Rev. O. D. Taylor received a 'letter
Saturday from a lady named Games of
Portland, stating that two little orphan
girls, one aged 6 years and the other 9,
had been left in her charge by the death
of their parents ; that they are of an ex
cellent family, and is desirous of finding
homes for them. Full particulars as to
the children can be obtained by calling
on Mr. Taylor.
Rockland Boy, whose leg was injured
in the races last week, was brought
down from the fair grounds yesterday

tion was reached. Mr. Mclnerny has
hopes of his complete recovery ; hopes
that we hope will be gratified.

Last evening after the crowd which
attended the Wizard Oil concert had
dispersed, a number of joung people
laid siege to the hall, and a very pleas
ant impromptu party was given com
plimentary to Miss Shulthis, who is
visiting in the city. With such music
as Prof. Birgfeld, accompanied by Mr.
Burchstorf on the violin, can discourse,
and a merry party, bent on making the
most of the opportunity for fun, it could
not fail to be a success.
A Good Flan.
The new plan for worrying train rob
bers devised by the Wells-Fargo express
company, has been put in operation
upon the through trains between ' San
Francisco and Portland. The burglar
proof safes in the express cars are fitted
with detachable knobs for the combina
tion locks and the . express messengers
who travel in the cars are unable to open
the safes, not being furnished with the
knobs or the combinations.- Local agents
of the company at various stopping
places on the road have the combination
and turning knobs and are charged with
the duty of opening and closing the
safes, from which are taken the valuable
packages billed to the place of opening
and for places intermediate between that
place and the next place where an agent
has the combination.'- On the San
Francisco-Portland trains the safes are
opened only at four places between the
terminals Sacramento, Redding, Ash'
land and Roseburg.
The Kins' Daughters.
The King's Daughters have many calls
made on them for assistance by those
who are worthy and needy. They can
find use for clothing of all kinds, and
suggest that those who have gaiments
of any kind which they will no longer
use give them to the poor, through the
direction of the society. Garments
which are ' discarded and will no longer
be used by the owners, can be made to
do great good, and this is especially so
now that winter is coming on. All offer
ings sent to Mrs. Brooks, Mrs. Harris or
Mrs. Willerton wil be turned over to
the society by them. Now do not think.
this is meant for someone else, but look
into your closets and see what you have
that will be of use to the society in their
good work. . - ' . .

Fraser Lodge, No. 16, Independent
Order of Good Templars, had a very in
teresting meeting last Saturday evening,
with quite a number of members present ;
notwithstanding the busy season, and
the great distance some of our members
come we have a good attendance at each
meeting. Last quarter the average at

still increasing in membership, there be

two the meeting before. We have now
membership of sixty-five in good
The lodge gave several entertainments
last winter and will give another Oct.

social. The ladies are to bring aprons,
not hemmed, with needles and thread,
the gentlemen lead pencils, not sharp

The Express Matter.
The express robbery continues to be a
topic of absorbing interest, and all kinds
of surmises, wild and mayhap other
wise, are made concerning the probable,
possible, or impossible parties who
might, or could be connected with it.
Those who think that it was local talent
that performed the work, are met with
the question, "Where did the sharpened
drill come from." If it was made here
it was made by a mechanic, for the
workmanship is good ; but if made here,
the man who made it would soon iden
tify it. On the other hand, if the rob
bery was executed by strangers, how
could they get away with the swag.
The detectives are of course saying
nothing, so what theories they may
have found out, if anything, are un
known. All that is definite is that the
money is gone, and that whoever took
it made an excellent job, leaving no sign
by which a cine can be obtained.
The following notice has been handed
us for publication :

ary trip to High Prairie, White Salmon,

10 :30 for his beloved Germans, and at 7
o'clock p. m. for the Scandinavians. A
cordial welcome to everyone."
