Mr. AllBhonse was hauling wood for
Mr. F, P. Hale, and while unloading,
having thrown off the back tier of wood
and part of the middle- one, he found
it necessary to have his team move up
a little. Stepping up on top of the
front tier of wood, he picked up the
lines and started the team, when the
wagon struck a slick of wood, which
he had previously planed there to rest

steep, with such a force a to to throw
Mr. Allsbouse on to one of the horses,
when he dropped down on the double
trees, and the horses being frightened
by such an usual occurrence, com
menced to run, kicking him as they
went. After running a short distance
they upset the wugon.when the bruised
and unconscious form of the unfor
tunate mail fell to the ground aud was
dragged into the bay, where nothing
but his head and face remained out of
the water. Had the accident not hap
pened while other wood hauler were
there he would have been in great
danger of drowning as the tide was
coming in. The team, after upsetting
the wagon, ran into deep water aud
stopped where it looked as if one of
the horses would strangle, but they
finally came out and were caught by
some men near at hand.
Mr. Allsbouse was taken by kind
hands to the nearest residence where
Dr. Cliff was summoned who made an
examination, and finding no bones
broken gave him medicine to produce
sleep. As he had no family here it
was thought best to take him to the
hospital at Portland, which was done
in the evening when the 6 o'clock
train went up. Mr. James Bacon and
Mr. Scott Nunn went with him, re
maining until death came to his relief
at half past nine Saturday morning,
when they hud the body prepared for
burial, placed in a beautiful coflin,atid
brought back to this place on the even

turned out en masse to pay a lust tri
bute of respect, to their unfortunate
frieud and brother.

day at Bay View scboolhonse, was

teachers' institute was reinforced by
the arrival of Prof. Borst, principal of
the schools in Centralis, Wash., whose
record of thirty-three years it) teach
ing has given him an experience
which he can relato in such a manner
as to be very helpful. He is also gifted
in power to convey histhoughts,which
find ready utterance in well chosen
forms of expression. He was frequent

it is to be understood there was music
each evening both vocal and instru
mental, and this music made up a
prominent part in each evening's ex
ercise. W. M. Perry gave the principal talk
on Saturday evening on "Patriotism
in our schools."
On Monday evening of this week,
after recitations by Misses Harmer and
Henderson, Professor Cleeton and

The exercises on Tuesday evening
were not kept up as lung as usual aud
the teachers had an opportunity to
boat ride or enjoy themselves in other
ways. A number took a little time
to visit the new scboolbuilding and
spoke admirably of it. In the even
ing recitations were given by Misses
McQuire and Boyle, and an hour was
spent by the superintendent in an ad
dress on "The true aim of education."
A f'uv closing words followed and the
exercises were closed.

ijndirtg Tuesday, August 9:
Weather Th temperature during
tlie past week has been about normal,
the extremes ranging between 45 and
!)5 degrees. Generally speaking the
weather conditions have been favor
able. There lias beeii almost an en
tire absence of ruin.
Crops Fall wheat threshing con
tinues unabated. The berry is of fair
quality iu most sections. Oat are do
ing tolerably well, though needing a
little ruin in some places, Spring
wheal continues to improve. Reports
from Marion county indicate a yield
of from 18 to 20 bushels per acre. Hops
are blossoming and but little damage
from lice is reported so tar. Hay
making is progressing nicely, The
timothy and clover vuriiies are yield
ing nicely, and stock is iu excellent
condition. Com and melons ur3 rip
ening fast and being shipped to the
markets in good quantities. The onion
crop in Washington county will fall
short of the average. Ia Douglas
county blackberries are so plentiful
that large quantities are drying upon
the vine for want of pickers. Gardens
in general are a bit late, though in
some localities pears are almost ripe.
Weather There has been no rain
during the week except a few local
showers in portions of Baker and Un
ion counties. The temperature has
been about normal ; the extremes rang
from 36 to 105 degrees. Hot winds
are reported from stations iu tlie north
Crops Wheat is being harvested
steadily, aiid will be a fairly good crop
except in some portions of the north
eastern counties. Spring wheat has
not improved any since last reports,
but continues to suffer from drought
to some extent. The fruit crop will
be light in most-sections owing to ear
ly frosts. Crops in Gilliam county
have almost perished from the effects
of the hot winds, and the potato crop
is said to be a total failure.
The weather conditions that have
obtained during tlie past seven day
have been, as a rule, favorable to veg
etation in nearly ull sections of the
state and were ull that could be de
sired for harvesting purposes.
