A IIATtU WITH Flit K A It .MS,
A shooting match occurred between

which Mr. Banta received a slight
wound in the hand.' Mr. Isaac llauta
and Wife It appears have lived amicably
together until rwent times, when his
actions under the Influence of liquor
became sn unbearable and threatening
us to result In a separation a fw days
since. Mrs. Kant has been living
with hrr parch V, Mr. and Mrs Wil

curred Tuesday. Melvin Williams, who
was in the cow yard when Bantu
tillered the premises, told him not to

plied with an oath that he would go
where ho pleased. A he came into
the front yard, Mr. Williams, who wps
s'.andiu; on the perch, v.rrned him

ecivtd a reply similar to Unit given his

and was dislodged ami ran away after

Lebanon was thrown Into a thror
Wednesday by an Incident which al
though laughable to the spectators
would have proved serious to one party
had he not beaten a hasty retreat. For
about three weeks a young man who
ought to have h!sh ilrcut at the expense
of the State, has been lounging about
town with no other apparent busiue s
then that of planning mischief and
concocting evil. It Is generally under
stood that he was an abettor of the
Bunt i-Willlams shooting aflVay Tues
day. He had in various ways made
himself extremely odious to Ihe public,
but the climacteric jHiiut was not
reached until he, in a written and au
thoritative manner, warned one of our
esteemed cilUens, John Banta, to leave
town under penalty of rough usage.
Anlncenwsl public, on Wednesday,
provided a rope for the avowed purpose
of hanging themlscrtaut. John Banta
opened the play by charging on thv

Montague must lie preparing for a
boom, judging by the way he 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
tees good goods in all the departments
of his extensive establishments at
prices that absolutely astonish other
merchants in the valley, 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.

co.liln moth Is a pure concent rul it-it cf
ettssetlness. He Is a hard drinker, and
the cause of hU cmUrntbiu to Oregon
Is the string; nt ptohlbillou laws of the

among his h!s.rriiplieis. ills habits arc
about as regular c.s a seisnul-hitud Wat

newspiqx'is of Linn county, he needs
a I wait as much winding up.
Hut, with all his faults, be has a few
mleemlng qualities. He Is not cranky
on religion nor polities, and never slay's
up until 1 o'clock in the morning to
practice "The Sweet Bye and Bye" on
a brass horn.
The remale codlln moth Is very fond
of music, especially the Italian era,
and It Is said that the male never k-s
out Is-tween ads to take a drink. The
female Is also fond of ornaments and
fub-dnbs. She will appear next season

the pevple of Oregon want to know is
bow to exterminate them, so we will
giye them a receipt pweured by Dr.
Sharpies, of Eugene, from the East at

for we "have Im-cii told that be gel.! hot

is as follows: Oct two board' and place
them in a horizontal position; j.l.ne
the moth let ween them, then sit on
the board for I suit six hours. What
success the doctor has had with this
remedy we d not know, and we do
not advise our friends to ask hi'iiauy
questions uIm ul it.
The following remedy we guaranb-c:
