A Royal Brute.
A year ago when the aooonrcement of
the engagement of Qaeen.Wi!belmina to
Prince Hmry was made tbe papers were
filled wi.b glowing acconuts of the excel
lent qualities of tbe yourg Queen. be
was portrayed as the pospesor of all tbe
virtues tbat go lo male op Christian
womanhood. Her name was the syi o-
oy m ol sweetness, gentleness, love snd
parity. Tbe story of Lei married Ufa is

young Queen waa humilated before the

band. '
It appears tbat at a public dinner the
Queen was bmt by ton 8 inattention on
ibe part of the Priccr, end spoke to him
aboot it. Prince Henry retorted offen
sively, whereupon M.jor Von Tela made
a remaik regarding tbo impropriety of
tbe Prince O n sort's conduct. A quarrel
followed between tbe officer snd tbe
Prince, who bad been freely di inking and

It is too bad tbat the hopes of a pore
and bsppy life should be blasted by each
an incompatible marriage as this.
'Joaphine County was named in honor
of Josephine Rawlins, a young lady who
came to Altbouse with her father, during
the early rash of goldeeekers in 1851.
Miss Rawlins afterward married Hairy
O'Kelley, of Yreka, and an attempt was
made to change the name of Joe ephins
to O'kelley, bat the project failed to car
ry, and Josephine it will remain, being
tbe only county with a teminiue name in
the elate.
In regard to the naming of Grant 's
Pass there is some dispute snd difference
ot opiuioa, but those who are entitled to
know claim tbat the town was named in
honor of General Grant, who stopped at
the little trading post, consisting of a few
log houses and situated at the end of tbe
rugged pass tbat leads through the
mountains northward from ibe Rogne
River Valley. Grant stated during his
visit tbat this pass through the mount
alna was tbe only teastible mate for a
rod. Alter that tbe trading poet was
known as "Grant's Pass."
The story connected with tba naming
of GraveCrsr k. in the northern part of
tbe country, is a pathetic one. The old
Oregon trail over which traveleta passed
going from California to Vancouver, led
acroee this creek. In 1846 a family by
tbe rsms ot Crowley among whom wass
daughter, Martha Leland Crowley, were
beiog piloted over tbe trail by the Ap
plegate brothers, noted guides of Ibe
early davs. Before reaching tbe crees the
daughter became very ill and died just
aa tbe stream was crossed. Tbe family
were at a loss to know what do with tbe
bo I v. Tber at last decided to bury her
by tbe creek. A wagon box was need st
a coffin and in order to ob;iterate all signs
ol a bomsn grave from the Ireacberoos
Ind tans, the cattle the stt!tB wre
driving with them were corralled over the
spot for a day. Tbe sorrowlal family
proceded on tbeir way and a few months
later sent a party baca over tbe trail to
care for the grave, but tbe Indians bad
discovered it in spite of tbe precautions
tsken and bad neartbed tbe remains and
scattered tbe bones about tbe pit.
Leland, tbe little rairosd station on
tbe creek, is named also In honor of Mies
Crowley her maiden name being Martha
Leland. Observer.
