BEAR HUNTERS KILLED ELK.
NEW DEEDS FILED.
FUN AT BELLFOUNTAIN.
Member of Party Fined $25 Rliu
That section of the game laws
intended to protect elk is one which
almost everybody agrees should be
rigidly enforced, but after all, now
and then, temptation is presentsd
in such forcible way that it : over
comes the iudement. When a man
contemplates a crime, knowing
that with reasonable care he shall
not be detected, his own conscience
becomes the only deterrent, and
any person of indifferent moral
lorres and far persuasive powers
"Will easily overcome that. Thus,
when the opportunity of killing an
elk, comes to a hunter in the remote
haunts ol such game, it is not dif
ficult, in some, instances for the
man behind the Jn to justify him
self, in taking a shot. , ,
. Wednesday, Thomas Laskey was
before Justice Holgate, of Corvallis
precinct, chargad with ki''ing an
elk on or about . December ioth,
not , far distant from Mary's Peak.
Soon after that date the ; killing
came to the knowledge of Game
Wardens. Wells and Munkers. An
investigation follov.jid,wi'h the in
sult that Laskey was ar.aignrd for
the act as stated.. He pleaded
guilty and was fined $26. The fine
for killing elk -is from $25 to $500.
It is c'aimed , thrt the officer's
search for information was imped
ed by patties in the neighborhood
of the crime, the juiee of the peac;
especially being active m the at
tempts to balk the wardens. Many
families in and about Peek postoffice
are known to have partaken of the
elk meat and it is not therefore sur
prising that the wardens had diffi
culty in procuring evidence from
residents thereabout. ,
After all, according to Laskey s
statement and that of others, the
killing was in a measure, an ac
cident, It is claimed that a party
were out hunting bear. They came
upon an atjimal lying down and
without giving doe consideration
as to what it might be, Ralph
Stevens shot. To the alleged sur
prise of those present an elk heifer
bounded to its feet with a broken
leg. Then Mr. Laskey, as the
story goes, killed it as an act of
mercy. It is assumed - that this
presentation of the' case ' had some
weight with Justice Holgate in view
of ,the light fine imposed.

Johann Sleberlich is by nature sus

he appreciates a reasonable proposi

being satisfactory, the butcher felt -In

"Well, I tell you what I'll do," said
the butcher frankly. "I'll drive only

Johann studied a moment and then
his face lighted.
"AH right" he said. "Dot Is chust

, A. Brandt, in his writings on the hu
man beard, proffers an opinion direct
ly opposing that of Darwin that the
beard is a hereditary remnant of ani
mal growth. According to Brandt It is
an acquisition, so that even the occa
sional beard of women has a prophetic
significance, for as man has overtaken
woman to his whole organization so It
Is the case also with reference to the
beard. But slowly women are follow
ing, and now 10 per " cent of them'
show a stronger growth. The woman
of the distant future would then like
wise be adorned with a beard. Die
