the season so far.
Several freight teams from this aection
left the first of the 'week for The Dalles

blows no good.
We learn from a number of horseraia
ers in this section thata sort of epidemic
is going the rounds, which has killed a
number of horses and scores of others

Horsemen are at a loss to understand
the cause, some thinking that perhaps
it is caused by eating a poisonous weed

were killed, besides many were injured,
and it is thought some fatally. The loss
is estimated from $30,000 to $40,000.

ruined. It was the most terrific storm
ever experienced in that section.
Thero was a time when insurance com

not checked, would soon create havoc,

Condon has decided to not celebrate
this year, and a number of our citizens
expect to spend the Fourth at Fossil,
of the grandest balls here in the evening
that has ever been given in the county;
Our hall being the largeat and best In
the county for dancing, there is no doubt
that a large number will come over from
Fossil on that evening, as the hull at
that place will not be large enough to
accommodate all of the celebration crowd.
Assistant General Superintendent Bax
tor, of the Union Pacific, thinks it will
cost the Union Pacific two million dol
lars to repair the line Is'tween Portland
and UmaKilla. They do not expect to

of fearful loss of property, but strange to
say not a life, so far, has been lost. The

think it will take the Great Northern

fully repair their tracks and the North

The number of officers and men actu
ally killed in battle in all of the Union
armies during the four years of war,
barely exceeds 00,000. The number of
those who died of wounds during the
war is less than 35,0 X). The number
that died of diseases, either resulting
from the hardships and exposure of
warfure, or the incident of natural mor
tality in a great body of men, is about
185,000 for the four years. Adding even
the 24,000 cases of disappearance, con
veniently charged in the records to
death "from unknown causes," the total
of mortality among Union troops during
the war is 1(04,000. Toe cost of the war

Diversified Farming. .
If the farmers iu the Northwest
could or would produce the hams, hud,
bacon, butter and eggs that have been
transported here from other states they
would not feel the decline iu the price of

Money saved is as good as money

venture the suggestion that we here in
the North Pacific must undertake to
supply onr own wants in place of trying
to produce grain for export. Times
