SUN DAT dinners In Portland board-ing-housea
yeeterday were differ

thing wer set before the boarders:
chickens were stripped of their wings
and necks before they were placed on
the tables and the old stand-by prune
dessert gave way to light custard, ice
cream, cake, puddings and plea. Board
ers rubbed their eyea to awaken from
what aeeemed to be a dream of garn
ished meats, heaping side-dishes and
choice selections of delicacies. But
they ate and ate they didn't ask ques

like a mirage on the deaert.
It was no vision. The dinner was
real, and the boarders, well-fed. hunted
secluded corners after the meal to dis
cuss It and try to solve the mystery.
Something; had happened; the land
lady was dressed In her best, and asked
each boarder, smilingly, to have more.
Some of the more timid boarders act
ually became frightened: others were
superstitious, but all agreed that an
extraordinary Incident was responsible
for the change of diet.

When boarders of one house began

BLOSSER IS VISITED
Man Who Tried to Loot Bank
at Sellwood Has Friends.
PAROLE WILL BE SOUGHT
Prominent Persons Go to City Jail
to See Prisoner Held for Crime
and Declare His Act Not That
of Hardened Wrongdoer.
Solicitous friends of Ralph Blosser,
under arrest for a confessed attempt
to loot the Sellwood Bank, visited the
City Jail at all hours yesterday with
requests to see or minister to the pris-.
oner. It was apparent that the new
of his predicament had aroused the
keenest Interest and sympathy among
the many reputable people who knew
and respected him.
Among the visitors was Rev. William
Hiram Foulkes, whose Interest was in
voked by members of his congregation,
friends of the prisoner. The clergy
man was closeted with the prisoner
for a considerable time.
Late in the afternoon Blosser's aged
mother and two sisters, carrying his
infant child, arrived at the Jail and
spent a half hour with the prisoner.
Much pressure will be brought to
bear to secure a parole for the ac
cused, weight being placed upon hia
previous good character, the recent
tragedy in his family, the fact that he
got nothing by his attempts, though
a more hardened criminal would have
succeeded, and that he virtually ac
cused himself when the officers had
but a shadowy case against him.
"Just two young- innocents trying to
live luxuriously on a meager Income
and not appreciating the value of
money," Is the way that the friends
of Blosser explain his misstep. All
scout the belief that Mrs. Blosser had
any share in the plot, and say that
grief at the fall of her husband was
the cause of her death.
Both the young people were well
connected. Blosser was originally of
Salem, and is a near relative of 'Dr.
Lee Stelner, superintendent of the In
sane Asylum. Mrs. Blosser was an
orphan and was reared in the family of
a prominent society woman of this city.
