A Great Wonder.
Many years ago, says fhe "Astorian,"
Major Thomas Charman, of Oregon City,
while passing over the route from Port
land to his home in a buggy, saw distinct
ly a double-headed snake, which great
curiosity however, escaped him. The story
ot tne snake was published, but was gen
erally doubted. It will le seen by the
following that one similar in apjearan;!e
has lecn captured alive in California. The
San Francisco Chronicle of the Sth says:
"J. W. Linden, of Los Gatos, Santa Clara
county, on Thursday discovered on the
South" Pacific coast railroad a-small snake
with two beads. It was captured alive
and brought to this city, designedly tor
Woodward's Gardens I'.x s ak) is 22
inches long, brown in color, and probably
six months old. The heads are perfect,
and each has its independent neck an inch
long, set at an angle to the other of atout
ten degrees. The reptilo is a strange won
der, and sees with facility what transpires
before and behind at the same time.
Postmasters, Airovl A number of
our subscribers complain of postmasters
throughout the county allowing persons
to come to the oflico and read the Enter
prise lefore they get it, and it is often
torn and soiled.
One subscriber says
"Please send my
paper m a wrapper so
that my ueighliors can't go to the office
and read it before I call for it. It is iren

are guilty of this meanness are better able

I want mv paper 'fixed' so that I will

complaint of a number of our iiatrons

in the future that they receive the paper
without having if'torn and soiled." Please

Enterta i n m ent. The entertainment
given at Pope s Hall last Tuesday evening
by the ladies of St. Paul's Guild, was a
grand success. The display of articles for
sale was not as lartro as usual , but they
were rapidly disposed of to the apprecia
tive audience. The refreshment tables
spread with ice-cream and other delicacies
were well patronized, and a handsome
sum was netted the Guild. The musical
nart of the entertainment, under thedirec-
tion of Mr. Sell wood, was as usual of the
best kind. 1 he songs were well rendered
and encored to the echo. It would lie un
necessary to discriminate, but it suffices
to sav "that Oreiron City has musical
talent of an unusual degree, who need
not be shame faced I efore a more metro
politan attendance. The reading and reci
tative parts were duly Appreciated, and
all in all it was the allair ol the season.
Christmas Tree. There will be
Christmas tree at the Episcopal church on
Christmas Eve., with exercises appropri
ate to the occasion, consisting of the sing
inir of carols bv thechildren of the.Sundav
School, and an address by t ho Hector, in
which some of the evils resulting from the
popular system of "self-training" of our
Ixtvs and irirls will be brielly considered.
Persons desiring to place gifts upon the
tree for children or friends are requested
to brinir them to the church as earlv on
Monday as con venient.w here a committee
will Ik in waiting to receive them. No
orcsents of a doubtful character, or com
ing from unknown persons, will be placed
upon the tree.
City Council. Special meeting 'held
last Tuesday evening, the following mem
bers present: L. T. Itarin, mayor ; Wm
Whitlock. recorder: Council men Peter
Panuct. It. Morton. Owen Wade, F. S
Dement. The following bills were order
ed paid ; Geo. Uroutrhton, lumlicr for side
walk to cemetery , $-203 13; I. Selling, $7 70
On motion the billot Water Co., laid on
the table at last meeting, was taken up
Tt was then moved that the bill be paid
which resulted in a tie two for and two
against. The mayor not having any prece
dent allowing him to vote in such, cases
decided the motion lost.
SUIT Dismissed. The case before the
Polk county circuit court, wherein Miss
Amelia Wolfarti. of this city, brought suit
against Geo. H. Lambcrson for $3,000 dam
ages, on til charge of seduction, has just
lieen dismissed at the cost of the plaintiff.
In conversation with her lawyers we learn
that Lamlierson. being a financial wreck,
they considered it folly to press the case,
knowing that, should they succeed in
procuring judgment against him, they
could collect nothing, and the ease was
therefore dismissed at their own request.-

Representative Mills this morning re
ceived the following dispatch, datet
last night, from Governor Hubbard, of
"The Sheriff of EI Paso county tele
graphs to-night that our State troops
are surrounded, and all will oe massa
cred unless relief can be had at once
Ask the secretary of war to please order
liis troops in New Mexico to make fore
ed marches for their relief. They are
American citizens. Answer.
Representative Mills was at the war
department this morning, and by au
thority of the secretary of war replied
to Gov. Hubbard as follows:
"Troops are now moving under orders
from here with all possible speed from
Forts Bayard, Stanton, Davis and Santa
Fe. Relief must soon be had."
The war department has received in
formation that the local difficulties in
El Paso county, Texas, whieh grow out
ofthe right and title to certain salt
mines has assumed quite a threatening
aspect. The few U. S. troops and State
militia in the country have been sur
rounded, and unless relieved soon it is
feared they will fare badly. A dispatch
from Gov. Kabbard asking assistance
from the President was referred to the
secretary of war and by him to Gen.
Sherman, who telegraphed Gen. Sheri
dan to send all the troops he could.
The latter replied this morning that he
had ordered all available troops from
Fert Stanton, and they have already
reached El Paso and will propably be
able to relieve the troops now surround
ed by tho mob. Troops from Bayard
will no doubt reach San Elizario to
morrow with those from Fort Stanton,
which will be sufficient to keep the
peace. The affair is purely local, and
no serious complications are anticipated.
