Hand, Oregon, Dec. 15. Upon
examining into the matter of qtmli
Vntions far holding office in the
pfopoMHl incortKiration of Ileud, I
.itu couvlucetl that I, holding. a
hoiucatead outside the propohed
town, could not properly serve as
an officer of the new city, and I
tlNM'.-fore withdraw my name from
the Hat of candidate, for alderman
White doing thi I do not overlook
;h- fart that it would be an honor
10 00 upv the position for which I
b-ive been named and I thank the
people who have urged me fortius
office for their confidence in me.

Thieves arc now stealing window
cusiups -where they arc prepared
lor putting into new buildings. In
the Mtit week n window casing was
tarried away from the Debing cc
Whitsctt saloon building and one
from the Kllis dwelling, the latter
U-ing taken in the middle of the
day while the cnriKMitcrs were
: way at dinner. In each case the
thieves left the building.
Wortl comas from Richard King,
who went to Portland n short time
ago to have cataract removed from
his eyes, that the operation has been
entirely successful and the old man
uu see again. He is yet to have
glasses fitted and will be home in
the course of two or three weeks
ready for work. On account of Mr.
King's age, nearly 70 years, there
was some doubt as to the out come
of tins operation and everybody
will rejoice with him nt the return
of his eyesight.

M. J. nnd I?. W. Roberts and
Klmer J. Merrill made a trip up the
Deschutes to the Klamulh county
border this week, to hunt and look
over the country and examine

bringing 11 number of ducks and
two huge swans. One of these,
birds measured 5 feet from beak to
tnil and the stretch of wings was
10 feet. Its weight was 30 pounds,
Itsbenk alone was 6 inches long.
It was in fine condition nnd wore
