YcHtcrdny we Htated tliat the
board of trnde had purchased 10,000
copies of the August number of the
West Shore, mid the Oregon land
company the came number.
We are Informed that the state
ment Is, In part, incorrect'. The
board of trade have contracted for
15,000 pamphlets, specially devoted
to Salem, embracing all the litho
graphic views heretofore published
in the West Shore, together with all
the new brick blocks In course of
construction. The Oregon land
company have alo ordered one sim
ilar, but siH-'clally arranged for their
business. Neither take any copies
of the West Shore.
An Immigrant Pilot.
Prospective land buyers upon ar
rival in Salem are often .met at the
hotels by agents for some of the real
estate companies. Tlichc rustlers
whack out their cards and are eager
to show the new-comer around and
explain to him the advantages of
the countiy and the cheapness and
desirability of this or that tract,
which he has for sale. Yesterday
one of these Immigrant pilots made

There Is no room for doubt but
that a second street railway will at
ouco be incorporated in Salem, as
npoken of In last evening's Jouunai..
The route as determined upon will
bo out cither Chemekete or Center
to East Salem, when It will turn
south and follow State street to the
penitentiary, and then across to thu
"Insaiio asylum. This line is pretty
certain to bu built, and will bu a
grand aid In the development of the
capital city. It will give all of the
eastern additions close connection
with the business center.
A Knock-Down at Tiirnnr.
There was quite a llvelv light in
the neighborhood of Turner yester
day evening, Merrll AlcKlnney and
Oliver ItcuvcH being the participants.
It seems that McKlnnoy's horses
were lu the habit of breaking out
and getting Into Reeves' Held.
Heeves mentioned It several times
but nothing was done, and yester
day they were in bis Held again.
Ho hobbled them and turned
them Into their owner's pasture.
This was the cnuso of the light and
when the two men met they wont
at It, MoKlnloy Isjlugtho aggressor.
Neither was severely Injured, al
though both wear black eyes. Thu
corner of MoKlnloy'H mouth Is split
out and Heeves' thumbs arc bitten
badly as a result of the encounter.

Lat Mglit's Funny Lecture to an Ap
preciative Audience.
It was a little after eight o'clock
at the opera bouM- last night when
Mr. Talmoge came forward and
took his f-ent upon the stage. The
building was comfortably filled and
when Itev. Rollins arose to intro
duce the noted divine silence reigned
Amid the clapping of hands Mr.
Talmage bowed recognition and
brought from his coat-tall pocket a
bundle of "Ulg Blunders," which
he placed upon the speakers' stand.
After depositing his manuscript he
commenced by saying; "Ladies
and gentlemen: If we leave the
Evolutionists to guess how we
came here, and to the Theologists to
prophecy where we will go from
here, there Is still left, the interest
ing fact that we are here." He ev
idently knew, from experience, how
this little gem of richest ray bcrene
would be appreciated, and accord
ingly refrained from speaking for a
few seconds, to give theaudlenco a
chance to realize the beauty of the
clause and smile, whereupon the
lecturer proceeded to announce that
be was an optimist; that now was
the acme of history the present de
cade Itelug the best decade, the prcs
i ut year the best year, the present
month the best month, the present
week the best week, the present day
'he best day and the present even.
nig the best evening.
He said be did not believe in pro
found lectures, for two reasens: one,
that the audience did not know what
hu was talking about, and the other
that he hlmelf did not know what
l:ewastrlng to say. The people
wanted something that would make
them laugh. He referred, as a most
terrible example, to the most solemn
man ho had ever known a minis
ter, who assured him that hu had
not laughed for ten years, and who
borrowed $25 of him, and, out of
pure delicacy of feeling, never re
ferred to it again. Next followed
the old story of brethren in a
Methodist class meeting, who were
telling how they were going to
heaven aboard the good gospel ship,
each making faster time than the
other, whereupon a good sister arose
and said she had been hobbling
along trying to got to heaven afoot,
that she had had to walk seventy
years and was expecting to have to
walk the rest of the way, and closed
by telling her brethren who were
burring to heaven by steam that
they better look out or they would
bust their boilers.
The lecturer announced the sub
ject of his effort and said that while
it might not be profound, It was his
own. In Illustration of this point
(although his anecdotes were worm
eaten) hu told thu story of the slight
ly Intoxicated but well-read person

who built his sermons by Judiciously

who, as the preacher closed one

vexation, shouted, "Shut up, you old

teries on "Hig Hlunders," which
were divided Into four heads: mul
tiplicity of occupation, excessive
amusemuut, the formation of lucon

blunders. Under thu fourth head

blunders that had escaped from the

Where Sarah Was.
A farmer had some wheat stolen
a few nights since, and he was so
sure that he knew who the thief
was that he came into town and se
cured a warrant for a certain young
man living near him. When the
case came up for trial the defendant
said he would prove an alibi. In or
der to do this he had brought in "his
girl" a buxom lass of twenty-two.
She took the stand and swore that
lie sat up with her from seven in
the evening until broad daylight
the next morninz.
"People can be very easily mis
taken," observed the plautifPs law

there," she leplied.
"What did you talk ubout?"
"Love!" she promptly answered.
"What time did the old folks go
to bed?"
"I gave 'em the wink about ten.'
"Sure he was there at midnight,
are you?"
"Yes, sir."
"Why are you sure?"
She blushed, looked to her lover
and laughed, and, getting a nod to
go ahead, she said:
"Well, sir, just as the clock struck
twelve the old man jumped out of
bed up-stairs and hollered down
