OLD TOURAINE IS HISTORIC
Marvels of Nature and Beauty Drew
Many of Noble Family to
i the District.
Touraine is as rich in historic
interest as it is in its natural beau
ties, declares Frederic Lees, in
Architectural Record. The house
of Valois had a special liking for
the banks of the Loire, and the
great, nobles of their court built
near the royal residences their
own chateaux marvels of archi
tectural . grace, V strength and
beauty, but of which there is not
a stone that is not cemented with
blood. For the Valois lived in an
atmosphere of intrigue, f raud and
violence. They were always being
conspired against, and they met
plot with counter plot; if treason
could not be met with force, a sud
den surprise or stab in the dark,
or the malignant skill of some Ital
ian chemist, laid to rest forever
suspicions which might have been
unfounded. It is but fair to state,
however, that this was not often
the case, for the nobles were tur
bulent and ambitious, and when
hot engaged in waging war openly
or covertly with their soverign,
quarreled among themselves, and
led forth theirretainers to surprise
3i- besiege a neighboring castle.
On the battlement of every don
jon there was a watchman, day
and night, ever on the lookout for
the glint of arms in the valley be
low; and ready to his hand was a
huge horn, one blast of which
would alarm the garrison . and
bring them to the walls. A few
feet below the watchman there
dangled from a jutting beam the
corpse of some poor wretch, and
in the loathsome dungeons be
neath the moat others were
chained to the reeking walls, for
every castellan had the right of
administering "greater and lesser
justice," and could dispose of the
lives and liberties of his vassals as
he deemed fit. He had other priv
ileges also, some of which make
as wonder why the revolution did
not pome earlier.

GREAT PROFIT FROM DOGS
Host Important Branch of Manchu
rian Trade Is Selling1 of Canine
' and Goat Skins.
By far the most important
branch of the skin and fur trade of
Manchuria consists of the skins of
the domesticated animals the
dog and the goat, says Hosie's
"Ma nchuria." Many thousands of
these skins are annually exported
from Niuchwang and Tientsin and
ultimately find their way princi
pally to the United States.
There are thousands of small
dog and goat farms scattered over
the northern districts of Man
churia and Mongolia where from
ten to hundreds of animals are
reared yearly. VTien a girl is mar
ried she receives perhaps six dogs
as her dowry, and it can be easily un
derstood that this comparatively
small beginning may be the foun
dation of a large fortune, seeing
that the reproduction of ten per
annum would in a few years give
an enormous total. A dog matures
in from six to eight months, and
the fur is at its best during the
winter; so that the animal must
be destroyed before the thaw sets
in. Nature has provided a magnifi
cent protection to withstand the
c old of these northern latitudes,
'n.-T,ore ti,e thermometer (Fahreti'
he it) goes down to 25 degrees be
low zero i. e.. 57 degrees of frost
and it is doubtful if dog skins in
pny other part of the world are to
' compared with those that come
f om Manchuria or . Mongolia,
c'rher in size, length of hair or
fiality. The" question of food for
go many animals naturally pre
sets itself. If they had to be kept
entirely by their masters the in
retry would not be a pnyine one.

pot good enough for. the horses

To Ship Pheasants. .
'Gene Simpson, of this city,
has at present in the neighbor
hood of 300 young China ph?a
sants that he has raised this sea
son.: He has had splendid . suc
cess, the reward for unusual care
on his part. There is scarcely a
week goes by1 now without an
order from parties in other states
for "pheasants. Yesterday he
shipped a pair of pheasants to
Redwood City, California, and
another pair to Pueblo, Colorado.
Within a day or two be will
send a pair of pheasants to parties
in Illinois. The .game warden
at the Lewis and Clark Fair re
cetftly requested Mr. Simpson to
send him some very young birds
tor exhibition purposes. Mr.
Simpson thought it too risky to
send such young pheasants as
were requested, but sent down
some young birds that he con
sidered "weaned.!' v
The law is very strict on the
matter of sending these birds to
parties without the state. There
is a form to be filled out by the
party raising the pheasants in
case he desires to send them from
the state. This form after being
filled out and duly sworn to be
fore a notary public has to be
forwarded to the . state game
warden for his approval before
the birds may be shipped. In
order to snow the requirements
of the law we hereby produce a
form it is necessary to fill out, as

For some time the board of
directors of the M- E. church of
this city have been figuring on
making some very elaborate im
provements on their building.
Yesterday morning the contract
for doing the work was awarded
to Charles Heckart.
The entire structure is to be
enlarged. The building will be
raised some three or four feet and
a 10-foot basement constructed.
It is proposed to divide the base
ment into various rooms accord
ing to requirements. A very fine
entrance is to be built in the east
end of the church in addition to
the one already ip use. Another
entrance is to be made at the
southwest corner of the church.
Along, the entire south side of
the edifice an addition is to be
built and this is ro be divided in
to a library, r.-ception room,
lobbv, etc.; Altogether, ihe pro
posed improvements are to foot
up to about $5,000. The im
provements to be undertaken at
once by Mr. Heckart are to cost
in the neighborhood of $3,000,
most likely a litt!e in excess ot
this sum. When all . details of
the present plans have "been car
ried out it is thought that this
will be as fine as any' church in
the state outside of Portland.
Last Thursday aftevnoon while hauling
bundles preparatory to stacking their
giain Martin and Terry Butler were bad
ly injured, caused by over turning of
their wagon. Doubtless they owe their
lives to the fact that the, wagon fell over
against an oak tree, thus saving them
from being pinned under the load.
