For the benefit of tliose persons who
are contemplating a visit to the newly
discovered copper mines on the head
waters of Molalla river, I will give a
brief sketch of a trip to that place Lit
week: My experience was that there
aretwo ways of getting there walking
or riding and wo took the latter
method. Our party consisted of my
self and partner, and we were the
jolliest crowd that ever left the L,owell
of the Pacific Coast, even if I do say it
Wo went by the way of Soda Springs,
which was a lovely place to take an
hour s sleep, after riding over twenty
miles. Here we found Gov. D. P.
Thompson and ITon. Jos. Smith, who
wore recruiting their shattered health.
We indulged in a drink or two of this
justly celebrated water, and it is need
less to say that it had no .serious effect
upon any of our party.
From the Soda Springs the road goes
for about live miles over a good wagon
road, after this the trail up the moun
tains cminiences, and the difficulties
to travel appear in the shape of logs
scattered in all directions, and it takes
a good pony to m?ke the necessary
jumps to tret over the logs.
We passed Klk Prairie, a place which
probably received its name on account
of elk, that may have wintered there in
by-gone years, but as tor prairio it
would be impossible to detect the
slightest excuse for such a name. We
camped on this prairie (?) for the
night. After dismounting we found a
stitl'ness in our joints, which wo were
uncharitable enough to conclude was
the elfccts of indulging too frcelv in
soda water at tlie Springs. The follow
ing dav we arrived at our destination
the Molalla bon anz.i-and after dispos
ing of our horses, we commenced
searching for the copper lead. After
exploring the -. reek for some time, we
came across a written notice informing
us, fthi-.t the claimants, (5 in number,
claimed 1,50:) feet of the Imperial I,edge,
on Centennial creek, and we knew 'by
this that we were in the right place and
we determined to find the lead or bust.
O.ir elforts were at l ist rewarded, bv
finding a place where some of ti e
seams of the bed rock had been opened,
and indications of copper found. Those
seams vary in thickness from a fourth
to half an inch, all along the creek for
several miles, indicating that a lead
may be found within a few miles in
1 wish the company success, but we
concluded that we had seen enough to
satisfy us in regard to the prospects,
and went fishing for trout. Next morn
ing we started for home by the same
route, stopping at the Spring for rest
and more sotbi. The "round trip is
about 121 miles, and is just tlie thing for
those looking for health or fun,' but
don'tdrink too much soda water.
TKitnnu.K AcciDK.vr.-The following
letter from Uev. T. L. Jones, of. the
Clear Creek circuit in this count y, has
been handed us for publication :
Stayto.v, Marion Co., Sept. I, 1S7C.
Hkv. P. M. Si'Aiii:,- 1)i:ai; Sin; I
have mot with a severe accident this
week. My team ran away and turned
my hack over, throwing me under the
horses. One of them stepped on my
side breaking one of my ribs, and the
hack ran over my head bruising it
severely. My arms and limbs are
bruised and cue hip severely injured.
My w i fo is seriously hurt not n'ble to
sit up and I do not know how it will
termiu.it..' with her. My son Evans is
injured so that he lias to walk on
crutches. Two of my sisters were with
us. ( )ne of them ha 1 her arm broken,
and her elbow and shoulder dislocated.
The other sister had an arm sprained,
an 1 is badly bruised. Hut n y wife is
in the greatest danger. Pray for us.

Our. fun loving citizens had quite a
treat last Tuesday in the shape of a
regular "set to." The first round
ended in a fall for oneof the gladiators ;
the second round was finished bv his
head being bumped against a post, bv
the one whose eve was being gouged
out. At this important moment in the
contest, "lime" was called, and the two
shoulder strikers were led out of the
Mfsn'Ai.. The Albany Democrat. of
the iit.Si, has the following notice of
.Miss Klva Ilreyman, one of the charm
ing young ladies who visited our city
a few weeks since: " Miss Klva Hrey
man, of Salem, arrived in o--.r city
yesterday to take charge of'the Musical
Department of Albany Collegiate Insti
tute. Miss It. is an accomplished mu
sician and a very agreeable young lady,
and will prove a valuable acquisition
to our Albany society."
Reti'hned. The hunting party to
Tal.le Rock, re turned home last week,
after, as they say, a very successful war
against the bear and deer. They report
killing two " bars" and one deer, and
the smaller game they couldn't enum
erate. As a sample of their inarkman
ship, we only say that Mo., Dr. and
Dave fired six times at a grouse about
twenty yards distant, and the bird left
in disgust. They had a splendid time,
and are in good health.

Prompt attention to small ailments is
the part of wisdom. Not only does a
trifling disorder often culminate in a
dangerous disease, but those ailments
which many are accustomed to regard
as ' trifles," are so far from being so,
that thev harrass tlie entire system, by
sym;athyf to a degree which very
eriously jeopardize thegeneral health
Take for example an irregular habit of
the body, w Inch m ny persons are accus
tomed to neglect altogether. Into what
deplorable confusion does it throw the
entire alimentary region, disordering
digestion, diverting the bile from its
natural channel into the blood, and at
tenuating the vital current into a thin,
watery, unnutritious liquid. If these
are not serious consequences, we should
like to know what are. Yet how many
entail them upon themselves by neg
lecting to regulate their bowels when
they are out of order.

described, as well as in all others de
