In an off-hand " way
there was Sheriff Mlnto and his dep
uty, Hilly Kucli. from Marion county.
Before he hud time to finish the sen
tence the struugr took a duck aud
made himself scarce. The way he
ducked between the livery barn and
the old China house was something
Just about tblH,time Sheriff Mlnto
leaped from his buggy and took after
tte fleeing man, and right, here was
where the nervous system of . those
ta the vicinity was paralyzed. "What
is tho matter?", one would ask and
someone would answer his question
by HHkiitg,'"Wliat are they after him
for?" In less time than It takes to
-write it, a lurge portion of the people
In the vicinity were rushing up and
down the street bareheaded making
Inquiries of everyone they met, seek
ing Information relaiive to the cause
cf all the excitement.
The sheriff and his deputy were
too busy to stop and explain and of
course the man who was setting the
pace did not have time to fspure to
give the required information; in fact
be was in such a hurry to make a
irt-ftwav that he was ungentlemanly
enough to run into a woman who hap
pened to be in his path.
After a wlid chase lasting nearly
a half hour, which was joined in by
a large number of those who had
been attracted to the scene, including
Deputy Marshal Taylor, who happen
ed to be In the vicinity at the time,
extended through the Cooper hop
yards and then into the grain field
of Mr. Hill which adjoins the river
on the east. The capture waa made
by Deputy Sheriff Esch, who had tak
en the team and driven up the road
to a point from where he entered the
south end of the field. The fleeing
man, Who was being closely followed
by. Sheriff Minto and party, ran al
mtost into tho arms of the deputy
Bberlff who was laying In wait . for
him.' When he discovered the dep
uty he wheeled and started, to run
In the opposite drlectlon, but had not
o-nna far before he was stopped by
the officer who pulled his gun and or
hlm to throw up bis hands or he
would shoot him. As Esch has some
thing of a reputation as a marksman
the man, who had threw away his
gun in the bushes in his flight, threw
un his hands and was captured.
AftPr the excitement had subsided
it was learned from Sheriff Mlnto
remarked ilmtl that he has passed several forged i
checks recently.
variably look well, the grain the fin
est you ever seen, the orchards load
ed with lucious fruit, coru six feet j

summer's vacation. It is what you
might call a forced Vacation. In fact,
when he went down to his factory
Monday morning he had no intention
of taking a lay-off. But there are
tlmoa when we are all forced to do
things that we would not do If we
had our own way and this was one
of the times that Johnny had to take
an unannounced vacation in order to

boen engaged In any fistl,-- encount

we vr merely state that he met
with a very painful accident last Mon

Maley and Ed Owen are working the
hop yard, having a, three year lease.
The next, place Is that of J. R.
Cooper containing 100 acres, 45 be

devoted to mixed industries. On this
place there Is a field of corn, that
Is without exception the finest we
have seen anywhere outside of Kan
sas where it grows so tall that it
takes a sixteen-foot step ladder to
reach the ears. The trees in the 10
acre peach and apple, orchard, not
withstanding the fact that they have
been neglected for the past few years
are loaded down with fruit as fine as
you ever seen grow, and In numreous
cases the limbs were unable to bear
the weight and were broken down.
John Gentry, who is looking after Mr.
Cooper's farm Interest was busy
spraying hops.
The next place Is that of Sol Cox,
of which there are 40 acres. This

disnosed of his interests in -Yankee
Hollow and purchased the old Cox
farm of about 65 acres. Bill, as he
Is commonly called by his neighbors,
being of a thrifty turn of mind, was
busv painting his residence, which
he recently rebuilt and enlarged. In
fact, it could be seen at a glance that
there had been something doing at
the old place in the last few months.
Mr. Scott has the entire place under
cultivation including hay, grain,
alfalfa, garden truck, fruit and
berries of all kinds, and the crops

Then comes the Collins farm
David Jones, one of the largest
hop t growers in England passed
through the city Tuesday in company
with Conrad Krebs on a tour of in
spection of the hop yards in this sec
tion. Mr. Jones, who sailed from
r:."-jl::nd - Juiy 3d, reports the crops
looking very unfavorable at the time
of sailing. He has a 300-acre yard,
the yield of which last year was 25,
000 bales, and he predicted that it
would fall short at least 30 per cent
of that this year. Mr. Jones was
more than pleased with the condi
tion of the yards he had visited.
Installation of Officers.
At the Regular meeting of Homer
Lodge No. 45. K. of P., held in K.

lowwing officers were installed for

flourishing condition.
Closed Down Temporarily.
The saw mill of the Chas. K.
Spauldlng Logging Company closed
of a 1 couple of weeks. The reason
given out for the shutting down of
the mills is given out by the local
representative of the company here
Is owing to a scarcity of logs at the
company's mill at .Salem, which is
crowded with orders. The logs being
delivered here at present are heing
put Into the river and sent down to
Salem to keep that mill running. It
exDected that in a couple or
weeks the supply of logs received here
will be sufficient to keep both of the
plants in operation and then the mill
will be started up again.
