careful citizen to have his supply on
hand just the same.

The men who were arrested yesterday
charged with burglarizing Mays Sc.
Crowe's store had their preliminary ex

today, and were bound over to appear
before the grand jury, in November. In

county's expense until their trial comes

Floyd Harmon and Charley Tibbets
arrived home from Lyle last night.
They expected to bring home at least
one bear, but on arriving at home Floyd
found that his bear dog had been poi
soned, and that settled the bear hunt,
as a dog is just as necessary in catching
a bear as whiskey is in catching a vote.
They had a good time, however, and
killed four dozen grouse and pheasants.
Miss Hall arrived from Portland today,
and will open the kindergarten- school in
the small building known as the annex
to the frame school house. Miss Hall
has had a wide experience in teaching
and will no doubt make the kindergarten
a pleasing success. We advise parents
to call and see the manner in which the
school is conducted, for to those who
never saw a kindergarten it is really
something new under the sun.

Mr. Doolittle we do not know but we do
know Sam Hyde.- He is one of the
brainiest, broadest gauged, whole-souled
fellows in the world. . As a lawyer he is
the peer of any on the coast, and as
citizen as good as they make them. Sam
Hyde will capture many, a democratic
vote because lots of democrats know him
and if you know him, gentle read, there
is no need to eay more. -
Tht- burglarizing of Mays & Crowe
store is quite a common occurrence, ow
ing perhaps to the extra quality of
goods they display. Its a hard game
too. Of the last two burglaries the
results are sufficiently serious to deter
others from making the attempt. The
result figures up this way : One bur
glar killed, one wounded and in jail
waiting a trial for mnrder in the TJ. S
court, one Indian killed, and one of the
criminals serving a two years' sentence
in the penitentiary,' and two others iu
Dunbar jail awaiting trial. Mays & Crone
present store is a hoodoo for burglars sure.
The Australian Stripper, the harvest
ing machine of which five were made at
Grant a year or so ago, promises to rev
olutionize the system of harvesting.
The machines made are all at work in
Sherman county, and will cut about fif
teen acres a day, and can be operated by
two men and four horses. Not only
does the machine cut the grain, but it
also threshes it, all that is required to
complete the work being the running of
the threshed grain through a fanning
mill. The machines can be sold for
about $150 to $200, two of them costing
less than one header, and leaving the
grain so that the farmer can do the bal
ance of the work with a windmill, sav
ing all the expense of threshing. The
machines made at Grant cut five or five
and a half feet, but there is no reason
why they should not be made to cut as
much as a header.
We believe it is to be the coming har
vesting machine, and one that will
make it possible for the farmer to live,
even at the present low price of wheat.

An accident occurred in Dr. Davis'
hopyard at Harrisbnrg on last Saturday,
which resulted in the death of Miss Ma-
linda Grobe, a girl of about 13 years of
ago, whose family life near Creswell,
and had come to pick hops. Coroner J.
A. Jayne was called and impaneled a
jury and the following facts were devel
oped : Willie Brownlee, a lad of about
12 years, and a resident of Eugene City,
and another boy undertook to chop
down a sapling near the tent where Miss
Grobe's folks were camped, and Mi88
Grobe ordered them off, and upon their
refusal to go she procured a sprout about
six feet long and proceeded to give them
a sound threshing, and Willie retaliated
by throwing a small club, striking her
behind the ear. She became uncon
scious at once and remained so until
death, which occurred on Sunday morn
ing. A post mortem examination was
held, with Drs. DuGas and Kelly pres
ent. It was found that a blood vessel
had burst inside of the skull, from which
death ensued. A warrant for the
arrest of Brownlee has been issued, but
up to this writing he has not been
found. Albany Herald.
Notice to Water Consumers.
The charges for patent closets when
used when necessary only, is 25 cents,
but when a constant stream is allowed
to flow, the charge is $5 per month. In
the last two years a large number of
closets have been put in, and in a large
number of ' them a constant stream is
allowed to flow. The drain on the water
supply has become so great that I am
compelled to enforce the rules, and will
hereafter charge $5 per month for all
closets using a constant stream of water,
