s Charge Against John Dob Dis-
ED.-oa the blotter of the Unitea
SJtfe Court a day or twd ago appeared
af entry. ''United States va. John Doe,
dmlssed." The motion lor dlsmiBsal -wag
de by a former officer of tho court, and
1 was hunted up to find out who John
pa was. He said this was what he haa
ten anxious to find out for two years,
Ut had finally given It up and hid the
fcse dismissed. Over two years ago two
jrunks with peculiar Ipcke, which arrived
fn this city by rail from Puget Bound, at
tracted th,6 attention of a Customs In
spector, who forthwith sefeed them.' Oh
inspection It was found that one con
tained 100 flve-tael cans of opium, and tho
other 80 similar tins. The seizure waa
kept quiet in the hope that the owner ot
the trunks might turn up and Inquire
about them. He had evidently kept him
self informed in regard to the where
abouts of his property, which he had
hoped to smuggle in, and knew better
than to ask any questions and thus betray
himself. The opium was sold and the
proceeds handed over to Uncle Bam, and
an information was lodged against John
Dbe for smuggllpg opium. The case haa
remained on the- books of the court for
over two years In the hope that some day
John Doe might turn up, but as he never
put In an appearance, the authorities
finally concluded to dismiss the case.
Yamhill Loess Repaired. The repairs
and extensions of the slopes and dam at
the locks in Yamhill River, In charge of
captain iLangfltt, of the United States
Engineers, have been completed. Assist
ant Engineer Dai'id P.. Ogden, who has
been superintending the work, has re
turned to tho city and says that the
works, aro now In such condition as to
make practically Impossible a recurrence
of such damage as was caused by the
flood of last Winter. About 60,000 equate
feet of surface of the slopes on the sides
of the locks have been paved and rlp
rappsd with rock, and the dam has been
extended 55 feet Into the east bank. The
wing wall at the head of the look has
been extended about 25 feet Into the west
bank, and the banks above the rlprapplng
have been resloped at a lesser angle and
seeded to grass. It la thought that with
these Improvements tho works will be able
successfully to resist future floods in the
raging Yamhill. Boats are now running
regularly between Portland nnd McMInn
ville, up one day and down the next, ana
are loaded" to their full cabaeltv with
gxaln. The farmers of that section are
much pleased with the regular service.
HuNTswoMA Shot a ear. Will H.
Rowntree, traveling agent of the Honey
man Hardware Company in the sporting
goods department, accompanied by hla
wlfbt visited Spirit Lake, Idaho, a short
time ago. Spirit Lake Is one of the fa
vorite Summer reoorta of the people of
Spokane and affords excellent fishing,
when the fish are in the humor, and there
is good hunting in the Neighborhood.
Many of the newspaper men and other
wealthy oltizens of Spokane have Sum
mer residences on the ehores of this lake.
EOme say the lake was gh'en Its name oh
account of the vast quantity of spirits the
Indians living about It used to consume.
Others believe the name arose because
the spirits of the aforesaid Indiana haunt
the lake While Mr. and Mrs. Rowntreo
were hunting for ruffled grouse along the
shore of the lake, their pointer dog "put
up" a bear; that Is It scared the bear,
which climbed a tree. Mrs. Rowntree shot
the animal, and her husband was so proud
of her aklir with a gun that he has sent
the bear's skin to a noted Eastern taxi
dermist to be mounted. Hereafter the ani
mal will stand in the hall of the Rowntree
residence, holding a receiver for cards.
Growth of Monet Order System. An
abstract of the principal operations of the
postal money order system of the United
Btates for the fiscal rear endintr Juno so
190L has been issued by James T. Mfetoali, j
Bupenmenaent. Tne growth of the sys
tem as shown by his figures Is something
nonderful. The number of money orders
issued during tho past fiscal year was
86,834,267, an increase over the previous .fis
cal year of 3,671,217. The aggregate In
crease in the amount of issues was 53S,
D4S.658 01. The numbei1 ot money order
offices In operation is: DomoStlo, 30.5ZJ;
international, 4182. The fidelity and ac
curacy of the employes of this system is
evidenced by the fact that during the
past two years thoy have paid 68,293,876 or
ders, amounting- to $330,674,997 64, with ottly
the trifling loss of W&jfc from Improper
payments. The losses of the system from
fire, robbory. bad debts, etc, have
amounted to only J1E.016 83. Tho average
amotlnt of eaoh order issued was: lio
jnentic, 5?77; International, JIG M. Since
Its organization the system has Issued
474,446,104 orders, amounting to 54,2S6,7S8.-

Halloween Prahes. Th people of
Portland generally have been congratu
lating themselves on the quiet manner in
which Halloween passed. This is protn
ably to be attributed equally to tho pre
cautions taken by tho police to prteervd
order, and to the storm which raged that
evening and made it unpleasant to b
abroad. Several cases of wanton deyiltry
are however reported. A heavy truck and
a covered wagon, apparently an expresa
or delivery wagon, were pushed over the
side of a bridge on Marshall street Into tha
ravine below, where they still He, and

into trouble. It la a pity he can not be
detected and properly punished. Somo
thlog more in the nature of fun was the
action of a gang of boys In another part
of tho city, who secured a policeman's
unlrorm, helmet and star, and dressing the
tallest of their number In the rig sent
,nim out to terrify, other gangs of boys
In that district. They had lots of fun
seeing their "Impersonator" chasing boys,
and the impersonator was enjoying him
self highly till a real policeman took in
tne situation and began to chase the im
personator with the Intention of arrest
ing him for Impersonating a policeman.
This brought tho fun to a close in a
Paid Debts ot Drunken Husband,
A rather pitiful affair took place in a
broker's office the Other day, when a
woman called with her husband, a rail
road hand, to pay money to the amount
of $90, which he had borrowed from the
broker at "s'teen" per cent per month
and had dissipated in drinking and gam
bling. She said she had paid elmllar debts
contracted by him more than once be
fore, and gave him and the broker notice
that she would not pay any mote debts
of tho kind. The woman had money of
her own Which the dissolute, drunken refc-
robate was drawing on in this way dad
squanderlhg, for a man who Is drunk
stands a poor show of winning when ho
gambles. The wdman -with tears in her
eyes said ho was a good man and a kind
and loving husband when he was not
drinking, but as soon as he had leisure
froqi his work he went off and got drunk.
There are scores of men In every pro
fession oT whom one frequently hears it
said: "He is a talented man, and would
be an ornament to his profession ir he
did not drink, but he is always drUhk."
Duck Hunters shoot in hard Luck.
Duck hunters have been shooting in hard
luck this season. The' continued fine
weather and the low stags of water in
the lakes and pohds have beeH unxavor
ablo for them. As the best of the shoot
ing Is Over by Christmas, there are not
many Sundays left In Which good shooting
"may be looked for. The late rains have
brought up the water In tUe likes, and
the1 stormy weather has Drought lri a gOba

evening as the gldaming mas eetUinf down
over tho landscape and Mount Hood,
glowing in the Idst rays ot the setting
sun, was the only bright or beautirui
thing to be seen, several large flocks or
ducks were spied passing over the city,
winging their way south, bound, as an
old hunter said, for the fields of tenddr
young wheat up the Willamette Valley.
as yesieraay was a nne day, it Is proo
able that the dUfck hunters had another
poor day's shooting. Duck hunters -say
tho climate Is really becoming undeslr

The oratorio is one that naturally Iondd
itself to men's rather than to w'omen'fl
voices in tho solos. Nevertheless there
is some very beautiful and effcotlve work
for the soprano. Mr. Boycr was fortu
nate In having May Doarborne Schwab
for this. She introduced the element of
dramatic fervor. Accompanied by tho
chorus" aha threw a wild witchery of de
liriousness into the words, "Let us eat
and drink, for tomorrow we die. Fetch
wine, and WO will All ourselves with strong
drink, and tomorrow shall bo as this day
and much more abundant"
The contralto, Mrs. W. A. T. Bushong.
then broke in with a sober call to duty

Tho soprano, in a recitative, descriptive
of the famine that spread over the land,

praise the Lord," ending in a heavy fugue

liant piece of work. They sang with a
confidence born Of careful training and
Unswerving faith in their conductor's
ability to meet every .difficulty. Thorough

body of tone that might easily have been
mistaken for that of three times tho num

we believe a new era for tha better fjt
dawning and that the state is ort the eve
of large arid rapTH growth. This is coming
as thft result of residents giving mbreint

People who complain of falling hair as

Of dandruff, which Is caused by a pestif
erous parasite burrowing up the scalp as
It digs down to the sheath In which the
hair is fed in the scalp. Before long the
hair root Itf shriveled up and the hair
drops out. If the Work of the germ Is
not destroyed hair keeps thinning till
baldness comes. The ohly way to cure
dandruff Is to kill the germ, and until now
there has been no hair preparation that
would do It but today dandruff is easily
eradicated by Newbro'a Herptcide. which
makes hair glossy and soft as silk.
