Having eaten nothing throughout the

of meal broth 'and 'masticated some
beef without swallowing. Frommid-

was constantly drowsy.

Oregon City Has a Fire.
Oregon City, Ore., July 14 The
pullery, picker house, dryer louse ma
chine shop and boiler house of the
Oregon City Woolen Mills were de
stroyed by fire tonight. The fire for
a time threatened the entire -water
front. Damage $60,000.
Tacoma parties are taking prelimin
ary steps toward the establishment of
afoundary and a machine shop in
Grants Pass. The f oundary is to be
started up on a small scale, compara
tively, but will be enlarged.
The Minneapolis Times has found
out that the hens laid 16,000,000,000
eggs last year, and they brought in
the market $150,000,000. The poul
try of the country is worth $139,-
000,000, and the combined value of
poultry and eggs is nearly double
hat of the precious metals and six
times that of the wool crop. This
illustrates the tremendous aggregate
value of some things that, considered
individually or in small groups, seem
smalLand insignificant.

Handled Women Passengers on the
Car Roughly.
Portland, Ore., July 15. With
daring and wantonness supreme, six
masked men held up car No., 31 of
the Oregon Water-Power & Railway
Company, at the Southern Pacific
crossing on East Eleventh, near Divi
sion street, at 11:45 o'clock last night,
robbing the 40 passengers and shoot
ing B. F. Day through the back with
a 3S-caliber revolver. Day will re
cover. A reward of $500 has been
offered by Chief of Police Hunt.
There is not the slightest clew to the
perpetrators, and no arrests have
been made.
The ill-fated car with its load of
human freight left the city station at
the corner of First and Alder streets,
at 11:20 o'clock. Conductor Mattson
and Motorman Nye were in charge.
There were between 40 and 50 pas
sengers, including men, women and
children, many of them returning to
their homes from the opening of the
Woodmen's carnival. The car sped
along at a rapid rate until the cross
ing of the Southern Pacific, near Di
vision street, was reached, where a
crossing and ior the switch just be

St. Petersbueg, July
15 The
Birzhevia Vedomosti says:
The Czar
has abolished the harshest
of the barbaric punishments of former
times, namely castigationwith cudgels
and catro'-nine-tails, chaining to the
car, shaving the head, which were
still inflicted for certain offenses on
persons exiled to penal settlements,
or to the mines. Castigation with the
cat-o'-nine-tails and even with the
cudgels not infrequently end in death
and was one of the harsh forms of
the death penalty, being death by tor
ture. Only the most hardened prison
administration could stand tne terrible
sight of the human being under the
measured blows of the cat-o'-ninetails.
The cudgel and the cat are replaced
in the new statute, says the newspa
per, by prolongation of terms or by
solitary confinement up to 100 day3
with bread and water "except every"
third day, when hot food will be
served at one meal.
The abolition of the cudgel and
"cat" does not, however, mean the
prohibition of capital punishment
altogether. The revised statute of
June 15 prescribes chastisements
with birch reeds up to 100 blows
"for light offenses and misdemean
ors," according to the same authority,
and this matter Is left entirely to tho
discretion of the prison authorities or
the local governors.
New Law Promulgated Giving Labor
New Freedom.
St. Petersburg, July 14. In fur
therance of the proposed domestic
reforms, a new bw has been promul
gated, giving factory employes the
right to appoint delegates from the
workers to present their interests in
conferences with the factory inspect
ors. The plan for the formation of a
new police force to maintain order
and assure security in the rural dis
tricts of 46 provinces of European
Russia will be carried out immediately
in 15 of these provinces, but, owing
to the large expenditure involved.
$2,250,000., six years will be allowed
fonts complete execution in the
other provinces.
Over 320,000 men have been called
to tho colors in order to ascertain She
strength of the Russian army xasj
for the present year.
Eighty acres of seven-hcadod wheat
planted at Milton by J. M. Freeman
show good prospects of a crop of 65 to 70
bushels this year. Tho flour made from
this wheat last year was nearly equal in
quality to the best grades of bluestem,
and, as the yield was greatly in excess,
the venture appears profitable. This is
the second year of the experiment, and
so far the new wheat has been tried cm
hill land.
