SHOOTS WIFE AND
TAKES OWN LIFE
John Carlisle Draws Gun With
out Warning When Recon
ciliation Is Refused.
WOMAN'S WOUND NOT BAD
Divorced Laborer Fires Bullet Into
His Brain After He Is Satis
fied That , Victim Is
Bead or Dying.
John Carlisle, a laborer 47 years old.
hot and slightly wounded his divorced
Rife. Mrs. Ida Carlisle aged 43. and
then fired a fatal bullet into his own
brain at 10:15 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, after the woman had refused to
shake hands with him or to give him
any hope of a reconciliation. The
tragedy occurred in the front hall of
a. rooming-house conducted by Mrs.
Carlisle at 246 Jefferson street. There
-were no eyewitnesses although several
persona heard the shots and were on
the scene an instant later.
Mrs. Carlisle received only a slight
wound., although her escape from
death was a miracle. Carlisle fired at
her headpoint blank from a distance
of four feet. The bullet, of .32 caliber,
struck a fraction of an inch to the left
of the center of her upper lip and
shattered two teeth, which doubtless
deflected the course of the missile,
passed out of her left cheek, imbed
ding itself In the wall. She was felled
by the force of the bullet's impact
but arose immediately and was able
to call for help and later to walk to
the police patrol in which she was
taken to St. "Vincent's hospital.
Believes Victim Is Bead.,
Seeing his wife fall and doubtless
believing that he had killed her. Car
lisle placed the muzzle of the revolver
to his right ear and killed himself
instantly. But two shots were fired.
Carlisle's body was taken to the Dun
ning Undertaking establishment and
his brother, C. A. Carlisle, of Berkeley,
, Cal.. notified.
Ruth Carlisle, the 7-year-old daugh
ter of the couple, was in a room just
off the hall when the domestic trouble
that has long prevailed between fath
er and mother came to such a horrible
climax. The child saw her wounded
mother and dead father and was near
ly hysterical with fear and grief. She
thought her mother had been killed,
and not until she saw her mother alive
could she be made to believe different
ly. The unfortunate child is being
cared for by friends, pending the
mother's recovery, which will be a
matter of several days.
Carlisle had been seen frequently in
the neighborhood during the past
three days. He had been seeking a
reconciliation. Mrs. Carlisle secured
her divorce In January on the grounds
of drunkeness and failure to provide
and Carlisle did not seem to be able
. to reconcile himself to the separation.
They had Deen married 20 years and it
Is said that Carlisle was devoted to his
wife in his way, although this devo
tion never arose to the same height
as his devotion for liquor.
Declared He Had Kefomied.
Boarders at the Carlisle house say
she has avoided him persistently and
that he wrote many letters In the hope
of a reconciliation. He was employed
al the Crown-Columbia Pulp & Paper
Company's plant, at Oregon City,
working with the night shift, and de
clared in' his letters he had reformed.
That was the basis on which he sought
to patclj up their differences.
It is believed that Carlisle went to
the house yesterday morning for the
purpose of either making up with- his
former wife or killing her. The revol
ver he took with him was rusty, but
had been oiled and cleaned recently.
Carlisle reached the house Just as a
laundryman was leaving with a bun
dle of clothes and stepping in the open
door confronted his wife. What hap
pened was told by Mrs. Carlisle as she
was being taken in the patrol wagon
to the hospital: '
"He came in and held out his hand
as if to shake hands," she told Patrol
men Harms and Qruber, who escorted
her to the hospital. "He said he want
ed to speak with me. I told him to
"Go away, I don't want you around
here Then he shot me.
"Is he dead?" she asked the officers.
On receiving an affirmative reply
she displayed no feeling. "I could not
make up with him," she volunteered.
"I had suffered for 20 years through
him and I did not intend to go back
to that terrible life. I told him in my
letters to keep away and make a man
On reaching the hospital the woman
was overcome with grief and cried bit
terly for hours. She was treated by
the house staff who found the wound
was in no way serious, although severe
An investigation of the affair was
made by Deputy Coroner Dunning. He
found that none in the bouse had wit
nessed the affair, although Mrs. R w
Hlnton was In an adjoining room at
the time. She heard the couple talking
hut as there was no loud talking did
not suspect trouble was brewing un
til the shooting occurred. No Inquest
will be held.

About a year ago she instituted a suit
for divorce on charges of drunkenness

a boarding-house. The divorce was grant

Carlisle often told his wife if she sued
for a divirce he would klU her and then
kUl himself. Since his wife moved to

barrow at a second-hand store for J2.50,

family lived In Mulino, Clackamas Coun
ty, where Mr. Carlisle was night mill

San Francisco Gets One Steamer.
Steady Increase in Lumber Trade
of Coast Cities Apparent.
Xews of Waterfront.
Over 3.OHO.0O0 feet of lumber was cleared
from Portland yesterday for ports in
California. Three steam schooners got
away with cargoes for San Pedro and a
fourth cleared for San Francisco. For
one day's clearance for a California port
the exports of yesterday set & record fig
ure. The vessels and cargoes which were
reported at the Customs-House yesterday
were: For San Pedro Majestic, with
900,000 feet Coaster. G50.000 feet; Olympic.
750.000 feet. For San Francisco Yellow
stone, with 800.000 feet.
Lumber traffic on the Paclnc Coat has
Increased greatly during the past three
months. Lumber dealers in California
have allowed their yard stocks to drop
down to the lowest ebb, and now they
must replenish. Railroad construction
has been revived and large orders have
been placed for lumber at mills in Port
land and elsewhere In the States of Ore
gon and Washington. This as well as
big timber are in demand.
During the period Immediately follow
ing the earthquake and fire in San Fran
cisco there was an unusual demand for
lumber in California. Rates ran up to
better than $9 a thousand and many of
the mills sent cargoes on consignment.
The result was an over-supply in the
yards and a consequent reaction. The
normal demand has now reduced the
yard stocks and a healthy business will
result. Rates are equitable and the de
mand wil keep a large fleet of droghers
moving along the coast.
PREPARES FOR SUMMER TRADE
Steamer Bailey Gatzert Being
Placed In Readiness for Season.
Carpenters and painters will begin

Approval of the map. filed by the
Harrlman interests with the Interior De
partment for a road Into Central Oregon
alonsr the Deschutea Rives Is delayed
and favorable action cannot he taken for
some time. Thia la Indicated In a dis
patch, received yesterday by W. W Cot
ton, general counsel for the Harrlman
lines In this territory, to the effect that
two special engineers of the reclama
tion service will be appointed to go over
the surveys and learn If they conflict
seriously with reclamation projects.
A. A. Hoehllna;. an attorney at Wash
ington acting for the Harrlman Interests,
wired ilr. Cotton yesterday as follows:
"The secretary says that after a full
conference with Director Newell, he has
decided to refer the Deschutes River
Railroad situation to two special agents
of the reclamation service for examina
tion In the field as to the matter of con
servation of water resources at that place
and to ask for a speedy report, thus pass
ing the matter over to the next Adminis
tration. I regret that this is so but have
feared it for some time."
Portland commercial organizations are
going to get behind the Deschutea rail
road and do alt they can to remove the
obstacles before the project. Influence
will be brought to bear with the depart
ment at Washington to secure favorable
action on the matter. It Is hoped this
may facilitate matters and leave the
way clear for the construction of the
However, as matters stand now, If the
report of the special agents of the rec
lamation service is such as to favor the
construction of the water power and Ir
rigation projects, already planned In pref
erence to the railroad, and approval Is
not favored for the maps. It la possible
that the Deschutes road will never be
built. For If the reclamation projects are
carried out. It will mean the building of
the railroad at an elevation that is con
sidered prohibitive. The height at which
the line would have to be constructed
would put it up on the bare face of the
rock din's along the Deschutes and make
railroad building practically Impossible.

the matter will be settled satisfactorily

Varicocele causes congestion of the blood in some of t!ie most vital
blood vessels of man. It causes a dull, heavy, list Ions feeling, which
is often mistaken for nervous debility or general decline. Varicocele
results from partial paralysis of the delicate nerve fibers that control
local circulation of the blood. The . muscular coating of the veins Is
deprived of nervous control and becomes inactive, weakens and relaxes.
The blood vessels expand from the pressure within. The circulation be
comes sluggish and clots form in the little nooks and pockets that con
stantly enlarge as the relaxation continues. These clots may pass into
general circulation, and should one find lodgment in the valves of the
heart, the result might be instant death. Sho-ild a clot lodge In the
minute capillaries of the brain, apoplexy or general paralysis might fol
low. I CURE VARICOCELE
Don't allow yourself to bo butchered and tinkered with. I have a
safe, painless and sure cure, original with me and employed by no one
else. I use no knife, cause no pain, and you need not be detained from
business a single day. I especially solicit those cases In which many
so-called treatments have failed, or where money has been wasted on
electric belts or other appliances. Don't experiment when my direct
method offers a certain means of cure.
