Mr. Elza Dilworth, of Vermont,
III., In visiting with his cousin, Mrs.
Kuth A. Ulalr. Mr. D. spent 'some
time in the Palouse country which he
tliiuks he will like well enough when
it is finished. Now there Is too much
up and down.
Prof. Washburn was lost to the
University of Oregon because the
University of Wisconsin had more
nvjiiey to pay a good man than the
Eugene school can command, but It
hart more money than I'aciflo Univer
sity at Forest Grove. For that reason
- Prof. Sweetzer who was getting only
$1000.00 has gone to Eugene. The
salary at the now place Is not
named, but It Is supposed to be about
I1800.C0. Sweetzer la well up la bis
work, fully equal to Washburn, If
not better, and his place at Forest
Orove will be filled only after much
discriminating care. The trustees
however say that they have many
good men from whom to make
Benson's machine shop Is rjished
these -days. .The job In the lathes
this week are the rollers from the
Hillsboro Flouring Mills. Mr. Milne
selects this quiet month to have all
the maudrells of his rolls turned to a
perfect surface and rebabbltted. As
soon as the work Is done, Mr. Ben
son will go to work on Senator E.
W. Haines' big boiler, which was
unloaded from a flat car last Monday.
The boiler la IS feet long and 60
Inches in diameter. There are 80
8-inch flues In It. Mr. Benson's
work is to remove the old flues and
put in new ones. This boiler, when
overhauled, Is to be Installed at Mr.
Haines' electric generating plant on
Uales Creek. The boiler will gene
rate steam for a 100 horse power
A peculiarly serious accident befell
Mrs. Geo. Baker, of Mlddleton,
whllo returning from charrh last
Saturday evening. The horse she
wits riding was a trusty animal and
iu crossing a deep canon her husband
with the lantern had taken the trail
and would meet her on the other
si In. In the darkness the horse was
following loo close the edge of the
roud, but the rider was not aware of
danger until she felt the horse
scrambling to n galu his foothold.
The next instaut they were falling
down an almost perpendicular em
bankment. It was a very undesir
able place for such an accident as
they fell over logs and through brush
for a distauce of 80 feet. At the
bottom of the flrstdejtcetitMrs. Baker
gained hold of a root whils the horse
rolled many feet farther. Neighbors
coming just behind sainted In getting
the injured lady home, while the
horso was taken out the uext morn
ing almoet unhurt. Luckily Mrs,
linker received no serious injuries,
but prefers not to have another such
At 7:30 o'clock Monday morning
last a fire alarm was sounded and
the department started to an angry
looking volume of smoke out beyond
Recreation Park.' A block or two
on the way showed that It was Mr.
Linn's fine barn on the T. D. Hum
phrey's tract, at Seventh and Oak
tre ti. From the city hall, the run
wss a half mile. There Is no hy
drant as far out as that corner, so no
water could be turned on the fire,
but it would have been of little use,
sinco the entire Interior of tho build
ing was burning when discovered.
The loss Is total. Insurance 1800.
The barn was a good one, perhsps
the best In the city, and cost, when
new, between fftOO and 1000, How
did It get afire? That is a question
past Ending out, The structure was
not In use, not even for a storage
jJaco, except for Mr. Linn's buggy.
That ws lost. The owner had not
been In the barn for a week and
he really knows nothing of the In
terior for the few days prior to the
burning. There was some straw and
bean hulls In the driveway and some
old straw in tho loft. In the north
west corner of the barn the floor had
been removed a year or two ago and
a potato pit made. Mr. Linn thinks
it possible that tramps may have
found out the barn and camped
there, building a fire In this pit. A
neighbor to the north of the place
.moiled burninc feathers late Sun
day night, so it Is possible that the
w.rr Willie" was roasting cnica
ens for supper. HU Are may -
got lieyond his cuntr, or ne may
have wilfully set the torch.
It was reported at the annual
meetlngof the Congregational church
at Forest Grove, by the treasurer,
that there Is lu the church building
fund 12 133. It will bo remembered
that the place of worship was burned
hut summer, The greater part of
this money was realized from the
Insurance company. It Is learned
that the church is planning to build
a new structure which will cost
about $7000. Severn! plans are in
hand, two of which are liked very
much. Ono of these, in outward ap
pearance, resembles the old build
ing, which was dear to so many
members, and perhaps ' sentiment
somewhat Inclines them to this par
ticular plan. But the church will
not build till a fee simple title is ob
tained to the lot where the old house
stood. The deed conveying title was
executed by Kev, Cunning Eells and
wife and stipulates that It belongs to
the church while it occupies It, but
when used for other purposes, then
the title reverts to the heirs of Eells.
Both Eells and his wife are dead.
Their two sons, Edwin and Myron
ate alive, but by the terms of their
father's will they in no event could
take the Forest Grove property. By
the will they received their share of
their father's estate In a named sum
of money. All other property of
whatever amount or class was left to
Whitman College, Walla Walla,
accordingly the quit claim deed to
the Forest Greve church must come
from Whitman College. Will the
college execute the conveyance? It
la understood that it will not unless
the Eells brothers advise It. Up to
this time they have not advised. Bo
there it la. It was suggested that
In as much as the lot h 400 feet long
and 200 feet wide, when a perfect
title Is secured, the northeast corner,
100 feet square, might be kept for a
building lot and the remainder sold
for enough to pay for the new house.
Perhaps, was the reply, that would
be a judicious thing for the church to
do, but not for the city. The block
200 feet wide just across the street
from the presont business block
makes practically an avenue 820 feet
wide by 620 long. The church,
though, realizes the burden of a land
owner when it pays for building and
maintaining 1200 feet of sidewalk
and Its share of that length of street.
During the past ten years that ex
pense has averaged $00 per year.
Fonr more "transient Immigrants"
were found by Marshal Atkinson on
Friday last and taken before Record
er Bagley. They gave the names j
Geo. Wilson, Wm. Jrwin, Wm. East
man and Charles Kent. The first,
Goo. Wilson, plead guilty. The
others declared afterward that they
might as well have done so since
"the court was prejudiced." Des
mond, who had been taken up the
day before, and Wilson were given a
half hour to leave town. They went.
The other six being ablo fellows,
were put to work on the streets.
They laid all the lu miter on the
streets that was In stock, took the
old plank and patched where it was
possible and cleaned the mud off
Main street from Third to Second
and off Second to Washington. But
the city has made nothing. The ex
pense of boarding the posse will
amount to as much as the work they
have done and would have cost If
perfoimed by free lalor. If, how
ever, the example will keep tramps
away, the money will bn well spent,

The gospel meetings that have
been held in the Washington Street
M. E. church for the past six weeks
are yet iu progress. The interest In
religion matters that has been
aroused has been marked, and the
accessions to the church toward the
close of the campaigu will without a
doubt be many.
Rev. Dick, formerly pastor ef the
Congregational church here, but now
at Hubbard, in Marlon county, has
during the winter coudncted a series
of Gospel meetings at a neighbor
hood center near his town where
there have, been thirty conversions.
Twenty-five of these have associated
themselves together . in a church or
ganization to be knowu and hailed

The weather for the past week has
been stormy and much water has
fallen, though the rains have not
been as heavy as they were earlier
in the winter, or as heavy bs they
have been within the week at Jack
son and Josephine counties. Rogue
River this week has been a raging
flood, higher than at any time for
twelve years. Many bridges In that
part ot the Htate have been washed
away, Even the steel railroad bridge
spanning Rogue River was threaten

L. W. House Is making a desirable
clothes rack that unites all the good
points' that properly belong to an
article of that class, and some that
are peculiar, The rack Is large or
small, as the housewife desires to
use It, and when not In use can be
folded and set away In very small
space. When In use It is impossible
to tip it over, yet it is so constructed
that linen is' hung in open folds.
Tho rack is made entirely of wood,
baring the screws with which it is
put together, hence there is no metal
to rust and stain fabrics. The price
of the ruck is within the reach of ail,
being only 11.50.
Mr. E. P. Hughes, who has lived
in Hillsboro for the past six years,
has entered into co-partnership with
a former neighbor and friend named
Scott, under the firm name of Hughes
A Scott, for the purpose of engaging
in a general merchandise business at
Jefferson, Marlon county. The new
firm purchased an established busi
ness and will at once enter the whirl
of trade. Mr. Hughes went lost
Monday morning, and will not again
be iu Hillribpro except as a visiter.
Jefferson is a country town, almost
as large as Hillsboro, and Is at the
head of steamboat navigation on the
Santiaro River. We of Hillsboro re
gret to lose Mr. Hughes. We have
found him prompt, courteous and
obliging. He is scrupulously honest
and the same for truth, and he de
Rpises subterfuges of whatever nature.
Jefferson Is to be congratulated on
the acquisition of so valuable a citi
zen. Mrs. Hughes, with the chil

Some of the big weeklies of Chica
go, New York and St. Louis have a
column or two set apart for the cor
respondence of rural readers. Aunt
Bailie and Uncle Reuben have a ve
hicle for airing their thoughts. Some
mouths ago an unscrupulous trades
man saw an opportunity for free ad
vertising, and in a scrawling hand
wtoto extolling the good qualities of
"Red Albumen." It was a medi
cine or food for chickens and would
make anything that wore feathers
lay eggs, even the roosters would go
on the nest. Several of the big
weeklies were worked, and the en
quiries for "Red Albumen" were
numerous. Our local drug stores
were unable to fill the orders, but
suggested fake to the customer and
fake It is. No chemical yet sent out
from the laboratory will change the
starches and. sugnrs to albumen, and
there is no drug that can be given to
fowls In sufficient quantities to make
the necessary albumen found In the
whites of eggs. The red albumen
that was pretended to do so much Is
nothing more than dried blond, and
lu very small quantities at that.
Don't enquire for or buy "Red Albumen."
William Uassel, of Forest Grove, a
brother of Mrs. Atwell, was found
dead on Wednesday lost In a field
belonging to Postmaster Atwell's
prane farm on Gales Creek. Tho uo
fortunate man had lain there about
two days before the corpse was dis
covered. Russel was slaying at the
farm caring for the premises. About
9 o'clikk MoaiUy forenoon he left
Tuppets, a neighbor, to go home,
Ha took a near cut across the fields
Instead of around the road. In one
field the ground was very soft aud
walking was laborious. Ktfesel had
been ailing for a fow days so that be
appears to hive tired out. When
part way through the thin, slushy
Baud he stumbled and fell forward
so that his fuce struck In the mud.
He did not have strength'to get out,
and there suffocated. The deceased
was about 80 years of age, had served
two years In the army, and at an
other time one year, The hard cam
paigning of those years miy have
had something to do with the health
of the past winter.
Mrs. R. B. Goodln and daughters
visited friends lu Hillsboro yester
day. They went home to Salem on
the evening train, after a visit of two
weeks with friends in the county,
By the way, it is brought to mind
that the Salem Sentinel in its zeal to
promote its peculiar line of political
manipulation made a savage attack
on Mr. Goodln, charging that he
had been away from his work for
two weeks. Mr. Goodin did attend
the family reunion held week before
last at his father's, when the golden
wedding of the old folka rj cele
brated. He was away five days, no
more. But the management al
lows Its employes a vacation of ton
days. It was Mrs. R. B. Goodin
that was visiting two weeks and the
Sentinel simply made a blunder. It
Is understood that this Is not the
first time the Sentinel has attacked a
womau and thought it was a man.
Its eyes are becoming too much im
paired for guard duty, and it should
turn over Its post to another.
