That Literary Society.
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

: 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

said the loy, modest! v, "father told me

be careful and tell the truth, I could
tell the same thing every time."

A correspondent- from Harisburg

'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
