DOG PLAYS TRICK TO
GET CHICKEN DINNER
Cal Ball, a . prominent resident of
Colton, came to town Wednesday and
collected $4.60. T. J. Myers paid
him $4 and L. A. Snilth 50 cents. The
transaction had humorous aspects.
Mr. Myers, It seems, owns a hunting
dog of remarkable ability. Mr. Smith
went driving several days ago, and
the animal went along. He asserts
It followed of its own canine volition,
but Mr. Meyers declares the dog was
coaxed. He gives as proof of his
assertion that Mr. Smith tried to bor
row the animal some time ago. At
all events the dog followed along be
hind Mr. Smith's rubber-tire vehicle,
and when they passed the hopie of
Mr. Ball It "flushed- a flock of his
chickens and killed five of them. Mr.
Ball asked Mr. Smith to' pay for the
chickens, which the latter refused to
do. ' On another occasion he passed
the Ball home, with the same. dog
following him, and tbe animal killed
another chicken Again Mr. Smith
declared the dog did not belong to
him. So Mr. Ball came to tho city
and saw the owner of the dog and
the man it had followed. Mr. Smith
paid for the last fowl killed and Mr.
Myers for the other five.'
"It stands to reason," said a friend
of Mr. Myers Wednesday evening,
"thnt the dog Was coaxed into fol
lowing Mr. Smith, else he would have
driven It back when It followed him
the second time."
. Mr. Ball, having got a fair price
for his chickens, Intimated that It
waa Immaterial to him who was at
fault - '

V. J. Tooze, superintendent of the
Oregon City schools, la being urged
by many residents of the. city to
make the race for councilman In tbe
second ward. Mr. Tooze, when seen

Mr. Tooze haa made an enviable
record alnce becoming the head of
the schools. Tbe standard of all the

Is no doubt that he will do all In
