PENDLETON. Or.. July S. (Special.)
Although the past weok In Umatilla

In the northern part of the county the
crops were frozen out In the early Spring

danger. If hot winds spring up withir.

the loss of the major portion of the
Spring wheat, but Fall wheat Is believed
to be out of danger at this time.

belief that the crops this harvest will be
excellent. If hot winds do not strike Uma
tilla County within the next ten days.

that the land will now hold.
A big 20-inch water main In Twelfth
avenue South had to be taken out and
laid on private property. Now that the
street Is secure again and abutting prop
erty will stay, the water main will go
back to Its original location.
A blue clay formation about as hard
as soap stone has been responsible for
the trouble. In wet weather the support
ing ground has "been 50 wet that It
acted as a toboggan slide tor the eartn

tion of the blue clay.

Sockeyes Running in the Eraser.

tions for the success of the sockeyc run
this season, the fish are running well now
in the I raser River. On Tuesday evening,
the boats were scarce on the river, and

ab-.ut :') lish l or boat. Wednesday even
ing showed better success for the gill net
men. and they came in with an average
of 40 fish to a boat, nearly all sockeyes.
Thursday night was even better, and Fri
day morning there was some talk of the
canneries opening to full capacity, as tho
boats were averaging CO sockeyes to a
Friday night, and up to 6 Vclock on
Saturday morning, the boats average 73
fish to a boat. The north arm of the

the width of the main channel, the 10)
boats fishing on Friday night caught an
average of ISO sockeyes to a boat.

Talking; Jurors.
New Bedford (Mass.) Standard.
A Jury trial In a case at Salem has
been stopped because a witness talked
with one of the Jurors on the panel.
Whether he talked about the trial or
about the war In Manchuria is not stat
ed In any of the report ve have seen.
He talked; that appears to be the main
thing; and tiicroforc all that went be
fore was thrown away, to the embar
rassment of the parties to the suit and
the expense or the public We have
ourselves known of an Instance In
which a lawyer secured the postpone

of the second day and told the
Judge that a Juror In tho case ha4

conduct was very reprehensible and
sent J he case over without making- in
quiry Into the nature of the conversa
tion. If"2ic had he would have learned
that It consisted of "Good evening;
That Is an interesting- case of yours."
a remark made in entire Ignorance that
It was Improper by a man who was in
the habit of making- up his mind him

Face to Face With the King or
From Outing.
Fifteen yards from him there was a
small tuft of grass about ten yards wide.
Ah! if I could reach that.
But before I could place that In a
straight line between him and me there
were CO yards of sunbaked mud to cross.
I had lost many a shot from trying to
approach too close to gamo and had
sworn. "Never again." But the "Devil
of the Stalk" was in my heart. I would
reach that grass or forego the shot. I
drew, examined and replaced the two cart
ridges in my IM magnum, looked at the
end of the barrels to see that they were
clear of sand, placed tho hammers at
full cock, and inch by inch crawled from
my cover and out onto the stark, naked
The lion's back was turned to me. but
I could clearly see the droop of the shoul
ders as he swallowed the lumps of meat.
I was already half way my hand was
slowly pushing the rifle another yard
ahead, when my ear. tight-pressed to the
ground, heard a faint noise, followed by
a sharp hiss. A puff-adder raised Its vil
lainous squat head from the dust, looked
into my face with flashing eyes and quiv
ering tongue and sulkily crawled away.
Startled I had quickly drawn bacJ my
head. but. seeing It depart, had Imme
diately again lowered It behind mr out
stretched arm. The Hon. however, had
caught tho movement and Instantly turned
towards me.
Tho sun played full upon his face, and I
could plainly see the wrinkles on his noe
and the blood-flecked slime dripping from
his Jowl. He took half a dozen steps to
wards me and then to my astonishment
returned and resumed his meal. Again I
crept forward till at last that patch hid
him from my view.
I promptly rose to my feet, and bonding
low, glided rapidly towards the grass
Fifty yards 40 30 r(t-ten. like mid
Winter snow my footfalls sank upon the
dust. I held my breath. My fingers
twitched on the trigger-guard. Mv heart
ptood still in the last tautening of "a fran
tic strain yet another six steps and I
could peer through that-waving bunch of
grass at what?
. A faint rustle broke the heavj.- silence of
the scene. A grand, sad face peeped
round the corner of the grays.
Our eyes met.
The wondering expression broke Into a
hideous snarl and before I could recover
from my surprise the Hon had gono. Sick
at heart. I dashed round the Intervening
clump: the wide stretch of grass 40 yards
beyond parted to the rush of a great yel
low form; loud spoke, my gun; plump
came the answer bf the bullet speeding
home; a fierce rumbling growl, and north,
south, east and west the seemingly un
tenanted world was dancing In the noon
tide heat, while a' smoke wreath Idly
drifted down the plain.
Pets the Sailors .Toy.
July St. Nicholas.
Animal pets have ever been a great Joy
to the average sailor. There-is hardly a
ship afloat that does not carry one or
more such little favorites, to whom the
crew are universally kind. More than
this, there Is frequently developed an at
tachment between men nnd animals that
Is seldom to be seen on shore; and the
Intelligence displayed by these animals
often far exceeds the wonderful stories
we sometimes see in print. On men-of-war
there is probably more consideration
shown the crew In this regard than on
merchantmen; at all events, you will find
there many more ship's pets. It is by no
means uncommon to see upon the same
deck a dozen or more well-trained anl-
mnls of various kinds whose natural
homes are separated by thousands of.
Ethics of Smoking.
New York Globe.
No ono objects to the gentleman who
smokes. It Is the rowdy and hog; who Is
the nuisance. The "smart Aleck" who Is
regardless of the rights of woman. Into
whoso .face, he blows his smoke, should be
denounced by all decent men. as our
wives, daughters and mothers, when
alone, have no defonse against that hog.
A woman gets Into the smokers seat be
causo she Is nervously hurried Into the
first seat that comes to her. If she sits
next to a gentleman he will not have to
ask anyone what he should do. If his
smoke blows into her face. Any old kind
of cheap perfume. Is nicer than an old
pipe or cigarette smoke blown through a
diseased nose. The nonsmoker should
not have to look out for the smoker. It
Is the smoker's place to see that he does
not befoul the air that others breathe.

We have never yet sold Pianos and
Organs for as little prices as we are
offering them at just now, and it is
certain, too, that we will not soon
again assemble such a large collection
of special art styles, such as are now
being sacrificed.
It is worth while to give this oppor
tunity a little serious thought. The
Pianos are the very finest that the
world affords Chickerings, Webers,
Kimballs, Stecks, Hazeltons, Lesters,
Hobart M. Cables.
Come in and looli them over. "We
are prepared in this emergency sale
to make terms as low as $25 down and
10 a month, and on some of the still
less costly Pianos only 6.00 and 8.00
a month takes one.
Persons living at a distance may
safely purchase by telephone or letter,
