A "Word to Patron.,
We arc "ever so much obliged" to
those of our patrons who have so
promptly responded to our calls for
sums due this office on account. We
are in the most urgent need of money
and at no time, in the history of
The Astoriax, have such favors been
so gratifying. Te hope that each
individual who may receive our polite
request will duly appreciate the mo
tives which prompted it, and their re
sponses will be equally as gmtfying.
Resolution or the Council.
The following resolution was adopted
by the Common Council of the city of
Astoria Feb. 19th, 1879.
Resolved, That the chief of police be
required to notify all persons living
in the vicinity of the family in which
a death has recently occurred by dip
therca to fumigate their premises and
take all necessary and proper means
to prevent the spread of that terrible
scourge of children from spreading
among us, and that the authorities
and settons of all the churches be in
formed that it would be unsafe and
prejudicial to the health of the city to
permit their churches to be used for
purpose of holding burial services over
any person who dies of diptheria, and
warning all persons from running the
serious risk which they otherwise
would incur, by attending any funeral
service held over the body of a person
dying from that disease.
By order of the Common Council.

Fifteen years ago diptheria enter
ed the family -or William Gerhis. of
Berks county, Pennsylvania,- and
carped off five children in two weeks.
Since then sin more children have
been born. Several weeks ago dipthV
eria visited the family and again five
children were carried off, the eldest,
a boy of twelve, alone escaping.
Last week Mr. H. Fisher, of
Roseburg, received a small box
through the postoffice, marked "C.
O. D.," $25, the charges for transpor
tation being $2 50 more. Fisher paid
the bill entire, and found that a firm
j.in New York had sent him a cigar box
tilled with worthless -stone, and that
he had been badly bilked. He was
unable to recover his money.
Chico is in a ferment. Some fiend
has introduced there a game known as
"All Jacke." The Record says its
votaries are many, and its victims
counted bv the score. Its immediate
effects are a disposition to kick the
table, over, and a desire to kill the peg
engineer. If indulged in to any extent
it produces partial paralysis of the
brain, followed by general dementia.
A commission of "lunatico inquirendo"
is now sitting upon the case of a vounr
man whose reason was dethroned in
an insane attempt to keep track of the
suit. His relative memory, disciplined
by the defferential and integral cal
culus, held out till the thirteenth card
proved to be the seventh, and then
vacated the throne. Hopeless imbe
cility has succeeded, all efforts of Jiis
friends proving .unavailing.
