Mcliso, Dec. 27. Christmas has come
and gone. Two dances were all the festivi
ties had in this neighborhood Christmas
eve at the grange hall and Christina night
at the Payne school house. Both were
fairly well attended. Most of our dancers
from this part went to Canyon Creek.
- We wish to make a slight correction of an
article in last week's Ektibfhisi. The par
ty that went after Alvis Russell was Frank
8herman, Alvis Davis and Wm. Wells.
They started for Ogle Creek mines instead
ot Redrock. They reached the Red rock

down Henry creek till midnight, when they
Jjuilt a fire and stood around till morning,
arhen followed down the creek till they
struck (be Molalla, stood out In the snow
again that night, and reached the old Joe
Davis cabin at noon the next day. They
were 36 hours without food, two nights
without sleep, waded the Molalla nearly
-waist deep twice, and Davis and Wells got
their feet frozen. Tbe report that the min
ers In Ogle Creek were destitute was en
tirely without foundation.
It is a lamentable fact that when a man
is arrested on suspicion of a crime, the
newspapers must take bim np and convict
him whether guiltv or not. It seems a
travesty on justice that officers of the
law should accept the unsupported state
ment of a self-convicted jailbird as sufficient
evidence to lead them to go 200 or 300 miles
and take a man and bring bim into custody
with no evidence whatever agsinst him, It
seems that the officers have acted a very
imbecile part in the matter of making ar
rests In tbe Brown murder case from the very
Logak, Dec. 30. Rain, rain, rain, and
still it rains. Plenty of mud and roads are
getting quite bad.
Christmas has come and gone, It was
observed in various ways in Logan. One
feature was a Christmas tree at tbe church
where many little hearts were made glad
by the appearance of old fianta Clans.
There was a large crowd and plenty of pres
ents, and all enjoyed a pleasant time.
Death recently visited Logan again, tak
ing this time Mrs. Trotter, sister of Mrs. M.
W.Baker, She was a victim of that dread
disease consumption, and had been con
fined to her bed only a short time when she
died. She was lately from Kansas, and
only 30 years old. She was buried in the
Logan cemetery. The family have the
sympathy of all.
At the last meeting of the Logan literary
and debating society, tbe election of officers
took place, as follows: R. G. Ginther,
president; J. C. Sprague, vice president;
Mrs. Belle Wilson, secretary; F. Wilson,
treasurer. The subject for next meeti ng is
Resnlved' That the signs of the times indi-
cute t!uit another war is inevitable between
the l.'iiiied Stales ai d England. There will
also be the reuding ol the lignn paper.
The Christmas dance at the hall was a
siiccem. We understand a goodly crowd was
j. re-ei land a pleasant time was had. There
were 10 numbers.

The Christmas tree at the church was
elaborately trimmed with tissue paper
chains, catstairs, stars, watches etc., ami an
abundance of candy and nuts were stacked
up at its base for the Sunday school scholars.
A neat program was rendered and every
thing was as quiet and orderly aa any one
could wish. The names of the Sunday
school classea were read otl by the secretary
and how many limes they had attended In
given length of lime and the candies were
passed to them by brothers Jaster and
Kentter, after which a basket and a box,
each containing candies nuts and salt
ginger snaps (beer cakes) were passed
around among the congregation, and all
were requested to partake, especially of the
cakes. The house was filled beyond its
seating capacity and many bad to stay out
side and look through the windows lo have
a good view.
The Frog Pond Christmas tree was im
mense and lighted up in a most perfect and
artistic manner. Words cannot do justice
in describing what was there, and what
wasn't, but a good, active Imagination
would hardly be able to surpass it in g-an-deur,
such niinature lights and so numer
ous. Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters
were present and well remembered by their
friends through St. Nick. Articles from a

The church was handsomely festooned and
decorated with evergreens. To crown the
measure of our content, the new organ, re
cently ordered by the Ladies, Aid Society,
arrived just in lime to furnish the music
lor the occasion. Professor Ogle kindly
furnished the instrumental music, and was
bearlllv encored several times. The sing
ing was excellent throughout, our vocalists
being at their bet. An action song, how
ever, by two little girls, Mabry and Hosa
Cutting, was a little the best thing on the
program. The literary part of the program
was well rendered and interesting, and re
flected credit on the ladies who trained the
little folks. On the whole the occasion was
an enjoyable one, and all appeared to be
