Eugene Guard, The sun has now passed the three. quarter post In Its track, and the dayB and nights Saturdy were, equal, and tho equinoctial gale may be looked for at any time. The farmers have their harvest pretty generally secured, and people who have work on band which is liable to be. interrupted by rainy weather are milling operations as vigorourly as possible. Tire Athena Press says that a young fellow came to' town last week, and af-' ter putting up liis porse at ("room's liable, went to one of the saloons uud bucked the tiger $20 Worth, which was all the money he had.

The big barn belonging to the Indian institute at Cbeiuawa was burned with afl is enuleuts, excepting (lie four horses, atout lu o'clock Friday night.

There is a good water service at the institution, but the hy drant aiid hose for protecting the barn were stationed Inside, and enu,ld not bp reached owing to the fierceness of the flames.

E. H. Burnham Found Dead Near the PresbyteriarTCburell. ' Monday night about 1130 o'clock Carleton Sox and Clem Irylne were accompanying some youngladios homo from a reception at the College, when they discovered the body pf a man lying partly on the sidewalk uud part ly on the raised ground beside it at the southeast corner of the Unlttd Presby terian' church. Thinking It was A drunken man the young men notified Aightwatchnian Jones, who, accom panied by Dr. Hill and son who were just returning home from a professional visit, went, to the place and examined the man who was found to be dead. The body was taken to Nn. I's engine house. Judge Powell, acting ascoroner took it in charge and examined the man's pockets. The right pantaloon pocket was turned oul, some keys and a pocket knife were in Hie other pocket, a handkerchl f and $1.35 in a hip pocket, a , pair of eye glasses, a small mirror and a watch key .lii his vest pocket. There was no watch. He wore a brown suit of clotlies, nnd a Masonic pin was fastened to his vest. On his person were found pupersthow- ing his name to be E. H. Burnham, and that he formerly belonged to the Masonic- lodgj of Corvallis. iA bullet hole passed through his vest, which as slightly powder burned,! and hV shirt, just below his heart, awl ranging into his heart. About twelve feet back of where he was found was a revolver. About 11 o'clock several people in the vicinity heard a shot fired, and at least two think they heard some one cry for help. Mr. Walter iPeacook, who returned home about, that time from the College, heard a shot fired, and awhile after saw a couple of men run past the county. Jail. It Is doubt ful though if it had any connection with the shooting. Mr. Read on returning borne awhile before saw the man in the vicinity of the chur-h. He bad also been seen near there during the day and on Sunday. ' " '." ., Mr. Burnham came from Portland on r ridny and registered at the St. Charles. He bad formerly ' boarded with Mr. Giblin in CorvaliiS. There are two torsions of the matter, one that the man was murdered, the oilier that he committed suicide. The latter is probably the correct one. Burnham had lieeu despondent and had remai ked in the morning that he was about broke and didu't know what tie should do. Last yeur he worked in Chicago on the fair buildings, being A painter and paper banger, and bad contracted rheumatism, which was troubling him, as a chronic case of neuralgia. Several circumstances Indicated that he contemplated suicide, and It is a peculiar fact that just before being awakened and notified, Mr. Giblin had dreamed that he had done the act, the man's conduct evidently having mude the impression on his mind. H position when found showed. th.re had been no struggle; the revolver had evidently been thrown over his head as lie fell back, on the ground, and lie probably cried out as if for help. He probably had not been carrying a watch. The weight of evidence is de cidedly on the side of suicide, and In flicl there, is little doubt on the sub ject. " ' ' Burnham was nearly fifty .years of age, He wasslngle, ond (s well spoken of by Corvallis en who knew him in that city. , Tlie following is the verdict of the coroner's jury: We, tho coroner's Jury, summoned to inquire into the cause ( the death of E.
