the human system. Her lectures are Quite
interesting and highly instructive. The

fortunately no other necessary subjects are
half so much neglected.

Cure for Horses.
A writer to the Salem Statesman, who
seems to have had some experience with the
disease that is playing such havoc among
the horses of the country, gives the follow
ing treatment for the disease: This being a
typhoid disease, requires a sustaining treat
ment or a cure will be very doubtful. In
the early stage of the disease, give the first
two days ten drops of tincture of accooite,
or bryona, in a little water, every six hours;
after which give in a pail of water to drink,
once a day, one ounce of spirits of nitre or
two drachms of extract of belladona; and
give in the feed throe times a day one of
the following powders: Gentian root, salt
petre and anise seed, of each one ounce:
sulphate of quinine, one drachm; mix and
divide into eight powders, or powdered cin
chona, and powdered quassia of each two
ounce?, powdered anise seed, one ounce,
mix and divide into four powders; the throat
should be bathed in mustard and vinegar;
no hay should be given, but scalded oats
and wheat bran, with linseed teajor oatmeal
gruel, should constitute the diet; a few
carrots would be very good, and above all
g ood nursing is very desirable.
N codes Will Come.
The Columbia W. T. Chronicle says: It
is current in the west that in many Eastern
places our people are regarded as a eet of
savages, ouly half- civilized. This Eastern
opinion, if we are correctly informed, is fed
and fostered by the silly popinjays who
leave their homes in the cities with the E'
Dorado hope that they are on a journey
to a place where their slight minds will be
recognized as comparative leaders, and all
they have to say is "I came, I saw, I con
jured." But when they find the people as
they really exist, they then write home
about the lack of refinement and society.
We say this class, without brains of course,
do more to misrepresent our coast and its
people than do all other agencies combined.
Sensible people come and are surprised at
onr rapid achievements in so short a time,

edly prove to be as great a eonvsnienoe to
the public as the postal card. Another
feature of the combination is that the name
of the postoffiae selling will be printed on

Tremendous 'xxcitsment nut as Storm
On last Tuesday morning sa we were
walking leisurely down tow a, at aome dis
tance away, dowa street, we espied a person
of the male psrsnasioa going ia a eaatary
direction with hat placed oa the -auterior
part of the head pointing at an angle ef
about 45 degrees heavenward. He lookad
to be about three feet taller than the usual
of mankind and he was going at such a rap
in pace that the points of his clawhammer
coat tail was flung to the breece and sound
ed like whipcrackers poping in the air.
We stood amazed at the extraordinary pro.
ceedings before us because we expected
that wiggius storm was near at hand or elae
the world was coming to an end. He soon
arrived in speaking distance of us and in ex
cited tones we demanded the reason for all
this excitement. The moment be spoke we
recognized the gentleman to be our fellow-
townsmas Charles Ewart and he informed us
that tho doctor had visited his premises the
night before and the resnlt was a daughter
of tender age, weight about nine pounds.
So we tendered our politest excuse for the
interruption and passed on.
Wheat That Stands the Cold.
We are informed that a variety of wheat
known as the Red Secos, supposed by some
to be the odessa, a wheat that can be sown
either in the spring or fall, has stood the
freezing weather and coma out all right,
says the Disseminator. Some pieces too of
Clawson wheat have survived and are going
to make nearly a crop. However there is
very little of either kind sown, and the sit
uations may have had something to do with
their passing the ordeal. It is worth while
never-the-lesa to observe and note all these
cases that have weathered through, as val
uable information may be gathered therefrom.
Two Wiyes.
There arrived in this 'city a short time ago
a woman with five children, says theLlba
ny Democrat. She was an immigrant, and
there was a look of sorrow in her face. The
poor children looked fatherless; but they
were not. Their parental relative had come
in advance of them six or seven years, and
had taken unto himself another wife, contary
to the law of our beloved country. Wife
No 2 fonnd that the lost one was living on
a farm in Benton county, and she immedi
ately wended her steps hitherward, found
him, and settled down in Mormon style,
children and all. There is confusion in that
neighborhood now-a-days. We understand
there will be a trial at Corvallis for bigamy
at the next session of the Circuit Court, un
til such time we shall keep the names silent.
Burled ia Snow.
Last week we briefly mentioned the cir
cumstance of a snow slide having occured
in Antelope valley, in which four children
were for a time buried alive. It teems that
during the day (Monday) three of Cy. Pres
cott's children, and one of Mr. Beard's,
were "coasting" on a hill nearly a quarter
of a mile from the residence of the former,
when a huge mass of snow overhanging a
high lelre of rocks near by, became loosen
ed, and before the children were aware
that anything had happened, all four were
overtaken and buried several feet beneath
the mass. Fortunately, Mr. Prescott's dog,
a f.iithful animal, devotedly attached to the
little ones, was with them enjoying the
sport. On their disappearance the dog
commenced barking and howling, which at
tracted the attention of Mrs. Prescott, her
eldest daughter, and a hired man, who in
stantly surmised what had happened and
were not long in reaching the spot, where
they found the faithful canine pawing away
the snow, as if endowed with human intelli
gence. First one and then another of the
children were uncovered, until all were ex
humed, black in the face and all but lifeless.
They were brought to, however, the first
expression of one being "Ma, what made you
wake me up f and of another, "Why dont
you let us sleep ?" Evidently they suffered
but little, and were unconscious from the
first. We congratulate the little ones and
their parents, and propose a new collar for
the dog. Grand Bonde Post.
Careless Accident
Another of those terrible accidents by a
gun that "wasn't loaded" comes from Silver-ton-
Israel Moser, a young man only
20 years of age, went to a for a shot
gun, and as he took it out he remarked to
his brother that it was not loaded. He
placed his mouth to the muzzle to blow
through the gun to be sure about it, and it
is supposed attempted to push the hammer
back with his foot, as the gun was dis
charged, the load passing through his head,
causing instant death.
- Severe Kick.
Mr. R. W. Brock met with a very severe
and painful accident on last Friday evening
near Wells station. He had come in, from
sowing grain in the evening. One of the
horses which he had been working was a
young stallion the other a mare; he had
hitched the latter to the fence and the horse
had got loose from him by some means.
He caught him and on leading him post the
mare she kicked at the horse striking Mr.
Brock in the face on the nose and forehead
which felled him to the ground. The lick
crushed in the bridge of the nose and bruised
head and eyes very severely. Mr. Brock
came up to town on Tuesday's train and is
on the road to recovery. He hopes that
little disfiguration will remain when he gets
An exchange very appropriately says:
It is said that San Francisco capitalists
are? turning their attention to our State, and
contemplate investing heavily la Oregon
lands. The good Lord save us from that
infliction, but if they will come and build
mills, factories, etc., we say welcome, and
thrice welcome. " -
