that's nothing. You have been

Now a horse has such a load
as he can carry ; and a man wont

Attempted Stage Robbery.
From Mr. John A. Jones we learn tho
following particulars in reference to an
attcmptod robbory ou tho Blue Mount
ains about 20 miloa from Pendleton on
the Meacham road: Eaily Tuesday
morning John Ladd, a livery man at
La Grande, started with his team, to
bring to Pcndloton, Air. Jones, W. A.
Rice and Major Downing, a paymaster
iu the army. It was generally known
that a largo amount of money would ho
brought by these men, but it was also
supposed that this money would be ou
the stage. The stage, it scorns had
13 passengers of its own, and oame in
company with Ladd to the Mecham
station. Here the stage stopped to
change h rises, while Ladd with his
passengers and tho money drove for
ward. After proceeding eight miles or
so, I hoy came to a stoop hill, at the foot
of tho hill Ladd passed tho lines to Mr.
Jones and jumped out to walk up, and
jlr. Rico followed suit, leaving Major
Downing and Jones in tho wacon. Ladd
and Rico walked faster than Lho team,
and woro about 40 yards ahead, when
tv'omuakod men stepped out from trees
on either side of the road, stuck their
guns in Ladd and Ricofacoa aud utter
ed the words of tho Wandering Jew "go
on," of course they moved on. Tho
robbers then descended the hill ami to
the inmatoa of the wagon pronounced
those word, "go on," and they wnt,
not stnndong upon tho order of their
going, thoy soon overtook Ladd aud
Rico, who got into the wagon and
Ludd taking the roins, ran tho team to
the top of the hill. About this time
the sUlco had arrivod at tho foot of the
hill and thirteen men wearv from their
lido and to help tho horses, tilod out
of the stage, and commenced stringing
out up the hi!!. The would be robbers
were foiled ami they slunk into tho
timber, probably as badly defeated men
us ever robbed a stage or out a throat.
It is hoped a reward will be offered for
them, whieh shall induce sosuo detect
ive to work up tho case, arrest and
puni.-di thorn. East Oregouian.
