The Dream City. We desire to again call attention to our very liberal subscription offer out lined last week. That it is most accep table is proved by the fact that we have already received numerous responses, and those who have in possession the hano6ome volume of sixiy-four World's Fair Views Bre most enthusiastic in its praise. The work is issued in the high est style of art, with an elaborate stiff cover in gold and colors, and the en gravings aro printed on highly enamel ed paper.

Believed to be Owens. There seems to be but little doubt but what Jamen Owen, who escaped from the St. Joseph jail with Fat Crowe and others on Ne- Year's Eve. is in the hands of the law again. A man was arrested recently at Atchison, Kansas, that answered Owens' description so well that the sheriff of Atchison county and others were snt for to identify the man. The prisoner stoutly denies being Owens, but when arrested said that he would kill himself before ho would go back to St. Joseph, which remark still remains unexplained. The Atchison county papers claim that parties from that county have positively identified Owens, one of the parties being a neigh bor of his when a resident of that coun ty. Owens is from Atchison county, and is under sentence of death for mur dering his father-in law, Seneca Nob lett, and had been sent to tho St.,Toseph jail for safe keeping. Hope till ami Prosperous. In a short time Oregon's building sea son will open and it gives us pleasure to note that the contracts for many build ings have already been let to our con tractors. The Sentinki. calls attention to the fac: that all such efforts in the way of building improvements, if made early in the season, have a marked effect upon the general activities of a town or city throughout tho season. Let it be known that ten or twenty buildings are contracted for, ranging iti cost from 81,000 to $10,000 nnd it will not only put the homo mechanics and laborers in good heart, but it will decide many others or other trades to come and settle. "Nothing succeeds like success.' Now then, keep the ball rolling. Send in as many building projects as you can. Hopeful and prosperous times are right upon us. Oregon will be right in the swim. Nay, it now is. Come right along and tell us what projects you have in view for the benefit of yourself, your family, your beautiful littlo city anil your county. The Teaehers. The tenchers of our county met in convention on Saturday last, with Prof. Gray, as president of tho day. The gathering was unusually large and much intarest manifested.

Prof. Louis Favour then gave a very timely talk on "Science in our Public Schools," and gave many good hints as to the best manner ol giving such instruction. The subject: "The Kind of Education De manded by Good Citizenship," was then discussed by G. W. Murphy in a fifteen miaute talk, which was followed by a "Review of Modern Educational Ideas" by Prof. Crosen, of Maitland. This was discussed by Prof. Maxwell.of Craig. "Habit formed in school." was another excellent paper, and was read by Miss Edith Fink. Several interest ing discussions were had by Professors Gallaher, Landon, Gray, Maxwell and others. Altogether, this was the best meeting cf the season. The program was of a high order and well carried out. The-interest was good and it is evident Holt county has a live progress ive lot ot educators. L. I. Moore nnd Sam Davison were in Craig last Thursday on business. Mrs. Ben.

Gambrel, of near Craig, and in default of bail was committed. Fatton is wanted in Atch ison county for burglary, as he is believ ed to be the man who attempted to go through the home of Joseph Hurst, tho particulars of which appeared in these columns last week. Cupid's Darts. No man can long escape Cupid's daits. Sooner or later ho tinds that the merry little god has discovered a vulnerable point, and that he himselr has been pinked. Such has beeu tho case with Levi Schulte, of the firm of Schulte Urns., v ho gracerully capitulated Wed nesday evening, and manfully joined tho ranks of Benedicts. Our little city is interested in this because Levi is one of us; he began life at a 'round in the ladder that was well nigh on tho ground. and he has pounded awav as a tinner and mechanic, until to day, he, with his excellent brother, constitute one of the best hardware firms in this section or the state. He is frugal, careful and in dustrious, and by these he has develop ed into one of our very best citizens. Tho bnde, is Anna, the oldest daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Seeman, of this city, olio is a magniticeut woman and thoroughly endowed by nature and education to grace u home and make tho man of her choice truly happy. The ceremony occurred at the beautiful home of the bride's parents, on Wednes day evening, February 27, 1895, Rev. F. F-.egetibaum, of tho German M. E. church, officiating. At 8:20 tho bridal couple entered the parlor and ts.uk their places under a handsome iloral bell, the clapper of tho bell being formed into the monogram S.

After congra.ula.ions and beat wishes on the part of relatives and friends, tho newlv married couple and a host of in vited guests repaired to the dining room where a bounteous supper was served. Both of these young people are most highly esteemed by all vha know them, being very popular among their host of friends and they have the best wishes of all for lung life, and an abunduncoot happiness nnd prosperity.

Thomas Harris and Arthur Blake, two young men of 19, enticed a boy named McDowell from home, to join them in a robbing expedition. He hid with him about $14.00 in cash, nnd they killed htm with a club, robbed him and secreted the body in a bunch of bushes near the Nishnabotna.

Miss Jennie Sherman,a missionary of the frestiyte'ian church in India lectured in the Presbyterian church this city, on Monday evening, of this week, on the Presbyterian mission work of India. She gave a vivid and instructive descrip tions of the customs, habits and condi tion of the people of that land, and all present, whether professed christians or not, could .lardly help but realize that nothing is so suited to the needs of childhood, womanhood and manhood as the religion of Christ revealed to the world in the Bible.

Clmreh Crowded to its Fullest Capacity Last Friday Evening. Tho event for which our people ha J been on the qui vive for a fortnight took place at the M. E. church last Friday evening. Ye Old Tymo Concerto was an entertainment "planned, arranged and carried to a successful conclusiou by prominent members or the churcti, the proceeds o bo used toward paying the pHstor's salary. Tho entire cast was dressed in the cobtumes of our Colonial ancestors, and this, together with the uature or the entertainment, curried one's imagina tion back to tho good old days when Gen. G. Washington was born, 103 years ago, and to the time when this same honored patriarch with Thomas Jeffer son and others laid the foundation of this grand republic. Almost three weeks had been de voted to rehearsals, and the expiditious manner in which tho program was carried out showed that each part had been fully mastered before any attempt was made to render it in public. Tho following is the cast: Martha Jane Wiggins- Myrtle Levcricli Sntustcr Delight Ijvc Ulossom. Macule Perkins Mistress Prudence Joy drceu Mrs. Dr. dreeo Spinster Manila l' terMin Ida Watson Si. luster Klizabeth Snooks dertrude Mil- Mistress Sophia Maria Head. .

Miss Margaret Perkins, presiding at the ptano.rondered a very acceptable march, to the time of winch "e Menne and Wymen Ijyugers marched in. And when they had exchanged greetings. Ye Head Tiniest. Mr. C. O. Proud, drilled Ye Singers a short time before they rendered "Jeru salem. My Happy Home," tho first number on tho program. Litttle Myrtle Leverich, in "Oh Dear. What Can the Matter Be," was one of the must pleaj ing numbers. This little lady has in herent talent and greatly pleased her auditors. The duet "Auld Lango Syne," by Mr A. H. Bailey and Miss Maggie Perkins was rendered in the spirit it was intend ed, pathetically, and was well received. Ye llead Tiniest Proud then sang the "Old Oaken Bucket" in the artist-like manner so natural to him. The selection on "ye now faugled in strument," as the programs designated tho piano, by Mrs. Dr. Green, was one of the strongest numbers on the pro gram and was highly pleasing. Ye national ayre, "Y'ankee IJnodlo," was sung by H. E. Denny, J. A. Kreek, Mrs. Davidson, D. Kunkel, Jr., J. E. Cum mins, Leon a Schulto, Carrie Schulte, J. W. Rostock, Mrs. Bailey and Mrs. Fitts, each singing a verse separately, and All Ye Singers joining in the chorus. James E. Cummins sang "Sallio in Our Alley," in an acooptabla manner. This is a piece difficult of rendition, but tho performer acquitted himself nicely. A spoke pieco, "A Grandmoth er's Story," by Miss Ida Watson was one of tho strongest features. The story de lineated scenes, times and incidents of 1802, and noted changes and improve ments made since that time. Miss Watson is a tine elojtttio.u-t, and on this occasion her effort was full equal, if not superior, to former ones. "Yankee Sleigh Ride,' by Messrs. Den ny, Kunkel, Cummins and Proud, was acceptably rendered. Miss Gertrude Stock then sang Margery Daw;. Miss Stock hnsono of the swoolest voices we have ever heard, nnd certainly has bright promise in the field of vocal music. During intermission Ye Head Tiniest Proud asked some very important ques tions on music, and it was developed that a whole note was a note with a hIo in it. Tho opening of Yo Second Parte was Mr. Kunkel's bass solo, "Rocked in the Cradle of tho Deep." Mr. Kunkel has a mngnilicont bass voice, and his friends were in no wise disappointed in him. "Three Black Crows," by Misses Car rie and Lecna Schulte and Mrs. Cora Fitts, was, in a measure, mirthful, and was highly entertaining. Mrs. Blanche Smith's solo was especially meritorious, and reached tho appreciative ear of the audience. She even excelled former excellent efforts. "Three Roguish Chaps," by Messrs. Kunkel, Proud, Cummins nnd Denny wa9 fully as well received as their former quartette. After All Ye Singers had sung "Home Sweet Home." came the "Tune on String Pumpkins," by Misses Margaret Perkins, Josie Berres and Edith Hinde, mandolins; Henry and Ed. Fiegenbaum, guitars. Tho audience encored this number heartily, which told plainly how well it was received. Mrs. Dr. Green's vocal solo, "Songs of Other Davs." was every whit as pleasing as was her instrumental selection. Miss Leona Schulte Bang "My Pretty Jane," in a manner only possible to one natur ally endowed with a splendid voice, antE a talent ror music, t he program cioseu with "Blessings," by Alle Ye Singers. The accompaniments throughout were played by Miss Maggie Perkins, as only artists can do. The beadle. Mr. L. I. "Moore, had no end of trouble checking undue levity, and keeping Y'e Little Boy Ed on his good behaviour. The Biggest Ituti Yet. All public improvements are bene ficial to a town in which they are made, and we know ot nothing that has been of so much benefit to our beautiful lit city and community as has the Oregon cannery, under the proprietorship of George Anderson & Son. It has fur nished an immediate market for acres of tomatoes and corn and under the processing of Mr. Linville, who has been with the cannery since its very beginning, received the World's Fair prize for the best packed corn and to ma toes. The pack ot tomatoes was largely in excess last year, the total number of cases packed in the United States being 6,7:50,000. Of this number 200,000 cases were packed within a rad ius of 100 miles of this city. Now is the time for letting contracts with our corn and tomatoe growers. Never in the history of the business havn such per plexing conditions surrounded tho can ner. With "spot" tomatoes at G3 cents and corn at 60 cents, together with heavy stocks in tho canners hands, they have' been in doubt what to do. A larg er amount of goods than ever before are now in the hands of tho canners for this season cf the year. It will require some backbone to proceed as usual this season, taking thechancesof a favorable reaction, but under the management of Judge Anderson & Son.assisted bv their processor, Mr. Linville, and aided by Messrs. Sam. O'Fallon and Alex Van Buskirk, who have been ndded to the firm and incoporated as the Oregon Canning Co., with a capital stock of 310,000. we are of the opinion there will be sufficient backbone to make that es tablishment hum this season, nnd these five gentlemen nre now busy making all the necessary arrangements to run the establishment to its highest capacity the coming season. Mr. Linville, the processor, is now ready to contract with growers, nnd those contemplating put ting in either corn or tomatoes, or both, should see Mr. Linville as early as possible. John Glass, of Forest City, is now ready for your trade with a nice new line of general merchandise Dress goods, boots and shoes, hats, caps, etc., and at prices away down. Go and see him in the building formerly occupied by Jacob Limp. Pleasant Words. j Wo learn that Elder A. W. DaviB has resigned his charge at Chillicothe, to accept a call at Wurrensburi;, which has one of the finest Christian church buidings in the state, with a seating ca pacity of l,uU0 and a membership or 800. He will 6pend Sunday with his parents in New Point and also visit witn his many Holt county friends. He will begin his labors in his new field the second Sunday in March. We are in deed glad to hear of the bucceus of this truly cnnstrin gentleman. The Chillicotho Constitution in speak ing of this call says: "Elder Davis is a vaiunble citizen nnd a btrong worker in the vii. ovarii of the Master, and it is with many regrots that we learn that there, is u prospect of hia leaving the city for another field of labor. But, should he conclude to make n change we know full well it is because a field is open where ho enn do more effective work than in Chillicothe. It will be very hard to &l Elder Davis' place, but bliould he conclude to go, we will hir-e a great clittt-tiiiu worker and a valued cit izen." Was Well Pounded. On Wednesdtiy evening last. 20th inxt.. Elder Pucket. of this city, pastor of the Protestant Methodist church at Bassett chapel, four miles north of New Point, was well pounded and pok ed. Agreeable to arrangements at an early hour, tho tnanv friends of the fc.1- tler, wilhotat rei'ant to sect or creed. filled thechappel to overflowing; nearly every one in the commui it y responded to the call, some from qui to .a distnnce, by bringing with them. pounds uf coffee, sugar, tea, and pokes or meats, nnd oth eis groceries and provisions - and grains. all of which were piled in the pulpit. until it represented a general provis ion ami merchandise store. rather than a pulpit. After an excellent t-ermon by the Elder, he feelingly thanked those who had so liberally contributed to his needs and comforts, which, when put togethel made a good wagon load, which was brought to his homo in this city the following day. The. evangelist, Kev. McKay, who has been assisting Elder Pucket was also pounded in a first-class maimer, one pound of silver, which ho accepteJ with thanks. On Sunday last, these two divines closed a series of very interesting revi val meetings, at this place, which re sulted in live accessions, one confession of faith and one by letter. At the cloce of these mooting", the Elder and others, proceeded to organize a Union Sunday fcIimoI at the chapel. lus Wamp ler was chosen superintendent; Albert u ilhams, secretary, anu Miss Mina K le, treasurer. Tne necessary Protes tant Methodist literature was ordered for tho school. Card ot Thanks. I wish to thank the kind friends of Holt county, for the interest they man! tested for mo and my littlo ones, that happened to be left friendless among entire strangers, under such unfavorable circumstances. I wish to thank the gentlemanly officials of this county nnd the ex Sheriff, Mr. Cook, and his wife, for their kindcesi. And Mr. and Mrs. IJoyii. who rescued me, nnd was as parents.

He brought with him a blank, used by all parties asking public aid. and from its looks at first glnnce, one is impressed with the idea that he is to nil eut a blank for an income tax. He must swear as to the real and personal property owned; that he is without money, will stay in the county if aided and will plant seed furnished him, nnd about one hundred other questions.
