Tho iiiiigiiitlcitnt run of sulmoit In the
Coliimoiu this seaso-i is getuirally cred
ited to work done ut tho Clackamas
hatchery within the punt few years.
This idea is corrolioruted bv the fuel that
about throe yours alter the hatchery
was tirsi in os'rution there wus a grout
run of "uliiioii in the river, and from
those hu ts ouunerv men huvo concluded
that by keeping tho butchery in operu
tion there will Ih no trouble aiHiut Wi
iug up the supply of salmon in the t
linihiu. There huvo been tmpiirica
made us to w hat Is being done ut the
hatcbory this season.
From Mr. I.oiiim Hurin it is learned
that Mr. W, Hubbard is in charge ol
tho place, mid thut a ruck was put
across the the river Homo two or throo
yours sitii o, but as to tho number of sal
mon in the hmi1 or w hnt the pronsct
are for young fry. bo is not advised .
The putting in ol tho rack to stop the
tish ut lite butchery bus been dolnyod on
account of high water in the Cluckamas.
Owing to this a very largo number of sal
mon huve gone up the river, and aa there
lias boon no llshlng up thu river, they
have gomt nn up to their breeding
grounds, and will doubtless add largely
to tho nuuibei of salmon in the Colum
bia. Owing to tho fact that logging ia
heit'g curried on ipiite extensively on tho
f luckaimts it has been necessary to put
a gate in tho nick at the hatchery to al
low tho logs to pass down and this may
allow some of the salmon to pass up It
ia probable that enough salmon can ho
kept ill tho ksiI to supply ull the ogga
nHidud by the hutchery ; but the chancea
are that ft Will Iw iiciossaty to establish
a station away up tit river where eggs

her husband had her removed to the

suld there wen! live preachers after her
trying to kill her. Mrs. Hodgkin at
tempted to soothe her, und linked hor to
lie down; but she steadfastly refused.
Finally she complained of tho closeness
of the atmosphere, when Mrs. Hodgklns
took hor outside, ut thelsame time keep
ing a strict watch over hor move
ments. Alter awhile MrH. Kocbel com
plained of feeling chilly and .Mrs.
Ilodgkiiis reached inside of thu cabin for

before unyoii" could stop her. This was
about onciindu liulf miles Mow Oswego.
She rose twice, then sunk to rise no
more. She leaves her husband und four
children, und she was evidently on her

mid iill'iiir to say the least.
The bout shipped and every effort was
made to recover the body. Ah we go to

ulthoiigh every ellort has been mudo.

On last Thursday evening the ringing
of the lire Mis caused a fright of alarm
to )citotrato the minds of tho people.
When the smoke was seen arising from
tho north end of town, it was thought by
some that the now Congregational church
was on lire, but it was isM.n discovered
that the largo sash and disir factory be
longing to S. II. Call!!, Uio efficient
county treasurer was in Humes. The
different brunches of Uio tire department
quickly responded, but the dry wooden
building II lied with luftumahle material
was t.si far under way to admit ol any
possibility saving anything, so the de
partment turned their attention to pre
vent tho Hre from spreading to adjoin
ing buildings This to their credit it
can he said they did efficiently. Mr.
Culiff estimates' his damage at $7000
with no insurance. The lire was a dis
astrous one to Mr. Califf, but with char
acteristic grit he is already rebuilding a
