The petitioners argued that the improvement contemplated would have the elfoct of improving the market for a'l trie timber of the Clacka mas basin, and that the company could not afford to make the iinprovments without the right to collect toll from the business that should profit by its investment. The court granted the petition, after reducing the term from 25 to 10 years and reserving for Mr. Cross the right to run bis cwn logs on (lie river by paving 10 cents per 1000 feet for the general benefits to be derived from the company's improve ments. The river was also divided into three Hiretclivs lor toll purposes, and the toll was tlxed at (I'.t ami NJ cents and 11 per 10IK) feet f-r driving the timber anil rafting il nt die mouth t the stream, The boom company is to give a bond in iho sntii of $10,000 that it will keep and preform all its agree ments.

Donaldson. Poisoned. Tho family of John Fleil man, who resides two milex east of Damasca8, were poisoned on Monday Sunday evening M'. Heilman, as is his custom, drew a barrel of water from a sprint; to tho house for family use. Monday morning he rose early, took a drink of water and went to the barn to do his chores. An attack of nausea soon emptied his HtooiHch. mid I tin r vns followed by severe cramps that com pelled In m to give up the work he hail promised to do that day lor a neighbor. Mrs. Heilman took water from the barrel to cook breakfast, and during the preparation of the meal a 22 months-old boy that was toddlins abont asked for and received apieceof a pancake freshly baked, which he ate. .Soon afterward he was seized with vomiting and severe paini, as Ins lather iiau oeen a snon lime before. At breakfast the father diank only a cup of colFae, after which he seemed to feel slightly better. The mother also sipped a little coffee and partook of nothing else.. The four other children ate their meal as usu ;l, and soon afterward they manifested the same symptoms their father and little brother had shown. Before madical assistance could be summoned the boy died. Theothers will probably get well . The family cannot think who would be guilty of putting poison in the water. Reliable Insurance F.
