Olde Folkes' Concerte.
In spite, of the rain that fell so unceas
ingly that the hearts of the most hopeful
were filled with forebodings, a large.intel
ligent and appreciative audience greeted
the "Olde Folkes' Concerte," in Pope's
Hall last Tuesdey evening. Tli concert
opened with "Auld Lang Syne," sung by
seventeen voices: Misses Iena Kershaw,
Annie Mvers, Mrs. J. G. Stevenson, Mrs.
E. Ij. Eastham, Mrs. D. I!. Gray, Mrs.
F. S. Dement, Mrs. J.W. Sell wood, Mrs.J.
W. Meld rum, Mrs. M.A.Stratton ; Messrs.
J. G, Stevenson, Win. Pope, Hiram Coch
ran, Mr. liestow, Henry Fancher, 11. Ij.
Kelly, Dev. J. W. Sell wood, W. C. John
son; Mrs.Ollie Albright presided at the
organ. It was rendered admirably, the
time being perfect and each part well bal
anced. The sentiment and melody, though
old, is ever new, and wakened sacred
memories of long ago in many a heart, as
evinced b3' the enthusiastic applause given
at its close.
' M y G ra n d m a 's Ad v ice "was very 8 w eet
lv and coquetishlv sung by "llelinda Din
widdy" (Mrs. J. W. Mehlrum), who dis
tinguished herself several times during
the evening. r
The programme throughout was good,
the songs and choruses being on the most
part the" work of old composers, and there
fore difficult to execute, and more dignifi
ed in expressions than eotnrxjsitions of the
present day. We would like, for the ben
efit of those who were not present, to take
each part separately and give it the praise
it deserves, but time will not permit. Wo
must, however, make particular mention
of the anthems, "Jerusalem, my Glorious
Home." "Strike the Cymbals" and "Easter
Anthem," and we think all judges of
music will sanction us in saying that they
have never lieen rendered better this side
of the Pacific; the bass lieing full and
strong, the soprano rich and clear, the
alto pure and smooth, and the tenor firm,
though weakened somewhat by the una
voidable absence of one of the singers.
Mr. W. C. Johnson won laurels by his
rendition of "When George the Third was
Polly Kemp (Mrs. Strattonjcalled forth
the first encore to "Within a mile of Etlcn
boro town," which she sang delightfully,
the ower and clearness of Tier voice being
shown with tine ettect upon the upper G
in the last measure, which she reached
and held with great ease.
Tho second encore was won by" Dorothy
Doolittle (Mrs.Sellwood) in the old negro
melody "Nelly lUy," to which she' re
sponded by favoring the audience with a
verso of the " East Rose of Summer,"
which was well rendered and elicited
rounds of applause.

pathetic song, "My Old "Wife and I." He
has a rich, bass voice, and his actions and

Colly Kemp" and "Dorothy Dooluttle"
gave the two beautiful solos "Vale of
Chamouni" and "Kathleen Mavourneen"
well, considering tho fact that they are
both dillicult to execute ami the voices
tired with so much chorus singing pre
viously. "Old Hundred" closed the evening's
entertainment, which has been voted to
lie the richest musical treat Oregon City
has ever enjoj'ed.
Too much praise cannot be bestowed
upon the conductor, Key. J. W. Sell wood,
for upon him rested the responsibility of
the evening. The success of the concert
proves Wyond a question, that he isa mas
ter of music, and also ihat there is talent
of no ordinary merit in our midst
The cost unies of both ladies and gentle
men were tasteful and inn using, some ol
the former laying claim to some share of
antiquity. We would like to give our
impressions of each, but dare not risk the
displeasure of the ladies by comparisons.
The receipts at the door amounted to
!?!! 70, which will be handed over to the
Aid Society of the Congregational Church.
It was unanimously voted by the singers
to repeat the concert in two weeks, with a
change of programme, for the benefit of
the M. E. Church

Democracy at Fizzle villc.
Democrats at par with Greenbaekers, in
defenseof the etmrt being made at Stubbs'
store to organize a Greenback club, have
rushed to the front like solid Muldoons,
and bid defiance to the man Hutton (who
forgot his little piece and had to go home
and rehearse it again). Last Saturday, the
Ifith, the four corners at Fizzleville were
iu a state of considerable excitement. A
Democratic club was organized with W.
If. Vaughan as president and Samuel En
gl e secretary, aiid a writ of incorporation
wa i&sued as toJJows, to-wit:
"The resolutions as expounded in Vir
ginia and Old Kentuek some time in the
year. one bv Thomas Jenerson and James
Madison le adopted."
A committee of five was chosen to draw
up resolutions for tlie ciuh. It was consid
erable trouble lor the president to persuade
xne memners that everything was clear as
muci. 001110 contended that the programme
should contain something about the silver
bill; soRje thought they might be called
upon to fight it through' and thai would
neverdo.while others feared that it would
injure their political standing. They were
assured by the president that there was
no danger, but the ISourbons of Fizzleville
were not going to lose their standing and
they decided to stand by Jefferson..
So while in peace and security they rest,
They'd join the resolution:
Idle still bv Providence they'd be blest,
l'o guard the constitution.
They would ride Hutton on a rail.
Send Vaughan forthetn to legislate:
And right on the head tiiov-M Uit u .,..;
If the Democrats could carry the State.'

I will sing the road to bliss above
The different ways in which we move,
To gain a heavenly seat.
Each stupid sect, in error bound,
Think they the only road have found,
To Paradise complete.
The Catholics, absolved by Pope, ,
Think heretics deserve a rope,
Or else a burning name;
Do penance at the Virgin shrine,
Feel purified from every crime,
And claim a saintly home. .
The Church of England pav their tythes,
Sav long prayers with half-closed eyes,
" And bless "their king and queen.
Saying, we will be nobility iu bliss,
And, look on that Church" and on this
As vulgar, low and mean.
The Presbyterians sourly scowl,
Denouncing all the guilty souls
Who are not saved by fate,
Saying, we are the elect and yon the datn'd,
Hell like a wallet will be cramed
With God's own reprobates.
The P.aptists, washed In puddle clean,
Join Presbyterians in their scream
Against the non-elect,
Saying, repent and be baptised betimes,
Nor sprinkle infants black with crime,
From Adam and his mate.
The Methodists, to madness drove,
Howl dreadful on their road above,
Denouncing heavenly ire,
Sayiug, repent or God will in a trice
Shake you o'er hell like squeaking mice
Suspended o'er the fire.
The Universalists will glide
To heaven as smooth as schoolboy 's ride
Down hill on ice and snow.
Saying, hurrah, boys, we'll all be saved,
For hell means nothing but the grave,
And there's no future woe.
The Quakers smoothly glide along,
Thinks cash in trade is fairly won.
And all tho world are knaves:
I?ut he is honest all his life,
No money gained by war and strife,
Rut by the Spirit saved.
The Shakers, dancing at the gate of bliss,
Calls mother Ann to wait
And hear his heavenlv love:
Sayiug, I've left tho world and all below,
Satan ami his works you know,
To dance with 3 011 above.
Amid such clamor who can tell
The road that leads to heaven or hell,
Or know we shall be saved ?
My counsel is to live alone,
And avoid religious strife;
Mind no one's business hut your own,
Rut lead a virtuous life.
Atchi Amateurs. The Atchi Amateurs
were not greeted with a large audience
last Saturday evening, owing to the in
clemancy of the weather. The entertain
ment was given for the benefit of the fire
department, and we are sorry to say that
it was not a financial success". The curtain
rose on a play in two acts entitled "The
East Loaf," with the following cast of
characters: Mark Ashton, C. M.Tnskeep ;
Cahb Hanson, Frank Col lard; Harry
Hanson, Fred Greenman; Dick Hustle,
F.l (.Char man : TomChiibbs.M.H.Rhoads ;
Mrs. Ashton, )iss Minnie Co-hran; Lillie
Ashton, Miss Ella Khoads; Patty Jones,
Miss Ida Calilf. It was an interesting
play, and was heartily enjoyed by the
audience. Next in order was a tableau,
" War Declared and Peace Restored."
" Atchi," a farce, came next "with tho fol
lowing cast of characters: Lord Adonis
Fickleton, ('. M. Inskeep: Sir Marty n
Mayduke, M. It. Khoads; Lnrkius, Fred
Greenman; Lady Mayduke, M ws Radio
Larocquo: Emily HaVgrave. Miss Ella
Khoads. This was a 'side-splitting" farce,
and caused much ir errinicnt. Tlie enter
tainment closed w ith a firemen's tableau.
Considering that most of the players w re
making their first appearance on the stage,
they acquitted themselves in a creditable
"Pass Him AiMU.ii."-Underthis head
the Pallas Itcmizer of the 15th tells of the
doings of one Dr. T. F. Smith, who has re
sided in that place for about two years.
After giving several instances of wrong
doing on his part, the Itcmizer says : ".lie
crowmng act ot his infamous course was
brought to light last Monday hv tho con
fession of a ruined girl to a grief-stricken
parent. Fearing to meet the wronged par
en', and no doubt having a guilty con
science, he at once, on hearing of tlie dis
closure of his course to the parent, betook
himself hastily to parts unknown, and is
now a fugitive from the vengeance of his
people." The base scoundrel was in Port
land last Sunday, and we are informed
that he was bragging of his exploits at
Daila. The penitentiary would be too
good for lellows of his stripe, and the irate
if "t her would l-e justified in putting a load
of buck-shot in his foul carcass.

Pills are the best of all purgatives for family
use. They are the product of long, laborious
and successful chemical investigation, and
their extensive use, by physicians in their
practice, and by all civilized nations, proves
them the best and most efTecfual purgative
pill that medical science can devise. ITeing
ourely vegetable, no harm can arise from
their use. In intrinsic value and curative
powers no other pills can be compared with
t hem, and every person knowing their virtues
will employ them when needed. They keep
the svstem in perfect order, and maintain in
healthv action the whole machinery of life.
Mild, searching and effectual, they are speci
ally adapted to the needs of the digestive
a pa rat us, derangements of which they pre
vent and cure, if timely taken. They are the
best and safest physic to employ for children
and weakened constitutions, where a mild,
but effectual cathartic is required. For sale
by all druggists.
Xo other medicine in the world was ever
given such a test of its curative qualities as

million four hundred thousand small bottles
of this medicine were distributed free of charge
bv druggists in this country to those afflicted
with Consumption, Asthma, Croup, severe
Coughs, Pneumonia and other diseases of the
Throat and I.ungs, giving the American peo
ple undeniable prjof that German Syrup will
cure them. The result has been that druggists
