Staple place last l'riday afternoon
lie noticed that the door or the
house was standing open but did
not see Mr. Staples, and on his re
turn wltu the 'iita'tl next day saw
the door still open ' mid tliilt. Mr.
Staples' snail was still, in thc.mall
box in front of the house. Think
ing that something1 'was vronp, he
mentioned the matter to Mr. W.

r'ace. Mr. Hawley nt once pro-
ceeded to tho Staples place, and af
ter a shoVt search found the lifeless
'body a short distance nhtrve the

""Colonel Ulair of the Hotel Sher

called Colonel Blair a liar, and
the colonel struck Clark. They

Blair came into it, claiming that
his intentions were to get his
father toquit: 'Mr. Hardy 'of the
Imperial Hotel, mistaking Hob's
motives, took hold of Bob. Hob mis
taking .Mr. Hardy's motives, .and
thinking he also wanted to fight,

Dear Mr. Howard: I am going
east about the first of May to the
Buffalo exposition nud will also
visit several large citleii.in the cast
particularly Bohemia aud the min
eral resources. The commissioners
appointe'd' by thjs, slate, ore not
willing to advance anything in the
interests of Lane county and I have
taken this matter up myself. Am
going'tb' make a' slrongiiull for Bo
hemia, one Collage Grove. What
I want you to do is to get inc some
of the very finest samples of ore
possible from the Bohemia mines.
Not large, but rich. I .will have to
pay freight on them to Buffalo,
hence I cannot afford to take large
samples. I believe it would be
only fair if the' citizens and the
business men of Cottage Grove
would make up mono to pay the
freight, say oh 2, or'' hundred
pound of ore to Buffalo. I will
defray my own expenses and ex
pect to talk. Bohemia mines from
one side ol the continent to the
other. Ah I said above, I want to
start about the 1st of May. If you
think it advisable for me to come
up to asist in this collection I will
do so. .
