Mr. John 1! Mump, tin well

It lis all the characteristic of the
purest Turkey mohair. It in soft,

Average Turkey mohair.
We. are not comparing thin with
any other domestic hair; only with
the b Ht bred Turkey lmir, and it
Ih only by very careful (selection
out of ft good null!)' hides of the
bent Turkey that we could pick
UH a number of lleecea that would
be a good as Ibis sample lot of
fleeces. If the climate and feed of
Oregon will permit the goats, from
which thin mohair was taken, to
retain tin qualities which have
been bred in them the result will
surpass anything that we have yet
seen in the way of Amerionu-bred
We believe that we have already
received or have on the way to us
more than half of all the best
American mohair that has been
sheared this spring, and it has
been very satisfactory to us to find
so much improvement in quality
in many of the large lots, and such
exceptional success as we find in
the sample lot you have just sent
11s, and in similar lots which we
hive received from other growers
who have asked us for an expert
opinion. The value of this mohai'
is 45 cents per pound. We would
instantly close a trade for one hun
dred thousand pounds of the same
quality at the same price.

Stump, hut everyone interested in
pure bred stock ought to be proud,
and the price received should stim

ACCIIKXT AT HVI.LSTOX.
l-ter Xulrri Fell Asainst Boiler
of F.njciiie and Was Fright
An appalling accident, of which
I'eter Nairn was the victim, occurr-
d Lt Hit! lston luesdav morning.
Th voumr man. who is about 22
vears ot age. was working wiin a
" J - - - (3
steam wood-tawing outfit on his
father's farm at that place, and had
ulimbed on top of the engine to do
some oiling, when his clothing
caught in the moving machinery
and he was thrown violently tor-
ward into dangerous proximity to
the rapidly revolving fly-wheel.
Every stitch of clothing was strip
ped from his body in an instant,
and to save himself from being torn
to pieces he grasped the smoke
stack with both hands. This
threw his naked body against the
boiler, and rendered him absolutely
unable to help himself. The steam
was shut off as quickly as possible
and he was extricated from his
awful position, not however until
he had been fearfully burned about
his side and hip. The flesh for a
space of about twelve inches in
length was literally cooked, and his
hands were frightfullv burned from
coming in contact with the smoke
stack. He was otherwise seriously
burned and bruised. A phyeician
was summoned from Amity and
everything possible done to alleviate
his sultermg. At a late nour
yesterday afternoon the young man
was still alive, and a sngni nope is
entertained of bis recovery. -Obser

BODY NOT IDENTIFIED.
Man Supposed to Have Jleeu Hell
I'roves to be Another.
PROBABLY ALWAYS REMAIN MYSTERY.
Coroner' liiijiieMt Produce X
l;videiice and Could Throw
Xo Light on Matter.
The coroner's inquest, held over
the body found Thursday in the
American Bottom, a few miles
south of here, resulted in practi
cally no new light being shed on
the mystery. Nothing but por
tions of a human skeleton, covered
with particles of cloth, was dis
covered. The place where the
bones were found is under water
throughout the wet season, though
it is farmed in the summer time.
The lower jaw was found about 200
feet farther down the river, and it
is by this part of the anatomy an
identification wag hoped for. The
teeth were small, crowded and well
preserved, with theexception of two
teeth adjoining each other, which'
were missing. Particles of clothe
worn by the mau would indicate a
blue uniform, and the theory that
the man waa the son of Captain
Bell was generally conceded by the
member of Coroner Wood's jury.
What bones of the body could
be collected together were brought
to town by the coroner, and it was
hoped to communicate with Cap
tain Bell, running on the steamer.
Pomona, and ascertain if he could
identify them. Captain Bell, how
ever, had stopped off at McMinn
ville, and it will te a day or so be
fore he can have 'the opportunity
of viewing tin remains.
Suday'mot'nii;g, however, Chris
a brother of the supposed
deud man, accompanied by a friend
named rerrell, came up from Port
land, were taken to the oflice of J.
I). Irvine, where the bones were
stored away, and permitted to ex
amine them. Both men were posi
tive that the remains were not of
young Bell. In the first place,
Hell never wore a shoe over a Vo.
5, while the shoe found was easily
a number 7- The lower jaw of the
dead man had teeth very uneven,
while both men testified that Bell's
teeth were even, very small, and
had many fillings. The bones
would indicate a tall erect man;
Bell was about five feet s id very
stooped. The blue uniform was
the only thing in common.
Who, or how the body came
where it was, seems to be destined
a mystery. And the most mys
terious part of it is that this is the
third body to be found within a
radius of a few miles during the
past three years, and the identity
of each seems to be destined to for
ever remain a secret. In the other
t wo instances evidence of violent
death by suicide or murder was
easily ascertainable. In this in
stance there is no hope of ever as
certaining even the method by
which the man met his death.
