In one of tho paper mills mime not
known visited Dr. W. E. Carll Mon
day for medical attention and upon

formed as to where tho man lived, his
residence being outside the city In
Clackamas county, ho at once tent for
Pr. J. W. Norrl, the county health
officer, nnd turned the Jurisdiction of
tne caso over to him. Dr. Norrig' at
onco sent the man to his home and
placed him under quarantine, setting
a watch over the house so that there
cun be no spreading of the disease
from further exposure from this par
ticular case. Pr. Carll then vaccin
ated the friends of the afflicted man

quired to furnish a certificate from
somo reputable physician showing re
cent vaccination before they be per
mitted to go to work Tuesday nnd the

Sunday was Christmas and the

considerable anxiety lest this vicious
disease spread through the city. Dr.

precaution be taken, nnd the paper
mills have promised to co-operate In
any effort looking to the suppression
of the disorder before it boconies gen
eral. , ,
Pr. Cnrll reports that the case I a
very mild one, and seems to promise
little trouble; he admitted, howevor,
that one may contract a vicious case
from one who suffers but a mild attack.

Demented Person Leaves Wearing

Thursday night at about midnight
Mrs. Stafford, living on High street
between Fourth and Fifth, Oregon
City, heard a strange noise outside
that disturbed her. Little attention
wa paid, to it, however, but the next
morning when curiosity led to a
Word was brought to the Oregon
City police Inte Saturday afternoon
that a fine automobile was standing
deserted on a road about four miles
to the west of the city Chief Burns
secured a rig and went out and
brought the car to the city. vIt was a
handsome four passenger, car but
showed hard usage.
This proved to be the car stolen on
the street of Portland late Thursday
afternoon, nnd It Is thought that It
was taken by the yeggs who attempt
ed to rob the L. Adams store Friday
morning. It is believed the run was
made from Portland to Oregon City,
.then from Oregon City to the point
where found, near to the electric line
running from Salem to Portland, from
which place the yeggs returned to the
point of starting. No further clue
has been found to the robbers.
once started on up the hill
As soon as Mrs. Nelson and her
companion started on the men began
to follow. Seeing they were followed
the women became alarmed and be
gan to run. The Austrians continued
to follow, however, and keep close to
the fleeing women. Mrs. Hopkins,
the mother of Mrs. Nelson and the
woman they came to visit, lives at
the very top of the hill. Just as Mrs.
Nelson and her companion turned In
to the yard the leader of the Austrian
trio, and the man who put his hand
on Mrs. Nelson's Bhoulder when first
accosted, caught hold of her, threw
her to the ground and began to kiss
her. She made an outcry and
struggled with the fellow and finally
got away from him but not until her
clothes were badly soiled, her hat

In the pockets of the vest a watch
was found, attached to which was a
double small link chain, memorandum
book, order for medical attendance
from the Sheridan Lumber Co. to
Tony Bokant and signed by J. A.
Stelb counter and dated December
The find led to considerable specu
lation from the fact that no further
evidence was found to explain the in
cident. It is surmised that the man
must have been crazy, or at least tem
Yesterday a Greek appeared upon
the scene, accompanied by an Inter
preter, and laid claim to the clothes
and identified the watch. Sheriff
Beatie and Constable Miles were with
them and gave assurance that as the
Greek's stories seemed regular it was
only fair to them to deliver the clothes
and watch, which was done. This un
ravels a mystery that has agitated
the Hill people for the past week.
With a few days of pleasant weath
er during the past week, many of the
farmers of the county were able to
get some of their farm land ln condi
tion for the sowing of some of the
earlier crops, although the ground was
too wet to accomplish much. Many of
the fanners, who have resided in this
city for years, are predicting cold
weather In January and Fehmary.
Garden truck I still coming into the
markets, and there Is alway a steady
demand for this.
Large shipments of oranges for the .
holiday trade have been received here
by the merchants, and there was a
good demand. They were ranging at
retail prices from 20 cents to 35 cents
per dozen, with the Japanese at 15
cents. There is a good demand for
the latter, as they are sweeter in
flavor than those of the California
Clackamas county apples are In de
mand in the Portland markets, that
is, the preferred stock.

mains about the same as that of last
week, the wholesale price being 43
cents, while the retail price is 45
cents. There is no demand whatever
