China Weddixg A very pleasant par
ty was that at tbe residence of Rev. T. B.
White, pastor of the M. E. Church South
of this city, on Thursday of last week, to
congratulate tlie Rev. gentleman and his
estimable wife upon the arrival of the
twentieth anniversary of their wedded life.
Quite a number of beautiful gifts were pre
sented. Among tbem were a china set, by
MissHanna, ot Corvallis; a pair of statues,
by Miss Lizzie Smith ; glass set, by Mrs.
E. Westlake '"portrait of Gen. Lee, by
Mrs. Etl Carter ; box of dried plums, by
the A. A. F. P. Co. ; 100 M. ot flour, by
A. Umphrey ; box toilet soap, by Dr.
Plummer. It was an occasion long to be
remembered by tbe pastor and his wife,
and was fully enjoyed by all present. , May
Bro. White and lady live to see and enjoy
many more years of wedded happiness.
Chistmas Trees. The U. P. Church
was most elegantly and elaborately decorat
ed on Christmas eve, and was well filled
with okl and young, on that occasion, to
witness tbe undressing" of the beautiful
Christmas tree erected with so much care
and trouble. Beautiful mottoes,expressing
hope, love and tlwnlugiving to the Giver,
were placed upon the walls, evergreen
wreaths festooned the windows and other
parts ot tbe building : the chandeliers were
festooned with flowers and evergreenes.
while in the windows, and here' and there
among the wreaths that enriched theaudito-t
rium, were placed lighted wax candles, al
together making a most brilliant and en
chanting sight. Tbe tree not being large
enough to hold all tbe presents, a side dis
play was made or some or the larger ana
more valuable ones. The exercises before
dearinsj the tree of its valuables, we are
told, were Interesting. I We suppose , that

Am Aaanatna; tatMcat at laatt
A large crowd gathered yesterday on
Fourth street, in front of the Court
house, attracted by tlie moving through
the streets ot one of the old buildings
from John Taylor's lot. Tbe 'building
4U about fifty, feet long, had been
mounted on four wooden truefe? wheels,
with a pair of wagon wheels in front, to
which a team of six stout mules were
bitched. After many tugs tbe old house
started, tbe driver yelling and the mud
flying all over the sidewalk, scattering
the crowd and bespattering the Goddess
of Liberty, on the dome of tbe Court
house, A Aer an hour's time they sue-1
150 feet. Within a few icet of the crow
ing from tlie Recorder's office to Evans
store, they stuck fast, owing to a slight
rise in the street made by tbe crossing-
Tbe driver shouted himself hoarse, tbe
six big mules floundered about in the
mud, but not an inch could they budge
tbe old building. The crowd increased,
and bets were made that they would
never start it again. A teamster from
the redwoods, with four mustangs, had
stopped to watch the performance, a
smooth faced, athletic young fellow.
He eaid nothing until, roused perhaps
by a splash of mud, he walked to the
front wiping his forehead on his sleeve
and said : "1 ain't got but three dol
lars, but I'll bet every d n cent of it
that my four mustangs will start that
rookery out of there." There was a
derisive laugh from the crowd and half
a dozen takers. "Put up the money,"
said the teamster, "If I had more or
knew where to borrow any, I'd see the
last one ot you-" Tlie bet was taken,
Jerry Farmer held stakes, the six mules
were taken off aud the four mustangs
hitched on. Meanwhile the interest ot
the crowd increased, and bets were free
ly made with big odds against the
teamster. When ready to st,art the ex
citement was at a high pitch. The little
mnstangs bent to their work, but the
house did not move ; he started tbem
again jaa 0. OT Jfothing , daunte6VJ.hai
teamster, in answer to the crowd, who
were chaffing him' from all quarters,
said, "If Jim Shaw was here I'd get tbe
money and bet fifty dollars that I could
start it. I ain't got'em warmed up yet.'
I'll bet you fifty dollars against one of
your horses," said a well-known livery
man, "that you can't pull it five feet."
'It's a whack," said the teamster, "put
up the coin." The money was handed
to Jerry Farmer, I the stakeholder.
Another tug, the little mustangs seem
ed to biunp themselves, but it was . no
go. "I'll bet you another fifty agin that
mare's mate, you can't do it," said the
livery man, eagerly. "Done," said the
teamster. "I'll bet the la t hoof of 'em
on it, and yon may swing me to one of
them oaks in the plaza it 1 they can't do
it." By this ime the excitement was
running high among the lookers-on, and
side bets were numerous. One offered
to bet a hundred dollars that he could
not do it, and the teamster got a friend
to take tlie bet for : him. Those who
bad watched tlie teamster closely now
noticed a change in his manner, and ca
rious smiles on his countenance. ' He
walked up to each horse successively,
tapped him on tlie rump With tlie butt
end of his blacksnake, and said to each.

down, "I'm with 'em all tbe time and

with a childlike smile, "jest when to

stake .in his overalls pocket he said,

The Montana Missovliah has the
following interesting incident in frontier
life: Daring the Winter,, of, 1867 a
party, beaded by Bacon, the Elk county
expressman, Btarted from Lewistoo, Nez
Perce covnty, Idaho Territory, for Flk
City, a spur of the Rocky Mountains,
whose altitude is not less, than 12,000
feet, through dense timber. . ' .
Leaving Silverwood's . Mountain
House, no stopping place existed until
twenty-six miles were made over mount
ains to Newsome creek. In tbe party,
of some seven or eight, was one' Richard
WSdan,' a Norwegian, well known to
the writer of this article. . He had xhe
ill luck to break, a- nowshoe, and was
advised to take jt back to Silverwood's
as the party could not stop in the snow.
Believing he could go back by the
plainly marked trail in ; the snow and
blazes on the trees for a guide, the others
pushed on and safely arrived at Elk
City, and no fears were expressed re
garding the fate of Wildan, till seven
days later a new party crossed ' the
mountain, and then it ' was ascer
tained that Wildan had not c;one back.
Immediately a party was mustered,
and on enow-shoes started to find tbe
lost man. His trail was at last found
and followed by the hardy pioneers in
seach of him. ; On the ninth day he
was found, still on foot, walking in a
circle on the hard-beaten trail of his
own making, his feet badly frozen, yet
enclosed in the sleeves of his coat, which
he bad wrapped about them, v ;
The thermometer showed nine degrees
below zero a great part of the time he
was struggling on bis feet for life. The
party nndinz mm saw that lie was
thoroughly crazy. On accosting him
and asking him if he was" not hungry,
he at once replied no. He was ted pork
and beans at a house not for back. Not
a trace could be found where he had sat
down, not a sign of where he could hare
taken a rest in fact, with the -cold
never less tlian four degrees below zero,
be never had i. walked... again . had -he
rested. He was brought to Newsome
creek station on the ninth night of his
wild, cold, unfed, cheerless walk in tbe
deep snow tenderly cared for by Wall
& Beard, keepers of that station, and
eventually recovered so as to do a good
season's work with a pick and shovel,
in a mining camp called Ebon . Water
Station, sixteen miles below Elk City
camp. Mr. Wildan ; was a man of.
about 180 pounds weight, short and
stout. . jV-WT -: ,. l-

Brown, Deputy V. S. tax, collector,
now of Mounl Idaho,, or M. Charles

the general truthfulness ot this, slight
