Lambkin, as sho and her sponso vecro
walking homo together. "Woconld, I'm

"My only objection to him is tho fact

change tho subject, ho remarked, "I do

"Indeed. Ah, by tho way, didn't yon

"Vory likely. I notice that Dick is
particularly touchy whenever grand

'Ah, indeed. By the. way, how should

"Urn ah! I've just remembered that

"Impossible, George. I should be
ashamed to have any one know that I

sure to say that yon aro stingy, and I
would rather die than cause such re
marks." "Fact is, Eudora, I'm as anxious as
yon aro to go to tho opera, but money is
too tight. I had to make a payment to

They went into tho store, and Mr.
Lambkin selected his cigars, while his
wife stood by. Ho felt anxiously in hia
pockets for small change, and finding
none took a bill ont of his notebook, and
glancing warily at Mrs. Lambkin hand

San Francisco, Sept. 2 Chester Hol-
conib who ha? just returned from China,
after -I years' service in the American
legation at Peking, nays that the recent
nu-.eacre it traceable to the result of the
recent China-Japanese war.
'At the commencement of the war be
tween China and Japan," said he, "it
was generally feared that the lives of
foieignera in China would bo in great
langer as loni: as uie war lasted. As a
matter of fact, there was practically no
danger as long as tbe war lasted, and it
is only siuce hostillities ceased that there
has been any danger. We have had
prouf of this fact in the recent massacres,
and I think I can explain the reason.
"In the first place, the great mass of
the Chinese are dissapointcd with the
result of the war and arc taking revenge
on all foraiguers whom they can with im
'In the. second plce, the killing and
pillaging receives great encouragement
by reason of depredations committed by
hordes of disbanded soldier all over the
country. The Chinese government lias
a peculiar method of disposing of its
troops at the close of a war. When the
Boldiera are no longer needed they are
discharged from "service at the place
whero they happen to no at tbe time.
The fact that an army may be disbanded
several hundred or a thousand miles
away from home when disbanded, and
the fact that the soldiers may not pos
sess means of getting home does not in
terest Ine government in the least. The
troops are turned loose, and, to use an
American expression, they have to 'beat'
their way back to tbe place from whence
they came. That tbey should pillage
and commit depredations is, therefore,
only natural to such people under such
circumstances and tranquillity will not '
reign in China for some time to come.
'Just before I left Japan I learned
that an American missionary wbo has
been laboring near Peking since 1S69
had been assaulted and severely cut
with a knife. His name ia D. Z. Shef
field, and I have known him quite well
for years. It is only fair to the other
side to say, however, that the assailants
were arrested and will be tried for their
offense. If such prompt action was
taken In the cases of ether offenders the
wholesale killing of missionariea in
China would be speedily stopped. It is
almost Impossible to mete out justice to
offending Chinese in the interior pre
vinccs, and this is the fault of the gov
ernment." Mr. Holconib says the tbe most inter
esting question in the Orient at the pres
ent time, outside of the missionary mas
sacre and the cholera, ia tbe approach
ing conflict between Russia and Japan.)

Tar. cnoajnthonL jai-intr." he said.
"ami tno commencement oi actual hos
tilities is not far . IT. Tho Japanese have
a grievance njinet Russia, and Russia
is preparing to make things warm for the
Japanctc. The other day I was told
very frankly by a Jjpauesc official who
held a high pocitian in the government,
that Japan would Iivn to rue the day
when ehe permitied herself to become
mixed up in a war with China. It has
given Ruseia an oportunity she has
long waited for. No one knows belter
than I how narrowly Japan escaped a
war with Russia when she got through
with her war with China. Tbe Japan
ese were so incensed at Russia's attitude
in the matter of the cession- of tho Liao
Tung peninsula that the Japanese offi
cials talked seriously of engaging in a
squabble with Russia. I was in .'apan
at the time and heard it all. A certain
member of tho Japanese cabinet, whose
acquaintance I made when he was sent
to 1'eking as tbo Japanese minister to
China, said to me at the time: "Russia
has six iron battle-ship-. We have hut
one, and that we captured from the Chi
nese, If we had but four ironclads, or
only threes we would defy Russia."
That is just what Russia wanted them to
do. Russia will yet so ajjgravate the
Japanese that they will declare war.
Then Russia will attempt to drive the
Japanese of Corea, where they are
masters of the situation. The Japanese
are dictating affairs in Corea, for while
the king still remains on the throne be
dues nothing that Count Inouye does not
tell hiui to do. Tbe fight between Russia
and Japan will be over Corea and it will
come just a3 soon as Russia finds the
wants an open port on the Pacific."
Wreck Near Olympla.
ObYMriA, Wash., Sept. A row on
the track at Maxfield, 11 miles from
here, wrecked tho local passenger train
this tnorniug and sent tbe engine over an
embankment 50 feet deep, dragging one
p.tssenger coach with it. Nobody was
killed, aud the only injury was to the
Ttirnlog a sharp curve where the rail
road overlooks tbe Nesqnally flats 500
feet below, Eugineer Harry Shepard
noticed two calves cn tho track. He
slowed up to let them off, but just then a
cow stepped from tho brush in front of
the eugiud. The train was goiug too
slow to throw the cow off, and the ant
mid was crushed under the wheels. The
hide and hones lilted the wheels from
the track aud the big engine went tum
bling over the ties for -5 feet, then sud
denly piuuged headlong a distance of 50
feet, turning over aud burying itself in
the brush and Band. The train was
mado up willi tl.o first-class coach im
mediately next to tho engine, and the
smoker and luggage in the rear.
The weight of tho falling engine
dragged the passenger coach from the
track, bieakiug the trucks. The coach
followed the engine down the euibank-
mont, but waa kept from rolling down by
strong couplings with the baggase car,
which held the track. Had tho coupling
broken the pjisdenuer coach would have
rolled to the bottom, aud evety one of
the nine pjssougers would undoubtedly
havo been killed.
When tho engine started down En
gineer Shepard jumped and fell between
the tank and the wheels of the tender
He was shoved along in soft sand for
several feet, but waa only bruised. Tho
fireman's name wa3 not learned, lie
could not get out of the cab and rolled to
the bottom of tho gulch. His wife waa
in the passenger coa-h and was over
joyed to see him crawl out of tho wreck.
The passengers had little time to think
and busied themselves in climbing up
the floor of tho car, which lay at an
angle of 45 degrees. All climbed ont of
the windows. They were Captain Wil
liam McMickeu, trustee of the state
soldiers home, Erastua Brainerd, member

Fall Sowing of Grass Seed.
There is no question but that in tbe
fall is a good time to sow almost any
kind of grass seed on land intended for
pasture or meadow, provided the con
ditions are favorable for the germination
of the seed, and a start to grow for the
plants. So far as the season and tbe
condition of the soil will admit, grass
seeds of almost all kinds should be sown
early in the fall. If tbe seeding cannot
be done in lime and under such con
ditions aa will enable tbe plants to make
a good start before the cold weather sets
n, tho better plan will be to put off the
seeding until eat ly in the spring. In all
cares tbe soil should be prepared in a
good tilth before sowing. A gcod plan
ia to plow as soon after harvest as the
other farm work will permit, and then
use the disc and smoothing harrow to
prepare the Foil for the seed. It will al
ways pay to prepare the soil well before
sowing the seed, as the belter germina
tion and more vigorous blnrt will make
it easier to secure a more even distribu
tion. One of the principal advantages in
usin a seeder in preference to sowing by
hand is that a much more even ditribn
lion of the seed is possible. Use good
seed aud plentv of it. Generally it
proves poor economy to stint the seed
and get a poor stand as the result. Less
seed is needed when the soil is prepared
in good tilth and the frecding is under'
favorable couditious. Hut in all cuues it
is better to use rather loo much seed
than not enough.

Like the writer, I am a vet. and also a

for him ahnuld he l-e nominated. Like
many others, under the usual condition!-,
I am a strong advocate of rotation in

people of Oregon uud lalerly to those of
his district. It will be hard for your
party to find any one of near his strength,
more especially among the usual popu
lation of the district, which is not aloce
due to his official usefulness but to his
courtesy and kindness to all whom he
comes in contact. Dining th many

him a courteous, kiml unassuming gentle
