There were two or three small sized
battles here yesterday, but nothing more
serious than a black eye or two resulted.
Don't forget the ice cream festival at
the brick school house grounds this
evening commencing at 6 :30. The pro
ceeds will be devoted to paying the ex
penses of Mrs. McGuffey at the Forest
Grove Keeley institute.
The potato crop in the East is way be'
low the average, so far indeed, as to be
little less than a famine in that line,
On this coast the crop is not a first-class
one, but still we will have spuds to
spare. They ought to hold up pretty
well in price.
Saturday evening while the Salvation
Army were conducting their street ser
vices in front of the Baldwin corner,
someone caught hold of the neck of the
banjo. The player thereof, and another
sturdy Salvationist, cangbt him by the
wrists, blew a police whistle and turned
him over to the marshal. The offense,
if offense it could be called, would hardly
warrant the arrest.
A bridge went down with a.freight
train Sunday morning near Colfax.
Sunday evening a special was sent np
from this part of the road, taking der
ricks aud other necessary machinery
and a big gang of bridge carpenters. It
seems like a long ways to send for a
wrecking outfit, but every available
. man, and all machinery on the road had
been gathered here to repair the dam
ages done by the flood. -The
following proclamation was is
sued by Governor Pennoyer: "In ac

Last night about the witching hour of
12, a couple presumably young, leaned
over the front gate of what they sup
posed was the young lady's door yard.
The night was dusky, bordering on
blackness, but those living in the house
heard voices and taking a peep through
. , ... (
the window saw tne outline of a grace
ful female figure, and beside it a man.
There was a gentle but frequent bending
of his head and upturning of hers until
they met and parted, while the still
night air was disturbed with a subdued
cluck each time like that of an old hen
calling her chickens. How long it was
kept up deponent sayeth not, but the
gait they were kissing at was well, it
wasn't the gate they thought it was.
That's all. That's all.

Who Canned the Hale?
It was last Saturday night, in fact it
was past the stilly midnight hour, and
we might as well own up to it, it was
last Sunday morning about half past
two o'clock, when all honest folk were
soundly slumbering, the last of all times
one would naturally suppose for such
deviltry, there was turned loose in our
little city a genuine live canned mule. '
Many was the devout prayer that as
cended to .the Supreme Ruler of the
universe within the space of about one
hour of charivari a la mule power, for a
visitation of divine providence just long
enough and of that quality that would
not only have a quieting influence upon
the nerves of a justly indignant city,
but that an abrupt and speedy judgment
- would perpetrate such an outrage upon
an indulgent community and Uncle A.
Hamilton's mule. The mule, finding a
five gallon can of rocks securely fas
tened to his neatly trimmed caudal ap
pendage, started for the country post
haste, but apparently changed his mind
and continued to serenade the town bv
wards, first taking in Newsome addi
tion, then crossing the : Ochoco, appar
ently hunting the Baptist parsonage.
There he kicked and he brayed, and he
brayed and he kicked. When he had
thoroughly aroused that portion of the
city, he struck out for another, finally
winding up in front of the hotel, where
he - stood and brayed until sun-up.
There are individuals in this world who
really enjoy such a proceeding, but we
are proud to state that such are few in
Prineville, and if such acts continue to
occur, they will be fewer. Prineville
A Dead Indian.
Jim, an aged Indian of the White
Salmon tribe, was found lying dead near
Jewett's place at White Salmon yester
day. The body was found at the foot of
a bluff at least a hundred feet high, and
it was at first supposed he had fallen
over accidentally. ; On examining into
the matter it was found that he had
struck in the top of an oak tree as he
fell, breaking some of the limbs. What
makes the matter look suspicious is that
the body could not have rolled into the
position where it was found, and be
sides footprints led from the road np to
where the body lay, and then on around
to the top of the hill. The place where
the body was found was up the ravine
just east east oi Jewett's place. The
xnaians are convinced tne old man was
pushed over the bluff, and their suspi
cions fall on an Indian named Frank.
