Perhaps no paper in theState has argued
more strenuously than the ExTErtrmsK
the benefits resulting from patronizing
home industries and home mechanics;
but whether it is our proximity to the
metropolis, which it cannot be denied our
people like to visit, or because better arti
cles can lie purchased there for the same
money, the truth Is nevertheless plain
that many of our people ignore Oregon
City when they have purchases to make.
This lieing an indubitable fact, we are
driven to take ad vantage of our jieonle's
wrong bv soliciting advertisements irom
Portland. Merchants and manufacturers
of that city consequently will tinil it well
worth a small investment to publish their
wares to our people in this paper.for many
of them, we reluctantly admit, are deter

Surro ;!:; ('as;; ok Powntn j. Last
Sunday Mr. Revenue, from Sandy, culled
on Coroner Knight at Canbv, and infot til
ed him that a man named Wilson li.nl
!ieo: poisoned ifi his neigh I irhood on last
Friday night. Mr. Knight lefl at once for
the scene to hold an miucst, end had rot

son w.s administered witli murderous in

S;::. e the above was in type. Dr. Davis,
who accompanied the foroiier to Sandy,
has returned and gives us the following
facts i.i the case: About two weeks ago,
Wilson had seme trouble with his wife,
and she pieked up her things and depart
ed fr her father's mansion at Albany,
sLkv which time the deceased has been
rut her moodv and low spirited. A short
time after Ids spouse dcpai ted, he asked
Mrs. Long, physician for ihe neighbor
hood, for some arsenic for some purpose,
but she refused to give it to him. A few
days alter this, he came to this city, where
it is supposed he procured it. On Friday
iiiht last .Wilson was fiddling for a dane'e
during whieh a little trouble arose, and in
the melee Wilson received a slight wound
in the neck from a ocket-knife in the
hands of a participator in the row, but
whieh could not have been the cause of
his death. On Saturday e eninir he was
taken violently sick, with every indication
of poison, ami he was taken to the resi
lience ot Mr. Revenue and medical atten
dance called in, but it was unavailing and
he died Sun lav morningat t o'clock. The
oroner'.s iurv returned that Wilson's
death was caused bv poison administered
bv himself or persons unknown. From
all the information we can obtain, it seems
that ho uelilieralcl v committed suicide.

Be Kind to the Snt.vxo::u.-Mr. J. G.
Foster, from New Fra, informs us that
the citizens of that vicinity are lacking in
courtesy and neighborly feeling. From
his account, not one ot them tendered
their services in the case of the Bohemian,
Sperl, who was kil'ed last Monday; that
the family were letc lo periorm tne last
sad rites without the presence of a single
neighbor, from New Era. A word of con
solation or a little seivice in the hour of
affliction, costs but little, and to strangers
in a strange country it shows a feeling of
friendliness, which helps to soften the ter
rible blow which has fallen on the afflict

A Sense of Weariness
is often felt by persons who cannot locate
any particular disease. If they work, it be

mental efforts become a burden, nnd even

ness which is cast over their lives. Hecourse
is had sometimes tostimulants of a danger

abstain from active labor produces no happy
results. Why? The system is debilitated and
needs to be built up properly. Peruvian
