To the Taxpayer of Union County, Oregon:
W'c, the umlcriipncti committee nppoint-
cil by the "County Sent Executive Commit- 1
tec" of Union, to examine and report to
the taxpayers of Cuion County the condi
tion of the Court, House at Union, Oregon,
beg leave to submit thi., our report:
On February 2J, 18S0. we, in :i hotly,
lnaile n thorough, personal uxaminattun of
the Court Houc, at Union, Oregon. We
found a few cracks In the brick work,
which, in our opinion, and from all the
facts and evidence before us, occurred in
the cpring following the erection of the
building, and was occasioned by the joining
of the brick and wood work of the building
and the settling of the foundation
o thu
We further find that these cracks have
not appreciably widened or extended since
they first occurred in the building, at tho
time slated.
Wc further find that some seven or eight
years after the building was oreeted tho
same was thoroughly anchored and secured
by heavy iron rods, extending through the
building, each way, from wall to opposite
wall, heavily flanged on the outside of
each wall.
In view of the condition in which we find
tho walls of the building, and the dotiHe
security afforded by the anchorage referred
to, we consider tho buiidiug in every way
fcafc and secure, and in every way suitable
to withstand the ordinary weal and tear of
the elements and safely accommodate the
people for county purpoes for any reason
able length of time to come.

I'hree-fourths of our people are troubled
with Dyspepsia or Liver Complaint in same
form or other, which by nature of the dis
ease has a depressinginf lucnco on the mind
or body, preventing tlicni from thinking or
acting clearly in any matter of importance.
Indigestion, coming up of food after eating,
dyspepsia, sick headache, acidity of the
stomach or any derangement of the stom
ach or liver (upon which the whole action
of our sysem depends) arc speedily ami af
fectuully overcome by tho use of Green'.s
August Flower. Tho most stubborn cases
have yielded to its influence, as thousands
of letters received will testify. The Im
mense sale of this medicine is another auar
antce of its merrits, (over a millon and a
half bottles sold last year.) So we ask, will
you suffer from any of the above dis
eases when you can have immediate relief
in the August Flower. Three doses will
prove its worth. It is hold by all druggists
and general dealers in nil parts of the world.

A Daker exchange says that the best

Mr. Ed Fallon in speaking of the bene
fits of the O. & W. T. load said that he had
subscribed .f500.fl" toward the subsidy, and
had already received his money back in the

utes to the building of the road. This
statement bhould bo carefully treasured up
for l'utuic reference, as it may be useful.
The Ccntervillo Home Press says of the
Hunt railroad: "The 0. & W. 'i"s. yards
and buildings hero will consist of a turn
table, round-house, depot, water tanks,
elevators, and the main line and branches.
It covers an area of 20 acres. Can any
other place in Eastern Oregon boast of as
arre a yard as tho O. & W. T has at this
pla:e? The water tank is built and in op
eration. The Ashland woolen mills employ thirty
people, and during tho past year they used
moro than one hundred thousand pounds
of wool. They inado sixty-six thuusmd

blankets, seventeen dozen large shawls and
a number of umall shawls, stockings, yarns
and other goods.

Vlrld anil l'ortlent Description of Its i:n.
r'.iuntlliK llrntity.
Uavknna, (Italy,) Jan. 1, 1SS!)
Editoh Orkoon Scout:
ColcbnUion of New Year's day is
quite diilerent here from the manner
in which it is celebrated in America,
or Oregon ; but perhaps 1 am partial.
The climate is to very opposite the
climate of our native country that per
haps it works a material difference in
customs. lUtsiness goes on hero as
usual. It is nothing but a common
day just like any other day in Italy
cloudless, sunny and bright. We do
not see the morning papers Hush with
New Year's sermons nor thu editors
inebriated while the sermon i being
put in the form. Tho "little vicissi
tudes of life" are not rehearsed nor
new and lengthy resolutions adopted,
like in Amerieu, hut the every-dny
routine of work, play, hurry, bustle
and business makes the city, the coun
try, the hamlet, the home nil the same
only in proportion.
Last Wednesday we embarked at
the cosy little anchorage of the queen
city of Italy Venice. Our steamer
was capacious. It was one of those
large, elegantly equipped, mail and
passenger steamers that skim over the
tranquil bosoms of these southern seas.
It was ( o'clock in the morning when
we lifted anchor and stole out of tho
harbor down the shimmering Gulf of
Venice. The wharf was lined with
llshing crafts and freight steamers.
This is a great place for small, but
beautiful, vessels. They are easily
managed anil lit here and there as
gracefully as a butterlly A voyage on
the Adriatic is something in the course
of Italian pleasures rarely surpassed.
The Gulf widens trraduullv. We
steer close along to the western shore,
just near enough to get a good viow
of tho little upland valleys, and ham
lets that sleep on tho sides of tho
neighboring hills and mountains.
The vessel rides like a mermaid o'er
the waves. The blue, unbroken, vast
expanse of gently moving waves to
our left, the long, green waste of flow
ers, of trees, of small brooks gushing
into tho sea, of the distant peaks of
the snow-clad mountains on our right,
the deep and sparkling waters beneath
us, the sky above, make a variety of
beauties on which to feast our tireless
Wo eomo to the mouth of tho noisy,
rolling, bounding little litsch rivor.
Up towards the headwaters of this
stream is one of the noted olive Holds
of Italy, and along its sunny banks
arc some of the best upland vineyards
of the country. The water rushes out
seaward with a vigorous sweep ami
tho feeble dash against the shimmer
ing sea sends a slight volley of waves
hurrying out s.ome distance over the
surface, but they arc boon scattered.
Kavenna, like all Italian cities, is
picturesque. It has long, white
streets. Vineyards come down hero
and there. Tho same kind of goats
roam over the clifl's back a little dis
tance from the sea. Tho same con
stant monotonous tramp of tho
musical beggar, tho cosy littlo fruit
stands, the gentle faces of its maidens
with flowers in their hair and on their
bosoms, the pensive looking inorchant,
all these aro marked peculiarities of
Italian tea-port towns. Olivo raising
is a valuable branch of industry here.
Fishing is carried on, grapes aro sont
their rounds to all principal countries
of the world, and takon all in all
ftnvenna is quite a business place.
In tho year 1321 0110 of tho greatest
sons of these fair climes laid down tho
pen that had brought "Inferno" to tho
gazing eyes of an unfriendly world,
and went to that silent land beyond
the beautiful fields of Italy and "from
whose bourne no traveler returns."
Tin's place will always bo famous as
the city where Dante, one of tho
brightest intellects that ever stopped
into tho arena of greatness, Mckoncil
and died. The very walls teem to
speak yet in tho accents of him who
peered into tho future and read tho
imaginary doom of man. fn tho si
lence of tho night ono can almost seo
the lonely form of that man plodding
dolefully along, muttering the most
melancholy strains that havo ever re
verberated down tho chords of Poesy.
Yes! almost, hut not quite! Wo can
picture his musfctvo brow, tho dcop 1
drawn lines across the forehead, tho
glittering cyo und that vacant stare
that read tho inmost depths of human
nature. We can almost sue liirn lean
for joy wild uplifted hand as ho;
concoived tho idea of totting in em
