It Willi that a year or two ago George
Radger and Orville Merrill sent for a toy
telegraph instrument and with it as a
start and an old Morse alphabet out of
a paper they began oiierationa. After
mastering the alphabet they made an
other instrument and put up a line with
odds and ends of wire using bits of rubber
belt for insulators. From this beginning
they extended their serviie till it now
includes several families in town. Their
last venture over the harln-d wire line
carries their connection some distance
out into the country. In making use of
the wue fence an old rulnler belt was
cut into bits and inserted around the
wire in the staples. Great geniuses

The Fqunll.allnn Hoard.
Saletu Journal : The State Hoatd of
Kqualiaation now in session willptoh
ahly not repeat its outrage of last year
and make a horixontal raise of any class
of property. Ust year they took the
unwarrantable liberty of adding thirty
per cent, to town lots and ten jer cent .
to real estate all over the state. They
raiseu uie wnoie Mate valuation some
thirty millions from what it was returned
by the county boards of equalisation.
The supreme court said that they had
the legal right to do so If forty supreme
court decisions said so that would not
nuke it right. It might make it legal.
Of course, the depression, one might al
most sav the destruction of values, the
past year will leave little room for the
playful fancies of the alleged tax equalisers.
State Journal: Laud in Ijuie county
is assessed too high everywhere and at
double what it ought to be with
in the limits of Eugene. This waa so
last year before the raise was made.

Every body says the war dance and
party given by the Red Men on Christ
mas night was a great success. The
hall was crowded to its utmost capacity,
the dancers hardly having room, so great
was the pressure. The braves arrayed
themselves for the street parade at A. O.
U. W. hall and came down the hill mak
ing a fine appearance as they passed
along the street. At the hall they went
through a pantonine from Coopers,
"Last of the Mohicans" in which
John Kelly was the great Medicine
man, Henry Meldrum, chief of the
Delawares ; L. A Nobel, runner for the
Huron; J. II. Howard, Uncas, and an
unknown lady, the white captive. The
pantomine was well acted by all partic
ipants and much enjoyed by the large
audience. After this scene dancing was
enjoyed till a late hour, everything being
pleasant from beginning to end. One
interesting part of the performance was
a song by Soo Sap about whom there
was no make believe business. The
net proceeds were entirely satisfac
tory to the tribe, and will probably ap
