(The Yakima Record copies were taken from microfilm which is very hard to read, too light
and/or too dark), therefore there may be articles which were missed by the transcriber.)

COAL

Some fine croppings of coal were brought into Ellensburg the past week by Messrs. MAHR and PACKWOOD. Should it prove to be the
anthracite, upon development, it will be the big find of the country. We only regret that it is located upon the other side of the mountains.

MUTTON TO THE SOUND

The Seattle Intelligencer says "C. C. COLEMAN has just come from Kittitas Valley with a band of 500 sheep for the market here. He came
via the Snoqualmie Pass, and reports it in better condition than he ever before saw it at this time of the year.

DANGEROUSLY SICK

We hear a painful rumor that Moses BOLLMAN, one of Yakima's early citizens, is lying dangerously ill at Ellensburg.

A CLOSE CALL

The fall rise in our streams is now at hand, and parties who are not familiar with the fords cannot be too careful in crossing. Tuesday
last Mr. TURNER, of Kittitas Valley, in company with some friends, attempted to ford the Yakima above town. His team and wagon was carried
down the stream some distance by the force of the current and two or three times all were in swimming water. But fortunately a shallow
place was found and all succeeded in getting to shore.

GONE BELOW

John A. SHOUDY, one of the leading merchants of Ellensburg, ???? accompanied by P. T. GERVAIS, one of our own merchants, started for
Portland on Monday last. Both gents go to replenish their stock of goods. G. W. CAREY is also below the same purpose.

IN TOWN

We noticed in town, during the week, the pleasing countenances of Mr. MASTERSON for the Teanaway, and Mr. DONAHOE from the Peshastin.
The Teanaway country is beginning to attract some attention from settlers, a few already having settled there, and who speak of it in
flattering terms.

A RECAPTURE

Last week we gave an account of the escape of John BOGGS alias CURRAN, a desperado, who had been taken into custody at Ellensburg, and
brought down here. From a paper found on his person, it was generally believed by our stock men he belonged to a band of horse thieves who
have been committing depredations within our county. Parties here also recognized him as an escape from the Oregon penitentiary for whose
recapture a $200 reward was offered. Such characters are not wanted in this county, especially by our stock men who have fine horses
on the range.....
