The Benton County History.
This valuable work, the compilation of
-which was begun something over a year ago,
as now on our table, illustrated, copyrighted
and published by D. D. Fagau, Esq. The
work is well worthy of the perus.il of every
.'citiz-ln of our country, containing as it does
a complete history of the county, including
its geology, topography, soil and produc
tions, together with the early history of the
'""Pacific coast, compiled from the most au--ttartic
source; a full political history, com
prising a tabular statement of officers of the
-County since its formation; incidents of pio
neer life and biographical sketches of early
.and prominent citizens; criminal history;
t.M ahnwin? earlv assessments from 1850
to 1884, .and also a table showing the re
ceipts and disbursements from 1851 to 1884;
population from 1S60 and every ten years
thereafter; and also containing the history
of the towns, cities, churches, schools, se
cret societies, etc. , and many other inter
estiiig sketcnes too numerous to mention.
The illustrations, of wiiich there are thirty
five in number, consisting of public and pri
vate buildings, farm and farm residences,
.are from the pen of J. T. Pickett, are artis
tic in execution and wojld adorn the pages
of any work. The biography of nearly 200
of our prominent citizens adorns the work.
The history of itself, so far as we are able to
judge, is reliable and correct as to date and
events, and is written in J. P. Munro J)ras
er's hanmest stvle. Mr. Fa;an informs us
that about 800 copies have been subscribed
for. and that he is meeting with success in
the delivery of the same.
Snooting Affray at Wells.
A Vootin? affrav occurred at Wells Sta
tion nn the West Side railroad a few miles
north of Corvallis on last Monday evening,
in which George Snell shot John Stew ard,
Loth of whom were lads of only about 14
years of age. The pistol used in the shoot
ing was a 4 4-caliber Bull Dog; the ball en
tered the right cheek of the unfortunate lad
"Jthdit is thought will prove fatal, though at
jast accounts he was still alive. The shoot
ing is clouded in mystery, as no quarrel or
fend was ever known to exist between the
parties, and it is hoped was accidental.
Both of the lads are of highly respected
families of that vicinitv. A warrant for
the arrest of young Snell was placed in the
hands of an officer on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr F. A. Horniutr. livtna about 14 west
of Corvallis, brought to town last Wednes
day some of his garden products which for
aize;- We consider somewhat extraordinary.
Two specimens of beet, or mangel wurtzel,
weighed respectively 52 and 58 lbs., and one
head of cabbage 44J lbs. Some time ago
the Portland Standard boasted ot a beet
weiirhm?40 lbs., and challenged auyone to
beat it. Mr. Horning is several pounds
ahead, and will wear the belt until some
larger productions are reported. These spec
imens will likelv be shipped to the State
Board of Immigration rooms.
A Lively Runaway.
TVesdav forenoon as Mr. Wm. Irwin was
driving into town and just approaching the
track by ithe Corvallis foundry, the team be
earne frightened at the engine on the turn
table, and wheeling at right angles, started
bp the street towards the depot, throwing
Mr. Irwin, who was the only occupant of
the hack, to the ground. The team ran on
ly a few rods farther when they smashed a
wheel aud tore loose from the hack, and
left it in a badly demoralized condition.
Mr. Irwin was considerably bruised but not

The printing press has made presidents,
killed poets, furnished bustles for beauties,
and furnished genius with the sandpaper of
criticism. It has made worlds get up to re
call every morning; given the pulpit lung

priee of a bushel -of wheat, and ' made the
country postoffioe the ijlimmeriiiil goal of
rural seribe. It has curtailed the power of
kings, embellished ,th pantry shelves and
busted rings; it has converted banker into
paupers, made sawyer of college president;
it ha educated the homeless, and robbed
the philosopher of his reason. It smiles
and kicks, cries and dies, but it can't be run

An Albany paper perpetrate the follow-
inff: "Wallace Baldwin, of Corvallis, was
roused from hi sleep on, Monday nhzht,-12ch
inst., by a lowl rap on the oor. Hastily
donning hi, pant he went to the door and
amaait it. . when a laree Chinook salmon
held up its tail and Wallace read the follow
ing notice which was .engra veil on brass aqd
attached to the nsb a uaud.l extremity by
swivel: 'I am tbe first salmon that scaled
the hah ladder at Oregon City. .1 made- the
riffle by taking my tail in. .my , mouth - and
rolling over. I led the attack on the stag
in Southern Oregon when it was crossing the
Umpqua. I am now on roy way to Alaska
to interview Judge Dawne and notify him
that h is suspended. T shall immediately
- return to Salem and be present at the elec
tion of a senator. I know who is going to
be elected and if' you will give me a chaw of
tobacco I will tell youl' Wallace iuadvsr
tantly rammed hi band into his breeches
pocket and while polling away at the weed
the salmon cocked hi eye, flapped his tail
and was off like a rocket. Wallace says
'the salmon left in the direction of Mary's
river. It has probably gone to Mary Peak
to take it bearing for Alaska. Mr. Bald
win was so dumbfounded that he. cannot
give an exact description of tbe salmon. He
i says, howevM, it looked very fishy.' "
true as regards the bankers and brokers of
Portland I do not propose to ditcuss. I
write to say that as regards all wheat ship
ped to San Francisco, via Yaquina, by tbe
Oregon Pacific from Corvallis, the following
arrangements has been made with one of
the chief Warehouses in connection with
that city. First On. all wheat delivered
there by the steamer Yaquina no landing
charges are mad. Second Wheat can be
Stared there until January 1, 1886, for 50c
par ton, and until January 1, 1886, at 72c
per t,,n. Third On all wheat so stored an
advance will be made to the owner, if he
desire it, up to 920 per ton equal to 60c
per bushtd at the rate of 6 per ceut per
annum. Fourth Insurance on grain be
tween Yaquina and Sau Francisco can be
effected to-day at tbe rate of 40c per 9100,
with prospects of a reduction to a still lower
figure at an early day. It will thus be ap- I
parent to every farmer and business man in j
Oregon that "robber rates need not be
feared, either in transportation, handling,
storing or selling grain entrusted to this
route, which cairien it to the highest mar
ket on the Pacific coast. '

A week ago yesterday a portion of tbe
people of Spriugtield precinct were treatd
to a young cyclone. Tbe first indication
was a funnel-shaped cloud pawing through
the ky rapidly. The wind began io blow
furiously, and fast commenced its work at
Geo. Ebbert'a place, blowing two or three
different fences several yards. At Mr. J.
H. Goodman' place the wind Mowed a
plank fence away and then struck a work
shop and took it up iu the air and carried it
at least fifty feet aud broke the plank, in tbe
same into splinters.. It next struck a flock
of sheep and carried them in the air for
fifteen yard, but did not kill any of thtm.
It is the general opinion that the storm was
of a ey clonic nature. Nothing of the' same
kind Was ever seen in Lane county hereto
fore. Can it be possible that Oregon will be
subject to Eastern cyclones in time? Guard.
