The Storm. A heavy south wind
visited Jacksonville and vicinity yes
terday morning between five and six
o'clock, which shook up the trees pretty
jenerally, twisting otF some saplings
and the limbs of fruit and shade trees,
also shaking up tho folks who reside
in rickety buildings exposed to the
wind. The sky was overcast with a
dense coat of clouds and the distant
rumbling of thunder could be plainly
heard. A glorious rain ensued allay
ing the dust and refreshing vegetation
which had for sometime been drooping
for the want of rooibture. The barom
eter had for some days pointed to the
stormy side of the corapas, and the
thermometer, which for a week had
danced among the eighties sank down
to fifty. It was evident that other
parts of the valloy besides our own
were sharers in the outpouring, which
lasted most of the afternoon and is still
raining as we go to press.

The Last Day's Races. The last
day of the races, the other two days
having been reported in last issue,
proved the most interesting of any that
Lad been previously held. A large at
tendance was present and considerable
money found its way into the pool box
on the different races of the day. The
first was a match rare of 300 yards
between Ellison's "Capt. Jinks" and
Kendricks' "Skcdadle," $4U a side,
which was won by the former. The
next was a single dash of one milo be
tween James Drum's "Gray Dick" and
the Baley mare; won by tho former
in 2:05 After this came the foot
race, which proved tho event of the
day. The entries were Henry Mensor,
Fred Wickwire and George Dunlap,
distance, 80 yards and repeat. Men
sor proved the favorite in the pools
and also won the race easily in two
straight heats. For the trotting race
there were two entries, C. W. Kahler's.
"Nelly" and Jas. A. Cardwell's "Aleck"
won by the former in two straight
heats, time 3:01. The track was very
heavy during the continuation of tlTe
races, which accounts for the slow time
made, but the proprietor promises to
do considerable work on it before the
next races occur. .
Rmlroad Work. Since the with
drawal of the suits by Villard com
plete harmony has. been restored be
tween the Oregon Railway and Navi
gation and the Northern Pacific rail
road companies, and the work of con
struction on both roads is now being
vigorously pushed. Speaking of the
acquisition of the C. & 0. R. R., the
Chicago Tribune of a recent date says:
Mr. v lllard and his friends have re
cently acquired the Orpgon and Cali
fornia lines running south from Port
land in tho valley of tho Willamette
river, and they are to bo extended
southward to connect with tho Cali
fornia and Oregon railroad so as to
form a connection with San Francisco
by rail. This system has already 300
miles of railway in operation 200 on
the east bank and K)0 on the wet
bank. Under the jdan of reorganiza
tion adopted at Frankfort-on-the Main
a few day ago, a new loan of 66.000,
000 was obtained on the security of
these 300 miles in operation and of the
extension proposed to bo built, and
work will be proceeded with immedi
Dangers of the Foot Loo. The
long foot log spanning Big Applegate
between the Squaw Lako company's
diggings and the Grand Applegate
mines on Wednesday last was the
scene of an exciting accident. Mrs.
Geo. Schumpf, who was visiting the
mines, whilst endeavoring to cross the
foot Ioj: and w hen near the center of
the log, lost her balance and being
overcome by a sense of dizziness, fell
into tho stream dragging with her Dan
Silva, who was assisting her across.
As the waters of Applegate at that
point are very swift and deep a scene
ensued that beggars description. The
heroic struggle for dear life was wit
nessed by the helpless spectators on
shorp,and Dan Silva afterintense appli
cation succeedrd in rescuing himself and
charge from a watery grave. It was a
close call for Mrs Schumpf, but all the
injuries sho sustained consisted in a
big scare and a thorough wetting.
Bowden of this
River. Samuel S.
city has received a
letter trom tho Wood river mines,
written by Jos. Parkhurst and dated
May 22d, it Ketchum, Idaho, convey
ing the following information about
that country : I believe this to be a
good country. Mining men say that
there is more ore in sight than in any
country in America. Many capitalists
are coming and making purchases of
mining property, but little machinery
is heie yet. In July several mills will
be erected; three saw mills are just
being put up. There is plenty of work
for carpenters, and all other laborers
desiring employment, at good wages.
I have never encouraged persons to go
to new countries, which this is. But
the Wood river country will remind
you ot Lalitorma in io:U, only that
money is not plenty as then. .Nothing
has, as yet, been realized from the
Conquering a Grizzly'. A good
story is told of a tu-sel a trapper and
a grizzly had, said to have taken place
only a short time ago in the Cascade
mountains near Spencer's ranch. The
trapper was out in the woods with a
sharp axe blazing trees for a trail into
a dense section of the forest, when he
saw a hugh grizzly coming rapidly
toward him. Running away from
bruin was or.t of the question, and be
ing without gun his only show was to
stand his ground with his axe and go
for his assailant with that weapon. He
succeeded in getting in a lick just back
of the grizzly's shoulders, burying the
axe so deep that it stuck fast. Dodg
ing the struggling grizzly the trapper
Snally got in the finishing stroke, and
his hide was the only trophy he carried
off from the field of battle.

ASHLAAD COLLEGE COHHEACEHCNT.
The closing exercises of this young
institution, including class examina
tions, occupied the first three days of
last week, May 23, 24 and 25. The
annual sermon by Rev. W. T. Chap
man was delivered on Sunday evening
in the M. E. Church. The examina
tions occupying three school days, were
both oral and written, giving ample
opportunity for visitors to participate
in the exercises, and to judge intelli
gently concerning tho attainments of
pupils, irrominent among the visitors
and ample form was our State
Superintendent of Public Instruction,
Prof. L. J. Powell. Also that of
County Superintendent, J. D. Foun
tain, scarcely less ample.
On Monday evening the public were
treated to a feast of good things in the
shape of a literary entertainment, in
which, had it been a contest for hon
ors the prize would have fallen to the
Primary Department, where "march
ing song" and other performances were
executed with such perfection to not
only delight but surprise those who ex
pected good things from there under
tho training of Mrs. Rogers. The
recitations by thoso of the higher
grades were oxcellent.
Tuesday evening came the musical
entertainment, which was patronized
by a large audience filling the spacious
chapel. -Among the pieces rendered
with special excellenco were the
"Hallelujah chorus" and tho "Hunters
Glee." Miss Ella Scott, of San Fran
cisco, had charge of tho musical depart
ment during the past year. She is
succeeded by Mifs Weber of Chicago,
111. Wednesday ovening brought the
crowning success of tho entire pro
gramme, it being the occasion of the
institution awarding its first diplomas.
Two undergraduates represented the
lower grades; John T. Gore of Phoenix,
presenting an original oration of much
merit and Mis3 Maria Merriman of
Jacksonville an essay. Prof. Powell,
who sat near tho writer, applauded
them warmly, and whispered the sug
gestion that we should not hear them
excelled this evening.
The graduating class consisted of
Miss Kato A. Thornton, Mr. William
II. Gore and Miss Nettie Wagner, all
of Jackson county. The productions
of these were full of thought and
evinced excellent rhetorical training.
Marks of undoubted originality, inde
pendent expression, earnest and grace
ful diction characterized them. Each
was so excellent in itself and so admir
ably performed that, when Prof. Powell
was called out for some remarks at the
close, ho responded with more than
his accustomed warmth; peaking in
highest terms of the school and of all
that he had seen of its work and work
ers, closing with tho remark that he
had "never on graduating occasions in
Oregon or in any other State, seen the
performances of this evening excelled."
Others who had in tho eastern states
witnessed commencements, asserted
the same. The addiess to the graduat
ing class was given by Prof. Ladru
Royal, after which President Rogers
presented the diplomas which are tho
first awarded by the school.
The audienco was largo and intelli
gent, leading citizens n&t only of Jack
son county, but of Lake and Josephine
and of Northern California being pres
ent, and manifested an eager and ad
miring interest. We predict for Ash
land College and Normal School con
tinued success. It has already won a
warm and seeming permanent place
in the sympathies of the people. A
future of great usefulness and honor is
before it. The friends of tho institu
tion are much pleased that President
Rogers remains in his present position,
and that Rev. Ladru Royal has been
elected Vice President and Professor
of natural science. Miss Kato Thorn
ton remains as assistant teacher, and
Mrs. Rogers who is popular with all
the pupils has consented to continue as
preceptress of the College and princi
pal of thepreparatory department. As
before noted, Miss A. Weber of Chic
ago, was elected teacher of Instrumen
tal Music. Traveller.

Down the Embankment. Quito an
accident befel Al. Sturges last Tuesday
night as he was endeavoring to find
his way home in the dark from Jackass
creek. Walking nlong what he sup
posed to be the road ho missed his
step and fell over a 20-foot embank
ment onto a pilo of rocks. He came
down, he hardly knows how but very
much like a bag of meal altogether.
A few bruises and a broken upper rib
were the sum total of the injuries, and
Al is doing well under the care of Dr
Grapes and Peaches. The season
so far has been very favorable to the
growth of orchards and vineyards. At
no previous season have the peach
trees been so heavily loaded as now.
The "thinning out" process is being re
sorted to by many orchard men to pre
vent the trees from breaking down.
The vineyards also promise to yield
more bountifully than ever.
An "Onpleasantness." The Mo
