about 1 o'clock, but little attention was
paid to it at the time.

ous young man of steady habits and
had not been ill. He was aged 28, and

letin, No. 29. For the week Saturday,
September, 16th, 1891.
In Western Oregon harvesting of
cereals Is over. There are a few small
amounts of wheat and oats to thrash..
There was no appreciable damage
done by the rains. The buckwheat
crops of Clackamas county is very
good, small portions of it were dam
aged by the rain. Hops are about all
baled. Experiments show that sugar
beeni and sorghum do very well in
Washington oounty. The rains soft
ened the earth sufficient hi allow of
plowing in many counties- In por
tions of Linn oounty the corn Is not
ripening well. In Douglas county
the wheat was not over an average in
quantity per acre and quality, cats
however are above the average. In
Jackson county grapes are ripening
and wine making will begin next
week. In Curry ounty a 200 acre
field of barley, oats and wheat aver
aged 50.51 and 85 bushels per acre re
spectively. Report indicate that
every one is well satisfied with the re
sult ef the harvest.
Iu Eastern Oregon harvesting and
threshing is generally over except
in Union, Wallowa and Baker coun
ties where threshing is being finished
up. , Crops have been secured with
out any damage from climatic con
ditions, as is the rule. Large yields
are reported from every county, vary
ing from 10 to 60 bushels per acre in
some localities to 80 add 40 bushels
per acre in others. In Union county
for example one field of 600 acres av
eraged a fraction over" 40 bushels per
acre. The corn in Umatilla county
is unusually good. The fruit along
the Snake river was never so good and
plentiful, in Wasco, Umatilla and
Union counties the orchards are filled
with fruit, and the smaller orchards
of the other counties have done re
markably well. The harvest .has
been one of plenty, and the quality of
cereals and fruit a good average.

The following dispatch from Pitts
burg, Penn., dated Sept. 27th brings
Into prominence a former resident of
Albany and Lebanon, who left here ;
about six weeks ago. "Dr. W. C Ne
gus, of Blnghamton, N. Y., came to
Homestead, thiB county, about ten
days ago and recovered his 7-year old
son from C. C. Long. The doctor told
a story that the lad was a son of a
wealthy Portland, Or., man and had
been kidnapped six years ago. He
(Negus) was a government detective
and had lecaptured the boy after a
long search and would get 5,000 for
his trouble. Long has got tired of the '
unpleasant notoriety it gave him and
now tells his side of the case. Long
says that some years ago, while living
at Riehburg, N. Y., he employed Mrs.
Negus to care for his parents, who were
very old. She brought her boy along,
haying been divorced from the doctor.
Long and the woman fell in love and
were married. After the death of the
elder Mrs. Long they removed to this
county. Last March Long's wife died,
and when Dr. Negus heard of it he be
came anxious to have his toy back so
he came on to Homestead, saw Long,
and without any difficulty recovered
the little fellow, and Long is at a loss
to undsrstand the father's motive for
telling of the abduction case." -- Dent,
