way of the west side train from Portland.
They took th e McCullough here for Albany

account of the floods were not able to re
turn home on the east side. . They came np
as far as Dairy and remained several days
until they started up here.

a boat and started over the swollen flood
about dark, but - the boat it is supposed
turned over and the victims caught Oh a
stump and screamed for help. Mr. R.
McNutt and others could hear them cream
ing and praying for help, but it was dark as
pitch and there was no boat within miles,
and they were compelled to leave them to
their fate. In the morning Mr. Shaw, who
lives on the opposite side of the river, and
others went in a boat to their rescue, and
fonnd the couple on a stump, both appar
ently lifeless. They had laid there 13J
hours, and it is likely chilled to death. Mr.
Kraus lived about three-quarters of a mile
south of Cornelius.

which herself and some of her friends would

Jefferson Simpson, about 20 years of a:
and a son of Henderson Simpson of Polk
county, was almost instantly killed las
week at the loging camp in King's valley,
by a log accidentally roiling over him. A

for some time has been riding almost' night
and day to attend to the wants of the sick.
At Monroe two Christmas trees are to be

distribution of the presents.- A general
good-time is expected.
Three Persons DrOWnsld While Crossing -Ta-quina
Bay After Might.
A very sad affair occured on Wednesday
evening of last week when George Stephens,
Daniel Simpson and David Dean were cap
sized while in a boat and drowned. It
seems that they had been at work on the
government works at Yaquina bay on south
beech. After the days work was ended in
the evening they started home to Newport
in a skiff. The bay was quite rough and
the night was also so dark that it was dif
ficult to see plainly. They came along very
well until they reached about the middle
of the main channel, when the large swell
that struck their boat capsized it and all
therein went overboard. Their shrieks
were plainly heard by those on the bank at
Newport. In less time than it takes to tell
it several hundred people were on the bank
and' boats were sent out, but so rough was
the water and dark the night that no assis
tance could bo rendered. In fact others
who went out to assist came near meeting a
similar fate. The boat in which those
drowned were attempting to cross the bay
was fonud the next day stove to pieces on
the beach. The bodies of the drowned men
had net been found at last accounts. It is
supposed that the heavy tide took them out

41 closed last Saturday. After the closing
exercises of which Mr. J. J. Clark being
called upon to make some remarks, respond
ed as follows: After some preliminary -remarks
Mr. Clark said:
The perfect harmony which has existed
between teacher, pupils and patrons during
the term of this school is indeed very er
markable an d I will now say to you schol
ars that in your teacher you may recognize
a perfect picture of innocence, whose every
word denotes intelligence blendid with gen
tleness, kindness and affections, and it
matters not upon what remote inhabitable
portion of this earth your future lots may be
cast and although you may live until re
volving years have whitened your locks
like those of your humble servants you
will still retain vivid recollectionsof your
school days and fancy will oiten cluster
around your associations very dear to mera
ry you will Often review the bright and
joyotis faces of your school mates, nor will
you forget your teachers,- their name nor
the estimats set upon their merits, and I am
sure that when in her turns Miss Glass
may be presented to your . minds you will
pause long to reflect upon her gentle kind
ness her assidious effects to instruct in the
various branches of education according to
the age and capacity of her pupils, how she
indeavored to encourage you become intelli
gent, respectible and useful members of soci
ety. To be ladies and gentlemen in every
respects and on all occasions. Miss Glass
has now finished the work she came to pre
form, the manner in which she conducted
her school does credit to her self and is en
tirely' satisfactory to all who are concerned.
She came among us a stranger, but during
her brief sojourn she has succeeded in win
ning the highest esteem of all Who have had
thejpleasure of making her acquaintance.
She is now ready to return to her friends;
she is expecting her Pa to come and take
her home to repair the family circle of loved
ones there. The good name she brought
with her she takes back to her friends un
tarnished. She takes with her her well
earned wages a dollar of which I am sure ho
one begrudges her. And last of all- and
what may afford her an enduring pleasure
she takes with her the best wishes' of both
Pa trons and pupils.
