Religious. Quite a number of Roseburg
people attended church at Civil Bend last
Sunday, where Rev. W. G. Miller preached
an excellent sermon at 11 o'clock after which
there was four young ladies immersed and re
ceived into full fellowship in the church. We
are pleased to learn that the woik of christian
ity is progressing in our borders. May many
more be brought to a saving knowledge of the
Tim Hoi; Outlook. The price of hog
meat will probably be good this fall, and the
farmers that have as many shotes as they can
fatten to advantage will make some money.
Every farmar that wants to do the test for
himself won't bother with scrub hogs bat keep
hogs of the best stock, such as the Beiksliire,
that fatten "easily. He does not keep this
kind of stock to see it grow tall and race with
the cattle, but from birth its destiny is to get
fat and be killed.

A Phenomenon. Advices from Grant
county report that Lake Malheur, a body of
water that covers more than seventy-five
square miles, and has been without outlet, is
rushing through a subterranean passage with a
great roar. The noise is so loud and the
shrinkage of water is so great as to attract
much attention. It is said that miles of for
merry submerged land is now visible. The
lake receives the water of the Blitzen river
and never overflows. It U situated on a rich
level plain with low shores. It is connected
with Lake Harney by a shallow channel sixty
feet wide and 600 feet long. If the subsidence
prove permanent it may throw the Oregon
Pacific survey some miles further south. Ex,
The Covnty Fair. -Again and lor the

effort to make this exhibit a success. The
grounds are being put in first class order, and
all will be done that can be, with labor and a
reasonable outlay of money to make this exhib
it a grand success. It now only remains for
the people to come and bring some ol their
choice products to compare with their neigh
lior's, and in this way they may be able to in.
crease the value of their agricultural products,
and also of their live stock. Many premiums
are offered, a list of which can be seen in an
other column. Besides the exhibits and races
there will I addresses and other intellectual
exeicises each day, also some amusements
The annual address will be delivered by Gov.
Pcnnoyer, and will no doubt be a grand intel
lectual treat. He is not a Douglas connty
production however, but all should come out
and see him and hear him speak, perhaps of
some of the big things that do grow -in this
countv. Let everybody turn out in one grand
army and partake of a three day's feast of the
fat things ot the land. Now in order to ac
commodate those who have no private con
veyance a train will be run from Roseburg
and return each day; fare for the round trip
50 cents for all over 12 years old, and 25
cents for all under that age. There will also
e a restaurant kept on the ground where all
that hunger may eat. These few facts ought
to be enough to induce everyone to come, and
moreover there will be thousands oi things
there which I have not space here to mention.

an engagement of fur weeks at the Park

and in Seattle, Victoria and other northern
cities the chief sua e s of the dramatic season .
It is composed of twenty six young lads ami
misses, whose csrt.'f.iiy tranud voices, ednca
ted musical ability, an I dramatic tnk-nt have
united to place the ogranintida uj-.m a plane
of excellt-nre equal to that occupied by any
opera company ever seen upon this coast.
The tiH'inlxris have I .ten brought to the de
gree of musical perfection they possess by the
energetic training of T. Wilinott Eckert, the
well known San Francisco tenor singer, under
whose personal direction each opera 6f the
repertoire is presented. That Roseburg is
favored by a pesformanee of this celebrated
company is due to the fact that the propritors,

of a creditable nature, and was well apprecia

The above named circus w in Eoseburg
fas: Thursday in alt its dazzling splendor, a
full account of which we cmild not give last
week owing to the fact that we went to press
belore the show was- over. The "small boy
was up betimes to see the arrival ol the train
and unloading of animals. The procession at 10
A. u. made a good Mi.ming with its two, four,
six and eight horse teams of tine horses, alo
six Shetland ponies, the four c?mel team and
the two trick mules drawing wagons, besides
the band wagons and the six elephants. The
open cages of lions, "tigers, hyenas and the
clowns and lady riders also the steam caliope,
which by the way was one of the principal
features, composed an imposing cavalcade
Then came the usual side show with its extra
attractions such as the dwarf, the giant, the
fat woman, the wild men and the Alabama
minstrels, In the afternoon- the mahagerie
and circus were tbe main attractions. The
principal features of the circus were the bare
back riding, the tumblers and limber men, the
statuary, and chief above all was the trained
elephant, which was the leading feature.
The acrobats, aerial performances, Russian
athletes, the Roman gladiators, Hippodrome
races Captain Bogardus & Sons the champion
all round shots of the world, and the bicycle
The management ol this circus is very good'
no gambling games being allowed here, and
we can truly say that much is due to Col.
Chas. Seeley the press representative for fair
and square dealing in paying bills and liberal
dealing with the press. They were the most
gentlemanly set of circus, men that ever visited

Gentlemen Seven years ago I contracted
an exceedingly bad case of blood poison, I
tried a physician, the best at command, but
secured no benefit. My throat began to
get sore, and my body covered with sores
and ulcers. Going from bad to worse, I
felt that my grave must be reached in the
near future. I eave uo the doctors' treat"
ment, and with a despairing hope I com
menced takinir vour medicine.. I began to
improve from the first bottle, and in a short
time tne ulcers neaiea, ana my skid uwrai

One year ago a case of catarrh developed

but could not cure me ; but two bottles ol

What True Merit mil Do.
The unprecedented sale of Boschee's Ger
man Syrup wit,hin a few years, has astonished
the world. It is without doubt the safest and
best remedy ever discovered for the speedy
and effectual cure of Coughs, Colds and the
severest Lung troubles. It acts on an en
tirely different principle from the usual pre
scriptions given by Physicians, as it does not
dry up a cough and leave the disease still in
the system, but on the contrary removes the
cause of the trouble, heals the parts affected
and leaves them in a purely healty condition.
A bottle kept in the house for use when the
diseases make their appearance, will save doc
tor's bills and a long spell ol serious illness.
A lrif I will convince you of these facts. It is
positively sold by all druggists and general
dealers in the land. Price, 75 cts , large bottles.

Tuesday night the Hon. John M. Bloss de
livered the final lecture before otp; institute;
the subject was Oregon. He had prepared
a large map, nine feet by eight following the
mountain ranges the rivers and the valleys
and its railroads. When compared with little
Rhode Island, which he had placed in the
corner of the map it was easy to understand
that Oregon was a state of magnificent dis
tances, and w hen he had descrilied the great
timber Ijelts of Oregon, pine and cedar its
rich gold fields its valley filled with waving
wheat, beautiful apples, luscious peaches, and
its immense crops of prunes, it was seen that
it was not only a state of magnificent distance
but infinite possibilities.
- lie took the teachers, in imagination,
through the state, starting with their trip over
Siskiyou mountains from California; described
the welcome they would receive when they
i reached the foot of the mountains at Ashland,
from the southern normal school then to
Roseburg where they would be welcomed
by Prof. John B. Horner, in their new and
beautiful school building. One could almost
see the little city, the river, and the salmon,
and the speckled trout.
He paid a beautiful tribute tothe people of
Willamette valley at Albany, Salem and Port
land. He described in graphic language the
scenery ol the Columbia, Mt, Hood, Multno
mah falls, with its plunge of 800 ft,, the curi
osity of the Dalles, and his trip to the Nelson
placer gold mine near Baker city.
He took his audience from snowy peaks,
through torturous canons, over fertile valleys
to the shores of the Pacific. He described the
climate a; delightful and paid a tribute to the
energy and ability of the State Supt. of public
instruction, E. B. McElroy whe was so care
fully managing the educational interests of the
mey ouua a scnool house on it and steps are
being taken in that direction now. There is
also a good lot set apart and donated for a
cuurcn wnicn we nope 10 be able to build in a
short time.
Politics are very quiet so far in this county.
Democrats are still sore because of their de
feat in June and Republicans arc a little afraid
to make much noise for lear the tables might
be turned in November. This county is not
likely to make much stir through the campaign
but that need not hinder us from voting and it
is my opinion that Union county wiil at the
November election poll as large a majority for
Cleveland and Thurman as she did for the Re
publican candidates in June and so ought
every county in the state.
Hilgard is booming. Booming because she
is no longer a little out of the way place with
nothing to attract ones attention but a single
lumber yard and water tank. She is now a
town, surveyed and laid off in town lots 30X
100 feet and streets 66 feet wide. Lots are
selling at figures ranging from $15 to $60 and
selling lively too. There is already in two
weeks time one good dwelling gone up and
the family moved in, and a j;ood hotel in 1
course of construction. Also our enterprising
merchant E. P. Stephens is building a good
two story store. 24x48 which he intends to
stock up with a fine assortment of dry goods
groceries glass ware crockery etc etc.

Horace has declared in a sufficiently hack
neyed passage that neither gods, nor men
nor booksellers, can stand the minor poet; but
this remark, whether true or not, appears
to exercise but very little weight with
the minor poet himself. Year by year with
a perseverance worthy of a better cause, he
presents himself and his little volume of verse
to the "chorus of indolent irresponsible re
viewers," and with an ingenuous confidence
demands their suffrages. What ensues is only
too well known, and need not be enlarged on
here. But when the bilious critic sallies, out
on the 'warpath as he invariably does in
his paint and feathers, and "carrying his
tomahawk along,' a heavenly pity (we con
fess it) it bedews our eyes, for we remember
that what is spqffcto the luckless singer, and
that day m his life is not to be marked with
white chalk. But yet, notwithstanding the
war of extermination that has been waged
against him, the minor poet continues to live,
and even contrives to increase and multiply.

A loeomotivo Engineer ft Km Decline
Money for Baring Saved the Train.
Last Friday night, as the Oregon express
was sweeping around a sharp curve between
Grant's Pass and Roseburg, the engineer, Ed
Elliot, saw that the bridge spanning a deep
ravine but a few yards in advance of the rapid
ly approacmng train was on fire. He imme
diately applied the lull force of air brakes, and
not a moment too soon. Seven bents of the
high trestle had already been burned, and the
train was stopped barely in time io escape be
ing hurled into the yawning chasm below.
There were about fifty first-class passengers
on the train at the time, and on the hat being
passed through the Pullmans the sum of $70
was raised among the grateful occupants to re
ward the engineer for his faithfulness in the
midst of danger to the trust reposed in him
Elliott thanked the donors, but positively
refused to accept the money, adding that "he
had simply done his duty, and that the com
pany paid him for his services." The passatv
gers relumed to their car with a hearty appre
ciation of the true heart that in this instance
beat teneath the greasy waistcoat of the loce
motive driver, and with a keener sense than
they ever possessed before of their complete
dependence for safety on "the man in the cab,"
who often saves the lives of those, on the

TnarrlcTOu. We are glad to make the cor
rection. But this is new proof that the sys
tem is a most unreasonable one. Better alio1
those who finish the course of any of a number
of public schools in the state to teach in the
rest of the public schools without the formal
ity ot passing examinations and securing
county certificates or state diplomas. The
Drain "academy" is not nearly so efficient in
the turning out of good school teachers as the
Salem high school, or a number of other pub
lie schools in the state. This outrage is more
extensive than the public knew. The priv-
lege of the Monmouth "n-mnal" school was
too great an outrage on the educational system
of the state the same privilege possessed by
the Drain "normal" school is worse. The
not legislature should and will make short
work of repealing the privilege. Statesman.
