extensive land slide between Summit and derstood the exclamation whoa! else some
Beaverton. At Gaston a bridge washed out
so that the trains comeing from either end
of the road could not reach each other and
hence a connection was prevented. Every
thing was so far repaired as to make regular
connections on yesterday. On the east side
road like causes washed several bridges- and
made destruction to railroad property gen
eral alon the line. The trains along that
line also failed to make connections. About
two hundred feet of the trestle work at the
south end of the bridge at Jefferson was en
tirely washed away, and several more brid
ges on that side were destroyed. It it said
that the water in the Santiam river was
higher than ever known before. The storms
north of here were certainly quite severe.
Wheat buyers from below were telegraph,

wheat was being cared for and to know if
the storm had so far effected the water as
to destroy it.

The Remains of John Dsnnlck Found,
Last Friday young Hannon across the
river, about J o clock in the afternoon while
hunting about five miles down the river
from thi3 place, on the Linn county side, on
quite a large island, be found the remains of
John Dennick, who was drowned near the
saw mill at the lower edge of town on the
1st day of June last. At the time of the
discovery the end of ajlarge log was lying
across the feet of deceased at which time
young Hannon was on the log shooting at
some birds. There was nothing left of the
remains except the bones and these were all
found seperate and had to be gathered to
gether piece at a time. All of his clothing
was found except his hat. Part of this
however was decomposed. His shirt was
found and in a good state of preservation
and was recognized by his aunt, Mrs. S. A.
Hemphill of this place, who had made it for
him. His remains were deposited in the
Masonic cemetery last Sunday. Many of
his schoolmates who attended school with
him before his death, and other friends were
in attendance- at the funeral.
A Dangerous Weapon
Mr. Show, a commercial man represent
ing Messrs. Moody & Valentine of Port
land, dealers in notions, was in Corvallis last
Monday night. He went out after dark
and was walking along the sidewalk when
he claims that two unknown men purposely
pushed him off the sidewalk. Mr. Shaw
had a quantity of money with him belong
ing to the house which he was representing
but he succeeded in getting by the intru
ders and went on around the block where
again he encountered what he supposed to
be the same two men who again pushed him
off the sidewalk. The night was as dark as
the remotest dungeons of Hades, yet Mr.
Shaw thought from the snap of bis pursuers
eyes that they meant robbery. He however
succeeded in passing them again when he
rushed down to Mr. Langworthy's store and
requested the loan of a pistol. Mr. Lee
whom he applied to granted to him the loan
of a dangerous weapon with the lock likely
broken off and the triger lost and which had
probably not been loaded since war times
with the savages on the frontier. Armed
with snch a weapon of death and destruction
Mr. Shaw wended his way back to his hotel
and there remained until morning without
being further molested. It is astonishing
how '"varmints" keep out of the range of
those persons armed with dangerous
