As Incident. The Gazette speaks
of John Stewart and wife, and their
neice, Miss Jfahala Stewart, of Corval
lis, who were restored to health by a
few months sojourn at Finley's Soda
Springs, on the Cascade Mountain
Road which reminds us of an inci
dent. About two months ago we vis
ited these springs, where we met the
Stewart family. Only a few weeks
prior to the date of our visit Jiss
Stewart had arrived there in almost a
helpless condition, and we remember
that during our stay at the Springs she
accompanied a party of hunters (her
father among the number) into the
mountains. She was mounted upon a
cayusepony, which she rode through
the thick chapparel and up steep
mountain trails with .the ease of the
most expert equestrian ; remained
in her sylvan retreat with the hunters
over night, attended to the camp,
cooked their meals and assisted in cur
ing the venison, and came back to the
Springs the next day with the flush of
buoyant health upon her cheeks and a
mirthful sparkle in her roguish eyes.
Being a Benedict ourself, we daren't'
go into extacies over the romantic ap
pearance of the beautiful Amazon of
the Cascades, but we do know that
some of the young fellows encamped
about the Springs showed unmistakable
signs of hankering after the dear
which her gothic steed brought into
camp. The nerve, pluck and energy
which our fair huntress displayed on
that occasion would almost restore the
ruined Pompeii to the grandeur of our
Lamp Explosion. Mr. Dow, of the
firm of Dow & Crane, shoemakers, of
this-city, had a narrow escape from
furnishing the material for a first class
funeral last Saturday night. He ob
served that one of 'the suspended
lamps in the store showed obstreper
ous signs, and fearing it would explode j
and damage or set fire to the house, he j
seized it from its rest and started for
the door, intending to cast it into the
street, when it exploded in his hands
with a terriSc noise, startling the peo
ple of the neighborhood for several
blocks and causing a general rush in
the direction of the noise. Some ex
tremely nervous individual, seeing the
oil blazing on the floor at Jlr. Dow's
feet, and fearing a fire, ran to ithe en
gine house and rang the Cre bell, but
before the engine was brought upon
tha scene the blaze was extinguished
and the scare over. The escape of Jr.
D. was almost miraculous, as the oil
flew all over his clothing; but his great
presence of mind in wrapping his coat
tightly about him, thus smothering
the flames out, doubtless saved him j
from a terriole death. Je came out of j
the scrape with an unscathed hide but I
with a couple of closely singed eye
brows. Booth Killed. A telegraphic dis- j
patch to the Portland papers, last Fri-1
day, announces the accidental death of
Smith Booth, the gentleman who for
several months last spring and sum
mer was overseer of a gang of China
mn at work on the railroad near this
city. It appears from the dispatches
that he was killed near Kalama by the
cars running off the track, but in what
particular manner is not stated.
P. 8. Since writing the above, J. Z.
Crouse of thi3 city has received a letter
from Kalama which states that on last
Friday evening Booth was riding in to
that place on the locomotive tender,
when the tender jumped off the track
and rolled down a twelve-feet embank
ment, throwing the unfortunate man
tinder it and nearly cutting him in two.
He only survived a few moments. Mr.
Crouse informs us that Booth was a na
tive of Connecticut, wa about forty
years of age, and was a universal fa
vorite among railroad men.
Christmas Tree. The members of
the M. E. Sabbath School wilt have a
Christmas Tree at the Court TZbuse on
Saturday evening, Dec. 23. AH per
sons desiring to put presents on the
Christmas Tree will please bring them
properly labeled with the card having
the name plainly written upon it and
sewed on the article so it cannot lose
off. It is desired that all presents be
brought in previous to 12 o'clock, noon,
so that the committee may have time
enough to arrange them on the tree.
A committee will be on hand to receive
them from; 9 until 12 o'clock.
Terrible Railroad Accident.
Xast Saturday the gravel train ran
off the track at JTarrisburg, by the dis
placement of the switch, and several
fiat cars loaded with gravel and upon
which a gang of Chinamen were
: riding, were turned over. Several of
the Chinamen were hurled to the
ground, and, the gravel falling upon
: them, instantly killed two and fatally
mounded two others who died on Mon
day. Three or four others were badly
hurt, but will probably recover. We
. are indebted for this item to Capt. Rob
ertson, of Cbrvallis, who came through
Harrisburg last Tuesday.
Time Changed. The cars have
changed time, and the passenger trains

of whom has voted in Oregon since 1847. This
was a poor old man who has never failed, since
that time, to put into the ballot-box a truo-bluo

Stili, After Him. The Tortland

ler, while in that city a few days ago,
"denied the paternity of one of his
children, and does to-day deny it,
thereby traducing the character of ore
of tbe most virtuous and self-sacrificing
wives and mothers we have ever
known? a woman who never utters
a word of reproach or blame against
this sleek-tongucd sham, and who pro
tests with wifely delicacy agaiust the

choosing rather to suffer Sn silence,

We desire to osll your attention to the advan

tbe Equitable Life Insurance Society, as shown
by the following tables :

IN 1866..... IT WAS THE FOURTH
IN 1867......... . ....IT WAS THE THIRD
IN 1868 IT WAS THE SECOND
IN 1869 IT WAS THE FIKST
IN 1H70 IT WAS THE FIUST
The new buiinest in the year 1869 exceeded
that or any other Company by more than
thirteen million dollar. In 1870 iu
new business exeeeded sny other Company ten

Life er Endowment Assurance
As a profitable investment is attracting tbe at
tention of shrewd business men, who are prop
erly coming to regard it not only as a nam
whereby the family may be protected, but, af
fording, as it does,
Absolute Security, .
And freedom from taxation, sn exeellont in
vestment .'or surplus funds. Every business
man knows of soorea, just as prudent, juxt as
eareful, just as energetie, economical and indus
trious as himself, who are now, by some sudden
tarn of ths wheel of fortune, left in their old
age destitute. . Every business man knows that
all tbis suffering might easily have been avert
ed by simply taklag a few of the thousapds
they have lost on unfortunate investments aad
securing an endowment policy. - Nearly every
business man intends to insure "hut in Any pro
erastinate till too late. Lot us respectfully urge
upon yonr attention tbe propriety of immediate
action. Fortune n proverbially fickle, and no
men can tell whs will be tbe results-of the rest

THE GREAT WORLD'S TOXIC
This vronderful vegetable re
storative is the sheet-anchor of
tbe feeble and debilitated. As a
tonic and cordial for the asjed
and languid, it has no equal
among stomachics. As a remedy
for the nerrous weakness to
which women are especially sub
ject, it is superseding every other
stimulant. In all climates, tropi
cal, temperate, or frigid, it acts
as a specific in every species of
disorder which undermines the
bodily strength and breaks down
the animal spirits. For sale hi
