Jeweler Finds Diamond Through Unique Plan

Drives Home in New Automobile and Satchel Containing Gems Drops Out—Issues Handbills.

REDDING, June 24.—Adolph Dobrowsky, a Redding jeweler, lost a $1700 diamond from the seat of his automobile over a week ago somewhere between this city and Vallejo.  He had given up the brilliant as lost, but Saturday he received a telegram from a jeweler in Willows telling him that he could have the gem by coming after it.  Mr. Dobrowsky arrived in Redding Saturday, a week ago, from Vallejo in a new automobile that he had just purchased in the city.  He never missed the hand satchel containing the diamond ring and a few other articles of nominal value until he arrived at the door of his home.  He sent his chauffeur back over the road to look for the satchel and scatter handbills advertising the loss of a “$40 diamond ring of great value as a family keepsake, for which full value will be paid as a reward for its return.”

The chauffeur made a trip to Vallejo and back, but accomplished nothing, arriving in Redding yesterday morning.  At noon came the word from Willows that the satchel and all its contents had been found intact and awaited Dobrowsky’s arrival.  No other particulars were given.

Albert Walling, Printer, Business News

McCORMICK’S DIRECTORY: By the disastrous fire yesterday the material for the making up of this directory for 1872, was burned at the establishment of A.G. Walling. This will prove a serious loss to Mr. McCormick and Mr. Walling. The publication of this work will necessarily be delayed. (Portland Oregonian, December 23, 1872)

Walling has purchased W.H. Coburn’s entire printing office, and will be ready to resume operations in a few days. (Portland Oregonian, December 28, 1872)

Bully for Waite and Walling

A vacancy occurring in the Committee on Works of Art, in which class all the printing was entered, we are informed that Mr. Waite, Corresponding Secretary of the Fair, had his employer, Mr. Walling, of the Farmer office, appointed to the vacancy.  The point of this strategy is observable when the reader is informed that Walling was the principal contributor of job printing for the premiums, and his partner, Pittock, was a contributor of newspaper printing for premiums.  Walling coolly voted himself first premium on job printing, and his partner, Mr. Pittock, a first premium for newspaper work; admitting that Mr. Stinson’s printing on the Agriculturist was really the best, but that Pittock ought to have it, as he showed a whole year of the Oregonian, and Stinson showed but one number of the Agriculturist.  “Blessed is he that judgeth his own case, for then it shall be decided in his favor.”

It Won’t Pay

We observe by the copperhead papers, that our “mutual friend,” E.M. Waite, Corresponding Secretary of the Oregon State Agricultural Society, has been making considerable capital among the “Southern Brethren,” by sending complimentary tickets to the State Fair along with is prospectus for the Plowman, while he at the same time, strangely enough, forgets to send complimentaries to the Union papers of the State. (We speak for the Statesman.) A membership ticket is worth just two dollars and a half in gold coin, and when presented with the compliments of the Corresponding Secretary, is a “big thing” in the way of honorable distinction from the “common herd,” who have to pay cash before they go in. The price of Mr. Waite’s (that is to say Walling’s) Farmer, redivious Plowman, is only three dollars per year, and almost anybody would take the Plowman at that price, if the polite Secretary would throw in a “complimentary ticket” at $2.50. Cheap enough, to be sure, but will it pay the Society to disperse its favors in that way? The Statesman don’t want a complimentary — it can afford to pay for the privilege of reporting our State Fair, and is more than willing to do so. The copperhead papers have given the Plowman immense puffs, and it looks as if Mr. Waite’s paper was to be run for the benefit of the democracy. The Agriculturist has received no such one-sided attentions, from either party, and it will not receive them. It will have no communication with the “filthy pool of yolitics [sic]” and this the people may rely on. It is for every farmer’s house and family, and it will neither praise or denounce his politics or religion.
