back door a shingle with a protruding
nail was lying in wait for him, the nail
penetrating his shoe and into his foot a

trifling but the rusty nail proved de

badly swollen foot and leg.

It Needed a Dentist.
Mr. Garretson has the head of a dig
ger squirrel that is a decided cariosity.
The squirrel was killed by Mr. Fran
cisco on hia ranch at Hood River. The
right upper incisor is curled like a
ram's horn, while the left curls inward,
the point striking inside of the mouth.
The right lower incisor also curves tip-
ward striking the roof of the mouth, the
left tooth being absent. Owing to the
shape of the teeth the animal's mouth
was forced open to its widest expanse,
and as it was fat when killed, the query
naturally arises, how did it eat, and
what? Garretson suggests that owing
to the peculiar corkscrew shape of one
tooth, that if it had not been killed in a
temperance community it might be in
ferred that it was a beer drinker, its
tooth being but a wonderful provision of
beneficent nature to enable it to satisfy
its craving, while another gentleman
who examined it thou eh t it must have
lived on bugs and swallowed them
whole, the trituration of the bugs limbs
tickling its stomach so that it laughed
and grew fat. But jests aside, it is a
mystery how it managed to eat, unless
it bad a nursing bottle.
A Wreck and a Death.
The west-bound passenger this m orn
ing was six hours late, owing to a small
wreck a mile and a half beyond Cehlo.
The wreck was caused by the mail car
climbing the rails and going over the
bank. There was a freight car in front
of it, which kept the track all right, so
it is hard to say what caused the mail
car to fly the track. It went down the
bank, but all the other cars remained,
except the baggage car, the front trucks
of which left the rails. There were four
men riding on the front platform of the
mail car, one of whom 'was caught un
der the end of the mail car as it rolled
over, and killed. The dead man and his
brother had been fired from the train at
Grants, but he made a sneak and got
back. The body was brought in and
left at the depot, and was taken charge
of by the coroner.
Notice to Water Consumers.
The charges for patent closets when
used when necessary only, is 25 cents,
but when a constant stream is allowed
to flow, the charge is $5 per month. In
the last two years a large number of
closets have been put in, and in a large
number of them a constant stream is
allowed to flow. The drain on the water
supply has become so great that I am
compelled to enforce the rules, and will
hereafter charge $5 per month for all
closets using a constant stream of water.

Mays & Crowe are again to the front
with a burglary. This morning about
6 o'clock George Obarr, a boy of about
10 years.of age, was going down to the
butcher shop, and as he passed Mays &
Crowe's store saw a man standing at
the front window looking in. As he
came near the man walked towards him,
and as he passed the window naturally
he looked in too. His curiosity was re
warded by seeing a man inside the store
behind the counter, who dodged down
and hid behind the counter. George
went around to the back of the store,
and there saw the same man whom he
had seen in front of the building a few
moments before, and also the man in
side, who bad started out. He ran up
to Marshal Blakeney's house and aroused
him. Blakeney was soon on the ground,
but the men had left, going over to the
beach back of Pease A Mays'. Blake
ney gave- chase, and as the burglars
were loaded down with plunder, having
all their pockets filled with pistols and
knives, he soon overtook them.
One of them proved to be an English
man who was quite tractable, but the
o.ther evidently an American was lull of
fight. He made a pass at Blakeney and
succeeded in scratching his nose, where
upon he was promptly knocked down.
At Stubling's corner the marshal called
Charley Johnson and some others to
assist him, and both burglars were soon
landed in jail. On the way the obstrep
erous one made considerable trouble and
in the sheriffs office began another fight
of which he got considerably the worst
end ot the game. George Obarr for so
young a boy showed remarkably good
judgment, and it is through his prompt
action the men were so quickly caught.
IT astern Oregon Weather and Crops.
The temperature was normal in the
Columbia and Walla Walla valleys and
cooler than the normal east and south of
the Blue mountains. The precipitation
was slightly excessive. Light frost oc
curred on the 14th and 15th.
The showers which occurred during
the past week were frequent and at
times heavy but no damage to grain is
reported. Heading and threshing con
tinued notwithstanding the frequency of
the showers, though the usual progress
could not be made, owing to the grain
being too tough. . Grain continues to
yield well up to expectations, being a
full average in most sections. The price
offered is the only source of contention,
being the lowest in the history of the
country. The potato crop will yield
Threshing is being completed, the
third crop of alfalfa is secured and other
crops are rapidly maturing. The late
fruit crop is being harvested. Since the
rams pastures have improved wonder
fully. Snow has appeared in the mount
ains and frost has come ; but farmers
have been quite successful and are pre
pared for the winter.

"That said deceased came to Lis death
