by letter, as some are wont to believe, you can
attribute mistakes to this fact. Following
upon this, we please to inform all that we

was this morning aflirmed in the supreme
court, the opinion being delivered by Lord,
C. J. This is a case ot some interest, wbicu
was taken to the supreme court upon appeal
from Lane county. At tho November, lssii,
term of tho circuit court of Lane county,
W.S. Johns and one John Doe were indicted
by th grand jury for burglarizing the county
treasurer's ollice. They were tried, found
guilty and sentenced to u term of years iu
the penitentiary. Tho defendant, Johns,
appealed ou the ground that the indictment
does not allege that at tho time of breaking

kept therein. It is held by the court Unit m
an indictment for burglary, a declaration
that the defendant, having brokt-u into and
entered a building, tho same being n room
iu winch the personal property of sunt
county and statu was kept, did there and

Hkavx Los. The heaviest individual loan
in sheep during tho past winter that ho come
to onr knowledge falls on Mr. Geo. II.
Thurston. He was rauging his nooks in the
Silver lake region, Lake oounty, aid wn
owuer of aliout 7,000 head of stock sheep.
Out of that umntter h has bnt 3,000 left,
6,000 having died. The sheep were com
pelled to range for a living, as no bar or
other feed was provided for them, and the
range on which they were herded was nut
good. But it is believed that the cause of mi
many dying was jhe result ot gross erele
ness on the part of those who had direul
cbargo of the Hocks. It is indeed quite
evitlent that they were either greatly neglect,
ed or very improperly handled. The winter
was quite as never here as at Silver lake,
and we know of several flocks that wintered
here on short range without prepared feed
with a loss not exceeding 25 per cent.
