FIGIITING A LION.
SaziT Lake June 5. A man named
James Jackson had a terrific fight
with a mountain lion on Little
Laramie river, Wy. T., recently. He,
Bianea out to cut uuu, wiuus uu

shot gun along. Seeing some birds
perched on a rock, lie snot at mem,
but hit instead a mountain lion, till
then invisible, but which made its
presence known by yells ot rage and
pain, the charge of shot having lodged
in its shoulder anil side. Jackson
could have got away without farther
trouble, a3 the lion was fully occu
pied in tearing around, not having
noticed the man, but Jackson thought
he would like to have the lion's hide.
It would look well mounted, so he
fired at him with both barrels, filling
the beast with bird shot. But no
notice was taken of the hunter, who,
emboldened by the animal's inattent
tion, walked up close and peppered
him again with two charges. That
settled it. The lion for the first time
noticed the man and wept for him
with mouth open and tail la3hing.
Too late Jackson started to run
but soon saw it was no use,
and stood with clubbed gun.
and. as the lion camo up, hit
him over the head with it.
knocking him down. Tren another
start to run was made, but the lion
was ud and at him again, and the
man drew his pocket knife for the
fight They closed and the struggle
was long and iiaru. J.ne mans
clothes were torn off and be was
bruised and mangled, but he kept
working away with his knife and
finally cot it into the throat of the
beast, making such wounds that the
lion weakened from loss of blood,
and finally rolled over dead. Jack
son will recover from his hurts and
be as well as ever, though ho will be
laid up for some time.
THE OUTLOOK FOR WHEAT ABROAD.
California, Oregon, Chilian, Argen
tine Bepublic and Australian ship
ments, made after May 1st, will not
be available for consumption in the
period from May 1st to August 31st
British India shipments by canal will
be available from May 1st to the mid
dle of July. The quantity on pas
sage May 7th for Europe was 23,010,
000 bnshels of wheat, including 2,
210,000 bushels for the continent of
Europe. In addition to this there
will be the additional supplies from
the Baltic, southeastern Europe, Al
geria, Egypt and Morocco andthe
Turkish possessions in Europe and
Asia. The United Kingdom will be
the principal customer for tue aggre
gated supplies. English home crop
is 30,000,000 bushels to be delivered.
iinghsh stocks are now increasing
about G50.000 bushels per week, and
the prospects as it now looks, the
stocks in the United Kingdom will
have been accumulated to nearly 18,-
000,000 to 20,000,000 bushels on wheat
and flour in the importing ports on
the 1st of July next. This condition
of things, with no war iind favorable
European crop prospects, will not
much favor high pnce3 in littrope.
RICH FOR A 3I03IENT.
The British ship Britannia was
wrecked off the coast of Brazil, and
had on board a large consignment of
Spanish dollars. In the hope of sav
ing some of them, a number of casks
of the coins were bronght on deck,
but the vessel went to pieces so fast
that the only hope for life was by
taking at once to the boats. The last
boat was about to push off when a
young midsbipman went back to see
if any one was still on board. To his
surprise, there sat a man on deck
with a hatchet in his hand, with
which he had broken open several of
the casks, tue contents of which he
was heaping up about him.
"What are you doing there?" shout
ed the youth. "Don't you know the
ship is fast going to pieces?"
"The ship may go,'' said tho man;
"I have lived a poor wretch all
my life, and I am determined to die
Remonstrances were answered only
by another flourish of the hatchet,
and he wes left to his fate.
Oregon and Washington territory

Hobbles of Hjglenlsts.
There were several dozen of the
hygienists in council, each with his
individual hobby. Each thought all
the others were wrong. Each was
sure that .his own hobby was the only
one. A gentleman present said he
had taken Brown's Iron Bitters for
debility and dyspepsia; and, though
he didn't want to make a fuss about
it, he knew the use of this great tonic
to be better than all tho notions he
had heard advanced in the council.
One practical cure is worth thous
ands of guesses and notions. Thous
ands of happy convalescents speak
gratefuUy of .brown's Iron Bitters.

WESTERN OREGON MINES.
Hiklsbobo, June 3.
The greatest excitement seems to
prevail in Washington county over
the mines in "Washington, Yamhill
and Tillamook counties, and about
every other man and boy has his
pockets filled "with ore from my
ledge, and such ore as it is much
of it is common sandstone, some
" blossom" of coal, while others smelt
and snow about UU per cent, lead or
more, and, ot course, wherever you
find lead in such quantities, there are
sure to be traces of lead and other
metals. In Hillsboro they have a
crucible, and the proper thing is to
have a chunk of lead in the pocket
with the ore so as to show the assay.
I think it waa Major Barry, who
years ago, while engaged for the N. P.
R. B., in surveying for a route from
Washington county to the sea, in one
of the gulches lyingsouthwest of For
est Grove and over the mountains,
picked up three specimens of gold
bearing quartz, one of which in after
years assayed S2.50 to the half ounce.
I remember seeing the quartz, bat it
was said that after careful and super
ficial examination no trace of a ledge
could be found, and it was thought
probable that these specimens had
been picked up and carried there in
an iceberg during the glacial period.
But from the testimony of Solomon
Emerick, W. S. Caldwell, John Men
denhall and Zed Wilson, it seems
that these men took a trip out there,
and in something like tho same neigh
borhood found placers in paying
quantities. In fact it was understood
by them that on account of the sick
ness of Emerick. the scarcity of pro
visions, and ternhc storms encoun
tered that they should bury their
outfit and return in the spring, Wil
son enlisted and went to the Yakima
war and died, W. S. Caldwell went
to Portland and Mendenhall left, so
they never went back. As a land
mark, however, they noted when they
left, an immense slide showing a very
high spur of a mountain that was lit
erally torn off, presenting a perpen
dicular wall o.f several hundred feet,
with apparently a very well defined
quartz ledge the full length of its face
perpendicularly. Now the curious
part ot this is that from Tanner creek
or Hughes creek'emptying into Scog
gin's valley or tho divide between the
head waters of Tanner creek and Wil
son river that empties into Tillamook
bay quite a largo number of well
known men have seen what appears
to be a quartz mountain off in a
northwesterly direction, and though
parties of our best hunters, and moun
taineers, have sought to go to the
quartz mountain, they have signally
failed owing to the zigzag course they
have to travel on account of the ex
ceedingly rough and broken country
and the heavy growth of timber that
hides all land marks. Though these
expeditions have set out from time to
time for the last thirty years. Mr.
Frank Pomeroy of Cornelius thinks
he reached the neighborhood of this
side last week, as lie brougut away
with him a specimen of quartz ce: -taining
gold visible to the naked eye.
He weut up the Gales creek to or near
Xehalem and followed down a small
creek in a southwesterly direction.
At any rate a very large number of
people are neglecting all other avoca
tions and are devoting themselves to
hunting for mines in these mountains,
and the immense rnsh can no longer
be called fishing and hunting excur
sions. Tho writer of this remembers tho
Florence mines and the hand ho took
in the memorable stampede to the
"Bnfiialo Hump," and prefers to re
main at home where apples grow on
trees and potatoes in tho ground.
The mountains are full of ledges con
taining minerals is probably true, but
not in very great paying quantities,
though we may as well have them
prospected now as at any time. Hard
times set men lo digging in the
ground every time. H. Cave in Ore

An old physician writes to a Cin
cinnati Medical Journal, that in view
of the fact that people living at a
distance from cities are frequently
obliged to resort to cough mixtures
already put up for use, they should
provide themselves with only such
remedies as are kuown to be free from
opiates, poisons and narcotics. He
recommends Bed Star Cough Cure,

Health proved to bo purely vegetable
