Violated Gamo Law. Yesterday
Clifford Downs was arrested by
Game Wardens Wright and Noah
for shooting ducks out of a boat on
the Bay. It seems that the game
wardens saw the alleged violation
personally. Owing to the offender
being under eighteen, he will be
tried in luvenile court Instead of
before Justice Pennock.

former Marshfleld restaurant man,
but now a resident of Libby, was ar
rested today on a warrant Issued by
Justice Pennock, charging him with
assault. The complainant Is C. M.
Gage of Libby who alleges that An

August Hoelllng had a narrow
escape from drowning while unload
ing apples from a boat at the wharf
Thursday. The boat overturned and
Hoelllng was plunged Into the Bay.
In falling he managed to catch on to
the edge of the wharf but got in
nearly to his shoulders. His lusty
yelling soon brought aid and he was
pulled out. For a time, some' who
heard him thought that he was
merely trying out his voice for the
next meeting of the council when he
will again urge the ndoptlon of the
ordinance providing for the issuance
of $100,000 bonds.
NORTH BEND WOMAN
DIES AT HOSPITAL
Mrs. Annn D. Ames, Who Was Re
cently Sent to Salem Institution
Word has been received here that
Mrs. Anna D Ames, the North Bend
woman who was sent to the Oregon
State hospital for the Insane at Sa
lem a few months ago, died there
November 5. The body was sent to
relatives at Red Bluff, Cal., where
burial will take place.
The case was a pitiful one and at
the time attracted considerable at
tention. A short time after Mrs.
Ames was declared Insane, her hus
band was also committed to the asy
lum. They had three small children
who were sent by the Coos county
court to relatives of the couple at
Red Bluff, Cal.
A few years ago, Mrs. Ames was
the victim of a sensational attack
by an employe of a steamboat while
coming here from California, and it
is believed that this was the cause
of her derangement.

New York and pulp timber enough
to glut the world's paper market,

and most thriving little town on the
Pacific Coast. Gold Beach Globe.

EUGENE, Ore., Nov. 12. In tho
Ch cult Cout here In tho case of W.
E. Boddy vs. the City of Eugene,
Judge Coke, sitting in place of Judge
L, T. Harris, decided that near-beer

fine. Tho case was taken from tho
