Last Sunday afternoon a party of
small boys were up on the hillside near
Sam Donaldson's, enjoying the beauti
ful weather and shooting at a mark with
a small pistol. While James Matlock, a
son of Thomas Matlock, a boy about ten
years of age, was having his turn with
the weapon a cartridge missed fire, and
after being snapped a few times, was
thought to be no good. While turning
the pistol around to examine it, the
slumbering cartridge went off, and the
boy was wounded. The ball tore through
bis tinkers, oonHiderably injuring some
of them, and then skimmed through one
of his knees, but fortunately not deep
euomrh to'iniure any bones. The boys
thought that little pistol had done dam
age enough for one day, and accordingly
they tired it deep into the depths of a
badger hole, where it is to be hoped it

The Dalles Sun says: We have again
been informed that many sheep owners
have objected to put their bucks into the

account of short grass in the pastures
and dry weather. This is suicidal policy.
Every man owning1 a'llSnd of sheep, no
matter how good his chance is, ought to
have a few acres of seeded alfalfa for his
bucks, that they may be in prime condi
tion. This condition of bucks has been
referred to by many sheep men this fall
