roveral farmers from Virginia have
been looking around through the
mountain counties of Western Penn
sylvania with a view to establishing a
"goose farm." Among tho party are
James Bench, Harry Bailey and James
Connor, all of whom are from Balti
more, Md. The latter said:
"Y'es, we want to secHre a farm of
several acres, with a stream of water
with rock bottom running through it,
to start in the business of raising geese.
It may seem like a rather curious busi
ness to engage In, but there Js money
in 11. Wefot our Idea from the great
goose farm started some time ago down
on the eastern shore of Virginia.
Within an area of 3000 acres thore Uvea
0000 geese of several varieties, attended
by herders, and regularly fed with
corn, etc. The oVject is the collection
of down for quilts and pillows, and
every six weeks a plucking takes
place, only the breasts and sides under
the wings being plucked. Every goose
will prouuee one pound of feathers per
annum, which can readily be sold for
50 cents per pound. We want to start
with 500 geese, and calculate that they
will raise 3000 goslings a year.
"In addition t tiie money received
for feathers, we propose to sell off the
young geese and can realize from 7o
cents to $1 apiece for them. We have
several farms hi view along the line of
the Pennsylvania road, and tip to the
Monongahela river, but will not make
a definite choice for the farm for a few
days yet. Geese live forever you might
say. Five hundred matrons will
weather the storms of forty winters at
least, barring accidents. They raise
their young with the utmost care, and
counting six geslings to a brood, you
haveSiXiO marketable fowls each full
besides the down. Of course, we expect
increase the stock as circumstances
will permit Pittsburg Dispatch.
Our good3 reach us direct from the
manufactory and every pair cf our
btxits and shoes are fully warranted.
When you need any boots or shoes look
over Montagues large new stock.
Business location n went side of
Main street, in Lebanon, at a bargain,
for the next few days. For particulars
inquire of M. E. Hearn.
We call the attention of the farmers
to tho fact that we-are running our
chopper ou Thursday, Friday and Sat
urday of each week. Our prices are
reasonable aud work guaranteed.

NEARLY A FLOOD.
Terrible Destruction All
Over the Valley.
BRIDGES ALL WASHED AWAY
TRAINS DELAYED ALL
Nearly Equal t the Flood, of '01.
The streams throughout the valley,
especially the Willamette river, hare
been flooding the whole country for
the past' week. It is said that the wa
ter was higher than in 1881, and only
lacked two feet of being as high as in
1861, which was the greatest flood ever
known in the valley. ,
In Albany the water of the Willam
ette river reached nearly to First
street and did considerable damage
along the river bank, somo of, which
was to wash out both tho Union Paci
fic and Oregon Pacific wharves, and
wing of the mouteith mill, besides
damaging several other bulidings
along tho bank.
On account ef the headgatos going
out the canal overflowed its banks in
several places between here and Al
bany, doing much damage; particular
ly on the farm of Mr. John Smith,
between Spicer and Tallman.
In Salem the Willamette Is said to
have deno more damage than in any
other portion of the valley. The most
disastrous result was the washing
away of the bridge across the Willam
ette. The south end of the Wridge on
the Marlon county side was the first to
giveaway, apparently from the bot
tm and the two main spans of the
bridge, and in about three hours the
rest went down the river.
Tljo Spirugfield wagon bridge,which
is about three miles above Eugene, was
also swept away. Several small hous
es were washed away at Eugene, but
no serious damage was done.
Oregon City has had considerable
damage done to it. Several good
buildings were washed out and water
was running two feet deep through the
We learn that the water was up to
Front street in Portland and still ris
ing. Ail railroads In the valley were
stopped this week, the last train that
came up having stopped In Albany,
where it is now, and there is no telling
when It will get away.
At Brownsville the Calapooia spread
all over the south side and part of the
north side, doing considerable damage
but we did not learn the particulars
further than that the soutli end of tiic
bndge was washed away. The train
came down on the narrow gauge yes
terday for the first time this week as
At Lebanon Saturday evening tho
river was reported still in it banks.but
about midnight it commenced rising
very fust and by Sunday morning was
out of all bounds, and all over the
bottoms, and by 10 A. si. had Hooded
all tho bottom between tho bridge and
slaughter house on this side (west) of
the river, having risen to tlio top rail
ing of the bridge across the slough, en
tirely submerging it. At about eleven
o'clock a boat was secured by Joseph
Harbin, Lee Boise aud Win, Osborne,
who started out to take those who had
already been surrounded by water to
places of safety. They first went ufter
the family of Mr. Junkers, who lives
about half a mile above tho bridge,
consisting of Mr. Junkers, his wife,
who was quite sick, and son. They
then took the boat to tin; llouk hop
yard and hvlpcd out a family who hud
recently moved iu from the stales, and
not knowing what had happened were
well nigii frightened out of their wits,
aud had moved to the upper part of
the dry house and prepared to make
tiie best of it, but were only too glad to
leave. They then went to see
about the McCormick family, who live
aiiout four miles south of hcn. They
never sturted until dark, and then hud
to go through woods and underbrush,
aud cross a slouch, and lis neither had
be'i there Loforo they had a tough
t ma of it. H iwever they reached thu
hnuso about ten o'clock nd found
everything flooded, and the family
badly scared, Lut owing to its
being lato they waited until morning
before venturing out. It was a consid
erable of an undertaking to go in to the
family As It was they hardly escap
ed being drowned, the river having
broke one of the oars, and they only
escaped by cling to the picket feuce.
The high water washed cut both of
tho head gates of the Albany canal
about four o'clock Sunday afternoon.
At about ten o'clock Sunday night tho
flume of Nickerson'u planer was swept -away
by the floods and tho flume of
the grist mill badly Impaired, besides
otherwise washing around and damag
ing the structure, which will necessa
rily delay work for several weeks.
There has been some stock lost ; Mr.
Scantland lost two cows and Ed. Kel
lenburger lost several hogs.
The south approach of the Waterloo
bridge was washed out.
O? W. Wheeler lost most of his logn,
but no ether damage was done to the
The trains from here to Albany were
probably the only ones that ran on
time in Oregon all this week. They
can make as much fun of the bob-tail
train as they please, but it never fails
to get therei
Taken all together, Lebanon camo
out with less damage than any other
town In the valley, which we think
speaks well for it. Moral: Buy prop
