- Thursday forenoon as Prof. Berch

single buggy they met a traction en
gine near the saw mill. .The- horse
became frigntened and wheeled about.
The buggy was so neatly . upset and
the outlook generally so dangerous
that the occupants jumped to the,
ground, fortunately without injury.
In the mix-up the horse straddled ov
er one of the shafts of the buggy and
ran some distance when he was caught
by one of the Strong boys who was
working about the mill.
SHERIFF AT BAY.
Wanted to Serve Papers but Farmer
Stayed Proceedings with
; ' , Pitchfork.
A murderous looking five or six
tined pitch fork held up Deputy
Sheriff Henderson, and made - him
stand in his tracks for a few min
utes, the other day. It was in the
hands of the Hon. Thomas Cooper,
and it looked awfully wicked as the
astonished deputy eyel itslong
steel tines, and silently hoped that
the whole five or x six of them
wouldn't be poked into his ana'
omy. The ; officer wasn't a bit
scared, but" he confessed that he felt
awfully quiet and docile while the
big fork wa on deck. v
The reason the officer was held
up was because he tried to serve a
writ of summons on Mr. Cooper.
The Continental Insurance company
it seems brought suit in the circuit
court for collection of a note that
Mr, Cooper is alleged to have given
the company about six years ago
in payment of an insurance premi
um. Deputy Henderson went to
the Cooper 'farm to serve the papers
and found Mr. Cooper engaged with'
his big fork in picking up ensilage
that his assistants with a machine
were elevating into the silo at his
barn. The machine was noisy and
the deputy motioned to Mr. Cooper
to come nearer.
But Mr. "Coopef didn't
come. He had served- his
country in legislative halls, where
he voted for Dolph when he wanted
to and voted "agin" x him the next
day if he chose, and he didn't pro
Dose for any deputy sheriff to

Mr. Cooper stood in his tracks, and
the next thine that happened was
the advance of the officer paper in
hand for the purpose of making the
Apparently Mr, Cooper knew
what the sheriff wanted. He re
fused to take the proffered : paper.
He stood grim and silent. Then
the deputy attempted to . put
the writ in the '-farmers
pocket. "Noyoudont" shouted the
ex-lawmaker, and stepping back,
he raised the gleaming fork and
stood as if to strike. It was then
that Deputy Henderson eyed the
long steel tines, and wondering how
a fellow would feel with the whole
half dozen of them in his amidships.
For some seconds the parties oc
cupied a waiting attitude each foe
man figuring on what the .enemy
'-f who is an eloquent man in speech,
resorted to reason and argument.
He pointed out the why 's and
wherefores, and perstraded .in a
silver tongued voice, 6ut to all of
it the ex-representative who stood
silent" strenuous and statue-like
turned a deaf ear. The more the
officer argued, the more Thomas
didn't propose to be made a present
of the papers.
But all things end, and so did the
affair of the pitchfork. By and by,
Mr. Cooper started to his house,
fork in hand. The officer followed
always of course out of reach of the
fork whose tines gleamed in the
sunlight like so many . bayonets
along the battle line, y- The ' proces
sion passed the yard gate, the man
with . the fork . leading the van.
Before the front door was passed
the fork was laid aside. The mas
ter entered his house and closed the
door. With the fork out of the
way, the deputy sheriff li became a
close second. He too entered the
front door, just as the ex-representative
reached for Jhe knob of
another door through which it was
his purpose to pass. With a quick
movement, the officer flung - the
writ so that it struck Mr. Cooper
in the back. "The papers are
yours, 'x shouted the ,;deputy, who
quitted the place at once, casting a
furtive glance at the fork with the
many tines as he left the premises.
The affair has been the subject of
considerable local comment, since
the facts-became known. ' Lawyers
say the service is-complete, the law
declaring that whenever the papers
shall come in contact with the per
son of the defendant that ofEciaJ
service is legally accomplished.

STOPPED BY INJUNCTION.
Hundred Thousand ' Dollar Sale of
Lands not to Transpire This
The big salex of 23,000 acres of
land in Benton County, and 32,000
acres in Lincoln and Polk is not to
take place on scheduled time. It
was to have transpired on the Ben
toa County court house steps at
one o'clock this afternoon.
. The hitch in the proceedings is
in the shape of an injunction issued
out of the circuit court of Benton,
restraining Sheriff Burnett from
proceeding with the sale. 'It was
issued by Judge Hamilton in chani
bers at' Roseburg and reached the
sheriff Wednesday. It is a tempo
rary injunction in which it is t-et
forth that . a stay of proceedings
should.be had in order to give the
defendants opportunity to show
cause ior quashing .the service and
evating the judgment. It sets July
20th as the time and the .court
house at Corvallis as the plact? - ior
hearing argument. What the out
come of the proceedings will be.
remains to be seen.
sThe lands involved in the sale
are what are known as the Coe
lands, together with the lands of
the Oregon Agricultural Company
Limited. They were sold a year
ago to the Oregon Pacific Coloni
zation Company, L'mited, a corpo
ration organized under the laws of
Minnesota, with Minneapolis as the
principal office. The seller was the
Coast. Xand & Livestock Company.
The buyer gave mortages . on the
lands as apart of the purchase price,
but defaulted in payment of the in-
Land & Livestock companv brougt
suit for foreclosure, and a judgment
for the amount was rendered at the
April term of the Benton County ;
circuit court. The amount for
which th judgment was rendered
is $101,600. Except the old Ore
gon Pacific, railroad suits, the case
is the heaviest that ever pended in
the Benton circuitcourt.
