Tue ATtf.mtted Jail DFxrrEnT. Our-
jail contains ttve prisoners, to-wit : NeiJ, ,
to be , hung to-day ' for murder j Moyc,
torge'ry; McFarland,- murderous assault
Cave, ; perjury and Dodson, , larceny.
About noon on 'Tuesday, 'the jjoard, Qco.
Cline, noticed that tlie prisoners' made an
unusual amount of noise, and he immedi-.
ately informed Sheriff Uerren 0f the ".tact,
and that he feared something was wrong.
Tlie Sheriff told him to order the prisoners
Kioto their cells and keep tbetn - there until
he could leave his office at the Court House,
when he would examfne into the matter.
Shortly afterwards 'the Sheriff went into
the jail, and soon found a hole pretty well
advanced Into tlie side-Wall of -the privy;
and ufter inquiry of tlie prisoners aud
further search, a chisel" was lotind with
which the work had been done. 'An auger
hole Wad been bored Into the floor ' of the
privy, probably for ventilation ; the pris-,
oners had tied a string to the clilseir end
to the other end of the string had tied a;
nail, and whenever they quit work jor any
cause tney dropped tlie chisel into tne
auger hole down into the vaults the nail at
the end of the string keeping it suspended
until another cliance was given to use it,
while the nail was covered fiotn observa
tion by Joose, damp paper with which the
floor was-strewn.- The work was proba
bly done by McFarland and Cave. Tlie
chisel had been recently sharpened, and
w3 what is called a morticing chisel.
How the chisel was introduced into the
jail is not certainly known. We know
that the Sheriff has used the utmost dili
gence In looking after the safe-keeping as
well as comfort of his prisoners, and so far
no prisoner Incarcerated in our county jail
since he came into office, lias escaped
And the probability is they"!! all be there
Fersonal. ilr. J. Tyler and wife were
to leave as yesterday for Portland, where
they take the outgoing steamer forCalifor
nla. Mrs. Tyler's health is poor, and by
advice of ber physician the change is made.
We in company with Mr. and Mrs. Tyler's
many friends' hope the ehttnge may prove
all that can be hoped, and that they may
be able to return to Oregon again in tbe
enjoyment of the best of health.
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Price take the out
going steamer this week for California,
where we undersland George proposes to
practice his' profession, dentistry. Success
and happiness attend them. .
Mr. Payne of Seattle, W.T., son-in-law
of Father Freel.ind, spent several days in
the city during thU and last week, visiting
relatives and friend'). ; ; .
Dr. Hin ton and wife, late of Salern,
have become residents of this city. The
Dr. 3s purchased an Interest" In - tlie drug
hott'e lately owned by Mr. Saltmarsh.
Gns. Lay ton, wife aud family, of Cor.
vallis, came down the first of tlie week,
on business and pleasure.
AcQtTrTEt,T. J. Black, manager of
the Farmers' Store, Hal.sey, on trial in this
city last week for forgery, was acquited. The
evidence showed that Mr. Black had drawn
a note in lavor ot tiawiey, iJoua.dc cjo..
Portland, for a machine, at Halsey, and
had then taken it to the parties getting the
machine for signature. - Tliere was still a
balance due Hawley, Dodd A Co., which
was, by instructions of said H., D. & Co.,
to have been paid down, but as the parties
were not prepared, by , common consent
Mr. Black Included this additional amount
in the note. Tlie ink nsed in this altera
tion of the note was different from that
ned in the original drawing of the note,
but was identical "with that used by' the
parties signing it, showing that the altera
tion and the signatures were made with
the same ink, and of course at the same
time. . ...
Fine Stock. Our stockmen will be
pleased to Iearu that Mr. Myer. of Ashland,
Southern Oregon, proposes ' to make the
coming seaon in this and Marion counties
with "White rr'tnee," and "Fleflty," the
latter a young horse purchased by htm in
tlio East last season,, and thought by many
to be the best horse in his stable. , Linn
county is specially fortunate in getting the
services ot such splendid animals, and our
stockmen and furmefS will not be slow, we
believe, to take advantage of the ppporto
nity thus afforded to Improve their stock.
S. MoNTGoHiEiir Who died at his resi
dence in this city on Tuesday, was forty

he was familiarly called, during life, was
honored at various times by his fellow
citizens with offices of public trust, and

on kissing every baby they come across,
and pronounces tiffs promiscuous kissing
of children a "pestilent practice," and say
"we use the word advisedly, and It fa mild
to the occasion. "Murderous would be tho
proper word, did the kissers know tlie mis
chief they do. Yes, madam, murderocs,

Brown, the other day, with a strip of flan

Flora came dancing into the room dido's
you pounce npon Iter demonstratively, call
Iter a precious little pet and kiss ber f Then
you serenely proceeded to describe tbe
dreadful sore throat i that kept yon from
prayer meeting the night before. Yon had
no designs on the. dear child's life, we
know; nevertheless, you killed ber! Killed
her as surely as it you had fed ber with
strvchnlne or arsenic. Your carelessness
was f&tel; Two or ithree days after tbe
little pet began to complain of a sore throat,
too. Tbe symptoms gtew rapidly alaravt
ingj and when the doctor came the . single
word diphtheria 'sufficed to. explain then
all. To-lay a little mound ia the sole me
mento of your visit. Of coarse tbe another
does not suspect and would not dare to sus
pect you of any instrumentality in her bo
reavement. Phe charges it to a mysterious
Providence. : "The doctor says nothing to
disturb the dUmion ? that would be Impo
litic, if not cruel; but to an outsider he la
