sixty sacks of wheat burned on his home

Her first Trip.
From Thursdays Daily. - -The
Regulator made her initial trip this
morning, leaving the foot of Cjurt street
at the hour of about half past 9 o'clock
1 here were about hfty inviffid guests on
board, including representatives of the
press Mr. J. M. Patterson, Times-Mount-
AIKEER; Frauk Middleton, Wasco Sun; aud
. Li. Brooks, Vhfomcle When the time
came for the craft to make her trial trip,
she inflated her huge lungs with steam,
and forcibly made her way into the
current of the stream like a thing of life.
This boat is a beautiful model, and
will undoubtedly be one of ' the fastest
craft on the middle riyer. It she solves
the freight problem in favor of cheap trans
portation she will accomplish the purpose
for which she was constructed, and will be
the greatest blessing ever enjoyed by the
producers of the northwest. We are sorry
that several of our leading citizens did not
receive invitations to aocompany the craft
on the trial trip, ard this lack of ordinary
courtesy under tbe circumstances appears
almost inexcusable.' '
The Regulator returned at 4:50, and land
ed at the foot of Court street. She 'made
the first hour 18 miles, and kept up an
average of 18 miles per hour. Arriving at
the Locks at 12 o'clock, she stopped at the

to Cascades and return, Thursday, Septem
ber 10th, desire to express their admiration
of the beautiful little steamer and the
manner in which she performed ber work
on the first trip, the first 18 miles being
made in one hoar, and the whole trip 45
miles in two bonrs and a half. When the
machinery is worn smooth we expect to
hear of her excelling the speed of any boat
oo the Columbia. We extend to Capt,
W ilson and his assistants our thanks for
their kind treatment:

Albany Democrat: Twenty-nine years
ago,- while driving cattle over the Cas
codes for A. Hackleman, a brother of Dr.
Gray, of this city, died near tbe summit
of the mountains, and was burled in bis
blankets. Later a coffia was taken np
aud be was transferred into it and given
a more decent burial. At that time tbe
discovery of an exceedingly fine gold
ledge was made somewhere near where
Mr. Gray was buried. About two weeks
ago Richard Fox and John Davis, who
were witH the party at that time, and
Robert Brown went out to search for tbe
ledge. After a week's hunt Mr. Fox
found the grave, iust the same as they
bad left it nearly thirty years ago, but
all their search failed to reveal the moun
tain of gold, and time bas evidently
changed it to some other locality, or
more probably it was a myth and ex
isted only in tbeir minds.

Dufub, Or., Sept, 8.
Threshing is under full headway, and
from reliable sources I learn the yield will
average about a half crop. Some have had
a yery good yield, and in eyery case that I
have inquired about have found these to be
on summer-fallowed land.
From J. D. Ball, one of the threshers, I
learn that Geo. Rice's oats went 52 bushels
to the acre, his barlev 43 bushels, and his
wheat 30 bushels.
Haverlv's barlev went over 40 Wshels to
tbe acre. Waterman's wheat on summer
fallowed went 18 bushels, and on other
land of the same quality, 6 bushels per
acre. The farms of Andrew Allen-and of
Albert Allen ayeraged about 4 bushels, and
Ward Bros, about 5 bushels; -Eli Hinman
(new land) about 10 bushels. Mr. Bell
stated that he had as good or better crop
on summer-fallow, three years ago, when
crops were almost a total failure, and
thinks that any man who cannot let a por
tion of his land rest each season had better
quit farming. This seems to be the gen'
eral impression, too, among those who
Mr. Wm. Vanderpool, above this place,
on the creek, threshed 1,300 bashels of
wheat from less than 60 acres. George No
lan ayeraged about 15 bushels.
Andrew Dufur is now threshing and his
grain is turning out well, but how much 1
do not know.
I hear of many crops that is turning out,
or it is expected will turn out, from 6 to 10
bushels. Tbe crops further out, on Tygh
Ridge, are reported some better than in this
vicinity, but were all more or less damaged
by the warm weather, and will not average
much aboye a half crop. - But with all the
disappointments of a poor crop there are
fewer discouraged farmers this year than
ever before. Wheat is so much higher that
it don't take such a large sack to weigh a
When all reports are in it will, in all
probability, be satisfactorily proven that an
aero of summer-fallowed ground is more
profitable than two acres of land impover
ished by "attempting to raise a crop on it
year after year.
. Oar school opened last Monday, with
Prof. Frazer as principal, and Henry Pit
man assistant. The reputation of tbe "Du
fur Graded School"- as an educational in
stituoion proves that Prof. Frazier is the
right man in the right place, and the inter
est taken in the school and the confidence
reposed in its pnocipal was well shown by
the large audience that greeted Prof. Fra
zier at the chnrch last Saturday evening to
hear him lecture on "Education." Tbe
Professor, in well-chosen words,stated what
he considered an education; called the at
tention of parents and guardians to the
part they must take in educating the chil
dren; advised that the child be taught to
work; and condemned the system which
turns upon the world each year an army of
educated tramps. Prof. Frazier has chosen
the vocation suited to bis talents, and
when be attempted farming during vacation
he made a failure of it. It has long been
known among his intimate acquaintances
that he desired to join the Grange, and
when he rented a few acres of land in tbe
suburbs of Dufur from Murdick McLeod,
purchased two packages of watermelon
seeds, one package of muskmelou seeds.
and boldly asked the merchant for a pack
age of "Early York pumpkins," all hands
knew that. "Prof." meant business.' - He
was very busy for some days, and tbe
seeds were in the ground! Time passed
and the tiny plants peeped out to the sun
light, and seemed to 'smile upon the Pro
fessor Rs he wateted them with an old oys
ter can. Tbe small boy smiled upon htm
also, and frequently visited the Professor's
"ranch," as it was termed, and watched
the blooms giye 'way to small, green mel
ons. Then tbe Professor began to consult
the market reports, and talk about Farm
era' Alliance and Grange, and it is said
that once he remarked something about
"controlling the melon market." Time
and cultivation made the melons large, and
as thev increased in size, tracks of bare
feet became more numerous in their midst
The melons began Jo ripen; tracks became
more plentiful and melons scarcer. The
Professor .had neither eaten nor shipped
any as yet. He said he hadn't got the
combination .exactly and always put off
picking just one day later. . Finally but
one melon remained, and the would-be
granger ' watched its color change, and
thumped it frequently with his finger
"One day more," he said, and turned to
see a bare-footed boy sitting quietly on tbe
hjllside above the melon patch. "One day
more," he continued, "and the melon will
have gone the way of its comrades." Then
he sighed, reached for his knife and severed
the melon from the yine. He carried it
carefully to the store and requested the
merchant to sell it for 40 cents and. place
the amount in the safe, to the credit of M,
McLeod, "for," said he, "McLeod was to
have one-third of the crop; but he can have
it all this season, and I will take the land
one more year and plant it to cucumbers."
The melon was purchased by a bystander.
who took up a subscription, and when it
was cut it was found to be hardly ripe
The Professor sat by and refused to taste
it. The melon was finished, and tbe crowd
dispersed. The Professor still sat and
gazed npon the scattered seeds and the wet
spot where the melon bad been. "I want
to be a granger," he said aloud, "'but I will
not make my application until I know I
have more sense than to plant watermelons
so near a school-house." - Kkno

A novel and sensational feature in tbe
Adam Forepaugh Shows is the introduction
into the arena of five full-grown ferocious
lions, all free and unshackled.
These savage monsters are controlled and
performed by Col. Edgar Daniel Boone and
Miss Carlotta, assisted by a inagnifioent
German bunting hound.
In order to insure perfect freedom from
danger on the part of tbe spectators, the
circus ring is surrounded by a lotty and
closely barred steel fence. '
All these lions are made to climb into
statuesque positions, they mount tr cycles
and propel them, assisted by tbe dog, "Sax
on," and engage in racing, harnessed to
chariots, hold banners in their mouths for
tbe dog to jump over, and are made to per
form many other startling and remarkable
acts by their intrepid trainers.
During the past season these performing
lions were the reigning sensation through
out Europe, and at London and Paris they J
were exhibited for weeks in succession be
fore immense audiences. They will be seen
in the Forepaugh Sbow, which is to exhibit
here on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 16th.
