Passing through Southern Oregon in
1847 was rather a moro irksome trip
than it is at tho present day, when tho
appliances of civilization renders tho trip
speedy, safe and pleasant. With pack
and riding horses at that time it was
tedious and dangoro'us as the country
was infested with roving hands of
In making that trip in 18-17 there was
in company witii us seven families, the
first whito woman who had over made
tho trip from the Willamette valloy to
California. Thero were also in com
pany about twenty young men, dressed
in buckskin and all tho usual habiliments
of tho. web-foot boys of early times.
Thero was one gentleman in tho com
pany who had two small children too
small to ride a horse alone, so be pre
pared a saddle after the pattern of a pack
eaddlo, put a rim around the upper ex
tended points, then putting a saddle on
the horse, a small pack on each side,
he seated tho children, one on each side,
and the horse was lead all the way to
California, the children at times sleep
ing comfortably as we moved along,
Compare this mode of traveling nearly
fifty years ago with that of the palace
car of today.
We camped one night at the foot of
the hill Nebo, as il ia now called, and
noting tho representation of the bat
tle of Table Rock at uur pioneer
reunion, wo were reminded of an occur
ance that happened at the time of our
camping there in 1847.
As Induua were plentiful around, we
placed two boys out as guards, but to
waid morning tired nature asserted its
sway, and the boys dropped oft" iuto the
arms of MorpheuB. On awakening from
our siuuiuer, ana looking out lor our
horses, wu discovered that oue of our
most valuable ones was missing. On
taking a surjey of the surrounding
country we saw an Indian on a lioiee
making the ascent of Mt. Nebo. Three
boys mounting their busses starlud m
pursuit, and after following the Indians
diana for a couple of miles they came to
a camp of about fifty Indians, who made
warlike demonstrations, and so the boys
thought it best to retreat back to our
camp, and let the horfe go rather than
their scalps. Indians were hero, there
and everywhere at that time, and bad
they been as well armed and as leady to
fight us they were in later years, that
company would never have passed
through this valley unscalped. We
were pretty well armed with old fash
loiied Hint locks and were not prepared
to do that execution that can bo done
nowadays with the Winchester.
When we got to Roguo river the stream
was full and rapid, and something "must
be dent- to cross over .the women and
children and our packs. It waa deter
mined a canoe must be mado. After
striking camp a party waa detailed to
guard the horses, a party to guard the
camp, and a third party to dig a canoe,
The writer was oue of the party to guard
the horses. We had no implements for
constructing the cance but some old axe3
that had been brought across the plains
in 1S13. A tree was felled and tho paity
detailed for. the work, went at it with
good will and before night the canoe was
completed. Three horses were saddled
and mounted by three men who with
their lassos fastened one eud to the horn
oi the saddle and the other eud to the
canoe, dragged it along to ths bauk of
tho river. We will tell what then oc
curred later on. s. S.

The dance at the Armory on the eve
ning of July 4th was well attended and
the light fantastic toe tripped tolhe
strains of enlivening music was indulged
in until a late hour, when the lesutiful
girls of Roseburg and the courteous
gents departed to their respective homes
well satisfied that their patriotic hearts
had ebbed and flowed will, the crimson
tide of life's current, in exultation of the
thought that they wore born in a1 laud of
liberty, secured to tlieui by a Washing
ton, who iu early life danced to the
strains of the violin with tho belles and
rustic luaidena of Virginia. May the:
blooming youths, male and female, bo
blessed with life and health for many
years, and may they always be as ready
at the call of their country to pledge
their lives and fortunes in its defense, as
Ihey were to joi'u in the giddy' mazes of
tho dance on the last anniversary of our

CAPTAIN WEBB KILLED.
He Goes 'Down a Chute In a Barrel
and Breaks His Back.
Coeub D'alehe, Idaho, July 4. In all
probability, Captain Panl Webb lost hid
life near here today in an attempt to
ride his submarine boat or barrel down a
300-foot log chute. It is belieyed Ids
back is broken. About 500 people wit
nessed the descent into Lake Coenr
d'Alene, which took place at RosenV log
camp, eight miles up the lake. On the
arrival of the boats, at 4-30, a log was
sent down as a test. It came like a
flash of lightning. A mild rain was tally
ing, which gave the chute a smoothness
that added momentum to anything com
ing down it. The -log passed down
safely, and Webb's marine boat had been
sent down in tbe forenoon with a success
that gratified tbe hazardous man who, at
5 o'clock, was placed within tbe boat lor
his last ride.
Tiie affair was G feet G inches long, 2
feet in diameter, and cone-shaped.
There was a strip of sheeting lengthwise
on the barrel to make it slide smoothly
and prevent its turning over too fre
quently. On the inside it was up
holstered with carpets and rubber fix
tures to strap a man in such a way that
the barrel could strike on end in a 100
foot fall and not injure the occupant.
Webb, when placed in the barrel, neg
lected to take all tbe precaution his
machine offered for safety. He was con
fident as tbey tucked him in tho fatal
barrel. He told his manager to have
whistles blown when he struck the
Tbe signal was giyen, and the barrel
ran down the chute wildly. Two-thirds
of the way down was a slight raise in the
iLcline. Here thebarrel jumped 30 feet
in the air, striking tbe ground on end,
then rolling 40 feet farther down the hill.
Many persons on tbe boat turned their
heads with horror. Some fainted, as all
feared instant death to Webb. When
the barrel .was opened, Webb was
jammed closely into the end. He was
conscious and talked freely. Dr. Rue-
sell, of Spokane, examined him and pro
nounced his spinal column broken. A
tug was procured, and the nnfortunate
man hurried to Coeur d'Alene and then
Webb died at Spokane at 11 o'clock,
FOURTH OF JULY.
How it was
Here the people despite tbe frequent
showers, were on the grounds early in
the forenoon, and sheltered by the ever
greens, the program waa very success
fully carried out. Mr. Chaney, the ora
tor of tbe day, did the occasion credit as
did also the choir, and the little folks.
The majority of the people took dinner
on tbe grounds and all fared sumptuously.
The afternoon was principally devoted
to racing, as tbe rain of the forenoon
made baseball games an impossibility.
The first was a hurdle racj for $2.50 first
prize and $1 second. The first prize
was carried oil by Wm. Hurd, and the
second by A. Fisher. A hundred yard
foot race was second on the afternoon
program and the $2.50 purse was alfo
awarded to Wm. Hurd, and tbe second
prize, 75 cents to A. Fisher. The three
legged race for a parse of $2, was easily
won by Claud Fallin and Fred Kelley.
The horse race, a two hundred yards'
dash for a purse of $10, was carried off
by J. H. Whitsett's gray, with Steven-
sou's brown mare a close second.
This race came very near involving
the Bporls in a general row, and the
murmurs that the Stevenson nag was
held back, were long and loud; however
no serious trouble resulted and little
money changed hands. The day closed
with a grand ball, aud a large attend
ance and a general good lima is reported.
