Circular Lettei From Miss Willard,
Tne following letter has been re
ceived from Miss Willard by the W.
C. T. U. of this place:
Dear Sister and Friend: So
often do my thoughts seek them out,
and my prayers follow after their pa
tient workers, that I have resolved to
send a letter of tender remembrance
and inquiry-to every W. C. T. TJ. south
and west, which it has been my rare
fortune to visit in the last four years.
"How goes the battle?" This is a
question always with me. Will not

A singular superstition held by Indians in
the vicinity of Umatilla is detailed by an
Oregonian correspondent. They have re
cently been having trouble with the whites
about laud, and held a conference with Capt
Upham on the loth insL, when he explain
ed to them and told them that they muat
file upon land as other men do to secure it.
The Indians refuse to do thia, or to traffic
in land at all, claiming that it is no better
than dealing in human flesh, as men are
made of dust and return to it at death They
believe that land should be free to all, and
are not satisfied at haviug whites become its
owners. Trouble will probably result.
The permanent . organization of the wool
growers' association of Grant county took

City, on the last Saturday of each month.
The next regular meeting will take place on
Saturday afternoon, March 29th, at 2 o'clock.
Every wool grower througout the county is

At Harrisburg considerable excitement
was caused the first of last week by the ser
ious poisoning of Mrs. Mary A. Boggs, Dale
McDonald, Mrs. Boggs' grandson, and Mr.
Martin Powers, a boarder, on laat Sunday.
Several otherawere slightly affected On
tracing up the matter it waa found that the
troubled came frouvthe flour, as some were
affected from .ating the bread,, and others
from eating tyacuit and pie made from the
same flour. Drs. Mertdenhall aud Davis
wjre called, and by prompt work soon had
all ot tne affected ones relieved and out of
danger. The symptoms of the poison were
those of strychnine. An analysis of the
bread will be made. Mrs. Boggs subse
quently emptied the yeaat made from the
ti our into the hogs' feed and it killed two
out of the three hogs which she was feeding.
. A Tillamook lad was recently the victim
of misplaced confidence, A large whale
had drifted ashore in the neighborhood in
which he lived, aud his father desiring to
possess such a coveted prize, fastened a rope
so the narrative relates, around the behe
moth's tail, and it was at this moment of
triumph that the over-confident youngster
seated.himself upon the forehead of the mon
ster. It appears that the whale had as yet
failed to give up the ghost, aud when it be
came aware of Some obstruction to its
breathing, it gave a somewhat Jumbo snort
and sneezed, the poor beguiled youth fifty
yards out into , the, sea.. The youni? Tilla
mookite succeeded in reaching he land in a
safe condition, however, but iis doubtful

In writing a sort of history of Heppner
and vicinity the Gazette says that the start
was made iu 1865; that there is now a popu
lation of (JOO people; total business done
amounts to 300,000 a year; there are 200,
000 sheep in that section; that the section
produces 1,400,000 pounds of wool annually,
and that the Gazette is just one year old.
School Superintendent Baird has been
busy for several days past in apportioning
the state school fund, says the Oregon City
Courier. The fund amounts to $9400. The
number of inhabitants in the county between
4 and 20 is 4525, nearly 400 more than a
year ago. The sum of SI. 83 is therefore
allowed to each person in the county liable
to attend school.
From excelent authority, says the Dallas,
Oregon Itemizer, we have derived the pleas
ing information that a grist mill will be
surely built in Dallas this year, upon the
site of the one burned down about a year
ago. The new mill will be a larger one, and
will have a capacity of 100 bbl. per day.

Quite a number of persons in Portland and
vicinity are preparing to move over to the
Xestucca country this summer and make new
homes in that region. They will be joined
by several parties from the eastern states,
and make up a considerable settlement.
Phere are many spots in that country where
settlements can easily be cleared, aud a large
number of people will go in there this year.
AH told, over fifty ladies have registered
their names herein order to. vote at the
next election, says the Walla Walla States
man, Iu view of the fact that the ranks of
both parties are filled with political cranks
we are really pleased that the ladies have
come to the front. Men are so fooled anil
led by the nose by these monomaniacs that
the votes of level-headed women will be
uecessai y to equalize them. Therefore we
say "sai. in ladies and register, the last one
of you."
There is some prospects that there will be
a Government ship-yard establi-hed at Lake 1
Washington, W. T. , The Seattle Herald
quotes a correspondent in this language:
There seems to be a great deal of inte-est
manifested by the goernmeut iu the plan.
I have talked with a great many influential
officers of the navy, and all are enthusiastic
over the subject of the establishment of a
shipyard here. I think without doubt such
a post will be established at Lake Washing
ton, probably upon the large island in that
lake. Capital sufficient to put the canal
through is ready for investment therein as
soon as the bill shall become a law. Every
thing looks .to a successful carrying out of
Seattle's long-cherishedjdea, and there can
now be no doubt that the ship cannal will
be built, that a navy yard will be establish
ed here, and that all the beneficial results
attendant upon those facts will accrue to
our city.
Speaking of the outlook for Wasco county
a Dalles paper says: The grass is short, but
has started thick, and sheep are doing finely.
Cattle and horses begin to pick up and will
do so rapidly, as the grass gets longer. The
fruit crop is promising better than at first
predicted after the excessive cold nights.
A large amount of grain is being put in on
spriDg plowed land:,. We do not hear of
a single lot of fall sowed wheat or rye that
has been seriously injured by the winter,
and we have received accounts from Alkali,
of your wish. May I ask also if you
are securing biblical temperance les
sons in the Sabbath schools, and tem
perance books and papers in the same?
The latter can be had without cost to
the W. C. T. U., if the officers of the
Sunday schools are favorable.
Scientific temperance instruction in
public schools and frequent articles
and items in the public press, are
methods of great importance as you
know. Public meetings, sermons by
pastors, prizes to the children for es
says, all these quiet educational meth
ods are doubtless pursed by you so far
as practicable.
Now, dear sisters, please tell me
what you are doing, and I shall learn
what methods have succeeded best,
and how to help others by your experience.
Believe me, with sincere affection,
yours always in christian work,

A False Marriage.
F. R. Hill, of Wilbur, in solemnizing a
marriage contract in the capacity of a notary
public, has certainly superceded his fver.
The statue says that any minister or priest
of any congregation or judicial officer is
empowered to perform the marriage ceremo
ny. As to where Mr. Hill can find any law
authorizing hiin to act iu a judicial capacity
is a matter that puzzles the brains of some
of our legal gentlemen. While not imputing
to Mr. Hill any improper motives, we can
see nothing binding iu his action, and the
only step out of this iiuandry into which he
has carelessly plunged this couple, will be
for them to try it again, and be properly
married by some person authorized to sol
emnize a marriage contract. Plaindealer.
