an attempt to 'rob it was foiled by the

H. E. Nelson,' of Nehalem, who discov

and crouching behind trees. Mr. Nelson
was not armed, so he remained in the
vehicle, while the driver ventured cau
tiously ahead, pistol in hand. At a sharp
turn in the road he discovered a man
crouching behind a tree and armed with
a Winchester rifle. The driver having
the drop, the man fled into the woods.

The feature of the railroad situation
has been a blockade of cars on the'
through lines. This blockade has cen
tered at Chicago, and at other .terminal
points in the west it has also beeii
blocked. It is sad that af tjie clpse of
October there were 10,000 lpaded cars'
waiting to be unloaded or transferred on.
Chicago tracks. Western railways have
ordered their agents to accept no more
east-bound business until some light is
seen through, this blockade, Jt is ex
pected that itwill take several weeks tq
clear the accumulated traffic. The re:

The Progress of Dentistry.
Perhaps there are greater improvements
in the science of dentistry tban in any de
partment of human knowledge. This was
forcibly impressed on our mind to-day while
paying a visit to the rooms of G. E. Sanders,
D. D. 8., upstairs, over French ft Co.'s
bank, on Second street. The docto' is
graduated from Michigan university, and
thoroughly understands dentistry as a
science and does not practice it as a mech
anism. We are thankful that the time has
passed, even m this western country, when
one has to suffer tbe tortures of tooth pull
ing or tooth filling nuder the clumsy manip
ulations of him who has no knowledge of
anatomy and who does not understand the
modern appliances and use of anaesthetics t
do the work quickly aud to relieve pan
when positive nerves are the subjects
which come in contact with the operator's
Dr. Sanders has provided himself with
every accessory, and has lately introduced
an electric motor which operates the ham
iner and bur. By this meaus the strokes of
the hammer are quick ned and filling done
with less pain. The speed of the bar also
answers the same purpose, and the work is
done with greater ease to the patient and
much more quickly. The doctor uses eleo
trioity almost altogether in preparing and
filling teeth, and this has proved vastly su-
nerior tn the method formerly in use. He
has also attached his motor to a fan, which
fives a refreshing breeze, ana greatly au-
ministers to the comfort of the person nn
dergoing operations daring the warm days
of summer. If necessary, pitroos oxide.
Hay's h pnotic, ether or cocaine wdl be ad
ministered for tbe painless extraction of
teeth, or if the nerves cannot bear tbe strain
of a tedious operation,
Regulating teeth is a branch ot advanced
dentiatry, and the doctor th (roughly under
stands this process, and manufactures All
bis appliances. An irregular tooth can be
brought in proper position, and the month
made more 1 eautiful by the means now
known to scientific dentistry. The doctor
showed os casts of sets of teeth, which he
had regu'ated, which appeared in perfect
symmetry. It is a pleasure to think that
now one has not to hold tightly to some
object, in order to "screw his courage to
the sticking point when he desires an old
torn en tor drawn from his mouth, or the
decayed shell of a tooth thoroughly cleansed
and built up nearly as oli 1 as ever; bat

practice, and as he has made bis home with

sesses scientific knowledge of its relation to

A Portland paper tells this part of tbe
story : ''In 1888 Crater lake was visited
by W. G. Steel, S. S, Nicqlmi and E. D.

thing had been found in the cold and
unruffled waters of the lake, and it was a
isputed qneition whether fish could live
at tnat btgb altitude 7000 feet. About
44 miles this side of the lake', tbe gentle
men secured 460 young trout and placed
them in a bucket ot water. Carrying the
bucket between them the adventurers

Good Boada Agitation Awakening Popa
lar Interest In the Subject.
The cause of good roads goes march.
Ing on. There is no politics in it. conse
quently when people get tired of discuss
ing the presidential canvass in all of the
sharp disagreements which that exercise
implies, they can get together and re
lieve the strain, Republicans, Democrats
and the rest, on the good road issue. It
took the average American who is
nothing if not good natured, patient and
long suffering many years to appreciate
tnat bis country was cursed by its roads.
But now that he has a realizing sense of
that vital fact, he is resolutely bent upon
radically reforming them. From all
parts of the country come reports of
movements of greater or less importance
having for their object the building of
roads upon a scientific system, upon a
system which will secure roads of per
manent value, roads which will contrib
ute to the advancement of the common
prosperity. Colonel Albert A. Pope,
who is heartily enlisted in the cause of
good roads, does not express himself too
strongly when he says that "Good roads
cheapen the cost of transportation by
saving time, reducing the wear of draft
animals and of vehicles, and thus lessen"
the cost of material to the producer and
consumer. The modern development of
slums,' the wretched outcome of life in
tenement houses, can be laid largely to
the bad roads existing in the farming
districts, which in certain seasons of the
year prevent social intercourse, making
country life cheerless, isolated and nar
row." One of the interesting results of the
awakened popular interest in roads is the
pending proposition to establish a special
department of roadbuilding at the ap
proaching World's fair. The 'intention
is to give the thousands upon thousands
of Americans who will attend the fair
an object lesson in roadbuilding, the
lesson being re-enforced by an exhibit
of roadmaking machinery, which once
learned they will reduce to practice in
their respective commonwealths. Xot
a few thoughtful and . experienced men
who have turned their attention to the
road problem are inclined to believe that
its solution is largely conditioned upon
tne co-operation of the national govern
ment. Those who hold to this view
point out that in the early part of the
century no less than sixty acts of con
gress were passed after a full discusoion
of the constitutional questions involved
for the construction and repair of natural
roads, while of late years, however,
nothing has been done at Washington
for roads and practically nothing by
state or local authorities.
The suggestion for federal aid has tak
en shape in a bill which provides for the
appointment of a national highway com
mission. This commission is to consider
the feasibilitv of co-nnaratinn hv Tintrinn.
al, state and county authorities i2 a gen
era system of road construction; to de
vise and formulate plans for the estab
lishment of a national school of roads
and-bridges; to procure the exhibition at
the World's fair of the best methods and
appliances for roadmaking, and to pro
vide for practical instruction m the art
free of cost, and collect and disseminate
general information regarding roads and
their improvement. -1 here are a num
ber pf other provisions in the bill, but
these are its mam features.
The measure, sq far as its general prin
ciples are concerned, has, as we have
stated, many level headed backers. And
even those who question its feasibility
may wen accora it a welcome, since
necessarily it will lead to that full and
free discussion of the general subject of
roadmaking which ought to precede any
final determination. This is one of those
peaceful revolutions which never go
backward,, and which ought to go for
ward so dominated by common sense as.
ultimately to give the country a system
of roads which shall, prove a great bless
ing tq our countrymen and help Uncle
6am to achieve his manifest destiny.

The Columbia Daily Calendar.
This is on.e ftf the rnsst valuable daily
pad calendars. The calendar for '93 is
of the same general design as that of
previous years, consisting of 366 leaves,
one for every day in the year, and a cal
endar for the entire year. The day of the
wek, of the rnonth, and of the year are
given, and on each leaf is a short sermon
on the "-Gospel of Outdoors, Health and
Happiness," with valuable, hints on prac
tical road making. The leaves are so
arranged 'hat there will be no stub left,
and each one can be referred to at any
time during the year. The pad is upon
a metallic stand of ivory black, arranged
so as to rest upon the desk at a conveni
ent angle. The pad matter, which in the
aggregate is enough to make a book, is
all fresh and new, and is of more pertin
ent value than that of any previous cal
endar. The calendar is issued by the 4

The movement made in the state of

World's fair managers, of Massachusetts
to urge upon the director general of the
exposition the great importance of 'a
comprehensive exhibit of the construc
tion and maintenance of roads, m which

Of American country roads is proverbial.
Th" pecuniary loss inflicted upon the
United States by bad roads in one year
is very great. People in cities may think
that this does not concern them, but
they are mistaken. The marked check
upon trade each spring, owing to well
nigh impassable country roads in some
sections of the country, is significant evi
dence of tbe extent of the actual loss in
flicted by the maintenance of highways
which would not be tolerated in any
civilized country in Europe. A road-,
making exhibit at the fair, if properly
managed, might serve a valuable educa
An Important' Consideration.
One of the most important things to
be considered in the matter of roads im
provement is the width of wheel tires.
Narrow tires cut up the roads and form
On all freight and market carta fha
tire should be from 4 to. ft inches wide.
On all four wheeled freight and other
vehicles, for heavy lading the width of
the tire should be from 4 to 6 inches.
The fore, axle of thelatter class of
vehicles should be 10 or 14 inches shorter
than the rear axle, according as the tire
is 4 or 6 inches wide, so that the hind,
wheels may run in a line an inch outside
of the surface rolled by the fore wheels.
Thus the carts and wagons became roll
ers, not cutters. The cart with a 6-inch
tire rolls 1 foot in width whenever oa
the road, and when loaded, is a heavy
roller. The wagon rolls from 18 to 4

Hunting stories are as mnch renowned for
their elasticity as fish "yarns," and we were
forcibly reminded of the fact this morning
while listening to Mr. J, E. Hardy, relating
his experience in shooting geese. To giye
the matter in full would take several col
umns of the T.-M., but the principal point-
may be stated in a few sentences. Geese
fly at the rate of 1200 miles in 12 boors;
that is, wben at leisure; bat, in an emer
gency, they may double this speed. He
has seen a flock of geese make seven miles iu
a minute, by the watch, and they fiVw
along the same as on a holiday jaunt. To
be successful in killing geese, one must set
his decoys and camp in the ditch, and shoot
quickly. There is no nse in attempting to
hunt geese on the river; they must be de
coyed away from the water, and as the
Sock comes within proper distance fire both
barrels. Mr. Hardy is an artist with tbe
brush, and he is no amateur, by any means,

Mr. W. R. CantreU cme to town last
evening from Tygh, and from him we
learn the particulars of his ' encounters
with one of Sam Patteason5 cougars last
Sunday on Juniper flat. Some days since
the two panthers that Patterson captured
and caged rgalned their liberty and
Sam killed one in attempting the recap
ture and the other he brought back.
The -cage consists .of a large
dry-goods box with boards nailed over
the top, and during Mr. Cantrell's visit
the cougar managed to escape. Being
a good horseman, tantreii went arter
him on the back of a favorite animal,
lasso In hand.' Coming up to the brute
within proper distance, the rope was
thrown around ,his neck, and in his
struggles to free himself he became
choked, apparently, to insensibility. Can
treU jumped oi! his horse to secure the
animal, and had securely bound his
hind feet when, not being on his guard,
the panther reached . his forward paw
across his face, scratching it in several
places, but not in any manner seriously.
Mr. CantreU believes in fun, and can ap
preciate a joke e ual to any one; but
"bucking" against such tigers as these
mountain lions prove themselves to be,
