a decision recently that owners of
dogs should take note of. It was
the case of Cameron vs O'Brien, to
recoyer damages from the owner of
a dog which barked and frightened
the plaintilfs horse. The plaintiff

diver, claims to have located the
ill-starred steamer, Brother Jona
than, which went down July- 3,
1865, somewhere near Crescent
City, Cal., together with 147 pas

amount of treasure. Ryan says
that G. W. Hill, who was assistant
engineer and one of the nineteen
survivors, assisted him to locate
the vessel, which, lies in several
hundred feet of water, in apparent
good condition. Ryan has a ship
bucket bearing the name of Brother
Jonathan which he found on the
wreck. In the spring he will make
preparation to raise the vessel and
recover the treasure. '
A drummer is responsible for the
following story: A minister once
had a swearing parrot, He com
plained to a friend and' ihe latter
told him how to cure the bird of its
profanity. He said as soon as the
bird began to swear, to swing the
cage around rapidly ten times and
then douse a bucket of water on the
parrot. The next time the parrot
swore, the minister did as directed..
Then after setting the cage down
he glanced at the bird, half dazed
ftWrrjfrjf its feathers ruffled, arid
askeoKv "yVell now, how do you
leeu "uti! said the parrot, look-
in the Quicksands.
Two young women who were driv
ing on the beach almve San Francisco,
Cal. , narrowly escaped a terrible death
not Ions; ago. Extreme low tide, south
of the Cliff House, uncovers treach
erous quicksands, and travel along the
bench is hazardous. The young women,
with the horse and buggy, did not
know this, and were enjoying them
selves hugely, when tho horse began
to struggle frantically to get out of the
sand that reached almost to his knees.
All his strong eudeavois wore vain,
though, against the suction, and In a
moment,, as his whole frame shook and
convulsed In an upward, onward Im
pulse, he fell on his side and became
more helpless; but he fell toward land.
The wagon had, at this time, gone
down so fur that the tide, just In the
begiuning of the flood, washed over
the hubs. TerriUed were the women;
but a leap from the vehicle would have
only increased the danger. To scream
for help was the only hope, but the
shouts were lost In the thundering
surf. At this critical moment Captain
Bush, of the Ocean House, chanced to
look along the shore and saw the vic
tims. His horse was standing by and
he dashed to the rescue, and when he
got there the waves were breaking over
the buggy box. But he pushed his
way to the bttggy and bidding the
women, one at a time, jump into his
arms, carried them to the shore in
safety. They were drenched and bad
ly frightened, but otherwise uuinjured.
The captain then cut the harness away
from the poor horse, and be struggled
until he reached 'fjrm footing. The
uusoppwireu, -uqe-tue young
women were too happy ovor their own
escape to care for that. The West.

days ugo before Judge Fullertou, who
took the matter under dvisemt-ut. A
decision was sent, sustaining the plain

defenses set up by the assignee of H.

money a trust fund aud giving the

positors. The College case stands on
the same ground aud this decision in

The Heppner Gazette says: There is
au Item afloat to the effect that In a
neighboring t"wn is a ledjjo of Farmers
Alliance, which meets Monday tiiyhl.
There is only one lodge room In the
town, and Tuesday nights It is occu
pied by Knights of Pythias. The
president of one of the sub-alliances
came to town Tuesday, and seeing a
light In the lodge room concluded he
would go over there. He gave the
proper knock at the outer doar. The
wicket was raised aud an car plaoed to
hear the password. "I plow, I hoe, I
spade," whispered the alliance man.
The ear was replaced with au eye, and
in turn It gave place for a mouth,
which whispered in reply, "The h
you do," and the wicket was dropped
with a bang. The Indignant farmer
shortly after met a "brother," to whom
be told his tale of woe. "Why, dod

brother, "them's Knights of Pythias
