Sheriff Burnett has the Books Many
tax Payers After the Rebate.
- They are paying taxes at the
sherins ollice. oherin .Burnett re
ceived the books Monday morning.
For the past; two weeks Clerk Wat-
ters has worked nights in order to
get the books into the sheriffs hands
at the earliest possible date. Though
a few days behind his usual record,
the books, as a result, - go to the
sheriff in Benton earlier probably
than any. other county in the state.
As was expected, many taxpayers
are after the rebate. A three per
cent drawback of the tax money
passing in over the counter is Balm

for the young ones. It is a ray of
cheer in an atmosphere that, usually,
is wholly melancholly. A gleam of
satisfaction is always noticeable as
the drawback is handed over to the
taxpayers, s. - - : "
About 25 paid taxes the firstday,
though but few knew the sheriff
had the books. It is probable that
the next few weeks will see lively
times at the sheriffs office. To
get the rebate, taxes must be paid
by March 1 5th- After that : there
will be no discount for cash. By
the first Monday in .April -half the
taxes must be paid, or a ten . per
cent penalty and 12 per cent in
terest from the first Monday in
April to date of payment will be
exacted. This is a provision of

A Pioneer Incident.
The housewives of Oregon in the
early pioneer ' days when settle
ments were sparse . and Indians
abundant had many an experience
of which the details now read like
romance. The tale here told is
said to have happened while Wash
ington was still a part of Oregon
. While a settler was absent from
home a number of Indians, with
out asking permission entered the
young orchard and hegan to gather
apples. With display of grit, char
acteristic of all pioneer women
the wife went out and told the In
dians to leave. They paid no at
tention to her protests, and without
concern, went 6n filling their bask
ets.,..--. ,; - ..
It so happened that the lady had
false teeth. She knew the awe in
which the Indians always stood of
anything smacking of the supernal
ural. As she watched the precious
apples rapidly disappearing, she
determined upon, a stratagem,
Walking into the midst of the In
dians, she dropped . her teeth into
her hands.- -The -1 natives gazed
for a moment m amazement, held a
hasty consultation, poured the ap
ples out on the ground, and hur
ried off. . The narrator says "that
they never looked back as they
moved, and that they never again
molested the brave settler s wife,
whom they thereafter held in rev
ence and awe.

The College Orators Their Papers
and Delivery as Marked by Each
- ' ' " Judge. - .
To pass upon the comparative
excellence of the orations from the
standpoint :. of " composition in the
local contest Friday night there
were three judges. A week be
fore the contest each of these judg
es received a copy of each oration,
and in the sanctity and quietude of
his own ' fireside worked out his
view- of the relative merits of each.
These judges were, Wallis Nash,
Prof. John Fulton and Rev Hum-?
bert. V - : - "
The night of the contest there were
three judges on delivery. Eachjnoted
the gesticulation, enunciation, use
of voice and rhetorical effect of each
speaker, and while the' music went
on after' the contest they retired and
made : up their verdict. These
judge's were E. R. Bryson,. Judge
McFadden 'and Rev. Frank L,.
Moore:. ' .'
To'arrive at the general average
of each orator, the place, whether
1st, 2nd, or 5th and so on, by each
of the six judges to each of the
orators-was noted, and the figures
representing each of these places
were added together. ..The orator

By Use of Sheep Dip A Solution That
. .1;Doesn't Injure the Fibre.
Bv resolution, the northwest
fruit growers association held re
cently at Helena Montana, request
ed the Agricultural college to con
tinue' investigations undertaken
last year with reference to the ef
fect of sheep dips on the wool fibre
The action of the association is the
result of a demonstration by Prof.
Pernotofthe damage done wools
by use of lime and sulphur dips of
too strong a solution.- Magnified
oictures of the wool strand show
dark spots of a burnt appearance,
Where the damage is very large it
can hi detected by the ease' with
which the strand can be broken
The request of the association is for
further investigation not only of
the lime and sulphur, but of . all
The lime and sulphur dip is re
commended as the best by the de
partment of agriculture at Wash
ington. The strength of the solu
tion, however, so recommended, is
eight pounds of lime and 24 pounds
01 sulphur to 100 gallons ot water,
The solution should be boiled until
is becomes clear, and then be siphon
ed off of the sediment which settles
in the bottom of the vessel, Thus
used the damage to the wrool fibre
by its use amounts to little or hoth
ing. It is only m the stronger
solutions, of which there is much
use that the wool fiber suffers in
