Another chapter Is added to the
Lco-Flshcr "mysterious" weddlnc.
The father of the bride now shows
up nnd Is ns much surprised nt the
wedding which took place about six
months ago, as were the companions
of Lee when he made the announce
ment at Daker City.
John Fisher, a man with a brogue,
and blood In his eye, cnme Into the
East Oregonlan office yesterday after
noon and said that ho had heard that
a notice of the marriage of his (laugh
tor, Elsie, to Herbert Lee. had been
published In this paper. The paper
was produced and Fisher read with
"This is an eye-opener," he Bald.
"This clears up the mystery. But
there is more behind It all. I see
through the scheme now!" Then he
nodded Ills head knowingly and sat
In silence for a few minutes.
"So he has really married the girl."
said Fisher. "Wonder what he did
with my wife and horse? They are
still missing and unaccounted for.
Ho took them all away together. I
took that fellow In out of the cold
and now he is trying to do me. I
understand. They are going to gob
ble that Kansas farm."
It will be remembered that last
week the Baker City papers announc
ed that Hoibert Lee, a popular clerk
in a hardware store, had surprised
his friends by announcing his mar
riage which had taken place six
months previously. The pnpers also
spoke of Lee treating his friends
over the matter and his friends treat
ing him. He had perpetrated a good
joke, they thought, by coming down
to Pendleton last April and plucking
one of Its most beautiful flowers 'and
transplanting it from this garden
spot Into the nugget-laden soil of Ba
ker. The papers failed to state who
the bride was before the marriage,
and an East Oregonlan representa

Formosa Will Exhibit.
World's Fair, St. Louis. Oct. 7.
James W. Davidson. United States
consul at Daltotel, Tnmsul, Island of
Formosa, writes President Francis,
of the World's Fair that Formosa
will linve a large exhibit. The United
States are the greatest patrons of
Formosn, consuming 90 per cent of
her export tens and buying extensive

Is a teamster, among other things,

the timo nt Adams. Ho hnd been
away on a hauling trip last spring,
nnd when he returned to his reserva
tion place he found a note on a
slate 'stating: "Papa: Mamma is
sick and wo have gone to Adams."
Time rolled on and they returned.
Again he found the same statement
on the slate. It was June now and
election time. Fisher Is patriotic,
and went to Adams to cast his vote
nnd incidentally visit his sick wife.
Here was where the pathetic side
came In. He found that his wife nnd
daughter,, and also his horse were
showing not only her varied products
but the methods of preparing them
for use. The novol methods adopted
by Japan t oteach the Japanese lan
guage to the Chinese Formosans may

some of the wildest people of the
world, who last year secured some
600 human heads from the frontier
districts of the Island.
