Robert Steel, near Airlie, Polk county,
raised this season 4000 bushels of barley
011 30 acres of ground, or 133 bushels
per a;re, says the Corvallis Times. The
grain was so heavy that but half a
swath could be cut at a round, and two
weeks were spent in cutting the 30-acre
field.. The crop was grown on beaver
dam laud, and is annually sold to
Henry Weinhard, the brewer.

the Fair this year will bo one of the
most successful ones if not the most
successful ever held in the State.
The premium lists have been thorough
ly revised for this meeting, many new
and attractive features have been add
ed. Everything has been modernized
the old Ideas having been consigned
to the archives, 1 he new grand stand
Is eommodious. The new regulation
track Is the fastest on the coast, aud
some of the best horses In the West
will be in attendance. The pavilion
will be filled as never before, and A
new machinery hall has had to be
constructed to accommodate the large
number of exhibitors. This year one

had better heed our little voice and

Friend "Agaiuus," in the Democrat,

to advance an opinion unasked, but
verily believe "Againus" lives nr near
the town of Sodaville. His description
of Waterloo Is truly touching, especial
ly wherein he refers to the "hugging
set to music." In this alone he gives
US prestige over Soda. Thanks, dear
friend, for your kindness, the girls say
those "outers" are a class hard to satis
fy with hugging. They just seem to
hunt around for opportunities while
here to show off their accomplishments
In that line, hence the tri-weekly hugs
to satisfy the pressing demand. The
waters of this spring cannot cure bile
complaints, hence my friend on outiug

Mount and descend upon this harmless

us your eulogies and the prayers of at
least ftue will amply repay you for
your kindness, but go to Soda and do
your "hugging" without music, unless
it be attended with a chirarviri crowd
as on a former oooaslon, Mammon.

FEARFUL FOREST, FIRES,
Three Northwest State In Flames
Hundreds of Lives Loat and Millions
of Dollars of Property Destroye d
Greater than ever before known, I
the loss by forest fires in the North
west. Whole towns are swept from the
face of the earth, while the surround,
ing country Isone blackened, smoking,
lifeless pralrici with the charred bod
ies of human beings and Innumerable
horses and cattle to be seen everywhere.
Railroad trains with their precious
lives and costly freight have been con.
siiiued. Lakes and rivers afforded but
scant protection, being soon lapped up
by livid tongues of fire. Immense
forests have fallen amid fire and smoke,
with the sound of artillery. The heav
ens have been obscured for days by a
dense pull of smoke, and 'the earth,
with its inhabitants, is being literally
burned up. TBe scene is appalling.
Below we give the number of deaths
already reported, with the vivid (le-
scriptiou f the experience of a train-
load of passengers:
"Dr. W. H'. Crary, of St, Paul, who
was on Engineer Root's train which'
fan to Hinckley, oue of the town
burned during the appalling forest m e,
and bucked Ins train Up to a mud lake,
thus saving the lives of many people,
tells of the incident:
"The woods oil either side were lash
ed by a fierce wind, blowing 80 miles
au hour. On through this weird suene
the limited sped, tiie situation growing
more alarming at every mile. As the
train reached Hinckley it was discov
ered that the fire reached the railroad
but 011 it' sped, the engineer hoping to
pass Hinckley in time to escape the '
danger. It was not uutil the train had
come within a mile of Hinckley that
the engineer discovered that his train
was turning aud that It would be Im
possible to pass. The bridge had al
ready been consumed, together ith
I lie mills and homes' of Hinckley.
Here the train was met by a hundred
or more fugitives from the burning
town. Mothers carried in their arms
small children, others hanging to their
mothers' skirts. Some carried a few
household goods aud others were cry
ing and moaning on aconuut of losses
already sustained. Many were so near
ly exhausted they could scarcely board
"Nearer and nearer the flames were
approaching, and finally the engi
neer was compelled to reverse his
lever and run baok, leaving behind
scores of unfortunate ones who had
not been able to reach the train, their
only available means of escape, Those
on board could see many of them sink
to the grouud exhausted aud overcome
by the terrible heat, never again to
rise. Many came ruuuing across the
fields from small settlements, hoping
to escape on the train, but only disap
pointment and death awaited them.
"On rushed the trail) through the
fiivry hot breath of pursuing flames,
for a stop would have been fatal to all '
on board. As the weary passengers
retraced their steps Suuday morning,
some afoot aud others on handcars,
they found along the side of the track .
and iu the fields the charred remains
of those poor unfortunates. In four
miles 34 bodies were found, some
burned beyond recognition aud others
uuscarred, having died from su (loca
tion. "It was a four-mile run baok to
Skunk lake, which la little belter
than a mud-hole, the mud and water
covering no more than an acre. The
train had gone only a short distance
before It was surrounded by the devour
ing flames. Hot blasts struck the
coaches, setting them on fire in places
am', breaking the windows on both
sides. The baggage car was soon a
mass of flames, which streamed back
over the engine, tender and train, set
ting fire to the engineer's elothes and
scorching his face and hands, .
either side of the engineer there was a
stream of flume, but never fur au in
stant did Engineer Root flinch. He
whs apparently certain ot death, but
could he hold out for lour miles the
passengers might possibly escape. It
be desertrd his post it would be death
to all on board, Baok of him stood his
trusty Hitman, who occasionally
poured water upon bliu. . When tne
heat became unbearable for the fire
man he took a dip Into the water tank,
from which he drew the supply for the
engineer's shower bath."
