"Old Jack" Is Deed. County Treas
urer Knos Cahlll Is mourning tho death
of a much more faithful. iiudruped friend
than It la the good fortune of the aver
age fanner to possess. It Is "Old Jack,"
a vigorous and splendid specimen of the
mule family, whose death at 38 years of
age followed years of active and valuable
service for his owner. Mr. Cahlll became
the owner of "Jack" In November, 1N76.
when he conveyed his grain to the Ore
gon City mills. At that tlmn the mule
wus at least four years of nge. A few
years ago tho animal lost nil of his teeth,
und he lived the concluding years of IiIb
useful career on a diet of chopped feed
and soft, tender grasses, until llnally he
succumbed to old age. The fact thut at
the time of his death, there wna not to
be found u blemish on his carcass testi
fies to the vigorous constitution of the
mule und the considerate treatment he
'at all times received from his owner,
who feels that ho ha lost a good friend.
More Room at Post Office. Favorable
action was taken by the tiovei nment
poKt office officials on the recommenda-
1 1,, us of a special Inspector that some
changes be liable In the arrangement of
the Interior of the Oregon l Ity post
office. A part of the spin e' occupied y

north show window, has been exchanged
for additional floor space Immediately In
front and to the side of the general
delivery window. For the present and
until a tenant Is found, the Odd Fellows
will nut occupy the floor space they nc
..iilre In the exchsnge. The change was
absolutely necessary to the satisfactory
distribution of malt to rtrons or tne
office and Its Inauguration Is more than
welcomed by Oregon City people.

Tuesdoy and Wednesday. The grain har

thrashing ha now become general. Fall
wheat yields are everywhere good, and In
the Eastern miction they are generally
excellent. Early sown prlng wheat and

expected, but more than the UBiial quan
tity of Inte own spring wheat and late

the plateau section ha been secured In
good condition; the yields, however, were
generally disappointing. Pasturage In the

but In the mountain it continue good.

Plans of Local Optlonlsts. To make
the moat of the opportunities given them
by the local option law without being
accused of unfairness Is the Intention of
the Oregon State Prohibition Alliance,
as made public yesterday for the first
time. At a recent meeting of the Alli
ance the course to be pursued in deal
ing with their adversary, the liquor in
terest, was determined upon and has
since lcn ratified by the officers and
members as a whole. Their plan con
sists of elections by counties In Novem
ber. Should a county vote to support
prohibition, saloons will forthwith lie en
tirely eliminated therefrom. Should It
go untl-prohililtlon, such precincts as
support prohibition will be "dry" never
theless. Thus the antl-Ilquor forces be
lieve the widest benefit may accrue from
the local option law and at the same
time free them from the charge of un
fairness llait would be brought should
they gerrymander election districts to
suit themselves, ns is allowable under
the local option law. OregonUn.
Meeting of the L. A. D. M. M. The
meeting of the Saphlra Chapter of the
ladles' Association for the Dissemina
tion of Misinformation about our Neigh
bors was a great success. The reputa
tions of several young girls who had
been guilty of youthful follies were ruin
ed for life, and the moral scalp of a
clergyman wns added to the society'
trophies. A resolution to furnish mem
bers with nostal curds for answer at
tached, for convenience In Interrogat- ,
lug people nil about their private busl- j
ness, was voted down, on the ground !
that such Inquiries might be deemed Im
pertinent, or. If answered, might com- j
pel tho society to accept the truth. The :
subject for regulnr debate was. "Are j
Women Brainless Because of Ten and .
Tattle, or Tea and' Tattle Because !
Women Are Brainless?" The discussion;
hemme nuite heated and the subject
wns somewhat obscured by the person
alities Indulged In and the more or less
direct allusion to the shady past of
some of the members added interest to
what, taken a a whole,. was one of the
most successful meeting of the chapter.
