took
the matter ad referendum and shortened the
interview most abruptly, and a great amount
of telegraphing to Vienna, London and Con
stantinople ensued. Whether M. Degiers got
an answer beforo his unexpectedly hasty de
parture is not known, but the result was that
Prince Alexander was not restrained from
going to Bulgaria.
WAR CONSIDERED INEVITABLE
It is believed to be certain that the pressure
of Germany, Austria and England has gained
lurkey over once more, and that tne porte
will authorize Alexander as tributary prince
to enter Macedonia, subdue it and incoiporate
it as part of his dominions held under the porte
with a view of the eventual formation of the
kingaom 01 unrgana, vgainst this plan is
set the practical certainty that Russia will at
tempt to occupy Bulgaria, w hen she w ill be
resisted by Turkey, Roumania, Bulgaria, and
Austria. This will enable Germany to hold
aloof, keep France in awe and satisfy the
kaiser, whose scruples have long delayed a
collision between the Teuton and the Musco
vite. My lniormant lays great stress upon
the strength and sufficiency of these scruples
but believes the kaiser, . in wrath at " the
piratical indignity offered Prince Alexander,
has consented to let Austria and Turkey un
dertake the task of chastisement. , '
Short and heated diplomatic work is com;
ing. tngiand is believed to be ready to
assume the lead, and it is far more probable
than U was Saturday that evidentually she will
take a band in the fight. It is a serious fact
that tbejmost trusted men in the English for
eign service believe lo-nigltf that war is foevi
table. Two war correspondents on London

A Oeutle Stimulus.
Is imparled ( to the kidneys and bladder by
Hosteller's Stomach Bitlters, which is most
useful in overcoming torpidity of these organs.
Besides infusing more activity into them, this
excellent tonic endows them with additional
vigor, and enables them the better to undergo
the wear and tear of the discharging function
imposed upon them by nature. MorPov'er, as
they are the channel for the escape of certain
impurities from the blood, increase their u?e-
fulness by strengthening and healthfully stim
ulating them. In certain morbid conditions of
these important organs, they fall into a slug
gish slate, ' which is the usual percursor of
disease What then can be ol creater service
than a medicine which impels them to greater
activity when slothful? No maladies are more
perilous than those which affect the kidneys,
and a medicine which averts the peril should
be highly eslccme J.

Corvallis society was much agitated on Wred
nesday by the announcement f the approach
fog nuptials of Mr. Wah Yo and Miss Gip Lee,
of the Celestial Empire of China. The bride
came from Portland on the noon train and
was carried in a ctosely covered hack to the
store of Jim Westfall, where the ceremony was
to lake place. The coming of the bride was
greeted by the popping of 'fire crackers and
bursting of bombs; for which; the gathered
friends of the couple had obtained a special
dispensation ' from Marshal Pygall. Two
bridesmaids assisted in taking the bride, closely
veiled, from the vehicle and conducting her
into the house. The ceremony was announced
to take place in the evening at 9 o'clock.
Before 5 o.'clock all the Chinamen in town had
gathered in adjoining rooms to partake of the
feast prepared in honor of the occasion. A
Leader reporter got admitted to the festivities.
round tables loaded with chicken
rice and rats, and innumerable viands, were
the happy revelers. A curious game was in
progress at the tables. Two Chinamen would
throw out their hands in a series of quick ges
tures, keeping perfect time, calling out in
Chinese something like "sop yo ya he." and
opening and closing the fingers. The game,
evidently, was to make no mistake in opening
the right finger. When one made a mistake
the penalty was for him to take a drink of
iquor out of a tiny cup I suppose the hard
hip of the penalty lay in the small amount ol
liquor such a cup would hold.) One fellow
got "stuck' so often as to lead to the sunposi
tion that he enjoyed it. At the appointed
time, the ceremony of the marriage began in
the presence ot a crowd of people. The bride
knelt upon the floor in front of the groom and
a lively dialogue was carried on between them,
two bridesmaids joining in the chatter. Then
the bride threw a key to the happy lord which
he caught on the fly, and they were man and
wife. The lady was hurried to her apartment
and the groom went to the door and fanned
This reporter, in the forenoon, by invitation
went through the rooms which are to be the
future home of the newly wedded pair. They
were decorated with vases of artificial flowers,
agd images of lovers hanging about in various
stages of "goneness." The bed was enclosed
wilh white curtains and a teestcr of linen over
head. The coverlid was finely cmbelished,
and betokened the wealth and social standing
of the parties.
The festivities ended with the firing of bombs
and a sweet serenade by the Corvallis cornet
band. It is said the bride cost her husband
three hundred dollars, and she was only fifteen
years old. The frolic must have cost that
much more. Thus ended the greatest social
event of the season. Benton Leader
Robert Bogges, of Deer creek was born in
Hairison county West Virginia, October 12th
1823, and departed this life August 25th 1886
aged nearly 63 years. The disease causing
his death was cancer of the stomach. The
subject of this sketch was never married. He
had one brother, Thomas, and one sister,
Mrs. Sam Robinson of San Diego California,
and one cousin in Albany Oregon, Edwin
Robinson, these were all the relatives 4hc had
in this country. Robert and Thomas formed
the Bogges Bros, firm, and they lived for
many years together, and when Thomas was
married in 1S68, Robert slill lived and consti
tuted one ol the household until the day of his
death. The funeral services were largely at
tended, and were conducted by Revs. J. R.
N. Bell, W. A. Willis and W. A. Smick. The
funeral sermon was preached by Rev, J. R.
N. Bell. Thus was laid to rest one of Doug
las county's best citizens. A man of integrity,
probity and genuine bearing, which made him
one of earth's noblemen. "He expressed his
desire to die and be at rest. The vacant seat
around the fireside will not be filled. Hope
