A LAND OP GOLD.
Last week the Nugget made
mention of the fact of the oxlstcucc
' of a ledge of gold bearing quart.
, within a half mile of Cottngc Giovc
mid that parties were nt work pron
pecting for the same with the view
of developing it. 11111 week wc
have to chronicle the discovery of
placer ground on the river only n
short distance above town. At
Hancock, a Bohemia miner, and
another gentleman recently from
Colorado,, were up the river the
other day and discovered a gravel
bed that looked suspicious. They
,,came back to town( secured a gold
pan and returned to their find.
Testing this gravel by the panning
process they found many colors of
gold, and in a crevice in the bed
rock near by some small nuggets
of gold were picked out. With
quarts ledges and placer ground
adjoining town, the great Bohemia
gold mining district only 35 miles
away, and the Black Butte quick
silver mine only 16 miles away,
and all tributary to Cottage Grove,
what may not our little city be
come a few years hence?

" Last Friday evening at Martin's
hall the Merry Minstrels played to
A large and appreciative audience.
The band parade and concert on
the street in the afternoon was well

orchestra. The show was very
good) especially in the song

A Hin all but appreciative audi
ence greeted I'rof. Meakin nt Mar
tins Hall last Tuesday night. Af
ter a short but interesting address
by Prof. Briggs, a clever dance and
song by Sadie and Jhntnie Blair,
the speaker of the evening was in
troduced and for over an hour lie
entertained his audience with his
bright thoughts, masterly elo
quence, and fascinating readings.
Mr. Meakin is a man from hit) feet
to the top of his broad and well de
veloped head, and his heart is set
with a cluster of God's brightest
jewels love, thought, hope, fra
ternity, happiness, good deeds, ele
vation of mankind and uuivcrsnl
brotherhood of man. After his
lecture, a few moments was taken
up in a good 9I1I baud .shake and
"scraping up" acquaintance, then
came another treat, in the rendition
of a number of choice poems. In
elocutionary powers the professor
is not easily surpassed and as the
speaker said: It may be possible
that after long years wc may for
get the singer, but we will never
forget the song; and the manner in
which it was sung will leave a

Wednesday evening the ladies
gave a splendid reception at the I.
O. O. F. Hall in honor of the dis
tinguished guest, and in consider
ation of certain courtesies granted
by the K. of P. lodge ol this city,
and inasmuch as Brother Meakin
is a Knight as well as a Woodman,
and by virtue of his pronounced
stand for fraternity in its broadest
conception, the ladies of the Circle
kindly invited the Knights and
their families to the feast of intel
lectual thought. A few fitting in
troductory remarks by Attorney
Medley, and then the champion of
fraternity, John P. Mcokiu, who by
the way, has n happy faculty of
getting acquainted especially with
the sisters without the formal
and oftimcs stifT, introductory
routine, was presented. It was 10
when he closed, and those present
were held enraptured during the
hour and a half he graced the ros
trum. They were nt a feast of
thought, washed down by God's
pure nectar "Love," and the in
tensity with which all feasted in
dicated that in this little bustling
town of 1200 souls there are some
splendid appetites for such delight
ful relishes as the brother sees fit to
When Mr. Meakin had feasted
his audience the ladies feasted him.
The bill of fare was this time de
licious ice cream, cake and lemon
ade. A few sparkling stories,
so ne beautiful readings, mid then
"Good-night God bless you."
John P. Meakin, the Circle,
the Woodmen and the Knights of
Pythias went to their homes feeling
better, nobler and purer and a
thought stole into the minds of
some on that night, at least, that
there was, if only for a few hours,
a United Brotherhood. Who
shall say that the links of a broken
chain shall not some day be mended

At the meeting of K. of P's last
Wednesday night Prof. John P.
Meakin was the guest of honor,
and under the head of good of the
order he made a magnificent 25
minute talk, which went to the
heart of every true Pythian brother.
