There will be a grand dance
given at the court house Monday
evening, February 23, 1897, Wash
ington's birthday, under the auspices
of the G. A. R. and W. R. C. of
this place, the proceeds to go to the
relief funds of these two worthy
orders. These orders have been
extending help to the families of
some of their members who have
been visited by sickness, and their
funds have become exhausted.
The object of the dance is a worthy
one, and we believe will be liberally
patronized by our people. Further
particulars will be given later on.

A letter from J. H. Kern, written
from Portland, informs us that the
tug Tonquin is expected to go into
the Siletz next week after the last
load of salmon, at the Kernville
cannery, about 900 cases. The
season's pack has been all sold and
the business for the year has been
satisfactory, all things considered.
He is somewhat discouraged over
the fact that the summer was al
lowed to close without opening the
trail to Kernville from Toledo.
This was a mistake, but we have
full confidence that the trail will be
opened up early next summer.
Mrs. N. P. Stevens met with a
very serious misfortune last Wed
nesday night, a week ago. She
was standing before the fire on a
rug, and was bathing one of her
legs with some liniment for some
slight ailment, when all at once her I
limbs gave way under her and she '
fell to the floor, falling on one of j
her legs in some way as to fracture
it a short distance above the knee.
Drs. Parent and Carter were sum
moned and reduced the fracture.
The chances of recovery are not the
best owing to the patient's age and
general ill health.

Why the Lily Didn't Bloom.
Mr. George Stirapson, the ac
commodating driver of Wells,
Fargo & Co's express, has been
carelully nurturing a plant which
he supposed was a Chinese lily.
It was presented to him by Mr. W.
M. Toner, express messenger on
the Yaquina train, and looked like
a fine specimen. But in fact Mr.
Toner had peeled a big Oregon
onion and nestled it aitistilally
among some pebbles in a glass
bowl. The plant, under George's
lender care, acquired a splendid
growth, but it refused to show any
sign of blooming. A critical ex
amination revealed the true state of
facts, and now George is laying
awake nights to invent a plan for
getting even. Albany Herald.
