Paving operations for the year
have ended, and Commissioner W.
S., Low announced yesterday that
the entire - crew of 10 " men had
been laid off for the season. ?
These men will be" absorbed in
In other city work Just as soon as
any la available. It As possible
that many ot them will be assigned
to work on the ; new t sewer pro-J
gsam when It Is inaugurated.
Prevailing rains made necessary
the stopping of paving operations
much sooner than It was earlier
expected.; The crew was working
on Jefferson street, and had com-!
pleted about ong block of it before
the halt was called. . .
Cltlxens of that district yester-i
day - urged .Commissioner Low ; to
endeavor to-complete paving that
street this season; but "the- com
missioner indicated that "any pay
lng done now would be necessarily
of poor, quality due to the soft,
muddy soil, and the cost would' be
nearly twice aa great. ,"J: Lumber
was laid on the street to, make
passage this winter possible.
a loiai or izz blocks were
paved during the season with the
big and small mixer. These blocks
consisted of a much greater yard
age than was paved last year, but
the total was a bit short of the
quota set at the beginning of the
year. Commissioner Low estimated
that about 20 . blocks more could
have been 'paved had rainfall not
been so heavy. '

The Chemawa Indian school res
ervation was' placed under strict
Quarantine yesterday- by - Dr.
George R. Vehrs, when 15 cases
of smallpox, previously diagnosed
as ; chicken- pox, and one case of
infantile paralysis were discovered
at the school. . -
The smallpox has been prevalent
at the school four or fire weeks,
but no .quarantine was established
as the" physician ' in attendance
thought-that it was the less sev
ere . disease. Dr. .Verne Hamilton
was ' the physician at Chemawa
until "yesterday when he left for
La Grande to take over a practice
there. When Dr. Vehrs took charge
of the school, he called Dr. Ver
non Douglas, deputy health offic
er, to investigate the infantile par
alysis case," and the smallpox was
discovered at that time. " -
All the afflicted students were
immediately Isolated in the school
hospital, and a 'quarantine estab
lished around the entire area by
Dr. Vehrs. The county health of
ficer has no Jurisdiction there as
it is federal territory. : -
Just how the epedemie started
has not been fully determined,
but it is believed that it was
brought: in by an Alaskan pupil. '
Richard Matte, the ten year old
Indian pupil, who has a mild' at-!
tack of infantile paralysis was Is
olated in a special ward. He has
been at the school for two years,
and Just where the germs came
from is not' known. - "
Starting at 9 o'clock this morn
ing. Dr. Vehrs will vaccinate all
the pupils who are not ill. ' As
there are about 1000 of them it
will be a long process.
Three other cases of sm allpox
are known to the health officer
at this time, .one in West Salem
and two near 'Donald. ,

An unusual case in which were'
mixed elements of pathos and hum
or, was- brought to the attention
of District Attorney John Carson
yesterday when, a woman with ten
dependent children appealed to his
office for, help In getting back a
susband who deserted her a few
days ago. The woman's name-Is
being withheld from publication.
The'woman was referred to Mrs.
Nona White, Marion county pro
bation officer., "who ; elicited the
following story from her:
She said she had ' been living
near Mlnot, N. p., nd vhad lost
her husband in disastrous prairie
fire that swept over the . plains
there aboct a year ago. She was
left- with seven children. During
the past' summer she got into cor
respondence with a man out here
in Salem : whom she had known
previously in North Dakota. He
was a widower and the father ot
three children. . He pursuaded her
to come west and marry him. .
A tew weeks ago she found her
self destitute of aid and with no
prospects of being able to finance
herself or feed her children over
the winter. She appealed to the
county court at Minot for assist
ance to get out to Salem where
she had a home to go to, o she
told the court.. That, body advanc
ed her the funds to make the trip,
possibly feeling that it was the
cheapest way out of a bad situs
tlon. ..
When she arrived in Salem she
found the man waiting for , her
and they were married without de
lay. He had written her that he
was well possessed of the world's
goods and everything would be
lovely once she got here. She soon
found to her sorrow that he had
nothing. Within ' a few. days he
