I se ■ the “ Oregonian" has taken a new
rture, or rather gone back to first prin-
s, in heading the letter list “ men’s
list" and “ women's list," instead of “ladies’’
and ’’ gentlemen.” The idea is a good one,
and should be followed up everywhere, and
title of lady and gentleman applied only
where good behavior and good morals enti
tle them to it. As it is now used every wo
man from the queen to the nymph-du-pave
is a lady, and every man from the king to
the bunko sharp is a gentleman, By all
means give us a change.

if he chooses he may postpone paving taxes

Hainbletonian Mambrino is a beautiful dark
bay or brown, 15 hands, 2J inches high and
weight over 1,100 pound-», lie is unsurpassed
for style ami beauty: long-bodie»!, with a
rangy neck and bl<»od-like head. He ia hea
vy muscled, and as for feet and logs no horse
can excel him.
Of bi» prepotency as a »ire there can be no
doubt. All his colts have the impress ot his
high form and superb courage, and when plac
ed on the market have, so far, commanded (nt
the same ages) as high a price as the get of
any horse in the North Pacific.
During tbe last year his get was awarded
many premiums and was the. winner of the
three-vear-old three-in-five races at Vancouver
and the State Fair, defeating in both rnces th»*
finest field of three-vear-ohis that ever came
ogether in the Northwest.
