F. M. AND E. M. KIMMELL , Editors and Publishers. JAY of the Journal Topics has as sumed the sponsorship of the bucolic press. Ura pro nobis ! HON. A. Y. COLE , of Adams , and Representative Harlan , of York , have been added to the list of candidates for speaker. The Nonpareil is still for Bowman. Central City Nonp'areil. TIIE telegraph announces tiat ] Bos ton railroad men are strenuously op posed to the inter-state commerce bill , which , it is given out , is likely to be come a law. Ordinarily this is pretty good evidence that the people want the bill passed , and the probabilities are bright to that result. COL. BOB INQERSOLL thinks that , were it possible for some corporation to secure a monopoly of the air we breathe , a large portion of the human race would be gasping for breath in a very short time , perforce of delin quency in air tax. At $1,000 a night , Bob could stand it pretty well , how ever. THE B. & . M. folks have now fully decided to put their depot up town , at a cost of $65,000. They will be at a heavy expense , but the B. & M. never waivers at expense when they want to do the right thing by a town. The B. & M. is one of the best roads in Amer ica , and we are glad that they have de cided to put the depot and track nearer the business center of the city. Red i Cloud Chief. A COUNTRY editor in Illinois lately sued thirty subscribers in arrears for his paper , lie obtained judgment against each for the full amount of his claim. About halt of them then came up and made oath they had no more property than the law allowed them as exempt from execution. IIehud this lot arrest ed and sent to jail. The new postal law makes it larceny to take a paper and not pay for it. He was a plucky editor and knew his rights. He will be paid iu the future. THE TRIBUNE recognizes in the Lin coln Democrat one of the fairest , man liest publications in the west , but feels entirely at a loss to explain its unwar ranted strictures on Dr. William M. Knapp , of York , the newly appointed superintendent of the asylum for in sane. The doctor's professional ability is unquestioned. We see nothing in the practice oi medicine that necessar ily ostracises the physician from the pursuit of politics. On the whole the Democrat's exceptions are not well taken or just. OREGON LETTER. Lebanon , Linn Co. , Oregon , December Oth , 1SSG. EDITOR TKIHUXR : Through your valua ble paper , I wish to address my many friends in Eed Willow county. About the first question would be , "How do you like Ore gon ? " I think I will like it pretty well ; al though this , like all other countries , has its drawbacks. While TOJ have been having considerable rain and mud , I would have my friends understand that it is not all rain. We have had but one rain to amount to much for almost two weeks , and that came during one night. The two days preceding the rain were as beautiful , sunshiny days as one could wish to see. And now , while I read from the papers of the blizzards and snowstorms in Nebraska , I have only to convince myself that 1 am in the "land of the beautiful , " by simply going to the door and looking out , where the daisies , mari golds and other flowers are in full bloom. There has been no freezing weather here yet to speak of nothing more than a few nights of heavy frosts. I thought" rather strange when I first came here to see the churches so well patronized , when you could go up the streets and see the saloons in ftdl blast , Sundays not excepted ; but after be coming better acquainted and learning that there was a strong democratic element here and also that the people were largely from the South , J did not think it so strange. This , I think , is destined to make one of the finest valleys on the American continent. Although it is admitted to be the finest for wheat , fruits and vegetables , its resources have never been half developed. There are no ditches. The people are southern and in dolent in their ways. Although we have finest timber and plenty of minerals in the hills , there are no manufactories here. The impression that some people would like to give out that this country is all fern , is a mis take. There are what they call their fern lands , only a small per cent , of the land , however , but the greater portion of Willam ette Valley is as fine a country as one need wishto find. Terhaps , if this does not find its way to the waste basket , I may come again. Joux G. EATOX. Beggs' Cherry Cough Syrup Will relieve that cough almost instantly and make expectoration easy. Acts simul taneously on the bowels , kidneys and liver , thereby relieving the lungs of that soreness and pain and also stopping that tickling sensation in the throat by removing the cause. One trial of it will convince any one that it has no equal on earth for coughs and colds. Mcllillcn fc Weeks have secured the sale of it and will guarantee every bottle to jjive satisfaction , -A DIPHTHERIA. A SCKE CUBE FOR THE TCKJIIBLE DISORDER. From the Missouri Democrat. Please publish the following treatment of diphtheria. It has been used by myself and others to whom 1 have given it , in over one thousand cases without a failure. It will al ways cure if the treatment is commenced be fore the diphtheria membrane extends into the air tubes which is known by great diffi culty of.brcathing and restlessness. In such cases no remedy yet discovered will always effect a cure ; but if the patient is watched and this treatment used in time , there is no danger. I sent this treatment to a friend of mine in Wisconsin and he used it on himself and family and neighbors with such success that he requested me to send it to you for publication , as this horrible disease is pre vailing in parts of Missouri. PIIMITHEUIA WASH. Golden Seal , purvcrized , 1 Drachm. Borax " " , 1 Black Pepper , " 1 Alum " " , 1 Nitrate of Potash " 1 " Salt , " 2 Put all into a common sized teacup or ves sel which holds about four ounces , and pour half full of boiling water , stir well , and then fill full of good vinegar. Fit for use when it settles. Make a swab by getting a little stick about the size of a pipe stem , notch one end , and wrap a strip of cotton cloth around it , letting the cloth project about half an inch beyond the end of the stick so as not to jag the mouth and throat , and fasten with a thread. Swab the mouth and throat every half hour if the case is bad ; evcrv hour if not bad. When tho patient gets better , every two hours ; then when better every four hours ; and when still better , two or three times a day , till well ; which will be from two to seven days. Touch every af fected spot tho uvula , tonsils , and fauces , the whole of the back part of the mouth and top of the throat , and lot the patient swallow a little of the wash" each time you swab. Swabbing causes no pain though the patient sometimes vomits ; but swab well and a , feel ing of relief will follow every swabbing. Let every patient have a separate swab and wash , as the disease is undoubtedly infec tious. Keep the wash pure by pouring what you use each time in another vessel , and also wipe off any matter or slime that may be on the swab , every time you take it from the mouth. Hub the following liniment on tho throat outside once every three or four hours and keep a fiannel cloth around the neck till well : Spirits of Turpentine , - - 1 Ounce. Sweet Oil ( or Linseed oil ) 1 Ounce. Aqua Ammonia ( mix ) - 1 Ounce. Shake before using each time. Keep the bowels regular with castor oil. Keep the patient in the house , but ventilated well. The diphtheria wash and liniment will be found sufficient for all cases if taken In time ; and should you mistake any other sore throat for diphtheria , you will effect a cure almost invariably , as 1 use this for all common sore throats. 1 have never lost a case , and many have told me that'no money would induce them in these diphtheria times to be without the wash and liniment , and when a soreness in the throat is felt , it is used and a cure always effected. Your friend , Dn. W. A. SCOTT , Palmyra , Warren Co. , Iowa. TOWN. 4 , RANGE 30. M. J. Pearson is living on his claim , and teaching school on the Willow. There were two entries made from lied Willow county at the great corn show at Chicago. Weather continues fine , snow gone , roads dry and solid , and many farmers plowing and everybody happy. Miss Nettie East has riiade final proof on her claim. We presume some old bach , will be pleased to cultivate her acquaintance now. M. F. Horrell has sunk a new well , pur chused a new wind-mill , has the tower paint ed , built a stable and shed , and settled down to business generally. A. Modie has completed a very comfortable and commodious stable , it being 14x28 feet in size and strongly built. It is a joy to our heart to see such substantial evidences of prosperity among us. Miss Ilettie Mooie , a graduate of Franklin Academy , is instructing the youth in school district No. 5S , in this town. We extend her a cordial welcome and trust that her stay among us may be both pleasant and profitable. It is passing strange what a few industrious old hens can do. Mrs. W. Coleman's have been trying to lay a barrel of eggs , and the only reason they did not succeed was the barrel was too large. However , Mrs. Cole- man took CO dozen to town on Tuesday , tor which she realized the sum of $15.87. That is equal to three loads of corn of 23 bushels each at 23 cents per bushel. Miss G. A. Colemnn who is "holding down" As line Ji quarter as can be found , On Sabbath morning asked , What is it doth hinder making pa a visit ? She howed it down like any sinner , And made the trip in time for dinner. Her lace was beaming bright with smiles. Though she had walked o'or seren miles [ through the snow.

The arrapnlc story of the origin , rise , and growth , and the decline and fall , of this fa mous military and religious order has hardly its parallel in all history. Of modern histor ians , the author of this sketch , James Antho ny Froudo is , probably better than any other , qualified to tell It in a manner worthy of tho theme. This celebrated order was established In 1117 , for the purpose of keeping open , for pil grims , the road between tho seaport of Aero and Jerusalem. It consisted originally of nino French knights of noble birth , who as sumed tho appejlation of "Tho Poor Brothers in Christ ; " they took upon themselves vows of poverty nnd of chastity , and of unqueS' tioningobedience to the Patriarch of Jorusti- loin aud to tho Knight whom they should choose as their Grand Master. The Order soon grew into tho most important one in Christendom , having immense possessions iu nearly every kingdom in Europe , even after their final expulsion from Palestine by the Saracens in 1280. The story of tho Jealousy which sprungup against the Order among tho European sovereigns tho Pope included is told , in sufficient detail. Perhaps the most in teresting chapters are those which tell of the arrest and trial of the French Templars ia 1307 ; their condemnation , and tho burning at the stake in 1314. of Jacques de Morlay , their last Grand Master. The historical sketch above referred to has recently been published in a series of articles in The Library Magazine , and is now issued in a very neat cloth-bound volume at tho price of 2. > cents , both that and The Library Maga zine being published by Jokn B. Aldcn of New York which accounts for the low price : issued by any other house the cobt would probably be $1.00 or more , FARM LOANS.- Cash Down. No Delay.
