. "My father has been - farming
some Indian land on the reservation
for two or three years and has made
me go out into the fields to plow
and do other kinds of work, and
came down to Walla Walla to stay
with him this fall after harvest and
wanted himto give me moneyenough
to go and visit my mother at North
Yakima, but he would not.do it, so
I went back up to the reservation
on horseback, and after staying
with friends a short time, conclud
ei that I wtitrid raise some money,
and that is why I took the horBes
and outfit. .-.

Grant's Pass, Or.,Oct .28 A fea
ture of the recent investigation
ma je into tie Jennings' murder
mystery . of Granite Hill, mining
camp, to solve the question of - who
murdered N. M.-Jennings, the aged
wood con tractors - is damaging to
Jasper Jennings, eon. of the murd
ered man. - The boy has said .that
his sister committed the crime, but
it has been found that the blood
stained tracks over the ifioor of the
room in which the old man - was
killed, aid which lid over the door
step and across' the " yard, were
tracks of a man. They could not
have been made by 'Dora Jennings,
whom Jasper says killed her father
because she hated him.
To account for the tracks the' boy
declares his istsr wore bis shoe3
over her own? that the blame for
the crime might be laid at Jasper's
door. Bat the girl denies all knowl
edge of this.Jasperaaye bis sister stole
into the cabin where he and a com
panion slept late at night, stealing
both his rifla and bis ehoes. Bet
the door of the boy's cabin opens
with difficulty, and its ruaty hinges
screech loudly. It seems improba
ble that the door could have been
opened without one or both of the
boys hearing it. '
Interest in the case is growing,
and there is a change in the feeling
of the general public toward the
girl. She will eay absolutely noth
ing concerning the crime, while the
boy talks freely, though his confes
sion tends toward shifting the blame
upon his sister.

though all of his life has been

The condition in St. Petersburg
is that cf on9 fairly under siege and

that Illustrate how it can be done Your Opportunity to get
a Piano No Home Need be Without one.
Cut rates on pianos I You have
heard of cut prices on groceries,
but cut prices on pianos, -how is it
possible you ask. That is lust it.
Before Buch 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 large quantities, getting out
of 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 epecial cars which
saves big sums on freight charges.
Then it means the selling of pi
anos so excellent and satisfactory,
that the public demands them.
We have accomplished just these
things. We buy tor' the largesjt

Coast, in Portlarid, Astoria, Salem,

We buy the best pianos that
money can secure. If we went all

thousands of dollars to spend on

the west side of the river, near the
railroad bridge. Tuesday he cross

turning up to Wednesday noon, a
searching ; party was" organized
which continued the hunt until
Thursday. It appeared McMillan
had undertaken to cross the river
at a point where, the water is 2O
feet deep, bordered by a bluff bask
of loose gravel. The supposition, is
that, upon entering the water his
horse turned a summersault, send

This morning a successful enort
was made to recover the body. A

With these words two highway
men, their faces covered withmaBk6

the Pacific Hotel, at 10th and Quim
by streets, ' at 7 o'clock last night.
While the taller of the two covered
the occupants of the room with two
revolvers, compelling all to line up
against the wall,ythe shorter robbed
the money till behind the bar of $6

up at the ludicrous appearaHce oi
the excited man, and he was laugh

huge joke of a barroom full of men
being held up. The uproar in the
dining room frightened the high
waymen, not, however, until they
had robbed the till and taken' Mr'.
As the laughter died away la the
dining room, the man who was cov

revolvers commanded hi3 compan
