April 27: "H, E. Veateh, conductor on

the wood yard as his train began puling
out on the main track, and in attempt

rolled from under his feet, and missing
his hold on the car no va hurled head
long into a uile of wood by, sustaining
quite a severo cut at the corner of the

his official duties and went ont on the

county and Benton county have "jined

is a first class Modtrn Hotel, so its pros

Gellatly-this hotel has fine sample
rooms over which Mr. Gellstly presides,
sosaysthead-the cards and its letter
heads. Ihe duties of tbe proprietor do
not stop with Ihe "Sample Rooms," but
run down into and up over the earth,

director of the Eagle's samplo rooms etc
is and was the recorder of Bentoa
county and aa we understand is a diver
Blhed farmer of that county. Laat win
ter he did '-lease and to farm let" said
recorder s ollice and after locating in the
golden fiel.'s of Sumpter with millions in
sight, he sella bis home in Corvallis,
eh-.keB the Benton county mud off his
feet and takes his household effects and
family to the high lands ol Baker coua
ly. Lattrlentun cut nty seui up tho
amaECus o ty for a candidate for clerk
ana the olden Eagle man caught up
the. cry midst Sumpter o eleot and Bnow
and came to the rescue and got Ihe nom
ination for clerk ol Beuti n. It's hardly
right to rob Sumpter of its promoter
and citizen tor the sake of making a
clerk for Benton. The Golden Eagle ia
now spreading his sun-lit wings from
tbe rocsa of Baker to the burnt district
of old Benton and at the same time keeps
a claw grip on the sample rooms, the
North Pole, Maidens' Dream, Golconda,
Red Boy, Van Anda, Little Giant, etc.
As uncle Joab Powell would say: "It's
awful trving on the eagle." We congrat
ulate Benton's people o.i iheir broad
Americanism in picking up Ihe Sumpter
Eagle man lor their clerk. Narrow
B'atesmau conld conceive nothing so tar
reaching; but it's rough on Baker couu
