THE ENGINEER'S STORY.
EBEN E. REXFORD.
Yes, sir, I do believe in ghosts.
VVell, sir, because I saw-one.
Tell you about it? Well, I will
if you'll sit -down and listen. It
isn't-munch to" tell, but it was a
good deal to see you can juet bet

place when 1 see .it without ' It els

Lem' me ee. 7 'Twas'in 1860.
I .was jist beginnin my work on
his road that year. I d' been on
a road out west, but a Hend,got
Pie the position here . that 1 have
kep ever sence. . ;- , , ? .
It was a rainy, disagreeable day
when the? aftair L'm tgoin to tell
you about happened. . Jest one o
them days that makes' a felUr
eel blue, in spite ot himself, an
i0 can't tell why neither, 'less he
ays it all to the weather.
I don't know what, made me
fee!, so bnt it seemed as there was
danger ahead ever after we left
Wood's" station. And what made
it seem so curious was that the
'eelin of danger came on me all
at once. It was ie3t 4 o clock, as
near as I can tell. Anywaj', jest
about the time when the down
express must have got 6ately by
he place where what I am goin
to tell you about happened, I'was
astandin with one hand on the
ever a-lookin ahead through the
drizzlin rain, feelin chilly an
kinder dovvn heaated, as ,1 have
said, when all of a 6uddeu the
idea came over me, that somethin
was wrong somewnere. It took
hold of. me an I -couldn't git rid
ot it, nohow; 1 knew that all was
right with the engine. But that
feelin that the're ? was danger
aht ad ne ver let up once rafter i t
got into ni3 head Queerswasn't
it? Bnt 'twas so. I could't ac
account for it attcr I toniid out
there was aunger,-just at I telt.
an I h; m't never beeu able to ac
count for it since.'
It got dark early, on account
of the fog an rain; it was dark as
pitch afore we left Ilol brook,
which was: the last station we
passed afore we come to the
place where I see the ghost. .
1 never telt so queer in my lire
afore, said Jimmy, the fireman to
me, all of a sudden. . 1
As I was feelin queer myself,he
kinder startled ir.e, sayiu.what he
Why, what do you mean? said
I without letting on that I was
uneasy.-. . .. ; '. -, '-, ?
Do know, only I feel as 4f
something was goin tot happen;
said Jimmy. '
That was just as I felt an I told
him so, and we talked about it
till wo both got figetty.
There's a pretty sharp curve
about twenty miles trm Hol
brook. -The road makes a curve
round a mountain an the river
raps below you, about lorty foot,
or sich matter. K It's a pokerish
lookin place when you happen to
be going oyer it and think what
would come it the ram should
pitch over the bluff mto, the
river. - .". " .. -";
We got to the foot of the
mountatu, and all at once I saw
suthin right ahead in the bright
light of the enije. We always
ruu slow round the cure an could
see distinctly. s My hair nz right

can, tor ye see I thougnt ii was

But I began to see it wasn't

A GRANGE PICNIC.
The Grange, picnic near Salem
last Friday, was a grand succesa
Jn ever jr particular. The number

jcapable ot intelligently judging
ot their own interests ami con-
gaged in such enterprises began
to associate themselves together
to regulate the price of products,
control freights aud otherwise
regulate the business in which
they were engaged. These asso
ciation i are sometimes called
boards of trade, and these boards
are usually! composed tf men of
wealth and influence, who desire
internal improvements, such as
railroads and peuihg of rivers to
na'vigatin. These are in the io
terest of the producer. They aiso
so desire to manipulate matters as
to buy the products of the ta&n
at low rates aud stl) at high n-tes,
and to make large profits on .the
machinery they sell to the farmer.
This is not in the interest of the
producer. For many years these
men have had their own way in
such matters, and have held their
power over the tarmmg commun
ity;. 15 at the spread of know ledge
bas now reached the remotest parr
of the world, and farmers can
now" inform themselves as well
an the business man. It is one
grent object o( the (irangeto col
lect and distribute information for
tne benefit f farmers so that the.
may act intelligently -in disposing
of their products" and purcha-mg
, . ; . f p
what is necessary in transacting
their buineHs. For this purpose
agncu 1 1 u ral u e wfpape rs a re need
ed, fanners nee.l to collect nd
hold their " products until then
know their valu, and to co-operate
in buying , machinery and
other necessities. To "the influ
ence ot the Grange was due the
maintenance of the P. P. T. Co.,
and: that their single boat had
kept freights down to a reasona
ble figure, which has acutually
saved the farmers of the Willam
ette valiey so tar $600,000. The
speaker referred to the influence
of the Gr;i ge on the legislation
ff the tate, and attributed to it
the continued tree navigation
through the locks at Oregou City,
't he t Grange, he said, U not aud
should not be a political organi
iz ition, but it should be a great
social and moral power, r The one
great object is to lfiiprove the or
dition ot the agricultural classes'.
This ts a work worthy ot our
greatest endeavors. i
It is absurd to assume that
manual labor is derogatory to the
dignity of a lady. The idea is
based upon mere vanity, and leads
to idleness and all the evil ten
dencies thereupon. It betrays ig
norance of human nature and of
the prime factors of human hap
piness and is condemned alike by
history and common sense. Horn
er tells ot Priucesses drawing va
ter from the springs, and washing
with their " own hands the finest
linen of their families.
The Oregoniau is very busy just
now Slutting and nosing around
among all the dung hills from
Yamhill to Poker-jam,Tsmelling

dubs as "traitors to their coun
