Mr. Moaawu Clerk of the First District Court held at Oregon under the provisional government in October, 1843. He was suthor of the once famous book .. . .. J . I which he be can on his journey west, In corporating into it many descriptions of actual scenes along the way. The tale was completed Io Oregon City and parte of It were read in the old Lyceum in the winter of 1S42 and 1S43. Among the guets who came to Mr. Moss' hotel was J William Johnson, and to him the author euirusieti - ine i rairie r lower, - io oo with it wi'at he could. Mr. Johnson handed the manuscript to Emerson Ben nett, who In his preface does not claim to have written it. but gives a fanciful sketch of the mysterious stranger who placed the document in bis hand. Un expectedly ihe book became a great suc cess, but Mr. Moss never received a cent of pay or credit. Oregon was far away then, out of the world, so to speak, snd hard to reach or hear from. In the meantime the book went through several editions, amounting In all, so It is claimed, to 100,000 copies, and out of it Bennett won fame and fortune. No one arising to contest bis claim, it always went under his name and he added to it a weak and inconsequent seqiiul, which he called "Leni Leoti." Mr. Moss' first wife was a neice of Zachsry Taylor, Rebecca, daughter ot Thomas Taylor. She died In Cincinnati, Ohio, leaving three children. Two of the children died in the East, but the third, Minerva, came to Oregon and, on New Year's Day, liV2, married Lieutenant GuHtavns Harrison, a grandson of Presi dent W. 11. Harrison. In Oregon City, Mr. Moss married a Mrs. Richardson, who left him three children, two ot whom, Walter and Honora, (Mrs. T. W. Clark), survive. The funeral was held at 2 o'clock yes terday afternoon from the residence of his dnnghter, and the Interment took placa in Mountain View cemetery, where his wife is buried, DUNS'S Til LORY ILLOGICAL. Ills Article Is Calculated to In jure the Cause of Irrigation. Forecast Official Edward A. Beals, of the United States Weather Bureau, Is out in a circular letter denying a recent article in a Washington paper, by E. B. Dunn, The letter follows: . "Mr, . B. Dunn, formerly an official In the U. S. Weather Ruresu, In a recent article in the Washington Star, advances the rather startling theory that the severe hot spell which occurred in tbe Middle West last July was due to the Increased area now under irrigation along the east slope of the Rocky mount ains. Mr. Dunn pnt the blame of the burning op of the corn crop on the shoulders of the irrigation compsnies and the small farmers who are trying to make ths desert bring forth sustenance for man snd beast, and he argiief that the farmer who raises Isrge crops with out irrigation may prosper. "Hessys that low pressors, trough shaped, areaa occupy this semi-arid legion and that tbe moisture evaporated from Ihe soil is commensurate for tUIr existence bnt Insufficient to propel them onward, and warm air Is thus drawn from the south which for dsys at a time flows over the corn belt and withers the crops. "This theory is illogical and Is con demned by the entire scientific staff of tbe weather bare a. It is, in fact, on worthy of serious conilderstlon and its publication is calculated to fniure the cause of irrigation not only In Eastern Oregon bat in all of tbe rapidly growing states in the sub-arid west. "Tbe weather of the United Stales is controlled by Die passage of low and blgb pressure area and these distur bances are carried eastward by the gen eral movement of the upper atmosphere. The geoeral movement of the opper atmosphere is controlled by the differ ences in temperature between tbe poles and the equator. When these differ ences, as io the winter time, are great, the opper currents move rapidly, but when they are slight, as is the case during tbe midsummer season, they move slowly and sometimes become stagnant. Last July the upper air cur rents were sluggish and the high and low pressure areas drifted very slowly, and their inaction waa not in any way caused by the moisture element they contained. Severe draughts and beat waves have occored in the past long before Irrigation was practited and they msy be expected in tbe future as long as the difference between the temperatures at tbe poles and tbe equator decreases, in tbe summer time, aa it now does, snd no efforts oo the part of man can change this order of events."

HCEJF.8 GRAPHICALLY DESCRIBED JoJg9 fialfoway keerlrr a Letter From His Daoghtcr Io which She Te'H of IDr Travels. Miss Silpha Galloway, who is travel ing with her mother in tbe East, baa written a very interesting and readable letter, describing the beautiful scenery along the line of the New York Central Railroad and happenings as they occur. The letter is published in its entirety and follows : Sept. 18, 1001. Mamma and I are on board a New York Central train, sliding along aboct a mile a minute. Tbe roadbed is so smooth that there is hardly any jar, only a little swaying of the coach. We are about 50 miles east of Buffalo, having lelt there at 8:10 a. m. Three other tracks are lying parallel to tbe one we are on, and every occ in a while wa ooertake heavy freight trains and west bound ytcsenKer trains and loose engines dart past os likes flash. They nse the tracks in this manner: Freight traim going east., Freight trains going west. Passenger trains goinn west. Passenger trains going east. a a We are j'ist entering Rochester. Once in a while we catch a glimpse of a long business street, sometimes a tree line-J avenue. Mourning, mourning every where. It was the same in Cleveland and tbe same in Buffalo, and all the towns we have,-pasted through; great sky-scrapers, elegant mansions, down to tbe little bumble shops and cottages, all with their draperies of mourning, a We struck the Erie caqal soon after leaving Rochester and kept in tight of it for some distance. Saw several flat boats. They look like scows built up high and wiih a Texaa at each end. s We are just entering Syracuse. a 1 :45 p. m. Here we ere at Rome. Francie, what did Mark Twain say about Rome, N. YT Tossverny life I i sn't remember it. I can't tell how big the city is as oor view of the town is shut off by factories. O, there are factories every where through this country, mills, Erie canal, railroads ith four parallel tracks, then running parallel to these parallel tracks and crossing them, sometimes overhesd, snd hitting them at all angles are other parallel tracks, trains shooting around in every direction. 2:22 p.m. Have just passed Utica, with its mills snd factories. We are in a wide valley wkli low hills on each side, covered with pretty woods and green fields. We just passed quite a big place, without stopping, but I caught a glimpse of a big factory labeled "Remington Standard Typewriter Works." This train stops at very few places. It is very hard for me to write this let ter, so many things are going on. I can't keep my eyes swsv from the windows more than a second at a time. The Erie canal is still with us, and for some time we hsve also been keeping in touch with a little willow fringed river the Mohawk.
