Dick Kiger and George Brown
are "traders from away back."
Brown wanted that good horse
driven by Kiger; and the latter
coveted that field of vetch and
oats down in the bottom, so they
got down to business and fixed
up a deal. While Brown was
pulling on the ribbons behind
the fine animal, Kiger was
sweating in the field taking eare
of his crop. Dick has just fin
ished threshing 700 bushels of
vetch seed and had 340 bushels
of oats, and is now busy figuring
what he got for the horse.

home of Arthur Lilly, south of

o'clock Mr. Lilly heard some
one approach the rear door of ;
the kitchen and open it, as the
lock had not been turned that
night. Slipping into a room up J
stairs directly over the kitchen, j
Mr. Lilly went to a window and
let out a yell that must havei

on end, and before Mr. Lilly
could rush down stairs and get
his gun there was no sign of the
visitor. The McBee girls were
at the house, sleeping down
stairs, and at two o'clock the
same night they heard some one
again attempt to force an en
trance to the house, but the doors
had been bolted after the first
alarm and the prowler evidently

That truth is stranger than
fiction is a fact frequently dem
onstrated by every-day events.
About two years ago an old lady
named Mrs. Lizzie Taylor died
in Junction City, having been
an invalid and dependent on
charity to some extent for some
time prior to her death,' her hus
band having died several years
before. Mrs. Taylor was a sister
to Mrs. Susan Starns of Corval
lis, and to relatives she had often
remarked that it was her belief
that her late husband had money
put away about the premises but
she knew not where. Recently
the house formerly occupied by
Mrs. Taylor was repaired and
underneath the dwelling, $8000
in cash was found, wrapped in
old rags. The finders, so the
story goes, quarreled over the
money and one man is said to
have "skipped" with the booty.
The story is vouched for by per
sons in this city, . familiar with
the circumstances, although the
complete details are not known.
