The world is a stage and many
freaks hold the boards. Freaks,
human and otherwise, are be
coming everlastingly common and
have to be considerably out of
the ordinary to attract even pass
ing notice. During the past few
days the most notable freak in
the human line to receive atten
tion is Miss Elizabeth Magie, a
stenographer of Chicago- She
offers herself for sale.
In quite a notable invoice of
her charms and "good qualities
this young woman offers herself
for sale to the highest bidder, as
a "white slave." She does not
state whether any and ail bids
may beN rejected, but the pre
sumption is that she makes a
mental reservation of that right.
From the statement of this wo
man it is evident she possesses
silk underwear tastes and a pock
et book that will permit gauze.
Some way this whole scheme
does not look nice and there is
something of the gentlewoman
lacking or Miss Magie could nev
er make such a proposition pub
lic. The only conclusion is that
she is gone, lost, or is going or
Nearly a year ago the Forest
Grove bank was robbed. Short
ly thereafter Cary D. Snyder, of
Hillsboro, was missing. His wife
at that time seemed loath to give
a very full and free account of
the affair so far as related to the
disappearance of her husband.
She maintained, however, the
declaration that she believed he
had been murdered. Just exact
ly why she should believe this
she never made clear." Recently
Snyder's body was discovered in
the woods near HillsborQ, and, as
his revolver was found nearby,
the first theory was that he had
committed suicide. Later the
idea that he had been murdered
gained the ascendancy. So far
as any definite action for the ap
prehension of those who might
have committed the deed is con
cerned there seems to be nothing
doing. At present the widow is
charging the authorities with in
competency and so the case rests.
William Randolph Hearst as
pires to the governorship of New
York. From what can be learned
of Willie he takes rank with the
greatest montebanks the United
States ever produced. He has
given sufficient evidence that if
he had the brains and the vocab
ulary he would say mean things
of all who stand between him
and the gratification of his am
bitions. Arthur Brisbane, Mr.
Hearst's hired brains, is doing
good work for his employer, but
all realize the difficulty under
which he labors.
Co-dducation is to be abolished
at the University of Chicago,
according to the latest decree. As
supposed to be
of learning is
a hotbed for
'freak" profes.-ors the thought
presents itself that possibly
thiy is some of their doings.
Sj. far as a reason for the
abolishment of co-education is
concerned silence is maintained.
It seems a pity that the boys are
to be denied the '-refining in
fluence" of the girls. We expect
bitter procests from the students.

Whatever raay be the fact as to many
of the so-cailed patent medicines con
taining injurious ingredients as broadly
published in some journals of more or
less influence, this publicity has certainly
been of great bcueiit in arousing needed
attention to this subject, It has, in a
considerable measure, resulted in the
iiost intelligent people avoiding such
foods and medicines as may be fairly sus
pected of containing the injurious incre
ments complained of. Eoeognhfng this
fact some time ago. Br. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y., "took time by the forelock," as it
were, and published troadcast all the
ingredients cf which his popular medi
cines are cosnrosod. Thus 4ie has com
