. A Trip to MyrtlcCrcek.
Wednesday morning General Bjnrs of
tho Soldiers' Homo took in his back fivo
other members of tho Mystic Order, J ,
Wobb, S. Caro, Pap Patterson, 0. Gn
lmni and ye reporter, and that other citi
zen, G.W. Kimball, and started for Myr
tlo Creek to attend tho funeral of n de
ceased Mason, George Weaver, of that
A Salruiau, J. I. Chaptnaii, Clone
Parrott, N T. Jowctt, J. It. Gawfield and
J. Giyens had preceded us on tho same
mission in buggies.
The morning air was cold, crisp and
frosty, rendering overcoats and mittens
comfortable adjuncts to our apparel. We
enjoyed the rido hugely until we came to
ltobert's Hill. Here it was found advis
able to "hoof it" to tho summit. As wo
went puffing and wheezing up the hill,
visions of a ''hold-up" wero intruded up
on our minds and a fear more chilling,
than the cold air caused seme of us to
tremble. Tho matter was duly canvassed
at the foot of the hill before starting on
tho fearful climb. We say fearful be
cause on this hill the "lone highway
man" has been known to order "hands
up" of morothan one traveler, and "gone
through him" and relieved him of his
hard earned coin. After comparing notes
on tho state of our several finance, it
was fonnd that if held up the robber
would not reahzo much that would bo of
vilae to him. Ono brother had a bogus
halMulIar, which he proposed to savo
by putting it into the shoe cf his corned
foot, increasing his lameness and thus
elude the robber'u grasp Oco had a
nickel, another had "nary a nickel."
Ona had a jack-knife he could part with
if demanded. Ye reporter had nothing
but a copy of tho Plalndealek of any
valne, so he consoled himself with the
idea that, as he vras soliciting subscri
pts for the Puiindealek, ho might find
a man to "take it," and thus get a bulge
oa the Review, where its teachings
might do some good ; and so with this in
spiring idea went bounding up the steep
hill noted for "hold upa."
After half aaTjour'a climb no arrived
at the summit safe and sound without
the less of a nickel, hot the waste of a
little muscle and eatra breath. When
we arrived at the summit and looked
over Round Prairie and the South Ump
qua beyond, glinting in the sunlight like
a burnished silver 1-and set with dia
monds, our company with one accord
involuntarily ejaculated "Isn't that a
grand sight:" "It is beautiful." After
enjoying the enchanting scene a few
moments we all "piled in" aud bean
the serpentine descent, Jehu like. The
general being an old pioueer pointed oat
to us all along the route places of inter
est. He pointed cut one of more interest
to him than to his listeners. It was the
place where he wooed, won aud wed one
of Umrqua's lair maidens 40 years ago,
when his locks, now silvery, were aub
urn. Yes. General Brars has seen and
experienced much of the Hps and downs
of Douglas county life He has fought
the Indians and endured many hard
ships bnt the greatest ordeal of his
eventful life was "popping the question."
While thus enjoying remenicecces of
pioneer life we came to the village of
Myrtle Creek and reined up at the Orer
land hotel kept.by mine host, George
Stephenson, where we ail refreshed tho
inner man with tho good things which
gladden the hungry soul. Hero ye re
porter made it his temporary abode and
bfgan to do the town. Being the first
visit in Eve years wo were favorably im
pressed with the extent and substantial
improvements of the village. We were
informed that there were erected thirteen
new buildings last summer, mostly dwell
ings. Probate Proceedings.
