Attempt to Kidnap Commodore
jSutt. As the Union Pacific west
bound passenger tram stopped at Co
y,ad, in western Nebraska lately, a
bold attempt was made to steal Com
modore Nutt, who was on his way to
San Francisco with a party of other
dwarfs. A couple of stalwart and
knavish appearing men, who took the
train at Omaha and had tickets to Co-
z paying the extra charge for riding
in the sleeper, are supposed to be the
parties to the affair. Just before the
train arrived at the station, both of
these men one a few feet ahead of
the other moved toward the rear of
the car, in which end the Commodore
was sleeping. One stopped near the
little man's berth, and the other stood
near the door. As the tram came to
a halt the rear man thrust his arms
into 2s utt's berth and gathered him up

Our State Pun.
From tliu Standard, Oct. 9.
The "StatepFair is the great gala tune?
of the people of Oregon. It is more
of an event, socially, than the Pion
eers' reunion, because while the latter
only brings together the "old resident
ers" as the phrase goes, and who have
only to repeat to one another their oft
told talcs of early adventure, the for
mer infuses into an Oregon holiday
new folk, new life, new character and
a fresher audience for the old pioneers.
It lacks the exclusiveness of the pio
near reunion, and to that extent at least
must be more attractive. In this con
nection we will say that it is a very
silly objection sometimes made by "old
residenters" against joining the pio
neer society, because people are admit
ted who only came here in 1853. Why,
says a "46-er," what do they know
about pioneer life True, in some
measure, but retailers of pioneer jokes
must have fresh auditors occasionally
you know. But no such objection
exists as to the State Fair. If the
weather had only proved dry the
crowd would have simply been im
mense. People from all over the state
would have been there camping out
with their wagons and furnishing a
complete view of Oregon life. Many
from the Territories wanted to come,
but it is likely some of them have been
deterred by the showery weather.
However there is now a promise of fine
weather and we may exxect quite a
gathering by to-morrow.
INVEST IN LANDS.
Althoughan investment in Real
Estate may not at once prove lucra
tive and yield an immediate income
to the purchaser, we have found,
from many years experience, that all
judicious investments made, either in
farming lands or suburban property
adjoining a growing and prosperous
city like this, invariably result in &
fine speculation, or at all events ir
one that is doubly sure for a good
In the products of the soil all
wealth has its origin. The indus
trious fanner must a'.tviys have a
market for his wares. What he has
to sell are the absolute necessities of
life, and he that does not produce
them must obtain them of him who
Whatever may be a man's business,
however much money he may control,
he must look to the tiller of the soil
for that which will sustain life. There
may be local derangements, but on
the whole there is of necessity n
market for every important product,
and the producer must always be sure
of his living, so long, at least, as he
is the owner of the land he cultivates.
In every department of life sunshine
and shadow alternate, but if tlie
foundation fails, the ruin of the?
superstructure is inevitable.
The possession of Real Estate is a
substantial capital. If ones title id
good, no thief can steal it; it needs no
insurance policy to make it safe;
nothing short of an earthquake can
swallow it. A good farm or surbnr
ban garden, with rich soil, judicious
ly managed, whether its commercial
gold value go up or down, is still the
source of good and comfortable liv
ing. Whatever else a man may
possess, lie cannot afford to do with
