LET WHEAT REST-
A Larger Yield Sext Tear Tban
and- Prices Will Be low.
The farmers of Oregon are too much
given to the ' raising of wheat, and in
years like the present, when its- price is
scarceVy up to the cost of production,
they receive a severe set-back. . There
are other crops which are always profit
able, and yield just- as well as wheat.
For instance, corn. With proper culti
vation thirty to forty bushels of corn can
be raised per acre, and it always brings
a high figure. While the nights are not
as warm . the season is longer than in
Kansas and Nebraska, which answers
the same purpose.if the ground is stirred
two or three times during the growing
season. Broom corn is even more valu
able and just suited to many localities
where wheat does not do so well. The
present price of wheat Is the lowest ever
known, and at a time in the season
when it should e jmmand the highest
price. This year there has been a vast
over-production- of wheat, which is the
only condition that could keep its price
down so long. Serf great, in fact, is the
over-production, that next year's crdp
will be affected by it, and with a yield
less than the. average the rriceayear
hence cannot be much above what it 'is
now. But reports from abroad indicate
a larger wheat yield next year tban. ever,
and a low price for it is a foregone con
clusion. For these reasons the farmer
should raise other crops which will be
more in demand, and let wheat alone
for a year. The soil will also have a
rest, and will do much better whenever
wheat reaches it normal place again in
Filled With the Holy Spirit.
Edward Brekhus, a Norwegian, aged
21, whom ministers of the Lutheran
church declare is the mouthpiece of God,
and that he is filled with the spirit of
the Holy Ghost, has the Swedish Nor
wegian residents of Tacoma in a state
of great excitement. ' A few months ago,
while in Seattle, he was taken with an
epileptic fit, and, the physicians were
baffled by his disease, and his death
was predicted to take place in a few days.
Brekhus surprised everybody the next
day by rising from his bed entirely well.
week later he went to church, and
while there fell into a fit and began
talking. "Nobody was more surprised
than I," said Brekhus. "I listen to
myself talk with more interest, I'll bet,
than anyone else." The ministers claim

while in this trance. In lucid intervals

scriptures that is regarded as marvelous.

is passing through the same
experience as Walla Walla. The police
of that city on Tuesday arrested a gang
of youthful thieves, ranging from the
ages of 10 to 15 years, and lodged them
in the city prison on numerous charges
of petty larceny. The leader of the gang
confessed and made a statement which
showed that the -quartet of boys, three
of whom belong to respectable families,
have been guilty of a series of burglar
ies ana numerous tnetts tor nearly a
year past. They were regularly organ
ized, and had ' a rendezvous in a deep
cave in a gulch near the eastern part of
the city limits, where the officers dis
covered heaps of booty of various dis-
criptions. Among the articles in the
cave were nearly 100 door keys, stolen
from different houses and stores. Many
burglaries, which have been mysteries
for months, and which were supposed to
have been committed by professional
crooks, are found to have been executed
by this band of youthful rogues. The
cave of the young robbers was visited by
hundreds Wednesday afternoon. Inci
dents of Mark Twain's story. "Tom
Sawyer," are vividly illustrated in the

A MAN OF FEW WORDS.
Expedient of e Dun-Ridden
He was a man of few words and fewer
dollars, says the Chicago Post. He
didn't like to be disturbed, and he
didn't like to enter into lengthy ex
planation. When a man came in, took
a seat beside his desk and asked if he
could settle that, little account it
wearied him to say: "Really, I'm sorry,
but I haven t got the money to-day,
And when the man suggested that it
bad been running a long time it
wearied him still rridre to have to say
"Yes, I know it, but I have been very
short. I'll try to have something for
you next week." There was too much
chance for a man to get pressing and
annoy him by stringing out the inter-
view. He tried keeping away from
the office at the hour his creditors
usually came, but they changed the
hours of their calls, and he was still
bothered and annoyed by their impor
tunities just when he was busiest.
Then he hit upon a brilliant scheme.
He put in a day puttering around his
desk arranging things, and the follow
ing morning was ready when the first
creditor arrived. He never looked up
from his work as the creditor began:
"Could you " He 6imply pulled
string and a placard appeared which
read: "No!" . The creditor walked sad
ly away without finishing the sentence.
He even forgot to ask when he should
call again. For three weeks now no
creditor has received a verbal answer
and the young man says it is a great
relief. He can answer their questions
without stopping his work, and the
placard has a discouraging effect that
makes them leave the sooner. His only
mistake has been when ajnan entered
hurriedly and began: "Would you
like " He pulled the placard into
view and the man replied: "Oh, very
well; 1 am in no hurry, if you are not.
He looked up just in time to see that it
was a man who owed him five dollars.
but it was too late to catch him.
The persistent cough which usually
follows an attack of the grip can be per
manently cured by taking Chamberlain
Cough Remedy. Mr. W. A. McGuire, of
McKay, Ohio, says: "La Grippe left
me with a severe cough. After using sev
eral different medicines without relief, I
tried Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
which effected a permanent cure. I have
also found it to be without an equal for

KNOCKED . THE BRIDE SENSELESS
Only ss Unfortunate Incident' Growing
Out nf a Bridal Cuntom.
A well-known . New' York drummer
returning from a southern .trip relates
the following' story as of actual oc
currence at a negro wedding in Char
leston, S. C:
After the ceremony had been con
cluded in the most" approved style the
groom, who was employed at one of
the phosphate mines, a few miles from
the city, bundled his bride into a rude
cart, loaded some household effects
into it and prepared, among salvos of
cheers and best wishes, to take her ,
home. ." - " -. '
At this stage in the proceedings one
darky, who had traveled - and been
present as a waiter at' the wedding of
some white folks, suggested that the
proper thing to do was to throw shoes
after the departing couple as they
drove away. .
The idea took immensely, and such
a scrambling as followed when the col
ored belles and beaux began to divest
their feet of boots and shoes of various
sizes and weights! Many of the men
had no stockings on beneath their
shoes, but that made no difference.
They all hung back, suppressing
their enthusiasm until the happy
groom brought a bale stick down on
the back of the mule and started his
bridal trip. Then with a howl of joy
the guests burst forth and began a
fusillade which was by no means rel
ished by the happy pair.
The air was filled with flying mis
siles. One gigantic boot struck the
groom in the small of the back and
drew from him a wild yell of agony.
Another hurtling through the air with
unerring aim struck the bride full on
the head and knocked her senseless.
This was too much for the groom.
Leaping from his cart, with his bale
stick in hand, he set about to thrash
every one of the guests. As might be
inferred, a wild riot ensued, or was
about to, when a' policeman came up
and put a stop to it. Nothing, how
ever, could, appease the duslty groom
until the officer assured him that he
was not the-victim of an indignity, but
merely the object of a bridal custom
such as white folks always observed.

About a year ago I took a violent at
tack of la grippe. I' coughedday and
night for about six weeks ; my wife then
suggested that I try Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. At first I could see no
difference, but still kept trying it, and
soon found that it was what I needed.
If I got no relief from one dose I took
another, and it was only a few days un
til I was free from the cough. I think
people in general ought to know the
value of this remedy, and I take pleas
ure in acknowledging the benefit I have
received from it. Madison Mcstabd,
