It is now a settled fact that Halcer City can hold us back no longer, and stages are arriving witli passengers ev ery trip. Times improving. There is no"rush" into cam), but a steady stream of teams and travel make our streejs and town fei'in lively. I The roads are being improved, and j were never better at this season of the i year. A force of men are kept con stantly at work on them. . Mr. John Ilargstroni, of California, is registered at the Alpine, hotel. Ed. Asliby and Mrs. Henry Green, of Un ion, are also at the same house. The 0. G. M. Co. will pay in checks on the fust, at least .1()',000, which will make times lively for a little while. Does Maker City or La Grande have a better pay roll? The (). tl. M. Co. expect to increase their force to at least 100 men, soon. The snow is now about all gone and by the first of .Inly there will be at least 200 men employed by tho different companies here. Messrs. Webb, Torey and Johnton arrived from Haker City, Friday, with the additional machinery for the Hope mill, which will be put in place in a few days, when they will start the same in full blast. le of good cheer, brother Jones, we will come out on top yet. The Scout is the bo.-s paper for our camp, and if you can get in here by the first of tho month you can add f)0 names to your subscription list. Messrs. Smith & Stein, of the "Nor way" ledge, are engaged in running a tunnel on the ledge. They expect to run two hundred feet and lap the ledge at one hundred feet depth. They have a very promising prospect, and are rustlers from the turn. Miss .losio Rea has taken a great many fine pictures of different scenes in the mines, two of which appeared in the last number of the West Shorn. Miss Rca is a thorough photographer and will have her gallery running in full blast by the last of this week, Judging from the money displayed on the dilfcrent gaming tables last night, tho "tin horn" fraternity are finding pastures green in Cornucopia. One thousand dollars changed hands in a few minutes time and wo have no ronton to complain of hard times, and this too before pay day. Tho tocial given ut Mrs. Easton's by tho P. U. F. A., was a grand success. It. C. Warinner was elected chairman and Miss Sadio Curtis focrotary. Prof. Jos.

Gorham is preparing to build a stono building on his lot on E street. He has a force of men quarrying ba salt rock for tho purpose. Tho North Powder base ball club coino out ahead on every game so far this fcason. They beat the Haker Citv club la6t Sunday at JJaker City. J. W. Parker is bucking like ac.iytiso about tho E. Hagerroad running across a little alkali point on his land, and is trying to take steps to claim $800 or $100 for 120 rods of fence, after letting tho petition pats through tho county court and declared a public highway, without even trying to got up a re monstrance or filing a bill of damages.

'Tis the lirt breath of summer, The weather's (pilte hot, Tlu-JpeopU' ate Mwit'iiug And bard is their lot. 'TN the lirst breath of summer, Which iloats mi the lea, And makes your red llannels Stick like glue unto thee. 'Tis the lirt breath of summer, Perfumed with "bock" beer, That makes dealers happy And people feel queer. 'Tis the first breath of summer, Rring out linen clothes, And dusters and straw hats, Likewise striped hose. 'Tis the first breath of summer, And here we will stop, Or. from sheer exhaustion We'll certainly drop. There is on dit that O. Kirkpatriek intends to learn tho art of photogra phy. Moses Austin, of Sunnnervillo, does not inteijd to open a restaurant in the Rarnhart house. The Gazette correspondent at Island City, is as far behind in his make-up as an old cow's tail. Wonder where he's been? Dr. McDonald, of the Cove, drove over Tuesday and spent tho day visit ing friends in town. A hearty wel come greeted him at every turn. In inetnory of our fallen heron, the Hag at the Island City mills hung at half mast, and seemed to say in the name of union, liberty, justice and hu manity ; proud of tho honorable scars we bear, and proud of the colors and battle Hags sacred relics of long years of fullering and patriotic devotion. Shall we forget these honored trophies bury them from sight forever? Nev er, so long as our minds retain and our hearts respond to tho memories of the eventful days of which they are priceless emblems. As well ask us to level and forget tho mounds a nation strewed with llowers to-day. Sally Ass. Elgin Echoes. Sheep-shearing in going on quite lively in this vicinity.
