SWINDLED THE STARRS.
They Gave a Bogus Doctor a Note for
Forty Dollars and he Skipped. "
A confidence man, giving the
name of F. Dusch, worked his
swindle successfully in Benton re
cently. Mr. and Mrs. . W. W,
Starr of the vicinity of Inavale are
his victims to the amount of 40.
Whether others in Benton r have
been similarly swindle! :is . not
Dusch's method - was unnual.
He played himself off as a drctor,
able to cure all chronic diseases.
He claimed to be connected with
a Portland medical concern. He
called a month ago at the Starr
home and made the family believe
he could cure Mr. Starr who is
badly afflicted with stomach trouble I
On his assurances and promises,
a note for $40. due in five months
and signed by Mr and Mrs Starr
was given the fraudulent medi
cine man In return, he gave them
a contract, signed : 'F. Dusch" in
which ;t was agreed that Mr. Starr
was to be treated and cured of his
trouble. After securing the note,
Dusch left, saying that he would
send medicine within a few days.
That was the last seen of him by
the Starrs and up to a few days ago
no medicine had been received at
the home. It is supposed that the
note was sold by Dusch, possibly
to some one in Corvallis. The
Starrs have not learned what the
swindler did with it.
Dusch worked the swindle on
May 14th. That was a day or two
before the dosr show and circus
was in Corvallis. , He dropped in
to Corvallis, from whence . nobody
knows." He hired a local livery
man to drive him out in the coun
try. They went to the Inavale
postoffice, and there the , bogus
doctor inquired if there was any
one in the vicinity that was suf
fering with a chronic disease. He
was told that Mr. Starr was a suf
ferer, and thither the healer " went.
. At the.Starr home he immediate
ly made his errand known, and
protested his ability to cure the
invalid. He talked very smoothly,
and those who listened came to be
lieve. He said Mr. Cummings of
Linn county, was a patient of his,
and that he was now, nearly cured.
He diagnose4 Mr. Starr's malady
at catarrh of the stpmaeh. ' This
in particular helped to satisfy the
family, for Mr. Starr's ailment fit
ted the healers description of the
It took but a short" time to con
clude the swindle. . To lielp things
along, Dusch carried a case of sur
gical instruments, all of which
were significantly displayed. He
also brought out a printed form ; of
contract, purporting to be the reg
ular form in use by the St. "Louis
Surgical and Medical Dispensary of
Portland, Oregon. .. ., When the
terms were agreed on,, the blank
form was 'filled in, and Dusch sign
ed it, receiving in exchange the
note for $40, signed by; ' Mr. , -and
Mrs. Starr. . ' -:" : ' ; :': .
" After concluding the business,
Dusch was driven back to Corval
lis. f Before' leaving "he told the
Starrs he would probably cash the
note in Corvallis and inquired at
which place the family banking was'
usually done. He was referred to
the Willamette Valley : bank, but
Mrs. Starr who was in town thei
other day to look the matter up,
learned cm inquiry that , Dusch did
not cash the note there. On the
day of the circus. a son in the
Starr family saw Dusch at the Oc
cidental, and i talked with him.
The boy said his father was much
encourged over the prospect of
being cured of -his malady. ? Dusch
replied that, that was nice. That
day the swindler left town. ' ; !
Dusch is a rascal. - It has been
learned that heis riot connected with
the Portland establishment that he
claims to represent, though form
erly he was so engaged, He has
swindled people in various parts of
the Willamette Valley, and when
last heard of, was working his way
through the southern part of the
state towards California. A war
rant is out for him at Salem, where
he operated his game with more or
less success, It is possible that he
has other victims in , Benton coun
ty. The best way not to be swind
led is never to do business with
people who have to travel to get

DOWN MOUNTAIN SIDE.
Big Log Dashed, and Man was in Front
. of it His Injuries not Serious.
Stanley Roberts, of Corvallis,
miraculously escaped with his life
in a thrilling accident that occur
red the other day. He is employ
ed in the logging camp of the Ben
ton County Lumber Company on
Greasy Creek, On the ridge above
where he worked and perhaps 200
yards distant, : other loggers had
cut and peeled a huge lug that they
were preparing to send down the
mountainside. The log was 24
feet long and three feet in diameter.
It is the custom to send the logs,
after they are properly . prepared,
down the mountain side on a sort
of a slide, down which they go end
first, end sometimes with great
velocity. f . -
Just how it happened that this
log got started without sufficient
warning for Roberts to , get to a
place of saiety is not "known, but
that is what occurred. Roberts
was directly in its path, and a
warning shout from the men above
came too late for him ? tp reach a
place of safety. It moved with
tremendous velocity, heading
straight for the threatened logger,
who realized the imminence of ,his
danger. Whether to jump tc the
right or to the left was a perplex
ing question, for the log itselfmight
veer slightly one way or the oth
er from its course and catch him.
He made a desperate effort, but
suddenly saw the log coming
straight at him and right at hand.
As a last hope he dropped suddenly
fiat on the ground. V
This movement saved him, but
only by the breadth of a hair. The
end of the timber grazed his body
and ploughed its way deep into the
earth just beyond him and the big
log came to a sudden stop directly
over the prostrate man, who was
held firmly under it, . A watch in
his hip pocket was crushed and
broken. The pressure of the log
was so heavy as it passed that Rob
erts was so badly bruised that, af
ter extrication from his position,
he was baought to town, where he
is now on the road to recovery.
