David M. Sannders, a notorious rough
the son of Laliau and Eliza Saunders who
live near Monroe, and who have contributed
to keep that neighborhood in an uproar for
several years past, the son on last Saturday
night sometime between midnight and three
o'clock next morning broke into the store of
Adam Wilhelm in Monroe, making the en
trance by taking out a pan of glass. lie
burglaiized the store, taking therefrom sev
enteen pocket knives, about eight pounds of
tobacco, one dozen fish lines, one pipe and
one razor. He was arrested and taken be
fore Justice Shannon of that precinct last
Mouday and was bouud over to await the
pleasure of the gi:.nd jury. It is likely that
the state penitentiary will receive its proper
visitor after the next session of court. It
wonld be a lasting benefit for that commu
nity and especially for the lax-payers of
of Benton county if the old man, and the
old woman and the son could all be sent to
the penitentiary for their natural lives, for
the reason that they seem to be getting in
to petty disturbances all the time, which
makes a great deal of cost and expense to
our county tax-payers, besides disturbing
the quietude of things about Monroe.
severely Sprained Ankle.
On last Sunday O R Additon had his firey
team hitched up and invited a few of the
boys to a drive, among whom was Jake
Weber. When about four miles from
town the horses began "cutting up" and
the use of the whip by the driv
er only made matters worse, as they began
kicking and trying to run away. The in
vited guests began jumpiug out of the buggy
and as Mr. Weber jumped he sprained his
ankle very severely. He was brought back
to town as soon as possible and medical aid
notified. Drs. Lee, assisted by a number
of our citizens, labored for over two hours
in trying to get the bones of the foot back
in proper shape, but without success. The
astragalus, or upper bone of the foot, is yet
dislocated and physicians say it never will
go back in position. Mr. W. is a young
merchant in our city and his sad misfortune
was learned with deep regret. His perma
nent recovery is hoped for, but it is feared
the worst has not been reached.
Fruit Kaisers Attention.
The Economy fruit drier at Woodcock
h Baldwin's, Corvallis, Or., utilizes the heat
on a common cooking stove, which enables
the drier to work successfully during the
time when meals are being prepared for the
family on the same stove, thus enabling the
operator tc dry rapidly and with no ex
pense. It will dry four or five bushels ol
apples per day and other fruits and vegeta
bles in proportion. Every family should
have one in order to save without expense
the fruit which goes to waste, thus making
a clear gain of all dried. The price is a
mere nothing aud within the reach of all.

Death is always an unwelcome visitor,
whether it claims for its prey the suckling
babe or the hoary headed veteran, but prob
ably the saddest death that ever occurred in
our city happened last Monday. Mrs. M.
H. Drummond, of Davisville, California, has
been visiting friends and relatives in our
city for the past three months. Her mother
Mrs. Calloway, who resides about seven
miles north of here, was reported danger
ously ill on last Monday, and Mrs. Drum
mond desirous of visiting the bed-side of the
sick, arranged with Willie Taylor to be
driven to her mother's residence. The hack
started about half past 2 o'clock, containing
Willie Taylor as driver, Mrs. Drummond
and her seven months old babe. In the out
skirts of town the firy team took fright at a
hand car en the west side railroad track and
commenced running away. Willie held to
the lines, but the frightened horses could
not be checked, and on turning a corner near
the residence of Judge McFadden, the hack
was turned over and the three unfortunates
thrown violently to the ground. Men and
women soon ran to their assistance, but 'im
agine their horror when they discovered that
Mrs. Drummend's neck had been broken,
causing instant death. Mr. Taylor received
a few slight bruises, but the little innocent
babe miraculously escaped without the
slightest injury. The sad news was imme
diately telegraphed to her husband in Davis
ville, California, who arrived here this
Thus another of earth's brightest satelites
has been called across that horrible bridge
that spans the chasm between time and
eternity. Death has claime I one of the
favored few, and the entire com . unity is
left to mourn her untimely demise. Mrs.
Drummond was 22 years o'd, and the daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Calloway, of
this county. She was married to Mr. Drum
mond a year ago last M itch, and has resided
in California ever since, up to the time of
coming here on a visit nearly three months
ago. She leaves a husband and babe, an
aged father and mother and a number of
brothers and sisters, who have the heart-felt
sympathy of the entire community in this
their sad bereavement.
Notice is hereby given that there are
funds in the treasury to pay all Benton

Closing out Sale.
The closing out sale at C. H. Whitney's
is attracting many buyers who are attracted
by the very low prices actual cost for
goods. This is a genuine closing out sale
and as the stock is a well selected one and
tirst-class, the people should not fail to im
prove the opportunity.
The United Press.
The Associated Press monopoly has seen
its best days says an exchange. Before long
daily papers in Oregon that have been un
able to get the latest dispatches, will be
filled with the latest and most reliable news
The United Press, a corporation that fur
nishes all the latest dispatches is coming
this way, and before long here in Oregon
even the weekly papers can get the latest
news from all parts of the world just before
going to press. It is a good thing for the
conn t ry and very few Oregon people at least
will have any sorrow for a monopoly that
has compelled them to subscribe for a cer
tain paper in order to get the news. Jour
nalists will stand on their own merits here
after in getting subscribers, for which,
let every honest citizen feel thankful.
Hurrah for the United Fress.

State Teachers Association.
The association of teachers convened at
Astoria adjourned last Friday night. The
attendance was something over two hun
dred teachers throughout. From Benton
county we saw Prof. Joseph J'.mcry of the
Agricultural college, Pres. G. M. Miller, H.
Sheak. J. M. Rankin and Miss Ella Dick
man, of Philomath col'ege. Profs. Emery
and Rankin lectured before the institute
and were well received. Prof. Emery has
taught in Oregon about eighteen years and
stands among the leading educators of Ore
gon. Pres. Miller, recently from the east,
is a polished scholar and a practical man,
and spairs no pains in making points for
the excellent school which he represents.
We were also pleased to see Miss Nettie
Spenfer formerly of Cirvallis, but later of
East Portland. Miss Spencer received her
honors from the Agricultural college and
receives as fine a salary fo- her services in
the East Portland school as can be allowed
The discussions of the association were
very interesting and instructive. The State
Superintendent is very fortunate in secur
ing the aid, on such occasions, of all the
leading educators. Contact with such gi
gantic minds as were assembled at Astoria
is inspiring and finally conducive of superior
The excursion to Ilwaco was a success.
Of course, some were careless and uncon
cerned while riding over the rough waters,
but felt better when they had thrown up
their dinners to feed the hungry fishes of
the mighty deep. Good instrumental and
vocal music was afforded during the trip.
Numerous points of interest were visited.
On our return to Astoria Prof. Emery on
invitation delivered a highly eloquent yet
extemperaneous address before the excur
sionists. On Friday night the association
closed with a grand entertainment in which
money was raised to defray the expenses of
the institute. On Saturday morning every
body returned home rejoicing. State Supt.
McElroy has successfully wound to a close
his third State Teachers' Association.
An Iowan's Views.
Speaking of our state, the editor of the
Muscatine Daily Journal, says:
Well, what of the country as a whole ?
Candidly, in many things it vastly sur
passes Iowa, For whett raising, portions of
Oregon are not to be excelled by any other
part of the world. In fruits, they also ex
cel Iowa. The climate, too, it must be ad
mitted, is more desirable, though in por
tions of Oregon frequent rains aud excessive
moisture in the air have caused it t o be
called "the land of the web-footed." In
fact, the moisture is a little too much, as
we should judge from the frequent moss
covered roofs. Cold and severe heat, how
ever, are unknown. But what are the
drawbacks? The chief of these is remote
ness from the princpal marts of the world.
However great the productions of the soil
the surplus, after home wants are supplied,
cannot be disposed of to advantage, It is
estimated that at the lowest possible rates
at which railways can can y freights, it will
cost $15 to bring the average steer from
Oregon to a competing point with the Iowa
steer. The same cost at tends transporting
If the water route is resorted to, it is by
way of Cap: Horn, making distance of
19, 000 miles and a voyage of eight to ten
months. This one drawback therefore, is
quite serious, if none other can be named,
aud we must confess it is the only great
one we could discern. On the whole, the
Pacific coast is a grand country, where peo
ple can live comfortably and pleasantly on
the finest products of any soil. But we
Ioawans cannot forget our own native or
S. A. Cravath, editor of the Grinuell
(Iowa) Herald, writes as follows in his pa
per concerning the Willamette valley:
"The trip down the west side of the Wil-
! lamette brought a repetition of the scenes
and receptions on the other side. The
memory gropes helplessly amid such a suc
cession of ovations for saliaut points. There
remain with it the picture of a delightful
valley, music, flowers, fruits, cordial greet
ings. It was not the fault of the dwellers
in the "Garden of Oregon," if the Iowa edi
tors were not made to believe that for three
days they were in the vale where Ceres and

Board of Immigration.
The Portland 7'elegram says that the
board of immigration of Benton county has
just caused to be compiled and published a
quantity of valuable information concerning
that section of the state. This description
is a neatly printed pamphlet of eight pages.
It contains everything that can be of inter
est or service to anyone wishing to move to
that county, with a vie w of permanent res
idence. It treats of churches and societies,
manufacturing interests, railroadsand trans
portation lines, soil, climate, rainfall, grain,
grasses and fruits, sheep, cattle, hogs and
horses, dairying, price of lands, public
schools and school children, towns, fisheries,
etc. The officers of the Benton county
board of immigration are B. W. Wilson,
president; F. M. Johnson, secretary; B. R.
Job, treasurer;T. J. Buford, agent. A large
number of these phamplets have been sent
to the rooms of the state beard in this city
for gratuitous distribution.
Mr. E. W. Allen, who is engaged in col
lecting exhibits for fitting up a car for the
east and also for replenishing our exhibits at
New Orleans, will be in the city the first of
next week. He wants several samples of
grain from Benton county and he hopes our
farmers will bring in samples of the different
varieties of grain in the straw, the tallest
that can be had, cut to the ground as close
as possible. Samples may be left at Wag

Those parties who have threatened to sur
prise this office by bringing wood to pay
their subscription to the Gazette will do so
at once, or forever cease their threats, as it
is desirous to get wood cut and put in the
shed before harvest, and because parties who
so carelessly threaten to deliver wood after
harvest are always prevented from filling
their engagements by the early rains and
their fall work. Another very important
thing for those whp deliver wood is to come
to the office before unloading the same and
learn where it should be unloaded, and after
it is nicely corded, come again to the office
and see that they are credited on the books
for the value of the wood. There is a cor
