Dr. Cathey received a message a
few days ago from the father of
Henry Olenaan, whose life was at
one time despaired of as the result
of a shotgun wound received some
y weeks ago, as stated in the Gazette
at the time. Henry, at the time
Dr. Cathey received word from
him, was thought to be getting
along all right. When the acci
dent occurred Dr. Cathey was call
ed and made the young man as
comfortable as possible. On ac
count of the peculiar character of the
wound nnd its severity it was deem
ed best to remove the suTferer to
the hospital at Salem. Here he
was kept for sometime and . it was
thought later that he was sinking
and hope of his recovery was
abandoned. At this juncture Henry
begged to be taken to his home
near Summit. Believing his case
to be hopeless it was thought bzst
to humor him. To the gratification
and surprise of all he, to all appear
ances, grew better instead of worse.
Regularly he has been reyorted to

John Brumfield exhibited quite
a novel device on the streets, Satur
day, at the Occidental corner. It
was a rack and box lifter and is
patented by F. D. Baker, of Billing's
Montana. The lifter is especially
designed for loading onto the run
ning gears of a wagon, a hayrack
and other racks of like character.
These racks may be taken off or
onto the running gears withoit any
effort whatever. In order to ap
preciate the affair one .would have
to see it.
Notwithstanding the fact that
this has not been a ciod year for
prunes, it is the intention to have a
display of this fruit at the Fair
this week that will be immense.
The indications are that aH who
see our exhibit of this . fruit will
speedily wish to get "full of prunes."
If the' tact is made clear to visitors
at the Exposition that this has
been an off year, for this fruit in
Oregon it will start new-comers to
wondering what we can do when
things come our way. When the
season is right Benton can supply
the entire coast with prunes and
have some left.
J. N. Barton, wife and child, of
Appleton, Minnesota, arrived in
Corvallis Thursday. Mr. Barton
was taken ill while en route to this

remained for a number of weeks
during which time he submitted to
a surgical operation.' He is not
very strong yet. ; The gentleman
is an uncle of J. L Underwood, of
this city, and is out here on a tour
of investigation. If he is pleased
with the country and conditions
generally it is propable that he will
buy property and locate in this
city. .. .." v . ,
A party consisting of Sheriff
Burnett, George W. Smith, Thomas
Vidito and Ed Taylor, who went
on a hunting trip together to Grass
Mountain, leaving here . last Tues
day morning,' arrived home Satur
day. They had unusual good luck,
bringing five deer home with them.
One b uck was so large i that it had
to be cut in halves before it could
be carried to camp. Ed. Taylor
succeeded in killing three of thb
deer, and Sheriff Burnett and Tho
mas Vidito each killed one. While
in the mountains a log that was
loosened and rolled down the hill
side came very near causing Benton
county to be minus her sheriff. As
it was, one rifle was smashed to
"frmithereens." The gentlemen
were very generous with their veni
son and this office was remembered
most handsomely. - , ,

Saturday, Fenton Starr, son of
Clarence Starr, who clerks at S. L.
Kline's met with a serious accident.
The lad is aged about 3 years and
was down at the saw. mil having
with him a small stick cf hard
wood. Mr. Knox had just regula
ted some saws to his satisfaction in
the presence of Fenton when he
was called away for a brief time.
During the absence of Mr. Knox,
Fenton concluded it was up to him
to do some work on his hardwood
stick. .'. Just what happened or how
it occurred, will probably never b.
known, but within the twinkling
of an eye, Fenton had a couple of
his fingers of his left hand cut off
and the other members badly lacer
ated. Doctors Cathey and Pernot
were called upon to attend tbe suf
ferer and he is now getting along
all right. There is nothing more
dangerous as a play thing than dy
namite and buzz saws. ,
An unusual accident befell Thom
as Uooper while he was driving to
town in his buggy last Saturday in
company with another party. Mr.
Cooper was leading a couple of
horsefa behind the buggv, and, ac
cording to the report that reached
us, some kind of vehicle approached
fr m the rear and startled the ani
mals being led. In its fright one
of the horses jumped and stuck a
foreleg through a buggy wheel.
Then there was something doing.
Mr. Cooper; and , companion were
thrown out in the melee and the
deuce to pay , generall. When
things were straightene finally the
hind wheel of the buggy was a
sight to behold. ; It looked like
lightening had landed on it. Aside
from the condition of the wheel,
and we suppose a tenderness of one
of the horses legs, no damage re
