J. Put Smith, who owns a ranch

to lose his valuable stallion Waterford

A communication from the Santa
TCosa Republican, from the pen of W.
H. Rector, a well-known Oregon pio
neer, shows that hoochinoo, or spirits
distilled from molasses, is nut an Alas
ka novelty, but was known in the
early days of Oregon as "Blue Ruin."
and was manufactured in this city m
Col. McClure's time, in 184G, when
Astoria was occupied by the Hudson
bay company as a trading post. Rich
ard McCrary, an American, claimed
to be a distiller, and disputed the
right of the law prohibiting him from
following his legitinnte business, and
equipped with a large iron pot, that
had found its way into the country by
accident, and a few home made appli
ances, he went to work and brewed a
vile article of molasses that came from
the islands and distilled it. The re
sult was an intoxicating beverage of
which a small dose produced insanity.

The Literary Revolution.
ellAXUB OK EASE.
This very remarkable enterprise con
tinues to make such progress as to
astonish its friends and astound its
enemies. Its greatly increasing pro
portions have compelled the removal
of its head-qnartors from the Tribune
building to the very large and beauti
ful building, 2w. 704 Broadway, which
is in the very midst of the "book dis
trict" of New York city, and, there
fore, of the publishing enterprise of
the nation. This building, though
six stories in height, 25 feet front and
100 feet deep, is sufficient only for the
offices and retail store of the company.
The manufacturing is carried on in
several large buildings located in other
parts of the city, though it is contem
plated concentrating them soon in one
immense factory to be erected.
Their list of recont and early forth
coming publications are extremely in
teresting to all who enjoy what is
choice&t in literature. The Library
Magazine is unique in both form and
character and although delightful in
the richness of its contents. Of the
books announced, Green's larger His
tory of the English People, reduced
from $10 to SI; Carlyle's History of
the French Revolution, reduced to 40
cents; Carlyle's Heroes and Hero
Worship, 25 cents, and the Bevi3ed
New Testament, which is promised to
be manufactured with rapidity here
tofore unheard of, will attract special
attention. It is worth while for every
one nho has not already seen it, to
send and get an illustrated pamphlet,

J. T. Lady, of Sheridan, recently
took a cartridge in his left hand, sup
posing it to be empty, and attempted
to remove the cap, but it was loaded
and it exploded. A piece of the
shell struck him near the month, cut
ting an ugly gash reaching nearly to
the ear, and another piece took off the
end of one of his fingers. The ball, a
large one, entered the palm of his
hand near the center and passed
through, lodging against the skin on
the back, and was removed by the
doctor cutting the skin and taking it
from the back of the hand. The
concussion crushed the whole palm of
the hand to a jelly.

Syphon Study ljamp.
Hon. I. W. Case, of Astoria, in
placing the new Syphon study lamp
on the market, would call the atten
tintion of the trade to some of its
merits. Its illuminating qualities are
not equalled by any study lamp muse.
It gives a steady, brilliant light; is
free from unpleasant odorjdoes not drip
either when burning or not burning;
easily lighted and trimmed, and is
without exception, the most conveni
ent lamp to fill ever made. Directions
accompanying each lamp. Call upon
Mr. Case and buy one. He sells them
at remarkable low rates.
