A STRANGE SENTENCE.
rHBlahinaat rur a Murdar That Wm Mer
Crual Tliau Dnalli,
In 1801 a man died In tho Catitklll
who bad boon ooiidemiiDd by ono of the
itrniigoNt aeiitdiioe on record, italpli
Buthnrhiiid wan born In 1701 and lived
In a stouo houne near Ivood. Ho wu a
man of violent temper and morose din
pottltlon, sliiniiiwl by hi neighbor aud
generally diitliked. Not being able to
gut an Ameiicun servant, ho imported a
Bcotchwoinan, aud, according to tho
uaga of tho times, virtually held her
In bondage until tier pawiugo money
bad been refundud.
Unable to endure any longer tho rug
lng temper of her master, tho girl run
away, immediately upon discovering
her abwmou tho man set off iu an angry
chase upon bis horse and soon overlook
ber. The ioor woman never reached tho
bouse alive, and Sutherland wo ludiot
ed aud arrested on the chargu of murder.
At the trial he tried to prove that his
horse had taken fright, run away,
pitched hi iu out of tho saddle aud daub
ed tho girl to death uxm tho rocks, but
the Jury did not accept tho defense, and
rJutherland was sentenced to die apou
Then oaino the plea of the Insuffi
ciency of clrcuiiixtuutiul evidence and
tho effort of influential relation- These
ao worked upou tho court that tha Judgo
deluyed the sentence of death uutli the
prisoner should lie UU yeun old.
It wo ordered thut the culprit should
bo releaxcd ou bis own recognizance,
and that, ponding the Quul execution of
his sentence, ho should koopabaiigmun't
nooso about bis nock aud show himself
boforo the judges of CuUUllloneo a year
to prove thut he wore hi badge of in
famy aud kept hi crime in mind. It
was a more cruel decision than tho sen
tence of immediate deuth would have
been, but It was no doubt iu biirmouy
with the spirit of the time.
Thus Kalpb Hutberlaud lived Ho al
ways lived alouu, He seldom spoko. His
rtjugh, imperious muuuer bud gone.
Year followed years. At each sessiou
of tho court the brokeu mau came be
fore tho bur of justice and silently
showed tho uoosu thut circled his neck.
At hut bl ninety ninth year cumo,
the time when the court hud ordered
that the utmost penalty of tho luw
should be executed. For tho last time
the uiun tot lured before the Judge's
bench, but new judges bad arisen In
tha land, uuw laws bud been mudo, old
crimes had U n forgotten or forgiven,
and there was uoue who would accuse
him or execute seuienco. Indeed tho
awful restriction thut bud bound bis
life so intimately (o the expiation of
bis crime was now legally removed.
But the spirit of self puuUhmont con
tinued, ami wheu Sutherland, after he
bod pussod bis hundredth year, was dis
covered dead, alone in his bouse, bii
throat wss fuuud to be encircled by the
rope which bud becli placed there uearly
three-quarU-rs of a ouutury before.

The Marketing Point
As the Great Manufacturing Center
of the Pacific Coast
last few years, sought the markets of other
towns. The system of macadamized roads
that is being built into all parts of Clack
amas county, will enable all the people of
this county to share in the profitable mar
ket that Oregon City affords. If, as it is
sure to do, tfce demands of Oregon City in
crease in the next five years as it has in the
past five years, this city will rank next to
Portland as a market place for

Tho factory towns of the East are noted
for affording the best market to tho neigh
boring farmers and gardeners in proportion
to the population of any of tho towns in
that section. The reason for this is that
the people of these towns have a fixed in
come upon which they can always depend,
and, as a consequence, they are liberal buy
ers, paying cash for all their purchases.

Best Marketing Towns in the State
This is proven every day by the number
