FINDING A STONE HAN.
He is UncartLed Seven Feet Below the
Great excitement prevailed on all
Hides yesterday as the report spread
that a great curiosity in tho shape of
a stone man was on exhibition at the
Beehive saloon. Large numbers were
visiting and some endeavoring to gain
admittance to tho 100m where the
great magnet was situated, and many
were tbe surmises and conjectures ar
rived at concerning the origin of tho
wonderful spectacle. By some it was
supposed to be a petrified man; by
others a stone or graven image. It
was found at Happy valley, in the
Metchosin district, on the farm of
Mr. Peter Dubois, by some men who
were digging a well, at a distanco
of seven feet from the surface and
lying in n horizontal posture. It
was unearthed on Monday and taken
to town yesterday, morning. There
are many points to indicate that it
might have been once a human be
ing, but others which tend to an op
posite direction. The head seems
very perfect, with a portion of the
top of the noso wasted away. No
ears remain, but the auricle openings
ae visible. The cavities of the eyes
arc large and hollow, bearing no ev
idence of the eyeballs. Both arms
are off, leaving stumps about six
inches in length. Tho ribs, or trac
ings of them, aro quite visible, and
also tracings of other portions of the
body. Tho legs are off, but Mr.
Dubois state3 that one arm and one
leg are in tho place where the trunk
was found, and that one of tho feet,
which is of very large size, has six
toes. The back is quite flat, as if at
ono lime heated and while partially
so, to have assumed that appearance,
or. if not by tbat means, to have be
come so shaped by the hand of the
artist The face is quite full, with
regular features, and showing repre
sentalions of the teeth. In weight it
must range in tho vicinity of half a
ton, as the services of three mon'are
required to turn it up or handle it.
Following are the dimensiens: Size
of head, thirty-six inches; length of
face, fourteen inches; size of neck,
twenty-seven inches; across the shoul
ders, twenty-four inches; length of
body, four feet nino inches. The
probable length of the body was or
iginally about eight to ten feet. Here
is a subject for antiquarians to deal
will), and may lead to some revala
tions. A twin brother was unearthed
a few years ago in lower California.
Gone With a Handsomer Man.
Charles B. Stephenson.ot Washing
ton county was in this city yesterdny,
looking for a wife who deserted his
bed and board and started for the
east with another man, who, it is
said, has left a wife behind him. Ste
phenson had previously telegraphed
Chief of Police Purrish to arrest the
woman here, but the chief having had
considerable experience in making
arrests of that kind, where the party
requesting it would afterward fail
to even return thanks, let alone pay
any ccsts, did not regard tho dis
patch, and the eloping couple passed
through the city unmolested, on
their way to Missouri. Stephenson
describes his wife as having "black
hair and black eyes, wears a black
dress, and is about 21 years of age."
He feels deeply tho desertion, and
while at the station cried like a child
over his loss. Mrs. Stephenson leaves
behind her two children. Their
home is about five miles from Forest
There may be considerable litigation
over the building of the fish ladder at
the falls of the Willamette. The laud
on which the foot of the ladder will
rest is claimed by the Oregon Bail
way & Navigation company, and is
leased to Oregon City parties, who
will not allow tho laud to bo used, as
proposed under any circumstances.
Developments are being awaited .with
interest It is though tho state cau
condemn the land when it is needed
for so good a public service.
The Walla Walla Slatxma7i a few
days ago receivol reliable information
that the Northern Pacific Bailroad
company had concluded to dispense
with the services of their laud agents
along tho line of their road, leaving
one each at Portland and St. Paul.
This is brought about, undoubtedly,
from the fact tht.t tho greater portion
of tho land along their grant that is
of any account has been sold.
The Cologne Gazette publishes an
article similar to the ono recently

Twenty-nine thousand land claims
within the states and territories cov
ered by Commissioner Sparks' order
of April 30, upon which final proof
has been made, await the issuance of
patents. Tho order suspended the
issuanco of patents, with the idea of
postponing final action until special
agents of the general land office could
personally inspect tho claims. For a
time the clerks in the office went on
filling out patents as before, but they
were not presented for signature.
Between 6,000 and 7,000 of these were
written before tho 4th of July; bear
ing date in the "one hundred and ninth
year of our independence," which
must be rewritten to correct the date,
and tho records of the office must al
so be made over, so far as these pat
ents are concerned, for the reason
that it is a rule of the land office that
no erasures or interlineations shall
be made in natente.

Destroy that Sign.
One may feel that he is getting old,
but ho naturally dislikes that any
thing about his appearance should
advise others of the fact Yet nothing
does this so effectually as thin and
falling hair. No woman wants to
marry a man, and business firms hes
itate to employ a man, who shows this
fatal sign. Parker's Hair Balsam is
worth to you, in this rogard. more
than its weight in diamonds. Use it,
and have pleutiful and glossy hair.

One of the chief reasons why Hostetter'a
Stomach Bitters is such a sure defence
against chills and fever and every lorm 01
nialaiial iJi-casp, is, that it does away with
liability to the disease, by reforming irregu
larity of the biliary organ in advance of the
arriv.il of the season when the disease is
prevalent. There Is no finer fortifying pre
i.ralivc for those about vblting or emigrat
ing to a locality where the miasma-'aint ex
ists. Tliero is no certain immunity from dis
eases in an endemic or epidemic form, to be
se cured by the uie of the average tonics and
nutl-spasmodic. But where quinine fails
the Bitters succeeds both in preventing aud
curing. Moreover, it removes every vestige
of dj.speii.sla. and overcomes constipation,
rheumatism, inactivity of the kidneys nnd
bladder, and tranquillizes and strengthens
the nervous system.
