Reports have come In from How ell's prairie and from other places In Marlon county and from several places In Polk county, that these con ditions prevail. Farmers and calttle growers are alarmed over the situation and many of them do not know Is tho matter with their cattle and believe that a serious epidemic prevails. Dr. .Keeler, tho well known voter narlan says the disease, which is really not a disease at all, is caused by the cattle eating dry grass.

Greensburg, Pa., July 30. Tho Pennsylvania's 18-hour train, west bound, dashed into a freight wreck while running CO miles an hour. The engine left tho track, but all tho cars remained on the rails; and no one was Injured, Tho stop mado by En gineer Corson is pronounced by rail roaders to be the most remarkable over made. The pilot plunged into the wreck, scattering it war and wide The sides of tho cars were scratched and the hand rails bent, but tho train lost only three and a half hours, when it proceeded westward to make up lost time. Endowed with the sentiments of nature from boyhood, which have been characteristic of all his writ ings, the verse following wns the first poetry written by the now ven erable, white-haired poet. That was 50 years ago when he rambled In the hills of Eastern Oregon. Ho wns nothing but a mere stripling of a boy then, still in his 'teens. Jon- quln Miller's career as a writer be gan with a little simple verso which he penned when he was not yet 18 years of age. Now ho Is known from one end of the country to the other, and abroad as well. The verse is as follews: The hill's new brown and tho heav en's blue, And a woodpecker pounded a hol low piece shell, And the gray grouse drummed the whole day through, Arid n quail whistled, all is well, all is well. He remembers his first work dis tinctly, and the quotation is tnken as ho repeated it yesterday, just be fore he left Portland for a trip to Now York and Boston, says the Ore gonlan. The original manuscript was burned in his homo near Fruit- quainted with mo for 04 years. My mother, for Instance." When Mr. Miller lived In Portland In tho early days he and Lelsh Apple gate wero great friends. Tho two were particularly Interested In tho writings of Mnhomot. "There Is ono quotation from Ma homet that I read onco with Apple gate, and It has been in my mind ov er since," said tho poet yesterday. "As I remember It, the piece wont something like this: "If I had but two loaves of bread, I would sell one and buy n bunch of violets.' That littlo thing appealed to mo then, nnd it does does yet, whenever I think of It. It combines this grent life and tho 'admiration of tho soul for nnture In such few words' that I havo thought of the verse all through life as a sort of text." Mr. Miller recently contributed a poem to tho Century Mngnzlne, en titled "Missouri," tnking for his sub ject the great river by that nnme. "When did tho poem appear," he was asked. "I nm not aware that it has been published," ho replied; "but I have been paid for the article, Just tho samo. Tho check .was tho biggest I .vale, Cal., some years ago.

As ho thought of his first little poem the old man seemed to look back with pleasure upon tho dnys of his youth. He meditated a moment, and spoke the verse ns he had com posed it at first, slowly, unevenly and as though It were a task to re call the poetry of his beginning. But after speaking the lines he brightened up and repeated tho piece and talked of his boyhood days In the country nnd of his Inspirations taken from nnture. The latest poetry written by the famous poet of the Sierras appeared in tho Sunset Magazine for April It is entitled "That Night In Nica ragua."

The recent dis coveries made by tho expedition under the auspices of tho British school of archaeology in Egypt, founded by Prof. Petrle, are of more than ordinary Importance and inter est. The greater part of tho work was done In tho land of Goschen in which the Israelites dwelt during their prosperity under tho vizlrshlp of Joseph, and also where, during their bondage they built tho store cities for Pharach. There was also another problem to bo solved. Be tween 2500 nnd 1C00 B. C. Egpyt was overrun by a hordo of Asiatic conquerors known as tho Hyksos. Having subjugated Egypt, they built a city in the fertile land of Goschen, which they called Avarls. This city has never been discovered, but Prof. Petrlo has found the remains of a camp city at Tel-al-Jerudlyah. An other Important discovery was tho finding- of the second store city built by the Israelites and called Ramses. It was Identified by Its ruins at Tol-el-Retabeh. The ruins of tho temple built by the Jewish high priest Onins, who fled from tho persecu tions under Antlochus Eplphancs, were found in a mound on tho west side of Tel-elJehudiyeh. Many im portant and valuable antiquities were unearthed by tho exploring party andare now exhibition at Uni versity college. In this city, where they will remain to tho end of the month.

Farm ers stayed up at night to capture tho woman or discover who sho was. Sho wns frequently seen, but those who gnvo chnso wero unable to capture her.
