To THP. KniToR op the Exrasss:
A short lime slnne, in s spirit of fun,
while time hung heavy on Idle bands,
I sent you for publication "A Day's
Jaunt," In which was engrossed
nothing but the xaot truth as far ss
I went, but out of compassion for
erring man I suppressed a few points
that it may have been well tn mention,
but as It is written, it will have to
pass. ,
Now conies one, "A Fi'iend to the
Needy," who tries to diagnoses "case"
where he has never been called to pre
scribe, and he will And It one of the
most difficult cases he ever tackled.
In fact, he is used to breaking the
haughty bunch grass colt and may
Imagine that a little bad language is
all that Is required in this cane. We
will not Infer that he Is on his way to
hades; no sir; after a careful perusal of
his brilliant eSbrI(?) we can safely say
be Is on the high road to heaven.
Why! Because the Scriptures lead us
to believe that "idiots" go to that
place of abode. As to the harmony In
our "great mental tabernacle," don't
worry. There was harmony enough
for a far more- able, man than "A
Friend to the Needy" In days gone by
as perhaps your brother can testify to
if you write him lino. And to-day
we would not trade our "great mag
netic current," weak us it Is, for your
poor llltlt hold on life or a town lot iu
your beaulirulclty of learning.
By the way, as have a little story
that may not be out of place right
here; "A Frleid to the Needy" once
came to Waterloo, yea, even unto G.
W, Sanford, a fortune teller, or seller,
of no little repute, and stretching bis
Beautiful shape upon the operating
table (a saw-buck) told G. W. to reel
It off at so much per reel. After a
careful survey of the premises, George
Indignantly exclaimed, "This is no
head at all, though my eyesight may
be dim you can't fool me. This la one
of those old Lebanon, street lamps and
a badly cracked one at that.
With best wishes fur you and trust
ing that you will consult your alma
nac. nn:re clorfly in the future and not
mistake the date when you will "get
full," also keep your "slack," like vi'ur
soda, well corkeil and far from my
oaeK stoop, not worry about the un
pleasant Journey on which lam bent,
remember the old say, that "truth is
stranger than fiction," in your case, at
least, and if our "aim pie gabble" Is not
up to the standard of the dime novels
you have tieen reading, remember it is
like salvation, free, and you can do as
you do by that not indulge. Don't
worry about it too much. Remember
we edited a paper some years before you
began practice on your former patients,
"bunch grassers," and trusting Ooxey
may know what you are good for, as
no one else has ever been able to find
out, that you will take many mineral
baths and amass much fat, and not be
troubled by going crauy, but that is
not possible for a thing without brains
can't go crazy, I remain your dear,
patient Agony.

Another Swindling Schema,
A new game ha been iuveuted by
harpers to Mb the farmers and here it
1: A smooth-tongued fellow approach
es a farmer, claiming to have a new
slckle-grlnder and secures him as agent
in that neighborhood. He Is persuaded
into singnlng a contract for one-half
gross of the machines for trial. The
wordlngof the contract is changed and
some Usurers added which makes the
order call for $2200 worth of machines.
A few days afterward another fellow
appears and dames that the machines
have arrived, and presents his bill.
The farmer is paralyzed and denies
the account. Of course he is then
shown his signature and sees that they
have the best of him. A compromise
is offered that he pay a few hundred
dollars, and be finally accepts. Plain

return the compliment (of mixing our

to write about, which we left there
four years since.
Many of our worthy people are going
and it few have gone. Mr. Parker and
fiunily are greatly missed. Mr. Rob
insoi leaves iu a few days for the Pa

Alberta; Mrs. Bitter to Albany; Mr. j
Leigh to Guinea; Mr. Bice is corres
ponding for a position as ald-de-camp
for Ooxey, and a general exodus is
looked for. Although those who go,
it is sad to say, return all too soon.
The boys who went to view the caves
In Josephine county have all returned,
and report that the closing down of a
shingle mill that employed eight men
has caused an overproduction of the
Rumor of a band of Improved James
and You peer boys caused no little un
easiness In town Friday evening, but
later advices show that it was only a
couple of boys who traded off their
grandpa's horse to cause a little excite
ment in Bodaville. Executioner or
Constable James Found was out with
a posse to guard the roads, we suppose
be thought they would be stolen next,
and a lieutenant was sent to warn
Sweet Home of the danger of their
branch line, but the boys had flitted

Mr. Cal Jewshurp, what has the
Crank done now? "Who is my neigh
bor" according to scripture? It is just
barely possible possible I may not have
any of those dreadful parasites who
prey upon humanity, and even borrow
the gnlluses off one's back. And If
you think for a second that my carcass
will ever be sat upon by a populist
coroner or filled by wind from your
diseased lungs, you are about as far off
as you are on other subjects; and we
have serious deubts about the Oregon
ian receiving a gratuity of any kind
from such a course. If any proceeds
were available, I had much rather the
peopled party had them that their
candidate for assessor might attend
college for a short time that be might
embrace the opportunity ofacquiiing
a taste for the beautiful, especially in
the English language, and not write
those "awfully utter" Blips for the
In conclusion, and valedictory: As
it has been prophesied, so mote It be.
With this issue the Crank ceases to
turn. We have fulflilled our mission,
and will lay the quill upon or under
the table and sin uo more, for it cer
tainly is a sin te speak or write of peo
ple who are too poor to be honest, who
would gladly follow Coxey to Wash

would kindly furnish the provender.

they may not come amiss.
The weather has been unusually
cold and rainy this spring. We have
had a few frosty nights but I don't
think it has Injured tbe fruit crop.
Farmers are wishing for warmer
weather to accelerate the growing of
their crops.
There Is considerable improvement
here this spring in grubbing, clearing,
and fencing. Several orchards have
been put out aud iu spite of tbe hard

His Valedictory.
The editor of the weekly Ad in Argus
in the issue of the 28th of April says:
With this issue of the Argus we cease
our editorial labors and retire to pri
vate life. Not that we have made a
competency of the business but we are
tired and our readers are more so, We
will, owiug to the tardiness of tbe
delinquents, postpone our trip to
Canada; the journey is a long and we
are opposed to hooting it. The peo
ple are endowed, with ..more patience
than we thought and we thank them
for it. We know they have been sore
ly tried by us, . but it was through
ignorance on our part, We are like
the cork on the fisherman's line, we
are floating on tbe editorial sea; we've
got a bite, are pulled under aud down
we go.
The Skyoycle to be a Success.
Fred Merrill says his "Skycyole" is
bound to be a success. Several good
working models have been constructed
and they prove more and more the
feasibility of navigating the air by
means of velocipede power. The pat
ents are owned by Joaquin Miller and
myself. You have but to wait a short
time to be able to puichase a "Cloud
Rambler" which will enable you to
explore the mysteries of the world
above." This Is the G. M. Miller fly
ing machine referred to. Eugene

On last Sunday morning, Birdie, tbe
little two-year-old daughter of Wm.
Brenner by some means In passing too
near the fire place got her clothing
afire. Tbe mother had just gone to an
adlolning room for an article of cloth
ing when attracted by the child's
screams, wrapped the dress she fortu
nately had in her hand about the little
girl aud smothered out the flames.
The little girl was very badly burned,
but hopes are entertained for her
"McMahan's Wasp."
L. H. McMahn's new paper tbe
"McMahn's Wasp," has made Its ap
pearance. The editor says: "This
paper is not published for the purpose
of making money. I have learned
that the people take newspapers for
news and political papers for politics,
I have also learned (at an expence of
fSOOO) that no paper in Oregon can suc
cessfully compete with tbe Oregoniati
in the matter of furnishing current
news to the people. Therefore, I shall
never again publish a newspaper in
tills state, but will confine my work
tn thisdirectton to editorial discussion
of political and social atlalrs.

Whale Ashore Near Newport
The Gazette tells about it as follows:
A large sperm whale one hundred feet
in length was washed ashore two and
one-half miles above Newport last '
Sunday evening, and on Mouday
morning' the bench was alive with -spectators
who came to gaze at tilt)
monster. Great armies of men were
soon engaged in cutting It up and sav
ing the oil. Three or four hundred
gallons have been saved so far, and
about 250 pounds of whalebone have
been secured. One half of the jaw
boue measured 23 feet in length and
about one and oue-baif feet iu diameter.
George E. Waggoner, from whom the
above information was recieved says
that "to a causal observer It would "ap
pear that its soul bad winged its flight
many moons ago, and it seems a pity
thai such a large hearted thing should
die. The body of the whale is oovered
over with barnacles, aud as It lies up
on the sandpit has the appearenoe of
a wrecked freight train.
A Good Railroad Item.
Tbe following from the Astorlan it
the best railroad item Astoria has had
for some time: Late last evening it
was learned that the first eastern
money Astoria has seen from a rail
road source was a New York draft for
$5,000 given to the Fultou Bros, by
Edward Browne yesterday to lift
judgment they held agaiust the As
toria and Portland railroad, Mr.
Browne was hunted up, and lu an
interview stated that he would not go
Into specific details, but the flnances
are all arranged for back east, and that
he Is hero to take np the Nehnlern
route road and complete it, aud ex
pects to stay here until all the arrange
ments are made and work begun oit
