Visit to Mt. Idaivo.—J ohn Brearley,
W m * Kettenbach, Hazen Squier and Mr.
McKinney, secured the most stylish team
tht town affords one day last week, and
took their departure M aunr'ftc for Mt. Idaho
ami Camas prairie. Much speculations has
been indulged in about what was their busi
ness. They no doubt think that what they
went for is no other persous business.
City Printing —Last year we proposed
to publish the city ordinances for 25 cents
per square, and received the contract at
that price, and then that fellow across the
way accused us of working for China wa
ges. This year he offered to do the same
class of printing for 9 cents per square and
course ho received the coutract, and he
welcome to it at that price. We want
none of it in ours for glory, nor for the
name of doing work that impoverishes us.
A Standard Work.— McKenncy's forth
coming Pacific Coast Directory, for 1883-4,
to be published early in the year is to be
the most complete work of the kind ever
published. It will contain information of
every city, town and villiage in the state of
California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington,
Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, Utah
and Arizona. Several improvements are
being made in the arrangement of the work,
making it more useful as a hand book than
any of its predecessors.
A Levi, of Genesee says that bis district
is the boss district for farming purposed
and that the people of that district are
more prosperous than others They will
have a full crop of wheat this year and a 3
crop of flax, lie says that he sells the same
lass of goods at Genessec for less price than
the traders do in Lewiston, and gives credit
to where he knows the debtor is good,
and he takes flour and other grainy in ex
change and pays the market price. We had
before said that country ftcrcfl were under
selling merchants in Lewiston but our asser
tion was denied. He £ays that at Union
town Tibs of sugar is being sold for $1.00,
while for the same class of sugar only 61bs
given for §1.00 in Lewiston. We as' ed him
how this could be done, to which he replied
that he supposed the difference was mado
upon the sale of sonic other classes of goods.
Morrell's Specialty Combination.—
This troupof six artists gave two entertain
ments at Urostein k Binnard's hall, one on
Friday eve and the other on Monday eve.
Our people have on several occasions been
disappointed in these treupes and they were
not forward in extending their patronage at
first. They opened with a thin house on
Friday eve , but tha hall was well tilled
towards the close, and every body seemed
well pleased. On Motiday eve. the weath
er was very hot, yet they had a good audi
ancc. Their songs are chaste and sung
with spirit and harmony* Mr. Fuller is far
above mediocrity as a baritone singer aud
performer upon the guitar. Burns with the
bones and Donally on the tamborine were
good, and their interrogotories and answers
with Smith, the middle man, and each oth
er were new aud witty. Mark Kraus'
dutch and Hebrew impersonations were
first rate. Burns and Donally in their dances
and impersonations of the Irish market
women were well up to the Irish charac
ter. The members of the company are afl
sober men, and don't destroy the effect of the
performances by dissipation and rowdyism
on the street*
The Hear IS Killed. —A large boar ha
for months past been making raids oil the
different sheep camps on Craig's mountain,
and (luring that time has succeeded in kilt
iug uear à hundred sheep. Every means
that could be devised to trap, shoot and
poison have proved fruitless till Tuesday
night of last week. He would approach a
sheep corral and when within two or three
rods raise upon his hind feet and walk
like a ]>erson towards the corral, looking
carefully in every direction that no one was
near, then go over into tho corral seize a
sheep, and take it out and go off with it
with thejgreatcst impunity and apparent un
concern. Several balls have been shot into
him, but produced little effect, not striking
him in a vital part . He would turn traps
topsy turvy, get the bait withoutjspriug the
traps. He, had no affinity for poison, and
was a tough customer generally. On one
occasion not long ago he was disturbed by
Mr. MoCreigh, a herder, and gave him a
chase round his tent, and would have
caught him had not his sheep dogs diverted
his attention by biting his healr. MoCreigh
abandoned his position for one night driv
ing his sheep to the prairie, but retfimfed
witli them to his old camp, taking with him
a Mr. King, who had much exuerience with
Grizzly's in California. They! together con
structed A platform about ten feet high in
the center of the corral and made it firm
and strong. Then they took their blankets
aud a Winchester rifle and went upon the
platform and lay down to watch his high
ness. At about two o'clock in the morn,
iug of Wednesday the bear mado hit ap
pearance and came into tlic corral. The
darkness was not so great as to prevent
them from seeing his figure distinctly.
When in good position they discharged the
Winchester, and brought him down He
ouickly rose and a second shot brought him
down again, gmd they gave him the third
ami fourth shot, and concluded to await
events till daylight, when they fuuod that
he had given up the ghost. They then
came down off the platform and skinned
him, dug a hole iu the corral and buried
his carcass, as it was too large for them to
remove it out. King, who ia couversant
with bears, estimated his weight *t 1200
pounds. He measured from the tip of his
nose to the end of his short tail, 11 feet.
