Mr. John Souder and Mr. Albert
Scott, of Preston, Nebraska, relatives of
Jos. Yowell, of Pyle canyon, arrived in
this city a few days ago, looking for a
location. They are very much pleased
with tho appearance of tho country
and think that Union is tho placo for
thoin. Hefore locating in this country
thrir business will take them hack to
Nebiiutai, and they want to take with
thorn a lot of cheap horses, as there is
a demand for low ricol hews there.
They say that the Intrd winter, cy
clones and blizunrds of that country
have killed a great number of horses,
mid the farmers being unable to pay
much to replace them, the cheap ani
mlsto lw found in sonic parts of this
oountrj will exactly fill tho hill. Doubt

an uuhappy willing lias conic t tin'

of feeling si ems to exist. We have in
terviewed several of our young men
and they niv it is a dinbolieul outrage.
The facts hi the case as near as we can
get at them are as follows: That pet
crow that Jerry Thomson has been ed
ueiitimr for some time has trot so he
can speak English moderately well, j
and now sits in the trees in front of the
house and every time n young fellow
passes by, he sings out, "Papa! papal
Como here, papa! Stop that!" in a
voice so like a human that you would
declare it to be a little child speaking.
Of course this is very annoying and
we sympathised with the young dude
who'expliiincd the ease to us. "You
see" he t aid "that it's most item un
pleasant for a fellah to be promenading
and conversing with his best girl don'

and addwess you in that numnah don'

and throws him in an enibwarrassing

the people cannot remain quiet in this

of ours, we m lift insist on Ins taking

llroiher Saltier, of the Centervillian,
is no slouch, and is always prepared
for emergencies, liceentlya man from
Weston went over to Ccnterville to
wallop him. The impending catastro
phe, which, however was happily aver
ted, is tbrillingly described by Sattlcr
as follows: "Had ho attempted to
! raise his hand toward us while in this
I ollice, would never returned to Weston
' to tell the tale, as he would have been
dropped by our faithful helpmate in
two short seconds. Hditors in the far
wide west are always prepared for such
occasions." We are under obligations
to our brother journalist of Umatilla
county for causing us to see a way out
of some of our dillicuitics, that had not
' occurred to us before. We catch on,
j simultaneously, as it were. A few of
j these reptil'-s around here who have
been thirsting for our blood are invited
I to drop into this od'ice at any time. If
I our "helpmate" don't put a hole through
! them about the si;:e of a stovepipe, it
will not. be our fault.
Quite a nuniber of our subscribers
have fallen behind on their subscrip
tions. We have reminded them of the
fact several times, but still there are
.-onie who do not respond. We are not
running this paper for anything but
tlio monev lucre is in u, aim as we en-
there is in it, and as we en

usual. Next week if you do not re
ceive, the paper you will understand the
reason. It will then be in oilier for
you to come forward, pay up, and re

out any back talk. We dislike to lose
any of our friends and readers, but they
must bear in mind that it takes money,
and lots of it, to run a newspaper.

The following item is going the
rounds of the press : "A woman sold
her wash-tub to a party of rilieinen for
a target. They paid her $1. fit) for it;
and after they had gone home she went
out into the field and brought it back
as good as it ever was." The vcrracious
chronicler does not Mate where this
feat happened, and leaves us somewhat
in doubt as to whether he refers to the
Covo or High Valley team. If either
of these arc meant the matter bhould
An exchange remarks "that men who
are advertised in their papers are the
nen who transact tho businees of the
town. You can pick up a newspaper,
and in a few minutes tell who does thu
Imying'and selling and keeps up the in
terest of the place. A newspaper invu-'
ribly rellects the worth, the enterprise
and inleligence of the comunity in
which it is published." .
