Lebanon had a distinguished visitor
last Friday in the person of Capt.
Connor. The Captain headed an
expedition that was sent to Africa
in search of Stanley when it was
thought that the great explorer was
lost. He was sent far up into northern
latitudes at a late date, and is a man
who has seen a good deal of the world.

A new-comer from one of the storm

broke down under the loads of fruit."

Several men and teams are at work
this week clearing the ground for
Kirkpatrick's horticultural park.
Anyone unacquainted with the plans

however, that Isebella Horticultural
Park when completed will be an
ornament to the place and will rank
second to few parks in the State.
Wanamaker's new red stamps have
been the occasion of a good deal of

I We were shown a lone- letter from a
Dakot-,man last weekin which the
writer, after bewailing thelijrht crops
for the past few years, describes a S3 3
tem of irrigation as practiced in his
section of country, and asks our opin
ion in regard to this aitiftcial mode of
raising corn, wheat and potatoes. Wit'i
no intention of being rude or uncivil,
we will say that we know nothing
whatever about irrigatl in beyond
sprinkling a few house plants, and we
hope that we shall never live In a coun
try that will compel an increase of
knoyvledge in this respect. We have
been fortunate enough to live in a
country where the "early and latter
rains" come with the regularity of the
tid-.-s, and where the kind heavens pre
side over a system of irrigation that is
both natural and satisfactory.

"Soon after the great flood, at a time

Remedy. As soon as it became known
that I had the medicine for free distri
bution, there liegan a jrreat run on
it, which continued until it was about
all gone. Every one, so far as I beard
from them, testified to Its virtues de
claring It the best medicine tor the pur
pose they had ever used. Those who
got it shared It around with their
neighbors, so that I am confident it
was productive of great good. We
used some of it ourselves and found it
not only an excellent medicine for
diarrhoea, but for all kinds of pain and
uneasiness in the stomach and
bowels. It has been regarded as the
best medicine known here for the di
seases it is recommended. For sale bv

If you wish to regale your olfactories
with something more delightful than
"Jockey Club" or the scent of roses,
fire the ancient earbage of some back
yard. Such a fire occurred in a paral

sanctum and separates the right and
left nostrils, last week; and anyone
hayiug the least knowledge f geogra
phy knoyvs that this was a trespass.
Ve remonstrated against such whole
souled generosity on the part of the
fumi!rator, but remonstrance only
added weight and variety to the fumes
which redoled upon "the desert air"
all the fragrance of the poet Gray's fa
vorite blossom. Had we been infected
with smallpox or yellow fever we
should hsve borne the fumigation with
the patience and fortitude of a martyr,
but we were not thus infected. We

the law would tolerate this atmospheric
alloy, and that condition is known
only to the buckskin tanner. The
smoke occurred ten days ago, and since
then we have received letters from
boards of health in four adjoining
States inquiring about the progress of
smallpox .in Lebanon. Ir we could
have bartered our fifth sense for a second-class
ticket on some pack train,

RECEPTION TO PROF. TOKBET.
A reception was given Prof. David
Torbet, the new principal of Santiam
Academy, Wednesday evening. The
reception parly met at the residence of
Jos. Elkins and marched In a body to
the Academy.headed by Col. C. li. Mon
tague. After the formal introduction
of the larjce crowd and the usual grat
ulatory exercises, Intieh was served, in
which all indulged most heartily. F
lowing the repast the company were
entertained by some choice music, and
a general social time was had. Col.
C. B. Montague, chairman of the board
of trustees f the Academy, extended
a cordial welcome to the Professor and
his estimable family. The Colonel
stated the objects of this institution
and its prospects for the future. He
briefly reviewed the history of the
school, and pointed with pride to the
scores of men and women of more or
less distinction whose names were in
timately associated with Santiam
Academy. Prof. Torbet, iu his reply
to the address of welcome, briefly re
vieyved his yvork in the past and spoke
of his hoes for the future. He showed
the importance of higher education,
and briefly outlined the work which
he prop-toes to do. It yvas ascertained
at the close of the exercises that there
were present representatives from four

White Sulphur Springs.
Sometime during the past three
months'! some springs were discovered
on land belonging to George" Frost,
living some six miles east of Scio on
Thomas creek, that upon examination
proved to be etronjrly impregnated
with sulphur. Last Sunday afternoon,
by iuvitation of P.O.Smith we ac
companied him on a visit to them.
We found several springs, from two of
yvhich the water was flowing freely.
One of these tasted very strong of
sulphur. Several persons who have
drank of the waters of the white
sulphur springs at Ashland, say this Is
equally as good a spring, and that the
water Is as strong of sulphur. Who
knows but what we are to have a great
summer resort near us one of these
days. If the owner would erect a fine
hotel and bath houses, and charge four
or five dollars a day board, rich invalids
would probably think Its waters un
surpassed in health-restoring qualities.
And they might be right, too, for it is

ONE NIGHT IN A BAK ltOOM.
While passing the Royal saloon a
few evenings since, we noticed the pro
prietor had placed a couple of new
doors in position. Our duty ns a neyvs-
puper coi respondent required that we
should note all improvements, but hav
ing rend so much In the papeis about
the character of saloons and their de
moralizing effect, we hesitated about
entering the place; but duty out
weighed all other considerations. We
resolved to do that duty or fall by the
wayside. But we were not going on
such a dangerous mission unprepared.
If any desperado of tho Wild Bill
stripe should attempt to force us to
drink at the muzzle of a pistol, we did'itt
propose that he should get the drop ou
us. Accordingly we proceeded to load
our pistol, which, by the way, Is an
old-timer of large calibre. First we
put in a handful of blasting powder,
on top of which we rammed a half
sheetof the "Fire and Hammer." This
would enable us to get religion enough
into a desperado to limber him up and
make him soft and pliable and mors
susceptible to impressions. At this
jtolnt we discovered that wo were out
of bullets, and for want of something
better, we put in four shirt buttons,
two copper rivets and several small
screws. We were now prepared to
make a cowboy think that he had
woke up a full-grown button factory.
So we proceeded on our way to the
saloon. Upon reaching the door yve
paused a moment, and the terrible
words over Dante's Inferno came flash
ing through our minds ("he who en
ters here leaves hope behind"); but
duty urged us on. So leaving Hope
behind and the sturup of one of Mox-
ley's 5-cent. cigars, we examined our
pistol to make sure that the buttons and
screws had not fallen out, we pushed
the door open nnd boldly entered.
The conversation ceased for a mo

by Wrestletown Pete, who was telling
Skinney how ho traded a black dog
and an old saddle to the man on the
hop ranch for a sack of plums and an
order on the drug store for a bottle of
liver regulator. Smoke House Mike
was trying to convince the June Bug
that the west aide of the new bridge
run exactly through the center of Jo,
Sawyer's kitchen. Near the door were
two Calapooia miners who had busted
"King Solomon," scandalized "Queen
Sheba," had no 'Confidence'' in the
"Narrow Gauge" or the "Flying
Dutchman." One of them remarked
that if "Paddy Ryan's" " Yellow
Jacket " would lit the "Times," that
"Jumbo's" "Ijtst Chance" would
make a devilish 'Toor Man" of "Red
Cloud." The other replied that the
"Golden Era" would come on "Big
Monday," and then we could raise the
"Royal Standard" and the "Union
Jack" in "Brownsville" on the anni
versary of the battle of "Lexington."
We wish to say that we do not under

plainly 'ihowed his contempt for a

Mr. Hansard was seated ia an easy
chair reading a book on the title page
of which was printed in large letters,
"Tahnnge on Temperance," while two
deceitful married men were planning
how to fool their wives when they got
home. One of them proposed to go to
bed Immediately and play sick. The
other declared that there, would be a
row when he got home. He said he
could feel it in his bones.
At this xtoint we looked around f.;r
the desperado, but failed to find him,
and for two mortal hours did we sit
ou a hard bench with our index finger
in that measly pistol, holding these
Infernal screws and waiting for au op

seem pugnacity enough In the whole

A Gallant Deed.
Thursday as Ev. Bilyeu yvas drlviog
In the neighborhood of Providence
church, he met a four-hot se team .run
niugawav. In the wagon yvas a woman
and child, the woman being so fright
ened that she made no effort to stop
the team. Mr; Bilyeu is a man
evidently of quick thought and uction;
for in'a less space of time than you are
reading this Item he yvlieeled his own
team out of the road, tied them up and
wai ready to jump into the runaway
wagon as it passed him. Shortly
before the team reached him one of
the wheel horses jumped Into the
lead bars, Which slacked their speed
somewhat and Mr. Bilyeu was thus
enabled to get Into the wagon. The
team belonged to a man by the name
of King, who, seeing a brood of young
grouse by the roadside, had stopped the
team, tying the lines to the brake rod,
and commenced throwing stones nt the
grouse. The team became frightened
and started. They were pretty badly
scared, as it required a mile in distance
for Mr. Bilyeu to stop them In. The
owner of the team whs very grateful to
Mr. Bilyeu for his timely aid, and
expressed his yvillingness to pay most
any price for the service. Scio Press.

On last Thursday evening, Aug. 2,

of course I went. I found the band
boys and their ladies already there,
and lot once realized that I was the
victim of a surprise. We then pro
ceeded to the St. Charles hotel and
played some, after whieh we returned
to Mr. Curr's to spend the evening.

like this. Thoughts of the "water
melon smiling on the'vine" came to
our mind, and of course we did justice
to what w ns set before us. After sup
per the time was spent in amusements
of all kinds. At about 12 o'clock we
marched back to the hotel anil playid
some more. Then we separatee! to go
to our homes to think over the pleas

I certainly feel very thankful to all
those participating in this att'uir in
honor of my departure from Lebanon.
I am sorry to leave the baud, but
though I am away, I will often think
of that nis-ht and the many pleasant
hours we have spent together. Again
I thank you for this token of esteem,
and csjH-ctully thank Mr. and Mrs.
Carr, who opened their home and pre
pared an excellent supper. These are
things that do not fade and die out of
the mind, but are ever carried through
life and thought of in old age. Fellow

possible, ami when out on parade, look,

a real estate agent, who, iu eonneetlou
with bis rt;al estate trausfers, claims
the richt to batr Cupid's arrows, laid
on our desk a marriage notice. A few
minutes later the original bidder for
the contract appeared, and seeing the

to gloat over the prospect of an inflated
