people have also been after Brady.
The Guard says : Constable Dan Linton
noticed a man near the (Jalef place Mon
day that answered the description of Bill
Brown, alias Jack Brady, the murderer
of Sheriff Bogard,of Tehama county, Cat.
The individual kept his eye on Linton
and his right hand suspiciously deep
down in his coat pocket. Afterward he
went to Mr. Calet's house and got his
dinner, eating with his left hand and
never taking the other hand out of his
coat pocket. The man was seen by sev
eral other persons and they all agree that
his description answers that of the mur
derer wanted. -Last evening M. V. Mc
Murrv and Blufcrd Deadmond left here
heavily armed to arrest the man and
bring htm in, if he is to be found, when
the mystery will be solved. . McMurry
returned this afternoon and states that
they found the man near Coburg. They
examined him carefully and state that
he answers the description exceuting in
height and sixe of feet . lie lias been
roaming around the country and acting
in a suspicious manner, tie told a num
ber of different stones, claiming to have
come from the mines in Southern Ore
gon. The man seen by Wilson was a differ
ent man, in fact could'nt have been the
same. The description of the man seen
last at Sledd is very correct.
School Hoi sk Blown- Up. The Ping
Yang school house was located in the
Mohawk valley about 10 or 13 miles east
of this city. It is a new district, hi. -ing
recently oeen estauusea. Since iu es
tablishment there has been considerable
animosity in tne district over the loca
tion of the school house .and other thinea
The building was a comparatively new
one. thousrh builtjon a cheaD nlan. the
contract price being 1300. About two
months acoan attempt was made to burn
the school house bv niacin? a can of cnal
oil on the floor and" petting fire to it; but
the scheme tailed and tbe nre went out
without consuming the oil. Last nieht
at 10 o'clock a second attempt was made
to destroy the building and this time with
better success. Several sticks of dyna
mited were placed under the house'and
exploded, with the result that the build
ing was completely demolished. School
house, books and furniture quit the
hitherto quiet regions of Ping Vang bv

neara tor miles about. fcugene Uoard.
A Liv Rchawat occurred this fore
noon. . G. S. Acheson's drav team
started from near the Magnolia Mills and
ran east along First street. Geo. ilugbes
and J. F. Troutman's tisms were in
iront of V. C. Davis' just eurting to
take a load of furniture. Mr. Troatman
jumpad upon the Hughes dray and tried
to get the team out of the way. The
dray was hit a pretty solid blow, tnd the
horses almost knocked down, while Mr.
Trout man hardly knew where he was for
awhile. The shock had nearly stopped
the Acheron team and a man jumping to
their heads completed the drama. Little
damage was done, though it looked as if
everything had been smashed to pieces
for a moment.

wishes to trot best 3 in 5.
Mr. Oley Wood worth has sold his trot

A Mores Stout. An exciting affair
occurred this forenoon at the Mcllwain
tore. A mouse had been caught and
placed in the stove, and arrangements
were being ruadc by D. W. Rumbaugh
to cremate the captive, when the little
fellow escaped by the lower opening of
the stove and immediately sought refuge
up Mr. Rambaugh'a pants legs, inside.
The scene that followed, like all such
scenes, was pronounced better than a
circus. The uiouse was finally caught
and killed before it saw daylight.

the Oregonian says: "Not much credit is

Bunieuiing mat 1 ntigut say
would prove of interest to the read

CUSe for Writinu Hit
Jft Albany on Monday, April 15. at
10:2a o'clock p. m. and arrived at these
springs, Wednesday. Anril 17. at KnYIn, U
a. ni., making the whota trip without
changing trains. It might beof interest
to say that the overland trains from Ore
gon come to Sacramento.thence to Stock
ton ana on to Ijtthrop and thence on to
these spring, which are two miles from
the station known as Byron. Many peo-
ls wnw iiere 10 no curat ot various dis
eases, but nine-tenths of these who are
here now are rheumatics. Some have
sciatica, some muscular and some in
flammatory rheumatism. All hero are
Calitorniaus except about three. Two
are trom Portland and one was from
Pendleton, but left a few davs ago with
out having received anv relief. Poor
follow, he suffered untold agonies, not
being able to sleep at night. Others get
some relief. The writer is ntcased to sav
that he has already been materially ben-
euuea ana hopes to he cureu. ine treat
ment here consists in taking hot salt
water baths once a day for some six or
eight days, as the nature of the case mav
require. After which the treatment is
continued and completed with hot mud
mining, utcii patient expnrieu to
bathe in the hot salt water for ten min
utes, (the writer very modestly extended
the time to fifteen or eighteen minutes,
to the great uisgunt ot Uie Japanese batn
manager.) After bathing in the hot
water the patient is wrauned closelr in
blankets, given quart bottle filled with
white sulphur water." and directed to
drink it freely, and many drink it all,
notwithstanding it has a most distrust
ing taste. litre no is instructed to re
main 30 minutes, but manv of us extend
the time to lortv and even hftv minutes.
To say that one perspires does not con
vey a very accurate idea of the profusion
of water that escapes from the bod v.
Blankets will be quite wet. as though
dipped in a stream. This may be better
unuerstooa When me lacl is made known
that the temperature of the hot salt water
is about 1 15 degrees, and manv patients
bathe in it when reduced only to 1 10 and
112. A man's flesh, (and a woman's too,
we suppose, looks as red as a beefsteak
upon coming out of the water. After
coming out of the blanket one will
sweat from 15 to 20 minntes. The charge
for board and lodging, which includes all
bathing privilev'ea (esceut blankets) and
drinking the mineral watew, and advice
trom the resident physician, is 1 J to (JO
per week. They have a great variety of
springs, such as "Liver and Kidnev
Spring," "Hot Salt Spring," "Black Sul
phur Spring," "White Sulphur Spring,"
The hurpnse Spring." "Hot Mud
Spring," "Iron Spring," ete. Since I
came here the weather has been roost
beautiful and sunshiny. Thee sprinirs
are in the Joaquin valley, 35 mile south
west of Stocktoa in OomraCoeta county,
a distance ot 635 miles by rail from Al
bany and 6S miles bv rail east of San
Francisco. Hav harvest in these parts
is in full blast. Veople tell me the wheat
crop in this valley will be fairlv good. As
tne reatier has already interred, rheuma
tism here is prevalent as in Oreirm. 1
Rheumatics are here from San Jose. Tu
lare, Napa, Sacramento, Saa Leandro,
San Francisco and other parts and tell
the tale of rheumatism. Just think ol
from 30 to 50 victims of rheumatism al
together at one hotel. Imagine vou see
them start single file down to the dining
room, through a hall 350 feet lone, and
each one with his own peculiar limp. Pour
leiiows, were it not so serious tt would lie
a most ludicrous scene. But the writer
always suppresses a smile when he see
tnem lor he has tbe most lively recollec
tion of recent experiences. But 1st
down thinking I would write half a col
umn but here I have drawn out to a
column and must close.

To those eastern i'oplo who have an
inclination to livo on climate, and are
cpecurian in their taste to the extent of
craving a diversified diet, I would rec
ommend Eastern Oregon, as holding out
more induciieftUi than California. They
carihave the bjtiojy breeze of the Alpine
mountains, thW glorious sunlight of Ital
ian skies; and an hour later can dodge
snow flakes. Then by way of variety,
they.can don mackintoshes and over
shoes, ami slop through rain and slush.
As soon as the reourref Jkis favored
country are better known there will
doubtless lie a boom.
linker City is to Eastern Oregon what
Portland is to the northwest. It is the

THE TIN BOX SWINDLE.
Culducll TclU About it Him
Albaxt, Or., April 25th, 1895.
Editor Democrat :
If you will give mo space in your val
uable paper I will give you my exper
ienco in the tin box swindle. On Fri
day, 18th, of this month, Judge lSlack of
Seattle and Dr. Uorden of the same place,
came to my place to buy land (1 give the
names as given to me, of course they are
fictitious.) 1 J felt somewhat elated to
deal with such prominent men. Judge
lUack represented to me that Dr. Uor
den had just sold a patent in dentistry
for $.100,000, and got the ca.sh,irti want
ed to buy from 800 to 1000 acres of land
and pay cash down. Well, of course, that
suited me, so I told them 1 would sell 7tt5
acres at $35 per acre if they tojk - all. so
.wo looked over part ot the land, was well
picasou with it, ana would come bock
next morning. Next morning they were
li-k by 8 o'clock, so we started gut to
look again. About a mile from the house
w e met a man in the road, he spoke and
wanted to know if we had met a wagon.
We told him we hail not, then he said he
wu an agent of the Louisiana Lottery Co.
and was going round through tbe country
to advertise it among tee farmers and
threw each of us a bill. I told him 1
did not want anything to do with it but
it-oi tne nut m my nana, iiewuuiea
to know if we knew how the drawing
was done. I did not of course. He got
some cards,out and said he would show
ui and shuffled his cards. Dr. Uorden
drew and got a $5 prize, so he handed
him a $5 gold iiiece and Judge Black
drew and got nothing, so I drew, got $5
iirize si he gave me a $ piece, and then
he said there was a $:000 prise and that

And Whereas, tlie public interests of
