A curious freak of nature, in the shape
of a lamb with six legs is at the Colum
bia brewery. The animal is well formed
in every respect, and appears perfectly
healthy. From the right shoulder two
additional legs are growing, which reach
nearly to the ground. Mr. Buchler pur
chased it from a man out at Bake Oven.

ity from visitors. -

but not enough to make any good show
ing. Some of the fishermen say the
river must rise before a run will come,
while others give aa the reason that the
water is too clear and that plenty of fish
are in the river. .
Work on the cut at the high bridge is
going rapidly forward and in all proba
bility the grading will be finished next
month. The expense will be very great,
but there is no question but what the
outlay is a wise one. The bridge might
some day be the scene of terrible acci
dent and would now have to be rebuilt
or strengthened. When the new grade
is completed it will require but little fix
ing and last as long as the mountain.

and Pythias" was held in tbe lodge
room. Mr. Kasrnus has done good work
in training the members of the caste,
and they are making his efforts easy by
showing a great amount of interest.
The play is a hard one to learn, and the
memorizing of lines and getting familiar
with the situations requires much labor
on the part of the performers.
Everding & Farrell received about two
tons of fish yesterday. One ton came

The Diamond Mills, are taking their
annual vacation, and will remain cfoeed
for a month or six weeks. The machin
ery is to have a thorough overhauling
and repairing. The mill has been in
cessantly busy all season, and the year
has been a prosperous one. There is
now on hand a large amount of wheat,
which will be held till operations have
been renewed. This institution has
been the means of attracting much
wheat to The Dalles, and consequently
increasing our trade with the country.
A good deal of feeling was expressed
Sunday at the action of a couple of men
from the country. The horse they were
driving bad been horribly treated ; bis
shoulder was all cut and bloody, as if
some sort of swelling had been slashed
out with a knife. The animal was
drenched in perspiration and had been
driven hard. Sheriff Driver was notified
and has tbe matter in charge. . The men
will probably hear more of the matter
and have their attention called to the
fact of a law being upon our statute
books which punishes cruelty to animals.
A summary court martial was held
last night before Lt.-Col. J. M. Patter
son, .bight members of Co. G were
brought before tbe court and had their
cases attended to. ' This court martial
is for slight offenses committed against

Robbery at Ben Wilson's Saloon.
Early this morning some thieves broke
into Ben Wilson's saloon andjprocedeed
to get what they could conveniently get.
This, however, proved not to be much.
All the money but a little silver bad

safe and the robbers only got $1.50 in
money for tbeir trouble. They also se

PRODUCTIVE DRY HOLLOW.
Ride Through the Orchards Close to
The Dallas A Growing; Industry.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Emil Schanno
kindlv invited tbe editor to take a ride
to the orchards in Dry Hollow. Mr.
Schanno, as a member of the State Hor
ticultural Commission, is thoroughly
conversant with the fruit growing of
this section, and it la a pleasure to have
him explain the different varieties of
fruit and the progress and needs of fruit
culture in Wasco county. Driving op
tbe road past the fair grounds, and over
the hill into a little valley, the orchards
of Dry Hollow are in view.
But a few years ago, where now the
green trees make the whole country a
beautiful picture, was a soil supposedly
barren. People who prided themselves
in being well informed, said that noth
ing could ever be raised on such land,
and booted at the idea of a person
spending time and money in planting
trees.' Were they to take a ride similar
to that of yesterday, these same pessi
mists would receive some knowledge
that would be a sure blow to a belief in
the infallibility of tbeir . judgment.
Such a sight as the ' rees. laden with
fruit of all description, gives sure. evi
dence of this county's future. . .
The first, place that was passed be
longed to the family of tbe late Rev. E.
P. Roberts, and the large orchard, cov
ering the hillside, is well kept and shows
every evidence of prosperity. Mr. W.
H. Taylor, whose place is the next one
up the road, was not at home; but a
drive through his orchard was a revela
tion to the writer. Its size cannot be
told from the road, and tbe long avenues
of 'closely planted trees, all showing a
healthy growth, reminded one of the
pictures of thsjCalifomia orange groves.
The ground between the trees has been
carefully ploughed and . rolled, and
might be said to be as clean as a parlor
carpet. Most of Mr. Taylor's trees are
about six years old, but some of them
were planted four years ago. The limbs
are so heavily laden with fruit that they
will have to be stripped, in great part,
to save them from breaking. Mr. Tay
lor is just building a large Chrisman
dryer, which is nearly completed. V
The next place visited was that of Mr.
Robt. Cooper. Mr. Cooper moved to
this country in the latter part of the
sixties, and selected for his home the
place which he has made into a mag
nificent fruit farm. His land lies on
both sides of the road, and the best trees
grow on the hilly part. The cherries
are just beginning to ripen, and tbe
trees are loaded. Three men were in
the orchard stripping the trees of tbe
overplus of fruit. Mr. Cooper, in plant
ing bis trees, placed them twelve and a
half feet apart, bnt has thinned them
out till there is now a space of twenty
five feet between most of the trees. '
These farms, which for Irck of time
were the only ones viewed, are well
worth a visit, and the gentlemanly own
ers are very kind to show a stranger many
things of interest. Tbe orchards repre
sent a great outlay of labor and ex
pense, but no one who looks upon the
long lines of trees, with tbeir luscious
burden, can think it a poor investment.

Mrs. Wagner has returned to her
home in Indiana. She waa well pleased
with this country, and says she expects

she has come back to their place. Mr.
Hill Hunter, who was thought to be
improving, is worse again.
Last year tbe people of Mosier came
together on the 30th of May and ob
served Memorial Day. They had a good
time, and everybody seemed to be well
pleased. But this year there was not a
word said about it. Even the schools
went on, and no one with an observant
eye could tell that it was the day in
which to honor the heroes that fought
for the right.
Mr. Waters, the section house keeper,
is going to leave us, so I understand.

TWO GOOD SERMONS.
Seattle Ministers Occupied
Methodist Pulpit Yesterday.'
The large audiences' that filled tbe
Methodist church yesterday morning
and evening listened to able sermons by
Dr. Ford and Dr. Davis, both of Seattle.
The warm weather detracted in no wise
from the size of the audience. The
choir, composed of Mrs. Condon, Mrs.
White, Miss Myrtle Michell, Mr. G. D.
Snowden and Mr. John Parrot, sang a
very pleasing anthem, a portion of which
was ' a solo by Mrs, White. ,
The, text taken by Dr. Ford was from
Habakkuk iil :4, "And There Was a
Hiding of His Power." The reverend

Passing into the realm of nature, be told
of the acorn, and how it contained the
germ o! a mighty oak. Ten thousand
acorns were upon tbe tree, and yet they
all sprang from a single one. In speak
ing of the intellectual life he used for il
lustration the capitol at Washington,
with its magnificent proportions and
complicated architecture, and said the
whole creation was contained in the
mind of man, who planned the work.
The germ and hidden power of the spir
itual life were in Christ, and from hira
has sprung the system of a Christianity.
In tbe evening, Dr. Davis, pastor of
one of Seattle's large churches, filled the
pulpit. His text was from I John i :7,
And the Blood of Jesus Christ, His
Son, Cleanseth Ub From All Sin." The
topic turned upon the personal respon
sibility of the individual. The musical
features were a solo by Mi9s Myrtle Mi
chell and an anthem by tbe choir, in
cluding a solo by Mrs. Condon.
VERDICT FOR THE PLAINTIFF.
Important Case Decided in the Circuit
Court Cochrane ti. TunnySheep
, men Will Be Interested.
' The case of Peter M. Cochrane vs. J.
D. Tunny, in which sixteen witnesses
were brought from Antelope, was on
trial Saturday and went to the jury that
evening at 10:45. A great deal of inter
est was manifested among sheepmen and
every point stubbornly contested by tbe
attorneys. About a year ago Geo. Coch
rane bought a band of sheep in his
father's name, the latter furnishing tbe
money. Last November tbe sheep were
sold under an execution issued by the
Antelope justice in favor of J. D. Tunny
against Geo. Cochrane, Mr. Tanny was
the purchaser. Tbe present action was
one of replevin brought by Peter Coch
ran'e to recover the sheep. One of the
points developed in the case was that
date of tbe sale was Sunday, November
11th, which caused it to be void. The
jury was out all of Saturday night and
agreed upon a verdict some time Sunday.
At 9 o'clock this morning they brought
in a verdict for the plaintiff. Hunting
ton & Wilson, W. H. Wilson and J. L.
Story were the attorneys in the case.
The sheepmen of Antelope were very
much interested in the case and the re
sult will be eagerly awaited. No civil
action in Antelope has . attracted quite
so much attention. . '
SHOOTING AT MOSIER.
A. Power Has Trouble with O. !
Fields Shooting; is the Outcome.
A little after noon Friday R. A. Power,
the storekeeper at Mosier, shot O. L.
Field through the right leg and himself
reoeived severe injuries in the face.
Tbe trouble arose over some wood, which
tbe Fields were 'piling iu the Mosier
yard, and about which Power and Fields
had had dealings. The reports differ as
to just exactly what occurred ; but dur
ing the scuffle that ensued Power' re
ceived a bad wound in tbe face from a.
rock and O. L. Fields was seriously
wounded in tbe leg. -
The Chboniclb is not in a position to
judge of the merits of the quarrel, which
will have to be determined by the pre
liminary examination. Power came to
town yesterday to have his wound
dressed. ' How badly Fields is injured is
not known, but it ia not believed he is
dangerously hurt. A warrant has been
issued for Power's arrest, and tbe exam
ination will be held at once.
There has been a good deal of trouble
in Mosier for some time, and there
seems to be an undue amount of dissen
sion in the neighborhood. We are Borry
to see things take the turn they have,
and hope that this unfortunate affair
may be an end to the strife.
Mr. James H. Frazier showed us some
pictures of his Sherman county ranch,
taken in sheep shearing time. In one
corral are tbe ibeep from which tbe
wool has been cut and iu another one
are the animals who are yet to go
through the process. Large wagon loads
with sacks of wool are just ready to start
for the market, while standing by tbe
sheds is a group of herders and shearers.
Altogether the scene is a typical one and
shows a sample of this great wool pro
ducing country. The pictures would be
a revelation to any one not acquainted
with tbe large scale on which, farming
and wool growing are done in Eastern
Oregon.. ? ' - - .
