The newspapers of California are still

loads of its surplus girls to the Western

first, for they'll stand no show when the
widows reach the field. St Paul Globe.

Hugh Strickland's magnificent stal
lion, "Usurper," died Friday at the Hay
creek ranch. The horse had been ailing
for several weeks, and Friday morning
the enormous brute rared up, gave a
mighty groan and expired within a few
minutes. This was a valuable animal,
and horseraisers aay he was the best
horse in the country. It is a great loss
to Hugh, as It is but a short time since
he bought him for $1500. Within the
last seven years Hugh has lost ttnree val
uable stallions, which cost bim $4000 In
the aggregate. -
The bill of Representative Coon rela
tive to the formation of new counties ap
pears to be a worthy one. It requires the
petition of 100 tax payers to be filed with
the county clerk 60 days before a general
election. The sheriff must also certify
that there Is $700,000 worth of property
in the proposed county and that neither
of the counties losing territory will be
left with less than $1,000,000 worth of
property. The question of establishing
a new county must be submitted to the
interested electors at a general election
and receive two-thirds of their suffrages.
A Chicago paper accuses the Union.
Paciffio of cutting passenger rates be
tween Odgon and the Missouri to an ex
tent which will almost certainly result
in an open reduction of 60 percent. The
regular rates on such tickets is $40. The
Union Pacific ia accused of placing large
block's of tickets In brokers' hands at
prices which enable them to sell at from
$18 to $21. One of the scalpers informed
a competing line and a number of the
tickets were obtained at the price named.
An open reduction in rates to at least $20
It is understood that an effort will be
made to have laws passed by the legisla
ture which will reach vandals and wan
tons in a more effectual manner. As the
law is now, a person who maliciously
destroys another's property is fined by
the court, and the fine is turned into the
public treasury, leaving the injured one
to repair the damage done him at his
owp 'expense. A change in ttie law
would inflict a penalty sufficient to pay
for the damage and a balance to go to
the treasury. It it no protection to a inau
who has his property damaged 125 or
more, when the guilty one ie let off with
a fine of $5, which goes to the county.
When Mr. Cleveland appointed Sana-
tor Lamar secretary of the-interior, the
latter had just married a young wife,
who enjoyed herself for a whole week in
the delightful pastime of house-hunting.
At Inst she found just what she wanted
The dwelling seemed to bo pre-eminently
a suitable residence for a cabinet officer
She drove to the senate, of which Mr
Lamar was still a member, to tell her
husband the news of her discovery. His
first question was: "What is the rent,
dear?" Seventy-five hundred a year
The senator lapsed into deep thought,
and the young wife said rather nervous
ly; "Do you think it extravagant?"
"It is not that," returned Lamar, slowly ;
"I was wondering what I should do with
the other $500 of my Balary."
Many a business man cuts down bis
newspaper advertising just at the wrong
time. It is not the return from judicious
advertising which brings success? It is
the cumulative effect. Watch the bus
iness of two firms, one a live presistent
aggressive advertiser, the other, negli
gent. Which becomes the leading mer
chant In a fow years? Buy a space in
your paper, make it interesting and
don't begrudge tho money. Advertising
in a live paper pays. The paper can live
without your advertisement better than
you can live without its effect. Every
line in a newspaper costs something
If it is for an individual it should be
paid for. If the grocer was asked to con
tribute groceries to one abundantly able
to pay for them, he would refuse. The
proprietor of a newspaper must pay for
the free advertising if the beneficiary does
not, and yet is one of the hardest things
to be learned by many that a newspaper
has space in its columns to rent and
must rent to live. Exchange,

Cal Hale Convicted.
The case of the' State of Washington
vs. Cal Hale, in the bank robber case at
Ellensburg, went to the jury Monday
evening at 8 o'clook, after one week's
hard work on both sides. After deliber
ating six hours the jury brought in a
verdict of "guilty, as charged in tno
complaint." He will not likely receive
his sentence until the other boys have
their trials, Klmscy's being in progress
now. Some of Hale's witnesses arrived
home Wednesday, and report that an ef
fort will be made for another trial. The
result is anxiously awaited by friends of
the boya in trouble.
Lone Rock Rumblings.
Died At the home of R. G. Robinson
at Lone Rock on Thursday, Feb. 2d, the
only child of Calvin and Gretchen Rob
inson, aged about four months.
Our school teacher Mr. Stratton went
to Gilliam's gay capital Wednesday to
attend the examination. Charley Ear-
hart also went to the metropolis Tues
Wednesday morning a messenger ar
rived here from lleppuer with a tele
gram from Tom Klmsey at Ellensburg,
to Nat Scott, which read as follows :
'Scott, we want you to testify in our
case. or tiou's saxe, come: you can
get here on time." !
This would be a good market for the
Siwashes to sell deer skins, as something
of that sort is badly needed to patch the

and young. The warmest trip yet is the

the gold pan.
Last Tuesday while chasing cattle,
Geo. Boone's horse stepped into an
extinct badger-hole and immediately
thereafter he capsized, pitching the old
gentleman about 60 yards ahead. He
just happened to light on the hardest
spot of earth in Oregon, and was pretty
badly bruised up in consequence. .
We are creditably informed that one
of our young neighbors is likely to get
"rounded up" shortly. It is pretty well
known that three different sets of wed

have also gone by the board fizzled out,
metaphorically speaking. But the grand
bounce from the old lady will be the
next scene on the program, and the gay

means of a No. 12 brogan. That'll fetch
The news of Cal Hale's conviction is a
greot surprise to all of ns. Our people
are all asking themselves tiie question :
"Can it be possible that Cal is guilty,
when so many witnesses testified to see
ing him in this county on the very day
the robbery wascommitted?" Thegen-
eral impression seems to prevail that
had the Fossil and Arlington papers not
had so much to sav in the matter, the i
boys would have had a better case. It
eometiinea tnrna out very poor judg-j
ment for neweimpers to try a case before
the court does,
Myron O. Clarke was over to the coun
ty seat the rlrot of the week and effected
arrangements to embark in the butcher
ing business in that jlnee. We all re
gret very nint h to lose the Clarke family
from our midst; but we venture the as
sertion that they will not be absent from
here long, judging from the fact that no
one has ever left here yet who did not
":queal" to get back before they were
gone six months. There is a peculiar
magnetism about this place. However,
we all wish Mr. Clarke and family good
luck in the new venture. Cowboy.

Tho annexation of the Sandwich Is
lands to the United States will tie but a
queetion of time. The native population
is entirely unfit for self government, be
sides is rapidly dying out. It will soon
fall to the lot of some nation to establish
a protectorate and none othpr has the
favorable position occupied by the Uni
ted States. While it is true that the
commercial interests of tireat Britain on
the high seas are beyond comparison
greater than ours, the islands are more
contiguous to the United States territory
than that of any other nation. . Ameri
cans have the bulk of the commerce of
the islands, and the Pacific ports on this
coast are their natural trading points.

1 Fault-Find Jng.
An exchange says: Few can discern
the real secret of successful rebuke.
Many are too apt to increase rather than
diminish the errors to which they object.
Misdirected efforts to subdue a child's,
or even an adult's evil tendencies gene
rally serve to inflame them. Pastors,
parents and teachers, the appointed
gardinns of our communities, sometimes
allow their protests against the wrong
to degenerate into a tempersome, peev
ish or melancholy whine. None will
deny there is need for fault-finding.
Discrepancies in conduct require skilful
repression, and immoral traits must be
pruned away if the character of the boy
or man is to mature into the whit flower
of a blameless life. But is there not
a little too much gratuitous fault-finding?
' With some people it becomes a
very hateful habit. Continual reference
to errors induces willful perseverance in
them, and familiarity which incessant
complaint breeds contempt for it. The
safest rule seems to be that only when
all other and gentler resources have
been tried and found useless, should we
venture upon the distinct mention of
