An Interesting experiment was tried
here a short time ago, Bays the Nation
al Builder. A green six-inch cedar
shingle, fresh from the saw, wus meas
ured and weighed, cure being taken to
gel l oth exact. It was found thai it
weighed seven ounces. It. wus then :
dried und ugaln weighed and meas
ured. It had shrunk nearly one-
eighth of an inch, while the weight
hud decreused from seven ounces to
three, It wus then submerged in
water twenty-four hours, und the size
had not ehauged a particle, while the
weight hud Increased about an ounce,
leuionstrutlng t he superiority of cedar
shingles over others, as when once dry
they will neither shrink with excessive
heat nor pry one another off the roof
in wet weather.
In giving an account of the burning
of Mr. Alex McDonald's burn near
Solo two weeks ago, the cause of the
fire wus given as unknown. A dis
patch iu Tuesday's Oregon ian from
West Sclo cleare up the mystery. It
says that Andrew L Arnold, living
near Sclo, was arrested for firing Alex
McDonald's bam two weeks ago, and
oolifessed to the deed, saying he did so
because, Tillle, McDonald's daughter,
would not accept hiiuus a suitor for
her hand. Tracks in the snow, leading
to the barn, first Caused Arnold to be
suspicloued. Arnold is a man of prop
erty and has given McDonald a note
aeoured by a mortgage for fS500 to re
imburse him for the loss. The com
munity do not attach so much blame
to Arnold as they otherwise would, as
he is regarded as behiga little off, and
many are disposed t regard his barn
burnlng freak as that of a crazy man,

Engine No. 28, southbound met with
a serious uooident, says the Roseburg
Review, just as she w as about to enter
tunnel 6, Sunday morning. A tree came
dowu from the mountain side, striking
the smoke stack, masli lug It li d, and
smashing things generally. Engineer
Waite immediately applied the air
brakes and the train stopped dead
still. Briikesmnn A. T. Moiiun, was
sittlug in the smoking oar and says he
thought they had run into a slide sure
when the train came to such a sudden
stop and the Bound of the escaping
steam from the engine sounded like a
slide coming down the mountain side,
aud he lost no time in getting outside
and wading through the snow to the
engine. Hud the tree struck a little
further buck, Engineer Waite and
I'irenian Evcrton could not have es
caped injury. Conduotor Kearney
went to Glendnle for the extra engine
thore and the tra il wus pulled out
aflcr n delay of rive hours. The hut
icred engine wus taken to Esst, Port

Pursuant to notice, the council met
Tuesday night and gave a hearing to
Messrs. Dubruille and Rawlings lu re
gard to the proposition to supply the
city with water. There was a full at
tendance and a free interchange ot
opinions. Mr. Dubruille made a clear
and Intellectual statement of his prop
osition. He read letters from various
cities in this state and California giv
ing the number of hydrants and their
costs. He offers to furuish Lebunon
with a first-class system at Icbs than
one-half the average price paid hy the
cities from whom he hud letters and
offers reasonable terms In which to
pay the charges. '
The proposition is now being gener
ally discussed by the members of the
council and the citizens at large. All
admit that we have urgent need of
waterworks. The only obstacle is the
tax necessary to raise the money. The
council will act in the matter after
thorough deliberation, after they have
ascertained the wishes of the people.
The time has come when we should
have a water supply for fires and for
domestic use. We hope the council
will finally decide to procure the works,
and that without delay. We need
them, aud cannot risk the ever present
danger or a general K re.

Chill Not In It.
San Francisco, Feb. 13. The
Mornim Call prints an Interview with
the Chillun consul-general ut this port,
N. Guerrero, relative to the telegraphic
dispatch from Vulpuruiso, which stated
that the Chilian warship Impenale
would Boon leave Valparaiso for H&n
Francisco with the exhibit for the
Mr. Guerrero said he did not believe
there wns a word of truth in the state
ment. In the first place there was no
warship of that name Bailing under
the Chilian flag. The South American
Rteamsbtp Co. has a steamer hy that
name, and this was probably the ves
sel referred to in the dispatch. Mr.
Guerrero said he thought that It would
be a long time liefore any port In the
United States would see a Chilian war
ship. "They have not forgotten," he
continued, "either the Iluta or the
Baltimore Incident. They have not
forgotten how the Charleston steamed
down there. Why cnuld not a letter ,
have been sent by the president of the
U. 8. to the Chilian authorities asking
that the Itata return? They would
have Bent her back, and there would
have been ho exliihition of the attempt
to humiliate the Chilian republic"
"There will be no exhibit from Chill
at Chicago. That was settled some
time ago. My government has de
clined to take any part in the world's
fair. The correspondent at Valparaiso
is unrenanie. I nave received advice
there will be no exhibit of Chilian
products at the world's fair."
