There is a plan on foot to devide Cali
fornia and form a new state. The Pacii'u
coast politicians at Washington -ay that
a project will soon be agitated for divid
ing California and making a new State
Out of the southern portion, togetlu r
with the western part of the Territory of
Ariiona. The boundary line between
the old and the new State would run di
rectly eastward froui Poiut Conception,
and the capital of the latter would pro
bably be I.os Angeles. It is urged in
support of tins project tnat the interest
of Southern California are separate and
diverse from those which center at s.,u
Francisco and Sacramento, and that -
the southern section develop- i

The ftiouthern Oil Belt.—Operators are
now seeking*for the apparently lost oil
belt, traces of which are not at any great
distance from Elk City. Many of the
practical one's think it will be found to
run south of Clarion. Good reasons
exist why the belt runs in that direction
tne principal of which is that all other
directions have been tested, and only
dry holes met with. The southern direc- 1
tio:; remains yet to be tested. If successful,
this belt would open up a large extent ol
new territory, of which our town would '
be the centre. McLaughlin & Co., who 1
drilled the well recently finished near 1
town, are not satisfied, and if the land I
owners hereabouts will give them area- 1
souable show, they w ill have another

New York. Jannurv 20 —At a mcf 'ing
f the Methodist ministers to-dny. the
. question "Is there any can so to havt
. evangelists among us?" was diseuwod at
great length, manv powerful addresx s
,! being made. The room was crowded w ilh
. anxious listeners.
„ Pr. Kittell argued there was no nc
cessitv for either revivals cr evangelists,
, and that they <liil ni"r<' harm than good.
The idea of sudden santifuution he re
garded as absurd. I>r. bctnlder held
r similar views. I>r. Crooks thought
< evangelism hsd done mncli for Christi
anity, ami its principles are good.
Dr. Curry said evangelists and mission-
I aries are almost similar. The great
. work lias been done by them for the
. church, but a pastor should be an evnii
. gelist. Many evangelists do good
, abroad who could work no good at home
owing to their character. Weening, sing
, ing, aiid mesmeric evangelists he deplor
ed. They pass over districts like fire

said the old man, as he rubbed his

his eyes twinkled merrily as he spoke,
"they've written worse than that about

The supreme court ofthe United States
decided, Monday, in the case of some

CltO W DED TO DEATH.
[Virginia [No* J Enterprise]
lie eras a middle aged roan when in IKSI
he settled near where I'ortland, Or., now
it. He had tried citilixation am:
una weary with it. He had tulJ hit lilt)
property ir. the Katl, and with a feu
hone#, cows and dogs had threaded th
dangerous way from the Missouri Kivet
tn Oregon, and there, under the shadow c'l
the Cascades and beside the beautiful
Williametle, paused at la't and said In
himself: "1 shall have no more trouble ;
I can stay here with my dogs, my rifle
and my soul f*r company, and none will
molest me." For awhile ho was entire
ly happy, but at length one stranger aftei
another made hit appearance, and one
s morning the man who had journied to far
to be alone woke up to find that a town
was being laid out near his cabin. He
'j called his dogs, and remembering a beau*
I tlful spot that he passed over on hisjour
' ney West he retraced hit steps, threaded
' the mighty canyon of the Columbia, and
\ huilt another cabin where The Dallas now
• is. Here he tell secure. The disturbers
who broke up hi* home on the William*
, etlc had reached him from the sea. He
-.aid now to himself: "It will beyearsand
years before they find me here." For a
good many year# he enjoyed his dream
Game was plenty, the scenery glorious,
the soil was rich, and the man, now grow n
old, was happy. Hut on# morning as he
sal in his hut a strange found broke the
stillness, and going to the door, lot in the
greal river a steamboat was puffing against
the cut rent, and in a few day a another
town was in course of construction around
him. Again he moved, and this time did
not pause until ho reached the Umprjua
country. This was an utter wilderness,
and lie told his dogs that at last they were
jsafe. He huilt another cabin and settled
.down for life. For a year or two he was
undisturbed, but one day toinc strangi
men, with itrange instruments, crossed Ills
ground, stopping every few rods looking
through their instruments and taking
notes. It disturbed the old man a little,
but at last lie said they word hut Govern
ment surveyors— lie should see them no
more for years. Hut before many weeks
gang of workmen came right across his
favorite field ; they threw up an evenly
grided road, and within a fortnight a lo
comotive cnnia 'creaming by. Then tin
old man g .ve up His dogs, too, seemed
lo understand that there was no mote us<
trying. One after the other died ; the
game wa driven away, end one morning
. the cabin dor of the dd man was
nished open he was found dead, m.d on
the sii nky wall, written with charcoal,
MI- found this s.'iitn .o : "They < rowdi-,1
me t<> death." Tliirwwt i- full , f the e
men. They tried at iir-t the l.ciy compos ,
titions of business and failed, and then
turning to nature as their only friend, tried
to hide from mankind. Wo presume
that all new lunds are full of such histo
ries of gentle, kindly livo, which, weary
ing of and ck aflng at the attrition of civil
ised life, at last stole away, to live alone
for awhile and then go to sleep.

* This Sarsaparilla is a combination of
vegetable alteratives-Stillingia .Man
drake, Yellow Dock—with the lodides
! of Potassium and Iron, and is tho
most efficacious medicine vet known
for the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients arc so skilfully
combined that the full alterative
effect of each is assured, and while
it is so mild as to he harmless even
to children, it is still so^effectual as
to purge out from the system those
impurities and corruptions which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
i from its cures, and the confidence
' which prominent physicians all over
; the country repose iu it proven their
experience of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
stantly being received, and as many
of these cases are publicly known,
they furnish convincing evidence of
the superiority of this Sarsaparilla
over every other alterative medicine.
; So generally is its superiority to any
• other medicine known that we need
' do no more than to assure the public
j that the best qualities it has ever
I possessed are strictly maintained.
