Shot In the Arm.
Louis Shortridge, living on the Nestncca,
has been troubled with bears carrying off
his sheep, and a day or two ago he dis
covered one among his flock. Calling some
men to aid him, he started in pursuit. By
an accident a young man in the party dis
charged his weapon and sent a ball through
Mr. Shortridge's right arm, tearing the
flesh off from the shoulder to the elbow,
and badly shattering the bone . If things
go right he will not have to lose his arm.
A Sad Cass.
A Mrs. Blair, of Roseburg, who had been
affected a long time with a tumor growing
on one of her lower limbs, went to Salem
recently seeking surgical aid. Some of
Salem's learned and most skillful surgeons
examined the case and decided that the re
moval of the tumor would be attended with
great danger, but, were impelled to the con
clusion that death would soon ensue if it
was allowed to remain, and with a clear
understanding of the situation, the affected
lady and her friends concluded to have the
operation of removing it performed, and
also the amputation of the limb in case de
velopments should show the necessity. Dr.
Kinney, assisted by some three or four oth
er surgeons performed the operation last
week, but the nervous shock proved too
great for her feeble physical condition, and
the patient died soon after. The remains
were taken to Roseburg for interment.

Willis Knighton, a young man aged about
18, son of Perry Knighton, who lives on the
Calapooia, a few miles above Albany, was
out in the field on Saturday last sowing
grain in company with two other boys who
Were harrowing, says the Herald. Some
parties were driving logs down the Calla
pooia, and they were lodging at different
points along the banks. Three or four logs
had lodged opposite the field where the
boys were at work, and young Knighton
told the other boys he would go to the river
which Was but a few rods away and be back
in twenty minutes. Time wore away and
as he did not come back the boys went to
the. river in search of him, but could not
find any trace of him. It is thought cer
tain now that he went to the river and
probably walked out on the logs lodged
against the bank, and that they turned and
let him in to the river. His absence and
the uncertainty of his fate has cast a gloom
over the neighborhood, and greatly afflicts
his parents and friends.

many people carelessly imagine that a news
paper ought to exist and do every thing for
the good of community with an indifference
on their part whether they patronise it or
not. In other words in most every Oregon
town we find numbers of business men who

one in their town andnearly if not all such men
fail and neglect to advertise with their coun

THE CITY ELECTION.
A High License Victory With the Excep
tion oi 'Recorder.
The city election on last Monday passed
off very nicely and nothing disreputable
marred the high public tenor save the usual
wrangling of wire workers and office
seekers. The main issue seemed to be that
of high and low license and while no public
demonstration were made, yet considerable
work on both sides were done, resulting in
the largest vote ever polled in Corvallis and
the election of a high license ticket, with
exception of recorder, whom we understand
is a strict temperance man and a prohibit
ionist, but if a license is granted believes in
a moderate .one. The ticket elected is
composed of honorable, straight forward
men 'who are individually interested in the
public welfare and will work in unity for the
best interest of our city. The following is
the votes received by the various candidates

Gospel Temperance Meeting.
The second gospel temperance meeting
was held in the college chappel last Sunday
night. Rev. Bell of the M. E. Church
South, introduced and conducted the ser
vices. He based his remarks on that scrip
tural -quotation wherein it is declared
"Ephram is joined to his idols, let him
alone." He depicted in glowing words the
terrible consequence of resistence to moral
restraints until the fearful necessity arises
in individual cases of the execution of the
langua-'e of the text "Ephram is joined
to his idols, let hini alone. We must be
under restraint to enjoy freedom. There
was no restraint inside of saloons; behind
the screens all restraint is thrown off. Rev.
Krecker of the Evangelical church was the
next speaker. He brought the subject un
der consideration right direct before the
audience. He unqualifiedly took the
grounds of total abstinence and prohibition
as the only true grounds on this temperance
question. He said the people of Corvallis
ouht to sustain the city council in the last
ordinance on high license. The fact of it
all is Bro. Krecker hit the nail square on
the head, by giving christians to under
stand that they ought to vote as they pray.
His remarks were very brief and pointed.
Rev. Hanna was next, he called attention to
the Rachebite8 as scriptural examples for
total abstinence. Be thought we needed
more enthusiasm on the subject and less
fanaticism. Rev. Wolverton of the Chris
tian church was the last speaker. He re
garded it the churches duty and mission
to handle this question; he wanted pure
gospel temperance. He was encouraged to
see the interest manifested by all the forces
engaged in the temperance work.
Last Saturday morning, sys the Albany
Herald, L. Miller, who lives some three
miles east of town, went out to harrow his
garden with a span of horses and an old rus
ty harrow. In turning round the double
tree got tangled some way and Mr. Miller
raised up the harrow to free it, when bis
hand slipped and the harrow came down
cutting a deep and ugly gash four or five
inches in length, in his left limb behind and
just below the knee. Physicians were at
once summoned, and properly washed out
the wound, and took precautionary meas
ures to al ay mtlamation and resist tne
effects of the poison left in the Wounds by
the rusty tooth. The shock to the neA'ous
system was of such a character, however,
that Mr. Mille? never rallied from it, and
continued to grow worse, his prostration
precluding the possibility of taking off the
limb. Oa Tuesday evening gangrene set in
despite the most powerful remedies, and on
Wednesday morning he died. He leaves a
wife and child, and other relatives in this
city to mourn his end.
For several Sundays past gauleS of base
ball have beeu going on down in the north
end of town much to the disturbance of the
citizens there. The people living near there
owing to the great amount of noise, hollow
ing by the players, and the vile and indecent
lauguage used by them, have been compelled
to regard it as a nuisance. We are entirely
unaware who takes part in these games but
certainly the players should not engage in
something directly adjoining to a consider
able number of lesidences which disturbs
them all day Sunday. ,

GREAT LOSS OF LIFE.
BESEIGED BY TROUBLE.
Fifty souls Gone Down to Death in a Watery
On Sunday night of last week) the stea
mer Grappler, when within four miles of
Seymour Narrows, British Columbia, burned
to the water's edge and sank. About fifty
lives were lo3t, mostly Chinamen. The fire
was first discovered by the engineer about
ten o'clock in the evening, and as soon as it
was found that it could not be controlled,
the captain beaded the steamer for land,
but in a short time the ropes leading to the
rudder were burned off so that it became
impossible to steer the ship. In the con
fusion two of the ship's boats were lost,
and before the passengers could be taken
ashore the fire drove them into the water
so that only about half the lives were saved.

The Pathetic Story of the Sorrows of a
Woman Now on Her Wayjto Corvallis.
San Francisco, May 6. (Special to the
Oregonian. Among the steerage passengers
j who sailed this morning for Portland is a
j woman named Jeannette u. Stevens, wno.
since her departure from her home in Des
Moines, Iowa, has had more than her share
of the world's tribulations. On the eve of
her departure from the east her husband
was seized with inflammation of the lungs,
which terminated fatally. Gathering her
scanty means, she resolved to set out with
her family of five little children, and a boy
aged 14, for Corvallis, where her father and
brother are said to reside. On the way out
two of the children, bright little girls, were
taken Sick, with every symptom of scarlet
fever. When they arrived here they regis
tered at the International hotel, where the
youngest child died. Mr. Davis, a physi
cian of this city, hearing of their sad plight,
volunteered his service, and did everything
in his power to alleviate the pangs of the
little sufferers, but without Avail, as the
second child succumbed two days afterward,
and was buried in the grave so recently
opened for her sister. The mother was
fairly distracted, and gave way to despair.
She was surrounded by weeping children,
all of them too young to render any assis
tance. Tho poor woman won disconsolate
and among 3trangers, and to add to her mis
fortunes, her eldest boy became a confirm
ed imbecile by the sorrow following the
death of his father, and stood by chattering
incoherently and grinning at his little broth
ers and sisters. When the attention of the
Young Men's Christian Association was
brought to the case a deputation waited
upon the unfortunate woman, and in various
ways, including the payment of her bills,
besides giving her enough money to defray
her expenses, materially assisted her. As
can readily be imagined, she Was almost out
of her senses. To the inquiry of the Ore'
gonian correspondent if her relatives in Cor
vallis were apprised of her coming, she
answered that she was not positive that
they at present resided there. Beferfing to
the trials she has undergone, she said she
realized that her health was impaired to
such an extent as to interfere with her min
istering to the wants of her children.

the lady's father alluded to in the above"

LESSON IN SPELLING.
Since the introduction of spelling matches, many
words have come prominently into notice words
that were previously, comparatviely unknown. For
instance, wefird Antiseptic, meaning: preventing and
stopping all fermentation and decomposition, and
Analgesiant: painkiller. Then there is Antipyretic:
cooling down inflammation and fever heat. These
three words, so often mi-pelled, are three of the
cardinal virtues of something that will cure many a
bad spell and that Is Salicylica, pronounced Sal-i-cyl-i-ca.
Warranted to afford immediate relief, and
guarranteed to cure Rheumatism, Gout or Neuralsga.
