but you would prefer seeing the shoes anyway, for the receipt of a photo is never so pleasing as
the visit of a friend. Just so in this case. A picture and shoe talk on paper isn't as satisfactory
and convincing as an examination in the store. ::::::::::

A Record Breaking Trip
Oue day we reached Rickey's sta
tlou oil Wild Hut-He creek. During
the night It moderated und com
menceu to huow. j he next day In a
driving Htoriu.oti our way to Swift's
station (now Pendleton) we K"t lost
and at night, by sheer Kood luck,
came over the hill to Rickey's n'dn
from where we had started In tin
morning. The nest morning It wan
still thick and Dutch John, the
driver, refused to start. I had a
pocket compass with me, and a
teamster named Iilanco, who was
working for Swift, the proprietor of
Swift's station, offered me a saddle
mule f I would guide hi in across to
the station. In less than half an
hour, with my light treasure in a
pair of cantlenas or saddle lings that
are carried on the pommel of the
saddle, we were on the way ami by
noon were eating dinner at Swift's.
Haley's Dulse stage had just gotten
In and reported a great Chinook, or
west wind, blowing on the Blue
in oun talus and that large quantities
of snow had already gone. This
meant a flood and I bad to cross the
L'matllla river, thirty miles away,
that night or wait the subsidence of
the river. We drove the distance In
record time and I Jumped aboard of
The Dalles stage at Franklin's 12 mile
house, Haley's stage going on to
l'matllla landing, and barely got
over the bridge In time, the water
across the bottoms running Into the
stage lied. We put up at Courtney 's
place oue and a half miles from the
river and the next morning fouud
ourselves marooned on an Island
where we stayed for two days before
we got out.- We made John Day
river the seventh day out, but the
bridge was gone and so could not
get the stage over. From the Boise
stage and also from l'matllla land
ing I had picked up two chests with
over -'50 pounds of treasure. No con
veyance was to be had there so I
made a hand sled and got help to
haul it to the top of the John Day
mountain, where I was fortunate
enough to find a horse and hired It
to pack the twenty-five miles to the
Deschutes river. Both bridges were
gone, but I fortunately secured a
small boat nud went to Celllo, the
east end of the O. S. N. Co.'s railroad
14 miles from The Mullen, where I

fouud an engine just ready to start
to town, and with a sigh of relief I
climbed aboard, my troubles over
for this time at least. That was a
notable flood, never equalled since,
With but one exception every bridge
in the state east of The Dalles was
wan lied out, anil the few settlers
that were In the country, on the
creek aud river bottoms, were totally
ruined. I had been fourteen days on
the trip aud had traveled every day
but two.
Bandits On Blue Mountains
Bandits were getting busy on the
Blue Mountains about this time and
several hold ups were reported. A
large amount of treasure, $.'10,000 had
accumulated at Baker City but the
agent was afraid to send It down. A
gang of toughs were keeping tab on
it and the agent was at his wits end.
He was afraid to send It and afraid
to keep it, but a brilliant scheme
struck him. Having a large quantity
of furs to send to Walla Walla he.uu
beknown to anyone, did the treas
ure up In the bales and started it out
by freight teams. A few days after
he loaded the chests with washers
and sent them on their way. On the
west slope of the Blue mountains the
stage was promptly held up. One of
the lead homes was shot and the
team bunched. Wheu the bandits
found they had been tricked their
rage knew no bounds. The driver
was accused, and Justly too, of hav
ing been the cause of their failure.
The driver had become suplclous aud
had posted the agent, aud came near
losing his life thereby. The bandits
finally let him go but ordered him off
the mountain road. Two weeks
later I got this identical treasure.
The bandits still had their eyes on It.
The two leaders, after the hold up,
came to Walla Walla aud waited,
and wheu I took It out they followed
me for three days. At the 12 mile
house 1 picked up ? 20.000 more, mak
ing then over $50,000 In nil. The last
lot came from Boise by Haley's
stages and had collected at l'matllla
landing. In this case eternal vigi
lance was the price of life. Not an
Instant were we off our guard. The
driver was the same man who had
teen ordered off the mountain and
knew the men. We both had revol
vers but that terrible shot gun was
the saving clause in the deal. It was
"Star Brand Shoes"
never out of our hands day or night.
At meals one stood guard while the
other ate. My revolver lying" by my
plate while I ate, the bandits were
seated on the opposite side of the
table. This was at Willow creek. As
I seated myself at the table I said,
"Gentlemen, you will pardon me. I
have to take precautions." They
were gone when we came out of our
room In the morning aud I expected
an ainbiiHli going out of the Willow
creek canyon. We had a dead ax
wagon anil a nuniU-r of sacks of
grain. I made a fort out of them
and got liiHlde aud felt quite safe. As
we cleared the top of the gulch we
saw the two men ride away from
the very spot where I had expected
trouble. We saw them no more.

Crop Conditions Good
iH'spite the heavy weather of the
past liiti Inquiry Into crop and
stock conditions show that losses
have not been so general as was
feared. Some stock was lost on the
range but the percentage Is not large.
Prospects In the extensive grain
districts of eastern Oregon are re
ported to be excellent for a bumper
crop, (iraiu prospects In the Wil
lamette valley are said to be some
what less satisfactory. Because of
the unusually heavy snowfall In the
mountains during the past winter
there will le plenty of water for Irri
gation purposes this year.

A Well Paid, Fiery Job That War a
Man Out In Fifteen Years.
The man who stood at the lever bad
a story that Is common all over Amer
ica. Ten years before be bad been a
peasant lad in a dull little village In
Ireland. Drawn up and along by the
emigrant tide, be bad drifted to Chi
cago, and here In the works be had
caught the true spirit of the place,
wblcb Is to strain every nerve and
rise. He bad risen. Ills pay was $90
a week. He worked every night from
6 p. m. to 0 a. m., twelve vigilant
hours. Watching those three mam
moth tanks, by the tints and hues In
their columns of flame be could tell
just when to wrench back a lever.
This he did over a hundred times In
the night, and if be missed by so much
as thirty seconds be spoiled thousands
of dollars' worth of steel. He never
lo bold tbls Job Is to Jam tbe
strength of a lifetime Into fifteen
years at $90 a week. Tbe man recog
nized tbls as a matter of course, only
qualifying It by tbe remark that be
knew of a redheaded Scotchman at
Homestead who bad held It seventeen
years before breaklDg. That his whole
life bad been changed; that tbe little
Irish village, tbe misty bog and tbe
hovels were back in another age, on
another planet all this he felt vague
ly and summed It up, with a twinkle.
"Shure," be said, "it's a terrible quick
pin this ould wurld Is aftber takln'.
But be loved tbe fiery Job. called the
buge tanks "me darlln's'' aDd said be
would rather be what be was than be
president Ernest Poole in Every
Is the Most Frequent, and After
That Comes Blue.
It is entirely appropriate, of course.
that red, the war color, should appear
so frequently in tbe flags of tbe vsx!
ous nations. Of the flags of tbe conn
tries of the eastern hemisphere there
la only one that of Greece which
does not show tbe martial color. In
tue western Hemisphere, however, we
find several standards not showing
red. Tbe flags of the Argentine Re
public, Brazil, Nicaragua, Guatemala,
iruguay and Uonduras contain no
in tbls country there Is no red In
tke union Jack or In the flairs of tbe
secretary of the navy, tbe admiral of
tbe navy, the rear admiral senior In
rank and the rear admiral Junior lo
rank. Red appears In the pennant of
the rear admiral second In rank and
tbe pennant of the revenue marine.
The United States mall flag also shows
red, aud that color is also found In
the pennants for tbe vessels of tbe
lighthouse service, the yacht ensign,
tbe ensign of tbe revenue marine, the
president's and the secretary of war's
The flags that are almost entirely
red, except for tbe devices shown
thereon, are those of Austria-Hungary,
Egypt, Morocco and Japan. Tbe flag
of Turkey Is practically of a solid red.
After red the prevailing color In flags
la blue. Llarper's Weekly.
Something Wrong.
The balloon pilot landed In the little
backwoods village nnd told the loiter
ers the thrilling story of bis escape.
"And st one time." he related, with
dramatic force, "I was In a storm and
sweeping over a vast desert. There
was nothing to do but throw out sand
and prepare for the worst. Gentlemen,
at one time I felt as If I bad lost my
head and gone plumb crazy."
The oldest Inhabitant slowly lighted
bis pipe aud drawled, with a sarcastic
"You must have been plumb crazy,
bub, to throw sand on a desert. Didn't
you think there was enough sand
there already ?" Chicago News.
