An Exciting Hunt.
K vole Cliff, Jan. :ust, iR8i.
Editor Astekiax: Knowing how
fond" you all are of hunting stories, I
thought perhaps you could find room
for the follewing:
A gentleman in this vicinity, more
oxeitnble than judicious, recently
stumbled on a tlook of white ;eose
while out duck shooting, and, after :i
severe crawl of two hundred yards,
succeeded in bagging a couple. Much
elated, the joyful uimrod returns to
his boat, and finds himself confronted
by a shot gnn with a man behind it.
An exchange of enrtisies (and ooin),
immediately ensued, and the granger
apologised by saying, "them geese
was thoroughbred imported china
geese, elMj I wouldn't a cured." The
hunter returned home in a very de
jected ihok1, and did not fully recover
his .Hrits till dinner time, when lie
vented his wrath on the cansc of all
his trouble. Arabian Boy.

It is stated that the Northern Pa
cific and the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company will need during

laborers. It will not be possible to
secure that number in the stnte, and

cisco. The Wide West got to the Cas

From a private letter received in
this city from Mr. A. Roeder, head
keeper at the light-house on Tilla
mook rock, we are informed tliat the
storm along the coast on Friday night
was one of the most violent that has
been experienced for some time. He
says the wind seemed to shake the
entire rock. It lifted sacks of coal
and hurled them from the rock like
sacks of feathers. The seas struck
with such force as to throw the spray
a considerable distance above the
top of the light-house, completely
burying it for several minutes at a
time as if beneath a mighty deluge.
