Reub Harris, who ha* been off knocking
about for the good of hid health, returned
from East of the Mountains, last week,
looking as fresh and hearty as a young man.
J. T. Hembree and family toft for their
new home in East Portland, on Wednesday.
Some little of the very late grain is still
uncut; the continued smoke, with the late
fogs and light showers has retarded the rip
It rained here during the afternoon of the
6th. since which time the smoke has disap
peared nearly altogether, while clouds and
an occasional drizzle hue taken its place.
There is a two story frame building going
up in the rear of John Hulery’s saloon—the
lower story to be used as a wood-shed, the
upper part, nobody knows what.
T. O. Hutchinson, engaged to teach the
next term of school, has arrived and fixed
himself up for his time.
Al. Snyder, of the R epobteb , was in town
Friday, and made things quite lively ail
round here for a while. Come again, Al.
Snizzlekin says that “our boys are not
dudes at home, but think they’s dude when
they go to Portland.”
White winter wheat is now considered the
best for fall sowing, because that was the
only kind that stood the frost of last winter.
Those who were fortunate enough to have
that variety in last fall, were saved the ex-
tra expense ond trouble of resowing, and
had good crops. It is advertised for sale by
several, at $1 to f 1.60 per bushel.
Quite a number go to Portland, to-day, to
view the last spike celebration, and to feast
their eyes with a sight of all the great na
bobs that Mr. Villard invited to see us in our
wild western home.
beautiful and grand as this world is, it
has ite drawbacks—drawbacks in the shape
of plagues, posts, cranks, fiends, etc. But
the worst plague, the meanest p©6t. the
crankiest crank and most hellish fiend of
the lot, is the whittling fiend. You can al
ways know him at sight by the knife in hi»
hand, and nothing escapes it. Have you a
new fence, nicely painted and finished ? He
stops to admire it, and as ho saunters along
or stops to admire, hia knifo is busy : a chip
out of this picket, a notch out of that rail, a
job at tho gate-post, and so on till your
fsuco looks as if it might have been a breast
work in a rifle engagement or artillery fight.
Does be stop to talk to you at your door ?
in goes the knife and out comes a chip from
the post or panel, which ho Jays along liia
thumb and whittles to a point. You invit«
him into your house and give him your
best chair to sit on ; he is no sooner seated
than his ey^s wander after something to
whittle, but there is nothing within his
Teach. He begins to feel discouraged, when.
Gh, glory ! he sees a little of the seat of bis
chair between his logs; there is no hesitation
no thought of the injury to bedone ; in goes
the knife, first with a cut to the right, then,
with the left thumb pressed against the
blade to assist, another cut from the left,
aud out comes a chip ; and again he cut*,
and again, until you are forced to remind
him that be is disfiguring tho chair, when,
mon likely, ho will look up in blank aston
ishment and remark that “it don’t hurt it
much/’ Wherever you go you will find
marks of thiB indefatiguable hell cat. Fen
ces, porches, pews, chairs, tables, desks,
trees—everything, without regard to time,
place or ownership, falls a prey to this inc-st
aggravating and contemptible of all pests,
the whittling fiend, Down with him.

Good-bye, smoke and dust.

It rained a light shower Saturday.
Capt. Lafollett sawed his thumb only half
On Tuesday a little scrimmage ocoured
between two very quiet citizens in our
streets. One of them commenced striking
and clawing at the eyes of the other, when
lie shoved him off and armed himself with a
powerful and deadly weapon in the shape of
a piece of plank over a foot long, three
inches wide and half an inch thick, when
the bystanders interfered and separated
them. The conservators of the peace wade
no arrests. These are dog days; that’s
what’s the matter.
It is claimed by the threshing crew com
posed of some of our best citizens, who were
present at the row between Stewart and Mc
Donald, and the men of the neighborhood,
that we did them injustice in our last batch
of items wherein we intimate that a great
crime had been committed and noone would
arrest the criminal. It is claimed that Mc
Donald and the whole neighborhood are of
the, opinion that no crime had been commit
ted and consequently no one would swear
out a warrant, and we must say, after hear
ing the evidence, that we believe they were
right. Mr. Stewart had no trouble whatever
in securing bonds. The complaint was made
by parties in Sheridan, and a good deal of
hard feeling is caused thereby. As the whole
matter will go before the Grand Jury, we
will not comment on the evidence.
