After the jury in a Texas case had
listened to the charge of the court and
had gone to their room to deliberate
upon the verdict, sone of the twelve
went right to the point by saying:
"That thar Pike Muldrow orter be
convicted an gen'ral principles. . He's
bad as they make 'em." ::
As the hum of approval went around
& weazened little juror said, "I heerd -j

A Peculiar Ornament.' '
Berlin has probably one, of the most
peculiar ornaments for a reading room
that has ever been seen in a similar
position In a civilized country. Thi3- is
a gravestone which stands, large and
massive, in one corner of a small room.
It Is not only , a gravestone, but is in
Its legitimate position at the head of
a grave. The history of its location in
the "house is interesting. It was tiBt
put up in the honse, but the house'was
built around the stone. Its .original
position was In' the burial grounds In
the churchyard at St. Hedwig's.

The fact is, almost everybody has a.
weak spot somewhere. DeSth and dis
ease are always looking for weak spots.
If your stomach or your hver won't do
its proper .work, if your body fails to
get its full nourishment from the food
you eat, and your bnyri loses part of the
sleep it ought to have, no matter how big
your framcand muscular your limbs may
be, you will give out; disease will find the
weak spot, and nature will give way. .

As court was convened this morn

Bennett informed the court that the

Cut rates on pianos! You have
heard of cut pi ices on groceries,
but cut prices oa pianos, how is it
possible you ask. That is just it.
Before such a thing could be effect
ed there must have been a combin
ation of very unusual conditions.
In the first place it means buy
ing'in largequantities, getting out
ol the. small way of doing business.
It means the cutting out of every
useless and unnecessary expense.
It means the shipment of pianos
without boxes in special cars which
saves big sums on freight charges.
Then it means th1-. selling of pi
anos so excellent and satisfactory,
that the public demands them.
We hav accomplished just these
things. We buy for the largest
and busiest stores on the Pacific
Coast, in Portland, Astoria, Silem,
Pendleton and Eugene, Ore.; Sari
Francisco, Stockton and Oakland,
Cal.- Spokane, S'sstt'e and Walla
Walla, Wash.; Boise and Lewiston,
We buy the bast pianos that
money can secure. If we went all
over the world with hundreds 6t
thousands of dollars to spend on
pianos, it would be impossible, ab
solutely impossible to get better pi
anos than we have to sell, eiiftply V
because we have the best that mn-'
ey-can buy, ChickeriDg, Wetwr, ,

We have placed the selling of ur

Nw York,' Oct.- 13-That five
persons have been cured of canc;r
at the Flower hospital by the use
of radium coatings on celluloid
rods insertect": into . the diseased
Uparts, was the substance of a pacr
read last night by Dr. William H.
Diffenbach, United States delegate
to the International Medical Con
ress at the Hague before-the Home-
opathicT. .Medical w Society- of. .the
county of JSew-Y-oxkM In only one
of six cases which he treated, Dr.
Diffenbach said, his effort, met with"
defeat. In that case the disease was
far advanced. ,. ' . - . ?
Dr. Dieffen bach described -his-method
of treatment in detail. It,
consists " in -dipping celluloid or
hard rubber rods in solutions of
ealt of! radium. ' These rods are
then inserted in incisions made- in
tumors. The tendency-of the radi
um, he said, was to destroy the tis
sue. " There", were some hopeless
cases, where the growths- were
spread over large areas.
Protessor Hugh Liebsr,- - of this
city, has been experimenting in in
jecting radium into the tissues with
out the use of the rods or sheets of
celluloid. He said that three esses
of tumor . aad a cancer had been
treated with remarkable success.
ThiB marked a distinct advance in
medical knowledge.- Though, at

Thirty Persons Irjured Water
, Sweeps Vessel aod Floods the
- Lower Passenger Deck
New York, Oct. 14. Five " lives
are known to have been lost and
more than thirty persons injured,
some of them Eeriously, on the Cu
nard Line steamer Campania last
Wednesday, when . a gigantic wave
rolled over the steamer and swept
across a deck thick with steerage
passengers. ' So sudden was the
coming of the disaster and so great
the confusion which attended and
followed it that even the' officers of
the steamer themselves were unable
today, upon the vessel's arrival
here, to estimate the full extent of
the tragedy. r It is posEible that the
five persons known ty .ba missing
from the steerage may -not consti
tute the full number of dead.
John Graham, of Milwaukee, was
one of. the passengers" washed over
board and lost. The others who
are known to have lost their lives
were two Irish girls and- two other
girl-?, 1 " ;
' The Campania was plo wine c! ng
under full headway last .Wednes
day afternoon.-A heavy quarter
iog Eea was running, butj the wea
ther conditions were far from, un
pleasant, and the big boat's decks
were crowded with passengers. Tbe
steerage deck was covered with
merrynoakerp, and there was noth
ing to indicate the approaching dis
aster, when suddenly the big steam
er lurched to port and scooped up
an enormous sea. The wave board
ed the steamer about midships, on .
the port side and swept clear across
the tteerage deck, completely filliag
the space between that deck and
the deck above, and carrying every
thing with it. The steamer's side
was buried, and passengers on the
deck above, the steeraga. were sub
merged lo their waiets as the im
mense volume of water rolled sft
and then surged forward. All tae
cabin passengers on the upper
deck succeeded in clinging to sup
ports while the waters 6urged
around them, and were saved, but
tbe unfortunates in the eteerage
deck found themselves utterly help
less. ...The irresistable rush of wa
ter, sweeping toward the forward
part of the ship, carried everything
before it, Nettings," heavy railings
and other obstructions which had
been arranged near -the railings to
prevent passengers from- being
washed overboard, served their pur
pose only ia part. So great wts
the volume and force of rushing
water that a door in . the rail wis
smashed, and through this opening
five of the helpless ones who had
been . caught by the wave were
swept to their death.
Others were dashed against the -rails
and other like obstructions and
escaped death,, but many -? of them
received severe Injuries. One young
woman was terribly" injured, both
her legs being broken at the thigh,
