The Qrand Jury's Report.
We, the grand jury nf Linn county,
for the June term, 1896, respectfully
report that we have disposed of all
business brought before us, that we
have made an examination of the
county jail and court house and build
lugs; also the different offices. We
flud the officers in charge oourteous
and obliging, We flud the offices of
the clerk and recorder too small and
inconvenient for the business of the
county. The vault is overcrowded to
the material damage of the county
records. We would there recommend
that the honorable county court take
steps to improve the same. For the
kind and courteous trcatmeutextended
us by the officers of the court aud
county we express our thanks and
respectfully ask to be discharged.

What True Friendship Means,
Between friends there must be close
sympathy, and one must be able to
give to the other what she lacks, but
even between those friends who are
nearest and dearest it Is not necessary
to lay bare one's heart. Such confi
dence is too apt to he greeted with a
curious satisfaction, and even from a
frieud this gratification makes one feel
as if one's bruises bad been touched
with vitriol. A real friend asks no
questions. She takes tbe best that
MM, till Met UUl U in jrotli tk bail
that you care to offer her, and de
mands nothing more. She has long
ago learned, being wise, that to all of
us there comes a lime when nothing
should be aaid; it is true there is a litre
when something should lie said, but
there Is never a time wheu everything
should be said.' There is very often a
silence between two Women friends
that means rest, and she .is unwise
who breaks I hut silence. Ruth Asli-

About Hops. . j
Mr. E. C. Herren, a hop man of Sa
lem, estimates that the crop of Oregon
this year will be about 45,000 bales, the
Washingon output at about 30,000 and
tbe California over 50,000 bales.' The
English crop promises well, but late re
ports from there show that vermin has
appeared on the vines, but no appre-
nenston is tett on that score, as every
grower In that country owns his own
washing machine (sprayer). Tbe
prospects are that choice bops will
bring enough iu tbe Willamette valley
this year to pay expenses of picking
and preparing them for the market,
but lower grades will be a loss to grow
ers, if picked. Mr. Herren ia making
contracts with growers for the 1896.
