A few days ago Tub Chronicle spoke
of a man who had lain next to the track,
with his head on the rail, arid escaped
without injury. Today the Oregonian
reports the finding of his body. His in
juries must have escaped the, hasty ex
amination made by the trainmen; and
his apparent stupor from drunkenness
would have been the eame from the
blow received by the train.
The name of the man was M. M.
Brum met, evidently of St. Paul, Marion
. The body was not discovered until yes
terday morning, when the engineer ot
No. 1, coming west, about 7 o'clock, saw
what he thought was a man lying asleep
the fall but theI alongside the track. He reported the
lady was considerably frightened.--Dufu factatTroutclaleand the section boss,
on going to the place, found the man
dead, and also . cold and stiff, showing
that he had been dead many hours. The
remains were taken on a handcar to
Troutdale, and Coroner Cornelius tele
An examination of the body showed
the face cut open from the nose up
diagonally across the left eye, and the
skull crushed, the result of a blow from
the sharp edge of the cow' catcher on the
locomotive. The rest of the body was
intact, without even a'bruise, and the
jury's and coroner's conclusions were
that Brummet, who was under the in
fluence of liquor, had lain down outside
of the track, which sloped off, with hi
head resting on the track, in which poi
tion, and being drunk, be -fell into a
deep sleep, and. was a ready victim- for

The illustrated lecture on Russia last
night was very entertaining and in
structive, as previously promised. "The
Heart ot RnBsia" is Moscow and the
veiws were principally taken from that
city.' The chief buildings of interest
were the Kremlin and church of St.
Basil, the latter the most' fantastic and
gaudy-colored in existence. - The archi
tect was an Italian whose eyes were put
out by Ivan the Terrible for fear he
would design a handsomer one. The
Kremlin was the former palace of the
emperor, surrounded by sixteen miles of
walls of masonry, twenty feet high and
nineteen feet thick. The great need of
Russia is railroads. The lecturer drew
a contrast between the politics of Russia
and the United StateB. Towns and com
munities select their own mayor and
other officers by ballot, and not by ap
pointment as generally supposed. Dr.
be Kennet said that while in America a
tnan' would spend $10,000 to Been re a
S3 ,000 office, in Russia it was bard to
piduce a man to take an office, and had
to be coaxed and. flattered a good deal
before he would accept the nomination.
The cause of this, is there is no salary at
tached to Russian municipal' offices. la
like manner there are higher assemblies
of the. people who select judges and at
tend to governmental affairs much like
our state legislatures. . "" '.
The religion of Russia is the Greek
church, resembling the Roman Catholic
in some respects, bat there are four
principal points of difference. The Rus
sian church does not admit 'nor recog
nize the temporal power of the pope;
the priests must be married men instead
of celibates the churches have no seats ;
and the choirs are all composed of men.
Over the principal door which . leads to
the kremlin is a statue of Jesus, and no
living man oi. this earth may go through
that door without removing his hat, be
he monarch or plebeian. A very good
likeness of the present, emperor,
Nickolaus II, and the empress was
shown. Nickolaus was described by the
lecturer as being the beet of emperors,
the least autocratic, enterprising, and
well loved by his 120,000,000 subjects.
Leaving Russia, Dr. De Kannet pro
duced an excellent likeness of the Mid
winter fair, which be treated . with mar
velous, mechanical effects in lighting,
coloring, etc., the whole dissolving into
a patch of magnificent clouds, colored
with all the accuracy of nature. There
were also some excellent Columbia river
views, which drew forth the admiration
of the audience. The entertain ment con
cluded with a magnificent allegorical
picture of Columbia bearing tbe flag of
our country, prefaced by the remark,
"I will now show you a flag which never
Burglars at Hood Hirer.
The stores of A. S. Blowers & Co. and
R. Rand & -Son were burglarized last
Saturday night. Blowers' store , was
broken into' by prying off the outside
lock with a-pick. Nothing was taken
from this store, so far as could be no
ticed. The cash drawer was found to be
empty, and it is presumed money was
what they wanted. At Rand's store
they carried off the cash register,-and
taking .it over to E. L. Smith's barn,
bursted it open and secared $1.85. The
tools used by the burglars were secured
by first breaking into John R. Nickel-
sen s blacksmith shop.
