THE GRANT COUHTY HEWS.
November 1, 1SSO.
Nbvmla linft curiosity ii. tho
f.hn))0 of n pup born of u wolfu
mother and a shepherd dou Its
cars fitimd erect and its hair much
resembles fur. This animal istaid
; ti;io quite an aminblu disposi
tion. Just at the present time there
is no JJorth Polo expedition slosh
ing around the Arctic Ocean in
the attempt to reach one point
higher than any previous expedi
tion, but one can t tell when some
crank will hob up and go sailing
away for the purpose of getting
his name into head lines.
William Kelly, a Montana man,
had always declared that ho want
ed to diu in his boots. A few
days ago ho was fatally gored by
an old hiiuo cow, and when dying
lie felt so chagrined about it that
the boys pulled his boots on, fired
their pistols in the air, and made
bis last moments as heroic as pos
sible. A clerk in one of the depart
incuts in Washington has discov
ered that "soldiers in the late war
were killed in their lirst, third and
lifth battles moro than in any oth
er." After a soldier is killed in
threo battles he ought to have ex
perienced enough to escape death
in all the subsequent engage
ments. Ono Rodney, said to be a pay
master in the navy, has beon send
ing out postal curds to the news
papers of the country advocating
the adoption of a constitutional
amendment limiting all ptivatu
fortunes to $10,000,000. Wo
cannot understand just why ho
should address such arguments to
editors. Why should lie limit our
prosperity? While wo are young,
enterprising and ambitious, we aro
against .Mr. Koducy's proposition.
A remarkable state of affairs is
reported from the United States
i'li"t"in li'iiiM' at Oaoopoos lake on
thu Itriti.ili Columbia bonier.
Since the advent of llnrrinou's ad
ministration, no collector has been
stationed there, and now Indians
lntvi taki-n piwii'iwiou of tho log
tni''tniv, hirmerly iwi-upied li
representatives of this govern
ment. J u&t across the I mid, her
majesty's government, has a line
custom houso conducted with all
precision usually found in Iiritish
outpost, Cliiniitnon and opium
are constantly crossing the border
without the least restraint.
In order to settle an old grudge,
an Indian settler named Wankcn
shoo, and a wealthy Mexican nam
ed Juan Vereja, repaired to a
place about six miles from the
town of Taos, j net at tho break of
day. Tho weapons were butcher
knives and the method for light
ing was for each man to submit
his hand to his opponent and have
one linger cut oil, the cutting to
bo done alternately, and the man
who lirst evinced signs of pain
was to bo stabbed to the heart.
The Indian, by the toss, secured
the lirst cut, and deliberately tak
ing the hand of his enemy, with a
quick stroke, served his finger.
The .Mexican never uttereu a
sound. Tho Indian then stretch
ed out his hand, and off ennui his
thumb. This continued in silence
till the Mexican hud lost four fin
gers and the Indian four, when
thu Indian again reached for his
foe's left I in nil. The hitter's sec
ond, being frightoned at the fear
ful flow of blood, sent a bullet
through the Indian's heart.
For some time jmst an old negro
namod Tobias Jackson, living
near Jliriniiighiun, Ala., has been
proclaiming himself as Dariel tho
Prophet, and doing all kinds of
wild ami queer things. Tho other
day ho persuaded thrco young ne
gro men that they were represen
tatives of ShiUlrach, Mcsluiek, and
Abednego, the threo children of
faith who entered the lirey fur
nace. IIo claimed that a fuiiinee,
where iron is melted and aast into
all kinds of" forms, was tho furnace
of NcbiichuducmT, and that thoy
could pass through without thu
smell of tire. Calling themselves
tho threo children of Israel, under
tho influence of their now prophet
tho threo young men deliberately
entered tho gatu of tho cupula of
tho furnace, and rushed headlong
before thoy could bo stopped, into
tho white heat of tho melting iron.
When thoy failed to couio out
Jackson, tho prophet, proclaims
that ho saw them rising in tho air
with thesmoko of tho furnace, at
tended by angels, and said that
thoy would rovisit tho earth again
on the nvxt Sunday.
Dundy is reported as
8!iy"'(i ii unrriiiotis conversa-
i tion which is of doubtful correct
ness, that Judge Terry's widow
would probably die a violent
death. As iN'oaglo has lately re
turned from his tour of "protect
ing" Field, perhaps ho has orders
to shoot the woman on sight.
The eastern election returns
show that Virginia is Democratic
by 110,000 majority. Iowa goes
Democratic by from SJ000to7U00.
Ohio is very close and the proba
bilities are that Campbell, Demo
crat, beats Forakor for governor.
New York hhows heavy Demo
cratic gains; so does New Jersoy.
Maseacliusetts is in doubt but
probably Democratic by a slight
majority. Mohone is snowed un
der forever in Virginia.
The nowspnpers of thu country
havo very properly sat down on
Preacher Talmago's appeal for aid
to rebuild his burned tabernacle.
Talmago's tabernacle has a mem
bership of 1,1130. The diamonds
of his congregation almost suflice
to light up his church. The mem
bership represents millions upon
millions of dollars. This array of
wealth last year gave !U cents per
head to tho homo mistiouary coui
ety, and 11 cents por capita to the
heathen of foreign lauds. This
represents their liberality to oth
ers. Talmngo draws a salary of
$1,000 per month, and makes
$iifi,000 per year from his lect
ures and tcrmou. Vet ho begs
for tho widows' shilling and the
orphant's penny to erect n palueo
for his milliouaries to display
their righes in. Thero is a wealth
of dcvilishues in thii proposition.

At tho Wallowa county term of
court the grand jury returned
"not n true bill" in the case of a
man charged with horsc-Btealing
but added that "they thought he
ought to havo the opKrtunity to
provo his iunocenso." Thoho sev
er. wise men ought to have a ined
al. A largo Northern Central loco
motive got looso at lialtiinore,
Maryland, and nftcr passing
through the tunnel it a terrible
speed, and crossed several crowd
ed thoroughfares, was turned on
to a side track by a sharp switch
man, who took in the situation,
resulting in tho smash-up of sev
eral cars,-knocking a big holo in a
warehouse, and completely demol
ishing the runaway. Loss $10,
000. To add to the misfortunes of
the northwest this year the coun
try seems infested with horse
tlucvos and incendiary fiends.
These villiaus reap their richest
harvests when tho country is suf
fering from drouth and short crops,
and seems to take the greatest de
light in human adversity. For
several weeks past our exchanges,
from different counties, have
chronicled fires and theft of hor
ses, and a doso of cold lead or
hemp-stretching seem almost nec
essary to cure tho evil. Moun
