Mr. Dixon, an old citizen of Washing
ton county and a resident of Forest
Grove, has been at work for "a score of
years on an air ship. He has so far per
fected his machine that it is exhibited
to friends, and the Hillsboro Independ

next week's issue.
H. S. Mercer, of Independence, says
the West Side, has invented a machine
for making gas, which he claims is abso
lutely safe, very inexpensive and will
burn without smoke. He thinks he has
a ,' fortune in the invention and intends
patenting it at once. He has a small
model at work, which is a success.

continent, Td"OW; a hopeless, raving,
aping, screaming -maniac in the Stock
ton insane asylum in California, with
thongs about her ankles to restrain her
from kicking her .unfortunate mates to
death. Physically, Mrs. Terry is about
the same now as she was during the
period after the assassination of Judge
Terry. Her face is somewhat thinner
and harder than it was then, but she is
strong and hearty. She has changed so
little in appearance that any one would
recognize her instantly in a crowd. Her
hair, which, by the way, has not
changed the lightest in color, is quite
long, reaching almost to the waist.
Mrs. Terry wore a gingham wrapper,
apparently fresh from the wash. Her

Koshland Bros. Fall.
Koshland Bros., dealers in wool,
bides and furs, the largest and oldest
wholesale house on the. Pacific coast,
failed yesterday at Portland. The firm
was one of more than twenty years'
standing. The wholesale house, at 10
North Front street, and the entire ware
house holdings are now in the posses
sion of the Bank of British Columbia,
their only creditors
Last evening Mr. Koshland made the
following statement in regardto Ihe
failure: "My business is a total wreck.
The trouble has been coming on for the
past year. Everthing in our line has
been on the downward tendency. sWe
had a big stock of goods ou hand which
was sold at a loss. We were deeply in
debt to the Bank of British Columbia,
and as we could not hold up any longer
we simply turned ove. to them our en
tire business, which will be sufficient to
satisfy their claims. The bank is our
only creditor, and outside of it we don't
owe any man a dollar. Our losses in
the fire at Boston a year ago were pretty
large, and that hastened the precipita
tion of the trouble." -

It is probable, also, that a board of
health will be appointed, from the in
terest manifested at the last regular
meeting. In reference to this matter a
complaint has been made about privy
vaults in the west part of town; which
demands some sort of action, as it con
stitutes a great menace to the health of
those who live near them. The ordi
