on the sharp ends of a picket fence
with such force that he ruptured his

the lung into the flesh. It was at first

were bound over to appear before the

$100. Mrs. Hamilton could have got
bonds, but as John was inclined to be

The boys claim to lie only 18 and 14
years old, but look to be, older. They

. TWO TAST WALKERS,
The Poitlaiid Telegram gives a long
account of the recent 800 mile walk
.1. Thorburn Ross, secretary of the
Title Guarantee and Trust Co, and
Wallace MoCamant, mention of which
was made in the Exprkss. They
were gone sixteen days, walking '300
miles in teu days, making at high as
43 miles In one day, going from Belk
nap to Fliidly mostly by torchlight.
Below we give the account of thei trip
from -Lebanon to the Metoles:
Leaving Lebanon on foot, Ihey
passed through. Waterloo, stopping
to view and drink from the fine soda
spring there. They followed the Cas
cade mountains and Willamette valley
wagon road most of the way up the
Bantlam to Bweet Home and epeut a
night at Canyon creek ranch. This Is
the abode of the McKinnons, a noted
hunting family. A 12-year-old boy in
the family killed bis first bare at the
the age of 8, and another of the boys
has already killed 60 bears, to say
nothing of deer Innumerable. It was
about here that they commenced to
meet the mountain trout, and during
next two weeks trout was a staple
article of food.
From here they went to Upper Soda,
aud thenoe to the Mountain House,
about 14 miles from McKinno's, where
they spent the night, leaving the
next morning for Fish lake.
They climbed the longascentknown
as the Seven-Mile bill, and after a bard
walk of 16 miles reached Fish Lake.
The lake is remarkable for its complete
disappearance In a short space of time
during the summer season. One mau
told Mr. Ros that he had passed Fish
Lake one morning when it was filled
with water, and returning that even
ing bad found it drained entirely aud
a flue grass field. This story is pro
duced without verification, but it is a
fact that within two or three days, at
frequent times, the lake bas been en
tirely drained of water.
After a few hours' rest they proceed
ed to Clear Lake, a very wonderful
body of water. Its water is clear as
crystal, and the lake is now where
there was formerly a fertile valley
covered with a thick forest, The out
let to this valley bas evidently been
dammed by molten lava flowing
around it, and making a deep embank
ment, within which the lake was
formed. Through the clear water can
be seen the great forest still standing
at Its bottom, and as one rows lu a
boat over the lake he Is tempted to put
out his oar and touch the tops of the
trees, which to the eye appears possi
ble. It is not possible, however, as the
water covers their tops many feet deep.
The waters of the lake are cold as ice
and well stocked with large trout.
The following morning they started
for the Metoles, climbing the long hill
known as Sand Mountain, from Clear
Lake to Rig Lake- This brought them
to the summit of the Cascades. From
Big Lake a magnificent view was had
of a number of snow-clad mountain
peaks, including Three Fingered Jack,
an imposing mountain taking its name
from the character of Its surface,- se
sembllng three fingers. Mount Jeffer
son was among others.
The Pope's House,
The evangelist, Nunn, wilt lecture
tonight at the Baptist church on "The
Pope's House." He bas with him a lime
light stereopticau which produces the
most powerful light known, and to
night you can view the Pope's House
as it really is, and see the greatest
palaces on earth, St. Peter's church,
the Vatican, and nearly 100 other views
fully described as they are presented.
Last night the evangelist preached on
the life of Christ, and Illustrated with
the stereoptican, which made the ser
mon very interesting.
The Soda Springs,
There Is no truth In the report that
the water at Lower Soda has been poi
soned. A few cases of sickness have
appeared among the hundreds who
have been camping there. There Is no
one along the route who would be
guilty of poisoning the waters of any
spring. They are all polite and gen
tlemanly people. Everything possible
in done at the springs for the comfort
of the campers, fionie people would

SAW KILL BURNED
Mr M. rArimin of tile firm of Bcrri-
gan ft Humphrey was lu town yester
day and gave us the following particu
lars In regard to the burning of their
saw mill which was located about
fourteen miles from this plaoe on
Hamilton Creek. He said the fire
was discovered about 2 o'clock Sun
day morning, August 12th, and when
first seen was burning over the planer
and was undoubtedly the work of an
Incendiary as there had not been any
fire in the engine for two days. Every
thing was a total loss except the
holler and engine whhh was saved.
They estimate their loss at $0000. No
He said that they had been, running
about two and one-half months this
year and had been doing a good busi
ness. On Thursday night following
an attempt was made to bum their
barn also, but as the fire was discover
ed soon after being set it was put out
before much damage was done.
That Tidal Wave.
There has been considerable idle
talk about Prof. Falb's prediction that
a huge tidal wavo will visit this coast,
between. Aug. 17 and Aug. 80, to be 60
feet higb, and that a great submarine
earthquake submerge New York city,
disconnect the peninsula of Florida
from the mainland and cause It ; to
sink, make an island of California and
produce a tidal wove along the North
Pacific coast There is no danger of
these predictions being fulfilled. If
the conjunction of certain planets
could ever produce such a result by at
traction or otherwise there Is sufficient
room In the vaaty deep for such a
wave to exhaust itself without piling
up such a tidal wave as predicted;
which would submerge Yaquina and
other seaside esorts of the Northwest.
Sensible people will take things as
they come, and rely upon Nature's
laws to keep things going in spite of
Prof. Falh's awful prediction.
Coming this Way
'A 'petrified woman' was on ex
hibition in this city last week. The
exhibitor said the figure had been
found in Mexico, but the features
were not Mexican or Indian, but
Caucassian. The affair had evidently
baen manufactured by casting from a
mould produced by moist clay , in
which a living woman had remained
lougenogh to have a perfect mould
of her nude figure made, The an
atomy was perfectly formed of sand
aud cement and weighed 540 pounds.
The owner was traveling by team
from town to town and his figure will
probably net him a good living at 10
cents a head." Grants Paso , Courier.
