The two-horse tread-mill sawing machine

Prineville News: Some three weeks ago
snow fell to the depth of several inches on

The latest capture of Gibbs comes from
Baker City, and we quote the following
from the Democrat of the 10th mst: "Ke-
liable news was received in this city last
night that the negro, Gibbs, the murderer
of yonng McUevitt, in rortland, was cap-
tured yesterday about noon on tne road
leading from Big Creek to Lower Powder,
about 20 miles from this city, by Ed Turner,
a farmer of that section. Turner took his
charge to Union. It is said the description
of the man arrested tallies exactly with
that of Gibbs and there can be no question
of his identity."
News: Collet Biiyeu tells us of the dis
covery of a vein of coal in the mountains
some six or seven miles west of the Ouhoco
gold mines. While he and his brother were
hunting there last week, they accidentally
discovered traces of coal where a tree had
been norooted, and upon prospecting dis
covered a three-inch vein of the product.
Mr. Biiyeu brought samples to town which
were thoroughly tested by our blacksmiths,
and pronounced first-class for their pur
poses. How extensiye the find may prove
to be is not known, but Mr. Bilveu says he
intends to further develop the find, and if
need be, capital can readily be found to
assist him. An easily worked coal mine in
or near this place is a matter of no small
value, aB might at first appear. Of course
the local demand is all that could be sup
plied, but men, that would pay well for de
veloping ths mine.
There is an old rooster in McMinnville

the partner of his joys and sorrows, etc.,

chums. Together they tied the aged swain
to a bed post and whaled him with a mop;
then they combed his hair with a rake, put
treacle and apple jack on his old bald head
and down his neck and played the hose on
him. He is now seeking tbe aid of the law

Yakima Herald: Prosecuting Attorney
Snively reports that counterfeit five, tcu
and twenty dollar gold pieces are in circula
tion in Ellensburgh and over a thousand
dollars of this coin has been passed there
and a large amount at Spokane Falls. The
pieces are of good appearance and the right
ring, but are too iight in weight. The
coins are U3Ully passed during the rush of
business or at times when the attention of
the party on whom they are to be passed is
pre occupied. Yakima business men would
do well to be on their guard and closely
scan all gold tendered by strangers.

Of the legal force recently played in Linn
county, where the two Rolfes, train wreck
ers, were acquitted and their compiuion, a
stranger, sent up for ten years, tbe Albany
Democrat says: "Three young men all to
gether in a common piece of deviltry. One
had a long tongue and went to j iil for a
multitude of years. The others went scott
free. That is a good illustration of the
ways aud history of life. There are two
men out of the penitentiary who deserve to
be thereto one who really looks from be
hind the bars. Not the worst boy in school
is always punished nor the meanest men in
the world who go to iail."

be present to g've their opinion as to the
possible amount of assistance required.
The farmers were there all right, and so
was our esteemed fellow citizen A. S. Mac-

come, but as usual they duln c, aud Mr,

To tak-j back every one.
I would not have you think 'tis me,

Astoria' Spectre B atm-.nu
Astoria, from upprr town to Aldercoye, is
excited oyer what is supposed to be ghostly
yisitations. Seyeral persons affirm that re
cently they hare, when going home late at
night, seen a spectre boat, with set sail and
lone oconpant, glide out on the bay and dis
appear down tbe river. The first man to
report the matter was a Russian Fin, and
when he told the story he was laughed at.
The next morning another fisherman named
Stevenson reported that he also bad seen
the strange boat that disappeared down the
river. With this corroborative testimony
the curiosity of tbe neighborhood was
aiouscd and the next night a watch was set
for the supposed phantom. After many
hours of waiting and watching tbe investi
gators were rewarded by sighting the ex
pected craft out in the channel. In the
boat sat a man who held the sheet and
guided the vessel. It was bright n-.ijiulight
and the boat and figure, surrounded by a
mist and halo, could be plainly seen. The
phantom boat glided swiftly seaward and
tbe men pulled away in chase, which wa
continued for more than a mile, when the
pursued came to a standstill, and the Steven
son party rapidly drew up lowaru iu
When their boits got within perhaps a
hundred yards of the spook the figure was
seen to arise and wave its nana, ana aiuiosc
simultaneously the boat tilted stern np-
wards as if eoing over a huge wave and dis
appeared. This thoroughly frightened the
party and without stopping to investigate
further they returned to the shelter of thtir

Where art thou straying,
Roaming, delaying, afar from my side,
Dear one of my heart, waking or sleeping,
Ever I in keeping sweet memories

Why didst thou leave me
E'er thou didst grieve me?
Still pining dear one for thee,
I am so lonely;
Grant me this only
Stay thou no longer away from my heart.
Why did we sever? You to be ever
Robbing my life of sunshine and bliss.
Since we were parted I have been
From loss of thy smiles and sweet, loving
Every to-morrrow brings me sorrow,
Tnat I am as far as ever from thee.
Tenderly heeding, list to my pleading-

Waiting to greet you, lingering to meet
Oh, stay thou no longer!
Come back to the heart that ia true.

for the owner of the farm saying he wanted
to kill him. The lady then retreated and
informed young Rokeof the man's presence,

The many friends and acquaintances of

seize a butcher-knite which ner daughter,
Susie, was using, and it was only after a
desperate struggle tbat tbe girl succeeded in
freeing herself from her mother's grasp and
throwing the dangerous implement into the

four persons to control the unfortunate lady
until the arrival of Dr. Hoxsey, who found
it necessary to administer strong sedatives
in order to allay the excitement and to re

The Salem Statesman says that Daniel
Webster, some half century ago, declared
tbat Oregon Territory was -so far off that
It could never be governed by the United
Slates, and a delegate in congress would
not reach - Wadhiogton until a year after
the expiration of bis term." Tbis puts us
in mind of the account given of the ridi
cule heaped upon the firnt proposition for
a railroad. "Why," remarked our revered
forefathers, "tbo bare idea is preposter
ous. O0I7 think of the difficulty of keep
ing those steam wagons on the track,
while-running at the remarkable speed of
ten miles an hour."

The Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga.:
Gentlemen Seven years ago I contracted
an exceedingly bad case of blood poison. I
tried a physician, the best at command, but
secured no benefit. My throat bejjan to
get sore, and my body covered with sores
and ulcers. Going from bad to worse, I
felt that my grave must be reached in the
near future. I gave up the doctors' treat
ment, and with a despairing hope I com
menced taking your medicine. I began to
Improve from the first bottle, and in a short
time the ulcers healed, and my skin cleared
oS and was entirely well.
One year ago a case of catarrh developed
in my system. The physician did his best,
but could not cure me ; but two bottles of
Swift's Specific gave me permanent relief.
