Practice Shooting at Night. Washington, Sept. 17. Remarkable results have already been obtained in th naval target practice now going on in Menemsha Bight. The vessels of the North Atlantic squadron in last Spring's target practice broke all the world's records for rapidity and ac curacy of fire both with big and little guns, but this was daylight work under fovorable conditions for good shooting. The big ships are sow doing some ex traordinary night shooting. The ex perience of the Russo-Japanese war has convinced the eeneral board that in the future the great naval battles may be fought at night, and it is certain that most of the torpedo work will be done in the hours of darkness. Hence it iB believed to be essential to develop the gun-pointers in night work, and already surprising results have been obtained in the practice in the night. Using ber eight inch guns, one of the battleships made eight hits out of nine shots at night. The target, distant about a mile, was illuminated by a search light, and the gunners used a special night sight. The ship from which this shooting was done was forging ahead in the open sea at ten knots. Auto Explodes. McMinnville, Or.. Sept. 17. A George Pearce, of Salem, struck ; match to "spark" his automobile here yesterday afternoon, a small stream o gasoline, which had trickled under the heavyjplatform on which the machine was standing, exploded, neatly resulting in instant death for three men. The injuries are as follows : George I'earce, no86 split open its whole length; left eyo injured and one foot broken. W. II. Curran of McMinnville, foot broken ; face severely bruised and bad ly shocked. J. R. Derby, a farmer watching the machine, back severely hurt. Fires Drive Ont Deer. Grant's Pass, Or. Sept. 17. Deer are being slain abundantly by both profes sional and novice in Southern Oregon this season. The heavy fires have driven them out of the mountains and they have been obliged to seek retreat in the open fields of the lowlands. One farmer, who lives near Grant'sfPass stated yesterday that he has recently seen whole herds of deer in his fields, the animals having been driven down by forest fires. While this condition is not general, it is a fact, nevertheless that there are more deer in the South ern Oregon valleys, this summer than have been known for many s-ears, and it can only be ascribed to the forest fires. lrili Immigrant. New York, Sept, 17. An unusual in flux of Irish immigrants in the last two months is reported by the immigration authorities. The records show that in the last seven days nearly 1500 Irish im migrants have arrived at Ellis Island. Of these nearh 70 pet tmii were girls, and only a email percentage of the 'otal were "ver 23 years old. Charge of the 00. London, Sept. 17. There are 635 dis appointed girls in Great Britain today But there is at least one who is su premely happy. Some months ego a vonn.' colonist of British Columbia wrote t Edgar Wal lace, asking him to choose from among the homeless girls of London one who would be willing to go out to him as his wife. The publication of this letter produced a flood of correspondence. Six hundred and thirty-Hix spinsters, ranging in age from 17 to 45. were anxious to take tbe fatal step. Six hundred .and thirty-six adventurous souls looked forward with pleasurable anticipation to the "Robinson Crusoe sort of life" that the young colonial promised. A log hut amid the dark pines of the Rockies ; a vista of snowclad peaks. and tbe great stretches of mountain lakes. These are the surroundings in which tbe newly married pair will pass the next few years of their lives. Yet, despite tbe promised loneliness, the applicants were eager to join for tunes with the man of British Colum bia. Mr. Wallace, who has spent an anxious week in reading through the correspondence and interviewing can didates, has finished his work, and next week the bride will be started, "carriage paid," to her destination. "I have chosen a country girl," he said this week. "She is from Little- hampton, Sussex. Her age is 21, and she is homeless. She is a good cook, pretty, and a neat little body. I think she will make oar Canadian friend a good little wife- Some of the letters from applicants were distinctly funny. Their Bravery Fanatical. Moscow, Sept. 19. Commander Da- bitch, of the cruiser Gromobol, one of the Vladivostok squadron, has been in tervied here. He tells the story of the battle of his squadron with Kamimura practically as it has been told before He says that during the fight the Grom ohnl fired 00(10 shells and Commander Dabitch himself was twice wounded, once by the bursting of an eight-inch shell, which left splinters in his body Me sppaks of the Japanese bravery us fanatical and says : Dining the pinking of Japanese trans ports by the Vladivostok squadron it was almost impossible to save their crws. At one time the water around the cruiser was filled -'ith a thousand Japanese, who sank rather than be re cned. Two were thrown a rope, which fell across them, hut they deliberately threw off the rope and sank, shaking their fists at the Russians. rand Office Business. La Grande, Or., Sept. 17.

A quantity of the fish in 000 pound barrels has been shipped to Ger man', and reached there in excellent condition. Both fish and barrels were home industry, the fish being caught in the bay and the barrels manufactured at tbe stave factory. 1XH A F WPyEOETADLE SICILIAN 04&lUiUw? Hair Renewer III-IATII'S TOBACCO POUCH. Sole Memento of Exciting Encouii. ter with a IHooiie. The next tim you meet V. H. Heatn ask bim to show you his to bacco poach. It don't look to be much and is some dirty, but that pouch has a history. Mere money wouldn't buy that little folderol from Mr. Heath, but for fear he may be too modest to tell the yarn which concerns' how he came to possess it t&a-' Gazette will do so. That smoke-sack was originally a part of the epidermis of one of the biggest moose in Cook county, Minnesota. The camp was out of meat, in. faot the boys hadn't tasted any thing wild fot several weeks, so Heath, being a pretty accommo dating sort of a chap in his young er days, and probably feeling something of a goneness in his in nards himself, volunteered to go out after some meat. He chased through the woods and swamps nearly all day without seeing a thiDg to shoot at, but along late in the afternoon he came upon the trail of a moose whose track in tbe moist earth proclaimed it to be a monster of his kind. He hurried after it, but getting rather a poor shot at it, only crippled the ani mal, which so maddened it that he at once gave chase to his would-be slayer. Heath's gun was an Ad- fashioned Marlin and in trying to pump in another cartridge the ex ploded shell became locked in the barrel and his most frenzied efforts oould not eject it. Heath simply had to take to a tree and the sap- liDg he chose he thought that moose would surely gore down be fore he could fix that gun. But he bit and clawed and hammered un til he finally got it out, and then it was his play. He bored a verti cal hole through that moose, the bullet entering the center of the backbone near the, shoulder blade. When he stooped over the animal to give it the coup de grace with his hunting knife it still had vital ity encugh to give him a swift kick, sending him Hbout a rod. The distance between the tips of his antlers was over six feet, and the webbed part was sixteen inches across. There was 480 pounds of meat after bein-jr dressed. A Chippewa Indian tanned the hide and bis squaw made 50 pair of moccasins and the pouch from it. New Gold Found. Much excitement bus been caused in Australia by the announcement rf the discovery of h new gold field in tbe northern pnrt of the island.

Colic and Bloat. Many horses die from colic in this country, also many cattle from bloat. They can be oured by the following simple remedies: For colio : One-hal f ounce tinct ure ginger, 1 drachm peppermint oil, 1 pint of warm water. Shake aud drench the animal. For bloat: One pint warm water, 1 pint good vinegar, pack age of soda. Drench. It will be necessary to force the cow's mouth open with a stick. It is foolish to let valuable ani mals die when some simple reme dy can be administered and save them. How's This?
