Some years ago an old deacon in Ore
gon was very self-willed, and on two or
three occasions made endless trouble in
church. At last thechnrch clerk got up
and said : "Brethern and sisters, I wish
Deacon Jones was In hell." The new
pastor and the members were horrified
and the pastor said: "Brother Smith,
such a remark is unkind and unchristian,
why do you use such expressions about
a brother?" "Well, pastor," he replied,
"I calculate if Deacon Jones was in hell
about six months he would bust it up."
With two or three exceptions all the
newly-elected county officers have quali

be attended to at once, or it will lie too
late, and in such case the old officers
would hold over for another term. All
the new county officers will take charge
of the respective offices next Monday,
July 2d ; the state officers not until the
first Monday in January, '05.
Because the Glore got the job of
printing the programs for the Fossil
celebration the Journal's rooster nearly
exploded with jealousy and says the work
is not satisfactory to himself, of course.
The (jlouk was ordered to print pro
grams and It did so the regniar sine for
such work, and tho managers informed
ns that the work is perfectly satisfactory.
The big, clumsy, stud-horse posters
printed by the Journal are about as neat
and well printed as if a broom were dip
ped in ink and smeared over the paper.
The Oi-obk is prepared to print posters
and all kinds of job work, any size, from
a postage stamp to the sido of a barn.
AlHMit ten days ago Charley Baker of
this dace was on his way with a load of
wool to The Dalles from Crook county.
While going tip the Deschutes hill a ter
rific waterspout occured just above him
and by the time the water reached him
it was ten feet deep. He had six horses
hitched to his wagons, the rear being
comprised of a trail wagon, on which
was ten sucks of wool and to which was
tied a 7th horse, the latter belonging to
A. N. S. Cottin. This trail wagon and
horso happened to be in a low place in
tho road and were completely swept into
the Deschutes river and lost. Charley
fools very thankful that it was no worse,
as all his horses and other wugon would
have been lost had he been 20 feet fur
ther down the hill at the time. Even
the Iors of the one wagon, the wool and
Mr. Cottin'a horse is considerable such
times as the present. Charley has not

A Long Separation.
from Tlincs-ftuHutultiMr of June 21t .;
Truth is sometimes stranger than fic
tion, and there are events in everyday
life as startling as those which hove
been narrated by celebrated author.
Disappearances and meetings after long
years of separations happen dnily which
would lie interesting reuding matter if
woven into the plot of some novel by
the genius of writers. One of these
happened at The Dalles Tuesday even
ing, which is.both strange and thrilling.
Thirty-eight years ago there lived in the
little town of Dallas, Illinois, a family
consisting of mother and father and two
sons by the name of Fortna. One of
tho children waw aged 20 years, a stal
wart Ioy, full of the ideas of youthful
adventures, and the other a pratling
child of two summers. At that time the
west was the land where fortunes were
thought to be made in a day, and the
elder of the Fortna boys left home for
the Pacific coast. Years rolled by, the
mother and father were laid to rest in
the city of the dead, and the younger
Fortna, at the age of '22 years, left the
now desolate home to try his fortune in
the far west. He wandered to Califor
nia, where he remained Some time, and
about thirteen years ago settled In
Prineville. The elder Fortna in the
meantime had made the tour of the
coast, living for some time in California,
Nevada, and about 'eight years since lo
cated at Mayville, Gilliam county, fol
lowing for a voction, teaming from that
town to The Dalles. Until Tuesday
afternoon, these brothers bad not seen
each other for thirty-eight years, or had
the least knowledge where the other
lived. Mr, Lockhead knew the elder
brother, Mr, John Fortna, very well,
and thought there was a resemblance to
the younger man, R. E. Fortna. John
having fed his horses at his stables that
day and R. E. putting up his team at
Joles Bros., Collins & Co'a feed yard he
conceived the idea of bringing them to
gether and ascertaining the fact whether
they were related. He introduced one
to the other in the store of Joles Brs.,
Collins A Co., and after the usual salu
tation they tiegan to talk about early
reminiscences. The truth immediately
flashed upon their minds that they were
sons of the same father and mother, and
with tears coursing down their bronzed
cheeks they clasped each other's hands
in a brotherly grasp, and were speech
less several minutes. By thone present
it is dcscrilied as the most uflocting scene
ever witnessed, and the brothers were so
overjoyed at seeing each other that
they were confused, and as one of them
expressed himsilf, "didn't know what to
do." When John left home the younger
Fortna had no recollection of him, but
the parents often talked alxmthimaud
wondered where he was, and by this
means he had a constant desire to see
him. Strange to relate, one winter in
California they lived within thirty miles
of each other and did not know it, and
during the years they have teamed from
this city must have seen each other sev
eral times without being aware of the
fact. Hereafter life will seem brighter
to each, and, although one is 58 years
old and the other 40, they are boys again
in their newly-found relationship.
