sSTut Smith, a noted stock man,
who has invested largety m blooded sheep
arrived in Oregon again recently and will
make arrangements for distributing here
among sheep owners, of a lot of thorough
bred merino bucks. He will arrive at As
toria with several head of young bucks
about the first of June. See advertise
ment. SS-We refer our readers to the adver
tisement of a farm for sale on Deep river.
This is the best opportunity that we know
to sell, is that the present owner Mr. C.
M. Stark is about to engage in other busi
ness. jfc"It is not the polished orator
who shapes public opinion, but the quiet
editor, whose word's go out to the public
ear without parade or ceremony. The
orator may please the ear or tickle the fan
cy; but the editor does mere: He satisfies
the mind, and carries to every household a
fund of knowledge. The orator, by burn
ing words and impassioned" eloquence,,
may drive men to a sense of duty; but an
editor if he be true to his- profession, at
tracts men by the presentation of his
thoughts which appeal to the nobler qual
ities of head and heart. The words of the
orator drop from the lips and are lost,,
while the words of the editor drop from
the press, and like coined money, pass for
what they are worth; if pure gold in the
truths conveyed, they pass current every
where. For' good or evil, the editor
wields a powerlul influence. He can exalt
or debase a community. Ho can advance
public corruption. How important, then,
that the editor should be a good man, and
that all papers that convey correct senti
ment to the public ear should receive lib
How Advertising Affects Busi-ne.-s.
The man who advertises his busi
ness, if what he offers for sale is honestly
what he represents it to be or what it ought
to be, is constantly assisted in his business
by those who have been attracted to hirn
and tested him. A buyer has read his
advertisement, and gone to his store or
work shop, warehouse, whatever it may
be, and tried what was recommended.
If it has satisfied him he is pleased and re
commends it to his neighbor, who is likely
to go to the same place and tell his neigh
bor in turn. And thus little rills started
1 y his advertisement flow in upon him
from all sides, and the current of his busi
ness grows stronger and wider and more
rapid, and he prospers and grows rich, all
because strict attention in business he
added judicious advertising. J3ut for this
he might have lingered on in the commu
nity for years and his business would
scarcely have been heard of.
An Editor's Appeal. As the report
that we are very wealthy lias gone abroad
among our subscribers, and has made
them awful slow about paying up, think
ing, doubtless, we do not want the money,
we hasten to say the report of our wealth
is false in every particular. If ocean
steamers were selling at a cent a do.en,
we could not make the first pa3'ment on
a canoe- The, lightning of poverty has
struck us square, and had it not been for
an armful of hay which our devil man
aged to- steal from a blind mule, our
family ould be without a mouthful
to eat at the present moment. Is
not this a & picture, and can you de
linquent subscribers look upon-it without
feeling the coin rattle with indignation in
your jockets. We do not like to dun you
but we must if you fail to take the hint.
