Saimos, Julv a A goodly number of
people of tin's section went to Sandy to cele

among the numlr. A very pood time was
had, everything going otr smoothly. The
music was furnished by Cordray' orchestra
of Tort land and was excellent. A ball in
the hall at night finished the day's enter
tainments, Mr. McCoy, of roriland, passed here last
Tuesday going to the water ditch in Eastern
Oregon on which he has a contract. He
had about forty "lingo," or Italians, whom

H. 8. Campbell passed here on Tuesday

make repairs, as it was reported that the

cut around here the past week, and most of
it la of a first class quality. Although there
is quits a rush at present there is but very
little hiring of hands being done, most fann
ers having hands enough on their places to
carry them through.
Miss Minnie Moses, who has been spend
ing a few weeks with relations here, has re
turned to her home in Portland.
Newton Slyter bade farewell to these parts
on the morning of the fifth and departed
for the home ot his parents on Iairy creek
in Washington county, where he will spend
the remainder of the summer.
Conrad Weoltle, sen., and Win. ami Kred
Schali left for Sheridan on Saturday last to
look at a ranch recently purchased hj one
of their Dakota friends. Mr. Weoltle has
some thoughts of trading his present home
for a prairie farm.
Simeon V Neni has returned home from
Salem where be has been attending school
for the past year.
Caterpillars are becoming scarce. The
few that are left are rolling up snugly in
their cocoons. No great damage seems to
to have been done by them as they have
taken but few leaves otl from the fruit trees.
The wheat aphis is quite numerous, but
as yet not much damage to the grain has
become apparent. The aphis has also made
raids on some of the oat fields.
All the winter and some spring grain is
headed out, and it looks like harvest is close
at hand. I'ns.
Wiui k them Is doubtless a question h.
tween Pullman and his employes which
ought to have been adjusted for the bet
terment of the employes, It Is a grave
question whether it was of importance
enough to Justify discommoding almost the
entire American people for the sake of the
few dollars gain which would have accrued
to the laborers. Hut when there was added
to this inconvenience and loss destruction
of property, disobedience to laws and the
spilling of blood it is hard to II ml excuse or
palliation. The demand of the strikers in
many Instances is for the restoration of I
wages received in lS!";t. They seemingly
forgvl that others besides themselves have
sultered. Indeed, it would he hard to tlnd a
class or an individual who has not sultered
seriously. Itusinesa men consider them
selves fortunate if they are not losing
money, farmers are constrained to b satis
fied if their debts are not becoming greater,
laborers are In luck the country over if they
have work at considerable less wages than
was paid a year and a half ago. Why then
should all of these, and the thousands of
others in the various occupations through.
out the country, be inconvenienced and
made to sutler loss for the sake of the few
railroad workers and employes in Pullman's
shops? The rest of the country and people
have some rights which are entitled to respect.

The Celebration a Success Teachers'
on the 27th of July.
Sanpy, July 8. The Fourth was a lively
day for this burg and every thing passed
off in a very pleasant and agreeable manner.
There was the largest crowd present ever
seen in Sandy and all seemed to enjoy them
selves in and about Meinig's park. The
people were somewhat disappointed in the
speaker 's not coming, but alter the reading
of the Declaration of Independence, Rich
ard Bradley consented to address the au
dience and made some very pleasing and
appropriate remarks after which Clarence
Stephens favored the crowd with a pleasing
declamation. A Mr. Freemont then de
livered a fine speech which was very appro
priate and much enjoyed by all present.
A grand school picnic is the next thing
on the program for the park at this place.
It will beheld on the 27th of July at the
park and will be a gala day for the teachers
and schools of this place and all the sur
rounding country. The Metropolitan band
of Portland will furnish music for the occa
sion and a fine program is being prepared.
Everybody interested in the schools or in
, educational work is invited to be present
as a grand time is assured.
The M. A. Ross G. A. R. post, of Pleasant
Home, is planning to have a reunion and
picnic sometime in August which will prob
ably last a couple of days. The annoutiee
nient of this meeting will be made later.

The morning of the Fourth dawned with
brightness and beauty, and by ten o'clock
the grove in which we celebrated was filled
with a happy looking crowd of people from
every direction. The program was made up
and at 11 o'clock Walter Holcomb, Esq.,
took the platform as chairman. 1 1 irst on
the program was the singing of " America"
by the choir. Miss Helen Taylor was then
introduced and recited the Declaration of
Independence. H. 8. Strange of Oregon
delivered the oration which was principally
devoted to the necessity of educating tbe
youth of our country to patriotism. A
song, "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp," was sung
by the children while marching under a
flag, after which a recess till two was taken
for dinner, which was Indulged in heartily
by all. Dancing, swinging, croquet and
other amusement filled up tbe time of the
afternoon. During the shaking a tremen
dous roar came from the direction of the
anvil that had been used in tbe morning in
the place of cannon. It had been heavily
charged and left by some thoughtless per
son to be fired at the close of the address.
Some small boys went too close with fire
crackers and the charge was set off. Little
Harry, son of Carl Howell, was badly
shocked and his face powder burned. Les
ter, son of Jack Marrs, was hurt about the
Jtgs but not seriously.
Mr. Bullard, an old gentleman of Currins
ville, was stricken with palsy at the cele
bration the evening of the Fourth. It has
been reported since that he is recovering.

CAPTURED THE SPEAKER.
To thi Editor: Please allow nie the
privilege to give an explanation regarding
the celebration at Wrights Springs on the
Fourth. After the celebration had been
started, Knotts i Nash leased the grounds
and went ahead with the celebration. C.
A. Fitch, of Portland, was engaged to de
liver the oration which he did giving good
satisfaction. Shortly alter his address was
completed one or two gentlemen made
themselves very persistent indeed by taking
posession ol the grounds without any con-1
sent of tbe managers and passed the hat to
pay Mr. Fitch. The Courier published lust
week that we refused to pay the speaker,
which is not true. Mr. Fitch will tell any
one that he was taken away without saying
one word to the managers, and how in the
name of common sense could he be paid
his fees. Furthermore tbe managers have
5 for Mr. Fitch. Strangs indeed, but
nevertheless true. Jealous and envious
people can accumulate confusion.

Of all things the
is particular about, it is the quality of
bread for her table. Good home made
bread is not equaled by the ordinary
bakery and to meet this requirement,
Mr. J. Kgle of the fjliively bakery'
has put on the market his celebrated
home made bread. This bread is made
from the same kind of flour that is ground
for export and none of the processes are
used in its manufacture that, while giv
ing the bread a fine appearance, ruin its
quality. The utmost cleanliness is ob
served in all departments and the pa
trons of the bakery are invited to in
spect it at any time, that they may see
for themselves how their bread is pre
