Indian Superstition. li, is a gn
ral belief among the Indians of this
coast that at some period not far distant
all the dead Iirlkins, whether killed in
battle or those that died a natural
death, will all arise from their graves
and become, as thy once were good,
J. h'jalthy warriors. They then expect
to stand and even chance with the
whites, nnd hope to drive them out of
Indiav Dances. The Indians now
in this vicinity have lcen holding
dances on Kanaka Flat each evening
for a week past charging their white
brethren an admission fee" of 50 cent
each to witness the performance.

assistance of any kind, to help build
our narrow guago railroad to the coast,

ture, but tho projectors of that scheme
seem to feel confident of their ability

nevertheless. A right of way is all
they ask. We hope to see their pre
diction, ""that it will be in running or
der in less than two years," verified.

rengo," a two-year-old owned by Capt

stock in companies of ten to twenty

kins:" To S. Booth, Jacksonville. We will
run the Etna-mare,- "Nellie Hawkins"
against "Johnny Schmoker," over the
Fort Jones course, at the meeting to bo
held the last of this month-, a single
dash of three quarters of a mile, or
half mile heats, best two in three,
catch weights, for 500 a- side. We
will also give the" Peacock mare a
chance in this, on the same terms.
Hawkins & Turner,
The above is in answer" tc? tho chal
lenge published in tho Sentinel last
week by Mr. Booth, but instead of ac
cepting" it they make an entirely new
race. To accept this Booth would
hardly have time to- reach the Etna
course, without any time for training
-whatever. Mr. Booth informs us,
however, that his challenge is still open,
and his proposition is as follows: He
will run "Johnny Schmoker" against
"Nellie Hawkins," known as the', Etna
mare, or any other horse in Siskiyou
county, a single dash of one half mile
on the Siskiyou county Agricultural
Society's track at Yreka, on Christmas
day, for 500 a side. Schmoker is to
carry 100 pounds and the marc' can
take catch weight. Whenever they
wish to take this each party is to place

Peculiar Accident, 'A rather pe
culiar mishap oceured to Holman
Peters on his last trip from Roseburg,
while bringing freight from that place
here, the circumstances of which were
about as follows: Ho was on top
of the Grave Creek hill, and wishing to
come down easy, constructed a rough
lock with a rope. He had only gone a
short distance down the hill when the
rope broke, and their being no brake
on the wagon at all Mr. Peters had to
jump off and let the team go to save
his own life. They only went a short
distance before the wagon went off the
grade, and in swinging around a curve
one of the horses was thrown over a
stout sapling, and getting caught in
the harness was suspended in mid-air.
After the accident an immigrant from
Missouri passed that way, supposed to bo
C. Day, of Mendocino county, Cal., and
seeing the horse in the tree, made the
remark that this was the most produc

to say the only damage done was
the spilling of several sacks of salt and
the harness spoiled in cutting down
the fruit from the aforesaid tree.
