Editor Enterprise: For some time
past tho constant tlow of sarcasm has kept

On Wednesday last a number of tho
friends of Miss 'Clara Vinson assembled
at the residence of M r. Warner, to witness
the marriage of Miss Vinson to Mr. E. J.
Swalford, ot Salem. At 0110 o'clock the
happy pair were made as one tho bride
and groom looking so handsome and hap
py that they provoked the envy of all.
After the usual congratulations all ad
journed to another room, where an elegant
table was waiting. At four o'clock tho
newly married pair, accompanied by a
number of their friends, drove to Oregon
City, where they met the live o'clock train
and repaired to Salem, whero Mr. S. is in
business. Most assure.! ly do we all hope

one ; for while we are sorry to lose one of

Two men, named Sut.-o and Shuck, about
two weeks a,go, id ten; pled to bring a raft
of lumber down tho Clackamas from the
Githcns mill to E. 15. Fellows' place. They
were new hands at the business, and met
wil!i several mishaps. At tho mouth of
Clear creek they stranded the raft on a
shoal in the middle of the si ream, and
were unable to get it afloat again. Deing
without a boat and the water and weather
being cold, they were not in a very com
fortable situation. They shouted for help
with all fiieir might, but failed to get re
lief until the next day at about 3 o'clock,
having been on the raft about 21 hours,
when a son of Mr. Shuck heard them and
tried to come to their rescue on horseback,
but as soon as ho got in t he current the
horse turned a sumcrsauit iMid left tho
rider floundering in the freezing water.
His fat!. or shouted to him, '"Sonny, swim
siohore," and like a dutiful son he did so,
alter going down the stream near a mile
wilii tl:e current. It wiu; a hard struggle"
nii'l the chances were agaiust the boy's
reaching shore, and its a great wonder
that, he did. The horse came out all right.
At last an old boat was discovered, and
the half frozen men were rescued from
their perilous petition. They wore satis
fied with their experience, and secured
the services of an experienced raftsman,
I'M. Chase, to takw their lumber to its des
tination. The Var.hltl Vi-i.-.M-Pox Casts.
The Mc?dinnviIl-3 lleporler of last week
furnisher tho following information re
specting the small-pox eases in Yamhill:
The nerves of this community are again
in a tremor over tho appearance of this
lo'.uhesomc malady. A great many rumors
are flying, ns usual in such cases, out of
which it is dilVicnlt to cull the actual trul h ;
but we aro credibly informed that the dis
ease has really manifested itself to the fol
low ing extent : A Mr. Fletcher, relative of
our fellow citizens of that name, recently
arrived by one of the California steamers
and stopped with Mr. Almond Fletcher,
near St. Joseph. He was unwell when he
came, and was subsequently taken down
with, and treated for, as wo understand,
tho measles, lie died and was buried some
days ayo. Five of th8 Allison family, liv
ing near Fletcher's, are now down with
the disease, which is pronounced small
pox. 1. V., the oldest son of Mr. J. 11.
Olds, of St. Joe, was taken down at Dayton
a few days ago, and was carried home to
St. Joe, Where he now lies: and we are in
formed that Mr, Hiram Kummcl, of the
samo plae-e, is also sick with the dreaded
disease. We are 'glad to see our people
taking tho proper steps to arrest the pro
gressed the disease, and if they will act
with discretion, and provide themselves
with proper preventives, there is no need
of its spreading any further.
