which wo will re-publish for the lienefit
of our readers. Here it is:
"A party of threshers on North
prairie, about nine miles Mow the
city, wore thrown into a state of ex
citement lost Saturday afternoon by a
singular antic indulged in by the
"Beautiful Willamette," which stream
runs but a short distance from where
they were working. At this point of
tho river is a ripple showing shallow
water from bank to bank, and at this
stage of water can easily be forded by
a man on korselck. 1 lie river upon
this particular afternoon, up to about
two o'clock, scorned to be pursuing the
"even tenor of its way" toward the
sea, when all of a sudden, without any
unusual disturbance, the river stopped
running just aWe the ripples, the
water disappeared into the earth and

et Below tho baro ground tha river
still flowed on as tranquilly as ever.
To say that that the beholders were
'set back" by the circumstance is to
put it mildly. The workmen stopped
their labors to discuss the matter and
somo of them walked to the place
where the water had stopped its
onward "march to the sea." The
examination sremed to Bhow that
tho lied of the river above tho rapids
had broken through and that there
was a subterranean passage under the
rapids passing the water to tho river
below. This remarkable phenomona
lasted for about three hours, when the
river again resumed its natural con
dition and the water again bubbled
over the pebbly bottom of the rapids

A. II. Barnes of Reno, Nevada,
fichts off consumption by wearing a
silver tube which passes between tho
ribs to the lungs. In 1849 Mr. Barnes,
then living in Sycamore, Dekalb coun
tv. Illinois, was declared an incurable
consumptive. The lung was tapped
and he recovered. In 1803 lie was
again taken down by the disease, when
ho onco more resorted to tho tube and
bus worn it ever since. 1 here is a
duilv discharge of matter. Mr. Barnes
is a man of very regular and temperate
habits, does not use tobacco in any
form nor stimulants of any kind, hardly
ever uses any medicines, excepting
sometimes a little iron for the blood; is
always well when tho holo in his side
is open, somotimes feeling a heaviness
there, but has cot uso to that. This
caso is certainly worthy the attention
of medical meu. It seeem to give a
man a new lease of life even when ap
oarently as good as dead.
When Mr. Barnes conceived the
idea of tapping his lungs, all the physi
cians but ono scouted it as a thing that
would prove fatal. However, he per
suoded Dr. Woodman to perform the
operation. In 18C3 Mr. Barnes was
in Honey Lake valley, and was on the
brink of the grave. Now, again, the
resident physicians were opposed to the
idea of an incision, and after ro
peatsd appeals for an operation, which
was refused, Mr. Barnes borrowed a
lanca and cut open his side himself.
He then inserted a catheter, and draw
ing off nearly a quart of matter im
mediate relief was found. The cough
and expectoration stopped almost in
stantly, and Mr. Barnes was soon upon
his feet ogiin. Thus ho has prolonged
his life over thirty years. Reno
Hon. B. B. Brock way, residing in
Civil Bend, must have some terribly
malicious neighlwrs. Some time since
one of his steers was shot by one of
these miscreant, and this week, a horse
came home shot into the body the tall
havinc cone through into his stomach;
this, however, was not enough for the
hmiallv inclined hound in human
shape, but he needs must place a board
two inches wide in the horses mouth,
tying it ly means of a rope over his
head, in ord to prevent the poor
wounded rute from eating or drink
ing. The consequence was he poor
animal died shortly after thia treat
The DeitiDT of i Biilioi People.
Among one million human beings,
there are at birth on an averago 512,
000 boys and 488,000 girls. Betwsen
the time of birth and the age of 5,
more than one-fourth, or 262,000 chil
dren die, nearly 142,000 boys and 120,
000 girls, leaving 370,000 boys and'
368,000 girls, the greater mortality of
the boys reducing them thus to nearly
equal numbers. The next five years
are mora favorable, and so is the period'
from 10 to 15, during which the mor
tality is the least, but especially for
boys: from i5 to 20 the mortality ir
greater again, and still greater from 20
to 25, so that at that time 104,000"
will have died, leaving 634,000 to 25;
so that at that time 104,000 .will have'
died, leaving 634,000 to enter their
26th year. At the end of 35 years
100.000 women will have married,'
while 62,000 persons will have died, of
whom nearly half will die from con
sumption, leaving 572,000. The next
ten years will reduce the numlef by
70,000 deatlu, leaving 202,000 at the-
age of 45. Now each succeeding ten
years will be more fatal and the num
ber shrink so rapidly that during the
30 years they will die at an increasing
ratio of anavoragoof 10,900 per year,
so that at 75 years of age 341,000 will
have died, and only 161,000 will be
left: the death rate per year still iov
creases from 75 to 85, is now about 12,- '
000 per year, so that during the decade
122,000 will die, and 39,000 left to at
tain 85 years of age; now the death
rate increases still more, but as there
are less people left to die, the absolute
number of deaths grow less than 4,-
000 per year, so that 37,000 will die in
the next decade, and only 2,000 will
reach the age of 95; of these 1,750
will die before the age of 100; of these
50 halt will die the first year over 100
leaving 150 to attain. 101 years;- again
half of this numbor the next year, or
75 at 102, and so on, 37 at 103, 18 at
104, 9 at 105, 4 at 106, 2 at 107,
and 1 at 108. This single surviving
individual, among one million human
being dying around and beforo him,
will then in his turn at last also bid
earth farewell, to maki4 room for other
generations as his contemporaries have
wisely and more promptly done befort
him. For many years he was only in
the way, and perhaps life has been s
burden to himself.
A wicked story is told by the Phila
delphia Record about a joke which
wag in the ' Philadelphia- postofflce
ployed upon Mr. J. A. JIubbell and
tho Republican committee. Thinking
that the political assessment circular
afforded means of amusement, he for
warded to Washington the names of
tho twelyn cats kept in the Philadelphia
office,' with a complaint that while
other employes had been assessed they
had escaped. So when a few days later
letters came, a sample one whto was
addressed to "Miss Sallie Binn, Pot--office,
Philadelphia Peno.," the joke
was almost complete. ' The consumma
tion came when the senior clerk in the
office had a black and white tabby
placed on the (.tamping table, and reaJ
to her the circular of the CongressionaS
Committee, intimating that 2 percent-
was about a fair contribution Iron
