Despite the stormy evening the

being a unique entertainment known as
"breaking the jugs." For some weeks
past the M. E. Sunday school children
have put their spare dimes and nickels
into little enrthern jugs, and last ovening
they were broken and the money
counted. The exercises opened
by the choir singing "Holy Spirit

panying on the organ, after which
Scott Bozorth read "Order Up tho Cart

cup" was then sung by the choir, followed
by a recitation, "Alcohol and Tobacco,"
by F. B. Elberson. Some of the jugs
were then broken, the result being as fol

The sad tidings wore rvceived at this
placo last Saturday night, says tho Oya
tcrvillo Journal, that Ed. K. Patterson,
familiarly known as "Uncle Ed." had
been drowned. It stems tlmt Ed. was on
his way to South Bend with Fred Lobarl,
in a sloop, and when off Bay Center, Lo
bart went ashore with a lady, leaving tho
deceased alono in tho boat. On return
ing a short time after, Patterson could
not be found, and a search ashore failed
to reveal his whereabouts. On going to
tho boat a second time, however, his
body was seen a short distance away, and
life "found to be extinct. He was taken
ashore, and as soon as possible
placed aboard of the Favor

took place on Monday, and was numer

speculation, but the general supposition
is that he lost his balauco and tell over

coat was powerless to save himself. Mr.

In the estimates of the secretary of the

built is designed to take the place of the

quated, niter twenty-six yeara battling

Tho Tom Coricin was built for this dis

that she was a good seaworthy vessel, and
so on various occasions have sent her as
near the North Polo as Pacific waters
allow. The Shubrick has done good serv

work for her to do.

The First X. P. B. B. Prenldent.
Josiah Perham, tho first president of
the Northern Pacific Railroad company,
was a man of great energy, integrity and
singleness of purpose. He was an en
thusiast, but at the same time a practical
man of business, and ho had tho rare
faculty of communicating his enthusi
asm to others. He was born in 1803, in
"Wilton, Maine, and in his early business
career first a country storekeeper, and
afterwards the proprietor of a small
woolen mill. Going into land specula
tion in Maino, ho failed, but afterwards
as a wool merchant in Boston, he was
successful, and honestly discharged in
full all the old debts from which tho law
had released him.
In Boston he exhibited a panorama
known as "Perham's Seven-Mile Mirror,"
and organized cheap excursions from
country towns into the city and back,
selling tho railroad tickets and tickets to
his show at the same time. These excur
sions became so popular that he devel
oped his system greatly, sold out his pan
orama and organized excursion tours to
New York, Washington, the White
Mountains and other places. Ho may
justly be called the father of the cheap
excursion s3-steni. He became interested
in the general project for a Pacific rail
road at an early day. In 1SG0 Perham
obtained from the Maine legislature a
charter for the People's Pacific Railroad
company, and organized the company in
Boston. This was the predecessor of the
Northern Pacific company. Porham's
plan was to have his company adopted by
congress as the ono to build the road to
San Francisco, and, failing in this, he
fell back upon the Northern route, of
which he became an ardent advocate af
ter the passage of the Union Pacific bill
In 1SG4, after two serious efforts in
"Washington, Perham secured the passage
of a bill creating the Northern Pacific
companv.and naming him and his friends
of the People's company, with others,
the incorporators. This result was a tri
umph of perseverance, enthusiasm and
devoted personal exertion.
The company was organized in Boston,
in the fall of 18GI, end Perham was
chosen president. He had made the seri
ous mistake of inserting a provision in
the charter act prohibiting tho Is
sue of bonds. thinking that
this would popularize the scheme
that he could raise the hundred
millions of capital needed by subscrip
tions to tho stock. Ho believed that ono
million of the people could be persuaded
to take one share each.
This was the lame spot in his plan.
The subscriptions wore not forthcoming,
ho was involved in debts contracted to
obtain the passage of the charter, and
in December, 1865, ho was compelled to
turn over the franchiso to an organiza
tion of Now England capitalists and re
sign .the presidency. It was alleged
afterwards that the agreement with him
was not fully carried out. However this
may have been, the considerations ho
received for surrendering the control of
the lranchise was barely suthcient to dis
charge his debts.
Perham did not live to see the work of
building tho Northern Pacific begun. He
died in lbus, a poor man, dependent upon
his son for support. His last days were
embittered by tho reflection that he had
spent many years of his life in an enter
prise from which ho hod derived no bene
fits, although he knew it was destined to
make the fortunes of many who had
home no part in its early struggles.
As Ocegok Town Raided. Says the
Boise Slaleman : From a gentleman who
came up from Caldwell yesterday, we
learn that a telegram reached that place
stating that on Sunday afternoon a band
of men number not given took pos
session of tho town of Huntington on
Uurnt river, Uregon, the point of junc
tion of the O. S. L. and the O. R
& N. railways, and committed several
robberies of larco amounts of money.
Among the rost it is stated that Mr. J. F.
Fvfer; a merchant doing business at
Huntington, wa3 robbed of U,OC0 in
money, checks and dratts. Tho pay
master 01 the grading and construction
forces of the railroad company is also re
ported for a large amount. Telegrams
of seventy-five words wero promptly sent
to all the stations along tho line de
scribing the robbers and ordering the
stoppage of payment of time checks
Intense excitement prevailed at Caldwell,
and the confusion was too great to allow
more definite information to bo gained.

a recent Now York Sun may not at this
juncture prove wholly uninteresting:
"The uneasv feelinc in "Wall street con

more and more dull. The averagt rdaily
transactions were again on tho decrease
last week, and although the general tone
of tho market looked steady, several
specialties were very roughlv handled.
T he YiUard stocks, the Union I'acific,nnd
the Northwestern were conspicuous
among them. The two last-named stocks
had special reasons for showinc a de
cline, and in the case of the Northwestern
at least the fall is only temporary. But
the Villard stocks merelv resumed their
natural downward course, which was
slackened for a moment bv the issue of
the new mortgage. Now that the bonds
are taken up by the creditors of that ill
fated concern, tho stock held by them up
till now must be sold, and last week's
drop in tho price will probably go on with
interesting velocity. There is noj

The Sample Copy Fieml.
Recently it seems to us as though a
large number of people throughout this
country have nothing to do but to write
postal cards to newspaper publishers, ask
ing for a sample copy of their paper.
This is a new and growing industry. Bill
Nye expresses the sentiments of a good

It costs only one cent to get a samplo copy,
and at that rate the average bore of this
denomination expects to got a $J weekly

each week and sign a different name, but
that don t injure his feelings any. He
