San Diego on lb 13th of this month, ud

reported that Freino has been selected m the
place to winter the atock and animal.
Stockton and Sao Jos aie also being taken
into consideration by tbe circus. During
the winter ail tbe horses and Mock are to be
turned out on a range, and large sheds will
be built for bousing tbe menagerie. As
there are 400 bead of horses, besides a large
number of animals, to be cured for, tbe ooat
of maintaining winter quarters is a large
item. Tbe last large show that wintered ou the
Coast was Montgomery Queen's. Sell's cir
ca started tbe present season in Kentucky
in April, and bare in tbe pant seven months
been over tbe entire Northwest, including
British Columbia. In tbe kike peninsulars

A Fin i SiiuwrNa. Statesman. S. A.
Clarke yesterday finished gathering and dry
iug the product of hid 25-acre fruit farm
south of Salem, and bus reason to be well
satisfied wiih the result having dried and
packed fifty thousand pouuds of the finest
prunes that will touch tbe market from any
section this year. The season for caring for
fruit hits been four or five weeks louger than
usual, tbe peach plums ripening early in
July, instead of tbe firat of August as is com
mou, while his latest gathering heretofore
was September 27th. Tims the early varie
ties matured earlier and tbe later one were
longer in ripeuing. His French prunes, tbe
"Petite" were especially tine and prolific,
two acres of young trees producing five
thousand pounds. A visit U Mr. Clarke's
farm, eveu at this time when the trees have
been shaken and torn in this season's exper
ience, is convincing to the moat skeptical
of tbe possibilities of Oiegon iu the fruit
Hue. It is located upon a red, clay hill, so
high as to command one of the most extend
ed and delightful views the eye could wish
to behold, reaching across the bills and val
leys of Polk county, down the sweep of tbe
Willamette river for miles, east ward iu un
interrupted landacnpe all over Marion coun
ty, and revealing in the upper story of the
soene all tbe suowoap of tbe Cascade range
in Oregon snd Washington. On the top ol
this hill was grown all fruits besides the
thousands ol bushels thitt were plucked and
thrown away early in tbe season to give tbe
remaiuder s cbauoe.

last uijht amidst grvut enthusiasm, and
organized a Cleveland and Thurman railroad

ing speeches. The Hons, Guiibel Schmnck,
James H. Wlllard and F. Piukbart addisised
a Urge gathering at Ferdinand, where only
one Republican lives, and they captured him

He was compelled to bring bi wheat to
Prineville to have it ground, aud saya un

Jones, United States engineer, who has
charge of the revetment to be built on the
east bank of th Willamette, a short distance
above Corvallis, in order to prevent the river
from cutting a new channel and leaving that
town inland, will commence work on the job
as soon as possible, probably iu a week or
two, says the Oregonian. The sum of $14000
hai been appropriated for the work. The
revetmeut will be about 6000 feet in length.
The bank will be sloped by a hydraulic hose
attached to a steam pump and the slope then
covered with a brush mattress, through
which willows will be planted. Willows will
also be planted along the crest of th slope
and it is expected tbut this will effectually
prevent tbe river from making any more en
croachments there. Th people of Corvallis
will b pleased to see tb work completed.
