I was the first postmaster and ran the
postof flee for 14 years. One of , my
early neighbors was John Jordan, who
settled here In 1802. ' -
We used to have soma more or less
exciting times In the early days. When
General C. C. Howard was chasing the
Indians eastward ; all of the neighbors
for miles around came to my place for
protection. When the neighbors came we
had no guns. I hitched up a good team
to a light wagon and starting at 4
o'clock In the afternoon I drove to The
Dalles. UVom my placs to The Dalles
Is nearly 80 miles, and when I tell you
that my team was at The Dalles by
daylight you can know that I put them
through at a pretty lively gait When
I applied at, The Dalles, for the guns
they had no authority to give them to
me. I telegraphed to the governor at
Salom. He wired back authority for me
to take 0 guns. The authority,, how
ever, did not authorise the Issuing of
any ammunition, so I spent $100 of my
own money for ammunition, which by
the way, I never recovered

178 miles was heavy grade, with deep
drainage ditches along both sides,' The
roadbed Is from SO to 80 feet wide.'' The
other . 480 miles built are classed as
mountain roads. In the construction of
roads It has been the policy of the coun
ty court to build highways In, the sec
tions of the county where travel Is the
heaviest. It Is only a few years since
the county hid no roads, except those
provided by nature. Today every part
cf the county is tapped by a passable
road. In; many sections where travel is
heavy the roads have been given a coat
of crushed rock or cinders, making them
exceptionally good throughout the entire
year.- . :. :ti V :

there is a great deal of heavy work. It

excitement has been caused In the Ta
bats eountry. south Of Waldport, by the
finding of a. gold ledge of promising
value, which la only a short distance
from the town of Ocean View or Tahats.
This . ledge was discovered by Mr. '
Hurt, he says, over 80 years sgo. but, as
he did not know the values of ore, he '
paid no further atUntlon to tt till, this
summer, when a prospector was looking
over that country. He told the . pros
pector of the find, with the result that
a number of claims have been staked out
and considerable work done. He says
that free gold ess be seen -la the ore
with the naked eye : The country about
this ledge Is heavily covered with vege
