One of the most enjoyable concerts ever given in Astoria comc3 off nt Ross' opera bouse to-morrow evening. At Sacramento, Cal., the river is only eight feet deep. Last year, this time, it was 2G feet deep: dry weather does it. If the sky is clear at snnset this af ternoon, shortly after twilight bepins, the planet Mercury may be seen close to the sun, a very unu9nal sight. Between the O. B. & N. boats, the Lurlinc the City of Sellwood and the Electric it looks as though the Westport folks would be well sup plied with steamer transportation to and from Astoria. A course of lectures at Grace church for the Wednesday evenings during Lent has been arranged. The first lecture will be at seven this evening by Bev. Mr. Loveridge, of New York, who is in temporary charge of Trinity church, Portland. There was a tremendous racket last night, with horns, tin pans and cow bells, the occasion being the chari vari of a newly married couple. It was an improvement on the Salvation army music, but yet a little of such outlandish noise goes a great way. Sheriff Smith has the county tax roll to cellect: but seventeen days more remain, when the tax will be come delinquent. Two things are sure death and taxes and as they are inevitable the latter might as well be paid before being made com pulsory. In tho United States circuit court last Monday, tho motion made by the Olatsop Mill company for a new trial in the suit brought against them by Tatum & Bowen was denied. Plain tiffs in this suit were awarded a ver dict by a jury about n month ago for the valne of machinery and boilerB sold to defendants. Before Judge May yesterday justice was dished out at tho usual rates. MinnieThompson, a lady whose beau ty was in proportion to her style, was charged with stealing bed clothes from Bosie Taylor, a sister of Billee Tayler'e: a jury said Minnie was not guilty. Biddy Doyle will be up be fore his honor at 10 this morning. M. Devol's case will subsequently have a hearing. Jas. Petit, who banged Ah Chung in the eye, cheerfully put up S5, and Constable Welch started to look up a picked nine for to-day's game. An amusing incident is reported from Oregon City. Some time ago a young man aged twenty went to Mr. Burney, the register of the Ore gon City land office to file on a piece of timber land. That gentleman ex plained to him that not being of age, be could not fill the legal require ments. "But I must get that land," said tho young man. Is there no possible way to secure it?" At last Mr. Burney jokingly told him that ifhe were married he would have no difficulty in filing on a timber claim. The young man disappeared, but two weeks afterward showed up at the land office with a blushing bride on bis arm. Bio had acted on the register's advice, wooed and won a wife, and was enabled to file on the coveted piece of timber land. Where there's a will there's a way. TWO MEN DROWNED. The Body of One Uerovered Yesterday, A fatal accident occurred on John Day's river last Monday evening, by which two men lost their lives. Their names were Clansinand Cuskic; they were working on John Kinney's ranch, c itting wood, and came to town last Monday. About five o'clock they left for home, both being drunk. They got up to tho mouth of John Day's in their boat, pnlled it over one fiat, got in again, went as far as another, pnlled it over that, and were heading for the channel, when two bystanders on the shore saw the boat capsize and a splashing in the water. Presently a dog which the men had with them swam to hhore. being the only sober one of the three. The other two were drowned and the boat, bottom up, drifted to shore, with a piece broken off the gunwale. The body of Jacob Cuskie was re covered yesterday afternoon, about ten feet from where ho went down. The body of Clausin has not yet been recovered. Clausin was a single man. Cuskie was married, and leaves a wife and an eight months old child in a destitute condition. "A Night Off." "A Night Off" was greatly enjoyed at the Academy of Music last even ing by a large audience. This de lightful comedy, adapted from the German by Augustin Daly, is one of the brightest and most ingenious pieces of its kind in the modern dra matio repertoire. Clever in plot, sim ple in structure, exhilarating in hu mor it is "a thing of beauty and a joy forever." One can relish its divert ing episodes over and over again with unabated zest The audience last night, time and time again, fairly ex ploded with laughter, and the same sight will doubtless be witnessed every evening during the week.

Absolute accuracy is not claimed for the above list: it-is very hard to get exact information, but the list here published is believed to be full and complete. It gives a total of 130 salmon canning establishments on the Pacific coast Goins After The Seals. Capt Paul Boyton came down the river yesterday morning and went to Elk creek where he expects to get a few seals, and sealions. He brought down some of his traps with him in cluding his famous rubber suit, which, when he puts it on, makes him look a little like a seal himself. With this suit on, he will float around Tillamook Rock, and after the seals have cot used to him he will coax a few of the phocae to go with him to Chicago, where they will be ted on lake nsn. He doesn't rjronose to tackle the seals in the water, for a good sized seal would have more fun with him in the water than he would have with the seal. He will sort of play it low down on the seal and wait till the seal goes to sleep on the rocks when he will put a sort of rigging over him and send him up here for shipment The seal will be sulky for a day or so, but will then begin to eat again, un less now and then, when a seal begins to think of his folks and the little seals he left behind him: then he refa- s to eat. and might as well be thrown back in the water; if not he will die. The captain takes a photographer witu nim and will have some interest ing pictures of Boyton and the seals snoozing on the rocks. He also has a newspaper man with him to report the whole business for the Chicago newspapers. If a big bull seal starts to bite Boy ton or chase him in the water the photographer if he is spry enough can get some very interestine views. The captain has two troupes of per forming seals traveling in tho east. They are easy to train and give an interesting exhibition. He has one man in his employ who doesn't do anything but train seals. His broth er works for a railroad company and doesn't do anything but seal trains. Capt Boyton, who is the best ad vertised man in the United States, will also look around for a few moun tain lions, sea otter and if anybody has two or three likely young bears, sound in wind and limb, he would do well to see the captain before he leaves. Who Is Your Best Friend? Your stomach of course. Why? Be cause if it is out of order you are one of the most miserable creatures liv ing. Give it a fair, honorable chance and see if it is not the best friend you have in the end. Don't smoke in the morning. Don't drink iu the morn ing. It you must smoke and drink wait until your stomach is through with breakfast You can drink more and smoke more in the evening and it will tell on you less. If your food ferments and does not digest right, if you are troubled with Heartburn, Dizziness of the head, coming np of the food after eating, Biliousness. In digestion, or any other trouble of the stomach, yon had best use Green's August Flower, as no person can use it without immediate relief. PERSONAL MENTION. Mayer Page has returned from Ta coma. Vice Consul Cherry is confined to his honse by illness. Wm. Driscoll returned from Port land yesterday. While there he had his injured right eye removed. The Jse of Modern MnV People are fond of saying that "man kind is growing wiser and weaker.' Hut is it really so? Let us glance at the facts. According to the latest sta tistics tnere are more centenarians now living than at any nrevious time m the history of the world. Why? Because of the great discoveries in medical science which afford him immunity from diseases that formerly devastated mankind. Greatest of them all is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, the best blood-purifier and renovator of the age. Scrofula, fever-sores, tumors, un sightly ulcers and eruDtions vanish mvp magic beneath its beneficent influence. Try some of those fine salt pickles in kegs at Thompson & Ross'.

He Cut Government Timber. Deputy United States Marshal Waite arrived from Tillamook this morning, having in charge Captain H. B. Johnson, who is alleged to have cut a large quantity of government timber near the bay. Johnson is master of the little steamer General Oarjield, and is ono of the many persons whom the Gar diner Mill company have engaged to supply them with timber. Johnson is a man of large means, and will make a bard fight no doubt, to es cape conviction, because upon his fate hinges the future of about fifty other men. "This government timber cut ting business is getting to be too old," says United States district at torney Lewis L. McArtbur, "and I shall see if I can't put a stop to it." Telegram.
