New Society Hall. The Improv ed Order of Red Men have rented nearly all the upper story of Orth's building on Oregon btreet, which is to be fitted up elegantly for the meetings of the order. Their new hall is to be 3Gx30 feet with two ante rooms. We have not learned what their old hall in the Cronemillcr building is to be put to. St. Mart's Academt. -Notice else where the new advertisement of this popular institution which is entering on its sixteenth year of prosperity. Notwithstanding the increasing school facilities of this county St Mary's is still .enjoying its full share of public favor, , and during its long existence there has never been the slightest shadow on its reputation. The attendance is quite ; large, the number of music pupils be- ing thirty, the teaching of music being la specialty. Property Sold The Skid more property in Ashland advertised to be sold at Sheriff's sale was knocked off last Saturday for the sum of SI, 575. That portion lying opposite tho Acad emy, comprising about three acres of land, was sold .to Thos. Smith for ?G85. The remainder of the property was bid in by E. K. Anderson the judgment creditor for $900. Bidding was for a while quite lively, and it is thought the property brought its full value. Nek Road Proposed. We hear ' that an effort will be made to open a 3icw road to Lmkville next .Summer by the way of Little Butte, which will al io open a new anil easier toute to Fort Jamath. liie road will follow' near- ?, the railroad survev up Little Butte ind 'can either strike the present road i near the ""Brown" ranch or go diiect to Liinkville. Inten-ecting the "Dead Indian road at a point near the Lake of the Woods, that road would then be taken to Fort Klamath via Pelican Bay. The ascent is said to be ery easy and the route over very superior tfground for a road. The Grist Mill. On Monday C. ij. Howard surveyed a' parcel of ground Containing a fraction over five acres, lm which the steam grist mill is to be ited. Jibe tract is just outside the Corporation limit and runs South to j Jrest House gulch. It was purchased from Major Glenn and is a very suita ble location with Ample water and fplenty of room for ,tock, vards, Ac. The thirty-six horse power engine at Lone time in use in the quartz mill up Jackson creek has been purchased and it is said will furnish ample power for three run of "burrs." It is thought the mill company will put in a "run" for buckwheat which no doubt would prove profitable. Work will soon .commence on the foundation. Safe in Port. Joe. Beggs, the cap tain of the biggest freight-teams in this . section, gives a graphic account of his perilous voage from Roseburg to Jacksonville. First day out, heavy head wind blowing; came to anchor in Ltireen's lane, team laboring fearfully Ian the trough of the swelling ocean of mud. Second-dat-sotiSaiLlieavr mud swell nearly swamped the whole outfit; I hove the lead, found rich mud bottom tat ten fathoms at the foot of Roberts' ' rill: lay to under close reefed wagon sheet till wind lulled.

On Fri day last Mrs. Hannah Herd, who had Ixsen at the residence of Dr. Jack on Applegate, started from there on foot to McKee's place, and on Saturday her body was found in Buckleys field, .about one hundred and fifty yards be low the point where the Crescent City road crosses Jackass creek. The sup position is that the unfortunate woman, who for several years has been afflicted with paralysis, attempted to ford the .creek which was running swiftly and in losing her footing was drowned and I -washed out in an eddy where found. Coroner Huffer proceeded to the scene I .of the accident on Monday, but no in- iquest was held, there being no reason for any official investigation. The de ceased was the wife of James Herd, was a native of Schenectady, New LTbrk, and was 43 years .of age. LOCAL ITOlS. Tact Economy. Industry. Perseverance. Insure success. Keep a dairy.

A foul scandal has been circulated with regard to the "purity" of Dillon's celebrated corn juice. It is the choice product of the Blue grass region in Kentucky and won't intoxicate if mod erately taken. Farmers throughout the valley bay scarcely any grain has been sown yet and that only a few plows have been started in very dry localities. There is time enough however to sow more grain thau we need. We learn that Patrick Donegan has lost several hundred blieep out of his band on Rogue river.

Week before last an extensive rock slide occurred on the wagon road at Mule Hill Bend, Big Applegate, which placed an effectual embargo on team ing. The terminus of the road will be at Nipk Wright's until the "slide" can be removed by the citizens of the upper Applegate country. A gentleman named Bill Williams, and his family had a hard trip going from Jacksonville to Alturas, lately. They were seventeen days on the road, and suffered much from the severe cold. They weie compelled to camp out sev eral nights in the snow and at one time were twenty-four hours without anything to eat. "Yreka Union." 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 here. Private letters, howeser, indi cate that the damage has been vastly underrated and it is far more serious 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 day, per capita, including the " salaries of the physician and superintendent. The "Register" jn alluding to the mat ter, says: "Knowing from personal 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. The figures show a management of the institution highly creditable .to some body." Stock at Harnet. A letter re ceived by Mr. Hanley from his son John, under date of Jan. Cth, states I that .snow had been lying in Harney valley for sixty days but that stock were not yet suffering.

Piping at the "Dry diggings" at Grants Pass ip going on night and day with a full head of water. Keaton fc Klippel on Poorman's creek are working with a good head of water and prospects flattering. The Squaw Lake Co. have been in terrupted by slides but Supt Klippel expected to be piping again, on Satur day last Miners on Foot's creek are tearing the dirt up in that camp at a lively rate. Plenty of water and a good prospect for a big harvest of "dust." Alex Watts of Williams' creek re ports that he has done more washing on his "horse head" claim than he did during the whole of last wason. Jackass creek is unusudlush (nd every miner -is JJUy35rtyLjarge amount of the rich dirt of that camp will be moved before the season ends. Sturges (k Co. on Jackass creek have a force of bixteen men ground-sluicing in their two claims, and have already moved more dirt this season than was moved all last winter, Pipe laying at the '49 diggings own ed by E. K. Anderson was completed on Saturday and work commenced in earnest That camp always "pans well for its fortunate owner. Thos. Kahler brought into town yes terday, a nugget of gold and quartz weighing five and one half ounces. It was taken out at the Fort Lane dig jrings, and was worth about sixty dol lars. The operations of the Sterling hy draulic company have been retarded by numerous slides in their ditch owing to the melting snow. Piping commenced yesterday and no further interruption is anticipated this season. From Galice creek we learn that the English and Blue Gravel companies are piping with a full head of water and moving immense quantities of dirt The snow along the line of the above companies' ditches averages five feet in depth, making a splendid wat er supply as it is melting very slowly. Green Bros, are again crushing rock from the Sugar Pine ledge; work hav ing been suspended for a short time during the freeze. 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 rOar-iieopfer-AHhJu wlilLij.ul-sqfchr 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 in you. 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 snow while exposed, that many of 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. Delayed. An interesting commun ication from Kerbyville signed ''.Col lege" has been delayed and is now too late to go in "extenso,'" Among its items is one showing the extraordinary capacity of the Kerbyville folks for dancing twelve hours on a stretch in dicating great powers of endurance. It also describes the tribulations of some "couples" who left "Kerby" in sleighs and returned on foot. YOLXG JIEXV JIEETIMJ. 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 apoplectic fit, 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. Religious Services. Elder Peter son will preach at Eagle Point next Sunday, 25th inst. ...... .Rev. M. A. Williams will preach at the M.

Editor Sentinel: As we live in a remote part of the county I don't know that it will interest any of your readers to hear of us, but I will give you a few items. Tho freeze is over and roads almost impassable. Holidays are oyer, and everything is quiet agai'.i. A sad accident happened on the sec ond of January.

Wisdom of Butte creek, shot thirteen quail's heads off in fourteen shots on Christmas day The medical fraternity of Ashland seems to be divided in opinion as to whether the ailment which has been circulating about among us is the meas les or chicken pox , Mr. G, W. Wilshire informs us that the mercury marked 6. deg. below zero at Big Butte on the cold morning, and that a num ber of birds were found frozen to death on the boards in Parker's lumber yard We are informed by Mr. Bauru that Coon, the freighter who left Rose burg for Ashland on the 12th, has been "spoken." We are relieved greatly, having had some apprehension that he had foundered and gone down with all on board Lester White of Ash land, receiyed a letter dated January 9th, from John Cardwell, who is nt Colwcll & Bybee's ranch on Tulelake, in which the writer states that John Gleinn had just reported 300 head of cattle mired at Little Klamath lake so that they could not be taken out The cattle had gone out upon the ice to get water and to reach tho tules during tho hard freeze, and the thaw came so sud denly that they could not reach solid ground, and were left floundering jn tho water and mud. The Doctor's Fee and the Way of the World. Patient with severe col icky pains at 3 a. m., says to his doctor: "Sa'e me, and I will give you a check for a thousand dollars." As patient is wealthy, doctor smiles "childlike and bland," and administers an hypodermic injection of morphine. Five minutes have elapsed, and patient feels easier. "Keep at it, Doctor, and I will give you a check for five hundred dollars." Five minutes more, and patient drow- silvtu rnsJnhis bed. mm his-thank fulness through his tears, and assures the doctor that he fels like giving him a "fif-t-y dol-lar bill." Tho doctor calls the following day, finds his patient up and dressed, and ready to go to his business. "You see, Doctor, I have got over my little attack without giv ing you much trouble, but be sure to send in your bill the first of J.lje month." When six months elapsed the doctor sent in a bill amounting to three dol lars. His grateful patient pressed him to cut it down to two. After so doing the Doctor sued to get it, and his pa tient put in a stay of execution. Case still on. The doctor has lost his faith in grateful humanity, has moved to Pine Ridge, on the Hudson, and is ne gotiating for a partnership with the "Successful Practitioner." "Medical Record."

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.
