THE OREGON SENTINEL
"Wednesday, January 14, 1880.
Religious Services. Rev. D. A.
Crowell will preach at the M. E.
Church, Jacksonville, at 11 A. M., next
Sunday, Jan 18th Elder Peter
son will preach at Central Point next
Lordsday, Jan. 18th, and at Eagle
Point on the 25th.
Improvements at Klamath. We
learn from reliable authority that new
quarters are to be built at Fort Klam
ath next Spring for the enlisted men;
one for the cavalry and one for the in
fantry. The officers' quarters are still
in good order and sufficiently comma
Solar Eclipse. The solar eclipse
announced for Sunday afternoon lost
took place with due precision. During
the most of the afternoon heavy clouds
obscured the sun, but at 4 p. si. they
broke away and the partial eclipse was
plainly visible without the aid of smok
Recovering. The McFerrin family
residing near the desert are all nearly
Veil. A report was circulated that
they had "malignant diphtheria" or
t'black tongue," which had the effect of
keeping the neighbors away and great
ly distressing the family without cause
and creating unnecessary alarm.
A. Little Deluge. On Friday the
tail-race at the "Willow Springs mines
choked up and backed the water until
a large volume had accumulated.
When it broke it nearly submerged
Wm. Peninger's farm, flooding liis
barn and out-houses so that he had to
remove his stock ; but not before some
of his hogs were drowned.
Dam Carried Away. During the
heavy rain on Friday last Bear creek
raised so rapidly that the dam of the
Eureka Mill was swept away, and the
changing current seriously damaging
the county road between the mill and
Central Point. Steps have been taken
to protect the road from further
washing, which would be inevitable
should another warm rain ensue.
En Route. We had a call fiom
our genial friend, Lieut E. H. Shel
ton, who was en-route from Ft. Klam
ath to Walla Walla last week to join
his wife who is serioubly ill. He re
ports a very heavy snow-fall in Lake
county, the snow being about six feet
deep at the "ost"and five deep on the
road from Fort Klamath to Linkville.
Stockmen and merchants considered
the prospects very gloomy.
Mired. On Thursday night last
Goo. Chase discovered that the stone
culvert across the "run" in the Herrin
lane had washed out,and in attempting
to cross t the side of the road got liia
leaders inir-yL It was with difficulty
that he save them from drowning un
til help arrived, and ho utilized W. F.
a.nd Co.'s box by propping up the stage
to kwp it from capsizing until things
were righted. Who wouldn't b a
stage driver, out in the chilly night ?
A Slight Flurry. There has
been a little "discord" in our neighbor
ing town of Ashland lately, in College
circles, that threatened to discount our
little "organ" war. From our best
sources .of information it appears that
an effort was made to eject a music
teacher from the faculty, but she still
remains mistress of the situation. A
card in the last "Tidings" numerously
mgned, warmly endorses the teacher,
but it is to le regretted as "cards"
create a suspicion in the public mind
that somebody needs bolstering up.
We are glad to say that all is apparent
ly peaceful again,
Those Opium Dens. The "Times"
has at last discovered that there are
Opium "dens" in Jacksonville, but
thinks we have greatly exaggerated,
and remarks that only a "depraved
few visit the dens." We will say for
tne information of the "Times" that the
Sentinel hod materially checked
the evil by a kindly and earnest warn
ing to the young men who were
thoughtlessly yielding to the habit be
fore the "Times" noticed it. Conse
quently it is only those who are called
by that paper the "depraved few" who
still indulge and they are to be pitied
more thad blamed. We know exact
ly what we are talking about.

son, lately returned from Yreka, says
the late storm was heavier in Siskiyou
county than here, snow was three feet
deep on the summit of the stage road
pass. He thinks the loss of stock
across the State line will be even heav
ier than here, as there is less feed pro
vided. Since Mr. Davison's return it
has stormed all the time, and our latest
advises are that the snow was seven
feet deep on the highest points of the
road. Sleighs are now run instead of
stages between Barron's and Cole's.
This is the first time in ten years that
the mails had to be carried in sleighs
across the Siskiyou mountains.
Red Men Installation. The
Pocahontas Tribe of the Improved Or
der of Red Men installed the following
officers on the 7th of this month:

accompanied by her sister, Mrs.

Sheep are now dying in large num
brs in the valley. It is probable that
only those bands that were healthy, in
good condition and amply supplied
with food at the beginning of the
storm, will weather it through without
a loss of more than fifty per cent.
A prominent farmer tells us that
many sheep are dying from eating poi

well for our farmers to investigate and
discover the weed if possible to do so.

During Gen. Grant's visit in Jack
sonville, Florida, January 5th, the
thermometer stood 80 degrees in the
shade, with beautiful sunshiny weather,
and the magnolia filling the air with

Jacksonville, Oregon, had freezing
weather with the thermometer at 28.

The sharp wind which prevailed
here on the 9th instant, blew down
quite a number of frail fences and
rickety out-houses. In the lanes down
the valley, we are informed, miles of
fences and a number of hay sheds
were prostrated. It has been many
years since Jacksonville and Rogue
river valley experienced such a "blow."
We learn from R. M. Garrett, mail
contractor on the Waldo route, that
there has been a heavy snow fall in
Josephine county during the past week.
On the Hays' hill it was three feet in
depth and about two feet deep along
many miles of the road. Sheep were
dying in considerable numbers, and the
people of Josephine county will be
heavy losers in stock.
The small attendance at the Court
House last Friday night was very dis
couraging to our Amateur Minstrel
Troupe. Our boys who have assisted
with their musical talents on many
public occasions gratis, should not have
been slighted in this manner. But the
remarkably blustry weather was per
haps a valid excuse for the light house
on the night alluded to.
We regret to n-te the death of John
J. Nichols, formerly of Douglas county,
which took place at his residence in
Sam's Valley on Sunday morning last.
The health of the deceased had leen

caught a severe cold which proved his
last sickness. Mr. Nichols was a man

Very Changeable. -The people of
Rogue river valley are treated to all
kinds of weather this Vinter. Nature
seems to be at war with itself, and our
reputation for mildness of climate and
geniality of temperature has received
several very severe and chilling back
sets. The general thaw the forepart
of last week was" followed by some viv
id flashes of lightning and the rumb
ling of thunder on the night of the
5th and the morning of the 6th in
stant. On the 7th Jacksonville and
vicinity were visited by a pouring
tropical rain, which continued all
forenoon and turned into a snowstorm
toward evening. The waters which
came rushing down Jackson and Daisy
creeks soon caused those streams to
assume formidable proportions, run
ning over their banks and spreading
over the low places below town. The
timber of the bridge crossing Jackson
creek on Oregon street were again
moved out of place, and the ground
floor of P. J. Ryan's new barn was
flooded by the waters of Daisy creek.
On the morning of the 8th the mud in
the streets was frozen sufficiently stiff
to bear up the weight of a man, fol
lowed by a snowstorm that lasted all
forenoon of that day. When the storm
let up the fallen snow was found to
measure 4i inches on the level. On
the 9 th it rained all '.forenoon, rapidly
melting the snow of thfl previous days,
and at half past 12 a heavy wind came
down from the South, blowing a per
fect gale and threatening to level all
the rickety BtrucUmS in its course.
The wind lifted the lignt wooden build
ing in the rear of the residence of
Adam Klippel on Fifth avenue, used
as a carptner shop and wood shed,
dumping its roof and sides in the mid
dle of the street The gale continued
uninterruptedly for two hours, alter
nating with rain, snow and sunshine.

From Wes. Ingram, who called on
Saturday, we learn that all the ditches
at Willow Springs were flush. T. L.
Beck will move more of his rich dirt
this season than he has moved for the
past two Winters, and every miner in
the camp was busy. The Egan arastra
was still at work on good rock.
We met W. H. Benner, superinten
dent of the Centennial mine, a few
days ago, who informed us that the
water supply was ample for his six
inch pipe, and the prospect for a long
continued run very good. The Cen
tennial prospects well and no doubt
will pay its owners well this season.
The ground is now so thoroughly
saturated with water and there is
so large an amount of snow in the
mountains that miners will undoubted
ly have the largest water supply ever
known in Southern Oregon. Many of
the wells in Jacksonville are full to
the surface with water, and many cel
lars have to be abandoned.
Supreme Court Proceedings.
Among the proceedings of the Supreme
Court from the "Statesman" we find
the following: W. H. Effinger
presented to the court affidavits and
papers charging Sidney Dell with be
ing guilty of contempt of the court by
reason of having w ritten and caused to
be published false statements as to the
findings and opinions of the court in
tho case of Hewit and Walker vs.

at the January term of the court, 1879.

to dismiss allowed. The latter case in
volved the right of the County Com
missioners to lay out and open a coun

of Jacksonville. It was transferred to

Building Damaged in Ashland.
We learn that the Odd Fellows' brick
building recently erected in Ashland
has been very seriously damaged by the
storm. The foundation in front has
settled jo that the walls of the second
story in front are bulged forward sever
al inches and there are several long
vertical cracks in the wall, running
from the stone foundation up. The
wall was thought so insecure that on
Thursday last workmen were engaged
in strengthening the foundations, but
many think anything but the rebuild
ing of the whole front wall, a waste of
money. We heard long since that the
brick layers protested against the foun
dation as flimsy and unsafe but their
judgment was disregarded. We are at
a loss to know why this important item
has been omitted by our usually enter
prising cotemporary, the "Tidings."
Mormons Defiant. Advises from
Salt Lake, dated Jan. 5, state that yes
terday afternoon at the Mormon Quar
terly Conference in that city, Apostle
John Taylor, in closing his remarks to
about five thousand assembled Saints,
said that polygamy was ordained of
God, and the United States could not
stop it no nation on earth could stop
it all the nations on the earth could
not wipe it out He defied the United
States, and called upon all his hearers
who supported him to raise their right
hand. Every hand went up in support
of the Mormon leader in his treason,
and even women raised the hands of
infants in their arms. Taylor was fol
lowed by Apostle Smith who spoks in
tli3 same strain and in a defiant man-
Beautiful INSTRUMENT.-The church
organ about which there has been so
much talk lately was unboxed on Sat
urday and placed in Mr. Foudray's
parlor. It is said by musical experts
to be in perfect order nnd it is certain
ly one of the sweetest toned instruments
we ever heard. If it were in the
church where it should be, there is no
telling how many poor sinners might
be led to grace by its heavenly strains.

East of the Mountains.
Arthur Langell writes us the follow
ing from Langell valley, under date
of Jan. 6th :
Snow has fallen here to the depth of
twelve inches at my house; at "Horse
Fly" four feet with a crust which
makes it bad for stock. Horses have
been found standing under juniper
trees for four days on account of the
crust Old settlers think this Winter
will kill more stock than the hardest
Winter ever known in Lake. Very
little hay here, and feeding commenced
six weeks earlier than usual, and my
impression is that if the storm contin
ues six weeks longer two-thirds of the
cattle in this section will jierish. Sheep
will die by the wholesale. Langell val
ley is covered with ice 'eight inches
thick on which teams can pass easily.
The above being dated prior to the
last heavy storm, the perilous Condition
of stock in Lake county will be realiz

Reading being a railroad terminus did
not seem to give that town any more
life and animation than towns a hun
