found a fabulously rich gold mine near

shown him 'a sample of free milling ore
containing gold in flakes and layers, and
asserting that he found the mineral a
few miles from Centralia. It was re
ported that George Rhodes make an
assay of the stuff, which showed that it

4000 and 5000 tons of outfits and mer

When John Allen of Willow creek re
turned to his home from a trip to the
timber last Wednesday, he found a note
in his wife's handwriting saying that
although she had nothing particular
against liira, she had made up her mind
to have a change and had left him for
good, adding that she had taken the boy
along (the youngest in a family of three)
and would raise him for his father and
send him back when he grew up to be
of any help. Mr. Allen discovered later
that the fellow with whom Mrs. Allen
eloped is a freighter named Chamberlin,
but from whence he came is not known
at this writing. It is known, however,
that the elopers started northward tow
ard The Dalles, and at last accounts the
injured husband was following their
trail with blood in bis eye and a big

the hand he shoots with.

woman, if somewhat rough in manner,
