Southern Oregon is bound to become the great fruit producing section of the stale. Within the past two years over a million peach trees have been set out in Jackson county alone. Many of I them will produce some fruit this year. Mr Stewart one of the members of the Iowa j press excursion, which visited this state two years ago, purchased a place out there and has set out 3500 peach trees, and Mr. Whit man, another of the same party, has set out an extensive orchard of Bartlett pears. The prospect of the near completion of the connec tion cf the rail with California has made the people of the .southern portion of the state ju bilant and infused new life into that section. - Prohibition" Amendment Leagte. The League was called to order by the Presi dent W. F, Benjamin, and opened with a se lection by the Junior Band. After reading of the journal of last meeting and a song by the Junior choir, Lee Bell was elected Secretary. The regular speaker of the evening, Rev. G. V. Miller, being absent, S. F. Floed gave us an excellent address in which he showed why ever body should vote for the amend ment next November. After a recess of five minutes a quartette entitled "Torpedo and the Whale," was rendered clfecively, five minutes speeches by James Chenoweth and Will Walker, a recitation by Earl Gaddis. Hon.

With a piece by the band the meeting ad journed to meet m two weeks. Sec, Tiif. Road .;!ko;';ii the Siskivovs. The re is considerable speculation and anxiety among residents at the extreme south of the state as to what route the Southern Pacific company will follow in constructing the rail road from' the state line to Ashland. The distance in an air line is only about fifteen miles aud by the stage route it is only about twenty. But it is considerable farther by the old line surveyed for the railroad and there are no less than eight tunnels to be constructed most of them, however, short. The main lnnnr 1 tbroufh the summit is 1012 feet in o length and of this 2000 feet is completed The next largest tunnel is at Buck rock, and ot this 400 feet is done. But this old route is ro circuitous that in one place nine miles of road must be built to gain two and a quar ter miles, and an effort is being made to find a more direct route, even if a heavier grade and longer tunnel is necessary. Owing to the 'peculiar formation of the Siskiyou range it is uncertain whether this is practicable or not If the road is built over the old route it will furnish some fine scenery, embracing views of the whole Rogue river country, and from the south end of the big tunnel a view of the Salman and Scott mountain ranges, and Mount Shasta, looming up 14,451 feet, can be een for 100 miles. local jirevities.

DOUG I, AH COVXTi: Eijitor Review: As the intelligent immi grant will instinctively inquire into all the natural as well as social advantages of the country which he contemplates visiting with the view of seeking a new home, V that which will offer the greatest inducements is the place where he will be mo3t likely to pitch his tent. To furnish such information is the object of this essay. It is too often the case that interested parties will write up a country in such glowing and highly colored language that while it is pleasing to read, it fails to impress the reader with any real merits as to the country described,! though never so truthful; because the immigrant has So often been imposed upon by sharper! and designing "boom workers," with the ulterior view of making a few dollars at the expense of the immigrant and ultimately to the injury of the country by imaginative gazetteers and journalists or their hired scriviners. In this short essay we propose to give a plain unvar nished talc, believing that "honesty is the best policy," that if the truth concerning our county will not bear inspection, and that the real merits of our soil, climate and social advan tages are wanting it would be vain to try to create a "boom" by pen ink and paper. The urea of Douglas county is more than that of Connecticut, and four times larger than Rhode Island. It lies in a sort of hol- ow square, bounded on the north by the Cala pooia, on the east by the Cascades, on the south by the Canyon and on the west by the Coast Ranges of mountains. It is bisected by the South Umpqua river which rises in the southeast part and empties into the Pacific ocean on the northwest; joined near the cour ier of the county by the North Umpqua w hich rises in the Cascade mountains south of Dia mond peak. ' Upon the South Umpqua there are very fertile valleys of bottom land now mostly occupied by settlers who came to this valley prior to the "war of the Rebellion. Nearly all the bottom lands clear of timber have been long since settled where pence and plenty now abounds. There are considerable government lands yet in this county which when cleared of timber make good farms. The tributaries to the lUmpquas also afford nice little fertile lxittoilr lands that are being frequently entered as homesteads in the Land Office at Roseburg. These, however, have to be cleared of timber as praiie lands have long since been taken up. The county is well watered, there being scarcely a quar ter section of laud in the county that has not living water u; ;iu it, either in the form of a spring or a creek. The bottom lands are very rich and produce all the cereals and grasses grow in this county quite bountifully. When well cultivated the yield in grain is above the average in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Deaiglas county produced in 1SS0, 439,19s bushels of wheat, 25,633 bushels of corn, 39, 254 bushels of barley, 347,830 bushels of oats, 19,729 tons of hay, 52,412 bushels of potatoes, and her orchard products amounted to 54,133 dollars. Her live stock was as follows: horses 5000, cows 4,330, other cattle S,559, sheep 133'3I9 swine 15,446; 511,382 pounds of wool, 122,740 pounds of butter and 16,424 pounds of cheese. Now let us compare the above with Doug las county, Illinois, i prairie country near Chicago. See census 1SS0. Douglas county Illinois, 1S80, 464,278 oats; bailey 196 (hut 3,335,008 bu. of corn) 23,464 ions of hay, 32,391 bushels of potatoes, and her or chard products only about half of ours, being only 27,332 dollars. This comparison shows that we possess all the elements of wealth as to food products. Add to this a mild and salubrious climate and you have a county not the least desirable. We do not know what the future w ill hold in store for us, but up to the present a failure of crops is unknown in this county. Stock raising is comparatively very cheap as but little feed for the winter season is required, the summers are not oppressively hot, no cyclones, no strong winds, but very little lightning and thunder, very few pests to man, beast, orchards or grain. The foregoing are some 01 me advantages 01 uougias county Oregon. On some future occasion I will speak of others, such as our mines, lumber fishing interest; all of which is immense. The foregoing is a plain unvarnished story of a few of our attractions. We do no claim to be in the garden of Eden. Nature has done much, but labor must do its share to fully develop this county now in its inlancy as to culture. Give as a little more energy and a fair share of capital to aid us and ere long Douglas county will Ik: one of the richest counties in the state. Ar;is, Ereticli Settlement Items. Beautiful weather.

Ladders were raised as soon as possible and as many as could be were taken out, and a large number of them w ere unable to effect their escape. At 4 o'clock the entire Rich-, mond hotel and St. James liall and other property in the same block were doomed to speedy destruction. iThe whole place burned like tinnier and the corridor in center of the building acted as a great funnel, ami as the flames streamed upwards the guests found themselves imprisoned by walls of fire.

Washburnc gorge broke last night, early this morning the river began to rise rapidly and a gorge was formed below the city. The ice carried everything with it, and struck the immense warehouse of the Northern Pacific, one of the largest in the world, and the workmen narrowly escaped drowning, and in less than two hours from the time of the gorge the water was in the second stories of riveT boarding houses which had been built on wjiat was considered high grcund. The warehouse, which w nearly 700 feet in length, was moved bodily over thirty feet and sent crushing against the bluffs, and the loss on this building will be over $15,000. Tke meadow land south of Bismarck, com prising 6000 acres, is now one vast sea, and is flowing over a newly made channel by this body of surplus water at the rate of ten miles an hour. The river at this point, which is usually three miles wide, Li now six miles wide. The Northern Pacific trains will hardly be able to cross the river for several days, and Bismarck will probably be the western termi nus fjr a week. Supt. Graham rittemlped t 1 g. to Mandan, but the water on the west side of the river is flowing over the track four feet deep and the fires in the cugine were put out. Mandan i-; submerged and the people in the lower part of the city have been moving in to upper stories of their dwellings. All small dwellings on the banks of the stream have icen swept away, and steamboats lying at Kockhavcn are in danger. The high trestle on the Northern Pacific at this point has been iamaged. At I o'clock the new channel, which the river has cut across the prairie, let out the ice, and the river is falling slowly, but the worst lias not come. The ice went out at Fort Bufurd this morning with a rise of thirty feet, ihe highest ever known. Tins flood v ill not reach here until Saturday, when there will probably be terrible destruc tion .

Los Ani.ei.es, March 12, George Jones, proprietor of the New York Times, arrive ! yesterday with his daughter, Mrs. Ireland, who is travelling for her health. In an inter view regarding volitic3 Mr. Jones said: "The Times opposed Blaine in 1SS4 and will oppose him again if he is nominated by the republi- cans in 18SS. He is man whose whole policy is all for Blaine and the rest may get what they can. I Ie made innumerable mistakes during the last campaign, and would have stood a much belter show of election had he remained in his modest Maine home. Ac- cepting an invitation to dinner given by Jay Could and Lusccl Sage was enough to con- tlemn him, and the famous 'Rum, Romanism and Rebellion' alliteration routed him horse, foot and dragoons. As to whom the rcpubli- cans will .nominate next time I cannot tell, blame is w orking lor it with his whole soul and may get the nomination, but he will never be elected. If I were allowed to place a man in nomination for the presidency, I should name Judge Walter Q. Gresham, of Indiana. . Cleveland w ill be nominated by the democrats for re-election, because they cannot do other wise, lie is the first man in his party, and his administration has been a most admirable one, and receives the approbation of the whole world. Hill has lost prestige in New York by devoting more of his time to securing the democratic nomination for president than to affairs of stale, but he will not reach it, as Cleveland will be nominated," In reply to a question Mr. Jones said "Yes, I voted for Cleveland, and I will do so again. 1 am a strong republican, too. Refcrrinr? to matters on the Pacific coast, he said he was astonished at the wwlertul 0 , growth of the coast, anil says he w ill invest in property here. He will visit Santa Barbara and San Diego, and will also go to San Fran cisco. He will remain on the coast for about three months. Moss R eea jt 11 red. Portland, Or., March 21. C. II.

I think of all life's missions The teacher's weary way, Possesses much more sorrow, More sadness day by day, Possesses, without sympathy, More tears than any other; Then oh! how thoughtful we should be In word toward one another. I think we should strew roses, fair, Along our brother's way Should help the lower on the stair Remembering clay is clay. I'd rather bear the bitter smart Of all a heart's unrest, Than plant a (horn to rankle In anothcrs teacher's breast. I know it is true wisdom That rosemary and thyme Crushed send forth sweeter odors Than expanded in their prime, They could ofier, so with teachers When we weary find the way, Must remember lhat crushed spirits, Bear their sweetness day by day. Must remember that through suffering, We the teachers path have trod; That our brother, no less noble, Bows beneath the same fierce rod. Then when all the world oppresses Half our sweetnesses to another, ' What Is nobler what is brighter Than kind words of one another? M. TO J1E BETTER UOJJ.V. Agreeable with natural science, intelligence has its terrestrial incipiency in the spire of grass, in the seed lhat geiminates and in fact in every vitalized organism which is imparted by the unseen plasiic power, that grand in finite entity. Tlie more favorable the circum stances and the more congenial the conditions the better will those things grow and develope. Their development and improvement would become perennial with each successive year under the most favorable circumstances. Not only the case w llh the vegetable kingdom but with the animal also. Such being the case, of what great importance and intrinsic value it must be to improve the human species. We all know that our habits, our food etc., have muc.-. to do with our physical and mental con dition. We know that dissipation or any kind of excess is injurious to us mentally and constitutionally, therefore whatsoever has such an effect is injurious, not only to the individual but also to the race. Such are in the cata logue of sins and crimes so that whosoever commits those things sins against all that is good, against himself and against humanity and is instrumental in transmitting those evils to posterity. Though such an individual may not become a father, his influence is of a with ering, blighting character in society. In re gard to so important a question we should know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth There is nothing good about any thing that we ought not to know and if there is any thing bad about it we ought to know that too. We ought to know the true and false in order to be able to discriminate one from the other. We cannot sin and be happy. It is no wonder that so many tfe formed and partially insane and ieliotic foreign ers appear in our country since they are the offspring of oppressed and half starved parents with a spark of hope kept alive by cheap beer or Irish whiskey which temporarily stimulates but ultimately effeminates. It is no wonder that their progeny have the same incUnations. It is no wonder lhat throughout thc entire world there is so much crime since it has become a disease and to a great degree a spe cies of insanity.. It is no womltr that so lew in proportion to the maximum number attiin to any useful sphere in life since so many have inherited an abnormal existence. There are inherited diseases of a corroding loathsome character coursing through the veins and as tcrial system of thousands of our people, much of which has been imported from all parts 0f I the world awating an onportunity to make havoc and devastation amongst thousands of innocent offspring; Oh! how many cenera- tions must suffer for the ingratitude of vicious and foobsh people. Arc you aware that when you transgress against all nature and all mankind, that you violate the whole constitution of society? Men and wo-1 nun should not flatter themselves with the ideas that thev will snend the best nart of are inexorable they will have lived shameful lives and must die deplorably. In order for succesding generations to be born belter, mankind must live belter and become more temperate, more virtuous, more humane, less selfish and more scientific. And more relig ious. Ed. - L.

We don't want to lose our liberty without a fair fight. When I was a very small boy my grandfather took mc on his knc3 and said these words, "Now I am retiinr. old and fouffht seven vearsnnder Wash O O O . . J ington for your liberty and sometimes bare footed at that, and we want our freedom; now when you get to be a man I want you to main tain it." I was only ten years old fifty years I ago but I remember him yet, he used liquor and so did the family but did not get drunk, and I never get drunk and don't go much on drunkenness but I can't go back on something 1 that has saved my life at two different times. Had I notjiad brandy the time I fell off the harrow I would not be alive to-day, my time would have been up. But here I am and hope the time will ne ver come when I .can't buy stimulants when ever I want them. Must I be deprived of buying what I need in a free country because some men take too much of a good thing, too much of a good thing makes it a bad thing of anything that is good.
