CAMAS VALLEY tSKIBMIMI. .
Caruart valley, r.uteJ at the source of
the Cjinii!e river, '2') mi'.aa fuiithweal of
Koeehnrg, was the ecar.e of s. lively skir
mish one beautiful iiiorr.ing tc the early
spring of '3i. Ten of our bja were lo
cated at II. Mai t.nuale'8 houee, which
was used f. a fort for ! tiie valley.
Daring the niht a lurge buud of In
dians surrounded the fort with a view of
murdering all they cjuid, and stealing
stock. While a porlioi of the red devils
were dodging Inland trees shooting at
uh every chance, the otln;r were
"rounding up" all the bortes and cattle
that the valley contained. Diring the
hottest of the light the officer in charge
saw about a do.en Indians at a distance
of near 430 yards away. Knowing that
there was but one gnu in the' fort that
would do execution nt that distance, tbe
owner whs ordered to a cbidtered position
cutt-ide, where tie could have a gc 1 op
portunity tj ui:ikv a hi: nl'.ot, which he
did. I wiil liii-l from giving thiHsoi-d:t-r
name, for he is a very las!sliil( ?
old fellow, and to nx his canit: in the
Ouaid would he rure to lirin.' blu-lic) to
Lis weather-beaten face.
When the Irnlians had Kecurc'rl all the
hotfea and cattle in the valley Cexuept
OUB JOrr. belonging to William P. Day,
hich, during the 3gl t ran to the lort
anj Klla taken iueide) they left
alorm a'mouutain trail leadiog to the
uieadown on Kfgue fiver. We soldier
hove were eel afojt also. One uf our boys
" . . . . -,-. - ,.
was men eeni io ioranig 'jihhp. nu.te
Ciufct of Company B. wa then stationed.
Cttp'uin Buoy soon arrived with rein
forcementp, and following tho Indian
trail came li a place where they bad
cooked and eaten a hasty breakfast. An
Indian riding a mule and left as a rear
guard, was killed, his mule also. A
running fight of several miles ensued,
but it was not known that any more In
dians were killed. There was no one
killed or wonmk.l on our eide. But no
doubt other:!, with the writer, recollect
very distinctly the xip i f the bullets.
While in a reminiscuut mood I will
relate an iucident that occurred in our
company while encamped at Ibe (arm
of L. D. Kent, on the S juth Unipo.ua
river, in the vicinity of the town of
Dillard. bnt on the opposite Bide of the
river. Mr. Kent, as was the fashion in
those days and probably is yet, was the
father of a number of buxom daughters,
who, with many- other maiden qualitiee,
delighted in "tipping tbe light fantastic
I t.w " inmitlimiM dancimF. It is
t-circeiy ueceesary to tay that in Com
pany B were a number oi boys who took
delight in Ibis favorite pat-lime,
One day Captain Buoy had business
at Roeebnrg which detained hin over
uight. Before starting he called tbe
men on parade and in language, as near
as the writer Jcau recollect, aJdiested
them about as follows: "Boys, business
requires my absence from camp to
night, and bsforo leaving I wish to ay
that it is not necessary to inform yon
that for a number of evenings some of
you have been in the habit of going to
Mr. Kent'f, and have danced so much
I am sura the girls are tired. It is my
urgent request that thia evening, at
least, you remain in camp and give the
girls a rest." To show Low much thia
request was heeded, tbe sequel will
show. During tbe day one of the sons
of MrKent cime into camp and in
vited certain ones of the boya to come
to the home in the evening lor tbe
regular dance. One of tbe boya,
Robert Clark, an inveterate dancer,
as omitted from tbe list of tbe
invited ones, at w hich he waa not at
all pleaeed. Clark had a messmate
and a valued friend who, for certain
reasons I will in tbe present instance,
for brevity's sake, name Mos. II.. al
though I fail to find such a name on our
muster roll. Mos. H. said to Clark:
"Leave tbe matter to me, and about the
time they get to dancing in good earnest,
we will biing tbe boys out of the bourc
much faster than they went in," to
which Clark agreed. About 8 o'clock
Mos. II. passed out by one of tbe guards.
and told biru if he beard any firing going
on op the river in a t-hort lime, not to
pay any attention to it. In leu lime
than is requited to write this,
bang! bang!! went a heavy load
ed gun, also what seemed like the
Indian yells. If t' e reader has never
beard tbe yell o a savage let him
retire to to.uo secluded place and
while striking his lips in a rapid man
ner with his open hand, let him yell at
tbe top of bis voice, then he may
catch my meaning. Before the racket
above the camp bad begun, Clark had
placed himeelf near the door of the
house, and at the first shot opened tbe
dcor and yelled Indiana! If ifhad been
leal in place of a false attack on the
camp, it could not have caused more
consternation. LieulcuantMoon was in
the crowd, and as the boys climbed over
each other to see who could reach camp
first, be continued to urge them to
"Keep cool, boys! Keep cool!" A tiny
branch ran between the bouee and camp,
with but a small log for a bridge, and in
to tbi "Jonathan" (Lieutenant Moon )
with some others tumbled pell mell.
Tben tome of tbe boys advised the lien
tenant to "keep cool." When the dan
cers reached camp they were greeted
with a hearty laugh by tboce ,wbo had
remained. When the captain returned

OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL LIBRARY.
Interest in tbe Popular Pupil Contest
Increasing $ jo Already Paid In.
Most bays and irirls are fond of leading
a bright, interesting Look. Every boy
and girl should read from one to ton
gcod bcoke each year. But many par
ent are unable to furnish tbe girls and
boya with new bo-ks, hence the neces
sity for a library.
Books often exert a stronger infiueuce
upon children than even parents or
teachers. A boy will often question the
statement of bin parent or teacher, but
rarely does he doubt his favor it Look.
If tbe tone of tbe book be elevating tbe
influence of Ibe boik will strengthen tbe
Shrewd bunnesa men in evei town or
city realiz3 that it is cheaper to main
tain gjod scbcslt, and to provide them
with gtxl libraties, tban to supFjrt
police officers, jails and court i with
wbicb to punish tbe crimes ot those who
have no love for schools or bcoke.
Mtiy schemes have been need t
raise money for library purpesea. In
Roseburg the tochers have decided to
try a pspular pupil contest. When the
plan wsi explained to the pupils they
became very enthusiastic and will re
main so until a good collection of read
able be oka have bc;n secured for their
use. The patrons and friends of tbe
school are assisting the pupils most gen
erously. Many of our best citizens have
expressed their sympathy for this move
ment. If it is right for boya aud girls to read
good books, it n right that tbey should
make some effort to get these books. It
ie true that they may become a little
excited in carrying on this- work. But
what girl or tov would not become en
thused at tbe prospect of a library filled
with briitbt, new booki ii pretty bind
intrs. The method adopted for raising money
has earned some discussion. It is cer
ta'nly most successful. Pupils are cell
ing voles for their favorite pupil at tbe
rate of one cent each. A email prize
consisting of be ks has t en offered to
the winner of the contest. Of course, all
pupils do not expect to win the prire,
bnt all do expect to aid the library fund.
Tbe contest is still open, and will re
main open until 12 M. Saturday, Nov.
11th. The pupils expect to raite at least
'r ) by that time. With this amount
or more good books will bo pur-Lu-:9d.
There are now over 4C0 pupils
enrolled. $100 means and avtrage ex
Dense of twenty-five cents for each pupil.
For this twenty-five cents, each pupil
will have the opportunity to read the
entire 100 books.
A committee has been appointed to
count tbe votes. The committee con
sists of the fallowing named teachers:
Miss Elizabeth Pairott, Miss lv;ho Gad
die, Miss Elva Galloway and Miss Lena
Willis, with Miss Willis as treasurer of
the money paid in. When the content is
closed, a report of all money received
will be published with the name of the
winner of tbe contest.
Tbe pupilB?and teachers will chc jao a
list of booki. This list will bo Bent to
several publishing houses for prices, and
tbe t3st and cheapeet books will be j pur

school are urged to assist tho pupils in

What Scrofula Is.
Scrofula is a disease as old as antiquity.
It bas been banded down for genera
tions and is tbe same today as ia
early times. It ie emphatically a di-
eeas's of tbe blood, and tbe only way to
cure it is by pntifying tbe blood.
Tbat is just waat Hood's Sarsaparilla
does in every case wbere it is given
a fVtbful trial. It eradicates all iropuri"
tie from tbi blood, and cures tbe
sores, boils, pimples and all forms of
skin disease das to ecrofu'a taints in
tbe blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla bas won
tbo grateful praise of vast numbers
of people by its grand and complete
cures. LHo't allow scrofula to de-
op in your blood. Cure it at ouce by
taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.
