-The dime sociable at the residence
of Dr. Bailey last Thursday erening was
a prent feiiccess. Financially it raised
some $14 fur the fund of the Cougrega
t ton ill church. Socially every one had a
gottd time, and we have heard it several
times remarked this week that somehow
there wit such a genial element of hearty
good will in the gathering of so rnauy
people of all agea and denomination
that one seldom has the good fortune t
experience. We, from observation, feel
iuclmnd to believe. that in addition to
the kindly and courteous welcome ex
tended by the host and hostess with
their elegant refreshments, the presence
of so many of our young people from a
. , distance had quite a pleasing effect upon
the inhabitants who were glad to see
them back among us again, even though
ply for a few holidays.
"What is in a name," is a very com
mon saying, but occasionally there is a
great deal in one. For example, a man
giving the name of Riley Clearwater,
and who is an old resident in this county,
was in town the other day. We are well
informed that in one establishment the
departure of the gentleman with the
above name caused quite an interval ol
aerious cogitation on the part of the
young men employed therein. How
anything could be clear and riley or
riley and clear was quite a conundrum.
One could see that some question requir

An Elk Hunt,
In a conversation with the Hon. T. B.
Handley since his return from Tillamook
we incidently learned that he had been
on the war path against the elk tribe,
and had succeeded in scalping one. Be
ing curious to know the particulars of
the elk hunt, a reporter of this paper
after some persuasion succeeded in ob
taming the following particulars from
It seems that Sir. Handley accom
panied by his son George, while wander
ing between Tillamook and Nehalem in
search of a good homestead for another
member of the family, came across the
feeding grout ds of a t-mall band of elk.
Several days afterwards having obtained
the use of a dog trained to elk hunting,
and having armed themselves with Mar
lin repeating rifles, they started out for an
interview with the elk tribe. In les
tban half a day the dog succeeded in
bringing to bay one of the band. This
was easily known by the baying of the
dog. On coming in sight of the elk
Mr. Handley, George and the owner of
the dog opened fusillade upon the ani
mal which they severely wounded. It
then turned from the dog and dashed
down the mountain side anil made for
the beach, a distance of aliout two miles
The dog pursued, and the hunters in
single file at various distances followed
the dog. On arriving at the beach the
elk plunged into the water and swam
out through the breakers into the deep
sea. He swam about a mile along the
coast at a safe distance from it, when
feeling exhausted from the loss of blood
he made for the shore and fell dead in
about two feet of water.
The hunters bv this time had arrived
in sight and rushed down to where the
noble animal had just expired. They
cut his throat with a large knife and
the water was reddened with the blood
for a considerable distance around. It
was a large animal, and they were com
pelled to quarter it before they could
take it from the water.
The whole adjacent settlement had
elk meat in gatore for the next few days.
The owner of the dog obtained the ant
lers as a trophy. Mr. Handley think
that this elk must have weighed at
least 1100 pounds. Each antler had
seven branches, and the distance from
tip to tip was four or five feet.

age was poor, the streets muddy,
and what is now the most fashion
able quarter, was practically a
marsh. All this he changed.
Most of the streets are paved
with asphaltum, of a dark gray
color, and smooth as a floor; this
slopes easily from the middle both

streets and avenues are covered
