purchaser home on his arm.

That there is nn Immense gas field
lying in part within the limits of our
town, cannot be doubied by anyone
who has the slightest acquaintance
with tiiis luminous agent- Since its
first discovery, some three month
since, the tests have been both varied
and numerous, and the settled convic
tion of our citizens is that we have In
our little town the elements" of a thrifty
little city. AH thoughts of marsh gas
have been dispelled, as none of the
properties of this gas can be ascribed
to the late discovery. Organized effort
will soon bring to the surface what
seems to be an inexhaustible supply of
this gas, and tuel and light will cut
but a small figure in the annual ex
penditures of the families in this and
more distant parts of the country.
Much ado has been made over the
cam of John J. Brown, c harged with
sweating twenty-dollar pieces. Physi
ologists mention two kinds, or degrees
of perspiration, the sensible aud Ihe
insensible. John Brown's is the only
case of sensible sweating on record.
For thirty-five years we have endured
every degree of' heat known to Fahren
heit's thermometer, from the gentle
perspiration to the drenching night
sweat, and the largest coin we ever
sweat was a buzzard dollar, and then
we had a good run of job work. The
Inconsistency of calling in Coke and
Blackstone to settle a disputed physio
logical fact when any old woman can
cure the worst case of sweating in
twelve hours with sycamore chips and
sage tea! Well, since it is a crime to
sweat, we propose to cease our la bore
right now and look fora sinecure per
haps a position on the Lebanon Ex
press. An exchange says that "the average
number of hairs on the human scalp
varies" and that "a sinirle hair can
support the weight of two ounces." If
the former statement be applied to
males only, we accent it in toto; the
number of hairs on men's heads do
vary crreatlv. the minimum number
leing found ou the married man's
head every time; and there is a
reason for this, which we decline to
give, on the ground that the problem,
justly belongs to woman, is not above
her iutellectual stature, and is in har
many with the whole bent of her mind.
The second statement, that "a single
hair can support the weight of two
ounces," we accept with considerable
reserve. A very small tuft of hair a
handful for instance has been known,
in a crucial test, to suppoit a weight of
two hundred pounds. Brethren, be
careful how vou write: a few loose
! statements like the latter will bring
it! p'oioRwon into disrepute.
1U UMKB TO DEATH.
Mrs. Elliott, wife of Jon Elliott, waa
burned to death at Glass's hop yard, on
Thomas creek, last Thursday. The
Sclo Press gives the following account
of the horrible accident:
"Thursday, Mr. Elliott's baby being
tick, she did not go to the hop yard,
but stayed in camp, and waa busying
herself about camp work. In passing
around the camp tire her clothing was
lighted. She had smelled the burning
cloth for some little time before she
discovered thittlt whs her own clothing
that was on lire. She then stalled to
the tent to get a blanket to smother
out the flumes. At the tent door she
met her l.S-motith'S-old baby, nod even
at thp exciting moment the safety of
her child predominating over personal
pain, she took it and placed it out of
harms way, a few feet distant, and
then returned to the tent for the
blanket and rolled herself therein In the
attempt to smother nut the flames that
were by this time blistering and crisp
ing her flesh. She rolled the blanket
around as well as she could, but the
agony she was undergoing was so great
ihnt.Hhe threw the blanket away and
st at fed for tho hop yard near by, all
the time screaming for help. Tho first
person Hie met was a man, and of
course she went to him for help. He
not having any other nie.ins of putting
out tho tire, commenced throwing dust
ou the burning woman. Other help
arriving, the" unfortunate woman's
burning clothing was torn from In r,
what little there was left by this time,
ami she was conveyed to her tent by
kind hands and word sent for the doe
tor and the husband, who was, as be
fore stated, at Lebanon. Upon exam
inntion Mrs. Elliott pioved to le liter
ally rousted, with the exception of her
arms and a e. Her shoes evert wrt
burned In a crisp upon her feet. Mrs.
Elliott, whose age Is but 23, leaves a
huf.hand and a little child but about 18
The remains were brought to Leba
non and funeral servlci s were held at
the Presbyterian church, Sunday, and
the burial took place at the Masonic
cemetery. Mr. Elliott and family re
cently moved to near this place from
Crook county. She was the daughter
of Geo. Mlllican, a prominent citien

Not Quite an Accident.
As we entered the cut at Ward's

bilities were shocked beyond measure
by the din and clatter of a dmengagid
brake on the mail coach which waa

and seemed to menace the safety of the
passengers. An animated conversa

tietween the brukemen and tho engi
neer for a short time and the train sud
denly halted. The train was stopped
none too soon, for had the brake fallen
olf it would have derailed the coach
and might have resulted seriously.
