Young Marry Miller has had n
somewhat checkered career. Ilia

the evt-ry-ilay lifo of n fanner; 1 was
ambitious to In-como a man like mv

ing him of my desire evoked a re
ply inviting ine to come to him, and
saying he would help me. A few
weeks later 1 found myself at 'The
Hermitage' on Oakland Height.
My fathei's reception was not as
cordial as I had a right to expect.

that he did not propoxe to let mo be

"It was the same old hard drudg
ery I had thought' of escaping when
I left Oregon. To lm sure, inv fath

I thought that with the money thus
gained I could educate myself in
the higher branches. 1 1 was a crush
ing blow when he refused to pay
mo. Anger ami disappointment
overcame my better judgment, and
one day I left The Hermitage.'
"My brother (Jcorgo went with
mo, and we traveled alxmt the state
working at various places, until
finally we parted in Modock county.
I came to Sail Francisco and car

District Telegraph Company for a
while. Then I returned to tho
country and worked at odd jobs,
getting square meals occasionally,
but most of tho time going hungry.

Portland, while I was hungry ami

Webster. He was an old acquaint

the habit of using opium. One day
we walked out of Portland and along
the roads conversing until wo came

ami sometime a letter from my
limit or my brother would lot u
gleam of sunshine into my life.
My aunt seldom wrote without en
closing a little money for me. At

county. One day while tramping
over the mountains, f.ilnidiing ami
in search of work, I t amo uinm a
house that had lieen left unguarded.
I entered it and ale my full. Then
I stole a gun and some cartridges
ami left the place. Another day of
tramping ami hunger followed, and
then I shot a sheep, nud roasting tho
animal, had another hearty meal.
I walked on again ami suddenly
catn upon a stage toiling up a hill.
"The idea of robbing it came as
an inspiration. As the stage neared
me, I stepied from behind ft tree
and ordond the driver to stop. If
he had shown light I hhould prob
ably have ran away because I was
frightened and xhakiug like a leaf.
Ho stopped, however, and threw out
the oppress box. When the stage
had disapiieurod I oiiened tho box

a few way bills. Not a cent did I
get for my trouble. Then followed
a couple of weeks of dodging ami
hiding in the forest from the-:Hieer,
who I knew were searching for me.
I reached Santa llosa ami there
Sherilf Standley arrested me.

at the Salem penitentiary Millar
"No man can conceive of tho
cruelties that are perpetrated behind
the walls of that place. All the
ollicers stand in together, and should

IT LOOKS I.tKIt WAR.
The Chilian DirAculty lUi AuMtttitJ .i
THINK TIIKV CAN WHIP US HAIILV.
A Washington dinpitch says the
Chilian imbroglio hears an ugly
look, and is giving tho administra
tion more uneasiness than the presi
dent or hit advisers are likely to ad
mit. The country ha been lulled
into fancies of ieaee by the assur
ance of Minister Monti that Chili
did not want war, an l that justice
would be done in the examination
of the Baltimore afT.ur, and there
fore was not prepared for the dis
patch showing that the Chilians
were preHring to w rk themselves
up into another paioxysm of freiuy,
which would give thi ol the required
imjictu to do something dojerate.
It is evident they arc l-cnt on return
ing another impudent answer to the
claims of the Cuited States, and
that the answer will come in a few
day unless Minister Moult, wIhi is
a cool-headed man and appreciates
fully the power of -this country both
in jieace and war, succeeds in turn
ing aside the torrent of bombast his
countrymen are evidently readv to
let loose. There i.i no doubt of" the
truthfullness of th" rctiorl that on
last Saturday Secretary ltlaiue re
ceived a dispatch from Consul Mc
Crcery, stating that an ugly feeling
against the Americans was cropping
out In Chili, nd that trouble of n
serious nature might occur. About
the sam time there came a long
cablegram from Minister Kgan,
which was humilv deciphered aud
at once placed in the hands of the
president. This was to the effect
that the finding of the court of in
quiry into the bloody Baltimore
massacre would probably opose tho
claims of the I nited States and
might probably be the basis of a
saucy and unsatisfactory nolo to
Secretary Blaine. Tho minister
thought the govcrniu nt should he
advised of this condition of things
in advance. Consul MeCreery has
sjM-cial means of knowing what is
transpiring in Chili government
circles, because he is probably the
only Amorican in the country who
can go w la-re he pleaes ami when
he pleases. Ih- Unit lived in Chill
so long as to be nlui'i-t considered a
Chimin, and his doiin tdic relations
with the js-ople where be lives, as j
every one knows, are extremely close. 't

that it is proNied to waste no time
