"THE PARISH PRIEST."
Dan Sully at Frazer's Opera House
on the 12th Instant.
From tho title, "The Parish Priest,"
one would judge that Daniel Sully's
now production was a strictly relig
ious one. On the contrary, Father
Whalen, tho role assumed by Mr. Sul
ly, is a man, human like other men,
fond of visiting his flock, capable of
telling a story of mingled pathos and
humor, that will bring a tear to the
eye one minute or a smile to the
Hp the next. Not the kind of priest
you read of, but one, like thousands
of them, to be found every day, lend
ing a helping hand to the poor and
needy, hopeful and strong in tho hour
of trouble with a cheery word and
look to chase away the gloom, and
bring the sunshine into heart and
home once again. In fact, a character
that only to come in contact with
makes life seem the brighter and
It is needless to say in this charac
ter, Mr. Sully has made tho hit of his
stellar career. But realizing one man
does not make the play,. Mr. Sully has
surrounded himself with an excellent
cast. The sale of seats will open

Nothing Criminal Against W. E. Bond
the Athena Mill Manager.
On motion of District Attorney
Hailoy, tho charges preferred a month
ago against W. B. Bond, manager of
the Athena Flouring Mill Company,
by C. H. Brown, charging defendant
with misappropriating grain belonging
to plaintiff which had been stored
with the flouring mill, have been dis
missed on the ground that there was
no cause for action. Tho arrest came
as a sequel to the suits brought
against the Athena Flouring Mill
Company by a number of farmers to
recover grain that had been stored in
the company's care, but which had
been used and not paid for. Mr. Bond
was arrested because he was mana
ger of the company and was charged
with fraud in connection with the use
of the grain.

" CAPTAIN NU"
MET AT DEPOT BY
A LARGE CROWD.
Several Men Around Town Recognize
Him as Being Their "Friend of For
mer Days," But He Denies the Soft
Quite n crowd of curious people
wore at tho O. R. & N. depot Wednes
day ovenlng to meet Sheriff Blakley
and E. R. Ferguson when they stop
ped off tho train with J. Sherwood,
alias Captain McCook, who Is wanted
hero for passing bogus checks on sev
eral of his quickly acquired frlonds,
while spending a few days hero last
summer, under tho guise of being an
army ofllcer buying horses for the
government When tho officers step
ped off tho train with his prisoner,
-several of the men who were "done"
by the wily "regular army man," rec
ognized him and said they would be
willing to swear that ho is McCook,
although he had let his beard grow
since being hero.
J Sherwood, alias McCook, stoutly
denies being the smooth Captain Mc
Cook and says he was never In Pen
Denied the Acquaintance.
When confronted by Mr. crguson,
who went to Portland ot Identify him,
Ferguson said: t
"Do you know me, Captain Mc
Cook?" "Never met you before," replied the
"You never took drives with mo' at
Pendleton last summer?" continued
"No sir"; answered the prisoner,
Mr. Ferguson then quit questioning
him, but positively asserts that he is
the man who passed himself as Cap
tain McCook, unless he has a twin
brother who cannot be told from him
self. The hotel dark in Portland, who
was the cause of the arrest of Sher
wood, alias McCook, in telling about
him when there last summer, said:
"Sherwood lived at our hotel last
summer and he gave me a letter to
Captain Schley, son of Admiral
Schley, who was at Fort Douglas. He
told me that he was to have charge of
that post, and when I phoned over
there they said they had never heard
of Captain McCook."
"Did" an Army Officer.
Tho police say that after Sherwood
left Portland he went to Spokane and
met an army officer there to whom
he introduced himself as a person
who had met the ofllcer at a dance
given at Washington, D. C, some lit
tle time previously. Sherwood men
tioned several people ho knew in
"Washington, and the names of the
people he said he know wero so well
known to the ofllcer that the latter
parted soon afterward with $100 of
his money for one of Sherwood's
Then McCook left Spokane, as sud
denly as he did Pendleton, and his
whereabouts were not known until he
turned up in Portland to meet S. M.
Talt, from whom he showed a letter
ofterlng him a position with a rail
road company in Mexico, and he went
to Portland with the intention of go
ing with Tait to take the position.
Talt did not hsow up as promised, and
instead, Mr. Sherwood, alias McCook,
was taken in.
Captain McCook's 8tory.
When seen in jail this morning by
a reporter, J. Sherwood, alias Captain
McCook, shook tho newspaper man's
hand and said that he was glad to
meet him, but would make no state
ment lor publication. He said his
name was Sherwood and that ho could
prove that he never went by the
name of McCook or swindled any man
out of a dollar. "I can prove where
I have been and what I have been do
ing every day of the last eight
months, which includes the time Mc
Cook was here, and, although it is a
disgrace to be arrested and in jail,
I do not fear for the outcome as I
can prove my innocence by some of
tho most influential men In Tacoma
and Seattle, where I have been em
ployed in very responsible positions
and have done a great deal of busi
ness with the banks. I have attor
noys In Portland, Jiut it was not so
they could come up with me and
have not, employed any one hero to
defend me. 1 expect to havo my pro
Ilmlnary trial today wheml will prove
my innocence of tho charge and be
able to go my way."
Before Justice Fitz Gerald,
Sherwood, or McCook, was taken.
before Judge Fltz Gerald this .fore
noon for arraignment, but It was post
poned until Monday In order to give
tho prisoner a chance to get some
one here to identify him. His bonds
were set at $500.
The occasional ad is one of the very
best methods by which to squander
money. Continuous advertising, on
the other hand, will bring ample 're
turns for the money Invested. Sug

Portland, to recover $2000 Insurance
on a benefit certificate issued to her

The village poultrymun raising fifty
to a hundred chicks or tho farmer who
plnns to produce two or more hundred
birds will get good results from the old
combination of comment, bran and
meat scraps. Three measures of bran,
three of cornmeal and one of dried
meat and bone form a feeding ration
hard to improve upon. This should be
mixed with boiling water and nllowed
to stand nn hour before using. For
chicks under four weeks of ago it Is
mucb safer to put this mash In milk
pans and bake in a slow oven two
hours. This baked food keeps without
souring for several days and lessens
the dnnger of diarrhea.
Coat of Keeping a "lien.
There Is considerable difference of
opinion as to how much is costs to
keep a hen. The cost depends upon
the hen's ability to forage. It is a sav
ing and clear gain to convert refuse
into eggs nnd meat. The cost of keep
ing a hen has been variously estimated
nt from BO cents to $1.50 n year. It
costs more In tho northern states than
in the southern states. It costs more If
the hens arc confined than If fhoy are
allowed to run.
