selves. They left their home yes
terday morning at 7 o'clock, and
walked to Toledo, arriving here at

miles in four hours and forty
minutes. This is at the rate of
about five miles an hour, which is
pretty good, considering the way
the roads are.

first of the week, where he will try

people can afford to indulge in.
A degree of Rebekah lodge was
instituted at Elk City last Thursday
night. Mrs. Anna Turnidge was
instituting officer, and was assisted
by a staff of grand officers form Do
Good Lodge No. 70, of Toledo.
Ten charter members formed the

the degrees a recess was taken to
the lower room of the building
where the assembled brothers and
sisters partook of a most bountiful
repast, spread by the estimable
sisters of Elk, in honor of the oc
casion. After doine full iustice to
the excellent supper, the brothers
and sisters again reassembled in the
lodge room, where the newly
elected officers were installed into
their respective chairs. The fol

Last Monday a complaint was
sworn out by Ira Wade charging
J. Long, a settler living about two
miles from the Wade ranch, with
killing a cow and a steer belonging
to Mr. Wade. A warrant was is
sued and placed in the hands of
Deputy Sheriff Ross, who brought
Mr. Long before Justice Hall's
court. Mr. Long's son accompanied
him to town and he was also ' ar
rested after arriving here upon the
same charge. The preliminary
examination of the father occurred
first, being continued until two
o'clock p. m. yesterday. The state
was represented by District Attorney
Yates and his deputy F. D. Carson,
the former coming over from Cor
vallis Tuesday evening ?n response
to an urgent telegram. The defense
was represented by Judge Hufford,
of Corvallis, and W. H. Alexander,
01 tnis place. 1 ne testimony was
somewhat vague, but was deemed
sufficient by the justice to warrant
i him in binding the prisoner over to
1 await the action of the grand jury
at the July term of court. The
bond was set at $100 which was
promptly furnished and the defend-
I ant allowed to go free. The case
against the son was dismissed upon
I the motion of the district attorney.

up a young steer that was nearly

shut it up in the barn, where they
have since been feeding it. As the
steer got strong the boys trained it j

Ben, and when his wife asked him
to go to the barn last Sunday for
some potatoes, he walked right into
the part where the steer was shut j
up, and closed the door without
even seeing his steership, which
was laying down in a dark corner.
The steer was astonished and at!

known and felt. The first round
ended with Ben on. his back on the
floor, and the steer in his own
corner not even touched. By that
time Ben had decided that it was
not an earthquake nor a cyclone he !
had got mixed up with, and so he
began to put up a defense. On the i
second round both sparred for an
opening, but the opening that Ben
so ardently desired was on the
other side of the steer. After a
little preliminary work they clinched
and at the call of time Ben retired
to the manger, from which place he
managed to escape through the hay
loft. The referee decided the con
test in favor of the steer, but Ben
claims it on a foul, claiming that
the steer struck him several times
below the belt, particularly when
he was trying to climb into the
