This ditch is to have a total full of
three and a half feet and will drain all
of central Independence. We are in
formed that numerous lateral drains
will be connected with the main
ditch, tbe property owners generally
sdopting this system of drainage. It
would greatly improve the sanitary
condition of Independence if the en

citizens should see that it Is done.

Aa TJnlockT AccltJeaL-J. C. Rose,
teamster from Monmouth, had the
miarorf une to iret a valuable work horse
drowned in tbe river near the steam
boat landing at this place Wednesday
morning. Mr. Rose came over from
Monmouth with a four horse team for
some freight, and uumtcuing ma
"leaders," tied them by the double
tree to a cable rope fastened to a fir
tree near the river bank. While Mr.
Rose was looking after
the horses became re lees
dentally fell over the bank into the
river. The force of the rail released
the horses from the rope cable and
they floated down the stream, and in
the struggle one of the horses was
drowued. The other was rescued aud
brought to shore about three hundred
yards below tbe boat lauding.
The TlllsmooX Country. The New
Year's issue of the Tilla
mook Headlight is quite a readable
uumbcr, giviug as it does au interest
ing sketch of the varied resources of
Tillamook county. The Tillamook
country has devtloped iuto one of the
fluect lumbering and dairying regions
iu Oregon, if not on the coast. When
but a little boy we visited the Tilla
mook, lu company with a surveying
party, iu the nutumu of 1859, aud the
chang.s that have been made in that
country since then are remarkable.
We found only a primitive settlement,
composed of a few hardy pioneers,
quite destitute of the comforts of civil
ized life, but cheerful, healthy and
hospitable to a fault. Many of these
settlers parched wheat and ground it
in a commou coffee mill to make meal
for bread. We distinctly remember
the oVHirht of Mrs. Harris, v. ho lived
on South Piairie, in gettingsome flour
fmm our nartv to make biscuit. All
kinds of vegetables grew proliiieally in
the rich soil. When a boy we stoutly
maintained that Tillamook could pro
duce the tiuest cabbages, tbe biggest
snuds" and the prettiest gins in an
Oregeu, aud we were about right.
