Quite a seiiMBtloti was created here by Fella CnrriO and Dave Mushy bringing In a large panther, which msasured about 10 feet. The "varmint" bad killed a sheep on Kd Jones' farm saVM milea from here, near a trail on hhh children pased to and from aODOul. The sheep was seen by 1 he children, partly eaten up. The panther ran when he heard the chlblr milug, but as soon as they passed, p carried the sheep 200 yards. The best dogs were soon acmhled aud In five minutes the beast treed. He was shot twice through the body, and, as lie felt, a dog grabbed him by tbe throat. The panther held the dog ny Its paws, but was too sick to hurt tbe dog, and was stiot In the head.

Few Oregon people are aware of tbe fact that a wonder nf Ihe world exists In the heart of the Cascade rsuge of mountains In Southern Oregon. Imagine a vast pit alx milea in diameter, with almost perpendicular shies 4000 t.. 0000 feet In height, and you have Crater lake. For centuries this lake was knewn to the Indians under the name of l.lao Rook. It was viewed with fear aa an abode of evil spirits, and was the source of many legenda. Crater lake was first seen by white men in 1S63. l'revlous to that Its exlatance waa unknown, except to the Indian trlbea near It. It was first explored In 1872 by a party of four, Captain Applegate being oue of the number, Hinoe then il has been several times visited by dill'erent parties of geologists tha depth of the lake has Ixcu ascertained in many places, and tlie island and Ita orater have been explored. All these various explorations have demonstrated that many thousand years ago an enormous volcano stood where Crater lake is, aud with a height possibly equal to that of Mt Shasta, 14,030 feet, and that the vast accumula tion of molten material within it escaped at a level thousauds of feet below the summit, leaving the mountain hollow, and the summit, having so mu eii of its support removed, fell in and disappeared In tbe molten reservoir below. In the lapse of agea the aiibterranean tires die. I out, and the great pit, from 4000 to 6'W0 feet below tbe surrounding walls, was partially filled by water. The laland, which is about 800 feet high, aud bas a crater 80 feet deep, la claimed by some to represent the summit of tha sunken volcano. Suob Is one theory, and there are strong reasons for believing il is tbe true one. Crater lake Is about six ml lea aoroaa it; hence tbe enormous amount of molten material within it when the voloano waa living.
