Farmers are busy cutting grain.
About all the fall wheat has been cut in
this part of the country. Some thresh
ing has been done, and wheat is not
yielding as well as was expeeted. Both
fall and spring grain has been damaged
by aphis and a small white worm that
worked in the joints of the grain.
The Shaver-Thomas Threshing Com
pany started out this morning. Their
first setting will be across the Molalla
on Dickey prairie.
John Colo will start his new threshing
outfit in a short time.
Herman brothers have moved their
engines from the sawmill and will also
commence threshing soon.
Bagby Bros., who recently purchased
the sawmill from the Herman Bros.,
will put in a new stationary engine, and
will be ready to begin making lumber
in a shcrt time.
The hydraulic that the Bagby Bros,
put in to furuish water for their sawmill
engine, works to perfection. They now
have all the water they need.
Carl Bagby, who hd his scalp badly
lacerated by coming in contract with the
circular saw, is rapidly improving and

Should the patent device that is to
some extent taking the place of the
teazle in the manufacture of woolen
goods prove a success and the culture of
teazles be discontinued, it will be a
detriment to this community, as Mr.
Sawtell and Mr. Gregory pay out hund
reds of dollars each year to the people of
this community to harvest and prepare
the teazle for market.
Not long ago two boys from this place
was over to the Molalla river, and hear
ing something that sounded to them like
a Mast they began to investigate and
found a party of young men and boys
that are well known here, but live across
tfie river in 'the Dickey prairie neighbor
hood. In the river was dead fish float
ing, while others were seen dead in the
bottom of the stream. There has been
more or less blasting going on all gun
mer along the Molalla river, but recently
it has become a general thing. The
river is lined for miles with dead and
decaying fish, and unless the guilty
parties cease operations along that line
they will undoubtedly have a chance to
either pay a fine or go to jail. You that
are guihy lake warning for their will be

This wholesale slaughter of our fish must
be stopped. If only such fish could be
killed by blasting that wejwanted it
would be different, but thousands of
young fish, especially trout and white
fish are killed, also lots of fine trout are
are killed and Bink to the bottom and
cannot be recovered.

SERVING JAIL SENTENCE.
H. S. Adler Doing Time for Taking
Clothing from Selling's Store.
H. S. Adler, a clothing salesman of
good appearance, is now serving a 60
days' sentence in the county jail for
deviating from that safe, straight and
narrow path that leads on to an honor
able career. A couple of weeks ago
George Herron, the salesman in Selling's
store, went to Newport, accompanied by
his family, for a short vacation. Adler,
who for a short time had clerked in the
Moyer clothing store in Portland, was
employed to work during Mr. Herron's
absence. He secured a room at. Mrs.
Shaw's house, where Demitv Sheriff
J.E.Jack, also rooms. Mr. Jack be
came suspicious of Shaw's actions, and
kept a close watch on him, and on Mon
day discovered that Adler had 14 pairs
of pants and other articles in his room.
A warrant was issued for his arrest, and
in the meantime Chief Burns and Sam
Selling, with the authority of a search
warrant, identified and recovered th
clothing. Adler was arraigned before
Justice fcchuebel Tuesday morning and
pleaded guilty, and on the recommenda
tion of Deputy Prosecuting Attorney G.
B. Dimick he was sentenced to 60 days
in the county jail. Had Mr. Selling
been inclined to push matters, it is prob
able, that Adler would have eventually
landed in the penitentiary.
There is some doubt as to Adler beine
the offender's real name, as Sheriff
Cooke has letters in his possession,
taken from the former's pocket, post
marked at Tacoma, and addressed to D.
C. Griffith, Oregon City. Had not
Deputy Sheriff Jack brought matters to
a focus Monday, Adier would have been
safely out of the city by another day, as
Mr. Herron returned from the Beaaide
during the afternoon.

Alma M. Hackett asked for a decree of
divorce from Erwin 0. Hackett on the

order that plaintiff have the custody of
the minor child until September 20th,
when defendant shall have the custody
of the same from that date until said
suit is settled at the November term.
Both plaintiff and defendant are re
strained from taking said minor child
outside of the state. It was also further

county clerks office the sum of $50 to be
given to plaintiff.

People who visit Wilhoit Springs com
plain of the poor condition in which the
grounds are kept, the lack or con
veniences that a few dollars would pro
vide, and the poor arrangements about
the springs. The pioprietor does not
seem to make any effort to make the
visitors' stay there pleasant. An enter
prising man in his place, and with the
great attraction of the springs, would
draw hundreds there every year, would
not run the place like a farm, would
have more liberality, and would be more
accommodating to guests. Canby Inde
