George E. Richardson, the "hero of
Yonculla," who saved a train from being
wrecked and secured the thanks of the
passengers, will probably soon appear iu
a new light. A warrant has been made
out for his arrest as one of the conspira
tors, stories told by himself being con
flicting, and the wounds which rendered
him unconscious, etc., being only skin
deep. The company doctor protested
against being imposed upon and does
not like to be called to doctor a man
who is not sick. The theory is that it
was pre-arranged that the rail should be
displaced, and then that one of the men
should be given marks of extreme vio
lence, and then he should flag the train.
Of course, for all this, the company
would pay him handsomely, and the
crowd would divide the reward.
Geo. F. Richardson is in jail. The
first intimation received by the Multno
mah county officers that Richardson's
arrest was contemplated was contained
in a dispatch sent by Sheriff Noland lo
Sheriff Kelly on Sunday. As the neces
sary arrangements had not been com
pleted, the matter was kept very quiet.
Sheriff Kelly placed a deputy in charge
of Richardson, but the latter was not
informed of the officer's intention; and
dwelt in blissful ignorance until he was
taken to jail at 8 :30 o'clock Sunday night.
He was greatly surprised at his arrest.
Though not generally known, Rich
ardson is the same man who "saved"

walking along the track at a point some
where between Baker City and Pendle
ton he discovered a boulder on the track,
and rushed back and flagged the train
by lighting a piece of bark. Subsequent
developments tend to show that Rich
ardson himself put the boulder on the
track and then flagged the train in the
hope of getting a reward. In thishe
was disappointed, for he only received
$8 from the passengers. He still denies
that he put the boulder on the track
but tells a plausible, story about it roll

Wamic,' April 3, 1893.
; Spring is here, of course. Woke up
from her long sleep at last; seems
greatly refreshed, too; emiles with a
broad, Chinooky. smile, and- all of the
natural world, that we have had a
chance to watch carefully, smiles back
at her. Spring! Wonder why spring
is of the feminine gender, anyway.
Not being versed in the biography of
Miss Spring, and never having met any
trustworthy person who waa present at
her christening, I naturally conclude
that she waa named by men ; good,
loyal, chivalrous men.who recognized
in the gentle, soothing and encouraging
elements of this first grand division of
the seasons, the right to the first choice
of sex. I suppose that it happened this
way. Anyway I'm sure it happened.
Our little burg came very near giving
birth last week to a wonderful phenom
enon in the shape of an inventor of per
petual motion. He (the inventor) was
born as a boy about thirty-five years
ago. For some eighteen years thereafter
he grew physically and became a man.
Since becoming 'a man be has grown
mentally, his mind running principally
In scientific grooves, until now be is
nearly a phenomenon. He has been
orking on his model' for several weeks;
as it perfected, so far aa mechanical
ntrivance goes, and had not that
oublesome element, called friction in
e school boy's text book, -intruded
itself, Edison would now be lying in the
somber shade of the phenomenon above
mentioned. Such ' little - incidents as
these are powerful arguments in favor of
popular practical education. Just talk
to any ordinary boy, who has taken a
course in the exact sciences, about pro
ducing perpetual motion by a combina
tion of the mechanical powers, and see
how quickly he'll tell you that you are
not very much "in it;" that your
scheme ia no good, any . how ; that
he means to post up on political econ
omy ; that when he baa spare time he
means i ' to study electricity, and that
when he knows all about electricity,
etc., he thinka he'll tackle meteorology;
but be is not sure, however, that mete
orology will do to bank on. Will let
you know his opinion later. Good
morning ! and he is gone to work.
Endeksby, Or., April 3d,' 1893.
Editor Chboxicxe : Not seeing any
thing in your valuable paper from this
burg for some time, we thought it time
some one should break the long silence,
therefore these few items : .
The people in this vicinity are- all
busy plowing and putting in grain. ' The
ground haa never been in better condi
tion and the weather being cool, farmers
are taking time by the forelock and get
ting in every acre they can. The fall
sowed grain is growing fine and prom
ises a big yield. ..
The weather for the last few days haa
turned warmer, which accounts for the
snow disappearing in the mountains and
the sudden rising of all streams 8-Mile
creek is higher than it has been for many
years, so look oat for lots of wheat and
plenty of gooseberries.
We noticed a few days, ago our post
master at Endersby looking over the
groqnd cautiously. We thought, per
haps, with a view to the location of the
site for the Eastern Oregon- insane
asylum. The thought struck us the lo
cation would be magnificent if we only
could get the great I Ain of Oregon to ac
cept of the profferred site. We have a
fine building here, built about a - year
ago for a grange hall which, I think, we
could induce the grangers to donate with
the site. .1 think that would be ample
and sufficient for an asylum for Eastern
Oregon for the next' twenty years. At
least by so doing it would take another
burden off the taxpayers of Oregon and
relieve the state board of equalization of
the grave responsibility of raising such
an enormous tax for state purposes. Of
course all of Western Oregon will have
to have their regular pull at . the front
teat, while we of Eastern Oregon will
have to take what we can get of the hind
thereof, and we are easy to wean.
We have heard and read a great deal
about the great work our last legislature
had done in fixing up the mortgage . tax
law and other matters of no account to
the people. We would expect better
legislature from an ordinary lot of school
boys than we received from our last
legislation. There is one thing they al
ways get in right and that is voting
themselves reading matter, stamps and
paper to last them for years to come.
Perhaps we have said enough on thia
question at present, ' and would like to
turn your attention to the good work our
able road supervisor Mr. Ryan of 5-Mile
ia doing on his portion of the road.
While there ia so much said all over the
state about the best methods of road
working, presumably by men who never
did a day's road work in their lives, but
sit on the fence and tell' how it should
be done. We feel, with Mr. Ryan, that
more work and leas talk is what makes
good roads, and for proof of this you
have only to drive over the 5-Mile hill.
If you don't go to sleep before getting
over that good road you will take off
your hat and hurrah for Ryan, as he has
put the road in better condition than it
has been for years. Seviixk.

- Wheat For Bogs.
Mr. O. A. Corey, of Ross county, Or.,,
answers a question of the Rural New
Yorker as to why he fed wheat thus:
"It is cheaper than corn at 40 cents a
bushel. This is how I came to feed
wheat. When I can sell corn at 40 cents
to 50 cents per bushel, I can make more
out of it than I can by selling wheat at
68 cents. The main reason now for feed
ing wheat, which I have learned by ex
perience, lies in the fact that wheat is a
more perfect' ration than corn for a
young growing animal. I feed dry,
whole grain not in troughs or in piles,
but scattered aa thin as for chickens on
a floor or grass award. The object ia to
compel the animal to consume it twice
in mastication. . The slow mastication,
and the hardness of the grain excite an
extra flow of saliva, and this ia the best
agent to liberate sugar from the etarch.
in the grain. Science teaches that this
ia the best known agent for this purpose.'
I feed corn somewhat in the same man
ner, only in the ear, never feeding more
at the winding up than they will eat up
clean in 90 minutes. . I always want
them to be ready for their feed. - I only
feed twice a day, at stated times, as
regularly as possible and not varying
more than 10 or fifteen minutes. I, re
gard this as important, for I have,
noticed that, when fed at regular hours,
the saliva will escape from the mouth at
the first or second bite. When fed at
an unseasonable hour this is not the
