Saw Hill Burned.
The saw mill of Mr. Isaac Newhouse,
.about eight miles southwest of this place,
caught tire a little after one o'clock on
Thursday morning of last week and was en
tirely consumed. The machinery is all
badly damaged, except the boiler and en
gine. The loss was about 83000 or ?4000.
About $500 worth of linishiug lumber was
burned at the time.
A meeting of the firemen from all over
the state have been in session from and
after the 4th inst. at Astoria, Oregon, where
tbey organized the Fireman's association of

A team driven by Dr. J. 13. Lee this week
a short distance this side of Philomath be
came excitable and ran away. They had
been left standing with the tugs unfastened,
hence they ran without the buggy. They
broke the harness so badly that the Doctor
had to return to Corvallis, riding bareback,
to get another harness before he could pro
ceed on bis way to visit the sick.
William Holgate, eldest eon of E. Hol
gate, has been for some time at Soda
prings, in Jjun county, having gone there
with his mother, for health. While there
he was taken with the typhoid fever from
which he has so far recovered as to be able
to be brought to bis father's home iu this
place. He is now suffering and is very
aick from the effects of enlargement of the
pleen and his late sickness.
During this week one of our up-town
merchants and an individual from the coun
try brought on some unpleasantness with
each other by way of tome differences ex
isting between them, which for a time
threatened war. The m:n of goods finally,
however, succeeded in securing a more fa
vorable position behind such breastworks
and fortifications as to escape the range of
the batteries of the former. When the
smoke blew away it was found that it was
not blood that was spilled. A small adjust
ment of costs seemed to bring about an am
icable settlement of matters, and peace was
then declared without further hostilities.
While Mrs. E. Holgate was over at Soda
Springs, in Linn county, attending to her
sick son, she and her little girl started in a
one horse buggy, the horse being driven by
a friend. After going a short distance the
horse became frightened and started to run
ning and kicking. The driver becoming
more frightened than was the horse, let
loose of the lines and jumped out to catch
the horse by the head, leaving Mrs. Holgate
and her little girl alone in the buggy. For
tunately, however, after running some dis
tance, the horse run its head against a tree
knocking it down and . turning over the
buggy and spilling out the occupants with
out doing them harm,

calling for the anus's, will please say "adver

Oliphant, P. D. Walker, J. T
N. B. Barber, P. M.
Editor Gazette :
As the dry season is now at hand, and
danger from fire consequently greatly in
creased, allow me the space to call the at
tention of our citizens to this danger and to
urge upon all the necessity of great care in
handling fire under all circumstances, and to
request every resident of the city to give
particular attention to the condition of their
flues, moss-covered roofs, untidy alleys,
back yards, etc., and to guard with watch
ful caution at all times against the fire fiend.
I desire also to remind all that the laws
passed by our City Council governing these
matters will be strictly . enforced by the
proper officers, and no one should complain
who has the true interests of the city at
heart. Wallace Baldwin,
President C. F. D.
Mrs. Nancy Allen, the wife of Morris
Allen and the daughter of James and Lena
A. Cooper, after a long and painful illness,
departed this life July 5, 1882, aged 28yrs.,
9 moi and 29 days. The bereaved husband
and four little children have the heartfelt
sympathy of the entire community. A de
voted wife and fond mother has been re
moved by the stroke of death--leaving a
void that earth can never till. She had a
heart to feel and a hand ever ready to re
lieve the sufferings of her fellow beings. A
true Christian woman has gone to rest, and
an entire community mourn her loss. Her
funeral was preached by the Kev. Joseph
Emery, after which a large concourse of
friends followed her remains to their last
resting place in the Newton grave yard,
there to await the resurrection of the just.
God pity the sorrowing husband and
orphaned children. T. J.
