Last Thursday nlfjht being tlic
regular meeting night of the K. O.
T. M., the ladles of the Beehive,
recently organized In this city, nnd
their friends, decided to give them
n little surprise niul accordingly
nsscmblcd at ilie Commercial House
with heavily laden baskets, and at
about 9 o'clock marched to the
hall. On reaching the hall they
learned that the Knights had not
finished their work, so a few
minutes of waiting were indulged
in. When the doors were thrown
open very much to the surprise of
the gentlemen, of crowd of some
thing like 40 ladies filed in with
loads of good things. When the
Knights recovered a littlo they
requested the crowd to he seated
and Knight Jenkins called order
nnd made a few remarks expressing
their complete surprise nnd regrets
nl keeping them wailing so long.
Songs and speeches were listened
to with interest for some time, then
it was announced thai supper was
the next thing on the program, so
accordingly the long tabic was
spread, and such a spread, the
table was loaded down with the
hot lunch that ever graced a table,
nnd the crowd did ample justice to
it. After supper the crowd was
favored with a number of selections
on the graphophonc which Mr.
Sherwood had thoughtfully pro
vided. Games were then indulged
in by all until a late hour when all
departed for their homcscxprcssing
themselves ns having spent a very
CAI'TUKItl) TJIH 11UKOI.AR.
Last Friday night Col. W. II.
Iilair at the Hotel Sherwood had a
telephone call from Night Operator
Atkins at the S. 1'. depot asking
him to send Policeman Niitm at
once as he had heard several shots
fired and supposed that burglats
were at work in the store of Long
& Son just across the track from
the depot. Nuiiii was soon found,
nnd hastening to the scene dis
covered a dim light and some one
nt work in the rear of the stqrc near
the safe. In the dim light and
the dense pow.tcr smoke (torn the
hhots heard by Mr. Atkius, it was
difficult to determine "just what the
burglar was doing, hut Nunn lost
no time in covering him with his
r ti 11 and ordered "hands up." Mr.
Ceo. I.ongJ for it was he, then de
manded to' know why he was wt
nlto.vcJ to kill his own rats in his
own store, und especially when he
had his ratship in a box.
IT WAS A MISTAKK.
C. W. Caldwell, of the fair
grounds, in moving to his newly
purchased farm near Cottage Grove,
took two cows with him, and was
arrested near Cottage Grove by
officers thinking the cow he had
answered the descripriou of the one
stolen near Salem. He was released
nfter an examination of the case.
This was the case in which Chief of
Police D. W. Gibson was interested.
The stolen cow belonged to A. V.
Drager, south of this city, and a
description of her had been sent out
by Chief Gibson. When he was
notified by the Cottage Grove au
thorities of the arrest of a man hav
ing such a cow in charge, the Salem
officer went to Cottage Grove, but
quickly discovered that the wrong
man had been seized, and Mr. Cald
well was promptly released. Sa
At a meeting of the City Council
Tuesday night the proposed ordi
nance to prohibit cows running at
large within the city limits was de
feated by a vote of 3 to 2, and now
the town cow is in all her glory 1
appropriating sidewalks to suit her
own inclination, and destroying
well kept lawns aud shrubbery.
Verily the town cow is now "mon
arch of all she surveys."

PROSPECTING FOR GOLD.
Geo. L;ongand J. T. Cardwell
of this place, are doing some pros
pect work about one-half mile east
of town. They have found a large
amount of gold bearing float rock
which assays from 70 cents to $3 50
per ton. The existence of this
ledge has been known for several
years, but heretofore no one has
considered it of enough importance
to justify any amount of outlay in
hunting for the ledge. Now, how
ever Messrs. Long and Cardwell
feel that the prospect is encourag
ing enough to continue work on
the same. A well defined ledge of
paying quartz within one-half mile
of town would certainly be a big
thing for Cottage Groye.
