Mr. Phil Brogan'e band of sheep ha
adually been growing leas since they
were poisoned last Friday, until now 500
are dead. No trustworthy clue has yet
been secured as to the identity of the
poisoner. ThenSght previous to the find
ing of the first dying sheep a stranger had
visited the camp, and after exchanging
a few remarks,- took . a circular route
toward town. This individual may
have scattered the poison, but his iden
tity is now lost.. The poisoner and hiy
motive are yet problematical. 1 x '
Mr, Victor Schmidt lost his goN
watch a few days ago from an uDner
pocket in his clothing, and was fortunate
enough to find it again yesterday. He
had about given it up, and made up his
mind it had been stolen by a pickpocket,
but kept looking for it wherever be hap
pened to be. For several days the
watch has laid snugly concealed in the
grass a few inches from the sidewalk
below the court house, having fallen
from his pocket while he was in a stoop
ing attitude, and. he 'discovered H yes-

Skamanta's County Clerk.
The trial of Robert Carr, county clerk
and auditor of Skamania county, Oc
curred Friday and 'Saturday .before
Miller, 'at Stevenson j" the
seat. Attorney A. . S. Ben-
nett . appeared for
the . defendant
nd D. O. Bollea
for the prosecution, The jury were out
only an hour when they returned with
a verdict of "not guilty." The offense
in Mr. Carr's case seems to have been
small. Skamania ia a pioneer county,
having but little taxable property. The
position of county clerk is far from be
ing a sinecure. The salary is but $50
a month, and the duties are so manifold
that he employs a deputy, paying him
$35 a month. The clerk drew, some
warrants in payment for work, which
be was unauthorized to do by a strict
construction of the law, but his' motive
was shown to be all right. The charge
was embezzlement. . ''.'"

said that the jury might return a' ver
dict for the gross ' amcpnt of damages
awarded, including the. value of the land
taken, injuries resulting from the con

yesterday, was bitten. by a rattlesnake.
The snake struck her in the hand, the
fangs entering in two places.. A9 quick

prevent circnlation of tbe poison, and
she was made to drink about a quart of
whisky. Dr. Hollister, was then sum

medical antidotes and canterized the
wound. The young lady is all right to

Boy Turner was arrested yesterday by
Deputy -Sheriff Kelley or "swindling,
and is now in the county jail. . It seems
that Joe Chapman Becured possession of
forty-three coyote scalps through .Jailer
Fitzgerald, who gave them to Chapman
Lto. destroy. Chapman treasured .them
up till he got out of jail, and in some
way made a dicker of them to Turner.
All Turner had to do was to swear that
he killed them, find, a witness to his
own identity, and bis claim for bounty
money was good. He made the affidavit;,
swearing that he killed the coyotes near
Kingsley. and filed it at-the clerk's
office, along with a witness affidavit by
Joe Carey. He then .went to Kuck's
and made an arrangement to buy some
saddles, giving' Kuck an order on the
county clerk for tbe-money. Deputy
Sheriff Kelly in the meantime had in
cidentally seen the affidavit, and being
an old . resident of Kingsley, thought
forty:three coyotes- a remarkable clean
up for that neighborhood." It led to an
investigation, with the result that he
apprehended his man, who was already
starting for the country with the sad
dles.' Carey will be held as a witness.
Chapman is not to be found.

Oregon State Camp Meeting.
The Oregon State camp meeting of the
Methodist "Episcopal , church, will be
held at Canby, Or., on their beautiful
grounds, beginning July 14th and con-
Kinaing until July 27th. The grounds
will be suitably arranged: and every
thing in good condition for an enjoyable
and profitable meeting. ' By the order of
the association the grounds will- be en
closed with a barbed wire fence, and in
stead of spoiling the Sunday services by
.drumming for mormy "to pay expenses, a
small Tee of 10 cents for single admission
will be taken at the gate. A season
ticket for a single individual, good dur
ing the. camp meeting,' can be had for
50 cents, ..and ' a. family ticket -" $1.
This includes all . campers upon the
ground without any additional expenses
to themselves and family. The board
ing house will be fitted up with care and
let to responsible persons, who' will fur
nish desirable board at reasonable rates.
The date ia later than usual, but after
consultation with interested parties it
was thought best, owing . to the back
wardness of the season, the Chautauqua
assembly in session so near to ns and
other considerations, to fix the date a
few days later than' usual. As far as
possible we. want to 'make this a real old
fashioned Methodist camp meeting;
where sinners are converted and believ
ers sanctified. Surely there are hun
dreds of needy souls among us who are
longing for a deeper Christian experi
ence and in. thus coming together with
one accord eternity alone will reveal the
gDod accomplished. - Let all Methodists
take a deep interest in thia camp meet

your neighbors especially the uncon
