the yield is not up expectations, lllteiy
on account of the ravages of the aphis,

The Astorlan has an amusing ac
count of tho landing of a bull near
Knappton, trom the steamer Eclipse
which was new and novel in Us way,
und doubtless was enjoyed by the bo
Vine. On reaching the desired spot
tlie blowing of several whistles brought
two men in a skill' out to tile steamer,
some distance from laud. To the nil.
initiated mind Ihe question arose as to
the lack of capacity of the skill lo
hold the animal. But meu who knew
their business were in charge. A rope
was thrown lo the uieu in Ihe skill',
attached to the horns of the bull, and
by leading tlie animal to the side of
tlie steamer, a dextrous and concen
trated effort of the crew landed the
animal overboard in about twelve feet
of water. It took otily a few moments
fur his lorshlp to appear at the surface
of the water, blowing like a porpoise,
with liis tail slightly elevated in tlie
air, heading for the shore and towing
the boat along at a rapid rate.
The thirsty still continue to arrive.

Saturday evening the spring was
visited by Ihe Lebanon delegation
including those immaculate gents, the
I wo Georges. The waters in the spring
were unusually strong; so was their
breath tojudge from their language.
The attendance at the several places
of worship Sunday were small. One
preacher had I wo hearers, und the
samts have ceased to draw a full lent.
Flies und fleas play an important part

Some one is thinking strongly of
going into the harness business. He
has begun operations by slicing har

gentleman Is known and when he
comes once more to enter bis trade he
will be received with open doors-at

Friday night another dance was
given; it came up to our expectations,
tlie same old gang of hoodlums were
there, Some came in a lumber wagou
and were supplied with rocks to throw
upon the houses of those who had the
temerity to try to sleep while a Water
loo dance was in progress. Come
again boys we dote on your little favors.
Saturday and Sunday nights are set
apart for those who believe in nothing
hut having a good time. Saturday
night two young bloods tilled up with
stagger juice and then took in the
Mormon camp. Not being able to
create any discord there they adjourn
ed to the north end of town where one
fell in with the strong arm of the law
and murshui. The town is some seyeu
dollars better off than before his visit.
The other escaped as his red hair was
mistaken for a brush Are.
There was once a man who desired
to have the streets of Waterloo sprink
led. Dotations poured, (n and one
sprinkler was hlliit on the plan of

building by being two stories high.
O.'ie application ouly was applied last
year and this year the character 0 tells
the tale. Dust is 2J feet deep 011 the
level in the town-and in a few of the
most dangerous places bridges have
been built. Auy one Heeding a bin
that will hold some 1,500 bushels of
giain would do well to purchase the
sprinkltr. No team can be found that
can draw the empty box from tlie
river to tlie streets. Mr. Clark was
going tu lease it to open a restaurant
in, but could not get a bonus from the
citizens. 1). O. Little.
Bad Outlook for Wool.
l.x-uovenor r. Moody was in
Portland Wednesday, en route to The
Dalles from a visit with his family ut
Salem. The govelior Is Ihe largest in

his wurehotise at Tlie Dulleu handle a

just passed congress will ruin the wool
Interest of this slute. With no protect
ion for this immense industry. Ana.
truliu and other foreign ooutitriwi will
flood American markets, unci there is
no possible way to maintain a market
price sufficient to warrant wool pro
duction. Tlie average annual output of wool
in Oregon, the govenor says, Is about.
20,(Kiu,uoo pounds. The Dalles handl
ing about oue-ttai'ter. The market
price t'jero at this lime is from 7 to 9
cents, the lowest ever known. Ever
since Ihe advent of the domestic ad
ministration, however, freo trade prices,
have prevailed, and the producer in
consequence bus Buffered, severely.
Tliia uncertainty has now developed
into 11 painful reality, and it seems
easy to predict tile future uf what has
been one ot Oregon's greatest industries
ond pointed to with pride by every
resident in the stale.
Governor Moody is eutnusiustic
over the handsome yield of grain east
of tlie mountains, which to a certain
degree, may compensate for tlie dem

Jos Clayton, who is employed on
tlie McKenzie stock farm, met with a
rather novel and exciting experience
last evening. He had been attending
church in Eugene and started home in
his buggy ubout 10 o'clock. When at
Ihe Judklus point three men came
upon b in, one getting hold of the
horses' bits, while the others, one on
each side of tbe buggy, requested him
alight. Cluyton lost uo time iu doing
so, und was without ceremony relieved
of $:v-K al' the money in his possession,
a iir of gold cuff buttons aud a
pocket knife. The meu then warned
(.'lay ton to go ahead, not look back
nor return, which admonition he fol
lowed. We did not leuru if be could
give a description of tbe rubbers.
