There soema to bo nn clement In tho
society ofmll cities, towns, villages and
neighborhoods, which takes a delight
in discouraging and destroying" all tho
ennobling acts nnd Influences of culti
vated mankind. They seem toimaglno
that society Is only kopt In nn organ
ized condition for their cntcrtalnmout,
and that nil meetings both public nnd
private nro only nrranged for their
special Indulgence. Thoy are uncouth,
thoughtless and boisterous, nud don't
seem to care for nnybody, themselves
included. Orrgon, we aro sorry to say,
is no exception to this general rule, and
wo havo hero a clat.8 of young roughs
whose moral crafts aro rapidly drifting
upon that stream which flows by the
way of jails and court rooms, and emp
ties Itself into Stato Prisons. It seems
to bo tho general belief that the small
boys lads of town aro thu cause of
nil this undue disturbance of lawful as
sembiages ; but tho real cause lies deep
er down than iheir young lives will
measure. "The ny tho wind blows
tho twig is bent, and the way tho twig
Is bent tho tree Is Inclined." Parents
havo tho wholo matter within their own
hands; under their own control; anil
thoy hIoho aro responsible. The Un
ion Literary Society, of tins city, at Its
meeting on last Friday night, the ICth
llist, was greatly disturbed by thuso
youthful wrong-doers, and parents will
do well to look to the behavior of their
children upon all future occasions of
tho same kind, ns tho members of said
society aro determined to rtport these
uncouth lads to the proper olllcers ami
have them dealt with according to law.
Editor County Pai-ek: Some
few weeks ago one of our city papers
asked why the "Woman's Union" did
not furnlxh cidieortM, lectures, etc., Ihln
winter. Thtyuwwcr is very simple,
there is not ill this town a suitable hall
for buch entertainment within their
control. At different times tliu churches
have been granted for such use, but
thero is always more or less trouble at
tending tliu privilege, and tho society
heretofore managing tlir.M) entertaii -meats
has decided to take a rod till Mr.
Zook completes the lino hall ho has in
view. When that time arrives the
"Woman's Union" can, and will en
gage from time to time such talent as
the people deinaiul. At mo piosoni
moment they are declining several very
attractive artists for the reason above
given no hall. If our Honornblo
County Court could see Its way clear to
runt tho court room for concerts, etc.,
until tin! Opera House "looms" up. I
for one should be iu favor of giving
theui a sure-enough banquet, as the
Countv Paper suggests.
Oregon needs a hall, Oregon needs a
railroad, but before she gets cither, she
will have to explode a fow car loads of
lniannto iu our midt to rouse tuu
