That portion lying opposite tho Acad

land, was sold .to Thos. Smith for ?G85.
The remainder of the property was bid

Accounts of the late storm, publish
ed in the Portland dailies show
that the force of the wind was very
much greater in that city thau it was

than the papers an willing to admit.
It is said that the velocity of the wind
in Eastern Oregon was ninety miles
per hour, at Roseburg it was 27, and
at Portland 55 miles.
The people most needed in Oregon,
for whom the chances aro inexhaustible,
are those who want to secure them
selves a home, cultivate the soil and
raise stock. The government offers a
homestead to any settler on the public
domain, while under the desert and
pre-emption laws any quantity can be
secured. Any kind of stock-raising is
safe and exceedingly profitable. It is
s.ow to those who begin with nothing,
but any one who understands the busi
ness will .can usually getpjenty to
keep on shares, and may soon become .
an independent proprietor.
In Butte county the care of the sick ;
during 1879, averaged 36 cents per

of the physician and superintendent.
The "Register" jn alluding to the mat

observation that but few, if any, farm
ers in the county furnish better food
to their families than is furnished to
the inmates of the hospital, we are as
tonished at the showing of 36 cents a
head as being the cost It must be re
membered also in this connection that
liquors, wines, ale, porter, eta, are fur
nished for medicinal purposes whenever
deemed necessary by the physician.

Is itanEpidemic! Most everybody
you meet on the street or elsewhere is
complaining. The disagreeabe, damp,
chilly weather of the past week seems
to have had a very damaging effect upt
on the respiratory organs of-many of
in the head and breast, Roughs, sore
throats and hoarseness prevail exten
sively in fact, more so than was ever
known to prevail in this favored cli
mate of ouis. So far we can hear of
no very serious cases, but the complaint
takes in young and old. Ye local,
whose nasal organ has been running
quite liberally, is of the opinion that
the affliction is a combination of influ
enza and epizootic which must run its
course. The best curative or prevent
ive is, to keep the feet from getting
wet, protect the extremities from the
heavy atmosphere, and to blpw the
nose as often as required,
The Ashland Building. We learn
from T. O. Andrews of Ashland that
the damage done to the building, erec
ted jointly by the Odd Fellows and
several merchants of that place, by the
settling of the foundation is very ser
ious. Mr. Andrews says that when
the trench for the foundation was dug,
water to the depth of eighteen inches
was struck; the trench was then filled
with gravel and the foundation rock
laid on the gravel, and it seems that
neither the stone mason nor brick lay
ers are to blame. Those whose judg
ment is worth having, think that no
tinkering process will be sufficient to
restore public confidence in the safety
of tho building. The damage is a mat
ter of serious regret as the building
would havu been an ornament to Ash
land and from the fact that the "Tid
ings" is still silent we apprehend that
"somebody blundered" and is afiaid
the matter will be made public.
Hints to Correspondents. Write
often and tersely. If no special items
of public importance athaud give geiv
eral news, even birthsor Ru?c?ages are
worth publishing. Never mind the
spelling or grammar, the printer will
attend to that. Give facts, but do not
consider that what to the correspon
dent may be a side-splitting joke at the
expense of a neighbor, is of not the
slightest importance to the public. In
other words don't amuse yourself by
treading on your neighbor's corns, as at
tho moment he might be sticking a pin
Horses Suffering.- Matt. Oben
chain informs us that the storm has
been very severe on horse flesh on the
Butte Creek range. He has thirty
five head that have been "surfeited,"
that is: so drenched with rain, wet and

them have lost nearly all the hair from
their backs. The Obenchain lioys have
lost several head of horses but think
by careful treatment they will ,save
those now under cover.

At a public gathering of the young
men of Jacksonville, held at the Court
House Monday evening, January 19 th,
Charles Prim was called to the chair,
and Wm. Cardwell acted as secretary.
Charles Wolters was called on to
state the object of the meeting, which
he did by saying, that there existed
in our midst a necessity for a proper
plac3 of resort whera a young man
o-iuld go of evenings and spend his
spare time more profitably, than hang
ing around saloons as at present He
said, that the establishment of a public
library and reading room and introduc
tion of such amusements as are both
instructive and entertaining, would go
far in employing our young men in
their leisure moments. He hoped that
the meeting would take steps to
secure a hall, ic.
On motion, a committee of three was
appointed, consisting of Wm. Mensor,
A. Maegly and Fred. Overbeck, whose
duty it shall be to ascertain at what
figure the Crouemiller hall can be had,
also, to make an estimate how much
money it will take to furnish room,
etc, and to report at the next meeting.
By invitation Ad. Klippel addressed
the meeting. He approvsd the object
of the proposed enterprise, and believ
ed if once in running order and prop
erly conducted, would be tho means of
much good to the youngmen of ourtown.
He urged tho necessity of starting in
right, even if it did take a little more
time to effect an organization. He
considered the .undertaking a praise
worthy one, and he had no doubt that
by proper management the enterprise
would enlist the support not only of
the young men of Jacksonville but of
the old men also.
On motion, a committee of three was
appointed, consisting of Messrs. Prim,
Weber and Klippel, whose duty it shall
be to draft a Constitution and By-Laws
for th,e government of the proposed
society, and to rpport at the next meet
ing. Adjourned, to" meet Thursday
evening, January 22d.
Death of Lieut. E. H. Shelton.
Last Wednesday a report reached us
that Lieut Shelton, who started from
Jacksonville by stage Northward
bound had died before reaching Can
yonville. The reports were conflicting
but we have learned the full particu
lars, which show it. to have been part
ly the result of accidenr, for which no
blame can attach to any person. While
ridjng through the canyon Shelton re
quested the driver to stop and allow
hiin to ride on the inside, as he was
wet and cold. The request was at
once complied with, but before proceed
ing far tho wheels of the stage struck
a log lying in the road, bringing the
vehicle to a stand still, the shock throw
ing Shelton nearly out of the stage, and
by tlie time he was lifted up by Dr.
Callender, who was a fellow passenger;
life was extinct. The body was placed
in n corhn on arrival at (.Vnyonvillf
ann, pursuant to lnstwins trora
Army Headquarters at Portland, for
warded to that city. Shelton was 1st
Lieut, of Co. "L." First Cavalry U. S.
Army, and was on leave of absence
from Fort Klamath where his com
pany is stationed. He was a genial,
courteous gentleman and his loss will
be felt by his brother officers, but more
by the stricken wife who was awaiting
his coming. Although Dr. Callender
expresses no opinion, it is probable
that he died from heart disease or an
Legion of Honor Entertainment.
On Friday evening last the public
were again delighted with one of the
choice entertainments furnished by the
Temperance Legion. It was remarked
early in the day that interest in the
movement seemed to be abating, but
long before 7 o'clock the Court House
was jammed to its utmost capacity.
The programme was faithfully carried
out with tho exception of the ''address,"
.the appointed speaker having failed to
come to time, and the "quartet by the
old folks," the latter evidently feeling
that the "young folks'' had done so
much better than they possibly could,
that they were ashamed to put in an
appearance. It is evident that this
movement is increasing in popularity.
It is developing the musical andMiter
ary talent of our young ladies and gen
tlemen, elevating tho public taste and
diverting the attention of our boys
from vicious habits and evil associa
tions. About twenty more signatures
were added to the pledge and it is
worthy o? remark, that the very best of
order and decorum were observed. A
committee consisting of Mrs. J. W.
Merritt, Miss Sallie Cardwell and W.
M. Turner was appointed to prepare a
programme for the next entertainment
which will be given on Friday even
ing, Feb. 6th.
The Gale. The great jjalo on the
9th instant that swept the coast and
the interior of Oregon was the sever
est ever known in the State. The
wind blew at the rate of 56 miles to
the hour, lasting the greater tart of the
afternoon. The amount of damage
sustained was immense. Whole for
ests were hurled to the ground. Judg
ing from the accounts that reach us,
not a torfn in Western Oregon and
Western Washington territory but
what sustained more or less damage.
The Portland and other papers which
reach us give dt tailed accounts of
demolished factories, school houses,
churches, residences, barns, or
chards, fences, etc. But the mot
lamentable feature of the cyclone
was the loss of life by the falling of
roofs and trees. The exact number of
lives lost has not yet been ascertained.

When six months elapsed the doctor

Leap Year in Ashland. Tha -"Tid
ings" says: -'-The young ladies hereabout
have already begun to take advantage
of their leap year privileges. We have
noticed at public gatherings several
couples of which the stouter heart
seemed to be under the shawl." We
should remark that this is just the
nicest yet; and our boys are dying for
some of the Ashland girls to come to
Jacksonville and bring their big shawls
along. Yum! yuml
The Storm at Galice. The late
heavy wind storm appears to have been
ve y severe at Galice. That camp is
said to have been near the Eastern
edge o'f the cyclone as the greatest
damage was done to the Westward.
An eye witness describes the gale as
appalling, the wind roaring in the
mountains like the heaviest thunder
and trees falling in every direction.
Rabbits Perished. The recent
cold weather in this valley has not
been without its uses. Since tho dis
appearance of the snow the carcasses
of large numbers of "jack rabbits,"
which are very doitructiveto tho crops,
have been found, the animals having
been frozen to death or .arved.
