death by walking off a walk In the

against a stringer and was probably
rendered unconscious. The body was
recovered an hour later, and it Is Junt

A telegram from Ironwood, Mich.,
received by Mrs. Audrey Garner, of this
Ity, announces the death of her father,
James Blackburn. Mr. Blackburn was
lawyer of prominence In his city. The

was caused by pneumonia, which Mr.
Blackburn contracted while attending
the funeral of his wife recently. It was
thought that he was In good health, and
the news of his death came as a great

The Astoria public library will not
get all of the half mill tax recenty
levied. The tax will net $S50, bat of
this amount only $420 will go to the
library. The ordinance specifies that
the public library shall receive $35
monthly, and that the balance of the
$850 shall be used or held for the pur
pose of providing a library for the new
city hail "when erected.? : When the
levy was made It was generally under
stood the public library was to receive
all of the money, but this evidently was
an erroneous belief. ".'.As the levy was
made for library purposes the council
may make such disposition of the fund
derived as It sees fit, so long, of course.
