One of the editors of a certain news
paper published not a thousand miles
away found a handkerchief on the street
the other day, and being a natural wit
he conceived the idea of having some fun
He at once hied him away to the "san
ctum sanctorum, seated himsill at tne
table ,tnade a note of the fact that he
had found the article mentioned and
that the owner could have the same by
proving property and kissing the editors
His mind, as he wrote, went for-
vard to the day when some bright eyed
bonnie lass, with a pair of lips that
wer luscious would enter the room cov
ered with water lillies and perfume and
turn her prety face to his and alow him
to sip the nectar as oft as he would; and
he drew much consolation in thinking
how jealous the other printers would be
when thev heard of it. With these
thoughts in hit miud, he handed the
notice to the foreman and awaitea de
velopments; and developements showed
he did not have to wait long.
It appears- that the handkerchief be
longed to an old negro lady who came
up on the cars from Portland, over
whose head the sun of some sixty-five
summers, more or less, had passed, and
whose top-not reminded one of a snow-
slide in the Adriohdack s! She had
dropped handkerchief in the street and
could form no idea where it had gone,
until some one told her about the notice.
Of course she arranged her bandanna
and immediate started for the editorial
den. Arriving there she entered solil
"Lor' breffmy soul! My recklumness
would k ise de tears to flow fdrebber,
on'y fo' de magnifying' kindness ob dis
hoah chile!" and she grined until hev
head resembled a prize water-melon,
with a six pound slice cut out.
"Come heah, chile!" she went on, as
she reeched after the young man who
had slid under the table and upset
bottle of beer in his haste. "I'll kiss
you chile, 'clare fo' god if ef it's de las'
ackt ob dis yeah poo' frame whats soon
gwine to de lan whar kerchiefs aint no
mo' use!" But her appeals were in vain
Massa Tommy kept his position under
the table, spiting like a cat at a dog,
and his hair stood straight.
It took the "devil" ten minutes to ex
plain matters, after which the old lady
went away, probably never to read an
other notice in that paper.
The stock range of one firm in the
south end of Grant county is fifty miles
wide and one hundred and twenty five
miles long. This firm by taking advan
tage of the nefarious swamp land laws
of Oregon now hold possession of the
watering places in this vast region, and
as effectualy keep settlers out, as if they
had a patent for the whole region, ther
is much valuable lands in this reigon
upon which settlers would gladly locate,
but for the spurious claim of these cattle
kings. Sisrthousand two hundred and fif
ty square miles held by one rich comp
any is startling yet it is true. The poor
man who wants 160 acres of this 4,000,
000 acres upon which to make a home
for a family, soon finds that he is pow
erless to contend for his rights and sadly
moves on. There is a condition of affairs
in South Eastern Oregon of which our
law makers and courts are as ignorant
of as of the domestic affairs of the inhab
itance of the moon. An immigrant who
settles in that region is soon made to
feel that he must quit the country or
out of his little property. Th result is
that nobody does settle upon one of
these ranges. How long this condition of
affairs is going to exist no man can tell
Thackeray's idea of a dandy is giv
en in the following note lately printed
in a newspaper of Hull, England:

to show the world he's not ft man.
That's my ides, at any rate."

An exchange says: The wheat
crop of the world is short this year of
the usual supply. The United btates
produces 75,000,000 bushels less than
last year. England's crop is shorter
than usual, and for the first time in
wwrsl rears the wheat crop of
- j
France falls below the average. Rus
sia produces this year a surplus of
thirty million bushels. It is not at
all likely that the price of wheat can
be ns low as last year in the United
States. As to what it will be n this
coast depends altogether upon tne
number of vessels which can be had
to carry our grain to Europe
scarcity of vessels
will keep prices

St. Louis, Sept. 8. Regarding the train
robbery the following particulars are re
ceived: The train was the west bound ex
press, and had 100 passengers, all of whom
lost something and some of them quite
heavily. Frank Lombard, news agent, says:
1 was sitting in the smoKing car taming
with couductor Jack Hazlebacker. We
were up grade four miles from Independence
when all of a sudden the train came to a
stop and we heard loud voices and pistol
shots, and saw lanterns flashing. We knew
train robbers were on us. Hazelbacker ran
back into the train and warned the passen-
., , , a. r .1
gers. They wer an looKing ou oi wo
windows until the roDDers oruerea tnem to
pull in their heads and keep quiet. The
robbers had obstructions on the rail. I am
sure there were a dozen of them, although
some passengers place the number at sixteen
Everybody was panic-stricken and helpless.
I ran out of the car and found the men
beating the engineer and fireman. They
were poorly masked ana an armea wiin
Henry Rifles. They -were swearing loudly
and shooting at random. Express messen
ger Fox had in the meantime barricaded the
express car. They climbed up on the car
ran around and began to snoot, iney men
broke into the car and knocked Fox down
by violent blows on the head. They robbed
the safe of everything. I ran back to the
smoking car and hid most of my money.
The robbers came into the car and bid me
lie down. I did so. They pointed a revol
ver at me and ordered me to fork over. I
said the money was under the cushion.
They told me to get it and I got it in a hur
ry, you bet. They went back to the other
cars and made a wholesale robbery of money
watches and jewelry. Ladies were com
pelled to ait on the floor, and efme bad their
ear rings taken from their ears. In the
meantime a freight tram was coming up
behind us and a brakeman ran down the
track with a storm of bullets behind him,
stopped the train and probabably saved
many lives. After the cars were gone
through the robbers jumped off and struck
for the weeds.
