' It fs amazing that human hand
should administer poison in a dead
ly dose to Mrs. Stanford. If noth
ing else should have saved, her four
; scoreand more of years ought tohave
'given her immunity from the pois
oner s purpose. At best, she had
hut a few brief years to live. Time
is swift and ' fate relentless with
: those who" have attained four score.
- What she could have done in those
few future years to make a human
1 beine begrudge them- to her . can-
not be conceived, y The world loves
"" to see the aged live in peace and
" plenty. In this case an : unknown

TEE APPROPRIATION BILL,
It is hot unlikely that signatures
enough will be' available to secure
- a referendum votejon the appropria-
- tion bill. Nine-tenths of the people
nf Oresron wanted some v of the
. o. -
Normal schools abolished. By rea
: son of the practice- of ."stand-in,"
'.""'Hie legislature voted down Miller's
. bill to abolish all. but one, and vot-
Ved down all other . bilfSv providing
' for even partial relief. The legis
'- lature refused to let the Normal ap-
propriations stand on their: merits,
well knowing that - the governor
-would surely have. : interposed his
'' eto. As a rebuke more perhaps,
to the attitude of , the- legislative
vmsrjority than actual , objections to
tfie Normal appropriations, it will
not be surprising if the referendum
. be invoked and the whole appro
priation bill be vetoed by the people.

TWO DEAD SOLDIERS.
And the Attention They Attracted.
Two "dead soldiers" attracted
wide attention on Main street for
a time yesterday. They were two
immense whiskey barrels with
nothing left inside but the smell of
what had been there. They rested
on the pavement in front of Wues
tefelt's late place, while in process
of removal to the railroad station
for shipment to Portland. Their
immense size was a part of the sec
ret of the great attention paid them.
Their excellent workmanship was
also a part of the attraction. But
more than all were they objects of
interest because these wet relics
rested on a main thoroughfare of
this dry town. All forenoon a
crowd stood round them and joked
about the situation. Henderson
remarked that it was worth a nickel
to smell the bung hole, and some
body else claimed that a passing old
soaker actually shed tears at the
sight of them both ' empty. All
guessed at how rriticb each barrel
would hold, and Jake Blumberg al
lowed either would hold 145 or I50
gallons. Jake was about tefll enough
fqrTus mouth to reach the bung
holeiC6fiie"56dy said that was
how Jacob was able to figure out so
closely the capacity of the barrels,
which - subsequently turnedoui to
be 1 53 gallons, The statement was
that each barrel was ' worth 19" or
THE BOY WON.
Back His. Mother's Farm, Which Law-
: yers got as Their Fee for Getting ;
Her a Divorce.
-A decision just handed down by
Judge Hamilton awards to a-son
a Benton" county farm that two Sa
lem lawyers, cot as alee for a di
vorce they secured for the boy's
mother, from his father. The case
was tried at the November term of
the circuit court, and by reason of
the outcome, as well as the unusual
character of the facts, is extremely
.The. plaintiff - in the case was
James Hamilton, of Salem, aged
21 years. - The farm which he won
back by the lawsuit, is a part of the
Belcher donation claim near the
Jesse Foster" place, and occupied by
.himer Dinsresr The vouna: man s
mother was Anna,. Hamilton, who
died m.March-,.-1901, and his father
was John Hamilton. The complaint
alleged that in December,. ; 1 901,
the mother secured the services of
Wi II, tHihnes , and : Webster
Holmes as attorneys to take charge
of her suit for divorce against herhus
band John Hamilton. The divorce
suit provided for a proper business
settlement between Mr. and . Mrs.
Hamilton, and in January, 1901, a
decree : of, divorce was granted.
The; Beaton county farm which
comprises 419 acres and is valued
in the complaint at $2,600, was the
wife's portion of. the - comtminity
property as provided for in the.di
vorce decree. .The farm, -on the
day the divorce was - granted, An
na "Hamilton conveyed by .deed to
Webster Holmes, as trustee,?: the
consideration being $500. At that
't'me James Hamilton, was .but 18
years of age.. . Three months later,
the .mother died at Denver, ; Colo
rado. . ; r : " , '
In the present suit, James Ham
ilton alleged -in his complaint that,
since attaining his majority, he has
made demand on W, H. Holmes
and Webster Holmes for return of
the farm to him: but this they re
fused to do, claiming that the farm
was fee they received for conduct
ing the divorce case for Anna Ham
ilton. Hamilton , alleged that $250
would have been a reasonable .fee
for legal service in.;the divorce case
and that he was willing that Wj
H.Holmes and Webster Holmes
should be allowed that amount.
He asked the court to give him
proper deed to the Benton farm,
free of the mortgage of $700 which
had been put on the place since it
was deeded to Webster Holmes. A
copy of the deed by which the moth
er conveyed the property to Web
ster Holmes appeared in the com
plaint.. ; - , ;'",' .
Tbe decision bf Judge Hamilton
finds on every point for the boy. It
orders the farm restored to him,
and gives Webster Holmes 30 days
in which fo free the place,- from the
mortgage of; $700, It - provides
that the sum of $250 shall be paid
the Holmes for their services, in se
curing the mother's divorce, and
orders them to pay ; the costs and
bisbursements of the present law
suit. . . ', :-? ;;..J ;-- "

TEE JUDGE'S MACHINE.
He Type Writes His Letters Now
That is, When (he Public Doesn't
Police Judge Greffoz has bought
a new typewriter and is learning to
use it. The public takes an inters
est in his progress, and keeps him
much confused. He was in the
midst of writing a beautiful sen
tence the other day when a friend
knocked it all out by remarking
that writing at such a speed might
set the machine afire. I,ater, he
got his thoughts collected and was
in a fair way to finish the eloquent
sentence when a lady stopped to
say that a bicycle rider had knock
ed her son off the sidewalk, and
that the man ought to be arrested,
though she didn't know his name.
By this time he was so flustered
that his fingers persisted in'hitting
two keys of the machine at a time
and - that angered him so 1 his
thoughts wouldn't operate. Thenr
two small boys dropped in, watched
operations a minute, and looked at
one another and grinned. The
larger one pointed his forefinger
at his own forehead and then chuck
ed his thumb in the direction oi the
judge, just as the latter looked up.
"Get out of here" shouted the
judge, and the "kids" got. In
twenty minutes, it was estimated by
those who stood by and watched
the judge, '.hat he managed to add
seven or . eight words to his
letter, and they figured that , the
epistle might be completedat the
same rate in about a : week. His
new machine is a Remington, and
the. climax came when a man came
in and, after watching operations
for a minute," remarked that a Rem
ington machine was not worth a
whoop anyway. -'Why didn't he
buy some other machine. Then
His Honor lost patience. Barring
the fact that he is a (Godly man, he
would have sworn in .great wrath;
for. he kicked savagely at his fav
orite dog as it passed and stared
wickedly at the new by-stander as
the machine was covered and laid
aside with a bang.
