A course of lectures at Grace
church for the Wednesday evenings
during Lent has been arranged. The
first lecture will be at seven this

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

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.

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
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
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
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.
Mayer Page has returned from Ta

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.

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."
