We wish to call special attention
to our fine line of paper and en
velopes for wedding invitations and
announcements. Invitations are
not quite as much in evidence as
they were a few years ago, though
thev are still all right. Announce
ments sent out immediately after
the important event, are very
generally used. Either is accepted
as a token of friendship, and is
treasured as a souvenir and keep
sake in every household where
healthy sentiment abounds. The
sending should not be neglected.
An announcement or invitation
should be artistic both in form
and execution. We have beauti
ful stationery, and have recently
added a series of type by which
the fine effects of lithography can
be fairly imitated if not equaled.
For most invitations the square
bevel-edged card 3'» x4\ cannot
be surpassed, either printed or
written. We have them and can
furnish them either written or
printed very reasonably.
For children’s parties our light
gilt-edge card of the same size put

to match, is just the thing. They
are only 35c a box without print
We have just added a few
handsome designs in menu cards

A Supposed ¡Murder.
Dee. 25th, 1897, at the home of the
bride’s parents near Carlton, Mr. Wm.
Scott and Miss Annie R. Wills, Elder
McCutcheon officiating. Miss Wills is
the daughter of one of Carltou’s success
ful farmers and is highly respected and
esteemed by all. Mr. Scott is well and
favorably known in Carlton as an indus
trious young man, a teacher in the Mc
Minnville publie schools, a graduate of
McMinnville college, bearing a teacher's
diploma. Both young people are mem
bers of the Carlton church, where they
are loved and respected by al).
Some presents of a very useful charac

George Sager, a man aged about forty
years, and a bachelor, who has lived on
the bank of the Willamette at Weston
for over twenty years, was found dead
near his house early Wednesday morn- j
ing. Coroner Fenton held an ioquest on
the same day, as soon as a jury could be
empaneled, and a verdict was rendered
to the effect that murder had been com
mitted by a party or parties unknown.
The surroundings showed that rocks
had been thrown into Sager’s house
through the windows and the door had
been forced open. The body was found
outside the house about fifty feet from
the door, and was stabbed in the back,
showing that murder had been com
mitted, as it would not have been possi
ble to have suicided in this manner.
Sager was subject to spells of craziness.
Those who knew him well say that they
cannot imagine any motive that would
impel anyone to murder the man, as to
know him was to feel a sympathy for his
One neighbor says that though Sager
was a poor man, he may have had a few
dollars hid away in his house, as he was
earning money most of the time and
rarely spending any. Coroner Fenton is
of the opinion that the man was most
foully murdered. The coroner was in
