Mr. EniTon: Tiie pleasant weather for
some time past has kept jrour correspond
ents so busy with their farm work that
the few who were to keep you posted
have had no opportunity to write. I will
now, however, do what little I can to give
vou a few items. As this is the last time
1 shall attempt to write for vour worthy
paper, I trust you will be" sufficiently
pleased to learn that you are rid of at
least one ot your correspondents to give
my last few items a place in your paper.
Our hill is slowly improving in looks.
Among the improvements is a hew paling
fence around ttie yard of Capt. Apperson.
Also the cutting of about 3tXJ cord of wood,
which makes a marked improvement in
the looks of his place. The Captain is
one of our most worthy neighbors, and
deserves the thanks of all tor the interest
he takes in the neighborhood.
Messrs. Williams A Law ton are slashing
ten acres of tir brush for wheat this fall.
Mr. Meters is having a large quantity
01 wood cut ior summer use.
Mr. Holmes is having 150 cord of nole
wood cut, and live or six thousand rails
Several parties have been held during
the past week. Among the first, a few of
tne people 01 1110 inn garnered at one ot
the houses to welcome one of Portland's
fairest young ladies to our circle. We
"hear" a very pleasant time wits had and
all retired well pleast. ith the evening's
Friday, Feb. 0th, Mr Partlow gave a
party, and as Mr. Partlow 's parlies al
ways are a success, it is not necessary to
say that this one passed olf very pleasant
ly, and at three o'clock dancing stopped
and all left for their homes.
Monday, Feb. 12, a reception was given
by Mr. ami Mrs. Wheeler, at the r siiience
of Capt. Apperson. I shall not attempt to
tlescrilie the newly married pair, as I can
not think of any words that would do
them justice. Among the guests we no
ticed several Canemah ladies, and also
some of Portland's ladies and gentlemen.
It would be hard to tell who the belle of
the reception was. Indeed, the writer was
so bewildered by the array of beauty on
every side that he could not think who
was the belle. As for the gentlemen, we
believe Mr. S., of Portland' attracted the
most attention, lit; and his piece of wed
ding cake afforded abundant amusement
for all. At 12 o'clock i-n elegant supper
w as spread for the guests, and all did jus
tice to the repast ; indeed, the mo..t exact
ing ej icure could not have asked for any
thing more. The only tiling we missed
was our worthy host, Capt. A., who was
necessarily absent in Portland.
A few of the guests dropped in at Mr.
II. 's on the following evening, but owing
to absence I am unable to describe the
evening's programme. We lx lieve, how
ever, that the evening passed very pleas
antly. We had thought of asking Camilla Urso
to give an entertainment at our school
house, but as she is compelled to go to
Europe soon, we will excuse lu;r this time.
And now Mr. EJitor I will not trespass
any further upon your good nature. I
hope the next one wTho writes will do bet
ter than Yours Truly, 'Fakmkk."

Editok E:TKnFiusi: : Please be kind
enough to give the citizens of New Era
spacii in your columns correcting the false
statement published in your issue of Feb.
lith, under the heading of "Be Kind to
ttie St: angers," purporting to have come
from one Foster. Strangers not ac-
quainte:! with I he citizens of New Er.t or
this J. G. Foster might be led to believe,
by th; publication of the l.th, where Fos
ter states that "not one of them tendered
their services" in the case of the unfortu
nate death of Joseph Sperl, that the citi
zens of tiiis place and vicinity were very
heathenish. Now. we d.--sire that stran
gers may have the truth, and we will
give you a statement from Mathins Senn,
with whose family Mr. Sperl bad lived
in the Etst for' many 3' ears, emigrated
vi'.h to Oregon, and was living with at
the I i:::e ol" Ins dent h :
"Joseph Sperl met with bis death sud
denly 1-1. l'ih, by the limb of a falling
tree sti iking I. mi on the head and frac-
t-.i:ing his skull and cau ing death in a
sli.av lime. lie had no relatives in this
Slate, anil was making his home with

New Era and vicinity assisied i.i taking
the corps.: tothe house. A citizen of New
Era v. cut to Canemah and ordered a cof
fin for me. A citizen of New Era furn
ished team and wagon to bring the coffin
and carry the corpse to the grave at Can

zens of New Era. 'Other citizens of" New
Era tendered; their servicts, which were
not needed. On the whole, as I know mv
neighbors and friends of this vicinity, if "1
had needed additional assistance, 1 would
have felt tree to have asked it, of any citi-
.en oi ew r.ra or K in1t3-. M. Sk:;n.
An impression might be left on the
reader of the item in last week's paper,
that the whole funeral and burial of M r.
Sperl were pel formed by his own family.
By the .statement of Mr. Senn it will be
seen that he had no family. Only desir
ous that the truth should "be known, for
the vindication of our own conrtesv, we

Description of that "Oiscove-."
Molai.LA, Feb. 12, 1S77.
Editor Extkrpkise: No doubt jour
readers are anxious to hear something
more about those big bones alluded to in
your issue of Feb. 1, and of the tesultof
the investigation of the committee alluded
to. After careful investigation the
committee find that the discovery
was made some time ago, but has been
carefully concealed, to prevent excite
ment, until a 1 the facts should le kn wn.
Some time ago it was reported to me that
some ancient ruins could be found near
the extreme end of Molalla Prairie, and a
committee was appointed to excavate and
see what could be found1. The first work
was begun on one of those elevations
about six feet high, and soon struck on
what appeared to be a very large jaw
bone, as the upper or rounded end first
appeared. Aiier mucn lanor, (as me
ground was hard), the committee reached
a depth of six feet, found what ap
peared to be a species of anti-deluvian
man. This strange order of being is cer
tainly of a very early origin, and is rather
alcove the ordinary height of man of this
day, with nasal organs well developed ;
and what is most strange, this mummv
retains all its natural'features, except it is
thin and dried up, and when unearthed it
exhibited signs of life. A slight trembling
of the knees was discerned, then it began
to talk in a language none could under
stand, then sank awav. Its head was
small and round, and evidently never
contained anything; at least we found it
hard to make an impression upon. The
committee named it Mega Infanti. Any
one doubting the above, can see the relic,
as it is now on exhibition at Bachelor's
Hall, and will be exhibited at the ball at
that place on the 14th. JJy order of

Letter from Saudj-.
Editor Enterprise : In justice to the
living as well as the dead, grant me space
in your paper to correct some of the state
ments made in your last isne, concerning
the. death of Mr. Robert Wilsen. On Sat
Vrrd,y ni-ht. lOth hist., Mr. George
1 lodges and some of his friends from
Milwaukie were to have a "ni""( r rer
tormance" at what is know n as'Gcrdcs'
Hall. There were no w omen present and
but a few men. An altercation arose be
tween Hodges and Wilson, when Hodges
pulled his coat and started for Wilson,
who was in the act of pulling his coat and
could not defend himself. Hodges struck
bun several times, but no knife' or other
weapon was used. Wilson started for Mr.
Manning's grooe-, and in going there
fell over a stump.. He told Mr. M. that
he was hurt and wanted a ! -ttie of brand v,
which he poured in his hand and bathed
bis face and neck where Hodges had hit
him He seemed to breathe with difficult v.
He then left the store. Mr. Fritz Stolke
started out in a few minutes and found
.Mr. w nson.aiid took him to his-(Stolke's)
home, laid him on the bed and did all
that he could for him. Mr. W.'s face anil
neck were, in fifteen minutes after the
figiit, swollen to twice their usual size.
He told them he was going to die, and
sent Tor Mr. J. C Branham, the Justice in
this precinct, as he desired to make his
will. He also sent for Mr. S. D. Coalman,
to whom he gave many messages for his
hjniily .speaking of each member bv name.
He desired a portion of the Scriptures
read but the praver of the dving is sa
cred, and we will draw a veil over ihe last
hours of the dying man, when the soul
passed into the presence of that Godot"
Love, whose mercv endureth forever. His
last acts were certainly not those of a de
liberate suicide. There was nothing to
indicate poison in the stomach, the swell
ing did not extend below the chest, and
no froth came to the lips. If he was
poisoned, the poison must have been com
municated to the system through the
wounds on his neck. In justice to Mrs.
Wilson, let me say that their pecuniary
fortunes were at a low ebb, and they
thought they could do better up the val
ley. Her sons ow n land nine miles from
Harrisburg, and she told me that she
thought it would be better for them to be
together, and then she could keep house
for her sons. Mr. Wilson loved his chil
dren with all the devotion a nature like
his was capable of feeling. He also told
me that he thought it would be better for
his children to be where thejr would have
all the advantages of good churches and
schools. He was making every prepara
tion to go to his family, intending to "start
the next Monday. His death was mys
terious, to say the least. He was not sick
over twelve hours, dyingabout six o'clock
Sunday morning, the 11th inst.
Sandy, Feb. 17, 1877. Truth. '
If l3r any reasonable argument any citi
zen of Oregon City can convince me that a
paltry fence around a dwelling containing
a case of small-pox can confine an imagin
ary vitiated atmosphere from floating
wherever the wind listrt'u, I also under
take to convince said citizen that an addi
tion to a garden lence in the north end of
the city will be a safe protection from
ague, chills. iSzc, arising from the marshes

members of t he family will prevent them

Murderer Cauoii r. Last Thursday,
Mr. Haworth, marshal of the city of De
catur, Ills.. accompanied1 by officer McCoy
of Portland, arrived in this city, in search
of John D. Huffman, who had murdered
a Frenchman named Combier, near Mil
umie. Ills., c n tho 4th of January. They
found their man at work cutting railroad
ties near Canhy, and as soon as he was
arrested he confessed his guilt, ilcwnis
to be very simple minded and hardly
realizes that I: is life will pay the penalty
for the terrible deed. M r. "Haworth left
on the last steamer with his prisoner.

HymeNial. East Saturday evening, at
the CIL'F House, in this 0U3-, Mr. Wm.
Elliott and Mrs. Annie Newman were
made man and wife. Rev. J. T. Huff
was the officiating minister. A large
number nf friends we-re present, and a
pleasant time was had. Wiliiam is a
good fellow, and we extend to the happv
pair our heartiest congratulations, and
hope that their pathway ma' bo one of
pleasantness and prosperity.
ApoT.oriETic We tender our humble
apologies to the residents of New Era
precinct for whatever mis-statements w
allowed to anpear in our item headed
"Kindness to Strangers." M r. Foster was
our authority ami vouched for the truth
fulness of the matter in question, and wc
cheerfull3r give spaco for its refutation.
The Democratic; politicians of Oregon
must have been guilt' of some ver3r ques
tionable acts, much worse than those al
ready mentioned, whm three of them
find "it necessary to visit the Paper Mills
at Oregon CU3' to see that nil papers, dis
patches, etc., bought as old paper, were
destroyed in their presence. We wonder
how much more infamj- thej' have buried.
Smai.t.-Pox. Another case of small-pox
has made its appearance in this city. Mrs.
A. Levy had been indisposed for some
days last week, and on Saturday the doc
tor wascalled in and pronounced it to be a
case of small-pox. The city authorities
have taken due precaution to keep it from
Tiiievks. Some person carried off some
clothing from the Cliff House last Satur
day, belonging to Col. W. E. White. The
clothes had been placed on the fence in
the rear of the hotel to dr3, and when the
Colonel was ready to don himself for the
wedding, they were missing. A gold pen
holder and pen vere also taken.
Silver Mines. Mr. C. S. Miller, of
Wasco county, is organizing a company in
Portland for the purpose of working the
Monumental Mine.Granite District. Grant

rich, and assays as high as $3,500 per ton.

Diseaste Grows Apace,
Like an ill wind, and connot be mastered too
early. vVhat is a trifling attack of sickness
to-day may, if unattended to, become a seri
ous cas? in a week. Small ailments should
bo nipped In the bud before they blossom In
to full blown maladies. If this advice was at-
tf nd--d to, many a heavy bill for medical at- j
temlane might bo avoided, When the liver'
is disordered, the stomach foul, tho bowels
obstructed, or the nerves disturbed, resort
should nt once be had to that supreme rem
edv, llostetter's Stomach Bitters, a few doses
of which will restore healthy action and put
the svstem lu perloct order. It is a wise pre
caution to keep this Incomparable preventive
in the house, since it checks, with unrivalled
promptitude, disorders which breed ot tiers
far mor dangerous, and in their latest devel
opments are themselves often fatal.

Gentlemen Seeing numerous certificates in
the Maine J-tnn' r, endorsing the merits of
the (ireat l.ung Remedy, Wistak's Pai.sam
ok Wild C'iikickv, I am induced and I take
great pleasure in giving publicity to the great
cure it accomplished in my family in the year
lsfni. During the summer ot that year my son
Henry A. Archer, now postmaster at this
place, was attacked with spitting of blood,
cougl , weakness of lungs, and general debil
ity, so much so that our family physician
declared him to havea"scated consumption."
He was under medical treatment for some
time, but received no benefit from it. At
length, from the solicitation of himself and
otln-rs, I was i"diiced to purchase one bottle
of Wistar's Balsam of WiLnCitERRY.which
benefitted him so much I obtained another,
which in a short time restored him to his
usual state of health. lean safely recommend
tins remedy to others in like condition, for it
is, I think all it puriirtsto be the great
LUNG RKMEDY FOR Til K TIMES!
The above statement, gentlemen, Is my
voluntary! offering to you in favor of your
Balsam, and is at your disposal. A.Archer.
To all who are suffering from the errors and
indiscretion of youth, nervous weakness,
early decay, loss of manhood, Ac, 1 will send
a recipe that will cure you, FKEK OF
