We have just dropped down
among you in n quiet sort of way,
but we wish to assure you that, if

we have no reason to think that it
will not be given us, we have come
For a number of years our eye

We do not come to you with a
view of turning the world upside
down by way of great literary pro
ductions, and long winded edi
torials. We have taken up bur
abode among you with the view cf
making a decent living, and, with
economic management, hope to
gather together a few of the world's
goods that we may be comfortably
fed and sheltered in the rainy
season of life.
Our politics are, have been, and,

The 1899 annual number of the
Oregonian has made its appearance.
It is not necessary that the country
editor should eulogize this mag
nificent number of one of the
greatest if not the greatest paper
published west of the Rocky moun
tains. Few of us can find words
with which to express our praise
regarding it. However it is an
assured fact that it is the pride of
every Uretjon newspaper man s
heart. It shows that the printing
business lives and flourishes out
West; that Oregon is a great state;
that. Portland is a business center
of the Pacific coast worthy of much
consideration; that the Oregonian is
a great paper.

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS.
When you discover that your
boy or girl has a talent in some
particular line, encourage them and
give them every opportunity to im
prove iu that line. Don't try to
whip or argue your children into
some other line of thought just be
cause you haven't a liking for the
occupation they show a desire to
follow. Give them a chance and
all the encouragement you can, and
nine times out of ten you will be
proud of them in your old age,
whereas if' you work them into
some other line, foreign to their
liking, you will in after years be
under the painful necessity of ad
nutting that they arc a "failure."
