' A disgraceful affair was reported to
the Corvalll Xews of the 2nd, for
which the guilty party should 1
punished. Last evening a little boy
wu given whisky until he was so
badly Intoxicated that he was un
conscious and for a time In such a
condition that a physician was called
in to attend him. He was found
wandering alwut on the hack streets
and was afterward taken home by
his father who learned of his con
dition. The s-ron who it Is sai.l
gave the boy the whisky Is a young
man who knows better than to do
such a disgraceful act and shou'd Is
made' to -suffer for the unlau fulnew.
The matter no doubt will la? looked

Mrs. R. E. Iarsey has the honor
of introducing the first Denny pheas
ants Into Crook county, she having
arrived here from Willamette valley
last Monday with five of thesc.Umu

says theOehnco Review. Mrs. Ifctr
sey offered the birds to tho residents
of Prineville for l-'o. This amount
was readily raised, and the hints
were turned over to the care of Win,
CoiuIm, who took them to his farm
three miles aliove town, whero he
will care for them during the winter,
and next spring will turn them loose
to propagate. These birds Increase
very fast, one hen raising from twen
ty to thirty chicks each season, and
if not molested, these five will in a
few years stock tho whole county.
The only hindrance the Ixhepend-
EMT sees is the long tail that will

It is not generally known that a
great calamity was not long ago
averted on the Morrison street bridge,
similar to the one which hap?ned
on the other bridge last Wednesday
morning. One day a car became un
manageable and was heading straight
for destruction, when it was stopcd
at the wry brink by the almost fren
ried motorman. So close was the
car 'to making the fatal plunge, that
it ran against the gate and live pick
ets In it were actually broken in two.
They have never been replaced and
may yet be seen by any one who
will look. The company at once had
a notice, "Cars stop," posted 200 feet
from the draw and every motorman
was ordered to come to a dead stop
at that point whether the draw was
open or shut. A similar notice was
placed on the Steel bridge and one
should have been on the Free bridge.

Just heard from the eggs shipped to
the world's fair and that they reached
their destination with a loss of but
ninety-two out of the entire ship
ment of 40,000 which Is a remarkably
good showing. One not conversant
with the mysteries of piscatorial
lore would Infer that any kind of
fish eggs must be shipped in water,
but not so. The eggs were packed
in cotton flannel trays with flannel
on top of the eggs and between the
travs there was soread a layer of
moss evenly placet!, then on top of
the trays after all were safely jweked
In the rack was placed a quantity of
Ice which kept them ctsl and damp.
Packed in this way they made the
trip in safety and are now in trays nt

Discussing the situation in the
senate a democratic exchange says :
"Xo dejsit, no monarch, no czar In
all the history of the world ever
asserted a istwer more alnolute and
arbitrary than that which has been
conceded to a minority of the senate
of the United States," When Seok
er Reed was compelling a democratic
minority In the house to tranact
business decently and in oplcr, the
same paper from which this extract
is taken pronounced him also a
usurper and a czar. The opinions of
men change with the change in con
dition, especially when those men
happen to be democrats,

"I d ) hereby appoint the fourth

congregational legislation, having
made gold alone full legal tender
money, has so dwarfed and paralysed

national domain, who are not only
without employment, but are also
without the means of procuring food,

the policy of the fathers of the re
public, when-by our Industries may
be revived, and the honest toilers of

of their luUir."
Judge ' McBride was yesterday
talking over anecdotes of strange
court trials, as a result of which In
nocent men have been convicted and
hung or sent to Jail. Tne Judge re
called an instance in his own career
where a Jury convicted, and he was
about to sentence, a man for robbery,
against whom the strongest possible
case had been made out, when it was
found conclusively that the prison
er's story was absolutely true, and
the deductions drawn by the Jury all
false. A Frenchman near Oregon
City alsut eight years ago went to
a private house and wanted to buy a
cookstove. He wanted it badly, but
the woman who owned it declined to
sell. Four days after, the housj w,as
robbed and the stove taken. The
woman's suspicions were apajsed
against the Frenchman. His house
was seap-hed, and sure enough, there
was the cookstove. He was arrested
and tried. The defence was that he
had bought the stove from an un
known man who was passing his
residence with the article in a wagon.
He could not describe this man,
didn't rememlsr what the wagon
looked like, and altogether, the story
loooked very fishy. The prisoner
was convicted ami tho Judge was
about to pass sentence, when a
brawny Irishman came forward and
said that the Frenchman's story was
true, and that he, himself, had sold
him the stove. The Irishman was
the plaintiffs hultnd, and not de
siring to get Into hot water "witn
his oi l woman," hud waited until all
the chances of the innocent man's
acquittal had gone before making
the confeion. Judge McBride re
opened the case, and promptly re-
leased the prisoner. Astorian.

"What a curious wooden hammer,
"Yes, it was presented to lajia
many years ago by a lodge of some
kind that he was presiding over at
the time. I suppose ho used it when
he wanted to open the lodge or call
some brother to order."
"Speaking of lodges, Miss Lilian,
what do you think of men who Join
them and neglect ther-er-wlves and
all that sort of thing"
"I think they are not doing their
duty, Mr. Spoonamore."
"S-so tlo 1! We agree exactly on
that. A man who would alsindon
the society of his-his wife, you know,
to go down-town four or five times a
week, and meet a lot of other men
and go through the mummery they
call initiation, and smoke cigars,
and have a good time-why, it Isn't
right, you know."
The young woman toyed with the
little woden hammer and said
"And that's why I feel bold say,
Miss Lilian, that I think you and I
wouid-h'm-wnuld never have any
disagreements if-we should-because
that's the way I feel about lt, and
and I've never talked this way to
you before, you know, for I wasn't
exactly certain whether-and all that
sort of thing. When two js-rsons agn-e
on things like this, It stands to reason
that there might be other things they
would also-and you haven't known
me a great while ierhaps, but I feel
that you're the only woman In the
world I want to marry"

Caight a Bear With a Lass.
Last Tuesday while Joe Elliott
and his brother were out on a desert
near Prineville, eight miles south
west of this city, hunting horses,
they came across a bear and immed
iately gave chase. After following
bruin about two hours they succeeded
in roping the animal, one catching
it arouud the head and one foreleg,
th other by both hind feet. Joe
made his rope fast to a JuniiN-r tree
while his brother remained on his
horse and held the bear taut. Joe
then, with a small pocketknife, suc
ceeded lu cutting the bear's throat.
The bear was an Immense "Silver
Tip" and estimated to weigh 00
pounds, being quite fat. One tu-k
was broken short off, the other meas
ured three and three-fourths Inches
In length. Herald-Dissemlnat jr.
Think well before you cast your
ballot. Remember that a dollar
spent in the community may come
back to you in its active runds of
duty between the merchant, the
farmer and home manufacturer. But
when sent off to pup-hase foreign
supplies, It is withdrawn beyond
your reach and Is missed in the
activities of trade and lessens the
demand for your productions on the
farm and in the factory. Free trade
invites you to send your money
away, protection enables you to keep

In a considerable degree, too, society
must p'lnaiu at their mere)'. Every

til crankery transforms Itself into
crime it cannot come in con filet

Nevertheless, the community must
make a more intelligent effort than
it has hitherto tsayed to pptect
itself against these fissj of the social
oplcr. While every pptnouncetl or
recognized crank may not display or
thp-nten to display homicidal tend

place them, in some degree at least,
under a sort of surveillance, so that

he wreaked prompt and terrible
vengeance on the mayor for with

innumerable difficulties. Lunatics
