An Exprkss reporter learns from
Silas Barr, who came from the McKin
non ranch, two miles above Lower
Soda, Tuesday evening, that Henry
McDowell and his sister, Mrs. James
Gary, and her little boy, met with a
severe accident on the grade three
miles beyond McKinnon's, Tuesday
noon. Mr. McDowell and his bister,
with two or three of her children, had
started to Harney valley, in company
with John Barr, and Silas Barr was
going to assist them to the top of Sand
mountain. When they reached the
above-mentioned grade, Mr. McDow
ell's wagon overturned and the horses
ran away and the parties were thrown
from the wagon. Mrs. Cary was hurt
very badly in the back, and her little
boy's head was badly bruised, also one
arm hurt. Mr. McDowell's face was
badly disfigured; the flesh was torn
from the lower edge of his forehead at
the end of his nose across his forehead
into his hair, making a circle over his
left eye, and the flesh lopped down
over his eye. The3T sewed the flesh
back as best they could, and Silas Barr
hauled the unfortunate parlies to Mr.
McKinnon's and feme back to the val
ley to report to their relatives near
Crawfordsville and get medical aid.
It is not known just how bad they are
injured. Mr. McDowell seemed to be
in his right mind while they were
sewing up his wound, but when Mr.
Barr left there he seemed to be becom

Your presence, '.indness, as well as many favors

reminder of the years you have spent in our

your many lady friends have authorized me to
present to you these small tokens to take with
you to your new home. Please accept them as
coming from your friends, for the many generous
acts and kindness you have displayed while with
us. As tune rolls on may it deal gently with you
and yours, in all things ever remembering that
many heartfelt wishes will ever be for your health
airs, itoiana was completely over

We are glad to see Bird Edwards in
Mis Maude Ralston's familiar voice
is heard in our school room once more.
We suppose Mr. Chas. S- is fol
lowing the plow this fine weather, and
wishing for the last furrow and the
beautiful rain to come, so he can make
one of our number again; at least that
is our wish.
There were two names wrong in the
notes last week. Mrs. Chesher should
have been Mrs. Sturtevant, and Miss
Maggie Shelton should have been Miss
Maggie Sutton, unless she has changed
her name lately.
Mr. Longfellow, our poet of List year,

Caught In a Caudal Appendage.
A few nights ago a married man liv
ing on Main street, after undressing
and preparing for bed, blew out the
lamp and was groping his way across
the room feeling for the bed when h's
toe struck something cold and pliant.
The thing seemed to open its mouth as
the gentleman put the weight of his
toe upon it, and he jerked up his foot
in double-quick time, while the thing
held to and dangled from tne toe.
He did some lively dancing around
the darkened room, and made a lively
racket with his mouth until he suc-
ceeaea in tnrowmg tne tiling across
the room. Then he jumped upon the
table and stood there until he could
light a lamp. Over near where the
thing had struck the wall he saw his
wife's bustle lying on the floor. He
kicked himself a few times and went
to bed, but his wife kept awake
hour laughing at him.
Who Can Beat It?
Mr. Jonathan Wassom has raised
about 200 bushels of potatoes of the
Burbank seedling variety on one quar
ter of an acre of fresh land near the
mill. They are fine large potatoes and
there is scarcely a damaged or rotten
one among them. lHE ji.xpress re
turns thanks for a large donation from
this potato patch.
Now that potatoes are cheap and
plenty is no reason that every bushel
should not be carefully housed and
taken care of. In all probability they
will command a handsome price before
spring; tne crop in California is snort,
besides there will be a considerable de
mand in the East. Already the job
bing merchants are shipping ear loads
East. Farmer friends, take care of
Death of a Bright Little Girl.
It is with sadness that we chronicle
the death of little Genevieve Davidson,
daughter of Jas. and Clara M. David
son. She was taken sick on Sunday
and died Wednesday morning. She

3 years, 5 months and 1 day. The fam
ily have the heartfelt sympathy of the
entire community. Mrs. Davidson is
a daughter of C. B. Montague. The
funeral took place Thursday at 2 P. M.
Services were conducted by Rev. G. W.
Giboney, assisted by Dr. Pettigrew, of
McMinnvIlle, The beautiful white
casket, covered with flowers, was borne
to the cemetery by young ladies, fol-
j lowed by a large concourse of friends.

and sometimes the penalty Is death, as

The Wheat Swindler Again.
The $15 a bushel wheat swindlers
have again bobbed up with their notes,
obtained from Linn county farmers,
on which they demand payment.
These notes, civen by about a dozen
substantial farmers of the county who
were swindled, aggregate about $3000.
It is understood that these men will
employ able counsel and vigorously
defend the case. They certainly ought
to do so, as the whole transaction was
one of the worst swindles ever perpe
trated in this vicinity, and the man
agers of the so-called company ought
to be l'hind prison bars. Herald.
