praise, as it was under her personal di

The Grant County News tells of the
discovery of a whole mountain of as

north of Mt. Vernon, near Mr. Adam
Gordon's residence. Mr. Gordon, Chas.
Angell land O. W. Birge made the neces
sary location of the premises accoiding
to law, and will thoroughly prospect the
premises. The fibre varies from a half
inch to two inches in length, and is of
excellent quality. A band of sheep had
been herded over the mountain, and
where their hoofs had beaten the rock
the threads of the mineial could be
gathered up like so much wool.

Great Fires In The Dalles.
The Dalles has had four great fires.
The largest loss of property and of life,
directly and indirectly, was the fire of
1891, and the one next approaching it in
destructiveness was the fire of 1871.
The fire of August 17, 1871, started at
the old Globe hotel, corner of Second
and Washington streets, and burned all
of the east end ot town as far as Con
don's residence, on the corner of Third
and Laughlin streets, which was saved
by strenous efforts, aided by the big
poplar trees surrounding it, "though it
killed the tress.
The next great fire occurred on Octo
ber 27, 1878. It caught in Coruna's sad
dler shop, on Second street, burning
Wingate's store and residence and all
the property between Federal and Wash
ington streets below Fourth. At this
fire H. J. Waldron received injuries
from over-exertion which caused his
death. He was a pioneer, and at that
time proprietor of a drug store in the
old stone building adjoin:ng the Cosmo
The fire of May 21, 1879, caught in
the Kiss hotel, at that time located just
west of Snipes '& Einersly's drug store.
This fire destroyed everything north and
west below Second street, which includ
ed the Umatilla house, and made partial
inroads to Third street.
The fire of 1888 occurred on the same
day of the year as In 1891 September
2d. It caught in Sam Klein's shop,
and spread Eouthward, burning the old
Baptist church building, which was then
occcupied by a grocery store, the Con
gregational 'church, Wingate's ware
house and all the buildings between
Second and Third, and in places beyond
Fourth street. It was checked just be
fore reaching Ward & ' Kern's livery
The great fire of 1891 caught in
Skibbe's house. A light wind from the
east quickly carried it onward and
within a half hour it was feeding on
three streets at once, making a clean
s peep as it went of everything below the
bluff. It burnt to Pease & Mays' corner,
but took the city's best block, the hand
some Vogt building, a disaster that will
never be fully made up. On Third
to JoBh French's, on Fourth to George
Ruch's and on Fifth to the Episcopal
church. Many fine residences were de
stroyed, as well as beautiful trees and
gardens. Most unfortunate of all, two
lives were lost at this fire, Mike Dia
mond having been burned and utterly
consumed, and Joe Fitzgerald having
died soon after from burns received dur
ing the fire.
