Editor Review: In- the last issue of your valuablo paper 1 notice a com municat'on from "Katie" sujrjxestinjr a reorganization of ihe old Philalathean literary society. W'jat a grand good thing it would be for our little city to have such an organization and to do as she suggests in order to make it a per manent institution. Go on, "Katie," and call a meeting. You will have the hearty support of our citizens as mem bers and contributors to the Library. They will certainly help build up an institutional; the above character where young and old can come together once a week for the purpose of mutual im provement and pleasure. "The study of literatu re nourishes youth, entertains old age' adorns prosperity, solaces ad versity, is delightful at home, unob trusive abroad, deserts us not by day or by night, in journeying nor in retire ment. E F. W. Our Ojmeteries- Editor Review: Your journal is taking such an active interest in the welfare and progress of Roseburg that I feel encouraged to speak my mind regarding a matter of general impor tance. I think it is disgraceful the way our public cemeteries are kept. Ttiey seem to ha e no attention what ever except by personal effort in a few isolated cases. Now could not a sex ton be regularly employed.-. It would not cont much and I am sure that one is needed. Let us not neglect the dead any longer but have a public meeting called, an association formed and. our cemeteries made to show proper res pect to our friends who have crossed the mystic riwr. A Friend. Cleveland may make an occasional mistake in appointing a postmaster or a consul, but we believe hfc will not make any mistakes in keeping the ac counts of the coast survey, or in count ing the Indians in the tribes, or in keeping the medical stores of the navy, or in surveying the public land, or in leasing the Indian territory to cattle kings, or in paying money for Dolphins, all of which little errors of his pre decessor are now revealed to the startled gaze of the people, -St. Louis Post Dispatch. This is the way they run politics in old Virginia, according to the Rich mond Dispatch: "Mrs. Fitzhugh Lee and Mrs. John S. Wise were guests at dinner. Mrs. Wise arose frouj the table, passed over to Mrs. liee'.. and congratulated her, saying: If my husband is to be beaten, I had rather he should be beaten by your husband than anv man living.' Mrs. Lee re turned thanks and said: 'Mrs. Wise, I only regret that loth cur husbands can not be elected Governor of Vir ginia at the same time.'' Ingersoll'8 Match. Ingersoll has met his match in one Father Phelan, of St. Louis. The Kan sas City Times, in publishing his dedi catory address of a cathedral, says his delivery has the eloquent charm and subtle influence of Ingersoll's oratory. In the course of his remarks the rev erend Father said: "If there is no hereafter, then life is one long debauch, und the highest edu cation is to know how to find and how best to enjoy pleasure. If there is no hereafter, virtue is a deceit and heroism i3 a lie. See that young man bleeding from a hundred wounds. He died in defense of a sister's honor. If there is no hereafter, that noblest of deeds will go forefer unrewarded. See that young sister in the hospital bending over a victim of the plague; to-morrow she will succun.b, anl rapid ride and a hasty sepuclture will reward her for her devotion. If there is no hereafter, her charity met a ftorry requittal. St;e that man holding a child from the win dow of a burning building; he holds it long enough for a sturdy companion to grasp it from below, and he thn falls back into his fiery tomb. If there h no hereafter, such sacrifice is heartless ana unmeaning cruelty, oee mat troop of soldiers marching by to the beating of the drums. Their country has called: they go to defend her honor 011 the battl-j-field. They follow their flag into the thick of the fight, and when the bugle sounds the retreat few turn from the carnage. Those brave soldiers die with their faces to the foe, and a smile was stamped on their faces in death. If there is no hereafter, their heroism was suicide, and their courage a mock ery of fte. Earthly life is closed in death; the grave terminates all consort and association with things of time' but wafted above the bier, the wreck, the tomb,, floats the sweet voice of; God, saying: 'J am the lite. Luck or Pluck A great t'eal that is called luck in this world is onlv the result of patient ! industry. A rich merchant of Liver pool, Sir Joseph Walmsley, began, life as a clerk on about a hundred dollars a year. His employers were gram mer chants, and the young man determined ! to Lain all there Was to know about gran. 1 lie man who had charge of the warehouse, "Old Peter," . A3 he was called, saw that the boy was anxious to learn; ro, twice a week, in the morning before breakfast the two would go to gether to the stores and fchij s, exam ining the different kinds of grain. ' Old Peter would take a handful! of all sorts' English, Irish, Scotch, American, Eu ropean, and, sj 'reading them on a table would ask the boy to tell the character istics of each sample. The purul was bewildered at first, but he peisevered untilhe became an exert in the busi ness. Very likely the people who knew nothing of these early morning lessons called the youth lucky, as he began to amass wealth, but it is a kind of luck within the reach of every young person who is willing to work for it. Decides For The People. Another decision which strikes terror to the railroad corporation'', and makes the masses correspondingly happy, was lately promulgated by Acting Com missioner Walker, of the geneial land office, who has declined to isstie -any more patents to the Northern Pacific railroad, pending a decision fixed the legal status of tha road in this re gard. He follows the rule laid down by Commissioner Sparks in relation to the California &; Oregon and Oregon &, California roads. The question at issue briefly stated, is that the road was not completed within the time required by law, and that until Congress takes definite action in one way or the other no steps should be taken to place the matter beyond the power of the legis lative branches of the Government to protect public rights. This decision has direct application to the O. &C. R. R. also, and the prospects are favorable that it will not be given the land it claims south of Roseburg. Thus again has the administration shown that it is laboring for the people's iuterests. Either our young men are growing older or our oil men are growing younger. Before the war men of forty and forty-five were not classed as young men in this country. They weie called middle-aged men. But now nothing is more common than to hear a man of even forty-five spoken of a3 "a; prom ising young lawyer" or "a young states man." There is good reason for the change. The average of human life is lengthening, and as the increasing re quirements of our civilization grow more complex, a man of middle age will be considered young, if we meas ure him by his knowledge and epe ience. The real young men of the country are glad to have in their ranks a set of lively old boys who claim to be still enjoying the freshness and vigor of youth. Let us imitate Victor Hugo and make our youth do duty as an overcoat until we are gray-headed. Atlanta Constitution. A Kansas pastor has wisely declined an addition of one hundred dollars to his salary, on the ground that the hard est jart "of his labors, heretofore, has been the collection cf his salary, and it would kill him to undertake to collect one hundred dollars more. Much more attention than usual is being; paid to Orpgon mjnea. : How to Hang Pictures. One of the cardinal principals neces 1 . 1 . . eary to learn auout Hanging pictures is the fact that the light on a picture should come from the same side as the light in the picture. A picture highly worked up in de 11 1 t i .1 van saouia ue hung closer to, tne eye than a strong, broad composition, in which all the parts ara put on in masses. Pictures immediately on the line of average sight should be hung flit on the wall, while thosa above it should b slightly tipped forward. Large pictures in heavy frames should never te hung over softs or chairs, that are placed close to the wall. Groups of pictures can only be effec tive when there is harmony in subject and color, and similarity m irainjDg. No grosser absurdities are committed in the way of picture decorations than in the adornment ef walls of the aver age dining room. Representations of strings of fish just hauled from the water and seeming ji "j Bajr iJl vii.., km. givui'o vi dead birds and noble deer struggling in the death agony or fleeing for hfe before their pursuers, are tar irom appetising, ani a perpetual plea lor the doctrine of vegetarianism. But few pictures should ever be hung in the dining room, atid the greatest care should be taken in their selection. Family pictures have no business in any room in the house bnt the fam ily. No one is interested in them ex cept the immediate tamiiy, and not once in a hchdred thousand times is a family picture a thing of beauty, or cab culated to , embellish the barest wall. Marriage cirdficates, Masonic cirtifi cates, or anything of that kind, are not pictures at all, and should never have a fiame about them. Miss Cleveland has settled the moot ea question ot wno is the hrst lady m the land. She settled it herself in the way that meets public applause. One day when there was some house-cleau-iug to be done in the Executive man sion she tied a towel around her head, put on an old calico dress, and with brooa. and dust-pan in hand; went from, room to room and male tamg li vely for a while. The servants, who had never witnessed such h, scene ' in the old mansion, stood aghast, but thatjtions of the held,, this falh clidn t. deter; her from going through with the work. Of course there is going to be a terrible outcry -oa tne part of polite society- xu b imh v iii not dethrone .Miss Cleveland from the prouu position wuicu tne American people with a Joud voice will accord to her. The masses of the people vill stand by her and uphold her as the first lady of the land. Such homely common sense as she. displays is right up to American ideas. The woman who knows how to take care" of her home is the only queen that Americans crown. Courier-Journal. Grant's Kind words Gcnerai Grant to General Buckner. "I have witnessed since my sickness, said General Grant, "just what I wished to see ever since the war harmony and good feeling between the sections. I have always contended that if there had been no'odv left but the soldiers we should have had peace in a year. There are only two that I know of that do not seem to be satisd on the south ern side; and we have some on ours who failed to accomplish as much as they wished, or wdio did not get wanned up to the fight until it was all over, who have not had quite full satisfaction. The great majority, too, of those who did not go into the war have long since grown tired of the long controversy. We may now well look forward to a perpetual peace at home and a national strength that will screen us from any foreign complication". A Washington dispatch of the 17th has the following concerning a recent decision of Judge Doady. The general iand ofiice has received information that Judge Deady, of the Oregcn circuit court, has decided th pre-emption en tries can only be canceled by proceed ings in the courts. It has been the practice of the land office to cancel pre emption entries upon sufficient proof of non-compliance of the law, or want of good faith on the part of the pre emptor. ActingCommissioner Walker has officially informed his informant that the practice and views cf the law followed and entertained in the general land office will not be changed before the supreme court cf the United States shall have had an opportunity of pass ing upon the points raised by Judge Deadv. A boy twelve years old wa3 the im portant witness in a lawsuit One of the lawyers, after cross-questioning him severely, said: "Your father has been talking to you how to testify, hasn't he? "Yes," said the boy. "Now," said the lawyer, "just tell us how your father told you to testify." "Well," said the loy, modest! v, "father told me the lawyers would try and tangle me iu my testimony; but if I would just be careful and tell the truth, I could tell the same thing every time."

Campbell, trustees of the Odd Fellows orphan home, located near East Port land, have issued a circular stating that it is their unanimous wish to have the building finished during theg present year so that it may be put to use at the earliest possible moment. The fund for the home up to date has boon made up of voluntary donations from subordinate lodges, Rebekah Degree, lodgeg and encampments, and individ ual contributions. The trustees aak that thesa be continued. A correspondent- from Harisburg writes to the Oregonian: "The new mines on Blue river, Lane county, are creating a good deal of excitement. There was some work done on the crop ings of the ledge now known as the 'Treasure' some sixteen years ago; bufr the solid ledge is now surely found. It is forty inches thick on the cropping, and fifty inches thick at a depth often feet. A true assay of the rock has not yet been made, but it is certainly very rich, much of it containing gold visible to the naked ?ye. Some very fine specimens have been picked up in the last few days. The 'Treasure' was dia coveied and is owned by Messrs Sejr more, Gubert and Downer,"
