Along about tlio first of the year
series of lute resting letters were publish
edln the Wwr Hinie describing the
advantages of life In Ceutrat America,
and particularly In fluatemala. Ho
rapidly did the Interest grow that half
a hundred pemoni left their name at
this office signifying their Intention of
joining a colony. .The plan of. (he
colony was oo-opcrat!veaod while some
objected, nearly all favored that plan.
However along In April loallers bad
so shaped themselves that it wsa deem
ed advisable to go to Han Francisco and
get a written contract with the Quale
malean government through Its repre
aentatlve there. ; liuforlunalely the
plan of tha colony waa then changed
from a eo-operallve basis, lo an Indi
vidual eulerprlse, and at ouee the In

It la proposed tbat tbe main object of
(hie cokwy shall he to engage lit rsls-
Ing ooffee. ' Tbe ' advantages of that
business are that Hie climate Is healthy
orop - sure, and the profits large. The
advantage of a colony ptsu It that
tweuty persons, with f 1000, can wake
as much aioney eaoh aa one ienou
with 16000 lu (lie aauie business, and
life will he much more pleasant. Coffee
rwmlres four to five years to bring
paying crop, and It la to bold the ooloiiy
together while the coftee la growing
that tbe co-operative plan la deemed
the best. Ae soon aa tbe first orop
sold tbe several tracta of fund will be
devlded and the'colony will oeaae. "i
It la proposed that twenty persons
take charge of the )50,QU0 acres of land
a colony, paying the government
flOO for each tract sele!tcd, aud reserv
lug the balance for new oolc?lU. i If
tweuty person should go together
1,000 would be paid the government
and 2,000 acres of land be; deeded to
the colony aud 130,000 more he bouded
for five years. Every person Joining
tbeookiuyup to April 20 1N05, could
get the same terms unless the colony
voted otherwise. ,, ',,.. ". ..,
Each Colon 1st would be required to
subscribe for ten shares of stock In the
colony at a par value of $100 each, pay
log 25 per cent hi cash aud the balance
aa required, but good security would
be demanded ao that it oould be collect

With this money, and the labor . of
the colonists, a collet plantation would
be started. The colony would plant ou
each eoloulaU tract of land 15,000 coflee
trees and the oolouy would care fur all
the trees In the tweuty or more tracts
until they came Into bearing. ' '
If roads are to be built the colony
will build them; tf telephone Hues, or
telegraph lines, If a store with stock el
goods, or If hotel to tswrd the
colonists, tbe colony does It all. If
water-works, the colony builds them;
If a sawmill the colony builds It Kacb
colonist receives a credit for every day's
work doun, aud can go to the store aud
trade part out, and balance will be paid
hhu In cash at time of aalo of first crop.
The balance due the government will
then be paid aud deeds issued direct to
each colonist for 750 acres of land ou
which thirty acres of ooflee trees would
lie In bearing and brlug an annual net
luoome of at least $3,500. Tweuty
ooloulata putting $1,000 each luto tbe
colony proper, would make the capital
$0,000, and each working four years
would make an Investment of $00,000
more. At the cud or tbe "Fifth"
year, the aggregate Income from pro
ducts of tbe laud would theu return all
the InvestmeuU. The laud could then
be all paid for, also the wages of
ooloulata, aud leave enough to pay for
(be Improvements, such as colony
buildings, stock of goods, electric lights,
roads, etc, which would be colony pro
perty still, and could be sold to ludl-
Iduals and the money divided, or con
tinued m mlony property.
NON KK81 DENTS.
It Is proposed that In case there are
persons who desire to Invest with the
colony and not locate at first with them,
that for a certain stipulated price they
may have coffee trees planted, etc, and
pay the colony for taking care of them
Itcsldeuce after the first tweuty
colonists are secured la not necessary
and citizenship Is not required. Kaoii
person must Invest $1,000 and If they
do not work themselves, will receive
no credit and also have to pay the
colony for their shure of the work done.
For those who have more money to In
vest than a share In the colony, there
will be many good openings offered.
A site for a town will be selected and
laid out In lots aud blocks, aud trees
plunted aud street Improved. All pro
fits resulting from sales of lands, etc,
will go luto the colony treasury. Two
church buildings will bo erected, one
Protestant, the other Catholic, as the
natives will not work when deprived of
church prlvllages, A fine school will
be maintained In which Eugllsh aud
Spanish will be taught.
The cost of the buildings and
machinery will depend upon how many
acres are planted, and whether sugar
raising Is added to ooffee culture. A
neat Income will be secured by hand
ling the coffee berries of outside plant
ers at no much per hundred pounds.
The above Is a brief outline of the
colony on a co-operative basis and that

and claimed that Mr. iilracbburg bad
received the wheat, which he denied
In May., 1801, Ihu claim was made for
10,21 1 bushels of wheat, which was
then worth 80 cents a bushel. The
matter was taken before a referee," who
allowed Mr.Uently's claim of 10,211
bushel at 77 cents a bushel, ami interest
from IfWM, the : total clafur being
ovea $10,000 aud busts.' Tlie ' case was
taken before Judge Burnel t, of tlie clr

tha wheat, but no Interest from 1888,
thus making a difference of about
$1,700. It was appealed to the supreme

Albany, Wednesday, July 19, 1804,
Miss Cellna Burkhart, of Albany, to
Mr, Al Whlteaker, of near Indep
endence. A humane being, suppose to be a
man, who went by the name of Louis
Hawklus, went to Sweet Home lu Linn
county, many years ago and took up a
piece of land. Subsequently getting in
to trouble with oue of the neighbors,
he was struck over the head with a
club which fractured his skull. He
ciuiie to the Portland hospital for treat
ment, hut never fully recovered, aud It
In said to be tbe effect of the blow which
caused his death. During recent years
he had lived with Otto Lubker, at
Sweet Home. When he died It was re
ported that tlie deceased was a woman,
who hurj lived in the community all
these years masquerading In mole
attiie, but the remains proved to be
those of a being known to medical
science as a hermaphrodite. Before bis
death the deceased aald his name was
not Hawkins, but refused to give bis
right name or tell where he came from.
The body resembled a woman more
than a man.
1 Last fail I was taken with a kind of
summer complaint, accompanied with
a Wonderful dlarrTu.a." "Soon after my
wife's sister, who Uvea with us, was
taken the same way. ' We used almost
everything without benefit. Then 1
said, let Us try Chamberlain's (Joho,

we did, and that cured ua right away.
