Dr. B. Hamlin, of Lemore, Cal.,says
a few dozen Itottles of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy which he sold there cre
ated such a demand for the remedy
that he eouid not well get along witout
it. Those who use it find it so much
suporior to any other remedy they
have ever tried that they recommend
it to their friends, and that is what
makes it so popular. For sale by M.
Mr. Frank O'Neil, of the rm of
O'Neil Bros., of California, si rived In
Lebanon last Saturday. It will be re
membered that O'Neil Bru bought
considerable property in Lebanon last
winter, their object being to build a
paper mill that shall turn out not less
than five tons of paper daily. With
this end in view Mr. O'Nei! has come
to Lebanon and the initiatory steps iu
this great enterprise will be taken immediately.

Montague must Iw preparing for a
boom, judging by the way ho is slock
ing up his Mammoth and One-Price
Cash Stores. By purchasing his goods
in such large quantities he naturally
gets much lower prices. He guaran

of his extensive establishments at
prices that absolutely astonish other
merchants iu the vall'ey.some of them
going so far as to say "that Montague
retails his goods as low as they buy
them at wholesale. The careful buyer
invariably goes to Montague's.
The One-Price Cash Store has lccome
one of the features of Lebanon. As
everything is new and fresh, and the
prices are so much la-low that charge
in credit-giving establishments, people
who desire to buy their goods for cash
naturally go to the corner, where they
do not have to make up to the (store
keeper for the non-paying customers
who, when they can do so, buy on
credit, and who are constitutionally
opposed to paying for anything. Get
prices at the One-Price Cash Store ami

By far the largest real estate transac
t ion in Lebanon was made Friday. J.
R. Kirkpatriek bought of J. M. Cowan
his addition to Lebanon and 33J acres
additional, for the sum of i,0K). It is
seldom that entire additions change
hands in any city. The above transac
tion shows the faith of the purchaser
in Lebanon's future to a remarkable
degree. Ten acres of the acquired ter
ritory M ill be transformed Into a beau
tiful park and will add to our town a
very attractive feature which hitherto
was supposed to belong to cities alone.
Mr. Kirkpatriek has declared his in
tention to make of Lebanon a second
Seattle in kind, but not in degree.
One of the most enjoyable entertain
ments of the season was that given by
the W. R. C. of this place Friday night
lat. The occasion was that of the
presentation of a flag to the Lebanon
public school. A highly-seasoned pro
gramme regaled the large audience
until a late hour. Lack of space for
bids an extensive mention of individ
ual merit. The first on the program
was a recitation by Bert Wight, and
showed rare elocutionary ability in one
so young. "The Star Spangled Ban
ner" by the male quartette was en
cored. Dr. Duekett, Al. Foil is, A. Rob
erts and Prof. Wright have musical
talent of a high order. The flag was
presented by Miss Saltmaish in the
choicest of the "King's English," and
was accepted by Prof. Wriglit in behalf
of the public sehcol in the purest
diction of our vernacular. A song,
-!ear to every American heart, "The
Red, White and Blue," was sung amid
the waving of banners by a score ef
girls. The declamation by Mrs. Cru
son, ''Our Flag," was well rendered,
and showed her to be the possessor of
unusual elocutionary talent. Follow
ing this was the reading of "Samantha
Jenkins' Will" in poetic metre, which
was very amusing and was enjoyed by
all. The entertainment closed with a
laughable pantomime farce and a tat
leau. The Lebanon Cornet Rand fur
nished the music fbr the occasion, and
aroused the patriotism within us to
such a degree that wefelt like shout
ing three cheers for our cornet baud.

Forty Ladies Arrested.
A large company of ladies from all
parts of Linn county and representing
every caste of society were passing
down Main street in Albanv gazing
curiously about as ladies are accustom
ed to doing, when without a moment's
warning they were all arrested by
the sight of the Ladies' Bazaar and
were taken before his honor, II. J.
Bower. Khc1i, and everyone pleaded
guiity, paid cost and expense and car
ried home some of the specialties of
the Ladies' Ba.aar. Every department
of the Bazaar is replete with the latest
styles. The only thoroughly skilled
lady cutter and trimmer in Albany is
connected with this establishment.

v KLKCTltIC ItAILWAV.
Ei'tTon I.FiMMo FtPin'-w:
While nt Fori laml last week I w.-s
very mucli impressed with the great
development that has teen made there
In the past six months, In way of trans
pottstion 13' electric railways. They
have four fine systems now Iu opera
tion and more In contemplation. Why
cannot Lebanon build an electric rail
way to Wateiloo and Pothiville? At
Waterloo Falls the plant could be plac
ed at small expense. A gotnl turbine
water wheel would give the necessary
power. The rails for the road c;uld be
obtained from the S. P. Co. when
they change the narrow gauge to a
standard gauge, and the probability Is
that the H. P. Company would
sell, say six miles, very cheap, and we
could get cars from Portland that have
tevn replaced by larger ones, or we
could buy two or three of tho narrow
gauge cars. I believe that this Hue
could le established and put upon a
paying basis at once, especially during
the summer season. The people would
soon find that they could get to tha
noted Soda Springs at Sodaville and
Waterloo at a comparatively low cot.
Iebanon, Sodaville and Waterloo
could have electric lights, and probably
Brownsville and other jmints would
contract for lights. A franchise could
bo obtained along the county road for
the line, and in fact the whole plant
could be put in very cheaply, ami In
my opinion it would do more to ad
vertise the resources of tills locality
than any oMicr one thing. In the
near future there will probably le a
large hotel ami, tcihai, a sanitarium
established at Waterloo. Hodavllie's
new hotel will soon Ih completed.
The properties of thoe springs are such
that if the people of Portland and oth
er places knew that they could obtain
relief from nearly all the Ills that the
llesh is heir to, why these wonderful
springs would become noted far and
wide, and an electric railway from
Lebanon (the terminus of the S. P.
t'u's Lebanon branch) would have
more travel than they could handle
from early spring to late into the win
ter, and in all probability fill the year
round. With our water ditch an as
sured fact; the O'Neil Bro. on the
ground to commence ojKT.ttions on the
paper mill; the fsiNiO school house un
der way; not to mention the many
other public and private improve
ments going on in Lebanon, surely we
can justly feel proud of our reeord and
when an electric railway i in running
order we will then have the bot. little
city of its size in the state of Oregon;
and if the S. P. Co. oan Ik? induced to
run the old Oregonian Railway line
through Lebanon when it is changed
to a standard gatttre, then Ibanon will
take a rush forward that will as
tonish the oldest inhabitants. They
will either have to fall into line and go
ahead on the wave of prosperity or fall
by the wayside. Who will lie the next
to nsritate "this question ami keep the
ball rolling? Yours truly, B. F. 1$.

. THAT HACKLEMAN WAS'
Giving Away Kid Gloves !
Ilackleman has been over-run with applications for the
gift, and wants it understood that he has not a pair to give
away. The misunderstanding prcsbabhy originated from the
remark of some customer that they were literally giving
giving away ( Jloves at Ilaeklemas'H. Of course the' simply
meant that the prices asked were next to a gift, which is
true enough. Ilackleman sells the
CELEBRATED MATHER KID GLOVES
Every pair warranted or your money refunded. Come and
