when he returns he will not be alone.
Instructions have been received to

There is a moral in evervihinz if
people will only look for it. A few
days ago the boiler of a distilleiy at
San Francisco had just been cxaminnd
and pronounced safe, when it blew up
and killod the inspector. The moral
is perhaps not so obvious in this case
as in that of the little boy who was
drowned because lie went fishing on
Sunday, but it can be got at.
The telegraph operator at St.
Paul, Minn., thus clectricatcs:
"The lowest range of the mercury
at the Bignal office for tho last twenty
four hours was 18.5 degrees below
zero, though some private thermome
ters show 25 decrees below. Tho usual
exaggerated reports are received of the
severity of the cold at various points,
but are not believed."
We would like to get his idea of
what a cold day is. Most folks would
get left in experiencing such figures as
Under the name of tho Oregon
Southern Railway and Transportation
company, a corporation is now form
ing in this city to build a railroad from
Coos bay to Boscburg, and alio to
run a steamer between the first
mentioned ioint and San Francisco.
The proposed road would be about
ninety miles in length; would pass
through a number of rich valleys and
connect the only good harbor on the
Oregon coast south of the Columbia
river with the principal distributing
point for southwestern Oregon, viz:
Roseburg. S. F. Alia.
It is sajd of tho return certifi
cates now issued to all Chinamen
leaving for homo, that they will
all be used, whether the Chinamen to
whom they were issued ever return or
not. John treasures his return cer
tificate as he would a certificate of
deposit. He can convert it into
money in China, and then get back
himself through a side door, as it
were, without one. He knows the
ropes, and in this respect has the ad
vantage of his untraveled countryman
at home, who eagerly purchases the
document at almost any price, though
it leaves him barely enough money to
pay his passage over here.

When the alarm of fire was sounded
last Saturday morning in Seattle, the
two steam lire engines were "doad."
One was run out, and while steam was
being mado the fireman went for the
other, a new machine lately received,
and the way they got it to the fire is
told by the Herald: In the flurry of the
excitement they miecalculated the
number of men necessary to manage
it. The steamer was got out of the
engine house and inn down to the
upper end of the slip where the grade
is very steep, and the planking being
entirely free from anything that

R difficnU to hand,
weighing, as it does, about one and a
half tuns. There was a man on the
engine whose duty it was to put on
the brakes, but as soon as the descent
was encountered and the motion was
increased, ho became alarmed and
jumped off. The men on the tongue
were then compelled to let go or get
killed, and as a natural result the
engine went crashing down until it
struck ono of the fenders at the edge
of the wharf, breaking it and going
overboard in about four feet of water
where it remains. One man a promi
nent gentleman, eugaged in the hard
ware business, who requests that hia
name should not be mentioned, held
on to tho tongue until the engine
struck. He was thrown about twenty
feet and lit in the water, but was res
cued, receiving nothing more serious
than a wetting. By the lime that
matters were got in readiness to apply
water the fire had gained considerable
