Well Knotvn Canby Young Man
Shoots Himself and Falls
Into the ltivtr.
Last Sunday the body of Burt Bitty,
who disappeared from his home, near
Canby, on the previous Friday, was
found with a bullet hole in his boly.
When he did not return home, a search
was instituted and his footsteps were
tracked to the Molalla river; Suicide
was at once suspected, and a diver was
summoned from Portland. Coroner
Strickland held an inquest Sunday af
ternoon, the jury returning a verdict of
suicide, while temporarily insane.
Young Batty had evidently st od on
the bank of the river, when he fired the
contents of the revolver into his left
breast, so that his body would fall into
There was no known cause for young
Batty's suicide. He was 20 years old,
and an exemplary young man. He
took an absorbing interest in horticul
tural and agricultural matters, and con
tributed many articles to agricultural
papers. He was the son of George S.
Batty, formerly a prominent real estate
and railroad man of Portland, but now
manager of a trolley Lne system in
Chicago. He is the principal owner
of the big prune farm, near Oanby,
where Mrs. Batty and the children
have made their home for some time
Lo k Out for False Reports.
As the campu'gn Is about to close and
election day approaching, minors and
falsehoods are likely to be started against
our candidates in order to injure their
chances of election.
There have been rumors circulated
against some of our candidate:; as to
their being in trades with some candi
dates on the remiblican ticket. We here
by denounce such statements as false.
The citizens convention has presented to
you a ticket composed of men of honor
and integrity; men worthy of your sup
port, and we, the undersigned commit
tee, being in close touch with all the
candidates throughout, and at the close
of this campaign, can say to you that
ohere are no trades by our candidates,
nor by this committee, and we beseech
you to stand by our candidates, who are
men we can assure you of whose record
in office you will be proud.

Opinions of a Socialist.
The war between the citizens and re
publicans is raging on the Molalla.
Neither side have resorted to the water
cure, but it seems that the republicans
have captured the only saloon in town.
The socialists have donned the red cross
and are trying to rescue the wounded
and dying, and will do their best to save
Some ot the citizens candidates were
here recently and made a splendid show
ing for their side. No party could have
made a better selection of men, but what
can good men accomplish in these days
of rank, rotten corrupation. What car
Urace, Eastham, Clark, Hedges and the
other candidates accomplish without
corporation boodle, free railroad passes,
false promises of offices, pensions, etc.
The "boss" said in his speech here
that politics was a trade and he thought
he understood the trade, and we are
just foolish enough to believe him.
Yes, if good reliable men are what
the citizens are after, we believe thev
have them on their ticket, and their
cause is just. They also had an excel
lent man on their ticket here in the per
son of Jake Keuck, but he saw fit to de
cline. You people who wanted to hear and
learn just how the political trade is
worked turned out and heard Clark and
Eastham, but if you wanted to learn how
to correct all the ills that are distressing
us, you heard Fred Meindl.

Homunce of the Corinthian Column.
In the winter a youug girl had died
In Corinth. Some time afterward her
maid gathered together various trin
kets and playthings which the girl had
loved and brought them .to the girl's
grave. There she placed them in a
basket near the monument and put
a large square tile upon the basket to
prevent the wind from overturning It
It happened that under the basket was
a root of an acanthus plant When
spring came, the acanthus sprouted,
but Its shoots were not able to pierce
the basket, and accordingly they grew
around it, having the basket . In their
midst. Such of the long leaves as
grew up against the four protruding
corners of the tile on the top of the
basket curled round under these cor
ners and formed pretty volutes.
Kallimaehos, the sculptor, walking
that way one day, saw this and Im
mediately conceived the notion that the
form of the basket with the plaque
on top of it and surrounded by . the
leaves and stalks of acanthus would
be a comely heading or columns in ar
chitecture, lie from this Idea formed
the beautiful Corinthian style of capi
tal. Such, at least, Is the story as the
architect Vltruvlus told It 1,000 years
Too Much Apathy.
Couldock's company was once barn
storming through Virginia. It was at
Petersburg, and the play was "The
Chimney Corner." All through the au
dience sat In distressing silence, neither
laughing nor shedding a tear, although
"The' Chimney Corner" abounds with
humor and pathos and the company
then producing It was of great merit
for those times. Couldock appeared to
pay no attention to the apathy of his
audience until Just at the Close of the.
performance. The concluding lines of
the play are somewhat to this effect:
"You, John, are happy, and so are you,
Ellen; so am I, and so are we all. Let
us hope that our friends the public
share our happiness.''
But, to the surprise of everybody,
Couldock fell Into a towering passion
when he reached these Hues, and In
thundering tones he said, "You, John,
are happy, and so are you, Ellen; so
am I, and so are we all except the fools
that have been sitting like stoughton
bottles iu front of the footlights to
A Golf Story.
A well known Scotch "meenlster"
took up golf and despite great practice
could not succeed in passing the tyro
stage. His simple exclamations of
"Tut, tut!" "Oh, dear, now!" "Well,
well!" and the like were plain evi
dences of a perturbed spirit.
One day, when the perspiration flow

percha fom Its station on the tee, be
was tempted to Indulge In strong lan

The Sacred Done.

bone," Is at the lower extremity of the
spinal column. The Jewish rabbis
taught that it was Incorruptible, and
from It. as from a seed, the human
body would spring nt tii.' resunvctlon.
There is a Jewish tradition that the
Emperor Hadrian questioned n rabbi
as to the existence of tills bone and
was convinced Uy the production of
one by the Jewish teacher. Various
attempts were mndi- to destroy It. It
was cast Into n furnace and came forth
unconsumed; it was steeped In boiling
water, but remained unsoftened; It was
smitten with n hammer, and the ham
mer was broken. Some trace of the
former reverence for the bone is found
In the modern name.

There are many curious points about

scissors do. With these two claws
they tear the food they capture Into
fragments and feed themselves liter

Is every reason to suppose that the
claws are intended quite as much for
fighting as for eating purposes, inas
much as such powerful hands are not

HE SAVED THE SCOW
A CLEVER BIT OF STRATEGY IN AN
How a Voiiug American Engineer
Brought Hli Spirit of Invention to
Aid In Solving a Wreck Problem In
"It Is easy enough for an engineer to
nhow ability in New York or In other
big towns where be can get about all
the tools and conveniences ever devis
ed. It Is when an engineer finds him
self In the ,wilds of a jungle or up in
the mountains, hundreds of miles from
civilization, that his own natural in
genuity and invention count" said a
veteran engineer to a youngster who
had been admitted to the ranks of the
Engineers' club. .
"Down In Surinam. Dutch Guiana,
where the arrival of a sailing schooner
causes a sensation, where a m.all
steamer enters the muddy harbor once
In two weeks to tarry two hours to get
rid of Its mull and to take on a few
passengers, there was once a young
American engineer who showed that
he had the proper spirit of invention to
advance him to the front ranks of the
profession. Like all the best inven
tions, his was the simplest one, and It
was one that was widely talked about
among the profession to the credit of
"To understand the story properly
you need a trifling Insight Into Suri
nam and Its habits. Here Indians may
be seen on the streets wearing only a
breechcloth. The white population is
so scarce that all are thrown together
as If In one large family, Englishmen,
Americans, Germans, Dutchmen and
Fitenchmen all combining together and
forming clubs and society to keep
themselves from dying of sheer lone
someness. "In this primitive town there was a
man who held the splendid monopoly
of owning a large scow. That, up
there, seems a remarkably small thing
to be proud of, but the value of-even a
scow depends entirely upon where the
scow Is and what It will cost to replace
It This particular scow had been built
by American ship 'carpenters sent es
pecially from the United States at
great expense. There was not another
scow In the entire harbor, and about
all of the heavy, river work to be done
for the city and plantations and min
ing companies was done by tills one
vessel. Its loss, therefore, would have
been not only a severe one for the own
er, who had a monopoly of the busi
ness In those days.' but It would have
been little short of a national calam
ity. "One day. while th" scow was an
chored In midstream, one of those
smashing black squalls for which the
tropics are famous broke over the riv
er, and for twenty minutes you could
not see ten feet away or hear a man
shouting at your elbow. When the
storm finally abated, tlje scow was not
to be seen, and It was found she bad
gone down, deck load and all. To most
of ns there seemed about as much
chance of raising the vessel as there
would be to raise an ocean steamer
sunk In the middle of the Atlantic.
"It was about this time that the
young engineer took a hand In the
problem. He asked the dimensions of
the scow and was told that It was 12
by CO feet, and then he announced that
If the owner would provide him with
four men he would raise the scow for
a certain sum of money. The bargain
was made, though the contractor re
fused to say how he would go about
"Now, you must know that aside
from the ebb and flood tide, which al
ternate every six hours, there is also
what Is known as a spring tide. This
comes with the full of the moon, and It
has the effect of making a higher flood
tide than any during the month. The
opposite to the spring tide Is the neap
tide, and that happens at the dark of
the moon, with the effect that at no
other tide during the month Is the ebb
tide so low as It Is at that time. The
difference In the height of water be
tween the ebb at neap tide and the
flood at spring tide is considerable.
"The engineer waited until neap tide.
On that day he towed a number of logs
down the river. These be anchored
over the scow and sent men below to
fasten chains to one side of the scow,
and these be fastened to the logs on
the surface. Then be waited patiently.
As the spring tide approached he tow
ed other logs down the river until he
bad enough to make quite a raft, and
on the day of the highest tide all the
logs were tied together and fastened.
The tide rose steadily, and the more It
rose the more the raft went down un
der the strain of the pull on the chains.
At last Just as it seemed that the raft
was unequal to the occasion, It was
seen to bob up violently, and a moment
later there was a commotion In the
water, and the scow appeared. What
bad happened, of course, was this: Th
chains pulling upward on one side of
the scow tilted It more and more until
the Jeck load began to slide off, and
finally, when all the stones bad slid In
to the river, the bcow came up under
Its own buoyancy. The remainder was
simple. The vessel was towed to the
shore, where It was hauled up on the
sand, and when the water receded
holes bored Into the hull caused the
scow to empty. Later the holes were
plugged up again, and the old ship was
as fine as silk." New York Times.
