Nick Keller, a railroad hand, dropped

The deceased had been drinking for sev

his hand, which stuck in his throat, caus
ing strangulation and almost instant death.
Dr. Estes removed the meat from the
throatof the deceased, but too late to save
his life. The coroner's jury rendered a ver
diet in accordance with the above facts.

In another place will be found the com

physicians on the contagious qualities of
scarlet fever. The Gazette has during the
last few weeks endeavored ro impress these
facts upon our readers, believing the duty
of a newspaper to deal with all points of
interest to the public and to warn peopl
of danger. There have been somo doubt
ing Thomases who do not have any child
ren to loose, and who care nothing about
others losses who have ridiculed our re
marks on this subjec, as well as hooted at
the idea that it was the duty of city au
thorities bo take steps to prevent the spread
of such contagion, ine city charter ex
pressly gives the city authorities power to
act in this, way.and to prevent the spread of
such things, and if they will not act when
opportunity occurs in such matters we are
certainly unable to find what use there is
in a city government.

For the first time during the season last
Wednesday morning it was ascertained that
two genuine cases of scirlet fever were at
Prof. E. A. Millner's in this place. He was
sent for in the early forenoon where he was
teaching in the south district school in this
place, and on his arrival home he found
one of hi" children and one of the Dubrile
boys had the fever indicated. How they
got it we have not heard. The same ex
posure which gave it to them may have
communicated it to a dozen others in town
and more cases may develop at any time.
It is hoped, however, that no more cases
will appear. Mr. Thomas Graham one of
the directors of the south district schocl,
intends to close the school for the present
until further developments. If the north
school and college should be closed for a
time and churches and other gatherings
dispensed with for two or three weeks it
might help prevent its spread. Scarlet
fever in the malignant form which it has
been throughout the state stands everybody
in hand to use every precaution to prevent
its spread as it is so fatal to children. Its
fatality seems to be worse than anything
else that has been through the country for a
The New Ordinance.
"The city council did a wise thing in
passing an ordinance prohibiting boys under
sixteen years of age from being on the
streets after eight o'clock at night. It will
next be in order for the city marshal to see
that the law is enforced, and we understand
that he proposes to do so. It is also a
crime to sell liquors to minors, and we un
derstand that several saloon keepers have
instructed the marshal to arrest any and
all boys found lounging around their saloons.
This is a good step on the pa: t of the saloon
keepers and we hope the marshal will see
that their desire is executed, Many of our
boys are contracting habits that will in the
end do them harm and we cannot therefore
too strictly guard them from evil acts.
Even now boys of from twelv to fifteen
may be frequently seen deftly manipulating
the cards at a game of poker, or, with ap
parent ease, punching billiards with a cue,
These things do not reflect credit on our
city." Roseburg Plaindealer. Ed. Why

Sam'ljMcElray, a few miles distant from
here in Linn county, sat quietly reading
last Sunday evening after the remainder of
his family had all gone to bed. He heard a
Hock of geese flying outside and thought
that they were coming so cl"se that he could
easily shoot. In accord wii h the thought
he lumped into the other room and steped
upon a woodbox and grasped his shot gun
near the muzzle, and as he attempted to get
down the box tipped and throwed him off
his balance, when the breach of the gun
struck the door instantly discharging the
contents, which passed up across his face,
powder burning the right cheek and eye
and tore the flesh from his forehead to the
bone about as wide as two fingers. Dr.
Lee was called to see him who says that
il only a little closer to the skull it would
have tore away the bone.

Cyrus Powers, a resident of Benton
county, Or., since 1855, at about the age
of 48 years, died quite suddenly at the res
idence of (ieo. Simmons, in this pla:e, last
Wednesday morning, aboft 8 o'clock. His
death was not unexpected. He had been
threatened with consumption for three or
four years. About ten years ago when we
first became acquainted with him he was a
stout, robust man. Some eight years ago
he commenced the saloon business here,
and it is thought that the close confinement,
sleepless nights, and the general injury to
health which that business is thought to
produce, is what brought on the disease of
which he died. He was honest, frank and
true to his friends, and aside from the bus
iness in which he was engaged, we never
heard anything spoken against him
Saturday last while Joe Simpson was en
gaged in attending the wheat elevators in
the Farmers warehouse at Tangent, by some
manner unaccountable to him, his clothes
got caught in the conveyor, says the Al
bany Herald. As he was being carried
along toward destruction he attempted to
tear his clothes off, but was unable to do so
as his coat was heavy new ducking. He
saw his head would soon be drawn into the
machinery where it would be severed from
his body, without some interference, and in
order to prevent it, he threw his left arm
in the way. The bulk of his arm and heavy
clothing partially stopped the machinery.
His screams attracted the people of the
town and they ran to the warehouse and
informed the engineer, who had heard noth
ing but the clatter of the engine. Steam
was shut off and on going aloft they found
Simpson squeezed so tightly in the rigging
that it was with great effort he was extri
cated. Dr. Hill was immediately sent for.
He found the injuries to oe a badly con
tused left arm, from the elbow to the
shoulder, injury of the left side, cut on
nose and gash over the left eye. Surprising
that no bones were broken. He is now
Scarlet FeverA Doctor s Views.
WHAT SHOULD BE DOSE TO PREVENT SPREAD
OF THE DISEASE.
Scarlet fever is an infectious or conta
gious disease and one I think is second in
its contagious qualities to none save small
pox. Bartholo of Philadelphia considers
it less contagious than that of smallpox or
ineaRles, but taking into consideration that
the diseate is not only spread by the healthy
being brought into contact with the afflict
ed as is the case with measles, but it may
be carried in clothing and other articles for
great distances. It has also been suopose 1
to have been absorbed in articles of food
and drink and thus distributed. This it
seems should be sufficient to place it sec-1
ond saying nothing about the great mortal
ity of the disease. Dr. Smith of New York
says, in this city on account of its great
frequency and its large percentage of fatal
cases, it causes more deaths than any other
contagious affection. The susceptibility of
the disease is not universal. It is like
smallpox, diphtheria and measles, all who
are exposed to the disease do not fall a vic
tim to it. It may attack one or all of a
family. The incubative stage varier
greatly in different individuals owing to the
general condition of the system and the
hygienic surroundings. It generally ap
pears in irom lour to seven days after ex
posure and it may not appear for from four
teen to sixteen days. The susceptibility
of the diseases is greatest when the fever is
at its highest, but may be taken at any
time from the first signs of the fever until
two or three weeks after the fever has in
tirely subsided. Some authorities say not
until the expiration of one mouth should
they be allowed to associate with other
children. I think not only for the sake of
others but for the patient themselves, the
same precaution should be used as with
smallpox. That is to keep the patient in
for two or three weeks after the fever has
subsided or until dequamation has entirely
ceased and the patient then thoroughly
washed and redressed before being allowed
to associate with children who have not had
it. I say children for the reason it is prin
cipally confined to childhood. Infants un
der six months of age seldom have it.
Children at the breast are not so likely to
take the disease as those from the age of
two to ten or twelve. Persons from twenty-
five up are not so liable to the disease as
those who are younger but there has been
cases known at the age of from 50 to 60.
All towns or cities whether incorporated or
not should either by mutual consent or by
ordinance, pass a law that all Drs. should
make known the disease at the earliest pos
sible moment, in smallpox, diphtheria and
scarlet fever, and that the family should
hang out the flag to represent the disease,
and that no person should be allowed to go
from the place of the sick to where other
children are without making a change of

A Good Thing.
The people of the northwest can con
gratulate themselves upon the fact that
Villard has issued an order that nn Police
Gazette shall be sold on any railroad or
transportation lines of which he has control.
This if carried out will have its good results
over the past state of affairs. It has long
been claimed no doubt with a great deal of
truth that such publications as the Police
Gazette and other demoralizing literature has
the tendencv to make the youth who read
them to grow up criminals.

The Lost River of Idaho.
One of the most singular features in the
scenery of the territory of Idaho is the oc
currence of dark, rocky chasms into which
large streams and creeks suddenly disappear
and are never more seen, says the Salem
Talk. These fissures aie old lava channels,
produced by the outside of the mol en mass
cooling and forming a tulie, which on the
fiery stream becoming exhausted, has been
left empty, while the roof of the lava duct
having at some points fallen in, presents
there the opening into which the river
plunges and is lost. At one place along the
banks of the Snake, one of those rivers re
appears gushing from a cleft high up in the
basaltic walls, where it leaps a cataract in
to the torrent below. Where the stream
has its oriein, or at what point it is swallow
ed up, is utterly unknown, though it is be
lieved that its sources are a long way up in
the north country. Besides becoming the
channels of living streams, these lava con
duits are frequently found impacted with
ice masses, which never entirely melt.
The other evening we met a gentleman
just from the Coeur d'Alene gold discover
ies, who thinks it is bound to be quite a
mining camp, with every prospect, also, of
becoming a rich one. He says that already
over five hundrel claims have been taken,
and that about forty miles of the country
has been prospected over, and pay dirt
found that has yielded from three to eight
cents per pan; that mining there is com
paratively easy, as gold is found all the
way from the grass roots to the bed rock
and parties working claims there are taking
out 15 to $18 a day, with pan and rocker,
to the man. The gold taken out is mostly
tine gold, with now and then a coarse chunk,
specimens of the latter having been found
that weighed nearly two ounces. Pendleton
