Few people have any idea of the
magnitude of Lebanon's paper mill.
Themill when completed will cost more
than $100,000, and would be a credit to

Not long siuce, Mr. Gross of Waterloo
spread a canvas over the Waterloo

nothing of the humankind that would
do a thing so mean.

Mr. Callahan, of Sn Francisco, one
or the proprietors of the paper mill,

says that Oregon straw possesses the
properties of California straw in an

Calm your fears. The Mongolian has

of life, can outrun the narrow gauge,
dodge chain lightning, is very prolific
and can multiply in the face of a bat

It is very exciting as far as the young

for the Caiapooia and Blue River
Mining company for the last three
months, returned Friday to report
progress. A tunnel seventy feet in
length has been run on one of the com

and while the mine is not fabulously
rich, at the depth of forty feet it is suf
ficiently rich to cause an excitement
among both mine hold rs and those
who have no interests in the district.
The ore becomes richer with every
blast, and soon the question of paying

I have been troubled many yean with

When I sat down it was almost impossible for me
to get up alone, or to put on my clothes, when
kind Providence sent Dr. Heuley, with tha

using the tea. It had an almost
miraculous effect, and to tha aston
