occurred near Feattle, W. T. Two married
men, who were neighbors, and whe were
on friendly terms, were visiting each other
with their wives. While bo doing they
got" into a religious discussion, which en
gendered unpleasant feelings. One drew
his pistol and attempted to shoot the other,
but was prevented bv the women. Ttey
were at length reconciled by agreeing to a
silent disageemeui.. B it in a few tuos

and finally came to blows. One of the sien

through his antagonist several times, Wio

QUITE A BREEZE.
Houses Unroofed, Trees Torn L'p,
and fences Prostrated.
One of the heaviest w ind storms ever
known to oui people, passed over tLe
Unipqua valley lata Monday morning
The storm began about 1:00 o'clock, and
filteen minutes Defore it Lroke npon this
city, a tearful roaring, rumbling sound
was heard, which increased as the storm
drew nearer, and finally when the wind
came one could hardly hear another per
son speak when both parties were inside
of a building. The etorm came from the'
south west, and, as an old salt describes it,
"it was a regular sou'xwestei." The sig
nal set vice record shows that the storm had
a velocity of Sfcy miles per hour. What
made it most destructive was that the wind
came in gusts, and formed whirlwinds,
which took most everything in their way
The dninige done in this city was con
siderable. The engine house, at the rail
road depot was thrown to the ground and
completely wrecked. "Pat," the fireman,
as good luck wuld have it, was in the cab
of tiie locomotive when the building lell,
and escaped crushing to death. He was
starting the fire beneath the engine, and
was startled, as might be supposed, when
the house tumbled over his head. The
headlight of the locomotive was torn off
and ot : er damage done to the machinery;
bat '.Big Jack" ."putted out'Tor Portland
the same morning with his battered en
gine as though nothing unusual had oc
curred. W. F. Owen's chicken coop and
smoke-house were unroofed, and had it
not been for a wire-clothes tine whicli held
them they would have been carried into
the river. The river at the time
whs as angry as the sea ever becomes
comparatively speakinjr. - Its Surface was
violently disiurbed. Mr. Thrasher had
some damage doue rbout his premises, but
it was easily repaired. The southern cor
ner of Wright & Carlon's stable was torn
off', and a fched covering hay scales, and the
scales also, were demolished ' A large oafe
tree standing near was blown down upon
the dwelling houso of W. G. Woodward,
and a portion of that structure shivered a
if struck by lightning. Tom Grigdaie'e
barn and Jacob Biuer's stock thd were
carried away. Mrs, Compion's millinery
establishment also was d .majed in the
matter of cornice destroyed. For a time it
seemed as if the whole town would go,
and tLere is leason to believe that much
serious loss would have been sustained had
the storm lasted 'luee hours instead of one.
The barn oi John Bruckner six miles
southwest of this place was thrown over,
and, a year's crop exposed to the rain that
followed the storm The greater number of
telegraph poles were uprooted on the differ
ent lines, aod George Dement lost a smoke
house. All lences iu the county have been
prostrated. George Koberts BU'tea there is
not a line of fence standiug between Can
yon vi lie. and liosebuig, and parties irom
Coos Bay, say ther- are no fences standing
in Ten Mite and Looking. Glass districts.
In addition to this Col. Thos. Beale lost two
sheds and a portion of the roofs of his barn
and dwelling were ripped off;BenAgee
lost his barn; Jeptha Green a blacksmith
shop and wood house; Tim Crossman half
the Toof of, his residence; Jim Velzain a
smoke house- J as. Diliard the roofs of two
granaries, and Jeff Singleton the roof of a
The force of the wind was more plainly
shown at Looking Glass- There the roof
lo H. G. Crrw's barn was completly raised.
One half of it was carried the distance of
thirty yards, and the other half fifty yards
and deposited on the roof of that gentle
man's dwelling. At Oakland the damage
done was not so great as in other districts.
Fences everywhere ware blown dowu. A.
Hr 'wn's stable was unroofed. Half of the
roof of the large stable was torn away, as
well as a part of the roofs ot Hsynes' and
Frazer's barns. Pat Snyder suffered only
in the loss of a wood shed.
There is no record of such a storm in the
history of the county bt fore. Parties who
have resided here tor twenty-five years say
ft is 'he first.. The lmbsof the trees, show
ing a growth of forty year, do not exhibit
any signs of a similar storm, and there is
evidence to prove that it is the first storm
of the kind in this valley within a half
century of the past. While we cannot es
timate the full amount of damage, it is very
easy for us to attribute the storm to acci
dent, and nothine more How it was it
dropped upon us cannot be told ; the chances
are, another generation will have come
to take the places of the present before
another such oocars.

We have just received a copy of The
Chicago Ledger, ttie leading family paper

plied to subscribers, postage paid, for the
low price of $1 50 per year. In order to
increase its present large list of readers,
the publishers of t; e Ledger have made a
new contract for several thousand fine

DEATH OF HI LEY' SINGLETON.
Sunday morning last K. W. Singleton
one of the first settlers of the valley of the
Umpqua.deparred h a life at the ripe age
of 60 years. The disease which carried Mr.
Singleton's soul y the home of his God,
was that of accumulation of fat iu the re
gion of the heart, and the good old uutn
died surrou du.l by his children, grands
jldren and great graiiucliiliiren. His ill
ness was not patuH ; his death was ac
complished without a sigh, fie had lived
a good man, and his feorsfnr the unknowu
hereafter were few if any. There was but
one gasp for breath, a rattle in the throat,
and Riley Singletou was dead. Up to the
last momtnt he retained consciousness of
all meturs surrounding hiin.uud at the last
moraont his excianiallou was ' My God, I
aiu dyiug." The remains of the deceased
wert interred iu the buiving ground ot the
family, on Deer Creek, fourteen miles from
Uoseburg. They were followed to tjieir
resting place by those who regretted he
who was ioved was lost without Uod gave
iLein way into heaven.
Handsome Wedding Dress.
Mr.-. Compton is now engaged in com
pleting a wedding dress for a handsome
young lady in this city. The joung lady
will go to Salem 'with hiei intended, and
in -re the ceremony will be performed not
only for them but also for another couple,
relatives of the expectant bride There
will be a double wedding 'of course. The

of white cashmere trimmed with white
diagonal satin puffs and lace. The front
is square, of white satin puffed with lace.
The front is also finished with satin van
dykes and satin reveres. Elbow sleeves.
filled with white blonde lace, and a kilt
train of seven feel completes what the skil
ful hands of the artistic milliner has fash
ioned into a beautiful dress.
About two weeks ago a man named
Bumgardner sold several forged notes to
Delashmutt & Oatman, Portland, and then
decamped. A reward of $500 was offered
for his arrest, and the man was followed
from Portland to Taquina Bay, and thence
along the coast to Empire City, where he
was arrested while engaged in playiug a
little game of poker. Chief Of Police Bes
ser took the prisoner by tra.n to the city of
Portland. Bumgardner is said to be the
son of wealthy aud respectable parents in
the East, and we are iuformed that an els
fort will be made to compromise the mat
ter. Hired his Own Horse.
A certain M. D. went to Wright & Car
Ion's stable the other day to hire a horse.
The Doctor had put his own horse into the
stable several weeks before, and the sadle'
keeper gave the animal ro him. The M.
D. rode that dayv and the next, and in the
evening of each day returned home. Each
time he paid for the use of the horse, lie
cuised the breed of the worthless animal,
and swore when the keeper smiled at his
threat to change his patronage to another
stable. The Doctor, however, cooled dowu
wi en lie found out he had been riding
his own horse, but he will have to ;atch a
stranger before he can sell tne animal.
Captain Williams Returned.
Capt. L. L. Williams returned from the
north Tuesday evening. Since he took
his departure from this valley, the Cap
tain has traveled over Grande Koude, visit
ed the Coeur d'Alene mountains, and took
in Spokane, Palonse and Walla Walla,
lli s appearance is that of one who has pers
formed a long journey and enjoyed his
travels, and his welcome her is that of one
who enjoys the unselfish friendship of

We have beeu presented with a lot of
dried cherries by W, C. Evans. They were
grown by Messrs Luelliug & oon, at Mil
waukie, iu this Sta'.e, and were pitted with
Lillie's prune pitter. The cherries were a
jood urticle of commerce, end Messrs Luel
liug & Son deserve credit for their work in
drying them. These gentlemen have grown
and manufactured this year ot this fruit
above four tons, which they sold in bulk in
the San Francisco market at forty cents per
pound. We have no doubt had this fruit
been treated by the 'iAlden process, it would
hare retained, after cooking, its natural fla
vor and would as readily have sold for fifty
cents as forty. Th recomendation of -the
Alden process is, that fruit dried by it re
tains the delicious flavor frnit is noted and
prized for before dried. The Alden dried
fruit at the Stae Fair has often carried
away the premium for the reason the nats
ural flavor was not d stroyed in curing ;
and what can be nicer to the palate in the
Winter than dried plums and cherries, pos.
sessinir the same flavor as when plucked
from the trees and choked t
In this connection it is a pleasure for us
to announce that Mr Evans has purchas
ed the Alden fruit dryer in this city, and
that he proposes to hereifter successfully
conduct its operations. We have no fears
of the result of his labors. Different from
other men who have invested in the enter
prise, he has practical knowledge of the
business, aod wisdom sufficient to inform
(be famers as to the - trees they should
grow or the fruit they should cause their
farms to produce. This is what is needed
in the owner ot a fruit-drver, and there is
no doubt . Mr. Evuns wilt meet the en
couragement he deserves from our people.
If be is not triven this, .the farmers of
Douglas county have not the foresight or
judgment we would give them credit for.
