Montague must be preparing for a
boom, judging by the way he is Block
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 saythat Montague
retails his goods as low as they buy
them at wholesale. The careful buyer
invariably goes to Montague's.

A LESSON IN ADVKR11S1XG.
It is a significant fact that every na
tion that has ignored printers' ink and
discouraged advertising has been swept
from the face of the earth and their
wares are unsold to this day. With
the single exception of old Pharaoh's
brick-yard ad. which appears in an
ancient Hebrew publication as a free
local, the Egyptian merchants were as
silent as their mummies. No Cartha-
geniau was ever known to occupy a
square in any of the daily papers pub
lished in his realm, and when we last
heard from these hucksters every busi
ness house was closed and tbe dealers
had either emigrated or quit business.
The Grecian's name never appeared in
a business directory, lie had noilodgers
struck, and never paid a cent for elec
tros, the result is that the Grecian
merchant is left in peaceful possession
of a moth-eaten stock that would dis
grace a ten-cent counter in a variety
store. In vain do we search the news
papers of Rome from the period of
Julius Caesar to G rover Cleveland for
either a pay local or a standing adver
tisement, and what do we Bee? Noth

"The start is half the battle," Is a
sound saying that never was truer
about anything than love-making. So
the luot-t Important feature of the
whole matter Is to start right The
proper way to begin is to determine
just what sort of a woman you want
to love. Some women are good house
wives, some are ornamental, some are
useful. A great many young men Im
agine themselves in love when they
have been a few minutes in the pres
ence of a pretty face or figure. Dogs
and cats think the same way when
they are among their own kind, but
we are not writing about that kind of
creatures. Nobody can help admiring
what is admirable, as a pretty face or
figure, but a man who does not know
the difference between admiration and
love is still In his infancy and ought
to treat himself accordingly. There
are plenty of young women of every
kind to go around, so no man need
make a hasty'step for fear he will be
left if he doesn't hurry.
The unitiated are opt fo conclude
that a happy introduction is all there
Is to courtship. There are rivals In
every kind ot business, and in none
more so than that of love-makine. If
yon have found a pretty, sweet little
creature somewhere, don't 'imagine
that you have an unquestionable right-of-way,
for some other young man is
sure to find it out and will rise up and
dispute your title. If at the same time
some other smitten youth chances to
be prowling around trying to establish
himself in her holiest fmotions, hold
yourself in, no matter how angry you
may feel about it, and instead of say
ing'hard thing about him. praise him
up as a good-meaning fellow, but at
the same time intimate that he is not
much account In a general way. She
will praise you for your magnanimity,
and despise him because you patronize

ElMTOH l.KBANON KXPRFJ:
In view of the quiet agitation in cer
tain localities locally interested," to
have a bridge built, principally at the
expense of the eounty, across the Wil
lamette river at Albany, and from the
further private understanding that the
board of commissioners as now consti
tuted at least a majority of the board
are favorable to theproposition, it
might not be out of place for the peo
ple and the tax-pnyers to fully under
stand the matter and we igh well the
subject In-fore such action is takeu. .
Internal improvements, where they
can be safely undertaken and put
through without great cost or serious
inconvenience to the many, should be
developed. The question naturally
arises. Is the construction of a bridge
at Albany a necessity? Also, Is the
county prepared, at the present time,
to assume the greater part of the ex
pense, in the present condition of its
financial affairs? The necessity Is
surely not one of vital importance to
the majority of the people of the
county; in fact it might seem that the
citizens of another county might be
more direelly concerned than those
upon whom the expense would fall,
aud yet It Is understood that Benton
countv has no money to uid in build
ing a bridge. The only object that any
citizen of I .in I.I county would have in
the bridge, financially considered,
would tie that it might Induce trade
from those living iit-ir In Benton
count'. This might benefit those en
gaged in trade in u small way, but the
great mass of the fieople would receive
no benefit iu that particular iu the
From the semi-annual report of the

and other temporary arrangements
made which will not 'fall far short ot
double that amount. With this amount
to be paid aud with the tax lew beinj?
increased to 18 mills to giltipi.v meet
the necessary expenses and indebted
ness, it might seem foolish to ask the
tax-payers whether they are ready to
add a fourth or a half more to their
annual donations to the county aud
State. When It is considered that
every man, woman and child, oh an
average, pays about $8 each for eoutity
expenses, to add on more, iu view of
all the circumstances, would seem nt t
the part of wisdom. A county heavily

I have been troubled manv rears with
d'.sease ef the kidneys and have tried
tn'anv difTerent remedies aud havs
sonjlit aid from different phvsictans
without relief. About the 15th of Aprd
I was suffering from a Terr violent
attack that almost prostrated me ia
sucn a manner tnai 1 was Dent over.
When I sat down it was almost impossible for me
to get tip alone, or to put on my clothes, when
kind Providence sent Dr. Henley, with the
OREGON KIDNEY TEA, to my
hotdt I immediately commenced
using the tea. It had an almost
miraculous effect, and to the aston
ishment of aU the guests at the hotel,
in a fevr days.I am nappy to state,
that I was a new man. I will;
recommend the tea to all affl
as X have been.

THOSE t'lUNRf COMMUNICATIONS.
EDITOR LEBANOJt ExfKKWi; 1
May ? Inquire who is the writer of a
series of articles in your paper against
the "filtfiy liabit" of using tobacco?
Ia vain have We waited for something
pointed, logical and . conclusive from
the would-be philosopher. Week after
week have we beeu' afflicted with his
pompous verbosity only to be left in
the fog-banks of empty word and
meanhilefs jargon. Far be it from us
to defend a habit so filthy, or excuse a
practice so dixgusting. Everyone who
uses the noxious weed is a better argu
ment against this narcotic thau are the
six communications which altound in
words without a meaning and careless
statements made regardless of prcof.
Men are not reformed by shouting
moral maxims at them, and the writer
may as well attempt to bombard Liil
ralfar with boiled peas as to try to re
form men by his lame, lengthy aud
stereotyped disquisitions. li. It. E.

Oculrtim: Altho it is very unusual
for me to use any lotions or
washes, still, in answer to your
request, I have tried Wisdom's
Violet Cream atid Robertine. The
former I consider especially efficacious
in cases of roughness of the skin, and
1 have been u.singit every day for the
hint fortnight. I -have found the
Robertine an excellent preparation in
casees of tan, sunburn, etc., caused by
exposure to March winds and a July
