The Albany Democrat thinks nil
this fussing and yelling and bonfire
building over the election of u enti
dldato 1b a great waste. Think of
the thousands of dollars spent in
"smoke" just for a glorification,
whllo thero nro ragged knees und
empty stomaches on every comer,
and jxwrly paid ministers and bad
sidewalks and empty treasuries, and
so forth. On the other hand if the
present cfliclent president had been
re-elected and they had a big jubi
lation, they should have argued like
this: It buys cord wood of the pour
man, kerosene of the merchant,
gives employment to the laborer,
keeps the lucre on tho go, It didn't
cost anything anyway, was all won
In bets, and If they didn't spend it
In yelling they wouldn't give it
away anyway, etc., etc. lleally, it
is just human nature for the rooster
to crow when he has whipped
another one.
The City Council Holds nn Important
High rrlrcd Eggi.
A farmer near Silver Creek Falls
has lately been losing quite a num
ber of sheep. Ho thought wolves
were doing tho mischief and pre
pared for a wholesale poisoning.
He procured a number of eggs in
'which ho placed a quantity of
strychnine and scattered them
about where tho wolves might find
them. Imagine his surprise noxt
morning on going down to his
spring, to find carcasses of seven
teen wolves. Their scalps are worth
$5 apiece, and his friends congratu
late him on his night's work.

We Are Seen.
Mr. Wlnstanley of this city re
cently entertained an old friend of
his, Mr. W. Porter, of Warrington,
England. Upon his return home
Mr. Porter was interviewed by the
Cheshire Examiner nnd in answer
to a question as to Mr. Wlnstanley,
who left Warrington recently with
his family for America, and who now
lives at Salem, Oregon, Mr. Porter
said: "Salem is between 300 and
400 miles from Vancouver, and Is
tho capital of tho state of Oregon,
though by no means tho largest
town In that state. It Is situated
on tho Willamette river. I mado a
journey to see Mr. WInstanloy, and
spent three or four days with him.
When I got on to the platform at
Salem who should I see but Mr.
Wlnstanley himself, although he
was not expecting me, but T can
tell you ho was right glad to see me.
If 1 were to describe Salem I should
say It was like Knowsley Park, with
white houses studded about it, and
a main street running right through
it. Rut Knowsley Park is not near
so grand, for there you havo not got
gigantic mountains, peaked with
snow away In tho background us
thoy havo In Salem, nor have you
the beautiful green foliage, leading
right up the mountains, almost till
your eye strikes the snow-cap. As
soon as Mr. Wlnstanley got to Sa
lem lie got work at SJ dollars a day,
and ho bought a piece of land of
altoat forty acres which is, I should
say, worth nearly twice what ho
paid for It. Whllo I was staying at
Salem, Mr. and Mrs. Wlnstanley
and 1 called at the house of a fellow
workman of Mr. Wlnstanley a
large house standing In Its own
grounds, und led up to by an
uvouue, bordered on both sides In
line peach trees, and whilst there
we liuil placed bofore us plates of
peaohosofa most remarkable size,
and so rich that they seemed to
molt In your mouth. The climate
Is delightful, and tho Wlllamotto
Valley Is ono f the tlnest growing
districts I know of."
At half past five this morning the
rapid ringing of tho city fire bell
summoned Salem citizens from their
early morning nap and called the
fire companies to the residence of J.
L. Parrlsh, near the East Salem
high school building. A fire had
broken out in the kitchen, near the
chimney, and its origin is supposed
to have been from the defective flue.
The distance from tho center of the
city being so great, it was a consld.
erablo while before tho alarm could
be given, henco before a stream of
water was turned on, the flames had
made great headway. Upon
arrival, the Capital engine took her
stand on the bridge over Mill creek
and at once gave a good head of
water. As there was no plug near
the house, the supply of water had
to bo taken from tho creek. This
required an extra amount of hose,
and placed tho department under
great disadvantages, but neverthe
less their two steady streams soon
reduced the heat and conquered the
fire to such an extent that men could
return to their work of emptying
the houso of its contents. By rapid
uud systematic work they were able
to save much of tho household furni
ture, although everything in the
kitchen nnd dining room was lost.
When the fire was first discovered
it might have been possible to have
saved tho house by turning on the
stream from a house hose, but none
was ot hand, and tho efforts of Mr.
Parrlsh and his wife to smother the
flames were unavailing. They gave
tho alarm and tho neighbors were
quick to respond and assist them in
emptying tho house.
Mr. Purrish says his loss will be
not less than $5,000. above the in
surance of $2,000 which he carried
on the house, hi tho State. This loss
will fall qulto heavily upon him, as
the home had just been fitted up
after the spring fire and is now a
total loss, as only tho charred walls
of two rooms remain standing. The
foundation, however, is not injured.

J. H. Fisk, the analytic chemist,
says the coal is fifteen percent better

The mines are located about 90 miles

ket for coal from railroads, etc. It
is probable that the O. & C. railroad
would alone take the entire output
of the mines. So says Watkinds.
