There is an interesting case in

$300 is involved. In 1891 one
Getchell paid that amount for a

but the council refuses, claiming
that he has had value received.
Paul, the little son of Mr. and

Shewasengagedin housCMlaworK,
and complained to her mother tliat
she had ,.a sudden and severe pain
in her forehead. A local physician
was sent for, but she grew no better,
and Dr. Calberth was summoned.
He arrived after her death, which
occurred after two hours of suffering.
The cause of her death is thought
to have been the bursting of a blood
vessel in the head. The girl was
of robust constitution.
A Btormofseverefury visited the

were blown down and sheds carried

orchards of fruit and leaves, and
pounded growing and headed wheat
into the ground. Some trees were
torn, off at their base. Whole
flocks of chickens and turkeys were
annihilated, and the young ducks
along the lake shore were blown
about and drouned.
It seems that Harry Dunn, bul
letined somewhat noisily as the
first inmate of the soldiers' home,
was; refused admittance by the
examining board. The Salem
Journal is taking up the matter
and making quite a diverting effort
to force an issue on it. Dunn's
"right" name, it seems, is Sergeant
Henry Campbell, of the Twenty
ninth Massachusetts Infantry, and
a war record of half a column of
minion. The objection to him is,
he is able to earn his living.
i The Dalles Chronicle says: We
are getting out this issue as the
water comes in on us. A force of
men are moving out our stock of
type and material, and hence we
can gather but little news. In fact
there is none to gather, there is
nothing but water and plunder,
moving boats, gum boots and lum
ber, and over and above all an
anxiety as to the. outcome. First
street is a river, Second a canal,
and Third a lake, and still it comes.

Called her away from this world of care;

Unfortunate Portland.
People who have been in Portland
say that the work of the high water
has been very devastating, causing
untold damage to property. Business
1b completely paralyzed in Inundated
district. Those located on higher
ground are reaping the benefit. It Is
claimed the water will probably re
main three weeks. When It subsides
it will leave the streets lu a filthy con
dition, and will probably a deprecia
tion in the value of the lower property
of fully half. Employment will be
offered to all the idle for weeks iu
cleaning up. If disease does not follow
it will be a miracle.
Swank's Theory.
S. . Swauk, populist candidate for
joint senator explains it all this way:
'It was all done with money. If the
populists had had tbe money that the
republicans had to spend, they would
have won the battle. Bribery and
corruption was practiced on every
hand. Money was spent at every
cross-road. As soon as It was known
that the republicans were going to
down Pennoyer for tbe United States
Senate, money flowed in from the
east like water. That's what done it."
Mr. Swank is again selling flour for a
living. Salem Journal.
Big Hall. ,
The Frineville News says: The
Btage driver informs us that on Wed
nesday Just as he drove out of Cow
canyon, there came up a hail storm in
which hall fell as large as eggs, killing
a lot of poultry in that neighborhood.
When the umbrellas were raised to
protect the passengers the hailstone
passed through them as if tbey had
been tissue paper. In fact this is
peculiar weather we are having. Did

Garden Okoae, Cat., JuncO, 181)4
To tke Editor op thb Exwmmh:
If you will allow me a small space
In your valuable paper, I will try and
give you a brief description of our
small city and surrounding country.
Garden Grove is .situated thirty-four
miles south of Los Angeles, Ave nilta
west of dunta Ana, and ten miles from
the beach. Population abouttwo hun
dred' There is a store, blacksmith
shop, two public school buildings,
church, post office and creamery.
Climate pleasant and agreeable, but
too dry for a good orop this year. In
fact California has made a grave fail
ure in hay and grain this year; the
worst that they have had for many a
year. You can count field after field
of barley that did not get up high
enough to cut, for bay, with a mower,
Have foggy mornings about half of
the time up to uine or ten o'clock,
then the sun comes out, sea breeze
springs up and continues the remain
ing part of the day. Nlghui are very
cool. Barley and alfalfa make the hay
while sugar beets are cultivated quite
extensively for the sugar factory.
Very little wheat and oats are raised
on account of tbe rust. We have had
one rain large enough to lay the dust
since we have been here, which was
the second rain ot the year. The roads
are nice only there is to much dust for
comfort. Most of the people are social
ahd pleasant but there are exceptions.
Some people are. in love with the
country and would not trade it for the
Garden of Eden at time of Adam,
While the next person you meet is
going to get out of this place Justus

If you would take a drive through
the country you would see a sign
similar to this:
"This place for sale,"
And taking a small boys answer for it,
you would have; "He has come to
California and gone busted." The
fact is they paid twu prices for the
climate, and tbe land, well that was
Just thrown in. California is not what
it is cracked up to be. The soil here
is a light sandy loam with alkilt well
mixed through it. The orange and
walnut groves and artlsian wells are
three of the nicest things they have
here, and would be a credit to any
wed-foot"rauch-, Mostofthe farmers
have their hay crop what little they
have got taken care of, and a few have
commenced ou their second crop of
The Saeremen to valley is the nicest
place I ever saw. At tbe time we
came down the fields were all green;
and big oak trees dotted the grain here
and there, while those large peach
orchards were in full bloom, making
tbe air so sweet and fragrant. I will

James M. Buiitknshaw,
PoiiTLANn, June 13. Crop-weather
bulletin No, 11, Issued by the state
weather service, says:
The waters in the rivers are fulling.
The maximum height, 33 feet was
reached at Portland on Thursday the
7th; it began to recede on the 8th; at
present it has fallen three ieet. The
extreme height was 4 8 feet above the
high water murk of June, 1876, and
4.3 feet above the spring freshet in the
Willamette of February 6, 1890, In
the 50's there was a flood, the second
was In 1862, the third in 1876, the
spring flood iu the Willamette in 1890
I was the fourth, and this one is the
filth, the greatest of all in thu history
of the settlement of the country pruc-
Ically now fifty years. Cool weather
prevails over the country drained by
the Columbia and tributary rivers,
hence the flood will disappear at the
rate of from six to ten inches a day.
Crops All vegetation has made ex
cellent growth during the past week;
the weather conditions were very
favorable. The hay crop is unusually
heavy and is now ready to cut; in
seme sections the ruins have caused it
to fall down. Warm, dry weather is
desired to enable haying to progress.
In those few sections where natural
drainage is imperfect and artificial
drainage has net been resorted to,
some of the fall sown wheat is show
ing the effects of the damp weather;
but no serious damage is anticipated.
Spring sown grain is very promising.
The grain has all stooled well and has
a very thrifty appearance. The out
look at the present time is most flatter
lug for a very heavy yield of grain.
Cherries and strawberries are ripening,
a few days of sunshine will cause them
to ripen very rapidly, fruit and berries
while they were generally slightly in
jured by the late frost of May, are very
promising. The flood of the Columbia
has done very little damage to vegeta
tion, except to the hay and vcgefjblo
productions along the northern edge
of Multnomah uud Columbia eountioi
and the Islands close thereto; In these
sections they wore flooded and daiiia
results. " .
