So says au exchange, and we are puzzled to know whether the point to tbe item was a warning to young nfcn not to marry two sisters or to warn them after such marriage not to go in bathing. . .- We are informed, says the Coos Bay Mall, that there is a move on the part of the Catholic Church to establish a school and church at this place. Com mittees have been appointed to solicit subscriptions for f ind to assist in con structing the necessary buildings, and negotiation has been opened for a suit able site. Mr, J. P.

The Oregonian of Sept. 8th say: Yesterday morning about tli ree uf clock Riley Wilson, enjriouerof the tug Rip Van Winkle lost his life under the following circumstauce: : The tu un der command of Capt. Harlow, bad an order to go to St. Helens, and at 2 A. it. Mr. Wilson started a fire and raised steam. . About So'clbck the tug swung out into the stream and started down the river. The boiler is in the hold, the fire box being near the middle of the boat and the boiler projecting for ward toward tbe bow. Scarcely had a dozen revolutions of the machinery been made, when Mr, Wilson heard a hissing sound at the other end of the boiler.. He slowed down a little, and walk lug past the boiler, stepping dir tly1n front of the end. careely had he stopped a second when the eud of the boiler ripped open and let a full tody of boiling water and steam out, striking him full In the face and breaxt, and hurling him directly into the stem of the boat, where the boiling water aud steam deluged him, cookiug his flesh to the bones. , With superhuman energy he sprang to his feet and made bis way out iuto the engine room The captain, who heard the first warn- nings of tbe explosion, rushed to the engine room, and was horrified to ste Wilson emerge from the Bide of the boiler, his fleh I'aWing from bauds and face aud banging In strings. Hu was conveyed to St. Vincent's hospital and medical aid summoned, but without avail. Messengers were disuatcued for his wife and his father. Mr. W. v. Wjlaou, of East Portland, wiio arrived and with whom he con versed treely concerning the accdent. lln lingered iu terrible agouy until 7 o'clock, when death put au end to his sullVriiigs. He was about twenty-five j ears old aud had the confidence aud jretpeetof all who knew him. t' ; I u cause of the accident is not . Shot "hroBgh tbe Bead.

The Presby terian concert Thursday evening was a complete success, and tbe managers deserve much credit for the result which followed their efforts. The court-room war not so well filled as we hoped it would le, but the audi ence was a large one, and th enter tainment a matter of profit to the church. Tbe exercises begau with, Yes, We'll Gather at the River," by the band, and the music was very fine. So far we must give our Silver Comet Band much credit. Its members have practiced early and late, and Roseburg can boast of as good a small baud as can be fouud in the State ' It will con tinue to improve, until we have the best in Oregon. Following came tbe "Harvest Moon" by tbe choir, com prising Mesdames Flint and Seidell, Mioses Hill, Rice and Slocum, aud Mesors. Fliut, Wright, Strange and Benedict. Good practice was shown in tbe singing of this song by tbe choir- The music was ..harmonious aud the soprano voices distinct and sweetly blended with the bass and alto which were toned to suit appar ently wl huut au effort on the part of the singers. : Miss Ana Byars recited the poem, "Only a Dog," in a spirited and effective manner for one of her age, and was properly applauded. Mrs. Flint, assisted by Mrs. .-Wd a aud Mr. Flint, sang "Hanir the Horse-sboe Over tbe Door" cha rmlngly, and the song argued, so nicely as it sung, strongly iu favor of the old Irish su perslitioo aud its observance.

A farmer never knows what he can do until he tries. We believe that Is tmi with most men. in all Hues of business. To prove wbat can be done by farmers, we will state that Mr. J B; Goodwin, assisted alone by bis father, have raised and harvested and threshed on the Imbler farm this sea son 2.400 acres of wheat, and have paid out for hired help the trifling sum of i S3 5 only.
