undei'htaud petitions are being circu

lino would bo a great convenience to
minors along tho Middle Fork, and
tho Nkws hopes to see this enterprise
succeed,
'o can inform our readors that tho
predicted end of tho world did not oc
cur last .Monday as advertised, but the
mundane sphere is still doing business
at the old stand. In tho event of
such an occurrence soon, however, tho
public may rely upon tho Nkws to
give a full and unbiased account of
the entire proceeding.
Tho ollicors of tho Hums land office
held an examination lately of appli

tho examination entitling them to ap

A destructive firo broke out at Itel
shaw's place and raged along the .John
Day river a few days during the week
which burned considerable fencing
and a large amount of pasture land
was runileied woithluss. Mr. Itelshaw
had a patch of mustard that he in
ttmdud to bum, and during his ab
sence his son thought he would do the
mustard burning. lie applied the
torch, and in n moment tho entire
country was ablaze. Tho wind as
blowing from tho haystacks, or they
would have burned. As it was, the
lire reaohrd the brush and timber
along the river, and everything in its
course was swept away. It spread
for a considerable distance up and
down tho stream More its course
was chocked. We have not heard
tho actual loss estimated,
Tho summary of the assessment of
Grant county as it appears in another
column, in some respects shows a more
complete assessment than last year,
although of course tho total does not
reach a corresponding figuio. There
is a' gain in land of 0,020 acres, not
withstanding llarnoy county got away
with two-thirds of thu territory of
Grant. Town lots jump in voluo
from $7,1211 last your to $10,200 this
your, and we lost hums too. Monoy,
notes and accounts und shares of
stock, etc., woro assessed last year at
$:t.ri9,00'2, and this year they foot up
$128,088, a gain of $08,'J20, which
shows that tho money was not nil in
Jlurnoy county or was not assussed.
The discrepancy in the tax roll this
year ooiiiarod to that of last year is
owing to tho diminished numl-er of
cattle, horsos and liiuhw and swine.
Household furniture, carriages and
watches, etc., also rated higher then
than now, Kvurything else oxcept
tho poll tax shows a gain, oven after
the division of tho county. Tho in

of achievements has given him a
