There wns much cause for excite
ment Monday, on account of the pre
vailing Hoods and the number of argu
ments which took place. Because of
the continued rain and wind storms
Lebanon must needs have something
to break the monotony, ho two of its
young men, getting into a heated dis
cussion, went, as they tboijght.outxide
of the corporate limits Jo settle their
" argument," which resulted in a three
round contest, much shed'Jing of blood
and a broken bone for one .f the par
ticipants. Since the above took place
Lebanon has placed a marshal in office
who will not fail to do his duty when

well to 15 nd where the corporate limits
of the city extend. .

Last Friday night the penitentiary

prisoners. They were three In number
and all from Portland. The invoice
included a woman, a white man and a
negro. The woman was Hazel Nelssn,
who was convicted with John Bonner
f the larceny of $-570. She was sen
tenced forjtwo years, and Bonner, her
pal, for three. Bonner waa a member
of the trio. Th third man was Samu

Oregon's penitentiary for a term of one
year. li s crimefwas that of obtaining

Miss Nellie Bly was sent around the
world by the New York World news

New York City, having completed the
circumnavigation of the globe by way
of England, France, Hong Kong and
Baa Francisco inside of seventy-three
days the quickest tripever made since
the dawn of the history several thous
and years ago of the oldest nations
that now inhabit the earth, whatever
may have been done in some former
age when possibly the earth had not
grown to Its present size or when there
were better railroads or . steamships in
use than now.

It is certainly remarkable to seo the
interest manifested in trying to find

Wednesday In regard to the Professor's
time ; some of the girls insisted that
the time was too slow, while the Pro

the orange all the same.
Several lady teachers came out from
Albany Thursday and gave us a very
pleasant call. e expect them back
again in about a month, on the occas

Oa the arrival of The Kxphkks last
Friday there was quite an opposition
expressed to the tone of our correspon
dence. We certainly know there was
no sonorous display of words, much
lw any literary excellence : but we
have not quite assumed (he name of a
"standard author," but we do expect
to discuss the few points from our
school that are worthy of attention. It
Is certainly a poor dish without any
seasoning, and Just so it is with an ar
ticle of this kind ail fuct aud no fancy
does not snit the tustes of all classes,
hence the variety. Monotony should
be avoided. " Cor. T,v?UTK."

Th New Council.
On last Tuesday evening, at the
regular and appointed time the City
Council met as usual. After attend
ing to the regular routine of business,
the newly elected city officers were
sworn in, each taking tho oath neces
sary to qualify him to properly dis
charge the duties of his office, after
which the old officers gladly stepped
back and turned over everything to
the new charge with their best wish
es. The old council has certainly
dono well this year, and have tried to
do more, but failed only because the
ordinances would not reach deep
enough. In the words of old we
would say, "Well done, thou good and
faithful servant, eome up higher." It
is to be hoped that the new officers
will push things as they have been
pushed, and we believe they will.
The President appointed all the new
committees for tho new year, which
was about all the business transacted
by the new council. After the coun
cil adjourned the old members invit
ed the new officers and their wives
and a few of their friends to the St.
Charles Hotel, where, after spending
some time in social converse, etc,, an
elegant and sumptuous, feast was
Am Awfal Death.
The coroner's Jury Friday returned
their findings In the case of the dead
body found a few days ago lying near
the narrow gauge railway track about
a mile north of Aumsville. Coroner
Byland being dead, the inquest was
conducted by Henry Keene, Justice ot
the peace. After hearing the testimony
of the-witnesses and viewing the re
mains they returned a verdict declar
ing the body to be that of a man per
haps sixty years of age and to them
unknown, there having been nothing
by which to establish identity. They
thought it was the body of a tramp and
that he had met death while sleeping
near his camp fire. During the night
a wind arose, and a large limb of the
tree under which he was lying was
blown to the ground. Its butt end
struck him squarely on the head,
mashing it as flat as a board and
spreading it over considerable space.
The fall of the tree scattered the fire,
which communicated to tho desd
man's blanket and then to his cloth
ing, and the leaves that formed his
bed. When the body was discovered
It was destitute of clothing and had
the appearance of being well roasted.
The verdict returned to the ceunty
clerk was in accordance with these
facts. From the appearance of the
remains the jury concluded that the
man had been dead perhaps a week or
ten days. The body, aside from being
mashed and burned, was In a terrible
condition and the sight was one not
soon to be forgotten. Statesman.
Sin Him ! Let Him Go.
The story goes that a certain society
young man, noted for his handsome
bearing and winning voice, accompa
nied a young lady to her home and, as
all true lovers do, lingered yet a little
while at the gate to have a lover's tete-a-tete
with his fair companion. The
night was beautiful, no one near to
intrude, and above all. he loved! Why
shouldn't she kiss him? With true
maidenly modsty 6he refused. He
Implored. She still w ithheld from him
that which would fill his cup of happi
ness. The request was repeated several
times, aud so engrossed did the young
man become In wooing that he failed
to notice the approach of the paternal
step. The old gentleman, who had
been there himself and did not like to
Intrude on the happiness of the young
couple, quietly stepping behind a con
venient rosebush, waited, thinking the
young man would soon leave. In this
he was mistaken. The lover tarried
over the request until the patience of
the old gentleman was exhausted. A
voice the couple well knew aroused
thetn from their happiness in a tone ef
impatient anger by saying: "Daugh
ter, kiss the fool nd let him go
borne!" It is reported that the young
man only hit the ground In high places
in his endeavor to comply with the
old gentleman's request. Ex.
