i It has often been stated that the rise
i In the price of wheat does not affect
Clatsop county, but It does, neverthe
less. For instance, the turkeys receiv
ed this year are much poorer than those
of last season. A year ago wheat was
down and market turkeys were fat but
this year, with wheat up to 75 and TO
cents, It does not pay to feed It to tur
keys. The best turkeys now obtaina
ble are those raised on small farms.
A great deal of Interest Is being taken
by local sporting men In the Fitzslm-
mons-Sharkey fight, which takes place
In San Francisco December 2. Many
are of the opinion that the Australian
will take Sharkey's head off in a min
ute, but there are many who think the
sailor will successfully withstand Fltz
slmmons' terrific blows. The fight will
be one of the best ever seen on the
Section 12 of Ordinance No. 13S4, page
179, of the city charter, reads as fol

booms and whiskers and bumpkins,
and the lower and topsail yards be brac

In the offing for for several days, It
may be expected that they are waiting

The Rev. Mr. Dunlap, pastor of the
Methodist church of Warrenton, had
rather an unpleasant experience Mon
day. With several friends he had gone
to West lake to shoot ducks. No birds
flew that way and the party, excepting
Mr. Dunlap, . determined to visit the
adjoining lake. The pastor procured a

came along. Raising his gun, he (I red
and several birds fell. The recoil of the
gun overturned the canoe, and the rev
erend gentleman was thrown Into (he
Icy waters of the lake. Not wishing to
lose his gun, which is a valuable one.
he clung to the overturned canoe and
awaited the return of his companions.
For almost an hour he remained In
this position and was well nigh ex
hausted when the-other hunters came
In sight. He was rescued from his
perilous position, benumbed with cold,
and taken to an adjoining house.
The paper wedding" celebration of
Mr. and Mrs. William Ttmson Monday
evening was a very pleasant altilr.
"Hearts" were the favors and the game
of the evening. Many beautiful paper
presents were received. Mr. Horace
Thing carried off the first gentlemen's
prise and Mrs. Gosslln the first ladles'
prise. Miss Bessie Arndt captured the
ladies' "booby" prise and Prof. Thorn
ton the gentlemen's lowest prise. At
the conclusion of the card games music,
singing and dancing were indulged In,
after which refreshments were served.
Among thoee present were: Judge and
Mrs. Lighter, Judge and Mrs. Taylor,

A great deal of interest has been man
ifested in intercollegiate football of late
and a match game will be played on
Thanksgiving day. The first and sec
ond elevens of the Astoria Football
Club will meet, the men lining up as
follows: First eleven Oeorge Hawes,
center; B. Marion, left end; Will Young,
right end; Harry Young, left tackle;
Jones, right tackle; Cotter, left guard:
Hay ward, right guard; Geo. Smith, half
back; D. Allen, right half back; Nace
Grant, full back; J. Young, quarter
back. Second eleven J. Johnson, cen
ter rush; D. McLean, right guard; W.
Curtis, right tackle; Geo. Ohler. right
end, Taylor, left guard; C. Brown, (cap
tain) left tackle; Holt, left end; J. Mc
Cue, quarterback; A. Smith, left half
back; W. Crosby, right halfback; J.
Bufflngton. fullback; substitutes. C. So
vey, Gus Woods. H. Cassell. The first
eleven is a much heavier team than
the second, but those who know say
the latter will put up a very good
game. Ohler and Holt are playing well
for beginners, as is also Dan Allen, who
though, has had considerable experi
ence. It has not yet been decided where
the game will be played.
The street committee is taking steps
to repair the damage on Grand avenue
between 9th and 10th streets. Tons of
earth cover the block, making the street
impassable, and people residing In that
vicinity are forced to cut across blocks
to reach their homes. Yesterday morn
ing 350 feet of sluice boxes were con
structed and the hydrants and Are hose
will be used to wash the dirt down Into
the hole near the Tlghe hotel. It Is
doubtful whether this will be success
ful, as the hill gives way as soon as
any dirt Is removed. The buildings on
the south side of Grand aevnue
east of 9th street are In great danger of
being carried away and several houses
are sliding. Chairman Parker, of the
street committee, says he does not
know how much earth can be removed,
but that a beginning will be made. The
avenue has already cost the city sever
al thousands of dollars and now It ap
pears that a full block will have to be
rebuilt. Many are of the opinion that
the council should have all streets run
ning east and west graded down to a
level. As It is Franklin avenue, for
instance, runs up hill and down hill and
has been sliding In several places.

the Red Men's masquerade bail on
