Tint Mayor Saw It.
There lire few men in Liitic
county today wlio nrc nny better
known tlnui ex-Senator Jlol Vcntcli
for veracity nnd ordinary truthful
ness, and it in even said tlmt lie
could not dreniti of n falsehood tin
less under a heavy stress of weather
He rales ho IiIkIi mi the line of
truth idling that lie has been
elevated to the proud dignity of
Mayor of this nourishing burg, and
when he vouches for anything that
lias happened bin Htatemeiit is re
ccived as gospel truth. Last Iri
day be bad occasion o tnks a short
Htroll in the suburbs of town and,
as usual, something happened and
lie (luiii i nave a nun. lie was
roaming over the Oowdy farm
when to bis amazement nut from a
clump of trees n little way off canie
hounding toward him the largest
buck deer he ever saw. In his tin
protected condition for the moment
be was nonplussed and the buck
came charging on, but Hob is ever
resourceful, and be quickly doffed
bis broad sombrero and shied it at
the ferocious deer just m time to
avert what might have been. The
deer wped on and as .soon as the
frightened Mayor got bis second
wind be hied himself to town and
related the thrilling event. Jivery
Ixxly took stock in the story until
it butted up against Hill l.nudcw,
not a bad story teller hiinsell, and
Hill, well Mayor Veatch and Hill
Lawless are not just now enjoying
one anutlier's society. A .sort of
coolness, as it were, between old
To Tint Uof Ifnu.is.
This week inaugurates the be
ginning of the hop harvesting and
many of our people have taken the
opportunity of enjoying an outing
for a few weeks and at the same
time picking up a little ready
money by picking the golden hops.
The recent rain has cleared the at
mosphere and cleaned the vines of
dust, and if the weather now holds
good a most enjoyable time will be
bad while gatbeiing the harvest in
the hoo'ik-lds.- This fa one of the
delights of the year that many look
,-forward to and as well 10 ma King n
neat little sum lor extras. 10
sonic families it gives an oppor
tunity to provide the necessities for
winter, and in that it is indeed a
great boon. Aside, from some
little inconveniences the bop pick
ing season is one of the happiest
times of the year.
Oi't' For Hoston
Isaac C. Thompson, who has this
summer interested himself in sev
eral enterprises in this section has
gone home for the winter to IIol
brook, Mass. Mr. Thompson has
had a good deal of prospecting done
for coal in the bills west of town,
and recently he acquired an interest
with Messrs. Finn and Lloyd in
the Stocks. Harlow & Brush prop
erty in Hohemia. Mr. Thompson
is well satisfied with his investments
here and will tell his friends and
neighbors in the east of the future
possibilities that here abound. He
is a most pleasant gentleman, and
lias done good work while here for
the building up of this section. If
nil goes well with him be will be
back again about the ist of next
May. The Nugget wishes him a
safe voyage to bis old home.
The people who travel up and
down Main street by themselves or
in bunches will in the future marvel
at the remarkably attractive and
artistic Higupost that ornaments the
sidewalk in front of the up-to-date
jewelry store of Otto Nelson. Those
finished artists, Jenkins, & Lawson,
are directly responsible for the
catchy attraction, but the polished
gentleman who winds the main
springs in that jewelery emporium
is at all time ready and willing to
tell you bow it happened.
G. A. R. Social Dinnuk.
The members of Ord Post, G. A.
R., will give a social dinner at their
headquarters on the fourth Satur
day in September. Commander
Lincoln extends to all old soldiers
of all wars a most cordial invita
tion to be present and help to en
joy the good tijiiifc'9.
Nitw Two Story Mkick.
Next Monday will witness the
initial Mtpn in the building up of n
substantial Htiucture on the corner
of Main nnd 1'oiirth streets. That
prominent and central corner will
in the f n lu re be ornamented with a
two-story brick edifice. The struc
ture to goup will be 50x100; the
foundation to be stone and the
structuic to be brick. The lot whs
lately puichimcd by Frank Wheeler
but the building that goes up will
be fostered by Wheeler and Phillip
The intention is to push it right
through to completion. C. II. Wal
lace has the contract for the work
He has now n kiln ot 100,000
brick and will put a big force of
men at wink immediately to make
all the brick that the sun will dry
before the rain Hets in. This new
building will require over 140,000
brick atid when finished will be
one of the finest ornaments on Main
Houoiit a Fa km.
Last Saturday saw the transfer
ofoncol the finest farms in this
section of the valley. The old Ma
jor UiriHiium place, lour nines
northeast of CottaKO drove, con
sisting of 756 acre?, was bought by
I. I. Jones for S7,ooo stmt cash.
Mr. Jones intends going exten
sively into the dairy and creamery
business and expects to keep when
well under .way at least 150 cowx
This enterprise will be of great
benefit to the people of Cottage
Grove in having almost at their
very doors an ample supply of
good butter at all seasons of the
year, a thing that has been badly
needed in the past.

Kelly mill at bngmaw, uati n
rious accident happen him the
other day He was playing with
other l6ys on a whirling plank

stitches dressed the wound and the
little fellow is getting on all right,

J. M. Hidwell met with a very
painful accident while working 011

the car as it was thrown in from
the track piles, and just as be was
stooping to pick up a stick another
was hurled from the outside and
caught his hand between the two,
smashing the tbitd finger of the
left band badly. Dr. Job dressed
the wound and it won't be long
before Mr. Hidwell will be able to
report for duty.
