THE REV. 8AM DRIVER.
The Bee, of Sacramento, Cal., has
the following to say about a man who
Is well known throughout thla part of
the country: "The sudden departure
of a popular minister with about $1,000
of borrowed money in his pockets, the
desertion of his wife and several chll-
ren and the simultaneous disappear
ance of an attractive widow, form the
scandal which Is raging in the foothill
town of Placerville. Abnut eight
months ago Rev. S. M. Driver arrived
in Placerville to take the pastorate of
the Methodist Episcopal church there.
He was about 46 yeara of age, smonthe
shaven and good looking. He wus
accompanied to hia new field by hia
wife and four children. The pastor
about a week ago expressed to his
friends a desire to go to a Methodist
conference which was soon to begin in
Mother part of state. It was these
representations which enabled him to
borrow In sums ranging from (10 to
600, something In the neighborhood
of $1000. Reports differ as to the
aggregate. A week ago Monday the
pastor left, presumably for the confer
ence. It was soon discovered that the
widow had flown after him. He has
written from Lodi, San Joaquin coun
ty, to the church offloers, resigning the
pastorate, and the office has been de
clared vacant. It is said he will be
brought back and prosecuted. He
leaves his family destitute and his 18-year-old
daughter is at death's door
a result of the scandal. He had
charge of a small church in Stockton
for a year up to last September, when
he was transferred to Placerville, very
much against hia will. He is an able
man, and in Eastern Oregon had a
great reputation as a builder of
churches. He is a son of Rev. I. D.
Driver, at present of Eugene. As a
young man, Sam Driver was very
lively and took an active part in demo
cratic politics in Oregon, working with
Bill Watkins, also a successful politi
cian, ma nrst wire left him with a
email child. After a few years he
went to a camp meeting in Benton
county, was reformed and there met
his present wife, who was then a
handsome girl of 19 years. After their
marriage she shaped his course and
led him iuto the ministry. He was
very successful and was a presiding
elder, in Eastern Oregon for a long
High Waters In Portland.
First and Front streets were points
of great Interest aud attraction to
hundreds of citizens this week. For a
distance of several blocks, Front street
was under the dominion of water and
looked like a lagoon. For the time
being, the Willamette asserted herself
in an unmistakable manner. Since
Sunday the volume of water has stead
ily increased, until the flood lion
encroached on the confines of Front
street aud then reached to embrace
First street. The water at the foot of
Stark street indicates a height of 2a .8
feet and the river is steadily rising.
To those doing business along the
water front, tliia altitude is fraught
with significance. It simply means
that first floors muBt be abandoned,
anil all stocks must be removed, with
out delay, one story hght. All along
Front street a very busy and exciting
scene is being enacted. There oiowiIb
of men and many teams, and no end
to splitting and wading about. All
the merchants on the east side of
Front street are very busily engaged
in the removal of all goods that can be
damaged by water. No damage has

FOSTER NOTES. ,
Foster, Or., May:28, 1804.
To th Editor 07 raa Kipnm:
It is plainly evident that the chair
men and committees of the several
parties know times are hard, and
voters are all out of employment, so,
they each have a different day to
peak at the suveral preclncto. We
shall try to remember them tor their
kindness and vote for all the law will
allow. The republican nominees made
a good impressiou when they spoke at
Foster and Sweet Home, and every
one was sure they were Just the doj-b,
and now since the democrats spoke,
why, every man you meet says "I am
going to vote for Vvhltney. He is the '
friend of the people and I will also
vote for that tall crooked-footed fellow
they call "Wid" because unless Whit
ney has helped in the senate, he oan
do nothing. In fact, it Is necessary Unit
we have a full legislative ticket". There
will be many republicans who will
vote for Patterfordcsounty commission
er, and many democrats will vote for
Morris for Treasurer but with few ex
ceptions each party will poll strictly a
party vote, and the people's party,
republicans and democrats are very
evenly divided; there will be about 230
votei cast and 80 will be about the
strongest vote cast. Yet a few men
who have warm dinners here will poll
from 100 to 116 votes.

The Merlford Mail says wood ashes
are worth from $22 to $40 per ton for
use for fertilizers In the eastern states,
yet you can find an ash pile In the
rear of nearly every farmhouse in this
country. Thcylare worth lust as much
to farmers here as they are in New
York and Pennsylvania. If properly
used they will return to you their val

rich lu the element!) that contribute to
the growth of fruit. Many of these
apparently trival matters are the leaks
that take away the profits of the farm
and cause tho farmers to announce
that "farming don't puyi" Poor farm

How to Keep Ice.
A very simple but little known
method of keeping ice is to draw a
piece of thick flannel tightly over some
deep yessle, like a bowl, for instance,
and fasten it there. Tho ice is placed
on top of this drumhead and covered
loosely by another piece flannel. In
this condition the ice keens cold aud
even freezes to the flannel. Thus a
small piece of ice oan be kept a long
time, To break the ice a sharp needle
or hut pin Is the best thing. Force It
in and you will be astonished to see
how easily it will divide theioe. ,
