WEED WAS UNDER AGE.
Justice Court Decides That Me Is Not
Compelled to Pay Road Poll Tax.
Upon information filed by John
Green superintendent' of streets and
collector of road poll tax for this city
T. D. Weed was tried Monday in the
Justice Court charged with refusing
and neglecting to pay his poll tax.
The defense set up that Weed was
under 21 years of age and was not
liable for road poll tax. City Attorney
George L. Story prosecuted the case
and Weed was defended by Attorney
Gilbert L. Hedges. Green attached
the wages of Weed, who clerks in A.
Robertson's grocery store on Seventh
A little over one year ago a marri
age license was issued to Weed upon
the affidavit of Judge William Gallo
way that Weed was over 20 years of
age and this affidavit was introduced
by the prosocuitou to prove that Weed
was now over 21. Judge Galloway
whs called as a witness and explained
that the intention of the affidavit
was that Weed was in his twentieth
year. Justice Stipp ruled that the
affidavit was ex parte evidence and
as such was not admissable in court.
Failing to prove that Weed was past
21 years of age, the court discharged
the defendant and dismissed the caso.

warrants endorsed prior to January
1, 1901. Also road warrnats endorsed
prior to May, 1, 1903. Interest will

Viola at tho home of his daughter,
Mrs. Elmora, Mattoon, on the 2(ith
day of July, 1903, sged 70 years,. 1
month and 6 days.
His wife died 11 years ago, while
living at his farm on the Mollalla.
Their five chili rm, .Willaid, Bert,
Harry, Nellie, and Elmora are all

ducted by Rev. J. W. Exon at Viola
Oiinetery, July 27. A large number
of friends attended the buriul ser

throughout Clackamas County, being

in the Molalla section, but of recent
years hns been living on a claim far
into the Cascade range on the Clack

noted for its hot springs and which

3tw Farmer Perklna I sed Stratex?
and a Doll Whip.
There Is a right way and a wronn
way of breaking a colt to halter. Th
latter method is described by Sewell
Ford in "Horses Nine." Blue Blazes,
the colt In the story, was own- d by e
Michigan farmer. He had been fright
eued by the first attempt to brlille him
snd had broken away. He was prompt
ly declared to be a vicious colt
"We'll tame hlin!" said Farmer Per
kins. Under his coat he bid u stout
baiter and a heavy bull whip. Tberj,
holding a grain measrre temptingly be
fore him, he climbed the pasture fence,
In the measure were oats, which lie
rattled seductively. Also he called
mildly and persuasively. Blue I'.lazcs
was suspicious. Four times he allowed
the farmer to come almost within
reaching distance, only to turn and bolt
with a snort of alarm just at the cm
ciul moment At last he concluded that
he must have just one taste of those
"Come, coltiel Nice coltle!" cooed
the man in a strained but conciliating
Blue Blazes planted himself for a
sudden whirl, stretched his neck as far
as possible and worked his upper Hp
Inquiringly. The smell of the oats
lured him on. Hardly had he touched
his nose to the grain before the meas
ure v?as dropped, and he found himself
roughly grabbed by the forelock. In a
moment he saw the' hated straps and
ropes. Before he could break away
the halter was around his neck and
Farmer Perkins changed his tone.
Now, you ugly -little brute, I've got
you! Jerk. Blast your wicked hide!
Slash. You will, will you? Yank.
I'll 1'arn you!" Slash.
Man and colt were almost exhausted
when the "lesson" was finished. It
left B'ue Blazes ridged with welts,
trembling, fright sickened. Never
again would he trust himself within
reach of those men; no, not if they of
fered him a whole bushel of oats.
How to Sell Goods.
"'You must know how to talk with a
customer so that she will buy. Is one
of the things the buyer says over ond
over again in his lectures -down In the
basement. Even when the girl Is be
hind the counter at work the buyer
will often step up and give her a hint.
For Instance, he will give a new name
to an old piece of goods. There is ev
erything in a name. He came up tc
me one day and said, 'Call that line ol
goods the Marlborough,' and It was not
long before I had sold the entire stock.
The sweller a name Is the better, of
course. Cumberland pins will sell much
better than plaiu pins even if they are
the same thing. French names aro
much-in vogue, too. und they are some
times coined. Names taken from swell
sports are also very good sellers. An
other thing, of course, which helps a
girl sell the goods Is genuine knowl
edge of thein." Leslie's Monthly.
Anmxnll.lna' Elsr Appetite. '
Perhaps the most astonishing statis
tics in Mr. Conghlau's book. "Seven
Colonies o Australasia," are those that
describe what the average Australian
eats and drinks. Apparently he hns
the best appetite, If not the best diges
tion, of any human being on the planet.
He eats every year 204 pounds of meat
which works out an average of two
sheep And one-fifth of a bullock for ev
ery man, woman and baby in Australa
sia. He eats more than twice as much
meat as the average Englishman, three
times as much as the average French
man and four times ns much as the nv
erage German or Swiss. He eats, in
addition, about 375 pounds of wheat
223 pounds of potatoes and almost 100
pounds of sugar. If he is a Tnsiuu
niait. he eats a quarter of a ton of po
tatoes in a year, a quite surprising feat.

Only twelve copies of the work are

his copy for a sum equal to $270 In
