An Indian Affray.
From a gentleman, from Cottage Grove we
leurn that a serious and twr!i -t..i .mi;.,,,
and stabbing affray occurred at that place be-
ieen,iwo minims Friday of last week. It
appear there are about four families of In
dians camping ou t!io bank of the Coast
rork at that place, the heads of two ol the
families Wing Polk Scott and Jim Kirk,
the latter lieing the Indian that was con
victid nud sentenced to the penitentiary for
five years iu 1SS2 for the murder of Indian
Jack Kerns at Bonnett's hop yard in this
county. Kirk, who is a powerful man, be
gan to abuse Scott who is light and weakly,
by pounding him on the ground, when Heott
got a cane and bit Kirk on the bend Kirk
then went to auother camp, procured a
bntch. r knife, returned und inflicted a fear
ful wound ou Scott's person by stabbing him
in the abdomen. Scott bad a large jack
j knife and fought back cutting Kirk'l left
I wrist very liadly. splitting one of his cheeks
iroiu ear to mouth, mid inflicting live ugly
wounds iu his back. Our iuformant thought
the wounds received by Scott would prove
fatal and that Kirk would recover. As
usual whiskey, the Me noir of the noble red
man wax the cause ol the trouble.
Latkh Since writing tho above we learn
that Kirk was arrested for an assault with a
deadly weapon with intent to kill. Judge
Hasliliurne went to Cottage Grove Wednes
day to represent the defendant who waived
examination was bound over to await the
action of the Grand Jury in the sum of
$500 aud iu default of ball was committed to
the county jail. We are informed that
Scott will probably recover.

Springfield Mill Property
The Springfield Mill Company composed
of B. J. IVngra, W. B. Peugra and Almou
Wheeler, hat made several transfers of the

interest iu sawmill and Spring
field town property; combination $25,000.
Almon Wheeler aud B, J. Pengra to W.

The other day one of our professors ad
vanced the theory that measles have a ten
dency to cause their victims to write poetry.
There was much grave doubt on this sub
ject. The following poem will demonstrate
this fact beyond question. It is rather ten
der and we have some hesitation in submit
ting it to the publio. But we will offer for
him the apology that it is nearly Spring, and
"In the Spring A young man's fancy lightly
turns to thoughts of love:"
I have the measles pretty had,
But theu I won't complain.
For what a wealth of kindness
And sympathy I gain.
With trembling lip and tearful eye,
She asks for me each day;
It's fun to be afflicted,
When I'm treated iu this way.
And when my forehead throbs with pain,
I dieam of her winsome smiles;
Of a soft white hand on my forehead lain,
And think Oh! happy Milesl
I rather guessed she liked me,
But then I'd nevsr known
The depth of her affection,
If the, measles had let me alone. .
And so I thank kind fate,
Nor will my lot repine;
Since to it I owe the the happiness
Of knowing she is mine,

free heart. I am paiufully aware that you
do not know of the amoruuthine influence
that you wield over my whole being. Be
yond all your charms I consider your water
willow figure to be the most enchanting. I
was charmed by the dimpled knuckles of
your taper digits. Your slender phalanges
encased in fairy rubber ferryboats. Your
mild sky-blue eyes, situated in twe deep
caverns, surrounded by hedges of darkly
curling lashes. By your auburn bair which

I can see it now that prominent red emi

broad dimensions of your lofty forehead, and
by the regularity of your lofty forehead and
canine teeth. I have caught my breath in
terrified amazement when you opened the
mighty aperture in the lower part of yonr
face into a griu. I wus enchanted as I be
held your temporal aud niasseter muscles

tongue or pen could do justice to the hawk

It is neither Roman or Grecian, in fact, I do

It first rises into prominence at the base of
the brow, between the two eyelike caverns;
as it descends it rapidly grows more promi

in a high bluff above the mouth-like aperture.

ardent admirer I have pictured yon, my fair
ideal. Of course, I used hyperbole but that

condition. Trusting yon fully realize the
