From the Philippines.
Jesse B. Lawrence, of Eugene,
now a bngler of Co. K, 35th U.
S. Vol. Inf., now in the Philip
pine islands, has written quite a
letter to the Eugene Guard for
publication. The writer- stated
that many ef the natives of the
islands would like to assume
friendly relations with the Amer
icans, but did not dare to as they
feared their own people. We
print the following extract from
the letter:
In the towns that I have been
during.the last dry season, many
natives have expressed a desire
to help Americans. However,
most of them do not come out
openly, yet there are some who
do. I suppose the public in gen
eral often wonder why it is that
the insurrection still continues
with snch force. This can easi
ly be explained. The present
forces, except in a lew cases, are
not found under arms. The guns
are safely hidden in rice paddies,
swamps and bamboo thickets
natil an attack is planned. Then
tne natives, or soldiers, uneover
their weapons and assemble at a
specified place, which is always
under cover. So you can see
that our forces are kept at a very
great disadvantage. Without the
aid 01 a tew natives, who can go
among the insurgents' lines and
learn their moves, or places of
concealmenfi of guns, we are en
tirely ignorant of their where
auts. Only during the past
few months have we had such
natives. Wonders have been
accomplished, too. It this new
Filipino army can be organized
it will do more than the . entire
American forces. At the present
state of affairs a native that turns
traitor to his people is very apt
to come up missing some morn
Put His Foot In It.
, Nearly everybody, both old
and young, have read the tales
of the "Arabian Nights." Those
who are posted will recall the
charming little story of the glass
merchant, or rather, peddler,
who passed from house to house
with his basket of glassware.
How he sat down on a door-step,
with his basket of" ware at his
feet, and indulged in one f
those "day dreams" that are
often of rare sweetness, but gen
erally subject to a rude awaken
ing. The merchant in question,
in his dream, multiplied his
profits until they assumed great
proportions and he erected "air
castles" of such splendor that he
concluded it behooved a man of
his standing to take unto him
self a wife. The wife ef his
"dream" disobeyed him and Be
went to kick her, when lol m
reality he kicked his basket of
glassware over and" ruined its
contents. Ia an instant he was
. -ifn - fit --v-:
fii-'iself again, face to face with
li' realities.
'e had "put bis foot in it."
Mi :: have been raising all sorts
of -old Ned" ver since with

A ( v or two ago a good farmer
anc: his wife came over from
Lim county to do some trad
ing. They had a basket con
taining twenty dozen eggs. The
gentleman went into a certain
business house and. asked the
price of eggs. On learningwhat
he could get per dozen he passed
out, stating that he would see
his wife and ascertain what she
thought about it. Time passed
and he did not return. The
merehanft was busy and soon for
got tne farmer with the eggs, or
concluded that his wife had made
up her rniud to trade elsewhere.
Later it was learned that he had
climbed into the wagon to get
the eggs, and in moving about,
unmindful of the frailness of
Linn county egg shells, had put
one of his No. io's into the
basket. Consternation and con
fusion reigned for a briet time.
His boot looked as though lie
had stirred a.cake with it. Like
the Arabian merchant he had
,,put his foot in it." No further
business was done that day and
the farmer and his wife drove
home in silence.
Doing the Grand.
The young ladies of O A C's
senior class entertained the young
men ot their class in Miss E. T.
Chamberlain's rooms at the col
lege, Friday evening. A fea
ture of the affair was that the
young ladies acted as escorts to
and from the place of entertain
ment, some of the boys were
evidently very bashful, for the
young ladies found a few gates
wired. One instance is recorded
where a young lady had to climb
the fence to reach the house.
The girls were a little afraid of
the "dark" and it is said that
each one carried a lantern. How
ever, the party was a great suo
cess in everv way. Games,
music, Kuessing-matclies and de
licious refreshments combined
make an evening seem quite
b: f. It is quietly reported that
01: young lady, whose heart
fa: d her whu the hour ar
rived that she v.-as to sally' forth
an escort the young man to the
pa: v, was giv. ua ducking in

The Western Hills.
A gentleman was up from Sa
lem a few days ago with a view
to securing an option on the out
put of the apple orchards during
the coming season. He stated
that he had just been over on
the west side of the summit of
the Coast range of mountains.
While over there he visited the
Bristow apple orchard near Sum
mit. He was delighted with
samples of last year's crop, and
sated that he had never seen
finer Baldwins. These apples
were reported to be firm-meated
and free from worms, and such a
deep rtd color that they almost
looked black. The gentleman
was quite enthusiastic in his
praise of the country lying on
the western slope ot this range
of mountains the entire lengtk
of the Oregon eoast and pre
dicted that some day it wonld be
the greatest apple-producing sec
tion in the state.
Few people realize what these
ranges will look like twenty-five
years heace. Much of the tim
ber will have been cut away by
the large lumbering companies.
In fact there is unusual activity
among lumbering men at the
present time to secure timber
rights. They will help in a
large measure to clear up the
land, which will then be taken
in hand by the agriculturists,
horticulturists and dairymen.
It will be an even break between
the horticulturists and dairymen
who Yfill take this section in
hand. The man who secares
a homestead in these Coast
ranges will never have cause to
regret such a move.
To Star in Badger Game.
Fayne Strahan EJoore. the
daughter of Oregon's late chief
justice, R. S. Strahan, who has
acquired so much notoriety in
both America and Europe during
the past few years, has been aur
ing the past season appearing at
the Gaiety Theatre, London, un
der the name of "Madeline Wil
son" in Messenger Boy. It is
now stated that she is about to
return to America, after dazzling
London and Paris and will blaze
forth in the theatrical world as a
star of more or less brilliancy,
appearing- in a dramatization of
the incidents of her New York
career that gave her so much
newspaper notoriety, and badger
trial fame.
A deal has practically been
closed whereby she will appear
in this country next season as a
star. The managers rely on the
third act of the lurid mele-drama
to score its success. In this act
Mrs. Moore, wh assumes the
role of an adventuress, will
enact as nearly as possible, the
alleged badger game, of whioh
the late Gearge C. Mahon com.
plained in court.

Bicycle paths will this year be
used only by wheelmen who are
willing to pay a tax of $1 towards
their maintenance. This is the
latest construction placed upon the
law enacted by the state. legislature
at its late session. While the law
was passed too late to permit of the
path levy, the provision of the act
restricting the privileges of bicycle
paths to those who pay the tax is
plain. There is no question about
this feature of the law, and- cyclists
know that their use of paths with
out the payment of the $1 tax lays
them liable to prosecution. The
sheriff is allowed nothing for col
lecting these taxes, nor are his
deputies allowed anything for mak
ing arrests for violations. A penal
ty of $5 is in store for those viola
ting the law.
