The Astoria regatta dragon, which

proved to be just half that. Notwith
standing this, it was said to have been
an interesting sight.
A machine is said to have been made
in town last week designed to blow the

Mr. Geo. Barnum and wife were called
to Middleton last Saturday to visit John
Chapman, a son-in-law, and wife, who
had received the sad information from
the commandant of the Mare island
navy yard that their son, Roy G., a grad
uate of Newberg college and aged 20
years, had died August 8th, and was
buried with the honors dne him. Roy
enlisted last Mav, after the close of
school at Newberg. The body has been
exhumed, and is on its way to Salem,
where it will be given final burial today.
F. J. Miller, the hop man, says the
crop in Yamhill will be about 30 per
cent below that of last year. The quality
will be excellent. There are no lice in
the hops. Present quotations are nomi
nal, Scents. Oregon hops are two cents
lower than the market on account of the
bad quality of last year’s crop, which
makes buyers afraid. He thinks, with
the quality assured, the new crop will
bring a fair price. Mr. Miller is hand
ling 100 acres this year anti is probably
the most extensive grower in the state.
A. H. Thomas of Forest Grove, who
has just purchased the II. Hilton shoe
stock, will offer goods a few days before
moving the stock at exactly the first cost
at the shoe factory east, nothing added
for freight. Mr. Thomas’ profit will be
only what Mr. Hilton sacrificed in order
to move back east. First to call will get
first choice. Remember, goods cannot
be retailed the year round at w holesale
prices; now is a good chance to get a
supply for the winter at a bargain. Here
is the cost mark Mr. Hilton used and
will be found on all the goods:
so you can see just what the goods cost.
The town of Fossil, in Gilliam county,
is to have water works. A spring in the
hills, 80 feet above the town and three
miles away, is to be tapped with a pipe
line and the water carried to a reservoir.
^|ie route is easy, most of the ditch to
lay the pipe can be made with plows.
The spring flows 55,000 gallons of water
every 24 hours, which is ample to meet
Fossil's present needs. The quality of
the water ie excellent.
The town has
nearly enough money in the treasury to
build the water works. The town has
never been allowed to get in debt, with
the result that it has never sapped its
strength paying interest. The works
will cost from $5,000 to $6,000. Some
thing closely allied to this is possible
and probable for McMinnville at some
future time, and the sooner we exchange
the sluggish, muddy liquid of the Yam
hill for sparkling H2O of the mountains,

Miss Agnes Sweet of Portland returned
home Tuesday after a two weeks visit at
M. Underwood’s, during which time
she made herself very useful, the oppor
tunity being afforded by a misfortune
befalling the good lady of the house.
Mrs. Underwood, while engaged in
pouring hot water from a teakettle,
slipped, anti the water entered her shoe,
forming a hot compress that resulted in
an extremely painful sore.
Died.—In this city, at 3 a. tn. Monday,
August 22d, after an illness of about two
weeks, from peritonitis, Harvey Bene
dict, aged 18 years. The funeral was
conducted by Rev. Summerville at the
Methodist church, Tuesday, at 1 p. m.
Harvey was a good boy, and his sudden
death is a deep sorrow for his worthy
parents, and many young friends and
schoolmates. Rumor has it that his ill
ness was due to an injury received in
gymnastic exercises, but as to the truth
of this we know not.
The new county court has inaugurated
an excellent reform,in the matter of hav
ing bills properly made out and certified
before presentation for allowance. Here
tofore bills have come up in all kinds of
shape, sometimes written u[>on a small
scrap of paper, often without date or in
telligible form. The county now fur
nishes a printed billhead, of uniform
shape and size, with necessary blanks
for recording the action of the court, date
of filing, etc. The change will go a good
way toward systemizing the work.
The Manila Guards already have strong
invitations to attend the state fair and
the Portland exposition.
Cooper says he don’t know about that.
A good thing might be overdone. He
should at least exact a purse that would
make it profitable for everyone con
cerned. The state fair and the Portland
exposition are the biggest sorts of hogs,
and should get nothing without paying
roundly for it. When summed up, the
so-called state fair is Salem’s fair, and
the exposition, on the plea of advertising
our resources and attracting immigra
tion, gets our money and makes a show
of our products, and heads off the immi
gration, too, when it comes. We
have the beet county in the state, and
when we learn to foster our own inter
ests, dieblay onr own resources and do
our own advertising, we will forge ahead
in every respect. We should have fairs
and expositions of our own, or at least
get paid for assisting in others.
Altout ono month ago my child, which
is fifteen months old, had an attack of
diarrho-a, accompanied by vomiting. I
gave it such remidies as are usually given
in such cases, but as nothing gave relief,
we sent for a physician and it was under
his care for a week. At this time the
child had been sick for about ten days
and was having about twenty-five oper
ations of the bowels every twelve hours,
and we were convinced that unless it
soon obtained relief it would not
live. Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea remedy was recommended,
and I decided to try it. I soon noticed a
change for the better; by its continued
use a complete cure was brought about
and is now perfectly healthy.—C. L.
