"WEDNESDAY. May 10, 1S7G.
For not having a light up after
dark, fine of $200 was imposed by
Collector Webster at Seattle, upon
the master of the bark Montana,
and its payment exacted last "week.
- A good deal of heavy timber is
now being cut at Port Madison.
The Northwest took in fifteen
sticks each 106 feet long and
squaring 15 inches last week.
The mill has also been cutting a
number of pieces of heavy timber
27x41 and 42 feet long, each stick
containing between three and f our
An efi&rt was made by the con
victs confined in the Steilacoom
jail, on Tuesday to escape, by an
assault on the keeper, "Wm. Hawk.
In the melee which ensued one
prisoner, a Frenchman, was shot
and killed. All the prisoners
were recaptured except one, and
he will doubtless soon be appre
hended. The Seattle Tribune sa3Ts: There
seems to be a demand from Cali
fornia all of a sudden for Puget
Sound lumber, and the mills are
rushed with work for the Virginia
City, Nevada, silver mining com
pany,, and will be taken by the cars
rom the vessel's side to their des
tination, three or four hundred
miles distant from San Francisco.
A St. Louis scientist estimates
that the annual loss to farmers
caused by insects average $100,
000,000 ; that the chinch bug
alone, in 1874, caused a loss of
$30,000,000 to the Western States,
and that in three years the grass
hoppers have caused a loss of
$50,000,000, and yet you will find
farmers in Oregon who want to
experiment in all kinds of new
fangled seeds, without proper
knowledge as to where the seeds
Tlie Pendleton East Oregonian,
a Democratic paper, which sup
ports Lane for Congress, publish
es Senator Mitchell's report in full
on the Cascade Lock and Canal
"Bill, and says editorially of it :
Ci We place before our readers this
week the report submitted by Sen
ator Mitchell of the " Committee
on Transportation Routes to the
Seaboard,7 ' In connection with
oiher important matters submitted
by us to readers this week, the
jublication of the Report is a her
culean task for us toperform-with
our meagre assistance and limited
facilities. Nevertheless, if our
people will only read and ponder
on the immense and startling facts
produced by the Senator as to our
helpless and isolated condition,
we will be well paid for the enter
prise and expense attending the
publication of the document."
A Frog Barometer.
.Out at the Lafayette Park po
lice station St. Louis, they have a
weather prophet which eclipses
Tice and all the barometers in the
neighborhood. It is a frog of the
genus Hyla, more familiar to the
general reader as a tree-toad.
Hunt, the Superintendent of the
Park, was mildly abusing his ba
rometer one day for .misleading
liim, when the officer on the beat,
an old frontiersman, said he would
show him a trick. He took a
glass jar and threw in some stones
and a couple of inches of water.
Then he whittled out a little
wooden ladder and put it in the jar.
After some lvcly scrambling a tree-
toad was caught, chucked in and a
tin top screwed on The weather in
dicator was complete. "When it is
going to be fair weather that toad
iosts on the top round of the ladder
soletnnly blinking the hours away.
From twelve to fifteen hours before a
cliange to bad weather, "the general,"
as they caU him, begins to climb down,
and hours before a storm sets hi he
squats himself on a stone, and, with
his head just above the surface of the
water, peers aloft at the coming storm.
Let the weather be changeable and
"shifting," as "Old Prob" says, the
toad goes up and down that ladder like
a sacred middy. "When it is fair and
the toad roosts aloft his skin is of a
light grayish green. When the change
come the skin tufns black as the toad
goes down the ladder, becoming a jet,
sliining black by the time he .reaches
the bottom. The fame of the toad
has spread through the Lafayette Park
"Anew suit of old clotltes,-" was
what was given by the Astoriansto
a man who went there without a shirt
to his back. D. C. Ireland, of the
Astorian, was the donor, and the
recipient was the " pilgrim" typo
Yes ; And we feel sorry for the
clothes, to see 'em bending over big
rocks, McAdamizing Court and Wall
street with a sledge-hammer, on a
Corporation job of UZ days and costs."
