I Hun,inS Ashing Excursion,
It is good to get outside of the thronged
street .way fr ira brick and mortar, outside
of the rumbling of carriages, the roar of the
escap pipe, the scream of the steam whistle,
the bustle amlst ifoof the busiuess of the
furm , away from the heated atmosphere of
the Willamette valley into the mountains of
the McKenzie, whose lofty peaks stand out in
hold relief and whose tops seem to pierce the
Hue aiched heavens. After traveling two
day we ramped at a place called Pillar Rock,
or Cougar Gap. Here we are surrounded by
giga-.tic fnre.it trees whose shadows make it a
cxd retreat in the heat of the day, and whose
dense foliage fill the air with freshness and
fragrance. Here the rugged and sublime, the
beautiful in natural scenery, are magnificently
mingled in the surroundings of this noble river,
the McKenile, whose water flow on their ever
biting course through the mountain gorges,
and where the deer, the panther and the bear
still range, nnd where the speckled and red
side trout sport in the crystal waters. Back
up the mountains to the north are some per
pendicular piles of neks, from the top of which
can be seen the Three Sister, with their tall
peaks covered with eternal snow glistening in
the dazzling sunlight with the beams of the set
ting sun shining in golden light over their
lofty domes. At this immense rocky cuff Mis
Ida Parsons gave us some beautiful pencil
sketches of the mountain scenery. At this
point I thought of the words of the Psalmist,
The mountains ami the hills praise the Lord
and magnify him forevei. In his hands are
all the corners of thu earth and the strength of
the hills is his also. 0, Lord, how manifold
are thy works; in wisdom has thou made them
all" The next day we camped on Blue liver.
Here we were joined hf in r old friend Henry
Hill. He and our fisherm in, Edgar Parsons,
caught 123 trout in ont day. The next day
we orranlzed a sh t iu match, Miss Clara
Parsons cam off first best, having come within
one inch of the targit, distance 40 yards off
hand. At this place we found plenty of will
flowers, some resimb'in,' heliotrope, trating
arhutus and many other varieties. For the
benefit of ladies who wish t m ike this trip,
we would say provide yourselves with broad"
soled, loose-fitting shoes and short full dresses.
And now rea t-r, it ord to you and I hae
done. When you pant for the forest breez
and the snow cooling stream, re member the
same wild region, the same beautiful river, the
tail .uoiiutaiiis are time still, all inviting you
to tent their recuierating agencies, the trout
and deer are waiting your pleasure. VUit
them when the Summer heat mikes the valley
hot and dusty; give a month to a wilderness
life, ami you will return to your labors invig
orated in strength, liouyant in spirit ami a
Winer, healthier and better man. Anyone
wishing to treat themselves to fine blackberries
or honey, should call nu ) W Davis, on the
Hiuksnn farm. He also has tine vegetable;
he showed us a fine lot of turnips, one which
measured three fet and seven inches in cir
cumference. It will likely be on exhibition at
our County Fair.

ceives this "benelit" from Y S Turner iu
the Christian Advocate: "A certain relig

this county, claiming to baa ion verted Jew.
That be is a Jew i not aerinusly questioned;
but that he is true christian you will judg
for yourself after I stste some fart that
have been given me. He came to Pomeroy
some month since and passed himself off as

and claimed to he a Presbyterian, Soon
after be made the Colfax people, a visit, and
there was an ardent Baptist. He had occas

Campbellites in the ascendancy, be became a

Fast Time. We clip the following from
the Astorian: The extraordinary time
300 yards in 33 seconds made by Gen No
laud at the Firemen Tournament at Albany,
occasion considerable comment. The record
is a splendid one, and for an amateur rarely
equalled. The best time on record wa
made at Edinburgh, Scotland, on the 2d of
last January, by H. Hutchens, a profes
sional. He made 300 yard in 30 second.
In America the best 300 yard record i
credited to L. E- Myers, an amateur, who
made that distance at New York City, Oct
22, 1S8I, in 31 seconds. It won Id appear
from these figures that if nor fleet-limbed
city attorney were to practice a little, the
championship .night be transferred to the

Hors-W quote from J T Cochran' hop
circular, Aug 29th, of San Francisco, a fol
low: "Th condition of the bop trade is
characterized by masterly inactivity. Both deal'
r and grower are closely (canning all re
port of the growing cro in England and th
Eastern States, and business here remains at
a stand still. Grower who have not already
contracted their crops, decline any offsr under
30 cents, while at present 2.VS20 cents would
probably be all that could b obtained. W
cannot chanc our estimate of th growing
on in England or New York State, although
th weather ha been favorable to their devel
opment for th post few day. But it will be
remembered that our for ner estimates hav
been mail on the basis of good weather for the
remainder of the season. Should the weather
have proved unfavorable we should have been
obliged to reduce our figures. Receipt of new
crop have been light so far this season, and
some ct the sample that hav appeared on the
market are not fully matured, owing to the
fact that owners of large yards hav been
obliged to commence picking their cros too
early in order to get it through before the last
picl.ing become over rip The few balea of

land is now ready; it is handsomely bound
and printed, and contains upward of 500

from the press of Messrs II Hallett k Cn, of
Portland, Maine. As rapid biographer, Mr
Goodrich doub.tl ms stand without a rival in
America, and the volume ha the impress of
the broadest information and most careful at
tention on every page. 'This is th biography
that received tbe inestimable benefit of the
active co-operation and assistance of Mr Cleve

humble cradle to the present day, and pre

with irrelevant matter made up from th news
papers of the day. Thou who are w ie wil1

edition the largest, cheapest and best. The
steel-plate portraits of Cleveland and Hen
dricks were engraved for the volume and are
a standing rebuke to the caricatures which ap
pear in the .so-called "lives" vith big preten
sions. We understand that thi authentic,
standard edition is outselling all others, mors
than ten to one, and that its rgeat sre meet

more agents are wanted by the publishes; th
most liberal term are offered. It is a splendid
