From the Mine.-.
A Palouse correspondent in tlie
mines writes from Eagle City, under
date of December Dili, as follows:
After eighteen days of hard labor I
have reached my cabin in Dream
gulch. I left Evolution with twelve
men and twenty-four head of horses,
and we were eight days crossing the
trail (twenty miles). We were com
pelled to shovel our way part of the
distance through ten feel of snow,
nnd for four days fed our horses
Hour. On our way in we found aman
who had been lost for three days; he
was well nigh exhausted and would
soon have perished. "Vc are experi
encing an unusually severe storm for
this season of the year. Most of the
men who came in during the past
month have gone out to winter, as
supplies are very scarce and command
high prices. Flour brings $20 per
100 pounds, bacon, sugar, rice and
I icans bring fifty cents per pound, and
coffee seventy-five cents. It is esti
mated that two hundred men are in
this camp and will stay during the
winter. The miners who came in
during the past few weeks called a
meeting to cut down the size of the
claims, but were defeated by ten votes.
There is but very little claim-jumping
going on at present, although some
men are. disposing of part of their
claims for good prices. One company
Mild fifteen acres for $G,00!. There is
no particular excitement here at
present. Most or the miners are pre
paring their claims for spring work.
The snow in the mines is about six
teen inches deep.
Killed Ity a Falling Tree Sudden Death
Heavv llain Storm.
Ashlaxii, Dec. 2T. A man named
Harris, in the employ of the Oregon
and California llailroad company in
the Siskiyou mountains, was killed
suddenly 'this morning by a falling
tree, which struck the cabin in which
ho and his wife and one child were
living. The woman escaped with
slight injuries. The child, two years
old, was unhurt, but the man was
caught under the trunk or the tree,
and died in a few hours. The tree, a
large fir, was broken oflfby the weight
of snow upon it. The lxdy was
brought to Ashland for burial to
day. Daniel Headrick, of Ashland, form
erly of Marion county, who has been
employed as night watchman at one
or the railroad camps for the past
year, died suddenly to-day from
asthma, from which he has been a
sufferer for a number of years.
The heaviest rain storm since the
freshet here in February, 1881, began
last evening, and is still in progress.
There is snow in the mountains.
Want" Sonietliins; Done.
The standard of December 4th
says that Paul Schulze, the general
land agent of the North Pacific, esti
mates "that Oregon and Washington
Territory will ere long see the neces
sity of doing something in the way
of immigration work." For heaven's
sake, what for? To settle on land
held by that company for twenty
years? Why not let the company
nav their own bills--advertise their
own lands? The even sections in the
forty-mile limit are being taken up
fast enough. Who, that has a home
in Oregon, and is not specially inter
ested to increase the value of rail
road lands, wants to help to pay for
advertising them? The people of
Oregon have had evidence of Mr.
Paul Schulze's in them before, that
is hard to be washed out - Hun.
Escaped from Jail.
"Walla Walla, Dec 25.--Elf us and
Oweuby, both condemned murderers,
under "sentence of death, attacked
Sheriff Thompson and Jailer Will
iams at the counlv jail this evening.
The sheriff was knocked senseless,
and the jailer was most horribly cut
and gashed about the throat and
face. The prisoners escaped, but the
whole populace is alarmed and after
them. Particulars of the escape are
:is follows: As the jailer and sheriff
were entering the inside door of the
jail for the last time, about 5 r. m., on
unlocking the door, the prisoners, one
on each side, attacked them with
bricks and knives, and rendering
them senseless, unlocked the outside
uoor and escaped.
Sutekstitiox. The superstition of
the sin-eater m Wales is said to linger
even now in the secluded vale of
C wm-Aman, in Carmarthenshire
The meaning of this most singular
institution of superstitution was that
when a person died the friends sent
for the sin-eater of the district, who
on Iris arrival placed a plate of salt
and bread on the breast of the de
ceased person: ho then uttered an
incantation over the bread, after
which he proceeded to eat it thereby
eating the sins of the dead person
This done, he received a fee of 2s Gd.,

loajl and painful service. Having re

IwssiLle, all the friends and relatives
-of the departed aiding his exit with
blows and kicks and other indica
tions n their raitli in tne service
he had rendered. A hundred years
ago and through the ages beyond
that time we suppose this curious
superstition was everywhere pre
Clommenting on the fact that two
wtodku are serving on the grand jury
in Sksgit county, the Seattle Post
says: The novelty of the affair
created .wi intense sensation in the
little coraaunity. The grand jury
went to work promptly, and m

Various illustrations have been sug
gested to convey to the mind some
idea of illimitable duration. It has
been said, suppose one drop of the
ocean should be dried every thousand
years, how long would it be ere the
last drop would disappear, and the
ocean's bed be left dry and rusty?
Far onward as that would be in com
ing ages, eternity would have but
commenced. It has been said, sup
pose this vast globe on which we
tread were composed of particles of
the finest sand, and that one par
ticle should disappear at the termin

inconceivably immense must be the
period which must elapse before the

pose some little insect so small sis to
be imperceptible to the naked eye,
were to carrv this world by its tiny
mouthfnls to the most distant star

heavens. Hundreds of millions of
cars would be required for the sin
gle journev. The insect commences
on the leal of a tree, and takes its lit- J
tie load, so small that even the mic-j
roscone cannot discover that it is
gone, and sets out on its almost end
less journey. After millions and mil
lions and millions of years have rolled

load. Oh, what interminable ages
would elapse before the v. hole tree
would lie removed! WThen would the

Swan's black coil, the new food fish,
has received the endorsement of the
Boston Fish Bureau as being the
most valuable piscatorial discover'
for the last fifty years. The fish rank
next to the salmon in mercantile
value, and were caught off Queen
Charlotte Island in deep water. The
supply is inexhaustible.

The EllenshurgXetfzersays: There
are various rumors afloat as to
contemplated railroad work looking
toward Irncet bound. Uue report
says that Mr. Bennett has received
instructions to push work on the road
up the Yakima from the 25 miles that
arc now nearly complete.
Certain mining claims in the Ccenr
d'Alene district arc selling from S5,000
to $10,000. In spite of the cold,
goods, lumber, machinery, and every

going forward to the mines.
