The wav to help build up your

Let every voter within the city
limits turn out next Monday and
put only good men in office.

' It is as h should be.
Another little indiscretion in
Lane county has been settled in ita
best way, by the marriage of the
two parties implicated.
Thanksgiving is at hand. Wbila
prices are low and money is scarce,
still we have many things to re
turn thanu for. None of us are

us are alire. -
It is said that there are in the

Sm Francisco is getting hard
hit from the prlpit. Last Sunday
in that city Rev. W.W. Case de
clared that hell is only ' eighteen
inches below tbeir sidewalks. He
fuiled to add, as he should have
done, tbat thefiiewBpapers of San
Francisco are the devil's official
bulletins. Ex. :
The Atlanta Constitution very
truthfully remarks that the best
way to stop lynching is to atop
committing the horrible crimes
which provoke it It is the duty
of every negro preacher to talk to
hip race on that line. If a negro
wants to escape tbe danger of lyn
ching, let him keep his hands off
white women. Ex.
Cinn county received first pre
mium at the state fair. She will
likely receive as conspicuous
place in the annals of crime. The
recent murders and robberies in
this county have been unprece
dented in her history. Crime is
rampant and officers should be
vigilant. If this thing keeps np,
a reckless mob will lynch some
body. A speedy trial, conviction
and execution are demanded.
. Keit Monday is election day.
A complete set of city officers for
one year are to be eleeted. Elec
tion day is about the only time
that all can have their say. Tbe
rest of the time we have got to
grin and bear the ills our votes
have brought upon us. Let us so
cast our votes on next Monday
that we will have nothing to regret.
Elect honest and law-respecting
men to office, who have intelli
gence enough to know their duty
and firmness enough to do it
Stick to your own town. It it1
is only a collection of cabins, stand
by it. Your share of tbe universe
amounts to tbe place where your
days are spent Your city if the
beet of all cities, your people sue
the foremost of all peeple. Talk
it, preach it, teach it till the world
believes it, and if you're any my
doubtful you will soon get to ballet -ing
it yourself. Speak up for
yourself. Ko matter where you
are pull for tbe place where your
home is and your friends are. That

TOM MOORE'S SWEETHEART.
k Urn InM hi a Nameltai Grave In
Only thoae who are thoroughly con
versant with the innumerable high
ways and byways of Greenwood ceme
tery in Brooklyn know of a section
called "The Hill of Graves." The sec
tion, amy the Ladies' Home Journal,
derives ita name from the fact tbat
nearly forty thousand unfortunates are
buried there in rows of fifty. One
would never think of looking for a snot
of interest in that locality. To find
any particular grave in this public! will be placed in the bauds of an at
taining ground one needs the aid of a. turnev for (Mll -ction. Guv 4 Maver.
cenwxeiT gumc. una even sucn
guide has difficulty, since the graves
are known only by numbers. Cpon
looking at the records of the cemetery
it was found that the special grave de
sired in this instance was in public, lot
Ko.8,W, and that the number of the i
mound was 806. When the grave was'
found it was not unlike the thousands ;
around it The mound was sunken and
neglected; the grass, once green upon
it, is long since dead. A small white
marble stone stands at the head, upon
which is inscribed: "Mother and
Grandmother. " Nothing is there to
indicate the fact that underneath that
sunken mound lies all that is mortal of
beautiful Mary Duff, to whom the poet
Thomas Moore offered his hand and
heart, whose beauty he immortalized in
his verse, and who, m the maturity of
her career, won the applause of thou
sands upon thousands of people whom
her name attracted to all the great
theaters of Europe and America, as
one of the most gifted of actresses.

It is much easier to acquire flesh than

and many are the things they are!
obliged to do to scare off fat, says the .
An Englishman reduced his weight in '
one year from two hundred and two to !
one hundred and fifty pounds, and kept
it there. He lived on beef, mutton,
fish, bacon, try toast, poultry, game,

Physical exercise will, we all know,

The antiquity of modern inventions
has often been the subject of remark,
by wsy of commentary upon the old
saying that "there is nothing new
under the sun." An extreme ease is re
ported by the London News. A peri
patetic exhibitor of the phonograph in
Holland seems determined to distance
all competitors. He wssexhibiting the
machine in the streets of Utrecht, uud
a number of customers were listening '
to a selection of tunes. Buddenly the
music ceased and there was a pause.
Then in a loud, clear tone was heard
the one word: "Halt!" "What is
that?" asked one of the listeners.
'That," was the reply, "is the voice of
Napoleon Bonaparte giving an order at
tbe battle of Waterloo!"
