He found these animals not so plentiful as he supposed, belt managed to trap enongn in snout , two weeks' worn to bring him in $M. ' Mr. Olfleld was born in Arkansas, in 1839 flu started, with his parents, across the pla'iis. for Oregon, in 1850.

He served in the Indian wars, in Captain I'ierson's Company K.Firet Ore gon mounted infantry; He ha lived most of his life In Clackamas county, where he is well known. He is ah nnclo of Af re.

Kev. William Jilackstone had an orchard on the west slope of iicncon Hill. Governor Endicott es tablished nurserius in Salem as early as NIL'S, and in 1H4K sold five hundred apple trees to Williain Trask for 280 acres of land. Governor Winthrop was very prominent In horticultural' matters as early as 1030. having land on the Mystic river and a garden at the foot of Hcliool street, and also another one at Governor's Island. The colonial legislature granted him the use of this island for a rental of two bushels of apples, one for the gover nor and one for the .legislature. In 1730 apples were for sale in the market from the Jilackstone orchard. Hon, J'aul Dudley sent to England in 17-'ilan account of the culture rt fruit in Koxbury. He tells of trees -there which wore from nx to ten feet high and each lK'uriiig from thirty to thirty eight bushels.

Ho Small Parl-Th Belief la Toad Stones. ! Ths unfortunate toad has from time- Immemorial been, an object of distrust and aversion, especially among the common people. A pleasing tale runs that a gentleman, walking along country lane, came suddenly upon village boy belaboring the .crushed body of a toad with a heavy stick and exclaiming at eacn wow, "i 11 lurn 'e to be a toadf" whereat the Indignant newcomer, seising the miscreant by . bis collar, vigorously applied a cane to his legs, remarking, "I'll lam rou to be a boy!" The popular hatred of the toad, Indeed, Is of such antiquity and Is still so general as to seem In eradlcable. That the creature la not dangerously poisonous it Is hopeless to attempt to convince the ordinary rustic. Doubtless this belief has its origin In the acrid secretion which the toad has the power of emitting when disturbed or annoyed unduly and which will cause a dog that has In cautiously picked up a toad to foam at the mouth. Again, the uncouth ap pearance of the creature has had much to do with the feeling of repulsion with which It has always been regard ed. "Squat like a toad" Is the phrase by which Milton describes the evil one essaying to reach the ear of Eve. Superstition, In truth, has laid a firm hold on the toad's misshapen figure, The belief, not only In the existence of "toad stones," but In their efficacy as h sovereign remedy for certain Ills, yiilch Is still common In parts of the 'country, Is of very ancient date, "There fs to be found In the heads of old and great toads," soys Fenton, writing In I860, "a stone they call borax, or stelon, which, being used as u-lngs, gives forewarning of venom.' in tne bonaesuorougn collection Is a silver ring of the fifteenth century In which one of these toad stones Is set a bey wore supposed always to bear on their surface a figure resembling a toad, being somewhat similar trinkets one may Imagine, to the scarab&us ornament of the Egyptians.

It was believed Unit when brought near to poison the stone u vented and chang ed color, thus couvcyln;: to Its wear ers a timely warning of danger. It is to these pecull t amulets that Shakespeare Is supposed to refer in A Yon Like It:" Bwoet are the uses of adversity, Which, Ilka the' toad, ugly and venomous, Wears yet a precious Jewel In his head. Is H not probable, however, that the poet, being a poet, is here alluding to the eye of the toad, an object, as all who are really familiar with the ap pearance of this bumble batrncbian Will agree, than which thers are few more beautiful In nature? Perhaps the most familiar supersti tion in regard to toads Is that, still rife, Which supposes them capable of exist ing for an indefinite period In the Inte rior of rocks, stones or hermetically scaled cavities. Numberless "authen tic Instances" of this remarkable pow er have been brought forward from time to time. The following exam ple from an old book Is ty k.l; "In 17i a Mr. George Wlls m, r; met with a toad, which ? ,ly Im mured In a stone wai. was then building. In the mU-. vAe wall he made a close cell of Unit 5 ' Stone, Just fit for the magnitude of in. body and seemingly bo plastered as to prevent the admisslfin of air. In. 1809, Sixteen years afterward, it was found necessary to open a gap in this wall for a passage of carts, when the poor creature was found alive In its strong hold. It seemed at Brut In a very tor pid state, but It soon recovered anima tion and activity and, as If sensible of the blessings of freedom, made Its way te a collection of stones and disappear ed." It Is known that toads can exist for a long time without food, and it Is generally believed that they live to .a great age, and doubtless these two pe-Culla.-ities have had much to do with Mia superstition in regard to their sun- :sed penchant for a hermit's life.

It need only be remarked that none of his victims sur vived the Incarceration. In legendary as in superstitious lore the toad plays no smaiT part. It may not be generally known that the fleur-de-lis of France was originally in shape toad. Thus at least runs the tale. Clovls, king of France, bore on his ban ner the device of three toads, or "botes," as they were called In old French. His baptism gave great umbrage to the Art Una, who" rebelled and assembled a arg, host against him under King Candat. Clovls while on his way to meet the heretics was granted a vision, jwherelnhe saw In the heavens his do- Wee of three toads miraculously chang ed Into three lilies "or" on a banner "nsur."

"Art ex-bank official said that during his career in the banking business he had known more than one employee of a bunjt to get into trouble on ac count of carelessness in money. One collector, who was a light heart ed fellow, was going along"the street In high water season flipping up a X 51 ! C4-kvl twenty dollar piece with his thumb VV 1 1 U U F . .&TOCM nuu linger ana catching it as it came down. Finally it slipped and fell through a grating on the sidewalk Into ouout two feet of water. He made some efforts to recover it, but finally decided to wait till the water was gone, and then it was found that the coin was also gone. Another time the same fellow was coming up the street with 110,000 In twenty dollar pieces on bis shoulder. In some way be lost bis hold on the sack, and In striking the sidewalk It burst, and the coins rolled in all directions. A number of people rushed to his assistance, but he described a large circle around the sack and, waving bis arms wildly, or dered everybody to "stand back." He recovered most of the coin, but decided to get out of the banking business. " Another time a Chinaman came into the bank and deposited $200 and took a certificate, of deposit. The clerk who made out the certificate was pre occupied and wrote $2,000 on it and on the stub, Vhen he made up his cash at night he was $1,800 short He knew where the mistake was and tried to hunt up the Chinaman; but al though he got a clew, he could never find him, and he remained $1,800 short on the books. He had a notice of the date of the certificate, amount, etc. pasted in bis desk and was always on the lookout to catch the certificate as it came In. Just a year from the day the deposit was made the Chinaman walked Into the bank and presented the certificate to be cashed. When asked how much he wanted he said nll-$200. He bad never noticed the mistake in the amount of the certifi cate, and he has never found It out. and the clerk suffered the worry of be ing short in his mind for a whole year all for nothing.-Portland Oregonlan.
