The Eugene Guard Is responsible for
the following: Harry Wyalt, a fifth
rate bilk, left here on this morning's
ove-jiind, accompanied by his wife.
He is likely to turn up at Albany,
Corvallis or Vancouver. These towns
are hereby given warning to allow
him a wide birth. While he lived
here about 18 months he managed to
live here without work by borrowing
small sums of money, from, everyone
who would loan him any, and never
repaying it. His wife is an estimablo
woman who knows little of his mg
ury. J. R. Templeton, an Oregon pioneer,
tailed in Thursday says the Browns
ville Times, and told us of a discovery

fair to be a valuable find. He and

IB" years ago, and when several feet
lielow the surface of the earth, they
discovered something which resem
bled coal oil. They thought nothing
more about It until a few days ago
when Mr. Templeton happened to
notice an oily substance upon the
water in the well, aud upon investi
gation it proved to be coal oil In a large
quantity. We hope his find will
prove a valuable one.
A well-known Salem banker offers
a suggestion that might be well con
sidered by the woiWs fair commis
sion of the state. There is no firmer
wheat in the world than that grown in
this state, and he would- buy 5000 bush
els of selected quality and exhibit it in
glass bins in the agricultural building.
He would also have a great number of
small seeks with the words "Oregon
Wheat" printed on them and a day
advertised by placards on the wheat
bins for distribution of these sacks full
of wheat to visiting farmers. He
would do the same thing with the
fruit, being very careful in its select
ion aud sending it forward on passen
ger trains. Thlsh would have ad
vertised for distribution on a certain
day. He thinks by his method Ore
gon would get bo thoroughly adver
tised that It would in the uext five
years more than double the otherwise
immigration to the state in general
and In the Wilalmette valley In par
ticular. Last Monday the cry of Ore was
given, and our fire department quick
ly responded. The fire was found to
be in J. Houk's house on Maiu street.
By the time the fire department readi
ed it, the fire was under good head
way and as there was no cistern near
the property the boys were powerless
and soon the building was consumed.
Mr. Wallace who was occupying the
house succeeded in getting out all of
his house-hold goods that were down
stairs, but all that was up stairs was
consumed. Mr. Houk's loss was $400.
Mr. Wallace's loss was about $100.
There was no Insurance. It is sup
posed that the lire originated from n
defective flue. Before the fire was out
theA.O. U.W., of which M. Wal
lace was a member, had rented one of
F. M. Miller's houses for him, and had
hie goods moved in.
On Thursday last some box care for
the Northwest foundry were backed
Inside the brick wall of the state pen
itentiary. The next moringa tramp
who had been stealing a ride crawled
out of one of the cars. To say he was
surprised on rubbing his eyes open and
looking about him is drawing it ex
tremely mild. He was dumfounded,
and his eyes stuck out with astonish
ment until they might have served
well as pegs to hang hats on. But
there was no getting out of his predic
ament. He was in the penitentiary
without a commitment. Mr. Tramp
attempted to scale the walls, but failed,
and he was soon found by the guards.
He was given bis breakfast and turn
ed loose the happiest hobo out of jail,
The next time he kindly hides him
self from the view of the public he
will select a box car going the other
direction from the penitentiary.
