SILVER LAKE HORROR
FKIOKTFUL CHRISTMAS KVE HOI.
. OCAUHT IN AN OREGON TOWN.
An 0ertarned Limp Bet Fire to
Building, Burning; Men, Women
ud Children to Death.
A dispatch from Klamath Falls yester
day gives the following account of the
Silver Lake horror :
"A most horrible holocaust occurred
at Silver Lake, Or., Christmas eve.
Over 40 people cave up their lives. Six
teen were badly injured, five of whom
will probably die. While Santa Clans
was making merry, the little children
who had assembled in the hall above
Chrismau Brothers' store, with their
parents, brothers and sisters, little
dreamed of the horrible fate they were
soon to meet. The Lakeview Examiner
"Some one attempted to get where he
could see and hear better by jumping up
on a bench in the middle of the hall. In
doing so, his head struck a lamp hanging
from the ceiling, causing' the oil to run
out, which immediately caught fire.
While trying to take the lamp down, it
was tipped so that tbe oil ran out on the
floor. From that time on the scene was
horrible to behold. Some said, 'Shut
the door and keep quiet, it can be put
out,' while others screamed and yelled,
The lamp was finally taken down, but it
fell to the floor. In the attempts of the
people to escape, it was kicked to the
door, where it lay motionless, as it could
not be touched on account of the intense
heat. People were compelled to go
through the flames, in order to reach
the door, and frantically rushed to their
doom. The killed are :
Mrs. John Buick, Freddie and the
baby ; Mrs. Owsley, Lillie and Bruce ;
J J Buick and his daughter, Mrs. Snell-
ing, Mrs Howard and two children;
Ed Bowen, Miss McCauley, Wood
Hearst and wife, Mrs Coshow, Frank
West and wife and two children; T J
Lambries and child, Mrs Ward, sr.
Mrs U F Absbier, Frankie Horning,
Mrs Payne, Mrs Nettie Williams and
child, W Clay Martin and wife, Robert
Small, Mrs Ella Ward and child, Frank
Boss, his mother and sister, Boy Ward's
child, Ira Hamilton and Mrs Gus
Schroeder and child. ' .
"The five injured, who are likely to
die, are : Mrs J T Labrie, Bob Snelling
and sister, and Ed Payne and son.
"The postoffice and the entire stock
of goods of Chrisman Brothers, which
were in the building, a two-story struc
ture, were consumed with it."
Examples of Com man ism In
Professor Stewart, in a lecture before
the London institution, gives some In
stances of the curious partnerships
which are sometimes formed in tbe ani
mal world, the principal of which has
been differentiated by naturalists under
the term commensalism. The organism
of the lower animals are inter-depend
ant, and, like human beings few of them
are able to live only for and by them
There is a hermft crab, who carries
about him attached to his shell, or even
to his claw, a sea anemone. When the
crab feeds his partner shares the feast,
and morover enjoys the benefits of free
locomotion, though little able to move
itself. The parasite fully repays this
service by hiding the crab when he is in
danger, aiding him to nrnmb or kill his
prey, and, when the time comes for the
crab to change his shell, assisting him
to his new home.
Another example of this spirit of
communism is found in the protection
j-fforded the acacia tree of tropical
America by a colony of ant warriors.
Tbe acacia tree, finding itEelf in danger
of destruction by leaf-cutting and other
ants and other insects, enlists in its
service a tribe of ants, which are not
only innocuous, but ready to fight for the
plant and keep off its enemies.
But the ants are true mercenaries and
will not serve without pay, and for
them the tree affords food and a shelter
hollow appendages (stipules) to live in
and nutrient fluids on which they feed.
As soon as tbe foe sets foot on the leaf
stock he is assailed by the guardian ants
and either killed or compelled to beat a
hasty retreat. Pittsburg Dispatch. .
- Christmas Tree on Mill Creek.
Upper Mill Creek, Dec. 28, '94.
Dear Sib : I have come to life agein
and will say news is scarce, still we had
the finest Christmas tree in the far west.
The tree was loaded with good presents
for both ' old and young. Lots of the
young people from Three Mile and Dutch
Flat were present and laughed till their
sides ached at a piece acted by J. W.
Fausher, entitled "Jo Abb the Green
horn." Well Mr. Editor I will come as soon as
I can again. Yours as ever,- -

Tomorrow being New Year's day, the
usual amount of good resolutions will be
made in the : morning, many of which
will be broken before nfght, and all of
them before a month. - When you see
Jones going around looking .like his
mother-in-law was coming to visit him,
you may know that. he has discarded
his pipe. By noticing his face each
morning you can tell when the unequal
struggle is lose. Jones can quit any
time, and as soon as he satisfies himself
on this point by abstaining for from 24
to 48 hours, he knows that no habit can
ever get the best of him, and so, feeling
perfectly safe, he finds his pipe again.
Smith has the same plan for rum. Bob
inson is equally successful in quitting
pool and staying out late, and so in turn

pursue the even tenor of our sinful ways,

Florida Will Lose Millions ef Dollars by
the Cold Weather.
Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 31. Three
million dollars will hardly coyer the loss
in Florida from the cold of the past 72
hours. The mercury dropped to 22 deg.
above zero last night, and the cold com
pleted its work of destruction. The
apple plantations are ruined, as well as
the oranges and the winter vegatable
crops. Next year's orange crop will be
shortened by 1,000,000 boxes, which
means an additional loss of $1,500,000
to the growers and the transportation
companies. The direct and incidental
losses by this spell .will aggregate $5,-
000,000 in the next two years. - Last
night at 8 o'clock tbe mercury was 41 deg.
The mercury went down to 14 deg.
above zero at the signal station in this
city just before sunrise this morning,
this record being 1 deg. colder than the
temperature during the great freeze of
1886, and the lowest since 1835. Ihe
thermometer at the station is 100 feet
above ground, and the surface readings
about town average from 10 to 3 deg.
lower. Reports from Titusville, Tampa,
Ocala, Gainesville, Palatka and Sanford
indicate the mercury dropped about 18
above zero in- these localities. The
orange and vegetable crops are practi
cally ruined, The best estimate places
the number of oranges on the trees at
fully 2,600,000 boxes, and officials of the
Florida Fruit Exchange, in this city,
think fully 2,000,000 boxes have been
frozen eitber wholly or in part. If this
estimate is correct, tbe remaining 600,-
000, boxes will bring fabulous prices.
These reports cannot be verified until
tonight or tomorrow, but the best in
formants in fruit matters say "The jig is
up with the oranges of -1894-95." Ice
formed on the streets of Jacktohville
this morning. ' ,
The snap is not without compensation,
however, as it has largely killed the scale,
one of the deadliest orange pests, and
exterminated another, the white fly,
which was becoming active in some
groves and threatened the state.
The Glorious Climate of Texas.
"Yes, sen," said Representative
Hutcheson, of Texas, to a Washington
Post reporter, in reply to the usual re
mark; "yes, seh, this certainly is a
charming day. But us folks from Texas
don't enthuse over it, because you know
seh, we have this kind o' weather right
along down in our state. Our skies rival
the blue of Italy's far-famed cerulean
vault, and from the birth of winter, seb,
till the beautiful month of May melts in
the lap of gorgeous perfumed June, the
fragrance of whose roses sweetens the
breath of our nostrils till winter, thoee
skies look down on the Lone Star state
and see just such weather as this."
"As good as tbe far-famed weather of
Florida, Mr. Hutcheson?"
'As good, seh ? Better, And what's
more, we are not eternally talking about
it, either. But then we don't live
through the summers on .fish 'and
through the winter on Yankees." '
At a special meeting of the school di
rectors last Monday Miss Lura Welch
and Miss Ella Cooper were 'employed as
additional teachers, and will begin work
January 21st. One of them will be
placed in the East Hill primary, after
which the third, fourth and fifth grades
will be taught there. This will fill every
room belonging to the district, and will
necessitate the moving of the kinder-.
garten school from the Union school
annex. The change also made neces
sary the purchase of 100 desks, which
are now being placed in the rooms.
After the additional teachers begin
their labors the average number of
pnpils for each teacher employed will
be 43, and the number of teachers 15.

under it. The drive-wheel was taken
from a small cart, and the treadles were
