little standing room was left on tho

ed by any troupe that has visited South
ern Oregon. Some of tho actors ex
celled in their parts but all did well.

itations were nearly all Dew and the
manner in which they were rendered
was unique and comic. The music was
excellent and the cornet duet, by Prof.
Schmidt and son, was in the highest
degree artistic- and exquisite. The

Fire. Last Tuesday night about
one o'clock fire was discovered in Mat
Shannon's shop, located on tlie corner of
Fourth and C streets. When first dis
covered the flames were issuing from
the north side of the roof and but for
prompt action on the part of those
who arrived first on the scene the
building would have been destroyed
and the fire would have spread to ad
joining houses. The origin of tho fire
isfsupJused to Lave been a spark from
the forge during the evening which
caught in the roof until tho late houri
when it was discovered. Thejoss sus
tained was about one hundred dol
lars. An Audacious Thief. Says the
Portland "Bee," of September 9th:
On Sunday last while Archbishop
Blanchet was at dinner some villainous
wretch entered his room and stole his
valuable gold watch. Tlie Archbishop
prized the timepiece very highly, not
merely for its intrinsic value, but
on the account of its having
been presented to him by the laity.
A strict search has been made, but
up to the present timo it has not been
recovered. Wo hope the scoundrel
who stole it will be overtaken and
Judgo Bellinger given an opportunity
to haul him over the coals.

Bio Appleoate. The mines along
this stream if properly worked
are inexhaustable.- Tho volume of
vater flowing aloug;its.channel.is suffi
cient to-rcmovo and deposit tlie lighter
debris without obstructing the stream
in such' a irianner as to destroy the
dump along the whole line of placer
diggings following its course. But
there is not water force enough to re
move the larger, nor even tho moderate
sized boulders; and to keep the channel
open they must resort tfrthe derrick and
deposit tho heavy stone outside of tho
.bed'ofth'e stream or'but a few yearn
will have elapsed until tho mines will
be rendered; valueless. Tlie opinion,
