He bought them of James
Fulton last week, and intends killing

Within the last week a strange epi

to find out what remedy is required to
perfect a cure. It may become wide

A fire originating from a coal oil

Tbe old Lane blacksand mine, at
Randolph In Coos county, will soon
he in active operation again, says the
Coos Bay News. Twenty years ago
the Lane mine employed a number of
miners al good wages, and Randolph,
which has feltice become a deserted
village, was then a lively little town.
Coal mining is promising to become
an important Industry in Arizona.
In the northern part of the territory
extensive bodies of bituminous coal
are encountered north and east of the
Painted Desert region. Tliis coal
crops out in many places and at one
point has a thickness of twenty-three
The following notice, with 14 signa
tures to it, appeared in a Roseburg
paper: "We, the undersigned legal
voters of tbe county, do hereby give
notice to all owners of dogs used for
running deer lu and about the district
known as Soutt's valley, that we will
from now ou shoot all dogs which we
may discover running deer In or about
the said Scott's valley."
Tbe Oorvnllls Times says that Dead
river is the name of a slough that cuts
across from one part of the Willamette
river to another, among the islands
near Booneville, and In the years gone
by there was a rapid current from west
to east. Of late the water became slug
gish In Its movement, and a year ago
ceased to move at all. This winter it
runs quite rapidly from east to west.
During the year of 1896, the firm of

ever, that are taken out of the big
mines are sent direct to the mint.
The aggregate for Josephine county
will easily reach $500,000, and will be
larger in 1897.
A French soldier, in uniform, at
tracted much attention to himself ill
Grants Pass last week. He deserted at
Madagascar ou a ship bound for Aus
tralia, and two British officers paid his
way to 8au Francisco, whence he tried
the American plan of beating his way
on trains to The Dalles, where he has
a friend, scys the Grants Pass Courier.
He could not talk English, and would
have been in a bad way, bad he found
no other Frenchmen in Grants Pass.
The Importation into Benton county

A bushel of the seed wheat is given in
exchange lor a bushel of export wheat,

Sherman county is again without a
saloon. When an attempt was made
recently to have a saloon, Miss Mag
gie Eaton, of the W. C. T. U., took
her horses and carriage, and with
another white-rbboner, drove' 55 miles
In one day, and opened 45 gates, and
the next day, taking another woman,
drove 45 miles and opened 30 gates;
making 100 miles in two days, and the
opening and closing of 75 gates. By
doing this thejt found men employed
on their farms and secured a majority
of the signatures of the voters, and so
saved the county from a saloon, says
the Wasco News.
One of the old landmarks of The
Dalles was removed one day last week.
Jim Wesley, an Indian, who has
been in and about The Dalles since the
early pioneer days, passed over to the
happy bunting ground. He had at
tended a dance in the Indian village,
the night previous, and returned to
his cabin and retired about 5 o'clock.
Within an hour he was dead, death
baving come upon him suddenly,
though without any apparent cause.
Jim was a good, honest Indian, had al
ways been a staunch friend of the
whites, and was a perfect encyclopedia
of information concerning tbe early
history of The Dalles. He left a widow
and four children.
Hop dealers iu McMinnville are of
the opinion, after a careful canvass of
the Held, that not more than 10 per
cent of tlie yards of Oregon have been
plowed up. The higher prices prevail
ing during the latter part of the hop
seasou stimulated the growers to such
an extent that every yard that was left
tiupicked last year, and which was in
tended for destruction, will be culti
vated. This will have an effect on
next year's prices, undoubtedly, as, in
the opinion of hop men, at least 40 per
cent ot the hop acreage of Oregon
would have to be destroyed before the
market would be affected sufficiently
throughout tlie United Stales to make
a boom iu the price of American hops.
Gen. Harrison's Literary Work.
The success of ex-President Harrt-
8on s articles lu the Ladies' Home
Journal has been so pronounced that
three additional ones will he given.
These are li kely to prove the most in
teresting of all that Geueral Harrison
has written, in the sense that they will
be more personal. His first paper will
show what "A Day Witli the President
at His Desk" menus, giving glimpses
of the President in his private office.
His second article will deal with "The
Social Life of the President," which
will cover the President's obligatory
social duties and his part in great
State functions. The last article will
go into the President's domestic life
and portray "The Domestic Side of the
White House." All these articles will
be specially illustrated. This will be
the first time that an ex-President of
the United Slates has ever written of
his office and of his home. The articles
will a! 1 appear in early issues of The
Ladies' Home Journal.
Shooting Affray Near Corvallis.
A shooting affray occurred Friday
morning at the Kiger farm, near Cor
vallis, between Jack Irwin, an em
ploye ou tlie farm, nud Ed Thayer,
well known ia Corvallis. After some
words, Thayer drew a revolver on
Irwin, who ran into the house and
returned with a shotgun and revolver.
He ordered Thayer to put up his re
volver. Thayer pointed tlie revolver
directly at Irwin, who fired his shot
gun. Thayer returned the Are. Both
then fired a number of shots, with no
result, except a slight wound lp the
calf of Irwin's leg. Irwiu made com
plaint against Thayer in Justice Car
lisle's court. On hearing the testi
mony, which was not contradictory,
botb parties were bound over ill the
sum of $800 each. The ownership of a
bantam hen is s;iid to have been the
immediate cauxe of tlie shooting,

St. John (Kansas) News.
What an exaggeration ; what a whop
per. It has been disproved a thousand
times; it is a clean case of airy fancy.
It doesn't take money to run a news
paper. It can run without money. It
is a charitable institution, a begging
concern, a highway robber. B'Godfory,
a newspaper is the child of the air, a
creature of a dream. It can irn on and
on and on, when any other concern
would be In the hands of a receiver
and wound up with cobwebs in the
It takes wind to run a newspaper; it
takes gall to run a newspaper. It takes
a scintillating, acrobatio imagination,
and a half dozen white shirts and a
railroad pass to run a newspaper. But
money heavens to Betsy and six
hands round, whoever needed money
in conducting a newspaper! Kind
words are the medium of exchange
that do the business for the editor
Kind words and church social tickets.
When you see an editor with money,
watch him. He'll be paying his bills
and disgracing his profession. Never
give money to an editor. Make him
trade it out. He likes to swap.
Then when you die, after having
stood around for years and sneered at
the editor and his little jim crow pa
per, be sure and have your wife send
in for three extra copies by one of your
weeping children, and when f he reads
the generous and touching notice
about you, forewarn her to neglect to
send 15 cents to the editor. It would
overwhelm him, Money is a corrupt
thiug. The editor knows it mid what
he wants Is your heartfelt thanks.
Then he can thank the printers and
they can thank their grocers.
Take your job work to the job offices
and then come and ask for half rates
for the church notices. Get your lodge
letter beads and stationery printed out
of town, and then flood the editor
with beautiful thoughts in resolutions
of respect and card of thanks. They
make such spicy reading, and when
you pick it up filled with those mortu
ary articles, you are so proud of your
But money scorn the filthy thing.
Don't let the pure, innocent editor
know anything about it. Keep that
for sordid trades people who cht-rge
for their wares. The editor givos his
bounty away. Tbe Lord loves a cheer
ful giver. He'll take care of the editor.
Don't worry about the editor. He has
a charter from the state to act as door
mat for tlie community. He will get
the paper out somehow; and stand up
for tlie town and whoop It up for you
when you run for office, and lie about
your pigeon-toe daughter's tacky wed
ding, and blow about your big-footed
sons, when they get a $4 a week job,
and weep over your shrivelled soul
when it is released from your grasping
body, and a smile at your giddy wife's
second marriage. Don't worry about
the editor: he'll get on. The Lord
knows how but somehow. Emporia
N.B, When you have a long com.
uiunication to be published In the local
paper, always remember to wait until
the day tlie paper is printed before
you bring tlie "copy" to the office. It
is so pleasing to the editor and the
printers to be imposed upon by being
crowded with work ou "press-day.':
