Thomas Leese of this city is
one of three or four investors who
have become owners of the Dr.
Bayley mansion at Newport The
original cost of the building was
$11,000. It is palatial in all its ap
pointments, though the ravages of
time and the elements and lack of
attention have dealt roughly with
it of late. A complete ' renovation
and repair and the possible addition
of more facilities, all to be followed
by an opening of the place to guests
a3 a fancy hotel, are among rumors
afloat at Newport. How much of
fact there is in reports is uncertain
as Mr. Leese and his associates
have probably not taken the New
port public in their confidence. Tire
property was purchased of Richard
Williams, the well known Portland
attorney, at figures said to tfe about
as much as the place is worth for
investment purposes though small
compared to the original cost.

A Double Shuffle and its Seqoel-
Hobo Lad's Good Luck.
They were a negro, two white
men and a boy all hoboes.- The
boy looked to be 12, but he was in
reality, 16. Officer Osburn sight
ed them early in the evening, and
to make sure that they should - do
no mischief during the night, he
ran them in.
The light shone" dimly on the
bare walls of the jail. From, in
side a pair of feet beat a musical
tatoo on the floor. There was al
most a melody in the measured
steps. The boy was dancing while
his comrades looked on. The steps
of the dancer attracted the attention
of a passerby, and by that token
got the lad a night's lodging, a
warm supper, a new suit and .em
ployment.",, " ,
1 he passerby was W. D. De
Varney. He turned to look inside
to see the dancer. He saw the boy
a boy by the way with a good
face, a iace that seemed out of place
behind steel' bars. He saw also
the negro. Once, DeVarney lived
in the South. He carried : away
some of the Southern spirit with
him, and the sight of the negro and
white boy in jail together was gall
to him. , He hunted up Officer Osburn.
The officer was willing, and the
telephone man soon led the lad
away from the jail. Then a boy
face looked greedily over the abund
ance of food before him in a warm
restaurant. He ate, and ate, and
ate. DeVarney waited, and waited
and waited." After a long time the
supper was finished.
T hat night the boy slept in a
warm bed at Hotel Corvallis. Be
fore he went to bed he slipped ov
er to the jaiL "Where have you
been," Mr. DeVarney inquired, as
he returned. "Over to the jail.
"What did you go for?" "Why.
you see, I had a bag of candy and
I knew the men hadn't anything
to eat, sol took it over to- "them."
The boy's name is John Raleigh
His home is at- Seattle. He has
been for some time in San Francis
co, working at lithographing. He
got nine dollars a week and it cost
him $7 for board, lodging and
laundry. He determined to go
back home, but only had $2 to
start with. It took two months to
tramp it from San Francisco to Cor
vallis. Before he went to bed . af
ter leaving the jail, the boy wrote
a Jette-.- to his motaev . at,- Seattle,
informing ber of his whereabouts
and of the fact that he", was . well.
