As has been given out a formal or
ganication of an Odd Fellow' lodge
was perfected In St. Helens last Sat
urday night. The omoers of the grand
lodge were present and conducted the
ceremony In a rery impressive man
ner, In the evening the ateamer
Cricket brought a party of forty-two
of the fraternity down from Portland
to take part in this proceeding, which
arrived at 9 o'clock. Immediately alter
their arrival businesa oommenoed at
the newly furnished Odd Fellows' hall,
and a lodge of twenty-four oharter
member was Instituted. After the
organization waa completed the newly
made member and the visitors repaired
to the Oriental hotel, where an excel
lent supper had been prepared for the
occasion, and partook of the' good
thing of the land. The visitor rep
resented nearly every lodge in Port
land and a number of them made very
enoouraging speeches during the even
ing. All aeemed well pleaaed with the
future outlook for St Helen lodge
No. 117, and at 2 1 80 o'clook in the
morning took their departure for home,
carrying with them the thanks of the
St. Helens members for their atten
dance and aasistano in planting such
a noble Institution In our midst TJie
new lodge haa a splendid ball, nicoly
fitted up, and the future for it look
extremely bright. The regular meet
ing night is on Saturday of each week.
The little ateamer Cricket, owned by
Chief of Police Spencer of Portland,
brought a jolly orowd of exoursionists
down from thatcity last Sunday, where
they enjoyed themselves during the
day in a way moat befitting. They
spent most of the day at the grove
near "Nigger" creek, and about 4 o'clock
in the evening they came in to the
ball ground, where they established a
temporary oroquet and baseball gound.
Two nine were chosen with an equal
number of ladies, and "play ball" waa
called by the umpire, while a number
of othera engaged in croquet In the
ball game nine inning were played,
and the score was 22 to 20 very good
for the ladies, as some of them seemed
to have played the game before. At
7 : 30 the crowd boarded the ateamer
and were off for Portland. Among
the orowd was a sister and nephew of
Mrs. C. L. Colburn of this plaoo.
The following clipping from the Mc
Minnville Begiater ia self explanatory:
"We have been looking for the man
who could surpaaa Bill Nye in exag
geration. Here it is : 'A farmer in
Marion county says be baa a anake

found that eaoh contained an open

Mr. Bolt Havird, of Enterprise, Co
lumbia oounty, has been in the oity
tbi week for the purpose of investigat
ing a olaim against the estate of bis
stepfather, Mr. C. Stehman, deceased
It appears that when Havird was quite
young, some thirty odd years ago, his
father died and Stehman married the
widow. It alao appears that Steh
man borrowed the money from tbe
Havird estate, and there ia nothing to
show that he returned it Now, that
Stehman ia dead and has no further
use for tbe money, Havird intend to
tee if it oannot be made a claim againat
his estate, presumably with a view to
protecting it against other claims. Sa

Brigadier-General H. B. Compson,
of the Oregon National Guard, was in
St. Helens yesterday, and in company
with Mr. A. H. Blaketloy .visited Camp
Gibbon, a mile out of town, on a trip
of inspection. The general ha visited
and inspected every company in the
state, and say that in most case tbey
are in very good condition, yet some
are badly in need of clothing, appar
atus, etc The object of hia visit to
Camp Gibbon wo to select a suitable
plaoe for the encampment next year,
at which time the entire militia force
of the state will go into camp together.
The Bear Chase.
A report reached town Tueaday
evening that there were two large
brown bear in a canyon juat back of
town about a mile. Immediately a
posse of "tbe braves were organized,
consisting of etc. seventeen, all to
gether armed with guna, clubs.knives
(to soalp with), and at once atarted in
purauit of the large game, accompan
ied by (omething leaa than a dozen of
St Helen' large oanine population.
whioh were never known to shirk their
duty while on the trail (to the station).
At Houlton a guide waa aeoured and
the would-be oaptort proceeded
to the spot where tbe beasts
had laat been seen. . No sooner
had that place been reached than tbe
dogs took the scent and were off in a
jiffy down tbe gulch, through the
tbick brush, over logs, cloaely followed
by Kendall and other of the bravest.
From the noise made by the dogs and
amid the shouts made by the men to
eaoh other of "All is well," the chaae
was fairly on. After some time a wild
cat waa sighted on the higher ground
by one who did not venture into the
jungle, but fearing it might attraot the
attention of tbe dog be did not shoot
A little later another of the conseva-
tive onet discovered a bear about mid
way of a tall fir, and the pursuers were
at onoe summoned to the spot of obser
vation, where "Make ready, take aim,
and firel" waa In order. The echo of
the shot had not died out before some
one rushed headlong dowa the em'
bankment to the foot of the tree to
take tbe scalp and dreas the wounds,
but beheld tbe bear did not drop. The
gunner being satisfied that be bored
the bear through to daylight concluded
that he had made a mistake; but juat
at tbia point another saw (?) a bear
jump out of a tree (in fact bears were
jumping in all directions) closely fol
lowed by a aeoond one, and made across
toward Germany Hill oemetery, and
the doga again gave chase. Tbey did
not go far,however,unlil darkneas came
on, and they returned to the hunters
for fear of getting lost out in that
thickly inhabited country of bears,
cougars, wildcats, and aection men
After a little rest and speculation as
to who was the biggest sucker, the
crowd returned borne having had some
of the most violent exercise tbey had
enjoyed for some time, and to geteven
on the "bear" they made "beer" suffer
on their return to town.
While at Big Island, Va., laat April,
I waa taken with a very sovere attack
of diarrhoea. I never bad it worse in
my life. I tried aeveral old-time remi-
dies, auch aa blackberry wine, pare-
gorio and laudanum without getting
any relief. My attention waa then
called to Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhosa Remedy by Mr. B. C
Tinsley, who had been handling it
there, and in l9s than five minutes
after taking a small dose I was entirely
relieved. O. G. Bubfobd, Harris
