of. being- able to raise enough wheat

year for the past three years. Now if
the farmers will raise enough ' bacon

A report from up the valley is to the
effect that the morning train on the
narrow gauge was derailed near Ward's
butte Wednesday. An eye witness
states that when he first saw the train
it was going hop-sklp-and-Jump over
over the ties, about three lengths of a
crow bar behind a Mongolian pheas
ant. It seems to be the general belief
ef the farmers in that vicinity that the
bird which earned the disaster was a
new comer that had found it conven
ient to roost on one of the rails, and
being Ignorant of the schedule time on
this road his slumbers were protracted
too long for his own good and the safe
ty of the passengers. Fortunately no
lives were lost. The "Chinaman"
did not awaken until the drive wheel
had passed over his body, and then
the race began ii earnest. Had the
train succeeded In jumping the ditch
and taken to the level prairie it is
thought the pheasant would have been
run down sumewhere between Plain
view and Woodburn, the slight bruises
he received in the onslaught necessa
rily checked his speed. Has the Chi
naman no rights that the " Mellcan "
man is bound to respect?

Owing to some Illegality in the no
tices of the school meeting which was
held two weeks ago, the board will
call a meeting for Monday, April 7.
Tne proceedings or tne nieeUug.togeth
er with the resolution were In accord
ance with law, but the call was not
specific in some particulars, and there
fore necessitates a second meeting.
Our citizens have no serious apprehen
sions as to tbe result, for all are aware
that a new school house is an absolute
necessity. The news that Lebanon is
to have a $10,000 school house has been
widely published, and a balk at this
Juncture, would be fatal to Lebanon's
frosperity. Be it known that our
10,000 school house will be built and
occupied September 1st, 1890.

As was announced some tltne. since,
we purpose to add new features to The
Expbess at fast as- the business will
warrant, or the evolution of time may
require. The latest addition to this
efncels an instrument .of destruction
bearing the ominous- name "guillo
tine." The name is foreign, but the
device itself is purely Auiericsn; We
have used the machine as a paper
cutter for some vears, but of late have
ground the edge and polished the keen
Damascus blade, and armed and equip
ped like valiant khights of old we
propose to convert this machine Into
the more legitimate use of beheading
"delinquents." Tbe exceeding slow
ness of some people has made the use
of this machine imperative, and hence
forth It will it a necessary adjunct of
this office. Call and examine this
novelty, deposit a small sum with the
manager, and its mechanism will be

then there would not be any more ex

don't there isn't a place in this country
that does, and it needs to be in a more
