FRIDAY, JANIAKY 31, 1901.
Now is the time for the average
easterner to get in his yarn about
how cold it "ustcr lie back home."
The last few days hasn't been a
very appropriate time to compare
the Wcbfoot country with Minne
sota and Dakota.

Miss Portia Knight of Salem got
$50,000 in place of $5,000, as here

father-in-law paid the money.
It is said that the first apples
grown in Oregon were from the
seeds of four apples brought over
from England by the Hudson Bay
Company and planted in 1846 at
Vancouver by P. C. Pambourne,
father of the late Mrs. Dr Barclay
of Oregon City and Mrs. Mc
Cracken of Portland. It was six
years before they bore friut which

A recent dispatch says that yield
ing to the protests of relatives of the
ex-president, Mrs. Benjamin Harri
son has requested those advocating
her claims to a pension to abandon
their efforts in that direction. She
married the ex-president after he
had retired to private life and was
in no sense such a widow as would
be entitled to pension, besides the
ex-president left her with a splen

Blanche Walsh, an actress who
is now playing "Janice Meredith"
in the east, and who is well known
in Portland, has become a convert
to the belief of Buddhism, and her
dressing rooms have been turned
into temples for the worship of the
light of Asia. A figure ot Buddha,
almost life size, embowered in rich
plush curtains of deep yellow, the
color of the Buddhist priestly robes,
fills one corner of the star's room in
each theater she visits this season.
Laud hunters are waking up to
the value of Oregon timber lands.
Twenty-one timber claims were
filed in the Oregon City Land
Office last Thursday, embracing a
total of 3360 acres in Benton
county This land has not been
heretofore unknown, most of it hav
ing been taken in past years under
the homestead law, but relinquished
for the reason, perhaps, of the la
bor involved in clearing and put
ting it under the plow. Oregon
timber was not a valuable asset in
those days, for the very sufficient
reason that the local lumber mar
ket was easily glutted and lumber
shipping had not reached the pro
portions of a paying iudmtry. To
subdue the forests to agriculture
wus enormously laborious, and
therefore unprofitable. But the
timber districts abandoned by dis
couraged homeseekers have been
re-discovered, so to speak, by the
timber-land seeker, who will sooner
or later realize handsomely upon

Dalton turns down the light fawn

a lie upon his lips. No authentic

In the 33 counties of the state
there arei2, 887, 627 acres of non
tillable land assessed for $28,566,
794, or an average of $2.22 per
acre. Clackamas county is assessed
higher on these lands than any
county in the state outside of
Multnomah. Clackamas has 410,-
642 acres assessed for $1,522,365 or
approximately, $3 50 per acre.
Multnomah has 198,238 acres as
sessed for $5,641,740 or about $28
per acre. Linn county, our north
ern neighbor, has 531,323 acres of
non-tillable laud that is assessed for
$1,530,114 or nearly $3 per acre.
Douglas countv has more acres of
non-tillable land, than any other
county in the state the amount
being 1,292,382 which is assessed
for $1,330, 140 or a fraction over$i
per acre. Lane is a close second
with 1,053,361 acres on which we
are assessed $1,569,458 or an
average of $1.43 per acre. On
these lands the assessment over the
state could easily be raised $25,000,-
000 with fairness to the owners and
justice to the rest of the taxpayers.
It is a pleasure to note the in
terest Eugene people, geuerally
speaking, trke in Cottage Grove
and the Bohemia Mining District.
It is also, worthy of note that the
energetic people of Cottage Grove
and Bohemia take the same friendly
interest in Eugene and the Blue
River Mining District. This is as
it should be. It is time all strife
and animosity should be. made to
go "way back and sit down," and
the people of Lane county uphold
and work for the good of the
county at large. With the proper
display of energy on the part of the
people, the day is near at hand

panoramic vision to her delighted
