. The storms of last week caused 1
some severe losses to stockmen,, in '
our county, particularly where the
stock of feed was a little short. . J.
S. Copeland lost eight head of
cattle, Frank Stanton lost some,
and several other . losses are re
ported. It seems that there is less
nutriment in the outside feed this
winter than ever before, probably
by reason of the rainy season.
M. T. Whitney, the postmaster
and; merchant of Chitwood, has
invented a gopher exterminator
that promises to be a success. It
is simple and inexpensive, being
only a little piece of fuse with an
explosive at the end that generates
carbonic acid gas when it explodes.
This fuse is inserted in the gopher
hole, set fire and the hole covered
so that the gas caunot escape.
Soon there is an explosion, the
hole is filled with gas generated
thereby, and all the squirrels,
gophers and anything else alive
in that hole is soon sleeping the
long, long sleep.
- County Superintendent Irvin de
seives much credit for his energy
and progressiveness in securing the
creation of a summer school for
teachers at Newport, mention of
which is made elsewhere. The
work is a grand one and one that
the county may well be proud of.
Mr. Irvin has succeeded in interest
ing prominent educators in the
.movement, and thus the success of
the school is guaranteed. With
State Supirintendent Irwin, Prof.
Chapman, Prof. Campbell, Presi
dent Miller, and other energetic
and progressive educators pushing
the matter, the summer school is
ibound to be a success.
Gowell buys and sells everything.

the old pocket piece that people
have possessed for some time.
One of fheui found its way into
Lester Waugh's hands last Friday.
It is a silver piece, a little larger
than a dollar. It bears date of
1855, and the side of the date is the
inscriptions "1 R. Sp.," "Rattoch
Sauning" and on the obverse side
a part of the inscriptions are worn
out, but the words "Veriges Norr.
Goth. Och. Kuning," can be
deciphered. The edge is not
milled, but instead some letters
have been stamped thereon. Mr.

An idea of what may be done
with bees in this country can be
gleaned from the following ex
perience of Mr. J'.-W. O'Neel, liv
ing on Mr. Wade's place, last
year. He started in with four
hives of bees in the spring. Dur
ing the summer seven new swarms
were cast from these, and in ad
dition thereto Mr. O'Neel took
from the bees and sold 180 pounds
of good honey for which he re
ceived about an average of 14 cents
per pound. His total outlay out
side of his work caring for the bees
was about three dollars, while the
income was about $25, leaving a
net gain of $22, besides the in
crease of seven new swarms, of a
reasonable value of $14. This was
in one of the worst seasons for bees
that we have had for years.
For bee supplies call on Gowell.

State Superentendent G. M. Irwin,
Presidents C: H. Chapman, H. B.
Miller and P. L. Campbell spent
several days this week in Newport,
cotisMe'riiig'Hhe advantages of that
place for itSijtocation, and; evidently
they .were wpM pleased, as they have
made a formal proposition to., the
people of this county: 'That they
will act as a "board of educational
control" witU Superintendent S.
G. Iryin'as an advisory member.
Provided, the business and finan
cial management will be directed
oy tne pcopifi t.iflncoln county,,
and. that the business management
furnish suitable " buildings. The
course will include in its several
departments, music, art, household
economy, geology, biology, history
and economics, botany, language,
elocution, physical culture, teachers
review, English literature, peda
gogy, bible study, mathametics,
astronomy, etc. These several
departments will be , 'taught by
specialists in their work, selected
from all parts of the state. What
is asked by these gentlemen is so
insignificant, in. comparison to the
benefits, the school will be to the
people of our county, that we feel
that the school is already our insti
tution, bringing to our children and
our people a degree of intelligence
and refinement that could . be se
cured to us in no other way. The
thousands of people that it will
attract are all consumers of the
products of our county, furnishing
a high cash market for all first
class produce. It is estimated that
the cost of the buildings required
will be about $2,500. The land
will be donated no doubt. The
amount of money expended by the
patrons of this v institution every
year in our county will amount to
$10,000 or $12,000. This will be
a sure cure for much of the reported
hard times. This will be a great
step in making Lincoln county an
educational center of which Oregon
and the Pacific coast will be proud.
Every person in the county should
assist this enterprise, and we are
confident they will.
