This it a profession that ha needed competent 1 eprescntatives in our county and we know of no reason why it should not prove profitable to theso gen tlemen, as well as of a great benefit to our people.

The telephone line from Oregon to Forest, City is an assured fact, the con tracts for work being already let and plana matured : The buildingand loan association is under the course of or ganization, quite aconsiderableamunnt of the stock being already taken; and best of all. the street car railway from Oregon to Forest Cily is almost an as sured fact, 4 5 of the stock being al ready subscribed.

A certain dressmaker in town this district, this week. week told tho Sentinel man that she was making three wedding dresses, or wedding dresses for three different par ties, or something to that effect. Who are they? There is a prophecy that all men who marry during the first six mouths of the years '27 and '87 of any century cannot die before they reach the age denoted by the difference between those dates. A marriage certificate dated dur ing the first half of '87 is therefore equivalent to a lifo insurance policy for CO years if the prophecy be truo. An Iowa man says we are to have good crops next season becanso we have had such a drouth. In dry sea sons the earthly salts aro brought from far below, deposited at the surface so that the ground if f jrtalized ready for use.

There are a number ot people, lar rocrs and others, who talk of going to Kansas. We wish them all success, but the bottom is going to drop out of that country one of these days just as soon as the land speculators have "worked" it for all it is worth and then there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth ainonz the hundreds who have been deluded in going there 111 the hope of ' "i'me to a once happy Iwnschold, died (ImliiKr it n nnrmlkn I at his home in BrooUlvn on Tuesday -Thero wiil be a meeting of the di- ! rectors of the Fair Assoi-utiun at the ve this ' Farmers Bank, Maitland, March 1 10th.

Kellogg, for county school commissioner, would re spectfully call attention to the fact that the Professor has filled the honorable position, vfe belieye, for the p.vt two years, with profit to those interested in ihe county and with credit to himself. We trust that no other candidate will be before the people, for Mr. Kellogg has given such eminent satisfaction dur ing bis first term, that we trust he may be unanimously chosen lor bis second term. Iho following is the method of cur ing hams that received the prize at a New EngUnd Fair: To ever- one hun dred pounds of meat take eight pounds of salt, two ounces saltpeter, two pounds brown sugar, one aud a quarter ounces potash and four gallons of water. Mix them and pour the liquid over the ham after they have been in Ihe tub two days, they haying been rubbed with fino salt when put in the tub. They should remain in this pickle 'nx weeks, then taken out, hung up three days to dry and smoke. Wounds by rusty nails or other similar wounds, Irum which spring lock-jaw, may be csily cured, if taken iu time. The remedy is simple, almost always on hand, and can be applied by any one; and what is better, is infalli ble. It is simply to smoke tho wound, or any bruise or wound that is Inflam ed, with burning wool or woolen cloth. Twenty minutes in the smoke of wool will take the pain out of the worst wound and repeated once or twice, it will allay the worst case ot inflamma tion arising from a wound. Ex. So the cause of your idleness, boy, is that you are not able to get work. Wc do not doubt it, neither do wc won der at it. Wc were not surprised when you lost your last poxition. The fact of it is, son, this habit you have contrac ted of slipping into the alley and play ing poker, taking a drink and staying out late at nights carousing with wild reckless fellows has given to your re putation a very unhealthy complection, one that the business man don't like. If you conduct yourself as yon should and maintain your integrity you will have no trouble securing a position Thero is a demand for studious young men but not tor those who are wild and dissolute. Vindicator. "Life Boneath tho Crescent," a beautifully illustrated article by Emilc Juillard, is perhaps the niukt interest ing in the March number of Tiio Cos mopolitan, publMicd by Schlicht & Field Co., Rochester, N. Y. It presents, in a bright and unconvcntioiul way, a great number of curiom and int-rcst-ing flts relative to Constantinople and the lifo of the Turks. "The Profits of Novel-Writing," by William Westall will also be read with much interest. The same may bo said of "The Home, of the Blizzard," an article on Dakota, by Mr. Joel Benton; "Falters and Fasting," by Mr. Henry Howard; and "The Paris Bourse," by E Iward King. The number also contains several strong aud striking short stories. The Missouri State board of agri culture propolis to offer this year three premiums: 1 for the heat five acres of corn raised in the state; 2 for a drainage contest with both modern horse aad steam power tile drainers, or by the old system of hand digging with modern hand implements; .'! for the pig or shoat that makes the cheap est and greatest growth in six mouths. There will be three prizes in each con test 8100 lor the first, SV) for the sec ond and 825 for the third. As corn raising and hog raising arc leading branches of Missouri farming, and draining is becoming recognized for is importance in improving the produc tive capacity of lands and ils bygtnic value, the proposed contest ought to excite general interest and a spirited competition. It cannot f.iil lo have good effect on our agriculture. I If El m Vtf ate r.i!ll.e-:-i: to anncv.iiice .1. V.

Home E.vtcrpriscs. It is a trite but in every respect a true saying that a town is just what its citi zens make it. This is ut as true of a county or State. A town can be attrac tive, prosperous and progressive if ils citizens desire and put forth the proper effect. Oregon is an attractive town. Holt County is a good county, having many advantages of soil, timber, clim ate, etc. But both can be made more attractive and much more prosperous although they are making progress, and in some respects in the lead of neighboring towns and counties. In deed we have every reason to bo prom! of our advantage.
