The most humiliating charge ever made
ugainat the Man About Town is that he
put his shear around article from a cer
tain SuiuIat paper. He deniet it emphat
ically. He never steals an article, even
Oregomiam dispatches. He does do what
all enterpriaing journalist do, gets newa
wherever he can get them, even out of
Sunday papers and aa fur as that goe

Perhaps there are more aggravating
things in this world tlian moving ; but the
M. A. T. has failed to stumble against
them. It knocka u man toper turvey, ao
that he doea not know for certain just
where he does stand on even the common
proprieties. Recently while going through
with the performance the M. A. T. did
numerous circus acts like wiping hi nose
with his watch case, taking out his hand
kerchief to find the time of day, etc.
Probably the iwxt uncomfortable posi
tion In the" world is that of a Common Coun
cilman. He gets kicked like a foot ball for
every step taken. Some times he deserve
to be. Frequently he is misunderstood and
often it serves him right. He is found fault
with for doing too much and for not doing
enough. By the way, confound the up and
down sidewalk on Ferry street. Think of
gntnding 6th street, ugh ; and that side
walk on Ninth street ; and the awful silence
on the Keady liquor law ordinance ; and
the ditch, and that eight foot side walk, and
so forth. Lots of smoke and a little fire of
The best news for the farming commun
ity i that the wheat prospect is first -class
Strictly it is not news, for it is known al
ready, but in newspaper language it is news
of a high order. From all part of the
count v the report is the same. Cereals of
all kind look fine, and if the present
weather program is carried out there will
be a harvest that is a harvest next fall
Eastern farmers may receive forty to fifty
per cent more for their wheat than Oregon -ians,
but Oregonian can raise one hundred
percent more to the acre, which leaves the
balance in our favor. We have heard the
remark made by men of careful judgment
that there is more money in wheat here at
60 cents than on the Atlantic Coast at 9O !

following account of an episode at that place
about as interesting as you often read about
this side of Mexico : A lady.who ha been
residing here for some time past, moved to
Waterloo a few day ago, but, aa ahe had
not payed all of her house rent, some of her
furniture wa attached until the rent could
be payed. What ahould happen a few days
after but that a Conatable.Mr. Wood, should
come to arrest Mr. Keenan, the gentleman
who had attached the furniture. Mr. Keen
an was not quite so easily taken as one
might have supposed, so Mr. Wood deputi
ed A. 1). Leedr and 8. Wilson to help him.
In the meantime, however, Mr. Wood re-
. i . - tr. l ft I I - .
t turned to wiuerioo. uuring nis aosence
I the bovs decided to have some fun, and laid
their plans accordingly. So when Mr.
Wood returned in the evening Mr. Keenan
was nowhere to be found. A search was
immediately hegun.and soon something was
thrown out of the barn, which, In the dark
ness being dressed In Mr. Keenan's clothes,)
looked very much like a person. All start
ed for the suppoaed Mr. Keenan.but, just at
that moment.a revolver was fired. S. Wilson
cried out that he was killed, and fell heavily
to the ground. Mr. Wood and eeverat others
carried the dead man to Mr. Davis's, and It
was found he was not quite dead, but had
received two wounds and would live but a
few hours at most, Mr. Wood returning to
the place where the shooting took place.was
accused of having done the deed, but he de
nied having any arms of any kind. The
boys were unwilling to believe him, so hi
person was searched, but with no aucccsa,
when some one suggested that he might
have thrown the revolver away. All hands
begun looking for the revolver, which was
soon found lying on the ground near Mr.
Wood, where he was accused of having
thrown it. The excitement was now in
tense, and the Constable was glad to escape
with his life. He returned to Watcrioo,told
them a man had been almost killed and was
probably dead by that time. The next morn
ing he heard that S. Wilson was just alive
and that was all. Mr. Wood's position waa
now a very peculiar one, so he started to
Lebanon to see what could be done, still
with the illusion that the man was about
dead. Arriving In Lebanon, about the first
person that Mr. Wood met on the street
was none other than S. Wilson the dead
man. We will leave them here, with Mr.
Wood looking his surprise better than we
can tell it.

of Npecial Interest, a the road lie in the

therefore the uulnpirlng mouotory of hills
and hollows, timber and bruh, log and
stumps, accompanied by an oppreive sb.
sence of inliabitants,much of the way. The
almost painful monotory receives a sudden
and delightful transition, for we are ushered
into ti e august presence- of the grandly
magnificent Columbia, with it environ
ments of mountains , overwhelmingly im
pressive by reason of their imnieuencs in
everything that is necessary to constitute
first class mountain ; altitude, perpendicu
larity, obliqueness, earth and rock. Simple
and intermixed, vegitable growths, barren
wast, over hanging cliffs, pecially impres
sive because of their dangerous appearance,
now and then a stupendous rock, tired of
its imperial hight has sought an humbler
place, by leaping Into the mighty Columbia.
Now, Mr. Editors, you see I have been
trying to describe, but 1 know you really
think a pen o inadequate to such a task
had better, for the credit of its holder, atop

suggestion, and only add, the wide, deep,
