Terrible Aa uKNT.-l)r. J. L.
Hill, on Sunday, was called on to visit
.-. vom.2mannamlKdwan1Cook.)nl
of Hev. M. Cook, who resides about j
three miles west of Buena Vista. Polk
comity, said young man having that
morning taken the benefit of a powder
blat in his eyes, burning the left eye
almost to a crisp, more or less injuring
tlie right eye, and leaving handsome
evidences of its power all over his face
and head. The circumstances ot the
case as related to us are as follows:
Young Cook, who had been engaged
in splitting or blasting logs near the
house with powder, on i-kturdayeharged
a large log with powder ami building
m fire over the charge, left it to ex-
ploile at Its leisure. Going out to the
spot Sunday morning lie found that
the fire had went out without Igniting
the pWler. He thereupon proceeded j
to build auother fire over the charge I
of powder in the log, and while in the
act of tanning the fire to a fiercer
blaze, the powder became Ignited and
exploded, the whole force of the ex- j
plosion apparently striking him in the
face, burning and lascerating his face
:i above described. Dr. Hill thinks
the left eye is a goner, but tlie right
eye may possibly be saved, and the
sight partially, al least, retained. Too
much earrfiao can not be exeicised
when handling powder.
Fast Stsmueh. The Annie Stew
art, owned by Gilman, Corbett, Gold
smith and Teal, is to commence mak
ing regular trips up the Willamette
river te this city, ami to Harrisbnrg
when "the stage of water in the river
ill permit, in a few days. She is a
very fast steamer said to be tlie fast
ed ever built in California. The fol
lowing description of her is from tlie
Portland linlletin :
i'he entire length of the vessel is
I 'JO feet ; beam. 27 feet ; hold, 7 feet.
Her registered capacity is 2(10 tons.
The cabin is 15 feet in lieight, and 100
leet in length. About 20 feet of the
rear nortiou of the cabin is devoted to
the ladies' cabin. Tlie main saloon,
dining and gentlemen's room, is about
liO feet long. The state rooms on each
,-ide of the cabin number 22. and con
tain about 60 berths. Attached to the
forward part of the cabin is a pantry,
lr and office, eaeh occupyhigditferent
apartments. Site Is provided with
two engines, eaeh of six-feet stroke
and eighteen-liich bore, having a work
ing capacity of over 200 horse power.
The wheefis 19 feet in diameter. 18
feet long and has 17 buckets, each
bucket being 18 inches in width. The
toiler is 29 feet long, including the fire
box tabes, 20 feet long and over 180 in
"Champion" Washer. The new
washing machine now being int reduced
into tills county by Mr. O. H. Scott, Is j
superior to anything we liave yet seen
used, in every respect. With it a
twelve year old child can do a big
washing In one hour, and the washing-1
will be better done than it is, ivue
times out of ten, where done In tile j
old way. Washings tliat have here-
tofore taken two women all day, hard !
work tit that, can be done easily, by
one, in from one to two hours. It is
one of the greatest lalior savors of- the
dav. It certainly gtaea butter satisfac
tion than any- stellar machine offered
for sale. For- part ieuJam call on the
agent. O. O. Stott.
Three HrsWE. The Portland
papers speak of a committee of gen
tlemen having arrived in that city,
who were appointed to spy out the
land" of this region, awt report to a
colony composed of three hundred
soldiers ot the late war. who are pre
I siring, with their families, to locate
permanently, either here or in Kansas.
The most of this colony are now in
Ohio, though some are in Indiana and
Illinois. Tliey represent all trades,
and would be a valuable acptisition to
our State. We hoo tliey may not
lung '"halt between two opinions," but
wlien the re-girt of the committee i
about Oregon reaches them, may be
persuaded to come over and cnt their i
lot wtfh us.

BUSINESS At the last meeting of
Oak Creek Farmer's Club, it was re
solved to build n warehouse at Astoria,
and to that end a resolution passed, re
questing the different clubs throughout
the county to send each one member,
the whole number thus selected to

dy), and draw up articles of incorpo
ration forming a company for such
purpose, fixing the amount of stock,
amount of each share, etc. This be
gins to look like business. The enter
prise lias our best wishes for its suc
cess. Tlie intention is, we believe,
to first secure a warehouse at Astoria,
and then to build or purchase ware
bouses in this city.
G. A. R. The Grand Army of the
Republic give a concert ar.d ball on

R.'s never do things by halves. The
concert will be conducted by leading
musicians of Portland, assisted by the
eighteenth infantry band, etc. Tickets
admitting parties to the concert, 50c
each ; tickets to ecneert and ball. $2.
50, which is awful cheap. There is
ample room on the floor of the Skating
Rink for forty sets dancers. Of course
the attendance will be immense, and
it will be a moving scene. For re

tlie Committee have our best bow.

are glad MacLeod has come to this

Another Victim. The Portland
HulM'H ot .Monday gives this : A few
weeks ago a young miss of about 18
yea is was brought to Portland in
charge of a gentleman, who was to
take her to il brother hi Walla Wapiti.
Wh.n the gentleman was rwtdy to
leave for lhe upper country the girl
was sick and unable to accoinpa.iy
him. but was provided wiA a home In
a private family ou Washington street
until such time as slut -bould lie able
to proceed on her journey. I!cr action
was considered strange, and o ie night
she left her prnteeiots' charge and
went hack to the hotel without expla
nation, intending to leave next tfcly
for Walla Walla. In the morning sia
was still unable to travel, and that
day the gentleman hi who-,- family
she had resided found her. and asked
her how she expected to go without
money -as she was not provided with
that indispensable item. After a short
interview. In which she w as told by
the landlord of the hotel that she had
better remain with her friends until
she received money from her brother,
she consented to return to the family
on Washington street, where it was
soon ascertained that he was mirleute.
This explained things, and as the un
fortunate and wronged creature liad
yet no means to defray her expenses,
a purse was contributed by her friends
here which took her hack into the
Willamette Valley, and her wrongs
were made klioA'n in tlie presence of
the wife of him whom she asserts had
wrought her ruin. Ills another one
of those sad cases we presume so fre
quent of late the world over, and
which will no doubt be retteated with
impunity until some salutary example
is made." We purposely suppress the
names until the matter takes its course
according as the laws which have been
outraged can lie applied for the pun
Ishment of the party implicated. The
girl is a horoeles orphan, of rather
prepossessing appearance, ami ot more
than ordinary mind. Her brother is
expected here this week, when legal
steps will lie instituted by an injured
wife for divorce, and by the wronged
brother for punishment of the scmnp
who has ruined and forever cast be
yond the pale of society a blood sister,
all that was left on earth for him to
hold dear.
Bai Ego. Says the Bulletin, we
clip the following from tlie February
number of the California Teacher : "At
the meeting of the State Board of Ed
ucation, in December last, the Life
Diploma of Nicholas Furlong was re
voked, on the ground of immortal con
duct on the part of the holder. At a
meeting of the State Board of exami
nation, in January, tlie Educational
Diploma of Nicholas Furlong was re
voked for the same reason. Nicholas
Furlong, was Countv Superintendent
ot Santa Clara county in 1869-71. It
is charged that while teaching school
in said county, he seduced, under
promise of marriage, one of his pupils,
and when the matter came to light,
fled the State, coming to Salem, Ore
gon, where lie engaged in teaching
school. The Statesman says the School
Directors, getting wind of the above
charge, wrote to tlie authorities in
Santa Clara comity in regard to tlie
matter, and received renly that the
girl's mother was a loose character,
and the girl no better, and they be
lieved the charge originated in a con
spiracy against Furlong that the only
blame they attached to him was for
leaving liefore the matter was cleared
up. Furlong Is still teaching.
