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 oorrrsgoideiit, Mc0pts'S)lir)8t.j 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.

White Is in from tbe San tiatu mines and reports times of un ceasing activity there. Tbe Lawler mines and stamp mill employ about 60 men, and the mill is in constant action. A very rich deposit has been struck In One of the tunnels being run, assaying from $60 to $80 per ton. The work being done on the Albany mine had also struck rlcii eroppiugs in portions of the claim not before prospected. The mining camp is a busy place and the outlook for the season's work is extremely bright. 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.

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.
