It is easier to develop a boom than

A story of horrible dt-pravity comes

T. A man named Lewis left his sick
wife and seven little children at a
farm house lo bring a doctor. He
went to Olympia and there got drunk
and did not return until sent for fonr
days later, when the dead and decom
posing body of his wife was found by
the ueighbors. The children were iu
a famished condition when found,
nothing to eat having been left in the
house. Two of them are not expected
On Wednesday's overland train,
says the Telegram, arrived a Mrs.
Jane O'Mears with three children,
from Keokuk, Iowa. She came here
on a straugo mission, that is in search
of a husband who left her three
months ago, bound for Astoria, as he
claimed. Mrs. O'Mears stated that
O'Mears is the fourth husband that
left her never to return, in the past
seven years; and as she thiuks more
of the latter than the other three she
concluded to follow him. Mrs.
O'Mears looks about 45 years of age
and doesn't appear as if she had spir
it enough to tire out so many hus
bands. Over at the Seaside the other day
a lady rubbed phosphorus on her
bunion, 'presumably, to ease the
pain, and then retired to her downy
couch. Along in the night her hus
band, who was a drinking man, by
the way, thought he saw a fiery eye
looking at him. He imagined that
he saw a frightful winged monster
with one blazing eye, staring at him;
and after standing it as long as he
could.Sho decided to kill it. Slowly
he reached under the bed till he
found his bootjack, and after spitting
on his hands, he whaled away. Tho
nest moment his poor wife gave a
yell that nearly lifted him out of bed,
but when he found out th'o true state
of affairs he was immensely relieved,
even though his wife has been obliged
to walk on crutches ever since.

Around the Point.
Therc is a good road from Trull iu
ger's mill skirting the shore and
around Smith's Point, and on these
pleasant days it is a favorite drive.
With a little straightening of the
crooks and a little opening toward
tho bluff it will make an excellont
road, and oue that affords a much
needed outlet Col. Taylor contem
plates some improvements in this
liuo which will be of material benefit
In tho course of an hour's drive nine
buggies and wngous were counted on
the road, and the Clatsop ferry
seemed to be doing a good business
in the way of transfer, affording
means of getting to and from the city
that are embraced by many.
The Chinese gardens on the south
side of Smith's Point are a good il
lustration of what patient industry
can do. These indefatigable folks
have taken a fertile but unpromising
looking tract, and have dammed res
ervoirs, dug ditches, and so thor
oughly cultivated the soil that they
raise 'most luxuriant crops of all
kinds of garden vegetables. They
have cleared about S2.000 off one lit
