House Wednesday nlgbt. Let
every Republican attend.,
Less than a mile south of the city are
several neat suburban residences, that
seem to be built with special reference
to the comfort of their owners and families.
The grounds surrounding them are tastily
arranged, and filled not only with flowers
and shrubbery to attract the eye, but fruit
trees mingle their fragrance with the
flowering shrub and ornamental and shade
trees. As you drive southward from the
city yon gradually ascend until reaching a
point less than a mile from the Court
House, you are many feet above the city,
and can actually "look down" upon Its
spires, its stately buildings Its dusty
streets and long miles ot wooden sidewalks. '
Among the several farms that dot the
prairie, our old friend Mr. Milt. Hale
owns one of the best kept and most pro
ductive. His neat and comfortable dwell
ing stands out boldly In the foreground,
and Is environed by flowers, shade, orna
mental, fruit and nut bearing trees,
among tlie latter some noble white and
black walnuts, among the finest and hand
somest appearing trees that adorn our
Eastern homes. Mr. Hale has a large
and well cultivated garden south of the
residence, hi.s watermelon and cantelopes
being specially idee, as we know for a
fact. We noticed some noble animals ot
tlie horse kind, two to five year olds, all
of them, to use a common expression, as
tat as butter ; " and what was more
peculiar about all of Mr. H.'s stock, all
seemed to be pets. He told us he "breaks"
his horses himself, and in training them
to ride, uses neither bridle or saddle.
The law ot kindness, in his experience.
is better and cheaper in training domestic
animals than mere brute force. Mr.
Hale's is a happy household, and we here
return thanks for kind hospitality extend
ed to tts on a recent visit.
Immediately south of Mr. Hale's resi
dence and garden, is tlie pasture ; and
here we noticed something that struck us
as romarKame : l ne pasture is a levei
piece of ground ot some acres, and scatter
ed here and there over it are several huge
stones ot different varieties, varying In
size from a wash-tub to almost a hogshead.
The query was. where did those roekscome
from ? These are isolated rocks, there
being no others in the vicinity that we
could see In the prairie. Mr. Hale's
theory was. that the Willamette valley
in tlie remote ages was an arm of the j
mtabty ocean ; that vast accumulations of
ice, formed in the frozen North, had by
some force broken loose from the land,
taking with them portions of the rock and
earth upon which they were formed, and,
as Icebergs, they had been carried by wind
and waves and currents into fhl3 arm of
the ocean, and gradually breaking up and
melting, had left these clinging rocks as
mementoes ot their presence. However
they may have gained their present resi
dence, they at least give room for much
speculation tor ti e curious thinker.
Soul h and east of Mr. M. Hale's Is the
farm-home of Mr. Andrew Hale, one ot
the best tilled market-gardens in the
prairie. As Mr. nale did not take charge
of the place until late in the spring, the
crop was not as full and multifarious as he
intended, but. the yield of the several
varieties of "garden truck" would astonish
some of the Yanks. In the nay of water
melons he has no less than three patches
hundreds and hundreds in each enough
to supply the who'e valley, apparently, of
large, red-cored. luscious melons that
make one's mouth water to look at. He
is building a fine addition to his residence,
and when fln'shed he will have more
room than many of the hotels In Oregon.
The cosy residence Is on l lie apex of the
high ridge running across the prairie, and
J gives a fine view of Albany and the height'
beyond. The Santiam ptoal that runs
but. a short distance south ot bis place,
affords a splendid opportunity for irriga
tion, and will enable him to raise the best
of vegetables, and especially smfcll fruits.
In the drvest season. The Canal Is a "big
thing" indeed to those owning land along
its borders. Mr. Hale is a genial, well
informed gentleman, and , therefore has
been and will continue to be successful in
his chosen pursuit. We shall remember
our visit to Ids pleasant place, a few days
nince. with pleasure.
We Intend to be out among the folk.
and shal! take pleasure In noticing the
geneural outlook as wo move along.

George Humphrey is ft mighty hunter
nobody will dispute this, statement.
George and Judge Strabn returned from a
bear and deer hunt in . tho mountains a
few days since. George says they would
not have returned so soon U they could
have found enough level ground out there
for the Judge to lay down on with any
comfort. Be this as it may, George claims
to have killed two deer and a bear ; but he
did not kill the bear in the orthodox man
ner, and as it may be of Interest to others
we give his version of the way it was
done and George is a reliable man. He
says : The bear was about 200 yards
away, when I shot and missed him ; then
the bear turned and came at me, with
mouth open. I stood still until the bear
came up to within reaching distance,
when I rammed my right hanu and arm
Into his mouth and down his throat,
caught hold of his tall, and, pulling back'
turned the bear inside out and then killed
him. He says Bill Brown Is out there
and Bill Is the boss bear hunter. . As Bill
and his partner, who live in a little cabin
in the mountains, were getting their meal
one day. be heard a noise, and looking
out ot the cabin door, described a .huge
bear quietly eating a deer he had recently
killed and left, lying on a table outside.
Bill didn't stop to take down his famous
needle bear gun. but seized his pard's
rifle and fired. This only Infuriated Ms
beat-ship, and he went for Bill, who hustl
ed Into the cabin ; but bruin was so close
hn didn't take time to shut the door, but
skinned right up the side ot the cabin.
while his pardner ran up his back, both
arriving at the roof at one and the same
time, and tearing a hole In the roof, both
were soon sate on the comb. The bear.
meantime, smelling the savory meat, etc.,
cooking on the fire for their Intended
meal, waltzed in and commenced getting
away with tlie grub. This enraged Bill,
and noting the position where his trusty
needle-gun hung on the wall, he tore
another hole in the roof over it, reached
In. obtained it and, firing, killed the bear
and saved a portion of his supper Bears
