clares, aft a scientific fact, that good meat
must, as a first requisite, be very Tat
"excessively fat," as the ieop!e would
say. Nearly every experienced house
holder has come to' this same opinion.
The meat may be beautifully mottled,
and yet be very tough; it was old and
wbb suddenly fattened. Therefore, while
all fat meat is not sweet and tender, yet
there is no sweet and tender iueat to' be
found on the butcher's block which is
not very fat. Pay a little extra for this
fat; it is a good investment A "flunk

with the butcher's knife, makes a fine
broil, and though of inferior flavor, will
nine times out of ten, prove a great card

Joseph Drake, the colored man who
aided in the murder of old man Schwartz
last summer, is to be hanged at Salem
this afternoon. A strong appeal has
been made to the governor for a com
mutation of the death sentence to life
imprisonment. The petition is signed by
most of the trial jury, and by the su
preme judges. The niurder of Schwartz
was one of the most cold-blooded and
unprovoked that is in the history of crime
in Oregon. The old man was umbushed
at night, when he little thought of death.
The aim of the assassins was unerring
and the victim was killed instantly. One
of rthe murderers, Henry, turned states
evidence and is now iu the pententiary
for lile. Drake was tried by a jury m the
circuit court and condemned to death.
The supreme court reviewed the case-and
confirmed the judgment of the circuit
On Wednesday afternoon Its,, by in
vitation of Mrs. Martin, an address was
delivered by Bev. Dr. Eobsrts in the
public schools in District No. One, to all
the pupils and teachers that could be
gathered into one rocm on the question
of elocution or, as he preferred to call it,
Hove to say things." No report of the
address has bo3n received beyond the
fact that it was heard with -attention by
a crowded roomful of as bright pupils as
can anywhere be found. Think this
is a move in the right direction; a gener
ation of better readers and speakers
than the present ought to be raised up
most assuredly, and it can be done.
Many, perhaps most, of the teachers in
the public schools are awake to the ques
tion, but it is one of marked difficulty!
and they are always glad to have their
eflorta seconded and endorsed by men
, whose experience in vocal matters is well
understood by the community.

lumbermen of 'this pail of the state are
admonished by thawy weather that it is
about time to break camp and make
preparations for the log drive. The
rivers, lakes and tributaries are frozen to
an unusual depth, and it will be some
time before they are clear of ice. The
soft condition of the roads, however, will
effectually put an end to work, and that
done in the future will be done to disad
vantage. The mills are nearly ready for
a large season's cut , and unless run to
full capacity the sawing season will be a
long one. The log market of late shows
a shght?advance, -and dealers iu lumber
are confident that prices have reached

George D. Cobb, S. M. Cobb and D.
Lindermau gave their promissory note to
A. A. Webber in 1877 for 178.75. due and
owing him. The note was to bear inter
est at the rate of 5 per cent n month, pay
able in advance, with the express agree
ment that upon a failure to pay the in
terest it should be added to and become
a part of the principal and bear interest.
On June 28, 1881, Webber entered suit in
the justices' court against the notemak
ers and at that time the sum total due
amounted to 1038. Webber did not is
sue n summons until the year allowed by
law for the issuing of a summons after
the filing of a complaint had nearly ex
pired, and he then held back the papers
and did not serve them on the defendants
until last month, at which time his claim
against them had amounted to 12.104.
Messrs. Messick and Maxwell appeared
before Justice Wood yesterday in the
special interestjof the defendant Linder
man and asked that the suit against him
should be distressed on several grounds.
The principal objections raised were that
the amount sued for exceeded the juris
diction of the court, and also that the de
lay in serving the summons had been un
necessary. The matter was argued at
length and Justice Wood dismissed the
suit against Lindermnn, principally lie
cause the amount involved exceeded the
jurisdiction of his court. He held that
as the case now stands the suit is for
12,104. as the terms of the note express
ly provided that in the event of a failure
to pay the interest, it should become a
Eart 6f the principal and bear interest,
e also held that if a plaintiff was en
titled to delay the serving of a summons
as long as he pleased, the only statute of
limitations that would run against him
would be his own concience. -?. .

It is alleged that A. A. Stewart ha3 been
victimizing unsuspecting parties who de
sire to purchase California fruit trees,
dipt. Flavel is among the victims. The
captain orderedabill of choice trces,which
cost 2G0, and were to come from Fox's
nursery, near San Jose, California.
Stewart went to Luelling's Nursery, at
Milwaukie, near this city, and purchased
the cheapest trees he could buy, consist
ing of cherry, pear, apple, etc., paying
for the whole lot about C0. Then he
put on fancy labels, christening the poor
stock with the names of the choice varie
ties contracted for, and delivered them to
Capt. Flavel's agent. The best of the
joke is that Capt. Flavel ib not yet aware
that he has been victimized. ' It is a
cruel jolo to victimize a man iu this way,
as a fruit grower would not discover the
fraud until the trees had been planted
for several years. Porlluiid Xjnrs.

THE HAGIC HA1RPI'.
The Thine Most Truly Kepreseatatire ofthe
(.rest American filrl.
The proof of a boy's mechanical skill
is usually what he can do with a jack
knife: the proof of a. woman's is what
she can do with a hairpin.
Few women tako naturally to ordinary
tools. They use hammers in a gingerly
and ridiculous manner, or they pound
their lingers with them: they put blunt
poiuted nails along instead of across the
grain.and then wonder whv it splits: they
ue screw-drivers principally to pry open
boxes, nnd they think wire-pincers were
made to crack nuts with. But they know
how to manage a hairpin.
"A lady," said an observant gentleman
the other day. ''always opens a letter
better than a man. A man tears off ihe
corner, and then pulls the envelope more
or less to pieces in geting at the con
tents, but a lady draws a hairpin, inserts
ono prong at a corner, and rips open the
edge as neatly, easily and quickly as if
the tool were made for the purpose."
"With this same "tool she can, and
frequently does, button her glove and
occasionally her boots. She cuts the
magazines with it. She pricks mem
oranda when caught without a pencil.
She twists it into clasps for broken jew
elr. She use- it to suspend plaques.
She emplin it to draw corla, and also
to snuff caudles. She inserts it in win
dows to keep them from rattling, aud
uses it to brace back shades that incline
to tumble down. She succeeds, with its
