As at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the award

owned by John Baker, says (lie Cor

considerable comment at the time, as
many thought it rather singular that
so heavy a piece of hardware should
bo thus carried away, but nothing
more was heard of the missing cauld
ron until last Friday when M. O. Hart
discovered It about three miles below
town. It was laying bottom side up
wards in two feet of water r.tul about
sixty feet from the shore. The inside
of the kettle was covered with a thick

This community is called upon to
lament tho death of one of its most
respected and honored citizens in the
passing away, at 4 o'clock, on Tues
day, the 27th, of James Thompson, who
had been violently ill for nearly a week
before his death from inflammation
of the bowels, acting on a constitution
materially impaired by Brights dis
ease. All that human skill could effect
was done to prolong his stay on this
side the silent shore, but without
avail. James Thompson was born in
Anderson county, Tennessee, August
8th, J847. Twenty-two yeara ago he
emigrated to Oregon and settled at
Onk Creek, near Albany, Linn county,
In loz he was married to Mihs H. 1,.
Cram, sister of Daniel Cram and Mrs.
Austin of tins city, and removed to
this county about nine years ago. For
more than a quarter of a century he
was a consistent and honored member
of tlio Missonary Baptist church, and
lor about tbroo years a member ol
Goldeudale lodge F. & A. M. He leaves
a wife and eight children, the eldest
a son of twenty-one and the youngest
about two years, besides an aged
mother, four brothers and two sisters
in Oregon. Mr. Thompson was highly
esteemed in his community as an
honorable Christian gentleman and a
citizen of sterling worth. He was
nominated nt the last Republican con
vention for commissioner of the third
district. He was buried Friday, the
28th instant, in the Odd Fellows'
Cemetery nt Goldendale, tbe funeral
services being ceudttcted by bis breth
eru of the Masonic fraternity.
Thieving in Brownsville.
Some time ago the general mer
chandise store of R. N. Thompson was
entered by burglars and the safe blown
open and so damaged that is was
necessary to send the door to Portland
for repairs. Fearing that another
visit of a like nature might be made,
Mr. Thompson hired Daniel Great
house as nightwatchman, All was
apparently going wall, when, on look
ing through his stock, Mr. Thompson
discovered that one full suit, an extra
pair of pants and a pair of shoes were
missing. Upon search the pants were
found at the tailor's, where Daniel
had taken them to have the buttons
cutoff. The next move, after recover
ing tbe pants, was lo lake out a search
warrant and look through the klepto
maniac's belongings, where the re
maining articles were found hidden in
a trunk. It. is perhaps unnessary to
state that Dan It 1 lost his job, and that
in this case the old saying of "seta
thief to catch a thief," was verified,
although it did not work exactly as
Daniel's employer hoped it would,
Commercial Affairs in Clatsop.
The Astoria Budget tells the follow
ing story of Clatsop commercial aftairs:
A farmer living near Olney brought to
town over one hundred boxes of apples
which be desired to sell to a grocery
man with whom he had been dealing
and whom he owed a bill of about
forty dollars. No; the groeeryinau
didn't want the apples. Finally the
farmer sold the apples to Mr. C. B.
Smith, the candy store man for 75
cents per box . Mr, Smith got rid of a
few boxes here and the rest he shipped
to Portland and sold for one dollar per
box. After the apples had resided in
a commission stall at Portland about
24 hours they were sold to the Astoria
Bond street grocery company and
shipped back here to be sold. What
the Astoria groceryman paid for them
we do not know, but It is not at all
probable that he bought them for the
same price the Portland dealer paid.

A Mitchell Affair.
News reached Prineville Thursday
evening of a stabbing affray that
occurred at Mitchell last Tuesday, says
the Review. It BeeuiS that W. L.
Campbell, a carpenter, was eugaged at
work on a new building near tho resi
dence of Dr. Houck. Henry Brown
rode in and dismounting, left his horse
standing ir'ar whero Campbell was at
work, and entered the physician's
residence on an errand. For some
reason Campbell ohirrupped to Brown's
horse and the animal started as if to
move away. From this the men eu
gaged in a quarrel that led to a fight.
Campbell ran at Brown to clinch hint,
and tbe latter used his pocket knife
with such effect that Campbell received
a wound about two inches deep and
nine long below one shoulder, a out
down the breast and a gash through
the upper lip. Campbell bled profuse
ly, but his wounds receiving prompt
attention will hardly result fatalh.
