Tub past school year has been the most,
successful one in the histoiy of the Wil

is growing in popularity, and will no
douht next year have even a larger at

Now that Salem will tie in a position to
take rate of all the fruit of this tun.. ion,
and that this is also becoming the wheat
market of Oregon, let uh next see what

now languishing in an Idaho jail, gives
vent to his despondency as fallows :
"Stage after stage has been held tip wit h

though all the money in the country was
in the band of toe hankers, tho railroad

in the Willamette valley as on any land
in California, and it is of a lietter quality
here, and crops nevir fu:l here. The
lesson in a very simple and plain one.
Ah as evidence that business ib im
proving in Salem, the fact is cited that
the Statesman iH full and running over
with advertisements. This is a very fair
barometer of the status of business. e
Bpite the e Hurts, and predictions of its
enemies, the Statesman was never ho

Tiikuk ate now ten thousand Chinese

population of the great city is increasing
rapidly. This is a practical solution
of the question. Ttie etfete East will get
enough of the pig-tuils for all practical
and philanthropic purposes very soon.

enthiiHiastic Htudent of the English lan
guage till she met Senator William M.
EvartH. She gave up all hope of ever
mastering it when he acknow ledged an
introduction in a quarter-co'iimn sentence
in which elongated wordB clamriered
and enterlaced like ivy around an old

The Sun Francisco Chronicle warns
miners and others interested in unpat
ented mining claims along the lines of
the Central l'acific. Southern Pacific, and
California A Oregon, or within the land
grunts nf these roads, will do well to
keep an eye upon the lands which the
managers "of these roads are now " list
ing," preparatory to asking patents there
for. A large proportion of the lands so
listed is in "the mineral reservation."
Mayok Hewitt, of New York, does not
proMje to allow himself to be made use
of as an advertising medium. Last week
lie informed a nianuiactu"-er who wanted
him to appoint a committee to distribute
a certain sum unions charitable institu
tions as an advertising scheme, that he
would not in his official capacity counten
ance unv such project. If the manufac
turer wanted to give utiohtentatiously and
not as un advertisement he would see that
the money was procrly applied.
Kam-.m is waking up to the realization
of the fact that the way to build up a
citv iH to build it to encourage the es
tablishment of enterprises that will bring
people here and give them work, that
will disburse and distribute money here,
which will be spent and added to the
sum of our advancement and prosperity.
We can't build a large city without peo
ple, and the people cannot live here on
wind, nor on our glorious climate. They
must have something to do. That's
what we must furnish them as fast as
ever we can, and the boom that is now
gathering will not slow up or stop.
The bicvc.le races alone on the Fourth
of July iu' Salem will be worth coming

also, will Ik a feature that, will be intei

leak out. The committee of .ighi ..b
stantiul Jiostoncse, who went down lo
Washington to invito Kapiolani to come
to the Hub, were gone tb-ee days, and
they absorbed between eight and nine
hundred standard dollars lor the ex
penses of the trip. The bill rendered to
the mavor for flowers was $4,r(H. The
hotel bill of the regal party at the Parker
house wan $2,800. Only one hundred
guests wre admitted to the banquet at.
Mechanics' hall but the liquor bills show
that tw hundred gallons of intoxicating
hevorsges were consumed by the
notables that got cards. Two gallons is

were the big items of expense. There

The story of the old woman with the
quilt which contains ten thousand pieces,
more or less, or tho grandmother of
eighty who can "work all around her
weakly daughter-in-law and carry a rail,"
or the well preserved and energetic dame
of seventy-five who can cook three meals

milk six cows morning mid evening, is
Varied at lust by the sh.ry of a "smart
old man." Strar ;e to s iv, he lives in
Marion county, and not in Yamhill
county. It is related that on last Friday
iiiorniug, at 8 o'clock, ho took his ax,
laul and wedge, went o the timber,

turned home at 4. p. in. 1 lis muscles still
clamoring for exercise, he tixik bis hoe,
hoed one-half acre water melons, walked
to town, a distance of two miles, got bis
mail, toen returned home, not feeling the
leat bit exerted. He weighs 124 pounds,
and is only seventy-two years of' age.
And the Htory is vouched for by the
Statesman and is supplemented by the
remark that is given "for the benefit of
tl'C young men who were born t ired and
no reformation has taken place."
The old man, spry and capable as he
is, does not wish to bite out, and to pro

The American Medical Association is
holding its annual convention at Chicago,
and no douht a great variety of interest
ing questions wil1 be discussed. No
science, except perhaps the law, has de
veloped ho vast a literatne as that of
medicine,and if we are to trust the decla
ration of t ome very eminent professors of
it, no other has made so little satisfactory
progress. The charms of the unknown
and the unknowable are ever before the
devotees of this most noble of all profes
sions, for while there seems to Vie only
tine way of being well, there is an incred
ible variety of ways of being ill. These
afford a ncope for investiuation and dis
cussion which is not found anywhere else,
and the doctors are not slow to lake ad
vantage of it.
There are some subjects, however,
which a'-e rarely touched upoa. The pub
lic has always been curious to know bow
far medical etiquette transcends the pub
lic good, and whether a patient's life is of
more or less value than a principle in
medical ethics. This ouht to be tinal'v
settled by the national convention. It
would also lie interesting to know wheth
er it is not BR much the duty of physicians
to hunt down iniltv memlie'-s of their
profession as it is to bar out those who
have not reached a certain degree of per
fection in text-book knowledge. It would
be g'atiiying, too, for the association to
decide now iar the state mav extend
to a trade union of dociors a power of au
mitiing men to and expelling tiiem from
business w hich has no counterpart in any
other occupation. These matters would
do for a la-ginning, and should be a mere
incident in the excellent work which

Before Fpending twenty-four hours in a
Holland family it is plainly seen that here
at least man is lord of all he surveys and
that woman is a secondary cons: leratio.i-
a poorsecond at that. Tic i'.r: thing- h
served is that no Dutch j.-.-nlh man ' ...1
this word is used adviscdiv w'.e-n v lik
ing on sidewalk w ill uiu.c out "i his a
for a lady; the woman turns out into ;ie
road invariably, and the danger and mn I
diness of the street make no difference.
The male biped keeps the pave always.
The "place aux dames" under-tood and
acted upon in all other civilized c.juntries
cannot be translated into Dutch, there
being no place for it here.
The ladies are principally to blame for
much that is rude and uneouth in gentle
men's bshaviour; they regard a man as
something terrible, and act as if believing
that the masculine community go about
like roaring lions. 1 hey seem atraidto
look a man in the face or they might ob
serve by the ear-extension that not all the
stronger sex are carniverows.
In accordance with the roaring lion idea
ladies unescorted must not pass a club,
and yet frequenters of clubs in the day
time are principally raw youths of an ex
ceedingly non-hirsute appearance, and it
looks idiotic to see ladies go out of their
way two or even three squares to avoid
being gazed at by club habitues. In Ut
recht, the ultra-aristocratic city of this
land, where every other house covers a
nobleman's family, these prim restrictions
are carried to an even greater extent.
The lovely boulevards are a pride to
the city, and it is the fashion, w hen ladies
take a promenade to drop into a confec
tioner's to eat "taatjes" or drink chocol
ate in the small, cosy rooms adjoining
these shops. When a bevy of Holland's
fair ones, intent upon sweetmeats, un
luckily find the room occupied by one or
more of the masculine persuasion, are
treat is made for the Ftreet door, which
looks unladylike and undignified.
loexiiect that gentlemen would p.av
those delicate attentions to the fairer sex,
such as turning the leaves of music, band
ing a chair, &c, as is done in America,
would be erroneous. Conversing with
hcveral ladies and gentlemen at an even
ing party, and wishing to use a book ly-
' on the piano in the hack parlor, I
politely requested a young gentleman to
bring it. The look of absolute bewilder
ment that appeared on his physiognomy
snowed me that m some unknown man
ner I had committed an offense, lie did
bring, it but quietly informed me that
such a request had never been made by a
