trial yesterday before a jury in Justice

by permitting his fish wheel to run Sun
days. The weather bureau bits it all right as
long as it confines its prognostications
to "fair," but when it goes to guessing
at the temperature, it misses it every
time. Yesterday it ordered warm wea

The 9-year-old son of John Parrott was
playing with another boy in Siddall's
house, in which the family have just
moved, the two amusing themselves by
hauling each other out of the cellar on a
lift provided for raising wood. The Par
rott boy was turning the windlass, the
other riding, when the handle slipped
out of his hands and the crank gave him
a hard blow on the head, cutting a gash
that required several stitches to close.
A few days ago in Walla Walla county,
while breaking a horee to ride, Frank
Brown was badly injured by the horse
rolling upon him. Brown was working
on the ranch of J. K. Wilson, where the
accident occurred. The horse finding he
could not throw the rider, quickly rolled
over, pinioning Brown to the ground.
When Brown was picked up it was found
that he was badly injured. A doctor was
called, who found that the spine had
been injured, and also concussion of the
brain bad resulted.

jBob Burdette eays : "A woman can

mmercial circles she cannot tie a pack
e to make it look like anything save a
crooked cross section of chaos ; but, land
of miracles! see what she can do with a
pin 1 I believe there are some women
who can pin a glass knob to a door.
She cannot walk so many miles around
a billiard table with nothing to eat and
nothing (to speak of) to drink, but she
can walk the floor all night with a fret
ful baby without going sound asleep the
first half hour.
"She can ride 500 miles without going
into the smoking car to rest (and get
away from the children). She can en
joy an evening visit without smoking
half a dozen cigars. She can go to town
and do a wearisome day's shopping
and have a good time with three or four
friends without drinking a keg of beer.
She can endure the torturing distraction
of a houseful of children all day, while
her husband cuffs them all howling to
bed before he has been home an hour.
"Every day she endures a dress that
would make an athlete swoon. She
will not, and possibly, cannot, walk 500
miles around a tanbark track in six
days for $5000, but she can walk 200
miles in ten hours up and down the
crowded aisles of a dry goods store when
there is a reduction sale going on. She
hath no skill at fence and knowetb not
how to spar, but when she javelins a
man in the ribs in a Christmas crowd
that man s whole family howls. She is
afraid ot a mouse and runs from a cow,
but a book agent can't scare her. She is
the salt of the church, the pepper of the
choir and the life of the sewing society,
and about all there is of a young ladies'
sctiool or nunnery."

Now that the dude journalist and silk
stocking miners are claiming the Clon
dyke "by right of discovery," it is inter
esting to note who were the pioneers of
the locality. W. J. Arkell, of the Les
lie's Weekly and Judge publications,
claims that bis expedition of 1890-91 was
the first to enter the region, and sends
out a fairy story to that effect over the
telegraph wires dated New York, July
23, claiming the Clondyke, "by right of
l discovery," for E. J. Claire, who beaded
the expedition, and himself, who organ
The first man to sail up the Yukon
and prospect the country in the vicinity
of Clondyke was Ed Schieffelin, the lo
cator of the mother lode at Tombstone,
Arizona, who recently passed away in
his lonely log cabin in the Cascade
mountains, where he had also been pros
pecting. This was in 1882, and very
:oon after he had disposed of his inter
ests in Tombstone, Arizona, mines. He
was fired with the possibilities of the up
per Yukon as a gold-producing region,
and, determining to get into it, ordered a
stern-wheel steamer constructed in San
Francisco and shipped to Juneau, to
which place he sailed from Portland.
The steamer was put together at Juneau
Legitimate laws of supply and demand
may at times be counterbalanced by
speculation, but they cannot always be
ignored with impunity. The advance in
wheat values during the week has been
long overdue. Nominally, it has been
caused by reported damages to the Rus
sian wheat crop. In reality, it is due to
depleted reserves and small crops. A
conservative statement of supplies at
home and abroad is as follows : Import
ing countries require 100,000,000 bushels
more than last year. The only coun
tries witb exportable surplus are Amer
ica and Russia. The latter, according to
the latest reports, will have less than
usual for export. America must there
fore reap the benefit of the increased ex
port demand. Fortunately, we have ex
cellent crop prospects, promising at pres
ent the second largest wheat crop ever
produced in this country. In this con
nection it must be borne in mind that
our reserves are practically exhausted,
and if they are to be replenished from
the coming crop, our exportable surplus
will not exceed that of last year by over
20,000,000 bushels. Importers are wak
inguptothe situation, and tbey have
been large and persistent buyers of
wheat in our markets during the week.
The resulting advance, while large and
rapid, is more than fully warranted, and
tendency of market is to advance still
