In the olden times when satan
lost the kingdom and was hurled
to hell, from morn to noon he fell;
from noon to dewey eve, and at
the setting of the sun descended
upon Agean isle.
Last .Sunday evening there was
staged in the southern part af
Marion county a terrific combat,
a combat that would have done
credit to the toreador of Mexico
and the best bull that ever en
tered the arena. It was a niighty
fight between man and animal.
For 20 minuter the man saved his
life, expecting to lose it momen
tarily by holding the bull by the
ring in his nose and one horn.
There were perilous moments
when the hull, with terrific force
would work his head in an effort
to doisembowel the man, and so
close did 'the horn come that the
clothes were torn off, and a. naked
body was protected only by the
strength born of emergency.
The bull put one knee.on the
man's chest and, acting almost hu
man, was about to let down his
whole weight, which would have
been fatal in an instant. In some
way,! the man knows not how," he
wiggled out and the -bull came
down on the ground.
The battle was net over.'but the
man had scored his first advan
tage. Thereafter every effort
showed intelligence gaining over
brute force. Although the v bull
was on top, the man, hy smaii,
movements finally worked his body
from' under the bull, and held the
bull's head solid to the ground un
til both were exhausted. They
could not endure much longer. It
was then the bull stepped back, or
the first time showing any relax
ation of his determination to kill
hte antagonist. The man made the
most of it. He put his head to
work and began to shove the bull
back. Another minute and the
man's strength; would, have been
gone, but gathering himself for one
final effort, he pulled his body to
the front, pushed the bull back
and was on his feet. The bull was
on his knees. The battle was over.
The bull gave up, and the breath
less man realized for the first time
the perilous situation in which he
was placed. He shoved the bull
over on one side. The maji knew
he was fighting for his life, but he
fought without thinking of his
peril; he fought for his life as an
animal would fight, and he won
because, in addition to his actual
strength, he used his intelligence.
The bull had only brute force; in
that they were matched. , Brain
won over brawn because brain di
rected the man's strength, and not
an ounce of it was wasted.
For 20 minutes the fight raged,
for 20 minutes the man held the
bull at bay, until finally intelli
gence won and he dragged himself
inch by inch from under the in
furiated creature and stood a con
queror. This fight occurred near
Jefferson last' Sunday evening.
James Sharp was the man and a
Jersey bull was the animal.

TO BE DOUBLED
A recommendation of the Demo
cratic national committee that the
number of delegates at large . to
the national convention be doubled
and half of them be women, can
not be followed In Oregon, accord
ing to an opinion written by At
torney General Van Winkle today
on inquiry by Sam A. Kozer, sec
retary of state. This was a pro
posal by the Democratic national
committee to give adequate repre
sentation to women, and It was
proposed that each delegate have
half a vote.
While the proposal Is not quite
clear in the minds of Oregon of
ficials, it would apparently have
the effect of increasing the Oregon
delegation from 10 to 14.
The attorney general held that
such recommendation is too indefi
nite and uncertain to authorize
the secretary of state to act upon
i. since no authority is vested In
that office to decide upon such
substitution, and no other reso
lution or order of the national
Democratic committee has been re
ceived authorizing the same.
It was further held that since
the constitution and statutes of
Oregon provide that in all elections
authorized by the constitution, un
less otherwise provided by law.
the person or persons receiving the
highest number of votes shall be
elected, it would be possible foH
eight men or eight women to re
ceive the highest number of votes
for delegates at large to the Dem
ocratic national convention, thus
