The cool sparkling water that nature diet ill1 ,

Besides being an expert ''worker" of
politics, Don M. Dickenson, nominated
for postmaster general, has a. further
and peculiar claim upon the president.
It is 1 elated that when the Michigan
democratic state convention met in
1S8G, proceedings were opened by
pinyjr, in which divine blessings were
invoked on all democrats known in per
son or by name to tho reverend peti
tioner, with tho single exception of
Giover Cleveland. When the prayer
was concluded Dickeinon arose in his
pl.ica intln convention and expressed
his deep regret that no mention had
been made of tho name of the chief
magistrate, and then, with uplifted
hands and closed eyes, ho said : '"Oh,
God, bless with the richest blessings of
thy grace, the grandest of men, that
purest of politicians, noblest of demo
crats. G rover Cleveland." The prayer
got as far aa tho Whito House and
Dickenson is to have a seat in tho cab

The symptoms of Biliousness are unhap

Winter's charms, unlike those of
hUtniuer, seem to freeze up tho foun
tain head of tho poet's versatility ;
snow crystals may possess its much
poetic beauty as flowers, but it is not

tution to examine them, at it is (low
ers. Baseball is "all the go" now willi
our hchool boys. It. is viry comical tp
witness a winter game uf this kind;
sore knees, bruised heads, sprained
ankles and wrists, and a few "bail
words" from s.ome thoughtless youth,
who lias third base within his grasp,
and then receives u fall that lays him
up for a few days, are very common.

W ANNAS! A K ER'S SUCCESS.
John Wannainaker, the Philadelphia
merchant, says the Times of that city
recently spoke as follows about adver
tising: "I never in my life used such
a thing as a poster, dodger or handbill.
My plan for fifteen years has been to
buy so much space in a newspaper and
fill it up with what 1 wanted. I would
not give an advertisement in a nwwepa
por of 400 circulation, for fi.000 hand
bills or posteis. If 1 wauled to sell
cheap jewelry, or run a lottery scheme,
I might use posters, but would not iu-
i suit a decent reading public with hand
bills. The class of people who read
such things aro poor material to look
to for support in mercantile allairs. I
deal directly with the publisher. I say
to him : How long will you let 1110 run
a column of matter in your paper, for
$100 or $200 as the case may lie? 1 let
him do the figuring, and if I think ho
is not trying lo make more than his
share I give him tho copy. 1 lay
aside the profits of a particular lino of
goods for advertising purposes. The
first year I laid aside and spent $-1,000;
last year I laid aside and spent $11 ,000.
I havo dono better this year, and will
increase that sum as the profits war
ran I it. I owe my success to newspa
pers, and to them I shall freely Kivo a
certain profit of my yearly business."
SKIPPED IN RIIOAI) DAYLIGHT.
Jarvis Stone, heretofore considered
an honest and trustworthy granger, has
proven to ho 1111 entirely difierent sort
of a human being, than was supposed.
In a very mysterious and sudden man
ner, he has glided into unfathomable
obscurity, and efforts to trace him by
anxious'creditors, havo proven unavail
ing. Tho last heard of liim was from
Pendleton, where lie sold his team ut
auction. Ho left lor parts extremely
unknown, Ho owes several of our sol
id farmers and citizens, who trusted
him in various ways under tho im
pression that lie was perfectly honest.
If Mr. Slono hud been un ordinary in
dividual, the mere fact of his "skip
ping" would not occasion so much sur
prise, but, when wo considor ho was
"sancliliied," and therefore presumably
incapable of committing such a vulgar
Fin, wo lose some of our childlike coufl

DROWNED IN THE RIVER.
At 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, as
the steamer William M, Iloag was com

David Harner, a deck hand, whoso
homo is in Corvallis, was knocked into
tho river and drowned. Tho men
were win liing tho forward deck, and
some of them wero holding up the
gang plank, ono end of which touched
the water. Just then tho steamer La
tona passed, and tho swell from her
might the plank, tearing it from the
hands of those who wero holding it,
carrying it into tho river and knocking
Harner overboard. The steamer im

Harner, who could not swim, sunk
just before tho boat reached him.

Tho Band of Hopo, numbering fifty
six scholars, gavo a very satisfactory
entertainment on Friday evening last.
Tho piogrtimmo was of a temperance
character throughout, everything en
tirely now and well rendered. Tho
dialogue "Sonso versus License" was
just to tho point, and tho boys showed
they had been thoroughly drilled, or
tho natural stylo of delivery would not
havo been so noticeable. They entered
into tho subject as if they meant busi
ness. The old lady's address to tho
"Little People" deserves particular
mention. Tho littlo Miss dressed bo
nearly to represent an old lady, and
her neat, quiet stylo of expression was
good. The pantomino shows were very
lino, the first scone bringing very viv-
idly to our mind tho effect of tobacco
on tho system in our youthful days.
Wo pitied tho littlo fellow, but it whb
