A Pardon Criminal
He Drove Into a Trestle.
Last night John McQee, one of
Polk county's old farmers, a littlo
the worse for tangle-foot, started to
drive homo with his team. The
big bridge was hlsobjectlvepointjbut
lucklessly he lost his bearings and
instead of following the road, drove
his team upon the railroad track.
He followed along the high grade
until his progress was impeded by
the animals stepping into a trestle.
He left them there and came Upon
the street, when he was taken ih
tow by an officer, while a body of
men went to the relief of the horses,
which, after some time were ex
tricated from their unhappy fasten
Almost a Conflagration.

placed a quantity of cloth goods in
the gallery near the stove pipe in
the Armory building, and this
morning when a firo was started in
the stove the heat was sufticient to

perhaps a long time, and about ten
o'clock burst forth in a great flame,
which leaped to the celling anxious
to lick the tinder. A few buckets
of water promptly applied averted
great damage. There was no loss,
save a small hole burned through

sweet as any berries we have ever
tasted. Just think of it to have
raspberries on the last day of Octo
ber. This is not all, Mr. Savage
still has green beans and peas in Ills
garden, besides many other summer
vegetables. Truly Oregon is a great
Senator llolph To-night.

It Will Stir Them Up.
Our Salem exchanges are full of

the splendid start it has secured is
not going to be slow in increasing
its advantages. Albany Democrat.
