AN EDITOR'S FOOD.
Newspapers receive all sorts of ad
vertising propositions. We received a
proposition some time since from the
manufacturers of a Cyclone wind-mill
aking our signature to a contract
which promised to relieve us of thirst
until the last drop of ink had evapo
rated from the bottle. In a very cour
teous manner we informed the gentle
men that Oregon editors did not drink
by machinery, that they still adhered
to the good old custom of drinking
through a straw; that wind was un
certain in this country, but that straw
was reliable and that we didn't Ijelieve
in innovations. The next man plied
us with a few rods of woven-wlre fence
and stipulated for & panel next rending
matter. This proposition we should
have accepted, only we had no ground
to enclose and eouid ill afford so costly
an ornament. We waited a week and
received a letter from a music firm.
This we declined in the most peremp
tory manner; we have just enough
knowledge of music to distinguish be
tween a dinner-gong and a fire-bell,
and boast not of our accomplish men ta,
but we have been in the newspaper
business Jong enough to find out that
a man cannot live on wind alone.
That man is a benefactor who can
disabuse tbe public mind of false no
tions regarding an editor's physique,
his habits and manner of subsistence.
If you think an editor is a man of lux
uriant habits, 'epell" him awhile and
you will come to the conclusion that
Dr. Tauner is not entitled to all the
laurels. Among his readers at home,
the only legal tender whieh he ever
sees is cord wood. From January to
December he is expected to live on
four-foot wood. This is a wholesome
diet, but it is not brain food. We have
chewed pine wood, spit turpentine and
picked pine knots outof our teeth until
our editorials lack the spirit which so
delights a reading public Bring us
some money; we prefer those yellow
pieces which read "In God we trust,"
which is far better than trusting to the
dry provender with which our manger
is always filled.

At the last regular meeting of the C.
M. C. A., a communication was re
ceived from the recruiting officer at
Sodaville asking the Grand Instruct

The communication was referred to
Messrs. Allsides and Topheavy, the
committee on organization, who re
ported such an organization impractic

condition of the roads.
The following communication was
also received from the mustering sen

gave the letter to her ma, and the
mother beinga little suspicious, opened
the letter and read it. She went to

also notified her daughter; then as she
was going to town she nu t the disap

and he came to town. Someone told

intention of making the fatal lean, but
seeing the fish come to the surface of;

The people of Sweet Home have had
a serious time on account of the measie
epidemic. In one instance at least the
whole family, husband, wife and three
children were down at the same time,
making them for the time dependent
on their neighbors, who, I am pleased
to say, are always ready to aid iu time
of sickness. . By good nursing and the
skill of our young physician, Dr. Prill,
those still afflicted are rapidly recover
ing. The holidays are past, but we n
tuember them with pleasure. All
seemed to combine to make -those
around happy. The Christmas tree
was a decided success. It -was heavily
laden with lieautifut and useful pres
ents for young and old. The pngram
of exercises was good, the young peo-
fde acquitting themselves admirabl
n their declamations. The music was
very good and appropriate. The Swet
Home band deserve credit for their
masterly efforts. They are learning
rapidly, and if they continue to im
prove they will soon stand shoulder to
shoulder with bands that have perhaps
greater notoriety at present. While
we were remembered with a number
of valuable presents on Christmas, for
whieh we are very thankful to the
kind donors, our brightest spot during
the holidays was New Years eve, the
neighbors and friends filing into house,
each laded with groceries, provisions,
&c. Ac, until there was scarcely room
left for ourselves; the ladies even tak
ing charge of affair in the kitchen,
and soon had a good stiper waiting.
Well, Mr. Editor, we just submitted,
and hope these dear people may efteu
be as glad and happy as their greeting
made us on New Year's eve.
