A Cougar Story.
For some time past D. S. Ad
ams and Wesley Newton have
been cutting wood out ontha
Doc Jackson place about five
miles north of this city. .They
occupied a rude "shaek" while
at work, and the Walters broth
res and Reuben Roberts occupied
a cabin a short distance from the
one occupied by Messrs. Adams
and Newton. - Recently ; Mr.
Newton quit work and left Mr.
Adams in undisputed authority
at the camp. Last Tuesday
evening, shortly after he had re
tired for the night, something
struck the cabin with great vio
lence. The suddenness and
force of the shock, instantly
conjured up vast and unshapely
demons in Mr. Adams' imagina
tion and took such a hold on bis
ftntire nervous system that he
had not that reserve and dignity
of manner thai usually charac
terizes him as a mad of nerve,
and in his terror he landed en
his feet yelling "soat" at his best
The animal, for such it was, took
its leave, and our fellow citizen
again souglit nis bed, but Sleep
was a long time coming to bun.
It appears that Mr. Adams had
been boiling some beef before
retiring that evening afld it is
supposed that the odor of-the
meat attracted the animal. The
next day,, when Mr. Adams re
lated his experience to the boys
occupying the other cabin, they
informed him that about 6:?o
Idonday evening they had seen
an immense eougar within 30
yards of Mr. Adams' cabin.
The roof on which the animal
jumped was fully seven feet from
the ground. Its claw marks
were . lou&d about the cabin.
This ii perhaps as close as Mr.
Adams ever came to killing a
cougar. - ' ' . v

70 years. Interment took at
2 'clock yesterday after

and the funeral lervices were
conducted by Rev. F.' A. Lark.
Lyman G. Goodell was born
in Ohio in 1831, and came to the
Pacific coast in 1850. He fel
lowea tne occupation ot a miner
in the early days and was pres
ent at nearly all of the famous
geld "strikes" ef California and
Oregon. . He was also a veteran
of the Rogue River Indian War.
During tho period that the In

Prunes in Benton.
Mr. Kurtz, of ' Kurtz & Son,
arrived in Corvallis, Friday.
This firm deals in prune dryers
and Mr. Kurtz was here on busi
ness in this line. His bouse will
build a dryer for parties at Mon
roe, one for Herron Bros.,' of
Irish Bend It is quite probable
that he will receive the contrast
for patting up a dryer far parties
in Corvallis. It is thought that
quite a number of new dryers
will be put in Operation in Ben
ton county this year, as there is
abundant Indication of a large
crop of prunes this year. W.
K. Allen, . the aathority oa
prunes, recently returned from
the East. While there he inves
tigated the market conditions
and is satisfied that tit can ob
tain just as mnch for our prnnes
according to size" as the Cali-
tornians. .At present we get
about a cent a pound less fer
prunes of the same size. He
was in hope that upon bis return
he would at least find a number
of county organizations taking
hold of this matter. It lies at
the very foundation- ef success
and he can not see any chance of
the prune business of the North
west insr ento a reallv satis
factory basis until we iaaagurate
some system whieh will secure a
uniformity of character in our
product upon which dealers can
depend. - ; - .
Mr. Allen advises all growers
of prunes to grade out the small
ones before drying and give their
time to the curing in the best
possible manner of the large
sizes. Don't dry the small ones
at all. -
- Siletz Fish Hatchery.
The . government has" decided
to operate a fish hatchery on the
Siletz river. About a week ag9

ed a letter from United States
Fish Commissioner George M.
Bowers, - notifying him that the
proposal of the Oregon State
Board ot Fish , Commissioners
that the government maintain a

Bowers' letter says in part:
"I nofce that5 the members f
