that he ask the superintendent oi
the prison to give him a test on
Hayden accepted the advice and
went out to the prison. "Bill" has
'roughed it" a good deal in his
time and is perhaps not as prepos
sessing in hia appearance as he
might be. The superintendent,
nevertheless, thought the request a
reasonable one and turned Hayden
over to Warden McPhearson. The
tareet was placed in position 100
yards away and Hayden was given
a prison rifle, with which he was
not familiar. Scarcely taking aim,
Hayden pumped three bullets into
the bullseye. Thinking that this
record was merely a "run of luek,"
the warden changed the target,
when Hayden repeated his accom
plishment. "You may report for duty to
morrow morning," was the only
comment the superintendent made
port and recom-aendation.
Havden has handled a rifle ever
since he was a small boy shooting
sauirrela and birds gave him skill
that he could not have gained in
any other way. He will be remem
bered by several hundred members
of the Second Oregon as "Hell
Roaring Bill" during the campaign
in the Philippines, where he served
as a member of that regiment.
When Tracy and Merrill were
surrounded in the woods near
Gervais a year ago, Hayden and
several others wero determined to
nlunee into the woods and bring
out the desperadoes or die in the
attempt. Sheriff Durbii would
not let them go, and in disgust
Hayden shouldered his rifle and
walked to Salem. He went back
on his farm and paid no more at
tention to Tracy and Merrill.
Hayden has been assigned to
duty as a night euard on the wall.
It may be presumed that having
seen an exhibition of the guard's
skill with the rifle and knowing
something of his . "style," Warden
McPhearson will not try to repeat
his feat of going oyer the wall at
night to test the vigilance of the
Special from Parker.
The Parker chess club -met at 2 ,
P. M. May 9, with D. M. Calbreath
in the chair. After a prompt re
sponse to roll call all of the mem
bers were chosen to participate in
the great intellectual battle which
followed. Each commamder ar
rayed his army with great skill
and caution and proceeded to at
tack his antagonist.
The pawns having only one way
to go moyed forward to the attack;
the horses took to their heels; the
kings sought safety in their eastles
and above the din and uproar
could be heard the pleadings of
the bishops for peace. The queens
attempted to "check" the kings in
their precipitous flight but without
avail and the victory was iosi io
both sides. Both aides seemed
well pleased with the results of the
game as each feared defeat.
