Iloy want eil the remainder of Ida money. To get II. is Seiiner had to get temporary accommodations. The bank eug jested itself and the needy man con ceived tli" idea tliut ho could get the money, apply to present needs, null his Eislern property aud replace la the bank without any one belief the wi.Mer. Tiiu first part yt the scheme worked. It la of the name piece of cloth as that cut into Jy someoi fii'ials having the caro of trust funds. They urf't Iheui expecting to replace, never looking at the word that spells "embezzlement." Helmor never thought of forgery. He only hud in mind ids fertile Oregon acres, Ins beautiful young wife and the op portunity for work at Ida favorite oeciipniioii. Keimer has been a farm r all his life und is not versed in the intricHciis of hanking. He la In truth not Hcipiaiuted with thf larger things in business mailers. A few days after U.rrowing the money, de positing a note signed by himself ami hearing what purpoted to be the signatures of Jacob Mauss, his father-in-law, and Bernard Osterman, his uncle, he started F.at-t to complete the miIi' of his laud there and get money to inert, within (10 days, his Oregon obligations.

He stopped theie but three days. He ImsiiMiid his return, arriving here last Saturday. He hurried to bin home mid found his hearthstone cold. His wife had gone to her father, lie, when John called, re lu--d in admit him or allow him to see or converse with her. Instead he was brandid as a forger. The man was atuiii.ed. On Sunday Slier ilt Sewi-ll found him sitting by the roadside pluiigid in deep despair, 1'assively he came to tnwuandwas Inil:;. d ill jail. There, wringing bin hands aiid with gri at tear drops in his eyes-, he speaks lle desire of his heart. "1 want to get out of here aud go to work on the larm. I want to be at work." His wife came down la-t Monday to see him, and declares that li.- will not desert her husband. Hiemer says ii will be only a few weks till he can realize on his Illi nois property, when hn will pay the forced note. Hut tbat will be no de fence against the. charge of forgery. Indeed he has no ilrieuso of auy kind, and there seems nothing to do but submit the case to the jury. Mlllli; TO TIIK ri iu.ic.

The line starts from Ashland eastward across the Cascade mountains to Klamath Falls. For about 30 miles of this dis tance the line runs through timber. Instead of felling the trees on the line they will lie used for poles. To do this, a pin about ten or twelve inches long will be used. About 1000 of these will be needed. The contract for making these out of fir lumber two inches scpiare and of the proper length has been let to L. W. House, of Hillslairo. He is now put ting them through the process oi manufacture. Another contract from this company comes to a mechanic here. Wiu. Benson will make 4500 iron insulator supports. Tbise sup ports are out of iron an inch wide, an eighth thick and six inches long, with three holes in each. After the mountains are passed poles will have to be set. SMALL MI! ITS. The people of Newlierg were great ly elated two years ago when it was proposed to build a l.eot sugar fact ory, but the enterprizo did not ma terialize. But the Newherg Graphic picks sour grapes Into this bas-ket: "The development of the small fruit Industry in this lm-ality will mean more to our land owners than would the establishment of tho Isn't sugar business. l his siaicmeni wouldn't have been popular when the canvass for beet acerage was lad ing made, but it Is a fact neverthe less. The small truit business at tracts a more desirable class of citi zens than would the sugar beet en terprise. Small fruits such as straw berries, can be raised with less labor and therefore less cost than sugar beets. More money can be realized on an acre of starwberrics or rasp- berries than from an acre of beets. The market, is sure and stable, there being no foreign competition. The beet sugar Industry is much at the mercy of our fluctuating government al policies, but high tariff, free trade Cuban concessions cuts no figure In the culture of the lucious red straw berry. Still the beet sugar industry is a goial thing w hich we would have liked to have had come this way. But if there is something 10-1 tir for us which we can l ave with one tenth the effort and expense, let's have It. There Is always the danger of underestimating those blessings which come naturally and easily." TheGrai.hic is right and we of Washington county ought lo I planting out Ptrawla-rry teds. If we overstock the market for fresh ls-r- ries. we can can them and ship to greater distance. 110 KS. M AR.SU -Marrh l!, limr rri.lcrville. to John Marah ami iff, twin danclilrra.

The colleges sending con testants were University of Oregon, Eugene; Oregon Agricultural Col lege, Corvalli?; Albany College, Wil lamette University, Bulera; McMiuu- villa College, Pacific College, New berg; Oregon State Normal School, Moumouth; and Pacific University, Forest Grove. The winners are W. G. Hale, Pacific University, Forest Grove, first, subject of oration, "John Brown of Ossawatomle;" second, Sternberg, of Albany, and third, Tartar, of Corvallls. The standing of Hale and Sternberg was a tie in oratory, but in composition Hale had 542 credits to 635 J for Stern berg. On Saturday it was noted that according to the figures reported by the judges an error in addition had been made in Hale's favor, which, corrected, would put Sternberg ahead and take the medal from Hale, but when the original figures were ex amined it appeared that the mistake was in copying the figures. The totals had been correctly copied, but some of the figures in the column that made the totals were wrong. When these had been corrected the totals were not disturbed, and Hale is the victor. The flurry for a while was ice water to tbe rejoicing of the student body at Forest Grove. Hale had beea husabed by his Hillsboro associates as he passed on the train Saturday evening, and at Forest Grove his fellows would not allow his feet to touch so common a thing as clay, wherefore on shoulders he went to his carriage. A receptlou and banquet came later. It was about over and the last blissful moments were passing when the tel egraph messenger deliveren the (lis- patch saying a mistake In figures had wo o Ix-en made and that Stcrnla?rg won. Hale was chargiued, but be said he had done his best and if he had not won he could not make the effort stronger, and he would have to be satisfied. But news of the final In spection camo Monday and the seren ity of Hale's fellow students was re stored. They had tieen more cast down than Hale himself. Hale is a 1 IillHlM.ro boy and at one time was an employee in the Inukikmdknt office. So we all shine by rellected light. Wells, Fargo A Compftny was or ganized April IS, 1852 and fur 50 years it has been an active factor In the development of the west. In its earlier history It carried letters as well as packages aud was patronized by the Argonauts when they had a letter that was to be lushed. The express was certain and expeditious but latterly, the mails beat the ex press, not only hours but in some in stances days. This Is due to the fact that the government requires the mails to go first. But the company yet does a business that is an accomo dation to the public. The Company this year celebrates the half century of its organization bypresenting each of its employees with a silver medal who has worked with it for a year or more. Mr. J. M. Brown, the Hillsboro agent, received his medal on tho 17, day before the Anniversary. It is a beautiful thing in silver, about the size of a dollar engraved in relief. On oue aide ap pears the express messenger on a running horse attacked by Indians armed with bow and arrow, just alntve is representation ol an advance step where the "Ikix" is carried in a four horse stage.

It is expected that tho county li i;h ury will be reimbursed by tho p.- -alties aud interest that will bo ic- ceived from delinquents. The Evening Journal has mad its appearance in Portland.
