Some of the Ghost's Statements re Cor
. rected by McGinty Himself. .?
'-" j r.-tirt i
To t Editor r fmjSxniwniteS $
Will you kindly grant me space in
your, columns to correct a few of the
statements juadv by your Waterloo
He stales that Joseph Mlsnec was
ai rested on suspicion, the suspicion
not .'proven, tried, found guilty, fined
$15 and costs, etc., etc. ;
The above statement, and in fact,
the majority of his communications
to your paper In which be. has assailed
the characters and motives of the best
citizens of Waterloo from time to time,
are simply a tissue of malicious lies.
Mr., Misner was arrested for violating
a town ordinance, legally tried, found
guilty and fined as the recorder's
docket will "show. " He was given two
days lime in which to employ an attor
ney to defend his ease, but failed to
avail himself cf the opportunity, as he
had perfect confidence in Mr. Rice's
legal ability to clear him of any oharge,
Losing his case so aroused his ire that
he Immediately invoked the aid of
McGiuty's Ghost who seut In a com
munication to your paper, charging
the recorder, attorney aud town coun
cil as being a set of ignorant fools.
Why you have allowed uim to use
your paper as a weapon to vent his
spleen upon any of our citizens be
happens to take a dislike to, is a ques
tion. You surely cannot expect to
gain the good will and patronage of
this town by such a course. When
ever any one of us has tbe temerity to
do something that don't suit him, he
proceeds to roast us in tbe next issue
of your paper, and when asked if be
wrote (lie article, simply lies out of it.
ft is strongly suspected here that
this is the same slippery ghost that
vanished so suddenly from Southern
Oregon, leaving creditors to mourn his
departure, and also slipped through
tbe fingers of a certain Salem physician
while be was trying to collect his pay
for attending him through a serious
llluesseome years ago."
At any rale this ghost is a cowardly
sneak that dare not come out openly
and make these charges, but chooses
to .attacs in the dark, by malicious
insinuations aud slurs about their mo
tfves and characters, people that scorn
both him and his methods.
Of late he has taken a pious turn aud
attends church and Bahbatt) soboo,
sociables, etc., but judging from the
past, about the first fine Sunday we
have he will shed his wiugs, grab bis
fish pole and hie himself away to gather
in another batch of suckers.
Our people don't particularly object
to his abuse. We are used to it, and
know he inherited that disposition, but
they do object to having It published
abroad, as it has a tendency to Injure
the reputation of our towu. A man
like him, burdened with all the brains
aud intelligence of an entire commun
ity, when so disposed, can do us an
irreparable injury if you continue to
furnish printer's iuk for him free ot
charge. ' This is from

How a Fathful Dog Saved a Family
From Being Burned to Death.
. (From the AlbAny ncrald, Saturday, May 2.)
Mr. H. H. White Is in from tbe San

Mr. White saya the foreman of the
day shift at the Lawler mines, Mr.
Mears, and hi wife had a narrow
escape from being burned to death a
few nights ago. Mrs. Mears, who Is
alone iu the house a good portion of
the day, has made a great pet of a dog,
which is allowed to sleep In the bouse,
and the dog became very much at
tached to her. A few nights sinoe Mr.
Mears upon retiring spread his wet
clothing in front of the fire aud the
household retired. They occupied
rooms baok of the sitting room with no
egress save through the single door.
In the night Mrs. Mears was awakened
by the dog tugging at the bedclothes.
She slapped the dog and tried to drive
him away, but the faithful canine
scratched and pulled at tbe bed iu auct)
an excited, way .that she arose, and
following the dog Into the aittingroom
found that tbe clothes bad Ignited and
had set the house on fire.' In a few
moments mora they would have been
imprisoned wd duobtless burned to
death. Mr. Mears hastened to help
put out the fire, which was soon ex
tinguished without much loss. That
dog now Uvea on tenderloin.,
A Peculiar Accident.
A curious accident was one thatover
tookiflBS Nona Smith Friday after
noon. 'She was riding a btcyole up the
walk leadlug to the college, when
suddenly a friend behind her noticed
the wheel sway, aud the rider fall.
Miss Nona quick ly plcked!herseirup,re
mounted tbe wheel andjrode to the dor
mitory. There her friends noticed that
she was apparently out of her head,
and that there were bruises about her
temple and chin. She was brought to
the Smith home, and until the next
afternoon her conversation was flighty,
She was unable then and Isstiil power
less to remember anything about her
fall, or anything of the incidents Im
mediately before or after it, a condition
in which William Sklpton found him
self after a fall from a horse a year or
so ago. It is supposed that while
riding along she became dizzy and
that the fall accouuta for the mental
trouble. Corvallis Times. .
i A Petrified Skeleton,
Woods Carter, while digging a well
at his place at Monument lat week,
disclosed a curiosity 30 feet under the
ground. It was no more than the
petrified skeleton of an animal about
the size of a coyote or a fo. The
skeleton was discovered in solid rock,
where the animal bad probably been
encased centuries ago. The only por
tion of the skeleton that is a rare curi
osity is the petrified brain of the
animal. By being exposed to the
minerals of the earth, tbe skull had
decayed, but each lobe of the brain s
preserved, and is as qatnrai In appear?
ance as if it had Just beeu taken from
the skull of the animal. Mr, Carter
was able to find the major portion of
the animal, and has several nice sam
ples of the petrified skeleton. Long
