Mr. Luther Elkine opened hooks and in the early
part of the week called on soai. of or eitisena for
subscriptions to stock in the Santiam Ditch and
Canal project. ' We believe so far as he prosecu
ted the matter he met with good success. This is
a matter that is of the most vital importance to
every citizen of this city, and each and every one
should aid in the enterprise by taking stock in it.
Where parties are not able-to take a whola share,
let two or more unite, and thus hare a hand in
the good work. Tile completion of the ditch, as
wo have before taken occasion to say, will be of
greater benefit to this city, directly, than the rail
road. Let us act together in this tnatter and pat
the enterprise through ia good shape. ; :
Loopold Frum, the young man so suddenly
killed by the caving in of a ditch at Sand Ridge
last week, was the son of Judge E. From, one of
the oldest and most respected citizens of Linn
county. Until the news reached hint of the sud
den and terrible tragedy which deprived him of a
son, the Judge gloried in the possession of twelre
noble sons and daughters, all of whom bid fair to
lead long lives of usefulness. This, the first,
death in his family, is all the more grievous from
the sudden and terrible manner of its accomplish
ment. None may tell the anguish that wrings a
fond parent's heart at such a calamity. The fam
ily have the united sympathy of the whole com
munity. 1 ' ,: , .- V '
The friends of the Rev. Mr. Butcher, pastor of
the Congregational Church of this city, made him
a surprise visit on Wednesday evening, just after,
his return from the general meeting at Astoria. .
As an evidence of their esteem and kind regard,
the visitors upon their departure left with their
pastor several two dollar gold and a half pieces,
and other coins of the realm. We congratulate
Mr. Butcher on having such "surprising" friends,
and hope they may take sdeb freaks often.
llenry Merrill bad an accident last week which
came near depriving him of his right foot. He
was bringing a raft of logs down the river, when
the raft struck a snag and the logs piled one on
top of the other in wild confusion, throwing Henry
down and catching his leg between two huge
logs. His leg and ankle was badly torn and
bruised, but fortunately was released before the
weight became heavy enough to break the bones.
Judge Babcr got as far as the mouth of Des
chutes river, cn route to Walla Walla, last week, and
after waiting a day and a half for a conveyance
and getting none to carry him further, returned
to this city. He says the high water in the Co
lumbia haj done an immense amount of damage,
farms all along the river having been swept Clean
of fencing, growing crops, and stock drowned ; in
some cases property owners have lost everything
except the ground. He insists that the officers in
charge of tbo O. S. K. Co.'s boats are the most ac
commodating, polite and gtnial set of fellows he
ever met wi h in any country, and he will never
get tired of speaking in their praise.

Crops, Etc. During a ride through portions
of Albany prairie the present week, we observed
several fields of late sown grain that will be en
tirely profitless unless visited by a rainfall, and
that soon. And although the majority of fields
of growing gtaiu are far enough along to secure
a reasonable crop, yet a good old-fashioned pour
down from the clouds now Would greatly increase
the yield of wheat the coming harvest. From
observation and the opinion of others better able
to judge of the matter, we are led to believe that
the bay crop will not be as full as last season
and it will be remembered that last season was
rather below an average. The fruit crop will
fall below last season, owing to the ravages of the
caterpillar and other causes. Owners of large
orchards inform us that their choicest fruit bear
ing trees have pretty much all died, in many in
stances not producing enough fruit for family
consumption where, in former years, there were
bushels to spare. More attention will , in the fu
ture be necessary to this branch if our faimcrs

Gose Pbospectino. Uncle Jerry Driggs, ac
companied by two old miners, "Messrs. Robi and
Webb, left this city for Qusrtzville and vicinity on
Saturday last, to inspect a placer claim and some
quartz ledges discovered by Uncle Jerry sometime
since. ; They were confident from the assay of
quarts obtained from ledges and from prospects
obtained from gulches in the ncighborhojd of
Quartzvills, that good paying placer claims and
rich quartz awaited their coming. It is the pro.
vailing opinion of parties who have spent more or
less time in that region that there is rich mines
there that will amply repay those who have' the
enterprise and disposition to invest ia opening
them up. If these opinions should prove true,
and there is good digging thereabouts, wo ex
pect these gentlemen to find them, when we shall
be put in possession of all the facts at an early
day. We wish them the fullest success iu their
search for the rich minerals.
Now is rocaCnasce. -The citizens of Browns
ville and vicinity never enjoyed a better opportu
nity to secure first-class photographic work than
at the present, and if they do not seize upon the
opportunity thus offered they will certainly re
gret it. Mr. A. B. Pax ton, one of the first artists
on the Pacific slope, has charge of the Browns
ville Photographic Gallery for a abort time, and
as his reputation for securing splendid pictures
has doubtloss preceded him, he will certainly be
crowded with work. Mr. Psxtan is especially
mi fait iu the "Rembrandt" style, the most ele
gant and fashionable picture yet introduced, and
we advise all, both young and old, who wish to
secure a faithful representation of themselves, to
go to Paxton's and "set" for a Rembrandt. Hi
will give perfect satisfaction or- he won't charge
you a cent. CaU at the gallery and see speci

j risa wool. Mr. Vi, t. Ingram, of tbiscounty.

of wool as we have seen in this country. It was
taken from the back of a Cotswold ram, and was
from twelve to fourteen inches ia length. The
fleece weighed fourteen pounds. The wool
taken from a quarter-blood lamb, hut nine weeks
old, measured three inches in length. Tho Cots

fleeces of finer wool than the other varieties, but
they are larger and make better mutton.

years of age. At the time of the accident he was
helping Mr. A, McDonald, a neighbor, to dig a
ditch for underground drainage. At the deepest
part, where they were working, the ditch . Was
about thirteen feet deep, and eighteen inchc
wide, wilh perpendicular walls, through a soft,
sandy kind of rock. And not apprehending any
danger, no precautious had been taken fur their
safety. But during a pause ia their work, young
Frum looked up and remarked that he believed
it was going to cave in. Tho words were hardly
spoken, when a mass of rock and cartli came
down upon him, burying bun beneath it, and
crushing him to death almost immediately, Mr.
McDonald, who stood a few feet from him, was
alsopartly covered by the falling mass. , lie)
called for help, and although some men were
shearing sbeep about two hundred yards away,
could not make himself heard. But after a short
time he succeeded in extricating himself, and
then getting help, tbey proceeded to did out his
companion. He was found tn Iu uniu it.il
And although his groans were heard fur a law
minutes after the accident, it is supposed that he
was entirely unconscious. ' m .11 the, luv nnrtina
