0. M Goodman, an employe of the
Victory placer mine about seven miles
north of Glendale, was stung by a
scorpion on the third finger of the
right hand last Thursday morning,
says the Grant's Pass Courier. Good
man was engaged in blasting out
some stumps, and took hold of the
insect which stung him severely. Be
fore he could reach the camp, about a
quarter of a mile away, his arm was
badly swoleu, and at last accounts the
sting was regarded as a possibly fatal
one. Dr. Miller, of Roseburg, was at
once telegraphed for, and a telegram
was also sent to the injured man's
wife in Kansas. Goodman is about
years of age, and of a strong con
stitution, which favors recovery. The
scorpiou was captured, and measured
five and a half inches in length, an
unusually large one.

deer hanging up in the house, during
the close season, and swore out a com
plaint. . The examination took place
.yesterday in: Justice Powell's office
aud the evidence showed completely
different from the oath of the proscut

any deer but had never hunted any,

taken from the carcass of a deer given
to him last October, killed by a hunter
in the open season,' The law should

It is Judge Steams. .; '
Lincoln county is no longer, an
orphan as far as eounty judge is con
corned. After due deliberation of
nearly a month, Gov. Lord finally
made a selection for the officeof county
judge from tbe list of the numerous
applicants for that position. A special
to the Leader informs us that J. O.
Stearns, of Waldport, has been ap
poluted to fill the vacaucy caused by
the death of Judge Burt.
Judge Stearns has been a resident of
Alsea Bay for a number of years. Hs
is the recognized republican leader of
that part of the county. His first ap
pearance In politics was in 1892, befora
the couuty was divided, when be ran
for the 'legislature aud was defeated by
S. T. Jeffreys, by a smalt majority.
In 1893i..wlien the county was divided,
he wasjappoluted.county commissioner
by Goy,,,Pe,ui!oyer, and served a littlo
over a year In that capacity. In 1891
lie was'ur.-ed'by many republicans to
become a candidate for county judge,
aud be refused to allow his name to be
used, At the last republican county
convention he was an aspirant for the
nomination for county clerk, but was
defeated In the nomination by Capt,
Robertson, His appointment as county
judge will hold until the first of July,
Geo, M. Miller, of this city, shipped
17 Chinese pheasants to his brother,
Jdtiqulu Miller, th poet of the Sierras
tt Oakland, California. Mr. Miller Is
securing the birds for propagating
purposes and will free them on his
farm near Oakland. The birds arj
about half grown . and a simple
method was practiced in their capture.
They were run down by a man on a
horse. It is saldrthat when frightened
the young birds will rise and fly to the
greatest distance that their strength
will oarry them. They must then rest
quite a bit before regaining sufficient
strength to fly again. If "spotted"
by.a ruau on horseback he can persuo
them at full speed, and, by jumping
off his horse, catch them, as they will
not try to fly uutil they have rested.
