There is but Hllc hostelry, that
presided over by the genial Jones,
and the bunklioumi of the hale,
hearty and hardy miners. The
stage usually jjets there at early

surroundings, and for the moment
he is completely carried away by
the vociferous yelling of the littu-(lrc'1-aud-oue
hotel runners who
greet him with their blandishments

vantages ot every hotel the boys
ever heard of is hurled at the new

so confuting and bewildering him
that indecision takes a complete

A parly of four wandering min

name of the Cissie Kelton Company
came to town last Friday morning,
t.ostid up their flaring bills, tooled
their horns up and down the wide

flourishing butg, and gave a one

atMuiiin's Hall to a full house.
Smi- s.iy the exhibition pleased
them, while others, who have

Somebody shouted "Santa Claus

appioaching something that for a
moment looked like a dromedary on
wheels. It proved to be an ancient
Columbia bicycle piled high and
strapped nbout with the effects and
trappings of an equally ancient
mariner. The outfit had come
through from Crescent City and
was headed for Portland. Crowds
gathered to look the old-time
bicycle over, while the owner laid
in a fresh stock of crackers and
cheese. It was indeed a curiosity
and was so dilapidated that one
instinctively thought of the once
"wonderful one-horse .sliay," that
was owned by the deacon gray and

over by Rev. V. J.

Gtahuin, Rev. C. II. .Pcrccll and
Kcv. Mr. Green. These several
gentlemen have labored long and
earnestly to bring within the fold
of Christ the weary wanderer iu the
paths of Bin. Though not rcaliz
ing all they hoped to accomplish in
this particular field, they were the
instruments through which some
twenty repentant ones came for

humble supplication the soothing
balm of Halvation. Among this
number several found the solace

far enough on the road to resolve

and the fdiinning heritage fitted
up for the emancipated soul. The
gathering has been a success
financially, the Cottage Groveiles

funds enough to defray all ex

KIU'T 1118 WORD.
It is a well known axiom that
fishermen arc proverbial prevari
cators, but it is our pleasure to re
cord one instance that redounds to
the great credit and manifest de
votion to -truth of our worthy fel
low townsman John .Sherwood. lie
and several boon companions spent
last week in the Bohemia district
scouring the woods for game and
whipping the streams for trout.
Now hunters, as a rule, make
promises with a proviso, but the
"lone fisherman" always knows his
catch will be abundant and makes
his promises ofl hand in advance-
never or seldom ever to be kept.
To know Mr. Sherwood is to ap
preciate the fact that he is the em
bodiment and real personification of
truth, therefore one can easily im
agine the savory deliciousness of
the feast of speckled beauties he
did not bring us. John, they
tasted fine and hit the right spot,
and you have our heartfelt thanks
In Harrisbu'rg, Linn county,
Oregon, July 30, 1900, Mrs. K.

di'nrL'd herself to a large circle of
friends and neighbors who deeply
regret her taking oh", and sincerely
sympathize with the bereaved
ones of the home circle. She was
the mother of seven children, who,
with her husband, survive her.

while driving- to Drain last Friday
morning met with a serious acci
dent. Some miles on the road from
here repairs were being made to a
bridge and it was in an impassable
shape. Temporarilly a road had
been slashed out through the
brush around the obstruction, and
in going over this cutout the
wagon upset, throwing Mr. Mc
Gee out with such force that for
quite a while he was unconscious
and it was feared that he was
mortally hurt. The top of his rig
was badly wrecked. He was sub
sequently taken to his home in Sa

is well on the road to recovery.
