have another enormou crop next year.
All farmer of authority ooite in the
declaration that the weather of the lt
few week ha been exactly like the
weather of a year ago, when nature
laid the foundation for the great crop
or 1BU7. II tint prove true and another
niammeth yield be obtained there will
be no limit t' the tide of prosperity
that will wtnp over that locality. The
production thia year, including the
proceed from the ale of ttock and
other product of the farm, amounted
to a per capita wealth f 300,or about
41S0O to every fnan in the county.
Doubt tli it amount, and next year
' there would not be a tingle mortgage
on Umatilla real eiUto, and evvry
resident would be free from all future
financial trouble. Everything it fair
ly on the road to the realisation of
tht hope. ..:

Martin Iluvidon, of Vernonia, Wat in
town Monday aud Tuesday of this
Week looking after interests which ho
ouiini.It.-ia vitiU.'in reaurd to city aov-
rnmonttii piijirs of Vernonia, Mr.
Davison, it will bo remembered, was a
Candidate for the l(iulattir on the
populist ticket in 181)1, but for wn
of vote did not reuch the goal, lie
lint been contidDred at all timet by the
people 01 uoiumbia county at a popu
list, but in conversation with a Mist
reporter during his vit here, remarked
that if "the gang" (something we know
nothing about) tinted tha ticket In the
next popnliat convention he would tee
to It that the ticket did not receive tha
individual support of the party. Mr.
Davison's remark brought to our
comprehension new departures in pop
ulist politics. We were always of the
ooinion tliat populist were ruled by
the wish of the majority, but it teems
that slates are slated and tickets tick
eted with them n i said to be the cane
with other political parties. Mr. Dav
ison declare he will wage "war to the
teeth" in the populist camp if "the
gang" railroad the ticket thi year,
anil from ms conversation would im
gioe he lint quite a following. At all
eventt the action at the next populist
convention will be looked upon with
some degree or interest by populists.
The semi annual Installation of of
ficer! of Avon lodge. Knights of Pyth
ias of thin city, wa held Tuesday
evening. The ceremoniee were public
so far as members' families were -con
cerned, and a large crowd wat present.
After these ceremonies of tha Knightt
were concluded the lodge was declared
at eaBe, and member of Ava Temple
Katnoone outer took" poslettion and
held their semi-annual installation.
During this interim of perhaps an
hour, three or four enthusiastic
Knights busied tbemtelvee preparing
a lunch, which they, unbeknown to
tha sisters, qnietly carried to the ante
room, and, when tbe proper time came,
proceeded to serve sandwiches and
coffee. This interesting feature of tbe
eveoing'saotertainmout required about
an uourf time, after which, speeches
were mads by retinae and incoming
officers of the two orders, and many
good things wore said. It was, indeed.
after 12 o'clock when the ceremonies
were brought to a close, and even then
ail were loth to quit the lodge-room,
and a they did so all expressed great
satisfaction and declared the eveuing
pleasantly and profitably spent.
LastTnursdsy the men employed
in constructing the new wood flume
were obliged to blow off a point of rock
in order to level the flume, which was
just in tba roar of the residence of J.
II. Decker, in the west part of town.
and it was only through the greatest
fortune that serious damage wat not
don when the blast wat discharged.
i.very precaution was taken by the
workmen to prevent the chattered
fragments from escsping snd flyiog,
but una pieoe of rock found its way
through the heap of. logs and brush
and flew straight for the window of tba
kiicben of Mr. Decker's house, in
which were members of tbe family
preparing the noon meal. The window
was wrecked, glass flying in every
direction in the house, filling the un
covered kettles on the stove with fine
glass. No blame ia attached to the
workmen, and all agree that fortune
favored them insofar as no serious
damage was done.

taken in to purchase the book, and
