Some of the Albany firemen, we under

Mr. A. Lloyd, of Colfax, came to this
county on last Saturday on business. Mr.
Lloyd came to Benton county in 1846. He
says at that time there were but two houses
between Mary's river in Benton county and
the California line; one was a dwelling,
and the other was a very small store kept
by a blind man on the land now owned by
Mr. E. Hartless.

under his careful treatment the sufferer will
doubtless recover as rapidly as circumstanc
es will permit. Mrs. Grimsley is about
ninety years of age.
From a private letter we learn that Mr.
James Williams and wife, both formerly of

camping on one of Nature's greenest grassy
lawns, the sheep got poisoned and as many
got to the creek, died. Although the loss
was but thirty head, the risk was ten times
Mr. Giles Hodge, while in PuTromath last
Saturday, undertook,.-with a brasskettle
full of nails, to ride his mule home. The
mule was used to coarser music, and, to
say the least, did not have a very steady
nerve. So when the nails began to ratt'e
in the kettle he showed some symptoms
and Mr. H. got off on his back in the middle
of the road. There is one more man who is
glad that mules are going out of fashion.
T. J. Blair is in the warehouse business
in this place. He is a practical farmer and
therefore understands the wants of the far

thoroughly capable and keeps well informed

to his customers as he gets it without any
coloring in any way to effect the appear

placed her at low water mark They wait

She soon brought np against the crib work
and there rolled herself to pieces. There

timbers broke and she has the general an-
pearence of a wreck. L. E. Davis is trying
to get her out ot the way of the tide and if
he succeeds she mav be repaired and ready

to most of the owners who have their all

ALMOST A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Horse and Eider Bolls down a Steep Hillside
One day last week while our marshal
Pygall with his family and Mr. Hyte with
bis team were on their way to the bay, Mr.
Hyte stopped the team at a narrow place in
the road and on the lower side of the hill;
it was almost perpendicular, the fern and
thimble berry bushes had grown up so
thick as to conceal how steep the bluff was.
At about the same time Miss Anna Owens
who is engaged in teaching school at Porters
came riding along on horseback, and not
thinking what danger was soon to follow,
she attempted to ride around the wagon on
the lower hillside there being about two
feet between the wagon and the tall fern.
No sooner did she attempt it than her horse
slipped off the grade with his hind feet
and commenced falling; as quick as a flash
she sprang off on the upper hill side while
the horse went rolling down the precipice
below. In jumping off, however, she was
not able to regain her foothold and she also
went slidinUown quickly following the
horse. They only went in this direction
about fifteen feet when the two lodged
against the heavy growth of fern and brush.
The horse lying on his back with all heels
up and Miss Owens down close to him.
Mr. J. W. Williams who was present and
Mr. Hyte immediately went to the assis
tance of the young lady and succeeded in
getting her out of the difficulty unhurt but
consideraly scared. They afterwards got
the horse back on the grade and be too was
not damaged. Had the horse not been a
very kind and gentle animal he would like
ly have seriously crippled Miss Owens.
Instead of kicking and tumbling about like
horse kind is apt to do under such circum
stances, he remained perfectly quiet until
Miss Owens was assisted away from under
Boys and Girls Aid Society.
We have just received the eighth annual
report of the Boys and Girls Aid Society of
San Francisco. Its managers claim for its

The work is free from sectarianism, and

tious. Donations of money, books aud
clothing are solicited.
A Kief Piece of Work.
By chance we dropped into the harness
shop of S. A. Hemphill this week when
our eye fell upon the bed and top pr.rt of a
new carriage which was just receiving the
finishing touches of one of the nicest and
most complete leather tops we have ever
seen. It was composed of the best quality
of enameled leather nicely stitched and
lined with blue all wool cloth made pur
posely for such work. The seats were
trimmed with le.ither in the most neat and
durable manner. The top was put on by
Master Cameron and is for livery-man King.
Roy Raber of our town has had a very
sore arm and hand for at least a couple of
weeks. It had swollen to unusual propor
tions several days ago and had broken open
at the wrist discharging very freely through
an aperture nearly as large as the end of
the thumb. Since which time at several
places between the wrist and shoulder it
commenced swelling very badly which to
some extent the physicians have succeeded
in getting checked. The Drs. are not

The recent parody on 'John Moore' is con

John K eesce while out on his place last
Friday evening, in the attempt to climb a
fence a rail rolled with him as he set his
foot upon it, spraining his right ankle so
badly that the bones of the leg just above
the ankle joint were pulled apart. It is
probably a worse hurt than a broken bone.

Another Serious Accident to the Steamer
Frank Irvin returned from Yaquina bay
last Monday night, sooner than he expected
when he went away. The company for
which he is employed being scarce of men
he returned to attend to business. We are
nformed by him that the ill fated steamer
Benton, which was beached there a few
days ago, was again brought across he
point about two miles and again launched
on Saturday night near where the break
water had been built. In putting her into
the water she struck the sandy bottom and
tilted over in such condition that nothing
could be done that evening to right her up
During the night the actiou of the water
embeded her still further and washed her
part full of sand, sinking her completely,
and bursting off some of her planking. It
is intended to raise her again. A few acci
dents like she has had of late and one would
think she would be a total wreck.

HUFFMAN Last Thursday morning, after
a short illness, the infant son of John aud
Sarah Huffman, aged two years.
Roy Raber who has been afflicted for
several days with a swollen arm, went to
Portland last Monday to take medical ad
vice there. After his arrival he consulted
Dr. Geesling. From last reports of the
Dr's. oppinion of his condition it would
seem that it is anythiug but flattering. It
would seem from the best information to
be gained that there is great danger of los
ing his arm, and some danger of his life.
Mr. Raber haa a host of warm friends here
whose sorrow will bo great on account of
his affliction. It is to be hoped that his
sickness is viewed in the worst possible
light as to results, and that it will prove not
to be so bad and that he will soon be well
