FaiKi Fos, April i5. This spring U a
stunner to the oldest settlers ol the country,
and by the looks of the weather we will get
nothini; sown now before the first of May,
and t!i. i! is getting it in rather late, liut
one tine thing is, Oregon never has a failure
ail together, so we may hojie for something
yet it it is late in the season. Yesterday 1
think was the worst day of the season by
all odds for wind and rain.
Mrs. A. M. Barnes's house, of Frog Pond,
burned yesterday alwut 11 A. M. with all
its contents while they were away at one of
the neighbors. The tire is supposed to have
come from the chimney through some de
fect and by force of the hard wind blow ing
at the time. Preparations were made by
John Kruse and others today to have a new
house built in a short time for the widow.
The lumber will be ready to haul in a couple
of days. A subscription was started today
which in a short time had 7.o0. More will
be subsorihod tomorrow.
Mr. and Mrs. John Kruse start tomorrow
for Freeport to make a few days visit at

Tualatin secular union meets next Sun

I should think some of those old political
cranks would let upon the two " Billies" as
they are called. The people showed thein
they were not wanted at the convention of
they would have been chosen again. But
as it is I think they have had their turn and
ought to be satisfied without grumbling or
keeping a set of grumblers in their offices as
they are doing. They both are making
themselves ridiculous by countenancing
such proceedings in their offices. I think
it is high time the " Billies" are laid in the
shade and give a new set a show, and "get
there Eli'' by all means. 0. K.

A UTTKK WIOS CASTS.
Influences Men Need to Stimulate them to IJve
of Higher Moral Tone.
Caki s, April St. It la the business of a
news correspondent to collect ami report all
such facts and happenings as are likely to
prove of interest to the patrons of the paper
on which he is engaged. We consider that
he also has the right to criticise any action
or pnvovdings which atlW t the material or
moral interests ot the community. It was
with this understanding ol duty and privi
lege that Calla penned the liam In her last
munlcatlon, which had the fortune to (realty
ollend the parties to whom It tvfVrred, Calla
isn't afraid of any titan or a donen, and
when Mr. McOont and bis crew waited upon
her at her residence, last Tuesday evening,
and requested an explanation of the language
used In that item, It was frankly and cheer
fully given. The cause that led to the pen
ning of that Hem was the alleged perpetra
tion of one or two practical Jokea; the facts
having been given your scribe bv reliable
parties. It was Intended as a criticism and
reproof for whoever deserved it.
We cordially agree with Mr. McCord in
saying that his men con II no their " perform
ances," wise or otherwise, to their own
premises, and the persons and profiles of
our residents are not in any sensv molested.
He also claims that he has at present as
quiet and well ordered a crew aa Is common
among mill owners, and we willlnglv giu
him the benefit of the assertion. I'erliaps
it Is too much to expect that a company of
men without the restraiut of home, or the
presence of the gentler sex, should maintain
as high a standard of morals aa those sub
ject to such restraint. Granting the same to
be true, III assertion is equally so that the
presence in any community of any com
pany of men, log campers or sawm!!) men,
would be better appreciated if their morals
were ol a higher tone.
Tom Jones bas gone up to Castle Km k to
