The Portland Mercury has been writ
ing up Prof Millard, the muslo teacher
who dad classes at Halsey and one or
two other places in this part of the
valley, ana who sang at a social in Al
bany while endeavoring to get up a
class here. It characterises him as a
bilk and a rogue. We don't know
anything about it; but it certainly is
not a good idea to rush after strangers
whose records are not known. New
comers who are "fresh" and push
themselves forward to the head of
society at a Jump should also be
spotted in this western country.
Prof. Millard operated to Eugene
and Lane county for several weeks a
few months ago.

A Narrow Escape.
Dally Guard, Hay 7.
Commissioners Parker and Hyland
who made a trip to the Coyote bridge
yesterday had a short butexcltlngruu-
awav. Jost after driving on the ru
ety bridge, which is about three-fourths
of a mile long, one of the horses stepped
on a tilunk and his foot went down.
This raised the other end so as to trip
the other horse and both commenced
kicking. The yoke strap broke letting
the tongue down and this way the
team ran over a hundred yards with
Hvlund still In the wagon. Mr. Park
er then came up and in trying to quiet
them alter tney naa stontieu one norse
reared and fell oft' the side of the bridge
pulling the other ono on top. This
necessitated the gentlemen getting off
Into the mud two feet deep to unhitch
the horses and lead theniHeveral rods to

Cieo. A. Dorrln.
We clip the following article from
the Cottage Grove Lender-Echo, hide
dent republican:
Mr. Geo. A. Dorris Is a very success
ful lawyer of the Eugene bar and
would mako an able and judicious
prosecuting attorney. By indus
try, energy ami careful attention to
the interests of his clients he has built
up a tine law business. His crsohul
Interests have for a great many years
licen closely ldentilled with the js-ople
that ho has a tine conception of their
necessities and desires. The cilice of
prosecuting attorney is of great impor
tance and a great many people fail In a
wise and proiwr conception of tho In
terests therein involved. It Is not
sulllclent that a man be a well read
lawyer for prosecuting attorney he
should have some natural ability, prac
tical Ideas and a tinge oi ordi
nary common sense to bo successful.
A posecuting attorney should be. able
to make Ills olllelal career so successful
as to tiecome positive and aggressive
toward tho rulllan und scoundrel at
the same time to lie able to shield and
protect Innocence. An attorney who
is known to tie successful posscscs a
power to deter man v evil nconle from
committing outrages frequently; a suc
cessful prosecuting attorney who loses
out, lew cast's is a iiunnc iicnc tuctor to
tho people of his district and can save
them much cost and aniiovance.
Should the iH'oplo elect Geo. A. Dorris
prosecuting attorney, wo feel assured
that his success will lie brilliant.

A wild Eastern Oregon poet breaks out

He's broken of Ills midnight rest,
