. W. A. Campbell Almost Drowned..
About 4 o'clock last Tuesday evening
W. A. Campbell, the well known life in
euranne man, and whohaa many friends
in The Dalles, had an experience in
Reck Creek that he will not soon for
get, says the Heppner Times, and it
wasn't altogether funny either. He
had come from Condon and was on his
way to Heppner, crossing Sock creek at
the old French ratiGh when that stream
was on a tear. It is the most treacher
our stream in Gilliam county, bnt .Mr.
Campbell would have made it across all
right bad his team not balked riubt in
the middle of it. The creek was almost
bank full, and when the water came
rushing against them the horses reared
and broke the tongue. This turned the
buckboard over and horses, buggy and
all swept down the swift current, Mr.
Campbell being under the water himself
a good share of the time, barely escap
ing with his life, in several instances.
Finally he jumped into the water and
scrambled to the shore. -
The horses, after being washed down
a quarter of a mile finally freed them
selves from the buggy and got ashore.
The vehicle kept pn swimming but
lodged againBt a big rock about a mile
below the croesing. Messrs. H. H. Neal
and Rufo Blace, besides a lot of sheep
shearers, were soon on the scene and the
horses, buggv and driver were brought
face to face again. The tongue was
spliced with ropes and straps and Mr.
Campbell continued his journey Hepp
nerwards, arriving here safely last
night, considerably mangled but still
prepared to do ensinees. Oue of bis
Talises, containing a camera and a lot of
valuable notes and checks, had jumped
overboard, and was found a mile below
in a drift with considerable damage
done to the contents.

Development Since Pioneer Days
Future, One of Grcfttntiftt
The death, of Donald . McKay r. the
famous Indian scout, brings vividly to
mind the hardships and disadvantages
of the early settlers of Oregon. He waa
a brother to Dr. W. C. McKay who died
in 1892. Dr. McKay was well known by
all pioneers in The Dalles, having lived
here for a number of years. He wae the
son of Thomas McKay, who came to
Oregon in 1811 with the Aetor expedi
tion. His mother was a Chinook Indian
woman far above the average. Such
men as these, enduring the hardships
and privations of early pioneer days,
have lived to see Oregon one of the
finest states of the union.
The present generation have no con
ception of what difficulties were en
countered bv the early settlers. Today
we live in the . world, with all thej
advantages of modern times. Nut many
yetre ago Oregon . was barely known,
while today she Is one of the foremost
in war or peace, agriculture, mining,
farming and in fact nearly all industries
that are of the present day.
The coat of arms of Oregon displays
an emigrant wagon, a deer and an
expanse of ocean bearing on its breast
a steamer. - Below are discovered a sheaf
of wheat, a plough, a' rake and a pick.
The crest is the American eagle with
the motto: "She flies with her own
wings." . That tells the whole story, and
it needs no further explanation. . . ,
Brave settlers advancing into this
strange territory of which the poet
wrote "Where rolls .the Oregon and
hears no sound save its own dashings,"
have made it one that the United States
may well be proud of, with handsome
public buildings, prosperous cities,
echools, colleges and universities. Her
volunteers are of the bravest and most
gallant that entered the army to uphold
the nation, and have brought much
credit to their state. The "Oregon,"
the greatest battleship afljat has glori
ously upheld the dignity of the state
rom which she derives her name.
Oregon has advanced wonderfully in
the past fifty years. To realize this we
must remember that in 1848 Daniel
Webster, who. was opposed to expansion,
said that Oregon was so far off that it
never could be governed by the United
States, and that a delegate to congress
could not reach Washington until a year
after the expiration of his term. Note
the change" today. We can reach oar
capital within 8 week and should com
munication be wanted it can be had
within a few minutes.
Oregon ia larger than the whole of
New England, and has a seacoast 330
miles long. Its mountains and scenery
are sublime, an artist s dream. Her
forests are almost incalculable, while her
valleys are astonishingly fertile. The
grand Columbia running along her
border has la navigable length of 1200
miles. The metropolis of the state is
Portland, destined to be a great city
It is situated on the beautiful Willam
ette, of which -the poet, Sam Simpson,
says : ' ' " " ' '' ' - " v
From the Cascade's frozen gorges, -
Leaping like a child at play,
Winding, widening through
Bright Willamette glides away ;
Loveiy river, ;
Softly calling to the sea;
Time that scars us.

Leaves no track or trench on thee!"

Met a feller t'other morn in'
Most amusln' sort o' cuss;
Hed a cur'us style about him :
Cert't'y could'nt well be wuss.
I says: "Where you hall f'm pardner?"
An he smiles In knowin' way,
An replies in forren lingo:
"Porto Rico, U. S. A."
Seen a feller down on Broadway,
With a shockin' head o' hair,
An' a lot o tropic garments
An' a most outlandish air,
"Whur's he from?" a feller shouted,
But before we'd time to say.
This yere heathen turned an answered:
; "Honolulu, D. S. A."
Met a feller yere on Olive,
With a somber-e-ro on;
Had a lot o'-shagsry whiskers;
Nearly all his clothing gone. "
Stopped an asked me for a quarter;
Says: "My home is faraway."
"Where you from?" The varmint answered:
Santiago, u. a. A.
Seen a feller at the Southern,
wno a neavy iron oox;
Had a top coat lined with bearskin,
Wore a dozen pair o socks.
Sized him up to be a miner,
Judgln' by his awk'ard way;
Seen him write in big cha-rac-ters;
"Circle City, U. S. A.
Seen a saddle-colored heathen, . -
Wearin' earings in his nose;
Linen cuffs around his ankles;
Most indecent lack of clothes.
"Where'd this heathen guy spring frum?"
I inquired in lofty way;
An' he had the nerve to answer:
"Frum Manila, C. S. A.
"Gee!" I says, "I never heard of
These yere cannybuls before!"
Air these heathens to be voters? ,-
Will ye stan' fur any more?
Next you know, you ask a feller
Where he's frum, and he will say,
With a lordly kind o flourish:
"All Creation, U. S. A."
While we don't make much pretention
In our quiet sort o' way,
Still we like that last tburt sentence
Fits us to a t-y-tay.
