After a sensational fight. In which

John Smith down, the latter was ar
rested In the postofflce late yesterday
afternoon and landed In the city - jail.
The name he gave Is undoubtedly ficti
tious, and the officers have not been able
to identify the prisoner. He Is charged
with the burglary of Dr. William Koeh-
ler's office at 242 First street four
nights ago;' He took a large number of
dental ' instruments and some gold for
filling, all of which was found on him
yesterday at the time of the arrest ,
Smith made the . plea that - he was
known here, and that he did not want
to be seen going to jail with the officer.
He attempted to get away, and It was
not . until he was felled , to the floor in
the ' private office ! of Postmaster Ban

to practical results that will eventually

From the Woodburn Independent
There has been considerable road'
building on paper and by word of mouth,
and little of a material character. Prob
ably the latter will be a natural se
quence of the other two, and that great
pow-wows are necessary for the con
summation - of such a laudable object
The people have bead so much and paid
such high ' taxes this year- that they
will be bitterly disappointed if they do
not get a better showing on the roads,
and it begins to look as if they will
have no occasion to be sour.

John M. Gearln, past grand knight of
Portland council. No, 678, Knights of
Columbus, was presented with a beauti
ful gold charm last Tuesday evening in
recognition of his services to the order,

watch, with a locket, in which was set
a small diamond. There was a picture

"Nobody who has not, been through
the mill can realize the tribulations of a
professional baseball : umpire." , said -a
member of . that long-suffering clan the
other day. "Of all jobs on the face of
the broad earth it Is the most thankless
and the , least desirable. . In the first
place the umpire has got to keep by him
self a good deal during the playing
season. His is a lonely and isolated
existence a good part of the time. He
can't afford to associate with ball play
ers, because if he got friendly with any
of the players .it might create talk or
influence his decisions unconsciously.
"So the umpire holds aloof almost
entirely from the players, stays at dif
ferent hotels from them and travels by
different roads. I've seen the time, when
I had my wife with me at a hotel, that
I would not want to pass a group of ball
players who might be standing near, lest
one of them shoul say something in
suiting to me as we passed and there
would be trouble. Some players are bit
ter enough to Insult you under just
such circumstances. - , . .
T used to ' instruct the employes of
the hotels where I stopped not to men
tion baseball to me at alL I refused
to think of it off the field. There's no
getting away from the conditions of
loneliness. K folio ws"yW from - town
to town, and In each place they have
their grievances against the umpire. If
you Bhould happen to give a decision
against the home club the streetcar con
ductor, if he knows you, the waiters and
everybody else with local affiliations
scowl on you. . Many a time you are en
tirely friendless.
Then, the PoUce.
' "Then there are the police. Some
times there are not enough of them on
hand to insure proper protection, and
sometimes when there are enough they'll
scowl at you and swear at you under
their breaths, grip their clubs as if they
would like to use them on you and
otherwise give you to understand that
they are protecting you against their In
clination. I was once insulted by a cop
while on my way to my dressing room
after the game. Tou know where I
dress,' I replied. Terhaps you would
like to come back there and settle the
argument,' ; But all he did was to call
me an Incompetent blankety blank, bis
fellow cops doing likewise. The cops
are just as prejudiced rooters as any
body else. .
"As for the players, well, you know
how they make Ufa miserable for an um
pire. They are always ready to roast
him, and seldom, if ever, have a kind
word for him. I believe some of the
players, would like to encourage the um
pire ones in a while if it wouldn't seem
so strange to them. On the other band
there are players Who, when you um
pire your best game, are sore because
you didn't give them a chance to kick.
' Managers Also' Orowl. .
"Managers' and owners also have their
grawl at you, and it is very unpleasant.

alone, feeling that you are the. most. for
lorn creature on earth, to have. the home
magnate send word to you by one Of bis
hirelings that you were rotten, that be

a threat which be doesn't make good,
now that league presidents stick up for
their umpires. t '
"The umpires will make mistakes of
course. They know it and feel worse
over the mistake than anybody else.
Sometimes, too, an umpire gets careless
or lasy and doesn't get around to see
the decisions as he should. Then a lit
tle roasting does him good and puts him
on his mettle. But there's no use in
hounding a man. "Poor blind Snyder Is
the way a Philadelphia paper referred to
Charley Snyder every day for. a whole
season. v ':. .
"The bumps that the Umpire gets with
ths ball take the starch out of him
sometimes. I got three Taps on the
wrist in quick succession one day In
Brooklyn, and the last caused me such
intense pain that I felt heartbroken. It
simply took my nerve, unstrung me com
pletely. And to be guyed by a lot of
people when you are in physical and
mental distress does not add to your
comfort" ' . ' ' '

were two previous convictions against
her for theft, and she was accused of
stealing the pots and pans. Ths
Cologne Judges held, however, that as
she had only thrown the utensils over

sustained, and they further decided
that she could not be convicted of dam

Ernest W, Clements says: "On the sev
enth day of the nrst month if a male
swallows seven and a female fourteen
red beans they will be free from sick
ness all their lives: if one bathes at
the hour of the dog on the tenth day, his
irh-wnr become hard. A child begot
ten in the father's 43d year Is supposed
to be possvsied of the devil. When
such achiid' is about one month old it
is, therefore, exposed for. about three
hours in some sacred place. Some mem
ber of the family then goes to get it and,
bringing it to the parents, says: 'This
is a child whom I have found and whom
you had better take and bring up.' Thus
having fooled the devil, the parents re
ceive their own child back."
