Died of Consumption.
Miss Louise Shipley died, after a linger
ing illness of several months' duration,
above. Monroe on Tuesday of last week. She
was a young lady of about 20 years of age
and much liked by her acquaintances. Her
funeral took place last Thursday.
Another Aged One Gone.
Mri. Hinton, a veiy aged lady and one of
the early settlers, died at the resideuce of
her daughter, near Monroe, last week and
was burieil on last Wednesday. She was
nearly ninety years of age and was a pen
aioner, her husband having fought in the
war of 1812. She came to this country in
countable manner a spark had found its
way into the desk and ignited the powder
and caused the terrific explosion that was
heard all over town and sent the horseshoe
nails, etc., flying all over the shop.
On last Saturday nir,ht Jos. Spiedell
passed by the barber shop when on his way
home. When he arrived at latter place he
was much surprised to find that his wife and
family thought his body and feet looked
paturaLbnt none of them seemed to recog
nize his head until after he had informed
them that he had only hail bis hair cut.
Cut on the Head.
A severe accident occurred a few miles
West of here last Monday. Mr. Geo. Huston
and T. J. Farra were at work at a log and
had burned and sawed in two, and they were
engaged in stamping out the fire. Mr. Farra
was cutting some brush with an ax. Mr.
Huston was down working at the log, and
by some means had stuck his head between
the ends6f the two logs. Mr. Farra, not
noticing his head, struck at a brush, when
the ax glanced and struck Mr. Huston on
the head, inflicting a very severe wound.
At last accounts it was thought that he
would recover all right.
A Serious Accident -Cut with a Sickle.
On last Saturday Henry Dunn met with a
severe accident near this place, which came
near costing him his life. He was running
a mower, and had climbed down out of the
seat and was attempting to pull some weeds
off from the sickle, when the horses became
frightened and gave a sudden start and
threw Him on to the sickle. Before he could
get the horses stopped, the sickle had cut a
slice of steak off from the fleshy part of the
thigh several inches long and large enough
for a hungry man's breakfast. He got hold
of the lines and succeeded in getting the
o stop, or else the sickle would no
have cut him into mince meat.
t Powder Burned.
Silas Bales and Ira McCormack, of Alsea
Valley, were severely burned with powder
en the 4th day of July at that place while
celebrating that day. They were engaged
in firing. anvils, and had been doing so in
rapid succession. They had just discharged
one and were attempting to reload it, and
while in the act of filling with powder
which they were pouring from a can, the
heat from the anvil caught fire to the pow
der And the whole can was instantly dis
charged while holding it in the hand. Both
parties were severely burned about the face
and hands, and presented rather a distress
ing sight. They have been slowly recover
ing and are now getting along as well as
could be expected.
The workers in Morris & Cox's black
smith shop at Harrisburg, says the Dissem
inator, were on last Friday startled by an
explosion that sounded like the firing of a
heavily charged anvil. The flying debris
about the shop soon cods inced them that
the crack doom had not yet come, and they
commenced an investigation which resulted
in showing up the following facts: In a
tight desk had been standing a jelly glass
about half full of powder, and in an un.ic

The pooling of wool is bringing about the
quarrels and dissensions usual at that time
of year. It is fortunate, however, that
while the great anxiety on the part of some
persons to buy a lot of wool sometimes
brings forth loud talk and a general war of
words, yet as a rule there is no blood spilled
on such occasions, and the world moves on
just the same.
The city express has recently changed
hands, lb we have been informed. The
citizens of Corvallis who have heretofore
purchased things down town for breakfast
or early dinner and then had to wait until
the next day before receiving them, will cer
tainly hope that the change will bring with
it an improvement and cause deliveries to
be more orompt, and with less delay.
This week the extension of the East Side
narrow guage road, from Brownsville south
to Coburg on the McKenzie river, was
opened to traffic. It runs through the
finest agricultural section of Linn county.
The grade was nearly finished by the old
Scotch company, and the road put in run
ning order by the U. il. fit IS. Vo. A con
venient and handsome depot has been built
at Coberg and side-tracks have been put in
where necessary between Brownsville and
Coburg. The train will leave the latter
point at 7 A M. ami arrive at 4:50 P. M.
So says the Disseminator.
Unfortunately George Avery fractured
one bone of his right arm during the present
week. Our smelling committee went
around to ascertain in what manner the
accident was done, but was unable to derive
the desired information. He seemed to
borrow but little uneasiness about the
broken arm, for the next eveuing he tried
to break the man with the torch light en
tertainment by purchasing quite liberally
of his world renowned soap and prize pack
ages. He will recover from the effects of
his broken arm, however, but to recover
from the effects of the prise packages will
require more time.
A Runaway Team Badly Broken Limbs.
On last Saturday a son of the Hon. F. M.
Wadsworth met with a very severe acci
dent, the result of which was the fracture ot
both bones of his leg near the ankle. He
was engaged in hauling lumber to his fath
er's farm near this place and had just re
turned with a load and had left the team
standing near the house while he went to
the house for a drink of water. Where the
team and wagon stood the ground was a lit
tle on the incline in the direction that the
team was going when they stopped. A
chunk had been placed in front of the wheel
to prevent the heavy-loaded wagou from
pressing upon the horses, but it is supposed
that the wheel had passed over the chunk
and induced the horses to start. At any
rate, a racket was heard by the persons in
the house and, when they looked out, they
saw the horses running towards the house.
The son who had been driving them, and
who met with the accident, rushed tor them
and in the attempt to stop the team met
with the severe injury to himself as above
stated. Just before reaching the house the
tongue of the wagon broke and the horses
turned to escape the house, but the wagon
kept straight on, butting the heavy load of
lumber against the house, the jar of which
came neai overturning the house. It
knocked over bedsteads, caused pictures
hanging upon the wall to drop to the floor,
and left things generally in a very confused
state. The crippled boy was getting along
very well at last accounts.
A Trip to Polk County.
Allow me a few jottings. Last Monday
morning I boarded the train at this place
for Polk county --far for much, especi
ally its many well-tih.' and fertile farms.
On our way thither, over one of the best
pieces of ballasted railroad it has been our
good fortune to travel for some time, in al
most absolute security, we saw many things
of interest in this part of the far-farmed
Willamette. Farm house after farm house
greets the traveler's eye, the grain fields
ever and anon waving to the reaper to "put
forth his improved biuder" and gather the
Now the irrepressible brakeman calls out
"Independence." Here we find a bustling,
busy town of some eight or nine hundred
souls, almost rivaling our own beautiful city
in many respects. Much substantial build
ing (brick) has been done here, and much is
being done now. That indefatigable worker
Rev. Anthony Simpson is giving his
beautiful church the finishing touches.
While the exterior may be a little profuse
in ornamentation, the interior is modest,
well arranged and the accoustics are fine.
To say the least,much praise is due the peo
ple of Independence and Rev. Mr. Simpson
for the energy and taste displayed in the
erection of snch a handsome church edifice.
May much good be accomplished through
this instrumentality. This town has now
two good churches. I also visited the farms
of Porter Locke and Hon. B. F. Burch. Mr.
Locke is lying very low at present, having
been stricken the third time with paralysis.
Mr. Burch says he has grown this year the
best crop yet known on his place. Mr. Alex
ander also has a fine crop, a fine' farm and
is just completing a fine residence. Several
young ladies and gentlemen speak of at
tendidg the College here this forthcoming
term, and all would say: "But few places
of learning present superior advantages for
the acquisition of 'letters' to the State Agri
cultural College," located here.

The Firemen at Albany -Contests and Races.
On last Tuesday a large number of our
citizens went to Albany to attend the exer
cises there upon the reception and housing
of a new steam fire engine, which had been
recently purchased for one of the Albany
tire companies. Many of our firemen also
went down; some cf thein went with the
expectation of entering into a contest which
had been proposed by Albany Hook and
Ladder Company. After reaching there
they, together with the Albany firemen and
citizens, repaired to the depot to receive
the firemen from Salem as they came up on
the noon train. A procession was there
formed from whence they marched to the
firemans hall where each of the Albany
fire departments were presented with hand
seme banners from the hands of the ladies
of Albany. The new engine was then
housed with appropriate forms and cerre
monies. All hands then partook of an ex
cellent dinner which had been specially pre
pared for the occasion. A contest then
took place between Albany Hook Ladder
Co. and Corvallis Hook & Ladder Co., each
to run a certain distance and place their
ladder in position and the first one to the
top of the ladder was to receive a purse of
$40 and the second one in time to receive
a purse of $15. The Albany company ran
first but through a misunderstanding ran
before they had selected all of their judges
and hence they had to run it over again.
This time they made it through in 43 sec

ladder from the truck it caught in some
