He Is Accused of Selling a Band of
Horses at La Grande In Which
There Were at Least Two Stolen
The Blue Mountain Eagle says that
Tim Townsend and W. J. Robinson,
held under bonds under a charge of
horse stealing, are und,er arrest on
another charge of the samo nature,
preferred by W. F. White, who makes
the claim that he had two head of
horses in the band the accused men
sold at La Grande prior to their ar
rest in Pendleton from which nlaoo
' they were taken to Canyon City for
i rnkl. 1 a . . i
" iuis luai case was 10 nave
been tried last Monday before Judge
Ilulison, but was postponed until
next Monday when they will have a
hearing. The Eagle states that it is
not on the "inside" but it is intimated
that some interesting developments
will come to light before the cases
against Robinson and Townsend are
disposed of.
Townsend, it will bo remembered
by many people of Pendleton, was
arrested here last winter on the
charge of horse stealing preferred by
stock men of Grant county. Ho was
taken into custody by the Umatilla
county officers and turned over to the
constable from Monument, who start
ed with his prisoner for Canyon City.
Quite a little stir was occasioned
here tho next day by the report that
the officer had been overpowered by
the irate stock men of the interior
and prisoner lynched near Ukiah.
This report, however, was untrue and
Townsend reached his destination in
safety. Hobinson was arrested about
the samo time, and they were both
held, being placed .under bonds, but
they have not as yet been convicted
of the charge.

Call all the others what you will;
but when all iB said and told, and
retold, there is a circus which is in
Northern Pacific Lands.
AH Northern Pacific railroad lands
throughout the Northwest had been
withdrawn from the market for tho
purpose of releasing. It is believed
that whan the prices are promulgated
they will be from 50 to 200 per cent
higher than formerly. While, tho
lands belonging to tho company are
not off the market in the sense that
no sales' will be made, there is now
no price list by which the local agents
are governed and it is impossible for
them to make, quotations without first
wiring a query to tho Northern Pa
cific land commissioner at Tacoma.
It is thought two weeks will elapse
before tho new prices are made public.
Tenant: "Say, what In the name of everything Is that frightful racket

Landlord: "Oh, that's nothing. You know, a hypnotist lives there, and
he tries to 'will' his wife to do things."

Commenting on the highway law of
the Empire Stnti the New York Times
in n recent Issue paid:
The legislation heretofore enacted for
the improvement of the roads of the
state is good as fnr as It goes, but it Is
not likely to go very far In tho lifetime
of the youngest of our renders. It pro
vides for state nld to towns that arc
willing to contribute their part to bet
ter roads built under tho direction of
the state. Up to the present time wo
believe that only 300 miles of tho fi.OOO
in the slnte are bcnclltcd by this law.
Tho highway alliance, whoso purpose
Is to "increase the usefulness of high
ways," proposes that the plan now In
operation In towns generally shall bo

The Place to Save Money
so changed that the resources avail
able, which are very considerable, shall
be applied tinder state direction.
At present each property owner Is re
quired to pay his share of the amount
voted for roads, but Is nt liberty to
work out the tax at the rate of one
day's labor for each dollar due by him.
The work, whether voluutnry or hired,
Is done when and where the path mas.
Icr and the highway commissioner may
direct. The change urged Is that all
payment of roud taxes In labor shall
be done away with, that all taxes shall
be paid In money and that tho money
shall be expended under the direction
of the skilled and trained ofllclals of
the state.
There can be no doubt that this ar
rangement would secure yery much
better return for the money of the va
rious towns than Is got at present. No
ouo need be a great traveler in tho In
terior of our state to know that tho
general condition of the roads is bad
and that the badness is tremendously
costly. It Is quite common to see a
fairly good road passing from the area
of one town become a wretched road
In the next, und the proportion of the
latter In many times greater than that
of the former,
As a. rule tho actual cost of the de
cent rouds Is not appreciably larger
than that of tho bad ones. Tho mon
ey Is used In ono case and wasted In
thu other. Tho plan suggested would
not Increase, as we understand It, tho
amount collected for roads. It would
simply securo an Immensely better re
turn for It. And this return would he

Ono nivlil.il by 11 lliilf.
If you ask tho man In tho street tho
simple question, What Is otiu divided
by a hair? he will either reply that tho
operation Is an Impossible one or that
the answer Is a hair. When you point
out that one divided by two Is a half,
he will see that there. Is something
wrong somewhere, but will still bo
quite tumble to give the right answer.
When you tell him that the nnswer Is
two, ho will either accept the assertion
without understanding It or will dis
pute It tooth and anil, If you attempt
to convince' him of his error, you will
(Ind It Is not at all an easy task.
Ills mistake arises through tho con-
I'oundlng of (wo distinct Ideas namely,
one divided Into two and ono divided
by two. One divided into two Is ono
divided Into two parts, each part con
taining a half. One divided by two In
the ratio of one to two or tho number
or times two Is contained In one. To
any one who has thought thu matter
out this seems clear enough, but to the
man In the street It Is sheer nonsense
and ho will tell you so. KansitH City

The following correspondence, ending
In true Irish fashion, actually passed
between two men In England some
years ago:
"Air. Thompson presents his compli
ments to .Mr, Simpson and begs to re
quest that ho will keep his doggs from
trespassing on his grounds."
".Mr, Simpson presents his coiupll-
monts to Mr. Thompson and begs to
suggest that In future ho should not
spell 'dogs' with two gees."
"Mr Thompson's respects to Mr.
Hlmpson ami will feel obliged if ho will
add tho letter 'e' to tho last word In tho
note Just received, so us to represent
Mr, Simpson and lady."
"Mr. Simpson returns Mr. Thomp
