3211 Miller Cuts His Throat Rather
Than Die -by Inches His Faith
ful Hound Guards Body
for Ten Days.
ROSEBURG. Or., July 6.-SpociaU
Pinned at the bottom of a mining ditch
by the roots of a huge fir that had toppled
upon him. the body of Eli Miller, a lone
miner, 70 years or age. was -found last
Monday on his claim. 13 miles northeast
of Myrtle Creek. A faithful hound stood
watch ovor the body, and. though nearly
dead from hunger, showed his teeth
bravely when, ten -days later, a neighbor
miner discovered the decomposed remains.
A great gash in the throat and pocket
knife smeared -with blood lying .beside the
remains, showed that Miller had commit
ted suicide rather than starve to death.
Mute, evidences show that at first the old
miner had made a brave struggle for lib
erty end life. When the' great stump
crushed into the ditch. Miller was fas
tened to the earth by both less. So great
was the Impact that the legs wore mashed
to a pulp.
"With great pertinacity the victim
hacked away at one root manacle with a
dull old grubbing hoe and succeeding in
freeing one leg. His strength evidently
failed him through loss of blood, and a
quick slash of his knife gave him surcease
That the accident happened Jun 25 is
belii-ved to be proved, not only by the
condition of the body, but by the fact that
in a diary kept by Miller the last entry
made was June 24.
The discovery was made by - Green
Hearn. who lives three miles from Miller's
mine. Hearn had an appointment to meet
Miller at the former's place Sunday. Upon
Miller's failure to eppear. Hearn went
over to the old man's mine the next day
and found him dead.
Immediately after discovering the body,
Hearn went to Myrtle Creek and notified
the authorities. A party of men, under
direction of Justice of the Peace "V. V.
Hurst, went to the 'scene of the accident,
secured the body and then brought it to
Myrtle Creek, where it was buried. Xo
Inquest was held. Justice Hurst consider
ing such proceeding unnecessary.
Miller's only known relative is a niece,
who Is living somewhere In California.

tance to the state, for it not only secures
the. publication of the ."tate reports by
tne Government, but gives the state
work the same standing as that of the
Government. There will be complete
harmony between state and United States
The information that this desirable ar
rangement has been made was received
today, when Engineer Lewis also re
ceived notice that the Government has
set aside $2500 for topographic and 52500
for hydrographic -work in this state. The
state appropriation of the same nums
was made conditional upon the United
States approprlatihg money for the pur

therefore became, available today.

CITIES TO CONTROL "UTILITIES
Judge Whitson Predicts Early Con-
summation of Project.
SPOKANE, July 6. A sweeping predic
tion of general municipal ownership was
made this morning by Judge Edward
Whitson. of the United States Circuit
Court, in his annual address as president
of the Washington State Bar Association
Judge Whitson said:
"There is a growing sentiment in favor
of ownership and control of all public
utilities, including government ownership
of railroads. That this sentiment Is so
cialistic in its tendency, if not socialism
in a modified form', is quite clear. That
the agitation will continue until all pub
lie utilities in use In the cities shall have
pansed under the control of the munlcl
palities to. be operated as public concerns
cannot be doubted."

Evades Law Officers.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. July .-(SpecIal.1-A
petition for a writ of habeas corpus, in
which the kidnaping of his minor daugh
ter Is charged against Manuel Ward by
his divorced wife, Carrie I. Ward, -of Port
land, was granted by the Supreme Court
today. The writ orders the child. Mil
dred L Ward, placed In the custody of
the Sheriff of Thurston County until July
10, when the proceedings In the matter
shall come on for further hearing In the
Superior Court of this county.
The Issuance of the writ was without
immediate result, however, for when the
Sheriff -attempted toierve it he found that
Ward and a woman companion, who had
been stopping In the Hale block, in this
city, had flown on the early morning boat,
taking the child with them.
The petition upon which the writ was
Issued is sworn to by the divorced wife of
Ward, and In It she allege that last Janu
ary. Ward, who had previously beon liv
ing unlawfully with Julia Hcaviland. came
to Mrs. Ward and expressed repentance
for his acts and mistreatment of her, and
gained admittance to the plnc where sh

cunning, deceit and force, abducted Mil

and had retained custody of the child
against her will ever since: that June 23
the Circuit Court of Polk County. Oregon,
issued a decree divorcing the Wards and
a'warding to the wife the custody of all
children, declaring that Ward and Julia
Hcaviland were living In adultery, and
that Ward was not a fit. and proper cus
todian for any of the minor childrden.
The petition related that Ward left the
jurisdiction of the Oregon court "to avoid
compliance with the decree, and that the
petitioner believed he would attempt to
evade the ordrs of the courts of this
state. Owing to the temporary absence of
the Judge of the Superior Court of this
county, she asked 'the Supreme Court to
Issue a writ of habeas corpus. The writ
was Issued, as above related, and made
returnable In the Supcrlor'Court July 10.
It appears that yesterday Mrs. Ward lo
cated her former husband and his woman
companion In Olympia. and that she de
manded the custody of th child In ac
cordance with the decree of the Oregon
court. Ward refused to give up the daugh
ter, and. evidently fearing an application
to the courts of this state, arranged to
leave town. The writ was not Issued until
It o'clock, at which time Ward, the Heav
Iland woman and the child had left the
boat at the Tacoma dock and disappeared
In that city.
The police of Tacoma and Seattle were
notified to look out for the trio, and If

Just the sort of spring remedv yon
need to make rich, red blood, and cure
that lassitude and feeling of nerve
exhaustion. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery bears the stamp of pub
lic approval and has sold more largely
in the past forty years than any other
blood nurifier and stomach tonic. The
refreshing influence of thi3 extract i3

the blood the vital fires of the body
burn brighter and their increased
activity consumes the tissue rubbish
which has accumulated during the

make up an alterative extract of roots,
herbs and barks, without a particle of
alcohol or narcotics, which purifies the
blood and tones up the stomacb and
the entire svstem in Nature's own way.
The "Golden Medical Discovery" "is

Medical Discovery strengthens the
stomach puts it "in shape to make
pure, rich blood helps the liver and'
kidneys to expel the poisons from the
body. If you take this natural blood
purifier and tonic you will assist your
system in manufacturing each day a
pint of rich, arterial blood, that is
stimulating to the brain and nerve3.
The weak, nervous, run-down, debil

experience at this time of the year is
usually the effect of poisons in the
blood; it is often indicated by pimples
or boils appearing on the skin, the lace
