While crossing the bridge at Meadow

and team went down with a crash.
John Bateman and Neis Nelson were
under the bridge, bailing out a boat.
Wbeu they heard the crash, both
jumped overboard and saved them
selves, and It Is well they did, for
their boat was smashed into frag
ments. The destruction to the boat
and damage to the bridge were the
only serious results, the team and
load being pulled out all right, and
the men escaped without a scratch.

well he did so, for when he got in the

himself batleling with the current.

A groat many of our readers In Llni:
county like to take the Weekly Oregon
Ian. We have made arrangements
whereby we can furnish It ataredii"
tlon from the regular price to those
who want both the Exi'rkss and th
Oregonlan. The regular price of t.ie
Oregonian is $1.50 per year, and of tl.
Exprbss $1.60 when In advance. W'c
will furnish both f ir $2. per year iu
advance, a saving of one dollar to th
subscriber. The Oregonian gives al'
the general news of the country once :
week, and the Exprkss gives all to
local news once a week, which will
make a moat excellent nes service
for the moderate sum of $2. per yen'
Those who are at present Bubscrlhcm
of the Express must pay iu all arrear
ages and one year in advance to obtain
h is special price.
Should be Extended.
The railroad commissioners in their
reviews of the conditions of the dif
ferent Oregon roads, says of the 0. C.
& E. among other things: "The road
is In very fair condition, aud its equip
ment is ample for the service required.
The operating expenses, wbicb include
the maintenance of way, exceed seven
thousand dollars in gross earnings, so
that there is no return In sight for the
purchasers, even ot. their first invest
ment. This road must be extended
before it can be expected to pay; but
where? The most promising field
seems to be over the Cascade moun
tains to the region of the Deschutes
Bnd Crooked rivers, and perhaps
finally to an Eastern connection.
Look Out for Them,
It Is reported that a party of fakirs
are working the towns of the Wil
lamette valley on the old, time-worn
racket of enlarging family photos at
$1 50 apiece, demanding, and invari
ably getting, the preliminary advance
of fifty cents, the balance to be paid
when the "company's studio car
reaches here just after the holidays."
The chance for humbug is as great as
ever and finds about as many victims
who will wait many moons ere that
"studio oar" arrives. The safest plan
Is to buy pictures aud frames of local
dealers, and steer clear of those fakirs.
In order to put the Express iu the
homes of many who are not now tak
ing it, we have decided to offer it from
now until March 1, 1897, for only 25
cents. If you are not taking the Ex
press already, take advantage of this
offer aud subcribe at once, aud if you
are already a subscriber, send it to

Lynx Killed by Two Boys.
There were two small boys In Ben
ton county whose hair stood on end at
the sight they met the other day, says
the Coryallis Times. They were hunt- .
lug In the vicinity of Sulphur Springs,
on Soap creek. Their dogs treed u
varmint. When the boys came up,
the animal was apparently 10 feet from
the ground and was glaring at the
dogs. His head and body together
were four feet long aud he looked
awfully tall to Larence Stovall, of
Corvallis, and Delbert Baker of Wells,
both aged about 14. The Baker boy
carried a rifle and the other a single
barreled shotgun. The first took a
shot at the varmint and wounded him
in the hams. Out of the tree be jumped
and the dogs tackled him, but ho
slapped them over quicker than a
wiuk, and then made for the Stovall
boy. "You bet I was scared, when I
saw him coming," said the boy "but
I knew the time had come when I had
to shoot; so I raised my gun and blazed
away. He was then in six feet of me,
with his mouth wide open and his
eyes shining like balls of fire." The
tine birdshbt took effect, and the
animal halted. He had been blinded
in both eyes, and he ran about aim
lessly. As he drew near the, Bal; r
boy, the lad fired again and the ugly
varmiut was dead. It was a tussled
eared lynx, and was a huge one us thu
skin now hi possession of the boys
