A party of Snake Indians under

to our horses and managed to get
out of their reach. I hardly think
they were in earnest or they would
have managed to annoy us more
than they did. I told the anecdote
later on to some frienes, saying that
our party of twenty-six made a large
band of Indians run, but we worked
in the lead. We finally reached Dr.
Whitman's without any further ad
ventures. We stopped there and
rested a while and then came on

from many of the organizations

this also means frooSt. Paul and

These tickets are good by way of
Portland all the way round to Ash

also to Astoria; and to all points
east of Umatilla theraie is $22.50.
Holders of these tickets can get a

The rate from St, Louis is $30, or

available to thirty oiillions ol peo

The different commercial bodies
in this State that are sending out
literature, have adopted the very
sensible plan of giving the rate to
their towns. For instance Pendle'

Ashland can make just as effective
an advertisement by making it $25,

Dies Alone in Ilia Cabin.
Forest Grove, Or., Jan. 28.
Frank Brown, an old man living
alone in a cabin on Gale's Peak, sev
eral miles northwest of here, died
this morning. Some hunters who
were out that way a few days ago
found him in his cabin, almost dead
from rheumatism. They gave such
relief as they could aud a man was
sent out to look after him, but it
was too late to save his life. He
worked about town here several
years ago, but very little is known
of him. He is thought to have rel

communication with them.

General Funston has recommend
ed that the pay of officers and men

be raised, and in this connection
has made a statement which is some
what startling. He says that the
common hod carrier is better paid
than the soldier in the ranks of the
United States army, and he expres
ses the fear that the soldiers will
leave their duties and follow other
vocations if they are not afforded
better compensation for their servi
ces to the country.
