Lost Prairie, in Wallowa county, hy
Dr. .Mason. That we still have some
wild and unsettled legions in Oiegon
will not he questioned :
"The Hid. of this month I serihhled
you a few lines and starred them out
hy way of Assotin, hut donht very
much whether they over reached you.
I write this not knowing how or when
1 can M-ntl it out.
Ahmit three week's ago two young
men started from Paradise prairie to
Lostine, on snow shoes, for the mail,
They were out six days, on two day's
rations, got lost and had hard work to
get hack. Two more young men then
started and went through, hut hrotight

Snow is reported (! lo 10 feet deep
between Kcd l'ir springs and Mud
prairie, which will keep us corralled
for a long time, We have had a very
rough winter, but not cold with the
exception of the first three days in
Felmiary. A good deal of rain and
snow with an occasional (Irande Hondo,
breeze. Snow on our stock ran go fell
from 1 to 8 inches deep and lay 2(5 days.
Horses came through without a bile
of hay, and my cattle on one-half trm
outside except Assotin and on the riv
or below the I nilian gardens, where the
loss of stock is heavy. The ground is
now bare and the stock kicking up
their heels on green gi;ns, and every
thing is lovely except to tobacco-ehew-ers,
the weed being nbu exl.
Xow, "it never rains but it poms"
says the old saw a few of us have
left civilization, schools, and nearly all
the conveniences of life, ami settled in
(he wildest region in Oregon to huild
up homes for ourselves and families,
and mi far have succeeded. We have
passed safely through tin extremely
rough winter, and yet "to a man up a
tree" it looks like there wore some on
the outside with Hhylook fingers who
think we are worth picking. (Hero the
writer complain of bad treatment on
tho part of certain individuals in this
city who promised to pay his taxes.)
Last Jail 1 went to the place of holding
elections to pay my taxes on the day
that tho sheriff advertised that he or
his deputy would be there, but
! deputy put Jin an appearance. I lore
we are, snowed in, with a prospect for
more delinquent taxes. It's a "bully"
chance for our worthy shorill to rake
in some "fat" mileage, if ho can travel
on snow shoes and is not afraid of
cougars and big gray wolves. At tin
same tune there are men
more properly than I have, who are
exempt. AlcC'ubbin ysver visited this
precinct, hut sent Krank I3rovn. .Some
of the tax-payers were absent and some
evaded through the grossest fraud,
which they boaut of.
Now, a few more words and I will
stop. Wo have a lino country bore
wood, water and grahs without end,
the devil of it is (and it's a matter
tho legislature or county court ought
to look after,) the six children born
in this community since J came, are
all girls. Poor show for raising voters.
What there is here to produce this
phenomenon I don't know,
What wo need here are immigrants
men, while men men with "git up"
in them. (Jood government land is
an object, and 1 suppose there are a
great many immigrants arriving from
the Kant. Send them hero and I can
fhow them as good quarter sections, j
