with his children and friends. He went on up to Tacoma yesterday morning. Mrs. B. F. BOYCE, residing near the Columbia river, was carried to this place on a stretcher

held up by a highwayman and robbed of what little pocket change he had with him. T. W. FARRIER was fined $12 and costs by Justice BOYLE for killing sage hens contrary to law.
He pleaded guilty to the charge... William MACK of the Teanaway was a visitor in the city Wednesday. He says the farmers in his

Frank McCANDLESS being among their number. Mr. CORNETT and ?? of North Yakima were also there
for a few days. Our people seem to be enjoying the best of health during the present warm weather. A case
or two of typhus fever have developed in a mild form, but at this time we understand there isn't
a case in the county. Miss Agnes HINMAN, one of the teachers in our public schools, has resigned in order to accept
a similar position in the Roslyn schools at an increase of salary. Miss HINMAN was one of our

He visited a great many parts of the neighboring states and enjoyed his trip ... From 75 to 100 miles on the Great Northern trains will be operated by electric motors on the
Cascade division instead of engines. The power will be generated from the waterfalls of the
Skykomish and Tumwater rivers alongside the track. This will do away with the danger in the
tunnel in which several persons have nearly suffocated with smoke recently. Engines 350 and 129 participated in a head-on collision in the yards Monday. The accident
occurred near the round house and ... nobody seems to understand just how such a thing could
happen... The pony trucks, pilots and boiler-heads in each machine were smashed, but no one
was hurt...

Walter R. TURNER came over from Cumberland this week for a few days visit with John BOLTON. J. R. STROM attended the carnival at Tacoma last week. The atmosphere has been so dense with smoke the past week that our people have been unable
almost to see the sun. The farmers of this section are hoping for a good, old-fashioned rain.
Owing to the continued warm spell, many people have been disappointed in the berry crop.


Fatal Accident to a Pilgrim Going to Seattle from Chicago Frank ERNEST, claiming Tripoli, Ia., as his home, was run over and killed at an early hour
yesterday morning. He was trying to beat his way to Seattle from Chicago and had come as far as
Ellensburg without mishap. The crew had driven him away from the train, but as the latter began
to pull out, ERNEST took a desperate chance by attempting to get aboard. His foot slipped down
until it was caught by the wheel. He was dragged down until the right leg and arm were crushed
and the left leg and arm were broken. He was removed to a Valley house where death ensued
three hours later.

ROSLYN NOTES (Cascade Miner)

Martin CAMERON, postmaster at Ellensburg, made us a pleasant call as he went through town on
his way to join Will GRAVES and a number of other campers from the 'burg'. We hope that anticipations
in the piscatorial line may be fully realized. When Captain BRADER reached the river on his way to the Honolulu coal property this week, he
found the boat on the opposite side and decided to wade across but miscalculated on the strength
of the stream. He lost his balance, his money, his watch and his dry goods, which he had taken
off and had in a bundle. However, he did not lose his head, and finally succeeded in reaching
camp the same condition that Adam was when he entered the Garden of Eden. Had the Captain not
been a strong swimmer, he would no doubt have lost his life.


C. L. COLLINS' store was entered by burglars Thursday night of last week and robbed of several
suits of clothes and about $12 that had been left in the cash register, the latter being found
the next morning three blocks away. Earlier the same night the St. Louis Brewery was relieved
of about $40, presumably by the same gang. One of the members of which was arrested, but
succeeded in getting away before he could be caged. M. F. BAKER, brother of our fellow townsman C. S. BAKER, arrived Monday from Jefferson City,
Mo., for the purpose of looking ?? the country.


The State Normal School opens Sept. 4. Let all who can, be ready to enter on the opening
