"What Happened to Ctciost. Per
sons la the vicinity of Morrison, and
Second streets Saturday evening, during
a heavy shower, were startled by two
reports like pistol shots following each
other in quick succession, and by seeing
a bicyclist peacefully wheeling up Morri
son street plunge headlong to the pave
ment. Many at first Imagined that the
man had been shot by an anarchist or
some other assassin, but he struggled to
his feet in an instant. It was then dis
covered that the rear wheel of the bi
cycle had collapsed, or been blown to
smithereens. It was in es many separate
and distinct parts as one of the wheels
of the deacon's old "one-hoss shay,"
when they concluded to go out of busi
ness. Some thought a bomb or dynamite
cartridge had exploded under the wheel,
but on examination it was ascertained
that the rubber tubes -with which the
wheel was tired had exploded, completely
shattering the wooden rim. The rider
was not seriously injured, and hastened
to run off his machine on the remaining
wheel, and get under shelter as speedily
as possible. His opinion of things that
run on wind has been changed for the
worse.
To Ikpkotb ITirst Street. There is a
scheme on foot to have First street im
proved from. Madison to the bridge across
the Marquam Gulch, where the lines of
the City & Suburban and the Portland
Railway Company are now held in check
by the frail condition of the bridge,
which is not substantial enough to allow
of cars being run across it. Property
owners along the street mentioned are
taking a lively interest in the proposed
improvement, and without doubt a ma
jority of them will sign the petition be
ing circulated. Residents on First south
of Sheridan are taking steps to organize
an improvement club, with the intention
of securing the cxtention of one or Doth
the railway lines which now end at Sher
idan street. First street used to be the
principal thoroughfare in South Portland,
but since the Holladay car line ceased to
be operated it has been neglected, and
has fallen to the rear. Improvement is
the order of the day at present, north
and south, east and west, and there Is
a rustling of dry bones. Great changes
are being contemplated in the way of
Improvement to streets, sidewalks and
buildings in the near future.
Poplar Trees Cot Down. At the cor
ner of Fifth and Flanders streets, a row
of large poplars on both streets are be
ing removed, with the usual concomi
tants of smashed sidewalks, etc The
trees were planted In front of eome little
old-fashioned homes many years ago, and
have completely outgrown and over
shadowed the buildings, and tend mater
ially to hasten their decay. There are a
number of tows of such poplars in that
neighborhood, which have long since out
grown their beauty and usefulness, and
all of which, now that a spirit of improve
ment is beginning to awake In that long
neglected section, are likely soon to dis
appear. At the corner of Fifth and
Burnslde streets is a little old-fashioned
house, standing back from the street.
The yard in front is taken up by a pair
of huge old poplars, which make the lit
tle old house look like 30 cents. "When
Fifth street is extended through to North
Fifth these will disappear before the
march of improvement.
"W. E. Hurd Goes East. W. E. Hurd
and wife left Saturday evening for New
York, to be gone until March. Mr. Hurd
is part owner and manager of three
groups of mines in the Granite and
Sumpter districts, about 40 -miles from
Baker City. He goes East to make his
annual report to his partners, and to
consult with them about future opera
tions, and business generally. The group
of mines of which Mr. Hurd is in charge
are the Chelan, PotosI and Smuggler. He
has had from 20 to 30 men employed all
the year and has expended about 525,000
on development work. Several hundred
tons of ore have been shipped to show
the quality of the work and to produce
some $8000. As the cost of hauling and
shipping ore to the smelter Is too great
the company s now awaiting for a smel
ter to be put up near the mines.
Second Crop op Pears. Specimens of
pears of a second crop of this season
grown in the orchard of County Re
corder S. C. Beach, at Peninsular, have
been left at The Oregonian office. The
tree blossomed for the second time in
July, so the pears have had ample time
to mature. They are of medium size and
fairly ripe, but contain no seeds, and
only faint indications of any core.
Whether this is characteristic of the va
riety is not known, as Mr. Beach has not
furnished samples of the first crop. In
years where there is a long fine Autumn,
second crops of raspberries, strawberries,
apples, etc, are not uncommon, but It Is
seldom that any of these freaks are 60
well grown and matured as Mr. Beach's
pears.

HUNTERS WERE HUNTED.
"When They Attacked a Stranprc Ani
mal, They Were Well, Worsted.
It was a sapient Frenchman who first
noted the difference between hunting and
being hunted by the tiger, but few sports
men in these days of breech-loaders,
smokeless powder and automatic shell ex
tracters, have any experience In the last
mentioned style of hunting. Most wild ani

of Its strength, takes the middle of thp

Charley Potter and Herbert Walker
better known as "Doc" while on thel-"
way to their duck lake over on the Co
lumbia bottom a few days ago, had an
encounter with one of these animals. It
was about 4 A. M on a very dark, foggy
morning, when one could hardly see be
yond the end of his nose. As they were
climbing the narrow trail over a hill,
their dog bayed the animal In the brush,
and began barking furiously. A moment
later he was yelping "bloody murder,"
and snorting and howling as if the life
was being strangled out of him. Potter,
who was ahead, called the dog to heel,
and he came tearing out of the brush
with the animal, which looked In the fog
as big as a bale of wool, following close
at his heels. The dog rushed back be
hind the men, and the animal followea
after, deliberately and calmly. "Load
your gun, Charley, load your gun," yeiiea
Doc, "he Is coming right at us."
Potter threw down the sack of decoys
he was carrying, and slipping a i-ll

the animal, which continued to advance,

Potter fumbled in his pouch for another
shell, but before he could get It into
his gun, the animal had opened fire on
him with the ammunition furnished it by
Nature. Doc dropped his decoys and gun.
and ran for his life.
The skunk had climbed over Potter's
sack of decoys, and was about to walk
over him by the time he was ready to
shoot, and the charge of shot tore the lit
tle animal all to pieces, and made a hole
in the soft ground big enough to bury it
in, beside loading the asmospnere wltn
an efiluvlum so dense that It could have
been cut In blocks with a sDade.
Then Potter followed Doc, and they
compared notes and congratulated them
selves that they were alive.
It was quite daylight before they were
able to recover their decoys, and pro
ceed to the lake, and put them out They
sat in their blind several hours, and al
though there were plenty of ducks flym

Finally ther tumbled to the fact that
they were "skunked" In more ways than

attend to business, and even then people
who came In would ask what It was that

they meet a skunk they will leave the
road clear for him.

H. McMillen, who had Interviewed the
owners of the Lone Fir Association, said
that he had been given assurances that
the ground required for the monument
would be donated, and that there would
be no trouble from that source. The only
question to be .settled was how much
would be required, it was ascertained
that the park block In the cemetery. In
which public functions arc he'd, is ISOxiZfi.
The association desires 50x30 in about the
center of ihls block, with the perpetual
use of the walks extending to it. The
association decided that the ground se
cured for the monument shall be deeded
to the City of Portland for a soldiers
Monument. On completion of the mon
ument, it w:ll be unveiled and turned over
to the Mayor and the City of Portland.
After extended discussion. It was de
cided not to make an active canvass until
after February 1, owirg to the deniunds
being made at present on the liberality ot
the public for the churltab'e Institutions-.
It was ..-ought that by that time all
these various demands will have been sup
plied. However, the canvassing commit
tee was Instructed to accept any subscrip

be made till after February 1.
It was reported that tevcral of the G.

Chairman Pratt reported that the women
of Sumner Relief r'orps had raised over
$100 for the monument. Subscriptions to
the amount of $100 had .also been secured

considered encouraging, and every mem
ber of the committee feels confident that
enough money can be raised to erect a
creditable monument and have It ready

ground will be dedicated with an appro

Ambulance Driver Travels Through
"Wind and Italn on Fnl.se Alarm.
The troubles of an ambulance driver
were forcibly Illustrated by an incident
which happened Saturday. Relatives of
a young colored man. who Is sick with
consumption, telephoned to the ambulance
driver to take the patient to a hospital.
"The price will be $2, madam." said
the driver, politely. A surprised exclam
ation came over the 'phone, and a voice
said that the family could not pay any
thing. "Walt a minute," said the driver.
He consulted his boss, told thu npenllnr
j circumstances, and received authority to
nam the patient free of charge. This
was telephoned.
So the horses were attached to the
newly-washed ambulance, and they tore
away to South Portland In the mud and
rain. Horses, wheels and harness were
freely bespattered with mud. The surprise
of the ambulance driver can be Imagined,
however, when he drove up to the pa
tient's home, to find the County Hospital
ambulance already there.
"I'm after a consumptive patient," said
the driver of the private ambulance.
"So am I," said the t:ounty man.
On Investigation Jt was discovered that
both ambulances had been called to the
house for the same patient, and both
drivers were wrathy. In the middle or
the discussion a colored woman appeared
at the door, and said sharply: "What do
you white folks want?"
j "I've been sent to take the young man
to tne hospital," said the driver of the
private ambulance.
"Well, he ain't a-goln' today; so there,"
said the woman, closing the door. There
was nothing to do but to drive back
again, and scrub the horses, and again
wash the mud off the ambulance. In
quiry revealed the fact that the patient
was not afterward taken to the County
Hospital.

VICTIMS MOURN FOR HOPE
POLICE FIXD NO- TRACE OF MYS
TERIOUS PROFESSOR.
Mystery of tie Magic Circle and the
Vanished Thousands Remain
Unsolved.
Come, gentle Hope, with one gay smile remove
The l&stlnc sadness of an aching heart.
Thus sings the poet and thus sing the
people who mourn the untimely departure
of Professor C. Emerson Hope. Where
there's life there's Hope, but that's the
question which Is troubling the ones false
ly left behind, and also the police. Nei
ther Professor Hope nor his satellite, the
Star of Mystery. Professor Allen, has left
a single vestige. The other poet who said
that true Hope is swift and flics with
swallow's wings must have had In mind
the true and only Hope.
Only one woman has sworn complaint
against Professor Hope. She is the one
who gave $1000 and a diamond ring to be
put In a circle of good luck. Another
woman Is said on good authority to have
consigned an equal sum to the circle or
good luck. Circles of good luck still cir
cumscribe the money, and the women are
wrestling with the old problem which
has troubled philosophers ever ulncc
thought began the solution of the circle.
If ever anybody can discover the square
of the circle, perhaps the two unfortu
nate women will be able to reach the cen
ter of the circle of good luck. A third
woman was on the point of encircling $300
In the magic charm, but she fortu
nately confided the secret to her husband,
who tipped the matter off.
The police are secretive about their
knowledge of the psychic professors, and
Information Is elusive. It seems probable
that more people than are known have'
been victimized by the magic circle.
Women were the especial dupes of the
two gentlemen of black art.
A man who had watched, them closely
during their sojourn here said yesterday
that he believed the gentlemen were In
other mischief than In telling fortunes
and casting the magic spell of the cir
cle. They never would tell where they
spent the night, and wiien either was
questioned he would reply: "Oh, I have
a room down the street."
The White Mahatraa, or Star of Mys
tery, had a slouch hat which he used at
night, and a heavy overcoat, both of
which partly concealed his face. The
man who volunteered the information yes
terday said he would not be surprised if
the professor had been engaged in hold
up work.
Meanwhile the problem of the day is
still the mystery of the circle.
Who can solve It?
ORIGIN OF NAME "CHAMPOEG"
C. O. Pelland Snyn It Wan "Champ
l'ooltch" Field ot Roots.
At a celebration held In Champoeg, on
the Willamette River last Spring, a con
troversy arose In regard to the moaning
or derivation of the name of that place,
which was not definitely settled. C. O.
Pelland, an old settler of that section,
has furnished The Oregonian with his
ideas on this matter, which are doubt
less correct. Mr. Pelland Is a Canadian
Frenchman, who arrived on French Prai
rie in 1S37. He stayed for some time
with F. X. Matthleu, and having had
a good education In French, he soon
picked up a fair knowledge of English,
and also of the Jargon used by the Indians
in doing business with the whites in those
days.
He says that across the river from
Champoeg lived an old Hudson Bay man
named McKinley, and back of hia place
was a butte or hill, where a root or bulb,
something like the "camas," of which the
Indians were fond, grew in profusion.
Every Fall the Indians, women princi
pally, dug large quantities of these roots
for Winter. He dors not know what the
real name of the plant was, and now It
Is all gone the pasturing of sheep on
tho ground exterminated It," root and
branch." so to speak. The Indians called
the root, "pooitch," or that is about as
near the name as the English alphabet
c.n spell It, but there was a sort of gut
terlal or "kluck" sound In the word that
cannot be reproduced. Now "Champ" in
French means a field, and the place where
these roots used to grow was naturally
"Champooltch," or the pooitch field.
For instance. If one Inquired where a
certain Indian woman was, and was told
"Champooltch," he would know that sne
was over In the field where the "pooitch"
grew. This soon became the name ot
the landing and town, and at first was
spelled In several different ways, but fin
ally crystallzed into Champoeg, which has
persisted as the name of the town.
Mr. Pelland has resided continuously
on French Prairie for about 44 years, and
Is CI years of age, but his cheeks are as
ruddy and his eyes bright as ever, and
there Is scarcely a gray hair on hte hcarl.
He is possessed of a fund of information
in regard to the names given rivers and
places In the early history of this re
gion, whl.h It would te well that he
should write down for the benefit of fu
ture generations.

majority of them having1 been sold during

the beautiful home of Mrs. Trimble, on

RING WOItM AND DANDRUFF.
Ther Are Each Cauccd by a Pestifer
ous Germ.
Ring worm and dandruff are somewhat
similar in their origin; each Is causefd by
a parasite. The germ that causes dan
druff, digs to the root of the hair, and
saps its vitality, causing falling hair, and,
finally, baldness. Without dandruff there
would never be baldness, and to cure dan
druff It Is ncecssary to kill the germ.
There has been no hair preparation tnat
would do this until the discovery of
Newbro's Herplcide. which positively
kills the dandruff germ, allays Itching
Instantly and makes hair glossy and soft
as silk. At all druggists. Take no substi
tutes. There Is nothing "Just as good."
