that this was one of the manifestations
of their machinations against him.
When the police came to analyze the
matter, howevor, It was found that th
shot marks were made by a bullet of the

by himself, and an examination of the
weapon, which had been left at a Main

acres it has put these men at work
without any specified limit to their op.

disposed of. Most of the timber will be
cut into cord wood and sold in that form.
If it shall be determined that the whole
area owned by thia company shall be
improved, the force of workmen will be
increased and a season of lively work
will ensue. While the company dims
not claim to be anticipating the arrival

ander Holmes, who was committed to
the asylum from Portland last week in a
nearly dying condition, passed to the bo

the early history of Oregon. He settled
in Oregon City In 1860. lie was delegate

nominated Abraham Lincoln for Presi

Wild SntAWHKitHV Blossoms There
are not many countries in (lie forty
fourth parallel of latitude that can show
the mid-winter blossoms that western
Oregon exhibits this year. Koses and
chrysanthemums are in nearly overy
door-yard. Last Sunday, January 81,
a numbel of wild strawberry plants wore
found in bloom on tho hillside this side
of Citnenmh. The fresh young blossoms
wero smiling in lite warm sunHhine and
some of them had acquired as pretty
tints as any dainty April posy can show.
The flowers appeared to bo there for
business, too, and it will not he long till
delicate wild straw berries will be found
ripening in tho open air. Apples and
pears in a perfect state of preservation
can be pbkod from the trees In many
orchards in thia locality today. Truly,
western Oregon has a glorious climate.
