Yesterday's Oregohian contains
a lino cut of our fellow townsman,
James Hayes, together with an in
teresting letter from his pen, in
which he claims the distinction of
having been the discoverer-, of -Gold
Hill, Jaeksos county, Oregon.- The
discovery was made about 1858,
and wa& the result of an accident.
Mr. Hayes; in company with a man
named Wilson, was in search of a
mule, and while riding down the
hill which has since become famous,
the cinch to Mr. Hayes" Baddle .
parted and he went oyer his horse's
head. In the fall he had loosened
a piece of rock which proved to be
goldbearing' qtiartz, a Cropping of
a pocket which yielded $300,000.
Being an. inexperienced youth, Mr.
Hayes was, induced' to dispose of
bis interest for $4,000." . -

whieh is the only building placed

for misrepresentation of this nature.

street, Whitehorn's new brick and
the i Maienio Temple have been
erected within the last four years.

been made and are constantly going

" Prof. E. R. Lake jives "quite
an account of his joarEey
t"- -ough parts of Europe during
the past year. Ia speaking ' of
the condition Of the, people he
said that from aa educational
standpoint they are far behind
as in certain sections, particu
larly ia Southern France. The
people along, the Mediterranean
are illiterate, fantastical, super
stitious and suspicious by nature.
In other sections good schools
art plentiful and the people are
nearer abreast of the times. -
The frofessor traveled with an
interpreter and every place he
visited he was well received by
tho people in general. - In fact,
one of the greatest troubles be
experienced , was to avoid toe
mneh honor, in . the way of
lengthy comrse dinners, that cut
into his time ahd exhausted his
patience. . Everywhere he was
looked open with interest and
found that the masses of the peo
ple of the country he yisited had
never heard of Oregon. Ia this
connection it rflay be well to
mention - his observation that
.Oregon's southern, sister, Califor
nia, was advertised everywhere
and in every conceivable man
ner. The result was that every
body knew of California. This
should be a lesson to the boards
f trade arid other bodies of like
degree throughout the state. .
On every hand he was, sur
prised at the simplicity of the
people in regard to their way
of living. You would find a
manrfam6us in the world on ac
count of scientific research along
some particular educational line,
living in obscuritv; so to speak,
and almost t unknown by . iisl
neighbors, his worth uflreeog
nized. His. dress and mode of j
living '-" varied very little, if
any, fram the rqasses . at his
elbow. This was. particularly
true in" Germany. Everything
appeared to-be crowded beyond i
description. A business ' that at.
one time had been in the hands
of one man, had later been
divided . between,: two or more
sons, who in turn had again par
titioned it until it was little more
than "a phantom ef , what it had
been. The people seemed happy,
but on aecourit ef no opportuni
ties or possibilities of great
achievements the; had lost am
bition aud had , fallen into the
habit of living, fiotfer the future
but for the ? present, as it ap
peared from day to day.
In one things they are far
ahead of the people of this coun
try, : and that is'roads; ?. The
highways ar iinagnificent and
are a source of grfji satisfaction

. Last week a' neat little bulle
tin,' entitled "Investigation of
Diseases-m Poultry," was' issued
from th e 6 'A C presses. It is
full of very .interesting matter
and all who are engaged in poul
try raising to any degree should
manage, some way to secure a
copy of this little .work. It is
edited by Prof. E. F, Pernot and
is so worded that it can be un
derstood by anyone. - Th me
chanical work, by George B.
Keady, is all that could be'fle
sired. It ia prefaced . as follows:
- "The poultry industry in the
state of Oregonj althongh' ap
parently insignificant, la equal,
if not greater in importance to
that of wheatraising.
"It is difficult-to estimate the
immense amount ot money an
nually distributed among poul.
try raiser and farmers because
it is divided into such numerous
small amounts. Eggs and poul
try play sueh an Important pa t
in providing fresh meat and gro
ceries for the farmers, that the
barnyard fowls are ifldispensible.
On the other hand, those who
are engaged in raising poultry
for the market, by modern meth
ods, find it, remunerative and
within, the; reach' of 'even those
possessing- small capital; The
success ot such enterprises de
pends" largely upon the. intelli
gent management of the fowls
when disease manifests . itself
among them. The lafik of
proper understanding as to what
should be , done when mortality
occurs among - incubator chicks,
has discouraged a great many
who might otherwise have made
a success of the enterprise."
On page 23 is this paragrapa:
"Fowls 2re subject to a great
many other diseases not men
tioned in this bulletin, but the
results of investigations and ex
perimeats will be published as
new cases arise. Ordiuarily it is
difficult to distinguish: the differ
ent diseases by .the, appearance of
the fowl, because the symptoms
are 'so nearly alike with different
ailments. Moping is one f the
most oommon symptoms, and
unless a careful examination1 is
made, the nature of the' disease
will probably not be disoovered,
and if it is of a contagions or in
fectious nature, . serious losses
may follow." ; -
