Mr. Minnaker, of Knappa, killed

The following advertisement ap
peared in several newspapers printed in
the Province of Silesia Germany: "My

Prof. A. L. Francis will be in
Astoria during the holidays, and will
be prepared to furnish first class pianos
and organs at lowor prices than ever
before offered in Astoria. He will
fill all orders where first class tuning
and repairing is required.
On the first day of .January in each
succeeding year the average American.
citizen is expected religiously to dis
charge certain duties, such as making
good resolutions in regard of cigars,
stimulants and swearing, misdating
his letters by a twelve-month, yelling
to his friend, '"The same to -yon!" or
"Many of 'em'" and smiling as if the
witticism were either neat or novel,
and making .New Year's calls. From
the last nothing can deliver him. It
is more inexorable than death by
drow ning, for that he can escape, un
less tradition lio, if he were born to
be hanged or with a caul. Custom
exacts that early on the first morning
of the year the males of the family
slmll be dm en into outer cold and
slush by their wncs. sisters and
daughters, who array themselves in
their purple (if it becomes them) and
fine CI uny. and receive the males of
other families. So mote it be.
Forget Not the Needy.
Let none forget the needy poor; but
leave it to thctu to drop a tear of joy
ami thanks for the load which will
lighten their hearts to-day. They aie
always with 11s, and too often they get
away with much too little forthegiod
of their bodies and our souls. This
holiday let the reverse rejoice them.
Let us remember the old, and don't
mortify them by stating how old or
oJu-fashioncu which is worse we
think or know they are. Humor the
young. Jt they are m it, well; it they
are out of it well, what then? Still,
it is the humor of the thing to humor
them aud on Xew -Year's day every
body is expected to be in the best ef
humor; to smile and say pretty things,
and smile again, frequently between
smiles. It is what creates humor,
until the caller puts. And we adjure
all, old and young, reverend and gay,
the fair 'and the other kind, to so
enjoy and observe this many-Nationed
holiday, that when the silent monitor
within each breast shall scrutiny im
pose into the manner of their steward
ship, on the evening of the morrow,
not one will fear the coming of the
The Leap Year Party.
We are compelled to reserve com
ments upon that most interesting
feature of the ay season at Astoria
the ladies loap-3'ear party at Liberty
hall litst evening. We compelled
to do this parti because of the fact
that all The Astoriax employes were
invited, and none were left here to set
the type and print the paper, after an
early hour in the evening.
Go by all Means.
You ill find tickets for the matinee
at the Parker House, at the Occident,
at Edgars, Soveys, Bocks, Dements,
Fosters, Speiarths, Danielsone, Mrs.
Rothes, Dr. O'Briens, Rileys. Messrs.

Nature denied the valley of Ore
gon the much desired customary, warm
southern wind on Thursday, and per
consequence the Columbia became
blocked with ice. The Dalles boat
did not reach the Cascades from Port
land, hence it is evident that the mid
dle river is closed. The Wide West
made the trip from Portland to the
Cascades witnout interruption, but
brought no through passengers. The
lower river is open and the boats make
regular trips to Astona.
