A Bold Bukglauy. Last Thurs
day ni"ht Juile Arcliibold's store
in thfs placo. was entered by bur
glars and about $200 m clothing
pocket knives and other articles
were stolen.; The , tkeives effected
an entrance at the west window of
tho main building by taking out a
pane, reaching the catch and so
raising the sash. They went out
through a window in a back room
on the east side of the house fearing
to iro out directlv into the streets.
They had tried to get in at this win
dow but found the panes fastened
with putty and left it. A man found
some clothing that ihey had dropped
in getting er the fence which lead
to the discovery of the robbery. It
is thought by some that there is n
luid of organized theives in this
county. Several burgalaries in the
county lately would tend to confirm
this opinion. W.. D. Hosier's store
at the Grove, Mr. Spencer's store at
Cornelius, a grocery at Cilencoe and
Mr. Archibold's store at this place
have all been burglarized recently.
These fellows ought to le ferreted
out and punished. A burglar is nt
heart a murderer and we expect
soon to hear that lives have been lest
as well as goods.
Os Tuesday evening an obstupor
ous individual, whose name we with
hold for the present out of respect for
his relatives and family, was arrested
by the Sheriff at the instance of Jake
held to answer in ihe sum of $100
for using profane and obscene lan
guage on the streets and was lodged
in the County jail, lnit was bailed
out. Next morning the matter was
compromised tho complainant not !
appearing and the defendant paying j
the coasts. It scenis that fhis j
man went into Mr. Anderson's
house while intoxicated, when Mr.
Anderson was sent for and on arriv
ing proceeded to put the fellow out,
trying to persrade him in the first
place and not succeeding, used force,
and did strike the man in the face
several times, ejecting him from the
Dr. D. Li.Davis. We were shown

The Committee of voung ladies
appointed by tho M. E. Church in
this place to solicit subscriptions for
purchasing an organ have been mak
ing their rounds while the 3ouug
men men who do not have the ''col
lateral" and do not naturally have
the face to deny them, have been
watching their movements all week,
dodging around corners, running
down alleys rnd bolting their doors
t keep oat of their way. But some
of these young bachelors do not get
out of the way for the above reasons
at all they are too bashful is what
ails thrm. We know of one young
man for instance who saw these
young ladies after him who gallant
ly went out to the bain and milked
the cow, something he had not done
before for years, on account of pure
Beats Tun Chkt Justices. -A good
one is told on Stave Scoggin and t' e
Sheriff of Yamhill. This is the way
we heard it: The Sheriff of Yamlr'M
attached some property in his coun
ty on an execution. Hearing of it
Scoggin went up and filed his claim
to the property attached. During n
conversation between them in rela
tion to the projierty Scggin insinu
ated that some one would have some
costs to pay, at which the Sheriff,be
fore"whom the trial of the light of
possession was to be had, offered to
bet Scoggin$25 that judgment would
be given against him. Stave, though
a man of acknowledged nerve in such
matters had to weaken. The aver
age CI icf Justices of tho various pre
cincts can now be happy.

A WASHINGTON COUNTY MONSTER.
He has Fifteen Children !-ls Worth
$50,000 and Will not Give His
Dusis Darling a Dollar Who Is
He? Where Is He? One at
Time Now, and Don't Shake Your
Gory Locks at Us.
Duniway informed an admiring
audience at Astoria last fall that
when she was out in this county
a woman enme to her and asked her
for several numbers of the New
Xothicezt, hoping a she said that
her husband might take a liking to
the paper and so give her enough
money to subscribe for it. This un
fortunate weaker vessel said that her
husband was worth $50,000 and that
she had borne him fifteen children
already, and ten of them were still
living, and that the aforesaid law
making, purse-holding lord would
not let her have a dollar without she
begged him for it. The great briny,
lachrymal chops chased each other
down the pale cheeks of this darling
mother of seventeen children as she
asked D. for thm numbers of the
Xeir. Xorth wester and consequently
D. incontienently (fell on her neck
and wept, and promised the mother
of the twentv-seven children that
she should have them we mean that
she should have the papers.
Now then who is this Washington
county monster-man who is the
owner of them 50,000 cash spondu
lix dollars and the tyrant lord of this
sorrowing, non-voting, ieiuaic wo
man with the thirty seven children?
Come to the center! Who is he?
Where is he? and what is he? One
at a time now, and don't shake jour
gory locks at us. Can it be possible
that it is any one of the large tax
payers in this county mentioned by
us two weeks ago? We call on Sher
iff, C. T. Tozier, of Wasington coun
ty to arrest this man in the name of
common humanity and womanitv
and put him in juil handcuffed and j
manacled where he can't see that
non-voting wife, them fifty-seven
children nor the Xr X'tncex.'er
anymore forever. So mote it be and
so be it evermore.
W. H. Paukf.r has been teaching

have progressed rapidly and are

principles of penmanship. Mr.

He has been teaching the District

We learn from a letter from Col
umbia Academy that when our Dep
uty Sheriff, H. B. Morgan, was out
at Centerville collecting taxes that
he was invited into the Academy and
asked to address the school, which
he did in a neat and interesting
speech. The writer of the letter ev
idently made a mistake having cut
the paper in two where this item left
off and so robbing us, as we fear, of
several interesting items. Xo name
was signed, but we knew the hand
writing and so we publish what the
malevolent scissors spared us.
