-Mvi nndoiie o'clock, when gazing
toward tho west, a bright bow of
clear white spread clear across the
TMiith from horizon to horizon. The
moon was brightly shining, and of
course the bow was a rainbow.
This sight is often read of, but not
often seen. The moon's rays are
not strong enough to give to tho
bow the prismatic colors seen in the
bow of day time, but it was a grand

BACK TO 1IIS FIRST LOVE.
Adventure Has its CharmsBut Old
Ago Likes Comfort.
Wo mentioned yestorday the
return to this city of D. D. Pretty
man, ono of our old pioneers, who
left the state about eighteen months
ago to try tho virtues of our neighbor
territory, Idaho, as a placo of abode.
Mr. Prettyinan lias two sons, stirring
and energetic young men, who
conceived the notion that Oregon
was too slow, and desired to shove
out and take a part in tho activities
they had heard so much talk of.
The first move of this family, D. D,
Prettymau and wife and tho two
sons, was to Viola, in tho Cceur d'
tVleue, about 75 miles south of
Spokane Falls and sevcu miles
distant from Moscow. This latter
town was formerly county seat of
jSez Perce county, but anew county
(Lataw) has lately been formed, In
which Moscow is now compre
hended. This is a bleak mountain
ous country, situated iu a metal
bearing region and poorly adapted
for farming. The sudden and
violent changes of atmosphere
ail'ected his lungs and ho suffered
terribly with asthma. This is a
growing country; mineral develop
ment creates somo activity, and
thero is a continued settlement
along the lino of tho Northern
Pacific. But the spaces aro almost
Doundless in that region, and farm
ing lands few and far between. Our
aged friend grow homesick, adven
ture had slight charms for him.
Tho result was ho struck out for
Salem, where his former homo
awaited him. Mrs. Prettyman will
rejoin him shortly. Tho young men
havo left for Big Bend, where
they propose to follow stock raising
"The End on It."
To-day closes up tho present offi
cial career of numerous officials
throughout the state, and this coun
ty sees its changes along with tho
rest of them. The carpenters aro at
Avork at tho court houso fitting up
tho room just back of tho clerk's
vault, to be used by tho now county
recorder. They havo put up several
new cases, and pigeon holes in tho
clerk's office, and will fix up tho re
corder's ofllco in tho same way.

of Marion county will bo performed
