A reader of the Exprkss wants to
know who built the depot flue at Sclo.

ascending, settles in the waiting room.

M. Rcdfield took us to the new bank
and Mr. Merrill kindly showed us
through the building. The building
is finished throughout with Oregon
wood, combining the ornamental and I
the durable. The architect of this'
building, whoever he may lie, has by i
the happy combination of Oregon tim
bers, demonstrated our superiority over
every State in the matter of building
material. We seriously doubt if there
be another building in the State so
handsomely finished as this one. i

park and horticultural gardens, and
need only the soda water to make this
one of the most attractive resorts In

creditable growth this year, but with

MORTAR AND PAST.
The first clean-up was made by the
Albany mining company last week,
and the result surpassed their expecta

and that rich mines will be worked

While in Albany Saturday, we saw
the gold brick which was taken from
the Albauy compauy's mines as the
result of one day's run on surface ore.
The Albany Milling and Mining Com
pany have demonstrated the fact that
there are gold mines in Linn county,
and that said mines are rich. All
honor to tbe practical business men
belonging to the Albany Mining Co.,
who now propose to follow up their
well-earned success by still greater
achievements. The little mill which
has a daily capacity of six tons -will be
kept at work through the winter at a
profit to the stockholders and will give
Tilace to a large and well-equipped
piahi eariy in tne spring.
The men who have been at work for
the C. and B. It. M. and M. Co., since
last June, are expected home this
week. The Poorman has been pretty
thoroughly tested by tunnel a distance
of more than 100 feet, and a cross-cut
has been made revealing a flue body of
paying ore sufficiently rich to warrant
the putting in of a m'll early in the

activity in these mines next year.
We received a letter from Superin
tendent Bradley of the Trinity Mining
Company this week, and he makes a
most satisfactory report. The Gold
Dust has been uncovered at a depth of

this ledge, all of which show a fine
body of free-milling ore. The general
tone of the letter betrays some excite

A Wrong Impression Corrected.
The Albany Democrat says: There
being a number of suits on docket
against the Farmers and Merchants
Insurance Company, and hearing vari
ous rumors concerning the same, our
reporter called at the office of the com
pany and ascertained the following:
The suits are entirely from the East,
the result of "rotten work;" there is
some merit in a few, others have no
merit whatever. The company has
prompnv met its uregon, Washington
aud Idaho losses. The company owes
three losses due in November and De
cember. The company discontinued
its Eastern business by cancelling all
Eastern policies on Sept. 2d and ap
pointed j. J. wnteman secretary and
manager. Since the company's organ
ization it has paid upwards of f 90,000
nre losses, lhls company, like all i
honorably conducted companies,
promptly meets its legitimate obliga
tions, but most positively declines to
pay "straw" losses and liabilities of
such character. Among the stock
holders are the best citizens of Linn
county and other parts of the State.
Ihe largest shareholders being Albany
men, it is the determination of these
gentlemen to make the company one
of the strong financial institutions or
"la this the best?" Is a question often
asked, when medicine is wanted. The
following are a few of the medicines of
known reliability, sold by M. A. Miller,

What a great thing it Is to be great.
I never fully realized what a grand
and stupendous article greatness wits
till last Wednesday. I had read of one
Alexander the Great and Napoleon
Bonupnrtc, men who had ruled the
destinies of empires and held withiu
their grasp the fate of nations; I had
heard of Vanderbilt and Jay Gauld,
whose great railways reach from the
Atlantic to the Pacific; I had once
looked through the cracks of a fence
and saw a newly-appointed postmaster
puss by clothed In power aud greatness
and an old linen duster; I have stood
face to face with the living skeleton,
of the man that married his mother-in-law;
but never till J reached Rabbit
City, on the harrow gauge railroad, did
l have a full conception of what human
greatness is. The sun was just setting
in a flood of molten gold as I reached
the city of Rabbit, and one-legged
chickens. The agent had- long since
gone where the woodbine twineth,
unable to stand the pressure of the new
regulations. Taking from my ham
pocket a pale-red handorchief, I waved
it in the face of the coming train. My
signal was ' answered by one of the
tnoKt unearthly yells that ever belched
from the throat of a steam whistle,
and as the Westignhouse air brakes
were applied, ehe slid into the station
alongside of a magnificent wood-pile,
which, for beauty of architecture, con
fers great credit upon its builder. We
were met at the door by one of the
officials of the road and conducted into
one of the fine palace cars of which
tbe train was made up. Thecarwasa
mcdei of beauty, being furnished with
everything that wealth and the most
exquisite taste could suggest. The
seats were upholstered iu imported
roods made froni the hair of the Sir
William Goat, vulgarly called the Billj'
Goat, captured in the Forks of tha San
tiam. Dropping into the only vacant seat,
I gazed timidly around me, and, in a
low voice, I asked who run the road.
Up went the hands of the nearest
brakeman, and giving me a look that
niic,ht have killed a stronger man than
I, he whispered, "Vhare you? Where
have you been? Don't you ever read?
Can it be possible? Here, boys," he
yelled, "come here. This beiug don't
know who runs this road." As the
couductor came up he said, "Great
cott." Then I wondered what Scott
it was. I knew that Gen. Win field
Scott had long ago gone to a country
where narrow gauge railroads are never
run. Looking up at the conductor
with one of my blandest smiles, I asked
who the deuce this Scott is, auyhow.
Patient reader, those words uearly cost
me my life. With a yell that would
have made a Modoc brave turn pale
with envy, the train men drew their
pistols, and as I threw up my little
hands, I told them I was uo train rob
ber, but would like to know what this
gentle racket meant.
"Wretched man," said the boss of
the rad, as a wave of pity ewept
athwart his handsome face, "don't you
know that you are riding on a great
trunk line, whose anaconda length
permits its head to rest at Ray's Land
ing, while its tail flops around in the
city of Coburg? Ignorant creature!"
he cried, ''don't you know that the
Receiver of this grand trunk line is
the greatest railroad monarch of this
or auy other age? He it is who framed
the new regulations. It was his active
and massive brain that conceived and
put into practice the celebrated nine
hour system. Under this system we,
the vassals of King Scott, work nine
hours in the forenoon and nine in the
afternoon. That is why we work for
one-half what we used to get."

Gentlemen: 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 aud Robert ine. The
former I consider especially efficacious
in cases of roughness of the skin, and
I have been using it every day for the
last fortnight. I have found the
Roliertine an excellent preparation in
cjsees of tan, sunburn, etc., caused by
exposure to March winds and a July
sun. Yours faithfully,
To Messrs. Wisdom & Co.

HINTS ON COCKTSniP.
There are a great many pretty stories
in print some of them true about
men who did tiieir courting and pro
posing in a single day, and never had
cause to regret it. George Washington
was one of these lucky men. It may
be safe for you to go aud do likewise,
If you are absolutely sure that you are
as smurt as the "Father ef his Coun
try," but before you take tbe risk, it
would be well to remember that some
men, almost as well known as tbe im
mortal Washington, acted as hastily as
Gcrge and repented at leisure; and
oftentimes the women suffered as much
as the mi-n. If you feel that you must
make love frantically and in baste,
there are Impulsive young wouieu who
will gladly meet you half way and
take the responsibility of their half
the courtship. Avoid the selection of
a girl who is not exactly the kind you
would prefer, merely because you don't
happen to know a better. After you
are really in love, there is but oue girl
in the world who will suit you, but be
fore that blitwful eriod, there are at
least a miliiou, and if you are not man
enough to seek until you find the right
one, you may be sure you are not
worthy of her. Set yourself firmly
against the puppy-love theory, that
affection should begin with hugs and
kisses, lbs girl who allows you to
begin that way is too likely to let other
felToms be equally affectionate when
you are not around. Don't forget that
a girl's lips and cheeks are her wn,
and that you have no right to them
until you have fairly earned them.
Don't stop to make her your idol be
fore you have made her your friend;
putting the car? before the horse is
never a greateroblunder than when in
love. If you want to make an Idol of
a woman, the materials should be of
something that will stand the wear
and tear of life; so look for it in her
character instead of her curls, her ideas
instead of her eyes. Don't be -in a
hurry merely because you are afraid
some other fellow will supplant you iu
her affections If you don't speak
auickly. Women are possessed of con
siderable strategy, aud your girl is sure
to turn it to account if possible and
make you believe that you are about
the twentieth man who lias sought her
hand and heart. Don't mistake pas
sion for love and then imagine tbe girl
indifferent because she is uot careles!-.
Any man can rave wildly if he will
oyer a pretty girl whom he never
saw up till an hour before; but as here
tofore remarked, dogs and cats have
the same quality and more of it. Don't
lie in too mti-h of a hurry for the bliss
to begin; Miss, like apples, should be
thoroughly ripened liefore tasting. If
you find yourself impatient, as you
probably will, just step aside for awhile
and call yourself ail sorts of names,
for be sure that that is what everybody
else thinks of you. The bliss will
come quite soon enough, as soon as you
deserve It, generally a long time be
fore. Oue good and sufficient reason
for going flow Is, that if you don't the
girl probably will, and as she has the
final say In the matter you will have
wasted your energy for nothing and be
made very uncomfortable besides.
