Laurin, Prop. "Special Agent-
in New York or other big Eastern city,
written on an imposing buiness letter
head snd bearing every earmark of be
ing genuine. It reads something like the
following, and any one following out
the conditions are "it."
'"Our western office reports their in
ability to deliver a prepaid package to
your address as 'above. Kindly advise
us without delay where this package
should be aent as it will shortly have
to be placed ia our storsge warehouse
at your expense."
This U a real nice letter to receive,
at especially about this time of the
year when Christmas packages are due
to arrive. Tha recipient naturally eon
chides that there is a present hung up
somewhere for him that is being de
layed on account of an insufficient ad
dress In response to this letter comes a
statement that the package has been
sent to tba warehouse but a dollar or
two will releae it from custody and pay
for the extra trouble. When the money
is sent that is the last ever sen of it
or tli package unless the person send
ing the money keeps a loving remem
brance of the "bunch" that has been
handed him by the grafters.
This same gang of grafters worked
a couple of Montana towns a couple of
years ago to the tune of about $2000.
In the Eastern pert of the United States
it has been worked to a finish and now
the swindlers are turning their atten
tion to tbe Northwest.
At Everett and other pbves letters
similar to the one given here were re
ceived by residents. Rome time the per
son's suspicions are lulled by the. state
ment that the package has been sent
to a fake address, somewhere where
tbe man had formerly lived. This is
found out by the advance agent at times
and it makes the thing seem natural.
No one is swindled out of very much
a dollar or two being the most, but
when the entire number is taken into
consideration the amount is very large
in the end. The letters are copied by
miraioirsDh and are sent out by the

Owing to the fact that so many in tbe

those in the Northwest are the most
eaeily obtainable this year and many
will receive these letters.
At a quarter of three this morning
one of the hardest hail storms w hich has
ever visited Atoria, occurred. For ten

When confronted by Mrs. Wright Miss
Peters fainted and was revived by her
former employer, who declared she
