Statesman, no one doubts for a mo

speaking, "worth its weight in gold."
But none hope for a further increase

Sheriff Burnett, Robert Johnson,
Dr Bo wen Lester and Thomas
Whitehorn left yesterday morning
for Belknap Springs, for a hunting
and fishing trip. They are heavily
armed, and that is what got three
hunters, who traveled by bicycle
through the valley recently in
to trouble. One of them was thought
to have looked like Tracy, just as
Johnson does. As they approach
ed Salem an extra guard was put
around the walls to keep them from
capturing the Oregon penitentiary

things get too warm for them, it is
the talk that they will cache their

ting him out wher the coast seems
clear, and then only for brief spells.
Also, they will have handy a suit
of female attire and a supply of
back hair. If it comes to the very
worst, after removing his mustache
they will array Robert in these,
mount him on a white mule, and
set him- to traveling homeward as

boys have confidence that in this

Clarence Koon, who arrived in
Corvallis several months ago, from
Minnesota, and has since resided
on the Hogg place, has purchased

miles east of Junction, and is about
12 miles distant from Eugene. It
comprises 301 acres, and it is un
derstood tnat trie purcnase price is
something less than 9,000. Mr
Koon is to occupy the property
this fall. He is well pleased with
Oregon, especially with the Middle
Willamette Valley, in which he has
determined to make his permanent
home. Sometime ago, Mr Koon
made an offer of $4000 cash for the
Hogg place, on which he now re-,

the answer. "I'll see that porter

NOW IN JAIL
At Eugene.TJie Alleged Murderer of Ben
Tracy How he was Taken
Sheriff Withers has arrived at
Eugene with the alleged murderer
of the late Ben Tracy. Mr Tracy
it will.be remembered was buried in
Newton cemetery near Corvallis on
the 22nd of last Slay. Sheriff Wi
thers after a long and exciting
chase, captured Heaton, alias Ray
at Wells Nevada. The Eugene
Guard tells of the capture thus.
He had located Heaton' s wife and
kept the residence under surveill
ance in the hopes that the suspect
would show himself. One day Mr
Withers was on the street when
along came his quarry and entered
a barber shop. Feeling reasonably
sure that it was his man, yet wish
ing to make no mistake, Mr With
ers accosted a restaurant keeper
ext door to the shop, with the
uery, "who is the fellow that just
I ousrht to know
nun. Ine res-
tauranter soon dispelled all doubts
in Mr Withers mind as to the identi
ty of the individual. He entered the
barber shop and found Heaton re
clining in a chair getting shaved.
Striding forward he thrust a revol
ver in Heaton' s face and at the same
time jerking the barbers robe from
over him and with the command of
"throw uo yonr hands'" "rasped
the murderer's weapon. The bar-
ber neany had. collapse trom nerv
ous fright. He jumped back and
yelled, "For God's sake man don't
Mr Withers said that he was
compelled to laugh at the barber's
antics though the situation other
wise was dramatic. His prisoner
submitted quietly, seeing that the
sheriff had the drop on him. He
loudly protested his innocence how
ever. Although a cold-blooded murder
er, Heaton does not look the part.
He is rather under-size and posses
ses good look's above the average.
OFFERED FIVE CENTS
Pound for Dried Prunes of
Coming Crop- Offer Refused,
W W Bristow was in town Mon
day, returning from a visit to the
Green Peak fruit orchard. The
prune crop there, is a good one
third and may be a one half crop.
The yield is fully as much as the
present drying capacity can handle.
The number of acres of- prunes in
the orchard is 110. The dryer is a
double 10-tunnel Kertz, with a ca
pacity of perhaps 300 bushels per
day. The dried product of the or
chard last year was 100.000. Bartr
lett pears in the orchard promise a
very fair crop, but the apples are i
In the .; Excelsior orchard, the
crop of prunes is reported better
than last year. The . latter, how
ever was a light crop. The or
chard is owned by Wilhelm & Sons
who have already refused an offer
of five cents per pound for their
best dried prunes this fall.
The reported shortage of prunes
all over the world seems to be ma
terializing. Late indications are
that the world's crop will be so
so far short of the usual that bigger
prices will be obtained for the
coming crop than have been - seen
in this country in 1 years. Un
fortunately for the growers in the
vicinity of Corvallis, most of their
crops are likely to be considerably
below the average.
