AN ICE INCIDENT.
Most of the service wator pipes in town are
Canadian Pacific Railway.
Our Canadian and British Columbia
neighbors nro in the Held with a railway
project which they hope in time will
bridge the continent upon a route which
shall connect tho Pacific ocean with
Lake Superior, and be completed by the
year 1890, which gives sixteen years for
the performance of the great undertak
ing. Our people are apt to be in too
much of a hurry, and the experience of
all our railway building goes to prove tho
truth of the proverb that haste makes
waste, iiie Northern ractiic road was
to be built in time to enable us all to buy
excursion tickets to the coming Centen
nial, but, alas for human expectations,
the project promises less now than it did
in its inclpleucy. The Central Pacific
route was rushed through, regardless of
expense and reckless of common hon
esty ; the Northern Pacific road was
trumpeted as a great success, until It
tumbled into chaotic ruin. The Canadi
an railway proceeds slowly, and promises
nothing for the present, but may succeed
all the better for its lack of haste. It
will be a severe commentary on Ameri
can speculation and precipitancy if we
eventually see the Canadian railway
completed according to programme, ful
filling the moral of the fabled race be
tween the tortoise and the hare, while
the Northern Pacific route shall still re
main an untamed wilderness.
If our Canadian neighbors get commu
nication with tho world before we do, we
shall have to make the best of it,
but let us hope that our railroad lines
may fall In pleasant places before 1S90,
which is really too far off for many of us
to place much confidence in. We cannot
hope for a railroad 'to take us direct
through to the next centennial, and wo
do not expect to be on hand to claim pas
sage in 1970, but our great grandchildren
may be here to act as our proxies and
.accept the hopes so long deferred fo.-us.
Not exactly a nice Incident but a very icy
one befel some ot our young friends right af
ter dinner to-day. Our young postal agent,
Bibs Rickey, has a pair of skates impotled
from tbo East and was airing them on the
Slough, near Westacott's, where a tUtboat is
frozen in and makes a pood lauding place for
skaters. Bliss, who is very gallant, was as
sisting a very charming young lady to go off
the boat upon the Ice, and young Parrott,tlie
well known artist, added his efforts to make
the group picturesque. The combined weight
ofthe three, made an impression on the new
ice which was hastened by the precip'tate
downfall of Parrott under which tbo icogsve
way, drawing tho young gentlemen into the
water where they floundered gracefully about
among the Juuenlle icbliergs in a very sensa
tional manner, and at the samo time in the
coolest way possible. True to his gallant
instincts, which we all know he Inbeiited,
Bliss managed to give a push to the lady
of tho frozen lake which sent her
out ot danger with enly n piirof wet feet,
and then he sunk down smlliuplv into the
ley abyss which was fathoms deep. Great
cous'rnntion prevailed whrn the crowd of
skaters and pleasure hunters, who swarmed
on the surface of tho slough, saw Bliss "go
in." The girls all shrieked lamentably,
they wouldn't have minded hair so much
If it had been the young lidy. Great
tumult ensued, and while the committee
of the whole wero desiring wavs and
means tho two young gentlemen who woro
ail tho while fully alive to their own
interests crawled out on firmer ice
and took Ibolr way homeward, sadder
if not wiser men. That is nothing. Having
discovered the weak place in tho ice tho
crowd is all right and tho two demolished
young gents havn had iheuisolvcs recon
structed and nre skating fur dear life agaiu,
long before this.

WHAT A HOT BRICK DID.
Two very pretty marriageable young ladies,
living not far from tho lower end of High
street, last Wednesday night, concluded that
the weather was too rough to go bed, with
out introducing betweeu the "cold, cold"
sheets a little artldcial beat to warm their
pretty llttto feet by. They sont their little
brother out foraging for a brick, which exre
dltiou was successful, the youth returning in
due time with a large fine specimen of Penl
tlary manufacture. The brick was heated
"rod hot," wrapped up and duly Inserted
and placed in position. Tho ladles retired,
the brick answered the required purpose and
the young ladies locked in each others arms
soon fell asleep. An hour or so elapsed

Oregon and went to housekeeping over in

bringing that cbronlo" instrument to this
country, fir on the first chance It had for a

The Grhat Japan ;umtKr Our or Fix.
U matter of common notorloty that the
KuroSlro, or Japan current, sweeps the rim
of our northern ocean aud brings us tho
warm weather we usually have in winter.
Aftor cercuinnavlgating the seas of torrid
temperate aud artlo, Asia, this benlQcent
current swings around the circle and comes
down the A tnerloan shore with still enough
of warmth remaining to moderate the win
tow of Oregon. If the Kuro Slro gulf stream
does all this, the next question Ih, how come
It that for the nonce the arctlo temperature
predominates. Are the great Kuro Biro
water works out of fix? Has somebody turn

J. M. GreenHreot was called on for a talk;
on fruit raising, but asked for moro time;
sid he would glvons a chapter ou dojis.
The Waldo Hlls was cursed with too many
dogs of ttieilsle kind, kept by tho ownnrs for
catching squirrels to littlo purpose. It would '
be a mercy If tho equlrrels could catch tho
dogs and let us ho rid of tliemj n.dd wo
should keep nono but valuable dogs, and
those that wero used for running the volves
where, ho thought, most vnluablo.
Mr. Jones said tho groat post of tho hills
was tho fqulrrels. Tiioy dally swarmed
around some fields: was in favor of keeping
one man constantly employed killing squir
rels In each neighborhood until rjd of them.
Hail got tbe dog lover; was raising soma
do;rH to hunt wplvos; had hunted somo; was
fond of It. Let us havo ft big wolf hunt; lota
of fun in it.
Mr. Udell said there was many plan1) for
killing squlrrols; was skoptlcsl of any that
ho had heard of being fully successful;
thought well of the stool trap; a good dog
was useful. Stryohnlno frequently destroyed
valuable animals; should ha used with cau
tion. Mr. Hunt said ralso a nnrso every spring;
and offer bounties; set tho boj-s to work sav
ing scalps for a promltim; twonty-ilvo dol
lars offered In several premiums would do
the business In almost nny neighborhood;
pieferred trapping to any other mode.
Mr. Perkins said in ouly spring go alter
tbe pests with strychnine; mix it with gra
ham flour, sweotnnod with inohiss, It would
do the business. Boys fooled away too much
time trapping for squirrels.
The President agreed with Mr. Perkins; a.
boy's time was worth too much to bo Idling'
away catching squirrels; Intorferrod with
their going to sohool. Four or five bottles
of poison In early spring would do tho busi
ness effectually; killed over ouo hundred
with one bacon rind. Phosphorus waseffoct
ivo but more oxpenslvo and dangerous.
Mr. Jones moved that a com in It too be ap
pointed to raise a purse of money to oiler
bounty for squirrel scalps, of not less than it
premiums; time of catching to commence at
