The Jlrilran Horror.
Detail of tlie Morelos railway casu
alty in Mexico are at hand in correa
poiuli'iiee. A griitloinaii who escaped
from the wreck of the first cur Raid to
tho correspondent: Dante's descrip
tion of hell conveys hut a faint idea of
tho horrors I witnewed. The thunder
peals seemed to nm like the voice of an
inexorable fate. The fortunes of that
doomed mans of human Wings were
mndo so dixtinct, firat flames of the al
cohol,'and afterwards hy the flashes of
lightning, that iny soul sickened. I
managed to clamher up tho sides of the
ravines, and could only pray: "Christ
pity them;" then I fainted. No guard
had been stationed at tho bridge, nor
even had a lamp been placed there; the
heavy freshet had brought down the
debris which had pressed against the
two piers and carried them ofi"; the
headlight of tho engine shone only up
on tho rails, which reinainmt, and
tho engineer being unable to Ree that
these steel threads were unsupported,
the train instantly plunged into the
abyss, precipitating its human freight
into tho foaming water. The ravino
being narrow, the cars were piled on
each other, crushing and mashing all;
then the eighty burrels of alcohol rolled
out, many breaking open ns they fell;
next the lime poured over the victims,
and finally camo an additional horror.
As tho rear engine was dragged into
the ravine its livejcoals fired the alco
hol, and in a few seconds this agoniz
ing mass of humanity was enveloped in
flumes. Imngine their BiiHeriiigs, in a
dreary place, far from any human lia'i
itution, and as the storm had prostrated
tho telegraph wires there were no
means of communication with city or
town; therefore the victims remained
Hcveial hours without help.

Tho steamer on Klamath lake has
been christened Gen. Howard. The
Gen. Howard cost about 8',000. It is
sixty-eight feet long, twelvo feet beam
and draws about five f-et of water; it
is built in regular tug style, and would
ride the seas of tho Pacific with safety;
tho enginu is of thirty-horse power, and
tho boat will make twelvo miles an
hour with ease. Joe Teach has com
mand, and John Uurnett is pilot The
steamer wns launched on Tuesday, and
Wednesday mndo her trip to the mouth
of Wood river, thirty miles in three
hours. ' This is within four miles of the
agency. At pnsent the entrance to
Wood river is closed by a narrow bar,
but a channel will be cut through
and the stream made navigable to with
in a mile of the fort Tho steamer
will make regulur trips between Link
villeand the reservation, carrying paf-sen-
gers for tho agency and the fort. The
scenery along the picturesque mountain
shores is described as grandly beautiful;
and pleasure parties from various por
tions of tho county, and from Jackson
and Siskiyou counties will bo visiting
Link villa through the summer for
steamboat excursions--a new feature
of life in the interior of southern Ore

persons on his list. Tlie increase over
the census of 1880 amounts to 30 i per

The records show that during the

there were thirteen persons arrested

After investigation the O. Ii fc N.
Co. have made an estimate of the
amount of wheat they are liltcly
to move this fall from the entire coun

up is 100,000 tons for the entire crop,
of which 75,000 tons will bo exported.
This shows 30 or 40 per cent more
than Inst year. A healthy increase.

A water spout or cloud-burst was
seen near Lakeview Tuesday, July 26,
that attracted tho attention of the peo
plo of the valley for some time. About
half an hour after this ono had passed
away a second was seen much nearer
town. The first was a short distance
west of tho summit mills and perhaps
ten or fifteen miles from town. Ap
parently a large volume of water poured
from tho clouds in an unbroken stream
for nearly thirty minutes after discov
ered. A Btorm cloud was gathering in
the west and a thunder shower porten
ded. The second was seen only a mile
or two north of town and apparently
moving toward it. Tarties in town
visited the sceno of the latter soon after
tho clouds had cleared away and din
covered that it had uncapped an unoc
cupied dwelling house, demolished con
siderable fence and tore up the ground
generally. Those who visited tho
track of this cloud-burst concluded that
it must have been a whirlwind,

The Corvallis Gazette 'of last week
tells the following snake story: A rat
tlesnake was killed on John Wyatt's
farm, two miles west of Corvallis, a
few days ago, by a boy of eight .and a
girl of 4 years, under tho following
circumstances: The little boy and
girl first discovered it between tho
house and a shop near by. Tho boy
ran to get the axa while tho little girl
remained to keep watch ,over their
venomous discovery. While tho boy
was gone the snake started to make its
exit, and crawled under the edge of
the shop, and when he returned the
little girl had followed it under the
building and was about a foot from it
when the boy struck it with the axe,
cutting it in pieces. The only way
that Mr. Wyatt accounts for neithor of
tho children being bittsn was that
during all this time the small terrier
dog was also in pursuit and kept run-,
ning up and back and constantly bark
ing at the reptile, which probably at
tracted more of its attention than did
the children. The anakc had upon it
seven tattles, and was two feet and
eight inches long. So far as is known,
this is the first of these unwelcome
visitors to this part of Denton county.
The principal New York sugar re
finers have agreed to restrict the pro
duction of refJned sucar to 20,000,000
pounds a week, or one-third less than
the weekly amount heretofore pro
duced. The object of the movement,
of course, is to advance the price, and
it is another example of the prevailing
tendency of monopolists arbitrarily to
use their opportunities whenever it
serves their wishes or interests to do so.
Persons who believe that good luck
never goes with the numlier 13 should
i no longer adhere inflexibly to the su
perstition, especially in the matter of
horseraces. It is recalled that last
year the winner of the Grand Prix at
LonghsDips Lore that number, and
that Ffiili:iH'a nlace on the list this vear
waa num'x-r 13, too. One would hardly
plead that two exceptions in success
ion are required to prove a rule.
