iep9tiec ol tbfe paper who has been on a trip
over the Oregon Pacific railroad came into the
office lst night in a rery used up condition ac-
campanll by a shorthand reporter. He seemed
bo inflated "with the pleasure ol bis journey that
b6 -was above work and installing the scribbler
ot hen tfacls at his desk he threw himself at
length upon one ot the luxurious ottomans with
-which the room is furnished, and lighting a two
bit cigar he had somehow obtained, said:
"I went to see 'The Private Secretary' last
night; I have bad a long interview to-day with
one person who is anxious to get a fat city job, and
with another who is more anxious to keep one;
and I have been out riding in the park; and "all
these things combine to make me tired.' I fear
I shall not bo capable of any protracted mental
c-ffort for some time, and have hired a private
fcecretary ot my own.
"Sow, young man, I have just returned from
a aying trip to Yaquina bay, over the Oregon
Pacific railroad, and as the readers of The Oke
fieMAH wbh to know something of that road
and the seaport on which it has its western
terminus, I propose to give some facts concern
ing them and have you put them into readable
"You can begin by stating that we that
means Mr. H. L. Pittock and myself left here
ob tbe east side train at 7:45 on Monday morn
ing last, lou can sling in something about the
beautiful aspect of the country through which
ve passed on our way to Albany; ferule prar
ies, busy harvesters, threshing machines at
work, golUen grain pouring out and all that sort
of thiBg make it kind of poetical if you can.
There is devilish little poetry connected with
harvesting as a fact, I have been there and know
fcow it is myself work from early morn till
dewy eve and be smothered with dust and
Winded with chaff but you need not put that in.
"On arriving at Albany we found a carriage
waiting to take us to Corvallis, and so saw but
little of that thriving town and were not able to
visit any of the newspaper offices there. The
drbe to Corvallis was very pleasant being
through oichards and grain fields most of the
way, the fresh bieeze blowing away most of tho
After a refreshing wash and a good dinner at
the Occidental, wo repaired to tho Oregon Pacific
depot, accompanied by Senator T. E. Cauthorn
and Hon. W. P. Keady, who had kindly con
fented to go along and 6bow us the attractions
of Yaquina. Shortly after we reached the depot
the train came puffing in with over 150 passen
.rots. returning from a trip to the bay, all look
ing brown, hearty and happy. They were under
charge of Mr. 'Wallia Nash, vice-president of the
company, who looked as if he felt proud and
beppy, as he certainly had a right to. He ex
pressed his regrets at not being able to go over
to the bay with us, on account of the expected
arrival of a party from New York, with whom
to had important business to transact
r 'Coll Tan Cleve, an old newspaper man, well
known to the craft throughout the state, who
Lolds tbe office of collector of customs at the
pprt.of Yaquina, and publishes the Post there,
camo out on tbe tram to meet us. It was his
first trip across the mountains in three years.
He lias grown stout and gray in his new home,
but haB the same merry twinkle in his eye as of
old, and thinks there is no place like Yaquina.
"In a few minutes the sturdy little locomo
tire, which fortunately happened to be at this
end of the road when tho tunnel was burned,
was attached to a couple of cars, the party
eteppedon board and we were oft at about S
ofclpt'k. Had we gone to Corvallis by the west
tide train, we should not have arrived till 4:30,
as only a mixed train is run on that road, which
makes slow time. Haveyou gotthatsil'down?
"Well, then, we will go-ahead.
Thexoad from Corvallis passej through a
very .beautiful section of country. You can
shag in all-the adjectives at year command in
describing' It. About six miles out we passed
through the town of Philomath, whero is a
Sod school under the auspices of the United
ethren, Tho school building is a commodious
one of brick and accommodates a largo number
of fatudente. A warehouse at this point would
receive 100,000 bushels of wheat for shipment
over tho O. P. It B. From there on the road
follows Mary's river nearly to the summit of
the Coast range. It winds in and out of a con
stant succession of narrow valleys, among fine
farms and wheat fields, each valley opening into
anouer, tin at lengtn tne surprised traveler
defiles of the mountains finds himself at the
summit without having been aware that he had
commenced their ascent"
"A short distance beyond the train dashes
through a tunnel, and the summit of the coast
range is seen for miles and miles, a constant
succession of peaks on peaks, covered with wav
ing fern the bleached trunks of trees destroyed
by fire about fiftyyears since. The whole range
looks like au immense pasture, which it will
ultimately become when the fern has been dis
placed by the rich mesquite grass which thrives
and spreads wonderfully in trie fertile 6oil which
everywuere cohere uiese iuub, uiero umug uu
rocks to be seen. As the road winds along an
ever shifting panorama of hills and peaks is pre
sented, tho highest being Mary's peak, which is
seen In the distance. In a few minutes the
burned tunnel is reached, and here a transfer is
mado to the train wailing at the other end.
Here Tve were met by H. V. Gates, gen
eral euperintendent of the road. A
large force ot men were at work
clearing the debris out of the tunnel
and it is in order for trains to pass through be
fore now. Tho tunnel like tho other two on
the line was heavily timbered and the intense
beat has burned the rock at either end and
brought it down in carloads. The tunnels pass
ed, a fine full grown locomotive was found, one
of four on the line ready for use. Far down be
low snug farm buildings were seen nestling In
ai little valley and away down there the line
of the road could be seen.
."From Mr. Gates it was learned that the sum
mit of the range is only about 700 feet above the
eea level. Corvallis being about 200 feet above
eea level the ascent on the eastern side is only
509 feet which Is so gradually made as to
be Imperceptible. Of the descent on the west
eide 500 feet is mado In the first six
miles, but by winding around ravines the grade
is kept below 2 per cent The nature of tbe
route, following as it does the windings of
Mary's river on the east and the Yaquina river
on" the west of the range, greatly increases the
length of the road. From Corvallis to Yaquina
in an air line is about thirty-three miles. The
stage road is about fifty, while the railroad seek
ing aa easier grade is seventy-two miles in
length. While there are comparatively few
deep cuts and fewer high trestles, the locat
ing ot the line presented some appalling diffi
culties to the engineers. Four parties were out
for about six months selecting the route, and to
the traveler oter the line the great wonder is
bow they ever found one at alL
"Iuopplng down by a 6enes of gradual
curves and descents, the head of the Yaquina
river is soon reached, in the shape of a tiny
brook, which winds its course through a narrow
ravine half obscured by the rank growth of
ferns on its sides. The road here is in excellent
condition and the powerful engine whirls along
at a rapid rate. Farm after farm is passed in
rapid succession, and numerous sleek, well-fed
cattle and horses are seen, and occasional delay
is caused by an insane desire on the part of
these animals to match their speed oa the, tracK
with the locomotive, the shrill whistle ot which
only puts mettle in their heels instead of
Bearing them off the track.
"Soon the bead of tidewater is reached, and
tbe fresh breeze announces long before a
Climpse of blue water is visible that we are ap-
Sronching the ocean. "We dash along by the
ttle hamlets of KIk City, Caledonia and Toledo,
ibrougb narrow strips of meadow, and orchards
laden with fruit, and see the cows being driven
tip for milking; ive glance at the stakes defin
ing the beds of OjstervlUe, "where the luscious
bivalve is reclining and growing fat; and pass
Oueatta and pull up at Yaquina Cityln about
f or hours from leaving Corvallis.
"Alter a good meal tat the mess-house, a boat
with two sturdy rowers is provided and we
fitart for Newport, tho lights of which can be
frcoa twinkling in the twilight three miles dis
tant Lightly rowed the bonux boat, and the
phosphorescent waters dashed from the oars in
ripples ot liquid fire; and in all too short a time
wa were at the wharf In Newport and scram
bling up the steps. Passing up the street, the
strains of a violin and the patter o! feet
keeping time to the music attracted one of
the party at least to a hall where a merry party
comprising a large majority of ladies were en
joying themselves, but resisting an inclination
to shake our tired feet in ths giddy dance, we
passed on to a hotel, -and after a brief stay
around tbe fire in the sitting-room, -which the
ceoiacsa of lh atmosphere made pleasant we
fought our chambers in the Ocean house, ana the
roar of the surges ou the beach soon lulled us
"And thus ended tho first day, and now Mr.
Private Secretary do you think you can put all
bat stuff into the elegant and Instructive style
o which tbe readers of The Ohimoman are
You think yon can. Weill baTe my doubts
abotitii, bBtyoucan try. Aad now if you are
'ready we will proceed.
"v e rose the next morning at what saemea a
late hour to Newport folks, bet was an early
one for newspaper men, and after breakfast
strolled cut to eee the town. On the wharf we
found Cauthorn and Eeadywho had risen at
some unearthly hour. The tide was flowing
out and the millions of jelly fish, shoals of little
fishes and kelp plants with Iongstreaming ribbons
of leaves attached to their hollow, bulbous heads
made an attractive sight to those of us who
lived in a fresh-water seaport' The town of
Newport consists principally of one street, along
the water side of which runs a bulkhead of tim
ber, constructed at considerable ex
pense. It is situated . on the inside of
the point which forms the north side
of the entrance to the bay. Three
miles away we could see Yaquina City
where the rrcer proper opens Into the bay which
exjands to a width of about two miles in the
widest place. TLe entrance is quite narrow,
about a thousand yards wide, and out through
it beyond the jetty on the south side could bd
seen the ocean and the bieakers on the bar.
"At the wharf we met Dr. Bailey, formerly of
Corvallis, now mayor of Yaquina, J. "W. Brass
field, P. M. Abbey of the Bay View house, J. B.
K. Irwin, and other leading citizens. Near by
was the office of the Yaquina Mail, and we
called upon Messrs. Cole fc Alexander, the pub
lishers, and spent a short time Tery pleasantly.
Mr. Brassfield accompanied us across the bay to
visit the jetty in process of construction by the
government for the improvement of the harbor
entrance. It Is extended & distance of over 3000
feet, and upon its success depends in a great
measure the future of the bay as a seaport It is
formed of rows of piles, upon which is a
a double railway track along which the rock
from a quarry up the river is carried and
dumped to form the breakwater. The plan
bids fair to prove successful, and considerable
alteration has already ben made in the sands
at the mouth of the bay by its agency. "Work
on the jetty was Btopped some time since for
lack of funds, leaving it in such a condition that
a large amount of the next appropriation will
have to be expended to put it in condition for
resuming work. From the end of the jetty the
beach can be seen as far as Cape Foul weather on
tho north and CapePerpetua on the south, while
to the west rolls tbe broad expanse ot the Pa
cific, bounded only by the horizon, and to the
east the countless peaks of the Coast range.
"Betuming to town we accompanied our host
of the Ocean house, James Bader, on an expedi
tion in search of rock oysters, so called. Going
around the point we found a piece of beach
near low water literally etudded with these deli
cious shellfish. The rock is a soft kind of stone
and in it are found, not only the rock oysters,
but also a species of mussel and occasionally
small clams. A little vigorous exertion with an
ax Becured a basketful of the oysters, which are
found equally good raw or made in a soup at
dinner. They are the greatest delicacy in the
shellfish line the coast affords and 'are alone
worth the price of admission.' From the rocks
at the point a number of porgies were caught
and then we came back to dinner.
"In tho afternoon Bader took us out fishing
for kelp fish. Ho had provided a basket of a
large species of shrimp for bait and we bad
lots of fun if we did catch more kelp than kelp
fish. Cauthorn will hereafter be able to give
the senate full Information in regard to tho
depth of water in tbe bay, as he was -obliged to
sound with tbe anchor for some time before he
could find less than thirty feet The kelp fish
is very pretty, but the crabs which were hauled
up occasionally had no charms for most of the
party, till they were on the table.
"It is the opportunitylfor fishing and sailing
afforded by the bay which gives Yaquina great
er attractions as a resort for pleasure seekers
than any of our other seaside resorts. These,
combined with the rock oysters, make it almost
perfection as a watering place. It has long
been a favorite resort for people up the valley,
and now that it can be reached by rail, is bound
to be visited by thousands. At Newport
are two hotels, where visitors can be com
fortably accommodated, but their capacity will
have to be increased in the future. There is
surf bathiDg and bathing La the bay, boating
and fishing, crabs, clams and shrimps, and
plenty of fine oysters, a short distance up the
river. No other place in Oregon presents so
'In the evening we enjoyed a sail in a fine
boat which skimmed the water like a thing of
life. She lay over rather too much to suit me,
and when I moved to the upper side a bad boy
on board yelled, 'Golly, see how 6he straight
ens up when he moves over.' That part is not
to go in, Mr. Secretary, for Cauthorn joshed me
wild about it There was no dance that even
ing so Cauthorn tackled a whist game at the
hotel and got well waxed and so we went to bed
"The citizens of Newnort were determined
that we should see everj thing of note in their
Foulweather. Owing to the stage of the tide
we had to go across the hills and strike the
beach above Point Difficulty a point which a
little giant powder would speedily remove.
From this point to the cape was a lovely beach
for driving, and we bowled along at a rapid
rate. Thelighthouse at the cape is a very fine
one. and tbe keeper, Capt "Wass, showed the
party through it and told us all more about
Funk lamps and lenses and wicks and oil than
we ever know before. In his house were some
of the finest geraniums imaginable, the pride of
Mrs. Wass. The sea air seems favorable to such
plants, as many fine ones were seen at, Newport
"On returning from the lighthouse a flag was
run up at the wharf as a signal to Captain Lem
Davis to bring the steam ferry across. By the
time dinner was over he was on hand as was
also Mr. Brassfield with a hack to take us ten
miles down the south beach to his place at the
Seal rocks. The beach was as smooth as a
floor, and we just sailed along, passing
on our way several streams com
ing down from the shore, among
them Beaver creek, a celebrated trout stream.
Mr. Brassfield's place at Seal rocks is the finest
place for a hotel imaginable. A number of
huge rocks jut out from the shore, while Bmaller
ones are scattered about at short distances. Here
seals and sea lions congregate, and among the
rocks the breakers boil and roar and throw their
spray high in the air. In a cove sheltered from
the wind is a neat cottage and a well-kept
flower garden. Close by is an enormous
'kitchen midden,' or shell mound, covering over
an acre, and some six feet in thickness, show
ing that this had been a favorite resort of In
dians in days gone by.
"The'deposit contained shells of mussels, clams,
rock oysters and bones of bear, sea lions aud
other animals. All were much interested and
delved in tbe bank in search ofany implements
lost by the Indians but coula find nothing. The
fish eating Indians appear to have been a poor
lot The only thing they needed was a stick to
dig clams and a fire to roast them. A luxuriant
vegetable garden covered the monnd and such
cabbages, potatoes, etc, as were there growing
are seldom seen.
"It seemed as if it must have taken millions of
Indians and thousands of years to have accumu
lated such a pile of shells, but after seeing the
havoc made in a sack of oysters on our return
by Cauthorn and Heady, it did not seem as
it it would take so many men nor so much time.
Some of these days Seal rocks will be visited by
thousands and wul be celebrated far and near.
"On our return to Newport Capt Benslll was
ready with his steamer to take us to Yaquina
City; so with thanks to all for kind attentions
and regrets that we could not tarry longer in
this charming spot we bade farewell to Newport
and steamed off up the bay. Ar
riving at Yaquina City, we were
shown through the fine steamship
Yaquina lying at the dock. She has a capacity
forloOOtonsof freight and is especially adapted
for crossing the bar, having iron tanks f orjwater
ballast which can be pumped out to lighten her
when necessary. Everything on board was in
good order, and the ship can be got ready for
sea at a day's notice. Close by was the tug
Favorite, also ready for use at short notice, and
capable of bringing a vessel in from the sea to
safe anchorage in a very short time, It being
only four or five miles out across the bar. In
the round house were four powerful locomo
tives, welghiDg about forty-five tons each, all in
good order ana ready for work at a moment's
notice, while near by were seveial elegant pas
senger coaches, baggage and express cars, In
fact all the rolling stock necessary for the
complete equipmentof the road.
"We slept the sleep ot the just at the mess
houses, and the next morning visited the throe
story hotel being erected close by and which
will soon be completed. Tho river in front otthe
railroad terminus is deep and broad, affording
good anchorage for a large number of ships,
naif a dozen of which could lay along tho dock
ard receive grain from the cars at the same
"After breakfast we stepped aboard the train
and started for home, had dinner at the summit
and arrived at Corvallis a little after 2 P. M.
"During the afternoon we called upon Messrs.
Saunders & Mansfield, of the Benton Leader,
Messrs. Woodcock & Churchill, of the Corvallis
Ualte, and Wallis. Nash, vice-president and
manager of the Oregon Pacific, who gaveome
interesting Information concerning the road
which has always been a sort of conundrum to
Portland people. He feels mora pleased alter
all the difficulties encountered to have the road

tbe tunnel burned last "winter will enable him
to get through steel rails to replace the light
rails now covering some five or six miles ot the
road near this end. and then all will be
1 ready for business. It Is intended to
load one or more ships vnta wheat
at Yaquina this seasQn. The road will soon be
extended to connect with the Oregon 3b Califor
nia probably at Albany, and will eventually be
earned through the Minto pass to Boise City,
Idaho, but when it is cot at present possible, to
say. In the evening we took a stroll around
Corvallis, which besides being one of tho oldest
is one of the prettiest located, cleanest and tidi
est towns in Oregon.
"Next morning, after bidding good-bye to our
genial and jovial traveling companions, Messrs.
Cauthorn and Keady, we took the west side
train, and after passing through a country the
beauty of which beggars description, arrived
safely at home, tired but happy, and our minds

GRA5T AS A PEACEMAKER.
The Trace between Conklin? and Gkrilelil J.
Reeling or Great &tn at Sentor.
Cleveland Cor. Pittsburg Commercial Gazette.
Grant's last visit to Cleveland was during the
Garfield campaign. Garfield, alarmed by Conk
ling's indifferent, almost defiant attitude, and
fearing that the coolness of his faction might
cost him New York in the coming election,
begged his managers to arrange a meeting be
tween him and Conkling and Grant The meet
ing assumed the nature of a grand love feast
and peace was declared, but it "was due to
Grant and to Mrs. Garfield's matchless cook
ing. Grant and Senator Conkling
went to Warren, where a great meet
ing was held during the day. Senator Conkling
was still indifferent, and made no allusion to
Gen. Garfield in his speech. The writer
hastened to Mentor in advance of the distin
guished guests, who were to arrive in the even
ing. Garfield was hurrying about the house
personally aiding Mrs. Garfield in preparing for
the visitors. "When the writer called him out
on the piazza a moment and told him Conkling
had ignored him in his speech that day, Gar
field's face assumed a look of deep trouble, but
be refused to discuss the matter. He could
hardly believe the statement and the moment
M. A. Hanna, chairman of the Cleveland recep
tion committee, arrived at Lawnfield from War
ren Garfield pulled him aside and said: "Mark,
is it true that Conkling made no allusion to me
in his speech to-day 7"
Hanna said that itwas. and Garfield remarked:
"Matters look very bad."
His hopes of a compromise with Conkling
had been dashed to the ground. At that junc
ture the carriage containing Grant and Conkling
drove up. Garfield opened the carriage door,
and Conkling extended his hand and exclaimed,
"General, I am proud to meet you at your
home." There was a hick of heartiness in his
voice. The BeDublican managers had planned
uiu uiccuuj; wiui luusuuiuiaia bjuu, ueuuvuig
that the sight of the father and husband under
his own Eimple vine would impress Mr. Conk
ling. It did win General Grant's hearty sup
port. When Mr. Conkling had alighted Grant
stepped down from the carriage and grasped
Garfield's hand. He uttered scarcely a word,
but there was that in the firmness of his grasp
and the long holding of the hand that made
Garfield's lace light up with pleasure. The
light which streamed out from the open door
fell on those two men with clasped hands, and
illuminated a rare tableau.
Once indoors the party made itself at home.

Garfield, and Conkling, with the grace of a
gallant, delighted Mrs. Garfield with his courtly
attentions. Good old Dr. Bobison, a simple old
man, who worshiped Garfield, led Conkling
aside to praise his hero, as he called Garfield.
Bobison helped buy Lawnfield for Garfield, and
he did not hesitate to openly upbraid every man
who opposed him. In a few moments Conkling
had frozen the old gentleman out, but Gen.
Grant charmed the good doctor with his silent
cordiality, and assured him that Garfield had
nothing to fear.
An informal luncheon was served. The little
dining-room at Lawnfield had never contained
so many distinguished men as stood around its
table that evening. Grant, Conkling, Levi P.
Morton, Logan and a score of others were there,
and every man of them ate heartily and praised
Mrs. Garfield's splendid coffee. Even Senator
Conkling was melted by it, and he lingered so
long at the table that Mrs. Garfield called his at
tention to the fact that all the guests had re
paired to the parlor. He paid her a pretty com
pliment about the excellence of the luncheon
making him oblivious to all surroundings but
herself, and escorted her into the parlor. Then
she walked over to attend some of
the less important guests, for she
knew what was coming. At that
juncture Garfield invited Conkling and
Grant to step up stairs into bis sanctum, osten
sibly to take a smoke. Dr. Bobison and Mrs.
Garfield were preoccupied and anxious from the
moment the celebrated trio ascended the stairs.
No one attempted to follow them. Perhaps no
one will ever know what transpired, but it is
known that peace, at least during the campaign,
was declared, and that Grant was largely re
sponsible for It. It is. believed that he won
from Conkling a promlso to support Garfield.
The meeting was brief. Their cigars were not
half burned when they descended the stairs.
The anxious look had flown from Garfield's
face, and his wife's preoccupied manner gavo
way when she read the story in her husband's
features. Grant remarked that be would go out
on the piazza to finish his cigar, but Garfield
pleasantly exclaimed, "smoke in the house,
general. Smoke anywhere."
A terrific storm came up suddenly as the
guests were about to leave Lawnfield, and all, ex
cept Gen. Grant and a score of rural sightseers,
hurried indoors. The general remained on the
piazza watching the storm. As he stood, with
his cigar between his teeth, the mild mien that
be had worn in society departed under the fierce
inspiration of the battling elements, and he
looked a typical warrior.
That the treaty of peace between Garfield and
Conkling was sincere was proved on the follow
ing evening, when Senator Conkling spoke in
the armory in Cleveland, and eulogized Gen.
Garfield so eloquently that the Immense crowd
of hearers fairly shook the roof timbers with
Philadelphia Medical News.
The cholera continues epidemic in Spain, but
the press dispatches do not indlcato its spread
In other countries, although it probably exists
in the south of France, and any day may bring
the news that It has again appeared in Paris.
As yet there are no indications that it has in
vaded Germany, or that it has appeared in
any of the regions from which the main stream
of emigration comes to this country, and there
is, therefore, good reason la hope that we shall
escape a visitation from it this year, or that, at
worst, it will only appear at some of our mari
time quarantine stations.
The course of the present epidemic lu Europe
has been exceptional as compared with former
outbreaks. For more than a year it has lingered
on the shores of the Mediterranean and in the
Spanish peninsula, the furthest point north
reached by it having been Paris, where Its ef
fects were comparatively small. It does not ap
pear, however, that the disease is any less viru
lent m lype, or that tbe mortality among those
attacked is any smaller than has been the case in
previous epidemics, and the meteorological con
ditions of both the past and the present sum
mers present no peculiarities which would ex
plain the comparative limitation of the disease
and its slow spread. Ail the circumstances
seem to indicate that the warning which the na
tions of Europe received two years ago aa to the
approach of the disease, and the measures of
sanitation which were taken in consequence,
have had a good effect
Of these measures probably the most import
ant have been those relating to water supply,
and those resulting from the general diffusion
among the people of the idea that the disease
is usually communicated by articles of food or
drink, and that when only such articles are used
as have been recently subjected to heat the dan
ger is small. If to this be added precautions as
to disinfection of excreta, and the prompt boil
ing or destroying of soiled clothing or bedding,
which might possibly contain the germ9 of the
disease, there is no doubt that the spread may
be greatly hindered, if not entirely stopped.
The so-called preventive inoculation ot Ferren
appears to have little or no effect as thus far
The work of removing collections of filth, do
ing away with suspicious sources of water snn-
ply, such as wells in large cities, etc., has been
greatly stimulated both in England and in this
country by the threatened danger, and we prob

On Saturday last as Dr. Brown, of Jackson
ville, was returning from a visit to Grant's
Pass, and when near the bridge a short distance
from Gold Hill, his horse became frightened and
ran away. As the cart struck the bridge it
upset, throwing the doctor out, the back of his
head striking the sharp end of a plank with
such force as to mangle it in a horrible manner,
after which he fell off into the water below.
Some men immediately ahead of him on horse
back returned and found him in an insensible
condition. One of them hastened to town and
procured a physician, but before hl3 arrival the
unfortunate man was dead. He was taken to
Jacksonville Monday and buried. Dr. Brown
was about 60 years of age and unmarried.
Ashland Tidings: One of the greatest curios
ities ol its kind ever discovered is now on ex
hibition at the real estate office ot G. F. Billings
in this place. It consists of a section of a black
oak tree about 16 inches in diameter, from the
interior of which protrude through the bark the
points of a pair of deer horns. The stick being
split nearly through the center exposes a part of
the skull which is attached to the horns. It is
not unusual to find articles left in the crotch of
a young tree partially surrounded by the growth
ot wood, but a Blngular feature of this curiosity
is that there are no signs of any limb near the
place where the horns are held, and the wood is
sound and smooth, the contour ot the tree trunk
being as regular at that point as anywhere.
The points of the antlers extend from two to
four inches outside- the bark, and show the effect
ot time on their bony structure. It is guessed
that the horns were firmly fastened in some way
upon a shaved side of the oak sapling, most
likely by Indians, as the slow growth of oak
precludes the possibility of it having been done
since the white settlers first came to Southern
Oregon. The curiosity was found in what is in
definitely called ''the hunting ground," in the
mountains east of Ashland.

only first-class workmen are wanted. These, it
isBaid, are paid $&anLS3UQtfer.day here, and
yet are scarce, while the same class of workmen
only receive 2 26 in Chicago.

said it was not loadod, and pointing it out of the
window at his brother in the field, pulled the
trigger. George received a full charge of shot
in his back and side. At last accounts his
chances for recovery were good.
KEAL ESTATE MAEKET.
The following special report of tha real estate
market is furnished The Okegonian by J. Fred
Clark, real estate and stock broker:
The transactions of the week numbered 18,
amounting to 89,615, as compared with 22.
and i535,5ua aa in tne preceding one. rroDa
bilities are all in favor of the settlement of
Oregon. If it ever had an opportunity to spread
itself it is now when its crops are generally ex
ceptionally fine, whilst those of California and
many other states are but a moiety or less. To
be able to demonstrate the truthtulness of the
boast so often made that the crops ot Oregon
never, fail, and that at a time when partial fail
ure is so general, is a point which we commend
to the guardian of Oregon's welfare the pres3.
Now is the time when it can toot its horn with
out having reason to blush after doing it, and
make the text of its sermons the undeniable
fact "that the certainty of crops is the beat
guarantee of success the farmer can expect."
It is manifest from the reports of rich finds in
many parts otthe state that mining will absorb,
at a very early date, a far larger share of public
attention than ever before in Oregon. There is
no doubt of its being very rich in minerals, nor
that to the present tune it has hardly begun to
be prospected. To a country so productive of
vegetable and animal supples, great mining
camps- would be of immense benefit, since they
would furnish consumers for all kinds of
products and manufactures. Some day the peo
ple of Oregon will wonder why they so long
slighted this branch of legitimate industry. To
give it prominence and encouragement would
be sound policy, for the metals command a
ready market, and the bulk of miners make
their homes In the country- where they make
