Mr. Jas. W. Welch returned

waco 3Testerday, where he had been as
N. g. of Beaver lodge of Odd Fellows,
by direction of the lodge, searching
for the body of Henry Lack, a mem
ber of Chemekta lodge Salem. Mr.
Welch informs us that five bodies
have been washed up 03 the surf thi3
year nori h of north-head. As a gener
al thing the bodies are not properly
buried, and he thinks that the people
should club together, secure a site,
and be better prepared to bury the
poor unfortunates whose bodies come
in under such circumstances from the
While in Kalama last week, says
an exchange, we had the pleasure of
inspecting H. H. Holt s fish hatchery,
wherein he has now several hundred
speckled trout, hatched from eggs he
received by express from the east.
He succeeded in hatching about 8o
per cent, of the eggs sent. The great
er portion of the young trout were
recently put in the lake near Capt J.
C. Ainsworth's summer residence not
far from the sound. Mr. Holt, who
is one of the old line sportsmen of the
county, is making a start as a suc
cessful propagator of fish, and could
do much for the country in this line,
if encouraged properly.
The Bee contains an account of
the suicide at Dayton, W. T., of a
young man named Joseph L. Clarke,
on the 27th. The afiair seems to be
the result of a disappointment in love.
He had been keeping company with a
young lady in Astoria, of whom he
thought very much. The following
extract from a letter to a friend
throws a ray of light on the unfortu
nate affair: "I have got the blues
awfully; have heard bad news from a
lady friend in Astoria. Some parties
in Portland whom I had befriended
to the extent of many dollars last
winter, when I was there, have told
the worst kind of lies about me. One
of them is Mr. who lives on
Washington street. Dr. Wood has
gone to Spokane falls. I may as well
be out of the world as in it."

Where is God? My soul replies
God is in the bending skies,
On the earth, and in the air,
In the early morning gray,
In the broader brighter day,
In the twilight, in the gloom,
Jn the tomb.
In the drowsv hum of bees,
In the hirds sweet melodies,
In the murmur of the trees,
In the breeze.
In the echo from the dell,
In the whisper of the shell,
In the brooklet, in the river,
In the giver.
In the wildest winds that rave,
In the dark and sullen river,
In the breakers on the shore,
In their roar.
In the various tints of green
On von sloping hillside seen,
In the fragrance of the flowers,
1 n the showers.
In my infant's laughing eyes,
In what e'er of earth 1 prize,
In my hopes, and in my fears
He appears.
Let me turn when e'er 1 will.
In the holy Sabbath's still,
In the solunm voice of prayer,

"We are informed bv a p-cntle-man
from Astoria that great inter
est is manifested in the new rail
road scheme, at that place. Ten
thousand dollars have already been
subscribed in Astoria and it is
thought that more can be obtained.
A preliminary survey will be made
this summer through the Nehalem
vallies and a permanent route de
cided upon. This is thought to be
the onlyr practicable route, and the
value of the route is enhanced by
its fine forests of cedar trees, and
probably, inexhaustible coal fields.
Men who are posted with regard
to the character of the country,
tell us that Cornelius will most like
ly be the place where the road will
cross the Oregon Central railroad.
Our people should be awake to the
fact that this proposed road will
be of great value to the country,
and when the proper time comes,
be readv with words of encourage
ment and the necessary money to
make it a success.
Body Recovered.
Mr. Thomas B. Williams, flight
keeper at North cove, Shoalwater bay,
writes to us that on the 25th the body
of a man was picked up and buried
about three miles from there. His
features were not recognizable. He
appeared to be about five feet nine
inches in hight. He was dressed in
linen drawers, check pants, small
dark blue coat; and wore gaiters with
white cotton socks. There was found
in his pockets two dollars and sixty
cents in silver; three assorted sleeve
buttons; gold thimble; silver plated
fruit pocket knife, with A. D. B. en
graved on; a double hair comb and
steel cork screw. "I have the above
described articles in my possesion.
1 will be glad to send the articles
found on the body to relatives or
friends who may identify the person
by the above descriptions."

writing from Astoria says: "Salmon

them will never run again."
