During this summer he has attended

. D. Myers & Co. of Scio, have the con

the O. P. company at Scio Junction, to
be completed by September 1st. The
contract price is $10,000. The house is
intended for the storage of grain. The
Junction is about one mile from Scio
on the farm of B. F. Munkers, and is
very agreeably located for the accom
modation of Scio and vicinity.
On Monday last we did a nice card
for W. C. Peterson & Co., in two colors.
We appreciate the kind regards these

to their business the success it merits.
Advertising is a scheme v hich always

W. C. P. & Co., are thoroughly equip

Ti. N. .Morris passed through town
'on Tuesday last with his steam thresh

twenty bushels. He has quite an ex
tensive outfit, consisting of engine,
thresher, water wagon and seven other
teams and wagons for hauling grain.
Durinsr one afternoon last week he several
cleaned up 970 bushels of wheat, which
may be termed a crack run.
The Astorian hits the nail on the
head when in speaking of the lynch
ing of Kelty in Polk county it says,
the whole wretched business is simply
a ease of cause and effect. Men see
murderers go unpunished; that is the
cause; they occassionally get tired of
.law's loopholes and take the law in
their own bands; that is the effect.
Both are wrong and to be condemned,
but as long as men murder and go free,
eo long there will be lynch law.

On Friday last we received a very
pleasant call from Mr. C. N. Scott, the
accommodating and efficient receiver
and manager of the O. R'y. He was
accompanied Ky Wm. E. Fnjeer and
was returning from an extended tour
throughout the northern part of the
county. They had visited many of
the farmers and we are pleased to know
that all are in the best of spirits over
prospects of good prices for their grain,
and also feel encouraged tiow.thAt the
Narrow Gauge road is in position to
help them out in the shipment of their
grain to market. This road connect
ing as it does with the O. P., will nat
urally have an important say in rates
to Yaquinri, while it has the advantage
of river transportation from Ray's
Landing to Portland, Oregon City, Sa
lem and other points on tne river." We
regard the Narrow Guagt road as leing
more favorably situated so as to benefit
the farmers contiguous to it than any
of the other lines, and we believe Mr.
iBuott will not forget the farmers' inter
ests in his endeavors to secure a liberal
tratYle for the road.

that Is a slow process, aud if we have
