KETrR.vED.pr. J. Welch, who has
been absent fro;i home for the past
woes, returnedihome last Monday af-
Anottaer Old Cltlsen Gone.
It is again onr painful duty to chron
icle the" death of an old and highly
esteemed citizen, Mrs. Mariam Ckxik,
who was mother of the wife of our
townsman, Mr. A. J. Apperson,- in
whose family she had her home sin e
September, 186U During her decline,
no particular disease manifested itself.
Old age had crept upon her, but not
unnoticed. She had often during the
present year expressed it as her opin
ion that she would not live through
this vear, and during the days imme
diately preceding her death, realized
that her davs were numbered, and that
she was called to go home. Her last
hours were peaceful, and sho passed
away -on Tuesday morning, about 9
o'clock, without a struggle. Mrs. Cook
was born in Washington county, New
York, in 1796. She married in l15,and
in ISU removed to liatavia, Michigan,
and lsXil came to Oregon. Mrs. Cook
was the mother of ten children, Mrs.
Apperson being the youngest. Six of
her children survive her. She has had
twenty-four grand children, fourteen
of whonvare living. When in New
York Mrs. Cook was a member of the
Methodist Church ; when in Michigan
she joined the Church called Christians,
and during the last sixteen or eighteen
vears of her life she has been a believer
in Spiritualism. It was her request to
be buried in a cemetery in amhill
county, near where her son and two
laughters with their families reside.
She also desired her relatives to refrain
from wearing " mourning " for her,
and that her funeral tie plain and with
out ceremony, save to read a favorite
piece of poetry, entitled, '.'There is No.
ueatJi to inose wno live Arignt.
Mrs. Cook was, in her life, kind and
exemplary, a good mother, a fait hi ul
friend, a pious woman, loved and hon
ored by all who knew her. The va
cancy caused bv her death is one that
cannot bo filled. May her ashes rest
in peace. To the atllicted friends and
relatives, especiallj- the family in our
midst, wo tender our kindest" sympa
thies. We are requested, in behalf of
-Mr. Apperson ana ins tamuv, to return
their sincere thanks to their many
friends for their kindness and sympa
thy during their aillictioii and bereave

The announcement of the i-ostponement.
of the Last Crift Concert of the Public Li

will be accepted without le-sitatlon by ev

consulting the interests ot ticket holders
and those d"sinlng to become ticket hold
ers, have not waited until the last day to
make this announcement, but Just as soon
as they became satisfied of the necessity
of this postponement, have promptly
made the announcement. It is unnecessa
ry to review the causes which have neces
sitated this action, as they are fully recited
in uovernor uramlette's card. The p-ompt-ness
and frankness with which the public
have been niacin aware of the intention of
the manager will meet with the hearty
commendation of every one, and excite
such a new interest and confidence in the

Nothing can be more uncongenial to the

The Parker Gcs.-We take jleas j
ure in calling attention of our alley 1
friends to the wonderful merits of tho
double-barreled, breech loading sho
guns manufactured by Parker Broth
ers. West Meriden, Conn.
The highest testimonial- received
from all sections, of the country, and
the thorough test given it in the field
by our friend Capt. Green B. Samuels,
warrant us in asserting that it is the
best breech-loading shot gun in the
world. The simplicity of construction,
the ease with which it can be loaded or
unloaded, the facility with which the
load can be changed from small to
large shot enabling the sportsman, in
an instant, to adapt his change to any
sizea game mat may present nseir itie
ease with which it may be kept clean
its availability to a country wnere noth
ing but muzzle-loading ammunition
can be procured, all combine to recom
mend it to every sportsman who can
appreciate a perfect fowling piece.

due California and Nevada Volunteers
discharged more than three hundred miles
from home. Soldiers can depend on fair
dealing. Information given free of charge.
When writing enclose stamp for reply and
state company and regiment and whether
you have a discharge. Congress has ex
tended the time for filing claims for addi
tional Bounty under Act of July 28, I860, to
January 1875, so all such claims must be
made before that time. Original Bounty
of $ 100 has been allowed all volunteers who
enlisted before July 22d 1S61 for three years,
if not paid the same when discharged.
Land Warrants can bo obtalnd for services
rendered before 1855, but not for services in
the late war. Pensions for late war and
war of 1812 obtained and increased whn
allowed for less than disability warrants

and Florida war soldiers. State of Texas
