We want no man of massive brain,
No man of. wealth or mighty power.
No owner great of aores broad,
To 6olve the question of the hour;
We want a simple minded man,
With good horse sense—no more
To pass a bill to fine the man
Who always fails to close the door.

Jas. Turner has a bad looking eye,

Speaking of Dr. A. P. Turner, the

interesting wife is a coadjutor worth

It is said that a man who won’t

In looking over the assets of the

county does not figure conspicuously
by any means. “The Gods help only

Hen Owens, the well-known “swamp
angel," having heard of the condition
of the streets of this city, states that
unless the council take some action to
prevent such oceans of mud from a
cumulating, he proposes before the
Howers bloom again to have the prin

The Salem Talk says the new
bridge is faulty in construction, and
intimates that it should not be ac
cepted until it has been proven that
the structure is sufficiently strong and
durable to withstand the strain and
pressure that may be made on it by
high water and constant travel.
The contract for boring the Rilz-
ville well has been thrown up. This
is the second time. In both cases
the parties, to whom the contracts
were awarded, failed to file their bonds
and have done nothing to fulfill their
contracts. The majority of the bids
in both instances were thrown out be
cause the bids contained provisions
which invalidated them.
We are pained to observe so much
cruel rudeness among boys of school
age in this city. And yet they are no
worse perhaps than boys elsewhere.
Parents should take some interest
in their boys’ conduct in the streets
and their associates. A celebrated
minister said many years ago in a
lecture to young men and women : “If
you want a good character at 30 you
must live for it at 20.” In this age of
progress he would probably say:
“Boys, if you want a character at 20
you must live for it at 10."

California talks of sending

Being rich should not debar
any man from any position, but
a good rule for our sister state
to observe in choosing senators,
as suggested by the Astorian is,
to select a man whose ability
would warrant his going as a
senator, be he rich or poor.
California did that in sending
