The Woman's Temperance Union
met on the 9tk at the residence of Prof.
Wise. The meeting was well attended.
After a season of devotional exercises
the business of the Association was
transacted. Officers for the ensuing
year were fleeted: viz.. President, Mrs.
Prof. Wise; Vice-President's, Mrs.
Delamatyr, Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Schild
knecht and Mrs. Backus; Correspond
ing Secretary, Mrs. Spurlock; Record
ing Secretary, Mrs. Duke; Treasuier,
Mrs. C. Parmele; Agent for ' Our Un
ion," Mrs. C. P. Smith; Mrs. Pollock,
chairman of the Literary committee.
Business over, the Society adjourned
to meet again on Thursday the 16th,
at three o'clock P. M, at the residence
of Mrs. D. II. Wheeler. The ladies of
the city that have an interest in the
Temperance work, are cordially invi
ted to this meeting.
The Reading Room on Main Street
is now very tastefully fitted up and
ha3 a very homelike appearance. We
wish it could be patronized more by
the people as an evening resort for a
few moment's chat, and a friendly, so
cial interchange of our wants and needs
from time to time. That fills our no
tion of the best uses of a reading room
and library in a sjnall town that has
no other place of meeting for business
men or public men other than the tav
ern, office or saloon. We hope the Li
brary may be enlarged and made cir
culating at an early date and as an
hesa of better times seem to be
ing, and a better state of feeling, with
more inclination to work together and
to encourage and foster public senti
ment in favor of advancement and
better education on home affairs and
what may be called fireside political
economy, perhaps some one will now
step forward and furnish funds to put
a good Library ea its feet.

Murder ear Glenwooi.
From a Glenwood Opinion Extra,
kindly sent us by that paper we glean
the particulars of the tragedy which
took place near there on Friday last:
Theodoie and Mary Bushup, husband
and wife, living four miles north of
Pacific City, had not found married
life all happiness, and finaly agreed to
separate, which they did on New
Years' day, dividing their property.
On the 10th the husband again made
his appeal ance, and deliberately draw
ing a revolver shot his wife twice; one
shot passing through the shoulder and
the other striking in the neck, near the
main artery. Passing into the yard
he met his wife's father, whom he also
shot twice, in the arm and the left
side. He then fled, stopping to tell a
wood chopper near by what he had
done, and cutting his boots from his
feet a little further on. Shortly after
ward his : orse came back riderless.
Immediate pursuit was made and he
was captured on Saturday. Finding
that his pursuers were upon him heat
tempted to cut his throat with a jack
knife, but only succeeded in severing
the wind pipe about one-third, which
gash the doctors sewed upon his arriv
al at Glenwood.
The uiual plea of Insanity was
brought up, but the Opinion seems to
think it premeditated.

Anatomy from a Chinese Point of View.
The standard medical work in China is
entitled "The Golden Mirror," and com
prises about forty volumes. Turning to
this treatise for information concerning
the structure and position of the internal
organs, the student of medicine discovers
that the lungs are six in number, and are
suspended from the spine, four on one
side and two on the other. It is from
orifices in the lungs that tho human voice
is supposed to emanate, while the breath,
as well as all one's emotions of joy and
sorrow, originate in the pit of the stom
ach. The liver, so writes the ancient Chinese
Esculapius, is the residence of the human
soul, all a person's plans and projects be
ing there devised and thought out. The
brain seems to be considered of no ac
count whatever in connection with any
intellectual processes. Of the circulation
of the blood the native practitioner knows
comparatively nothing, although in every
ailment, however trilling, the pulso is very
carefully examined, tho wise doctor put
ting on a most oracular expression of
countenance while engaged in its exami
nation. The state of the pulse is consid
ered of so much special importance be
cause the five points at which it may be
felt are supposed to be connected with
the five planets, the five elements and the
five colors. It may be here remarked
that "the five planets" include Mercury,
Venus and the three others next the earth.
The elements are water, metal, fire, wood
and earth ; and the colors are white, black,
green, yellow and red. All Chinese,
from the highest to the lowest, believe in
astrology, aud when ill consult the alma
nac at once to discover what would be the
most auspicious day on w hich to send for
a doctor. The delay caused by waiting
for an "auspicious day" must often prove
most advantageous to the patient, giving
nature time to effect a cure before the
physician puts in an appearance and
doses the poor victim to death with his
