This is tho first day of Lent, a sea

throughout tho Christian world.
Tho testimonial of the citizens of
Astoria to Messrs. Church and Har

The East Oregoniaii says: The
severe winds of two weeks ago blew a
sea gull over the Cascade mountains
that landed at Hawn & Guyer's mill,
in Camas prairie, where it was killed
by dogs. This is the first instance
reported where a sea gull has been
found east of the mountains.
Willamette valley papers say the
prospects are that beef cattle will bo
high next spring. Montana territory
has for a long time been the pasture
for large herds, but latest reports in

most disastrous known in the terri

alleled. There was a large and interesting
meeting of the Astoria building and

Yesterday evening, just before the

A NARROW ESCAPE.
Saving the" Cost of a Pilot Wrecks
W. H. Macy."
The American ship William H.
Macy had a narrow esoape from
being totally wrecked last evening on
the fockB off Fort point. About nine
o'clock, whilo passing in with her
courses set, she struck on a submerg
ed rock directly in the lima between
Fort point and Limb point. The tide
then was at tho lowest, witn only six
feet of water on the rocks, and the
vessel stuck fast. Immediately after
peeing her strike the lighthouse keep
er gave the alarm, asking that tugs
be dispatched from this city, and a
detachment of thirty soldiers from
the Presidio were sent to render any
When they reached the parapet
the vessel was lying broadside to the
shore, with her bow well up and all
sails set. A stiff southwest gale was
blowing, the surf was running high,
and the ship was pounding heavily
on the rocks. For awhile it seemed
that she must bo beaten to pieces.
About half-past ten o'clock the Sea
J Aon reached the scene, followed soon
afterward bv the Monarch, Rescue
and Water' Witch. Aided by the
tide, they succeeded in getting her off
three hours later, and as she cleared
the reef she settled down deep in tho
water, and appeared as if she was
sinking. Whilo en route to the city
she narrowly escaped going on Al
catraz Island, but she was finally
beached in Mission bay, with fifteen
feet of water in the hold. She lies
at present between Mission rock and
The Much is a wooden ship of 2,092
tons burden. She is owned by Carle
ton, Norwood & Co., of Camden,
Maine, and is worth about $100,000.
Tho cargo consists of 2,626 tons of
coal and 504 tons of steel rails, and is
not damaged to any considerable ex
tent. Captain Harkneas, who com
mands her, has employed T. P. H.
Whitelaw to pump her out so that
she can be discharged and repaired.
The cause of the accident is attrib
uted by the captain to a misinter
pretation of his orders by tho man at
the helm. The Macy was spoken off
Farallone Islands Saturday by the
pilot boat Lady Mine, but the cap
tain refused to have his ship taken in,
saying ho was perfectly familiar with
tho entrance and bar. It is thought
that if the accident had occurred at
high tide, nothing could have saved
the vessel from total destruction. S.

Ears and Scalp Covered with Ede
matous Scabs and Sores
Cured by Cuticura.
MY little son. aged eight years, has been
afflicted with E-zpia of tho scalp, and
at times a great portion of the body, ever
st'ieo he was two years old. It be:an in hts
ears, and extended to his scalp, which be
eame covered with scabs autl sores, and
from v, hlch a stic y fluid poured out, caus
ing intense Itching aud distress, and leavine
his hair marted and lifeless. Underneath
these scaus the skin was raw, like a piece of
beefctea. Gradually the hair came out and
wasdestroved.untilDuta small patch was
left at the back of the head. My friends
in Feabody know how my little boy has suf
fered. At night he would scratch his head
until his pillow was covered with blood. I
used to tie his hands behind him, and in
many ways tried to prevent his scratching ;
but it was no use. he would scratch. I took
him to the hospital and to the best physi
cians in Peabody without success. About
this time, some frleuds, who had been cured
by the Ccticcra Remedies, prevailed up
on me to try them. I began to use them on
the loth of January last. In seven months
evcrj-particle ot the disease was removed.
Not a spot of a scab remains on his scalp to
tell the story of his suffering. His hair has
returned, and is thick and strong, and his
scalp as sweet and clean as any child's in
the world, I cannot say enough to express
my gratitude for this w onderf ul euro by the
Cuticura Kfmedies. and wish all similar
ly afflicted to know that my statement is
true and without exaggeration.
