with the entertainments.

The very name, "Weber Dramatic

well known. We advise our readers
to take advantage of their appearance
here, for it will probably be a long

As I beheld a procession of twenty
or thirty men en route for the saloon,
after voting for and sustaining It, this
day lu Lebanon, I write:
'Wherefore hear ye the word of the
Lord, ye scornful men that rule this
people which is in this city.
Because ye have said, 'We have
made a covenant with Death, and with
Hell are we at agreement; when the
overflowing scourge shall pass through,
it shall not come unto us; for we have
made lies our refuge, and under false
hood have we hid ourselves.' " A pro
vision Is made. "Therefore thuBsayelh
the Lord God: 'Behold I lay in
Zion for a foundation, a stone, a tried
stone, a precious corner stone, a sure
foundation. He that belleveth shall
not make haste. Judgement also will
I lay to the line, and righteousness
to the plummet: and the bail shall
sweep away the refuge of lies, and the
waters shall overflow the hiding place,
and your covenant with Death shall
be disannulled, and your agreement
with Hell shall not stand, when the
overflowing scourge shall pass through
then ye shall be trodden down by it;
from the time that it goeth forth ti
shall take you; for morning by morn
ing It shall pass over, by day and by
night. For the bed (refuge) is shorter
than that a man can stretch himself
on it, and the covering (safety) nar
rower than that he can wrap himself
In it. For the Lord shall rse upas
in Mount Perazim, He shall be wroth
as in the Valley of Gibeon, that He
may do His work, His strange work,
and bring to pass His act, His strange
act. Now therefore be ye not mock
ers lest your bands be made strong, for
I have heard from the Lord God of
Hosts, a consumption even determined
upon the whole earth.'' This was the
Judgment threatened upon the city of
Epbruim, for ber pride and drunken
ness. So beware to-day and repent, for the
hand of the Lord is not shortened that
be may not punish the wicked for
their oppression, even Jn this cily of
Lebanon. Read Isaiah 28th.
Social at Sodaville.

. City Election.
Pursuant to a largely signed call
from all parties for a mass meeting of
citzenB for the purpose of agreeing
upon a ticket to be voted upon at the

Upon motion of J. A. Lamberson,

Dr. Foley, the mayor-elect, has
served lu that capacity before aud will
doubtless give great satisfaction. The
councilmen are all worthy men and
will give good account of themselves.
The recorder, Geo, Rice, has served
before and his record is inferior to
noue. Treasurer Hyde has held his
office for several years and can't be
beaten. Marshal Carroll is a new man.
He will make a good marshal. The

Member of the De Moss Family Dead.
The friends of the De Moss family
through America and Europe will be
grieved to learn of the untimely death
of Minnie De Moss-Cochran, at
Wheatland, Cal., December 1. She
was born in the state of Wellington,
December 5, 1869. She was the
second daughter of Rev. and Mrs.
James De Moss., early Baptist mission
aries to this part of the country. The
family has alwayB claimed Oregon as
their home, begiuuing their career as
sacred singers in Oregon, in a log
school house, 25 years ago. Minnie
was called by the family their sweet
singer, having a contralto voice of
great compass and power, yet of rare
sweetness. She had sung with the
family In all their tours throughout
the United Slates, Canada aud
Europe, for the past quarter of a
century, having made her first public
appearance at the age of two years.
Her death seemed the more peculiar
ly sad in that she was a bride of but
three months, having been wedded to
Martin Cochran on September 10, 1806.
They had been engaged four years.
While on a recent visit to her moth
er's grave, Mrs. Cochran was very
badly poisoned with poison oak, aud
this no doubt was the primary cause
of her death.
This event breaks up the quartette
and ends, perhaps, the public work of
the lie Moss family,
