Last Sunday nt the Cottage
Grove Hotel quite n gold excite
tuuiil pievnlled Tor it little while.
John Holland, the genial host, luul
bought u lot of chickens which
were being dressed for the Sunday
dinner, whtMi it wiim discovered
that ach of then) luul u number of
small nuggets in their craws Unit
greatly rcsembled.vwnsh jtohl. some
twenty of these little bright nug
gets being lound wliieh. if they
were gold, would average about a
dollar eneh. Several miners were
stopping ul the hole! and all on
viewiui; the nuggets declared them
to he gold and many and earnest
were the inquiries as to where the
chickens were raised. For a time
there threatened to he a stampede
to the new gold fields, when one of
the more thoughtful ones suggested
an acid test, which was soon made,
and the unlets ptoved to he cop
per. The most likely theory of
how the chickens came to have
them is that an old copper bottom
to a boiler hml been melted up in
burning rubbish on the ranch
where the chickens were raised and
that they subsequently picked up
the little ;iuggcts ftom the ashes.

On Wednesday morning part of
the committee which was icceiitly
appointed by the chairman of the
mass meeting that was held for the
purpose 01 securing the riht of
way for the proposed railroad to
llnhemia, accompanied the rail
road's representative, W. 1
Morphy, in an inspection ol the
survey up Row tjjer. Those who
went were U. M. Veatch. Frank
Phillips, Charles Ilurkholder and
Darwin Jliisiow. They desire to
view the course of the route and
determine for themselves in what
way and how far the road might or
might not damage any of the
property passed over and note the
many advantages to be derived by
those whose holdings will be so
largely enhanced. This inspection
will put them in possession of in
formation which will be imparted to
the committee of the whole on theii
return, and the lull committee will
then le in position to act know
ingly in the future endeavor of se
curing the right of way,

Dr. Oglesby, president of the
Golden -Slipper Company, was in
town this week. His information
from this splendid group of mines
is indeed most flattering. In the

been encountered Specimens were
sent to I'attl Hratttnel, the assaycr
of Portland, and returns were re

The following is the gist of the
school law which applies to voting
at the special school meeting to be I
held in Cottage Grove on the 18th
at a o'clock p. in,, to-wit:
Section .15. "Any citien or this
state, male or female, who is 21
years of age and has resided in the
district 30 days immediately pre
ceediug the meeting or election,
and has property in the district, as
shown by the last county assess
ment by the shetiff on which he or
she is liable, or mtbjcct to pay a
tax, shall be entitled to vote at any
school meeting or election in said
district." Then follows an expla
nation of what constitutes property
which is to the effect that if "he or
she Ins stock, shares or ownership
in any corporation firm or copart
nership, which has properly in the
district, as shown by them by the
last county assessment, upon which
said firm or corporation pays a tax
or is liable therefor whether the
same has been assessed or not, they
are legal voters."
The writer is informed by the
district board thai there is state
and county school monies drawn by
this district to carry on but little
over five month's school. It appears
to be imperative for the existence
of a good school here to levy a
small tax upon the property owners.
Cottaec Grove has the name of
maintaining a good public school
and her present standard in this re
gard should not in our estimation
be lowered. No kind of public in
stitutions of this kind can be run
without finances. The rising gen
eration of this school district will
be the living monuments to mark
the progress of their predecessots.
There is nothing lost by spending
money to educate the child; but a
great deal has been lost for the
luck of a good education The
American school of today is the
bulwark of American liberty.
