The poplar trees in The Dalles and Portland will be girded because the roots are injuring the sewers. Wadhams & Co ., wholesale grocers of Portland, have presented the Hillsboro base ball team with new uniforms. a cushion handle bar invention. Mr. Hullt has made application also for two other inventions—a cushion seat sup porter. working on the same principle as the cushion handle bar, and a new sprocket coaster brake. This coaster brake is similar to those now in use, only that it is applied to the sprocket wheel and permits the revolving of the chain. Its construction is simple, containing but nine pieces, while the brake now used has 22. Being attached to the sprocket there is necessarily less friction and the brake will last the lifetime of the wheel. Mr. Hullt has some good in ventions and should be able to realize considerable money from the sale of the same U. S. Consul Geo. W. Colvig, of Grant’s Pass,has arrived at Barranquilla, Colombia, South America, aud writes to the Observer as follows: “We arrived here safe aud well on July 5th and found the city to be a very nice one and one of the most healthy in South America. It is on sandy soil and there is no marsh land anywhere near it, as it is built on low rolling sand hills. It is a large place and is built of brick, stone and cement. Many of the buildings are three-story and the streets are clean and dry, except when it is raining, and then the sand is simply wet for a few hours. We are slopping at a first-class English hotel, and you will be surprised when I tell you that it only costs us six dollars per month each in U.

Owuers of the mines and their postoffice addresses have also been listed. Ml’. Edison has sent one of his best men to talk with Mr. Miller, and Oregon nickel mines will soon receive some attention. The new crop of potatoes is moving at an unusually lively rate for so early in the season. Many carload lots have been shipped to the upper country aud Puget sound. Dealers are paying 90 cents per cental, or about $1.10 per sack and growers are hastening to get as many as possible off their hands at this rate, which is better than ft.25 in the spring, for it saves a lot of hauling and loss by shrinkage. Califoruia is also shipping large quantities of potatoes south to Texas and contiguous territory. Potato growers in this section say their potatoes will not be so large as usual on account of lack of rain, but the quality will be A I. 2.02,4. He trotted the first half in 59,4 seconds or less than a minute. The feat, after a gradual lowering of the trotting record for 95 years, makes it certain tnat the horse will yet be born that will trot a mile in two minutes, a fact that horse men a generation or two ago refused to believe. The only question in the mat ter is as to when the event will happen, whether in a few or in a score of years.

Wade has been marketing chittim bark. He realized a neat little sum from the sale. , Dan Kirby and family of Bellevue were visiting with Mrs. Cronin a few days this week. Mrs. Newt Branson and daughter of Bellevue visited with Mrs. M. Potter Saturday and Sunday. Miss Isabel Evans has gone to Upper Willamina to spend a few weeks prior to the hop-picking season. Mrs. A. J. Flynn and children re turned home Sunday after a visit of sev eral days with relatives on Mill creek. By the end of the week nearly all the grain will be cut excepting the late-sown oats. Threshing will begin next week. Mrs. J. Eboralf and little daughter, ac companied by Miss Agnes Eborall, vis ited relatives near McMinnville Saturday and Sunday. Miss Olive Lambright left Monday for .McMinnville, where she will visit a few days. She intends going to Forest Grove to visit with Miss Elva Baker be fore her return home. AMITI. J. W. Briedwell, Jr., has sold a half interest in his elevator at this place to B. W. Rea. Enough threshing has been done in this vicinity to show that the yield of wheat will be fully up to the average, some fields have averaged over thirty bushels to the acre, and those were not among the best. Friday evening Elder Cane, pastor of the Christian church at this place, lost the little finger of his right hand by getting it caught in the elevator of a sacker at Roth's threshing machine, while trying to put on a belt. He was brought to town and the member was taken off close to the hand. C. E. Stone sustained a broken ankle which will lay him up for some time. Saturday morning while working with a hay baler, he slipped and let a bale of hay fall on his right leg, which broke the ankle joint. He was brought to town and the fracture was reduced, and it is thought he will get along all right, yet the fracture is a bad one. Two Far.lteacliing Rtrlke. Effects of The big strike in San Francisco has bad its effect on the lumbering industry in Astoria and the surrounding country. While the effect in the city has been beneficial, in the logging districts it has been detrimental. The strike has caused one peculiar state of affairs, in that it is possible for some of the San Francisco fruit canneries to receive boxes from Astoria mills, while they are unable to get supplies from San Francisco box factories, locat ed, in some instances, not more than loo yards away from the cannery. This is due to the fact that there are no rail con nections between the San Francisco canneries and factories, while all the canneries have sidetracks from the Southern Pacific railroads, over which boxes from outside points are hauled. The Clatsop mill company has a big force of men at work manufacturing boxes, and the daily output is about 4000. All boxes not required for the local demand are shipped south to the bay city. As a result of the condition of the Sau- Francisco lumber market, all the legging camps in Pacific county. Wash., with four exceptions, have been closed down, and one of the four is expected to sus pend operations within thirty days. Another cause for the close-down is that A. M. Simpson, the millionaire lumber dealer, is building a new sawmill, and there will be lighter demand for logs un til this mill is finished. The closing down of the Washington camps will throw out of employment for a time a large number of men. It is thought that the lumber industry will be much more active in Clatsop and Tillamook counties when the Nehalem river is improved. The settlers have re monstrated against the leasing of the river to the Wheeler lumber company, but President Vosberg and Attorney Ma gers will personally call on the farmers and endeavor to show them thst the its- piovement proposed by the company will be a good thing for everybody con cerned. The extension of the Northern into that country is now regarded as a matter of much uncertainty. Get from Portland to Chicago in 72 hours—j'lst .3 days.
