Life in Fox Prairie.
A correspondent says: W. Potterand Wm
Robinson, oi Fox Prairie, the other day went
with dogs and guns to kill a buck. Tho dogs
soon started one which run close to one of
tho men and wns shot down, proving to be a
big buck. The dogs were started again and
in a few minutes roused up a large cougar
which ran about two hundred yards and
took to a tree. In going to the dogs the men
run on a very large buck the cougars had
killed, the dogs rallying them before tbey
had time to eat it. Tbev went on. sbxt the
cougar in the tres aud took him baok to
where he bad killed the deer. In the mean
time the old she cougar had dragged tbo
buck about two hundred yards, torn off tbe
skin and was making her breakfast. The
dogs soon made her take a tre.i aud tbe men
soon came up and shot her. Tbey had now
two cougars aud two bucks, results of a good
hour's hunt on the first day of July.
On tbe third we had a celebration near Fox

Mn. Kditok: Tho oxpodltlon to Mt. Jeller
son, for the pttrposo of making a thorough
examination of the proposed routo for a wag
on road across Ihe Cascade mountains ac
companied by two gentlemen who propose,
if practicable, to give substantial asslstauco,
in the shapo of.mohey left Saloin Thursday
afternoon, July 8th, at 4 o'clock, r. M., and
arrived at Mr. John Hunt's, eleven miles
east of Salem, at 7 o'clock, whoro we weiti
cordially received by that gentleman and his
osllmable lady, who soon mado us feol at
homo, as our ride bad given us a sharp nppo
tlto, which was soon satisfied at their hospit
able board. This morning, at 0 o'llock, wo
were stored aboard of Mr, limit's thorough
brace wagon, behind a good span of horses,
which soon carried us out of sight of tho
place where we had spont a few hours with a
pleasant family. For several miles wo trav
eled through tho verge of the over varying
and picturesque Waldo Uills, the most beau
tiful portion of Oregon. After an hour's ride,
we came to the quiet and rural village ot
Sublimity, where we made a lew neoeaxary
purchases and bandied Jokes with the good
uatured postmaster. Prom this verge of
hills we descended into a southeasterly di
rection into Mill Creek bottom, near Stay tou
yille, and there turned eas". anil up tho San
tiam bottom to Smith's ferry, nine miles dis
tance, which we reached at 12:30, whore we
moored. Rut before we reached the It-rry wo
patsed Messrs Downer & HowoII'h new
(arm, where we halted and Blacked our thirst
Irom one of the finest natural sprloes that
this State can boast of.and were agroeably en
tertained by Mrs. Howell, the hostess of tills
piciuret-que country residence. At Smith's
terry we lunched and doctored up Mr. J. W.
Redlnxtonof the ufrxmnn.wliti liiludiciouR-
ly drank too much cold water, while very
warm, and had a touch of water colic; but
about half a teaspoonilil of Jamaoia ginger
restored heat and order in his stomach, and
t the present writing he Is convalescent.
At 2:30 o'clock; we crossed tho -Santiam and
started for this place, on the Linn county
sldeol tbe river. For tbe first six miles wo
bad to rido through a prairie except the first
mile and wore exceedingly warm, in fact it
was terrific, so we halted tor a short time at
Mr. Patten's and allowed our sweating team
to cool oil"; then in a few minutes weotitered
a dense turent, which continued with scatter
ing openitiKs for ten miles. We found sev
eral plucea where men had attempted the
uen-iueaii lass oi Hiioauing ine torestanU
making larins. The trees on this vtrcam
grew exceedingly tall; in fact there are plen
tyof them which were estimated to bu3-i.
leot high, and I verily believe they will
measure every inch ofthe same. The'ranuos
have gradually crowded, until thoy have
now entirely closed up around up; uutl
when we leave here In the morning wo will
hat ti to take to the mountains in earnest, anil
leave our team and pack our camp equip,

and has been a stanch MethodUt and bus
hcon a "hewer of wood and drawer of water"
In this-community ever since anybody can

more simple, good hearted and inoffensive
creature orobablv nover lived. So lonir as
he was able to esan money he was ready to

mune time past the county baa taken charge
of him, lie was burled yesterday aud his
familiar and patibntold phiz will be seen do
ing no moro chtirua and' odd jobs. During
his thirty years in Oregon, sjuce Mr ho has
probably noer had au enemy. Perhaps tho
old man didn't expect this much tribute to
Jiis inumory, but he shall hai o le.
