Wheat Looking Up.
The City of Salem ilouring mills
parted up last Monday, and nro
steadily turning out 400 barrels per
day, and tho prospect is good for It
to continue at full capacity during
the seasou. Wheat is coming in at
i the rate of 2,000 bushels daily, but
hen under full headway it will
probably rise to -1,000, the ordinary
rate, later on. Tho wheat is better
in quality and freer from wild oats
than usual. The eastern and San
Francisco markets are higher and
ijuite excited, and if the boats could
run up tho river so as to take advant
age of tho Yaquina steamers to Cali
fornia, prices here would be moro in
wcord with those ruling there. Tho
mill was paying 60 cents to-dny.
Hornets Cause a I'.nnaway.

way ensued, and tho boys were
thrown out. Ono had his foot
mashed very badly about the ankle.
Dr. M. Giesy was summoned, and
faring amputation would have to
t resorted to, sent in for tho assist
ance of Dr. Cusick, of Salem.

Two weeks ago a Salem lady and
girl took flowers and scripture verses
to the State prison. Here is a letter
written by jui inmate of tho peni
tentiary. It was not written with
a view to publication, and certainly
not with any expectation of the
author seeing his name in print,
because the prisoners are not per
mitted to receive newspapers pub
lished in this 6tate. The communi
cation appears to give some evidence
of appreciation and some hope that
good may be done by the AV. C. T.
U. Flower Mission. Tho national
superintendent is a Miss Cassidy; for
years a bed ridden invalid, at Louis
ville, Kentucky, who directs, from
her sick couch, thousands of these
efforts in various parts of the United
"Dear Sik: Please allow me to
express through you my sincere
thanks to tho invalid lady in Ken
tucky for tho flowers and verse
handed to me by a little girl through
tho bars of a prison cell.
The lady is imbued with the true
christian spirit; the spirit that visits
the imprisoned, comforts tho sick
and helps tho needy; the spirit that
would lift up tho fallen aud mnko
men better and kinder, more regard
ful of the rights of their fellows,
more worthy of tho image of God.
I feel convinced that the lady who
provided for us those appropriate
verses and beautiful flowers, though
an invalid, in this comparatively
inslguiflcaut portion of God's uni
verse, will bo no invalid in the,
to us invisible but nevertheless
certain, "mansions in the skies."
Sometime, somewhere, she will re
ceive her reward.

eleven inches length were eighteen
Hungarian prunes of large sizo and
