Hugh Worthington, who spent the winter with relatives in Lexington, re turned to his home last Tuesday morn ing. During his stay Hugh made many friends among the young people, who hope for his return. Owing to washouts, landslides and the accident of last Sunday, no mail has been received here from Portland or San Francisco since last Friday. Tele graphic communication has also been broken during most of the time. Jacob Bortzer, of Shelby, was in Lex ington last Tuesday. He says that the fall-Bown grain in bis neighborhood came up before the snow fell and is now well advanced and in a flourishing corp dition. He will plant some Egyptian corn this season. During the present favorable weather no time is being wasted by those farm ers who mean business. Plowing has been commenced in earnest, for which the ground is now in the best possible condition, except in spots on old ground where it is yet too sou. Last Monday, while the children of S. White, at Saddle, wore playing in the door van), his nino-vear-olu boy acci dentally struck the little girl's right band with the blade of an aw, cutting quite a gash. The little one was brought to Lexington and the wound dressed In almost the exact center of Morrow county, surrounded by a farming region, occupying one of the finest town Bites in eastern Oregon, and with nattering pros peuts lor the future, Lexington is now one of the best points in which a usi ness man of energy and foresigti establish himself. N. B. Williams, of Jordan Fork, was in town yesterday, lie says tall-sown grain in his neighborhood is looking well, and be has yet to learn of any that was injured by the winter. He has even seen oats that have volunteered this sea son, and when oats endure the winter there need be little fear for the wheat. Death of Harrison Russell. Harrison Russell died last Sunday at his borne near Lexington. He was a good neighbor, husband and father, and his death will be regretted by a large circle of friends. The funeral took place last Monday from the Lexington church. As the deceased was a member of the United States army during the civil war. delegations from Rawlins post, G. A. R. nnil i '..mtniiv ll nf this iiliici! attended and the soldier's parting salute was tired over the grave. Seedless Watermelons.

DEATH AND DESTRUCTION A Repair Train Plunges Through a High Bridge. FOURTEEN MEN CO DOWN TO DEATH. Railroad Communication Suspended Be tweeen The Dalles and Portland. A terrible accident occurred last Sun day on the Union Pacific, between Bon neville and Portland, the particulars of w hich as near as can bo learned from available sources of information are as follows : A number of landslides, caused by the melting snow, had occurred along the line, and a work train was repairing the breaks and pushing toward Port land. Near Bonneville, which is oppo site the Cascades, there was a trestle about seventy feet high spanning a trib utary of the Columbia river. Under mined by the rushing waters, the bridge was at that moment a bridge in name only, though remaining in place and ap parently safe. Toward this death-trap approached the ropair train, consisting of engine No. (( with its tender, a caboose and three work cars and occupied by workmen, all unsuspicious of the fate awaiting them. The scene of death and destruction that followed need not be described. It is sufficient to say that the entire train made the fearful plunge and that fourteen men were either in stantly killed or fatally wounded, be sides several others seriously injured. The accident was seen by a man some distance in the rear of the train, who ran to Bonuovillo and informed the op erator at that place. Portland was im mediately called upon for assistance and a wrecking train sent to the scene. The track is described as being in an impassable condition for at least twenty miles, landslides and washouts being numerous and destructive. At present it is not known how long it will take to make the necessary repairs so that traffic may be resumed. It is probable that river steamers will bo temporarily employed below The Dalles. The Co lumbia and its tributaries are rapidly rising, and it is feared that still further damage will occur. FAIRVIEW. For the Bcdokt. Straw is selling at $3 per ton on Eight Mile. Win. Huguewood lias been quite sick during the past week. Several Fairview neighbors are dig ging wells this winter. The debating society meets every Sat urday night witli a good attendance. Stella, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Downing, aged about nine months, died on January 2Iid. S. N. Warfield and Wes. McNabb are feeding their stock at Young's springs, on Eight Mile. Stock is wintering well, considering the shortness of grass. So far but few have died in this vicinity. J. P. Rhea is stall feeding quite a number of four and tive-year-old steers for the early spring market. Charles Chrisman and S. N. Warfield are proud ana happy papas, being the fathers of recently born sons. Wm. Iiecket is tbo boss hunter of this section. Lately in a match hunt he brought in over thirty rabbit scalps.

Revs. Keithly Bales and Frank Ad- kins have been holding union meetings at Liberty Bchool house, which have been well attended. Chinook. Faikview, January 31, 18'.K. SHIL0H DISTRICT. For the Budget. The influenza has about lost its grip in this neighborhood. A hivu time was had at the dance at S. P. Haney's on Friday night last. The chinook has done its work in good shape, and several plows started to-day Sid Jones started two plows to-day, and Joseph Dollarhido will start two to-morrow. The w heat crop was not damaged by the freeze in this section, as far as can be ascertained. Several of the boys have secured roller skates and amuse themselves in the Shiloli school house. Jeorge Caviness has struck a good water on bis ranch ut a depth of sixteen or eighteen feet. Let the good work go on, and in a few years every ranch on the bunehgrass will have a gooil well. . While Joseph Dollarhide was on a visit to French liiirrougbs, on Rhea creek, one night last week, his dog treed something. L'pon investigation it proved to be a wild cat. Mr. Burroughs shot and killed the animal, which weighed 2" pounds. Mr. Dollarhi'le's dog seems fond of cat hunting, for he did not return home until after he had treed a second and larger wildcat, w hich was also killed, and w eighed 37 pounds. O.AKK. Shii-oii, February 3, Ih'JO. Palmer Cox. Palmer Cox, the famous "brownie" artist, whose contributions to .S'f. Xicho tan and other juvenile periodicals are so eagerly watched for by hundreds of thousands of youngsters, and elders as well, has introduced another small world of odd, bright characters, w hich he calls the "grcenics," and takes them for a jaunt around the world in search of strange adventures.

Douglas' last Saturday night and enjoyed a very pleasant evening. Now that the snow has disappeared, the merry sleigh-nuers have to come down to business. The poor bnncbgrass farmers are now overhauling their old harness, prepara tory for spring work. Fred Hegg, who is at Fairhaven, in Washington, writes back that there is no place like bunehgrass. Some are doing considerable studying in this part of the country, preparatory lor the teachers examination. Ed. Holloway has parked several loads of ice in his cave, lie says it is a good way to rclrigerate potatoes. Sunday school is held at the Saddle school house each Sabbath, but we have not seen a preacher this winter. The wheat is not frozen out, and most every tarmer is preparing to turn over lots ot soil. Uurruli lor bunehgrass! Saddle Stihkl'P, Saddle, January 20, IK90. I0NE ITEMS. For the Bcduet. As lone lias not been represented in the Ri'DUE'r lor somo time, I send few items : Everybody is preparing to commence plowing, expecting a bounteous harvest this year. School will commence hero next Mon day, with a gentleman from Lone Rock as teacher. "La grippe" has at last left us and gone Itirthcr on, and we bear of it no more. It has our thanks for not taking anyone with it. The masquerado ball to take place here on the night of February 7th has created considerable interest all over the neighborhood, and many are coming from far and near. The dance hull is one of the largest in the county and there w ill be plenty of room for every body and a jolly time. The chinook has coma, the ground is bare and unfrozen and evorybody wears a broad smile on his phiz. The snow melted gradually and soaked into the ground, which gives the farmers more encouragement than over, as the ground was frozen very deep and it was feared the snow would mult and run oil'.

WHAT IS WHITE DOURA? IT IS COMMONLY CALLED EGYPTIAN CORN WHICH IS A SUPERIOR FORAGE PLANT AND PRODUCES A HEAVY YIELD OF GRAIN. A FEW FARMKKS IN MORUOW COUNTY have tried it and arc more than satisfied with the results oblaiued. Try it and you will never be without it. All the seedsunm sneak highly of it. Here is what two of Ihu best known pay about it: The yield of grain is very great; and cooked when the kernels are not fully ripe, like green corn, it has the flavor of chestnuts; or after fully ripe, cooked like riee, or ground into Hue Hour or meal, and used for baking. Kawson. All the varieties of Pouras stand firm against the highest wind, root deep, and will endure, without injury, a drought that ruins corn. The grain, which is abundant, is readily eaten by cows, norses, nogs and mules. It yields an immense mass of green forage, and bears the grain iu large heads at the top. Gregory.
