Kn. Knrron: leaving F.ugono City tho
' ad enters a broken, hilly country, mil
atoning aronnd a mountain spur follows, up
jibe valley of tlio Coast Fork of tho WH'iam-
tto ilver. This valley Is narrow but con
tains qutto a largoquantlty of tine narlo'iltur
l laud, mostly undor cultivation. Tailed
in by mountain and traversed by tl'io rail
-road, It Is very pleasant valley. Cottage
Grove Is -22 miles tip tho Coast Fork from
'Eugene. It is In a pretty Rood place, and wilt
makoqiiltc a bur); if tho cltfcitis m.iiiAgo It
right. This place contain about flft'wu fam
ilies, a postofllce, storo or two, flouring mill,
tc. Tho Coast Fork valleyo nro spB rsely t

Is enterable land to bo found lioro that Is do
sirable. The road Is very Rood all ths way
up this stream, except in a few places. There
Is spleridld timber in largo ntt'tHy, nni1 un
limltod water power to saw it. Six credit
miles above Cttltago Grove, Mr. C. Johnson
has found on bis place n voin of coal, a samplo
of wbloh I send, but lias nst prospocted It
sufficiently to ascertain ltsqu.intlty. Indica
tions of coal are said, by the sottlerH, to bo
frequont on this stream. I im somo of thorn,
and am of tho opinion that there is coal there
in plenty.
Stopping at the houso of well-to-do farm
er for dinner, I thought to do n little stroko
of business, and so, after dinnor was eaton,
ad we were enjoying a -quiet llttlo chat,l
brongbtup the subject or the papor.
'Wall,-1' said the farmer,-"I llko tho papor.
One ofi-my nabors takes It have seed it
"Would he subscribe? ipclco only (3 por
"Wal,' no; gnesa not. Money is mighty
akace, and my nabor takes It and I can got to
read hla'n, and it does mo all tho same."
And so this little financial operation came
lo grief.
Over the mountain two miles of climbing
and a eorrospondlng down.prudo, and you
are in tho Finr-qua country. It Is not a val
ley, but a succession of llttlO'valleys and big
bills. Ths hills generally having tho host of
it. Some of tho hills are bare of timber and
covered with what they coll aros. Tho rest
re timbered with tlr and serubby oaks, of
the Black Jack persuasion, which do not ap
pear to be wcrth much excopt for fuel.
There is much good grain laud; and I saw,
in the pleasant Yoncalla valley tho home of
the celebrated Applogato family as Hue
wheat as I vver saw In tuy-llfo. Tho laud
ultable for tho plough ia very clean; noth
ing on it except the glass beforo-tnentloued,
which Is eight Inches to a foot, high, white,
.dry, and to all appearance dead.
From Yoncalla valley It is ton miles overa
big, long hill to Old Oakland. Jt U in its do-
cadonce; contains, perhapw, ouo huudred
people, a mill, and a store or two. It is situ
ated on a bill'Bldo, in a Dlack Jack grovo,and
is not particularly' attractive.
New Oakland tho oll'sprlnc-of old Oakland
ad the railroad town Is a mile further on.
It U in a low, but'dry and opon plaoo; has it
business aspect, -aud perhaps ono huudred
ad tiny people. Its youthfclueus .is very
apparent. Most of tho uoumw havo a new
look, are guiltless of wcatbor-bourdic),', and
xto smell of new ptlnt ervade tho attnos
rthore. Ten miles further on is Wllbcr-nn.eJuoa-tlonal
Iottu of half a dozen Iioum and an
Academy ruu by tho M. K. Church. An ad
ditional building Is being erected for their
tue, and the facilities of tho school is being
greatly Increased. Dr.AVm. Orubb la located
Jiere, has quite a nice store, and is prejurbg
to bny and ship grain.
Across the North Umpqua river and tho
"Big Btlckey" to Itoseburr, It is eight tnllus.

land and on the hill-sides. It is Ary now, but
in winter would appear capable of miring

Mn. 1'ntToit: It Is not often that wn hnvo
ocovilnn to nqvirt ollnntlti ottroines; yet, on
Ihe Otli Inst., this vail')' wis vMled with the
most dettriicllvo hall Htorm known siucii Its
llrst settlement. A dark cloud appeared iu
the houihuctt about - o'clock t. m., while
slinnltanenuH with this n heavy storm eccm
ed approaching from tho uortli9Ast,nciompa
uled with lightning and thunder. Carried
by two opposite currents of air, tliey csuie
together Inim'-illstoly over a certain pottlou
of tho Kt'ttlements; nud, fir a miuiient, tho
vtorm seemed to nb.ito, only, however, to
break forth In groater violence. Hull fell as
shot from n tower, vertically, nud In such
profusion that In loss than half an hour tho
ground wns covered to tho depth of llvo or
six Inches. Tho storm hnd passed, tho earth
was covered with a heavy carpet of snowy
white, and all nature as quiet as midnight,
whon, as tho farmer walked forth to view tho
destruction ol his beat-Held, he heard unu
sual thundering sounds issuing from tho
canyons and gulches; and, upon looking
around, beheld a rush of waters, ball, rock,
drift-wood, etc, coming down llko some
foaming cataract, clearing ovorythlng In Its
course. Upon reaching the alluvial bottoms,
where a half hour before flourished tho veg
etable garden, these waters leaped their
bauks and burled, with esrth and gravel,
tho already demolished plants, drain, vhleh
was ripe and roady for Ihn sickle, was thresh
ed as completely by tho hall storm as though
It had passed through ft threshor. William
Luce, three mllos below Canyon City, Is the
heaviest loser, having lost tlio greater por
tion of his grain and vegelablo crop, which
would havo amounted in thoiiggrogit!n,whcii
sold, to several thousand dollarx, Other par
ties have lost heavily, yet, ns tho hall storm
was confined to only a small area of farming
laud three or four farms tho dainngolsnot
ho great as it might luio been. Hint tho
storm loon general throughout tho alley,
not enough grain would havo been led for
broad and whmI. A great amount or hay on
tho meadows was materially Injured, yl not
a total loss.
Aro now ongaged In reaping their crops,
which, Ii' tho way, may bj pronounced good.
Grain, however, rates low, as buyers nro only
offering ono cent per pound for barley, nni)
ouo and a quniter cents for oats, nu prlroas
yet established for wheat.
