tumult of the present political
campaign in Oregon., the prohi

and other problems of the day,
do not bother Nellie Biirkner. the
little hermit woman of Butte
In fact she has never heard
of Julius Meier or Phil Metschan,
and what is more she doesn't
want to. In the seclusion of her
tiny cottage, situated on a little
flat above Butte creek she has liv
ed since 1892. Following the
death of her father, in 1909, she
never set foot off her ranch for
18 years. Neighbors brought her
the few supplies she needed.
Only lately her neighbors, Mr.
and Mrs. Jake Blersack, have per
suaded her to come up and see
them. At first the little hermit
was very hy, but now she comes
" every day, weather permitting,
and listens to the radio. How
ever, she has to go home early,
so has missed the pleasure of
hearing Amos and Andy.

Mrs. Storey Cannon, who
lives on the highway two or three
miles south of town, turned from
the telephone yesterday afternoon
when she heard her dog fussing.
She had been telling a friend
about a queer looking stranger
who had asked for food at her
home that morning.
As she turned, the stranger
himself grabbed her by the arm,
telling her 'I'll learn you to make
fun of a poor cripple like me."
He hit her a glancing blow on
the chin and mouth and struck
her again on the back of the
head, she told Deputy Sheriff
Sheriff Bert Smith who investi
gated at her call.
Her right arm bore bruises se

of the man's four fingers. The
man entered the home as she was
using the telephone.

screamed, and when a neighbor
